SAFETY TRAINING INFORMATION
SAFETY TRAINING INFORMATION
WARNING
This radio produces RF electromagnetic energy when
transmitting and is designed and classified for “Occupational Use Only”. Radio equipment with this classification must be used only during the course of employment
by individuals aware of the hazards and the ways to minimize such hazards. This radio is NOT intended for use by
the General Population in an uncontrolled environment.
This radio has been tested and complies with FCC
RF exposure limits for “Occupational Use Only”. In
addition, it complies with the following standards and
guidelines with regard to RF energy and electromagnetic
energy levels and evaluation of such levels for exposure
to humans:
•
FCC OET Bulletin 65 Edition 97-01 Supplement C,
Evaluating Compliance with FCC Guidelines for
Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic
Fields.
•
American National Standards Institute (C95.1-1992),
IEEE Standard for Safety Levels with Respect to
Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic
Fields, 3 kHz to 300 GHz.
•
American National Standards Institute (C95.3 -1992),
IEEE Recommended Practice for the Measurement of
Potentially Hazardous Electromagnetic Fields - RF
and Microwave.
•
DO NOT transmit more than 50% of total radio use
time (50% duty cycle). Transmitting for more than
50% of the time can cause FCC RF exposure compliance requirements to be exceeded. This radio is transmitting whenever the indicator on the front panel is red
continuously. Pressing the PTT switch on the side
usually causes the radio to transmit.
•
ALWAYS keep the antenna and radio at least 2.54 cm
(1.0 inch) away from your body when transmitting to
ensure FCC RF exposure compliance requirements are
not exceeded. The best transmission quality results
when the antenna is at least 5 cm (2 inches) away from
your mouth and angled slightly to one side.
•
This unit has not been tested for FCC RF exposure
compliance in applications where the unit is transmitting while body worn on the belt clip. This product is
not intended for use in applications where transmissions are required while the unit is body worn with the
use of the belt clip.
Electromagnetic Interference/Usage
Compatibility
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules.
Operation is subject to the condition that this device does
not cause harmful interference. In addition, changes or
modification to this equipment not expressly approved
by the E.F. Johnson Company could void the user’s
authority to operate this equipment (FCC Rules, 47CFR
Part 15.19).
To ensure that your exposure to RF electromagnetic
energy is within the FCC allowable limits for occupational use, always adhere to the following guidelines:
DO NOT operate the radio without the proper antenna
attached. This may damage the radio and cause FCC
RF exposure limits to be exceeded. The proper antenna
is the antenna supplied with the radio by the manufacturer or an antenna specifically authorized by the
manufacturer for use with this radio.
DO NOT use any accessories not specifically authorized by the E.F. Johnson Company for use with this
radio such as batteries, speaker-microphones, belt
clips, and antennas. The use of unauthorized accessories can cause FCC RF exposure compliance requirements to be exceeded.
NOTE: The preceding information is provided to make
you aware of RF exposure and what to do to ensure that
this radio is operated within FCC RF exposure limits.
CAUTION
•
•
DO NOT operate it in areas that are sensitive to RF
energy such as aircraft, hospitals, blasting sites, and fuel
storage sites. Areas with potentially flammable atmospheres are usually, but not always, clearly posted. These
may include gas stations, fuel and chemical storage and
transfer stations, below deck on boats, and areas where
the air contains flammable chemicals or particles such as
grain dust or metal powders.
Dispose of the nickel metal-hydride (NiMH) or
nickel-cadmium (NiCd) battery used by this radio in
accordance with local regulations. DO NOT dispose of it
in fire because it can explode. Also, do not short the
terminals because it may become very hot.

GENERAL OPERATION
Turning Power On
Setting Volume
Power is turned on and off by the top panel OnOff/Volume switch. When power is initially turned on,
the transceiver goes through a self test routine in
which the following information is displayed:
The relative volume level can be determined by
the position of the index on the volume knob or a
reference tone as follows. The minimum volume level
may be set by programming. This can prevent missed
messages resulting from inadvertently turning the
volume to an inaudible level.

selected and the Display Information option key or
menu parameter is programmed, either the channel
frequency or alias can be displayed (see page 18).
The power-up password feature prevents unauthorized use of the transceiver by locking the keypad
on power up until the proper password is entered. This
feature is enabled or disabled by programming.
Low Battery Indication
NOTE: If the transceiver contains hardware (encryption) keys, be sure to reattach a battery within approximately one minute to prevent the loss of these keys.
When it is enabled, “ENTER PSWD” is briefly
displayed when power is turned on. The eight-digit
numeric password must be then be entered as follows.
If an incorrect password is entered, “INCORRECT” is
displayed and it must be re-entered.
A low-battery condition is indicated by the

