WARNING !
Before using, be careful never to transmit without
first having connected the antenna (connection
"B" situated on the back panel of the equipment)
or without having set the SWR (Standing Wave
Ratio) ! Failure to do so may result in destruction of
the power amplifier, which is not covered by the
guarantee.

MULTI-NORMS TRANSCEIVER!
See function “F” on page 32 and the European
Norms table on page 50.
The garantee of this transceiver is valid only in the country pf purchase.
Welcome to the world of the new generation of CB radios. The
new PRESIDENT range gives you access to top performance CB
equipment. With the use of up-to-date technology, which guarantees unprecedented quality, your PRESIDENT HARRY II ASC is a
new step in personal communication and is the surest choice for
the most demanding of professional CB radio users. To ensure that
you make the most of all its capacities, we advise you to read
carefully this manual before installing and using your PRESIDENT
HARRY II ASC.
A) INSTALLATION:
a)You should choose the most appropriate setting from a simple and practical point of
view.
b) Your CB radio should not interfere with the driver or the passengers.
MOUNTING
DIAGRAM
c) Remember to provide for the passing and protection of different wires (e.g. power,
antenna, accessory cabling) so that they do not in any way interfere with the driving
of the vehicle.
d) To install your equipment, use the cradle (1) and the self-tapping screws [2] provided
(drilling diameter 3.2 mm). Take care not to damage the vehicle’s electrical system
while drilling the dash board.
e) Choose where to place the microphone support and remember that the microphone cord must stretch to the driver without interfering with the controls of the
vehicle.
- N.B. : As the transceiver has a frontal microphone socket, it can be set into the dash
board. In this case, you will need to add an external loud speaker to improve the
sound quality of communications (connector EXT.SP situated on the back panel: C).
Ask your dealer for advice on mounting your CB radio.

1) WHERE AND HOW TO MOUNT YOUR MOBILE CB RADIO:
2) ANTENNA INSTALLATION:
3) POWER CONNECTION:
a) Choosing your antenna:
-
For CB radios, the longer the antenna, the better its results. Your dealer will be
able to help you with your choice of antenna.
b) Mobile antenna:
.
-
-
English
-
Must be fixed to the vehicle where there is a maximum of metallic surface (ground
plane), away from windscreen mountings.
If you already have a radio-telephone antenna installed, the CB antenna should be
higher than this.
There are two types of antenna: pre-regulated which should be used on a good
ground plane (e.g. car roof or lid of the boot), and
adjustable which offer a much larger range and can be used on a smaller ground
plane (see p 31 § 5, Adjustment of SWR).
For an antenna which must be fixed by drilling, you will need a good contact
between the antenna and the ground plane. To obtain this, you should lightly scratch
the surface where the screw and tightening star are to be placed.
Be careful not to pinch or flatten the coaxial cable (as this runs the risk of break down
and/or short circuiting).
Connect the antenna (B).
c) Fixed antenna:
-
A fixed antenna should be installed in a clear a space as possible. If it is fixed to a mast,
it will perhaps be necessary to stay it, according to the laws in force (you should seek
professional advice). All PRESIDENT antennas and accessories are designed to
give maximum efficiency to each CB radio within the range.

Your PRESIDENT HARRY II ASC is protected against an inversion of polarities. However,
before switching it on, you are advised to check all the connections. Your equipment
must be supplied with a continued current of 12 volts (A). Today, most cars and lorries
are negative earth. You can check this by making sure that the negative terminal of
the battery is connected either to the engine block or to the chassis. If this is not the
case, you should consult your dealer.
WARNING: Lorries generally have two batteries and an electrical installation of 24
volts, in which case it will be necessary to insert a 24/12 volt converter (type CV 24/
12 PRESIDENT) into the electrical circuit. The following connection steps should be
carried out with the power cable disconnected from the set.
Check that the battery is of 12 volts.
Locate the positive and negative terminals of the battery (+ is red and - is black).
Should it be necessary to lengthen the power cable, you should use the same or a
superior type of cable.
It is necessary to connect your CB to a permanent (+) and (-). We advise you to
connect the power cable directly to the battery (as the connection of the CB cable
to the wiring of the car-radio or other parts of the electrical circuit may, in somecases,
increase the likelihood of interference).
Connect the red wire (+) to the
positive terminal of the battery
and the black (-) wire to the
negative terminal of the battery.
Connect the power cable to your
CB radio.
WARNING: Never replace the
original fuse (2 A) by one of a
different value.

