Pay attention to the volume level when turning the squelch off. • Do not place the microphone cable around your neck while near machinery that may catch the cable. • Do not place the transceiver on unstable surfaces. • Ensure that the end of the antenna does not touch your eyes. • When the transceiver is used for transmission for many hours, the radiator and chassis will become hot. Do not touch these locations when replacing the battery pack. • Always switch the transceiver power off before installing optional accessories. • The charger is the device that disconnects the unit from the AC mains line. The AC plug should be readily accessible. iii Turn the transceiver power off in the following locations: • Near explosives or blasting sites. • In aircrafts. (Any use of the transceiver must follow the instructions and regulations provided by the airline crew.) • Where restrictions or warnings are posted regarding the use of radio devices, including but not limited to medical facilities. • Near persons wearing pacemakers. Turn the transceiver power off in the following locations, unless the model is specifically qualified for such use (Intrinsically Safe such as approved by Factory Mutual, CSA): • In explosive atmospheres (inflammable gas, dust particles, metallic powders, grain powders, etc.). • While taking on fuel or while parked at gasoline service stations. • The orange seal on the reverse side of the transceiver is important with respect to the waterproof efficiency of the transceiver. Do not place stickers or other materials on or around the seal shown in the figure, or on the reverse side of the battery pack. Doing so will impair the waterproof efficiency of the transceiver and may cause it to break down. Additionally, in order to prevent damage to the seal, do not allow it to come in contact with foreign materials. iv • Do not disassemble or modify the transceiver for any reason. • Do not place the transceiver on or near airbag equipment while the vehicle is running. When the airbag inflates, the transceiver may be ejected and strike the driver or passengers. • Do not transmit while touching the antenna terminal or if any metallic parts are exposed from the antenna covering. Transmitting at such a time may result in a high-frequency burn. • If an abnormal odor or smoke is detected coming from the transceiver, switch the transceiver power off immediately, remove the battery pack from the transceiver, and contact your KENWOOD dealer. • Use of the transceiver while you are driving may be against traffic laws. Please check and observe the vehicle regulations in your area. • Do not expose the transceiver to extremely hot or cold conditions. • Do not carry the battery pack (or battery case) with metal objects, as they may short the battery terminals. • Danger of explosion if the battery is incorrectly replaced; replace only with the same type. v INFORMATION CONCERNING THE BATTERY PACK The battery pack includes flammable objects such as organic solvent. Mishandling may cause the battery to rupture producing flames or extreme heat, deteriorate, or cause other forms of damage to the battery. Please observe the following prohibitive matters. • Do not disassemble or reconstruct battery! The battery pack has a safety function and protection circuit to avoid danger. If they suffer serious damage, the battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. • Do not short-circuit the battery! Do not join the + and – terminals using any form of metal (such as a paper clip or wire). Do not carry or store the battery pack in containers holding metal objects (such as wires, chain necklace or hairpins). If the battery pack is short-circuited, excessive current will flow and the battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. It will also cause metal objects to heat up. • Do not incinerate or apply heat to the battery! If the insulator is melted, the gas release vent or safety function is damaged, or the electrolyte is ignited, the battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. • Do not leave the battery near fires, stoves, or other heat generators (areas reaching over 80°C/ 176°F)! If the polymer separator is melted due to high temperature, an internal short-circuit may occur in the individual cells and the battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. • Avoid immersing the battery in water or getting it wet by other means! If the battery becomes wet, wipe it off with a dry towel before use. If the battery’s protection circuit is damaged, the battery may charge at extreme current (or voltage) and an abnormal chemical reaction may occur. The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. vi • Do not charge the battery near fires or under direct sunlight! If the battery’s protection circuit is damaged, the battery may charge at extreme current (or voltage) and an abnormal chemical reaction may occur. The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. • Use only the specified charger and observe charging requirements! If the battery is charged in unspecified conditions (under high temperature over the regulated value, excessive high voltage or current over regulated value, or with a remodelled charger), it may overcharge or an abnormal chemical reaction may occur. The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. • Do not pierce the battery with any object, strike it with an instrument, or step on it! This may break or deform the battery, causing a short-circuit. The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. • Do not jar or throw the battery! An impact may cause the battery to leak, generate heat or smoke, rupture, and/or burst into flame. If the battery’s protection circuit is damaged, the battery may charge at an abnormal current (or voltage), and an abnormal chemical reaction may occur. • Do not use the battery pack if it is damaged in any way! The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. • Do not solder directly onto the battery! If the insulator is melted or the gas release vent or safety function is damaged, the battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. • Do not reverse the battery polarity (and terminals)! When charging a reversed battery, an abnormal chemical reaction may occur. In some cases, an unexpected large amount of current may flow upon discharging. The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. vii • Do not reverse-charge or reverse-connect the battery! The battery pack has positive and negative poles. If the battery pack does not smoothly connect with a charger or operating equipment, do not force it; check the polarity of the battery. If the battery pack is reverse-connected to the charger, it will be reverse-charged and an abnormal chemical reaction may occur. The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. • Do not touch a ruptured and leaking battery! If the electrolyte liquid from the battery gets into your eyes, wash your eyes out with fresh water as soon as possible, without rubbing your eyes. Go to the hospital immediately. If left untreated, it may cause eye-problems. • Do not charge the battery for longer than the specified time! If the battery pack has not finished charging even after the regulated time has passed, stop it. The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. • Do not place the battery pack into a microwave or high pressure container! The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. • Keep ruptured and leaking battery packs away from fire! If the battery pack is