SAFETY AND GENERAL
INFORMATION
Please observe the following general safety
precautions during all phases of operation,
service and repair of this equipment.
■ Turn radio off prior to entering any area
with a potentially explosive atmosphere,
such as gas, petroleum, chemicals, blasting
caps, etc.
■ Do not charge the battery in a potentially
explosive atmosphere.
■ Do not use any portable radio that has a
damaged antenna, as it can burn skin.
■ This equipment is to be serviced only by
an authorized Alpha OneTM Service Center.
Any service performed by unauthorized
technicians will void the warranty.
■ Turn radio off when near electrical blasting
caps to avoid possible interference with
blasting operations. Obey posted signs
such as those in hospitals or blasting areas
advising people to turn off all two-way radios.
Obey pilots and flight attendants instructions
to turn off radios on airplanes.
■ Do not place a radio over an air bag or in
an air bag’s deployment area, as the force
with which an air bag is inflated could propel
the radio and may cause serious injury.
■ Do not place the radio close to a heat
source or expose the radio to direct sunlight
for a prolonged time.
■ Hold the radio while in use in a vertical
position with the microphone one to two
inches away from your lips. While wearing
a transmitting radio, keep the radio and its
antenna at least one inch away from your
body.

BATTERY INFORMATION
Initial Use
New batteries are shipped from the
factory uncharged. Charge a new battery
approximately 12 hours prior to initial use
(applies to Ni-CD, Ni-MH and Li-Ion batteries
charged with slow or rapid rate charger).
NOTE: The Indicator Light will turn GREEN
approximately one hour after battery is
placed in a Rapid Rate Charger; however, it
is strongly recommended the battery charge
for 12 hours. This initializes it and allows
for the best performance. Maximum battery
capacity is normally achieved after two
or three full charge / discharge cycles. If
battery power runs low, recharge the battery.
Batteries that are brand new or that have
been stored for an extended period of time
(several weeks), may require more time to
fully charge.
Applicable Battery Packs
To reduce the risk of injury, use only batteries
specifically designed for your Alpha OneTM
two-way radio.
Caution
1. To avoid risk of personal injury, do not
dispose of batteries in a fire.
2. Dispose of batteries according to local
recycling regulations. Do not dispose as
household waste.
3. Never attempt to disassemble the battery.
Battery Tips
1. When charging a battery, keep it at a
temperature between 41°F ~ 104°F (5°C ~
40°C) to ensure a full charge. Temperatures
outside this range significantly reduce
battery life.
2. Before charging a battery attached to
a radio, turn the radio off to ensure a full
charge. Never leave a radio on while it is
Copyright © 2015 RCA Communications Systems
APR100 Business Two-Way Radios Instruction Manual
in the charger, as it can damage both the
battery and the radio; the charger is not a
radio stand.
3. Do not cut off the power supply or remove
battery while charging.
4. Never charge a battery that is wet. Dry it
with soft cloth prior to charging.
5. The battery will eventually weaken. When
the operating time (talk-time and standby
time) is noticeably shorter than normal,
replace the battery.
Tips To Prolong Battery Life
1. Battery performance greatly decreases
at temperatures below -4°F (-20°C).Having
a spare battery is always necessary in
extremely cold environments. A cold battery
may work again when it returns to room
temperature,so keep it for later use.
2. Dust on the battery contact may cause the
battery not to work or charge properly. Use a
clean dry cloth to wipe it before attaching the
battery to the radio.
3. Batteries with damaged contacts can
be extremely dangerous. Any battery with
damage to one or more contacts should be
replaced immediately and not used under
any circumstances.
Battery Storage
1. Fully charge a battery before storing it for
an extended period of time to avoid battery
damage due to over-discharge.
2. Recharge a battery after three months
storage to avoid reduced battery capacity
due to over-discharge.
3. When storing a battery, keep it in a dry
place at room temperature.
Charging the Battery
1. When the battery level is very low, recharge
it. It is never recommended to completely
drain the battery, which may cause your
battery to malfunction and no longer accept
a charge.
Copyright © 2015 RCA Communications Systems

