Sparks in such areas could cause
an explosion or fire resulting in
bodily injury or even death.
Blasting Caps and Areas
To avoid possible interference
with blasting operations, turn
your radio off near electrical
blasting caps or in a ‘blasting area’ or in areas posted “Turn Off
Two-Way Radio.” Obey all signs
and instructions.
For Vehicles With an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great
force. Do not place objects, including portable or mobile twoway radios, in the area over the
air bag or in the air bag deployment area. If improperly installed
or placed wireless equipment is
in the air bag deployment area
and the air bag inflates, serious
injury could result.
Do not replace or charge batteries
in a hazardous atmosphere. Contact sparking may occur while installing or removing batteries and
cause an explosion.
Areas with potentially explosive
atmospheres are often, but not always, clearly marked. They include fueling areas such as below
deck on boats, fuel or chemical
transfer or storage facilities, areas
where the air contains chemicals
or particles such as grain, dust, or
metal powders, and any other
area where you would normally
be advised to turn off your vehicle’s engine.

Antennas
Do not use a radio with a damaged antenna. If a damaged antenna comes into contact with the
skin, a minor burn might result.
Batteries
All batteries can cause property
damage, injury, or burns if a conductive material such as jewelry,
keys, or a beaded chain touches
exposed terminals. The material
may complete an electrical circuit
(short circuit) and become quite
hot. Exercise care in handling any
charged battery, particularly when
placing it inside a pocket, purse,
or other container with metal objects.
CAUTION
!
Chargers and Power Cord
To reduce risk of damage to the
supplied battery charger when
disconnecting it from AC power,
pull by the plug rather than the
power cord.
Make sure the power cord is located so that it will not be stepped
on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to damage or stress.
Do not operate the charger with a
damaged cord or plug; replace
them immediately. Do not operate
the charger if it has received a
sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged in any way; contact your local RadioShack store.
10
Do not expose chargers to rain or
snow.
An extension cord should not be
used unless absolutely necessary. Use of an improper extension cord may result in a fire or
electric shock. However, if an extension cord is used, make sure
that:
• The pins and plug of the
extension cord are the same
number, size, and shape as
those on the plug of the
charger.
• The extension cord is properly wired and in good condition.
• The cord size is 18 AWG for
lengths of up to 100 feet,
and 15 AWG for lengths up
to 150 feet.
19-1217.fm Page 11 Tuesday, August 3, 1999 1:18 PM
Do not disassemble your charger. If it does not work; contact
your local RadioShack store. Incorrect reassembly can result in
electric shock or fire.
To reduce risk of injury, use the
charger to charge only the type of
battery recommended in this
Owner’s Manual. Other types of
batteries might burst, resulting in
personal injury or damage.
Use of an attachment not sold or
recommended by RadioShack
can result in a risk of fire, electric
shock, or injury to personnel.
To reduce risk of electric shock,
unplug the charger from the outlet before cleaning. Turning off
controls does not reduce this risk.

13
19-1217.fm Page 14 Tuesday, August 3, 1999 1:18 PM
When the transceiver beeps
about 3 to 4 seconds after you
turn it on or each time you release
PUSH TO TALK, recharge the
battery pack.
Notes:
• A nickel-cadmium battery
pack lasts longer and delivers
more power if you occasionally let it fully discharge. To
do this, use the transceiver
until it beeps when you
release PUSH TO TALK.
• To prevent damaging a
nickel-cadmium battery pack,
never charge it in an area
where the temperature is
above 113°F (45°C) or below
32°F (0°C).
Important: At the end of a rechargeable battery pack’s useful
life, it must be recycled or disposed of properly. Contact your
local, county, or state hazardous
waste management authorities for
information on recycling or disposal programs in your area.
Some options that might be available are: municipal curb-side collection, drop-off boxes at retailers
such as your local RadioShack
14
store, recycling collection centers, and mail-back programs.
Connecting the Antenna
Caution: Always connect the supplied antenna to the transceiver
before you use it.
Thread the supplied flexible antenna clockwise into the top of
the transceiver to attach it, or
counterclockwise to remove it.

