RF Energy Exposure Awareness and Control Information, and
Operational Instructions for FCC Occupational Use
Requirements
NOTICE: This radio is intended for use in occupational/controlled conditions,
where users have full knowledge of their exposure and can exercise
control over their exposure to meet FCC limits. This radio device is NOT
authorized for general population, consumer, or any other use.
This 2-way radio uses electromagnetic energy in the radio frequency (RF) spectrum to
provide communications between two or more users over a distance. It uses radio
frequency (RF) energy or radio waves to send and receive calls. RF energy is one form
of electromagnetic energy. Other forms include, but are not limited to, sunlight and xrays. RF energy, however, should not be confused with these other forms of
electromagnetic energy, which when used improperly, can cause biological damage.
Very high levels of x-rays, for example, can damage tissues and genetic material.
Experts in science, engineering, medicine, health, and industry work with organizations
to develop standards for safe exposure to RF energy. These standards provide
recommended levels of RF exposure for both workers and the general public. These
recommended RF exposure levels include substantial margins of protection.

PM1200.book Page iii Wednesday, October 10, 2007 2:44 PM
All Motorola 2-way radios are designed, manufactured, and tested to ensure they meet
government-established RF exposure levels. In addition, manufacturers also
recommend specific operating instructions to users of 2-way radios. These instructions
are important because they inform users about RF energy exposure and provide
simple procedures on how to control it.
Please refer to the following Web sites for more information on what RF energy
exposure is and how to control your exposure to assure compliance with established
RF exposure limits.
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/rf-faqs.html
http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/radiofrequencyradiation/index.html
Federal Communication Commission Regulations
The FCC rules require manufacturers to comply with the FCC RF energy exposure
limits for mobile 2-way radios before they can be marketed in the U.S. When 2-way
radios are used as a consequence of employment, the FCC requires users to be fully
aware of and able to control their exposure to meet occupational requirements.
Exposure awareness can be facilitated by the use of a label directing users to specific
user awareness information. Your Motorola 2-way radio has a RF exposure product
label. Also, your Motorola user manual, or separate safety booklet, includes information
and operating instructions required to control your RF exposure and to satisfy
compliance requirements.
Compliance with RF Exposure Standard
Your Motorola two-way radio is designed and tested to comply with a number of
national and international standards and guidelines (listed below) regarding human
exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic energy. This radio complies with the IEEE
and ICNIRP exposure limits for occupational/controlled RF exposure environment at
duty factors of up to 50% talk-50% listen and is authorized by the FCC for occupational
use. In terms of measuring RF energy for compliance with the FCC exposure
guidelines, your radio antenna radiates measurable RF energy only while it is
transmitting (during talking), not when it is receiving (listening) or in standby mode.
Your Motorola two-way radio complies with the following RF energy exposure
standards and guidelines:
• United States Federal Communications Commission, Code of Federal Regulations;
47CFR part 2 sub-part J
• American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Institute of Electrical and Electronic

RF Exposure Compliance and Control Guidelines and Operating
Instructions
To control exposure to yourself and others and to ensure compliance with the RF
exposure limits, always adhere to the following procedures.
Guidelines:
• User awareness instructions should accompany device when transferred to other
users.
• Do not use this device if the operational requirements described herein are not met.
Instructions:
• Transmit no more than the rated duty factor of 50% of the time. To transmit
(talk), push the Push-To-Talk (PTT) button or, for radios equipped with VOX, speak
into the microphone. The red LED will illuminate when the radio is transmitting. To
receive calls, release the PTT button, or, for radios equipped with VOX, stop talking.
The red LED will extinguish when the radio stops transmitting. Transmitting 50% of
the time, or less, is important because this radio generates measurable RF energy
exposure only when transmitting (in terms of measuring for standards compliance).
• Transmit only when people outside the vehicle are at least the recommended
minimum lateral distance away, as shown in Table 1, from the body of a vehicle
with a properly installed antenna. This separation distance will ensure that there is
sufficient distance from a properly installed (according to installation instructions)
externally-mounted antenna to satisfy the RF exposure requirements in the
standards listed above.
NOTE: Table 1 below lists the recommended lateral distance for people in an
uncontrolled environment from the body of a vehicle with an approved, properly
installed transmitting antenna (i.e., monopoles over a ground plane, or dipoles)
at several different ranges of rated radio power for mobile radios installed in a
vehicle.

