Radio

Built-In AFC

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
EN
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.

Antennas

AM Antenna - A built-in ferrite rod antenna
eliminates the need for an outside antenna for
AM reception.
FM Antenna - The power cord acts as your FM
antenna. The power cord picks up moderate to
strong stations and eliminates the need for an
external antenna in most strong signal areas. Be
sure the power cord is stretched out to its full
length. Do not coil or bunch the cord together.
Changing position of the power cord may
improve reception.
