TAD-1024
Digital Telephone Answering System
with Dual-Announcement
43-784.fm Page 2 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:47 AM
FEATURES
Your RadioShack TAD-1024 Digital
Telephone Answering System with
Dual-Announcements is a high-quality
telephone answering device which you
can also control remotely from any
touch-tone phone. (With an optional
pocket tone dialer, you can even use it
from a rotary phone.)
Digital means the TAD stores all messages on a computer chip — there are
no tape mechanisms to wear out and no
tapes to bother with. This gives you capabilities that tape-based answering machines don’t have. For example, you can
delete individual messages.
The TAD-1024’s 14-minute memory capacity lets you store a lot of messages.
And its unique, space-saving design
makes it ideal for any office or nightstand.
Two-Way Recording — lets you record
both sides of your phone conversation.
Voice Time/Day Stamp — announces
the time and day when each message
was recorded.
Programmable Remote Operation
Security Code — lets you set a threedigit personal remote operation security
code for secure remote operation.
Call Screening — lets you listen as a
caller leaves a message so you can decide whether or not to answer the call.
Call Break-Through (CBT) with Programmable Code — alerts you to an important call when the caller enters a
preset code during the outgoing message.
Memory Backup — protects messages
stored in memory in case of a power failure.
Your TAD’s features include:
Dual Outgoing Message Capacity —
lets you choose between playing an outgoing message then recording the caller’s message, or just playing an
announcement without recording a message. And, when the TAD’s memory is
full, it switches automatically to just playing an announcement.
Adjustable Ring Number — lets you
set the TAD to answer the phone after
two rings, four rings or seven rings.

READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
Your TAD conforms to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most
telephone lines. However, each device
you connect to the phone line draws
power from the phone line. We refer to
this power draw is the device’s ringer
equivalence number, or REN. The REN
is on the label on the bottom of the TAD.
FCC STATEMENT
Your TAD complies with Part 68 of FCC
Rules. You must, upon request, provide
the FCC Registration Number and the
REN to your phone company. Both numbers are on the label on the bottom of the
TAD.
You must not connect the TAD to any of
the following:
• Coin-operated systems
If you are using more than one phone or
other device on the line, add up all the
RENs. If the total is more than five (or
three in rural areas), your phone(s)
might not ring and your TAD might not
answer. If ringer operation is impaired,
remove a device from the line.

• Party-line systems
• Most electronic key phone systems

INSTALLATION
SELECTING A LOCATION
TEL. LINE Jack
Select a location that is near both a modular telephone jack and an AC outlet.
Your TAD connects directly to a modular phone line jack. If the phone line jack
is not a modular jack, you must update
the wiring. You can convert the wiring
yourself, using jacks and adapters available at your local RadioShack store. Or,
you can let the phone company update
the wiring for you. The USOC number of
the jack to be installed is RJ11C.
You can also connect a telephone to the
TEL. jack on the back of the TAD using a
second modular phone cord (not supplied).
TEL. Jack
CONNECTING TO THE
TELEPHONE LINE
To connect the TAD to the phone line,
plug one end of the supplied modular
cord into the TEL. LINE jack on the back
of the TAD. Then plug the cord’s other
end into a modular phone line jack.
CONNECTING POWER
Insert the supplied adapter’s barrel plug
into the DC 9V jack on the back of the
TAD. Then plug the adapter’s other end
into a standard AC outlet.
DC 9V Jack
6
43-784.fm Page 7 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:47 AM
Caution: The supplied adapter supplies
9 volts AC, delivers at least 400 milliamps, and has a plug which properly fits
the TAD’s DC 9V jack. Using an adapter
that does not meet these specifications
might damage the TAD or the adapter.
When you first connect power, the TAD
beeps once and the message counter
counts up from 0 to 10. Then the TAD
beeps. A1, A2, Lo, CL and 0 alternately
appear to indicate that no outgoing messages are recorded, and the day/time
stamp is not set.
1. Use a flat-blade screwdriver to lift
the battery compartment cover.
2. Snap the battery’s contacts firmly to
the battery connector, then place
the battery into the compartment.
INSTALLING THE
BACKUP BATTERY
The TAD requires AC power to operate.
However, if AC power fails or you unplug
the TAD-1024, a 9V backup battery (not
supplied) saves the messages and the
settings for the day, time, and security
code. We recommend you use an alkaline battery, such as RadioShack Cat.
No. 23-553.
Caution: Always use a fresh battery of
the required size and recommended
type.
3. Replace the cover.
When the battery is low and needs replacing, Lo appears on the display. Be
sure the AC adapter’s cord is plugged in
so you do not lose the TAD’s stored information, then replace the battery. After
the battery is installed, A1, A2, CL, and
0 alternately appear.
Caution: Dispose of
promptly and properly.
old
batteries
Follow these steps to install the backup
battery.

