below the FCC radio frequency exposure limits. Nevertheless, the device should be used in such a
manner that the potential for human contact with the antenna is minimized during normal operation of
the computer. Refer to the following section for instructions on positioning the antenna properly.
During WWAN operation in tablet mode: To avoid the possibility of exceeding the FCC radio frequency
exposure limits, human proximity to the antenna should be no less than 2.5 cm (1 inch) and the antenna
should be positioned at a 180-degree angle.
During WWAN operation in notebook mode: To avoid the possibility of exceeding the FCC radio
frequency exposure limits, human proximity to the antenna should be no less than 20 cm (8 inches),
including when the computer display is closed, and the antenna should be positioned at a 90-degree
The external WWAN antenna allows you to connect to a wireless wide-area network (WWAN), and then
to the Internet, using the integrated HP Broadband Wireless Module and service from a supported
cellular network operator.
Do not close the external WWAN antenna if you are connected to a WWAN.
For optimal transmission, keep the areas immediately around the antenna free from
Opening and closing the external WWAN antenna
