spectrum to provide communications between two or more users over a
distance.
It applies radio waves or radio frequency (RF) energy to transmit and receive voice
calls or data. RF energy is one form of electromagnetic energy. Other forms
Include, but are not limited to, sunlight and x-rays. RF energy, however, should not
be confused with these other forms of electromagnetic energy, which when used
improperly, can cause biological damage. Very high levels of x-rays, for example,
can damage tissues and genetic material.
Experts in science, engineering, medicine, health, and industry work with
organizations to develop standards for safe exposure to RF energy. These
standards provide recommended levels of RF exposure for both workers and the
general public. These recommended RF exposure levels include substantial
margins of protection.
All UNICATION U3 two-way radios are designed, manufactured, and tested to
ensure they meet government-established RF exposure levels. Additionally,
manufacturers also recommend specific operating instructions to users of
two-way radios. These instructions are essential because they inform users about
RF energy exposure and provide simple procedures on how to control it.
Please refer to the following websites for more information on what RF energy
exposure is and how to control your exposure to assure compliance with
established RF exposure limits:
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/rf-fags.html
Federal Communication Commission (FCC) Regulations
The FCC rules require manufacturers to comply with the FCC RF energy exposure
limits for portable two-way radios before they can be marketed in the U.S. When
two-way radios are used as a consequence of employment, the FCC requires
users to be fully aware of and able to control their exposure to meet occupational
requirements. Exposure awareness can be facilitated by the use of a product label
directing users to specific user awareness information. Your UNICATION U3
two-way radio has a RF Exposure Product Label. In addition, your UNICATION U3
user manual and separate safety booklet includes information and operating
Instructions required to control your RF exposure and to satisfy compliance
requirements.

Part F : WARRANTY AND SAFETY INFORMATION
Compliance with RF Exposure Standards
UNICATION' s U3 two-way radio is designed and tested to comply with a
number of national and International standards and guidelines (listed below) for
human exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic energy. This radio complies
with the IEEE (FCC) and ICNIRP exposure limits for occupational/controlled RF
exposure environments at operating duty factors of up to 50% talk-50% listen and
is authorized by the FCC for occupational use only. In terms of measuring RF
energy for compliance with these exposure guidelines, your radio generates
measurable RF energy only while it is transmitting (during talking), not when it is
receiving (listening) or in standby mode.
The approved batteries, supplied with this radio, are rated for a 5-5-90 duty
factor (5% talk - 5% listen - 90% standby) even though this radio complies with
FCC occupational exposure limits and may operate at duty factors of up to 50%
talk.
UNICATION P25 two-way radio complies with the following RF energy exposure
standards and guidelines:
* United States Federal Communications Commission, Code of Federal Regulations;
47CFR part 2 sub-part)
« American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Institute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineers (IEEE) C95. 1-1992
* Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) C95.1-1999 Edition
< International Commission on Non-lonizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) 1998
* Ministry of Health (Canada) Safety Code 6. Limits of Human Exposure to
Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields in the Frequency Range from 3 kHz to
300 GHz, 1999
* Australian Communications Authority Radio communications (Electromagnetic
Radiation — Human Exposure) Standard, 2003
* ANATEL ANNEX to Resolution No. 303 of July 2, 2002 "Regulation of limitation of
exposure to electrical, magnetic and electromagnetic fields in the radio frequency
range between 9 KHz and 300 GHz" and "Attachment to resolution # 303 from July
2, 2002"
RF Exposure Compliance and Control Guidelines and Operating Instructions
To control your exposure and ensure compliance with the occupational/controlled
environment exposure limits, always adhere to the following procedures.
59
Part F : WARRANTY AND SAFETY INFORMATION
Guidelines
* Do not remove the RF Exposure Label from the device.
* User awareness instructions should accompany device when transferred to other
LISErs.
* Do not use this device if the operational requirements described herein are not
met.
Operating Instructions
Transmit no more than the rated duty factor of 50% of the time. To transmit (talk),
push the Push-To-Talk (PTT) button. To receive calls, release the PTT button.
Transmitting 50% of the time, or less, is important because this radio generates
measurable RF energy exposure only when transmitting (in terms of measuring for
standards compliance).
Hold the radio in a vertical position in front of the face with the microphone (and
other parts of the radio including the antenna) at least one inch (2.5 centimeters)
away from the nose or lips. Antenna should be kept away from the eye. Keeping
the radio at a proper distance is important since RF exposures decrease with
Increasing distance from the antenna.
When worn on the body, always place the radio in the UNICATION P25-approved
belt clip for this product. Using approved body worn accessories is important
because the use of non-UNICATION P25-approved accessories may cause
exposure levels, which exceed the FCC occupational/controlled environment RF
exposure limits.
If you are not using a body-worn accessory and are not using the radio in the
intended-use position in front of the face (one inch away), ensure the antenna and
the radio are kept at least 0.75 inches (1.9 centimeters) from the body when
transmitting. Keeping the radio at a proper distance is important because RF
exposures decrease with increasing distance from the antenna.
Approved Accessories
Use only UNICATION U3 -approved supplied or replacement antennas, batteries,
and accessories. The use of Non-UNICATION P25 approved antennas, batteries,
and accessories may exceed the FCC (IEEE) and ICNIRP RF exposure guidelines.
Here is a list of UNICATION U3 -approved accessories: Belt Clip, External Speaker
Mic. with wired earpiece, clone cable, USB cable, the 2400mAHT Lithium Polymer
battery, and the cradle charger.

