Exclamation Help! Is My new Kenwood KT-917 tuner working OK?

Hi all!

I know that it is a long shot to ask this question here, but I have found members on this forum to be the most knowledgeable around...

My new Kenwood KT-917 tuner has finally arrived.

It is in near mint condition and seems to works flawlessly.

I got no user manual, so I have this question:

There is this DDL LED signal lamp (it is located right above the 102 MHz mark on the tuning scale - see picture).

What is DDL? On this picture found on the net, it is lit up.There is no button on the tuner that controls it.

Click the image to open in full size.

I tuned to all available stations, but couldn't get this DDL LED to be in the "operate" status...

Is my tuner ok? Everything else works perfectly.

The only thing that I could find on Google, is that DDL could stand for: Distortion Detection Loop

This tuner is 25+ years old and without alignment, its sound quality is better than on my two years old Cambridge Audio T-500 tuner. So I can't really complain...

Thanks in advance,
