transceiver will continue scanning after an adjustable time delay, if the PTT
switch is released, and no further signal is received.
When the displayed group is not locked out of the scanning sequence, the add
indicator ( ) will appear on the display.
■ Priority Scan
The priority channel must be programmed in order for Priority Scan to
function.
The transceiver will automatically change to the priority channel when a signal
is received on it, even if a signal is being received on a normal channel.
The
indicator appears when the displayed channel is the priority channel.
2-TONE SIGNALLING
2-Tone Signalling is either activated or deactivated by your dealer.
2-Tone Signalling only opens the squelch when the transceiver receives two
tones corresponding to those set up in the transceiver. When the squelch opens,
you will be able to hear the caller without any further action.
After a correct 2-Tone signal is received and the squelch opens, pressing the key
programmed as Monitor will cancel the connection.
If your dealer programmed Transpond for 2-Tone Signalling, your transceiver will
automatically send an acknowledgment signal to the station that called you with
a correct 2-Tone signal. Transpond does not function when you are called as a
Group call.
If your dealer programmed Tone Alert for 2-Tone Signalling, your transceiver will
emit a beep when the correct 2-Tone signal is received.
Note: This transceiver is only capable of decoding 2-Tone Signals. It cannot encode a 2-Tone
Signal.

DTMF (DUAL TONE MULTI FREQUENCY) CALLS
MAKING A DTMF CALL
Note: To make a DTMF call, you must have an optional microphone with a DTMF keypad. Ask your
dealer for more information.
There are two methods of making a DTMF call:
•
Manual dialing
•
Store and sending
To make a call by dialing manually:
1 Press and hold the PTT switch.
2 Enter the desired digits using the microphone keypad.
• The corresponding DTMF tones sound each time you press a key.
• If you release the PTT switch, transmit mode will end even if the complete number
has not been sent.
• If your dealer has activated the Keypad Auto PTT function, you need not hold down
the PTT switch while pressing the keys on the keypad. The DTMF code will be
sent automatically when you press a key.
To make a call by storing and sending:
1 Enter the desired digits using the microphone keypad.
• The digits appear on the display as you enter them.
2 After entering the complete number, press the PTT switch.
• If you are using the transceiver in a Conventional mode and Format, the DTMF
code is transmitted after pressing the PTT switch.
• If you are using the transceiver in a Trunking system, the DTMF code is transmitted
after a connection is established. Releasing the PTT switch before a connection is
established will stop the transmission from occuring.
• If you are using the transceiver in a RIC (Repeater Inter-Connect) Trunking system,
the DTMF code is transmitted after a connection with the telephone system is
established. If you press the key programmed as Auto Tel instead of the PTT
switch, the call will automatically connect to the repeater, and the DTMF code will
be transmitted.
Note:
◆ Store and send must first be activated by your dealer in order for it to function.
◆ You can only store up to 16 digits before sending. Entering more than 16 digits will cause an
error tone to sound.
◆ In store and sending mode, if you switch the power OFF before sending the number, the number
will be cleared from memory.
18
DTMF SIGNALLING
Your dealer can program a group or channel with DTMF signalling. When you
receive a call with a code that matches yours, the signalling indicator ( ) will
flash and a tone will sound. Squelch opens and you will hear the call.
Squelch will close when you receive a call with a code that matches your
signalling reset code.
When making a call on a group or channel programmed with a DTMF signalling
code, the signalling indicator will light and the squelch will open.
If your dealer programmed Transpond for DTMF signalling, your transceiver will
automatically send an acknowledgment signal to the station that called you with
the correct DTMF code.
DBD (DEAD BEAT DISABLE)
Depending on how your dealer programs your transceiver, when you receive a
call containing a DBD code, either transmit mode or receive and transmit modes
will be disabled. When a DBD code is received, a tone will sound.
DBD is cancelled when you receive a call with a DBD cancel code.

NOTICES TO THE USER
◆ GOVERNMENT LAW PROHIBITS THE OPERATION OF UNLICENSED RADIO
TRANSMITTERS WITHIN THE TERRITORIES UNDER GOVERNMENT CONTROL.
◆ ILLEGAL OPERATION IS PUNISHABLE BY FINE OR IMPRISONMENT OR BOTH.
◆ REFER SERVICE TO QUALIFIED TECHNICIANS ONLY.
SAFETY: It is important that the operator is aware of, and understands, hazards
common to the operation of any transceiver.
◆ EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES (GASES, DUST, FUMES, etc.)
Turn OFF your transceiver while taking on fuel or while parked in gasoline service stations. Do
not carry spare fuel containers in the trunk of your vehicle if your transceiver is mounted in the
trunk area.
◆ INJURY FROM RADIO FREQUENCY TRANSMISSIONS
Do not operate your transceiver when somebody is either touching the antenna or standing within
two to three feet of it, to avoid the possibility of radio frequency burns or related physical injury.
◆ DYNAMITE BLASTING CAPS
Operating the transceiver within 500 feet of dynamite blasting caps may cause them to explode.
Turn OFF your transceiver when in an area where blasting is in progress, or where “TURN OFF
TWO-WAY RADIO” signs have been posted. If you are transporting blasting caps in your vehicle,
make sure they are carried in a closed metal box with a padded interior. Do not transmit while the
caps are being placed into or removed from the container.