Check the antenna connections
Turn the set on by turning the knob VOLUME clockwise.
Turn the SQUELCH knob to minimum (anti-clockwise). Adjust the volume to a
comfortable level.
e) Go to Channel 20 using the rotary knob on the front panel.
5) ADJUSTMENT OF SWR (Standing wave ratio):
WARNING: This must be carried out when you use your CB radio for the first time (and
whenever you re-position your antenna). The adjustment must be carried out in an
obstacle-free area.
* Using an external SWR meter (e.g. SWR 1 or SWR 2):
a) To connect the SWR meter :
- Connect the SWR meter between the CB radio and the antenna as close as possible
to the CB (use a maximum of 40 cm cable, type President CA 2C).
b) To adjust the SWR meter:
- Set the CB to channel 20.
- Put the switch on the SWR meter to position CAL ou FWD.
- Press the «push-to-talk» switch on the microphone to transmit.
- Bring the index needle to W by using the calibration key.
- Change the switch to position SWR (reading of the SWR level). The reading on the V.U.
meter should be as near as possible to 1. If this is not the case, re-adjust your antenna
to obtain a reading as close as possible to 1. (An SWR reading between 1 and 1.8 is
acceptable).
- It will be necessary to re-calibrate the SWR meter after each adjustment of the
antenna.
WARNING: In order to avoid any losses and attenuations in cables used for connection between the radio and its accessories, PRESIDENT recommends to use a cable
with a length inferior to 3m.
Your CB is now ready for use.
B) HOW TO USE YOUR CB:
1) ON/OFF - VOLUME:
a) To turn the set on, turn the knob (1) clockwise
b) To increase the sound level, turn the same knob further clockwise.
2) ASC (Automatic Squelch Control)/SQUELCH :
Suppresses undesirable back-ground noises when there are no communication.
Squelch does not effect neither sound nor transmission power, but allows a considerable improvement in listening comfort.
a) ASC: Automatic Squelch Control
Worldwide patent, a PRESIDENT exclusivity
No repetitive manual adjustment and a permanent improvement in
listening comfort when this function is active. It can be disconnected by
turning the switch (2) clockwise, in this case the manual squelch control
becomes active again.
b) Manual squelch
Turn the squelch knob clockwise to the exact point where all background noise disappears. This adjustment should be done with precision
as, if set to maximum, (i.e. fully clockwise) only the strongest signals will be
received.
English
4) BASIC OPERATIONS TO BE CARRIED OUT BEFORE USING YOUR
SET FOR THE FIRST TIME (without transmitting and without using
the «push-to-talk» switch on the microphone):
3) RF GAIN:
This knob is for adjusting sensitivity during reception. For long distance communications RF GAIN should be set to maximum. RF GAIN can be reduced to avoid distortion,
when your correspondent is close by and who does not have the RF POWER function.
The normal setting of this knob is on maximum (fully clockwise).
4) CHANNEL SELECTOR ROTARY KNOB:
Turning this knob allows you to choose a channel (1-40) for transmitting and receiving.
5) DISPLAY:
The display shows all the different functions. The bargraph shows the level of
reception and the level of power emitted. The TX LED lights up when the set goes into
transmission mode.
7) MODE:
Use this key to select AM or FM. The modulation mode must correspond with that of
the person with whom you communicate.
AM/ Amplitude Modulation (AM) is for communications in areas where there are
obstacles and over medium distances.
FM/ Frequency Modulation (FM) is for nearby communications in flat, open areas. It
gives better quality of communication (squelch adjustment needs more finesse).
8) CH 19:
Channel 19 is automatically selected when you activate this switch. To activate this
function, move the switch to CH19 position, and to return to the previous channel
move the same switch to OFF position.
9) 6-PIN MICROPHONE PLUG:
This plug is situated on the front panel, thereby making it easier to set the equipment
into the dashboard. See the cabling diagram on page 49.

E) HOW TO TRANSMIT OR RECEIVE A MESSAGE:
Now that you have read the manual, make sure that your CB Radio is ready for use
(i.e. check that your antenna is connected).
Choose your channel (19, 27).
English
-
Choose your mode (AM/FM) which must be the same as that of your correspondent.
Press the «push-to-talk» switch and announce your message «Attention stations,
transmission testing» which will allow you to check the clearness and the power of
your signal. Release the switch and wait for a reply. You should receive a reply like,
«Strong and clear».
If you use a calling channel (19, 27) and you have established communication with
someone, it is common practice to choose another available channel so as not to
block the calling channel.
