KNG Mobile Manual National and International Standards NOTICE: This radio is intended for use in occupational/controlled conditions, where users have full knowledge of their exposure and can exercise control over their exposure to meet FCC limits. This radio device is NOT authorized for general population, consumer, or any other use. This 2-way radio uses electromagnetic energy in the radio frequency (RF) spectrum to provide communications between two or more users over a distance. It uses radio frequency (RF) energy or radio waves to send and receive calls. RF energy is one form of electromagnetic energy; other forms include, but are not limited to, sunlight and x-rays. RF energy, however, should not be confused with these other forms of electromagnetic energy, which when used improperly, can cause biological damage. Very high levels of x-rays, for example, can damage tissues and genetic material. Experts in science, engineering, medicine, health and industry work with organizations to develop standards for exposure to RF energy. These standards provide recommended levels of RF exposure for both workers and the general public. These recommended RF exposure levels include substantial margins of protection. All 2-way radios are designed, manufactured, and tested to ensure they meet government established RF exposure levels. In addition, manufacturers also recommend specific operating instructions to users of 2-way radios. These instructions are important because they inform users about RF energy exposure and provide simple procedures on how to control it. Please refer to the

Exposure awareness can be facilitated by the use of a product label directing users to specific user awareness information. Your BK Radio 2-way radio has an RF exposure product label. Also, your BK Radio owner’s and service manuals include information and operating instructions required to control your RF exposure and to satisfy compliance requirements. Compliance with RF Exposure Standards Your BK Radio 2-way radio is designed and tested to comply with a number of national and international standards and guidelines (listed below) for human exposure

KNG Mobile Manual to radio frequency electromagnetic energy. This radio complies with the IEEE and ICNIRP exposure limits for occupational/controlled RF exposure environment at operating duty factors of up to 50% talk-50% listen and is authorized by the FCC for occupational use only. In terms of measuring RF energy for compliance with the FCC exposure guidelines, your radio antenna radiates measurable RF energy only while it is transmitting (during talking), not when it is receiving (listening) or in Standby Mode. Your BK Radio 2-way radio complies with the following RF energy exposure standards and guidelines: United States Federal Communications Commission, Code of Federal Regulations; 47 CFR §§ 1.1307, 1.1310, 2.1091 and 2.1093 American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) C95. 1-1992 Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) C95.1-1999 Edition Industry Canada Compliance This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003. Cet appareil numerique de la classe B est conforme à la norme NMB-003 Canada.

KNG Mobile Manual RF Exposure Compliance and Control Guidelines To control exposure to yourself and others and to ensure compliance with the RF exposure limits, always adhere to the following procedures. Guidelines:

• User awareness instructions must accompany device when transferred to other users. • Do not use this device if the operational requirements described herein are not met.

Operating Instructions: Transmit no more than the rated duty factor of 50% of the time. To transmit (talk), push the Push-To-Talk (PTT) button. The red LED will illuminate when the radio is transmitting. To receive calls, release the PTT button. The red LED will extinguish when the radio stops transmitting. Transmitting 50% of the time, or less, is important because this radio generates measurable RF energy exposure only when transmitting (in terms of measuring for standards compliance). Transmit only when persons around the vehicle are at least 3 feet (90 centimeters) away from the vehicle with a properly installed antenna. This separation distance will ensure that there is sufficient distance from a properly installed (according to installation instructions) externally-mounted antenna to satisfy the RF exposure requirements in the standards listed above.

KNG Mobile Manual Code Guard/NAC Operation Conventional Channels Code Guard Transmit Whenever transmitting on an analog channel, any programmed sub-audible Code Guard is transmitted. Depending on radio programming, the Code Guard can be the default tone assigned to the channel or a tone selected from the Code Guard Picklist (see Pick List Options). Busy/TX LED The frequency must be clear prior to transmitting on a Code Guarded channel. If the LED Indicator is yellow do not transmit. Busy Channel Lockout can be programmed to disallow transmitting while a channel is busy. OK 1. Press the PTT switch. When the transmitter is on, the LED Indicator glows red and TX appears in the display. 2 Talk in a normal voice with the microphone one to two inches from your mouth. 3.

KNG Mobile Manual Code Guard Receive Analog channels programmed with a receive code guard will be heard only when the proper carrier frequency and Code Guard value is received. Analog and mixed mode receive channels will also unmute when the radio is in monitor mode. Analog Squelch Control Sub-audible signaling (CTCSS/CDCSS) is used to allow a group of radios to be selectively called in an analog system. Programming the receive code guard equal to zero allows for Carrier Squelch operation, where the radio will unmute whenever a carrier is detected regardless of the transmitted Code Guard. APCO Project 25 Digital Squelch Control Network Access Codes (NACs) provide the digital equivalent of analog sub-audible signaling (CTCSS/CDCSS) allowing a group of radios to be selectively called within a system. Users in the same area (using the same NAC) can be further divided into Talk Groups, with each group having its own Talk Group ID (TGID). Group Calls are made by designating both the users’ NAC and TGID. Each radio also has an individual P25 unit ID. A Unit-to-Unit call contains the addressee’s NAC, and uses the addressee’s P25 unit ID instead of the TGID.

Contents - 34 -

KNG Mobile Manual When operating in Digital Mode, each channel can be programmed to use either Normal squelch or Selective squelch. Normal squelch is used to mimic analog operation. Signals are only qualified with the programmed NAC. TGIDs and P25 Unit IDs are ignored. Each digital channel is programmed with a receive NAC and a transmit NAC. When an incoming signal’s NAC matches the channel’s programmed receive NAC, the radio unmutes. The default NAC is 0659 ($293 hex). The digital equivalent of carrier squelch is achieved by programming the receive NAC = $F7E (3966 decimal). The radio will unmute when a digital signal with any NAC is detected. The $F7E (3966 decimal) NAC is reserved for receivers and is not allowed as a transmit NAC. Selective squelch is used for processing Group Calls and Unit-to-Unit Calls. TGIDs are assigned on a per-channel basis. Users can be separated into Talk Groups with each group having its own TGID. Then, on channels programmed for Selective squelch, the incoming signal’s NAC and TGID must match the channels programmed receive NAC and TGID for the radio to unmute. The default TGID is 1. The TGID value 65535 ($FFFF hex) is used to effect an “All Call”. If the radio receives a signal with a matching NAC and the TGID = 65535 ($FFFF hex), it will unmute. Also, if the radio’s programmed TGID is 65535 ($FFFF hex), it will open on any signal with a matching NAC, ignoring the incoming TGID.
