Getting Started
POWERING YOUR RADIO
Before powering your radio be sure to read
the Safety Instructions on pages 27 and 28.
The CCRadio 2E will run on (4) “D” size NiMH or alkaline batteries or on
120V AC house current using the included power cord. Batteries are
optional. The batteries are necessary to retain the timer, clock, and
memory settings if the power cord is removed from the radio for more
than three minutes.
Rechargeable batteries work well in this radio. The Battery Power Level
Indicator will be lower because the total voltage is lower for rechargeable batteries.
AC OPERATION
Before you plug the AC cord into the radio be sure the AC voltage is
120Volts/60Hz. If you have batteries in the radio and you use the AC
power cord, the batteries will automatically be disconnected.
NOTE: If you remove the power cord without turning the radio OFF, the
radio will automatically revert to the batteries.
Insert the plug on the end of
the supplied power cord into
the AC power jack on the
back of the radio.

Radio Operation
WEATHER ALERT SYSTEM
The WEATHER ALERT modes on the CCRadio 2E can alert you to
special weather related emergencies. During an emergency or weatherrelated hazard, NOAA issues an emergency tone that will set off an
audible and/or visual alarm on the radio.
NOTE: Hazard warnings are not available in all areas.
There are seven standard NOAA weather channels used in the US and
Canada. This radio receives broadcasts up to 40 miles from transmitting
stations.
1) To listen to the standard NOAA weather channels, turn the radio on,
press the Band button until WX shows on the display. The telescopic
whip antenna may need to be fully extended and in the “up” position
to receive a station clearly.
2) The channel number of the weather station is shown on the display.
Pressing the Tuning Up or Down Buttons will toggle you through the
seven programmed channels. There should be one or more weather
service stations broadcasting in your local area. You will hear a
report that is updated usually once or more per day for your area. If
there is a severe weather or weather-related emergency, NOAA will
update the weather broadcast more frequently. If there is a weather
emergency, the NOAA will issue an alert tone.
After locating and tuning in your weather station the radio can now be
placed into WEATHER ALERT mode. The WEATHER ALERT mode
enables you to listen to your favorite AM or FM station or turn the radio
off, and still receive an alert signal warning you of a special emergency.
There are three active WEATHER ALERT modes on the CCRadio 2E.
NOTE:
1) When activated, the WEATHER ALERT consumes power even when
the radio is turned off.
2) Be aware that if you are not using AC power the WEATHER
ALERT will completely drain your batteries. If your batteries are
dead and AC power is off, the WX Alert Alarm will not work.
Setting the Weather Alert
1) To place the radio in WEATHER ALERT mode, press and hold the
Weather Alert Button for two seconds: You will hear a short beep
and see the alert symbol, shown on page 13 (top right), on the
display. When the radio is off, the beep volume is significantly reduced.
Page 12
CCRadio 2E
Radio Operation
This is WEATHER ALERT mode with flashing light
only (no Alarm). If NOAA issues a weather related
emergency, the radio will automatically alert you with
a small flashing light near the top of the radio. The Alert light
continues to flash until any button is pushed.
2) To access the second mode, (WEATHER ALERT with NOAA Audio).
Press and hold the WEATHER ALERT Button again for two seconds
until you hear a long beep. The symbol shown at
right will be displayed in this mode. In this mode,
if the NOAA alert tone is issued, the red light
flashes and the radio switches to Weather Audio automatically.
3) To access the third mode, (WEATHER ALERT with flashing light and
siren). Press and hold the WEATHER ALERT
Button again for two seconds until you hear a
double beep. The symbol shown at right, will
appear and the red light near the top radio comes on continuously.
In this mode, if the NOAA alert tone is issued, the red light on the
top of the radio flashes and a siren turns on for up to 1 minute. In
this mode, when the siren is active, pressing any button on the radio
instantly turns the radio to the Weather Audio and cancels the siren.
SPECIAL NOTE: If you have the headphones plugged in and a weather
alert is issued, the audio to the headphones will be cut-off and the siren
will sound through the radio’s speaker.
Turning Off the Weather Alert
Press the WEATHER ALERT Button again for two seconds:
The alarm goes off and is inactive. The ALERT symbol will
disappear from the display.
In any of the active WEATHER ALERT modes, the weather receiver
stays on and listens for an emergency tone issued from NOAA in case
of emergency.
You may get a periodic test tone from the NOAA that will cause an
unexpected alarm on your CCRadio 2E. This tone is only a test and will
happen periodically, usually every Wednesday at noon, or whenever the
agency decides to test their emergency alert system. Simply pressing
any button on the receiver will shut the alert tone off. After an alert has
been issued, the WEATHER ALERT light and/or siren will stay on for
one minute or until you turn it off by pressing any button.

