Tip: If TRAFFIC (PTY) is selected , the unit searches for a station which regularly broadcasts traffic announcements. Therefore, a detected station may not be currently broadcasting traffic announcements. You will, however, be able to hear the announcements in a while. EON Search Note on PTY & EON Search The unit can leap to a station which has just started broadcasting your desired PTY. In EON (Enhanced Other Networks information) Search, the unit is in standby mode until the desired PTY begins. As soon as it begins, the unit "leaps to" another station with the PTY and returns to the previously tuned station when it ends. EON Search makes the function above possible with the help of EON which gives the receivers a cross reference to other stations. You need to preset every available station in advance since the unit searches only the preset stations. PTY & EON Search do not function under the following conditions: - FM stations are not preset. - The signals of the station broadcasting the desired PTY are weak. - FM RDS stations cannot be received. 1 Tune in an RDS station. If "EON " lights up, proceed to the next step. If not, try to tune in another RDS station until it does. 2 Press PTY to display the program type. 3 Press f or g to select a desired program type and then press a. "EON ON " is displayed for 3 seconds and then the unit enters the standby mode while "EON " flashes. When the unit leaps to another station, "EON " flashes rapidly. If there is no button input for 4 seconds in step 3, the search is not activated. •MULTI JOG is also available in place of f or g. To return to the previously tuned station from the "leaped to" station Press d. The standby mode for EON Search is also cancelled. To cancel the standby mode for EON Search Hold down PTY for a while so that "EON PTY " and the selected PTY are displayed alternately, and then with PTY held down, press a. "EON OFF " is displayed. •The standby mode for EON Search will not be cancelled even if the unit is turned off. 14 Auto Graphic equalizer (AG) Note on RDS features The unit automatically selects a sound equalization curve to match the music program type (PTY) data being transmitted from the station. (e.g. 'POP' curve is selected for POP M [PTY].) Press AG when tuning in to an RDS station. The RDS features described above may not function correctly if the RDS transmission data from the station contains too much interference or the reception signal is too weak. "AG " lights up. To cancel AG function Press AG so that "AG " disappears. Clock-time (CT) You can automatically set and update the clock on the hour every hour just by tuning in an RDS station since RDS stations transmit clock signals. 1 Press RT repeatedly to select "CT ON " while the unit is on and the time is displayed (see "Setting the clock"). 2 Tune in an RDS station. To deactivate CT function (If the clock is set wrongly due to an incorrect clock signal) Repeat step 1 to select "CT OFF ". Adjustments Antennas Keep antennas away from metallic objects, electrical equipment and cords. FM antenna: Extend fully and position for the best reception. If receiving condition is poor, connect optional outdoor antenna to FM 75 Ω terminal. MW/LW antenna: Rotate to find best reception. To switch to monaural FM reception Press SHIFT+TUNER MODE on the remote control. With each press, "MONO " and "STEREO " are displayed alternately on the display. Tip: When FM stereo reception is poor, switching to monaural reduces noise. To switch the MW tuning interval Hold down BAND and press POWER on the unit.
