Using the radio for the first time
1. Place your radio on a flat surface.
2. Fully extend the telescopic aerial. The aerial should be fully extended
and positioned vertically for optimum reception.
1.5A
3. Insert the adaptor plug into the DC socket located on the rear of your
radio. Plug the adaptor into a standard 13 amp mains socket outlet.
The display will show 'Welcome to Digital Radio' for a few seconds.
After a short time the current time and date will appear on the display.
During this time the radio is scanning to find a DAB radio signal.
4. If no signals are found, 'Time is not set' will be displayed. It may be
necessary to relocate your radio to a position giving better reception.
You should then carry out a scan to find stations as described on
page 13.
IMPORTANT: The mains adaptor is used as the means of connecting
the radio to the mains supply. The mains socket used for the 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.
Characters appearing on the LCD display or the power light being illuminated
indicates that the radio is connected to and powered from the mains supply.
