M axTrac 300 TM , 900M Hz Features
The M axTrac 300 900M Hz radios have incorporated a few minor changes from
the existing (non-900M Hz) conventional M axTrac 300 models. These changes are
described below:
The front panel of the 900M Hz M axTrac 300 6-channel model with the selective
signalling option differs from the corresponding non-9 0 0 M H z M axTrac 3 0 0
6-channel model as follows:
•
a Call button replaces the Exit button
•
an H / L button replaces the Select button
The front panel of the 900M Hz M axTrac 300 16-channel model is the same as
the corresponding non-900M Hz M axTrac 300 16-channel model.

On 900M Hz M axTrac 300 6-channel models with the selective signalling option,
to send a selective call encode, a Call Alert™ encode, or a radio check, the Call
button is pressed once, twice, or three times, respectively. (Identical to the way
the Select button is used on the other models. ) The H / L button is pressed once
to enable the external alarm (horn/lights) feature; pressing the H / L button again
(or pressing the Call button) will turn the external alarm feature off. (On other
models, the Select button is used to enable this feature; the Select and/or Exit
button is used to turn it off. )

900M Hz models, only, the emergency encode feature can now be cancelled by
any button press or by taking the microphone off-hook. (On other non-900M Hz
m odels, the m icrophone PTT m ust be pressed to clear the em ergency. ) After
exiting a Call Alert decode state by pressing any button, PTT, or by taking the
m icrophone off-hook, 900M H z m odels w ill return to the “H L” (external alarm
armed) state if this was enabled before the call. (Non-900M Hz models always
return to dispatch operation after the Call Alert decode is cleared. )
A ll other radio operations are identical for corresponding 9 0 0 M H z and non900M Hz models, as described in the operating instructions.

Signalling Types
There are three signalling packages that are available for conventional M axTrac
radios. They are M DC-1200 TM , Quik-Call II TM , and DTM F decode. These signalling
packages include features such as Call Alert TM with external alarm capability. DTM F
decode must be ordered as an option on all models; M DC-1200 and Quik-Call II
signalling packages are optional on all models except for 32-channel models. The
3 2 -ch annel m odels sh ip standard from th e factory w ith Q uik-C all II signalling
enabled. On signalling-equipped models, the radio service software (RSS) can be
used to enable and disable different features. Contact your M otorola representative
or contact your local M otorola service center for additional information.

Turning the Radio On
To turn the radio on, rotate the On / Off Volume knob clockwise until it clicks. A
short chirp tone will be heard if the radio passes the radio self-check test. The
last channel used before the radio was turned off will be displayed. The radio is
now in standby mode and ready to receive or transmit.
Note: The radio should be turned off whenever the engine is off to avoid draining
the vehicle battery.
Radio Self-Check
Every time the radio is turned on (power-up), it performs a functional self-check
and, if necessary, will sound a 5-second warning tone instead of the short chirp
tone normally heard at power-up. This is an indication that the radio is no longer
operating at the exact param eters set in the factor y or field and should be
serviced immediately.

Low–Band Extender Feature
L ow -band radios include an extender circuit, w hose function is to blank out
interfering noise pulses commonly found in the low-band frequency range. This is
also known as a “Noise Blanker. ” The extender is always enabled when the radio is
turned on. It can be disabled with an extended hold (four seconds, three chirps) of
the monitor button. On a M axTrac 300 radio the display will indicate the extender
is disabled with a dash (— ). To enable the extender function again, press the
monitor button as before (four seconds, three chirps).
Standard Transmit Operation

D o not transm it if anyone else is using the channel. The busy L ED ( B sy on
M axTrac 100 radio or Tx / Bsy on M axTrac 300 radio) will flash if there is another
carrier on the channel. If the channel is clear, press the PTT (push-to-talk) button
on the side of the microphone. On the M axTrac 100 radio, the channel indicator
LED (F 1 or F 2) will turn red to indicate that you are “on the air. ” On the M axTrac
300 radio, the transmit LED (Tx / Bsy) will light steadily to indicate that you are “on
the air. ”
Hold the microphone about 2 inches from your mouth and speak at a normal
voice level. DO NOT SHOUT. It will not make your transmission clearer.
Time-Out Timer Feature
All models have a time-out timer (TOT) that will terminate your transmission if you
hold the PTT button down for 30 seconds (default setting). To warn the user, an

