ˆ Features

Your RadioShack 2-Line900MHz Cordless Answering Machine uses advanced cordless telephone technology to give you extended range and superior audio quality, with less interference than many other cordless phones. The phone lets you make and receive calls on two separate telephone lines.

The answering system stores up to 25 minutes or up to 59 messages on a computer chip and records each message’s day and time. This gives you advanced capabilities over tape-basedanswering machines:

you can delete individual messages and save the rest.

there are no tapes to bother with and no tape mechanisms to wear out.

The remote operation feature lets you operate your TAD from a touch-tonephone (or from a rotary phone with a pocket tone dialer).

Its features include:

TELEPHONE FEATURES

Two-LineTelephone System— lets you easily handle two telephone lines at the same time. You can use both lines to make 3- or 4-way conference calls, or use one line for data communication while you are talking on the other.

Speakerphone — lets you answer calls without using the handset.

Headset Jack — lets you make or answer calls with handsfree convenience using an optional headset.

10-NumberMemory Dialing— lets you store up to 10 numbers in memory for easy dialing.

Ample Talk and Standby Time — the supplied battery pack provides 7 hours of continuous talk time or 7 days of standby time (when fully charged).

Paging/Two-WayIntercom System— lets you send a signal from the base to the handset, or from the handset to the base, to page someone or locate the handset when it is away from the base. If someone answers, you can use the phone as an intercom.

Dual Volume Controls — let you adjust the volume you hear through the handset and speakerphone.

Adjustable Ringer — lets you choose high or low volume for both lines’ ringers.

Wall Mountable — you can mount the phone on the wall to save space on your desk top.

Facedown or Faceup Handset Charging — you can place the handset on the base facedown or faceup.

40 Channels — automatically selects a clear channel when you make or answer a call.

Security Access-ProtectionCode— automatically prevents other cordless

Features

phone users from using your phone line while the handset is off the base.

Line Status Indicators — show if a line is available, in use, or on hold.

Redial — lets you quickly redial the last number dialed.

Flash — sends an electronic switchhook signal for use with special phone services, such as Call Waiting.

Tone/Pulse Dialing — lets you use your phone with either type of service, and you can easily switch from pulse to tone dialing for long-distance, bank-by- phone, or other special services.

Hearing-AidCompatibility— lets you use your phone with hearing aids that have a T (telephone) switch.

TAD FEATURES

Call Screening — lets you listen as a caller leaves a message so you can decide whether or not to answer the call.

Day/Time Stamp — records the day and time each message was recorded.

Two-Line System — records incoming messages separately for Line 1 and Line 2.

Two Prerecorded Messages — gives you the option of using one of two prerecorded outgoing messages or recording your own.

Adjustable Incoming Message Recording Time — lets you set the TAD to record one minute or four minutes. You can set for each line separately.

Announcement Only — lets you play an announcement for callers to hear, without recording their messages.

Message-Counter — shows the number of messages the TAD has recorded.

Programmable PIN — you can set a two-digit personal identification number (PIN) for secure remote operation.

Memo Recording — lets you leave messages for yourself or others in your home or office. You can also record your phone conversation.

Important: Every state has different regulations governing the recording of conversations over the telephone. Be sure to check your local, state and federal laws before using this product to record any telephone conversation in order to determine that your use is in compliance with such laws or guidelines.

Phone Pick-UpDetection— stops recording when you pick up any phone on the same line as the phone, and resets to answer the next call.

Adjustable Ring Number — lets you set the TAD to answer after three or five rings, or use Toll Saver to avoid unnecessary charges when you call by long distance to check your messages.

Digital Volume Control — lets you precisely adjust the speakerphone and message playback.

Important:

Cordless phones such as this one require AC power to operate. When the AC power is off, you cannot dial out or receive incoming calls using your phone. To be safe, you should

Features

also have a corded phone that does not need AC power to operate so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

When AC power is lost, the phone loses the security access-protectioncode connection between the base and the handset. When power is restored, put the handset on the base briefly to restore this connection so you can use the handset.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

We have designed your telephone to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each telephone (and each device, such as an answering machine) that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the telephone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of your telephone.

If you use more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all of the RENs. If the total is more than five (or three in rural areas), your telephones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

Your telephone complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are on the bottom of your telephone.

Note: You must not connect your telephone to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key telephone systems

This equipment complies with the limits for a Class B digital device as specified in Part 15 of FCC Rules. These limits provide reasonable protection against radio and TV interference in a residential area. However, your equipment might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To eliminate interference, you can try one or more of the following corrective measures:

reorient or relocate the receiving antenna

increase the distance between the equipment and the radio or TV

use outlets on different electrical circuits for the equipment and the radio or TV

Consult your local RadioShack store if the problem still exists.

You must use shielded interface cables with this equipment.