leaking (or the battery emits a bad odor), immediately remove it from flammable areas. Electrolyte leaking from battery can easily catch on fire and may cause the battery to generate smoke or burst into flame. • Do not use an abnormal battery! If the battery pack emits a bad odor, appears to have different coloring, is deformed, or seems abnormal for any other reason, remove it from the charger or operating equipment and do not use it. The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. viii CONTENTS UNPACKING AND CHECKING EQUIPMENT ..............................1 SUPPLIED ACCESSORIES ...............................................................1 PREPARATION ............................................................................2 INSTALLING/ REMOVING THE (OPTIONAL) BATTERY PACK ....................2 INSTALLING THE (OPTIONAL) ANTENNA ............................................2 INSTALLING THE BELT CLIP ............................................................3 INSTALLING THE CAP OVER THE UNIVERSAL CONNECTOR ...................3 INSTALLING THE (OPTIONAL) SPEAKER/ MICROPHONE OR HEADSET ......3 GETTING ACQUAINTED .............................................................4 DISPLAY .....................................................................................6 PROGRAMMABLE FUNCTIONS ..................................................7 BASIC OPERATIONS ...................................................................9 SWITCHING POWER ON/ OFF ......................................................9 ADJUSTING THE VOLUME ...............................................................9 SELECTING A ZONE AND CHANNEL/GROUP ID ................................10 TRANSMITTING...........................................................................10 RECEIVING................................................................................11 MENU MODE ..............................................................................12 MENU ACCESS ..........................................................................12 MENU CONFIGURATION ...............................................................12 CHARACTER ENTRY ...................................................................14 SCAN ...........................................................................................15 TEMPORARY CHANNEL LOCKOUT ..................................................15 PRIORITY SCAN .........................................................................15 SCAN REVERT ..........................................................................16 SCAN DELETE/ADD ....................................................................16 PRIORITY-CHANNEL SELECT ........................................................16 FleetSync: ALPHANUMERIC 2-WAY PAGING FUNCTION ......17 SELCALL (SELECTIVE CALLING) ....................................................17 STATUS MESSAGE .....................................................................18 SHORT/LONG MESSAGES ............................................................19 GPS REPORT ..........................................................................20 ix ADVANCED OPERATIONS ........................................................21 DTMF (DUAL TONE MULTI FREQUENCY) CALLS ............................21 TRUNKING CALLS (ANALOG) ........................................................22 EMERGENCY CALLS ...................................................................22 SCRAMBLER ..............................................................................23 SIGNALING ................................................................................23 VOICE OPERATED TRANSMISSION (VOX) ......................................24 BACKGROUND OPERATIONS ..................................................26 CLOCK .....................................................................................26 VIBRATOR.................................................................................26 TIME-OUT TIMER (TOT) .............................................................26 BATTERY SAVER........................................................................27 KEY LOCK ................................................................................27 LOW BATTERY WARNING ............................................................27 SIGNAL STRENGTH INDICATOR .....................................................27 COMPANDER .............................................................................28 BUSY CHANNEL LOCKOUT (BCL) .................................................28 CONTROL CHANNEL HUNT...........................................................28 PTT ID ...................................................................................28 VGS-1 OPTIONAL VOICE GUIDE & STORAGE UNIT ...............29 VOICE RECORDER .....................................................................29 VOICE GUIDE ............................................................................30 x UNPACKING AND CHECKING EQUIPMENT Note: These unpacking instructions are for use by your KENWOOD dealer, an authorized KENWOOD service facility, or the factory.

While scanning, the transceiver checks for a signal on each channel and only stops if a signal is present. To begin scanning, press the key programmed as Scan. • The icon appears on the display. • When a signal is detected on a channel, Scan pauses at that channel. The transceiver will remain on the busy channel until the signal is no longer present, at which time Scan resumes. To stop scanning, press the Scan key again. Note: To use Scan, there must be at least 2 channels in the scan sequence. TEMPORARY CHANNEL LOCKOUT During scan, you can temporarily remove specific channels from the scanning sequence by selecting them and pressing the key programmed as Scan Delete/Add. • The channel is no longer scanned. However, when scanning is ended and restarted, the channels are reset and deleted channels will again be in the scanning sequence. PRIORITY SCAN Note: To use Priority Scan, a Priority channel must be programmed. When using a single Priority channel, the transceiver will automatically change to the Priority channel when a call is received on that channel, even if a call is being received on a normal channel. When using dual Priority channels, Priority channel 1 is given precedence over Priority channel 2. So, if a call is received on Priority channel 1 while a call is already on Priority channel 2, the transceiver will change to Priority channel 1. 15 SCAN REVERT The Scan Revert channel is the channel selected when you press the PTT switch to transmit during scan. Your dealer can program one of the following types of Scan Revert channels: • Selected: The last channel selected before scan. • Selected + Talkback: Same as “Selected”, plus you can respond to calls on the channel at which scan is paused. • Priority 1/ Priority 2: The Priority channel (either Priority 1 or Priority 2) . • Priority 1 + Talkback/ Priority2 + Talkback: Same as “Priority 1/ Priority 2”, plus you can respond to calls on the channel at which scan is paused. • Last Called + Selected: The last channel on which you receive a call. SCAN DELETE/ADD You can add and remove zones and/or channels/group IDs to and from your scan list. 1 Select your desired zone and/or channel/group ID. 2 Press the key programmed as Zone Delete/Add (to add/remove zones) or Scan Delete/Add (to add/remove channels/group IDs). • You can also press and hold the key programmed as Scan Delete/Add to add/remove zones.
