For a complete list of shortwave frequencies, use the major shortwave publications mentioned on page 22.
Even if you do not know any specific frequencies of short- wave stations, you can find them by going into a shortwave band and tuning around, as described below. • MANUAL TUNING: Use the regular TUNING buttons to go up or down frequency. Be aware that when using manual tuning, it is possible to tune right out of the shortwave band you have entered. You are in the band as long as the band’s number, e.g.
25m, is in the display. • STORING STATIONS INTO MEMORY To store a station into memory, you must be tuned to that station. Then you must decide which of the 40 memories to store it into.

Each press changes the amount of time the radio will play before shutting off automatically, 60 through 0 minutes. HOW TO USE THE DIAL LIGHT (button on top of radio) The LIGHT button causes the display to be illuminated. • MORE INFORMATION ABOUT SHORTWAVE Listed below are the characteristics of the major shortwave bands. Follow these guidelines for best listening results. Because shortwave signals depend on such factors as the sun, the iono- sphere and the earth itself, signals cannot be heard on all bands throughout the day.
• EVENING/NIGHT LISTENING This is the best time to listen, because the broadcasters are deliberately transmitting to North America. These bands may be extremely good around sunset and sunrise too. Best bands are BOLD. NIGHT BANDS CHARACTERISTICS Summer Months Summer Months Best two hours before/after sunrise/ sunset Good all night everywhere.
