FEATURES continued
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device does not cause
harmful interference, and (2) this radio must accept any interference
that may cause undesired operation. To maintain compliance with
FCC's RF exposure guidelines, for body-worn operation, this
radio has been tested and meets the FCC RF exposure guidelines
when used with Et6n Radio Corp. accessories supplied or designated
for this product. Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines.
IMPORTANT NOTICE, FCC LICENSE REQUIRED
FOR GMRS OPERATION
The FR 1000 Series operates on GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service)
frequencies which require an FCC (Federal Communications Commission) license. You must be licensed prior to operating on channels 1
- 7 or 15 - 22, which comprise the GMRS channels of the FR 1000
Series. Serious penalties could result for unlicensed use of GMRS
channels, in violation of FCC rules, as stipulated in the Communications Act's Sections SOland 502 (amended). You will be issued a call
sign by the FCC which should be used for station identification when
operating the radio on GMRS channels. You should also cooperate by
engaging in permissible transmissions only, avoiding channel interference with other GMRS users, and being prudent with the length of
their transmission time. To obtain a license or ask questions about
the license application, contact the FCC at 1-888-CALL FCC or go to
the FCC's website: http://www.fcc.gov and request form 605.
IMPORTANT NOTICE, FCC LICENSE REQUIRED
FOR GMRS OPERATION continued
Exposure To Radio Frequency Energy
Your Et6n radio is designed to comply with the following national and
international standards and guidelines regarding exposure of human
being to radio frequency electromagnetic energy:
• United States Federal Communications Commission, Code of
Federal Regulations: 47 CFR part 2 sub-part J
• American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/Institute of Electrical
& Electronic Engineers (IEEE) C95. 1-1992
• Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineer (IEEE) C95. 1-1 999
Edition
• National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements
(NCRP) of the United States, Report 86, 1986
• International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
(ICNIRP) 1998
To control your exposure and ensure compliance with the general
population or uncontrolled environment exposure limits, transmit
no more than 50% of the time. The radio generates measurable RF
energy exposure only when transmitting.
IMPORTANT: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly
approved by Et6n could void your right to operate this unit. Your radio
is set up to transmit a regulated signal on an assigned frequency. It
is against the law to alter or adjust the settings inside the radio to
exceed those limitations. Any adjustment to your radio must be made
by qualified technicians.

CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
Your FR 1000 Series is equipped for using a rechargeable NiMH battery pack which can be recharged using an AC wall adapter (included).
Initial charge time is 24 hours with a charge time of 12 hours thereafter, For maximum battery life, we recommend charging the battery
pack when the low battery icon comes on. Remove the charger
from the radio when the charge time expires, For the location of the
CHARGING JACK see page 24,
In order to ensure that the battery pack is fully charged, it is recommended that the battery pack be charged for at least 12 hours with
the radio turned OFF,
You can also charge the rechargeable NiMH battery pack using the
Dynamo Crank, To charge using the Dynamo Crank rotate rapidly the
Dynamo Crank handle clockwise or counter-clockwise,
To get the best charging condition, it is recommended to charge the
battery pack through the Dynamo Crank with the radio turned OFF.
1, Only use our NiMH battery pack,
2, Do not attempt to charge alkaline batteries or any batteries or battery packs other than the one indicated in the manual. This may
cause leakage and damage to the radio,
3, For long term storage of the radio, turn the radio OFF and remove
the batteries from the radio, .
LOW BATTERY LEVEL INDICATOR
Your FR 1000 Series has a BATTERY LEVEL METER :---~
that shows the battery power level. The greater the number of bars
visible, the stronger the battery level. When the battery level is low,
the Battery Shell :
~ icon will flash in the display indicating your
batteries should be replaced or recharged if using a rechargeable
battery pack,
SELECTING THE POWER SOURCE
Your FR 1000 Series can use either an Alkaline battery or the
rechargeable NiMH battery pack. Just set the BATTERY SOURCE
switch to either "Battery" or "Dynamo-Adapter" (for NiMH battery
pack) position.

ABOUT RANGE
Your FR 1000 Series radios are designed to give you maximum range
under optimum conditions.
Optimum Conditions are:
• Over water
• Open rural areas without obstructions
• Flat areas where you can see the other person
To ensure you get maximum range:
• Be sure to use fresh or fully charged batteries - low batteries will
cause low power conditions
• Be sure you are on a GMRS channel - FRS channels are restricted
by the FCC to low power
• Be sure to set your radio to use Hi power.
• Be sure to point the ANTENNA upward.