Minimum Lateral Distance from Vehicle Body
Mobile Radio Rated
Power (see Note)
Minimum Lateral Distance from
Vehicle Body
111 to 125 watts
5.0 feet
• When a mobile radio is used in conjunction with another co-located transmitter such as a
Vehicular Repeater, it is the vehicle operator’s responsibility to take appropriate steps to
keep bystanders at the required separation distance from the vehicle to ensure
compliance with the FCC's RF energy exposure limits for the general population. See the
co-located transmitter’s user manual for more details.
NOTE: If you are not sure of the rated power of your radio, contact your Motorola
representative or dealer and supply the radio model number found on the radio
model label. If you can not determine the rated power out, then assure 5.0-feet
separation from the body of the vehicle. The maximum power shown on the
FCC Grant may be higher than the rated power allowing for production
variation.
Mobile Antenna Installation Guidelines
• These mobile antenna installation guidelines are limited to metal body motor vehicles
or vehicles with appropriate ground planes.

5.0 Self Test
When the radio is on, the radio performs a routine check to initialize
and check for any possible hardware errors before actual usage.
When there is an error during the self test, an error code will appear.
Description of the error codes is as follow:
Error1: General communication data error
Most likely caused by one of the listed conditions in the Programming
Problems section.
Error2: Incompatible administrative data
Overhead programming data (which is not displayed by the
programming software) is incompatible with the radio. This also
occurs occasionally during radio-to-radio cloning.
6.0 Radio Configuration
The features described below are set as radio wide setting.
6.1 Time-Out Timer
Time-Out Timer (TOT) is the maximum amount of communication
time allowed per transmission, while operating the radio. Once this
time expires, the transmission is automatically terminated. TOT is set
through the CPS.
The transmit time-out timer can be set between 0.5 to 7.5 minutes in
increment of 0.5 minutes or "unlimited". When a call is initiated, the
radio starts the transmit time-out timer. During transmission, the radio
generates a time-out timer warning tone ten seconds before time-out,
indicating that the radio is about to stop transmitting. Another beep
will sound just before the deadline. To resume transmission, release
the PTT button and wait for the penalty timer to expire. If you press

conventional channel. The lists of channels that the radio scans and
other parameters associated with scan are specified by the Scan List.
When you press the ‘Scan’ PF button, the radio rapidly moves
through the members of the Scan List looking for activity that would
normally cause the speaker to unmute. The radio unmutes when
such activity is detected. When both Tx and Rx activity has ceased,
the radio will return to the active scan state.
Scan Mode can be stopped by pressing the assigned ‘Scan’ PF
button again if the Group Scan feature is disabled.
7.1 Dual Watch
This feature is similar to the Scan feature, but Dual Watch only
monitors the current Operating Channel and the Priority Channel. The
radio scans the two channels when you press the assigned ‘Dual
Watch’ PF button. It pauses each time it finds a channel on which
someone is speaking. You can stop the Dual Watch feature by
pressing the assigned PF button again. The operation will revert to
the channel to which the channel selector knob is set.