43-784.fm Page 9 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:47 AM
RECORDING THE
OUTGOING MESSAGES
Before you can set the TAD to answer
calls and record messages, you must
record the outgoing message (OGM) the
caller hears when the TAD answers a
call. The TAD-1024 lets you record two
separate messages and it operates differently based on which message you
select (see “Setting the TAD to Answer
Calls” on Page 11).
• OGM 1 plays the message you recorded, and lets the caller leave a
message of up to 60 seconds.
• OGM 2 (announcement only) plays
the message you recorded, but
hangs up without letting the caller
leave a message. This is useful for
announcing information about an
upcoming event. Be sure the
announcement clearly states that
the caller cannot leave a message.
If
the
TAD-1024’s
memory
becomes full, it will automatically
switch from OGM 1 to OGM 2 and
play that message for any new
calls.
Note: The maximum length for each outgoing message is 32 seconds. As you
record, the display counts down the remaining recording time.
Recording the Outgoing
Messages
1. To record an OGM 1 message, hold
down OGM 1 until the TAD beeps
and A1 (Announcement 1) appears.
To record an OGM 2 message, hold
down OGM 2 until the TAD beeps
and A2 (Announcement 2) appears.
2. Speak in a normal voice about 8
inches away from the microphone
(located on the front of the TAD). If
you recording the OGM 1 message,
ask for the caller’s name, phone
number, and message.
9
43-784.fm Page 10 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:47 AM
Important: Do not tell callers that
you are not home. Instead, say that
you cannot come to the phone right
now.
3. When you finish recording, press
STOP/TIME SET. The TAD automatically plays back the outgoing message.
SETTING THE NUMBER
OF RINGS
The ring select switch on the back of the
TAD controls how long the TAD waits
before it answers a call. Slide the switch
to the appropriate position.
To play back your outgoing OGM 1 message at any time, press OGM 1. A1 appears, the TAD beeps, and the outgoing
message plays.
To play back your OGM 2 message at
any time, press OGM 2, A2 appears, the
TAD beeps, and the announcement-only
message plays.
2 — The TAD answers after two rings.
4 — The TAD answers after four rings.
7 — The TAD answers after seven rings.
T.S. (Toll Saver) — If there are new mes-
sages, the TAD answers after two rings.
Otherwise, the TAD answers after four
rings. This lets you avoid unnecessary
charges when calling by long-distance to
check your messages. If you hear more
than two rings, you know you can hang
up because the TAD has no new messages.

the TAD answers the call after 8 rings
and plays the announcement-only message (OGM 2).
11
43-784.fm Page 12 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:47 AM
SCREENING CALLS
To screen calls, let the TAD answer
them, then listen to the caller’s message
through the TAD’s speaker. If you decide to answer the call, pick up any
phone on the same phone line as the
TAD. The TAD stops recording and resets to answer the next call.
Note: If you pick up the phone just as the
TAD answers, the TAD might not stop
playing the outgoing message. If this
happens, press on the phone or STOP/
TIME SET on the TAD.
If you do not want to take the call, do not
pick up the phone, and let the TAD finish
recording the caller’s message.
To adjust the volume, rotate VOLUME
on the side of the TAD.
PLAYING MESSAGES
The display shows the total number of
messages. If there are new messages,
the power indicator also flashes until all
new messages have been played.
To play all the messages (old and new),
press PLAY. The TAD announces the
number of messages recorded, each
12
message number and the day and time
the message was recorded, and then
plays the message.
To play only new messages, hold down
PLAY for 2 seconds. (If there are no new
messages stored, the TAD says, “You
have no new messages.”)
To adjust the volume, rotate VOLUME
on the side of the TAD.
After all messages play, the TAD says,
“End of message(s)” and saves all the
messages.
To replay a message while you are listening to it, press MEMO/REPEAT. The

13
43-784.fm Page 14 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:47 AM
RECORDING A MEMO
A memo is a message you can record by
speaking directly into the TAD, without
having to call in on the phone.
Follow these steps to record a memo up
to 60 seconds long.
1. Press MEMO/REPEAT until oo appears. The TAD sounds a long beep
and 60 appears. Speak into the microphone in a normal voice. The
display shows how much time is left
for recording.
RECORDING A
CONVERSATION
You can record both sides of a conversation on any phone connected to the
same phone line as the TAD.
Note: It is illegal in some areas to record
a conversation without the consent of all
parties to the conversation, including the
phone company. Check the laws in your
area before you use the two-way recording feature.
Hold down MEMO/REPEAT until the TAD
sounds a long beep. 2R (two-way recording) appears and recording begins.

