DAB Radio mode
1. Press the Scan button 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.
Check that your radio is in DAB mode. If you are not already in DAB mode, press and
release the Mode button to go to 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
be automatically selected when you switch the radio back on.
Prune DAB stations
You can remove the DAB stations in the station list that cannot be received in your area.
These are listed with a ‘?’ prefix.
1. Press and hold the Menu/Info button until the display changes to
‘DAB <Full Scan>’ and use the Tune/Select rotary control to scroll to ‘Prune’.
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.
Changing DAB stations
In DAB mode:
1. Turn the rotary Tune control on the front of the radio to scroll through the available
stations.
2. When the station that you would like to listen to is displayed press to Select. 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.
Press the Tune/Select rotary control to select.
2. ‘Prune ? <No> Yes’ is displayed. Use Tune/Select rotary control to scroll to ‘Yes’. Press
the rotary control to select and prune the station list. Stations with a ‘?’ prefix will now
no longer be displayed. Press the Menu/Info button to return to the station display.
Storing a DAB station preset
Your radio can store up to 10 DAB stations in its preset memories for instant access to
your favourite stations.
Note: When you store DAB radio station presets, these do not overwrite your FM
station presets.
1. Tune your radio to the station that you wish to preset (see changing DAB stations on
page 22).
2. Press and hold the Preset button on the front of your radio. ‘Preset Store
<1: (Empty) >’ is displayed if no previous station has been stored.
3. Use the Tune/Select rotary control to scroll to the Preset location that you would like
to store the radio station to (1-10).
4. Press the Tune/Select rotary control to select, the display will confirm ‘Preset X stored’,
where ‘X’ is the number of the preset (1-10).
If you are not already in DAB mode, press and release the Mode button to go to DAB
mode.

•
Signal information
The data rate at which the signal is being transmitted.
•
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.
•
Time and date
Supplied by the broadcaster.
DAB display information
1. Repeatedly press and release the Menu/Info button on the front of the radio to cycle
through the different information options.
When listening to a DAB station you can change the information that will appear on the
second line of the display. There are several different types of information that are sent by
the broadcaster.
Dynamic range control (DRC)
•
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.
•
Signal Strength
An empty will appear on the second line of 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.
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
24
Program Type (PTY) - such as ‘Rock’, ‘Pop‘, Talk’ or ‘News’
Using your DAB/FM Radio with Bluetooth
In DAB mode:
he dynamic range for each radio programme is set by the broadcaster for each radio
T
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.
