DUAL BAND 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.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS carefully and completely before using the transceiver.
RWARNING! NEVER hold the transceiver so that the
antenna is very close to, or touching exposed parts of the body, especially the face or eyes, while transmitting. The transceiver will perform best if the microphone is 5 to 10 cm (2 to 4 in) away from the lips and the transceiver is vertical.
SAVE THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL — This
instruction manual contains important operating instructions for the IC-W32A and IC-W32E.
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
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 level or discontinue use.
NEVER connect the transceiver to an AC outlet or to a power source of more than 16 V DC. Such a connection will damage the transceiver. NEVER
connect the transceiver to a power source that is DC fused at more than 5 A. Accidental reverse connection will be protected by this fuse, higher fuse values will not give any protection against such accidents and the transceiver will be ruined.
The IC-W32E complies with the essential requirements of the 89/336/EEC directive for Electromagnetic Compatibility. This compliance is based on conformity with the ETSI speciﬁcation prETS300 684 (EMC product standard for Commercially Available Amateur Radio Equipment).
NEVER attempt to charge alkaline or dry cell batteries. Beware that external DC power connections will charge batteries inside the battery case. This will damage not only the battery case but also the transceiver.
DO NOT push the PTT when not actually desiring to transmit. Accessories included with the transceiver: Qty. q Antenna ......................................................................... 1 w Handstrap ...................................................................... 1 e Battery pack (BP-173 or BP-180) or battery case (BP-170) attached to the transceiver ........ 1 r Belt clip .......................................................................... 1 t Wall charger* ................................................................. 1
* Not supplied for some versions.
DO NOT allow children to play with any radio equipment containing a transmitter. DO NOT operate the transceiver near unshielded electrical blasting caps or in an explosive atmosphere. AVOID using or placing the transceiver in direct sunlight or
in areas with temperatures below –10°C (+14°F) or above +60°C (+140°F). The use of non-Icom battery packs/chargers may impair transceiver performance and invalidate the warranty. Even when the transceiver power is OFF, a slight current still ﬂows in the circuits. Remove the battery pack or case from the transceiver when not using it for a long time. Otherwise, the battery pack or installed dry cell batteries will become exhausted.
Antenna for U.S.A. version differs from that shown above.
