Set Squelch
Use squelch to eliminate any annoying background noise when
there are no signals present.
NOTE
Make sure to first select a channel not in use before setting the
squelch.
Think of the squelch control as a gate. If you
increase the squelch level to maximum, it raises
the “Squelch Gate” so only the strongest signals
get through.
If you decrease the squelch level to minimum, it
lowers the “Squelch Gate”’ to the extent that weak
signals can get through.
If unwanted weak and noisy signals are getting
through, increase the squelch level (raise the
“Squelch Gate”) to a medium level. Now only
medium and strong signals get through.

WEATHER MODE
The NOAA weather channels now cooperate with the FCC to
alert you of other hazards besides weather (child abduction
alerts, nuclear, biological, etc.). In weather mode, the radio
monitors one of the nine NOAA weather channels. If any type of
alert is received, the radio sounds an alert tone and the display
blinks.

channel, press the WX/ALERT key again.
Weather mode with Weather Alert Watch
Because weather mode already monitors the weather channels,
you don’t need Weather Alert Watch to check the weather
channel every seven seconds. If you activate Weather Alert
Watch while operating in weather mode, it operates as a type of
“sleep" mode; the radio stays on the weather channel and mutes
the speaker. If an alert is detected, the radio sounds an alert
tone and turns the speaker back on. This mode is very useful
when you are anchoring for the night but want to keep informed
of hazards.

MAINTENANCE & TROUBLESHOOTING
Due to its rugged design, your radio requires very little
maintenance. However, it is a precision electronic instrument,
so you should follow a few precautions:
xx If the antenna has been damaged, do not transmit except in
an emergency situation. Transmitting with a defective antenna
may cause further radio damage.
xx You are responsible for continued FCC technical compliance of
your radio.
xx You should arrange for periodic performance checks with your
Uniden dealer.

