Using the DAB Radio
Scanning for DAB stations
Telescopic aerial
With DAB radio, additional stations and services regularly become
available so it’s a good idea to carry out a manual scan every now
and then to make sure that you have the most up to date station
listing stored within the memory of your radio. If you have moved
your radio to another location in your home or you have taken
your radio on holiday, then it’s a good idea to carry out a manual
scan.
Please make sure that the aerial is fully extended before
you attempt to tune to a DAB station (a vertical position is
recommended). This will ensure that the maximum signal strength
is available when the radio begins to scan. Extending the aerial
also ensures the best possible sound quality.
DAB Radio mode
Check that your radio is in DAB mode. If you are not already in DAB
mode, press and release the ‘Mode’ button to go to DAB mode
(check the display).
The first time you use the radio or if the station list is empty, your
radio will automatically begin to scan for DAB radio stations. A
progress bar will show the progress of the scan and the number of
stations found during the scan will also be displayed.
If you were listening to a DAB station when you switched the radio
off then this station will be automatically selected when you switch
the radio back on.
Changing DAB stations

preset, it will be overwritten when you store the new station.
In DAB mode:
Dynamic Label Segment (DLS)
•
Program Type (PTY) - such as ‘Rock’, ‘Pop‘, Talk’ or ‘News’
•
Multiplex Name - displays the broadcasting area and
collection of radio stations on this frequency e.g.: BBC
National DAB, Digital 1 Network.
•
Channel and Frequency - e.g.: 12B 225.648 MHz

Signal error
Dynamic range control (DRC)
This is displayed as a number between 0-99. It would not be
possible to satisfactorily listen to a ratio station with a signal
error rate of 30 or above. Try adjusting the aerial or relocating
your radio to improve reception.
In DAB mode:
Signal information
The data rate at which the signal is being transmitted.
•
Time and date
Supplied by the broadcaster.
1.
Repeatedly press and release the ‘Menu’ button on the top of
the radio to cycle through the different information options.
The dynamic range for each radio programme is set by the
broadcaster for each radio station and may be different for the
types of programme broadcast, such as pop or classical music or
a chat show. The dynamic range control signal is transmitted in
parallel with the audio signal for each programme and with your
radio you can use this control signal to expand or compress the
dynamic range (the difference between the loudest and quietest
sounds) of the reproduced audio signal. Changing the dynamic
range can affect the ‘loudness’ and/or ‘quality of sound’ of the
programme that you hear so that it will be more suited to your
listening conditions and your own personal listening requirements.
e.g. in a noisy environment, where quiet sounds might be
swamped, setting the compression to maximum will ‘boost’ the
quiet sounds, whilst keeping the loudest sounds at their original
level.
There are 3 levels of compression:
DRC Off:
no compression. This is the default setting.
DRC Low:
medium compression.
DRC High: maximum compression.
16
1.
Press and hold the ‘Menu’ button until ‘<Preset Store>’ is
displayed.
2.
Press and release the ‘Prev’ or ‘Next’ button until ‘<DRC>’ is
displayed.
3.
Press and release the ‘Select/Snooze’ button to select. The
current DRC setting will have an ‘*’ in the top right of the
display.
4.
Use the ‘Prev’ or ‘Next’ buttons to scroll through the 3
compression level options available and press the ‘Select/
Snooze’ button to select. Press and release the ‘Menu’ button
to return to the station display.
17
Using the FM Radio
There are two different options to choose from:
Telescopic aerial
Strong stations
Please make sure that the aerial is fully extended before you
attempt to tune to an FM station. This will ensure that the
maximum signal strength is available when the radio begins to
scan. Extending the aerial also ensures the best possible sound
quality.
The scan will only stop when a strong signal strength is
received which should also result in a better audio quality. It is
possible that the station you are scanning for may be missed
using this option.
All stations
The scan will stop for every station it receives, even if the
signal strength is poor.
FM Radio mode
If you are not already in FM mode, briefly press and release the
‘Mode’ button to go to FM mode (check the display).
3.
If you were listening to an FM station when you switched the Radio
off then this station will be automatically selected when you switch
the Radio back on.
Use the ‘Prev’ or ‘Next’ buttons to choose from the two
options available and press the ‘Select/Snooze’ button to
select. Press and release the ‘Menu’ button to return to the
station display.
Audio mode
Tuning to an FM station
Press and hold the ‘Next’ button to scan up the frequency band.
Press and hold the ‘Prev’ button to scan down the frequency band.
Press and release the ‘Next’ or ‘Prev’ buttons to fine tune each
frequency in 0.05MHz steps.
Note: If reception is still poor adjust the position of the aerial or try
moving the radio to another location.
Changing the Scan setting
In FM mode:
The radio will automatically switch between Stereo and Mono,
depending on the quality of the signal being received but you can
override this function and manually switch between ‘Forced mono’
and ‘Stereo allowed’.
