CONNECTING ANANTENNA

To use this CB, you need a mobile or base station antenna. There are many types of antennas for 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. If you are using this CB as a base station, see “Using the CB as a Base Station” on Page 5.

EXT. SP.

CAUTION

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.

Ô NOTEÔ

Do not connect the black wire to a non-metallic(plastic) part, or to any part insulated from the vehicle’s chassis by anon-metallicpart.

Dual band antennas provide optimum reception of CB and WX channels. For mobile installations (car, boat), a nondirectional antenna provides the best CB reception. Mobile antennas use your vehicle’s metal body as a ground plane. If the CB is installed in a boat, your boat’s steel hull is used as a ground plane. Without a steel hull serving as a ground plane, you will not receive maximum efficiency. Before using your CB in a boat, consult with your boat dealer regarding an adequate grounding system.

Keep in mind that for the best performance you should mount the antenna:

USING THE CB AS A BASE STATION

Although this CB is designed for mobile use, you can use it as a base station with an AC power source. Your local RadioShack store carries a wide selection of base station antennas, coaxial antenna cable, connectors, and base station power supplies. For base station installation, you need the following items:

a 12-voltDC power supply that can supply at least 1.5 amps.

base station antenna.

coaxial antenna cable and connectors.

1. Mount the base station antenna as described in its owner’s manual. o

2. Connect the antenna cable to the

ANT. jack on the back of the CB.ANT.

3. Connect the CB’s black POWER Cable wire to the negative(–)terminal

on the DC power supply.

DC Power Supply

Red wire connected to + terminal

Black wire connected to – terminal

4.Connect the CB’s red POWER wire to the positive (+) terminal on the DC power supply.

5.Connect the DC power supply to a standard AC outlet.

CAUTION

Most 12-voltDC power supplies plug into a standard AC outlet to produce DC power. Before connecting your CB to a12-voltDC power supply, read and follow the instructions included with the power supply.

oWARNINGo

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.

5

ÔNOTE Ô

Only rotate SQUELCH until the hissing stops. If you continue to rotate it clockwise, you will be unable to receive any signals.

You may want to purchase an SWR (Standard Wave Ratio) meter to measure your range and signal strength. This will enable you to adjust your antenna for maximum range, and determine the best position for RF GAIN. See your SWR meter owner’s manual for instruction on how to use it.

RECEIVING AND

TRANSMITTING

We recommend you try receiving transmissions before you transmit.

RECEIVING

1.Rotate OFF/VOLUME towardsOFF until it clicks to turn off the CB.

2.Slide CB/WX toCB.

3.Rotate SQUELCH fully counterclockwise.

4.Rotate RF GAIN fully clockwise.

5.Rotate OFF/VOLUME clockwise to turn on the CB. The display lights and the channel number appears. An alert sounds if a weather alert signal is detected (see “Using Digital Weather Alert” on Page 10).

6.To decrease CB sensitivity so you do not hear weak, distant signals, slowly rotate SQUELCH clockwise until the hissing stops. To increase sensitivity and to receive

very weak signals, rotate SQUELCH counterclockwise.

Ô

7.Rotate RF GAIN clockwise to optimize reception

(incoming signal strength). Or, rotate it counterclockwise to decrease signal strength. Ô

8.To tune to a channel, rotate CHANNEL on the radio, or pressUP orDN on the microphone. To quickly scroll through channels in either direction, hold downUP orDN until you reach the desired channel.

TIPS FOR USING YOUR CB

Like most activities, CB radio has its customs and courtesies. The following tips will help you get the most enjoyment from your CB.

BUSINESSUSE

Truck drivers and delivery personnel can learn road and traffic conditions and get assistance in locating destinations. A CB is also good company on long road trips.

On construction crews, a CB quickly pays for itself when you are calling for additional materials or coordinating the activities of different work crews.

For security officers, a CB is more than a convenience

— it is a must for both safety and efficiency.

PERSONALUSE

Keep in touch with home while driving to work, to the store, or to a social activity. Let your family know you are tied up in traffic or that you will stop by the store on the way home.

If you are a two-car(or more) family, CBs are great for communicating with family members while they are in their cars.

Contact friends or neighbors. Find out “what’s happening” or plan a get-together.

Ever have car trouble or run out of gas on the highway? What an assurance it is to be able to call for assistance!

Camping, fishing, and other sports are more fun with a CB. Locate a buddy or find out “what’s cooking” back at camp.

TRANSMISSIONCOURTESY

Wait for a pause in someone else’s transmission before you ask for a break.

If you do not receive an answer to your call after a second attempt, sign off and wait several minutes before trying again.

8

Do not hold down PTT when you are not talking. (This is called dead keying.)

Assist callers with directions, information about road conditions, and any other reasonable requests.

MAXIMUMRANGE

Your CB radio’s transmission range is generally line-of-sight. The maximum range and quality of CB transmissions vary depending on the following conditions:

the type and quality of antenna used.

