INSTRUCTION MANUAL
HF/50 MHzALLMODE TRANSCEIVER
i756PRO™
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.

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-756PROII.
EXPLICITDEFINITIONS
R
WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE! NEVER
at-tach an antenna or internal antenna connector duringtransmission. This may result in an electrical shock orburn.
R
NEVER
apply AC to the [DC13.8V] jack on thetransceiver rear panel. This could cause a fire or ruinthe transceiver.
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 anyinternal part or connectors on the rear panel of thetransceiver. This may result in an electric shock.
NEVER
expose the transceiver to rain, snow or anyliquids.
AVOID
using or placing the transceiver in areas withtemperatures below –10°C (+14°F) or above +50°C(+122°F). Be aware that temperatures on a vehicle’sdashboard can exceed 80°C (+176°F), resulting in per-manent damage to the transceiver if left there for ex-tended periods.
AVOID
placing the transceiver in excessively dusty en-vironments or in direct sunlight.
AVOID
placing the transceiver against walls or puttinganything on top of the transceiver. This will obstructheat dissipation.Place unit in a secure place to avoid inadvertent useby children.During mobile operation,
DO NOT
operate the trans-ceiver without running the vehicle’s engine. Whentransceiver power is ON and your vehicle’s engine isOFF, the vehicle’s battery will soon become ex-hausted.Make sure the transceiver power is OFF before start-ing the vehicle. This will avoid possible damage to thetransceiver by ignition voltage spikes.During maritime mobile operation, keep the transceiverand microphone as far away as possible from the mag-netic navigation compass to prevent erroneous indica-tions.BE CAREFUL! The heatsink will become hot when op-erating the transceiver continuously for long periods.BE CAREFUL! If a linear amplifier is connected, setthe transceiver’s RF output power to less than the lin-ear amplifier’s maximum input level, otherwise, the lin-ear amplifier will be damaged.Use Icom microphones only (supplied or optional).Other manufacturer’s microphones have different pinassignments, and connection to the IC-756PROII maydamage the transceiver.
PRECAUTIONS
Spurious may be received near the following frequencies.These are made in the internal circuit and does not indicate atransceiver malfunction:6.144 MHz, 8.000 MHz,12.288 MHz, 12.890 MHz (when spectrum scope is ON),18.433 MHz, 24.573 MHz
