RADIO OPERATOR WARNING
Icom requires the radio operator to meet the
FCC Requirements for Radio Frequency Exposure. An omnidirectional antenna with gain not
greater than 9 dBi must be mounted a miniW ARN ING
mum of 5 meters (measured from the lowest
point of the antenna) vertically above the main
deck and all possible personnel. This is the minimum safe
separation distance estimated to meet all RF exposure compliance requirements. This 5 meter distance is based on the
FCC Safe Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE) distance
of 3 meters added to the height of an adult (2 meters) and is
appropriate for all vessels.
For watercraft without suitable structures, the antenna must
be mounted so as to maintain a minimum of 1 meter vertically between the antenna, (measured from the lowest point
of the antenna), to the heads of all persons AND all persons
must stay outside of the 3 meter MPE radius.
Do not transmit with radio and antenna when persons are
within the MPE radius of the antenna, unless such persons
(such as driver or radio operator) are shielded from antenna
field by a grounded metallic barrier. The MPE Radius is the
minimum distance from the antenna axis that person should
maintain in order to avoid RF exposure higher than the allowable MPE level set by FCC.
iii
FAILURE TO OBSERVE THESE LIMITS MAY ALLOW
THOSE WITHIN THE MPE RADIUS TO EXPERIENCE RF
RADIATION ABSORPTION WHICH EXCEEDS THE FCC
MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE (MPE) LIMIT.
IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE RADIO OPERATOR
TO ENSURE THAT THE MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE LIMITS ARE OBSERVED AT ALL TIMES DURING
RADIO TRANSMISSION. THE RADIO OPERATOR IS TO
ENSURE THAT NO BYSTANDERS COME WITHIN THE
RADIUS OF THE MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE
LIMITS.
Determining MPE Radius
THE MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE (MPE) RADIUS HAS BEEN ESTIMATED TO BE A RADIUS OF
ABOUT 3M PER OET BULLETIN 65 OF THE FCC.
THIS ESTIMATE IS MADE ASSUMING THE MAXIMUM
POWER OF THE RADIO AND ANTENNAS WITH A MAXIMUM GAIN OF 9dBi ARE USED FOR A SHIP MOUNTED
SYSTEM.
AVERTISSEMENT POUR LES OPÉRATEURS RADIO
Icom exige que l'opérateur radio se conforme aux
exigences de la FCC en matière d'exposition aux
radiofréquences. Une antenne omnidirectionnelle
dont le gain ne dépasse pas 9dBi doit être fixée
à une distance minimale de 5 mètres (mesurée
AVERTISSEMENT
depuis le point le plus bas de l'antenne) verticalement au-dessus du pont principal et de tout le personnel qui peut
s'y trouver. Il s'agit de la distance de sécurité minimale prévue pour
satisfaire aux exigences de conformité en matière d'exposition aux
RF. Cette distance de 5 mètres est établie en fonction de l'exposition
maximale admissible sécuritaire de 3 mètres établie par la FCC, à
laquelle on ajoute la hauteur d'un adulte (2 mètres); cette distance
convient pour tous les navires.
Dans le cas des embarcations sans structure convenable, l'antenne
doit être fixée de façon à maintenir une distance minimale de 1 mètre
verticalement entre cette antenne (mesurée depuis son point le plus
bas) et la tête de toute personne présente; toutes les personnes
présentes doivent se tenir à l'extérieur d'un rayon d'exposition maximale admissible de 3 mètres.
Ne pas émettre à l'aide de la radio et de l'antenne lorsque des
personnes se trouvent à l'intérieur du rayon d'exposition maximale
admissible de cette antenne, à moins que ces personnes (comme
le conducteur ou l'opérateur radio) ne soient protégées du champ
de l'antenne par un écran métallique relié à la masse. Le rayon
d'exposition maximale admissible équivaut à la distance minimale
que cette personne doit maintenir entre elle et l'axe de l'antenne pour
éviter une exposition aux RF supérieure au niveau d'exposition maximale admissible fixé par la FCC.
LE NON-RESPECT DE CES LIMITES PEUT CAUSER, POUR LES
PERSONNES SITUÉES DANS LE RAYON D'EXPOSITION MAXIMALE ADMISSIBLE, UNE ABSORPTION DE RAYONNEMENT DE
RF SUPÉRIEURE À L'EXPOSITION MAXIMALE ADMISSIBLE
FIXÉE PAR LA FCC.
L'OPÉRATEUR RADIO EST RESPONSABLE D'ASSURER QUE
LES LIMITES D'EXPOSITION MAXIMALE ADMISSIBLE SOIENT
RESPECTÉES EN TOUT TEMPS PENDANT LA TRANSMISSION
RADIO. L'OPÉRATEUR RADIO DOIT S'ASSURER QU'AUCUNE
PERSONNE PRÉSENTE NE SE SITUE À L'INTÉRIEUR DU RAYON D'EXPOSITION MAXIMALE ADMISSIBLE.
Établir le rayon d'exposition maximale admissible
ON ESTIME QUE LE RAYON D'EXPOSITION MAXIMALE ADMISSIBLE EST D'ENVIRON 3 M, TEL QUE STIPULÉ DANS LE BULLETIN OET 65 DE LA FCC. CETTE DISTANCE ESTIMÉE TIENT
COMPTE D'UN SYSTÈME INSTALLÉ SUR UN NAVIRE UTILISANT
LA PUISSANCE MAXIMALE DE LA RADIO ET DES ANTENNES
DONT LE GAIN MAXIMAL EST DE 9dBi.