Zone And Channel Select
As indicated in the preceding “Note”, the transceiver must be connected to a constant power source
to preserve the hardware (encryption) keys in memory.
Since these keys are maintained in memory for only
about 1 minute without a battery attached, be sure to
reattach a battery within that time if these keys are
used. Refer to see page 10 for more information on
encryption keys.
Zone Select
The front panel Up/Down switch changes and
displays the current zone. When not in special modes
such as the menu mode, pressing either the top or
bottom part of this switch once displays the current
zone number as “Zone x”. Then quickly pressing it
again changes the selected zone up or down.
Backlight
After the highest programmed zone is displayed,
wrap-around to the lowest programmed zone occurs
and vice versa. The selected zone is also displayed
briefly on power up.
The backlight for the display and option keys can
be programmed to automatically turn on when any key
is pressed. It then automatically turns off after a
programmed delay of 0-7.5 seconds so that battery
drain is minimized. If the Backlight option key or
menu parameter is programmed, it can be used to
manually turn the backlight on and off.
Channel Select
Channels are selected by the rotary 16-position
switch on the top panel. The alias (identification) for
the selected channel/group is displayed continuously
during normal operation.
Keypad Lock
The Keypad Lock feature is used to temporarily
disable the front panel keys to prevent accidental key
presses. This feature is available if the Keypad Lock
option key is programmed.
When an unprogrammed channel is selected,
“UNPROGRAMD” is displayed and a tone sounds (if
tones are enabled). When conventional channels are

conditions. Enhanced features include roaming
(SmartZone only), telephone, private, and emergency
calls, Call Alert™, and messaging. Either analog or
digital signaling may be used. Operating features
unique to SMARTNET/SmartZone operation are
described starting on page 23.
To lock the keypad, simply press the Keypad
Lock option key. Then to unlock the keypad again,
press and hold this key until a tone sounds (approximately 1 second).
With DTMF keypad models, the DTMF keys can
also be totally disabled by programming on some or
all channels. The Keypad Lock feature then has no
affect on those keys.
When a SMARTNET or SmartZone channel is
selected or the radio is powered up on one of those
channels, it searches for a control channel. Once a
control channel is found, it attempts to register on the
radio system and the alias (name) of the selected
channel is displayed. If a control channel could not be
found (because of an out of range condition or the
system ID is not correct, for example), “NO SYS” or a
similar message is displayed and the radio continues to
search for a control channel.

This transceiver does not have a squelch control.
The squelch level is fixed and normally does not
require readjustment.
Transceiver Operating Modes
The control channel transmits and receives
system information to and from all radios registered on
the system. Therefore, once a control channel is found,
it is continuously monitored for incoming call information and is used to make call requests. The radio
automatically changes to a traffic channel to place and
receive calls and then returns to the control channel
when the call is complete.
Introduction
Each selectable channel can be programmed for
either conventional or SMARTNET/SmartZone operation. For example, Zone 1/Channel 1 could be a
conventional channel, Zone 1/Channel 2 a
SMARTNET channel, and so on. Your system operator can tell you what type or types of operation are
programmed. Mode information on these modes
follows.
Secure Communication
General
Conventional Operating Mode
This transceiver may be optionally equipped to
provide secure communication on some or all channels. This feature encrypts your voice so that it can be
understood only by someone using a transceiver
equipped with a similar encryption device and encryption codes.
This is a non-trunked operating protocol which
accesses independent radio channels. There is no automatic access to several channels. Monitoring of the
channel before transmitting may not be automatic in
this mode, so you may have to do it manually to make
sure that it is not in use. Either analog or digital
(Project 25) signaling may be used. Operating features
unique to this mode are described starting on page 16.
When a secure call is received or transmitted,
is indicated in the display. Secure communication
can be programmed on a per channel basis to operate
in various ways. If the current channel is programmed
to allow it to be selected, secure communication can
be manually enabled and disabled by the Clear/Secure
option key or menu parameter. In the receive mode,
secure calls may be auto detected or only calls coded
like the transmit signal may be received.
SMARTNET/SmartZone Operating Mode
This is a trunked operating protocol that provides
automatic access to several channels. A “channel”
actually selects a talk group which is programmed
with one or more ID codes that determine what
mobiles are being called and what calls are received.
Monitoring is performed automatically, and special
tones and messages indicate busy and out-of-range
If the “Clear” mode is selected by Clear/Secure
key or menu parameter and an attempt is made to

