Safety Instructions
READ BEFORE OPERATING EQUIPMENT – SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

To prevent damage to your radio or possible injury to you or others, read these safety precautions and instructions entirely before applying power to your radio. Keep these precautions and instructions where all who use this radio will
read them.
1) COMMON CARE 
Check the radio, AC adapter, batteries and any accessories regularly. Do not use the radio if there is any sign of
damage. Only operate in accordance with the instructions in this manual.
2) PROPER BATTERY HANDLING 
Never mix different type of batteries or use old batteries with new. This may cause the batteries to leak or explode.
Dead batteries are prone to leakage. Remove the batteries when no charge remains. Orientate the batteries correctly in the unit according to the diagram. Do not store batteries with metal objects like paper clips. We recommend you remove batteries from the radio if you are not going to use the radio for one month or more.
3) DISCONNECT THE RADIO IN CASE OF MALFUNCTION 
If you smell or notice smoke, disconnect the AC adapter and remove the batteries immediately taking care to avoid
burns. Contact C. Crane Company Inc. or their representative for inspection and service before any future operation. Only use the AC adapter supplied with the unit and replace it if wires become frayed or exposed.
4) KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN 
Use only on a stable, level surface. Dropping the radio can cause damage or injury. Keep the AC Adapter cord in a
position so someone cannot trip and cause the radio to fall.
5) KEEP AWAY FROM WATER AND MOISTURE 
Keep the radio dry. Liquids and moisture can damage the radio. If a liquid leaks into the radio do not operate and
seek a qualified service shop. To clean radio, remove the power adapter and use a damp cloth on the exterior only.
6) KEEP AWAY FROM EXTREME TEMPERATURES 
Extreme temperatures can damage the radio. Do not leave or use the radio where it can be subjected to high or
very cold temperatures.
7) DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SERVICE RADIO 
Refer all service work to a qualified service shop when the radio does not appear to operate normally, exhibits a
change in performance or the radio has received damage. Never open the radio as this may expose you to dangerous voltages and this will void all warranties.
8) OUTSIDE ANTENNAS OR CABLES 
