OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING

ll an outside antenna is connected to your tuner or tuner~pteamplilien be
sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 ol the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1964, provides inlormation with
respect to proper grounding ol the mast and supporting stmcture. grounding
ol the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit. size of grounding
conductors, location oi antenna dlscharge unlt, connection to gruuiidiiig
electrodes, and requlraments lol the grounding electrode.

a. Use No.10 AWG (5.3 mm’) copper. No.8 AWG (8.4 mm”) aluminum,
No.17 AWG 11.0 mm!) copper‘clad steel or bronze wire, or larger, as a
ground wire.

b. Secure antenna lead-in and ground wires to house with stand-oil
insulators spaced truth #6 teet(1.22-1.83 m) apart.

c. Mount antenna discharge unit as close as possible to where lead-in
enters house.

d. Use jumper wire not smaller than No.6 AWG (13.3 mm’l copperr or the
equivalent. when a separate antenna-grounding electrode is used. See NEC

NOTE TO CATV SYSTEM INSTALLER

This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer‘s attention to
more uzu-zz or the national Erectricai code that provides guiueiines ior
proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be
connected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point at
cable entry as practical,

NOTE

The GFP—55511's power cord is supplied with a “polarized" AC plug as required by UL/CSA standards and local
electrical codes, To minimize the risk of electrical shock, and to insure minimal hum from the system, do not
defeat the polarity-insuring leature of the plug (one wide blade and one narrow blade). To prevent electrical

shock, do not use this polarized plug with an extension cord or receptacle, or other outlet, unless the blades can
he flllly inserted to pmvent blade exposure-

CONTROLLING THE GFP-5551l

Please refer to the diagram of the from panel or the (EFF-55511 to identify all the controls and their functions,

AC ON/OFF SWITCH 0 G

The “rockef' AC on/oft switch w controls power to the circuits of the GFP—555ll and to the SWlTCHED G outlets on the
rear panel oi the GFP—5551l. Whenever the GFP~55511 is energized. the red LED 9 will glow. Push the top of the rocker
switch to energize the GFPSSSH. Push the bottom of the rocker switch to turn the unit off.

PHONES ®

The headphone jack is a standard, 1/4-inch, S-contact type which will operate with any conventional set of stereo
headphones It ynll have a get at light-weight stereo headphones, which are generally supplied with a mini—phonoplug,
you may use a stereo phoneplug-to-miniplug adaptor,

The PHONES jack is powered by its own high-quality stereo amplifier, the level from which is governed by the setting
of the volume control . The amplifier driving the PHONES Q jack has been optimized to operate with headphones
having an impedance of 100 ohms up to 2,000 ohms. Although the PHONES @ jack and its internal amplifier will operate

with other headphone impedances, maximum quality will be obtained if headphones with an impedance of approximately
600 ohms are used.

NOTE

Since the volume a control, BASS @ , TREBLE 9 CONTOUR @, TONE IN ®,elc. sheet the level lrom both
the MAIN OUTPUT G jacks and the PHONES a jack, it is advisable to unplug any set of headphones
connected to the PHONES Q jack whenever they are not in use and you are listening to your speakers.
Conversely, if you are listening to your headphones. it is recommended that you turn off your power amplifier lo

deactivate your loudSpeakers. thereby preventing possible interference between the two listening modes or
inadvertent damage to either.
