FCC Part 68
The FCC requires that you connect your
cordless
telephon~
-to the nationwide
telephone
network
tMough
a modular
telephone jack (USOC ~J11C or RJ11W).
Your telephone company may discontinue
your service if your equipment causes harm
to the telephone network. They will notify
you in advance of disconnection, if possible.
During notification, you will be informed of
your right to file a complaint with the FCC.
If it is determined that your telephone
equipment
is malfunctioning,
the FCC
requires that it not be used and that it be
unplugged from the modular jack until the
problem has been corrected. Repairs to this
telephone equipment can only be made by
the manufacturer or its authorized agents or
by others who may be authorized by the
FCC.
For repair procedures,
follow the
instructions outlined under the AUDIOVOX
Limited Warranty.
The REN is useful in determining
the
number of devices you may connect to your
telephone line and still enable the devices
to ring when you receive a call. The general
rule is that the REN value should not exceed
5.0A total; however, contact your local
telephone company for the specific number
in your area.

To insert a pause in a phone number,
press HOLD at the appropriate point when
entering the number. This inserts a 2 second
pause. For longer pauses, press HOLD two
or more times.
Each press makes the

still monitor each other to make sure that they
can communicate.
If the handset is moved
out of range, the handset will make a series
of beeps, and then the PHONE and MUTE/
LOW BArT LEOS will flash continually. The
handset
will re-Iink
with
the base
automatically once it is brought back within
range. The unit will then be able to receive
and place calls.
When the base unit is unplugged from the
power supply, the handset will give the Out

again and this will stop.
NOISE OR INTERFERENCE
Your Audlovox
DST961
cordless
telephone has auto-channel scan circuitry,
which will detect excess noise and change
the channel of the phone to reduce it. This
is done automatically.
Since the Audlovox
DST961 is a fully
digital phone, it does not suffer from noise
associated with regular cordless phones.
At times you may experience occasional
rop outs especially at the extreme edges
of the phone
range. Simply move closer
to the base unit and this will disappear.
