Quick answer in case you haven't been able to download a manual:

- Press the "F" function key.
- Turn the selector dial on the lower left until you see "CHG" on the  
left-hand side of the menu.
- Tap the "A" key briefly to turn on the charger function (there will  
be an arrow by it: >CHG
- Turn the radio off--this is important!  The charger only works when  
the radio is off.
- If you were successful, you'll see the TX/RX light turn orange, and  
you'll see a timer countdown on the display.

- To cancel the charge function prematurely, just go the the "CHG"  
function again on the display and tap the "A" key.

73 and happy Field Day,
