Handling Precautions
• If the radio has been submersed in water, shake the radio
well to remove any water that may be trapped inside the
speaker grille and microphone port. Trapped water could
cause decreased audio performance.
• If the radio’s battery contact area has been exposed to water,
clean and dry battery contacts on both the radio and the
battery before attaching the battery to the radio. The residual
water could short-circuit the radio.
• If the radio has been submersed in a corrosive substance
(e.g. saltwater), rinse the radio and battery in fresh water then
dry the radio and battery.
• To clean the exterior surfaces of the radio, use a diluted
solution of mild dishwashing detergent and fresh water (i.e.
one teaspoon of detergent to one gallon of water).
the battery contact. This vent allows for pressure equalization
in the radio. Doing so may create a leak path into the radio
and the radio’s submersibility may be lost.
• Never obstruct or cover the vent, even with a label.
• Ensure that no oily substances come in contact with the vent.
• The radio with antenna attached properly is designed to be
submersible to a maximum depth of 1 meter (3.28 feet) and a
maximum submersion time of 30 minutes. Exceeding either
maximum limit or use without antenna may result in damage
to the radio.
• When cleaning the radio, do not use a high pressure jet spray
on the radio as this will exceed the 1 meter depth pressure
and may cause water to leak into the radio.
!
Caution
Handling Precautions
The MOTOTRBO Series Digital Portable radio meets IP57
specifications, allowing the radio to withstand adverse field
conditions such as being submersed in water.
• Never poke the vent (hole) located on the radio chassis below
Do not disassemble the radio. This could
damage radio seals and result in leak paths into
the radio. Radio maintenance should only be
done in service depot that is equipped to test
and replace the seal on the radio.

types of calls: Group Call, Private Call, All Call, PC Call or
Dispatch Call.
Advanced Features
PC Call and Dispatch Call are data-related. They are only
available with the applications. Refer to the data applications
documentation for more information.

Privacy
If enabled, this feature helps to prevent eavesdropping by
unauthorized users on a channel by the use of a softwarebased scrambling solution. The signaling and user identification
portions of a transmission are not scrambled.
The LED lights up solid green while the radio is transmitting and
blinks green rapidly when the radio is receiving an ongoing
privacy-enabled transmission.
NOTE: Some radio models may not offer this Privacy feature.
Check with your dealer or system administrator for
more information.
Your radio must have privacy enabled on the channel to send a
privacy-enabled transmission, although this is not a necessary
requirement for receiving a transmission. While on a privacyenabled channel, the radio is still able to receive clear
(unscrambled) transmissions.
Procedure:
Press the programmed Privacy button to toggle privacy on or
off.

all (Enhanced Privacy).

Dual Tone Multi Frequency (DTMF)
IP Site Connect
The Dual Tone Multi Frequency (DTMF) feature allows the radio
to operate in a radio system with an interface to telephone
systems.
This feature allows your radio to extend communication beyond
the reach of a single site, by connecting to different available
sites via an Internet Protocol (IP) network.
Procedure:
NOTE: This feature is not applicable in Capacity Plus.
To initiate a DTMF call.
When the radio moves out of range from one site and into the
range of another, it connects to the new site's base station to
send or receive calls/data transmissions. Depending on your
settings, this is done automatically or manually.
1 Press and hold the PTT button.
2 Enter the desired number, * or #.
You can turn off the DTMF tone by disabling all radio tones and
alerts (see Turning the Radio Tones/Alerts On or Off on
page 92).
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 base station 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.
NOTE: Each channel can only have either Scan or Roam
enabled, not both at the same time.
Channels with this feature enabled can be added to a particular
roam list. The radio searches the channel(s) in the Members list
during the automatic roam operation to locate the best site.
80
English
A Members list supports a maximum of 16 channels (including
the Selected Channel).
NOTE: You cannot manually add or delete an entry to the
Members list. Check with your dealer or system
administrator for more information.
Starting an Automatic Site Search
NOTE: The radio only scans for a new site if the current signal
is weak or when the radio is unable to detect any signal
from the current site. If the RSSI value is strong, the
radio remains on the current site.
Procedure:
Press the programmed Site Lock On/Off button.
1 A tone sounds and the display shows Site Unlocked.
2 The LED blinks yellow rapidly when the radio is actively
searching for a new site, and turns off once the radio locks
on to a site.
3 The display shows the Site Roaming icon and channel alias.

unlocked) during a PTT button press or data transmission if
the current channel, an IP Site Select channel with an
attached roam list, is out of range.
