The Technology
The Sirius Satellite Radio service begins at the national broadcast studios in New York City, where the
programs are created. They are then beamed to the three orbiting satellites and ground repeaters, which
then send them to the receiver in your vehicle. This signal is maximized by placing the satellites in orbits
directly above the United States rather than geostationary orbits over the equator. The result is the most
optimal signal strength.
This system is broadcast in the S-Band and has a frequency range of 2319.75MHz to 2332.75MHz.
A Note About Reception
Satellite signals may be completely blocked by buildings, overpasses, or other structures and they
operate best with a “clear line of sight.” For this reason, terrestial repeaters are placed in dense urban
areas to supplement the satellite coverage area.
In the illustration above (not drawn to scale), the satellite signal is prevented from directly reaching either
vehicle. However, the vehicle on the left is within range of a terrestial repeater and therefore can recieve
broadcast until it emerges from the “electronic shadow” of the building.
Not: the Sirius broadcast satellites orbit almostdirectly overhead so their “shadow” is very small.
However, the satellite’s precise location in the sky changes hour by hour and the corresponding “shadow”
will change as well.
Momentary interruption of the satellite signal is protected by a four-second audio memory in the receiver.
Therefore, if the signal blockage exists for less than four seconds, there will be no interruption of the audio.
The combination of overhead placement, terrestial repeaters, and the four-second audio memory should
provide coast-to coast coverage with few interruptions.

If you try to use the Sirius Satellite Radio system with an FM modulator and you don’t have the radio tuned
to the correct frequency, you might only hear static. The radio must be on the same FM station as the SSR
system is set.
For convenience, we recommend you assign the appropriate FM modulator frequency to one of the
preset buttons on your FM radio.

7. Basic Operation
“Power up” means turning the unit on from a Control Display Unit (CDU) on a system that has
• been properly installed and battery power supplied.
• already engaged a channel subscription from Sirius.
7.1. General Descriptions
CATEGORY
A category is a group of channels having a similar theme or “genre” (for example “ROCK” or “JAZZ”).
There are “at least” 12 categories … each having a maximum of 24 channels.
CHANNEL
A channel can be thought of as a single radio station. You can receive up to 100 channels on your
receiver. The channel NUMBERS assigned to channels can be over 100. Some channel numbers might not
be available for one reason or another. A channel NAME that gets displayed might be something like: “THE
VAULT” or “CLASSIC COUNTRY”.
Sirius assigns channels to categories. Channel numbers may change in the future but the receiver will keep
up with these changes. You might want to periodically re-check the presets. Also, a single channel may be
in multiple categories.
PROGRAM DESCRIPTIVE TEXT
Program Descriptive Text (PDT) data is song (or program) specific textual information that is transmitted to
the receiver and displayed on the CDU. An example of some PDT data for a song might be:
• Artist Name
“The Police”
• Song Title
“Roxanne”
• Album Name
“Every Breath You Take
• Record label
“A & M Records”
Generally, most stations will at least contain the artist name and song title information. Additional
information such as album and record label may also be provided.
16
CR-SRF100/CR-SRT100
17233_SGould 08/15/02 14:46 Page 17
PRESET
A preset is a channel number stored in memory that is easily called back by pressing a button. The CDU
can store up to 18 preset channels for quick retrieval. There are 6 buttons to store/recall preset channels
(numbered 1 ‡ 6). To afford 18 preset channel numbers, the CDU uses 3 groups of 6 presets. To access a
particular preset, you only have to select the group of preset values you want and then press the particular
preset button.
The preset memory (18 channels) is saved even if the battery power is lost.
OPERATING MODES
You are always in one of the 4 particular operating modes (SETUP, CHANNEL, CATEGORY, PRESET). The
only way to exit one mode is to press the appropriate button(s) to enter a different mode. For example:
• Press and release the [CATEGORY] button:
Enters category mode.
• Press and release the [CHANNEL] button:
Enters channel mode.
• Press and release the [PRESET] button:
Enters preset mode.
• Simultaneously pressing the preset buttons [1] & [6]:
Enters setup mode.

