R"9#40+0)ýR"

If you use the CB in a vehicle, mount it securely to avoid damage to the CB or vehicle or injury to anyone in the vehicle during sudden starts or stops.

Do not mount the CB where it could damage or interfere with the operation of any passive restraint safety device (an airbag or seat belt).

."%#76+10".

If you cannot reach behind the mounting surface to attach the nuts on the bolts or machine screws, use the supplied plain washers and self-tappingscrews.

3.Attach the holder at the mounting location using the supplied machine screws, spring washers, plain washers, and nuts.

/1706+0)"6*'"64#05%'+8'4

The most common mounting location for this CB is under a vehicle’s dashboard. However, if you plan to use the CB as a base station, you can place it on a desk, shelf, or table (see “Using the Transceiver as a Base Station” on Page 6).

If you are mounting the CB in a vehicle, choose a location where:

You can easily reach the CB.

Wires and cables are clear of the vehicle’s pedals or other moving parts.

The CB is not directly in front of heating vents.

All wires and cables can reach their connection points.

Follow these steps to mount the CB using the supplied hardware.

1.Using the mounting bracket as a template, mark the positions for the screw holes on the mounting surface.

2.In each marked location, drill a small starter hole. .#

3.Mount the bracket to the mounting surface with the supplied 5 mm bolts, spring washers, plain washers, and nuts.

4.Peel the backings off the

adhesive on the back of the supplied rubber washers and

attach the washers to the mounting holes on the CB. Then

attach the CB to the mounting bracket using the mounting knobs.

There are many different types of CB antennas for mobile CBs. Each type has its own benefits, so choose the one that best meets your needs. Your local RadioShack store sells a wide variety of antennas.

When you choose an antenna, keep in mind that, for the best performance, you should mount the antenna: .#

as high as possible on the vehicle

as far as possible from sources of electrical noise

vertically

Once you choose an antenna, follow its mounting instructions. Then route the cable to the transceiver and connect the cable to the ANTENNA jack on the back of the transceiver.

Antenna

To take advantage of your radio’s maximum range, adjust the antenna’s Standing Wave Ratio (SWR) using an SWR meter (not supplied).

Follow the instructions supplied with the SWR meter and antenna to adjust your antenna’s SWR to the lowest possible value. SWR values of 2.0:1 are generally acceptable, with readings of 1.5:1 or lower being more desirable.

."%#76+10".

Avoid routing the cable next to sharp edges or moving parts, which might damage the cable.

Do not run the cable next to power cables or other radio antenna cables.

Do not run the cable through the engine compartment or other areas that produce extreme heat.

You can connect an optional microphone or earphone with a 3/32-inch(2.5mm) mini plug and a1/8-inch(3.5mm) plug to theMIC/EAR jacks on the front of the CB. To avoid feedback, do not connect the microphone/earphone’s3/32- inch (2.5 mm) plug to only theMIC jack in CB mode.

To connect a headset with Voice Activated operation, we recommend you check the response sensitivity of the VOX circuit before installation. Different Voice Activation devices provide different performance results.

Do not use an earphone with your transceiver when operating a motor vehicle in or near traffic. Doing so can create a traffic hazard and could be illegal in some areas.

If you use an earphone with your transceiver be very careful. Do not listen to a continuous broadcast. Even though some earphones/headphones let you hear some outside sounds when listening at normal volume levels, they still can present a traffic hazard.

R"9#40+0)ýR"

Use extreme caution when you install or remove a base station CB antenna. If the antenna starts to fall, let it go! It could contact overhead power lines. If the antenna touches a power line, contact with the antenna, mast, cable, or guy wires can cause electrocution and death. Call the power company to remove the antenna. Do not attempt to do so yourself!

You can easily view your current heading at a glance. There are eight cardinal points on the display — north, northeast, east, southeast, south, southwest, west, northwest. Calibration helps the compass better separate the earth’s magnetic field from the magnetic field generated by external influences (such as your vehicle), providing more accurate heading information.

Calibrate the compass anytime you move it, or whenever distortion continuously appears. Before calibration, peel off the backing on one side of the supplied tape and attach the tape to the back of the compass, then mount the compass by peeling off the backing on the other side of the tape, then press the compass onto the level mounting surface, with the compass’ arrow facing up and pointing to the front. Do not mount the compass upside down.

1.Hold down CAL for a second. All eight cardinal points flash.

2.Drive your vehicle in two complete circles. Be sure your vehicle is on level ground, in an open area, such as a parking lot.

3.Press CAL to confirm calibration

You must complete the circles on level ground and press CAL within 10 minutes. Or, start from Step 1 again.

If an error is found during calibration, ;h appears for a few seconds. Move the compass to another place and start from Step 1 again.

After calibration, the current compass heading displays. For example, if the compass heading is south, the south cardinal point appears. Or, if the compass heading is northeast-north,the northeast cardinal point appears and the north cardinal point flashes.

The height of the antenna’s mounting location — the higher the antenna, the better the signal’s range

The surrounding terrain — mountains and tall buildings limit the range

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) does not require you to have a license to operate this CB radio. However, you must know Part 95 of FCC Rules. It explains the proper operation of a Class D citizen’s band transceiver. We enclosed a copy of Part 95 with your CB radio.

To be safe and sure:

Never open your CB radio’s case.

Never change or replace anything in your CB radio.

Your CB radio might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To determine whether your CB is causing the interference, turn off your CB. If the interference goes away, your CB is causing it. Try to eliminate the interference by:

moving your CB away from the receiver

contacting your local RadioShack store for help

This device complies with Part 15 of the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

4'&7%+0)"01+5'

Because your CB is exceptionally quiet, any noise you hear is probably from an external source in your vehicle such as the alternator, another radio or spark plugs.

The transceiver uses an ANL (Automatic Noise Limiter) circuit to reduce noise. However, if possible, try to eliminate noise by finding its source.

You can determine the noise’s source by turning off the engine and operating the CB with your vehicle’s ignition set to ACC. If the noise is reduced, the problem is in your vehicle’s ignition or electrical system.

Here are a few hints to help you reduce or eliminate such noise:

Make all CB power and antenna wires as short as possible.

Route the power wires away from the antenna wires.

Be sure that the chassis ground connection is secure.

Replace old ignition wires with new, high-voltage,noise suppression wires.

Install noise suppressors on your spark plugs, or install new spark plugs that have built-innoise suppressors.

If problems persist, check your alternator/generator and regulator gauges. You can reduce the noise from these sources by using bypass capacitors at the various output voltage points.

Your local RadioShack store has a wide selection of noise suppression accessories.

Care

."%#76+10".

Do not use a fuse with ratings other than those specified. Doing so might damage your CB.

The CB’s 2-ampin-linefuse helps protect your CB from power surges and short circuits. When replacement is required, use a2-amp,slow-blowglass fuse..#

1.Make sure the power source and CB are both off.

2.Hold the fuse holder by both ends, push the ends together, twist one end counterclockwise, then pull them apart.

3.Remove the old fuse. If it is blown, insert a new one of the same type and rating. If it is not blown, reinsert it.
