Instruction Manual
Thank you for purchasing your new Alinco transceiver. Please read this manual
carefully before using the product to ensure full performance, and keep this
manual for future reference as it contains information on after-sales service.
In case addendum or errata sheets are included with this product, please read
those materials and keep them together with this instruction manual for future
reference.
Introduction
Thank you very much for purchasing this excellent Alinco transceiver. Our products are ranked among the
finest in the world. This radio has been manufactured with state of the art technology and it has been tested
carefully at our factory. It is designed to operate to your satisfaction for many years under normal use.
Please read this manual completely from the first page to the last, to learn all the functions the
product offers. It is important to note that some of the operations may be explained in relation
to information in previous chapters. By reading just one part of the manual, you may risk not
understanding the complete explanation of the function.
Before transmitting
There are many radio stations operating in proximity to the frequency ranges this product covers. Be careful
not to cause interference when transmitting around such radio stations.
■ Lightning
Any person is not safe outdoor during thunderstorm and lightning. This condition is getting worse if
somebody keeps a hand-held radio; chances of being hit by lightning are doubled since lightning may hit a
radio antenna as well. At this time, there is no hand-held radio having any kind of protection against lightning
current (which is higher than10 kA.). Note also that no car provides adequate protection of its passengers or
drivers against lightning as well. Therefore, Alinco will not take responsibility for any danger associated with
using its hand-held radios outdoor or inside the car during lightning.
■ About
IP54 rating / Dust and splash resistant
About IP54 rating
5: Dust protected / Ingress of dust is not entirely prevented, but it must not enter in sufficient quantity to
interfere with the satisfactory operation of the equipment; complete protection against contact.
4: Splashing water / Water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect.
Test duration: 5 minutes / Water volume: 10 litters per minute / Pressure: 80~100 kN/m²
The IP54 designation provides for limited dust and splash proofing of the radio per specified above. This
compatibility is factory guaranteed for a period of one year provided all the jack covers are securely in
place, any accessories connected must be specified genuine Alinco accessories and the radio has not
been disassembled by the customer. The factory has tested and made the equipment compatible to IP54
certification during engineering. However, please understand that this equipment is NOT certified IP54
compliant but is designed to remain operational when used in hard conditions and is in no way stating that
you should attempt to wash the radio for cleaning. Warranty will not cover radios that are water/dust damage
due to negligence or misuse of the product.
■ Covering
ranges
You may expect a range of approx.3km/2 miles or more at high-power when located on a flat, noise-free
place like on a beach. However, it may vary drastically depending on how to wear and carry the radios,
surrounding locations/conditions and static noise levels (below or near power transmission lines), etc. In
urban areas with many buildings or inside a building, such covering range will become drastically short even
to several tens of meters.

BATTERY INFORMATION
Charging Operation
The battery is not charged at the factory, so please charge it before use. Charge the battery for the first
time after purchase or extended storage (more than 2 months) may not bring the battery to its normal
operating capacity. After repeating fully charge/ discharge cycle for two or three times, the operating
capacity will reach the best performance. The battery life is over when its operating time decreases
even though it is fully and correctly charged and it must be replace to new one.
Battery Charger Type
Please use Alinco's designated charger, other models may cause explosion. After installing the battery,
when the radio displays
low battery, please charge the battery.
Notice for Charging Battery
▲Do not shortcircuit the charger. Never attempt to remove the casing from the battery, otherwise the
warranty is void and you risk serious damage to yourself and properties.
▲The ambient temperature should be between 5℃ and 40℃ while charging. Charging outside this
range may not charge the battery.
▲Always switch off the transceiver before charging. Otherwise, it may not charge correctly.
▲To avoid interfering the charging procedure, please do not cut off the power or take out the battery
during charging.
▲Do not recharge the battery if it is already fully charged. This may shorten the life of the battery or
damage the battery.
▲Do not charge the battery or transceiver when wet. Dry it before charging to avoid danger.
02
BATTERY INFORMATION
Caution
• Risk of explosion, generation of heat or leak of chemicals inside if the battery is replaced by an
incorrect type or reverse polarity. Use always the recommended types of batteries in this manual only.
• The battery pack isn't fully charged when shipped. It must be charged before use.
• Charging should be conducted in a temperature range of +5ºC to +40ºC (+41ºF to +104ºF).
• Don't modify, dismantle, incinerate or immerse the battery pack in the water as this can be dangerous.
• Never short-circuit the battery pack terminals, as this can cause damage to the equipment or lead to
heating of the battery which may cause burns.
• Unnecessary prolonged charging (overcharging) can deteriorate battery performance.
• The battery pack should be stored in a dry place where temperature is in -10ºC to +45ºC (-14ºF to
+113ºF) range. Temperatures outside this range can cause the battery liquid to leak. Exposure to
prolonged high humidity can cause corrosion of metal components.
• Battery-packs are a consuming part. When its operating time becomes considerably short after a
normal charge, please consider that the pack is exhausted and replace it with a new one.
• The battery pack is recyclable. Check with your local waste officials for details on recycling options or
proper disposal in your area.
• Use specified genuine chargers only to charge battery packs. Use of other chargers may cause
damage to products, you and your property.
• Never carry battery packs together with conductive articles such as metals in a same bag to prevent
from short-circuiting. Put the packs only in nylon bags to carry them safely.
• Even if you do not use the battery pack for a long time, charge it at least once every three months to
prevent deterioration.
