ˆ Features

Your RadioShack Wireless Caller ID System lets you screen your phone calls, so you can decide whether or not to answer. When you are up to 100 feet (30.48 meters) away from the phone and you receive a call, the system’s transmitter instantly sends the caller’s name and phone number (as provided by your local telephone company to Caller ID service subscribers) to its receiver.

Note: In some cases, the local environment might affect the transmission (for example, aluminum siding, electrical appliances, computer equipment, and so on).

The system’s other features include:

Caller ID Memory — stores up to 60 Caller ID records, so you always know who called and when they called.

Out of Area Indication — lets you know when an incoming call is from an area code that does not send Caller ID information.

Support for Unlimited Receivers — lets you add as many receivers as you need, anywhere within 100 feet of the transmitter.

3-LineLiquid Crystal Display— lets you see at a glance whether you have a new call, along with the total number of calls, the last caller’s name (if available) and phone number, and the current time and date.

Page Button — lets you verify that the receiver is within operating range of the transmitter.

FCC INFORMATION

We have designed your system to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each system (and each device, such as a telephone or 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 the system.

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

Your system 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 the system.

Note: You must not connect your system 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 TV or radio’s 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 continues.

ˆ Preparation

POWERING THE SYSTEM’S TRANSMITTER

Use the supplied 9V, 200-mAAC adapter to power the system’s transmitter.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power source that sup-

!plies 9V DC and delivers at least 200 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit

the transmitter's DC 9V jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the transmitter or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the transmitter before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the transmitter.

Plug the adapter’s barrel plug into the

transmitter’s DC 9V jack.

DC 9V

Plug the adapter’s other end into a standard AC outlet. The POWER indicator lights.

POWERING THE SYSTEM’S RECEIVER

You can power the system’s receiver using four C batteries or an AC adapter (neither supplied).

Installing Batteries

The system’s receiver can use four C batteries (not supplied) for power. For longest operation and best performance, we recommend alkaline batteries, available at your local RadioShack store.

Cautions:

Always use fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

Follow these steps to install batteries.

1.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws on the battery compartment cover, then lift and remove the cover.

2.Place the batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked inside.

3.Replace the cover and secure it with the screws. ID TO LEARN appears.

When the display dims or appears, replace the batteries.

Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.

Caution: If you do not plan to use the receiver with batteries for a month, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

Using AC Power

You can also power the system’s receiver using an optional 9V, 200-mAAC adapter and a size M AdaptaplugTM adapter (available at your local RadioShack store).

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power source that sup-

!plies 9V DC and delivers at least 200 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit

the receiver's DC 9V jack. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the receiver or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the receiver before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the receiver.

1.Insert the Adaptaplug into the adapter’s cord so it reads TIP +.

2.Insert the Adaptaplug into the receiver’s DC 9V jack.

3.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet. ID TO LEARN appears.
