RF Interference Warning
This is a Class A product. In a domestic environment this product may cause radio interference, in which 
case the user may be required to take adequate measures.
FCC Compliance
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device pursuant 
to Part 15 of FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful 
interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This unit generates, uses, and 
can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, 
may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area 
is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case the user, at his own expense, will be required to take 
whatever measures may be required to correct the interference.