10
APR100 Business Two-Way Radios Instruction Manual
2. Use only chargers certified for use with
your Alpha OneTM radio and battery. When
the charger’s LED illuminates red, it is an
indication that the battery is being correctly
charged. When the LED illuminates green, the
battery charge is complete.
Steps for setting up your charger
1. Plug the adapter’s AC connector into the AC
outlet socket.
2. Plug the adapter’s DC connector into the
DC socket on the back of the charger.
3. Place the radio with the battery attached, or
the battery alone, in the charger.
4. Make sure the battery contact is touching
the charging terminals. The charging process
begins when the red LED light illuminates.
5. The green LED light will illuminate
approximately one hour later, indicating the
battery is fully charged.
ANTENNA INFORMATION
Stubby (3”) antennas are ideal for
communication within limited range, and
standard (6”) antennas optimize coverage;
the longer the antenna, the better the
coverage is. If you use a stubby antenna for
convenience instead of a standard length
antenna, you can expect approximately a
30% reduction in coverage. When using a
two-way radio outdoors, heavy rain, snow,
buildings or thick forest can dramatically
reduce radio coverage.

FUNCTIONS AND
SETTINGS
The following radio functions can be enabled
by your Alpha OneTM Sales and Service
Center through the radio’s programming
software.
BUSY CHANNEL LOCKOUT
Avoid interference with other users on the
same channel by preventing transmission if
another talkgroup is currently speaking over
the air. The radio will generate a continuous
tone when the PTT is pressed and will not
allow a second transmission to “step-on”the
current conversation. Releasing the PTT will
cancel the tone.
VOX SENSITIVITY
The VOX Sensitivity can be adjusted with
selectable levels between 1-9, where 9 is the
most sensitive.
TX POWER
The transmit power can be adjusted between
low (1 Watt), medium (2 Watt) and high (4
Watt).
SQUELCH LEVEL
The purpose of squelch is to mute audio
output from the speaker when no signals are
present. Open the squelch to unmute radio
speaker. The selectable levels are 0-9.
AUDIO SETTING
Your Alpha OneTM two-way radio has
optional audio indication consisted of short
beeps. The audio indicators can be set as a
confirmation of one of the following actions:
radio turn on/off or key press.
CHANNEL ANNUNCIATION
When changing channels, the radio will
announce the newly selected channel.
Copyright © 2015 RCA Communications Systems
APR100 Business Two-Way Radios Instruction Manual
Note: If the Audio Indication settings are
turned off the Channel Annunciation function
will be disabled.
codes can only be set by your Alpha OneTM
Sales and Service Center using the radio’s
programming software.
TIME OUT TIMER (TOT)
EMERGENCY ALERT
This limits the amount of time the radio user
can continuously transmit on a channel. If
the user holds down the PTT longer than the
preprogrammed limit, the radio automatically
stops transmitting and generates a warning
tone until the PTT is released. Your Alpha
One Sales and Service Center may program
the alert tone that sounds before the TOT
timer nearly expires. See Glossary for the
definition of Time-out Timer.
CTCSS/DCS
The setting of CTCSS/CDCSS code in
transmitting party must match that in the
receiving party for the receiver to unmute
its output audio. The CTCSS/CDCSS
In case of Emergency you may activate the
Emergency Function by pressing the Orange
Emergency Key on the radio. The radio will
send an alert tone to all radios within your
talk group.
Note: In order to receive the Emergency
Alert all radios must be on the same channel,
programmed with the same frequency and
CTCSS/CDCSS codes.
BATTERY SAVE
This function is to save battery power and
prolong the operation time. Once no activity
or operations are occurring on the channel,
the radio will be on and off alternately.

ROGER BEEP
Roger Beep is an alert tone emitted
by receiving radio at the end of each
transmission indicating the end of the call.
SQUELCH TAIL ELIMINATION
This function eliminates the Roger Beep at
the end of the transmission.
LOW BATTERY ALERT
For extra convenience, when the battery
level is low, the LED flashes red and a lowpitched tone sounds every ten seconds to
alert users to recharge the battery.
SIDE KEYS
Your Alpha OneTM two-way radio has two
programmable side keys, SK1 and SK2. The
