“SCAN TIMER”
An NOAA broadcast station transmits a
weather alert tone before any important
weather information. When the weather
alert function is turned ON, the transceiver detects the alert, then flashes the
“ALT” indicator until the transceiver is operated. The previously selected (used)
weather channel is checked any time
during standby, or while scanning, when
the power save function is activated.
The transceiver has 2 scan types: normal scan and priority scan. Normal
scan searches all tag channels in the
selected channel group. Priority scan
searches all tag channels in sequence
while monitoring channel 16.
The scan resume timer can be selected
as a pause (OFF) or timer scan (ON).
When OFF is selected, the scan
pauses until the signal disappears.
When ON is selected, the scan pauses
5 sec. and resumes, even if a signal is
being received on channels, other than
channel 16.

BATTERY CHARGING
■ Caution
■ Battery charging
NEVER incinerate used battery packs. Internal battery gas
may cause an explosion.
Prior to using the transceiver for the first time, the battery
pack must be fully charged for optimum life and operation.
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.
CAUTION: To avoid damage to the transceiver, turn it OFF
while charging.
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.
20
• Recommended temperature range for charging:
+10°C to +40°C (+50°F to +104°F)
• Use the supplied charger (AD-95) only. NEVER use another
manufacturer’s charger.
• An optional cable OPC-515L (for 13.8 V power source) or
CP-17L (for 12 V cigarette lighter socket) can be used instead of the AC adapters of the supplied charger.
Recommendation:
Charge the supplied battery pack for a maximum of
up to 8 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, charge the battery in intervals, and not for
extended periods is recommended.

■ Attachment
Insert the connector of the speaker-microphone into the
[SP MIC] connector on the transceiver and rotate (screw) the
connector cover as shown in the diagram below.
CAUTION: Attach the speakermicrophone’s connector securely to prevent accidental dropping, or water intrusion in the
connector.
Speaker
NEVER immerse the connector in water. If the connector becomes wet, be sure to dry BEFORE attaching it to the transceiver.
NOTE: The microphone is located at the top of the
speaker-microphone, as shown in the diagram above. To
maximize the readability of your transmitted signal (voice),
hold the microphone approx. 2.5 cm (1 inch) from your
mouth, and speak in a normal voice level.
22
IMPORTANT: KEEP the [SP MIC] jack cover attached
(transceiver) when the speaker-microphone is not in use.
Water will not get into the transceiver even if the cover is
not attached, however, the terminals (pins) will become
rusty, or the transceiver will function abnormally if the connector has become wet.
