CONVENTIONAL OPERATION 3

Man Down Emergency Call

The man down emergency call function transmits an emergency call automatically, after the transceiver laying down in a horizontal 3 position for apre-settime period. (The optionalUT-113MAN DOWN UNIT is required.)

After the emergency call, the transceiver performs transmission and reception alternately with the following conditions:

-Transmits the microphone signals.

-Receives the signal and emits audio.

When the emergency cancel code is received, the function is cancelled.

IMPORTANT!: Set an emergency channel individually, to providecertain emergency call operation is recommended.

4 OPTIONAL UNIT INSTALLATIONOptional unit installation

Install the optional unit as follows:

qRotate [VOL] to turn the power OFF, and remove the battery pack. (p. 3)

wRemove the unit cover.

NOTE: Use a flat head screw driver or a similar flat instru-

ment, and insert into the hollow of the chassis, then lift and

take away the unit cover. (The removed cover cannot be used

again.)

e Install the unit as shown below.

*This illustration is described with the UT-110.

rReplace the unit cover and the battery pack, then rotate [VOL] to turn the power ON.

NOTE: The optionalUT-109/UT-110SCRAMBLER UNITS requiressome PC board modifications. Please refer to the additional in-stallation as at right.

5 BATTERY CHARGING

Battery charging

Prior to using the transceiver for the first time, the battery pack must be fully charged for optimum life and operation.

CAUTION: To avoid damage to the transceiver, turn it OFF whilecharging.

Recommended temperature range for charging: +10°C to +40°C

- The Li-Ionbattery functions within–20°Cto +60°C

Use the specified chargers (BC-119N,BC-121NandBC-160).NEVER use another manufacturer’s charger.

Use the optional AC adapter. NEVER use another manufacturer’s AC adapter.

Recommendation:

Charge the supplied battery pack for a maximum of up to 10 hours. Li-Ionbatteries are different fromNi-Cdbatteries in that it is not necessary to completely charge and discharge them to prolong the battery life. Therefore, charging the battery in intervals, and not for extended periods is recommended.

BATTERY CHARGING 5

Caution

R DANGER Charge the specified Icom batteries only.

Only tested and approved for use with genuine Icom batteries. Fire and/or explosion may occur when a third party battery pack or counterfeit product is charged.

CAUTION! NEVER insert battery pack/transceiver (with the bat-5 tery pack attached) with wet or soiled into the charger. This may result in corrosion of the charger terminals or damage to the charger. The charger is not waterproof and water can easily get into it.

NEVER incinerate used battery packs. Internal battery gas may cause an explosion.

NEVER immerse the battery pack in water. If the battery pack becomes wet, be sure to wipe it dry immediately (particularly the battery terminals) BEFORE attaching it to the transceiver. Otherwise, the terminals will become corroded, or cause connection failure, etc.

NEVER short the terminals of the battery pack. Also, current may flow into nearby metal objects, such as a necklace, etc. Therefore, be careful when carrying with, or placing near metal objects, carrying in handbags, etc.

AVOID leaving the battery pack in a fully charged, or completely discharged condition for long time. It causes shorter battery life. In case of leaving the battery pack unused for a long time, it must be kept safely after discharge, or use the battery until the battery indicator appears, then remove it from the transceiver.

If your battery pack seems to have no capacity even after being charged, fully charge the battery pack again. If the battery pack still does not retain a charge (or very little), a new battery pack must be purchased.
