Radio and TV Interference Regulations

The Microsoft hardware device(s) can radiate radio frequency (RF) energy. If not installed and used in strict accordance with the instructions given in the printed documentation and/or onscreen help files, the device may cause harmful interference with other radio-communications devices (for example AM/FM radios, televisions, baby monitors, cordless phones, etc.). There is, however, no guarantee that RF interference will not occur in a particular installation. To determine if your hardware device is causing interference to other radio-communications devices, turn off and unplug the device from any external power source. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the device. If this hardware device does cause interference, try the following measures to correct it:

  • Relocate the antenna of the other radio-communications device (for example AM/FM Radios, televisions, baby monitors, cordless phones, etc.) until the interference stops.
  • Move the hardware device farther away from the radio or TV, or move it to one side or the other of the radio or TV.
  • Plug the device into a different power outlet so that the hardware device and radio or TV are on different circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.
  • If necessary, ask your device dealer or an experienced radio-TV technician for more suggestions. For more information about interference issues, go to the FCC Web site at: You can also call the FCC at 1-888-CALL FCC to request Interference and Telephone Interference fact sheets.

This Product is restricted to indoor use only to reduce any potential for harmful interference with licensed operation in the 5.15 to 5.25 GHz frequency range.

Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by Microsoft could void the user’s authority to operate this device.

Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Energy

This device contains radio transmitters and has been designed, manufactured and tested to meet the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada and European guidelines for RF exposure and Specific Absorption Rate.

Model 1793, 1796, 1807, 1824, 1825, 1832: To ensure that your exposure to RF energy generated by the radio transmitters does not exceed the exposure limits set forth by these guidelines, orient the device such that the display side is not directly in contact with your body, such as lying display side down on your lap or upper body.

Model 1707: This device should be installed and operated with minimum distance of 20cm between the radiator and your body.

This device operation in the band 5150‑5250 MHz is only for indoor use to reduce the potential for harmful interference to co‑channel mobile satellite systems. Users are advised that high‑power radars are allocated as primary users (i.e. priority users) of the bands 5250‑5350 MHz and 5650‑5850 MHz and that these radars could cause interference and/or damage to LE‑LAN devices.
