Listening to the Radio—Continued
RDS only works in areas where RDS broadcasts are
available. When tuned into an RDS station, the RDS
indicator appears.
What is RDS?
RDS stands for Radio Data System and is a method of
transmitting data embedded in FM radio signals. It was
developed by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU)
and is available in most European countries. Many FM
stations use it these days. In addition to displaying text
information, RDS can also help you find radio stations
by type (e.g., news, sport, rock, etc.).
The receiver supports four types of RDS information:
PS (Program Service)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting PS
information, the station’s name will be displayed.
RT (Radio Text)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting text
information, the text will be shown on the display
(page 26).
PTY (Program Type)
This allows you to search for RDS radio stations by type
(page 26).
TP (Traffic Program)
This allows you to search for RDS radio stations that
broadcast traffic information (page 26).
Notes:
In some cases, the text characters displayed on the
receiver may not be identical to those broadcast by the
radio station. Also, unexpected characters may be
displayed when unsupported characters are received.
This is not a malfunction.
If the signal from an RDS station is weak, RDS data
may be displayed intermittently or not at all.
Switching the Display
When receiving RDS, you can press the remote
controller’s [RT/PTY/TP] button to switch the
information shown in the display.
