FEATURES

Your RadioShack ET-1105Digital Spread Spectrum 900 MHz Cordless Telephone uses advanced digital cordless technology to give you superior sound quality and extended range. The telephone digitizes and scrambles your conversation before transmitting it between the handset and the base, so your conversation is secure from interception by other cordless telephone or scanner users. Its cordless operation lets you handle calls just about anywhere in your home or office.

The phone can display a caller’s phone number, name (if available), and the date and time the call was received. It can store up to 45 records as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscribers.

If you have Call Waiting with Caller ID, the phone displays incoming caller information for a new call when you are already on the phone.

The ET-1105has these features:

900 MHz Operation — provides better sound and less interference than many other cordless phones.

Digital Spread Spectrum — provides the longest range and the utmost in security. Frequencies are constantly changing across the entire 900 MHz band, making your calls impossible to monitor on scanners.

Headset Jack — lets you connect an optional headset (such as RadioShack Cat. No.43-195)forhands-freeconvenience while you use the phone.

20-NumberMemory Dialing— lets you store 20 numbers in memory for easy dialing.

Volume Control — lets you adjust the volume you hear through the handset.

Page — lets you send a paging signal from the base to the handset to page someone or locate the handset when it is away from the base.

4-HourTalk or7-DayStandby Time— lets you talk for 4 hours or keep the phone off the base for 7 days without recharging (with a fully charged battery pack).

Caller ID Memory Dialing — lets you select a phone number stored in Caller ID memory, then dial it with the touch of a button.

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

VIP Memory — alerts you with a distinctive ring when someone you have added to the VIP list calls.

Important Caller ID Information

To use the phone’s Caller ID and Call Waiting features, you must be in an area where Caller ID and Call Waiting services are available and you must subscribe to the services.

Where Caller ID is offered, one or more of the following options are generally available:

Caller’s number only

Caller’s name only

Caller’s name and number

For the ET-1105’sCaller ID memory dial feature to operate, you must receive the caller’s number.

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 yourET-1105.For this reason, the ET1105 cordless phone should not be your only telephone. To be safe, you should also have a corded phone that does not require AC power to operate so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

Your telephone operates on standard radio frequencies as allocated by the FCC. Even though the access protection code prevents unauthorized use of your phone line, it is possible for other radio units operating on similar frequencies within a certain area to unintentionally intercept your conversations and/or cause inter-

4

ference. This lack of privacy can occur with any cordless phone.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

Each device that you connect to the phone line draws power from the phone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of the base.

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

FCC STATEMENT

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

Note: You must not connect your ET1105 to any of the following:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key phone systems

near an accessible AC outlet

near a telephone line jack

out of the way of normal activities

away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, metal walls or filing cabinets, wireless intercoms, alarms, and room monitors

The base’s location affects the phone’s range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides the best performance.

Caution: The supplied AC adapter was designed specifically for yourET-1105.Use only the supplied adapter.

PLACING THE BASE ON A DESK TOP

Follow these steps to place the base on a desk, shelf, or table.

1.Remove the bracket by holding in both tabs and gently pulling out the wide end of the bracket.

CONNECTING AND CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK

The ET-1105comes with a rechargeablenickel-cadmiumbattery pack in the handset but not connected. Before using your phone, you must connect the battery pack and then charge it for about 16 hours.

1.Press down and slide off the compartment cover as shown.

2.Plug the battery pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment. The connector fits only one way.

Note: For easier battery pack connection, lift it out of the compartment, insert its connector into the socket, then replace the battery pack inside the compartment.

3. Replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, place the handset on the base. The CHARGE indicator on the base lights.

Recharge the battery pack when andLOW BATTERY appear on the handset’s display.

43-1105.fmPage 10 Monday, August 30, 1999 1:57 PM

Notes:

You can place the handset on the base face down or face up without removing the belt clip. If you want to use the hanging hole on the back of the handset to place the handset on the wall-mountedbaseface-up,remove the belt clip (see “Removing the Belt Clip” on Page 13). However, the battery pack will not fully charge in this position.

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, the phone might not work and you might hear an error tone when you press TALK. If this happens, return the handset to the base for about 6 seconds. This resets the security access protection code.

If the CHARGE indicator does not light when you place the handset on the base, be sure the battery pack and AC adapter are correctly and securely connected.

Also, check the charging contacts on the handset and the base. If the contacts are dirty or tarnished, clean them with a pencil eraser.

If the battery pack gets completely discharged or the base loses power while the handset is away from it, the security access-protectioncode needs to be reset. To reset the code, place the handset on the base. If it

10

was the handset that lost power, leave the handset on the base to charge the battery pack.

If the battery pack gets weak during a call, the handset beeps once every 16 seconds. If this happens, you cannot make another call on the phone until you recharge the battery pack.

About once a month, fully discharge the battery pack by keeping the handset off the base until andLOW BATTERY appear. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

To avoid damage to the battery pack, always recharge the handset before battery power grows too weak to display .

If you are not going to use your phone for an extended period of time, disconnect the battery pack. This increases the battery pack’s usable life.

The supplied battery pack should last for about a year. When it loses its ability to fully recharge, order a replacement battery pack from your local RadioShack store (see “Replacing the Battery Pack” on Page 26).
