You can use any of five methods to find radio stations on the selected band: tune, seek, scan, the preset buttons, and auto select.
TUNE - Use the SEEK button to tune to a desired frequency. Press the button to tune to a higher frequency, and the button to tune to a lower frequency.
You can also operate the tune function by using the VOL/SELECT knob. Press the VOL/SELECT knob and you will see вЂвЂSELвЂ™вЂ™ in the display.
Turn the knob right to tune to a higher frequency, or left to tune to a lower frequency. To turn it off, press the VOL/SELECT knob or button, or button.
The system will return to the normal display about 10 seconds after you stop adjusting the tune mode.
SEEK - The SEEK function searches up and down from the current frequency to find a station with a strong signal. To activate it, press and hold the or side of the SEEK button 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 then scan for the next strong station and play it for 10 seconds. When it plays a station 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.
2. Use the tune, seek, or scan function to tune the radio to a desired station.
3. Pick a preset number (1 - 6), 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.
Press the A. SEL button. вЂвЂA. SELвЂ™вЂ™ 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.
You will see a вЂвЂ0вЂ™вЂ™ 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.
To turn off auto select, press the A. SEL button. This restores the presets you originally set.
