This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1)

This device may not cause harmful interference; and (2) This device must accept any interference received,

including interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant
to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there
is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Privacy of Communications may not be ensured when using this product.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined
by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for radio or television that is "receiving"
the interference).
• Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the telecommunications equipment and
receiving antenna.
• Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiving antenna is connected.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult your dealer or an experienced
radio/television technician for additional suggestions. Also, the Federal Communications Commission has
prepared a helpful booklet, "How To Identify and Resolve Radio/TV Interference Problems." This booklet is
available from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. Please specify stock number
004-000-00345-4 when ordering copies.
Notice: The changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could
void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
