PRECAUTIONS

RCAUTION! NEVER hold the transceiver so that the antenna is very close to, or touching exposed parts of the body, especially the face or eyes, while transmitting. The transceiver will perform best if the microphone is 5 to 10 cm (2 to 4 in.) away from the lips and the transceiver is vertical.

RCAUTION! NEVER operate the transceiver with a headset or other audio accessories at high volume levels.

RCAUTION! NEVER short the terminals of the battery pack.

DO NOT push PTT when not actually desiring to transmit.

AVOID using or placing the transceiver in direct sunlight or in areas with temperatures below–30°C(–22°F)or above +60°C (+140°F).

The basic operations, transmission and reception of the transceiver are guaranteed within the specified operating temperature range. However, the LCD display may not be operate correctly, or show an indication in the case of long hours of operation, or after being placed in extremely cold areas.

DO NOT modify the transceiver for any reason.

Optional unit installation should be done at authorized Icom service center only.

The waterproof capability of the transceiver cannot be guaranteed if you install an unit yourself, or have it done at a nonauthorised dealer/service center.

BE CAREFUL! TheIC-F70/F80series transceivers employ waterproof construction, which corresponds to IPX waterproof specification, Grade 7 (1 m depth for 30 min.). However, once the transceiver has been dropped, waterproofing cannot be guaranteed due to the fact that the transceiver may be cracked, or the waterproof seal damaged, etc.

For U.S.A. only

CAUTION: Changes or modifications to this transceiver, not expressly approved by Icom Inc., could void your authority to operate this transceiver under FCC regulations.

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 the power OFF while charging.

Recommended temperature range for charging: +10°C to +40°C (+50°F to +104°F)

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

Use the specified AC adapter. NEVER use another manufacture’s adapter.

Recommendation:

Charge the supplied battery pack for a maximum of up to 10 hours. Li-Ionbatteries are different from NiCd batteries 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 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 battery pack attached) in a wet or soiled condition 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 BEFORE attaching it to the transceiver.

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 batteries still do not retain a charge (or very little), new battery pack must be purchased.

10 SAFETY TRAINING INFORMATION

Your Icom radio generates RF electromagnetic energy during transmit mode. This radio is designed for and classified as “Occupational Use Only”, meaning it must be used only during the course of employment by individuals aware of the hazards, and the ways to minimize such

hazards. This radio is NOT intended for use by the “General Population” in an uncontrolled environment.

This radio has been tested and complies with the FCC RF exposure limits for “Occupational Use Only”. In addition, your Icom radio complies with the following Standards and Guidelines with regard to RF energy and electromagnetic energy levels and evaluation of such levels for exposure to humans:

FCC OET Bulletin 65 Edition 97-01Supplement C, Evaluating Compliance with FCC Guidelines for Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields.

American National Standards Institute (C95.1-1992),IEEE Standard for Safety Levels with Respect to Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, 3 kHz to 300 GHz.

American National Standards Institute (C95.3-1992),IEEE Recommended Practice for the Measurement of Potentially Hazardous Electromagnetic Fields– RF and Microwave.

The accessories (antennas, batteries, belt clips, speakermicrophone, etc. that is listed on Pages 37–38)are authorized for use with this product. Use of accessories other than those specified may result in RF exposure levels exceeding the FCC requirements for wireless RF exposure.

To ensure that your expose to RF electromagnetic energy is within the FCC allowable limits for occupational use, always adhere to the following guidelines:

C AU TIO N

DO NOT operate the radio without a proper antenna attached, as this may damaged the radio and may also cause you to exceed FCC RF exposure limits. A proper antenna is the antenna supplied with this radio by the manufacturer or antenna specifically authorized by the manufacturer for use with this radio.

DO NOT transmit for more than 50% of total radio use time (“50% duty cycle”). Transmitting more than 50% of the time can cause FCC RF exposure compliance requirements to be exceeded. The radio is transmitting when the TX indicator lights red. You can cause the radio to transmit by pressing the “PTT” switch or VOX function.

ALWAYS keep the antenna at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) away from the body when transmitting and only use the Icombelt-clipslisted on page 37 when attaching the radio to your belt, etc., to ensure FCC RF exposure compliance requirements are not exceeded. To provide the recipients

of your transmission the best sound quality, hold the antenna at least 5 cm (2 inches) from your mouth, and slightly off to one side.

The information listed above provides the user with the information needed to make him or her aware of RF exposure, and what to do to assure that this radio operates with the FCC RF exposure limits of this radio.

SAFETY TRAINING INFORMATION 10

Electromagnetic Interference/Compatibility

During transmissions, your Icom radio generates RF energy that can possibly cause interference with other devices or systems. To avoid such interference, turn off the radio in areas where signs are posted to do so. DO NOT operate the transmitter in areas that are sensitive to electromagnetic radiation such as hospitals, aircraft, and blasting sites.

Occupational/Controlled Use

The radio transmitter is used in situations in which persons are exposed as consequence of their employment provided those persons are fully aware of the potential for exposure and can exercise control over their exposure.