Radio Operation
2-METER HAM (VHF) BAND (144 TO 148 MHZ)
The 2-Meter Ham Band is a popular radio band used by amateur radio
operators for civil defense. After a hurricane, earthquake or other
calamity, 90% of emergency coordination at the local level takes place
on this band. Listening to this band during an emergency can be
extremely valuable and even life saving. For most people, the
CCRadio 2E will probably be their first experience with Ham radio.
We have preprogrammed some of the most popular frequencies into the
five memories of the CCRadio 2E. Different frequencies may be active
at your location, other than those preprogrammed into the memories.
The following are the frequencies and memory locations as they were
originally preprogrammed:
1) 146.520
2) 146.760
3) 146.880
4) 146.940
5) 147.000
You can program your frequencies of interest into a memory location at
any time.
To scan the five memory channels when in 2-Meter Ham,
momentarily press both of the Up and Down Tuning Buttons
at once, the radio will scan the memories and automatically
stop when it detects a voice transmission. Raise the telescopic antenna
up fully in a vertical position. It is best to set the squelch level prior to
scanning the memory stations. See “Setting the Squelch” below.
SETTING THE SQUELCH
Background noise or static is present to some degree at every location
and on every frequency of the 2-Meter Ham Band. This is a normal condition. If you set the squelch above the background noise level, the
radio will remain silent until a voice transmission is detected. It is best to
set the squelch as low as possible (to just before static is constant).
This way you can hear signals that may be weak. If you set the squelch
too high, you may miss some weak voice transmissions.
To adjust the squelch level, press and hold the main
Tuning Knob in for one second until the display changes.
Turn the Tuning Knob slowly clockwise from OFF
through 12 (increasing squelch) until the radio just becomes silent.
NOTE: Squelch operates on the 2-Meter Ham Band only.
Page 14
CCRadio 2E
Radio Operation
SEARCHING FOR A NEW ACTIVE FREQUENCY
At times, more frequencies will become active than have been preprogrammed into the radio. You can search the 2-Meter Ham band by
pressing the Up or Down Tuning Button and holding it
momentarily. You can also start scanning by pressing and
releasing the main Tuning Knob. The radio will begin searching the entire 2-Meter Ham band until it finds an active frequency and
then it will stop. You may want to write down this frequency to keep
track of which frequencies are active. With time you may find a frequency of interest.
During non-emergency times, you can listen and learn more about the
Ham radio operators that live around you. After listening to them for a
time, you may find you would like to be a Ham, too. Joining requires
passing an entry level multiple choice test and purchasing reasonably
priced Ham radio equipment. The 2-Meter band is the most popular
place to start for a Ham. You can contact the American Radio Relay
League (ARRL) toll free at 888-277-5289 or at arrl.org to find out what
you need to learn and the nearest testing location.
C. Crane salutes every Ham who has volunteered to be a part of
emergency radio operations.
DEFAULT CLOCK/ FREQUENCY SETTING
When listening to AM and FM bands the default setting is for the
Frequency to be displayed for approximately 5 seconds and then return
to the Clock Display. This can be changed to show just the Frequency
unless the Clock/ Freq button is pushed and then the clock will display
for approximately 5 seconds and then show the Frequency.
To change the display to show Frequency - turn on the power, then
press and hold the Clock/ Freq button. Then press the Memory 1
button until you hear a beep. You should now see the frequency
displayed unless you push the Clock/ Freq button, in which case you
will see the clock for approximately 5 seconds.
Reverse the process to return to the default of showing the clock.

The red jack, labeled LINE OUT, is used to output the audio from the
CCRadio 2E to another device such as a recorder, your home stereo, or
some other unit. To do this, you will need an 1/8" stereo patch cord.
Note: The LINE OUT jack differs from a headphone jack because the
volume level of a headphone jack varies depending on the volume of
the radio. The LINE OUT jack has a set line level so the volume is consistent no matter what the position of the volume knob.
1) Plug your patch cord into the LINE OUT jack on the CCRadio 2E.
2) Plug the other end of the patch cord into the LINE IN or AUDIO IN
of the device you want to send the audio to and you will hear the
radio through the other source. You can still listen to the
CCRadio 2E while using the LINE OUT jack.

Troubleshooting Guide
The CCRadio 2E will not turn on and none of the buttons work:
The Lock Switch, located on the right side of the radio between the
tuning and the volume knobs, is in the up position. Push the switch
down to release the lock and resume normal operation of the radio.
(Please see Lock Switch on page 16.)
The CCRadio 2E comes on by itself or changes to a different
station while I’m listening:
The Timer has been set. The word TIMER will appear in the display if
the Timer is set. To cancel the Timer setting, press and hold the
Timer/Set button until you hear a short beep and the word TIMER
disappears from the display.
My radio shuts off after just a few seconds:
Low batteries can cause this situation. Replace them with a new set of
batteries. If the radio is operating on the power cord, check for solid
connections at the wall outlet and the back of the radio. Also make sure
there is power at the wall outlet.
Stations won’t hold in memory:
The memory button settings are being overwritten. When recalling a
station from memory, if you hold the memory button down too long it will
program the current station over your previously stored station. To recall
a station that has been stored in memory, always press and release the
button quickly. To program a new station into memory, tune to the
desired station and then press and hold the memory button for two
seconds until you hear a beep. Also, please see the section on Memory
Tuning on page 11.
The AM reception is poor inside of my building:
Many building materials have adverse effects on AM band listening.
Brick, concrete, stucco, and aluminum siding all have a tendency to
absorb or reflect the AM signal. Spanish tiles or metal roofs are also
culprits. To test your AM reception, put batteries in your radio and take it
outside of the building, especially at night. If your reception is notably
stronger outside than inside the building, an external AM antenna may
be necessary to bring the signal into the building. See the AM Tuning
and Listening Tips section on page 26 for a quick and easy antenna.

