PRECAUTIONS
R WARNING RF EXPOSURE! This device
emits Radio Frequency (RF) energy. Extreme caution should be observed when operating this device. If you have any questions regarding RF exposure and safety standards please refer to the Federal Communications Commission Office of Engineering and Technology’s report on Evaluating Compliance with FCC Guidelines for Human Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields (OET Bulletin 65). AVOID using or placing the transceiver in areas with temperatures below –10°C (+14°F) or above +50°C (+122°F). Be aware that temperatures on a vehicle’s dashboard can exceed 80°C (+176°F), resulting in permanent damage to the transceiver if left there for extended periods. AVOID placing the transceiver in excessively dusty environments or in direct sunlight. AVOID placing the transceiver against walls or putting anything on top of the transceiver. This will obstruct heat dissipation. Place unit in a secure place to avoid inadvertent use by children. 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. Make sure the transceiver power is OFF before starting the vehicle. This will avoid possible damage to the transceiver by ignition voltage spikes. During maritime mobile operation, keep the transceiver and microphone as far away as possible from the magnetic navigation compass to prevent erroneous indications. BE CAREFUL! The heatsink will become hot when operating the transceiver continuously for long periods. BE CAREFUL! If a linear amplifier is connected, set the transceiver’s RF output power to less than the linear amplifier’s maximum input level, otherwise, the linear amplifier will be damaged. The LCD display may have cosmetic imperfections that appear as small or dark spots. This is not a malfunction or defect, but a normal characteristic of LCD displays. Use Icom microphones only (supplied or optional). Other manufacturer’s microphones have different pin assignments, and connection to the IC-756PROIII may damage the transceiver. For U.S.A. only

R WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE! NEVER attach an antenna or internal antenna connector during transmission. This may result in an electrical shock or burn.

RWARNING! NEVER operate the transceiver
with a headset or other audio accessories at high volume levels. Hearing experts advise against continuous high volume operation. If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce the volume or discontinue use.

R CAUTION! NEVER change the internal settings
of the transceiver. This result in reduced transceiver performance and/or damage to the transceiver. In particular, incorrect settings for transmitter circuits, such as output power, idling current, etc., might damage the expensive final devices. The transceiver warranty does not cover any problems caused by unauthorized internal adjustment.

R NEVER apply AC to the [DC13.8V] jack on the
transceiver rear panel. This could cause a fire or ruin the transceiver.

R NEVER apply more than 16 V DC, such as a 24 V
battery, to the [DC13.8V] jack on the transceiver rear panel. This could cause a fire or ruin the transceiver.

R NEVER let metal, wire or other objects touch any
internal part or connectors on the rear panel of the transceiver. This may result in an electric shock.

R NEVER expose the transceiver to rain, snow or
any liquids.

R NEVER installing the transceiver in a place without adequate ventilation. Heat dissipation may be affected, and the transceiver may be damaged.

R NEVER operate or touch the transceiver with wet
hands. This may result in an electric shock or damage to the transceiver.

CAUTION: Changes or modifications to this device,
not expressly approved by Icom Inc., could void your authority to operate this device under FCC regulations.

MEMORY OPERATION

■ Memory channels
The transceiver has 101 memory channels. The memory mode is very useful for quickly changing to oftenused frequencies. MEMORY CHANNEL Regular memory channels Scan edge memory channels MEMORY CHANNEL NUMBER 1–99 P1, P2 All 101 memory channels are tuneable which means the programmed frequency can be tuned temporarily with the tuning dial, etc. in memory mode. TRANSFER TO VFO Yes Yes OVERWRITING Yes Yes

CAPABILITY One frequency and one mode in each memory channel. One frequency and one mode in each memory channel as scan edges for programmed scan.

q Push [VFO/MEMO] to select memory mode. Y Z w Push [Y]/[Z] several times to select the desired memory channel.
Y Z • Push and hold [Y]/[Z] for continuous selection. • [UP] and [DN] on the microphone can also be used.

• Using the keypad
q Push [VFO/MEMO] to select memory mode. w Push [(F-INP)ENT]. e Push the desired memory channel number using the keypad.

■ Memory channel screen
The memory channel screen simultaneously shows 7 memory channels and their programmed contents. 13 memory channels can be displayed in the wide memory channel screen. You can select a desired memory channel from the memory channel screen.

• Setting a memory channel as a select memory
Select memory channels are used for select memory scan. Select memory scan repeatedly scans the select memory channels only. This is useful to speed up the memory scan interval. Of course, select memory channels are also scanned during normal memory scan. q Select the memory channel screen as described at left. w Rotate the tuning dial while pushing [(F-1)ROLL] or [(F-2)SET] to select the desired memory channel.
Y Z • [Y] and [Z] can also be used.

Analysis of such MF installations is best considered in association with published guidance notes such as the FCC OET Bulletin 65 Edition 97-01 and its annexes relative to amateur transmitter installations. Be sure to check that you have the correct version of this radio or the correct programming of this radio.8 m.5 m 10. • Typical amateur radio installation Exposure distance assumes that the predominant radiation pattern is forwards and that radiation vertically downwards is at unity gain (sidelobe suppression is equal to main lobe gain). high intensity magnetic fields. AM etc. have a lower ‘average’ output power and the assessed risk is even lower.arrl. The figures assume the worst case emission of constant carrier. Versions of the IC-756PROIII which display the “CE” symbol on the serial number seal. Exposed persons are assumed to be beneath the antenna array and have a typical height to 1. As different exposure limits have been recommended for different frequencies.19 ABOUT CE INSTALLATION NOTES For amateur base station installations it is recommended that the forwards clearance in front of the antenna array is calculated relative to the EIRP (Effective Isotropic Radiated Power). This warning symbol indicates that this equipment operates in non-harmonised frequency bands and/or may be subject to licensing conditions in the country of use. Some radio licenses will require that a timer circuit automatically cuts the transmitter after 1–2 minutes etc. Similarly. to comply with national licensing requirement. For the bands 10 MHz and higher the following power density limits have been recommended: 10–50 MHz 2 W/sq m EIRP clearance heights by frequency band 1 Watts 2.1 m 10 Watts 2. the antennae may be physically short in terms of electrical length and that the installation will require some antenna matching device which can create local.000 Watts 65 m In all cases any possible risk depends on the transmitter being activated for long periods. a relative table shows a guideline for installation considerations.

The clearance height below the antenna array can be determined in most cases from the RF power at the antenna input terminals. comply with the essential requirements of the European Radio and Telecommunication Terminal Directive 1999/5/EC. 117 . The EC recommended limits are almost identical to the FCC specified ‘uncontrolled’ limits and tables exist that show pre-calculated safe distances for different antenna types for different frequency bands. Similarly some types of transmitter. Below 30 MHz. This is true of almost every gain antenna today. the recommended limits are specified in terms of V/m or A/m fields as they are likely to fall within the near-field region.8 m 25 Watts 3.
