Default radio station won't stay tuned

I have a 2008 911 turbo with the factory Nav radio. all radio stations seem fine except one. Whenever I tune into 97.9, it only stays set for a few seconds, then the radio changes to 105.1, which I don't even listen to. I've tried saving it in different memory locations, and just tuning to it directly, and no matter what I do it only stays set a few seconds, then it switches to weather and news on 105. I even tried resetting the radio to factory defaults, but same problem persists. I see a "button" for traffic, but having that selected or de-selected has no effect. Please responds if you've run into this problem

I have a 2008 997 S and the thing changes stations whenever it feels like it. Bizarre. It will even flip over to the radio when I'm listening to a CD. I havbe no answers unfortunately.

Default fix for radio station changing

The fix is to go to the settings and turn off/uncheck the RBDS. Unfortunately, this does not have a memory, so you have to turn OFF RBDS EVERY TIME you start your car...

Thanks for responding. I must be more challenged than i already thought, but where do I find the "RBDS" function? I feel like I've scrolled through all of the settings?
