144 MHz FM TRANSCEIVER

i2100H

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.

FOREWORD
Thank you for purchasing this Icom product. The IC-2100H/-T 144 MHz FM TRANSCEIVER is designed and built with Icom’s superior technology and craftsmanship. With proper care this product should provide you with years of trouble-free operation.

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

IMPORTANT
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
pletely before using the transceiver. carefully and com-

SAVE THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL—This instruction manual contains important operating instructions for the IC-2100H/-T.

NEVER connect the transceiver to a power source using reverse polarity. This 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 may be damaged. NEVER
place the transceiver where normal operation of the vehicle may be hindered or where it could cause bodily injury.

EXPLICIT DEFINITIONS
DEFINITION Personal injury, fire hazard or electric RWARNING shock may occur. CAUTION NOTE ii Equipment damage may occur. If disregarded, inconvenience only. No risk of personal injury, fire or electric shock. WORD

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. DO NOT allow children to play with any radio equipment
containing a transmitter.

SUPPLIED ACCESSORIES
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. ➀ ➁

BE CAREFUL!

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

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).

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

USE Icom microphones only (supplied or optional). Other
manufacturer’s microphones have different pin assignments and may damage the transceiver if attached. For U.S.A. only Caution: Changes or modifications to this transceiver, not expressly approved by Icom Inc., could void your authority to operate this transceiver under FCC regulations.

s Transmitting
vCAUTION: Transmitting without an antenna will damage the transceiver.  NOTE: To prevent interference, listen on the frequency before transmitting by pushing [MONI] or [➀MONI] on the microphone.

s Selecting output power
The transceiver has 3* output power levels to suit your operating requirements. Low output powers during short-distance communications may reduce the possibility of interference to other stations and will reduce current consumption.
*The Thailand and Taiwan versions have only 2 levels.

➀ Set the operating frequency. (pgs. 15, 17)
• Select output power if desired. See section at right for details.

Push [LOW] one or more times to select the output power.
• The output power can be changed while transmitting.

➁ Push and hold [PTT] to transmit.
• “$” appears. • The S/RF indicator shows the output power selection. • The operating frequency, etc. is automatically programmed into a scratch pad memory. See p. 34 for details. • A one-touch PTT function is available. See p. 20 for details.
