FEATURES
Your TAD-1006 Digital Answering
System Telephone with Time/Day
Stamp is a sophisticated, fully digital
message center that combines a telephone and an answering machine in
one convenient package.
Fully digital means the TAD-1006
stores all messages on a computer
chip. This gives you advanced capabilities over tape-based answering
machines. For example, you can save
individual messages while the rest are
deleted.
TAD
Day/Time Stamp — records the day
and time each message was recorded.
—
Digitally-Synthesized
Voice
guides you through operation of the
TAD-1006.
Built-In Announcements — let you
immediately begin using the TAD1006 to answer calls and record messages.
And, because your TAD-1006 is fully
digital, there are no tape mechanisms
to wear out and no tapes to bother
with.
Announcement-Only — lets you set
the TAD-1006 to play a message for
the caller, then automatically hang up
without letting the caller leave a message.
TELEPHONE
Message Protection — prevents you
from accidentally deleting a message
while it plays the first time.
13-Number Memory Dialing — lets
you store up to 13 phone numbers in
memory for easy dialing — three priority (one-touch) numbers and ten standard numbers.
Redial — lets you quickly dial the last
number dialed.
Touch Tone (DTMF) or Pulse Dialing — lets you use the phone with either type of dialing.
Hearing Aid Compatible — lets you
use this phone with hearing aids that
have a T (telephone) switch.
Data Compression — automatically
compresses periods of silence to allow up to 16 minutes of message storage.
Adjustable Number of Rings — lets
you set the TAD-1006 to answer after
anywhere from one to nine rings.
Call Screening — lets you listen as a
caller leaves a message so you can
decide whether or not to answer the
call.

READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
We have designed your system to
conform to federal regulations, and
you can connect it to most telephone
lines. However, each device that you
connect to the phone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power
draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is
shown on the bottom of your system.
If you are using more than one device
on the line, add up all the RENs. If the
total is more than five, your phone
might not ring or your system might
not answer. In rural areas, a total REN
of three might impair ringer operation.
If ringer operation is impaired, remove
one of the devices from the line.
FCC STATEMENT
Your system 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 appear on the bottom
of your system.
Note: You must not connect your
system to:
• Coin-operated systems
• Party-line systems
• Most electronic key phone systems
This device compiles with Part 15 of
FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions:
• This device may not cause harmful interference.
• This device must accept any interference received, including interference
that
may
cause
undesirable operation.

TONE-PULSE
Switch” on Page 12).
SELECTING A
LOCATION
Select a location for the TAD-1006
that is near a modular phone jack and
an AC outlet, and out of the way of
normal activities. You can place the
TAD-1006 on a flat surface (such as a
desktop or counter-top), mount it on a
modular jack wall plate, or mount it directly on the wall.
company update the wiring for
you.
• The phone company will charge
you for the installation of necessary jacks.
• The USOC number of the jack to
be installed is RJ11C for a baseboard jack or RJ11W for a wallplate jack.
CONNECTING THE AC
ADAPTER
Caution: You must use a Class II AC
adapter that supplies 12 volts of power, delivers at least 200 milliamps, and
has a plug that properly fits the TAD1006’s 12V DC jack with its center tip
set to negative. The supplied adapter
meets these specifications. Using an
adapter that does not meet these
specifications could damage the
adapter and the TAD-1006.

Answering Calls
After the TAD answers a call, the outgoing announcement plays, then the
TAD sounds a beep and begins recording.
After the call is over (when the caller
hangs up or the maximum message
length of 1 minute is reached), the
TAD hangs up and resets to answer

illustration
Notes:
• Many local phone companies use
calling party control (CPC) to signal that the caller has hung up.
Your TAD recognizes a CPC signal and releases the line. If the
TAD records phone company
messages or dial tones, your local
phone company probably does
not use CPC.
• If the TAD reaches 100 percent
full while a caller is leaving a message, the TAD hangs up. When
the next call comes in, the TAD
plays the memory full announcement.
• If the caller hangs up or is silent
for more than 7 seconds after
speaking for less than 2 seconds,
or if the incoming message is less
than 2 seconds in length, the TAD
hangs up and resets to answer
the next call, but does not record
a message.

• If the TAD answers when the
memory is full, it plays the memory full announcement, waits 7
seconds for any remote operation
commands (see “Using Remote
Commands” on Page 27), then
hangs up. The TAD cannot record
additional messages until you
delete some of the old ones (see
“Deleting Messages” on Page 25).

