MostRDS radios can receive short messages which might include informationabout the presenter, station or programme you are listening to. Forexample, BBC Radio 1's RadioTEXT always gives information about thepresenter and programme e.g. JOHN PEEL - TONIGHT IN SESSION.. ETC.., whereas Classic FM gives information which includes a web address for the station, e.g. CLASSIC FM ON THE WEB - WWW.CLASSICFM.COM.The information will usually scroll across the display on a home tuner,but this could be distracting to a driver in a car, so the RadioTEXTmessage in a car hi-fi does not scroll.

Theradio display can show if the station broadcasts travel information.Since most stations do anyway, this feature by itself is of limitedvalue. The Traffic Announcement (TA) feature allows interruption of aCD or cassette tape when there is a travel report from the radiostation that is currently tuned-in. The radio will automatically switchfrom CD or tape to the radio for the duration of the travelannouncement. Commercial radio stations willbroadcast three tones or 'bleeps' before and after the travel bulletin,but BBC radio stations do not need this. These DTMF tones are used whenthe transmitter (where the RDS inserter physically is) is locatedremotely from the studio, and for reasons of cost or practicality thereis no control path from the studio to the transmitter to tell thetransmitter when to switch on the TA flag. The only link from studio totransmitter is the station audio itself. Inthese situations, "in-band signalling" is used. A unit at thetransmitter site listens out for the DTMF tones in order to switch theTA flag on and off. The DTMF tones are recorded on the traffic jinglesto make life easier for the presenter. For the TA feature to work underany circumstances, however, the function marked TA, TI, TP or 'Traffic'must be switched on. It is possible to search out only those stations broadcasting the Traffic Programme on some radios.

Sirius radio problems


I would do the following, hoping one of them works.

1) DISCONNECT the power to the radio and SiriusXM unit to "clear" it. Then reconnect and ask Sirius to resend signat.

2) Ask Sirius to UNSUBCRIBE that radio so it is deactivated. Then, have them reactivate and resend programing signal.


3) Be sure your car is outside under clear sky when Sirius sends the program signal.


4) It is possible the antenna cable to your unit is loose at the connections and/or damaged. A weaker signal may get your stations, but may prevent the additional Navigational signals. Have the antenna checked thoroughly and tested. If car is still under warranty, this should be a covered diagnostic/repair.

5) Finally, be sure the correct Radio Serial Number is being activated. If your radio works, that is one service. But maybe they are putting a wrong number by some chance into the system to fix this one? For example, you have TWO radios in TWO cars. Are they sending the turn on signal to the WRONG radio? Not as farfetched as you might think.

Good luck!

What is the traffic button for in a 2002 alero


According to the owners manual

TRAF (Traffic): Press this button to receive traffic announcements. The traffic announcement brackets will appear on the display. TRAF will appear on the display if the current station broadcasts traffic announcements. If the current station does not broadcast traffic announcements, the radio will seek to a station that does. When the radio finds a station that broadcasts traffic announcements, it will stop. If no station is found, NO TRAFFIC will appear on the display. When a traffic announcement comes on the current radio station or a related network station, you will hear it, even if the volume is muted or a compact disc is playing. If the compact disc player was being used, the compact disc will stay in the player and resume play at the point where it stopped. INFO (Information): If the current station has a message, INFO will appear on the display. Press this button to see the message. If the whole message does not appear on the display, parts of the message will appear every three seconds until the message is completed. To see the parts of the message faster than every three seconds, press this button again. A new group of words will appear on the display. Once the complete message has been displayed, INFO will disappear from the display until another new message is received. Hope this helps.

Digital tone not bringing up repeater


Without knowing the model of radio or the specific repeater you are trying to access, the only things I can suggest are 1) check to make sure your radio is setup for duplex operation, 2) check to make sure the offset is correct for the repeater, 3) make sure you are in tone mode (not tone squelch mode) and that the tone is correct for the repeater, 4) if the repeater is still not coming up, listen for a while to see if others can access it. If you don't hear other traffic on the repeater there is a possibility that it is down.

Other information that would help get you an answer would be the make / model of the radio (you said Vertex but that could also mean Yaesu), and information on the repeater you are accessing (frequency, location, repeater callsign).

Cheryl j11 radio beeps and says t p lost


Chery J11 radio beeps and says TP Lost

The Short Answer
This can be pretty annoying as the beep occurs every few minutes. The cause is that the advanced features of the radio are searching for broadcast traffic information, and can't find it.
Generally, only some of the radio stations in major cities carry traffic information, so this feature may not be very useful to you anyway.
To disable the beep, press the TA/AF button on the radio for more than 2 seconds, and you should see AF OFF appear on the display, meaning that the Traffic Announcement Alternate Frequencies feature is no longer searching for (and not finding) traffic information.
Unfortunately, the Chery radio manual doesn't fully explain this.

More...

Traffic Information (TA) Control
Some stations broadcast on the FM waveband have a TP code to signify that they carry traffic programme (TP) information. This is part of the RDS (Radio Data System) used on FM.
Activating traffic announcements
Before you can receive traffic announcements (TA), you must press the TA button. A TA display will appear to show the feature is switched on.
Note: On some units a short press to reach the TA feature.
If you are already tuned to a station that broadcasts traffic information, TA or TP will also be displayed. Otherwise the unit will search for a traffic programme and display TA SRCH or TP SEEK while doing so. If it cannot locate such a station, Not Found or NO TA will be displayed.

https://www.scribd.com/doc/60900285/audio-guide-1-cg3508en-01-2006


TP lost
If the TP signal of tuned station is lost after 30 seconds, an automatic TP seek for the next TP station will be performed. If no TP station is found, the unit will remain at the current station and display "TP LOST" for 2 seconds, and emit a beep.
TP seek will be performed periodically few minutes until a TP station is found.

Can call out but can't receive calls


Not enough information. Do you get noise with the squelch open? Can you hear other radio traffic but they do not answer you? Is the audio completely silent?

Can you leave a Motorola XPR 6350 radio turned on while in the impres charging base? Basically I would like to leave the radio on at all times to hear any traffic, but I do not want to damage or shorten...


The radios will work just fine while they are charging, but the charging process will take longer, and I recommend that you do not charge the radios for more than 12 hours at a time. My Midland radios sit in the charger base all the time, and I just push them down to engage the charging function.

Need master code for radio in a 2000 ml320


Hi,

Regretfully due to reasons of theft or piracy we do not pass the radio codes here at FixYa. If you contact your local Mercedes-Benz dealer they will give you the 5 digit code. (You must have your registration and know the complete serial number of the radio)

Inside


In simple terms the internals of the router are of little physical interest -- given that I would describe a router as a computer that controls communication traffic. In the case of this specific device it can distribute an incoming internet connections to up to 4 wired devices and numerous wireless devices. Internally the routers programming can be optionally configured (generally using an internet browser). Some of the capablities include the ability to encrypt wireless communications to prevent others from using your internet connection, it can address logon/login requirement should your internet service provider require them and it can limit access to specified MAC addresses assigned to your network cards (also preventing unauthorized access). Again physically what is inside a router is of little interest to me as the changes I consider necessary are all accessible from a web browser without physically getting inside of the router.
