Quick Links. See also: Technical Supplement. Table of Contents. Page 5: Introduction We recommend that you read this manual in its entirety prior to installing the FTR, so that you fully understand the capabilities of your new transceiver. Specifications guaranteed only within Amateur band.

Frequency ranges will vary according to transceiver version; check with your dealer. Consult your Vertex Standard dealer for details regarding these and any newly- available options. Connection of any non-Vertex Standard-approved accessory, should it cause damage, may void the Limited Warranty on this apparatus.

Page 8: Installation Do not install the transceiver on top of another heat-generating device such as a power supply or amplifier , and do not place equipment, books, or papers on top of the FTR. Avoid heating vents and window locations that could expose the transceiver to excessive direct sunlight, especially in hot climates. These safety tips apply to any device installed in a well-designed amateur radio station.

The antenna or a 50 Ohm dummy load should be connected whenever the transceiver is turned on, to avoid damage that could otherwise result if trans- mission occurs accidentally without an antenna. Mount the transceiver where the display, controls, and microphone are easily accessible, using the supplied MMB mounting bracket.

The transceiver may be installed in almost any location, but should not be positioned near a heating vent nor anywhere where it might interfere with driving either visually or me- chanically.

These may be changed by the user, if you wish to assign quick access to another function. Page Dcs Code Inversion 3. When you have made your selection, press and hold the [ MHz SET ] key for one sec- ond to save the new setting and exit to normal operation.
