Telescopic aerial(3) for FM and SW reception. When the aerial base is completely pulled out, the telescopic aerial can be tilted and rotated into different positions. For SW reception, fully extend the aerial and place it vertically. Due to the much more better propagation conditions during the evening and night hours, there may be interferences during these hours. These interferences can be reduced by partially pushing in the telescopic aerial. Please note Touching the telescopic antenna reduces FM and SW reception quality. Ferrite aerial for MW and LW reception (built-in). Turn the unit about its vertical axis to find the best reception position.
AC (Mains) Operation
Only use the supplied AC (mains) unit NR 90-1 for the set. Adjust the local mains voltage on the AC (mains) unit. 220. 240V 110. 127V
Connect the mains unit to the DC IN 9 V socket(30) (30). This automatically disconnects the inserted batteries. - No responsibility can be accepted for damage due to operation with the voltage selector set to the wrong position. Remove the batteries if the unit is to be operated permanently on the mains!
With four 1.5 V batteries, type IEC LR 6 or AA. We recommend the use of alkaline-manganese batteries with low mercury constituent or no mercury at all. Disconnect the plug of the AC (mains) unit from the DC IN 9 V socket (30). Open the cover of the battery compartment (10) (on back of unit). Insert the batteries with correct polarity (see scheme on bottom of battery compartment). For this, observe the order of the batteries and the position of the take-out ribbon (see Fig. to the right) When the batteries get weak, a battery symbol ( will appear in the display (4). )
Attention Remove exhausted batteries immediately from the unit! If the unit is not to be used for longer periods, remove batteries even if they are new! No responsibility can be accepted for damage due to leaking batteries. Note on environmental protection Do not throw exhausted batteries in the houshold waste ! Hand over the old batteries to your radio dealer or a public collecting point when buying new ones.
(Mains and Battery Operation) When the power supply is disconnected, the time and the last station memory are retained for approx. 5 minutes. If, due to external interferences (caused by static charges of carpets, thunderstorms, etc.), the control electronics of your Yacht Boy 500 should receive wrong information signals, or if no entries at all are possible, then press the Reset button. This is to be found behind the top right opening in the decorative speaker grill. For pushing the switch, it is best to use a bent-up paper clip. By releasing the Reset impulse, the unit is reset to its initial programming state. The contents of the individual station memory locations are not affected. However the time setting and the contents of the last station memory will be cleared. The stored stations and menu options will not be lost neither by a power supply failure nor by a Reset.

The type plate is to be found below-this stand. To switch the unit on or off, press the ON/OFF button (locking switch (11) in "UNLOCK" position).
By pressing the button (13) (indication in the display (4)), it is possible to "lock" the function buttons on the front panel when the unit is switched on, thus preventing an inadvertent use of these buttons. Press once again on the button to "unlock" the function keys.
To protect the unit against inadvertent switching on during transportation, set the switch (11) to "LOCK". (Indication I LOCKED in the display (4)). This disables all functions of the unit, such as the alarm function. However, the function settings are retained. To clear the "LOCKED function", set the switch (11) to "UNLOCK". The indication LOCKED must disappear.
You can enter all numeric values with the numeric buttons (5) Frequencies, station memory locations (programming or calling up), SW meter bands, clock times and switching times. You dispose of approx. 60 seconds for each entry step. If you exceed this period of time, you are obliged to restart. When operating the unit via the menu, the unit switches automatically to radio operation approx. 60 seconds after having made the last entry. You must always conclude (confirm) your entries with one of the following buttons: FM/RDS-AF, AM, STORE, MEMORY and TIME I/TIME II. To immediately correct a bad entry which is not yet confirmed, press the CLEAR b u t t o n ( 8 ). If you make a wrong entry or an operating error, a hint o r an error message will appear for approx. 2 seconds in t h e d i s p l a y ( 4 ) after having concluded the respective entry or operation.
