IMPORTANT
READ THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL
CAREFULLY before attempting to operate the receiver.
SAVE THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL. This
manual contains important safety and operating instructions for the IC-R75.
EXPLICIT DEFINITIONS
WORD
DEFINITION
R WARNING
Personal injury, fire hazard or electric
shock may occur.
CAUTION
NOTE
Equipment damage may occur.
If disregarded, inconvenience only.
No risk of personal injury, fire or
electric shock.
PRECAUTIONS
RNEVER apply AC to the [DC13.8V] jack on the receiver rear panel. This could cause a fire or ruin the receiver.
RNEVER apply more than 16 V DC, such as a 24 V
battery, to the [DC13.8V] jack on the receiver rear
panel. This could cause a fire or ruin the receiver.
RNEVER let metal, wire or other objects touch any
internal part or connectors on the rear panel of the receiver. This may result in an electric shock.
NEVER expose the receiver to rain, snow or any liquids.
AVOID using or placing the receiver in areas with temperatures below –10°C (+14°F) or above +60°C
(+140°F). Be aware that temperatures on a vehicle’s
dashboard can exceed 80°C (+176°F), resulting in permanent damage to the receiver if left there for extended periods.
AVOID placing the receiver in excessively dusty environments or in direct sunlight.
AVOID placing the receiver against walls or putting
anything on top of the receiver. This will obstruct heat
dissipation.
Place unit in a secure place to avoid inadvertent use by children.
During mobile operation, DO NOT operate the receiver
without running the vehicle’s engine. When receiver
power is ON and your vehicle’s engine is OFF, the vehicle’s battery will soon become exhausted.
Make sure the receiver power is OFF before starting
the vehicle. This will avoid possible damage to the receiver by ignition voltage spikes.

INSTALLATION AND CONNECTIONS
■ Grounding
To prevent accidents involving electricity and interference from transceivers, ground the receiver through
the [GND] terminal on the rear panel.
For best results, connect a heavy gauge wire or strap
to a long earth-sunk copper rod. Make the distance between the [GND] terminal and ground as short as possible.
R WARNING: NEVER connect the [GND]
terminal to a gas or electric pipe, since the connection could cause an explosion or electric shock.

■ Optional bracket and
carrying handle
D Mounting bracket
An optional IC-MB5 MOBILE MOUNTING BRACKET is available to install the radio under a table, on a wall, in a
vehicle, etc.
Select an area to mount the receiver keeping in mind
that the weight of the receiver is approx. 3 kg.
Flat washer
■ Receiver stand
The base of the receiver has an adjustable stand for
desktop use. Set the stand to one of two angles depending on your operating conditions.
D Carrying handle
An optional handle allows you to easily carry and
transport the receiver.
Attach the MB-23 CARRYING HANDLE with the supplied
rubber feet as shown.

■ Antenna connection
Antennas play a very important role in receiver operation. Connecting a poor quality antenna to the receiver
will result in less than optimum performance.
When using a 50 Ω antenna, use [ANT 1] connector for
connection. When using a 500 Ω long wire antenna,
use [ANT 2] terminal for connection.

■ Twin PBT operation
The twin PBT (Passband Tuning) function electronically narrows the IF passband widths to reduce interference. Moving both [TWIN PBT] controls to the
same position shifts the IF.

positions when there is no interference.
• When PBT is used, the audio tone may be
changed.
• PBT may not function with some IF filter combinations.

find the source of the problem, and replace the damaged fuse with a new, rated fuse.
CAUTION: DISCONNECT the DC power cable
from the receiver when changing a fuse.
3 A fuse
The IC-R75 has 2 types of fuses installed for receiver
protection.
• DC power cable fuses .................................. FGB 3 A
• Circuitry fuse ................................................ FGB 3 A
CIRCUITRY FUSE REPLACEMENT
The 13.8 V DC from the DC power cable is applied to
all units in the IC-R75 through the circuitry fuse. This
fuse is installed in the MAIN unit.
FGB 3 A
q Remove the top cover as shown on p. 34
w Replace the circuitry fuse as shown in the diagram
at right.
e Replace the top cover.
■ Clock backup battery replacement
The receiver has a lithium backup battery (CR2032)
inside for clock and timer functions. The usual life of
the backup battery is approximately 2 years.
When the backup battery is exhausted, the receiver
receives normally but cannot retain the current time.
