RDS (Radio Data System)
RDS is a system which transmits useful information (digital data) for FM broadcasts together with the broadcast signal. Tuners and receivers
designed for RDS reception can extract the information from the broadcast signal for use with various functions such as automatic display of
the station name.
This unit is equipped with the following functions utilizing RDS data:
(Be sure to set the automatic memory function - otherwise, the RDS function will not work.)
RDS Auto Memory function
RDS stations and FM station are automatically selected and stored in
the memory (up to 40 stations).
PTY (Program Type Identification) Search (FM band)
The tuner automatically searches for a station which is currently broad-
casting a specified program type (genre).
EON (Enhanced Other Network) reservation
When you select one or two of the types of information beforehand,
the tuner automatically switches to the station which is broadcasting
the program of the reserved information even though you are listen-
ing to another station. When the program of the reserved information
ends, the tuner returns to the previous station.
RT (Radio Text) indicator: (See below.)
Some RDS stations transmit the text data.
PS (Program Service Name) Display: (See below.)
When an RDS broadcast is received, the station name is automati-
cally displayed.
CT (Clock Time) Display: (See below.)