Step by Step into the World of Shortwave Reception
On which frequency(ies) you then can receive, for example, BBC London, depends on the time of day. Select "your" frequency(ies) out of the 16 preprogrammed frequencies. Please note: Beside the indications given in the example, no further indications should be visible in the display. The time indication (TIME I/II) is meaningless in this case
Switch the unit on with the O N /O FF button (11). - The frequency tuned to appears in the display, on FM in MHz, on AM in kHz. - A separate tuning memory is provided for each waveband. 1. Frequency Tuning in the FM Band Select the FM waveband. - You hear the station last received in the FM band. You tune to the desired station by briefly pressing one of the buttons TUNE or TUNE (19). Each pressure on the button changes the tuning frequency by 25 kHz. A longer pressure on one of the buttons TUNE or TUNE (19) starts the automatic station search. TUNE =the search is started in direction of lower frequencies. TUNE =the search is started in direction of higher frequencies. - The station search operates in the 100 kHz mode. - The display (4) indicates AS (Auto-Search) = automatic station search. The automatic station search will stop as soon as it has found a station appropriate for good reception. It then can be restarted by a longer pressure on one of the TUNE / buttons. If the found station is an RDS station, the RDS symbol and the station name (see "Special Functions on FM") will be displayed after a few moments. In addition, the display (4) indicates O for the tuning memory, and you will hear the station.
Tuning to Stations with the TUNE A/V buttons
2. Frequency Tuning in the AM bands Select one of the AM bands. - You will hear the station last tuned to in the respective A M band. M W and LW Tune to the desired station by brief pressures on one of the buttons TUNE or TUNE (19). Each pressure on one of the buttons changes the tuning frequency by 1 kHz. Each longer pressure on one of the buttons TUNE / increases or decreases the frequency tuned to by 9kHz (on MW, this can be changed to 9/10kHz via the menu). If a frequency lying outside of the frequency raster has been tuned to before pressing one of the TUNE / buttons, the unit automatically tunes to the next raster frequency in the respective direction. A very long pressure on one of the TUNE / buttons starts the frequency scan (station search) in the desired direction. Each frequency then will be heard for approx. 1 seconds. Pressing a random button will abort this function. SW A longer pressure on one of the TUNE / buttons will step 5 kHz down or up within the selected m-band. In the amateur bands, the tuning mode is 1 kHz. If the current frequency lies beyond the limits of a meter band, the unit automatically tunes to the limit (cut-off) frequency of the next adjacent m-band. When the end of a band is reached, the unit jumps to the beginning of the same band. A very long pressure on one of the TUNE / buttons will start an automatic frequency scan in 5/1 kHz steps up or down within the selected meter band. Each raster frequency then will be heard for approx. 1 seconds. Pressing a random button will abort this function. Long pressure on the AM button: Switching to the lower limit (cut-off) frequency of the following m-band.
Tuning to Stations
The display (4) indicates 0 for tuning memory and you hear, the station.
Tuning to Stations with the Numeric Buttons (Direct frequency entry) For this, you must know the frequency of the station you wish to tune to. You can find these frequencies in station tables or radio guides. You can enter the desired frequency in M H z o r kHz, or as m-band in the case of SW stations. Confirm each entry wit the buttons FM/RDS-AF for FM or AM (17) for LW, MW and SW. O n F M : M Hz indication O n A M : kHz indication

Storing in Memory General
What can You Store?
You can programme up to 40 station memory locations in random order, also mixed from the 4 wavebands FM - M W -LWSW. You can store in memory each frequency you have tuned to. The associated operating states (mono/stereo, LSB/USB) are automatically stored with the frequency. On each station memory position, you can store in addition - even at a later date - an alphanumeric abbreviation (e.g., station name) of up to 8 positions. With FM-RDS stations, the station name is automatically displayed and transferred into the respective station memory location when storing the station.
Calling Up Stored Stations
(e.g., station name) On each station memory location (1. 40), a station name (up to 8 positions) which then is indicated in the display can be programmed along with the frequency. This is possible either when storing the frequency or at a later date. Examples for station names are WARSAW, HELSINKI, BUDAPEST, etc. The entry is initialized with the A - Z button. If the hint RDS or ROM TAB appears after having pressed this button A - Z, entry of the abbreviation is inhibited. If entry of the name is possible, the radio will continue to play on the chosen station. The cursor will flash at the left in the display. The TUNE / buttons allow you to enter letters (AZ), figures (0-9), and several special characters. Each pressure on the A - Z button moves the cursor one position to the right for entering the next character. A longer pressure on the button moves the cursor to the left thus allowing you to correct a wrong entry. If you wish to enter spaces or less than 8 positions, use the blank character (between 9 and A). After having entered the last position, press the A - Z button once again. The cursor disappears and the entry is allocated the station memory location. When pressing the A - Z button once again, the cursor reappears at the first position, and you can, for example, correct the entry. Exiting this function with the CLEAR button: The entry is not stored in memory. When surpassing the timeout of > 15 seconds: The actual entry is automatically stored in memory. Enter the number of the desired station memory location with the numeric buttons. Press the MEMORY button. - If the called up memory location is not programmed with a station, the indication FREE appears for approximately 2 seconds in the display. You will still hear the station tuned to before. - When calling up stored stations with the numeric buttons, the unit automatically switches to the correct waveband (Intermix function).
