WARNING!

Before using, be careful never to transmit without first having connected the flexible antenna (C2), or, with a CB antenna*, without having set the SWR (Standing Wave Ratio) ! Failure to do so may result in destruction of the power amplifier, which is not covered by the warranty.

*in mobile configuration when the flexible antenna (C2) has been removed and replaced by a CB antenna using the TNC/PL239 adapter (C3).

The warranty of this transceiver is valid only
in the country of purchase.

Welcome to the world of the new generation of CB radios. The new PRESIDENT range gives you access to top performance CB equipment. With the use of up-to-date technology, which guarantees unprecedented quality, your PRESIDENT RANDY FCC is a new step in personal communication and is the surest choice for the most demanding of professional CB radio users. To ensure that you make the most of all its capacities, we advise you to read carefully this manual before installing and using your PRESIDENT RANDY FCC.

MOBILE CONFIGURATION

1) ANTENNA INSTALLATION

– Remove the flexible antenna (C2) from the device.
– Replace the antenna (C2) with the antenna adapter (C3)
– Connect the CB antenna to the antenna adapter (C3).

  1. Choosing your antenna
    – For CB radios, the longer the antenna, the better its results. Your dealer will be able to help you with your choice of antenna.
  2. Mobile antenna
    – Must be fixed to the vehicle where there is a maximum of metallic surface (ground plane), away from windscreen mountings.
    – If you already have a radio-telephone antenna installed, the CB antenna should be higher than this.
    – There are two types of antenna: pre-regulated which should be used on a good ground plane (e.g. car roof or lid of the boot), and adjustable which offer a much larger range and can be used on a smaller ground plane (see § 3, ADJUSTMENT OF SWR).
    – For an antenna which must be fixed by drilling, you will need a good contact between the antenna and the ground plane. To obtain this, you should lightly scratch the surface where the screw and tightening star are to be placed.
    – Be careful not to pinch or flatten the coaxial cable (as this runs the risk of break down and/or short-circuiting).
    – Connect the antenna to the adapter (C3).
  3. Fixed antenna
    – A fixed antenna should be installed in a clear space as possible. If it is fixed to a mast, it will perhaps be necessary to stay it, according to the laws in force (you should seek professional advice). All PRESIDENT antennas and accessories are designed to give maximum efficiency to each CB radio within the range.

2) BASIC OPERATIONS TO BE CARRIED OUT BEFORE

OUTPUT RADIUS  PATTERNPresident TXUS611 RANDY FCC Handheld or Mobile CB Radio User Manual - OUTPUT RADIUSUSING YOUR SET FOR THE FIRST TIME (without transmitting and without using the «push-to-talk» switch)

  1. Check the antenna connections.
  2. Turn the set on by turning the Power knob (1) clockwise.
  3. Set the squelch OFF. See § 11 and 12 page 14.
  4. Adjust the volume to a comfortable level.
  5. Go to channel 20 by using the channel selectors 🔼 or 🔽 key (3).

3) ADJUSTMENT OF SWR (Standing wave ratio)

WARNING: This must be carried out when you use your CB radio for the first time (and whenever you re-position your antenna). The adjustment must be carried out in an obstacle-free area.

* Adjustment with external SWR-meter (e.g. TOS-1 PRESIDENT)

  1. To connect the SWR meter :
    – Connect the SWR meter between the CB radio and the antenna as close as possible to the CB (use a maximum of 15.75 inches (40 cm), type President CA-2C).
  2. To adjust the SWR meter:
    – Set the CB on channel 20.
    – Put the switch on the SWR-meter to position FWD (calibration).
    – Press the «push-to-talk» switch on the microphone to transmit.
    – Bring the index needle to 🔽 by using the calibration key.
    – Change the switch to position REF (reading of the SWR level). The reading on the Meter should be as near as possible to 1. If this is not the case, re-adjust your antenna to obtain a reading as close as possible to 1. (An SWR reading between 1 and 1.8 is acceptable).
    – It will be necessary to re-calibrate the SWR meter after each adjustment of the antenna.

WARNING: In order to avoid any losses and attenuations in cables used for connection between the radio and its accessories, PRESIDENT recommends to use a cable with a length less than 118.11 inches (3 m).

Your CB is now ready for use.

HANDHELD CONFIGURATION

1) INSTALLATION
– Screw the flexible antenna (C2) on the device.
– Check that the battery is fully charged. See § CHARGING THE RANDY FCC page 20.

TROUBLE SHOOTING

1) YOUR CB RADIO WILL NOT TRANSMIT OR YOUR TRANSMISSION IS OF POOR QUALITY

– Check that the antenna is correctly connected.
– Check that the SWR is properly adjusted (Mobile Configuration only).

2) YOUR CB RADIO WILL NOT RECEIVE OR RECEPTION IS POOR

– Check that the squelch level is properly adjusted.
– Check that the volume is set to a comfortable listening level.
– Check that the antenna is correctly connected.
– Check that the SWR is properly adjusted (Mobile Configuration only).

3) YOUR CB WILL NOT LIGHT UP

– Check the battery or power supply.
– Check the fuse (Mobile Configuration only).

HOW TO TRANSMIT OR RECEIVE A MESSAGE

Now that you have read the manual, make sure that your CB Radio is ready for use (i.e. check that your antenna is connected). Choose your channel (19, 27).

Press the «push-to-talk» switch (14) and announce your message «Attention stations, transmission testing» which will allow you to check the clearness and the power of your signal. Release the switch and wait for a reply. You should receive a reply like, «Strong and clear».

If you use a calling channel (19, 27) and you have established communication with someone, it is common practice to choose another available channel so as not to block the calling channel.