Listening Safely
Traffic Safety
To protect your hearing, follow
these guidelines when you use an
earphone.
Do not use an earphone with
your transceiver when operating
a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle
in or near traffic. Doing so can
create a traffic hazard and could
be illegal in some areas.
• Set the volume to the lowest
setting before you begin listening. After you begin listening, adjust the volume to a
comfortable level.
• Do not listen at extremely
high volume levels. Extended
high-volume listening can
lead to permanent hearing
loss.
• Once you set the volume, do
not increase it. Over time,
your ears adapt to the volume level, so a volume level
that does not cause discomfort might still damage your
hearing.
16
If you use an earphone with your
transceiver while riding a bicycle,
be very careful. Do not listen to a
continuous
broadcast.
Even
though some earphones let you
hear some outside sounds when
listening at normal volume levels,
they still can present a traffic hazard.
19-1217.fm Page 17 Tuesday, August 3, 1999 1:18 PM
Setting Frequency Options
Before you can use your transceiver, you must set your transceiver to a VHF business band
frequency you have a license to
use. Then you can select a preset
CTCSS (Continuous Tone Control
Squelch System) frequency and
set your transceiver to use it.
Here is what you need to do to set
your transceiver to use a business
band frequency and CTCSS:
þ Select a business band frequency you have a license to use then
set your transceiver to that frequency (see “Selecting a Business
Band Frequency”
on
Page 18).
À Select a CTCSS frequency then
set your transceiver to the code
that uses that frequency (see “Using a CTCSS Frequency” on
Page 18).
Your transceiver’s default CTCSS
frequency is 100 Hz. You can select one CTCSS frequency at a
time. If you do not want to use a
CTCSS frequency, simply do not
set your transceiver to use one.
About CTCSS
CTCSS helps eliminate interference between different users of
the same frequency, letting you
talk and listen to people who are
using other transceivers set to
the same frequency and CTCSS
code. This is like having a subchannel within a channel, giving
you greater communication flexibility. When you set a CTCSS
code — there are 38 to choose
from — and turn on your transceiver’s CTCSS, the transceiver
transmits a tone with your transmission, letting you communicate
with anyone who has a transceiver set to the same frequency and
code. This tone is too low for you
to hear, but other transceivers
can detect it.
If CTCSS is turned on and set to
the same tone on the receiving
transceiver, it only receives those
transmissions that include the
tone. If two different groups operate transceivers in the same area
on the same frequency, they do
not hear each other’s broadcasts
if they both use CTCSS and each
select a different CTCSS frequency.

Operational Hints
Your transceiver’s range varies
depending on factors such as position, terrain, and battery condition. Buildings absorb transmitted
signals and, if they contain metal,
might completely block the signals. Trees and heavy cloud formations have a similar effect,
though not as severe. If you are
near a lake or the ocean, you
might get excellent range.
To ensure maximum range, operate the transceiver with the battery pack fully charged. As the
voltage decreases, the range decreases.
19-1217.fm Page 21 Tuesday, August 3, 1999 1:18 PM
Care AND Maintenance
Your RadioShack BTX-128 VHF/FM Business Band Transceiver is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions
will help you care for your transceiver so you can enjoy it for years.
• Keep the transceiver dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
• Use and store the transceiver only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic
devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
• Keep the transceiver away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
• Handle the transceiver gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage
circuit boards and cases and can cause the transceiver to work
improperly.
• Use only a battery pack of the required size and type. Battery packs
can leak chemicals that damage your transceiver’s electronic parts.
• Wipe the transceiver with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong
detergents to clean the transceiver.
Modifying or tampering with the transceiver’s internal components can
cause a malfunction and might invalidate your transceiver’s warranty and
void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your transceiver is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
