RP6500 User’s Manual
The performance will be at the best condition if you remove the battery when the green
indicator is on. Then remove the power adaptor from the wall outlet.
The charger will enter the protection mode when the yellow indicator flashes, which means the

times of charging is needed. Make sure the battery is charged at least once every three
months.
* Do not charge the battery again if it is charged fully or not in the low-pressure warning mode,
otherwise, it will have bad effects on its life and performance. Remove the battery from the
charger after charging.
* There is a protection circuit in KB-36C battery, so the power will be cut off at too low power.

The countdown will go on if the time after releasing the PTT key is shorter than the reset time.
Battery Saving
The dealer can set the type of this function by programming.
If the battery saving function is on, 10 seconds after the radio hasn't receive any signals or no operation is being
acted, the radio enters battery saving mode. When a signal is received or any operation occurs, it exits battery
saving mode automatically.
The types include: 1:1, 1:2, 1:4 and off.
The automatic battery saving function decreases the power consumption.
Channel Annunciation
The dealer can turn on or turn off this function by programming.
While switching to another channel, you can hear the voice annunciation of the current channel number.

The dealer can set CTCSS/DCS tones on radio channels, which enable you to ignore (not hear) calls from other
irrelevant parties who are using the same channel.
When you receive a signal that has a tone different from the one set on your radio, you will not hear the signal.
Likewise, signals that you transmit will only be received by parties whose CTCSS/DCS tones are the same as
yours.
Note: Using a CTCSS/DCS channel doesn't mean your calls are private. If other parties' CTCSS/DCS tones are
identical with yours, they can hear your calls.

2TONE signaling
The dealer can set this function by programming.
There are 4 systems of which the parameters can be set, e.g.: the duration of the first and the second tone, the
duration of the long tone and audio spacing, etc. Select the audio frequency(3106.0~288.0hz step size 0.1hz)
in “encoding sequence”, and whether the tones sent are long or two tones, select 2TONE system in “2TONE
List”, then select the correspondent 2TONE code cable in the “user’s resolution” and transfer it with PTT. Select
the audio frequency(3106.0~288.0hz step size 0.1hz)in “decoding sequence”, and whether the tones received
are long or two tones, then select the correspondent decoding cable in the “user’s resolution”. The dealer may
also set the “decoding replay”.
5TONE signaling
The dealer can activate or inactivate this function by programming.
5-Tone has 9 encoding formats: CCIR1, CCIR2, ZVEI1, ZVEI2, SVEI3, EEA, EIA, USER DEFINED 1, and USER
DEFINED 2. The last tow formats are user defined.
1) 5-Tone Decoding
The decoding template is 5-tone decoding. If the decoding template matches the encoding template, decoding
Page 25 of 31
RP6500 User’s Manual
succeeds.
When receiving proper 5-tone signaling, squelch will be activated according to the “RX Squelch Mode” defined
by the user. You can receive the call and LED flashes orange.
After the radio decoding succeeds, the radio will work according to the decoding call response set by the dealer.
2) 5-Tone Encoding
Encoding template consists of at least one and at most three encoding sequences, and each decoding
sequence can be set with 5-Tone, and DTMF. If it is set with 5-Tone, you need to program its content.
If the PTT ID on the channel you select has been set with 5-Tone, 5-Tone signaling will be transmitted when
making a call.
Or transmit 5-Tone signal by pressing the Call 1/2/3/4 button,, which can be set by the dealer.
Transmit beginning/ending signaling (PTT ID)
The identify signal of transmit beginning/ending are used to maintain or disconnect some repeaters or phone
system.
“Transmit start” is used to connect routine repeaters and auxiliary facilities. If the ID transmitted is matchable
with that of the repeaters, the repeaters and auxiliary facilities are available.
“Transmit over” is used to disconnect routine repeaters and auxiliary facilities. If the ID transmitted is matchable
with that of the repeaters, the repeaters and auxiliary facilities are disconnected.

A. The frequencies of both users are not the same, select the same frequency
channel again.
B.The CTCSS/DCS signaling of both users are not the same, set it with PC.
C.Beyond the efficient communication range.
A.Make sure the antenna is well connected.
B.Low sensibility, trimming “computer test mode”。
C.HF amplifier may be broken, replace it.
D.The squelch level is too high, which makes the squelch unable to switch on,
reset it by PC.
E.Mixer tube Q19 may be broken, replace the tube.
F.Frequency Modulation IC4 may be broken, replace the IC.
A.Power-amplifier tube no power output, replace the tube.
B.Replace the microphone if it is broken.
C.Operational Amplifier IC14 may be broken, replace it.
A.Replace the speaker if it is broken.
B.Audio power amplifier IC9 may be broken, replace it.
C.Switch Tube Q48 may be broken, replace it.
D.Operational Amplifier IC6 may be broken, replace it..
A.Make sure the wires are well connected.
B.Abnormal output of the RS-232 serial port of the computer, check the computer .
C.Abnormal connection of MIC and SPK jack, check the jack.
