Installation
This Eagle radio is designed to generate a digital maritime distress call to facilitate search and
rescue. To be effective as a safety device, this radio must be used only within the geographic
range of a shore-based VHF marine Channel 70 distress and safety watch system. The
geographic range may vary but under normal conditions is approximately 20 nautical miles.
Installation Options
There are two ways to install the radio. You can choose:
• a deck or overhead mounted gimbal installation. The reversible mounting gimbal is fixed to
to a suitable site and the radio is placed into it. The radio can be removed for storage and
the viewing angle can be adjusted.
• a recessed installation. The radio is recessed into a cavity cut into a bulkhead. The radio
fixture is permanent and the viewing angle cannot be adjusted.
Location Requirements
Please check these BEFORE doing any cutting or drilling.
Whichever installation method you choose, ensure that the chosen location:
• is at least 3' (1 m) from the antenna
• allows easy connection to (at least) a 10 Amp fused 13.6 V DC electrical source and the
antenna
• is at least 1.5' (45 cms) from the compass to avoid creating magnetic deviation of the
compass during radio operation
• has a suitable space close by for installing the microphone bulkhead mount
• provides easy access to the controls on the front panel
• provides reasonable access to the wiring at the back of the radio
• provides enough room to fix the
DSC warning label
The VHF has a large LCD screen
with an optimum viewing angle
of approx. +/-20 deg. Ensure
the chosen location provides
a suitable view of the display.
Ideally, the user should be directly
in front of the display or no more
than +/-20 deg from the front of
the display.
Note: If unsure, temporarily power
up the radio and check for a
suitable location.

5.
Hold the mounting gimbal at the chosen location and use a soft pencil to mark the
screw hole positions onto the mounting surface.
If you can’t reach behind the mounting surface to attach the nuts, use the self-tapping
screws instead of the flat screws shown in the picture. If you’re drilling into fiberglass, use
a drill bit smaller than 3/16” (5mm) to drill the pilot holes.
Otherwise, drill the four screw holes where marked, using a 3/16” (5mm) drill bit. Drill
completely through the mounting surface.
Use a Philips screwdriver and the set of four flat screws, spring washers, plain washers,
and nuts to attach the mounting gimbal to the location site.
Slide the radio into the mounting gimbal.
Insert the two mounting knobs through the holes and tighten them sufficiently to hold
the radio at the desired viewing angle.
Change the Viewing Angle
The viewing angle on the gimbal mount has a 20º tilt range. To change the current viewing
angle on the gimbal mount:
1. Support the radio, then cautiously loosen the mounting knobs until the radio can be
moved.
2. Re-position the radio then tighten the mounting knobs again.

Tape the installation template onto the chosen location site.
Cut out the area marked by the solid dark line. (The dashed line indicates the total area that
will be ed by the radio fascia after installation.)
Remove the installation template and slide the radio into the cavity.
Working from the rear of the bulkhead, align the racheted outstand on each side of the
radio with the central hole in each mounting bracket.

!
WARNING
A valid USER MMSI must be entered into this radio before these DSC functions can be used.
See 4-2 Enter Your USER MMSI (USER MMSID).
5-1 WHAT IS DSC?
DSC (Digital Selective Calling) is a semi-automated method of establishing VHF, MF, and HF
radio calls. It has been designated as an international standard by the IMO (International
Maritime Organization) and is part of the GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety
System).
Currently, you are required to monitor Distress Channel 16, but DSC will eventually replace
listening watches on distress frequencies and will be used to broadcast routine and urgent
maritime safety information.
DSC enables you to send and receive calls from any vessel or coast station that is equipped
with DSC functionality, and within geographic range. Calls can be categorised as distress,
urgency, safety, or routine, and DSC selects a working channel automatically.

Appendix B - Troubleshooting
1. The transceiver will not power up.
A fuse may have blown OR there is no voltage getting to the transceiver.
a) Check the power cable for cuts, breaks, or squashed sections.
b) After checking the wiring, replace the 7 Amp fuse (1 spare fuse is supplied).
c) Check the battery voltage. This must be greater than 10.5V.
2. The transceiver blows the fuse when the power is switched on.
The power wires may have been reversed.
a) Check that the red wire is connected to the positive battery terminal, and the black wire is
connected to the negative battery terminal.
3. The speaker makes popping or whining noises when the engine is running.
Electrical noise may be interfering with the transceiver.
a) Re-route the power cables away from the engine.
b) Add a noise suppressor to the power cable.
c) Use resistive spark plug wires and/or use an alternator whine filter.
4. No sound from the external speaker.
a) Check that the external speaker cable is physically connected.
b) Check the soldering of the external speaker cable.
5. Transmissions are always on low power, even when high (HI) power is selected.
The antenna may be faulty.
a) Test the transceiver with a different antenna.
b) Have the antenna checked out.
6. Battery symbol is displayed.
The power supply is too low or too high.
a) Check the battery voltage. This should be at least 10.5V ± 0.5V DC.
b) Check the alternator on the vessel.
7. No position information is displayed.
The GPS cable may faulty or the GPS setting may be incorrect.
a) Check that the GPS cable is physically connected.
b) Check the polarity of the GPS cable.
c) Check the baud rate setting of the GPS if applicable. The baud rate setting should be 4800 and
parity should be set to NONE.

EAGLE - EVR-150 Installation and Operation Instructions
Procedure to remove the resistor and diode from NDC-4, 119-31, Adapter Cable:
You will notice near the end of the cable an adapter segment protected with black
heat-shrink.
To connect the EAGLE GPS unit to the EVR-150 radio, you must first remove the adapter
segment of the cable as shown in the following figures.
Remove the adapter segment at the end of your data cable as shown at left. Snip off the end
of the cable protected by the black heat-shrink. At right, we have used clear heat-shrink for
clarity, so you can see the diode and resistor protected within. Remove this portion of the
cable.
After you've removed the adapter segment, use wire pliers to expose the ends of the five
remaining wires in the cable. Cut off the black, blue and white wires, then seal their ends
with heatshrink.
Make the wire connections to the EVR-150 GPS/COM cable as follows:
• Strip about 1/4-inch (6.35 mm) of insulation from the Yellow wire and connect to the
Yellow wire on the EVR-150 GPS/COM cable.
• Connect the Bare Stranded Drain wire to the Green wire on the EVR-150 GPS/COM cable.

Appendix E - MMSI and License Information
You must obtain a user MMSI (Marine Mobile Service Identity) and enter it into your EVR-150
in order to use the DSC functions. Contact the appropriate authorities in your country. If you
are unsure who to contact, consult your Eagle dealer.
The user MMSI is a unique nine digit number, similar to a personal telephone number. It is
used on marine transceivers that are capable of using DSC (Digital Select Calling).
Depending upon your location, you may need a radio station license for the EVR-150. You
may also need an individual operator’s license.
Eagle recommends that you check the requirements of your national radio
communications authorities before operating DSC functions.
