Finally i have found the reason as to why a us radio will not work. I was given the following reason through sony direct:

US cd players tune into odd frequencies e.g. 97.1, 97.3, 97.5 etc where as UK radios tune into even frequencies e.g. 96.4, 102.2 although I assume we can also tune into the odd frequencies otherwise i would not be able to receive radio 1. There fore the US radio would only pick up odd frequencies and not the even leaving you with a limited amount of frequencies to tune into (odd only)

To overcome this problem you simply buy a band expander for the radio which plugs into the unit and allows all frequencies to be received…somehow..

Hope this helps people like myself who are going to save over £80 on a us imported sony f7700 :D