Signalling Operation
N o t e : S ignalling and C hannel S can™ are com patible. H ow ever, during scan
operation, a selective call on a particular channel could be missed since the radio
may not be checking that channel when the selective call is sent.
It is recommended that priority scan is selected and the signalling channel be
designated a priority channel to improve the likelihood that the selective call will be

Channel Scan T M Feature (M axTrac 300 16-/32-Channel Radios Only)
Description
If your radio is the M axTrac 300 16-channel or 32-channel m odel, it includes
Channel Scan monitoring. The radio may come with pre-programmed scan lists
dedicated to every active channel (channel-slaved). The user selects a particular
channel and turns on scan, choosing either “scan” or “priority scan. ”
The radio user can also program one unique user -programmable scan list from
the front panel of the radio, which is retained in memory until changed or deleted
by the user. To access this list, choose either “user scan” or “priority user scan. ”
Both types of scan operate in either non-priority or priority modes. Non-priority
scan means that every channel on the scan list is monitored equally. However,
with priority scan, certain channels have “priority” over others and are checked
more frequently. If you are scanning with priority, the radio will continually check
for activity on your priority channels, even when you are listening to a message on
anoth er ch annel, and there m ay be shor t gaps in the audio. The radio w ill
continue to check priority one even while receiving a call on priority two.
W ith pre-programmed scan, the channel you have selected is always the priority
one channel. The priority two channel is pre-programmed and is the same for
e v e r y s c a n lis t. W ith u s e r - p ro g ra m m a b le s c a n , th e p rio rity c h a n n e ls a re

Pre–Programmed Scan
Each active channel in the radio can have a pre-programmed scan list dedicated to it.
Through the use of radio service software (RSS) and a computer at a service location,
any combination of sequential frequencies may be programmed into each active list.
Priority one is always assigned to the selected channel. Priority two can be designated
by the servicer or deleted altogether. However, the radio can only have one designated
priority–two channel. Therefore, priority two must be the same channel in each scan
list. For example, if channel three has been programmed as the second priority in a
scan list, channel three will be the second priority channel in the remaining active scan
lists.
The M axTrac 300 16-channel and 32-channel radio scans at a rate of approximately
250 milliseconds per channel. Therefore, scanning more than eight frequencies is not
recommended.
User–Programmable Scan
A single user-scan list (one per radio) can be programmed from the front panel by the
operator and will be retained in memory until changed or deleted. This is separate
from the scan lists pre-programmed to each active channel.
To create or modify the user-scan list, hold the Scan button down for 2 seconds until
you hear a second chirp tone. The channel num ber will flash. Add or delete this
channel from the list by pressing the Select button.

displayed channel is designated as the priority one channel. Repeat the process to
select a priority two channel, if desired, which will be indicated by a steady light on the

It’s important to note that the priority–one channel is programmed first followed by the
priority–two channel. To set different priorities, deleting either one will delete both
priority channels at the same time. Then, reset priority channels as described above.

Talk–Back Scan
In addition to changing pre-program m ed (channel-slaved) scan lists and the
second priority channel, the radio ser vice softw are (R S S ) also provides the
capability for “talk-back” scan. If this feature is enabled, the radio will remain on
the active channel when the microphone is taken off-hook instead of returning to
the selected (home) channel. This allows the user to respond or “talk-back, ” to a
transmission received on a scanned channel.
Nuisance–Channel Delete Feature
Each of the M axTrac 300 16-channel and 32-channel radio scan types have the
nuisance-channel delete feature. If a channel in a scan sequence is at times in
heavy use by another operator causing the radio to be continually monitoring that
channel, you may wish to temporarily eliminate that channel from the scan list
without reprogramming the radio. W hen receiving a transmission on that channel,
simply hold down the Select button for 2 seconds and the nuisance channel will
be temporarily deleted until that scan mode is changed or exited. Priority channels
and the home channel cannot be deleted.
Scan Rates
The radio service software (RSS) also provides the ability to change the frequency
with which a priority channel is checked. W hen the Channel Scan is stopped on a
non-priority channel, it periodically “checks” the priority channel for activity. The
rate at w h ich th is o ccu rs is th e p rio rity s am p le rate. T h er e are tw o rates
available: fast is 0. 5 seconds and slow is 1. 5 seconds. Although the fast rate
provides m ore assurance th at a m essage w on’t be m issed, it is, in effect,
interrupting the current reception more often. Therefore, the radio is normally
programmed for slow.

