WASHINGTON CB RADIO OWNERS MANUAL
UNIDEN CORPORATION OF AMERICA has combined superb workmanship and modern styling with the very latest state of the art circuitry to bring you the new ~ASHINGTON Citizens Band Transceiver. It has been especially designed to give you maximum performance and reliability. Your WASHINGTON is completelyfactory aligned and quality assurance tested. To obtain the maximum benefit and pleasure from your WASHINGTON, please read very carefully the contents of this manual before attempting to install or operate the transceiver.
The Citizens Band (CB) Radio Service is under the jurisdiction of the Federal Communications Commission (F .C.C.). Any adjustments or alterations which would alter theperformance of the transceiver's original F.C.C. Type Acceptance or which would change the frequency determining method are strictly prohibited. Replacement or substitution of Crystals, Transistors, ICs, Regul~tor Diodes or any other part of a unique, nature, with parts other than those recommended by us, may cause violation of the technical regulations of Part 95 of the F.C.C. Rules or violation ofType Acceptance requirements of Part 2 of the Rules.
ELIMINATION OF LICENSING The Federal Communications Commission (F .C.C.) has ruled that Citizens Band (CB) Radio Service operators no longer are required to obtain an F.C.C. license to operate their CB equipment. In doing so, the F.C.C. also decided to permit CB station operation without station identification. Elimination of individualstation licenses results in no lessening of the operating privileges or responsibilities of CB users. An operator of a CB radio station is still required to comply with the Communications Act and with the rules of CB Radio

To insure that you obtain the maximum performance from this radio, please carefully read this owner's manual.
This radio has been designed for operation in the 11 meter Citizens Radio Service. It uses a frequency synthesizing circuit with Phase Locked Loop (PLL) techniques to provide crystal controlled transmit and receive operation on all 40 channels. The PLLcircuitry assures ultraprecise frequency control. It is designed to meet the Federal Communications Commission requirements applicable to equipment operating in the Citizens Radio Service, and is not to be used for any other' purpose.
Location Prior to begining operation of the transceiver, a basic installation must be done. Installation of the transceiver itself is a rathersimple procedure. In selecting the location for the unit, two factors must be considered:
1. Access to a ~ AC, 60Hz power source for your BASE STATION installation. Be sure to connect the AC power cord to an AC power source, not to a DC power source. 2. The location must be convenient for running the antenna lead-in cable to your transceiver.
BASE STATION ANTENNA Since th'e maximumallowable power output of the transmitter is limited by the F.C.C., the antenna is the most important factor affecting transmission distance. Only a properly matched antenna system will allow maximum power transfer from the 52 Ohm transmission line to the radiating element. The recommended method of antenna tuning is to use an in-line watt-meter or VSWR bridge to adjust the antenna for minimum...
