*Important Notice Regarding Solar Operation:
The built-in solar panel can be used to directly power the radio even if the internal batteries are
dead! The solar panel must face direct sunlight to get enough energy to operate the radio's
speaker. If you cannot position the radio in direct sunlight, try to use the earphones. Earphones
require less energy to operate than the speaker does. When switching to solar power always
start with the volume control at the minimum position. The higher you turn the volume the more
light you will need.
