Body-Worn Operation
To maintain compliances with FCC/Health Canada RF exposure
guidelines if you wear a radio on your body when transmitting always
place the radio in a Motorola-supplied or approved clip holder, holster,
case or body harness for this product. Use of non-Motorola-approved
accessories may exceed FCC/Health Canada RF exposure guidelines.
Two-Way Radio
User’s Guide
If you do not use one of the Motorola-supplied or approved body-worn
accessories and are not using the radio held in the normal use position,
ensure the radio and its antenna are at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) from your
body when transmitting.
Approved Accessories

All batteries can cause property damage and/or bodily injury such as burns
if a conductive material—like jewelry, keys or beaded chains— touch
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.

Safety and General Information
Important Information on Safe and Efficient Operation
Read This Information Before Using Your Radio.
The information provided in this document supersedes the general safety
information in user guides published prior to December 1, 2002.
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
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).
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.
To avoid electromagnetic interference and/or compatibility conflicts, turn
off your radio in any facility where posted notices instruct you to do so.
Hospitals or health care facilities may be using equipment that is
sensitive to external RF energy.
When instructed to do so, turn off your radio when onboard an aircraft.
Any use of a radio must be in accordance with applicable regulations
per airline crew instructions.
Medical Devices – Pacemakers
The Advanced Medical Technology Association recommends that a
minimum separation of 6 inches (15 cm) be maintained between a
handheld wireless radio and a pacemaker. These recommendations are
consistent with the independent research by and recommendations of
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
People with pacemakers should:
8. An extension cord should not be used unless absolutely necessary.
Use of an improper extension cord could result in a risk of a fire
and/or electric shock. If an extension cord must be used, make sure
Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
The extension cord size is 18 AWG for lengths up to 100 feet, and
16 AWG for lengths up to 150 feet.
Turn the radio OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place.
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:
Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving
conditions so require.
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.
7. Make sure the cord is located so it will not be stepped on, tripped
over or subjected to damage or stress.
The extension cord is properly wired and in good condition.

6. Use of an attachment not recommended or sold by Motorola may
result in a risk of fire, electric shock or personal injury.
Use hands-free operation, if available.
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.
5. To reduce the risk of electric shock, unplug the charger from the
outlet before attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
Not carry the radio in the breast pocket.

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.
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 safely.
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.

FCC Licensing Information
Your Motorola radio operates on General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS)
frequencies and is subject to the Rules and Regulations of the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC). The FCC requires that all operators
using GMRS frequencies obtain a radio license before operating their
equipment. To obtain the FCC forms, please visit the FCC’s Web site at to source form 605 and 159,
which includes all the instructions you will need.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Motorola may void
the user’s authority granted by the FCC to operate this radio and should
not be made. To comply with FCC requirements, transmitter adjustments
should be made only by or under the supervision of a person certified as
technically qualified to perform transmitter maintenance and repairs in
the private land mobile and fixed services as certified by an organization
representative of the user of those services. Replacement of any
transmitter component (crystal, semiconductor, etc.) not authorized by
the FCC equipment authorization for this radio could violate FCC rules.

unwanted transmissions from other radios. This is useful in places where
there is heavy radio traffic, such as amusement parks or ski resorts.
Emergency Alert Mode
The Emergency Alert feature can be used to signal members in your
group of your need for urgent help. MR series radios will operate in an
automatic “hands-free” emergency control mode for a total of 30
seconds after activating the Emergency Alert. MR series radios in your
group will automatically advance the speaker volume to the maximum
setting and sound a warbling alert tone for 8 seconds. The alert tone is
emitted from your own radio speaker and the receiving radios in your
group. After the 8 second alert, any spoken words or incidental sounds at
your end will be transmitted to the group for 22 seconds. For the 30
second duration of Emergency Alert mode, MR series radio controls and
buttons will be locked to maximize reception of the emergency message.

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 is 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.
To start Scanning:

radio will begin to scroll through the channel and code combinations.