RADIO-WIDE FEATURES
Each channel programmed for encryption has an
encryption key associated with it. Up to 16 keys can
be loaded into the radio, and the location from 0-15
refers to the “Hardware” location of the key. If more
than one key is loaded, the Hardware Key Select
option key may be programmed to select another key
for a channel. A new key selection remains in affect
until it is manually changed again. Select a hardware
key as follows:
transmit on a channel fixed in the “Secure” mode by
programming, “SEC ONLY” is displayed and transmitting is not permitted. Conversely, if the “Secure”
mode is selected and the channel is fixed in the
“Clear” mode, “CLEAR ONLY” is displayed and
transmitting is not permitted.
If your transceiver has encryption, consult your
system operator for more information on how it functions in your application.
1. Press the Hardware Key Select key or select that
menu parameter and HWKEY x is displayed (“x” is
the current key selection from 0-15).
Encryption (Hardware) Keys
NOTE: A nearly constant power source must be
applied to the radio to maintain the encryption keys in
memory. Therefore, when changing the battery, be sure
to reattach another battery within one minute. If it is
not, these keys may be lost and will need to be
reloaded again.
2. Press the Up/Down switch to display the desired key
and then press the Hardware Key Select key again or
F2 key to select it and return to normal operation.
RADIO-WIDE FEATURES
Option Keys
Almost all the transceiver keys are programmable
unless they are dedicated to a specific function. These
keys can be programmed by your system operator for
one set of functions in the Conventional mode and
another in the SMARTNET/SmartZone mode as
described on page 10. Table 5 on page 12 lists the
programmable keys, the functions that can be
programmed in each mode, and the page of this
manual on which the function is described.

Time-Out Timer
If the transmitter is keyed for longer than the
programmed time, the transmitter is disabled, a continuous tone sounds, and “TX TIMEOUT” is displayed.
Five seconds before time-out occurs, a warning beep
sounds to indicate that time-out is approaching. The
timer and tone are reset by releasing the PTT switch. A
different time may be programmed on each channel.
The time-out timer disables the transmitter if it is
keyed continuously for longer than the programmed
time. It can be programmed for times from 15 seconds
up to 3 minutes, 45 seconds or it can be disabled.
Conventional channels can also be programmed
with a penalty timer which prevents transmissions for
a time after the transmitter is disabled by the time-out
timer. Refer to page 17 for more information.

enabled at a time. For example, if standard scanning is
enabled and radio wide scanning is selected, standard
scanning is automatically disabled. More information
on these types of scanning follows.
If the Home Zone option key or menu parameter is
programmed, it can be used to quickly select the
preprogrammed home zone. The transceiver is also
programmed so that when power is turned on, the
home or last selected zone is automatically selected.
Standard Scanning
Power Output Select
Standard scanning monitors only channels that
are the same type as that currently selected. For
example, if a conventional channel is selected, only
conventional channels are scanned. Standard scanning
operates as follows:
If selectable power is allowed on the channel by
programming, the High/Low Power option key or
menu parameter can be used to select high or low
power. Low power increases battery life but may
decrease range and vice versa for high power.
The new level is flashed in the display as either
“HI POWER” or “LOW POWER”. If selectable
power is not permitted on the current channel,
“FIXED LOW” or “FIXED HIGH” is flashed and no
power change occurs. The selected power level on the
channel is permanent until it is manually changed
again.
•
Enable scanning using the Scan option key or menu
parameter. Scanning is enabled when the
icon
is displayed.
•
To turn scanning off, press the Scan option key
again or select “Off” in the scan menu. Scanning is
disabled when the
icon is no longer displayed.
•
If the zone or channel is changed while scanning is
selected, scanning continues on the same or a
different scan list (see “Standard Mode Scan Lists”
on page 14).
Alert Tone Select
The various alert tones that sound are described
on page 30. These tones can be turned on and off if the
Alert Tone option key or Tones menu parameter is
programmed. When all tones are off, “TONE OFF” is
momentarily displayed, and when all tones are on,
“TONE ON” is momentarily displayed. If this key or
menu parameter is not programmed, tones are fixed in
the on or off mode by programming.
Radio Wide Scanning
Radio wide scanning monitors the channels in the
radio-wide scan list. This scan list can include up to 16
channels of any type and assigned to any zone (see
“Radio Wide Scan List” on page 14). Radio wide
scanning is turned on and off by the Radio Wide Scan
option key or menu parameter as follows. If this key or
menu parameter is not programmed, radio wide scanning is not available.
Scanning
Introduction
Scanning monitors the channels in the scan list
for messages that the transceiver is programmed to
receive. When a message is detected, scanning stops
and the message is received. Shortly after the message
is complete, scanning resumes (unless it has been
disabled).
There are two basic scan modes available: Standard and Radio Wide. The operation of the standard
type is unique to the type of channel selected, and the
operation of Radio Wide type is the same regardless of

