This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. Operation is subject to the condition
that this device does not cause harmful interference.
SAFETY TRAINING INFORMATION
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
W ARN ING
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:
• F CC 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.
• The following accessories are authorized for use with this product.
Use of accessories other than those specified may result in RF exposure levels exceeding the FCC requirements for wireless RF exposure.; Belt Clip (MB-94), Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery Pack (BP230N/BP-232N) and Speaker-microphone (HM-131L).
C AU TIO N
To ensure that your expose to RF electromagnetic
energy is within the FCC allowable limits for occupational use, always adhere to the following guidelines:
•D
O 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.
• 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 “LED indicator” lights red. You can cause the
radio to transmit by pressing the “PTT” switch or VOX function.
• ALWAYS keep the antenna at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) away from the
body when transmitting and only use the Icom belt-clip which is
listed on page 33 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
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.
Occupational/Controlled Use
The radio transmitter is used in situations in which persons are exposed
as consequence of their employment provided those persons are fully
aware of the potential for exposure and can exercise control over their
exposure.

best if the microphone is 5 to 10 cm (2 to 4 in.) away from the lips
and the transceiver is vertical.
R CAUTION! NEVER operate the transceiver with a headset
or other audio accessories at high volume levels.
R CAUTION! NEVER short the terminals of the battery pack.
R CAUTION! NEVER use non-Icom battery packs/chargers to
prevent the loss of the transceiver’s good performance and warranty.
R CAUTION! NEVER expose the transceiver to rain, snow or
any liquids. The transceiver may be damaged.
DO NOT push [PTT] when not actually desiring to transmit.
DO NOT use or place the transceiver in direct sunlight or in areas
with temperatures below –30°C (+22°F) or above +60°C (+140°F).
DO NOT modify the transceiver. The transceiver warranty does
not cover any problems caused by unauthorized modification.
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.
The use of non-Icom battery packs/chargers may impair transceiver performance and invalidate the warranty.
For U.S.A. only
CAUTION! Changes or modifications to this device, not expressly
approved by Icom Inc., could void your authority to operate this

■ Emergency Call
When [Emergency Single] or [Emergency Repeat] (p. 11) is
pushed and held for the specified time period, the emergency signal (5-tone, DTMF or MDC 1200) is transmitted once or repeatedly
on the emergency channel. A repeat emergency signal is automatically transmitted until it receives the acknowledgement signal.
When no emergency channel is specified, the signal is transmitted
on the previously selected channel.
If you want to cancel the emergency call, push and hold the key
again before transmitting the call.
The emergency call can be transmitted without a beep emission,
and the LCD indication if [Emergency Single (Silent)] or [Emergency Repeat (Silent)] (p. 11) is pushed.
The transceiver can also be programmed to keep the microphone
open during an emergency call, allowing monitoring of the situation.

hazards: smoke, fire, or the battery may rupture. Misuse can
also cause damage to the battery or degradation of battery
performance.
R DANGER! Use and charge only specified Icom battery packs
with Icom radios or Icom charger. Only Icom battery packs are
tested and approved for use and charge with Icom radios or Icom
charger. Using third-party or counterfeit battery packs or charger
may cause smoke, fire, or cause the battery to burst.
D Battery caution
R DANGER! DO NOT hammer or otherwise impact the battery. Do
not use the battery if it has been severely impacted or dropped, or if
the battery has been subjected to heavy pressure. Battery damage
may not be visible on the outside of the case. Even if the surface
of the battery does not show cracks or any other damage, the cells
inside the battery may rupture or catch fire.
R DANGER! NEVER use or leave battery packs in areas with
temperatures above +60˚C (+140˚F). High temperature buildup in
the battery, such as could occur near fires or stoves, inside a sun
heated car, or in direct sunlight may cause the battery to rupture or
catch fire. Excessive temperatures may also degrade battery performance or shorten battery life.
R DANGER! DO NOT expose the battery to rain, snow, seawater,
or any other liquids. Do not charge or use a wet battery. If the battery gets wet, be sure to wipe it dry before using. The battery is not