Installation Safety Warnings
Consider the occupants’ safety when you choose a location for the radio. Do not
mount the radio overhead or on a sidewall unless you take special precautions.
If someone were to remove the radio and fail to replace it properly, road shock
could bump the radio loose, and the falling radio could, in some circumstances,
cause serious injury to the driver or a passenger. In a crash, even when properly
installed, the radio could break loose and become a dangerous projectile.
If yo u m u s t m o u n t th e ra d io o ve r h e a d o r o n a s id e w a ll, g ive it th e a d d e d
protection of a retaining strap.
CAUTIO N : Installation of antennas with mobile radio equipment with transmitter
power in excess of 7 watts.
Note: For low-power M axTrac radios (7 watts or less), there are no antenna type
or installation restrictions.
Non-M etallic-Body Vehicles — In non-metallic-body vehicles with transmitters at
any frequency having a power output in excess of 7 watts, do not install any type
of antenna closer than 2 feet from any occupant of the vehicle. Failure to follow
this procedure m ay result in the exposure of the vehicle occupants to radio
frequency energy levels higher than recommended by the FCC.
M etal-Body Vehicles — In metal-body vehicles with transmitters at any frequency
having a power output in excess of 7 watts, it is mandatory, when using a glassm ount antenna, that the installation instructions covering the location of the
antenna at the top of the front or rear window and the cable routing be followed
exactly as described. Failure to follow this procedure may result in the exposure of
the vehicle occupants to radio frequency energy exposure levels higher than
recommended by the FCC.
For other antenna types, follow the existing installation instructions. The best
location for the antenna is at the center of the vehicle roof. A good alternate
location is at the center of the trunk lid.

Testing and M aintenance
Yo u r M a x Tra c ra d io is c o m p le te ly a d ju s te d , te s te d , a n d in s p e c te d b e fo re
shipment. However, FCC regulations state that a station license must be obtained
for each radio installation (radio or base) by the owner of the equipment. The
station licensee is responsible for ensuring the transmitter power, frequency, and
deviation are within the limits permitted under the station license.
No technician’s license is required for installing and maintaining radio equipment.
However, the frequency and deviation of the transm itter m ust be checked on
installation and at least once yearly.
Power Protection Circuitry
The radio you are installing has been tested for proper transmitter power output
before leaving the factory. Each radio is set to the proper output power level while
connected to an accurate 50-ohm load im pedance. Once the power level has
been set, the internal power control/protection circuitry will reduce the power
output whenever it senses a load impedance significantly different from 50 ohms.
This protection circuitry significantly enhances the radio’s reliability with minimal
performance degradation.
If you check transmitter output power levels during installation, be sure you are
using a good 50-ohm load, with a m inim um of adapters and using short test
cables. Any load variation from 50 ohms may cause an apparent reduction in
output power due to the norm al operation of the control/protection circuitry.
These variations in power with other than 50-ohm load impedance will be most
p ro n o u n c e d in th e 8 0 0 M H z a n d 9 0 0 M H z b a n d s s in c e c a b le s , m e te rs ,
connectors, etc. have larger effects in those bands. However, the factors are still
significant at UHF and VHF and considerable care should be exercised at these
frequencies. If output power seem s to be unusually low (greater than can be
explained by the normal calibration differences you experience), check your test
setup. If output power goes up as you improve the quality of the load impedance
(be sure to de-key w hen m aking any changes in load), the control/protection
circuitry is performing normally.
Typical mismatches in the load impedance (greater than 1. 2: 1 VSW R [voltage
standing-wave ratio]) may result in a 10-20% variation in the actual measured
power output. W ithin these limits, the radio operates normally, and you should not
attempt to service it.

