Preparation for Use
Preparation for Use
1. Remove the radio and all packing materials from the carton. You should
save all the packing materials if the unit ever needs to be returned for
service. If you do not wish to save the materials, please dispose of
them properly.
2. Place the unit on a stable, level surface, close to an AC outlet, out of
direct sunlight, and away from sources of excess dust, dirt, heat, water,
moisture, vibration and strong magnetic fields.
DC Operation
• This unit can operate on both AC and DC power. An AC adapter was
included with this unit. For further instructions on operating this unit
using AC power, see AC Operation.
• 3 “AA” alkaline batteries can operate the unit without AC power. They
will also continue running the unit if it is operating on AC power and
there is a power failure. For best results, you should always have fresh
“AA” alkaline batteries installed in this unit.
• This unit comes with a CR-2032 lithium battery already installed. The
CR-2032 is to maintain the time and alarm settings.
3 “AA” Main Battery Installation
1. Gently turn the unit over and remove the battery compartment door.
2. Install 3 “AA” alkaline batteries, while making sure that the + and – ends
match up with those inside the battery compartment.
3. Close the battery compartment door and turn the unit right side up.
Note: This unit was designed to operate on alkaline batteries only.
You must use alkaline batteries with this unit. When the
batteries are getting weak the Battery Low Icon ( ) will flash on
the right side of the display.
LOW
Lithium Battery Backup Installation
1. Gently turn the unit over and open the battery compartment door. If
necessary, remove the 3 “AA” batteries to get to the lithium battery
door.
2. Loosen the screw and remove the lithium battery door.
3. Replace the CR-2032 lithium battery, while making sure that the + and
– ends match up with the markings inside the battery compartment.
4. Place the door back on and tighten the screw, then reinstall the 3 “AA”
batteries and close the battery compartment door.
Note: This unit comes equipped with a CR-2032 lithium battery used for
battery backup purposes only. When the lithium battery is getting
weak the Lithium Battery Low Icon ( LOW ) will flash on the left side
of the display.
Battery Backup System
If the unit is being operated through AC power and there is a power
interruption, the 3 “AA” batteries will takeover and run the unit. All settings,
alarms, and instant weather will operate.
If the unit is operating through DC power (3 “AA” batteries) and there is a
power interruption, then the lithium battery (CR-2032) will maintain the time
and alarm time settings and operate the sure alarm. The sure alarm will
default all alarms to buzzer and turn on for 2 minutes.
All settings will be lost if there is a power failure and no batteries are installed.
AC Adapter Operation
• Plug the supplied AC adapter into the
DC Jack on the back of the
unit, then plug the cord into an outlet.
• If you are using a different AC adapter then the one supplied, make
sure that it is a 6V, 300mA Positive Center AC adapter.
Setting the Clock Time and Calendar
Important
• While setting the time or calendar, if you do not press the appropriate
buttons (as explained below) within approximately 8 seconds the display
will stop flashing. If this happens you must follow the steps again from

button the minutes will begin at a moderate pace, then get faster. This
will assist you in setting the time both fast and exact.

3 – 162.400MHz
4 – 162.425MHz

3. Adjust the Volume control as desired.
4. Press the Off/Reset button to turn the weather report off.
Important Information Regarding Weather Broadcasts
• The weather band broadcast transmission is a very low power and not
the same as the transmission of FM radio broadcasts.
• Weather band stations are located in specific geographical locations
and terrain, which means the area in which you live may not be within
the range of such a station. If you receive AM/FM stations in your area
without a problem, but cannot receive weather band information, you
may be beyond the range of the nearest weather station.
• To help improve the reception, move the antenna or rotate the unit until
you get the best reception. Reception also varies from daytime to
nighttime.
