DX-350 AM,FM,LW,SW1-9 12-Band Portable Receiver
(200-0209A)                Choosing A Power Supply    Faxback Doc. # 46959

You can power the receiver using either:

    Four AA batteries

    Standard AC power (with an optional AC adapter)

    12-volt DC vehicle power (with an optional DC adapter)

Installing Batteries

You need four AA batteries (not supplied) to power your receiver.  For
the best results, we recommend alkaline batteries, such as RadioShack
Cat. No. 23-552.

CAUTIONS:  Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended
           type.

           Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries
           (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable
           batteries of different capacities.

1.  Open the battery compartment by pushing the cover in the direction of
    the arrow.

2.  Install four AA batteries in the battery compartment as indicated by
    the polarity symbols (+/-) mark on the back of the receiver.
    Place the batteries on top of the ribbon so you can easily lift them
    out later.

3.  Replace the cover.

Using Standard AC Power

You can power the receiver from standard AC power with an AC adapter
(such as Cat. No. 273-1454, not supplied).

Insert the adapter's small connector into the receiver's DC 6V jack.
Then plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.  Internal batteries
automatically disconnect.

CAUTION: The recommended adapter supplies 6 volts DC and delivers at least
         150 milliamps with its center tip set to negative. Using an 
         adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the
         receiver or the adapter.

Using A Vehicle Battery

With a DC adapter (such as Cat. No. 14-844, not supplied), you can operate
the receiver in a car, boat, or recreational vehicle equipped with a
12-volt DC, negative-ground electrical system.

Insert the adapter's barrel plug into the receiver's DC 6V jack.  Set the
adapter's 6V/9V selector to 6V.  Then plug the other end of the adapter
into the vehicle's cigarette-lighter socket.  Internal batteries
automatically disconnect.

CAUTIONS:  The recommended adapter supplies 6 volts DC and delivers at
           least 300 milliamps with its center tip set to negative.  Using
           an adapter that does not meet the specifications could damage 
           the receiver or the adapter.

           Do not let the adapter's barrel plug contact any metal parts of
           the vehicle when you plug the adapter into the lighter socket.
           This can damage the adapter or the vehicle's electrical system.
