PREPARATION FOR USE

UNPACKING AND SET UP

Remove the radio from the carton and remove all packing material from the radio. We suggest that you save the packing material, if possible, in the unlikely event that your radio ever needs to be returned for service. The original carton and packing material is the only safe way to pack your radio to protect it from damage in transit.

Remove any descriptive labels or stickers on the front or top of the cabinet. Do not remove any labels or stickers from the back or bottom of the cabinet.

Place your radio on a level surface such as a table, desk or shelf, convenient to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from sources of excess heat, dirt, dust, moisture, humidity, or vibration.

Unwind the AC power cord and extend it to its full length.

AC OPERATION

The AC power cord is located inside the battery compartment. It is permanently attached to the radio to prevent loss.

Open the battery compartment by pressing on the “ OPEN ” marks on the cover and sliding it downward in the direction of the arrows.

OPEN

OPEN

• Slide the battery cover upward until it snaps back into place.

Connect the AC cord to your 120V 60Hz outlet.

Note: When the AC power cord is connected to the outlet the power source automatically switches to AC. You may leave batteries inside the unit if desired. There is no battery consumption when the power cord is connected to an AC outlet.

CAUTION

This radio is designed to operate on normal 120V 60Hz AC power only. Do not attempt to operate the radio on any other power source. You could cause damage to the radio that is not covered by your warranty.

This radio uses a polarized AC plug which has one blade wider than the other. This plug will only fit into a polarized AC outlet. This is a safety feature. If the plug will not fit, you may have an older non-polarizedAC outlet. Do not defeat the safety feature by trying to file the wider blade, or replacing the plug. Contact an electrician to replace your outdated outlet.

PROTECT YOUR FURNITURE

This model is equipped with non-skidrubber 'feet' to prevent the product from moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made fromnon-migratingrubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly recommend that you purchase smallself-adhesivefelt pads, available at hardware stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

WEATHER BAND OPERATION

This radio receives continuous U.S. Government Weather Broadcasts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), part of the Department of Commerce. This National Weather Radio service includes more than 750 transmitters covering all 50 states and adjacent coastal waters, Puerto Rico, the U. S. Virgin Islands, and the U.S. Pacific Territories. The weather broadcasts are transmitted on seven separate bands from 162.400 MHz to162.550 MHz.

To hear the weather reports, press the WEATHER button on the top cabinet at any time. If you were listening to another band the radio will automatically switch to the weather band.

The volume level is fixed at optimum listening level on Instant Weather operation. In order to increase or decrease the volume level, turn the volume control up or down.

Note: Since the National Weather Radio transmitters operate at much lower power than commercial radio stations, the volume on the weather band will be lower than for AM/FM or TV bands. This is normal and not an indication of any trouble with your unit. Adjust the volume when listening to the Weather Band if necessary.