Radio Noise Troubleshooting
AM RADIO NOISE PROBLEMS
AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS
If you hear an annoying buzz when listening to AM radio, it’s most likely
radio noise. Here are some of the usual culprits:
• Dimmer switch (even in an adjacent room).
• Lights: Fluorescent light, "touch lamp" type fixtures, automatic
night lights, motion-activated outdoor lights, dying bulbs,
blinking bulbs.
• Nearby television or computer.
• Electronic bug and pest controllers.
• Faulty electrical switch.
• Radio scanners.
• Dirty insulators on a nearby power pole.
• Electric blanket.
• Smoke detectors that run from an AC current (battery operated
units are OK).
Now what can you do about it?
• Turn off the circuit breakers to see if the noise stops, and if the
source comes from inside your house. Turn off one circuit at a
time to isolate the source of the noise.
• Using a battery-operated radio, check if the interference comes
from the AC 120V line, through the air, or both. To locate the
direction of the noise, turn the radio until you hear the loudest
noise. The front and the back of the radio will point to the noise
origin.
• If the noise comes from outside, carry the radio around the
neighborhood to check for the origin of the noise. Ask your
neighbors if they hear the same noise.
• If you suspect a power pole, call the utility company. Dirty
power pole insulators are sometimes a cause of hard-to-find
radio interference.
• Sometimes grounding can greatly reduce the hum from AC line
noise. Unfortunately, most radios do not have a ground
connection. Finding a good earth ground may also be difficult.

Safety Instructions
READ BEFORE OPERATING EQUIPMENT
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
1) Read and understand all safety and operating instructions before the
radio is operated.
2) Retain Instructions: The safety and operating instructions should be
retained for future reference.
3) Heed Warnings: All warnings on the appliance and in the operating
instructions should be followed.
4) Water and Moisture: The appliance should not be used near water. Do
not use near a bathtub, washbowl, laundry tub, kitchen sink, wet
basement, swimming pool, etc.
5) Cleaning: Unplug the receiver from the AC power outlet before cleaning. Use only a dry cloth for cleaning the exterior of the receiver.
6) Placement: Do not place the radio on an unstable cart, stand, bracket
or table. The radio may fall, causing serious personal injury and damage to the receiver.
7) Ventilation: This radio should be situated so that its location or position do not interfere with its proper ventilation. For example, the
radio should not be used on a bed, sofa, rug or other soft surfaces
that may block the ventilation openings. It should not be placed in a
built-in situation like a cabinet that may reduce air flow through the
ventilation openings.
8) Heat: Never put the radio in direct sunlight in an unventilated area or
behind glass like a car’s interior. The appliance should be away from
heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances that produce heat.
9) Power Cords: The power cord should be positioned so it is not walked
on, pinched, or have items placed on top of it. Pay particular attention
to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they
exit from the unit. Unplug the power cord by gripping the power plug,
not the cord. Operate the radio using only the correct type of power
source indicated. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to
your home, consult your dealer or local power company.
10) Do not overload wall outlets or extension cords. This can result in a
risk of fire or electrical shock. Never insert objects of any kind into the
receiver through openings. The objects may touch dangerous voltage
CCRadio 2E
Page 27
Safety Instructions
points or short out parts. This could cause a fire or electrical shock.
11) If the radio is left unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet. This will prevent damage caused by
lightning or power line surges.
12) If the radio is left unattended and unused for long periods of time,
remove the batteries. The batteries may leak and damage furniture or
your radio.
13) Do not attempt to service the receiver yourself. Removing the cover
may expose you to dangerous voltage, and will void the warranty.
Refer all servicing to authorized service personnel.
14) The receiver is equipped with a polarized type 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 fails to
fit, contact an electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. Do not defeat
the safety purpose of this plug.
15) The appliance should be serviced by qualified service personnel
when:
A.
B.
C.
D.
The power supply cord or the plug has been damaged, or
Objects have fallen or liquid has been spilled into the radio, or
The radio has been exposed to rain, or
The radio does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a
marked change in performance, or
E. The radio has been dropped or the enclosure damaged.
16) The user should not attempt to service the appliance beyond that
described in the operating instructions. All other servicing
should be referred to qualified service personnel. This
symbol is to alert you to important operation or servicing
instructions that may appear in the owner‘s manual.
17) Antenna installations can be dangerous because many times it
involves the use of a ladder and a possible fall. The antenna can be
struck by lightning, which can be fatal. We recommend a licensed
and insured installation by a qualified person.
18) Long-term exposure to loud sounds may cause hearing damage. It is
best to avoid high volume levels when using headphones or earbuds,
especially for extended periods.
