Ventilation - The appliance should be situated so that its location or position does not interfere
with its proper ventilation. For example, the appliance should not be situated on a bed, sofa,
rug or similar surface that may block the ventilation openings, or placed in a built-in
installation, such as a bookcase or cabinet, that may impede the flow of air through the
ventilation openings.
Heat - The appliance should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat
registers, stoves, or other appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat..
Power Sources - The product should be operated only with the type of power supply indicated
on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult
your product dealer or local power company. For products intended to operate from battery
power, or other sources, refer to the operation instructions.
Grounding Polarization - This product may be equipped with a polarized alternating current
line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet
only one way this is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet,
try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your
obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
Power-Cord Protection - Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to
be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to
cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the appliance.
Cleaning - Unplug this product from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid
cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.

Power Lines - An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead
power lines, or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines
or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep
from touching power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver, be sure the
antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built
up static. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code ANSI/NEFA 70 provides information
with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding conductress,
location of antenna-discharge unit, size of grounding electrodes, and requirements for the
grounding electrode (see figure).
