specified by the manufacturer that has the same overload
protection as the original plug.
Outdoor Antenna Grounding If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or
cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810
of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides
information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and
supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an
antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location
of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes,
and requirements for the grounding electrode. See Figure 1.
Lightning Lightning Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and
disconnect the antenna or cable system for added protection
during a lightning storm or when it is left unattended and
unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the
product due to lightning and power line surges.
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.
Overloading Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or
integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of
fire or electric shock.

this product through openings as they may touch dangerous
voltage points or short-out parts that could result in a fire or
electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the product.

opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous
voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service

If the product has been dropped or damaged in any way, and
When the product exhibits a distinct change in performance
this indicates a need for service.
Replacement Parts When replacement parts are required, be
