I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.
Being a user of older radios of many kinds, preferring them over more modern rigs, this manual was invaluable in the programming of my two. I now know for certain what the assorted buttons functions are, and am very grateful to have found this excellent site. Many thanks for your assistance, Tony.
5 star quality on these downloadable manuals. Easy to read and all the information is there. A must when doing a custom install or needing to service your precious old school electronics.

Checking the Battery Level
You can check the battery level in the Power Management properties dialog box in the Control Panel or double-clicking the battery or AC plug icon on the taskbar. You can also check with the battery indicator on the front side of the computer.
Press the button on the right of the battery indicator to show the battery power remaining. Refer to the table below.
Battery Indicator Status All on Three on Two on One on One blinking All off Capacity Remaining 76% -100% 51% - 75% 26% - 50% 1% - 25% Nearly 0%(Empty) 0%(Empty)
This battery indicator turns on automatically while the battery is being charged (when connected to AC power). When the battery is fully charged, the battery indicator turns off. The battery power remaining is an approximate figure. The remaining operating time expected may be different from the actual remaining time, depending on the use of the computer. If the actual remaining power in your battery is less than what the battery indicator lights suggest, you should initialize the battery pack as per the procedure on page 3-3.
