Interference Avoidance
Multiple base stations can operate on high or low parts of the frequency band
to prevent interference, which may be heard in a headset as popping sounds
For example, if you have 4 base stations, set 2 on low band and 2 on high
band, as follows
NOTE:
1
If you have more than one base station, the one you set up for interference
avoidance will be considered the “primary” base station (See page 11)
All other “secondary” base stations will automatically set themselves to
the same settings as the primary base station when they are initialized
(See Page 12)
Turn the base station power on
The STATUS window will show “8” for a few seconds
After the “8” disappears, the
STATUS window will be blank

the CLEAR/BAND button, press and hold the REGISTER button
The STATUS window will show L, H or A
3
Press the CLEAR/BAND button repeatedly to cycle through parts of the
frequency band ― L = Low end, H = High end and A = All
Stop at the desired setting and wait until “c” appears
on the STATUS display
NOTE:
Base stations are shipped in the “A” (default) position
“c” will only appear on the STATUS display if you are setting the frequency
band the first time, or you are changing the setting
If you stop at L, H or A that was already set, an “8” will appear for a few
seconds and the STATUS display will become blank
If you change a base station’s existing frequency band setting, you will
have to re-register all beltpacs and/or all-in-one headsets that were
registered to that base station

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are the battery charger and base station power supplies interchangeable?
Yes
What is the maximum recommended number of base stations that can be linked
together with interconnect cables?
Four
Does linking the base stations automatically prevent them from interfering with
each other?
No, all base that are linked together must be initialized to prevent them from interfering
with each other’s frequencies
If the primary base station is turned off just momentarily (before the secondary
base(s) have a chance to start working independently), will the secondary base(s)
automatically re-initialize to the primary?
Yes, the secondary base(s) will re-establish communication without being initialized again
Will a secondary base station continue to operate if its primary is turned off for a
period of time?
Yes & No. Secondary base stations will initially stop operating when the primary base is
turned off, but will resume operation independently after about 40 seconds
Three bars will appear in its STATUS display, and its beltpacs will still be able to
communicate
If the primary base station is turned back on, the secondary base must be turned off and on
again to re-establish proper initialization
Can I use more than three beltpacs on a single base station in dual channel mode?
Yes, but only three users will be able to transmit at the same time
Up to 15 beltpacs can be registered to a single base station
Beltpacs and all-in-one headsets should be placed in press-to-talk mode when more than 3
beltpacs or all-in-one headsets are used (See page 11)
What should I do if my carrying case and equipment get wet?
Dry them out thoroughly before further use
Be sure all equipment is dry before using it again
CAUTION: Plugging wet electrical equipment into an AC power outlet
is dangerous!
