Review the following tips before charging your
radios:
CAUTION: Do not attempt to recharge
alkaline batteries. Doing so can
create a safety hazard or damage the
radio.
• Install the batteries before connecting the AC
adapter to the radio and power source.
• The battery icon flashes while the radio
charges, whether the radio is turned on or
not. The charge stops after 14 hours of
continuous charging. If there is a power
interruption, the charging timer resets to 14
hours. If the radio is off and charging stops,
the battery icon stops flashing.
• Charge time may vary depending on the
battery life remaining. For fastest charging,
turn off the radio before charging.
• If battery power is low, you cannot operate
the radio even using external power. If you
try to transmit while power is low, the radio
will automatically turn off. Recharge the
batteries.
GMR3050-2C charges through a microUSB
Y-branch cable (provided) with an AC adapter
end that plugs into an AC power source.
1. Plug one branch of the microUSB Y-Cable
into each radio's microUSB charge port.
2. Insert the AC adapter end into an AC
power source (wall plug).
3. The radio is fully charged when the battery
charging icon stops flashing.

manual with the feature that uses it.
Choosing a Channel
Your radio has 22 channels you can use to talk
to others. In order to speak to someone, each of
you must be set to the same channel and privacy
code.
Each of the channels 1-22 may have any one of
the privacy codes, 0 (OFF), or 1-121 selected.

RBRC INFORMATION
To clean the radio, use a soft cloth dampened with
water. Do not use cleaners or solvents because they
can harm the body of the unit and leak inside, causing
permanent damage. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to clean
the battery contacts. Do not submerge the unit in
water. If the unit gets wet, turn it off and remove the
batteries immediately.
Dry the battery compartment with a soft cloth to
minimize potential water damage. Leave the battery
compartment cover off overnight to ensure complete
drying. Do not use the radio until the unit is completely
dry.
Your radio might cause TV or radio interference even
when it is operating properly. To determine whether
your radio is causing the interference, turn it off. If the
interference goes away, your radio is causing it. Try to
eliminate the interference by moving your radio away
from the receiver. If you cannot eliminate the
interference, the FCC requires that you stop using the
radio.
Hazardous Environments
Do not operate the radio in hazardous environments.
Explosion or fire may result. Do not operate the radio
near unshielded electrical blasting caps.
Care and Safety
FCC PART 15/IC COMPLIANCE
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by
the party responsible for compliance could void your
authority to operate the equipment.
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.
WARNING! It is up to the user to properly operate
this radio transmitter to insure safe operation. Please
adhere to the following:
• Never change or replace anything in your radio
except the batteries.
Fonctionnement de l’appareil, lorsque porté sur le
corps. Cet appareil a été testé et s’est avéré conforme

port sur le corps à l’aide des accessoires Uniden
inclus et conçus pour cet appareil. L’utilisation
d'accessoires ne respectant pas les exigences
d'exposition RF d’Industrie Canada doit être évitée.
WARNING! Read this information before using the
radio. 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.
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.)
• Never open your radio’s case.
For body-worn operation, this device has been tested
and meets the Industry Canada RF exposure
guidelines when used with Uniden accessories
supplied or designated for this product. Use of other

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.
Under certain conditions, radios can interfere with
blasting operations and may cause an explosion. Turn
your radio OFF to prevent accidental transmission
when in a blasting area or in areas posted: "Turn off
two-way radio." Construction crews often use remote
control RF devices to set off explosives.
