Q. How do I fit the controller speaker microphone?
A. The Remote Head uses an 8 pin telephone style plug and socket:
1. Position the microphone plug so the plastic flap faces downwards, and press the plug into the socket until it ‘clicks’.
2. Gently press the rubber boot into the hole surrounding the socket so that the slot around the boot fits neatly inside the rim of the entry hole.
Q. How do I disconnect the controller speaker microphone?
A. It is recommended that the Speaker Controller Microphone be left permanently connected to the radio, but if it must be disconnected, proceed as follows:
1. Lift the rubber boot and the lip of the raised area on the front panel.
2. Ease the rubber boot out of the cable entry hole and slide it along the cable away from the front panel.
3. Identify the plug locking lever, move the lever towards the plug body. At the same time gently pull the plug from the socket.
Q. What installation options do I have?
A. The Radio is designed for 13.8 Volt DC, negative earth installations only (i.e. where the negative battery terminal connects to the chassis of the vehicle). For installation on 24-volt systems an inverter (not supplied) will need to be used.
There are two possible methods of installation:
Over voltage protection
The radio has a high voltage input detection system, to warn you if an overvoltage situation occurs. E.g..: If the power supply voltage exceeds 17volts DC, the channel display (LCD backlight) will flash in 3 different colors when the unit is turned on. In addition, when transmitting, the TX indicator will automatically select a low power output. If the overvoltage warning appears, you must switch your radio off and disconnect it from the power source, before locating the cause of the trouble. The power source must not exceed 30volts.
Radio stays ON when the ignition is switched OFF
Connect the radio’s negative (black) lead to the vehicle chassis, or directly to the batteries negative terminal. Connect the radio’s positive (red) lead via the 2 Amp fuse to the battery’s positive terminal. Alternatively, the positive lead could be connected at the fuse box at a point that has +13.8 Volts continuously available (preferably the battery side of the ignition switch) via the 2 Amp fuse.
Radio turns OFF and ON with the ignition switch
Connect the radio’s negative (black) lead to the vehicle’s chassis, or directly to the batteries negative terminal. The radio’s positive (red) lead should connect to an accessory point in the vehicle’s fuse box via the 2 Amp fuse.
Q. How do I turn the radio on?
A. Press and hold the PWR button on the microphone for 2 seconds. Inital power on channel will default to channel 12.
Q. How do I adjust volume on the radio?
A. To adjust the volume press the Volume Up or Volume Down buttons on the microphone.
Q. How do I return the radio to factory settings?
A. If the radio’s display locks up or stops functioning properly, you might need to reset your UHF radio. Caution: this procedure clears all the information you have stored in your UHF radio. Before you reset your UHF radio, try turning it off and on again. If your UHF radio is still not functioning correctly you may need to reset the UHF radio! While holding the F/DPX button, turn the UHF radio on. INITI AL will be displayed for 1 to 2 seconds, the radio will then return to its original display.
