What is RDS (Radio Data System)
RDS is à multiplex broadcasting system which adds a variety of
message signals to the audio signals of FM broadcasts,
This unit can utilize the following signals among the various RDS
signals.
RDS messages used by this unit
« Pi (Program identification)
Program identification signal consisting of a program code
=» PS (Program service name)
Name of the broadcast station
e PTY (Program type)
identification signal for program types such as news and sport
» EON {Enhanced other networks)
RDS information provided on cross-referenced program services
*PTY™ and "EON" may not be available in some areas.
(Future function)
Functions of this unit which use RDS
PS/PTY display
When this unit receives a PS signal in an RDS broadcast, the name
of the broadcast station can be shown on the display.
Furthermore, while the PTY signal is being recsived, the name of
the type of program currently being broadcast can be shown on the
display.
PTY search
When you wish to listen to a particular type of program, a program
of that type can be searched.
EON tuning
If the broadcast you are receiving Is sending ECN signals, you can
pick up other information from cross-referenced program services
such as PS and PTY. This receiver makes use of PTY signals to let
you get more out of it.
For example, if you want to listen to a "NEWS" program, you can
search for one from inside the cross-referenced program service
you are receiving at the moment. What's more, if you can't find one
right away, the receiver will wait until a PTY “NEWS” program starts
and will switch over to it automatically while the whole time you con-
tinue listening to the broadcast you had on before.
When the receiver does switch over to the "NEWS" channel, it will
stay with the same broadcast station even after the "NEWS" pro-
gram ends.
Even if an FM broadcast station is transmitting RDS signals, the
functions of this unit may nof be able to ulilize these signals if the
signal quality is too poor.
The PTY search and EON tuning are carried out with
respect to FM broadcast stations that have been preset Into
the memory. Make sure that “Memory Presettings” on page
15 have been completed before carrying out these opera-
tions.
