PRODUCT SAFETY AND RF
EXPOSURE COMPLIANCE
!
Caution
Before using this radio, read the
operating instructions for safe
usage contained in the Product
Safety and RF Exposure booklet
enclosed with your radio.
This radio is restricted to occupational use
only to satisfy FCC RF energy exposure
requirements. Before using this product, read
the RF energy awareness information and
operating instructions in the Product Safety
and RF Exposure booklet enclosed with your
radio (Motorola Publication part number
68P81095C98) to ensure compliance with RF
energy exposure limits.
For a list of Motorola-approved antennas,
batteries, and other accessories, visit the
following web site which lists approved
accessories: http://www.motorola.com/cgiss/
index.shtml.
SAFETY
ATTENTION!
This product is powered by a nickel-cadmium
(NICd), nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH), or lithiumion rechargeable battery. Charge the battery
before use to ensure optimum capacity and
performance. The battery was designed
specifically to be used with a Motorola charger.
Charging in non-Motorola equipment may lead
to battery damage and void the battery
warranty.
Note: When charging a battery attached to a
radio, turn the radio off to ensure a full
charge.
The battery should be at about 77°F (25°C)
(room temperature), whenever possible.
Charging a cold battery (below 50° F [10°C])
may result in leakage of electrolyte and
ultimately in failure of the battery. Charging a
hot battery (above 95°F [35°C]) results in
reduced discharge capacity, affecting the
performance of the radio. Motorola rapid-rate
battery chargers contain a temperaturesensing circuit to ensure that batteries are
charged within the temperature limits stated
above.

TRUNKED RADIO SYSTEMS
The EX600•XLS radio can operate in both
LTR™ trunked and conventional radio
systems.
Conventional typically refers to radio-to-radio
communication, sometimes through a
repeater.
A trunked radio system allows a large number
of users to share a relatively small number of
frequencies or repeaters without interfering
with each other.
The airtime of all the repeaters in a trunked
system is pooled, which maximizes the amount
22
English
of airtime available to any one radio and
minimizes channel congestion.
Some of the benefits of trunked two-way radio
systems are:
When an LTR trunked radio user wants to
communicate with another radio, the user’s
radio sends a “channel request” to the home
repeater. The system then sends back a
“channel grant” to the user’s radio. The channel
grant message contains the number of a “go
to” repeater to tell the radio which repeater to
use. This “go to” repeater can be the same as
the radio’s home repeater or another repeater
in the system.
The radio uses the “go to” repeater for
transmission. Once the transmission has
ended, this repeater is available for other
users.
