Using the clock radio for the first time
1. Place your clock radio on a flat surface.
2. Fully extend the wire aerial located on the rear of your clock radio.
Place the wire antenna so that it is as straight as possible extending
either above or below the radio.
3. Insert the adaptor plug into the DC socket located on the rear of your
clock radio. Plug the adaptor into a standard 13 amp mains socket
outlet. The display will show 'Roberts' for a few seconds and then the
display will show 'Clock not set' and the clock digits will flash. The
clock hands will then move to 12:00.
4. Press and release the On / Off button.The radio will scan for DAB
signals and if a DAB signal is found it will then set the current time and
date. (This will be displayed if you return the clock radio to standby).
The clock hands will then move to show the correct time.
5. If no stations are found, 'Clock not set' will be displayed. It may be
necessary to relocate your clock radio to a position giving better
reception. You should then carry out a scan to find stations as described
on page 8.
•
IMPORTANT: The mains adaptor is used as the means of connecting
the clock radio to the mains supply. The mains socket used
for the clock radio must remain accessible during normal use. In order
to disconnect the radio from the mains completely, the mains
adaptor should be removed from the mains socket outlet
completely.

3. Press and release the Band button until the DAB mode is selected.
The display will show 'DAB Mode' for a few seconds.
4. If this is the first time the clock radio is used a scan of Band III DAB
channels may be carried out (depending on whether scanning was
already completed in standby mode). If the radio has been used before,
the last used station will be selected.
5. When first switched on, the first station in the list of stations found will
be played. The display will show the station name on the upper line
of the text display and broadcast information on the lower line.
6. If the station list is still empty after the scan operation or if there are
no signals found it may be necessary to relocate your clock radio to
a position giving better reception, and then repeat the scan using the
Auto-tune facility (see 'Finding New Stations' on page 8).
Note: that radio station name and frequency displays shown in this user
guide may differ from those that you see on your radio. Broadcasters may
change radio station names that are transmitted, and the frequencies
used for DAB and FM radio stations may not be the same in all parts of
the country.

Your clock radio has four separate alarms which can be set to wake you to
radio (DAB, FM) or buzzer alarm. Each alarm can be set to sound once,
daily, on weekdays or at weekends. The alarms can be set whether the
clock radio is on or in standby mode. In the event of a power interruption
your clock radio has a built in memory chip that will maintain all your alarm
settings for when the power is restored.
Before setting an alarm ensure that the clock time is set correctly see
page 25.

the intensity of the display to suit the ambient room lighting when the clock
radio is in standby mode and when it is switched on.

Dimmer button on the top of your radio to select the dimmer brightness

Depending on the ambient light level, the lowest of the On settings
may appear to be off during the day. It is intended to be a very low
level for night-time use, although the Off level is provided for those
users who prefer complete darkness.
