Instructions Guide

Basic Operation

Please note all (Ref.) refer to the Controls and Functions in the above diagrams.

Plug the USB cable into a power source and connect into the side of the radio, labelled “DC IN” (Ref.11) to power and charge the radio. Alternatively, charge the radio for approximately 4 hours to charge the internal battery. This will allow for approximately 11 hours of charge and portability.

Ensure the antenna (Ref.9) is extended as far as possible. This will allow the radio to receive the best possible signal before DAB or FM mode is selected.

At the side of the radio, switch the ‘ON/OFF’ toggle to “ON” (Ref.10) and “MAJORITY” will display on the screen as the radio loads.

On first set up, the radio will begin to scan for available DAB/DAB+ stations and will display “Scanning….” as the radio scans. Once the scan is complete, the first available station will begin to play.

Press the ‘Standby/Mode’ button (Ref.4) repeatedly to switch between DAB, FM and Bluetooth modes.

DAB/DAB+ Radio

Press the ‘Standby/Mode’ button (Ref.4) to switch to DAB/DAB+ Radio.

If you would like to rescan for available stations, press the ‘Menu’ button (Ref.8) to open settings and scroll through options with the ‘Up/Down’ buttons (Ref.1/3). Select “FULL SCAN” with the ‘OK’ button (Ref.4) to initiate a full scan for available stations. After searching has finished it will automatically play the first station stored.

To browse through all stations that have been stored, use the ‘Up’ or ‘Down’ buttons (Ref.1/3) to scroll through the available stations. When on the chosen station you wish to play, press the ‘OK’ button (Ref.2) to begin listening to that station.

When you turn the radio on again after it switching off, it will automatically tune to the same mode (DAB, FM or Bluetooth) that was last selected.
