Linear radio controls provide a reliable communications link and fill an important need
in portable wireless signaling. However, there are some limitations which must be
WARNING: THIS PRODUCT IS NOT TO BE USED IN LIFE SAFETY APPLICATIONS. FCC Rules allow
unlicensed high-power transmissions at or near the operating frequency of this product which may
interfere with, or even disable, normal operation of this radio device.
BAUD RATE: 9600
STOP BITS: 1
For U.S. installations only: The radios are required to comply with FCC Rules and Regulations as Part 95
Radio Control devices. As such, they have limited transmitter power and therefore limited range.
A receiver cannot respond to more than one transmitted signal at a time and may be blocked by radio signals
that occur on or near their operating frequencies, regardless of code settings.
Changes or modifications to the device may void FCC compliance and user’s authority to operate equipment.
Infrequently used radio links should be tested regularly to protect against undetected interference or fault.

1 A general knowledge of radio and its vagaries should be gained prior to acting as a wholesale distributor or
dealer, and these facts should be communicated to the ultimate users.
