Internal loop antenna.

Small size, light weight and high reliability. Continuous operation for 12 hours or more on one alkaline battery (LR6/1.5V).

Two battery indicators (green and red). Internal I.D. signal generator for tone squelch.

Compressor/expander system noise reduction circuit.

Avoid placing the unit in areas of extremely high humidity and temperature.

Never open the unit nor touch its internal components.

Clean the unit's exterior periodically with a soft dry cloth. If it gets very dirty, wipe first with a soft damp cloth lightly soaked in a neutral detergent, and then dry with a soft cloth.
