READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
Each device that you connect to the
phone line draws power from the phone
line. We refer to this power draw as the
device’s ringer equivalence number, or
REN. The REN is shown on the bottom
of the base.
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, your
phones might not ring. In rural areas, a
total REN of three might impair ringer
operation. If ringer operation is impaired,
remove a device from the line.
FCC STATEMENT
This telephone complies with Part 68 of
FCC Rules. You must, upon request,
provide the FCC Registration Number
and the REN to your phone company.
These numbers are shown on the bottom of the base.
Note: You must not connect your phone
to any of the following:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key phone systems

PREPARATION
INSTALLING BATTERIES
Your telephone uses two AAA batteries
(not supplied) for power to retain the
numbers you store in memory. For the
best performance and longest life, we
recommend alkaline batteries, such as
Cat. No. 23-555.
2. Put the batteries into the compartment as indicated by the polarity
symbols (+ and –) marked inside.
Cautions:
• Always use fresh batteries of the
required size and recommended
type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries,
different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or
rechargeable batteries of different
capacities.
1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to loosen
the screw in the battery compartment cover on the bottom of the
telephone, then lift open the cover.
3. Close the cover and tighten the
screw.
4. Be sure the NORM/STORE BATT
TEST switch on the back of the
phone is set to NORM (see “Testing/
Replacing the Batteries”).
Testing/Replacing the Batteries
To test the batteries’ strength at any
time, temporarily slide NORM/STORE
BATT TEST (on the back of the telephone) to STORE BATT TEST.
If the BATT TEST indicator does not
light or is dim, replace the batteries.
5
43-637.fm Page 6 Friday, August 13, 1999 10:45 AM
To prevent the loss of stored numbers
when the batteries are removed, replace
the batteries within 5 minutes.
Placing the Phone on a
Desk Top
Set NORM/STORE BATT TEST back to
NORM.
SELECTING A LOCATION
You can place the phone on a desk top
or table, or mount it on a telephone wall
plate or directly on the wall. Select a location that is:
Plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into the TEL LINE jack on the
back of the phone. Then plug the other
end into a modular phone line jack.
• Near a telephone line jack
• Out of the way of normal activities
• Near an AC outlet ( only if you use
an optional AC adapter; see “Connecting an Optional AC Adapter” on
Page 8)
Notes:
• Your telephone connects directly to
a modular telephone line jack. If
your phone line jack is not a modular jack, you can update 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 (RJ11W if you
want to mount it on a wall plate).
6
Mounting the Phone on a Wall
You can mount your telephone on a wall
plate, or you can mount it directly on the
wall using two screws (not supplied) with
heads that fit into the keyhole slots on
the bottom of the telephone.
Note: If you are mounting the phone directly on the wall, drill two holes 3 15/16
inches (100 mm) apart. Thread the two
screws into the wall, letting the heads
extend about 1/8 inch (3 mm).

1. Press in on the side of the bracket
nearest the DESK label and lift the
bracket. Rotate the bracket 180°
and insert it into the WALL slots,
then push it upward to secure it.
3. Lift out the handset guide, rotate it
180°, then snap it back into place so
it holds the handset.
Handset
Guide
2. Plug one end of the supplied short
modular cord into the TEL LINE jack
on the back of the phone and plug
the other end into a modular phone
line jack. Then align the base’s keyhole slots with the wall plate studs
(or screws) and slide the base
downward to secure it.
Note: The handset holder above the
handset cradle lets you place the
handset on the holder without disconnecting the call.
Handset
Holder
CONNECTING THE
HANDSET
Plug one end of the coiled cord into the
modular jack on the handset. Then connect the other end to the jack on the side
of the telephone base.
7
43-637.fm Page 8 Friday, August 13, 1999 10:45 AM
You might prefer a longer cord for the
handset. Your local RadioShack store
has a wide selection of telephone accessories, including longer coiled handset
cords.
1. Plug the adapter’s barrel plug into
the DC 6V jack on the back of the
telephone.
CONNECTING AN
OPTIONAL AC ADAPTER
Your telephone operates from telephone
line power. In some areas, however, the
telephone line might not provide enough
power to operate all of your telephone’s
features. If the speakerphone’s volume
is too low, even with the volume control
set to its highest setting, or if the speakerphone does not work, connect an AC
adapter (RadioShack Cat. No. 2731454).
2. Route the adapter cable through the
strain relief slot on the bottom of the
telephone.
Strain Relief Slot
Cautions:
• The recommended adapter supplies
6 volts DC, delivers at least 150 milliamps, and has a barrel plug which
properly fits the phone’s DC 6V jack.
Using an adapter that does not meet
these specifications might damage
the phone or the adapter.