7.2 Talkback Scan
Talkback Scan allows you to transmit during scanning pause. This
feature can be enabled and disabled via the CPS. If talkback is
enabled and the radio is in scanning pause on the landed channel,
press the PTT button and the radio will transmit on landed channel. If
the talkback is disabled, then the radio will not be able to transmit on
the landed channel when the PTT button is pressed. Instead it will
transmit on the selected channel.
8.0 Conventional Personality
This section decribes the individual functions of the conventional
personality. The features described below take effect on a per
channel basis. It will only affect the particular channel parameter
settings and allows each channel to have their own configuration.
These individual channel personalities can also be grouped together.
8.1 Busy Channel Lockout (BCLO)
Busy Channel Lockout (BCLO) is the channel lockout rules while
operating on the current channel.
When BCLO is disabled via the CPS, you can transmit even if the
radio is actively receiving. Press the PTT button to unmute the
speaker.
When BCLO (on carrier) is enabled via the CPS, you are not allowed
to transmit when the radio is actively receiving. Press the PTT button
to unmute the speaker.
BCLO (on wrong PL) will not allow transmission when the radio is
actively receiving (carrier is present) or when an invalid tone is
present.

8.2 Scan List
The list of channels that the radio scans and other parameters
associated with scan members are specified in the scan list. Each
scan list can be configured in the CPS. Scan List has a collection of
groups and each group consists of User Scan List, Dealer Scan List,
Priority Scan Channel and Multiple Group Selection.
9.0 Standard Conventional Operation
Conventional operations of the radio are Carrier Squelch operation,
TPL, DPL and Invert DPL
Different groups of radio users share the same frequency or channel
(community repeater). Without the use of Private Line (PL) tones/
codes, each individual group would constantly listen to the
transmissions of all groups; this is known as Carrier Squelch
operation. Private Line operation is done by outfitting members of
each group with radios with a unique PL tone/code. Their radios will
then only unmute to transmissions made by other members of their
group. If radios are set to only unmute when a transmission includes
their own PL tone/code, then they are not disturbed by conversations
of other groups. The sub-audible code that is added to the voice
unmutes only those radios with an identical PL tone/code. There are
two forms of PL available: Tone Private Line (TPL) and Digital Private
Line (DPL).
TPL signal consists of a sub-audible tone that is continuously
modulated onto the carrier. The receiving radio continuously monitor
the carrier, and if the correct sub-audible tone is present, the speaker
will unmute to the recovered audio. TPL tones are summed together
with the voice information during encoding. There are 39 standard
sub-audible Telecommunications Industry Associate (TIA)/Electronic
Industry Association (EIA) tones between 67.0 Hz and 250.3 Hz. The
radio will follow the standard for sub-audible Continuous Tone
Controlled Squelch System (CTCSS) that is covered in TIA/EIA-603.
14
PM1200.book Page 15 Wednesday, October 10, 2007 2:44 PM
Radio Firmware Features
DPL signal consists of a continuous sub-audible digital signal
transmitted simultaneously with a voice message. DPL is similar to
TPL except that a digital pattern is transmitted rather than a tone. The
radio will follow the standard for sub-audible Continuous Digital
Controlled Squelch System (CDCSS) that is covered in TIA/EIA-603.
Carrier Squelch operation does not require a sub-audible signal be
decoded in order to unmute the radio's speaker. Likewise, it does not
produce a sub-audible signal during transmission.
9.1 Carrier Squelch Operation (CSQ)
The radio unmutes when the carrier energy exceeds the radiodesignated carrier energy threshold.
When the energy is below the squelch threshold, carrier squelch
detection is not achieved and radio will remain mute.
If a conventional personality is configured via the CPS to transmit
CSQ only, no PL tones/codes will be transmitted.
If a conventional personality is configured via the CPS to receive
CSQ, no PL tones/codes will be checked. The radio will unmute upon
detection of carrier squelch.
9.2 PL Operation
PL is a Motorola term for CTCSS. PL is a sub-audible tone/code used
to create unique/private communication groups. There are two types
of PL, which in generic terms known as Tone Private Line (TPL) and
Digital Private Line (DPL).
9.2.1 Tone Private Line (TPL)
You can select TPL from the CPS for individual personality. Each
personality has different Squelch type to transmit and receive.

