Attaching the spacer to the beltclip
A spacer is included to be used with
the optional Speaker/Microphone. The
spacer must be affixed to the beltclip
of your ATLANTIS radio.
Remove the backing from the spacer
and attach it to the upper part of the
beltclip.
Do not operate your ATLANTIS radio when
using the optional Speaker/Microphone
unless the spacer is properly affixed behind
the beltclip.
In order to reduce the likelihood of excessive radio frequency exposure, the spacer
is provided for you to increase the distance
between the radio antenna and the human
body when operating the radio while
attached to your belt. Additional steps
should be taken to maintain a separation
distance of at least 1 inch between the
antenna and the human body.

Charging the Battery Pack
Your marine radio is powered by a
specially designed NiMH battery pack
or an Alkaline battery pack. (Alkaline
batteries are not included.) Before
operating the ATLANTIS, charge the
NiMH battery pack for 15 hours without
interruption the first time.
1. Place the ATLANTIS in the cradle
holder.
☞ You can monitor incoming calls while
the ATLANTIS is in the cradle holder.
☞ You can charge the battery pack
alone or connected to the
ATLANTIS.
☞ Periodically, the NiMH battery
should be fully drained prior to
recharging.

Troubleshooting
à Not enough range
Cause: Line of sight blocked
Ú Switch to 5W mode
(if available).
à Will not transmit on 5 watt range but
will transmit on the 1 watt range.
Cause: Low voltage.
Ú Recharge or replace the
batteries.
(Use high quality alkaline
batteries).
à Battery will not hold a charge.
Cause: Battery has developed a
memory.
Ú Periodically, drain the NiMH
battery before recharging.
(This can be done by
listening to the weather
channel until the
battery drains).
à Strange Display
Cause: Inverted display has
been activated.
Ú Press and hold the 1/5W key
for 2 seconds.

FCC Safety Precautions
When operating your portable marine VHF radio transceiver, you should know
that the antenna radiates radio frequency energy. This radio was designed to
meet the FCC's rules and regulations for the maximum permissible exposure to
radio frequency energy. This design was tested and found to be compliant to
the strict requirements established by the FCC.
The belt clip is provided for the purpose of carrying the radio ONLY. Do not
attempt to activate the transmitter from this position unless you have installed
the proper Uniden speaker/microphone accessory.
WARNING: It is up to the user to properly operate this radio transmitter to
insure safe operation. Please adhere to the following:
Ú Never allow children to operate the radio without adult supervision and the
knowledge of the following safety guidelines.
Ú Hold the radio transceiver to your face, but always maintain at least a 1 inch
separation distance between your body (including the face and eyes) and
any surface of the radio.
Ú Never allow the antenna to touch the human body or to come within 1 inch
when the transmitter is active.
Ú When using an external speaker or microphone, USE ONLY THE UNIDEN
MODEL HHATL07. This accessory is designed to be used with a spacer that
keeps the radiating parts of the portable marine VHF radio away from the
human body at a distance where the radiated energy is below the maximum
permissive level. Use of any other accessory for this purpose may invalidate
your authority to operate this device!
