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 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.
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.
If you are not already in DAB mode, press and release the ‘Mode’ button to go to DAB
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.

DAB display information
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 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.
• 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 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.
1.
Repeatedly press and release the ‘Menu/Info’ button on the front of the radio to
cycle through the different information options.
11
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.
There are 3 levels of compression:
• DRC Off: no compression. This is the default setting.
• DRC Low: medium compression.
• DRC High: maximum compression.

If you are experiencing problems with your radio, there are some quick and easy
checks that you can do, which may help to solve the problem.
No sound / power:
• Adjust the volume using the rotary control on your radio.
• Check that the mains power wall socket is switched on and that your radio is not
in Standby mode.

your radio or unplug the headphones.
• If you are using a Bluetooth connected device, increase the volume on the
secondary device and on your radio
• If you have batteries fitted, they may be exhausted and need to be replaced.
Please use only good quality C size batteries.
Radio reception is poor:
• Fully extend the aerial to get the best reception and sound quality.
