TAD-798
Digital Telephone Answering System
with Call Breakthrough
43-798.fm Page 2 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:33 AM
FEATURES
Your RadioShack TAD-798 Digital Telephone Answering System is a highquality telephone answering device
(TAD) that 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.
The TAD-798 stores messages on a
computer chip. This gives you better
performance than tape-based answering machines. For example, you can delete an individual message while saving
the rest. Because your TAD is fully digital, there are no tapes to bother with
and no tape mechanisms to wear out.
The TAD-798’s 16-minute capacity lets
you store a lot of messages. And its
unique, space-saving design makes it
ideal for any office or nightstand.
The TAD-798 has these features:
High Capacity — lets you record up to
16 minutes of messages and memos.
Each incoming message can be up to
60 seconds long.
Call Breakthrough (CBT) — alerts you
to an important call when the caller enters a code you set.
Two-Way Recording — lets you record
both sides of a phone conversation.
Memo Recording — lets you leave
messages for yourself or others in your
home or office.
Dual Announcements — let 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. Each announcement
can be up to 32 seconds long.
Adjustable Ring Number — lets you
set the TAD to answer the phone after
two, four, or seven rings.
Toll-Saver — lets you avoid unnecessary charges when you call by long-distance to check your messages.
Voice Time/Day Stamp — announces
the time and day that each message
was recorded.

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

PREPARATION
Select a location for the TAD that is
near both a telephone jack and an AC
outlet, and is not in the way of normal
activities.
CONNECTING THE TAD
Notes:
• Your TAD connects directly to a
modular phone line jack. If your
phone line jack is not modular, you
can update it yourself, using jacks
and adapters available at your local
RadioShack store. Or, you can let
the phone company update it for
you.
• The USOC number of the jack to be
installed is RJ11C.

3. Plug the cord’s other end into a
modular phone line jack.
4. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s
barrel plug into the AC 9V jack on
the back of the TAD.
Caution: The supplied AC adapter
was designed specifically for your
TAD-798. Use only the supplied
adapter.
5. Plug the other end of the adapter
into a standard AC outlet.
When you first connect power, the TAD
announces “Please wait.” The message counter counts from 0 to 18. The
TAD beeps, and 0 appears in the message counter window.
Note: The TAD’s message counter usually shows the number of recorded messages. That number alternates with
other displays to tell you the status of
the TAD.
• A1 appears if you have not recorded an outgoing message 1.
1. Unplug the telephone’s modular
cord from the modular phone line
jack and plug it into the PHONE jack
on the back of the TAD.
2. Plug one end of the supplied modular cord into the LINE jack on the
back of the TAD.

• A2 appears if you have not recorded an outgoing message 2.
• Lo appears if the backup battery is
weak or missing.
43-798.fm Page 7 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:33 AM
INSTALLING A BACKUP
BATTERY
If the AC power fails or you unplug the
TAD, a 9V backup battery (not supplied)
saves the messages, time and day settings, and the CBT and remote operation security codes. 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.
2. Snap the battery’s contacts firmly to
the battery connector and place the
battery in the compartment.
3. Replace the cover and secure it
with the screw.
Replace the battery when Lo appears.
Cautions:
1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw on the battery compartment cover, then remove the
cover.
• Always remove an old or weak battery. Batteries can leak chemicals
that can destroy electronic parts.
• Dispose of the old battery promptly
and properly. Do not bury or burn it.
• To avoid losing stored information,
be sure the AC adapter is plugged
in and connected to the TAD before
you replace the battery.

SETTING THE DAY AND
TIME
When you set the TAD-798’s clock, the
TAD records the day and time each
memo and message is recorded.
Notes:
• To avoid losing the day and time
settings if AC power is lost, we recommend you install a backup battery before you set the day and time
(see “Installing a Backup Battery”
on Page 7).
• If you do not complete each step
within 8 seconds, the TAD sounds
four beeps and exits setup. Start
again at Step 1.
• To adjust the TAD’s volume, slide
VOLUME toward + or –.
2. To change the day, hold down REPEAT to move backward or SKIP to
move forward until the TAD announces the desired day.

43-798.fm Page 9 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:33 AM
SETTING THE NUMBER
OF RINGS
Set the ring select switch on the right
side of the TAD to 2, 4, 7, or TS to set
how long the TAD waits before it answers a call (2 rings, 4 rings, 7 rings, or
toll-saver).
If you plan to check your messages by
long distance, set the ring select switch
to TS (see “Toll-Saver” on Page 17).

