I.C. Notice
Radio interference
NOTICE: This equipment meets the applicable Industry
Canada Terminal Equipment Technical Specifications. This is
confirmed by the registration number. The abbreviation, IC,
before the registration number signifies that registration was
performed based on a Declaration of Conformity indicating that Industry Canada technical specifications were met. It does not
imply that Industry Canada approved the equipment.
Terminal equipment
Radio interference may occasionally cause buzzing and
humming in your cordless handset, or clicking noises in the
base. This interference is caused by external sources such
as TV, refrigerator, vacuum cleaner, fluorescent lighting, or
electrical storm. Your unit is NOT DEFECTIVE. If these noises
continue and are too distracting, please check around your
home to see what appliances may be causing the problem.
In addition, we recommend that the base not be plugged
into a circuit that also powers a major appliance because of
the potential for interference. In the unlikely event that you
consistently hear other voices or distracting transmissions on
your phone, you may be receiving radio signals from another
cordless telephone or other source of interference.
Finally, it should be noted that some cordless telephones
operate at frequencies that may cause interference to nearby
TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, the
base of the cordless telephone should not be placed near or on
top of a TV or VCR. If interference is experienced, moving the
cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR will often
reduce or eliminate the interference.
NOTICE: The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this
terminal equipment is marked on the equipment itself. The REN
assigned to each terminal equipment provides an indication
of the maximum number of terminals allowed to be connected
to a telephone interface. The termination on an interface may
consist of any combination of devices subject only to the
requirement that the sum of the Ringer Equivalence Numbers
of all the devices does not exceed five.
Radio equipment
The term “IC:” before the radio certification number only signifies
that Industry Canada technical specifications were met.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this
device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must
accept any interference, including interference that may cause
undesired operation of the device. “Privacy of communications
may not be ensured when using this telephone.”
Precautions!
Cordless telephone privacy
Cordless telephones are radio devices. Communications
between the handset and base of your cordless telephone are
accomplished by means of radio waves which are broadcast
over the open airways. Because of the inherent physical
properties of radio waves, your communications can be
received by radio receiving devices other than your own .
cordless telephone unit. Consequently, any communications
using your cordless telephone may not be private.
