b) Radio Operation
AF (Alternative Frequencies) REG Function
AF is a function that works with the help of RDS
(Radio Data System) and can only be used with
FM stations. The radio searches in the background
for the best frequency reception of the station
that has been tuned into.
If the AF function has been switched on, the radio
continuously tests the signal strength of the AF
frequency. The test interval for each AF frequency
depends on the signal strength of the current
station and varies from a few minutes in the case
of a strong signal to a few seconds in the case of
weak signals. Whenever the new AF frequency is
stronger than the station that is currently tuned
in, the radio switches to this frequency for a
short time and the message "NEW FREQUENCY"
is displayed for one to two seconds. As the mute
time during the frequency change and the test
time is very short, this is almost inaudible during
the normal programme.
The AF function is activated by holding down the
AF/TA button and the status of the AF function is
indicated by an AF symbol in the display.
• If the AF symbol appears in the display, the
AF function is switched on and RDS trans-
mission data is being received.
• If the AF symbol flashes in the display, the AF
function is selected but no RDS signal can be
received at the moment.
• Press the AF/TA button long again to switch
off this function. The AF symbol in the
display goes off.
