What are the abbreviations of radio data system?

Date:2019/11/19 10:30:57 Hits:

RDS has been successfully in use for many years,. However there are many RDS acronyms or abbreviations that are used with RDS.

The RDS acronyms can be confusing as they are not always mentioned in the literature associated with a particular radio, or the instruction manual may be lost.

The common RDS acronyms and abbreviations relate to the various operational modes and facilities. These RDS acronyms are widely used in view of the fact that within countries that have adopted the system, most car radios today incorporate RDS as standard.


AF Alternative Frequencies
A list of a station's frequencies in adjacent transmitter areas.
