Hi David.

Press the preset button and hold for 2 seconds until the screen flashes. you then need to rotate the wheel up or down to the position you want the preset to be stored in. when you reach the position that the preset should be stored in, press the wheel in to select and that should store the station. on mine, i've got the stations I listen too most in 1 to 5, so I know what position is at preset 1 etc. I just got someone sighted to set mine. Its not exactly easy on goodmans part for a totally VI person to set them.

cheers,

Mo.

After recommendations on this list both my sister and myself bought this Goodmans DAB radio as we were both having problems after the DAB frequency changes recently on our existing units.

The radio seems a good device but neither my sister nor myself have been able to crack setting and recalling presets on this radio.

According to the manual setting a preset is simply a matter of pressing the preset button for two seconds. Recalling a Preset is a matter of holding the Preset button and using the dial to select a stored station though it is not clear how the dial is to be manipulated to achieve this. For whatever reason my sister and I have both faile to stoere and recall Presets by using these instructions. It might be that these instructions make sense for a sighted person because of feedback on the unit that we cannot see.

 Has anybody got step by  step
instructions suitable for a totally blind user of the radio?
