  4. 4. SUPPLIED ACCESSORIES OPERATING THEORY Electromagnetic radiation which has frequencies of 20,000 Hz (20 kHz*) and above is called radio frequency (RF) q w e r energy because it is useful in radio transmissions. The IC-R5 receives RF energy from 0.150 MHz* to 1309.995 MHz and converts it into audio frequency (AF) energy which in turn ac- tuates a loudspeaker to create sound waves. AF energy is in the range of 20 to 20,000 Hz. t *kHz is an abbreviation of kilohertz or 1000 hertz, MHz is abbreviation of megahertz or 1,000,000 hertz, where hertz is a unit of frequency. OPERATING NOTES The IC-R5 may receive its own oscillated frequency, resulting in no reception or only noise reception, on some frequencies. q Antenna ………………………………………………………1 w Hand strap …………………………………………………1 The IC-R5 may receive interference from extremely strong e Belt clip ………………………………………………………1 signals on different frequencies or when using an external r Ni-Cd battery cells† …………………………………………2 high-gain antenna. t AC adapter* …………………………………………………1 *Not supplied with UK and Italy versions. † Not supplied with Italy version. iii
