The clock and radio each use the display panel built into
the radio. A digital readout shows the time in hours and
minutes whenever the ignition switch is in the ON or

the radio frequency is being displayed, time keeping is
accurately maintained.
Clock Setting Procedure

minutes. The time setting will increase each time you
press a button.

causes the amplitude, or height, of the radio waves to
vary... and FM or Frequency Modulation, in which the
frequency of the wave is varied to carry the sound.