• To prevent damage to the adapter
and the telephone, always plug the
adapter into the telephone before
you plug it into the AC outlet. Always
unplug the AC adapter from the AC
outlet first, then unplug the barrel
plug from the phone.
8
3. Plug the other end of the adapter into a standard AC outlet.
43-637.fm Page 9 Friday, August 13, 1999 10:45 AM
SETTING THE DIALING
MODE
SETTING THE RINGER
SWITCH
Set MODE on the back of the base for
the type of service you have (tone or
pulse). If you are not sure which type
you have, do this test.
Set RINGER on the back of the telephone to select the desired ringer volume:
1. Set MODE to TONE .
HI — Normal ringer volume.
LO — Reduced ringer volume.
OFF — The telephone does not ring
Note: With the phone’s ringer off, you
can still make calls using the ET-148.
You can also receive calls if you hear another telephone on the same line ringing.
2. Lift the handset and listen for a dial
tone.
3. Press any number other than 0.
Note: If your phone system requires
that you dial an access code (9, for
example) before you dial an outside
number, do not press the access
code either.
4. If the dial tone stops, you have
touch-tone service. Leave MODE set
to TONE .
If the dial tone continues, you have
pulse service. Set MODE to PULSE.

43-637.fm Page 10 Friday, August 13, 1999 10:45 AM
OPERATION
Make and receive calls with this phone
as you would with any other phone. This
section describes some of the phone’s
special features.
USING THE
SPEAKERPHONE
To make or receive a call on the speakerphone, leave the handset in the cradle
and press SPEAKER.
If you decide to change from the speakerphone to the handset during redialing
or memory dialing, let the phone finish
dialing first. Then lift the handset and
press SPEAKER.
USING PRIVACY
To talk to someone else in the room without the person on the other end of the
phone line hearing your conversation,
press PRIVACY during the call. The PRIVACY indicator lights.
Slide VOLUME on the right side of the
phone’s base to adjust the speakerphone’s volume.
Press PRIVACY again to resume your
phone conversation. The indicator light
turns off.
To disconnect a call, press SPEAKER.
Switching Between the
Handset and Speakerphone
To switch to the speakerphone while
you are using the handset, press
SPEAKER and return the handset to the
cradle.
To switch to the handset while you are
using the speakerphone, lift the handset
then press SPEAKER.
10
USING REDIAL
PAUSE/REDIAL lets you quickly dial the
last number dialed. Lift the handset (or
press SPEAKER), then simply press
PAUSE/REDIAL.
When you press PAUSE/REDIAL, the
telephone redials in the mode (tone or
pulse) in which you originally dialed the
number.
43-637.fm Page 11 Friday, August 13, 1999 10:45 AM
Notes:
• The redial memory holds up to 32
digits in the pulse mode and 31
digits in the tone mode. This
means you can redial longdistance as well as local numbers.
• The redial memory also holds pause
entries (see “Using Pause”).
• The redial memory does not store a
flash entry or any digits you press
after FLASH (see “Using Flash”).
USING PAUSE
In some telephone systems, you must
dial an access code (9, for example) and
wait for a second dial tone before you
can dial an outside number. You can
store the access code with the phone
number. However, you should also store
a pause after the access code to allow
the outside line time to connect.
To enter a 2-second pause, press
PAUSE/REDIAL at the desired location.
For a longer pause, press PAUSE/REDIAL additional times.
USING FLASH
Press FLASH again to return to the first
call.
Note: If you do not have any special
phone services, pressing FLASH might
disconnect the current call.
USING TONE SERVICES
ON A PULSE LINE
Some computer services, such as alternate long-distance and bank-by-phone,
require tone signals. If you have pulse
service, you can still use these special
tone services by following these steps.
1. Be sure MODE is set to PULSE.
2. Dial the service’s main number.
3. When the special service answers,
set MODE to TONE . Any additional
numbers you dial are sent as tone
signals.
4. After you complete the call, hang up
the handset (or press SPEAKER)
and return MODE to PULSE.
Note: You cannot change from the
tone mode to the pulse mode during
a call. To make this change, you
must hang up the handset (or press
SPEAKER) then set MODE to PULSE.
FLASH performs the electronic equivalent of a switchhook operation for special services, such as Call Waiting or
transferring a call to another line in an
office network.
For example, if you have call waiting,
press FLASH to answer an incoming call
without disconnecting the current call.
11
43-637.fm Page 12 Friday, August 13, 1999 10:45 AM
MEMORY DIALING
You can store up to 20 numbers in
memory (15 digits each in the tone
mode, 16 in the pulse mode), then dial a
stored number by pressing a memory
button.