The MEMORY Button (Memory Scan)
This button allows you to call up occupied memory locations one after the other: Brief pressure on the button = memory location numbers up, longer pressure on the button = memory location numbers down. The next possible memory position location is called up and its name is indicated if it has been entered or if it is received via the RDS system. Unoccupied memory locations are automatically skipped.
A very long pressure on the CLEAR button will clear the actual station memory location. The display indicates FREE and the station number.
Clearing an Occupied Memory Position
The SLEEP button allows you to enter a "go-to-sleep time" (time the radio will still play) of up to 60 minutes. Press the SLEEP button. The unit is switched on. Repeated pressures on the SLEEP button increase the playing time in 10-minutes steps (up to 60 minutes). Indication: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 10, 20, etc. A longer pressure on the button increases the playing time automatically in 10-minutes steps. symbol and the entered - The display indicates the "go-to-sleep time". - When this time has elapsed, the unit automatically switches off and the indication disappears. Checking the playing time: Briefly press the SLEEP button. The display indicates the time remaining until the unit is automatically switched off. Premature erasure of the playing time: Switch the radio off with the ON/OFF button or press the SNOOZE button.
Going to Sleep to Radio
The timeout (period during which you must complete each entry) of approx. 60 seconds applies also for the clock. You can enter times whether the radio is switched on or off. You can enter clock times and switching times in several different ways. Examples: Entry sequence Clock time 1 st example: Clock time 6.30 2nd example: Clock time 15.00 3rd example: Clock time 0.0015 (TIME I/Clock time I) with the help of a reference clock. Example TIME 1: 6.30 hours: The display must indicate TIME I. Enter the clock time with the numeric buttons. Press and hold down the TIME I/II button until the reference clock jumps from 6.29.59 to 6.30.00. - As soon as you release the TIME I/II button, the clock starts running right on the dot and the colon between the hours and the seconds indication will flash.
Setting the Clock
(TIME II/Clock time II). For setting TIME II/Clock time II proceed in the some way, with the only difference that the display must indicate TIME II. As the seconds of clock time II run synchronously with clock time I, you must not wait for the minutes change-over in this case.
Clock Time Indication TIME I/II
Repeated pressures on the TIME I/II button (without preceding number entry) will switch between the two clock time indications.
For the function "wake-up by the radio programme", you can enter two independent switch-on and switch-off times. Each switch-on time can be assigned to a different radio station. For example, you can let your radio switch on to your favorite station by the switch-on time 1. If you wish then to hear a programme (e.g., the latest news) broadcasted by a different station after switching on by switchon time 1, select this programme with switch-on time 2 and switch-off time 2. When the switch-on time 2 then is reached, you will hear the desired station until the radio is turned off by the switchoff time 2. Then the radio continues playing your favorite programme until the switch-off time 1 is reached. Please note. if both switching times are programmed and overlap each other: - Switch-on times have always priority over switch-off times. - The second switching times have priority over the first switching times. Already programmed stations are not affected by time programming. The switching times always refer to the times indicated in the display (TIME I or TIME II). An example for better understanding: You have programmed the local time (e.g., CET or CEST) as TIME I. TIME II stands for a second time zone (e.g., Greenwich Mean Time/GMT). You have entered 14.00 hours as switch-on time and set the radio to "AUTO". If then the display indicates TIME I, the radio will be switched on at 14.00 hours local time; if the display indicates TIME II, the unit will be switched on at 14.00 hours of the second time zone.

Briefly press the SNOOZE (2) button - The alarm sound signal will be interrupted for approx. 5 minutes. - The symbol will be indicated. - This function can be repeated as often as desired. Press the SNOOZE button a long time. - The alarm signal will prematurely be switched off (for 24 hours). - The programmed switching times are retained. 3. With alarm sound siqnal and radio proqramme The functions "wake-up by radio programme" and "wake-up by alarm sound signal" can be combined. Enter the alarm times as described under paragraphs 1 and 2. Switching Off the Automatic Functions Press the AUTO button. - The alarm mode indications must disappear. - The programmed switching times are retained. Timer Recordings If you possess a cassette recorder with start/stop remote control facility, you can use the switching times of the radio to switch on and off the cassette recorder for recording radio programmes. Proceed as follows:
Connect the output switch jack the cassette recorder.