the air bag deployment area and when the air bag inflates, the radio may be
propelled with great force and cause serious injury to occupants of the vehicle.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
(Explosive atmospheres refer to hazard classified locations that may contain
nazardous gas, vapors, or dusts.) Switch off your radio prior to entering any area
with a potentially explosive atmosphere unless it is a portable radio type
especially qualified for use in such areas as Intrinsically Safe (for example, Factory
Mutual, CSA, UL, or CENELEC).
Do not remove, install, or charge batteries in such areas. Sparks in a potentially
explosive atmosphere can cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or
even death.
The areas with potentially explosive atmospheres referred to the above include
fueling areas such as below decks on boats, fuel or chemical transfer or storage
facilities, and areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain,
dust or metal powders. Areas with potentially explosive atmospheres are often,
but not always, posted.
Blasting Caps and Blasting Areas
To avoid possible interference with blasting operations, turn off your radio when
you are near electrical blasting caps, in a blasting area, or in areas posted: "Turn
off two-way radio." Obey all signs and instructions.

LLL CAUTION :
Antennas
* Do not use any portable radio that has a damaged antenna. If a damaged
antenna comes into contact with your skin, it might cause a minor burn.
* Do not hold onto the antenna when the radio is powered on. Always keep the
antenna at least 0.75 inches (1.9 cm) away from the body and 1 inch (2.54 cm)
from the face when transmitting to ensure FCC RF exposure compliance
requirements are not exceeded.
Batteries
All batteries can cause property damage and/or bodily injury, such as burns, if a
conductive material such as jewelry, keys, or beaded chains touches exposed
terminals. The conductive material may complete an electrical circuit (short
circuit) and become quite hot. Exercise care in handling any charged battery,
particularly when placing it inside a pocket, purse, or other container with metal
objects.
Intrinsically Safe Radio Information
The Intrinsically safe approval unit refers to a product that has been approved as
intrinsically safe by an approval agency (for example FM Approvals, CSA, UL, or
Cenelec) and certifies that a particular product meets the Agency's applicable
intrinsic safety standards for specific types of hazardous classified locations. A
portable radio that has been approved for intrinsic safety will have an approval
label attached to the radio to identify the unit as being approved for specified
hazardous atmospheres. This label specifies the hazardous Class/Division/Group
along with the part number of the battery that must be used. The Intrinsically
Safe Approval Label will be located on the portable radio unit.
