Setting up
1. Connect the mains power lead into the socket on the back of the Radio and fully
extend the radio aerial in a vertical position to obtain the maximum signal strength.
2. Plug the power adaptor into the mains power wall socket and switch on.
3. Rotate the On/Off wheel on the top of the radio to ‘On’. The display will light up
and ‘Welcome to Digital Radio’ will be displayed.
4. Press and release the ‘Standby’ button on the top of your radio. Your radio will
switch on and begin an automatic 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.
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. Please see page 9.

of 5 hours when using good quality alkaline batteries. When the battery power is
low, please switch off the Radio and replace the batteries.
For battery operation, please switch off the mains adaptor and remove the mains
power plug from the back of the Radio.
Time and date
The first time you listen to DAB radio, the time and date of your product will be
synchronised automatically to that broadcast by the DAB service in 24 hour mode;
which is in line with daylight saving, so there is no need to set the time and date
manually.
If you do wish to set the time and date manually, please see page 16.
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 speaker is switched off and all sound is via
the headphones.
Note: Always keep the volume within reasonable limits.

button on the top of the radio. The display will fully switch on and your Radio will
return to the mode that it was last used in (DAB/FM). If you were listening to a radio
station when you turned the radio off, then this station will be automatically selected.
Note: Always make sure that the aerial is fully extended, to ensure the maximum signal
strength and the best possible sound quality
Switch off
Press and release the ‘Standby’ button on the top of the radio. The Radio will go into
Standby mode and the time and date will be displayed.
To completely switch off the Radio and the display, rotate the On/Off wheel on the top
of the radio to ‘Off’ and switch off the mains power at the wall socket.
Change the mode
Briefly press and release the ‘DAB/FM’ button to change between DAB and FM mode.
Please check the display, which will confirm the mode.
Adjusting the volume
Turn the rotary volume wheel on the top of the radio, anti-clockwise to decrease the
volume and clockwise to increase the volume. When you adjust the volume, please
check the display which will confirm the volume setting.

Using the DAB radio
Telescopic aerial
Please make sure that the aerial on the back of the Radio is fully extended and adjusted
before you attempt to tune to a DAB radio 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.
DAB radio mode
Check that your Radio is in DAB radio mode. If you are not already in DAB mode,
briefly press and release the ‘DAB/FM’ button until you are in DAB mode (check the
display). The DAB/FM button can be found on the top of the radio.
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.
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.
Changing DAB stations
In DAB mode:
1. Press and release the ‘Prev’ and ‘Next’ buttons on the top of the radio to scroll
through the available stations in the station list.
2. When the station that you would like to listen to is displayed press and release the
‘Select’ button on the top of the radio. There will be a short delay whilst your DAB
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.
In DAB mode:
1. Press and release the ‘Scan’ button on the top of the radio to begin a search for
stations. The display will change to ‘Scanning...’. A progress bar will show the
progress of the scan and the number of stations found during the scan will also be
displayed.

written when you store the new station.
Tune to a DAB station preset
In DAB mode:
1. Briefly press the ‘Preset’ button. ‘Preset Recall <1:>’ is displayed together with the
name or frequency of the station stored there, or (Empty) if no previous station has
been stored.
2. Use the ‘Prev’ and ‘Next’ buttons to move to the Preset location and station that
you would like to listen to (1-10).
3. Press and release the ‘Select’ button. The radio will instantly tune to that station
and begin to play.

DAB display information
When listening to a DAB station you can change the information that will appear
on the display. There are several different types of information that are sent by the
broadcaster.
•
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 adjusting the aerial or relocating your radio to improve reception. • Signal information - The data rate at which the signal is being transmitted.
• Time and date - supplied by the broadcaster.
• 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.
1. Repeatedly press and release the ‘Info’ button on the top of the Radio to cycle
through the different information options.
11
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 release the ‘Menu’ button, <Full scan> is displayed.
2. Use the ‘Prev’ and ‘Next’ buttons to scroll to <DRC>. Press and release the ‘Select’
button. The current DRC setting will have an ‘*’ next to it.
3. Use the ‘Prev’ and ‘Next’ buttons to scroll through the options and press the ‘Select’
button to confirm.
4. Press and release the ‘Menu’ button to return to the station display.
12
Using the FM radio
Telescopic aerial
Please make sure that the aerial on the back of the Radio is fully extended before you
attempt to tune to an FM station. This will ensure that the maximum signal strength is
available when the Radio is tuning to a station. Extending the aerial also ensures the
best possible sound quality.
FM Radio mode
Check that your Radio is in FM radio mode. If you are not already in FM mode, briefly
press and release the ‘DAB/FM’ button until you are in FM mode (check the display).
The DAB/FM button can be found on the top of the radio.
If you were listening to an FM station when you switched the Radio off, and you have
not adjusted the tuning dial, then this station will be automatically selected when you
switch the Radio back on.
Tuning to an FM station
In FM mode:
Use the rotary tuning dial on the front of the radio to tune to your favourite FM station.
Please use the frequencies marked on the dial as a guide.
The tuning dial will move both clockwise and anti-clockwise but does have a ‘stop’
point. If you turn the tuning dial and reach the ‘stop’ point, please turn the dial in the
opposite direction to tune.
Note: If reception is still poor, check that the aerial is fully extended and then adjust
the tuning dial slowly, or try moving the Radio to another location.
