During a call, if the Channel Free Indication feature is
enabled on your radio (programmed by your dealer), you

Your radio also has features available in both analog and digital
mode. However, the minor differences in the way each feature
works does NOT affect the performance of your radio.
NOTE: Your radio also switches between digital and analog
modes during a dual mode scan (see Scan on
page 32).
To use the programmed Channel Up or Channel
Down buttons, while in the Home Screen of the
required Zone, press Channel Up or Channel Down
to select the required channel.
Using the Volume/Channel Knob
IP Site Connect
This feature allows your radio to extend conventional
communication beyond the reach of a single site, by connecting
to different available sites which are connected via an Internet
Protocol (IP) network.
When the radio moves out of range from one site and into the
range of another, it connects to the new site's repeater to send
or receive calls/data transmissions. Depending on your settings,
this is done automatically or manually.
To adjust volume, see Adjusting the Volume on page 3.
If the radio is set to do this automatically, it scans through all
available sites when the signal from the current site is weak or
when the radio is unable to detect any signal from the current
site. It then locks on to the repeater with the strongest Received
Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) value.
To change channels, push and hold the knob until channel
selection screen is displayed, then turn the knob to the required
channel.
In a manual site search, the radio searches for the next site in
the roam list that is currently in range (but which may not have
the strongest signal) and locks on to it.
The Volume/Channel Knob can be programmed as dual
purpose for both volume and channel or as a volume-only
control.
To exit channel selection state, do any of the following.

Channels with this feature enabled can be added to a particular
roam list. The radio searches the channel(s) in the roam list
during the automatic roam operation to locate the best site.
A roam list supports a maximum of 16 channels (including the

Capacity Plus
Linked Capacity Plus
Linked Capacity Plus is a multi-site multi-channel trunking
configuration of the MOTOTRBO radio system, combining the
best of both Capacity Plus and IP Site Connect configurations.
Capacity Plus is a single-site trunking configuration of the
MOTOTRBO radio system, which uses a pool of channels to
support hundreds of users and up to 254 Groups. This feature
allows your radio to efficiently utilize the available number of
programmed channels while in Repeater Mode.
Linked Capacity Plus allows your radio to extend trunking
communication beyond the reach of a single site, by connecting
to different available sites which are connected via an Internet
Protocol (IP) network. It also provides an increase in capacity by
efficiently utilizing the combined available number of
programmed channels supported by each of the available sites.
Icons of features not applicable to Capacity Plus are not
available in the menu. You hear a negative indicator tone if you
try to access a feature not applicable to Capacity Plus via a
programmable button press.
When the radio moves out of range from one site and into the
range of another, it connects to the new site's repeater to send
or receive calls/data transmissions. Depending on your settings,
this is done automatically or manually.
Your radio also has features that are available in conventional
digital mode, IP Site Connect, Capacity Plus and Linked
Capacity Plus. However, the minor differences in the way each
feature works does NOT affect the performance of your radio.
If the radio is set to do this automatically, it scans through all
available sites when the signal from the current site is weak or
when the radio is unable to detect any signal from the current
site. It then locks on to the repeater with the strongest Received
Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) value.
Check with your dealer or system administrator for more
information on this configuration.

English
In a manual site search, the radio searches for the next site in
the roam list that is currently in range (but which may not have
the strongest signal) and locks on to it.
Any channel with Linked Capacity Plus enabled can be added
to a particular roam list. The radio searches these channels
during the automatic roam operation to locate the best site.
Similar to Capacity Plus, icons of features not applicable to
Linked Capacity Plus are not available in the menu. You hear a
negative indicator tone if you try to access a feature not
applicable to Linked Capacity Plus via a programmable button
press.
Check with your dealer or system administrator for more

Vote Scan
Vote Scan provides you with wide area coverage in areas where
there are multiple base stations transmitting identical
information on different analog channels.
Contacts provides “address-book” capabilities on your radio.
Each entry corresponds to an alias or ID that you use to initiate
a call.
Your radio scans analog channels of multiple base stations and
performs a voting process to select the strongest received
signal. Once that is established, your radio unmutes to
transmissions from that base station.
Each entry, depending on context, associates with one of five
types of calls: Group Call, Private Call, All Call, PC Call or
Dispatch Call.
The yellow LED blinks and the vote scan icon appears on the
status bar.

Privacy
If enabled, this feature helps to prevent eavesdropping by
unauthorized users on a channel by the use of a softwarebased scrambling solution. The signaling and user identification
portions of a transmission are not scrambled.
Advanced Features
Your radio must have privacy enabled on the channel to send a
privacy-enabled transmission, although this is not a necessary
requirement for receiving a transmission. While on a privacyenabled channel, the radio is still able to receive clear
(unscrambled) transmissions.
Your radio supports Enhanced Privacy. To unscramble a
privacy-enabled call or data transmission, your radio must be
programmed to have the same Key Value and Key ID as the
transmitting radio.
If your radio receives a scrambled call that is of a different Key
Value and Key ID, you will hear nothing at all.
The green LED lights up while the radio is transmitting and
double blinks when the radio is receiving an ongoing privacyenabled transmission.
NOTE: Some radio models/locations may not offer this Privacy
feature. Check with your dealer or system administrator
for more information.

Following no user activity for a programmed duration, the radio
pre-warns the user via an audio indicator once the inactivity
timer expires.
If there is still no acknowledgment by the user before the
predefined reminder timer expires, the radio initiates an
Emergency Alarm.
Only one of the following Emergency Alarms is assigned to this
feature:
• Emergency Alarm
• Emergency Alarm with Call
• Emergency Alarm with Voice to Follow
The radio remains in the emergency state allowing voice
messages to proceed until action is taken. See Emergency
Operation on page 44 on ways to exit Emergency.
NOTE: This feature is limited to radios with this function
enabled. Check with your dealer or system
administrator for more information.
NOTE:
This feature allows you to use your radio with a Bluetoothenabled device (accessory) via a Bluetooth connection. Your
radio supports both Motorola and COTS (Commercially
available Off-The-Shelf) Bluetooth-enabled devices.
Bluetooth operates within a range of 10 meters line of sight.
This is an unobstructed path between your radio and your
Bluetooth-enabled device.
It is not recommended that you leave your radio behind and
expect your Bluetooth-enabled device to work with a high
degree of reliability when they are separated.
At the fringe areas of reception, both voice and tone quality will
start to sound "garbled" or "broken". To correct this problem,
simply position your radio and Bluetooth-enabled device closer
to each other (within the 10-meter defined range) to re-establish
clear audio reception. Your radio’s Bluetooth function has a
maximum power of 2.5 mW (4 dBm) at the 10-meter range.
Advanced Features
This feature prompts an emergency to be raised if there is no
user activity, such as any radio button press or activation of the
channel selector, for a predefined time.
Bluetooth
Your radio can support up to 3 simultaneous Bluetooth
connections with Bluetooth-enabled devices of unique types.
For example, a headset, a scanner, and a PTT-Only Device
(POD). Multiple connections with Bluetooth-enabled devices of
the same type are not supported.
Refer to your respective Bluetooth-enabled device’s user
manual for more details on your Bluetooth-enabled device’s full
capabilities.
