Approved usage
This product can be freely used in Australia and New Zealand without a license.
The handsets are made from durable plastic for indoor and outdoor use,
however, they are not resistant to rain, fluid ingress, abuse or any careless
treatment.
Batteries
Each unit requires four AAA 1.5V alkaline batteries to function (included). The
battery symbol in the display indicates when it is time to change the batteries.
The battery symbol has two segments, which disappear as the battery charge
decreases. When the batteries are almost fully discharged the battery symbol
flashes and a warning tone is emitted, the batteries should be changed as soon
as possible. Good quality alkaline batteries will allow approximately 4 hours talk
time or 100 hours of stand-by time.
1. Remove the belt clip if fitted (see below).
2. Remove the battery cover by pressing on the indentation markings, and
pushing out (away from aerial).
3. Insert the batteries ensuring correct polarity is observed.

Setting Up
Belt clips
A belt clip is included, which can be fitted on the back of the handset once the
batteries have been installed. The belt clip allows the handset to be attached to
a belt, waistband or similar.
To remove, lift the small tab at the top of the clip and simultaneously push
upwards.
Range
The communication range is dependent on many factors, with the maximum
range being achieved when there are no obstacles in the transmission path (line
of sight). Under optimum conditions the maximum range can be up to 5km.
There will be a reduction in the range when the units are used in built up areas,
undulating terrains and vehicles.
Headset
The handset can be used with the headset supplied in the optional Accessory
Pack (pmr a-pack) which can be purchased from your local DORO retailer.
When the headset is connected, the microphone and speaker on the handset are
automatically disconnected, all other functions remain unchanged.
Please note!
Use only DORO original headsets with these PMR units.
Adjust the Call signal and headset volume immediately upon connecting a headset, as these
settings may initially be too loud.
Turning the handset On/Off
To turn the handset On or Off press and hold the ! button (1-2 seconds) until
a tune is heard.
