FEATURES

Your RadioShack TAD-1027Digital Telephone Answering System with Day/ Time Voice Stamp is ahigh-qualityfullydigital telephone answering device withtouch-toneremote control. Fully digital means theTAD-1027stores all messages on a computer chip — there are no tape mechanisms to wear out and no tapes to bother with. This gives you capabilities thattape-basedanswering machines do not have. For example, you can move quickly from message to message without listening to every one.

The TAD-1027’s14-minutememory capacity lets you store more messages than many other TADs (telephone answering devices). And, its unique, spacesaving design makes it ideal for any desk or nightstand. YourTAD-1027’sremote control features let you retrieve messages from almost anytouch-tonephone. With an optional pocket tone dialer, you can even use it from a rotary phone.

Your TAD-1027’sfeatures include:

Voice Day/Time Stamp — announces the day and time when each message was recorded.

User-Selectable3-DigitRemote Operation Security Code— helps prevent unauthorized remote operation.

Digital Outgoing Message — gives you a clear outgoing message that can be up to 60 seconds long.

Digital Incoming Message Storage — stores incoming messages of up to 60 seconds on a computer chip making it easy to quickly access the message you want.

Memory Backup — protects messages stored in memory in case of a power failure.

Adjustable Ring Selection — lets you set the TAD-1027 to answer the telephone after four or seven rings.

Toll Saver — lets you avoid unnecessarylong-distancecharges when you call long distance to check your messages.

Call Screening — lets you listen to incoming calls so you can decide whether or not to answer.

Phone Pickup Detection — automatically stops the TAD-1027 and resets it if you answer a call after the TAD answers.

Memo Recording — lets you leave memos as messages on theTAD-1027.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

Your TAD-1027conforms to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device you connect to the phone line draws power from the phone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’sringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the label on the bottom of the TAD.

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 (or three in rural areas), your phone(s) might not ring and your TAD might not answer. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

FCC STATEMENT

Your TAD-1027complies with Part 68 ofFCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC Registration Number and the REN to your phone company. Both numbers are on the label on the bottom of the TAD.

You must not connect the TAD-1027to any of the following:

INSTALLATION

CHOOSING A LOCATION

Select a location that is near both a modular telephone jack and an AC outlet.

Your TAD-1027connects directly to a modular telephone line jack. If the telephone line jack is not a modular jack, you must update the wiring. You can convert the wiring yourself, using jacks and adapters available at your local RadioShack store. Or, you can let the telephone company update the wiring for you. The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C.

INSTALLING THE

BACKUP BATTERY

The TAD requires AC power to operate. However, if AC power fails or you unplug the TAD-1027,a9-voltbackup battery (not supplied) saves the messages and the settings for the day, time, and remote operation security code. We recommend you use an alkaline battery, such as RadioShack Cat. No.23-553.

Warning: If the TAD’s modular line cord is already connected to the telephone line jack, disconnect it before you install the backup battery. This reduces the risk of electric shock.

Caution: Always use a fresh battery of the required size and recommended type.

Note: The TAD cannot answer and record incoming calls without AC power.

Follow these steps to install the backup battery.

1.Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction of the arrow, then lift off the cover.

Illus. showing removal of battery compartment cover.

2.Snap the battery’s contacts firmly to the TAD-1027’sconnector and place the battery into the compartment.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Your RadioShack TAD-1027Digital Telephone Answering System with Day/Time Voice Stamp is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for theTAD-1027so you can enjoy it for years.

Keep the TAD-1027dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.

Use and store the TAD-1027only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.

Keep the TAD-1027away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.

Handle the TAD-1027gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the TAD to work improperly.

Use only a fresh battery of the required size and type. Batteries can leak chemicals that damage your TAD-1027’selectronic parts.

Wipe the TAD-1027with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the TAD.

Modifying or tampering with the TAD-1027’sinternal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate your TAD’s warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If yourTAD-1027is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance. If the trouble is affecting the telephone lines, the phone company can ask you to disconnect your TAD until you have resolved the problem.

17

43-787.fmPage 18 Monday, August 16, 1999 8:11 AM

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

In the unlikely event that your TAD-1027causes problems on the telephone line, the telephone company can temporarily discontinue your service. If this happens, the telephone company attempts to notify you in advance. If advance notice is not practical, the telephone company notifies you as soon as possible and advises you of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.

Also, the telephone company can make changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of this TAD. The telephone company notifies you of these changes in advance so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone services.

Your TAD-1027complies with the limits for a Class B digital device as specified in Part 15 ofFCC Rules. These limits provide reasonable protection against radio and TV interference in a residential area. However, your TAD might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly.

18

To eliminate interference, you can try one or more of the following corrective measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving radio or TV antenna.

Increase the distance between the TAD-1027and the radio or TV.

Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the TAD-1027and the radio or TV.

Consult your local RadioShack store if the problem still exists.

LIGHTNING

Your TAD-1027hasbuilt-inprotection circuits to reduce the risk of damage from surges in telephone line and power line current. These protection circuits meet or exceed the FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the telephone or power lines can damage your TAD.

Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has severe electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug the TAD-1027during storms to reduce the possibility of damage.
