INSTRUCTION MANUALMFHF MARINE IMPORTANT EXPLICIT DEFINITIONS READ THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL CAREFULLY The explicit definitions described below apply to this before attempting to operate the transceiver instruction manual SAVE THIS INSTRUCTION MANUALThis manual WORD DEFINITION contains important safety and operating instructions for Personal injury fire hazard or electric RWARNING shock may occur the ICM710RT MFHF MARINE TRANSCEIVER CAUTION Equipment damage may occur If disregarded inconvenience only No risk NOTE of personal injury fire or electric shock NOTE The ICM710RTGMDSS version has a highstability crystal oscillator unit This unit draws a slight current even when power to the transceiver is OFF To prevent battery exhaustion when dock ing your vessel for extended periods unplug the DC cable from the DC power receptacle PRECAUTIONS RWARNING NEVER connect the transceiver to an DO NOT use chemical agents such as benzene or al AC outlet directly This may pose a fire hazard or re cohol when cleaning as they can damage the trans sult in an electric shock ceivers surfaces RWARNING NEVER mount the transceiver over In maritime mobile operation KEEP the transceiver head The weight of the transceiver is approximately 8 and microphone as far away as possible at least 1 m kg but its apparent weight will increase several fold from the magnetic navigation compass to prevent er due to wave shocks and vibration The transceiver roneous indications must be mounted on a flat hard surface only USE an Icom microphone andor handset only sup NEVER connect a power source of more than 16 V DC plied or optional Other brands may have different pin such as a 24 volt battery This connection will ruin the assignments and may damage the transceiver transceiver AVOID using or placing the transceiver in areas with NEVER place the transceiver where normal operation temperatures below 20C 4F or above 60C of the ship or vehicle may be hindered or where it 140F could cause bodily injury AVOID connecting the transceiver to a power source Place unit in a secure place to avoid inadvertent use using reverse polarity This connection will not only by children blow fuses but may also damage the transceiver NEVER expose the transceiver to rain snow or any AVOID placing the transceiver in excessively dusty en liquids vironments or in direct sunlight There are two types of grounding systems available for AVOID placing the transceiver against walls or putting the Ground and Floating anything on top of the transceiver This will obstruct GroundNEVER install the negative ground type to a heat dissipation plusgrounding ship Such a connection might blow fuses and is not usableiiIN CASE OF EMERGENCY for maritime operationIf your vessel requires assistance contact other ves Or transmit

emergency and safety calls must bebe respected recorded in complete detail Log data activity is usu ally recorded in 24 hour time Universal Time UTC Give your call sign each time you call another vessel is frequently used or coast station If you have no call sign identify your vessel name and the name of the licensee Adjustments repairs channel frequency changes and authorized modifications affecting electrical op Give your call sign at the end of each transmission eration of the equipment must be kept in the main that lasts more than 3 min tenance log entries must be signed by the authorized licensed technician performing or super You must break and give your call sign at least once vising the work every 15 min during long shiptoshore calls Keep your unanswered calls short less than 30 sec Do not repeat a call for 2 min RADIO LICENSES 1 SHIP STATION LICENSE Unnecessary transmissions are not allowed You must have a current radio station license before using the transceiver It is unlawful to operate a ship station which is not licensed PRIORITIES Read all rules and regulations pertaining to priorities Inquire through your dealer or the appropriate govern and keep an uptodate copy handy Safety and dis ment agency for a license appli tress calls take priority over all others cation This license states the call sign which is your crafts identification for radio pur False or fraudulent distress calls are prohibited and poses punishable by law 2 OPERATORS LICENSE A Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit is the li PRIVACY cense most often held by small vessel radio operators Information overheard but not intended for you can when a radio is not required for safety purposes not be lawfully used in any way The Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit must Indecent or profane language is prohibited be posted or be kept with the operator Only a licensed radio operator may operate a transceiver However nonlicensed individuals may talk over a transceiver
