Push-To-Talk (PTT) Button
The PTT button on the side of
the microphone serves two
basic purposes:
• While a call is in progress,
the PTT button allows the
radio to transmit to other
radios in the call.
PTT Button
Press and hold down PTT
button to talk. Release the
PTT button to listen.
The microphone is activated when the PTT button is pressed.
• While a call is not in progress, the PTT button is used to make
a new call (see Making a Radio Call on page 18).
If the Talk Permit Tone (see Turning the Talk Permit Tone On
or Off on page 67) or the PTT Sidetone
is enabled, wait
until the short alert tone ends before talking.
During a call, if the Channel Free Indication feature is
enabled on your radio (programmed by your dealer), you
will hear a short alert tone the moment the target radio (the
radio that is receiving your call) releases the PTT button,
indicating the channel is free for you to respond.
You can turn off the Channel Free Indication tone or the
PTT Sidetone
by disabling all radio tones and alerts
(see Turning the Radio Tones/Alerts On or Off on
page 66).
Switching Between Conventional Analog

Capacity Plus
Capacity Plus is a single-site trunking configuration of the
MOTOTRBO radio system, which uses a pool of channels to
support hundreds of users and up to 254 Groups. This feature
allows your radio to efficiently utilize the available number of
programmed channels while in Repeater Mode.
You can only access channel(s) with Capacity Plus via the
Channel Rocker, while features supported in Capacity Plus can
be accessed via the menu and/or a programmable button press.
Icons of features not applicable to Capacity Plus will not be
available in the menu. You will hear a negative indicator tone if
you access a feature not applicable to Capacity Plus via a
programmable button press.
Your radio also has features that are available in both
conventional digital mode and Capacity Plus. However, the
minor differences in the way each feature works does NOT
affect the performance of your radio.
Identifying Radio Controls
You will also hear the Channel Free Indication tone if your
call is interrupted, for example when the radio receives an
Emergency Call.
Check with your dealer or system administrator for more
information on this system.
Your radio also has features available in both analog and digital

Privacy
Advanced Features
If enabled, this feature helps to prevent eavesdropping by
unauthorized users on a channel by the use of a softwarebased scrambling solution. The signaling and user identification
portions of a transmission are not scrambled.
The LED lights up solid green while the radio is transmitting and
blinks green rapidly when the radio is receiving an ongoing
privacy-enabled transmission.
NOTE: Some radio models may not offer this Privacy feature.
Check with your dealer or system administrator for
more information.
Your radio must have privacy enabled on the channel to send a
privacy-enabled transmission, although this is not a necessary
requirement for receiving a transmission. While on a privacyenabled channel, the radio is still able to receive clear
(unscrambled) transmissions.
Procedure:
Press the programmed Privacy button to toggle privacy on or
off.
OR
Follow the procedure below.
Your radio supports two types of privacy:
1 S to access the menu.
• Basic Privacy

• Enhanced Privacy.
3 Por Q to Radio Settings and press N to select.
Only ONE of the privacy types above can be assigned to the
radio.
4 Por Q to Privacy and press N to select.
To unscramble a privacy-enabled call or data transmission, your
radio must be programmed to have the same Privacy Key (for
Basic Privacy), OR the same Key Value and Key ID (for
Enhanced Privacy) as the transmitting radio.
If your radio receives a scrambled call that is of a different
Privacy Key, OR a different Key Value and Key ID, you will
either hear a garbled transmission (Basic Privacy) or nothing at
all (Enhanced Privacy).

IP Site Connect
NOTE: This feature is not applicable in Capacity Plus.
When the radio moves out of range from one site and into the
range of another, it connects to the new site's base station to
send or receive calls/data transmissions. Depending on your
settings, this is done automatically or manually.
If the radio is set to do this automatically, it scans through all
available sites when the signal from the current site is weak or
when the radio is unable to detect any signal from the current
site. It then locks on to the base station with the strongest
Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) value.
Starting an Automatic Site Search
NOTE: The radio only scans for a new site if the current signal
is weak or when the radio is unable to detect any signal
from the current site. If the RSSI value is strong, the
radio remains on the current site.
Procedure:
Press the programmed Site Lock On/Off button.
1 A tone sounds and the display shows Site Unlocked.
2 The yellow LED blinks rapidly when the radio is actively
searching for a new site, and turns off once the radio locks
on to a site.
In a manual site search, the radio searches for the next site in
the roam list that is currently in range (but which may not have
the strongest signal) and locks on to it.
3 The display shows the site roaming icon and channel alias.
NOTE: Each channel can only have either Scan or Roam
enabled, not both at the same time.
Procedure:
Use the menu.
Channels with this feature enabled can be added to a particular
roam list. The radio searches the channel(s) in the Members list
during the automatic roam operation to locate the best site.
A Members list supports a maximum of 16 channels (including
the Selected Channel).
Advanced Features
This feature allows your radio to extend communication beyond
the reach of a single site, by connecting to different available
sites via an Internet Protocol (IP) network.

Members list. Check with your dealer or system
administrator for more information.
