CONNECTIONS
ANTENNA CONNECTIONS
●
●
Each antenna should be connected to the designated terminals correctly, referring to the following figure.
Both AM and FM indoor antennas are included with this unit. In general, these antennas will probably provide sufficient signal
strength. Nevertheless, a properly installed outdoor antenna will give clearer reception than an indoor one. If you experience
poor reception quality, an outdoor antenna may result in improvement.

Orient so that the best
reception is obtained.
* If you connect an outdoor FM antenna to this unit, do not connect the indoor FM antenna to this unit.
* The AM loop antenna should be placed apart from the main unit. The antenna may be hung on a wall.
* The AM loop antenna should be kept connected, even if an outdoor AM antenna is connected to this unit.
m Optional outdoor FM antenna
Consult with your dealer or authorized service center about the
best method of selecting and erecting an outdoor FM antenna.
The choice of the feeder cable is also important. Flat ribbonshaped twin-lead cable performs well electrically, and is
cheaper and somewhat easier to handle when routing it
through windows and around rooms. Coaxial cable is more
expensive, does a much better job of minimizing interference,
is less prone to the effects of weather and close-by metal
objects, and is nearly as good a signal conductor as feeder
cable, particularly for foam-type coaxial cables. Coaxial cable
is somewhat more difficult to install at the point where the
cable enters the building. If coaxial cable is selected, make
sure the antenna is designed to be used with that type of
cable.

Notes for FM antenna installation
● To minimize automobile ignition noise, locate the antenna
as far from heavy traffic as possible.
● Keep the feeder cable or coaxial cable as short as possible.
Do not bundle or roll up excess cable.
● The antenna should be at least two meters (6.6 feet) from
reinforced concrete walls or metal structures.
m Optional outdoor AM antenna
In steel buildings or at a great distance from the transmitter, it
may be necessary to install an outside long wire antenna.
GND terminal
For maximum safety and minimum interference, connect
the GND terminal to a good earth ground. A good earth
ground is a metal stake driven into moist earth.

RDS (Radio Data System) is a data transmission system gradually being introduced by FM stations in many countries. Stations
using this system transmit an inaudible stream of data in addition to the normal radio signal.
RDS data contains various information, such as PI (Program Identification), PS (Program Service name), PTY (Program Type), RT
(Radio Text), CT (Clock Time), EON (Enhanced Other Networks), etc.
RDS function is carried out among the network stations.
* This unit utilizes PI, PS, PTY, RT, CT and EON to receive RDS broadcast stations.

Changing the RDS modes
When an RDS station is received, “PS”, “PTY”, “RT” and/or “CT” that correspond to the RDS data services employed by the station
light up on the display. By pressing the RDS MODE/FREQ button once or more, you can change the display mode among the RDS
modes employed by the received station in the order shown below. (The RDS mode not employed by the station cannot be selected.)
Illumination of the indicator on the head of a name of RDS mode shows that the corresponding RDS mode is now selected.
* When an RDS station is received, do not press the RDS MODE/FREQ button until one or some names of RDS modes light up on
the display. If the button is pressed before one or some names light up on the display, the mode cannot be changed. This is
because the unit has not received all of the RDS data on the station yet.
* If no name of RDS mode lights up on the display, the mode cannot be changed.
PS mode
The name of the station being received is displayed.
If the station does not employ the PS data service, this mode
will not be selected.
PTY mode
The type of the program on the station being received is
displayed. If the station does not employ the PTY data
service, this mode will not be selected.
(You can make this unit search for a station which is
broadcasting a program of your desired program type. For
details, refer to the next page.)
RT mode
Information about the program on the station being received
is displayed. Information is displayed by a maximum of 64
Roman Alphabets including umlaut sign. If other characters
are used on the RT data, they are displayed with under-bars.
If the station does not employ the RT data service, this mode
will not be selected.
CT mode
Current time is displayed in the following form. The CT data
from the station being received changes every minute.
RDS MODE/FREQ

If the data is accidentally cut off, “CT WAIT” may light up.
If the station does not employ the CT data service, this mode
will not be selected.
Frequency
display mode
The frequency of the station being received is displayed.
Notes
● RDS data service cannot be utilized by this unit if the received signal is not strong enough. Especially, the RT (Radio Text mode)
needs much data to be received, so it may occur that RT mode cannot be displayed even if other RDS modes (PS, PTY, etc.) are
displayed.
● There may be a case that RDS data reception is not possible due to poor reception conditions. If so, press the TUNING MODE
button so that “AUTO” goes off from the display. Though the reception mode is changed to monaural by this operation, when you
change the display to an RDS mode, RDS data may be displayed.
● If the signal strength gets weakened by external interference during receiving an RDS station, the RDS data service may be cut
off suddenly and “... WAIT” will light up on the display.

Making this unit call a program of your desired program type automatically
when its broadcast starts
This function uses the EON (Enhanced Other Networks) data service on the RDS station network.
By only selecting a desired program type (NEWS, INFO, AFFAIRS or SPORT), this unit automatically searches all preset RDS
stations for a station that broadcasts a program of that program type in the background, and, if found, receives a program when its
broadcast starts in place of the program now being received.
* This function can be used only when an RDS station that employs the EON data service is received. (When such a station is
received, “EON” lights up on the display.)

TROUBLESHOOTING
If the unit fails to operate normally, check the following points to determine whether the fault can be corrected by the simple
measures suggested. If it cannot be corrected, or if the fault is not listed in the SYMPTOM column, disconnect the power cord and
contact your authorized YAMAHA dealer or service center for help.
SYMPTOM
The FM antenna should be put up as high
as possible, away from the road, and a
coaxial cable used.
Noise from thermostats or other electrical
equipment.
Attach a noise suppressor to the equipment
causing the noise.
FM stereo reception is noisy.
Because of the characteristics of FM stereo
broadcasts, this is limited to cases where
the transmitter is far away or the antenna
input is poor.
Check the antenna connections.
Try using a high quality directional FM
antenna.
Set the TUNING MODE button to the
manual tuning mode.
The STEREO indicator flickers and
reception is noisy.
Insufficient antenna input.
Use an antenna appropriate for the
reception condition in your area.
Not tuned correctly.
Tune again.
There is distortion and clear reception
cannot be obtained even with a good FM
antenna.
There is multipath interference.
Adjust antenna placement to eliminate multipath interference.
No stereo effect even with a stereo
broadcast.
The TUNING MODE button is set to the
manual tuning mode.
Set the button so that “AUTO” lights up on
the display.
A desired station cannot be tuned in with
the automatic tuning method.
The station is too weak.
Use the manual tuning method.
Use a high quality directional FM antenna.
Previously preset stations can no longer
be tuned in.
The tuner has been unplugged for a long
period.
Repeat the presetting procedure.
Insufficient sensitivity.
Weak signal or loose antenna connections.
Tighten the AM loop antenna connections
and rotate it for best reception.
AM
A desired station cannot be tuned in with
the automatic tuning method.
18
REMEDY
Ignition noise from passing vehicles.
FM
Crackling sounds from time to time
(especially in weak signal areas).
CAUSE
Use the manual tuning method.
There are continuous crackling and
hissing noises.
These noises result from lightning,
fluorescent lamps, motors, thermostats and
other electrical equipment.
Use an outdoor antenna and a ground wire.
This will help somewhat but it is difficult to
eliminate all noises.
There are buzzing and whining noises
(especially in the evening).
Another station is interfering with the
received station.
This is impossible to remedy.
A television set is being used nearby.
Relocate this unit away from the TV.
