Additional Performance Enhancement
Getting Started
The following are some of the latest creations designed to
enhance the security, quality and efficiency of APX radios.
Dynamic System Resilience (DSR)
DSR ensures the radio system is seamlessly switched to a
backup master site dynamically in case of system failure.
DSR also provides additional indication e.g. failure detection,
fault recovery, and redundancy within the system to address to
the user in need. Mechanisms related to the Integrated Voice
and Data (IV & D) or data centric are all supported by DSR.
2
English
CrossTalk Prevention
This feature prevents crosstalk scenario from happening,
especially when a wideband antenna is used. This feature
allows the adjustment of the Trident Transmitting SSI clock rate
in the radio to be varied from the Receiving Frequency. This
subsequently reduced the possibilities of radio frequency
interfering spurs and prevents the issues of crosstalk.
Encrypted Integrated Data (EID)
EID provides security encryption and authentication of IV & D
data bearer service communication between the radio and the
Customer Enterprise Network.
SecureNet
SecureNet allows user to perform secured communications on
an Analog or Motorola Data Communication (MDC) channel.
The MDC OTAR feature will allow users to perform OTAR
activities on an MDC channel.

Automatic Registration Service (ARS)
This feature provides an automated data application registration
for the radio. When you turn on the radio, the device
automatically registers with the server.
This feature allows you as the user to be associated with the
radio. With this association, every data application (Example:
Text Messaging Service) takes on a friendly username.
Data applications within the fixed network can determine the
presence of a device on the system and send data to the
device. For example: Text Messaging Service (TMS).
You can still send text messages without logging in as a user.
The user login feature only enables the recipient of your
message to identify you as the sender by assigning a username
to your message.
The Automatic Registration Service for the radio consists of
two (2) modes:

This feature uses information from the Global Positioning
System (GPS) satellites orbiting the Earth to determine the
approximate geographical location of your radio, expressed as
latitude and longitude. The availability and accuracy of this
location information (and the amount of time that it takes to
calculate it) varies depending on the environment in which you
are using the GPS feature.
For example, GPS location fixes are very difficult to obtain
indoors, in covered locations, between high buildings, or in
situations where you have not established a clear broad view of
the sky.
Understanding the GPS Feature
The GPS technology uses radio signals from earth orbiting
satellites, to establish the location coordinates, maximizing your
view of clear unobstructed sky is essential for optimum
performance.
Where adequate signals from multiple satellites are not
available (usually because you cannot establish a view of a
wide area of the sky), the GPS feature of your radio will not
work. Such situations include but are not limited to:
• In underground locations
• Inside of buildings, trains, or other covered vehicles
O9Head_68007024014_a.book Page 83 Wednesday, June 9, 2010 5:36 PM
Enhancing GPS Performance
• Between tall buildings or under dense tree-cover
Sometimes, the GPS feature may be unable to complete a
location calculation successfully. You then see a message
indicating that your radio cannot connect to enough visible
satellites.
• In temperature extremes outside the operating limits of your
radio
Even where location information can be calculated in such
situations, it may take longer to do so, and your location
estimate may not be as accurate. Therefore, in any emergency
situation, always report your location to your dispatcher.
Note:
Even where adequate signals from multiple satellites
are available, your GPS feature only provides an
approximate location, usually within 20 meters from
your actual location, but sometimes further away.
Keep in mind that the accuracy of the location information and
the time it takes to obtain it varies depending upon
circumstances, particularly the ability to receive signals from an
adequate number of satellites.
Note:
The satellites used by the GPS feature are controlled
by the U.S. government and are subject to changes
implemented in accordance with the Department of
Defense GPS user policy and the Federal Radio
Navigation Plan. These changes may affect the
performance of the GPS feature on your radio.
To maximize the ability of your radio to determine a fix, please
note the following guidelines:
• For your initial fix, hold the radio in the face position.
• Stay in the open. The GPS feature works best where there is
nothing between your radio and a large amount of open sky.
Using the Outdoor Location Feature (Using GPS)
Advanced Features
• Under any other metal or concrete roof or structure
This feature allows you to determine your current location using
a location menu, as well as your current distance and bearing in

SmartZone automatically switches the radio to a different site
when the current site signal becomes unacceptable. This
usually happens when the vehicle in which the radio is located
is driven out of the range of one site, and into the range of
another.
Under normal conditions, a SmartZone-enabled radio functions
invisibly to the operator. However, the operator does have some
manual controls on the Control Head – the RSSI menu entry.
This button can be used to check, or change, the SmartZone
operation.

Initiating an Announcement
The announcement capability allows you to make
announcements to the entire user group, as well as monitor
talkgroup calls and other announcements.
If your radio has been programmed to allow announcement
calls:
Announcement calls are handled in two different ways,
depending on the trunked central controller configuration. The
two types are called ruthless and non-ruthless preemption.
• Ruthless Preemption:
When a ruthless preemption announcement call is initiated,
the requesting radio begins transmitting immediately. All
associated talkgroup calls taking place on other channels are
immediately halted, and the radios are steered to the
announcement call.
Procedure:
1 Press the Mode Knob to locate the announcement-group
mode.
2 Press the microphone PTT button to initiate the
announcement.
Advanced Features
Using the Trunked Announcement
Transmitting radios continue to transmit until the PTT button
is released, at which time they also unmute for the
announcement call. Individual calls (Private Conversation and
telephone interconnect) are not affected.
• Non-Ruthless Preemption:
When a non-ruthless preemption announcement is initiated,
the initiating unit receives a telephone-type busy tone,
followed by a call back when all associated talkgroup
conversations end.
Once an announcement call is pending, any attempts by
other users to initiate a talkgroup call will result in a
telephone-type busy tone. These users will not receive a call
back until the announcement call is complete.
