Assure that the radio is unlocked, using the LOCK switch (24) on </p><p>right side of the radio by pushing it down, to the OFF position. Thisswitch can be used to lock the radio when it is not in use or whentraveling. (Note that this does not deactivate the alarm feature).</p><p>2. Assure that the antenna gain switch (17), on the left side of the radio is in the high-gain, H, position.</p><p>TURNING THE E100 ON AND OFF The E100 can be turned on by the two methods shown below. To turnit off, press the POWER/SLEEP button (3).</p><p>1. Battery Saver/Timer Method Perform a quick, short press of the POWER/SLEEP button (3). Thisturns the radio on with 120 in the display and causes the radio toshut off automatically after 120 minutes. The sleep timer symbol,</p><p>(35), also appears in the display. To change the automatic shutoff time from 120 minutes to a time of your preference, use theUp/Hour or Down/Min. buttons (5,6) immediately after turning onthe radio. This allows selection of 1 120 minutes of playtimebefore automatic shut-off occurs. The number of minutes that youlast set are also used the next time the radio is turned on.</p><p>8</p><p>WHAT THE E100 INCLUDES Earbud style earphones Batteries Carrying pouch</p><p>NOTE: In the instructions below, numbers in parenthesis ( ),refer to the diagrams.</p><p>INSTALLING BATTERIES Install 2 AA alkaline batteries into the battery compartment (25),observing the battery polarity diagram on the back of the radio.To remove the battery compartment cover, apply thumb pressure and slide it towards the bottom of the radio.</p><p>SELECTING AND USING AN AC ADAPTOR (MAINS ADAPTOR) - (not included)Visit our web site, www.etoncorp.com, or Contact etn Corporationfor information regarding selection of a proper AC adaptor.</p><p>SIGNAL STRENGTH AND BATTERY STRENGTH INDICATOR When the radio is turned off, the upper left corner of the display (2)shows battery strength on the 15 scale (28), with the triangle pointer(33) under the battery symbol (26) on the far left side of the scale.When the radio is turned on, the pointer is under the antenna symbol(27) and the 1-5 scale shows relative signal strength.</p></li><li><p>11</p><p>E100 OPERATION MANUAL</p><p>10</p><p>BASIC RADIO OPERATION continued</p><p>SETTING UP AM AND FM OUTSIDE OF NORTH AMERICA You can skip this section if you are in North America and just purchasedthe E100. It is already set-up in the factory for use in North America.If you travel to other world regions, make the changes below as necessary.</p><p>Outside of North America, AM stations (MW in the E100s display) arespaced in 9 KHz tuning steps. The FM frequency range may be differentfrom that used in North America, e.g. like that used in Japan, 76-108MHz.To make these changes please see the instructions titled SYSTEM SETCODE TABLE, on pages 21-22.</p><p>TUNING IN STATIONS Four Ways to Tune in Stations Below, four ways to tune stations are described. They are RegularTuning, Auto-scan Tuning, Direct Frequency Entry and Fine Tuning.</p><p>1. REGULAR TUNING (also called manual tuning)Quick, short presses of the Up/Hour-Down/Min. buttons (5,6)enables tuning up or down frequency.</p><p>2. AUTO-SCAN TUNINGPressing the Up/Hour or Down/Min. buttons (5,6) for just over 1second enables automatic scan-tuning. The radio will then auto-matically stop on the next station encountered. Use the Up/Hourbutton to auto-scan upward in frequency and the Down/Min. buttonto auto-scan downward in frequency.</p><p>2. Timer-Defeat Method This method defeats the automatic 120 minute timer and causesthe radio to stay on until deliberately turned off, until the batteriesdrain or indefinitely if used with an AC adaptor. Hold down thePOWER button for about 3 seconds, then release. Note that 120and the sleep timer symbol do not appear when this method isused.</p><p>VOLUME AND TONE CONTROLS The volume control (23), labeled VOLUME, is located on the right </p><p>side of the radio. To change the volume, rotate the volume controlknob.</p><p> The tone control (22), on the right side of the radio is labeled LOW/HIGH. Use the position that you like best.</p><p>SELECTING FM, AM OR SHORTWAVE After turning on the E100, pressing the button labeled FM/MW/SWBand (11), allows selection of FM, AM and SW. Note that when theAM band is selected, the display shows MW, not AM. The frequencydigits (36) appear in the lower portion of the display.. The local stationsof the area that you are currently in will be heard on AM and FM.Shortwave stations from around the world will be heard on SW.</p><p>BASIC RADIO OPERATION continued</p></li><li><p>6 CLOCK AND ALARM FEATURES BASIC RADIO OPERATION continued</p><p>13</p><p>E100 OPERATION MANUAL</p><p>12</p><p>SETTING THE CLOCK The factory has set the clock to function as a 24-hour format clock.If you prefer a 12 hour, AM/PM clock format, see the section titledCHANGING THE CLOCK FROM 24 TO 12 HOUR FORMAT, on page 22.</p><p>To set the clock:1. Turn the radio off. The clock digits appear in the lower part of the </p><p>display (43).