Let’s get started
Telescopic aerial
Please make sure that the aerial is fully extended before you 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.
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.
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

• Signal Strength - An empty will appear on the display to indicate the minimum
signal strength for acceptable listening. The row of solid rectangles indicates 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.
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.
