Safety Information

The TX6160 is a radio transmitting device.

When transmitting, keep the antenna more than 25 mm from any part of the head or body.

Do not transmit near electrical blasting equipment or in explosive atmospheres.

Do not allow children to operate a radio transmitter unsupervised.

Important Information Concerning UHF CB Radio

The use of the Citizen Band radio service is licensed in Australia by the ACMA Radio communications

(Citizens Band radio Stations) Class Licence and in New Zealand by the Ministry of Economic

Development New Zealand (MED). A General User Radio Licence for Citizens Band radio and operation is subject to conditions contained in those licences. The class licence for users and equipment operating in the CB/PRS 477 MHz band has been amended. This radio meets the new 80 channel standard.

In simple terms the same amount of spectrum is available; however, radio transceivers can now operate in a narrower bandwidth and hence use less spectrum. These radios are generally referred to as narrowband or 12.5 kHz radios. By using 12.5 kHz channel spacing instead of 25 kHz, the 40 channels originally allocated can now be expanded to 80 channels thereby doubling the channel capacity and relieving congestion in the UHF CB/PRS band.

Original 40 channel wideband radios will continue to operate on the original 40 channels, however they will not be able to converse on the newer channels 41 – 80. The newer narrowband radios will be able to converse with all older 40 channel wideband radios on all channels 1 – 40 as well as the newer channels allocated from 41 – 80. The mixing of narrowband and wideband radios in the same spectrum can cause some possible operating issues of interference and varying levels of received volume.

Possible Issues

When a new narrowband radio receives a transmission from an older wideband radio the speech may sound loud and distorted – simply adjust your radio volume for best performance. When an older wideband radio receives a signal from a new narrowband radio, the speech may sound quiet – simply adjust your radio volume for best performance.

TX6160 Instruction Manual

Depending on how close your receiving radio is to another transmitting radio, there can be interference from the transmitting radio if it is using a channel adjacent to the channel you are listening to. Simply try going up or down a few channels from the currently selected channel.

The above situations are not a fault of the radio but a symptom of operating wideband and narrowband radios in the same bandwidth. This possible interference will decrease over time as the population of wideband radios ages and decreases.

Emergency Channels

The ACMA has allocated channels 5/35 for emergency use only. Channel 5 is the primary Simplex

Emergency Channel. Where a channel 5 repeater is available, you should select Duplex on channel 5.

Channel 35 is the input channel for the channel 5 repeater. Therefore channel 35 should also not be used for anything other than emergency transmissions.

Telemetry Channels

ACMA regulations have allocated channels 22 and 23 for telemetry-only applications and have prohibited the transmission of speech on these channels. Consequently the radio has a transmitinhibit applied to channels 22 and 23.

In the event that additional telemetry/telecommand channels are approved by the ACMA, these channels shall be added to those currently listed where voice transmission is inhibited. Currently, transmissions on channels 61, 62 and 63 are also inhibited and these channels are reserved for future allocation.

Important Advice

Read all instructions carefully and completely before operating your radio and retain this manual for future reference.

Never connect the radio to a power source other than the supplied battery. This may damage your radio.

Do not place your radio in front of a vehicle airbag.

Do not use your radio with a damaged antenna.

Do not attempt to modify your radio in any way.

Always charge your radio at normal room temperature.

Always switch off your radio where notices restrict the use of two-way radio or mobile telephones.

Use only GME approved rechargeable battery packs with the supplied charger.

Avoid storing or charging your radio in direct sunlight.

Avoid storing or using your radio where temperatures are below -20°C or above +60°C.

Content TX6160 Instruction Manual

TX6160

The single desktop charger (BCD020) will charge a fully discharged battery pack to full capacity in around 4 hours.

To charge the battery:

1. Place the radio into the cradle with the battery attached. The LED will light red to indicate the battery is charging.

2. When the battery has charged, the LED will change to green.

The fully charged battery can be left on the charger until it is needed.

TX6160TP

The dual desktop charger (BCD021) supplied with the TX6160TP will charge two fully discharged battery packs to full capacity in around 8 hours. The battery packs are charged sequentially (around

4 hours each) starting with the front battery. Once the front battery has charged, the charger will automatically switch to the rear battery.

When charging a single battery pack, the front slot should be used.

Charging the battery

1. Place one radio into the front slot and the second radio into the rear slot. The left LED will light red confirming the battery in the front slot is now charging and the right LED will light amber indicating the battery in the rear slot is on standby.

2. Once the front battery has charged, the left LED will become green and the right LED will switch to red indicating the rear battery is now charging. Once the rear battery has charged, the right LED will also change to green.

Once the batteries are fully charged they can be left on the charger until they are needed.

When charging two battery packs, the battery in the front slot has priority and will be charged first.