43-798.fm Page 10 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:33 AM
BASIC OPERATION
RECORDING THE
OUTGOING MESSAGES
Before the TAD can answer calls and
record messages, you must record an
outgoing message (OGM). The TAD798 lets you record two separate messages, and it operates differently based
on the message you select (see “Using
the
Announce-Only
Feature”
on
Page 11).
• OGM 1. After playing your outgoing
message, the TAD lets callers
record a message.
• OGM 2 (announcement-only). The
TAD plays your outgoing message,
but does not let the caller record a
message.
Hint: Do not tell callers that you are out
of town or not home. Instead, say that
you cannot come to the phone right
now.
Follow these steps to record an outgoing message.
1. To record an outgoing message,
hold down OGM 1 or OGM 2 until the
TAD beeps and the timer starts
counting.
Note: As soon as the TAD beeps,
release OGM 1 (or OGM 2) quickly.
Otherwise, the TAD records a “pop”
sound at the beginning of the outgoing message.
2. Release OGM 1 (or OGM 2) and
speak your message from about 8
inches in front of the TAD.
3. When you finish recording, press
STOP. The TAD beeps and plays
back the outgoing message.
Notes:
• The maximum length for each outgoing message is 32 seconds. As
you record, the message counter
shows the recording time.
• If you plan to use the TAD’s announcement-only feature, OGM 2
should clearly state that the caller
cannot leave a message.
10
Listening to the Outgoing
Messages
To hear an outgoing message, press
OGM 1 or OGM 2. The TAD beeps, A1 or
A2 appears, and the outgoing message
plays.
43-798.fm Page 11 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:33 AM
If no outgoing message is recorded
when you press OGM 1 or OGM 2, the
TAD announces “You have no announcement one” (or “two”) and sounds
four beeps.
SETTING THE TAD TO
ANSWER CALLS
To set the TAD to answer or not answer
calls, press ANSWER. The TAD announces “Answer on” (or “off”) and
plays the outgoing message. If the ANSWER indicator is lit, the TAD is set to
answer calls.
Notes:
• You must record an outgoing message before you can set the TAD to
answer calls.
USING THE ANNOUNCEONLY FEATURE
When the announce-only feature is on,
the TAD-798 plays OGM 2 but does not
let callers leave a message. (You must
have recorded an OGM 2 message before you can use this feature.)
To set the TAD to announce-only, be
sure the TAD is set to answer calls, then
press OGM 2. The TAD says “Announce
only,” and plays the second outgoing
message. The number of recorded
messages and Ao appear alternately.
To turn off the announce-only feature,
press OGM 1. The TAD beeps, says
“Answer on,” and plays OGM 1.
• If you have set the TAD to not answer calls, you can use a remote
phone to set it to answer calls (see
“Using Remote Commands” on
Page 17).

Each incoming message can be up to
60 seconds long. At 55 seconds the
TAD beeps to notify the caller that time
will soon be up. At 60 seconds it sounds
one long and four short beeps, says
“Thank you for your call,” and hangs up.
Additionally, the TAD stops recording
and resets to answer the next call when:

• You pick up any phone on the same
line as the TAD.
If the TAD’s memory is full, FL and the
number of recorded messages alternately appear. It answers calls after 3
rings and plays the second outgoing
message (OGM 2). If no OGM 2 is recorded, the TAD says “Memory is full.
Thank you for your call.”
To adjust the TAD’s volume, slide VOLUME toward + or –.
Note: The maximum recording capacity
is 16 minutes or 59 recorded messages.

the TAD sounds four beeps when you
press DELETE.
43-798.fm Page 15 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:33 AM
SCREENING CALLS
To screen calls, let the TAD answer,
then listen to the caller’s message
through the TAD’s speaker. To adjust
the TAD’s volume, slide VOLUME toward + or –.
When a caller enters the CBT code during the outgoing message, the TAD
alerts you with a series of loud beeps for
35 seconds. To answer the call, pick up
the handset. If you do not answer, the
caller can leave a message after the
outgoing message plays.
Changing the CBT Code
If you do not want to take the call, simply let the TAD finish recording the caller’s message.
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 STOP.
USING CALL
BREAKTHROUGH
If you screen your calls but want to
know when calls come in from certain
people, give them your call breakthrough (CBT) code (preset to 648).

any touch-tone phone, or from a rotary
phone using a pocket tone-dialer (available at your local RadioShack store).
TOLL-SAVER
If the ring select switch is set to TS (tollsaver), the TAD-798 answers after two
rings if you have new messages. If
there are no new messages, the TAD
answers after four rings. 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 9.

TROUBLESHOOTING
We do not expect you to have any problems with your TAD-798, but if you do,
try these suggestions.
Problem
Remedy
The incoming message is incomplete.
Be sure the memory is not full.
The incoming message is unclear.
Be sure VOLUME is set to the desired
sound level.
The TAD does not answer after
two, four, or seven rings.
Be sure the TAD is set to answer calls.
Lo appears on the display.
The backup battery is weak. Replace the
battery (see “Installing a Backup Battery”
on Page 7).

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack TAD-798 Digital Telephone Answering System 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,
damage batteries, 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-798 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 until you have resolved the problem.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
In the unlikely event that your TAD
causes problems on the phone line, the
phone company can temporarily disconnect your service. If this happens, the
phone company attempts to notify you
in advance. If advance notice is not
practical, the phone company notifies
you as soon as possible and advises
you of your right to file a complaint with
the FCC.
Also, the phone company can make
changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the
operation of your TAD. The phone company notifies you of these changes in
advance, so you can take steps to prevent interruption of your phone service.
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.
