INTRODUCTION
Thank you for choosing the JX-M122 AM/FM/WB 3 band radio. Before operating the
unit, please read these instructions thoroughly and retain them for future reference.
The JX-M122 is designed to receive National Weather Service (NWS) broadcasts, by
the Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Aerospace Administration
(NOAA) which provides information about weather conditions, forecasts and hazard
information 24 hours a day as a public service. JX-M122 will call attention to
emergency warnings or watches issued by NOAA with its built-in siren.
JX-M122 receives all of the seven NOAA channels. (Note: The correct weather
channel must be selected in order to receive warnings for the state/county in which
you are located). The unit will sound an audible alert tone when an alert tone is
received and alert function is turned on.
For up-to-date information on NOAA and weather frequencies used in your area,
check the NOAA National Weather Service website at: www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr.

OPERATIONAL INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT!
The fact that you can get clear voice reception does not guarantee that an
emergency alert will trigger this unit’s alert tone. To test actual reception, your unit
must receive the weekly Test or Emergency Alert Signal Broadcast.
Follow the instructions in the previous sections and set the radio to ALERT to receive
Test Alert Broadcasts from the NWS station.
The National Weather Service (NWS) broadcasts a Test Alert every week on
Wednesday between 11:00am and 12: 00 noon. To find out the specific test schedule
in your area, contact your local National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) or National Weather Service (NWS) office. These offices are listed in the
telephone book under “US Government”.
When you are traveling with your radio and want to use it in a new location, make
sure you have the correct Weather Channel (1-7). Verify that the unit can be
activated by the test broadcast in the new location.
REMEMBER-FOR YOUR SYSTEM TO BE EFFECTIVE, THE RADIO MUST BE
PLACED IN A LOCATION THAT CAN RECEIVE AN EMERGENCY ALERT
SIGNAL AND WHERE THE ALERT TONE CAN BE HEARD.

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:
1. Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

FCC RULES
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
condition that this device does not cause harmful interference.
Note: Do not make changes or modify the device in any way. Changes or
modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance

IMPORTANT NOTES ON HEARING
Your hearing is very important to you and to us, so please take care when operating
this equipment. We strongly recommend you to follow the guideline below in order to
prevent possible damage or loss of hearing.
If you continuously listen to the loud sounds, your hearing will adapt to continuous
loud sounds and will give you the impression that the volume has been reduced.
What seems normal to you may in fact be harmful. To guard against this BEFORE
YOUR HEARING ADAPTS, set the volume at a low level and slowly increase the
volume level until you can hear comfortably and clearly without distortion. Damage to
your hearing is accumulative and is irreversible. Any ringing or discomfort in the ears
indicates that the volume is too loud. Once you have established a comfortable
listening level, DO NOT INCREASE THE VOLUME LEVEL FURTHER.
In the use of headphones, please take more attention. Hearing experts say that
listening to a loud music can damage your hearing, especially when listening to
music with headphones.
