FCC REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Your GE telephone equipment is registered with the Federal Communications Commission and is in compliance
with parts 15 and 68, FCC Rules and Regulations.
1 Notification to the Local Telephone Company
On the bottom of this equipment is a label indicating, among other information, the FCC Registration
number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for the equipment. You must, upon request, provide this
information to your telephone company.
The REN is useful in determining the number of devices you may connect to your telephone line and still
have all of these devices ring when your telephone number is called. In most (but not all) areas, the sum of
the RENs of all devices connected to one line should not exceed 5. To be certain of the number of devices you
may connect to your line as determined by the REN, you should contact your local telephone company.
Notes
• This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company.
• Party lines are subject to state tariffs, and therefore, you may not be able to use your own telephone
equipment if you are on a party line. Check with your local telephone company.
• Notice must be given to the telephone company upon permanent disconnection of your telephone from your
line.
2 Rights of the Telephone Company
Should your equipment cause trouble on your line which may harm the telephone network, the telephone
company shall, where practicable, notify you that temporary discontinuance of service may be required.
Where prior notice is not practicable and the circumstances warrant such action, the telephone company
may temporarily discontinue service immediately. In case of such temporary discontinuance, the telephone
company must: (1) promptly notify you of such temporary discontinuance; (2) afford you the opportunity to
correct the situation; and (3) inform you of your right to bring a complaint to the Commission pursuant to
procedures set forth in Subpart E of Part 68, FCC Rules and Regulations.
The telephone company may make changes in its communications facilities, equipment, operations of procedures
where such action is required in the operation of its business and not inconsistent with FCC Rules and Regulations.
If these changes are expected to affect the use or performance of your telephone equipment, the telephone
company must give you adequate notice, in writing, to allow you to maintain uninterrupted service.
INTERFERENCE INFORMATION
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This
device may not cause harmful interference; and (2) This device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to
Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is
no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of
the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for radio or television that is “receiving” the
interference).
• Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the telecommunications equipment and receiving
antenna.
• Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiving antenna is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult your dealer or an experienced radio/
television technician for additional suggestions. Also, the Federal Communications Commission has
prepared a helpful booklet, “How To Identify and Resolve Radio/TV Interference Problems.” This booklet is
available from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. Please specify stock number
004-000-00345-4 when ordering copies.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN
MODULAR JACK REQUIREMENTS
You need an RJ11(CA11A) type modular jack, which is
the most common type of phone jack and might look
like the one pictured here. If you don’t have a modular
jack, call your local phone company to find out how to
get one installed.

POWERING UP
“NO WORRY” BATTERY BACKUP
This clock radio is equipped with a
memory holding system that can be
powered with a customer-installed
9-volt alkaline battery (not included).
When power is interrupted, or AC
line cord is unplugged, the battery
will power the clock radio to keep
track of time and alarm settings
programmed into memory. When
on battery power, the digital display
will not light; however, should
WAKE time occur during the power
interruption, the radio will operate
or the alarm will sound if remaining
battery power is adequate. Normal
operation will resume after AC
power is restored.
Install battery as follows:
1. Open the battery compartment
door (located on the back of the
radio) by applying thumb pressure to area indicated on battery
door and pushing out.
2. Connect a 9-volt battery.
3. Insert battery in compartment
and replace compartment door.
NOTE: Alkaline (NEDA 1604A)
batteries are recommended. Carbonzinc (NEDA 1604) batteries may be
used but memory holding time will be
substantially reduced. Memory holding
time for a fresh alkaline battery is
approximately 8 hours (if Wake System
is not activated), which should take care
of short, nuisance-type AC power
failures. To preserve battery life, the
radio should remain plugged into an
AC outlet. As the battery gets older, its
voltage will drop and memory may be
lost. Be sure to replace the battery
periodically. Battery is not included
with this clock radio.
5
INSTALLATION
1. Plug the telephone cord into the
modular wall jack.
2. Connect the handset to the base
unit.
3. Set the PULSE/TONE switch (located
on the handset) toTONE if you have
touch-tone service, or to PULSE if
you have rotary dial service.
4. Plug the power cord into any
120V AC wall outlet.
POWER FAILURE INDICATOR
If AC power is interrupted (disconnected) for a short period both time
and alarm settings will change unless
optional battery is installed. After AC
power is restored (reconnected) the
digital display will blink to indicate that
power was interrupted and you must
readjust the time and alarm settings. To
stop display from blinking, press the
HOUR or MIN button.
MEMO LOG
For your convenience a memo log
located beneath the handset on the base
unit can be used to write down emergency or personal phone numbers.

BUILT-IN AFC
The Built-In Automatic Frequency
Control (AFC) works only on FM. It
helps keep the radio locked in on
the FM station to which it is tuned.
When tuning in FM stations, you
may notice that often the station
you desire can be heard on two or
three nearby points on the dial.
Always tune carefully to the loudest
and clearest point.
ANTENNAS
AM Antenna - A built-in ferrite rod
antenna eliminates the need for an
outside antenna for AM reception.
Rotating the unit slightly may
improve reception of distant AM
stations.
11
FM Antenna - The power cord acts
as your FM antenna. The power
cord picks up moderate to strong
stations and eliminates the need for
an external antenna in most strong
signal areas. Be sure the power
cord is stretched out to its full
length. Do not coil or bunch the
cord together. Changing position of
the power cord may improve
reception.