RADIO-WIDE FEATURES
Scan Resume Delay
Scan Lists
When a message is received or transmitted while
scanning, there is a delay before scanning resumes.
The delay after receiving a call prevents another
message from being received before a response can be
made. The delay after transmitting a call ensures that a
response is heard instead of another message occurring
on some other channel.
Radio Wide Scan List
Transmitting in the Scan Mode
Standard Mode Scan Lists
When the transmitter is keyed while scanning is
enabled, the transmission may occur on the receive,
selected, or priority channel, depending on the operating mode and programming.
NOTE: The selected channel is always scanned.
With radio wide scanning, there is only one scan
list available regardless of the type of channel selected,
and it is not user programmable. This scan list can
contain up to 16 channels of any type. For example, it
could include six conventional channels and ten
SMARTNET/SmartZone channels.
A scan list is simply the channels that are scanned
when scanning is selected. With conventional and
SMARTNET/SmartZone operation, several scan lists
can be programmed by your system operator, and each
list can include up to 16 channels/talk groups.
Nuisance Channel Add/Delete
The channels/groups in a list are user programmable if the Scan Edit option key or menu parameter
is programmed. Refer to “Programming a Scan List”
which follows for more information.
With standard scanning, both conventional and
SMARTNET/SmartZone channels can be temporarily
deleted from the scan list, for example, if messages
become annoying. This feature is not available with
radio wide scanning. Channels can also be permanently added or deleted from a scan list as described in
the next section. Proceed as follows to temporarily
delete a nuisance channel:
The specific list that is scanned is user selectable
if the Scan (List) Select option key or menu parameter
is programmed. Refer to “Selecting a Scan List” which
follows for more information.
Determining Which Channels are in Scan List
NOTE: The selected channel and also conventional
priority channels cannot be deleted from the scan list.
The channels in the radio-wide and conventional
scan lists are indicated as follows. Channels in the
SMARTNET/SmartZone lists are indicated only when
editing a scan list.
1. While receiving a message on the channel to be
deleted, press and hold the Scan option key until a
tone sounds (about 2 seconds).
1. To view the conventional scan list, enable standard
scanning using the Scan key or menu parameter.
Likewise, to view the radio wide scan list, enable
radio wide scanning using the Radio Wide Scan key
or menu parameter. Also select the scan list if applicable as described in the following “Selecting a
Scan List” description.
2. The channel is then deleted and scanning of the
remaining channels in the scan list resumes.
3. Deleted channels are added back into the scan list if
any of the following occur:
•

Selecting a Scan List
1. Make sure that both standard and radio wide scanning are off (
icon not displayed). Select a
conventional or SMARTNET/SmartZone channel
corresponding to the scan list being programmed.
Conventional Operation - The scan list is user selectable if the Scan (List) Select option key or menu
parameter is programmed. Otherwise, it is a fixed list.
Changing a list with this option key or menu parameter is temporary since the programmed default list is
reselected at power up.
2. Select the scan edit mode using the Scan Edit option
key or menu parameter. This mode is indicated by
in the display.
3. If applicable, select the list to be edited by pressing
the Up/Down switch. Select the desired list by
pressing the F2 key. The selected list is indicated as
“LIST x”. If user programming is disabled on a list,
“NO EDIT” is momentarily displayed and it cannot
be edited.
SMARTNET/SmartZone Operation - Each channel
(talk group) is programmed to select one of
programmed lists. In addition, each channel can be
programmed so that scanning is automatically enabled
or disabled (No List) when it is selected. If the Scan
(List) Select option key or menu parameter is
programmed, the list that is selected by all channels of
the current system can be temporarily changed. The
default list programmed for each channel is automatically reselected at power up.
4. Select the channel you want to add or delete by
pressing the Up/Down switch. After the last channel
in the current zone is displayed, the first valid
channel in the next zone is displayed and vice versa.
Lists are limited to 16 channels. If an attempt is
made to add more than 16, “LIST FULL” is
displayed and a channel must be deleted before
another can be added.
Select the scan list as follows:
1. With scanning disabled (
icon not displayed),
press the Scan List option key or select the Scan
Selct menu parameter.
NOTE: A conventional priority channel cannot be
deleted (see page 18).
2. The currently selected list is displayed as “List x”,
where “x” is the currently selected list. To exit
without changing the selected list, simply press the
Scan List option key again or the F1 or F2 key.

