This device generates and uses radio frequency
(RF) energy, and if not installed and used proper-
ly, this equipment may cause interference to
radio and television reception.
If this equipment does cause interference to
radio or television reception (which you can
determine by unplugging the unit), try to correct
the interference by one or more of the following
• Re-orient the receiving antenna (that is, the
antenna for the radio or television that is
"receiving" the interference).
• Move the unit away from the equipment that
is receiving interference.
• Plug the unit into a different wall outlet so
that the unit and the equipment receiving inter-
ference are on different branch circuits.
If these measures do not eliminate the interfer-
ence, please consult your dealer or an experi-
enced radio/television technician for additional
suggestions. Also, the Federal Communications
