Receive / Transmit
Radio users who switch from analog to digital radios often assume
that the lack of static on a digital channel is an indication that the radio
is not working properly. This is not the case. Digital technology quiets
the transmission by removing the “noise” from the signal and allowing
only the clear voice or data information to be heard.
This section emphasizes the importance of knowing how to monitor a
channel for traffic before keying up to send a transmission.

Common Radio Features
Smart PTT (Conventional Only)
Smart PTT is a per-channel, programmable feature used in
conventional radio systems to keep radio users from talking over
other radio conversations.
When smart PTT is enabled in your radio, you will not be able to
transmit on an active channel. If you try to transmit on an active
smart-PTT channel, you will hear an alert tone, and the transmission
will be inhibited. The LED will also blink red to indicate that the
channel is busy.
Three radio-wide variations of smart PTT are available:
Transmit Inhibit on
Busy Channel with
Carrier
You cannot transmit if any traffic is
detected on the channel.
Transmit Inhibit on
Busy Channel with
Wrong Squelch Code
You cannot transmit on an active channel
with a squelch code or (if secureequipped) encryption key other than your
own. If the PL code is the same as yours,
the transmission will not be prevented.
Quick-Key Override
This feature can work in conjunction with
either of the two above variations. You
can override the transmit-inhibit state by
quick-keying the radio. In other words,
two PTT Button presses within the
preprogrammed time limit.

Secure Operations
Secure radio operation provides the highest commercially available
level of voice security on both trunked and conventional channels.
Unlike other forms of security, Motorola digital encryption provides

Special Radio Features
GPS Enabled
Your RSM’s GPS Enabled feature uses information from the Global
Positioning System (GPS) satellites orbiting the Earth to determine
the approximate geographical location of your RSM, expressed as
latitude and longitude. The availability and accuracy of this location
information (and the amount of time that it takes to calculate it) will
vary depending on the environment in which you are using the GPS
feature.
For example, GPS location fixes are very difficult to obtain indoors, in
covered locations, between high buildings, or in situations where you
have not established a clear broad view of the sky.
IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in Mind
The GPS technology uses radio signals from earth orbiting satellites,
to establish the location co-ordinates, maximizing your view of clear
unobstructed sky is essential for optimum performance. Where
adequate signals from multiple satellites are not available (usually
because you cannot establish a view of a wide area of the sky), the
GPS feature of your RSM will not work. Such situations include but
are not limited to:
•
In underground locations
•
Inside of buildings, trains, or other covered vehicles
•
Under any other metal or concrete roof or structure
•
Between tall buildings or under dense tree-cover
•
In temperature extremes outside the operating limits of your RSM
Even where location information can be calculated in such situations,
it may take longer to do so, and your location estimate may not be as
accurate. Therefore, in any emergency situation, always report your
location to your dispatcher.
Furthermore, please note that even where adequate signals from
multiple satellites are available, your GPS feature will only provide an
approximate location, often within 20-100 meters from your actual
location, but sometimes much further from the actual location.
102
94C27-K_XTS5000_MIII.book Page 103 Tuesday, May 6, 2008 4:33 PM
Special Radio Features
Keep in mind that the accuracy of the location information and the
time it takes to obtain it varies depending upon circumstances,
particularly the ability to receive signals from an adequate number of
satellites.
The satellites used by the GPS feature are controlled by the U.S.
government and are subject to changes implemented in accordance
with the Department of Defense GPS user policy and the Federal
Radio Navigation Plan. These changes may affect the performance of
the GPS feature on your RSM.
Enhancing GPS Performance
Sometimes, the GPS feature of your RSM may be unable to complete
a location calculation successfully. You will then see a message
indicating that your RSM cannot see enough visible satellites.
To maximize the ability of your RSM to determine a fix, please note
the following guidelines:
•
Stay in the open. The GPS feature works best where there is
nothing between your RSM and a large amount of open sky.
•
Wear your RSM outside all clothing. Keep it as high on your body
as possible, ideally at shoulder level.

