To protect your hearing, follow these guidelines when you use the radio.

Do not listen at extremely high volume levels. Extended high-volumelistening 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.


The radio might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To determine whether the radio is causing the interference, turn off the radio. If the interference goes away, the radio is causing the interference. Try to eliminate the interference by:

Moving the radio away from the receiver.

Contacting your local Radio Shack store for help.

If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop using the radio.
