The ‘antenna’ provides the means of controlling the power, frequency, and volume. To turn the power on, the user must grasp the ball gently and pull it upwards. To manually adjust the frequency, the user must lightly push the controller to the left or right. For automatic frequency adjustment, the controller must be pushed left or right for an extended period of time. To adjust the volume, the user must hold the ball and turn it to the left or right. At the front of the radio is a speaker with hidden lighting for frequency, and volume information review.
