Switching Between Conventional Analog
and Digital Mode
6
Each channel in your radio can be
configured as a conventional
analog or conventional digital
channel.
Volume/Channel Knob
When switching from digital to
analog mode, certain features are
unavailable.
To switch between an analog or a
digital channel, use the
• Volume/Channel Knob, or
• programmed Channel Up or Channel Down buttons
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 19).
English
To use the programmed Channel Up or Channel
Down buttons, press Channel Up or Channel Down
to select the required channel.
Using the Volume/Channel Knob
The Volume/Channel Knob can be programmed as dual
purpose for both volume and channel or as a volume-only
control.
To adjust volume, see Adjusting the Volume on page 2.
To change channels, enter the channel selection state. Push
and hold the knob until you see the display blinking, then turn
the knob to the required channel. The display continues blinking
until you exit the channel selection state.
To exit channel selection state, do any of the following.
• Push the Volume/Channel Knob again
• Wait for the preset timer to expire
IP Site Connect
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.
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.
Capacity Plus
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.
You hear a negative indicator tone if you try to access a feature
not applicable to Capacity Plus via a programmable button
press.
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.
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.
NOTE: Each channel can only have either Scan or Roam
enabled, not both at the same time.
Check with your dealer or system administrator for more
information on this configuration.
Identifying Radio Controls
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.
NOTE: You cannot manually add or delete an entry to the roam
list. Check with your dealer or system administrator for
more information.
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
Selected Channel).
7
English
Linked Capacity Plus
Identifying Radio Controls
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.
8
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.
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.
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.
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.
English
NOTE: You cannot manually add or delete an entry to the
roam list. Check with your dealer or system
administrator for more information.
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
information on this configuration.
