1. Station availability can change from time to time as new stations
appear, or existing stations cease broadcasting.
2. Reception was poor during the initial automatic scan, if for
example the radio’s antenna was not completely extended,
it may be that the station list is incomplete or even empty.
3. You have poor reception on some of the stations (resulting in
broken or poor quality audio), you may wish to list only stations that
have a strong signal strength.
To start a manual scan, press the
from the menu list.

reach the point of having a 9th device you wish to pair, SUPERSIGNAL will pair with
the 9th device and automatically erase the oldest-paired device from its memory.
You can continue to pair new devices and your radio will always remember the
previous 8 devices it has paired with.

technology, meaning that when it is used in conjunction with a device that also
supports aptX®, the streamed audio will be of CD quality rather than the MP3
quality of a standard Bluetooth stream.
