Operating the Radio
The Built-In Automatic Frequency Control (AFC)
works only on FM. It helps to reduce drift on FM
reception and to keep the radio locked in on the
FM station to which it is tuned.
When tuning in FM stations, you may notice that
often the station you desire can be heard on two
or three nearby points on the dial. Always tune
carefully to the loudest and clearest point.
AM Antenna - A built-in ferrite rod antenna
eliminates the need for an outside antenna for AM
reception. Rotating the unit slightly may improve
reception of distant AM stations.
FM Antenna - The power cord acts as your FM
antenna. The power cord picks up moderate to
