Cleaning Your Pager
Battery Information
To clean smudges and grime from the exterior of the
housing, use a soft, nonabrasive cloth moistened in
a mild soap and water solution.
Wipe the surface using a second cloth moistened in
clean water.
Do not immerse the pager in water. Do not use
any other cleaning solutions.
Your pager operates with a single AA size alkaline
battery (do not use carbon zinc batteries). The AAsize battery also recharges the pager’s internal NiCd
battery.
Two AA-size batteries are provided with your
pager. The first battery you install recharges the
pager’s internal battery and does not last long.
Use the second AA-size battery to replace the
first AA-size battery.
A battery gauge is provided with the Vital Signs
feature of the Main menu. Refer to “Checking
Vital Signs ;” on page 19.
If c displays, the pager’s AA-size battery is low.
Replace the AA-size battery.
If it has been a while since the battery was
replaced, you may need to charge the pager’s
internal NiCd battery overnight (or for a number
of hours) to ensure proper operation of your
pager.
Note: This product contains a Nickel-Cadmium
(NiCd) rechargeable batter y that must be
recycled or disposed of properly. Recycling
facilities may not be available in all areas.
Patent Information
This product is manufactured under one or more
Motorola U.S. Patents. A partial listing of these
patents is provided on the inside surface of the
battery door. Other patents covering this product
are pending.
Repair and Maintenance
When properly handled, your PF1500 pager is
capable of many years of trouble-free service.
However, if it ever requires service, contact your
Service Provider or a Motorola sales office for more
information.

Safety Information
Read this information before using a wearable
two-way paging device.
First introduced in 1995, the two-way pager is
one of the most exciting and innovative electronic
products ever developed. With it you can stay in
contact with your family, your office, information
services, and others.
For the safe and efficient operation of your
two-way pager, observe these guidelines:
Your two-way pager is a radio transmitter and
receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also
sends out radio frequency (RF) energy.
The two-way pager transmitter operates in the
frequency range of 896MHz to 902MHz, and the
receiver operates in the range of 929MHz to
942MHz. It utilizes commonly used frequency
modulation (FM) techniques.The unit transmits at
a power level of 0.15W for short periods of time
(from 0.016 to 0.160 seconds). Transmissions
occur infrequently and usually follow within a few
seconds of a page that has been received or
when the unit is first turned on.
In 1991, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE), and in 1992, the American
National Standards Institute (ANSI), updated the
1982 ANSI Standard for safety levels with respect
to human exposure to RF energy. Over 120
scientists, engineers, and physicians from
universities, government health agencies and
industry, after reviewing the available body of
research, developed this updated standard. In
March, 1993, the U.S. Federal Communications
24
Commission (FCC) proposed the adoption of this
updated Standard. The design of your two-way
pager complies with this updated Standard.
You may choose to turn the transmitter in your
two-way pager OFF at any time. Refer to “Setting
Transmitter Off Mode a” on page 18.
Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn
your unit OFF when in a “blasting area” or in
a r e a s p o s t e d “ Tu r n o f f t w o - w ay r a d i o ” .
Construction crews often use remote control RF
devices to set off explosives.
Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded
from RF energy, however, RF energy from twoway pagers may effect inadequately shielded
electronic equipment.
Check with the manufacturer or it’s representative
to determine if the following equipment or
systems are adequately shielded from external
RF energy:
• Motor Vehicle electronic and entertainment
systems (standard and any add-on equipment).
• Medical Equipment, hospital or personal (such
as pacemakers, hearing aids, etc.).
Turn your two-way pager OFF in health care
facilities when any regulation posted in the areas
instructs you to do so. Hospitals or health care
facilities may be using equipment that could be
sensitive to external RF energy.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Do not allow your two-way pager to be within the
p r ox i m i t y o f a n y p o t e n t i a l l y ex p l o s i ve
atmospheres. It is rare, but your two-way pager
may generate sparks. Two-way pagers have
internal electronic circuits which may be
operational even when the device is turned off or
the battery removed.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere
are often, but not always, clearly marked and
include the following:
• Gas stations
• Below deck on boats
• Fuel or chemical transfer/storage facilities
• Areas where air may contain chemicals or
particles, such as grain, dust, or metal powders
• Any area where you would normally be advised
to turn off your motor vehicle.
Do not transport or store flammable gas, liquid or
explosives in the compartment of your vehicle
that contains your two-way pager. Vehicles using
liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or
butane) must comply with the National Fire
Protection Standard (NFPA-58). For a copy of this
standard, contact the National Fire Protection
Association, One Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA
02269, Attn: Publication Sales Division.
Aircraft
Follow these rules when around aircraft:
• Turn your two-way pager OFF before boarding
any aircraft. Do not use it while airborne!
• To prevent possible interference with aircraft
systems, use your two-way pager on the ground
only with crew permission. This is a U.S. Federal
