Warning
■ Lightning
Any person is not safe outdoor during thunderstorm and lightning. This condition is
getting worse if somebody keeps a hand-held radio; chances of being hit by lightning are
doubled since lightning may hit a radio antenna as well. At this time, there is no handheld radio having any kind of protection against lightning current (which is higher than
10 kA.). Note also that no car provides adequate protection of its passengers or drivers
against lightning as well. Therefore, Alinco will not take responsibility for any danger
associated with using its hand-held radios outdoor or inside the car during lightning.
■ Limited Power Source
Adhering to the requirement of the following warning ensures compliance of the
transceiver with the safety standard for information technology equipment, EN 609501. Please note that the transceiver enclosure only provides mechanical protection of
its internal parts; it will not contain a fire within the device if the fire starts under
certain fault conditions. Alinco will not take responsibility for any fire hazard
associated with powering the transceiver or charging its batteries using a power source
which does not belong to the limited power sources in the meaning of EN 60950-1.

6.2.4 DCS Operation
The squelch unmutes only when the unit receives the matching code.
6.2.5 DET Mode in DCS Operation
■ DET Setting
If the DET mode in DCS operation is preferred, while in the DCS Code Setting mode
and DCS-OF is displayed, rotate the dial to eliminate the hyphen (DCS OF) then
proceed with the rest of setting sequence.
DET on DCS function stands for Detect-Only mode. In DCS operation, the TX signal
carries a digital code. The RX side, just like TSQ, detects this tone stream and
determines the squelch operation. This DCS code stream is transmitted all the way
through the communication like a CTCSS tone and it is necessary for receiver to
correctly and CONTINUOUSLY receive this DCS stream to hold the squelch open,
otherwise the CPU thinks that the signal is unwanted and it closes the squelch. But
due to noise or weak signal strength etc, sometimes it is difficult to continuously
receive a DCS stream. By activating DET, the receiver opens the squelch when the
first corresponding DCS stream is received, then thereafter, regardless of the status of
the DCS codes, the DCS squelch remains opened.
37
6.Selective Calling
■ Advantage of DET
It enables DCS squelch operation even in poorer signal conditions.
■ Disadvantage of DET
When it is activated, suppose 2 stations are sharing the same channel and using the
DCS selective-calling technique and transmitting at the same time. After station A
with its corresponding DCS is gone, you may still hear station B even his DCS code is
different from A, although he can't open your DCS squelch by his signal alone.
