Using your Mono DAB/FM Radio
Let’s get started
Telescopic aerial
Please make sure that the aerial is fully extended before you switch on your radio and
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.
Switch on
1. Press and release the Power button on the top of your radio. Your radio will switch on
and begin an automatic scan for DAB stations. A progress bar will show the progress
of the scan and the number of stations found during the scan will also be displayed.
Note: When using battery power, your radio will scan for DAB stations after you slide
the On/Off power switch on the back of the radio to On. There is no Standby mode
when you are using battery power.
2. When the scan is complete your radio will select the first available station and begin to
play. Stations are listed in numerical and then alphabetical order by default.
Note: The DAB radio station list is stored in the memory and so the next time you
switch your radio on, the station search does not take place. It is possible to scan
manually for stations by pressing and releasing the Scan button.
Adjusting the volume
• Turn clockwise to increase the volume.
• Turn anti-clockwise to decrease the volume.
• Check the display, which will confirm the volume setting.
Change the mode
Press and release the Mode button to change between DAB and FM modes. Please check
the display, which will confirm the mode.
If you require any technical guidance or find that your product is not operating as intended, a simple solution can often be found in the Troubleshooting

If you do wish to set the time and date manually, turn on the radio and follow the steps
below:
1. Press and hold the Menu/Info button to enter the menu options.
2. Press and release the Next button to scroll to <System>. Press and release the Select
button.
3. Press and release the Next button to scroll to <Time>. Press and release the Select
button. <Set Time/Date> is displayed. Press and release the Select button.
4. Set time is displayed and the hour digits will flash. Press and release the Prev or Next
button to scroll to the correct hour. Press and release the Select button.
5. The minutes will now flash. Press and release the Prev or Next button to scroll to the
correct minutes. Press and release the Select button. Set date is displayed and the day
will flash. Use the Prev and Next buttons, together with the Select button, to select
and confirm the day, month and year, using the same method as you used to set the
time.
When you confirm the correct date, Time Saved is displayed and the display returns to
<Set Time/Date>.
You can now use the Prev and Next buttons to scroll and the Select button to confirm,
as you did to set the time and date to change the settings for:
• 12/24 hour clock display
• The date format, DD-MM-YYYY or MM-DD-YYYY
• To auto update the time from the DAB signal, FM signal, DAB or FM signal or no

Using headphones
You can connect headphones with a 3.5mm plug (not included) to your radio. The stereo
headphone socket can be found on the back of the radio at the bottom. When you
have headphones connected the radio speakers are switched off and all sound is via the
headphones.
Note: Always keep the volume within reasonable limits.
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 until you are in 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 automatically be selected when you switch the radio back on.
Changing DAB stations
1. Press and release the Next and Prev buttons to scroll through the available stations.
2. When the station that you would like to listen to is displayed, press and release the
Select button to confirm. There will be a short delay whilst your radio tunes to your
selected station.
Scanning for DAB stations
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, e.g.: if you go on holiday, then it’s also a good idea to carry out
a manual scan.
If you require any technical guidance or find that your product is not operating as intended, a simple solution can often be found in the Troubleshooting

• Dynamic Label Segment (DLS) - this is scrolling text information supplied by the
broadcaster. Information could be the name of an artist or music title, DJ’s name,
contact details for the radio station etc.
• Signal Strength - An empty will appear on the display to indicate the minimum
signal strength for acceptable listening. The row of solid rectangles indicate the actual
signal strength that you are receiving. The stronger the signal, the further to the right
the row of solid rectangles will be.
• 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 - 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

1. Repeatedly press and release the Menu/Info button to cycle through the different
information options.
Dynamic range control (DRC)
In DAB mode:
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.
1. Press and hold the Menu/Info button to enter the menu options.
2. Press and release the Next button to scroll to <DRC>. Press and release the Select
button. The current DRC setting will have an ‘*’ in the display.
3. Press and release the Next button to scroll through the options and press and release