If the red LED does not light when the battery is first inserted, the battery voltage may be too low to begin a normal charge cycle. In this case simply leave the battery on the charger until the charger has raised the battery voltage to an acceptable level. The red LED will then light and the normal charge cycle will begin.

If the LED flashes red or Amber while charging, a fault condition has been detected. Try removing the battery then reinserting it. If the LED continues to flash, remove the battery and contact your GME service centre for advice.

Content TX6160 Instruction Manual

Battery Usage

The time taken to discharge the battery pack will depend on how you use the radio. The battery pack supplied is powerful enough for a full day’s use under average conditions using low power. The sections that follow provide directions and recommendations on the optimal use of the battery pack.

Battery Charge Status

The TX6160 radio incorporates a battery charge status feature, enabled by default, which briefly displays the battery capacity from 1%-99% when the radio is switched on.

To enable/disable this feature, press and hold the Scan and Menu buttons simultaneously while switching the radio on.

Battery Low Alert

When the battery icon blinks on the radio’s display, the battery level is low and the battery pack should be recharged. If the battery is not charged, an audio tone will then sound to warn the user that the battery is almost discharged.

Conserving Battery Power

The radio has built-in power saving features to help you get the maximum amount of time between charges from your Li-ion battery pack. If you need to operate your radio in a situation where you require maximum battery life (e.g. a remote site where there is no convenient recharging facility nearby) the following hints can greatly reduce the amount of power drawn from the battery pack.

Standby Mode

The radio will automatically enter the ‘Standby’ mode when it is inactive (i.e. not transmitting or receiving signals).

While in Standby mode it will still check for incoming signals but it will draw considerably less power from the battery pack. As soon as a signal is heard or the keys are pressed the radio will ‘wake up’ again. This Standby mode is automatic and by itself can extend the battery life by many hours.

Use CTCSS/DCS

If you are expecting to receive signals on a busy channel, you can program that channel for CTCSS/

DCS operation and get the other person to call you using the same CTCSS/DCS tone. Your radio will then remain in Standby and ignore all other signals until your selected CTCSS/DCS tone is received.

50158 18

Content TX6160 Instruction Manual

Avoid Scanning

The radio draws more power from the battery pack when scanning than when monitoring a single channel. This is because it must ‘wake up’ more often to monitor each channel for activity. In addition, scanning increases the chance of finding a signal thereby keeping the receiver ‘awake’ and the squelch open more often.

Use Low Transmit Power

The transmitter has both high and low power settings. If you are only operating over short distances, are in a reasonably high location or are close to a local repeater, try using the Low transmitter power setting. This reduces the transmitter power to 1 watt effectively doubling the talk time available.

General Operation

Turning the Radio On/Off

1. Rotate the Volume control clockwise past the click to turn the radio on. The radio will emit a confirmation tone when it is switched on.

2. Rotate the Volume control counter-clockwise past the click to turn the radio off again.

Adjusting the Volume

With the unit powered on, rotate the Volume control clockwise to increase the volume and counterclockwise to decrease the volume.

Display Lighting

The LCD backlighting activates automatically whenever a key other than the PTT is pressed, and turns off automatically after about 5 seconds.

Receiving Signals

While the radio is not receiving signals, it will remain in standby mode to conserve battery power and ‘Save’ will be displayed on the LCD screen. When a signal is received, the LED indicator on the upper edge of the radio will light green and the icon will appear on the display. Adjust the

Volume control for a comfortable listening level.

If the incoming signal is encoded with a CTCSS or DCS tone matching the one set in your radio, the LED indicator will light orange and you will be able to hear the signal in the speaker. If the LED indicator lights green and flashes but you cannot hear the signal, it is likely that the incoming signal is using a different CTCSS or DCS tone to that selected in your radio (see Menu options for more details on setting CTCSS/DCS tones).

If no further signals are received, the unit will return to standby mode after a few seconds.

Content TX6160 Instruction Manual

Transmitting

To transmit:

1. Press and hold the PTT ( Push-To-Talk ) switch. The other radio you are talking to must be set to the same channel.

2. Hold the radio approximately 5-8 cm from your mouth with the antenna vertical and speak into the built-in microphone.

3. While the PTT switch is pressed, the LED indicator on the upper edge of the radio will light red and the icon will appear on the LCD.

4. When you have finished speaking, release the PTT switch to receive incoming signals (it is not possible to transmit and receive at the same time). If no further signals are received, the unit will revert to Standby mode.

T he PTT switch can also be used to transmit a Call Alarm melody.

When the Call Alarm melody is enabled (see Menu options for more details on

Call Alarm settings), pressing the PTT switch twice quickly will play the Call Alarm melody in the speaker of other radios on the same channel to alert them to your call. During this time the

icon is displayed and the LED indicator will light red for about 5 seconds. The Call Alarm can only be sent once per minute.

