installing, setting up, and using your new product
using your radio
User’s Guide
To protect your hearing, follow these guidelines when
you use ear phones or head phones.
• Set the volume to the lowest setting before you
begin listening with your ear phones. After you begin
listening, set the volume to a comfortable level.
• Do not listen at extremely high volume levels.
Extended high-volume listening can lead to
permanent hearing loss.
• Once you set the volume do not increase it. Over
time, your ears adapt to the volume level, so a
volume level that does not cause discomfort might
still damage your hearing.
traffic safety
Do not wear ear phones or head phones while operating
a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can create a
traffic hazard and could be illegal in some areas.
Even though some earphones or headphones let you
hear some outside sounds when listening at normal
volume levels, they can still present a traffic hazard.

This product may be equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety
feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the polarized plug.
Alternate Warnings - This product is equipped with a three-wire grounding-type plug, a plug having a third (grounding) pin. This plug will only fit into a grounding-type power outlet. This is a
safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding-type plug.
Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and point where they exit from the product.
Protective Attachment Plug - The product is equipped with an attachment plug having overload protection. This is a safety feature. See Instruction Manual for replacement or resetting of
protective device. If replacement of the plug is required, be sure the service technician has used a replacement plug specified by the manufacturer that has the same overload protection as
the original plug.
If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810
of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the mast and supporting structure,
grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna-discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the
grounding electrode.
For added protection for this product during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or
cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power-line surges.
An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When
installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
Never push objects of any kind into this product through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short-out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid
of any kind on the product.
Do not attempt to service this product yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Unplug this product from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
a)When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
b)If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the product,
c) f the product has been exposed to rain or water,
d)If the product does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions as an improper adjustment of
other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the product to its normal operation.
e)If the product has been dropped or damaged in any way.
f) When the product exhibits a distinct change in performance - this indicates a need for service.
Replacement Parts - When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or have the same characteristics as the
original part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards.
Upon completion of any service or repairs to this product, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to determine that the product is in proper operating condition.

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
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that
to which the receiver is connected.
Consult your local RadioShack store or an experienced radio/TV
technician for help.
If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop
using your phone. Changes or modifications not expressly approved by
RadioShack may cause interference and void the user’s authority to
