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.

Basic Terminology 3 â Aperture
The aperture (or F-number) indicates the size of the aperture opening in the lens. The aperture displayed on the cameraâs LCD panel and in the viewfinder can range anywhere from 1.0 to 91, depending on the lens attached to the camera. The larger the F-number, the smaller the aperture. And the smaller the F-number, the larger the aperture.
