RECEIVING RDS STATIONS (HTR-5130RDS only)
RDS (Radio Data System) is a data transmission system gradually being introduced by FM stations in many countries. Stations
using this system transmit an inaudible stream of data in addition to the normal radio signal.
RDS data contains various information, such as PI (Program Identification), PS (Program Service name), PTY (Program Type), RT
(Radio Text), CT (Clock Time), EON (Enhanced Other Networks), etc.
RDS function is carried out among the network stations.
* This unit utilizes PI, PS, PTY, RT, CT and EON to receive RDS broadcast stations.
Displaying RDS data
AUTO PTY HOLD
This unit can be turned into the following five modes to display
PS (Program Service name) mode:
Displays the name of the RDS station currently being received
instead of the frequency.
PTY (Program Type) mode:
Displays the type of the program on the RDS station currently
being received. There are 15 program types to classify RDS
stations. Refer to the next page for details.
RT (Radio Text) mode:
Displays information about the program (such as title of the
song, name of the singer, etc.) on the RDS station currently
CT (Clock Time) mode:
Displays current time. This signal comes from the RDS station
currently being received.
EON (Enhanced Other Networks)
Automatically receives a program of the designated program
type when its broadcast starts in place of the program currently
being received. When the broadcast of the called program
ends, the previously received program (or another program on
the same station) is recalled.
