Using RDS (Radio Data System)

RDS is a system that transmits useful information (in the form of digital
data) for FM broadcasts along 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.
RDS functions:
PTY (Program Type Identification) Search
Automatically tunes to a station that is currently broadcasting the
specified program type (genre).
PS (Program Service Name) Display
Automatically displays the station name transmitted by the RDS
station.
RDS AUTO MEMORY function
Automatically selects and stores up to 40 RDS stations in the preset
memory.
If fewer than 40 RDS stations have been stored in the preset memory,
regular FM stations will be stored in the remaining places.
Radio Text function
Displays the radio text data transmitted by some RDS stations when
you press the RDS DISP. key. There is "NO RT" display if no text data
is transmitted.
The "RDS" indicator lights up when an RDS broadcast (signal) is
received.