CONVENTIONAL MODE FEATURES
CONVENTIONAL MODE FEATURES
Introduction
Monitor Mode - There may be times when a busy
condition is indicated even though no one is using the
channel. Monitoring should then be performed by
enabling the monitor mode described next. The
Normal/Selective function may also be used on analog
channels (see description on page 17).
An overview of conventional operation is located
on page 10. The following information describes the
features unique to conventional operation, both analog
and digital (Project 25). Refer to the preceding
“Radio-Wide Features” section for information on
features common to all operating modes. Features
unique to SMARTNET/SmartZone operation are
described starting on page 23.
Monitor Mode
The monitor mode temporarily disables squelch
control features (such as Call Guard squelch) and
unsquelches the receiver so that all activity on the
channel can be monitored. In addition, it overrides the
Busy Channel Lockout feature (see next section) and
temporarily disables scanning.
Monitoring Before Transmitting
Introduction
With conventional operation, you may need to
manually monitor the channel before transmitting to
make sure that it is not be used by someone else. If
your were to transmit while someone else is using the
channel, you would probably disrupt their conversation. With SMARTNET/SmartZone operation, monitoring is always performed automatically. Monitor
conventional channels automatically or manually as
follows:
To select the monitor mode, briefly press the
Monitor option key or select the menu parameter. This
mode is indicated when
is displayed. To disable the
monitor mode and return to normal operation, press
the Monitor option key again or select “Off” in the
menu mode.
This feature may also be useful during weak
signal conditions if intermittent squelching makes a
message difficult to understand. When scanning,
pressing and holding the option key until a tone
sounds monitors the scanned channel instead of the
selected channel (if it is different).
Automatic Channel Monitoring
If the selected channel is programmed with the
Busy Channel Lockout feature (consult your system
operator), monitoring is performed automatically.
Refer to the description of this feature on page 16 for
more information.
Busy Channel Lockout
Manual Channel Monitoring
The Busy Channel Lockout feature (also called
Transmit Disable on Busy) automatically disables the
transmitter if the channel is busy when the PTT switch
is pressed. When the transmitter is disabled by this
feature, “BUSY” is displayed, a busy tone sounds, and
the transmitter is disabled. Each channel is
programmed to operate in one of the following modes:
The automatic monitoring just described may
occasionally disable the transmitter when the channel
is not in use. In this case, you may need to manually
monitor the channel as follows:
Busy Indicator - With scanning disabled, note if the
multi-function indicator on the front panel is steady
green. If it is not, the channel is not being used and a
call can be transmitted. It it is green, the channel may
be busy and a call should not be placed (see next paragraph).
Off - Busy channel lockout is disabled and the transmitter keys even if the channel is busy.
Noise - If any activity is detected on the channel, the
transmitter is disabled when the PTT switch is pressed.

CONVENTIONAL MODE FEATURES
temporarily overridden with a code selected from this
list.
Tone (NAC) - If the detected Call Guard or NAC
(Project 25) squelch coding is incorrect, the transmitter is disabled when the PTT switch is pressed.
This code list is programmed with up to sixteen
CTCSS and DCS codes for use on analog channels
plus up to sixteen NAC codes for use on digital
(Project 25) channels. When a selective squelch (Call
Guard) code is changed as describe below, it remains
selected even if other channels are selected. However,
if transceiver power is cycled or a talk-around channel
is selected, the normal codes are reselected.
If Busy Channel Override is permitted by
programming, it is possible to transmit when the transmitter is disabled by this feature. Simply release and
then quickly press the push-to-talk (PTT) switch again.
Call Guard Squelch
Introduction
When scanning, the selected code also applies to
all scanned channels. If both analog and digital channels can be selected or scanned, the CTCSS/DCS code
for the selected position is used for analog channels
and the NAC code for the selected position is used for
P25 channels. Proceed as follows to select a preprogrammed Call Guard code:
Call Guard squelch (also called CTCSS/DCS
signaling) can be programmed on conventional analog
channels. This feature eliminates distracting messages
intended for others using the channel. This is done by
using a subaudible tone or digital code to control the
squelch. This tone or code is unique to a user or a
group on that channel, and is transmitted by the mobile
placing a call. If Call Guard squelch is programmed in
the mobile receiving the call, it must detect the correct
tone or code to receive the call.
1. Press the Selective Squelch Code option key or
select the Sqlch Code menu mode parameter. Then
press the Up/Down switch to select the desired code.
The display indicates “SEL SQ xx” where, “xx” is
the selected code from 1-16.
Call Guard Squelch Enable/Disable
2. To select the displayed code and return to the normal
display, press the F2 (Select) key or the Selective
Squelch key again.
The Normal/Selective option key or menu parameter (if programmed) can be used to disable receive
Call Guard squelch so that all calls are heard. When it
is disabled, “Sq Normal” is flashed in the display, and
when it is enabled, “Sq Select” is flashed.
3. To check which code is selected, press the Selective
Squelch key once to display the current selection
and then again to return to normal operation.
The receiver unsquelches only if activity is
detected on the channel, and scanning is not disabled.
The selected mode is in effect until it is manually
changed again. Selecting another channel or cycling
power does not reselect a default condition.
4. To return to the normal selective squelch codes,
select “DEFAULT” in this mode. As previously
described, the normal codes are also automatically
reselected whenever transceiver power is cycled or
a talk-around channel is selected.
When this function is used on a digital channel,
talk group detect is disabled, so calls to all groups are
heard. However, the correct NAC is still detected, so
calls with another NAC are not heard (see page 19).
Penalty Timer
A penalty timer may be programmed on conventional systems to prevent transmissions for the
programmed time after the time-out timer disables the
transmitter (see page 12). The penalty timer can be
programmed for the same times as the time-out timer,
and timing starts when the PTT switch is released. If
the PTT switch is pressed during the penalty time, the
time-out indication occurs again and the transmitter
Selective Squelch Code Select
A different CTCSS/DCS/NAC squelch code can
be temporarily selected if the Squelch Code option key
or menu parameter and a CTCSS/NAC code list have

