Federal Communication Commission (FCC) Regulations
The FCC rules require manufacturers to comply with the FCC RF energy exposure limits for mobile
2-way radios before they can be marketed in the U.S. When 2-way radios are used as a
consequence of employment, the FCC requires users to be fully aware of and able to control their
exposure to meet occupational requirements. Exposure awareness can be facilitated by the use of a
label directing users to specific user awareness information. Your Motorola 2-way radio has a RF
exposure product label. Also, your Motorola user manual, or separate safety booklet, includes
information and operating instructions required to control your RF exposure and to satisfy
Compliance with RF Exposure Standard
Your Motorola two-way radio is designed and tested to comply with a number of national and
international standards and guidelines (listed below) regarding human exposure to radio frequency
electromagnetic energy. This radio complies with the IEEE and ICNIRP exposure limits for
occupational/controlled RF exposure environment at duty factors of up to 50% talk–50% listen and
is authorized by the FCC for occupational use. In terms of measuring RF energy for compliance with
the FCC exposure guidelines, your radio antenna radiates measurable RF energy only while it is
transmitting (during talking), not when it is receiving (listening) or in standby mode.
Your Motorola two-way radio complies with the following RF energy exposure standards and

RF Exposure Compliance and Control Guidelines and Operating Instructions
To control exposure to yourself and others and to ensure compliance with the RF exposure limits,
always adhere to the following procedures.
User awareness instructions should accompany device when transferred to other users.
Do not use this device if the operational requirements described herein are not met.
Transmit no more than the rated duty factor of 50% of the time. To transmit (talk), push the
Push-To-Talk (PTT) button. To receive calls, release the PTT button. Transmitting 50% of the
time, or less, is important because this radio generates measurable RF energy exposure only
when transmitting (in terms of measuring for standards compliance).
Transmit only when people outside the vehicle are at least the recommended minimum
laterial distance away, as shown in Table 1, from the body of a vehicle with a properly
installed antenna. This separation distance will ensure that there is sufficient distance from a
