Before Operating the Transceiver
Caution
The use of a transceiver in the following places may be prohibited.
• Aboard aircraft •In airports •In ports •Within or near the operating area of
business wireless stations or their relay stations.
Before using the transceiver in any of the above places, obtain any necessary
permission from the proper authorities, and be mindful of local laws that govern
amateur radio operation.
■Points to Note when Using an External Power Supply
• Use a 4.5V-16.0 DC external power source.
• When connecting the power supply to the transceiver, use the optional DC
cable for base stations (EDC-37). Connect the cable to the DC jack on the side
of the transceiver.
• When power is supplied from the cigarette lighter socket of a car, use the
cigarette lighter cable (EDC-43) or the cigarette lighter cable with filter (EDC36).
Use the cigarette lighter cable with filter (EDC-36) during mobile operation
to help prevent noise.
• Turn the transceiver's power off when connecting or disconnecting the DC

Caution
• The battery pack is not charged when shipped. It must be charged before using.
• It takes a maximum of 10 hours to charge the battery pack with the EDC-93
(120V) / EDC-94 (230V)(EBP-52N / EBP-53N) and about 30 hours with the
EBP-54.
• Charging should be conducted within a temperature range of 0 to 40˚C.
(32-104˚F)
• Do not convert or dismantle the battery pack and do not place it in fire or water.
Such practices are dangerous. Never short-circuit the battery pack terminals, as
this can cause damage to the equipment or lead to overheating the battery, which
could cause burns. Unnecessary prolonged charging (overcharging) can
deteriorate battery performance.
• The battery pack should be stored in a dry place where the temperature range is
-20˚C to -45˚C (-4˚F to +113˚F).
Temperatures outside this range can cause battery liquid leakage. Exposure
to prolonged high humidity can cause corrosion of metal components.
• Normally, the battery pack can be charged up to 500 times. However, the battery
pack can be considered dead if usable time drops off markedly in spite of charging
the pack for the recommended time. When this happens, a new pack should be
used.
• To protect the environment, do not dispose of the used battery pack improperly.
Check with your local solid waste officials for details on recycling the battery
pack for proper disposal in your area.
• To charge the battery pack, mount it on the transceiver, connect 13.8VDC to the
DC power supply jack and set the unit's battery charging function ON in the
Setting mode.

6. Selective Communicating
When communicating with a specific station, the tone squelch (CTCSS) function
can be used. Tone squelch is a function that enables you to receive a partner's
signal when the transmitted tone frequency matches your station's tone
frequency.
There are 38 different selectable tone number (frequencies)

7-1 Theft Alarm
The transceiver has a theft alarm function that generates an alarm sound from
the speaker when a person not knowing the proper procedures removes the
unit.This function is useful when installing the unit in a remote place or in a
car.
Wiring Cable for Alarm

Connect the center sleeve with
the ground (outer) sleeve.
There is no connection to the tip.
Caution
Cables A and B used with the alarm feature in our DR-135/235/435 products
cannot be used with this unit (the wiring is different).
28
7.Special Functions
7-1-1 Connecting and Setting
1. Insert the plug of the alarm cable into the speaker terminal jack.
Caution • Position the alarm cable and transceiver firmly so that it will
not be easily detached.
• Program the CH-SC (for alarm) memory in advance to
cancel the alarm (page 12).
• Set CH-SC (for alarm) in the state where the squelch is
activated.
2. Select "SCr-on" in the Setting
mode.
"✻" appears on the display.
3. Turn OFF the power switch of the
transceiver.
Alarm setting will then turn ON.
4. To cancel the alarm setting, turn the
power ON, and select "SCr-oF" in
the Setting mode.
Caution • When setting the theft alarm function, connect the alarm cable
before turning the power OFF.
• The alarm may start sounding if the plug is inserted after
turning the power OFF.
29
7.Special Functions
7-1-2 Alarm
When the cable is pulled out or cut, the alarm will start sounding.
While alarming, all of the key operations are disabled including the power switch.
However, receiving is activated on the frequency recorded in the CH-SC (alarm
channel).
■ How to Stop the Alarm
When a signal is received and the squelch is unmuted during the alarm, the
alarm is canceled and the unit returns to the "receive" mode (A TSQ setting is
also a valid squelch setting).
It is possible to cancel the alarm using another transceiver from a remote place.
1. To cancel the alarm, detach the battery pack.
2. To set the alarm again, attach the battery pack and turn the power OFF.
Caution : Use the same battery pack that was in place when the alarm
function was activated (if an external power supply is used, the
alarm will continue sounding).
30
7.Special Functions
7-1-3 Alarm Delay
When this function is set, the alarm
starts sounding after an interval.
1. Set the alarm function to "SCr-dL"
in Setting mode "14".
2. Insert the plug of the alarm cable, and
turn the power of the transceiver
OFF.
In this setting, the alarm will not
sound until 10 seconds after the plug
is detached.
If the cable is detached during the
alarm setting procedure, the alarm
will start sounding 10 seconds later.
Caution • It is recommended that you use the tone squelch when setting
the CH-SC (for alarm), since there is the considerable
possibility that the alarm setting could be canceled by reception
of any random signal.
• Set the alarm function off (SCr-oF) during regular
operation.
• If the CH-SC (for alarm) memory is not programmed, you
can stop the alarm by sending a signal on the same frequency
appearing on the display, in the VFO mode.
