during electrical storms. Certain kinds of electrical equipment, such as light dimmers, fluorescent bulbs, motors, fans, etc., also generate pulse noise. Because radio frequencies are susceptible to this, you may on occasion hear pulse noise through the speaker, this is usually only a
minor annoyance and should not be interpreted as a defect of the unit.

environment. This equipment should be installed and operated with a minimum distance of 20
centimeters between radiator and your body.