sounds and the transmitter can be keyed.
Conversation Timer
Emergency Mode
A conversation timer can be programmed on
conventional systems in addition to the time-out timer
described on page 12. This timer limits the total length
of a conversation rather than just the length of each
transmission as with the time-out timer. More information on this timer follows:
•
•
•
•
The Emergency option key or menu parameter
can be programmed to alert a dispatcher or someone
else of an emergency condition. It is available on
conventional digital (Project 25) and/or SMARTNET/
SmartZone channels, but not conventional analog
channels. If you have this function, consult your
system operator for more information on how it is
used in your application.
It can be programmed for times up to 7.5 minutes.
It is reset when the time between transmissions
exceeds the time programmed for the penalty timer
just described.
A warning beep sounds 5 seconds before this timer
disables the transmitter.
When this timer disables the transmitter, a continuous tone sounds and the red transmit indicator
turns off. The PTT switch must then be released
until the penalty timer expires (indicated by a beep).
Conventional Mode Scanning
Channel scanning features common to all operating modes are described starting on page 13. When
the transmitter is keyed with scanning enabled, the
transceiver can be programmed so that transmission
always occurs on one of the following channels:
Repeater Talk-Around
•
•
•
Normally, all transmissions go through a repeater
which usually increases range. However, there may be
times when you are out of range of the repeater and
therefore unable to talk to anyone even though the
mobile being called is only a short distance away. To
allow communication in this situation, repeater talkaround can be selected. Transmissions then occur on
the receive frequency which permits direct mobile-tomobile communication.
Selected channel
Priority channel (see following)
Channel of the call if a response is made before
scanning resumes.
Priority Channel Sampling
General
The priority channel sampling feature ensures
that messages on the priority channel are not missed
while listening to a message on some other channel.
The transceiver can be programmed so that the priority
channel is a fixed channel programmed in the current
scan list, the currently selected channel, or not used.
When scanning and the selected channel is a fixed
priority channel,
is indicated in the display.
Repeater talk-around can be selected if the RTA
option key or menu parameter is programmed. When
talk-around is enabled by this key,
is displayed.
This feature remains enabled during scanning, and the
selected mode does not change when another channel
is selected or power is cycled. Talk-around is available
on conventional channels only.
Priority channel sampling occurs only with standard conventional scanning. It does not occur with
radio-wide scanning, when listening to any type of
SMARTNET/SmartZone call, or when transmitting. A
series of “ticks” may be heard when the priority
channel is sampled while listening to a message on
some other conventional channel.
Displaying Transmit and Receive Frequency
If the Displayed Information option key or menu
parameter is programmed, it can be used to display the
channel frequency in megahertz. Pressing this key
toggles between displaying the standard channel alias
and the channel frequency. The receive frequency is
18

CONVENTIONAL MODE FEATURES
Changing the Priority Channel
Project 25 (Digital) Mode Features
If a priority channel is associated with the current
scan list, it can be permanently changed using the
Priority option key or menu parameter as follows.
Viewing Individual ID
Each transceiver which operates on Project 25
(digital) channels is assigned an eight-digit individual
ID. When power is turned on with a Project 25 channel
selected, the individual ID of your radio is briefly
displayed.
1. Make sure scanning is disabled (
icon not
displayed) and the desired scan list is selected (see
page 14).
Group IDs
2. Select the desired channel and then press the
Priority option key or select that menu parameter.
“Priority” is then flashed to indicate that the current
channel is now the priority channel when scanning
that list.
Each Project 25 channel is programmed with a
group ID code that determines the group of mobiles
which will receive your call on that channel and also
which calls you can receive.
NOTE: The priority channel can also be changed
when editing a scan list as described on page 15.
Selective Squelch
Project 25 conventional channels use a NAC
(Network Access Code) instead of Call Guard squelch
(see page 17) to control which calls are received on a
channel. Both the correct group ID and NAC must be
detected to receive a call. However, other operation,
such as monitoring, is similar to when Call Guard
squelch is used.
Placing and Receiving Conventional Calls
Placing a Standard Conventional Call
1. Turn power on and set the volume as described on
page 8. Select the zone and channel programmed for
the mobile you want to call as described on page 9.
The NAC code can also be manually selected like
Call Guard codes if the Squelch Code option key and a
code list have been programmed. The procedure is the

