Your Radio Shack WX 200 Electronic Weather Station with AccuWeather
for Windows Weather Station Software is an example design and 
craftsmanship.  The following suggestions will help you care for your 
weatherstation so you can enjoy it for years.

  Keep the weather station's display unit and connection box dry.  If
  either component gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.  Liquids might
  contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.

  Use and store the weather station only in normal temperature
  environments.  Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic
  devices and distort or melt plastic parts.

  Keep the weather station's display unit and connection box away from
  dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.

  Handle the weather station gently and carefully.  Dropping it can damage
  circuit boards and cases and can cause the weather station to work

  Use only fresh batteries of the required size and type in the display
  unit.  Old batteries can leak chemicals that damage your weather
  station's electronic parts.

  Wipe the weather station with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it
  looking new.  Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong
  detergents to clean the weather station.

Modifying or tampering with the weather station's internal components
can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void
your FCC authorization to operate it.  If your weather station is not
performing as it should, take it to your local Radio Shack store for


CAUTION:  Resetting the weather station also clears all data stored in the
          weather station's memory!

          If the weather station's display locks up or the weather station
          does not work properly, use a pointed object, such as a
          straightened paper clip, to lightly press and release RESET on
          the bottom of the display unit.  All preprogrammed display
          characters appear, then the default time and date (12:00 and
          1/1) appear on the display.

NOTE:  Set the correct date, time, and sea level barometric pressure
       after you reset the weather station.


This weather station complies with the limits for a Class B digital device
as specified in Part 15 of FCC Rules.  These limits provide reasonable
protection against radio and TV interference in a residential area.
However, your equipment might cause TV or radio interference even when
it is operating properly.  To eliminate interference, you can try one
or more of the following corrective measures:

  Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna

  Increase the distance between the weather station and the radio or TV

  Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the weather station
  and the radio or TV

Consult your local Radio Shack store if the problem still exits.

You must use shielded interface cables with this equipment.