REGULATIONS AND SAFETY WARNINGS
WARNING! Read this information before using the radio.
RBRC Information
As part of our commitment to protect the environment and
conserve natural resources, Uniden voluntarily participates in an
RBRC® industry program to collect and recycle used Ni-MH
batteries within the US.
Please call 1-800-8-BATTERY for information on
Ni-MH battery recycling in your area. (RBRC® is a
registered trademark of the Rechargeable Battery
Recycling Corporation.)
MARITIME RADIO SERVICES OPERATION
Warning! This transmitter will operate on channels/frequencies that
have restricted use in the United States. The channel assignments
include frequencies assigned for exclusive use of the U.S. Coast
Guard, use in Canada, and use in international waters. Operation
on these frequencies without proper authorization is strictly
forbidden. See page 25 for tables of the available channels and
their uses. If you are still not certain which channels to use, see the
FCC maritime radio page at the FCC website
(http://wireless.fcc.gov/marine/) or contact the FCC Call Center
at 1-888-CALL-FCC. For individuals requiring a license, such as
commercial users, you should obtain a license application from
your nearest FCC field office (for US users) or Industry Canada (for
Canadian users).
Uniden Atlantis 150 Owner’s Manual
E-31
BASIC RADIO GUIDELINES
You should familiarize yourself with the rules on marine radios and
be aware of which rules apply to your boat. Complete guidelines
for all ship and marine radio types can be found at the US Coast
Guard website under the topic Radio Info for Boaters (the direct link
is:
http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/marcomms/boater.htm). Here are
a few guidelines that affect nearly all boaters:
xx If you have a VHF radio on your boat, you must maintain a watch
on channel 16 (156.800 MHz) whenever the radio is not being used
to communicate. Starting in 2004, if a radio is carried, it must be on
and set to channel 16 whenever your boat is underway.
xx If you hear a distress call, wait a few minutes to let a shore station
or Coast Guard vessel respond. If no other station has responded
after 5 minutes, you must respond to the distress call.
xx Do not make false mayday or distress calls as a prank or to test
your radio. (This is essentially like making a false 9-1-1 call; you
may be subject to fines.)
FCC/IC Information
xx Certification: FCC Part 15 or I.C. RSS
xx Output Power: 2.5W
xx Emission: 16K0F3E
xx Transmitter Frequency Range: 156.025-157.425 MHz
This device complies with Industry Canada licence-exempt RSS
standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1)
this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device
must accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.
Unauthorized changes or modifications to this equipment may void
compliance with I.C. Rules. Any change or modification must be
approved in writing by Uniden.
Changes or modifications not approved by Uniden could void the
user’s authority to operate the equipment.
E-32
Uniden Atlantis 150 Owner’s Manual
L’appareil est conforme aux normes d’Industrie Canada. Son
fonctionnement est soumis aux deux conditions suivantes
: (1) Ce dispositif ne doit pas causer d’interférences et (2),
il doit pouvoir accepter les interférences, incluant celles
pouvant nuire à son fonctionnement normal.
Tous les changements apportés à cet appareil, s’ils ne sont
pas expressément approuvés par Uniden ou toute utilisation
de celui-ci d’une autre manière que celle décrite dans ce
guide peut annuler votre autorisation de le faire fonctionner.
FCC RF Exposure Information
In August 1996 the Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) of the United States with its action in Report and
Order FCC 96-326 adopted an updated safety standard for
human exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic energy
emitted by FCC regulated transmitters. Those guidelines
are consistent with the safety standard previously set by
both U.S. and international standards bodies. The design
of the radio complies with the FCC guidelines and these
international standards.
Never allow children to operate the radio without adult
supervision and the knowledge of the following guidelines.
WARNING! It is up to the user to properly operate this radio
transmitter to insure safe operation. Do not use the radio with
a damaged antenna. If a damaged antenna comes into contact
with the skin, a minor burn may result. Please contact your local
dealer for a replacement antenna.
RENSEIGNEMENTS DE LA FCC SUR
L’EXPOSITION AUX FRÉQUENCES RF
AVERTISSEMENT! Au mois d’août 1996, la Commission
fédérale des communications (FCC) des États-Unis, par le
biais de son intervention dans le rapport et l’ordonnance
96-326 ‘report and order FCC 96-326’, a mis à jour
les normes relatives à l’exposition humaine à l’énergie
Uniden Atlantis 150 Owner’s Manual
E-33
électromagnétique des fréquences radio émises par les
transmetteurs autorisés par la FCC. Ces directives répondent
aux normes de sécurité établies précédemment par les
organismes américains et internationaux responsables de
la conformité à ces normes. Le design et la fabrication de
cette radio sont conformes aux directives de la FCC et à ces
normes internationales.
Ce dispositif est conforme aux exigences de sécurité
relatives au débit d’absorption spécifique (DAS) des
radiofréquences lorsque vous respectez un régime
d’utilisation de 50 % (temps de conversation).
Ne laissez jamais un enfant utiliser un appareil radio doté
d’un transmetteur sans supervision adéquate.
AVERTISSEMENT! Il n’en tient qu’à l’utilisateur de faire
fonctionner la radio dotée d’un transmetteur de manière
sécuritaire.
N’utilisez pas la radio si l’antenne est endommagée. Si une
antenne endommagée entre en contact avec la peau, une
brûlure légère peut se produire.
Body-Worn Operation
This device was evaluated for body-worn operations with the
supplied belt-clip accessory. (All necessary accessories are
included in the package; any additional or optional accessories
are not required for compliance with the guidelines.) Third
party accessories (unless approved by the manufacturer)
should be avoided as these might not comply with FCC RF
exposure guidelines.
For hand-held operation, the radio should be held 1 inch from
the user’s face. The use of accessories that do not satisfy
these requirements may not comply with FCC RF exposure
requirements and should be avoided. For more information
about RF exposure, please visit the FCC website at www.
fcc.gov.
