Transmit and Receive Procedure
Your two-way radio contains a transmitter and a receiver. To control
your exposure and ensure compliance with the general population/
uncontrolled environment exposure limits, always adhere to the
following procedure:
Exposure to Radio Frequency Energy
Your Motorola 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 J.
• American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/Institute of
Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) C95. 1-1992.
• Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) C95.
1-1999 Edition.
• International Commission on Non-Ionizing 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 Radiocommunications
(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 300GHz” and
“Attachment to resolution #303 from July 2, 2002”.
To ensure optimal radio performance and make sure human
exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic energy is within the
guidelines set forth in the above standards, always adhere to the
following procedures.
Portable Radio Operation and EME Exposure
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna.
Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or attachments could
damage the radio and may violate FCC regulations.
Operational Cautions
Do not use any portable radio that has a damaged antenna. If a
damaged antenna comes into contact with your skin, a minor burn
can result.
The information provided in this document supersedes the general
safety information in user guides published prior to December 1, 2002.
• Transmit no more than 50% of the time.
• To receive calls, release the PTT button.
• To transmit (talk), press the Push to Talk (PTT) button.
Transmitting 50% of the time, or less, is important because the radio
generates measurable RF energy exposure only when transmitting
(in terms of measuring standards compliance).
Blasting Caps and 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 radios.” Obey all signs and
Data Operation
If applicable, when using any data feature of the radio with or
without an accessory cable, position the radio and its antenna at
least one inch (2.5 cm) from the body.
Electromagnetic Interference/Compatibility
Note: Nearly every electronic device is susceptible to
electromagnetic interference (EMI) if inadequately shielded,
designed or otherwise configured for electromagnetic compatibility.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is
subject to the following two conditions:
Note: The areas with potentially explosive atmospheres referred to
above include fueling areas such as below decks on boats, fuel or
chemical transfer or storage facilities, areas where the air contains
chemicals or particles (such as grain, dust or metal powders) and
any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your
vehicle engine. Areas with potentially explosive atmospheres are
often—but not always—posted.
ALWAYS keep the radio more than 6 inches (15 cm) from their
pacemaker when the radio is turned ON.
Not carry the radio in the breast pocket.
Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential
for interference.
Turn the radio OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect
that interference is taking place.
Medical Devices – Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless radios may interfere with some hearing aids.
In the event of such interference, you may want to consult your
hearing aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Medical Devices – Other
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the
manufacturer of your device to determine if it is adequately
shielded from RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in
obtaining this information.
Safety and General Use While Driving
Check the laws and regulations regarding the use of radios in the
area where you drive, and always obey them. If you do use your
radio while driving, please:
Give full attention to driving and to the road.
Use hands-free operation, if available.
Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if
driving conditions so require.
The use of a two-way radio while engaged in activities requiring
concentration may cause distraction or otherwise impair your
ability to safely participate in such activities. Always use technology
Do not place a portable radio in the area over an air bag or in the
air bag deployment area. Air bags inflate with great force. If a
portable radio is placed in the air bag deployment area and the air
bag inflates, the radio may be propelled with great force and cause
serious injury to occupants of the vehicle.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn off your radio prior to entering any area with a potentially
explosive atmosphere. Only radio types that are especially qualified
should be used in such areas as “Intrinsically Safe.” 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.
Exercise care when removing NiMH or AA batteries. Do not use
sharp or conductive tools to remove either of these batteries.

Scanning Channels
Use scan to search the 22 channels for transmissions from
unknown parties, to find someone in your group who has
accidentally changed channels, or to quickly find unused channels
for your own use.
There is a priority feature and 2 modes of scanning ( basic and
advanced ) to make your search more effective. The basic scan
mode uses the channel and code combinations for each of the 22
channels as you have set them ( or with the default code value of
1). The “Advanced Scan” mode will scan all channels for any and
all codes, detect any code in use, and use that code value
temporarily for that channel.
Priority is given to the “home channel,” that is, the channel (and
Interference Eliminator Code) your radio was set to when you start
the scan. This means the initial channel (and code setting) is scanned
more often than the other 21 channels, and your radio will respond
quickly to any activity occurring on the home channel as a priority.
