What is RDS?
Introduced by the European Broadcasting Union
(EBU) in 1987, the Radio Data System (RDS) allows
information such as station names to be received
via the 57 kHz sub-carrier signal of FM
broadcasts. However, the availability of RDS data
varies depending on the area. It therefore may
not be always be possible to receive RDS
Using the RDS functions
This radio supports the following RDS functions.

Finden Sie die Antwort auf Ihre Frage nicht im Handbuch? Vielleicht finden Sie die Antwort auf Ihre Frage in den FAQs zu Sony XDR-S61DB unten.
FM und AM, was ist der Unterschied?
FM Street für Frequenzmodulation und AM steht für Amplitudenmodulation. Der größte Unterschied zwischen FM-Radiosendern und AM-Radiosendern ist die Klangqualität.
Wann ist meine Lautstärke zu laut?
Ein Geräuschpegel von 80 Dezibel kann das Gehör schädigen. Wenn der Geräuschpegel über 120 Dezibel liegt, kann es sogar zu direkten Schäden kommen. Die Wahrscheinlichkeit von Hörschäden hängt von der Häufigkeit und Dauer des Hörens ab.
Wie kann ich mein radio am besten reinigen?
Ein leicht feuchtes Reinigungstuch oder ein weiches, staubfreies Tuch entfernt Fingerabdrücke am besten. Staub an schwer zugänglichen Stellen wird am besten mit Druckluft entfernt.
Was ist Bluetooth?
Bluetooth ist eine Möglichkeit, Daten drahtlos über Funkwellen zwischen elektronischen Geräten auszutauschen. Der Abstand zwischen den beiden Geräten, die Daten austauschen, kann in den meisten Fällen bis zu zehn Meter betragen.
