PREPARATION FOR USE
POWER SOURCES
This personal stereo radio with AM/FM/TV and Weather Band digital tuner is
designed to operate on one alkaline “AAA” battery, not included. Attempting to
operate this unit on any other power source may cause damage to the unit and
such damage is not covered by your warranty.
INSTALLING THE BATTERY
The battery compartment is located on the back-side of the radio cabinet.
1.) Press down on the
mark on the battery cover and slide the cover in the
direction of the arrow.
2.) Insert one fresh “AAA” alkaline battery in the battery compartment. Be sure to
follow the polarity making in the battery compartment. If the battery is inserted
incorrectly the unit will not work.
3.) Replace the battery compartment cover.
WHEN TO CHANGE THE BATTERY
When the Battery Indicator
begins to “empty” the batteries are getting weak.
When the indicator starts flashing in the display the battery is almost exhausted
and should be changed as soon as possible. Do not leave a weak or exhausted
battery in the radio as it will eventually leak and cause corrosion inside the battery
compartment.

wet after jogging in the rain, wipe away any excess moisture with a soft
dry towel before putting the radio away.

LISTENING TO RADIO
Information
This radio receives normal AM and FM broadcasts plus the TV sound from VHF
TV stations 2 through 13. In addition it receives all 7 NOAA weather frequencies
so you can listen to continuous National Weather Service broadcasts.
Please note that the weather channels are identified as “1 ch” through “7 ch”.
• Most USA residents will find their local weather broadcast on channels 1, 2, or 3.
• Channels 4 through 7 are newer stations used in some areas. If you live in a
densely populated area you may be able to receive the weather broadcasts on
more than one channel. If so, choose the channel with the strongest reception
since that is likely to be the closest station to your location.
Keep in mind that the weather station transmitters operate at much lower power
than commercial radio stations. Normally the volume of the weather stations will
be lower and you may have to raise the volume control to hear these stations
clearly. If you raise the volume control to hear the weather station be sure to reduce
the volume control before switching back to AM/FM or TV bands, because the
difference can be substantial.
BASS BOOST Button
Press the BASS BOOST button for added Bass response. The BASS indicator
appears in the display. Press again to cancel Bass Boost and resume normal
sound. The BASS indicator disappears.
