INTRODUCTION
SECTION 1. INTRODUCTION
Welcome to the world of two-way radio programming from Motorola's Radio Products Group.
1.1 INTRODUCING THE MT 2000™, MTS 2000™, MTX 838™, MTX 8000™, AND MTX 9000™ (MTSX)
RADIO SERVICE SOFTWARE
This Radio Service Software (RSS) manual is targeted for anyone who wants to program features into the
MT 2000, MTS 2000, MTX 838, MTX 8000, and MTX 9000 radios or align a radio. This feature programming, or
customizing, personalizes a radio for the needs of individual customers, resulting in radios with unique
personalities.
This series of portable radios has a unique set of features, including unique PL/DPL codes for each channel, a
variety of signalling abilities with channel scan, and the convenience of maintenance-free tuning, due to the
wideband capability.
This feature set makes these radios ideal for commercial businesses and police and fire protection services that
typically utilize radios in their vehicles.
So how can Motorola design radios with such a wide range of features and still offer a variety of radio services
with the ability to customize and personalize radios? The answer is embedded in modern microprocessor chip
technology in the radio and the development of the MTSX RSS - a computer program that, when interfaced with a
radio, electronically programs and personalizes a radio with a unique set of features for each individual customer.
No tools are needed. This RSS computer program resides on the diskettes you received in the package with this
manual (package RVN4097I).
Here are just some of the features and functions available using the RSS.

This radio’s customization and servicing is accomplished by using an IBM® Personal System/2® model 30 or
higher computer.
NOTE
We recommend you test any computer’s RSS compatibility before purchasing by taking the computer to your shop,
connecting all the hardware, installing the software, starting the RSS and reading and writing data to and from a
radio. If problems occur, call the phone number on the front cover for help - do this prior to purchasing your
computer.

MS-DOS operating system, version 5.0 or later.
This application requires:
80386 or 80486
DOS 5.0 or later
4 Megabytes of RAM or greater.
The powerful features and extensive flexibility of these new radio families require much more codeplug data
validation than in the past. For complex configurations, it is recommended that the RSS be executed from a RAM
disk. This will reduce execution time significantly (an order of magnitude).

Your customers’ needs.
For computer beginners, we’ll teach some computer and MS-DOS basics. However, this manual is written for
both beginners and advanced users, so the primary prerequisite for using the RSS is the desire to program and
deliver an excellent radio to a ready customer.
1.3
INTRODUCTION OF NEW RELEASE
This release of the MTSX RSS utilizes the extended memory capability of the 386 and 486 PCs. To take
advantage of these performance enhancements your machine must be a 386 or 486 based machine with 4M of
memory (1M lower + 3M or more extended). This application is compatible with DOS 6.0, but cannot be run as a
Double Space file.
With extended memory, the application will now run with less than 100K of conventional memory available!
Resident programs and TSR (Terminate & Stay Resident) utilities no longer have to be disabled. This has also
permitted the installation procedure to be significantly improved and simplified. The CONFIG.SYS modifications
required to run the application have been automated, and are described in the rest of this introduction.
A new Tutorial section (Chapter 3) has been added to the manual to discuss programming requirements of some
of the specific MT2000, MTX8000, MTX9000, and MTS2000 models. This release added support for Secure
MTS2000 radio models, and also corrected some defects of the previous release.
1.3.1 EXTENDED MEMORY OPERATION
Previous versions of this application recommended the usage of extended memory for a RAMDrive to reduce the
disk I/O access time. (The application however, only used conventional memory for actual execution.) This
version does not require the use of a RAMDrive or a SMARTDrive.

INTRODUCTION
The new install program will determine if your system has an adequate amount of memory available (3M) and a
286, 386 (or 486) CPU for extended memory operation. If present, the RSS will be installed.
The following line should be added to the CONFIG.SYS file if necessary:
device = c:\dos\HIMEM.SYS
device =c: \dos\EMM386.EXE OFF
Files = 30
NOTE
The DOS MEM command may be used to determine the amount of available
memory in your machine (i.e. type c:\dos\mem. The location of MEM.EXE may
differ on your machine.) If the command reports 3000K or more of available
extended memory, you can take full advantage of these enhancements.
1.4 SUBSCRIPTION INFORMATION
Your RSS is part of a subscription. We’ll keep you advised of changes and automatically mail revisions
throughout the life of the subscription.
A subscription is good for one site. Under the terms of your subscription, you may install the RSS on as many
personal computers as desired at that one site. Another site location requires another subscription.

