FUNCTIONS and CONTROLS
Set Up and Use Instructions
- BATTERY – Remove the battery hatch cover and insert a 9VDC Alkaline Battery. Be sure to attach the +/- polarity correctly to ensure proper operation.
- POWER – Slide the POWER OFF-ON switch to the ON position and CHN 1 & CHN 2 will default to the FM frequency.
- FUNCTION – Use the FUNCTION button to select and toggle between CHN 1, CHN 2 single sweep, or CHN 1 & CHN 2 simultaneously dual sweep operation.
- AM/FM SELECTION – Tap the AM-FM button to select AM or FM. Above the button is an LED indicator, FM is identified with a RED color and AM is identified with a BLUE color. You can perform a single sweep AM/FM individually or dual sweep FM/FM, AM/AM or AM/FM. Also note that the AM/FM LED light will blink at the same rate as the sweep rate selected.
- VOLUME – Adjust CHN 1 & CHN 2 volume by pressing and holding the VOL + and VOL – buttons. The Volume can vary depending on P-SB11 setting variables. For example, if you have CH1 on FM and CHN 2 on AM, the volume on the AM may be softer. Thus, you may want to adjust the AM louder to create a more balanced sound in accordance to individual listening preferences. In addition, deactivating the AM or FM Antenna can greatly affect the reception volume, especially in the AM sweep mode.
- SWEEP DIRECTION – Press and hold the sweep REV (Reverse) or FWD (Forward) momentary buttons for about two seconds to initiate the sweep. A RED LED will turn ON when the sweep is active. Tap the button to pause and resume the sweep.
- SWEEP RATE – The FM sweep rate is adjustable in steps from 50 thru 300 milli-seconds (mS). The AM is adjustable from 50 thru 350 milli-seconds (mS). The FM sweep speed is identified using a RED positional LED. The AM LED array sweep speed is identified using a BLUE positional LED. If FM/FM or AM/AM dual sweep is selected for CHN 1 & CHN 2, two RED (FM) or BLUE (AM) LED’s will appear in the sweep SPEED LED array.
- ANTENNA SWITCH – Depending on personal preferences, the AM/FM antenna switch located on the side of the P-SB11 can be used to connect or disconnect the AM coil and FM telescopic antenna from the P-SB11 circuit. The following combinations are possible:
- AM/FM antenna active – ON (GREEN LED)
- AM/FM antenna deactivated (RED LED)
- FM deactivated, AM activated (RED LED)
- AM deactivated, FM activated (RED LED)
Note: Reception of very strong channels can still occur. AM volume may be reduced.
- TEMPERATURE – The P-SB11 has ambient temperature deviation detection (ATDD) built into it. To turn this ON, slide the switch located on the left side of the P-SB11 to “TEMP.” This circuit is designed specifically to detect +5 / -5 degree Hot& Cold spots using RED LED’s for (+) and BLUE LED’s for (-). There are five individual ascending tones for +5 degree, and five individual descending tones for a -5 degree change. The sound (tones) can be turned OFF using the following procedure:
- +5 degree Sound OFF / -5 degree Sound ON – Press and hold the TEMP RESET button until all RED LED’s are illuminated, then quickly release the button while the LED’s are on.
- +5 degree Sound ON / -5 degree Sound OFF – Press and hold the TEMP RESET button until all BLUE LED’s are illuminated, then quickly release the button while the LED’s are on.
- +5 degree Sound OFF / -5 degree Sound OFF – Press and hold the TEMP RESET button until LED’s sequence all RED, all BLUE and then back to all RED and then quickly release the button while the LED’s are on.
- Note: User can baseline at any time using the TEMP RESET button.
- FLASHLIGHT – The P-SB11 uses a very bright RED LED with reflector cone for optimum illumination. To activate the flashlight, slide the LIGHT-OFF-TEMP switch to the LIGHT setting. P-SB11 power must be ON to use the flashlight. Use the MUTE button to silence the speakers at any time.
- MUTE – A MUTE button is located on the right side of the P-SB11. Push to turn the speaker sound OFF, push again to turn the speaker sound back ON. This is ideal to instantly silence the P-SB11 without interfering with your settings.
- AUDIO OUTPUTS – There are two independent mono audio outputs. One for CHN 1 and one for CHN 2.
