For products intended to operate from battery power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.

11.GROUNDING OR POLARIZATION

This product is equipped with a polarized alternating-currentline plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

14.POWER LINES

An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.

15.OVERLOADING

Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
