CAUTION

SAFETY INFORMATION

Your wireless hand-held portable transceiver contains a low power transmitter. When the PTT button is pushed (or the VOX mode is enabled) it sends out radio frequency (RF) signals. The device is authorized to operate at a duty factor not to exceed 50%. In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) adopted RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for hand-held wireless devices.

Important: To maintain compliance with the FCC’ s RF exposure guidelines hold the transmitter at least 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) from your face and speak in a normal voice, with the antenna pointed up and away. If you wear the handset on your body while using the headset accessory, use only the Audiovox supplied carry clip for this product and ensure that the antenna is at least 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) from your body when transmitting. Use only the supplied antenna. Do not use your transceiver with a damaged antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or attachments could damage the transmitter and may violate FCC regulations.

Performance:

Your transceiver will only achieve its maximum operating range when communicating with other transceivers across open and flat areas or between elevated points. Normally occurring environmental factors such as buildings, trees, terrain and weather, or interference from other radio or electrical equipment, may have adverse effects on the transceiver’s effective range. These are not indicative of a fault condition.

Avoid placing the GMRS9010-2CH radio transceiver for prolonged periods of time in direct sunlight or temperatures below -4°F(-20°C) or above 140°F (60°C).

Place the rubber cover on jacks when not in use.

WARNINGS:

Battery Care

Never attempt to charge alkaline or dry cell batteries, as batteries may burst causing personal injury and damage to the product. If rechargeable batteries are used, such as Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH), use only the supplied Audiovox-approved rechargeable batteries. Use of the Audiovox charger (also supplied) with other brands of batteries is not recommended, as battery charging times will vary with different brands. Refer to the Manufacturer’s instructions for charging other brands of batteries.

Battery Disposal

In general, if handled improperly, batteries pose a risk of fire or burns. Do not disassemble, crush, puncture, short external contacts, or dispose of the batteries in fire or water. Dispose of the batteries in a environmentally safe manner and recycle whenever possible.

FCC WARNING

Replacement or substitution of transistors, diodes or other parts of a unique nature, with parts other than those recommended by the manufacturer, may cause a violation of the technical regulations of Part 15 of FCC Rules.

GMRS LICENSE:

USE OF THIS RADIO WITHIN THE UNITED STATES REQUIRES AN FCC GMRS LICENSE. AN INDIVIDUAL 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER, WHO IS NOT A REPRESENTATAIVE OF A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT, IS ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR A GMRS SYSTEM LICENSE.

Powering the transceiver:

Your GMRS9010-2CH radio transceiver operates on five AAA Alkaline batteries. Alkaline batteries will provide slightly better performance than rechargeable batteries (purchased separately). Only Audiovox approved rechargeable batteries should be recharged in the radio transceiver using the charging accessories. This will ensure optimum performance for the GMRS9010-2CH. Battery charging time is typically 6-7 hours for full charge, and 0.5-3 hours for quick charge (depending on existing battery charge). Batteries may get warm during quick charge. Trickle charging will automatically occur after a quick charge of 75%, and may take up to 3-4 hours to achieve and additional 20% charge. Batteries should not get warm during the trickle charge cycle. Use of the Audiovox charging equipment with other brands of rechargeable batteries is not recommended as battery charging times will vary. Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for charging other brands of batteries.

Batteries

There are three methods of powering the GMRS9010-2CH:

1.Alkaline Batteries.

WARNING: Do not attempt to7recharge Alkaline batteries.

2.Audiovox Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries - (Rechargeable NiMH batteries and Charging Adapter included). Use only Audiovox approved rechargeable batteries and charging equipment when charging batteries internal to the unit.

NOTE: To extend battery life, avoid overcharging the batteries

3.Various Brands of Rechargeable Batteries - Use of the Audiovox charger with other brands of rechargeable batteries is not recommended, as battery charging times will vary with different brands of batteries. Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for charging other brands of batteries.

Installing the batteries:

Battery installation is made more convenient when the carry clip is removed. To do this, release the spring latch securing the clip to radio and slide the clip downward and away from the radio body. Next, press down with the thumb at the embossed arrow, slide the battery cover down and lift off the battery cover. Insert five AAA batteries (alternate positive ends (+) toward the right side of the transceiver (starting top-to- bottom).

The following guidelines will improve performance and provide longer operating times for the GMRS9010-2CH:

1.Do not mix old and new batteries.

2.The use of alkaline-type batteries is recommended to provide the longest operating time.

3.Do not mix alkaline, standard (carbon-zinc) or rechargeable batteries.

4.If the unit is not to be used for an extended period of time, remove the batteries. Old or leaking batteries can cause damage to the unit and will void the warranty.
