INTRODUCTION
Your PR400™ radio can operate on both LTR®
trunked and conventional radio systems. This
radio combines the very latest in two-way
technology while delivering outstanding
functionality at the touch of a button.
CONVENTIONAL RADIO SYSTEMS
Conventional typically refers to radio-to-radio
communications through a single channel.
Conventional systems also allow radio users to
extend communication coverage by relaying
their messages through a repeater. To ensure
coordinated use by multiple users, each radio
user must monitor the channel or repeater
before transmitting to verify that the system is
not currently busy.
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 of airtime available to
Some of the benefits of trunked two-way radio
systems are:
•
•
•
•
No channel/talkgroup monitoring required prior
to transmission
Improved system access
Automatic channel/talkgroup selection
Increased privacy among members of the same
group
LTR Trunked Systems
LTR (Logic Trunked Radio) is a transmissionbased trunking protocol developed by the E. F.
Johnson Company for primarily single-site
trunking applications. In transmission trunking,
a repeater is used for only the duration of a
single transmission. Once a transmission is
completed, that repeater becomes available to
other users. This means that a conversation
comprised of many transmissions may occur
over several different channels/talkgroups
within the LTR system. This method of trunking
provides system efficiency by making
repeaters available to all users after every
transmission.
INTRODUCTION
TRUNKED RADIO SYSTEMS
any one radio and minimizes channel/
talkgroup congestion.

English
00_Introduction.fm Page 6 Monday, August 16, 2004 4:33 PM
When an LTR trunked radio user wants to
communicate with another radio, the user’s
radio sends a “channel/talkgroup request” to
the home repeater. The system then sends
back a “channel/talkgroup grant” to the user’s
radio. The channel/talkgroup 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.

Charging Your Battery
This radio is powered by a nickel-cadmium
(NICd), a nickel-metal hydride (NiMH), or a
lithium-ion (Li-lon) 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 nonMotorola 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.
If a battery is new, or its charge level is very
low, you will need to charge it before you can
use it. When the battery level is low and the
radio is in transmit mode you will see the LED
indicator flash red. Upon release of the PTT
button, you will hear an alert tone.
Note: Batteries are shipped uncharged from the
factory. Always charge a new battery 14
to 16 hours before initial use, regardless
of the status indicated by the charger.
RADIO OVERVIEW
BATTERY INFORMATION
Note: Do not use the wall charger and desktop
charger at the same time when charging.
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.

nickel-cadmium (NiCd) battery only.
To Charge the Battery:
1
Turn the radio off.
2
Lift the dust cover to expose the audio
accessory connector.
3
Insert the charging adapter into the accessory
connector.
4
Plug the charging adapter into an electrical
outlet.

next to the feature that has been programmed
to it.
The dealer can use the abbreviations (S1, S2,)
shown in the radio illustration on page 7.
Also, where appropriate, have your dealer
indicate whether the button press requires a
short press, a long press, or needs to be held
down.
