Connecting up

This section provides information on connecting your aerial, power adapter and other devices. Connector sockets are provided on the rear panel of your EVOKE-1Elgar. Before connecting other devices to yourEVOKE-1Elgar, switch both devices off. For a quick setup you can connect just your power supply and aerial – the other connections listed are optional and will not prevent normal operation of the unit.

Connecting to an aerial

The supplied telescopic aerial enables your EVOKE-1Elgar to receive digital radio transmissions. If you find that the telescopic aerial does not provide good reception you can remove this aerial and connect an alternative DAB aerial. For information on aerial types and positioning seeAerial advice on page 17. To find out about DAB coverage in your area, see the list of useful addresses on page 15.

1.Unscrew the large nut on the end of the telescopic aerial to remove the aerial from the Aerial socket. Note Take care not to unscrew the thin nut behind that holds the aerial connector itself in place.

2.Screw the aerial plug of your replacement aerial onto the Aerial connector on the rear of your digital radio.

You may have to experiment with different aerial positions to find the best reception for particular services. Just like with FM reception, you may find that you want to move the radio around your living space to find the best location for reception – near a window may provide better reception.