7.2. Start-Up/Shut-Down Modes
In this section, “On” refers to a condition where the CDU is displaying information and the radio is playing
audio. “Off” refers to the condition when the CDU is powered down and there is no satellite receiver audio.
The receiver remains powered as long as there is battery power. Power is supplied to the CDU by pressing
the [SEL] button.
7.2.1. Start-Up (Turn On)
If the SSR system was “On” when the vehicle was last powered off, then it will automatically turn on when
the vehicle is started the next time. Otherwise, press and release the [SEL] button to turn the SSR system
on. When the SSR system turns on, the following sequence of events will occur:
CR-SRF100/CR-SRT100
19
17233_SGould 08/15/02 14:46 Page 20
1. “SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO” will scroll across the display, twice.
2. If there is no antenna detected, “ANTENNA ERROR” will show on the second line of the display:
3. If the antenna is good, but no signal is found, “ACQUIRING SIGNAL” will show on the second line of
the display:
4. Once satellite signal is present, the CDU will display the current channel number, category, and name
depending upon the current system configuration/setup.
NOTE: If your system is using an FM modulator and you were listening to the radio prior to starting the
SSR system, you might need to tune your radio to the appropriate FM frequency. The radio must be on the
same FM station that the Sirius Satellite Radio system is set for.
(Please see the section on the setup operation to view or change the required FM modulator frequency)
[SECTION 6.5].
20
CR-SRF100/CR-SRT100
7.2.2. Shut-Down (Turn Off)
Press and hold the [SEL] button for greater than two seconds to turn the system off. The receiver mutes
the SSR audio, blanks the CDU display and turns off all indicators. If an FM Modulator is connected to the
system, it will switch back to the antenna to allow normal AM/FM radio operation .
CR-SRF100/CR-SRT100
21
7.3. Standard Operations & Screen Display Format
GENERAL KEYPAD HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS
In general, a function in the CDU is engaged by pressing and releasing the button. If any other button press
is detected while the first button is still depressed, the other button(s) function is ignored. The only exception from this is when a function requires simultaneous key presses (e.g., entering SETUP mode).
Therefore, in this manual, “press a key” actually means “press and release a key” unless the operation happens after an extended key press (e.g., storing a value in a preset) and then the manual will indicate “press
and hold”.
SCROLLING INFORMATION
When the length of the information to display is greater than the allocated space, the information will scroll
across the screen one time and then a shortened version that does not scroll will appear.
“CHANNEL NAME” SCREEN DISPLAY FORMAT
(this is also called the “DEFAULT” screen display format)
The channel name (default) screen display format is as follows
• 1st line: Channel number & Channel Name
• 2nd line: Category for the current channel being played
EXAMPLE:
The channel number is displayed in the first four characters of the top line, three digits and a trailing space.
22
CR-SRF100/CR-SRT100
17233_SGould 08/15/02 14:46 Page 23
The channel name is displayed in the last 12 characters of the top line. If the full channel name is greater
than twelve characters in length, then the full channel name is scrolled across the display once, and the
eight-character abbreviated version is displayed thereafter.
The category name is displayed on the bottom line. If no category information accompanies this channel,
then this area of the display area will be blank.
If you change channels, there can be a slight delay in getting the new information to display. During a
channel change, the new channel number is immediately displayed, and the rest of the display is updated
when the new information is available.
“PDT” SCREEN DISPLAY FORMAT … CHANGING TEXT INFORMATION BEING DISPLAYED
Program Descriptive Text (PDT) is available in any of the principle modes of operation (other than SETUP).
This information is only displayed on the second line of the display. The first line continues to display the
channel number and category name.
The screen display format is as follows
• 1st line:
Channel number & Channel Name
• 2nd line:
Category name OR PDT information for the specific program
When the operator presses the [SEL] button, the type of information displayed on 2nd line rotates between
the channel name and different types of PDT information.
For example, if the
• channel number is: 7
• category name is:
“POP”
• channel name is:
“I-70”
Then the available PDT data could be:
• Artist Name
“The Police”
• Song Title
“Roxanne”
The PDT type (“ARTIST” or “TITLE”) is temporarily displayed on the second line immediately before the
PDT is displayed.
CR-SRF100/CR-SRT100
23
17233_SGould 08/15/02 14:46 Page 24