REMOTE TAD OPERATION
While you are away from your home
or office, you can use a touch-tone
phone or a pulse (rotary) phone with a
pocket tone dialer to enter your remote operation security code and do
any of the following:
• Set the TAD to answer calls
• Listen to your messages
• Record a new announcement
• Delete messages
• Monitor the room where the TAD
is located
USING THE TOLL-SAVER
If the TAD is set to answer in three
rings or more and there are new messages (ones you have not played), the
TAD answers two rings sooner than
you set. For example, if you set it to
answer in five rings and there are new
messages, it will answer after three
rings.
If there are no new messages (or if
you set the TAD to answer in two rings
or less), it answers according to the
number of rings you set. This gives
you time to hang up before the TAD
answers and avoid unnecessary longdistance charges.
To use the toll-saver, be sure the TAD
is set to answer in three rings or more
(see “Setting the Number of Rings” on
Page 17).
26
CHANGING THE
REMOTE CODE
To use your TAD-1006 from a remote
telephone, you must first enter a 3digit remote operation security code.
The security code for your TAD-1006
is preset to 028.
You can either use the preset code, or
follow these steps to change it while
you are at the TAD.
Notes:
• If you forget your remote code
after setting it, follow these steps
again to set a new code.
• In Steps 2 and 3, you must enter
your selection within 7 seconds.
Otherwise, the TAD beeps three
times then exits the programming
mode. If this happens, start over
again at Step 1.
1. Press DELETE/PROG. The TAD
beeps once.
2. Press 2/REMOTE. The TAD beeps
once.
illustration
43-768.fm Page 27 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:49 PM
3. Enter the new 3-digit remote operation security code. The TAD
beeps once after you press each
button, then it beeps twice to indicate the new code has been
stored in memory.
USING REMOTE
COMMANDS
Follow these steps to operate the TAD
from a remote touch-tone phone.
1. Dial your phone number.
REMOTE ANSWER-ON
If the TAD-1006 is connected to AC
power, you can use any remote phone
to turn the TAD on and set it to answer
calls and record messages.
To remotely set the TAD to answer
calls, dial your phone number and wait
about 12 rings until the TAD answers.
Then hang up the phone or proceed
with remote operation beginning with
Step 2 under “Using Remote Commands.”
After you hang up, the TAD answers
calls and records incoming messages.
Note: When the TAD is set
for announcement-only, it answers
calls but does not record messages.
2. When the outgoing announcement begins, press
. The
announcement stops.
3. Enter the 3-digit remote operation
security code. The TAD sounds
three long beeps then announces:
“Press one to play back memos.
Press two to play back messages.
Press three to monitor the room.
Press four to record a new outgoing message. Press six to skip
back one message. Press seven
to repeat the message. Press
eight to erase messages. Press
nine to skip the message. Press
star ( ) to stop playback or
record.”
Note: If no beeps sound, re-enter
the code. If you enter the correct
code, but the TAD does not
accept it, the code might have
reset to the default (028) because
of low battery power. Try entering
028 as the security code. If this
works, replace the TAD-1006’s
backup battery and reset the
remote operation security code as
soon as you return to the TAD1006’s location (see “Setting the
Day and Time” on Page 16 and
“Changing the Remote Code” on
Page 26).
27
43-768.fm Page 28 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:49 PM
4. Within 7 seconds, enter your
selection (see “List of Remote
Commands” on Page 29).
Notes:
• If you do not press a button
within 7 seconds, the TAD
hangs up.
• After you enter a remote command, the TAD is preset to
beep twice after about 160 seconds then automatically hang
up after about 180 seconds if
you do not enter another command.
If you are listening to your messages and the TAD beeps twice
to warn you that it is about to
hang up, you can press 7 to
repeat the current message
and reset the TAD’s time cycle.
• To delete a message the first
time you hear it, you must press
8 immediately after the caller’s
message ends (while the day/
time stamp plays) but before
the TAD beeps to start the next
message or function. However,
if you are repeating a message,
you can press 8 at any time
before the message ends.
• If your telephone line has CPC
service and you hang up while
the TAD is playing back the
messages, it stops playback
immediately and resets to
answer the next call.
28
• If you do not have CPC service
and you hang up while the TAD
is playing back the messages,
the TAD might not recognize
that you hung up. If someone
calls while the TAD continues to
play the message, the caller
hears a busy signal. We recommend that you play all the messages or skip forward through
the messages using remote
commands until the TAD beeps
once before you hang up. This
will ensure that you hear all
your messages.
5. After completing the selected
function, the TAD beeps once
then plays the next recorded message (if you are playing back messages) or begins re-announcing
the list of selections. Enter a new
command or hang up the phone.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your Radio Shack TAD-1006 Digital Answering System Telephone with Time/Day
Stamp is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for the TAD-1006 so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the TAD-1006 dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids
might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Handle the TAD-1006 gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage
circuit boards and can cause the TAD-1006 to work improperly.
Use and store the TAD-1006 only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the TAD-1006 away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
CLEANER
Wipe the TAD-1006 with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents.
Modifying or tampering with the TAD-1006’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty. If your TAD-1006 is not performing as it
should, take it to your local Radio Shack store for assistance. If the trouble is affecting the phone line, the phone company might ask you to disconnect your TAD-1006
until you have resolved the problem.
33
43-768.fm Page 34 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:49 PM
THE FCC WANTS YOU
TO KNOW
In the unlikely event that your TAD1006 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-1006. The
phone company notifies you of these
changes in advance, so you can take
steps to prevent interruption of your
phone service.
34
LIGHTNING
Your TAD-1006 has built-in protection
circuits to reduce the risk of damage
from surges in phone and power line
current. These protection circuits meet
or exceed FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the phone line or
power lines can damage your TAD1006.
Lightning damage is not common.
Nevertheless, if you live in an area
that has severe electrical storms, we
suggest that you unplug your TAD1006 during storms to reduce the possibility of damage.
