PREPARATION
Install the bracket securely onto the vehicle, using 6 sets
of the supplied screws (N99-2024-XX).
INSTALLATION
When using the RC-2000 in your vehicle, you can install
the transceiver in the trunk, under the seat or under the
dash board. On the transceiver, install the DC cable
(7 m/ 23.1 ft), the microphone extension cable
(5 m/ 16.5 ft), a cable for the speaker (5 m/ 16.5 ft), a
cable to the RC-2000 (5 m/ 16.5 ft), and coaxial cable(s)
to the antenna (not supplied in this package). Make sure
all cable lengths are adequate before installing the
brackets.
TRANSCEIVER INSTALLATION
When installing the metal plates, first attach the plastic
spacers (G11-2698-XX) to the transceiver. This is
necessary to protect the TS-2000(X)/ TS-B2000 from
scratches.

Then, prepare the transceiver by loosely screwing in the
rear screws. Hook those screws onto the rear guide rail
of the mounting bracket, then adjust the transceiver to
your desired angle before tightening the screws. Insert
and tighten the front screws to secure the transceiver in
place.
Rear screws
Note: The plastic spacers (G11-2698-XX) are supplied accessories for
the TS-2000(X)/ TS-B2000 transceiver.

SPEAKER AND MIC CABLE INSTALLATION
MODULAR PLUG CABLE CONNECTION
Connect the speaker extension cable plug to the
EXT.SP1 or EXT.SP2 connector {TS-2000 page 78}.
Then connect a plug from the speaker to the jack as
shown below. Connect the microphone extension cable
between the microphone jack on the front of the
transceiver and the microphone connector, as shown
below.
Use the supplied modular plug cable to connect the front
panel to the main unit. Connect the 4-pin plug to the
front panel and 6-pin plug to the main unit.
Note: It is easy to identify between the plugs, as the 6-pin plug is slightly
wider than the 4-pin plug.

DC POWER CABLE INSTALLATION
The vehicle battery must have a nominal rating of 12 V.
Never connect the transceiver to a 24 V battery. Be sure
to use a 12 V vehicle battery that has sufficient current
capacity. If the current to the transceiver is insufficient,
the display may darken during transmission, or transmit
output power may drop excessively.
attach the power cable to the battery terminals; red
connects to the positive (+) terminal, black connects
to the negative (–) terminal.
• Use the full length of the cable without cutting off any
excess, even if the cable is longer than required. In
particular, never remove the fuse holders from the cable.
Red
1 Route the DC power cable supplied with the
transceiver directly to the vehicle’s battery terminals
using the shortest path from the transceiver.
• If you are using a noise filter, it should be installed with
an insulator to prevent it from touching any metal on the
vehicle.
• We recommend you do not to use the cigarette lighter
socket since some cigarette lighter sockets introduce an
unacceptable voltage drop.
• If the power cable must be routed through a hole in the
vehicle chassis or body, for example in the firewall at the
front of the passenger compartment, use a rubber
grommet to protect the cable from abrasion. Dismantle
the fuse holder to pass the cable through the firewall.

5 Reconnect any wiring you may have removed from
the negative battery terminal.
6 Connect the DC power cable to the transceiver’s
power supply connector.
• Press the connectors firmly together until the locking tab
clicks.
• The entire length of the cable must be dressed so it is
isolated from heat, moisture, and the engine secondary
(high voltage) ignition system/ cables.
2 After the cable is in place, wind heat-resistant tape
around the fuse holder to protect it from moisture and
tie down the full run of cable.
3 To prevent the risk of short circuits, disconnect other
wiring from the negative (–) battery terminal before
connecting the transceiver.
4 Confirm the correct polarity of the connections, then

CYCLING THE KEY GROUPS
OVERVIEW
The TS-2000(X)/ TS-B2000 transceiver has many
function controls. However, the RC-2000 mobile
controller has only 12 keys and 5 controls. In order to
access all the available functions of the transceiver from
the RC-2000 mobile controller, the functions are divided
into 3 groups: A, B, and C. Group A is a primary
function group with most of the commonly used keys.
Group B is a secondary function group. Group C is a
special group whose functions change, depending on
the current operating mode.
Within each group, there are several sub-groups, each
identified by their suffix numbers. Momentarily press
[F1] to cycle through each sub-group within your
selected group (A, B, or C). The suffix numbers change
to reflect the currently selected sub-group. To change
the main group (A, B, or C), press and hold [F1].
As you change the group and sub-group, the available
functions for [F2] ~ [F6] change. Press one of [F2] ~
[F6] to activate the function which appears on the
display above each key.
The following diagram illustrates how to access each
group and sub-group.

PROGRAMMABLE MEMORY (PM)
Programmable Memory (PM) stores virtually all settings
currently set on the transceiver. This transceiver
provides 5 PM channels to store 5 sets of transceiver
configurations. Later you can quickly recall one of these
memories, depending on the operations you have in
mind or the operating environment.
The following settings are shared by both the main
transceiver and the sub-receiver:

APPLICATION EXAMPLES
The following are examples of how you might use Programmable Memory.
Solution
Solution
Situation
Situation 11
You share your transceiver with other members in
your family or club. However, each individual has
personal preferences for how they like to set various
functions. You have to keep changing many settings
each time you use the transceiver.
Situation
Situation 22
While operating mobile on the way to work every
morning, you prefer a silent transceiver that does not
interrupt the morning calm. In addition, you feel that a
bright display is a waste of electricity in sunlight.
At night when driving home, you realize the Beep
function truly serves a purpose and you feel it is nice
to see a bright display after dark.
Because 5 PM channels are available, up to
5 persons can separately program the transceiver and
store their customized environment. Then each
person can quickly change to his or her favorite
settings simply by recalling a PM channel.
It is too much trouble to change back the settings
after somebody else has reconfigured them. So this
application may avoid having a feature-rich
transceiver but never using many useful features.
Solution
Solution
In two PM channels, store the same operating data
such as frequency, offset, tone, etc., and store
different settings for the Display Dimmer and Beep
functions. Then you can quickly recall the best
settings for day or night operating.

When condensation occurs inside the controller:
Condensation may occur inside the controller in such cases where the
room is warmed using a heater on cold days or where the controller is
quickly moved from a cold room to a warm room. When condensation
occurs, the microcomputer and/or other circuits may become unstable,
resulting in transceiver malfunction. If this happens, unplug the controller
and wait for a while. When the condensed droplets disappear, the
controller will function normally.
