STATION PRE-SET MEMORIES
LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY PANEL
To set any of the 6 pre-set memories in each band, use the following procedure:
During radio operation, press this button momentarily to scan the 6 stations pre-set into the memories of that band. The unit will stop at each pre-set station for 5 seconds before continuing to the next pre-set station (the pre-set number on the display panel will flash during Pre-Set Scan operation). Press the button again momentarily to stop Pre-Set Scan operation and remain on the selected frequency.
Pressing the button for longer than 2 seconds will activate the Auto-Store Tuning feature which will automatically scan the band and enter up to 6 strong stations into the 6 pre-set memories (the indication “AST” will appear on the display panel to show that Auto-Store Tuning is in progress). After entering the stations into the memories, the unit will automatically stop at each station for 5 seconds so each can be heard. If you have already set the preset memories to your favorite stations, activating the Auto-Store feature will erase those stations and enter the new strong stations. This feature is most useful when traveling in a new area where
you are not familiar with the local stations.
bq
Moving and holding the button upward or downward for longer than 0.5 seconds will cause the radio to continue tuning rapidly in the selected direction until the button is released at which point it will seek to the next available station.

The station can now be recalled at any time by pressing that button.

4. Repeat the above procedure for the remaining 5 pre-setson thatbrband and for the other 4 bands on the unit.

The Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) panel displays the frequency, time, and activated functions.

NOTE:It is a characteristic of LCD panels that, if subjected to cold temperatures for an extended period of time, they may take longer to illuminate than under normal conditions. In addition, the visibility of the numbers on the LCD may slightly decrease. The LCDread-outwill return to normal when the temperature increases to a normal range.

bs SPECTRUM ANALYZER DISPLAY

The Spectrum Analyzer Display feature incorporated in this unit breaks down the audio frequency spectrum into 7 bands and provides a visual indication of the amount of audio signal within each of these bands. The instantaneous signal level in each band is shown by the number of illuminated bars (1 to 9).
