2. Fully extend the wire aerial located on the rear of your clock radio.
Place the wire antenna so that it is as straight as possible extending
either above or below the radio.
3. Plug the mains lead into the mains socket located on the back of your
clock radio ensuring that the plug is pushed fully into the socket. Plug
the other end of the mains lead into the wall socket and switch on
the wall socket. The display will show "ROBERTS" for a few seconds
and then the display will then show "SCANNING". During this time the
radio is scanning to find out which DAB radio stations are available.
After a short time the current time will appear on the display.
4. If no stations are found, "NO CLOCK" will be displayed. It may be
necessary to relocate your clock radio to a position giving better
reception. You should then carry out a scan to find stations as described
on page 9.
IMPORTANT: The mains plug is used as the means of connecting 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 plug should be removed from
the mains socket outlet completely.
Characters appearing on the LCD display indicate that the clock radio is
connected to and powered from the mains supply.
