ATTENTION!
BEFORE USING THIS RADIO, READ THIS CHAPTER WHICH CONTAINS IMPORTANT OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR SAFE USAGE AND RF ENERGY AWARENESS AND CONTROL
INFORMATION FOR COMPLIANCE WITH RF ENERGY EXPOSURE LIMITS IN APPLICABLE
NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS.
The information provided in this document supersedes the general safety information contained in user
guides published prior to February 2002.
RF Energy Exposure Awareness and Control Information, and Operational Instructions for FCC Occupational Use Requirements
NOTICE: This radio is intended for use in occupational/controlled conditions, where users have full
knowledge of their exposure and can exercise control over their exposure to meet FCC limits. This radio device is NOT authorized for general population, consumer, or any other use.
This 2-way radio uses electromagnetic energy in the radio frequency (RF) spectrum to provide communications between two or more users over a distance. It uses radio frequency (RF) energy or radio waves to send
and receive calls. RF energy is one form of electromagnetic energy. Other forms include, but are not limited
to, sunlight and x-rays. RF energy, however, should not be confused with these other forms of electromagnetic energy, which when used improperly, can cause biological damage. Very high levels of x-rays, for example, can damage tissues and genetic material.
Experts in science, engineering, medicine, health, and industry work with organizations to develop standards
for safe exposure to RF energy. These standards provide recommended levels of RF exposure for both workers and the general public. These recommended RF exposure levels include substantial margins of protection.
All Vertex Standard 2-way radios are designed, manufactured, and tested to ensure they meet governmentestablished RF exposure levels. In addition, manufacturers also recommend specific operating instructions
Please refer to the following Web sites for more information on what RF energy exposure is and how to control your exposure to assure compliance with established RF exposure limits.
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/rf-faqs.html
http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/radiofrequencyradiation/index.html
Federal Communication Commission Regulations
The FCC rules require manufacturers to comply with the FCC RF energy exposure limits for mobile 2-way
radios before they can be marketed in the U.S. When 2-way radios are used as a consequence of employment, the FCC requires users to be fully aware of and able to control their exposure to meet occupational
requirements. Exposure awareness can be facilitated by the use of a label directing users to specific user
awareness information. Your Vertex Standard 2-way radio has a RF exposure product label. Also, your Vertex
Standard user manual, or separate safety booklet, includes information and operating instructions required to
control your RF exposure and to satisfy compliance requirements.
Compliance with RF Exposure Standard
Your Vertex Standard two-way radio is designed and tested to comply with a number of national and international standards and guidelines (listed below) regarding human exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic
energy. This radio complies with the IEEE and ICNIRP exposure limits for occupational/controlled RF exposure environment at duty factors of up to 50% talk-50% listen and is authorized by the FCC for occupational
use. In terms of measuring RF energy for compliance with the FCC exposure guidelines, your radio antenna
radiates measurable RF energy only while it is transmitting (during talking), not when it is receiving (listening)
or in standby mode.
Product Safety and RF Energy Exposure
to users of 2-way radios. These instructions are important because they inform users about RF energy exposure and provide simple procedures on how to control it.

Your Vertex Standard two-way radio complies with the following RF energy exposure standards and
guidelines:
Ÿ United States Federal Communications Commission, Code of Federal Regulations; 47CFR part 2 subpart J
Ÿ American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) C95.
1-1992
Ÿ Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) C95.1-1999 Edition
Ÿ International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) 1998
Ÿ Ministry of Health (Canada) Safety Code 6. Limits of Human Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields in the Frequency Range from 3 kHz to 300 GHz, 1999
Ÿ Australian Communications Authority Radiocommunications (Electromagnetic Radiation - Human Exposure) Standard, 2003
Ÿ ANATEL, Brasil Regulatory Authority, Resolution 256 (April 11, 2001) “additional requirements for SMR,
cellular, and PCS product certification.”
RF Exposure Compliance and Control Guidelines and Operating Instructions
To control exposure to yourself and others and to ensure compliance with the RF exposure limits, always adhere to the following procedures.
Guidelines:
Ÿ User awareness instructions should accompany device when transferred to other users.
Ÿ Do not use this device if the operational requirements described herein are not met.
Instructions:
Ÿ Transmit no more than the rated duty factor of 50% of the time. To transmit (talk), push the Push-To-Talk
(PTT) button or, for radios equipped with VOX, speak into the microphone. The red LED will illuminate
when the radio is transmitting. To receive calls, release the PTT button, or, for radios equipped with VOX,
stop talking. The red LED will extinguish when the radio stops transmitting. Transmitting 50% of the time,
or less, is important because this radio generates measurable RF energy exposure only when transmitting
NOTE:Table 1 below lists the recommended lateral distance for people in an uncontrolled environment
from the body of a vehicle with an approved, properly installed transmitting antenna (i.e., monopoles over a ground plane, or dipoles) at several different ranges of rated radio power for mobile
radios installed in a vehicle.
Table 1. Rated Power of Vehicle-Installed Mobile Two-Way Radio and
Recommended Minimum Lateral Distance from Vehicle Body
Mobile Radio Rated Power (see Note)
Minimum Lateral Distance from Vehicle Body
Less than 7 watts
8 inches (20 centimeters)
7 to 15 watts
1 foot (30 centimeters)
16 to 39 watts
2 feet (60 centimeters)
40 to 110 watts
3 feet (90 centimeters)
Ÿ When a mobile radio is used in conjunction with another co-located transmitter such as a Vehicular
Repeater, it is the vehicle operator’s responsibility to take appropriate steps to keep bystanders at the
required separation distance from the vehicle to ensure compliance with the FCC’s RF energy exposure
limits for the general population. See the co-located transmitter’s user manual for more details.
NOTE:.If you are not sure of the rated power of your radio, contact your Vertex Standard representative or
dealer and supply the radio model number found on the radio model label. If you can not determine
the rated power out, then assure 3-feet separation from the body of the vehicle. The maximum power
shown on the FCC Grant may be higher than the rated power allowing for production variation.
Product Safety and RF Energy Exposure
(in terms of measuring for standards compliance).
Ÿ Transmit only when people outside the vehicle are at least the recommended minimum lateral
distance away, as shown in Table 1, from the body of a vehicle with a properly installed antenna.
This separation distance will ensure that there is sufficient distance from a properly installed (according to
installation instructions) externally-mounted antenna to satisfy the RF exposure requirements in the standards listed above.

is enabled, wait until the short alert tone
ends before talking.
During a call, if the Channel Free Indication
feature is enabled on your radio (programmed
by your dealer), you will hear a short alert tone
the moment the target radio (the radio that is
receiving your call) releases the PTT button, indicating the channel is free for you to respond.
You will also hear the Channel Free Indication
tone if your call is interrupted, for example when
the radio receives an Emergency Call.
You can turn off the Channel Free Indication
tone or the PTT Sidetone
by disabling all
radio tones and alerts (see Turning the Radio
Tones/Alerts On or Off on page 76).

There are two ways of initiating scan:
• Main Channel Scan ( Manual ) : Your radio
scans all the channels/groups in your scan list.
On entering scan, your radio may – depending