17233_SGould 08/15/02 14:46 Page 26
The display reverts to:
If the ARTIST or TITLE information is not available, the words “ARTIST” and “TITLE” are remain in their
place. If a PDT field other than ARTIST and TITLE does not contain information the field is skipped and the
next field that contains data is displayed.
DISPLAY WHEN TUNING TO A CHANNEL STORED IN A PRESET
No matter what mode you are in (PRESET, CHANNEL or CATEGORY), if you tune to a channel that is also
stored in a preset (rotating the [SEL] knob OR pressing preset buttons [1] – [6]), the system momentarily
displays the preset number and group on the lower line of the display before continuing with the pre-selected display format.
If the channel selected is stored in multiple presets:
• If the channel was selected by pressing a preset button [1] – [6] then that preset number & group
are momentarily displayed.
• If the channel was selected by any other means (e.g., rotating the [SEL] knob) then the system will
momentarily display the first preset number & group that the channel is stored in.
26
CR-SRF100/CR-SRT100
17233_SGould 08/15/02 14:46 Page 27
(STORING CHANNELS IN PRESETS
To store a channel in a preset, press and hold the preset button for 2 seconds. The receiver will emit a
short beep, indicating the channel is stored at that preset button in the current preset group.
RECALLING PRESET CHANNELS
If the user presses and releases a preset button [1] – [6] the system will select the channel stored at the
preset number for the current preset group.
CR-SRF100/CR-SRT100

7.4. Category Mode
The Sirius satellite system collects category information about each available channel. Any given channel
may be associated with zero, one, or more than one category. Therefore a category map is constructed with
each category identified with the specific channels associated with it.
This channel and category mapping can be illustrated as:
Through the use of preset buttons or by being in channel mode, it is possible to tune to a channel not in
the currently selected category.

SELECTING A CATEGORY
You select a category by pressing the [CATEGORY] button until the desired category is displayed. If the
category mode screen is not currently being displayed, the first press of the [CATEGORY] button results in
the current category being displayed. Further presses of the [CATEGORY] button selects the next category.
The category mode screen will be displayed for a fixed time after the last button press of [CATEGORY].
After that, the system returns to the standard display format … leaving the last category selected as the
current category.
The channel is not changed when pressing the [CATEGORY] button. The channel changes once you rotate
the [SEL] knob/button (which changes the channel). At this time, if the category display screen is being
displayed, the CDU immediately returns to the previous display format.
CHANNEL SELECTION WITHIN CATEGORY MODE
As the [SEL] knob is rotated, the system increments or decrements to the next available audio channel
within the current category.
If you have just entered a new category and you rotate the [SEL] knob …
• clockwise: the system will start with the first channel (lowest channel number) in that category.
• counter clockwise: the system will start with the last channel (highest channel number) in that category.
The CDU will wrap around after the low or high channel number is reached.

• The antenna should be installed on the vehicle’s roof with the 2 wires separating and going around
the rear window before entering the vehicle and going to the receiver. The antenna is fastened to
the roof top with self-adhesive tape located on the bottom of the antenna housing.
To obtain optimum adhesion, the bonding surface must be clean, dry and well unified. Typical surface
cleaning solvents are isopropyl alcohol/water mixture (rubbing alcohol) or heptane. However, if placing it on
a painted surface, test first to ensure no damage to the surface will occur.
- Use a clean cloth to clean surface.
- Use proper safety precautions for handling solvents.
It may be necessary to seal or prime some substrates prior to bonding:
a. Most porous or fibered materials (e.g. wood) will require sealing to provide a
unified surface.
b. Some materials (e.g. copper, brass, plasticised vinyl) will require priming or coating
to prevent interaction between adhesive and substrates.
Ideal tape application temperature is 20°C to 38°C (68°F ‡ 100°F). Do not apply to surfaces below 10
degrees Celsius.
In some cases, bond strength can be increased and ultimate bond strength can be achieved more quickly
by exposure of the bond to elevated temperatures (e.g. 85°C [185°F] for one hour).

(Screws not included)
• The Control Display Unit (CDU) should be installed at a convenient location on the dash board.
It should be installed where it will not cause driver distraction. It is mounted with “dual-lock
fastening tape” (included in the kit). However, it should not be mounted where it will be exposed to
direct and extended sun light (i.e., do not mount it on top of the dash board under the windshield
in direct sun light).

