INSTRUCTION MANUAL VHF MARINE TRANSCEIVER iC m1 This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules Operation is subject to the condition that this device does not cause harmful interference IMPORTANT READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS carefully and completely SAVE THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL This in before using the transceiver struction manual contains important operating instructions for the ICM1 CAUTIONS RWARNING NEVER hold the transceiver so that KEEP the transceiver at least 33 ft 1 m away from the the antenna is very close to or touching exposed parts of the ships navigation compass body especially the face or eyes while transmitting The transceiver will perform best if the microphone is 2 to 4 in DO NOT use or place the transceiver in areas with temper 5 to 10 cm away from the lips and the transceiver is verti atures below 4F 20C or above 140F 60C or in cal areas subject to direct sunlight such as the dashboard MAKE SURE the flexible antenna and battery pack are se AVOID the use of chemical agents such as benzine or al curely attached to the transceiver and that the antenna and cohol when cleaning as they may damage the transceiver battery pack are dry before attachment Exposing the inside surfaces of the transceiver to water will result in serious damage to the transceiver BE CAREFUL The transceiver rear panel will become hot when operating continuously for long periods NEVER allow children to touch the transceiver After exposure to saltwater clean the transceiver thoroughly NEVER charge battery packs except in the methods de with fresh water to avoid corrosion

16 when you are not operating on another channel 2 OPERATORS LICENSE A Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit is the license3 False or fraudulent distress signals are prohibited and pun most often held by small vessel radio operators when a radio ishable by law is not required for safety purposes The Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit must be PRIVACY posted or kept with the operator Only a licensed radio opera1 Information overheard but not intended for you cannot law tor may operate a transceiver fully be used in any way However nonlicensed individuals may talk over a transceiver2 Indecent or profane language is prohibited if a licensed operator starts supervises ends the call and makes the necessary log entries Keep a copy of the current government rules and regulations RADIO
