Dual Wake Clock Radio
We bring good things to life.
The AC power plug is polarized (one blade is wider than the other) and
only fits into AC power outlets one way. If the plug won't go into the
outlet completely, turn the plug over and try to insert it the other way. If it
still won't fit, contact a qualified electrician to change the outlet, or use a
different one. Do not attempt to bypass this safety feature.
When storing or unplugging from AC outlet for a day or more, be sure
to remove battery because it can leak and damage the unit.
Batteries may leak electrolyte if inserted incorrectly, if disposed of in
fire, or if an attempt is made to charge a battery not intended to be
Discard leaky batteries immediately. Leaking batteries can cause skin
burns or other personal injury.
Dispose of batteries, according to federal, state, and local regulations.

This clock radio is equipped with a memory holding system powered by a
9-volt alkaline battery (not included).
When power is interrupted or the AC line cord is unplugged, the battery
will power the clock radio to keep track of time and alarm settings
programmed into memory. Should WAKE TIME occur during the power
interruption, the radio will operate or the alarm will sound if remaining
battery power is adequate. Normal operation will resume after AC power
is restored. When on battery power, the digital display will not light.
Install battery as follows:
1. Unlatch and lift off battery compartment door (located on bottom of
2. Connect a 9-volt battery.
3. Insert battery in compartment and replace compartment door.
• Alkaline batteries are recommended. Carbon-zinc batteries may be
used but memory holding time will be substantially reduced. Memory
holding time for a fresh alkaline battery is approximately 8 hours (if
Wake System is not activated). To preserve battery life, the radio
should remain plugged into an AC outlet. As the battery gets older, its
voltage will drop and memory may be lost. Be sure to replace the
• Be sure to remove battery when storing the unit. Battery will be
drained if left connected while the unit is unplugged, and a worn out
battery may leak chemicals which can badly damage the clock radio.
When discarding batteries, be sure to dispose of them in the proper
manner, according to your state and local regulations.
If AC power is interrupted (disconnected) for a short period, both time
and alarm settings will change unless optional battery is installed. After
AC power is restored (reconnected) the digital display will blink to
indicate that power was interrupted and you must readjust the TIME and

The Built-In Automatic Frequency Control (AFC) works only on FM. It
helps keep the radio locked on the FM station to which it is tuned.
When tuning in FM stations, you may notice that often the station you
desire can be heard on two or three nearby points on the dial. Always
tune carefully to the loudest and clearest point.
AM Antenna - A built-in ferrite rod antenna eliminates the need for an
outside antenna for AM reception - Rotating the unit slightly may improve
reception of distant AM stations.
FM Antenna - The power cord acts as your FM antenna. The power cord
picks up moderate to strong stations and eliminates the need for an
external antenna in most strong signal areas. Be sure the power cord is
stretched to its full length. Do not coil or bunch the cord together.
Changing position of the power cord may improve reception.
1. Plug the power cord into any 120V AC household outlet.
2. Press the ON button.
3. Slide the AM/FM BAND switch to desired broadcast band.
4. Turn TUNING dial to select a station and then turn the VOLUME
control to your preferred listening level.
5. Press the OFF button to turn radio off.
Use the FAST FORWARD, FORWARD and REVERSE buttons to set the
correct time. The AM indicator to the left of the digital display will show
when the clock is reading AM time.
You can select two different wake times for music or alarm to turn on
automatically. WAKE 1 and 2 controls are located on top of the unit
behind the SNOOZE bar.
1. Slide switch to SET position. The display will change to wake time.
2. Use the FAST FORWARD, FORWARD and REVERSE buttons as needed
until you reach your desired AM or PM wake time.
For music, select an AM or FM station and then turn the radio off. Set
wake time and then slide the switch to MUSIC. For Alarm, set wake time
and then slide switch to ALARM position.
If a wake time is set, an indicator in the display lights and the unit turns
on in the chosen mode (alarm or music) at the set time for approximately
one hour. To turn off the wake mode, slide the switch to OFF or press the
NOTE: If both Wake 1 and Wake 2 controls are in the SET position,
the time of day is displayed.

minutes by pressing the SNOOZE button. When the wake mode activates
again, you can turn the unit off or use SNOOZE button for up to 59
minutes. The radio or alarm will then turn itself off after about an hour.