2. Set NORM/STORE BATT TEST to
STORE BATT TEST. The BATT TEST
indicator lights.
Note: Entering a pause counts as one
digit in memory.
Storing a Number in Memory
Note: Leave the handset in its cradle
when storing a number.
Important:
• If you attempt to store a number
while the BATT TEST indicator is
not lit, all stored numbers are
deleted.
3. Enter the number and any pause
entries.
4. Press the memory button for where
you want to store the number and
write the person’s or company’s
name on the supplied Memory Index
Card. (Use a pencil in case you
want to change the number later.).
• If BATT TEST does not light or is
dim, replace the batteries. See
“Testing/Replacing the Batteries” on
Page 5.
• Do not attempt to store a telephone
number with no batteries or weak
batteries.
1. Be sure MODE is set for the type of
service you have.
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for each number you want to store.
5. When you finish storing numbers,
return NORM/STORE BATT TEST to
NORM.
12
43-637.fm Page 13 Friday, August 13, 1999 10:45 AM
Notes:
• If the telephone rings while you are
storing numbers, you can answer
the call by lifting the handset or
pressing SPEAKER. If you answer a
call before pressing the memory
button for the number you were storing, you must start again from Step
3 after the phone call.
• If you make a mistake while storing
a number, return NORM/STORE
BATT TEST to NORM then reset it to
STORE BATT TEST. Then re-enter
the number. Or, lift the handset then
return it to the telephone base and
re-enter the number.
You cannot delete a stored number, but
you can store a new number in its place.
Dialing a Memory Number
To dial a number stored in memory, lift
the handset or press SPEAKER. When
you hear a dial tone, press the memory
button for the number you want to dial.
Chain-Dialing Memory
Numbers
For quick recall of numbers for special
services (such as alternate long distance
or bank by phone), store each group of
numbers in its own memory location.
Dial the service’s main number first.
Then, at the appropriate place in the call,
press the memory button where the additional information is stored.
Note: We recommend you do not store
private or secure numbers, such as
PINs.
Testing Stored Emergency
Numbers
If you store an emergency service’s
number (police department, fire department, ambulance) and you choose to
test the stored number, make the test
call during the late evening or early
morning hours to avoid peak demand periods. Also, remain on the line to explain
the reason for your call.

43-637.fm Page 14 Friday, August 13, 1999 10:45 AM
TROUBLESHOOTING
We do not expect you to have any problems with your phone, but if you do, the following suggestions might help.
Problem
The phone does not work or
works poorly.
Suggestion
Be sure MODE is set properly.
Ensure the phone line is properly connected.
If you are using an optional AC adapter, ensure
it is properly connected. See “Connecting an
Optional AC Adapter” on Page 8.
Memory does not hold programmed numbers.
Replace the batteries (see “Testing/Replacing
the Batteries” on Page 5).
The party on the phone cannot hear you, but you can hear
them.
Check the PRIVACY indicator. If the light is on,
press PRIVACY so it is off.
The telephone’s volume level
drops or it begins to make
strange sounds.
Check to see if other phones on the same line
have been picked up. This phone might not
operate when other phones are active on the
same line (especially in areas with low telephone voltage). Hang up the other phones.
If you are using an optional AC adapter, ensure
it is properly connected. See “Connecting an
Optional AC Adapter” on Page 8.
If you still have problems, disconnect the phone. If other phones on the same line work
properly, the fault is in this phone or its installation. If you cannot find the problem, take
your phone to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
14
43-637.fm Page 15 Friday, August 13, 1999 10:45 AM
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack ET-148 20-Number Memory Speakerphone with Privacy is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you
care for your phone so you can enjoy it for years.
• Keep the phone dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain
minerals that corrode electronic circuits.
• Use and store the phone only in normal temperature environments. High temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, and distort or melt plastic parts.
• Handle the phone gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards
and cases and can cause the phone to work improperly.
• Keep the phone away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of
parts.
• Wipe the phone with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use
harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean your phone.
Modifying or tampering with the telephone’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate your telephone’s warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your telephone is not performing as it should, take it to your local
RadioShack store for assistance. If the trouble is harming the phone lines, the telephone company might ask you to disconnect your phone until you have resolved the
problem.
THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW
In the unlikely event that your phone causes problems on the phone line, the phone
company can temporarily discontinue 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 this telephone. The telephone company
notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.
15
43-637.fm Page 16 Friday, August 13, 1999 10:45 AM
LIGHTNING
Your telephone has built-in protection circuits to reduce the risk of damage from surges in telephone line and power line current. These protection circuits meet or exceed
the FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the telephone or power lines can
damage your telephone.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has frequent electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug your telephone during storms to
reduce the possibility of damage.
