You can use any of five methods to find radio stations on the selected band: tune, skip, scan, the preset buttons, and auto select.

On the FM band, you can also use the features provided by the radio data system (RDS). For more information on the RDS.

TUNE - Use the selector knob to tune the radio to a desired frequency.

Turn the knob right to tune to a higher frequency, or left to tune to a lower frequency.

SKIP - The skip function searches

up and down from the current frequency to find a station with a strong signal. To activate it, press and hold the side of the or SKIP bar until you hear a beep, then side of the SKIP bar until you hear a beep, then release it.

 SCAN - The scan function samples all stations with strong signals on the selected band. To activate it, press the SCAN button, then release it.

You will see SCAN in the display.

When the system finds a strong signal, it will stop and play that station for about 10 seconds.

If you do nothing, the system will scan for the next strong station and play it for 10 seconds. When it plays a station that you want to listen to, press the SCAN button again.

Preset - Each preset button can store one frequency on AM and two frequencies on FM.

1. Select the desired band, AM or FM. FM1 and FM2 let you store six stations each.

2. Use the tune, skip, scan, or RDS function to tune the radio to a desired station.

3. Pick a preset button, and hold it until you hear a beep.

4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 to store a total of six stations on AM and twelve stations on FM.

AUTO SELECT - If you are traveling and can no longer receive your preset stations, you can use the auto select feature to find stations in the local area.

You will see a ‘‘0’’ displayed after pressing a preset button if auto select cannot find a strong station for that preset button.

If you do not like the stations auto select has stored, you can store other frequencies on the preset buttons as previously described.

Press the A. SEL button. ‘‘A-SEL’’ flashes in the display, and the system goes into scan mode for several seconds. It stores the frequencies of six AM and twelve FM stations in the preset buttons.

To turn off auto select, press the A. SEL (auto select) button. This restores the presets you originally set.
