FCC Statement (Part 15) - Radio Frequency Interference
The DST1 Digital StereoTuner generates and uses radio frequency energy and if not installed and used in strict accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, may cause interference to radio and television reception.Testing is being conducted for compliance with the limits for a Class B device in accordance with the
specifications in Part 15 of the FCC Rules and Canadian D.O.C. regulations.This testing is designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference. However,there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause interference to radio or television recep-
tion, which can be determined by turning the DST1 unit off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
- Reorient the radio orTV receiving antenna.
