FCC and other information (for U.S.A. users)

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.
Privacy of communications may not be ensured when using this device.

Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate this device.

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. 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.
  • Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
  • Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
  • Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

Some devices operate at frequencies that may cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, this device should not be placed near or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference is experienced, move this device further away from the TV or VCR. This will often reduce or eliminate interference.
