FEATURES

Your RadioShack TRC-300Voice Activated MicrocassetteTele-Recorderis perfect for your home or office. It records telephone calls you make or receive from a telephone. You can also use it as a convenient tape recorder to record other events such as lectures, interviews, and meetings.

The recorder includes these features:

Connects Directly to the Telephone — to let you easily record and play back telephone conversations.

Two Tape Speeds — let you record and play back tape at a slower speed which provides twice the recording/playback time or at normal speed for maximum sound quality.

4

Voice Activated Recording (VOX) — records only when it receives sound, to eliminate blank sections on the tape and save battery power.

Play/Record Auto-Stop— stops the tape movement when the recorder reaches the end of the tape during recording or playback.

Manual Recording — lets you record dictation or conversations at the touch of a button.

Pause Switch — lets you easily stop and restart the tape to avoid recording unwanted sound.

Tape Counter — lets you note specific points in a tape for later reference.

5

Built-InMicrophone— lets you record without connecting an external microphone.

Cue/Review Function — lets you advance or rewind the tape during play to find a specific section on the tape.

Three Power Options — you can power the recorder from standard AC power, two AA batteries (not supplied), or a vehicle’s battery using an optional adapter.

Earphone Jack — lets you connect an earphone with a1/8-inch(3.5-mm)plug for private listening.

6

Automatic Level Control — automatically adjusts the recording level.

Note: You need at least one30-minutemicrocassette tape. If you use a leaderless incoming message tape, recording starts immediately. You also need either two AA batteries or an AC or DC adapter.

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.
