Antennas
• AM Antenna – A built-in ferrite rod
antenna eliminates the need for an
outside antenna for AM reception.
Rotating the unit slightly may
improve reception of distant AM
stations.
• FM Antenna – The power cord
acts as your FM antenna. The
power cord picks up moderate
to strong stations and eliminates
the need for an external antenna
in most strong signal areas. Be
sure the power cord is stretched
out to its full length. Do not
coil or bunch the cord together.
Changing position of the power
cord may improve reception.
• Built-In AFC – The Built In
Automatic Frequency Control
(AFC) works only on FM. It helps
reducing drift on FM reception and
keeping the radio locked in on the
FM station to which it is tuned.
When tuning in FM stations, you
may notice that the station you
are tuning can be well-tuned on
two or three nearby points on the
dial. Always tune carefully at the
loudest and clearest point.