Keypad Programming
Unit Calls
NOTE: The Keypad programming feature is available
to Federal Government users only. Users regulated by
the Federal Communications Commission are not
allowed to have this feature.
Unit Calls (also called Individual Calls) can be
placed to a specific radio on a Project 25 channel if the
Unit Call option key or menu parameter is
programmed. This call differs from standard group
calls in that only one mobile instead of entire groups
of mobiles may receive the call. The mobiles that can
be called are preprogrammed by you system operator.
Proceed as follows to transmit and receive a Unit Call:
Introduction
Keypad programming is available on Federal
radios if the Keypad Programming option key or menu
parameter is programmed. It is then selected by simply
pressing that key or selecting that menu parameter.
The keypad programming mode is indicated by
“ZONE CHG” and
in the display.
1. To transmit a unit call, press the Unit Call option key
or select the Unit Call menu parameter. The alias
(tag) of the last Unit Call is displayed.
2. If required, press the Up/Down switch to display the
desired call. The alias and ID of the unit calls that
have been programmed are alternately displayed.
Keypad programming allows conventional
channel parameters such as the transmit and receive
frequency and Call Guard squelch code to be changed.
In addition, several conventional mode timers can be
changed. It cannot be used to reprogram disabled
channels or any SMARTNET/SmartZone information.
3. Press the PTT switch and begin talking.
4. When a unit ID call is received, two beeps sound (if
tones are enabled), and “Call Rcvd” and the alias or
frequency of the currently selected talk group are
alternately flashed.
Menu Structure
A menu system is used to select parameters to be
changed in the keypad programming mode. A flowchart showing the keypad programming mode menu
structure is located in Figure 6.
The transceiver may also be programmed to display
the alias of the channel on which the call is being
received (if it is not the same as the selected
channel) and/or the ID of the mobile placing the
call.
When the keypad programming mode is selected
by the Keypad Programming option key or menu
parameter, the first menu parameter “CHNG ZONE”
is displayed as just described. Press the Up/Down
switch to scroll through the available parameters
which are listed below.
5. To respond, select the Unit Call mode by pressing
the Unit Call option key or selecting the menu
parameter. The following operation then occurs:
•
If a unit call has been programmed with the ID of
the calling mobile, it is automatically selected. A
response can then be made without changing the
selected channel.
•
If no Unit Call has been programmed with the ID
of the calling mobile, a response may have to be
made in the standard mode.

dispatcher. Up to eight status conditions can be preprogrammed, and they are identified by an alias. If the
Status option key or menu parameter is programmed,
status conditions are sent as follows:
2. When the emergency alarm is acknowledged, the
emergency acknowledge tone (two beeps) sounds.
Silent operation may also be programmed in which
case no tone sounds and there is no indication that
an acknowledgment occurred.
1. Momentarily press the Status option key or select
that menu parameter. The alias of the current status
condition is displayed.
3. The radio continues to transmit this message until an
acknowledgment is received or the programmed
number of attempts have been made. To exit this
mode, power must be turned off.
2. To change the current status, press the Up/Down
switch until the desired status is displayed. Then
press the F2 (Select) key to accept that status.
Emergency Calls
3. You can wait to send the current status until polled
by the dispatcher or it can be sent immediately by
briefly pressing the PTT switch. One of the
following events then occurs:
•
An emergency call urgently requests access to a
voice channel. To place this call, proceed as follows:
1. Select a SMARTNET/SmartZone channel that has
this feature enabled and press the Emergency option
key. The emergency mode is indicated when
If five beeps sound, the status was received and
acknowledged by the dispatcher

