Radio Data System ( RDS )
The Radio Data System ( RDS ) is a system in which inaudible digital information is
transmitted in addition to the normal FM radio program . RDS offers several useful features ,
the followings are available on your radio .
Program Service (PS) name
The Program Service name is a text usually consisting of not more than eight alphanumeric
characters . It indicates information about the program being broadcast . A station name or an
abbreviation is shown in the display instead of the tuned frequency ( Example : BBC R4 ) .
Enhanced Other Network (EON)
Additional information about other programs within the same network is transmitted when your
broadcasting station is using an Enhanced Other Network . You will hear traffic flashes of other
programs within the network automatically if the Traffic Announcement function is switched
on .
Traffic Information System
The Traffic Program identification (TP) indicates which RDS stations provide Traffic
information . The Traffic Announcement identification (TA) indicates Traffic information is being
broadcast . When TA is received , the
symbol will flash in the display .
Clock Time (CT) automatic adjustment
The Clock Time information transmitted from the broadcasting station can be used for setting
and synchronizing the clock of your radio automatically . The Auto-Time function can be
enabled or disabled by the user .
Alternative Frequencies (AF)
This feature provides a list of Alternative Frequencies for the station being received . You can
switch to those frequencies directly if desired .
Operating your radio using RDS ( Radio Data System )
1. Switch on your radio and select the FM waveband .
2. Tune into a station , the display will indicate frequency for a few seconds and then change
to show the station name . The RDS symbol
will appear in the display .
3. If the station does not carry RDS information only the station frequency will be shown .
4. The RDS symbol
will flash if the signal is too weak for RDS operation .
Alternative Frequency (AF)
The RDS system provides a list of alternative frequencies for the station you are tuned to .
1. Switch on your radio and select the FM waveband . Tune into a station carrying RDS
information .
2. Press the AF button , your radio will scan the list of alternative frequencies and select the
one giving best reception . If AF information has not yet been received or is not provided
by the station you are listening to , the radio will remain at the current frequency and the
display will indicate NO AF .
Traffic Announcement (TA)
1. Switch on the radio , select the FM waveband and tune to an RDS station . The
symbol will appear in the display .
2. Press the Traffic button
will appear in the display .
, if the station provides traffic information , the
symbol
3. If the station does not provide traffic information , the
symbol will not appear and the
radio will display NO TP/TA indicating that no traffic information is available .
4. During the traffic announcement , the
symbol will flash in the display .
5. If the radio is tuned to a national stations such as BBC Radio 4 , it will automatically re-tune
to any BBC local station broadcasting traffic announcements . When the traffic announcement
is finished , the radio will re-tune to the previously selected station . There may be occasions
when the station to which you are listening tells the radio re-tune to a traffic announcement on
a local station that is not receivable at your location . Under these circumstances , there will be
some hiss before the radio re-tunes back to the previously selected station .
6. To turn off traffic information , press Traffic button
from the display .
, the symbol
will be removed

symbol indicating the input signal has been attenuated .
REC OUT socket
On the rear of your radio is for use with a tape recording/mini disc or to allow connection to line
input of a Hi-Fi system . The signal on the Record out socket is unaffected by the volume
control .
External 12V DC Input
If mains supply is not available , your radio may be powered by 12V DC via the rear mounted
12V DC supply at 1A with the center pin of the plug positive .
Headphone use
Headphone use with this radio should be fitted with a 3.5 mm jack plug . Insert the headphones
plug into the socket on the front of the radio marked
. When the headphones are plugged