Time-Out Timer

The radio has a built-in time-out timer that automatically limits transmissions to a maximum of

3 minutes of continuous operation. This feature is required by the ACMA to prevent accidental blocking of the frequency should your PTT become jammed or be otherwise pressed accidentally.

When the time-out timer activates, the radio will beep and “tot” is displayed briefly on the LCD.

Normal operation will be restored once the PTT is released.

Selecting Channels

When the squelch is open, the LED indicator on the upper edge of the radio will light green and the

and icons will appear on the display. During this time you will hear static or hiss if the channel is clear. Do not transmit if you hear any signals.

To close the squelch:

Briefly press the SQL key again.

The Squelch sensitivity is preset in the Menu – Squelch Level setting (see Menu options for more details on setting the Squelch sensitivity).

Keypad Lock

The Keypad Lock disables the keys to prevent accidental key presses from changing the preferred settings of the radio. When the keys are locked, the icon is displayed and all key presses are ignored except for the PTT, SQL and the Keypad unlock sequence.

To activate the Keypad Lock:

Press the F key (the F icon will appear) then hold the key until the radio beeps. The icon will appear on the display.

To cancel the Keypad Lock:

Press the F key then hold the key again until the radio beeps. The icon will disappear.

Duplex Operation

Duplex operation allows the radio to transmit on a different frequency to that which it receives. This allows operation through repeater stations in your area. Repeaters automatically re-transmit your signal over a much wider area, providing greatly increased range. The Duplex mode only works on designated repeater channels 1 – 8 and 41 – 48. With Duplex selected on one of these channels, your radio actually transmits 30 channels higher than it receives. For example, if Duplex is selected on channel 1, your radio will receive on channel 1 but will transmit on channel 31.

Duplex can be enabled or disabled on individual channels. When Duplex is enabled on the selected channel, is displayed. The Duplex mode is set through the Menu. Please refer the menu options in the Menu section further in this manual.

Scanning for Channels

To scan for channels:

1. Briefly press the Scan key. The icon will flash and the channel numbers will change as the radio scans through the channels.

2. While scanning, briefly press the or keys to change the scan direction upwards or downwards.

To exit the scan mode, briefly press the Scan key again. The radio will return to normal operation.

There must be at least 2 channels stored in the scan memory otherwise the radio will not scan.

Scanning Features

If a signal is received, the scan is paused allowing you to transmit and receive on that channel. During this time the icon will continue to flash to show that the scan is still active. Once the channel has been inactive for 5 seconds the scan will automatically resume.

Pressing the PTT switch while the radio is scanning will jump to the working channel allowing you to transmit and receive on that channel (the working channel is the channel the radio was on at the time the scan was activated). During this time the icon will continue to flash to show that the scan is still active. Once the working channel has been inactive for 5 seconds the scan will automatically resume.

If the scan is paused on a busy channel that you don’t wish to listen to, press the or keys to skip over the channel and continue scanning.

The Scan mode will reduce the overall battery life because the Standby (battery saver) feature is overridden. If the battery is running low you should avoid scanning to conserve power.

CTCSS, DCS and Silent Mode

CTCSS (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System) and DCS (Digital Coded Squelch) are similar Squelch quieting systems that allow groups of users to share the same channel without disturbing each other. The CTCSS system uses 1 of 50 low frequency tones to open and close the Squelch on the radio. The DCS system is similar to CTCSS but uses 1 of 104 digital codes to control the Squelch.

When CTCSS or DCS is enabled on your radio, only signals that are using the same tone or code as your radio will be heard in the speaker and the Squelch will remain closed to all other signals.

CTCSS and DCS codes do not prevent others from hearing your transmission.

14 June 2018

50158 23

Content TX6160 Instruction Manual

CTCSS/DCS tones are switched off by default.

To use CTCSS/DCS you must first enable a suitable CTCSS/DCS code using the Menu (see Menu options for more details). Your choice of CTCSS or DCS will largely depend on which is currently being used by other radios in your group. If neither system is currently in use, you can make your own choice. There is no difference in performance between the two systems. Once a CTCSS or DCS code has been enabled, the display will show (for CTCSS) or (for DCS). You can now make selected channels ‘quiet’ by enabling silent mode on those channels.

To activate or deactivate Silent mode on a channel:

1. Select the required channel.

2. Press and hold the SQL key. The selected CTCSS or DCS code will be displayed on that channel.

Channels that have Silent mode enabled will now remain quiet unless a signal containing your chosen code is received.

Silent mode cannot be activated unless a CTCSS or DCS code has been selected via the Menu key (See Menu options for more details). If CTCSS/DCS tones are set to ‘Off’, any attempt to activate the Silent mode will be ignored. When communicating with other radios using CTCSS or DCS, all radios must be switched to the same channel and have the same CTCS or DCS code selected. To receive signals from radios that are not using CTCSS or DCS, you will need to disable

Silent mode on that channel.