Helpful Tips
Radio Care
!
Caution
• The XTS 5000 radio casting has two vent ports
that allow for pressure equalization in the radio.
Never poke these vents with any objects, such
as needles, tweezers, or screwdrivers. This
could create leak paths into the radio and the
radio’s submergibility will be lost.
• (For XTS 5000 R Radios Only) The XTS 5000
R radio is designed to be submerged to a
maximum depth of 6 feet, with a maximum
submersion time of 4 hours. Exceeding either
maximum limit may result in damage to the
radio.
• (For XTS 5000 R Radios Only) Elastomer
technology materials used for seals in rugged
portable radios can age with time and
environmental exposure. Therefore, Motorola
recommends that rugged radios be checked
annually as a preventive measure in order to
assure the watertight integrity of the radio.
Motorola details the disassembly, test, and
reassembly procedures along with necessary
test equipment needed to inspect, maintain and
troubleshoot radio seals in the radio’s service
manual.
• If the radio battery contact area has been
submerged in water, dry and clean the radio
battery contacts before attaching a battery to the
radio. Otherwise, the water could short-circuit
the radio.

Helpful Tips
!
Caution
• If the radio has been submerged in water, shake
the radio well so that any water that may be
trapped inside the speaker grille and
microphone port can be removed. Otherwise,
the water will decrease the audio quality of the
radio.
• Do not disassemble the radio. This could
damage radio seals and result in leak paths into
the radio. Any radio maintenance should be
performed only by a qualified radio technician.
Cleaning
To clean the external surfaces of your radio:
1
Combine one teaspoon of mild dishwashing detergent to one
gallon of water (0.5% solution).
2
Apply the solution sparingly with a stiff, non-metallic, shortbristled brush, making sure excess detergent does not get
entrapped near the connectors, controls or crevices. Dry the
radio thoroughly with a soft, lint-free cloth.
3
Clean battery contacts with a lint-free cloth to remove dirt or
grease.
!
Caution
128
Do not use solvents to clean your radio. Spirits
may permanently damage the radio housing.
Do not submerge the radio in the detergent
solution.

Helpful Tips
Handling
•
Do not pound, drop, or throw the radio unnecessarily. Never carry
the radio by the antenna.
•
Avoid subjecting the radio to an excess of liquids. Do not
submerge the radio unless it is a ruggedized, XTS 5000 R model.
•
Avoid subjecting the radio to corrosives, solvents or spirits.
•
Do not disassemble the radio.
•
Keep the accessory-connector cover in place until ready to use
the connector. Replace the cover immediately once the accessory
has been disconnected.

Battery
Battery Life
Battery life is determined by several factors. Among the more critical
are the regular overcharge of batteries and the average depth of
discharge with each cycle. Typically, the greater the overcharge and
the deeper the average discharge, the fewer cycles a battery will last.
For example, a battery which is overcharged and discharged 100%
several times a day, will last fewer cycles than a battery that receives
less of an overcharge and is discharged to 50% per day. Further, a
battery which receives minimal overcharging and averages only 25%
discharge, will last even longer.
Charging the Battery
Motorola batteries are designed specifically to be used with a
Motorola charger and vice-versa. Charging in non-Motorola
equipment may lead to battery damage and void the battery warranty.
Motorola-authorized battery chargers may not charge batteries other
than the ones listed on page 135.
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 temperature-sensing circuit to
ensure that batteries are charged within the temperature limits stated
above.
Battery Charge Status
Your radio can indicate your battery’s charge status through:
•
LED and sounds
•
conventional fuel gauge symbol on the display
•
smart fuel gauge symbol on the display

LED and Sounds
When your battery is low:
•
you see the LED flash red when the PTT button is pressed
•
you hear a low-battery “chirp” (short, high-pitched tone)
Conventional Fuel Gauge Symbol
A blinking fuel gauge symbol (b) is displayed only when the
battery voltage drops to low level. In this case, replace the battery
with a fully charged one.
Smart Fuel Gauge Symbol
Consult the Smart Battery manual. All conditions must be met for a
battery to be classified as a “Smart Battery.” When your radio has a
Smart Battery installed, the fuel gauge symbol is always displayed.
Gauge shows

if the battery’s charge is
71% to 100% full
41% to 70%
11% to 40%
10% or less (at 10%, the gauge begins blinking)
Replace the battery with a fully charged one when the fuel gauge
shows the lowest level.
Battery Recycling and Disposal
Nickel-cadmium (NiCd) rechargeable batteries can be recycled.
However, recycling facilities may not be available in all areas. Under
various U.S. state laws and the laws of several other countries, NiCd
batteries must be recycled and cannot be disposed of in landfills or
incinerators. Contact your local waste management agency for
specific requirements and information in your area.
Motorola fully endorses and encourages the recycling of NiCd
batteries. In the U.S. and Canada, Motorola participates in the