</p><p>2. Press/release the button labeled Time Set (15). The clocks digits flash in the display.</p><p>3. Within 5 seconds, set the hour using the Up/Hour button and the minutes using the Down/Min. button. Make sure that AM or PM(32) appear in the display, to the left of the time, if your clock isset up in the 12 hr. AM/PM format.</p><p>4. Within 5 seconds of finishing, press/release the Time Set button twice or just wait until the clock digits stop flashing.</p><p>SETTING THE ALARM Set the alarm with the instructions below. Note that the alarm mustbe activated to function. After setting the alarm time, be sure to readthe next section titled ACTIVATING AND DEACTIVATING THE ALARM.The alarm will wake you to the last radio station tuned, unless set forFavorite Station Wake-Up (Use system set code 01. See page 21).</p><p>When the alarm activates, it turns the radio on and the alarm activationsymbol (31) appears flashing in the display. The radio will play for 30minutes, until you turn it off or until you press the SNOOZE/LIGHTbutton (see USING THE SNOOZE FEATURE, below).</p><p>3. DIRECT FREQUENCY ENTRY When the desired frequency is known, it can be entered via thenumeric keypad (14) and the Enter button (13). First, make surethat the correct band is selected - AM, FM or SW.</p><p>Most AM and Shortwave frequencies are designated in kilohertz(KHz), e.g. 810 KHz or 9475 KHz. All FM frequencies are designatedin megahertz (MHz), e.g. 102.9 MHz. To enter such frequencies:</p><p>1. Press/release the Enter (13) button.2. Enter the frequency using the numeric keypad.</p><p>Sometimes Shortwave frequencies are designated in megahertz(MHz). If you encounter such a shortwave frequency and it has lessthan three digits after the decimal point (e.g. 15.10 MHz or 6.92MHz), then use the following method to enter it. However, if thereare three digits after the decimal point (e.g. 15110 MHz or 5.975MHz), use the method described previously.</p><p>1. Press/release the Enter (13) button.2. Enter the frequency using the numeric keypad.3. Press/release the Enter button again.</p><p>4. FINE TUNING The FINE TUNING control (4) is located on the right side of theradio. It tunes in 1 Kilohertz steps in AM and Shortwave and .05Megahertz steps in FM. Use it to fine-tune stations to your liking,or use it as you would a tuning knob.</p></li><li><p>7 WORKING WITH MEMORY CLOCK AND ALARM FEATURES continued</p><p>To set the alarm:1. Turn the radio off. The alarm clock digits (30) appear in the upper </p><p>right corner of the display.</p><p>2. Press/release the button labeled Time Set twice. The alarm clocks digits flash in the display.</p><p>3. Within 5 seconds, set the hour using the Up/Hour button and the minutes using the button. Make sure that AM or PM (29) appearin the display if your clock is set up in the 12 hr. AM/PM format.</p><p>4. Within 5 seconds of finishing, press the Time Set button once or just wait until the alarm digits stop flashing.</p><p>USING THE SNOOZE FEATURE When the alarm activates and turns the radio on, the alarm activationsymbol (31) appears flashing in the display. While it is flashing,press/release the SNOOZE/LIGHT button (10). The radio will turn offand then turn on again in 10 minutes. This process can be repeated 3 times.</p><p>ACTIVATING AND DEACTIVATING THE ALARM The alarm is activated and deactivated by pressing the buttonlabeled Alarm (9). When it is activated, the alarm activation symbol(31) appears in the display. When this symbol is not in the display,it is deactivated. Note that once the alarm turns the radio on, withthe alarm symbol flashing, except for the SNOOZE/LIGHT button,the radios controls will not function until the ON/OFF-TIMER buttonis pressed.</p><p>15</p><p>E100 OPERATION MANUAL</p><p>14</p><p>At the factory, the E100 is set up with 8 pages of memory, eachpage holding 25 frequencies. This enables storing of 200 frequenciesinto memory. This factory setting can be changed and tailored toyour personal needs or can be left as-is. When first learning to storestations into memory, we suggest using the factory setting. Tochange the factory setting, see the section CUSTOMIZING MEMORYPAGES on page 20. Otherwise, follow the instructions below to storeyour favorite frequencies into memory using this original factorymemory set-up.</p><p>STORING STATIONS INTO MEMORY The instructions below show you how to store stations (frequencies)into the currently selected memory page.</p><p>1. Turn on the radio.</p><p>2. Tune to the desired station.</p><p>3. Press/release the Mem.&amp;Edit button (15). Note that the memory number digits (38) flash in the upper right corner of the display.The memory page number, P#, also appears, but does not flash.</p><p>4. Within 5 seconds use the numeric keypad to enter the memory number that you wish to store the station into (In the factorysoriginal memory setting, there are 25 memories per page. Youwould therefore enter a number between 01 and 25).</p><p>5. Within 5 seconds press the Mem.&amp;Edit button, or wait...</p></li></ul>