10. Maintenance & Troubleshooting
10.1 Maintenance
Your product is designed and manufactured to ensure the minimum of maintenance. Use a soft cloth for
routine exterior cleaning. Never use benzine or other solvents.
10.2 Troubleshooting
Direct access channel 184 is provided by Sirius Satellite Radio to confirm proper installation of all the
system components.
If the receiver acquires channel 184, the system is installed / working properly. If all components are
working as described in this manual, however you are experiencing difficulty with programming reception,
contact the Sirius Technical assistance phone number 1-888-539-SIRIUS (7474).
If the receiver does not acquire channel 184 properly, please reconfirm proper installation and setup per
the instructions included in this manual.
After verifying proper installation and setup you are still experiencing trouble, check the following items:
1. KEYPAD ERROR
When the SSR system starts, if the CDU never detects that all of the keys are released at the same time, a
“KEYPAD ERROR” message is displayed (the CDU has determined that a key is stuck in the pressed state).
Action: Check CDU for a key which is stuck down.
2. INITIALIZING
If the CDU cannot communicate with the receiver at startup, INITIALIZING is displayed. This may be temporarily displayed if the user presses a key during the “SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO” scrolling, and is not
necessarily a problem.
Action: If the message does not go away after approx. 6 seconds, check the electrical harness to the
receiver.
CR-SRF100/CR-SRT100
47
17233_SGould 08/15/02 14:46 Page 48
3. RECEIVER ERROR
If communication between the receiver and CDU stops for approximately 6-9 seconds, then a “RECEIVER
ERROR” message is displayed).
Action: Check the electrical harness between the CDU and the receiver.
4. NO SUBSCRIPTION
If the CDU determines that there is no subscription to the Sirius service, then the message “CALL 888539-SIRIUS TO SUBSCRIBE” will scroll twice on the display. Pressing any key will then cause the Sirius
ID to be displayed. Further key presses alternate between the Call Sirius message and the Sirius ID.
Action: Subscribe according to the instructions earlier in this manual.
5. ANTENNA ERROR
If the receiver detects an electrical problem with the antenna circuit, the “ANTENNA ERROR” message will
be displayed on the second line.
Action: Verify the electrical connection between the receiver and both antenna wires.
6. ACQUIRING SIGNAL
If there is a lack of both a satellite and terrestrial signal, the “ACQUIRING SIGNAL” message will be displayed on the second line.
Action: Make sure the antenna is not obstructed by any large objects (bridges, garages, tall buildings, etc.)

CR-SRF100/CR-SRT100
17233_SGould 08/15/02 14:46 Page 49
7. POWER UP AND HEARING STATIC ON SYSTEM WITH FM MODULATOR
If you power the SSR system up and are using an FM modulator and you only hear static, your radio might
be on the wrong FM station. The radio must be on the same FM station that the SSR system is set to.
Action: Check that your radio is tuned to the correct FM frequency.
(Please see the section on the setup operation to view or change the required FM modulator frequency).
6. POWER UP AND HEARING AN “OVER THE AIR” STATION … NOT AN SSR STATION
In a system that requires an FM modulator, if your FM modulator is set to “OFF” (see SETUP mode … FM
Modulator configuration), you will not hear any SSR stations and your “over the air” antenna system will
be functioning normally. Therefore, in this situation, you will be receiving “over the air” stations.
Action: Check that your receiver is set to use the FM modulator on the correct FM frequency.
If you are unsuccessful in resolving troubles, please refer to Product Servicing below.
10.3 Product Servicing
If you experience any operational difficulties, or require a repair, please refer to the original installer
or your supplying dealer for assistance. Otherwise, call Panasonic Customer Call Center phone number
1-800-211-PANA.
10.4 Replacing The Fuse
Use fuses of the same specified rating 3A for yellow wire and 0.5A for red wire. Using different
substitutes or fuses with higher ratings, or connecting the unit directly without a fuse, could cause fire or
damage to the receiver system. If the replacement fuse fails, contact the Panasonic Customer Service
1-800-211PANA (7262) for assistance.
10.5 Antenna Removal
Antennas are sold separately. Each antenna manufacturer may have instructions that are specific to their
own products. You should follow the instructions from your antenna manufacturer.
Warning: Panasonic is not responsible for scratches or other damage that might result from removing a
Satellite Radio Antenna after it has been installed.