OPERATING RULES
DPriorities
• Read all rules and regulations pertaining to call priorities,
and keep an up-to-date copy handy. Safety and distress
calls take priority over all others.
• You must monitor Channel 16 when you are not operating
on another channel.
• False or fraudulent distress calls are prohibited under law.
DDPrivacy
If required, the Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit
must be posted or kept with the operator. If required, only a
licensed radio operator may operate a transceiver.
• Information overheard, but not intended for you, cannot lawfully be used in any way.
• Indecent or profane language is prohibited.
However, non-licensed individuals may talk over a transceiver
if a licensed operator starts, supervises, ends the call and
makes the necessary log entries.
DDRadio licenses
A current copy of the applicable government rules and regulations is only required to be on hand for vessels in which
a radio telephone is compulsory. However, even if you are
not required to have these on hand it is your responsibility to
be thoroughly acquainted with all pertinent rules and regulations.
(1) SHIP STATION LICENSE
You may require a current radio station license before using
the transceiver. It is unlawful to operate a ship station which is
not licensed, but required to be.
If required, contact your dealer or the appropriate government agency for a Ship-Radiotelephone license application.
This government-issued license states the call sign which is
your craft’s identification for radio purposes.
1
(2) OPERATOR’S LICENSE
A Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit is the license
most often held by small vessel radio operators when a radio
is not required for safety purposes.
NOTE: Even though the transceiver is capable of operation on VHF marine channels 3, 21, 23, 61, 64, 81, 82 and
83, according to FCC regulations these simplex channels
cannot be lawfully used by the general population in USA
waters.

AIS RECEIVER (Depending on versions)
■■About AIS
■■AIS Classes
AIS (The automatic identification system) is primarily used for
collision-risk management and navigation safety. It automatically transmits and receives vessel information, such as the
vessel name, MMSI code, vessel type, position data, speed,
course, destination and more. Information is exchanged
among the vessels and/or base stations on the VHF maritime
mobile band. The information helps to identify other nearby
vessels or stations by displaying the received data on a plotter or a radar screen.
There are seven types of AIS stations; vessels, base stations,
Search and Rescue (SAR), Aids to Navigation (AtoN), Search
and Rescue Transmitter (AIS-SART), MOB (Man OverBoard)
and EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon)AIS.
Under the Safety Of Life At Sea (SOLAS) convention, all
SOLAS vessels, as described below, are required to install a
Class A AIS transponder:
• Upwards of 300 gross tonnage engaged on international
voyages.
• Passenger vessels, irrespective of size, engaged on international voyages.
• Upwards of 500 gross tonnage not engaged on international
voyages.
A Class B AIS transponder is designed to be interoperability
with Class A units, but not to impact the Class A network.
Many commercial vessels, and some leisure craft, not classified as requiring a Class A unit, choose to install a Class B
unit to avoid accidents at sea.

DD CPA/TCPA (Continued)
• Slow Warn
The GPS receiver calculated COG data of a vessel that is at
anchor or drifting is unreliable, and therefore the CPA and
TCPA data may not be calculated correctly. If a vessel is anchored in your alarm zone, the unreliable data can cause the
collision alarm to sound many times, even if there is no real
danger. To prevent this, when the anchored vessel’s SOG is
less than this set value, the Slow Warn function assumes that
vessel’s COG is fixed towards your vessel and an alarm will
sound.
• CPA, TCPA
Enter CPA (Closest Point of Approach) and TCPA (Time to
CPA) values.
These settings help you find a dangerous target to avoid a
collision. The icon blinks on the plotter display and/or the
alarm buzzer sounds, when the AIS target is closer than your
CPA and TCPA settings.