Installation Planning - M obile Radios
Planning is the key to fast, easy radio installation. Before a hole is drilled or a wire
is run, inspect the vehicle and determine how and where you intend to mount the
antenna, radio, and accessories. Plan wire and cable runs to provide maximum
protection from pinching, crushing, and overheating.
Installation Planning - Base Control Stations
The base/control station option provides the radio with a desk microphone and
power supply for use at a fixed location. All operations are the same as the radio,
except for the desk microphone.
Choose a location for your base/control station as close as possible to where the
antenna cable enters the building. Be sure 117Vac, 60Hz power is available.
M ake sure sufficient air can flow around the radio to permit adequate cooling.
Recommended Tools for Installation
The following tools are recommended for proper installation of your new radio.
•
Portable Drill
•
Hammer
•
Center Punch
•
5/16" Hex-Nut Driver

Antenna M ounting
The best m ounting location for the antenna is in the center of a large, flat
conductive surface. In almost all vehicles, these requirements are best satisfied
by mounting the antenna at the center of the roof. Some vehicles have a large
trunk lid that provides a good antenna location. If the trunk lid is used, connect
grounding straps between the trunk lid and vehicle chassis to insure the trunk lid
is at chassis ground. See the instruction manual supplied with the antenna for
complete installation information.

penetrate the supporting metal frame of the dashboard.
Floor M ount
A floor-mount wedge is available which allows the radio to be tilted at either 45 or
60 degrees. The sleeve-m ounting hardware, which is standard with low-band,
35-watt 800M Hz, and 30–watt 900M Hz models, mates with this wedge. If the
wedge is to be used with other models, the sleeve must be ordered separately.
Ext ra-Stability M ounting Tray
The optional extra-stability m ounting tray is used in conjunction w ith the nonlocking trunnion. If the radio is mounted on a rounded surface, you may need to
supply and install shim w ashers (not provided) betw een the bracket and the
mounting surface. Shims are necessary to tilt the radio because the heavy-duty
bracket blocks the standard trunnion adjustments. Follow instructions provided
with the option.
N ote: The extra-stability mounting tray is not necessary for low-band, 35–watt
800M Hz, or 30–watt 900M Hz models as the sleeve mounting already provides
maximum stability.
Locking Trunnion
The optional locking trunnion consists of a tw o-piece, trunnion-type m ounting
bracket equipped with a key lock and associated mounting screws and is designed
to facilitate easy removal. The locking trunnion may be mounted on either metal or
plastic surfaces, provided the mounting surface adequately supports the weight of
the radio. Follow instructions provided with the option.
Before attempting to install the locking trunnion, examine the vehicle for suitable
m o un tin g lo catio n s . T h is bracket req u ires a flat m o u n tin g s u r face, 8 " x 2 "
minimum with adequate clearance for inserting the radio. The chosen location
should be convenient to the vehicle operator and provide access to the power and
the antenna connectors. Be careful to choose a location that permits the locking
trunnion to be rem oved from the m ounting bracket. Vehicle operation should
never be impaired by the location of the trunnion or radio.
Note: Overhead mounting is not recommended.

Begin Installation
DC Power Cable Installation
This M axTrac radio must be operated only in negative-ground electrical systems.
Reverse polarity does not damage the radio; however, radio protection circuits
cause the cable fuse to open. Check the vehicle ground polarity before you begin
installation to prevent wasted time and effort.
The 10-foot dc power cable shipped with the radio is long enough for installation
in most vehicles. Begin the power cable installation in the following manner:
(1) Determine a routing plan for the power cable with reference to where the
radio is to be mounted.
(2) Locate an existing hole with a grommet in the vehicle fire wall, or drill a 3/8"
access hole at the location for passing the pow er cable into the engine
compartment. Install a grommet with 1/4" internal diameter in the access
hole to avoid damage to the cable.
CAUTIO N : A high degree of care should be exercised not to damage any
existing vehicle wires.
(3) From inside the vehicle, feed the red and black leads (without lugs attached)
through the access hole and into the engine compartment. See Figure 1.

(4) L ocate the nearest available vehicle chassis-ground m ounting point and
shorten the black led to remove excess cable length.
(5) Install ring lugs (supplied) onto the stripped end of the power cable black
lead. Also install a ring lug onto the stripped end of the red lead on the fuse
holder as shown in Figure 2.
(6) Locate the fuse holder as close to the battery as possible and away from any
hot-engine component. M ount the fuse holder using the provided mounting
hole and dress wires as necessary. Connect the fuse holder red-adapter-lead
plug to the mating receptacle on the red lead of the power cable as shown in
Figure 2.

(8) Connect the power cable red lead from the fuse holder to the positive (+)
battery term inal. M ake sure the adapter cable is connected to the m ain
power cable red lead.
Note: Failure to mount the red lead of the power cable kit directly to the
battery m ay result in severe alternator-whine interference and cause the
radio to revert to mode one each time the power is turned off.
