INSTALLATION OF PRIMARY BATTERY AND BATTERY BOX. To assemble a manpack radio, you must first check and
install the battery.
THE LITHIUM BATTERY USED WITH YOUR MANPACK RADIO IS HAZARDOUS IF MISUSED OR
TAMPERED WITH BEFORE, DURING, OR AFTER DISCHARGE. STRICTLY OBSERVE THE
FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS TO PREVENT INJURY TO PERSONNEL OR DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT.
DO NOT heat, incinerate, crush, puncture, disassemble, or otherwise mutilate battery.
