HF/VHFALLMODE TRANSCEIVER
i746PRO
INSTRUCTION MANUAL
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is sub- ject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not causeharmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interferencereceived, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

FOREWORD
We understand that you have a choice of many differ-ent radios in the market place. We want to take a cou-ple of moments of your time to thank you for makingthe IC-746PRO your radio of choice, and hope youagree with Icom’s philosophy of “technology first”.Manyhours of research and development went into the de-sign of your IC-746PRO.Rather than completely redesigning all areas to createa new radio, the engineering team at Icom decided tofollow in the footsteps of the IC-746 (one of the bestvalue transceivers in the marketplace) with the new“PRO.” Focused on real world improvements compiledover the last few years from letters, phone calls, E-Mails and newsgroup postings, the engineering teamat Icom is proud to say “many of these changes werecompiled from a list of suggestions from you, the ama-teur radio operator!”

IMPORTANT
READ THIS INSTRUCTION MANUALCAREFULLY
before attempting to operate thetransceiver.
SAVE THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL.
Thismanual contains important safety and operating in-structions for the IC-746PRO.
EXPLICITDEFINITIONSPRECAUTIONS
R
WARNING RF EXPOSURE!
This device emitsRadio Frequency (RF) energy. Extreme caution should beobserved when operating this device. If you have anyquestions regarding RF exposure and safety standardsplease refer to the Federal Communications CommissionOffice of Engineering and Technology’s report on Evalu-ating Compliance with FCC Guidelines for Human RadioFrequency Electromagnetic Fields (OETBulletin 65).
R
WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE! NEVER
attach anantenna or internal antenna connector during transmis-sion. This may result in an electrical shock or burn.
R
NEVER
apply AC to the [DC13.8V] jack on the trans-ceiver rear panel. This could cause a fire or ruin the trans-ceiver.
R
NEVER
apply more than 16 V DC, such as a 24 Vbattery, to the [DC13.8V] jack on the transceiver rearpanel. This could cause a fire or ruin the transceiver.
R
NEVER
let metal, wire or other objects touch any in-ternal part or connectors on the rear panel of the trans-ceiver. This may result in an electric shock.
NEVER
expose the transceiver to rain, snow or any liquids.
AVOID
using or placing the transceiver in areas with tem-peratures below –10°C (+14°F) or above +60°C (+140°F).Be aware that temperatures on a vehicle’s dashboard canexceed 80°C (+176°F), resulting in permanent damage tothe transceiver if left there for extended periods.
AVOID
placing the transceiver in excessively dusty envi-ronments or in direct sunlight.
AVOID
placing the transceiver against walls or puttinganything on top of the transceiver. This will obstruct heatdissipation.Place unit in a secure place to avoid inadvertent use bychildren.During mobile operation,
DO NOT
operate the transceiverwithout running the vehicle’s engine. When the trans-ceiver’s power is ON and your vehicle’s engine is OFF,the vehicle’s battery will soon become exhausted.Make sure the transceiver power is OFF before startingthe vehicle. This will avoid possible damage to the trans-ceiver by ignition voltage spikes.
During maritime mobile operation, keep the transceiverand microphone as far away as possible from the magneticnavigation compass to prevent erroneous indications.
BE CAREFUL! The heatsink will become hot when oper-ating the transceiver continuously for long periods.BE CAREFUL! If a linear amplifier is connected, set thetransceiver’s RF output power to less than the linear am-plifier’s maximum input level, otherwise, the linear ampli-fier will be damaged.Use Icom microphones only (supplied or optional). Othermanufacturer’s microphones have different pin assign-ments, and connection to the IC-746PRO may damagethe transceiver.
WORDDEFINITION
R
WARNING
Personal injury, fire hazard or electricshock may occur.
CAUTION
Equipment damage may occur.
NOTE
If disregarded, inconvenience only. Norisk or personal injury, fire or electricshock.
