RDS Operation -Optional
This unit is equipped with RDS (Radio Data System),
which brings a wide range of information to FM radio.
RDS, now being used in many countries, is a system for
transmitting station call signs or network information, a
description of station programme type text message
about the station or specifics of musical selection and
the correct time.
RDS TUNING
When a FM station is tuned in and it contains RDS
data, the unit will automatically display the station’s call
sign and the RDS indicator will light in the Display
Window as well as indicators for the RDS services pro-
gramme (PS), programme type recognition (PTY),
Radio text (RT) and Clock Time (CT) if transmitted by
the station.
RDS DISPLAY OPTIONS
The RDS system is capable of transmitting a wide vari-
ety of information in addition to the initial call sign that
appears when a station is first tuned. In normal RDS
operation the display will indicate the station name,
broadcast network or call letters. Pressing RDS on the
remote control enables you to cycle through the various
data types in the sequence:
(PS →
→ FREQUENCY →
→ PTY →
→ RT →
→ CT)

 PS (Programme Service name)- The name of the
channel is shown in the Display Window.

 PTY (Programme type recognition)- The name of
the programme type is shown in the Display Window.

 RT (Radio text)- A “text” message contains special
information from the broadcast station. Note that this
message may scroll across the display to permit
message.

 CT (Time controlled by the channel)- Enables the
unit to receive the actual time and show it in the
Display Window.
Note :
Note :
Some RDS stations may not choose to include some of
these additional features. If the data required for the
selected mode is not being transmitted, the Display
Window will show a PTY NONE, RT NONE, CT NONE,
or PS NONE message.
Programme Search (PTY)
A major benefit of RDS is its ability to encode broad-
casts with Programme Type (PTY) codes that indicate
the type of material being broadcast. The following list
shows the abbreviations used to indicate each PTY
along with an explanation of the PTY.
You may search for a specific Programme Type (PTY)
by following these steps:
1. Press TUNER/ BAND to select the FM mode.
2. Press PTY on the remote control, the display will
show the last PTY in use.
3. Press PTY repeatedly to select a desired PTY.
4. When the PTY is selected, press TUN.(-/+).The unit
will go into an automatic search mode.When a station is
tuned, the search will stop.