43-784.fm Page 15 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:47 AM
USING CALL BREAKTHROUGH
If you screen your calls but want to be
sure to know when calls come in from
certain people, give those people your
call breakthrough (CBT) code. Tell them
to enter the code during the outgoing
message.
When a caller enters the CBT code, the
TAD alerts you with two beeps, then it
pauses for 40 seconds. Then the TAD
sounds one beep every second for 5
seconds. To answer the call within the
45-second alert, pick up the handset. If
you do not answer, the caller can leave
a message after a long beep sounds.
Note: CBT works only when you use the
OGM 1 message.
2. Press MEMO/REPEAT. Cc appears
followed by the digits of the preset
CBT code in sequence, then the
first digit reappears. For example,
when the security code is 168, the
display shows Cc, –1, –6, –8, then
–1 reappears.
3. Repeatedly press SKIP/CODE or
MEMO/REPEAT to set the first digit,
then press ANSWER. The second
digit appears.
Note: If you enter an incorrect digit,

REMOTE OPERATION
You can operate the TAD from almost
any touch-tone phone, or from a rotary
phone using a pocket tone-dialer (available at your local RadioShack store).
REMOTE ANSWER-ON
Note: An outgoing message must be recorded before you can remotely set the
TAD to answer calls.
Notes:
• When the memory is full, the TAD
answers the call after eight rings
and plays OGM 2 (the announcement-only message).
• To bypass the outgoing message
and begin recording a message immediately when you call the TAD
from a remote phone, you can
press # during the announcement.
The TAD skips the rest of the announcement, beeps once, and begins recording.
• If the TAD is set to toll saver, it answers after two rings if you have
new messages (ones you have not
played). If there are no new messages, the TAD waits for four rings
before it answers. This gives you
time to hang up before the TAD answers so you can avoid unnecessary long-distance charges. See
“Setting the Number of Rings” on
Page 10.
To set the TAD to answer calls, dial your
phone number. The TAD answers the
call after 10 rings and sounds two beeps.
Enter the remote operation security
code within 8 seconds. The TAD sounds
one long and one short beep and plays
the OGM 1 message.
You can hang up at this point and the
TAD is set to answer calls. Or, you can
now enter other remote command(s).
If the TAD records over 8 seconds of silence, it automatically disconnects.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack TAD-1024 Digital Telephone Answering System with Dual-Announcements is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following
suggestions will help you care for the TAD so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the TAD dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids
might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Handle the TAD gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the TAD to work improperly.
Use and store the TAD only in normal temperature environments.
Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices
and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the TAD away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
Wipe the TAD with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the TAD.
Modifying or tampering with the TAD’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate your TAD’s warranty. If your TAD-1024 is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance. If the
trouble is affecting the telephone lines, the phone company can ask you to disconnect your TAD-1024 until you have resolved the problem.

43-784.fm Page 21 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:47 AM
THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
To eliminate interference, you can try
one or more of the following corrective
measures:
In the unlikely event that your TAD causes problems on the telephone line, the
telephone company attempts to notify
you in advance. If advance notice is not
practical, the telephone company notifies you as soon as possible and advises
you of your right to file a complaint with
the FCC.
• Reorient or relocate the receiving
radio or TV antenna.
Also, the telephone company can make
changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the
operation of this TAD. The telephone
company notifies you of these changes
in advance so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your
telephone services.
Consult your local RadioShack store if
the problem still exists.
Your TAD complies with the limits for a
Class B digital device as specified in
Part 15 of FCC Rules. These limits provide reasonable protection against radio
and TV interference in a residential area.
However, your TAD might cause TV or
radio interference even when it is operating properly.
• Increase the distance between the
TAD and the radio or TV.
• Use outlets on different electrical
circuits for the TAD and the radio or
TV.
LIGHTNING
Your TAD has built-in protection circuits
to reduce the risk of damage from surges in telephone and power line current.
These protection circuits meet or exceed
the FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the telephone or power
lines can damage your TAD.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has
severe electrical storms, we suggest
that you unplug the TAD during storms
to reduce the possibility of damage.
