IMPROVED AUDIO FEATURES
Low Level Expansion (LLE)
The LLE feature of your radio improves voice
quality by reducing unwanted background
noise when receiving a message. It is
compatible with most major types of audio
processing systems available today.
Companding
Companding is a feature that allows further
improvement of voice quality. It compresses
your voice at transmission, and expands it
when receiving while simultaneously reducing
extraneous noise. However, to enjoy this
benefit, ALL transmitting and receiving radios
must have this feature activated.
RADIO OVERVIEW
NOTE: Contact your dealer for your radio’s
current companding settings or to
change the settings.

BATTERY INFORMATION
•
Charging a hot battery (above 95°F
[35°C]) results in reduced discharge
capacity, affecting the performance of
the radio. Motorola rapid-rate battery
chargers contain a temperaturesensing circuit to ensure that the
battery is charged within these
temperature limits.
•
New batteries can be stored up to two
years without significant cycle loss.
Store new/unused batteries in a cool
dry area.
•
Batteries which have been in storage
should be charged overnight.
•
Do not return fully charged batteries to
the charger for an “extra boost”. This
action will significantly reduce cycle
life.
•
Do not leave your radio and battery in
the charger when not charging.
Continuous charging will shorten
battery life. (Do not use your charger
as a radio stand.)
Battery Care and Tips
This product is powered by a rechargeable
battery.
The following battery tips will help you obtain
the highest performance and longest cycle life
from your Motorola rechargeable battery.
•
Batteries are shipped uncharged from
the factory. Always charge a new
battery 14 - 16 hours before initial use,
regardless of the status indicated by
the charger.
•
Charging in non-Motorola equipment
may lead to battery damage and void
the battery warranty.
•
When charging a battery that is
attached to the radio, turn the radio off
to ensure a full charge.
•
The battery should be at about 77°F
(25°C) (room temperature) whenever
possible. Charging a cold battery,
(below 50°F [10°C]) may result in
GETTING STARTED
leakage of electrolyte and ultimately, in
failure of the battery.

03_GettingStarted.fm Page 12 Friday, July 22, 2005 11:12 AM
GETTING STARTED
•
For optimum battery life and operation
use only Motorola brand chargers.
They were designed to operate as an
integrated energy system.
Charging your Battery
When the battery level is very low, you need to
recharge the battery before you can continue
to use your radio.
1. Place the radio with the battery
attached or the battery alone in the
charger.
2. The charger’s LED would indicate the
charging progress.
NOTE: Because new batteries or batteries
that have not been used for several
months could prematurely indicate full
charge (solid green LED), charge the
batteries for 14 to 16 hours prior to initial use to achieve optimal performance.

communicate with a single unit without
involving other units in conversation.
EMERGENCY ALARMS

•
MDC Emergency Alarm (only if the
signaling system you are on is MDC),
and
•

The MDC Emergency Alarm feature
gives you a one-button quick access to
call a particular radio or center (predefined by your dealer) in emergency
situations. When activated, the radio

Press and release the Emergency button
(see page 17) to initiate an Emergency
Alarm.
2
Press and hold the Emergency button (see
page 17) to cancel the Emergency Alarm.
3
Press and release the Emergency button
(see page 17) to restart the Emergency
sequence.
TALKAROUND
In your communications network, you may be
using a repeater to cover a larger area than
what is possible with your radio. However, you
can communicate with another radio within
your radio’s range without going through the
repeater by using the Talkaround feature. This
is especially useful when the repeater is down
20
English
Press the programmed Repeater/Talkaround
button to toggle between the options of making or
not making a call through the repeater. A positive
indicator tone indicates that the radio is in
talkaround mode, while a negative indicator tone
indicates that the radio is in repeater mode.
SQUELCH
If a particular channel receives many
unwanted calls coming from radios that do not
belong to your communications group and are
some distance away, or the “background noise”
is excessive, you can try to filter these
transmissions out by tightening the channel’s
squelch. However, tightening squelch could
cause calls from members of your
communications group that are farther away to
be filtered out as well.
04_RadioCall.fm Page 21 Friday, July 22, 2005 11:13 AM
To set the squelch level:
Press the programmed Squelch button to toggle
between the options of having normal squelch or
tightening the squelch of your radio. A positive
indicator tone indicates that the radio is operating
in tight squelch, while a negative indicator tone
indicates that the radio is operating in normal
squelch.
POWER LEVEL
RADIO CALL
INFORMATION
You can transmit your calls at different transmit
power levels. A higher level means you can
reach a radio that is farther away. Lower power
level conserves battery power. You are advised
to transmit as frequently as possible on low
power, and use high power only when needed.
Press the programmed Tx Power button to toggle
between the options for High or Low power transmit level. A positive indicator tone indicates that
the radio is operating in low power mode, while a
negative indicator tone indicates that the radio is
operating in high power mode.

You can monitor several channels in order to
receive any call that is transmitted on any of
these channels. Sixteen different channels can
be programmed into a scan list. Each channel
can share the same scan list or have different
scan lists assigned to them.
Once the radio’s scan operation is activated
and the radio detects a call coming through a
channel in its scan list, it switches to that
channel for you to receive the call.
TALKBACK
If the programmable Talkback option is set, you
can respond to any calls received during the
scan operation by pressing the PTT button
before the programmed hang-time ends.
Check with your dealer for details.
DELETING A NUISANCE CHANNEL
If a channel continually generates unwanted
calls/noise, you can temporarily remove it from
the scan list by performing a Nuisance
Channel Delete operation.