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.

weather conditions.

the number of nearby CBs operating on the same channel.

standing wave ratio (SWR) between the antenna and the CB.

REDUCINGNOISE

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. You can determine the noise 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.

To reduce or eliminate such noise:

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

Keep the power wires away from the antenna wires.

Be sure the chassis ground connection is secure.

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

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.

9

ÔNOTE Ô

PTT does not work whenCB/WX is set toWX. You can only send transmissions when in CB mode.

You cannot transmit while WX/ ALERT flashes in CB mode.

The alert tones for a Test and EAT (Emergency Action Termination) sound very similar. We suggest you switch to WX mode immediately to listen to the weather broadcast.

Because of atmospheric conditions, you may receive signals that do not contain information relevant to the emergency level. This is normal.

The radio sounds an alert regardless of the channel setting.

The CB will not sound an alert while you are transmitting.

If you are in a rural or fringe area, your radio might be triggered by an alert broadcast in one area, but not be triggered if you travel to another area (even close by).

LISTENING TO THE WEATHER BAND

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) broadcasts local forecast and regional weather information on one or more of seven channels in the US. We have pre-programmedyour CB with all seven of these frequencies.

Channel

Frequency (MHz)

 

 

WX1

162.400

 

 

WX2

162.425

WX3

162.450

 

 

WX4

162.475

WX5

162.500

 

 

WX6

162.525

WX7

162.550

 

 

To listen to a weather broadcast or alert, slide CB/WX toWX. RotateCHANNEL to select a frequency.Ô

To verify reception, your radio must receive a test or emergency alert broadcast. The National Weather Service broadcasts a test alert every week. To find the specific test schedule in your area, contact your local NOAA or National Weather Service office.

USINGDIGITALWEATHERALERT

When in CB mode, the radio automatically sounds an alert if a weather alert signal is detected. This is especially useful when your area is expecting severe weather conditions.

When your local weather station broadcasts a severe weather alert, the CB sounds a tone corresponding to the alert type and WX/ALERT lights.

Alert Type

You Hear

 

 

Warning

Continuous short beeps

 

 

Watch

Three short beeps and a 2

second pause (repeats)

 

Advisory

Two short beeps and a 2

second pause (repeats)

 

 

 

Test

One short beep and a 3 second

pause (repeats)

 

EAT (Emergency

One short beep and a 3 second

Action Termination)

pause (repeats) Ô

 

 

10

DUAL WATCH

To silence the alert tones, press ALERT TONE OFF.

WX/ALERT flashes until you switch to WX mode and listen to the broadcast. Or pressPTT to silence the alert tones soWX/ALERT stops flashing.Ô

To reduce the alert tone levels for subsequent alerts, hold down ALERT TONE OFF for about two seconds while WX/ALERT flashes. The tone stops and WX/ALERT flashes slowly. If the radio receives a new weather alert, three low-level, short beeps sound (regardless of alert type).

To listen to the weather when an alert is received, slide

CB/WX to WX. WX/ALERTturns off.

USINGDUALWATCH

You can set your radio to constantly monitor for emergency (Channel 9) signals. If an emergency signal is received, the CB radio automatically tunes to Channel 9 so you can hear the broadcast. When finished, the radio returns to the previous station. This feature only works in CB mode.

To activate dual watch, press DUAL WATCH.DUAL WATCH lights. Press again to deactivate.

REPLACING THEFUSE

The CB’s in-linefuse protects it from power surges and short circuits. When replacement is required, use a2-amp,fast-actingglass fuse, available at your local RadioShack store.

1.Make sure the vehicle and CB are turned off.

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

Fuse Holders

Fuse

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

4.Push the fuse holder ends together and twist one end clockwise.

Ô NOTEÔ

You cannot transmit while WX/ALERT flashes in CB mode.

CAUTION

Do not use a fuse with ratings other than those specified here. Doing so will make your CB susceptible to electrical damage.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

In the event of a product defect during the warranty period, take the product and the RadioShack sales receipt as proof of purchase date to any RadioShack store. RadioShack will, at its option, unless otherwise provided by law: (a) correct the defect by product repair without charge for parts and labor; (b) replace the product with one of the same or similar design; or (c) refund the purchase price. All replaced parts and products, and products on which a refund is made, become the property of RadioShack. New or reconditioned parts and products may be used in the performance of warranty service. Repaired or replaced parts and products are warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period. You will be charged for repair or replacement of the product made after the expiration of the warranty period.

This warranty does not cover: (a) damage or failure caused by or attributable to acts of God, abuse, accident, misuse, improper or abnormal usage, failure to follow instructions, improper installation or maintenance, alteration, lightning or other incidence of excess voltage or current; (b) any repairs other than those provided by a RadioShack Authorized Service Facility; (c) consumables such as fuses or batteries; (d) cosmetic damage; (e) transportation, shipping or insurance costs; or (f) costs of product removal, installation, set-upservice adjustment or reinstallation.
