RDS (Radio Data System) is a data transmission system by FM stations in many countries. Stations using this system transmit an inaudible stream of data in addition to the normal radio signal. RDS data contains various information such as PI (Program Identification), PS (Program Service name), PTY (Program Type), RT (Radio Text), CT (Clock Time), EON (Enhanced Other Networks), etc.
RECEIVING RDS STATIONS PTY SEEK Function If you select the desired program type, the unit automatically searches all preset RDS stations that are broadcasting a program of the required type. – – Press PTY SEEK MODE to set the unit in the PTY SEEK mode.
EON Function This function uses the EON data service on the RDS station network. If you simply select the desired program type (NEWS, INFO, AFFAIRS or SPORT), the unit automatically searches for all preset RDS stations that are scheduled to broadcast a program of the required type and switches from the station being currently received to the new station when the broadcasts starts.
