****** Page 3 ****** A CAUTION SAFETY INFORMATION Your wireless hand-held portable transceiver contains a low power transmitter. When the PTT button is pushed (or the VOX mode is enabled) it sends out radio frequency (RF) signals. The device is authorized to operate at a duty factor not to exceed 50%. In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) adopted RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for hand-held wireless devices. Important: To maintain compliance with the FCC’ s RF exposure guidelines hold the transmitter at least 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) from your face and speak in a normal voice, with the antenna pointed up and away. If you wear the handset on your body while using the headset accessory, use only the Audiovox supplied carry clip for this product and ensure that the antenna is at least 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) from your body when transmitting. Use only the supplied antenna. Do not use your transceiver with a damaged antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or attachments could damage the transmitter and may violate FCC regulations. Performance: Your transceiver will only achieve its maximum operating range when communicating with other transceivers across open and flat areas or between elevated points. Normally occurring environmental factors such as buildings, trees, terrain and weather, or interference from other radio or electrical equipment, may have adverse effects on the transceiver’s effective range. These are not indicative of a fault condition. Avoid placing the GMRS1262 radio transceiver for prolonged periods of time in direct sunlight or temperatures below -40F(-200C) or above 1400F (600C). Place the rubber cover on jacks when not in use. 128-7623 3 of 28
