From the opening screen, press to select the menu, then press to select Set Radio Station. Example: In Catoosa County, key in 1019. Press to enter and return to the opening screen. The decimal point, such as 101.9, is not necessary.
The Community Messenger will scan and select a station on its own, but you should manually select the desired station as there may be more than one station that the radio can tune to broadcasting DataFM codes. Your receiver will probably be able to receive network affiliated stations capable of sending you messages from adjoining communities, therefore, you should select the station in your community sending messages of interest. The primary station for your community will be given to you at the time you buy the receiver. You can also view a listing of stations with maps on http://www.datafm.com.
If you are not receiving a good signal, while in the “Set Radio Station” menu, try pressing to select the distance mode. If the signal doesn’t improve, return to the local mode and install an external antenna.
When the signal for the primary station is lost, the unit will automatically search for another station and will lock onto the new signal, but it will continue checking the original signal until the station returns to service. This will allow for emergency messages when your hometown station is off the air for any reason.
From the main screen, press to select the menu, then press to enter the Select Community mode. You will then enter a number that is assigned to your specific, local community. This number allows the receiver to receive area specific information as well as emergency warnings for your area.
