INSTRUCTION MANUAL

i207H

VHF/UHF FM TRANSCEIVER

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

IMPORTANT
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS carefully and completely before using the transceiver. SAVE THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL—This instruction manual contains important operating instructions for the IC-207H.

CAUTIONS
RWARNING! NEVER
connect the transceiver to an AC outlet. This may pose a fire hazard or result in an electric shock.

RWARNING! NEVER

operate the transceiver while driving a vehicle. Safe driving requires your full attention— anything less may result in an accident.

EXPLICIT DEFINITIONS
The explicit definitions below apply to this instruction manual. DEFINITION Personal injury, fire hazard or electric shock RWARNING may occur. CAUTION NOTE Equipment damage may occur. If disregarded, inconvenience only. No risk of personal injury, fire or electric shock. WORD

NEVER connect the transceiver to a power source of more than 16 V DC. This connection will ruin the transceiver. NEVER
connect the transceiver to a power source using reverse polarity. This connection will ruin the transceiver.

NEVER cut the DC power cable between the DC plug and fuse holder. If an incorrect connection is made after cutting, the transceiver might be damaged. NEVER
place the transceiver where normal operation of the vehicle may be hindered or where it could cause bodily injury.

NEVER

let objects impede the operation of the cooling fan on the rear panel.

DO NOT push the PTT when not actually desiring to transmit.
i

UNPACKING
DO NOT
allow children to play with any radio equipment containing a transmitter. ➀ ➁ ➂ ➃ ➉ ➆ ➄ ➅ ➇ ➈

During mobile operation, DO NOT operate the transceiver without running the vehicle’s engine. When transceiver power is ON and your vehicle’s engine is OFF, the vehicle’s battery will soon become exhausted.

BE CAREFUL! AVOID

The transceiver will become hot when operating it continuously for long periods.

using or placing the transceiver in areas with temperatures below –10°C (+14°F) or above +60°C (+140°F) or in areas subject to direct sunlight, such as the dashboard.

Accessories included with the transceiver:

Qty.

AVOID the use of chemical agents such as benzine or alcohol
when cleaning, as they can damage the transceiver surfaces.

USE Icom microphones only (supplied or optional). Other manufacturer’s microphones have different pin assignments and may damage the transceiver if attached.
Note that in this manual, sections beginning with a microphone icon (as at left) designate operation via the HM-98 microphone.

14 OTHER FUNCTIONS I Packet operation D Data speed USING INITIAL SET MODE For packet operation the transceiver can be set to one of two data speeds: 1200 bps (default) or 9600 bps. ➀ Push [PWR] to turn power OFF. ➁ While pushing [SET]. NOTE: For 1200 bps operation— • Disconnect the microphone plug from the microphone connector during data transmission. ➂ Push [SET] one or more times until “bPS” appears. data transmission is interrupted and voice signals have priority. • Pushing [MONI] reverses the order of selection. The display shows the data speed set to 9600 bps. For 9600 bps operation— • When the transceiver is set for 9600 bps data transmission in INTIAL SET MODE. the microphone signal is automatically cut. it is not necessary to disconnect the microphone plug from the connector in this case. 63 . The display shows the data speed set to 1200 bps. turn power ON to enter initial set mode. Therefore. • When pushing [PTT] during data transmission. ➃ Rotate the tuning dial to select the desired data speed. otherwise the data signal and voice signal are simultaneously transmitted. ➄ Push [PWR] momentarily to exit initial set mode.