SMARTNET/SMARTZONE FEATURES
SMARTNET/SmartZone lists are also user
programmable if the Scan Edit option key is
programmed. In addition, nuisance channels can be
temporarily deleted (see page 13).
“EMERGNCY” is indicated in the display for 3
seconds.
2. To place the emergency call, manually press the
PTT switch and begin speaking as with a standard
call. All group calls which follow are then emergency calls (private, telephone, and call alert calls
are not allowed). If the channel is changed, the call
is made on the emergency talk group programmed
for the new channel.
Scanning is enabled and disabled by the Scan
option key or menu parameter. Also, channels can be
programmed so that scanning is automatically disabled
or automatically starts whenever the channel is
selected. If scanning is enabled and the selected channel
does not permit scanning, it automatically resumes
when a channel is selected that permits scanning.
3. To exit this mode, power must be turned off.
Failsoft Operation
In addition to calls on channels in the scan list,
pages, private calls, and telephone calls are received
while scanning. Priority talk groups can be designated,
and messages on those talk groups are received while
listening to lower priority messages. However, private
and telephone calls are not interrupted by priority
messages.
If a failure occurs in the SMARTNET/SmartZone system so that it cannot be used, the transceiver
automatically enters the failsoft mode. When in this
mode, “FAILSOFT” and the alias of the selected
channel are alternately displayed.
When responding to calls in the scan mode,
programming determines if the response always
occurs on the talk group of the call or the Selected
Group if they are different. Transmissions at other
times always occur on the selected talk group.
When in the failsoft mode, operation is in the
conventional mode on the preprogrammed failsoft
channel (a different failsoft channel can be
programmed on each talk group). If a transmission is
attempted before a failsoft channel is located, a continuous tones sounds until the PTT switch is released.
When the radio system returns to normal operation,
this is automatically detected and normal operation
resumes.
Dynamic Regrouping
SMARTNET/SmartZone Scanning
The dynamic regrouping feature allows a
dispatcher to switch mobiles to a predefined
regrouping channel to receive an important message.
Dynamic regrouping operates as follows:
Scanning on a SMARTNET/Smartzone system is
called Priority Monitor Scan, and is similar to the standard scanning described starting on page 13. Each
SMARTNET/SmartZone system can be programmed
with up to as many scan lists as can be stored in
memory, and each list can include up to 16 channels
from the same SMARTNET/SmartZone system, one
of which can be a priority channel. The priority
channel can also be the selected channel.
1. When this command is received, alternating tones
sound for 5 seconds and the transceiver automatically changes to the regrouping channel and the
display indicates the alias of the channel.
2. Manually select the channel corresponding to that
alias. If this is not done, transmission still occurs on
the new channel, but the alternating tones sound
each time the PTT switch is pressed.
One of these lists can then be selected by each
SMARTNET channel. In addition, if the Scan (List)
Select option key or menu parameter is programmed,
the scan list selected by all talk groups in the current
system can be temporarily changed. The procedure is
described on page 15. The default scan list for all
groups is reselected on power-up.
3. Talk and listen as usual. The dispatcher will cancel
dynamic regrouping. If a standard channel is not
selected after this occurs, an error tone periodically
sounds.

SmartZone Features
Determining Current Site and Searching For New
Site
Introduction
To display the relative signal level of the current
site, press the Site Search option key or select that
menu parameter. The display then alternately indicates the current site number as “SITE xx” and the
signal level as “RSSI xx”. To exit the site search
mode, press the Site Search option key again or the F1
(Exit) key.
As described on page 10, the SmartZone mode
provides wide area coverage by allowing roaming
between SMARTNET and conventional sites. SmartZone operation is the same as SMARTNET with the
following additional features:
Busy Override
To scroll through the other programmed sites,
press the Up/Down switch while “SITE xx” or “RSSI
xx” is displayed. To select the displayed site, press the
Site Search option key or the F2 (Select) key. If site
lock is on when site search is entered (see following),
the radio will be locked on the new site when this
function is exited.
The busy override feature allows a call to be
placed even if not all sites you are calling have a free
traffic channel. The only sites guaranteed to be
included are the Critical Sites and the sites where a
Critical User is located. This feature is enabled and
disabled by the system manager, and it operates as
follows:
Locking/Unlocking a Site
1. Assume that you have attempted to place a call and
the system was busy (“BUSY” displayed and busy
tone sounded).
It is sometimes desirable to stay on a site. To
prevent the transceiver from searching for a new site,
lock it on the current site by pressing the Site Lock
option key or selecting that menu parameter. The
display then momentarily indicates “LOCK x” to indicate that the current site is locked (“x” is the current
site number). To unlock the site, press the Site Lock
key again or the F2 (Exit) key and “UNLOCK” is
momentarily displayed.
2. Release the PTT switch and then press it for 5
seconds or more. If a chirp tone sounds with the PTT
switch pressed, busy override is occurring.
NOTE: Remember that not all members of the talk
group are receiving your message. Missing
members will start receiving your message as
channels become available.
