subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device does not cause
harmful interference, and (2) this radio must accept any interference
that may cause undesired operation.
To maintain compliance with FCC’s RF exposure guidelines, for

IMPORTANT NOTICE, FCC LICENSE REQUIRED FOR GMRS OPERATION
(Only Applicable for GMRS Radio Use in the United States)
The LXT600 Series operates on GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service)
frequencies which require an FCC (Federal Communications Commission)
license. You must be licensed prior to operating on channels 1 - 7 or 15 - 22,
which comprise the GMRS channels of the LXT600 Series. Serious penalties
could result from unlicensed use of GMRS channels, in violation of FCC rules, as
stipulated in the Communications Acts Sections 501 and 502 (amended).
You will be issued a call sign by the FCC which should be used for station
identification when operating the radio on GMRS channels. You should also
cooperate by engaging in permissible transmissions only, avoiding channel
interference with other GMRS users, and being prudent with the length of your
transmission time.
To obtain a license or ask questions about the license application, contact the
FCC at 1-888-CALL FCC or go to the FCC's website:
http://www
.fcc.gov and request form 605.
Exposure To Radio Frequency Energy
Your Midland radio is designed to comply with the following national and
international standards and guidelines regarding exposure of human beings to
radio frequency electromagnetic energy:
- United States Federal Communications Commission, Code of Federal
Regulations: 47 CFR part 2 sub-part J
- American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/Institute of Electrical &
Electronic Engineers (IEEE) C95. 1-1992
- Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) C95. 1-1999 Edition
- National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) of the
United States, Report 86, 1986
- International Commission on Non-lonizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP)
1998
To control your exposure and ensure compliance with the general population or
uncontrolled environment exposure limits, transmit no more than 50% of the
time. The radio generates measurable RF energy exposure only when
transmitting.
IMPORTANT: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly
approved by MIDLAND RADIO CORP. could void your right to operate
this unit. Your radio is set up to transmit a regulated signal on an
assigned frequency. It is against the law to alter or adjust the settings
inside the COMMUNICATOR to exceed those limitations. Any adjustment
to your radio must be made by qualified technicians.

Note: Features & Specifications are subject to change without
notice. MIDLAND is not responsible for unintentional errors or
omissions on its packaging.
Your LXT600 Series is equipped for using a rechargeable NiMH
battery pack which can be recharged by inserting the AC adapter into
the radio charge jack, or with optional desktop charger (as described
below). Initial charge time is 24 hours. Charge time is about 12 hours
thereafter. For maximum battery life, we recommend charging the
battery pack when the low battery icon comes on. Remove the radios
from the charger when the charge time expires.
To charge using a Desktop Charger:
1. Place the rechargeable battery packs in the radios.
2. Connect the AC adapter into an AC wall outlet.
3. Insert the AC adapter plug (or DC Cigarette Lighter adapter if
charging in vehicle) into the desktop charger jack.
4. Place the units into the desktop charger slot and note that the LED
indicator with RED color will light up, indicating charging function.
In order to ensure that the battery pack is fully charged, it is recommended that the battery pack be charged for at least 12hours with the radio turned OFF.
1. Only use our NiMH battery pack and AC adapter.
2. Do not attempt to charge alkaline batteries or any batteries
or battery packs other than the one indicated in the
manual. This may cause leakage and damage to the radio.
3. For long term storage of the radio, turn the radio OFF and
remove the batteries from the radio.
BATTERY LEVEL INDICATOR
Your LXT600 Series has a BATTERY LEVEL METER that
shows the battery power level. The greater the number of bars
visible, the stronger the battery level. When the battery level is low,
the Battery Shell icon will flash in the display indicating
your batteries should be replaced or recharged if using a recharge-
able battery pack.
