Getting started
Before using your portable radio, please read the important safety and
compliance information provided with your radio. The safety and
compliance information is also available for download from the Tait
Support website (www.taitworld.com/technical).
• Do not damage the Li-ion battery. A damaged battery can cause an
explosion or fire.
• Battery fluid is corrosive. Avoid contact with the Li-ion battery if it
appears to be leaking.
• Charge the Li-ion battery only in the Tait charger that is specified to
charge it. Discontinue charging that gives off extreme heat or a
burning odour.
• Only use the radio for work-related purposes. It is not authorized for
any other use.
• Do not talk (transmit) on the radio more that the rated transmit duty
cycle of 50%.
• When listening and talking on the radio, hold it upright in front of your
face so that radio and antenna are at least 2.5cm (1 inch) away from
any part of your face. Keeping the radio at the recommended distance
is important because exposure to RF decreases rapidly the further
away the antenna is from your body.
• If you wear your radio, you must always put it in a carrying accessory
that has been specifically approved by Tait for this radio. Using nonapproved body-worn accessories may mean you expose yourself to
higher levels of RF than recommended by the FCC’s occupational/
controlled environment RF exposure limits.
• Ensure you only use Tait-approved antennas, batteries, and accessories.
• Switch off the radio at filling stations or near flammable liquids or
gases.
• Switch off the radio in the vicinity of explosive devices and blasting
zones.
• Switch off the radio before boarding an aircraft.
• Using a radio while driving a vehicle may violate the laws and legislation that apply in your country or state.
• Switch off the radio where it could interfere with electronic devices
such as vehicular electronics systems or medical devices and
equipment.
