SAFETY TRAINING INFORMATION
W ARN ING
Your Icom radio generates RF electromagnetic energy during
transmit mode. This radio is designed for and classified as
“Occupational Use Only”, meaning it must be used only during
the course of employment by individuals aware of the hazards, and the ways to minimize such hazards. This radio is
NOT intended for use by the “General Population” in an uncontrolled environment.
This radio has been tested and complies with the FCC RF exposure limits for
“Occupational Use Only”. In addition, your Icom radio complies with the following Standards and Guidelines with regard to RF energy and electromagnetic
energy levels and evaluation of such levels for exposure to humans:
• FCC OET Bulletin 65 Edition 97-01 Supplement C, Evaluating Compliance
with FCC Guidelines for Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields.
• American National Standards Institute (C95.1-1992), IEEE Standard for
Safety Levels with Respect to Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, 3 kHz to 300 GHz.
• American National Standards Institute (C95.3-1992), IEEE Recommended
Practice for the Measurement of Potentially Hazardous Electromagnetic
Fields– RF and Microwave.
• DO NOT transmit for more than 50% of total radio use time (“50% duty
cycle”). Transmitting more than 50% of the time can cause FCC RF exposure compliance requirements to be exceeded. The radio is transmitting
when the “TX indicator” lights red. You can cause the radio to transmit by
pressing the “PTT” switch.
• ALWAYS use Icom authorized accessories (antennas, batteries, belt clips,
etc.). Use of unauthorized accessories can cause the FCC RF exposure
compliance requirements to be exceeded.
• ALWAYS keep the antenna at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) away from the body
when transmitting and only use the Icom belt-clips which are listed on
page 31 when attaching the radio to your belt, etc., to ensure FCC RF exposure compliance requirements are not exceeded. To provide the recipients of your transmission the best sound quality, hold the antenna at least
5 cm (2 inches) from your mouth, and slightly off to one side.
The information listed above provides the user with the information needed to
make him or her aware of RF exposure, and what to do to assure that this radio
operates with the FCC RF exposure limits of this radio.
Electromagnetic Interference/Compatibility
To ensure that your expose to RF electromagnetic energy is within the FCC allowable limits for occupational
use, always adhere to the following guidelines:
• DO NOT operate the radio without a proper antenna attached, as this may damaged the radio and may also cause
you to exceed FCC RF exposure limits. A proper antenna is the antenna supplied with this radio by the manufacturer or antenna specifically authorized by
the manufacturer for use with this radio.
C AU TIO N
i
During transmissions, your Icom radio generates RF energy that can possibly
cause interference with other devices or systems. To avoid such interference,
turn off the radio in areas where signs are posted to do so. DO NOT operate
the transmitter in areas that are sensitive to electromagnetic radiation such as
hospitals, aircraft, and blasting sites.

PRECAUTION
RWARNING! NEVER connect the transceiver to an
AC outlet. This may pose a fire hazard or result in an electric
shock.
RWARNING! NEVER hold the transceiver so that the
antenna is very close to, or touching exposed parts of the
body, especially the face or eyes, while transmitting. The
transceiver will perform best if the microphone is 5 to 10 cm
(2 to 4 inches) away from the lips and the transceiver is vertical.
NEVER
connect the transceiver to a power source other
than the BP-226 or BP-227. Such a connection will ruin the
transceiver.
AVOID using or placing the transceiver in direct sunlight or
in areas with temperatures below –20°C (–4°F) or above
+60°C (+140°F): Marine, below –30°C (–22°F) or above
+60°C (+140°F): LMR.
BE CAREFUL! The IC-M88 employs waterproof construction, which corresponds to JIS waterproof specification,
Grade 7 (1 m; 3 ft depth for 30 min.). However, once the
transceiver has been dropped, waterproofing cannot be guaranteed due to the fact that the transceiver may be cracked,
or the waterproof seal damaged, etc.
MAKE SURE
the flexible antenna and battery pack are
securely attached to the transceiver, and that the antenna and
battery pack are dry before attachment. Exposing the inside
of the transceiver to water will result in serious damage to the
transceiver.

BATTERY CHARGING
■ Battery charging
■ Cautions
Prior to using the transceiver for the first time, the battery
pack must be fully charged for optimum life and operation.
NEVER incinerate used battery packs. Internal battery gas
may cause an explosion.
CAUTION: To avoid damage to the transceiver, turn it OFF
while charging.
NEVER immerse the battery pack in water. If the battery pack
becomes wet, be sure to wipe it dry immediately (particularly
the battery terminals) BEFORE attaching it to the transceiver.
Otherwise, the terminals will become corroded, or cause connection failure, etc.
• Recommended temperature range for charging:
+10°C to +40°C (+50°F to +104°F)
- The Li-Ion battery is functioning within –20°C to +60°C
(–4°F to +140°F)
• Use the specified chargers (BC-119N, BC-121N and BC152). NEVER use another manufacturer’s charger.
• Use the supplied AC adapter (BC-147A/E) for BC-152.
NEVER use another manufacturer’s AC adapter.
Recommendation:
Charge the supplied battery pack for a maximum of
up to 10 hours. Li-Ion batteries are different from NiCd batteries in that it is not necessary to completely
charge and discharge them to prolong the battery life.
Therefore, charging the battery in intervals, and not
for extended periods is recommended.
22
NEVER short the terminals of the battery pack. Also, current
may flow into nearby metal objects, such as a necklace, etc.
Therefore, be careful when carrying with, or placing near
metal objects, carrying in handbags, etc.
AVOID leaving the battery pack in a fully charged, or completely discharged condition for long time. It causes shorter
battery life. In case of leaving the battery pack unused for a
long time, it must be kept safely after discharge, or use the
battery until the battery indicator shows the middle level, then
remove it from the transceiver.
If your battery pack seems to have no capacity even after
being charged, completely discharge it by leaving the power
ON overnight. Then, fully charge the battery pack again. If the
battery pack still does not retain a charge (or very little), a
new battery pack must be purchased.

CAUTION:
• When installing batteries, make sure they are all the
same brand, type and capacity. Also, do not mix new and
old batteries together.
• Keep battery contacts clean. It’s a good idea to clean
battery terminals once a week.
