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 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.
The warranty period of dust and splash resistance is the same as the period of the product warranty.
■ 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, 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 and injury. 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℃ in charging. Charging outside this range
may not fully charge the battery.
▲Always switch off the transceiver equipped with a battery before charging. Otherwise, it will interfere
with correct charging.
▲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.

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.

How to Charge the battery pack
1.Plug the AC adaptor into the AC outlet, then plug into the
DC jack ,the indicator lights orange for 1 second and goes
out---waits to charge.
2.Slide the battery or transceiver with battery into the
charger; make sure the battery terminals are in contact
with the charging terminals . LED turns into twinkling RED

BATTERY INFORMATION
NOTE:
▲ Trouble means battery heating, short-circuit or charger malfunction. Remove the battery pack from
the charger immediately and contact to your local dealer for services.
▲ The max trickle pre-charging time is 30 minutes. In case the red indicator continues to blink longer,
please stop charging and consult with your local dealer for services.
▲ It is known that Li-Ion battery packs heat up over 400℃ by itself when kept in a temperature of over
80℃ for extended period of time. Although the packs are protected against overheating with a protective
circuit, never leave the battery packs in a car or similar locations in hot seasons.
▲ Li-ion packs may deteriorate by over 30% regardless of conditions after 3 years. This is a nature of Liion pack and not a defect of the product.
▲ The charger is to charge the battery pack only. It is not an AC adapter to operate the radio. Never
attempt to transmit the radio with using the charger as it will cause the damage to the charger and a
repair/replace may become necessary.
▲ The charge should be conducted in an ambient temperature with a minimum proper air-conditioning
in an extremely hot or cold seasons.
▲ Try charging the battery pack only when having trouble charging with the radio.In case the radio may
have troubles,the charge can't be conducted properly.If the battery pack can be charged alone, please take
the radio to your local dealer for services.
