Une antenne omnidirectionnelledont le gain ne dépasse pas 9dBi doit être fixéeà une distance minimale de 5 mètres (mesuréeAVERTISSEMENTdepuis le point le plus bas de l'antenne) verticalement au-dessus du pont principal et de tout le personnel qui peuts'y trouver. Il s'agit de la distance de sécurité minimale prévue poursatisfaire aux exigences de conformité en matière d'exposition auxRF. Cette distance de 5 mètres est établie en fonction de l'expositionmaximale admissible sécuritaire de 3 mètres établie par la FCC, àlaquelle on ajoute la hauteur d'un adulte (2 mètres); cette distanceconvient pour tous les navires.Dans le cas des embarcations sans structure convenable, l'antennedoit être fixée de façon à maintenir une distance minimale de 1 mètreverticalement entre cette antenne (mesurée depuis son point le plusbas) et la tête de toute personne présente; toutes les personnesprésentes doivent se tenir à l'extérieur d'un rayon d'exposition maximale admissible de 3 mètres.LE NON-RESPECT DE CES LIMITES PEUT CAUSER, POUR LESPERSONNES SITUÉES DANS LE RAYON D'EXPOSITION MAXIMALE ADMISSIBLE, UNE ABSORPTION DE RAYONNEMENT DERF SUPÉRIEURE À L'EXPOSITION MAXIMALE ADMISSIBLEFIXÉE PAR LA FCC.L'OPÉRATEUR RADIO EST RESPONSABLE D'ASSURER QUELES LIMITES D'EXPOSITION MAXIMALE ADMISSIBLE SOIENTRESPECTÉES EN TOUT TEMPS PENDANT LA TRANSMISSIONRADIO.

An omnidirectional antenna with gain notgreater than 9 dBi must be mounted a miniW ARN INGmum of 5 meters (measured from the lowestpoint of the antenna) vertically above the maindeck and all possible personnel. This is the minimum safeseparation distance estimated to meet all RF exposure compliance requirements. This 5 meter distance is based on theFCC Safe Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE) distanceof 3 meters added to the height of an adult (2 meters) and isappropriate for all vessels.For watercraft without suitable structures, the antenna mustbe mounted so as to maintain a minimum of 1 meter vertically between the antenna, (measured from the lowest pointof the antenna), to the heads of all persons AND all personsmust stay outside of the 3 meter MPE radius.Do not transmit with radio and antenna when persons arewithin the MPE radius of the antenna, unless such persons(such as driver or radio operator) are shielded from antennafield by a grounded metallic barrier. The MPE Radius is theminimum distance from the antenna axis that person shouldmaintain in order to avoid RF exposure higher than the allowable MPE level set by FCC.iiiFAILURE TO OBSERVE THESE LIMITS MAY ALLOWTHOSE WITHIN THE MPE RADIUS TO EXPERIENCE RFRADIATION ABSORPTION WHICH EXCEEDS THE FCCMAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE (MPE) LIMIT.IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE RADIO OPERATORTO ENSURE THAT THE MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE LIMITS ARE OBSERVED AT ALL TIMES DURINGRADIO TRANSMISSION. THE RADIO OPERATOR IS TOENSURE THAT NO BYSTANDERS COME WITHIN THERADIUS OF THE MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURELIMITS.Determining MPE RadiusTHE MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE (MPE) RADIUS HAS BEEN ESTIMATED TO BE A RADIUS OFABOUT 3M PER OET BULLETIN 65 OF THE FCC.THIS ESTIMATE IS MADE ASSUMING THE MAXIMUMPOWER OF THE RADIO AND ANTENNAS WITH A MAXIMUM GAIN OF 9dBi ARE USED FOR A SHIP MOUNTEDSYSTEM.OPERATING RULESD Priorities•฀฀Read฀ all฀ rules฀ and฀ regulations฀ pertaining฀ to฀ call฀ priorities,฀and keep an up-to-date copy handy.

However, even if you arenot required to have these on hand it is your responsibility tobe thoroughly acquainted with all pertinent rules and regulations.(1)฀SHIP฀STATION฀LICENSEYou may require a current radio station license before usingthe transceiver. It is unlawful to operate a ship station which isnot licensed, but required to be.If required, contact your dealer or the appropriate government agency for a Ship-Radiotelephone license application.This government-issued license states the call sign which isyour craft’s identification for radio purposes.NOTE:฀Even though the transceiver is capable of operation on VHF marine channels 3, 21, 23, 61, 64, 81, 82 and83, according to FCC regulations these simplex channelscannot be lawfully used by the general population in USAwaters.10111213141516c Panel descriptionThank you for purchasing the HM-195B/HM-195SWREMOTE-CONTROL MICROPHONE.
