Scan Tuning

Technology / Home Audio / Scan Tuning: In FM receivers, Preset Scan automatically plays a brief sample of what's on each of the preset stations. Station Scan samples each strong station regardless of whether it has been preset. Seek tuning moves to the next strong station and stops there — the 'Seek' button must be manually initiated again to repeat the process.
