Operation Mode
This section provides general descriptions of the operating modes of the SL1000 Radio.
Power off Mode
The SL1000 shall enter Off mode when the On/Off Volume knob is rotated to the most counterclockwise position, beyond the detent. Upon entering off mode, the radio shall store its current
channel (if Power On Channel function is enabled via PC Programmer).
Power on Mode
The SL1000 shall enter Power-On mode when the On/Off Volume knob is rotated clockwise
beyond the detent. Upon entry of the Power-On mode, the radio shall perform the 1 time poweron alert to indicate that it has been turned on.
Cloning
Frequencies and functions can be programmed from radio to radio by using a cloning cable.
Password
If the password function is enabled, (dealer programmable) the user must enter a password for
the radio to become operational. At this time you can enter the password code by using the
EMG/PTT/MON/OPTION button in the correct sequence. Four button presses are required to
enter the code. If the code is not correct, the LED will blink red and there will be a double beep
repeated. To disable the password function radio must be reprogrammed by an authorised Maxon
dealer.
Scanning
Scanning is a Dealer programmable feature that allows you to monitor a number of channels.
Your Dealer will help you define a scanning mode and your channel "scan list".
Normal Channel Scan
Once the scan list has been established, initiate scanning by pressing the scan key or holding the
monitor button and rotate the channel switch to scan the enabled channels. Then the Green LED
flashes to confirm the scanning.
Page 12
English
User Manual
SL1000
If a conversation is detected on any of the channels in the scan list, the radio will stop on that
channel and you will be able to hear the conversation.
If programmed for normal scan TX, you will be able to transmit on that active channel during the
programmable scan delay time. (The scan delay time is the amount of time the radio will stay on
that channel once activity has ceased. Dealer programmable, 4-7 seconds is typical). The radio
will resume scanning once the scan delay time has expired, and will continue to scan until the
channel is changed. The LED will flash green.
When in scan mode, if power is switch off and on, the radio reverts back to "scanning"
automatically.
Nuisance Scan Delete
If there are any unwanted signals on any of the channels being scanned, they can be temporarily
removed from the scan list. When the scanning feature has locked onto the unwanted signal
simply press the monitor button. this will delete that channel from the scan list. When the radio is
switched off and back on the channel is restored in the scan channel list.
Priority Channel Scan
A single channel may be programmed as the "Priority" channel. The radio will constantly monitor
this channel while scanning. If a call is detected on the priority channel, the radio will
automatically move to, and remain on, the priority channel activity takes precedence over all
other conversations.
Fixed Key
PTT (Press to Talk)
Press and Hold to transmit. Release to enter the receive mode.
MONITOR
Releases the squelch and tone circuit to check whether the channel is busy.
OPTION
Short pressing:
Enable/disable scan

Dealer programmable features
Busy Lockout
The busy lock out feature Busy Channel Lockout – ON: Upon PTT being pressed, if carrier is
present, the radio will not transmit and an audible alert tone will be heard.
Busy Channel Lockout – OFF: Upon PTT being pressed, the radio will transmit regardless of the
presence of carrier.
Mark Idle
Marked Idle enabled: Can only be enabled if Busy Channel Lockout is ON. If the Busy Channel
Lockout is on and carrier is detected, the radio permits transmit if the RX squelch option is valid.
TX Delay
TX Delay is the delay time TX delay time when transmit. Eliminates squelch tails for SAT
transmissions by removing the SAT tone for approximately 200mS before the end of the
transmission. Increments of 1 second 1-30 seconds
Emergency
Emergency function is initiated when the upper orange side button is pressed and held for two
to three seconds; a pre-programmed sequence is sent, followed by a five seconds of audible
tones. The emergency feature can also be programmed to transmit on either a user defined
channel or the current channel.
Monitor
Monitor can be initiated by pressing the middle side button (monitor), the user can override the
programmed squelch operation and un-mute the speaker on the selected channel. Not only will
activity on that frequency be heard but ‘white noise’ will also be heard. When the user releases
the Monitor key, the radio will resume programmed squelch operation.
TOT (Time Out Timer)
Once the TOT has been enabled, the PTT Timer can be set from 10 – 2000 seconds with 10
second increments, which is the permitted time for a sustained transmission.
TOT Penalty The penalty timer restricts transmission for a set programmed time after the PTT
timer has expired, to allow a cool off period for the transmitter. The settings are from 1 – 100
seconds in 1 second increments.
Hi / Low RF Power
If programmed a short press of the lower option key can toggle the transmit output power
between High and Low.
Each channel can be programmed via the PC programmer to be high or low power. The power
can also be changed by the user to high-power output 5 Watts, and a low-power output, 1 Watt.

SL1000
CTCSS/DCS
The SL1000 Series radio(s) support 2 kinds of squelch options. A different squelch option can be
applied to each channel. Sub Audible Tone (SAT) codes are made up from frequencies which are
below 300Hz. These frequencies are lower than the voice audio band. The two most common
forms of SAT codes are CTCSS, Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System, and DCS, Digitally
Coded Squelch.
CTCSS/DCS information may be added to speech during transmission. A receiving radio can then
be programmed to behave according to which tones or codes are being sent by a transmitting
radio.
The SL6000 Series radio(s) are capable of generating all 47 standard CTCSS tones and can also
generate the 83 standard DCS codes and 83 inverted DCS codes.
CTCSS
47 kinds of TIA/EIA Standard CTCSS Tones can be set up. All tones can be set up using PC
Programmer.
TX Operation: If PTT key is pressed, the radio transmits programmed CTCSS tone.
RX Operation: If a CTCSS Tone is detected, the Radio status is changed from Busy to Correct
Call. If the CTCSS Tone is not detected, the radio will stay in Busy mode or change from Correct
Call to Busy mode and no audio will pass through the speaker.
DCS
The radio supports 83 kinds of TIA/EIA Normal/Inverted DCS codes.
TX Operation: If PTT key is pressed, the Radio transmits pre-programmed DCS Bit pattern.
RX Operation: If DCS Data Stream is detected, the radio status will change from busy mode to
correct call. If DCS data stream is not detected, the radio will stay in busy mode or be changed
from correct call back to busy mode.
