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 then show 'SET CLOCK'. During this time the radio is
scanning to find out which DAB radio stations are available. After a
short time the current time and day will appear on the display.

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 clock radio from the mains completely, the mains adaptor should be
removed from the mains socket outlet completely.
Characters appearing on the LCD display indicate that the radio is connected
to and powered from the mains supply.

Stereo / Mono setting - FM
Your radio will play stereo FM broadcasts in stereo provided that the
received signal is of adequate strength. However, as a stereo signal
becomes weaker the audio signal will become poorer. It may be preferable
to force the radio to play the station in mono in order to reduce the level
of backgound hiss.

4. If you wish to cancel the Mono override while listening to the currently
tuned radio station, press and hold the Select button until the display
