AM Band radio stations are assigned broadcast
frequencies between 540 and 1700 Kilohertz
(KHz). AM transmissions leave the antenna in
two types of radio waves - ground waves and
sky waves. Ground waves stay close to the
ground and can be picked up by receivers in the
local area, Sky waves go into the sky and pass
thru the ionosphere into outer space. Some sky
waves have a tendency to “bounce” back from
the ionosphere (especially during the evening
hours) and can be picked up by distant receivers.
This “AM ACCENT” switch allows:
Maximum selectivity of adjacent stations in
the NORMAL position.
Improved audio delity of strong local
stations when in the WIDE positon.
NOTE: In the WIDE position, you may encounter
beat and whistle noises due to adjacent-channel
stations in the AM band. This problem may be
particularly noticeable during nighttime reception.
If this occurs, switch to NORMAL positon.
FM Band radio stations broadcast on assigned
frequencies between 88 and 108 Megahertz
(MHz). FM broadcasts are higher frequencies
and offer less static and interference from
Power Supply
This Two-Way portable radio operates on AC
Household power or 6 “D” size batteries with
automatic AC/DC switching. The batteries are
not included with radio and power cord are
house in a compartment on the back of the radio.
1. Gently place the radio on its front with the
bottom facing you.
2. Remove the battery/cord storage
compartment door by releasing the three
compartment door latches then swing door
toward you and off
3. Insert the 6 “D” size batteries into the
compartment as indicated on the panel
inside the compartment. Be sure the +
(cap) end of each battery is installed in the
direction shown in the battery outline. Insert
“bottom row” of batteries rst then slide the
“top row” under the BATTERY STRAP from
the left side of cabinet.
4. Replace the compartment door by rst
placing the bottom securing tabs into their
receptacles, then swing door into position
and press until the three latches “snap” into
NOTE: After a portable radio has been used
extensively in battery operation, the quality of
the sound may deteriorate or the loudness may
decrease. When this happens, the very rst thing to
suspect is run-down batteries.
Further conrmation that the batteries are run down
can be made by changing to AC line cord operation.
If the sound quality improves the batteries are run
down and should be replaced with new batteries.
Your SUPERADIO offers exceptional battery life
with standard “D” size batteries. Alkaline batteries,
although more expensive, offer increased battery life
over standard cells.
Since few batteries are actually “leakproof”, always
remove batteries, (even if new) when storing product
unused for over 30 days or using AC continually.
For shorter periods of AC operation (up to 30 days)
batteries may remain in product.
Always remove worn-out batteries as they may
leak chemicals which will damage the electronic
components and cabinet. When discarding batteries,
be sure to dispose of them in the proper manner,
according to your state and local regulations. ‘
Remove power cord from compartment and plug
into any 120-volt AC household outlet. An opening in
the compartment door has been provided to permit
AC operation with the door in place. Your radio will
automatically convert from battery to AC operation.
When nished using radio on AC, be sure to switch
POWER ON-OFF switch to OFF. Removing plug
from household outlet without switching radio to OFF
will automatically revert operation to battery power.
Battery Strap
AM -The BUILT-IN ANTENNA (200 mm Ferrite Rod) is somewhat directional, and on weak
stations it may be necessary to rotate the radio for best reception.
The FM WHIP antenna is not used for AM reception.
FM - The WHIP ANTENNA may be positioned anywhere within an 18O degree arc and is capable
of rotating 360 degrees. To use, lift and extend the WHIP to its fullest length. For distant stations, it
may be necessary to adjust the WHIP antenna’s position for best reception.
NOTE: To avoid damaging the WHIP, always lower its sections one at a time starting with the
largest diameter. Never lower the WHIP from the tip end since buckling or bending is possible. Be
sure the slot provided in the base of the swivel antenna is positioned properly before lowering the
WHIP into its holder clip.
The whip antenna has been designed so that it is easily replaced in the event it is damaged. The
antenna’s mounting post goes through a hole in the cabinet top and is held in place by a single
screw through the cabinet back. Simply remove the screw and slide the post out of the cabinet
top. To install the replacement, reverse the procedure.
Although the radio normally provides excellent reception utilizing its built-
in antennas, it offers the additional capability of connecting outside AM
or FM antennas to the EXTERNAL ANTENNA terminals on the cabinet
back. External antennas can be used in poor reception areas (inside steel
and concrete buildings) or to improve reception of distant stations. The
antenna required for FM differs from the type needed for AM reception.
AM - An AM antenna for outside installation connects to the screw
terminals on the cabinet back marked AM and GND.
FM - You may use your TV antenna or an outside FM antenna. The twin
leads connect to the screw terminals marked FM (300 ohm) and GND.
IMPORTANT: External antennas are available from local parts stores. Follow all safety instructions
(provided with antenna) when installing any outside antenna.
You can be alone in a crowd with
optional headphone that lets you listen
in complete privacy. The radio speakers
are automatically silenced when you plug
headphone into Jack located on the right
side of the cabinet.
NOTE: The Jack is designed to permit use of
stereo headphones with your mono radio but
reception will be heard in mono only.
Before seeking service a simple review of
the step-by-step instructions may eliminate
or clarify your problem.