(29) with the switch jack of
Automatic Control of a Cassette Recorder For this, you require an appropriate connecting cable. Please contact your specialized dealer or the GRUNDIG After-Sales Department. To make recordings with the cassette recorder, the LINE OUT socket(* of the radio must be connected with the LINE IN socket of the cassette recorder. Switch the cassette recorder to recording-start. When the Yacht Boy 500 is automatically switched on, the cassette recorder is also automatically started and records the programme broadcasted by the selected station.
Special Functions on FM
RDS (Radio Data System) RDS is a digital information system, the signals of which are broadcasted in addition to the FM radio programme. Your radio is equipped for operation with this information system. It evaluates the codes for programme identification (PI), programme service (PS), and alternative frequencies (AF). It is thus possible for the radio to indicate the name of the programme chain (stations broadcasting the same programme) and to compare the different stations of the same programme chain. To ensure a correct decoding of the RDS signals, certain demands are made on the reception quality of RDS broadcasts. This is especially true when the telescopic aerial is used for reception. The first condition for correct RDS reception is a sufficient signal strength. This means that the TUNING (field strength) indication should reach its maximum deflection. A further condition is the indication of the RDS sign. If these two conditions are met, the name of the programme chain will be indicated within 10 seconds. If this should not be the case, decoding of the RDS signal is probably impaired by multipath reception (reflections). In most cases, this distortion is not signalled through an unstable TUNING (field strength) indication. At the most, the RDS indication might be unstable. In technical jargon, this effect is called The RDS reception quality is insufficient. A special function of your unit enables the indication of the RDS reception quality. Pressing the LSB/USB button switches the eight-position alphanumeric indication to the RDS quality indication: Q. Try to improve the RDS reception quality by changing the position of the telescopic aerial (tilt and/or rotate). This means that as many segments as possible should be indicated. The figure shows the maximum possible number of 16 sensitivity grades (vertical bars). This indication corresponds to 100 % RDS reception quality (respectively 0 % error rate). Especially when operating the radio inside a building, the location of the radio can be of great importance for the RDS reception quality. If necessary, try to install the radio at a location giving better results. The RDS-Q special function remains effective for approx. 1 minute and then automatically switches to the indication of the programme chain name. It is also possible to switch the RDS-Q indication to the programme chain name indication by pressing the LSB/USB button once again. Please note: The indication of the programme chain name is only effected if the RDS reception quality is sufficient, and the indication of the RDS quality is only possible if the RDS sign is indicated too. Calling Up Alternative Frequencies (AF)
If the RDS sign and the programme chain name are both indicated, you can call up the alternative frequencies of this programme chain. Pressing the FM/RDS-AF button starts scanning of t broadcasted alternative frequencies. During this function, the indication AF appears in the disp l a y (4). The individual frequencies are then checked for their field strength (worthy of reception or not). If the field strength suffices for correct RDS reception, scanning is aborted. The respective frequency is indicated and the unit switches off the muting function which has been activated at the beginning of the scan (call-up) function. If none of the alternative frequencies is worthy of reception the radio tunes to the initial frequency again. Hint Short pressure on the FM/RDS-AF button = the alternative frequencies are indicated in increasing order. Long pressure on the FM/RDS-AF button = the alternative frequencies are indicated in decreasing order
Special Functions on AM
SSB (Single Side Band) Reception on SW. is an additional function to "normal" radio reception. Switch the radio onand select a SW amateur band (SSB stations are mainly broadcasted on these bands). Set the TONE switch (26) to SPEECH. Use the TUNE / buttons (19) to slowly scan the band step by step for SSB stations. When doing this, please note that the carrier is suppressed on SSB broadcasts. This means that reception is only possible when the transmitter is actually broadcasting a programme (mostly in speech). During pauses, no tuning is possible. The TUNIN G indication is of great help when searching SSB stations. The TUNING indication deflects in the rhythm of the speech (modulation) when an SSB station is received. As soon as a station is found - the speech is still unintelligible - select the lower o r upper side band with the stepping button LSB/USB (22). Tune to best intelligibility with the FINE TUNING control (12). If you wish to terminate SSB reception, do not forget to switch back to "normal" AM radio reception Repeatedly press the LSB/USB button until the LSB/USB indication disappears. Interferences If there are interferences on the AM (MW, LW, SW) bands, you can optimize reception with the FINE TUNING control (12).
