Why has the ACMA increased the number of available UHF CB channels?
To provide additional channel capacity within the UHF CB Band the ACMA will over
the next 5 years change the majority of the current wideband 40 channel use to
narrowband 80 channel use.
During this time wideband channel use will be gradually phased out as users
upgrade their existing radio’s.
This means that the new Oricom narrowband radio you have purchased will have more
channels than older wideband radios. Some of these channels are locked and cannot
be used, (see the channel chart for more information).
When did this take place?
Early in 2011 new AS/NZS Standards came into effect allowing operators to use
additional narrowband channels and also use narrowband transmissions on some
current wideband channels. This increased the number of channels up to 80, 75 of
which are useable voice channels.
What issues may users experience during the transition phase?
When a new narrowband radio receives a transmission from an older wideband
radio the speech may sound loud and distorted – simply adjust your radio volume
for the best listening performance.
When an older wideband radio receives a signal from a new narrowband radio
the speech may sound quieter - simply adjust your radio volume for best listening
performance. When operating a narrowband radio or channel 41 - 80 interference is
possible from wideband radios transmitting on high power or an adjacent frequency.
The issues described above are not a fault of the radio but a consequence of mixed
use of wideband and narrowband radios.
It is expected that as older wideband radios are removed from service that this issue
will be resolved.
Most radios in use will be narrowband eliminating this issue.

Information on Safe Operation
WARNING
Read This Information Before Using Your Oricom Radio.
The operation of your UHF radio in Australia and New
Zealand is subject to conditions in the following licenses:
In Australia the ACMA Radio communications (Citizen
Band Radio Stations) and in New Zealand by MED the
General User Radio License for Citizen Band Radio.
Radio Antenna
Do not use any radio that has a damaged antenna. If a
damaged antenna comes in contact with the skin, a minor
burn may result.
Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or attachments
could damage the radio and violate compliance. Do Not
change or modify the antenna.
Do not hold the antenna when the radio is "in use."
Holding the antenna reduces range and may cause bodily
harm.
Safety and general use whilst in a vehicle
Check the State and Federal laws and regulations
regarding the use of two way radios in the area where you
drive, and always obey them.
4
Safety Information and Warnings
For Vehicles fitted with Air Bags
WARNING
Do not place your radio in the area over an air bag or in
the air bag deployment area.
Air bags inflate with great force. If a radio is placed in the
air bag deployment arean and the air bag inflates, the
radio may be propelled with great force and cause serious
injury to the occupants of the vehicle.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn your radio OFF when in any area with a potentially
explosive atmosphere.
Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire
resulting in injury or even death.
NOTE: 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
facilites, areas where the air contains chemicals or particles;
such as grain, dust or metal powder and any other area where
you would normally be advised to turn off your vehicle engine.
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
radios."
Obey all signs and instructions.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Energy
Your Oricom two-way radio complies with Australian
Communication Authority Radio communications
(Electromagnetic Radiation-Human Exposure)
Standard,2003.
5
Safety Information and Warnings
WARNING
To assure optimal radio performance and make sure
human exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic
energy is within the guidelines set out in the above
standards always adhere to the following procedures.
Transmit and Receive Procedure
Your two-way radio contains a transmitter and a receiver.
To control your exposure and ensure compliance with the
general population/uncontrolled environment exposure
limits, always adhere to the following procedures:
•Transmit no more than 50% of the time.
•To receive calls, release the PTT button.
•To transmit (talk), press the Push to Talk(PTT) button.
Transmitting 50% of the time, or less, is important
because the radio generates measurable RF energy
exposure only when transmitting (in terms of measuring
standards compliance).
Always hold the radio approximately 5cm in front of your
mouth with the antenna pointing away from your head.
Radio Operation and EME Exposure
Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or attachments
could damage the radio and violate compliance. Do NOT
hold the antenna when the radio is "IN USE."
Holding the antenna reduces the effective range.
Do not use the radio if the antenna is damaged. If a
damaged antenna makes contact with your skin, a minor
burn can result.
If you wear a radio on your body when transmitting always
fit the radio on the belt clip (supplied). Always ensure the
radio and its antenna is at least 5cm from your body when
transmitting.
Electromagnetic Interference/Compatibility
Nearly every electronic device is susceptible to
electromagnetic interference(EMI).

U.S.Food and Drug Administration.
People with pacemakers should:
•Always keep the radio more than 15cm from their
pacemaker when the radio is turned ON.
•Not carry the radio in the breast pocket.
•Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the
potential for interference.
•Turn the radio OFF immediately if there is any reason to
suspect that inerference is taking place.
Medical Devices - Hearing Aids
Some radios may interfere with some hearing aids.
In the event of such interference, you may want to consult
your hearing aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.

will receive the Repeator on its specific channel (all repeater output are
on channel 1 to 8 and 41-48) but transmit to the repeater channel 31
through 38 and 71 to 78.
e.g
CH01 on Duplex mode will receive on CH01 but transmit on CH31.
CH02 on duplex mode will receive on CH02 but transmit on CH32.
If you transmit on CH01 duplex mode, you are actually transmitting on
CH31.

The primary use for these channels is repeater operation using 750
kHz offset. Channels 1-8 and 41-48 inclusive are used for mobile
reception and channels 31-38 and 71-78 for mobile transmission.
In addition, any designated repeater channel may be used for simplex
operation in areas where it is not used for repeater operation.
Speech telephony shall be inhibited on these channels.
At the time of production Channels 61, 62 and 63 are guard channels
and are not available for use.
Channel 5 and 35 (paired for Duplex repeaters) are reserved as
emergency channels and should be used only in an emergency.

UHF CB channels and frequencies
CTCSS and DCS will not operate on channels 5 and 35.

website in Australia and the MED website in New Zealand. Channel 11
is a calling channel generally used to call others and channel 40 is the
customary road vehicle channel.
Once contact is established on the calling channel, both stations
should move to another unused “SIMPLEX” channel to allow others to
use the calling channel.
Channels 22 and 23 are for Telemetry and Telecommand use, voice
communications are not allowed on these channels by law.
Channel 9 and above are the best choices for general use in Simplex
