Dynamic Retro Scale – Configuration menu
In the configuration menu you can find manyoptions:

- Add / Edit Station (Add new stations and edit stations added or found with auto search, seven characters, numbers, Latin, Cyrillic)
- Rename of the scale (change the name of the scale)
- Clear scale (delete scale)
- Change to another scale (switch to another scale)
- Load a preset (presets which created by the autor)
- Change the color (green, yellow or white scale)
Dynamic Retro Scale – Auto Search
With the “Auto Search” you can search for all stations which you can receive. The Dynamic Retro Scales can show the stations after the auto search. If the search found a station, it shows the message “PILOT-TONE DETECTED”. There is a limit of 69 stations. The search process is looking like this and takes about 5 minutes:
After the search is finished, you can see all stations the search has found and you can save the result as a new scale:
After the scan is saved, it´s look like this:
Problems with auto search
If you find too much or too less stations and “WMF Stereo” is enabled, try to activate the headphone. Perhaps it can also help to connect a headphone to the audio out socket. WMF Stereo can only work with a headphone, because without the pilot tone can´t be determined.
Thanks to Peter!

A similar problem with autosearch was in M1, it was solved long ago, autosearch does not depend on audio connections. Let’s solve this in M2 as well.))