PM1200.book Page 16 Wednesday, October 10, 2007 2:44 PM
Radio Firmware Features
9.2.1.1 TPL Encode
Conventional channels with activated Tone Private Line settings
transmit with the selected Tone Private Line code (transmit TPL).
If TPL is selected, the radio will transmit the TPL code on the selected
conventional personality.
The TPL code determines which code the conventional personality
will transmit.
9.2.1.2 TPL Decode
Receive TPL is used upon detection of a sub-audible tone that is
used in the unmuting rules of the radio. When the radio decodes the
correct TPL sub-audible tone that is continuously modulated onto the
carrier, the radio uses this information to determine if the speaker
should be unmuted.
The Rx TPL code determines which code the conventional
personality will attempt to decode & unmute the radio.
9.2.2 Digital Private Line (DPL)
DPL is a Motorola term for CDCSS. DPL is a digital format
transmitted with the carrier. DPL gives more use and privacy on a
frequency.
DPL is selectable via the CPS for individual personality. Each
personality can have different Squelch type to transmit and receive.
9.2.2.1 DPL Encode
Transmit DPL is the modulation of a sub-audible code on a carrier
frequency. The sub-audible code is summed with microphone audio
prior to modulation.
If DPL is selected, the radio will transmit DPL code on the selected
conventional personality.
The DPL code determines which code the conventional personality
will transmit.
16
PM1200.book Page 17 Wednesday, October 10, 2007 2:44 PM
Radio Firmware Features
9.2.2.2 DPL Decode
Receive DPL is used in detection of a sub-audible code that is used in
the unmuting rules of the radio.
If DPL is selected, the radio will receive digital private line code on the
selected conventional personality. The DPL code determines which
code the conventional personality will attempt to decode.
9.2.3 Inverted DPL
Inverted DPL inverts Digital Private Line (DPL) signals when they are
received by the radio. Inverted coding allows more traffic/usage on
frequencies.
If DPL Invert is enabled on the transmit radio but not on the receive
radio, then the receive radio will not unmute.
If DPL Invert is enabled on the receive radio but not on the transmit
radio, then the receive radio will not unmute.
If DPL Invert is enabled on both the receive radio and the transmit
radio, then the receive radio will unmute.
The encode and decode operation of this Inverted DPL should be
similar to DPL except all the bits in the DPL code are inverted in the
DPL operating process.
9.3 TPL Reverse Burst
This feature is used to transmit a Tone Private Line (TPL) code at the
end of a transmission - once the PTT button is released, and while
operating on the current Conventional Personality. This sub-audible
tone causes the receiving radio to mute its speaker before loss of a
carrier is detected. Muting the speaker eliminates unwanted noise
(squelch tail) during loss of carrier detection.
If the TPL Reverse Burst is programmed to standard or non-standard
via the CPS, a Tone Private Line (TPL) shut-off code will be
transmitted at the end of a transmission once the PTT button is
released, on the current Conventional Personality.
PM1200 Mobile Radio with Control Head
17
PM1200.book Page 18 Wednesday, October 10, 2007 2:44 PM
Radio Firmware Features
The receiving radio will mute its speaker before loss of a carrier is
detected, upon receiving the TPL reverse burst.
If the TPL Reverse Burst is programmed to None (disabled) via the
CPS, then the TPL reverse burst will not be transmitted at the end,
upon the PTT button release. If the TPL shut-off code is not
transmitted, then the receiving radio will not mute its speaker before
loss of a carrier is detected, unwanted noise (squelch tail) during loss
of carrier detection will be heard.
Table 2 shows the result of squelch tail elimination on the receiving
radio based on the TPL reverse burst setting on transmit and receive
radio.

There are 2 formats in use:
- Advances the phase of the tone 240 degree forward
- Advances the phase of the tone 180 degree forward
This setting is programmable via the CPS.