be more noticeable from distant stations.
Because of the long-range performance of this radio, you may enjoy keeping track of distant
stations you have received.
The Log Scale helps in locating stations by providing a reference point. Just jot down the log scale

outside sources as well as greater audio delity than
AM broadcasts. Range, however, is not as great as
AM because very little, if any, sky-wave reception is
involved at FM frequency range.
AFC (Automatic Frequency Control)
Automatic Frequency Conrol (AFC) works to assure
drift-free FM reception and helps to keep the
radio locked-in on the station to which it is tuned.
AFC works only on FM, it does not affect the AM
operation. Tune to the desired FM station with the
AFC SELECT switch in ON position.
Under certain conditions, you may not wish to
use the AFC. When the desired station frequency
is adjacent to a stronger station, the Automatic
Frequency Control may tune the set to the stronger
station. If this occurs, tune in the desired station with
the AFC switch in OFF position. Should switching to
ON cause the set to detune to the stronger adjacent
station, simply leave the AFC SELECT switch in
OFF position.
The BASS control enables you to increase or
decrease the relative volume of the low-pitched
(bass) sounds from the normal (or “at”) control
The TREBLE control enables you to increase or
decrease the relative volume of the high-pitched
(Treble) sounds from the normal (or “at”) control
NOTE: These Tone Controls have a large built-in
variation range which will enable you to emphasize
the various tonal sounds and alter the music
you are receiving. You may be able to vary the
musical balance of the music until it is almost
unrecognizable. The Tone Controls were designed
with these extreme range variations to enable you to
adjust for your particular listening preference and the
program being received.
The convenient power ON-OFF push button
switch enables you to set the VOLUME, BASS
and TREBLE controls, then turn the radio on or off
without having to reset the controls each time.
Because your radio is designed for long-range
AM reception you will gain added enjoyment
receiving broadcasts from distant AM stations.
You may listen to news, weather, sports, and
other special programming from other cities. A
station log has been included to help you keep
a DX (long distance reception) record of stations
received. Although daytime AM reception is
limited to a maximum of a few hundred miles
(depending on the strength of the radio station,
atmospheric conditions, etc.), at night you may
be able to pick up powerful stations over a
thousand miles away.
This is because AM “sky-wave” signals are
reected off the ionosphere and back to earth in
the nighttime hours.
The number of stations you are able to receive
is a function of many factors.
The following may prove helpful:
1. Although the built-in AM antenna will enable
you to receive many distant stations, your
reception can be improved signicantly with
the addition of an external AM antenna.
2. The dusk to dawn hours are best for long
distance AM reception with sunrise and
sunset the optimum times.
3. Clear winter evenings are normally superior
to summer because the nights are longer
and there is less interference from electrical

Controles y características
Esta radio portátil con Potencia de Doble-Via
funciona con la corriente casera AC/Alterna, o
con 6 pilas tamaño “D”, con un interruptor AC/
DC (Corriente Alterna/Directa) automático. Las
pilas (no incluidas con la radio), y el cordón de
la corriente se guardan en un compartimiento
situado en la parte posterior de la radio.
1. Suavemente ponga la radio “boca abajo” con
la base de frente a Ud.
2. Quite la puertecilla del compartimiento que
guarda las pilas/el cordón soltando los 3
picaportes de la puertecilla, después haga
girar la puertecilla hacia Ud. y fuera.
3. Inserte las 6 pilas tamaño “D” dentro del
compartimiento de la forma indicada en el
diagrama dentro compartimiento. Asegúrese
de que los extremos o signos (+) de cada
pila sean instalados en la dirección indicada
en el esquema. Inserte primeramente las
pilas “del fondo”, después deslice las “de
arriba” debajo del “Battery Strap” (Cintilla de
las Pilas) por el lado izquierdo del mueble.
4. Vuelva a colocar la puertecilla del
compartimiento prirneramente colocando
las trabillas de seguridad dentro de los
receptáculos correspondiente, después haga
girar la puertecilla en posición y presione
hasta que las 3 picaportes “chasqueen” en
su sitio.
AVISO: Después de que una radio portátil haya
estado funcionando extensivemente usando
las pilas, la cualidad del sonido pueda que se
deteriore o la sonoridad tiende a disminuir.
Cuando ésto suceda, lo primero quo debe sospechar
es que las pilas se están agotando.
Para conrmar que las pilas se estén agotando
cambie of funcionamiento con el cordón de la
corriente AC/Alterna. Si la cualidad del sonido
mejorase, las pilas se encuentran gastadas y deben
ser reemplazadas con unas nuevas.
Su SUPERADIO le ofrece una gran longevidad con
las pilas corrientes tamaño “D”. Las pilas alcalinas,
aunque más caras, también le ofrece más duración
que las pilas corrientes.
Ya que muy pocas pilas son hechas a “prueba de
derrame”, siempre quite las pilas (aunque sean
nuevas) cuando no usa el producto por más de 30
días o cuando usa continuamente la energia CA.
Cuando use la corriente AC/Alterna por poco tiempo
(un máximo de 30 dias) las pilas pueden quedarse
en el aparato.
Siempre quite las pilas gastadas porque éstas
pueden derramar elementos químicos dañinos a los
componenetes electrónicos y al mueble. Cuando
deseche las baterías, asegúrese de deshacerse de
ellas en una manera apropiada, de acuerdo con las
regulaciones locales o del estado.
Quite el cordón de la corriente de su compartimiento
y enchúfelo dentrol de cualquier tomacorriente
casero de 120 voltios corriente AC/Alterna. Una
abertura en la puertecilla del compartimiento le
permitirá. Su radio automáticamente convertirá su
función de pilas a corriente AC/Alterna asegúrese de
cambiar el interruptor marcado “POWER ON-OFF”
a la posición “OFF” (Apagado). Una vez que Ud.
desenchufe el enchufe del tomacorriente casero
sin cambiar el interruptor a la posición “OFF”
automáticamente el funcionamiento volverá al uso
de las pilas.