Table 2-1. Steps to Connect Hardware
Steps to Connect the Hardware
1. Connect A and C with B. First, plug the
9-pin end of B into the communications port
of A. Then connect the 15-pin end to C.
If your computer has a 25-pin connections
port connector, you will need the cable 3080369B71 to insert between A and B.
2. Connect F and C with E. The 25-pin end of E goes into C,
and the modular telephone connector end plugs into the side
connector on the front of F.
3. Plug D into the wall outlet, and connect the other end to C.
After you connect the hardware, turn on the radio by turning the volume control clockwise. You will hear one of
the following types of tones.
Table 2-2. Installation Tone Identification
This tone .....
Means this....
Higher-pitched, short tone
Hardware is connected correctly and the radio's internal firmware
is operating correctly. Note: This tone may be disabled in the
codeplug and may not be heard.
Continuous, low tone
Critical failure - a radio's internal software malfunction.
You can install, start or explore the RSS using just the diskettes and your computer if you don’t have all the
hardware. You can even update existing radio archive files stored on disk. What you cannot do without the
hardware is read from or save to an actual radio.
CAUTION: When programming or calibrating a radio , DO NOT disconnect the radio from the
RIB when the computer is communicating with the radio - it may leave the radio in an
inoperable state. The only recommended time to disconnect the radio is at the MAIN MENU or
GET/SAVE/PROGRAM screens.
NOTE
If you are using a laptop computer and you plan to use the RSS while the computer is in battery mode, you
may need to set the serial/parallel adapter to run on battery power. This can be done with the application
diskette supplied by the computer manufacturer. If this is not done, you will receive serial bus errors.
NOTE
If your RIB has a switch and LED, be sure to turn on the switch before each programming session.

2.2 UNDERSTANDING COMPUTER BASICS
If you are already familiar with computers, skip this section and proceed to “STARTING THE RSS” section.
Your computer can be compared to both an electronics technician and a file cabinet. A file cabinet provides easy
handling, storage, and retrieval of written data. Your computer provides the same. The technician can, with tools,
manually and physically alter the radio’s features and functionality. Similarly, the computer provides the same
with the RSS - a radio dealer or employee can give a radio unique features, save those features for future
reference, copy, or service a radio internally. This can all be achieved without opening a drawer, thumbing
through papers, picking up a tool, or disassembling the radio.
Let’s learn some of the types of computers used for programming radios, the major parts of a computer, and the
ways and places to store your desired radio personality data.
The RSS is designed to run on the following IBM computers and their compatibles: IBM Personal Computer AT,
and IBM Personal System/2 model 30 and higher.
The RSS is not a Windows or OS/2 program. You must not have Windows or OS/2 loaded or the RSS
program will not operate correctly.

2.2.1 Identifying Major Computer Parts
Computers range in complexity and size from ones that easily and lightly fit on your lap to ones the size of a car
that require air-conditioned, smoke and dust-free environments. Falling between this range is the microcomputer,
which is common in many households and businesses today. Whatever their size, most microcomputers
(hereafter referred to as computers) consist of a monitor, a system unit, and a keyboard.
2.2.1.1 Monitor
Monitors perform like a window into the computer, allowing us to see on a display the data inside the computer.
Monitors come in a variety of sizes and colors. Some can be bigger than a 19-inch diagonal television, though a
common size is 12 inches diagonally. Monochrome monitors have only one color behind the words and pictures
on the display, which in many cases is either green, amber, white or black. Color monitors can display two or
more colors on the display at a time, but with color monitors a slight decrease in picture sharpness or text
legibility may be experienced. Colors on the RSS screen can be selected or changed by the user by using the
RSS. To help users quickly find their place on the display before typing, a flashing underscore, called a cursor,
typically serves as a visual place indicator.
Besides the display, a monitor usually has a power cord, an on/off switch, brightness and contrast dials, and a
cable connection to the system unit.
The RSS can function with either monochrome, CGA, EGA or VGA-based monitors.
2.2.1.2 System Unit
The system unit contains a special chip that is the brain of the computer, one or more diskette drives, a hard-disk
drive, a cable connection to the keyboard, one or more communications ports and an on/off switch. The system
unit should be treated with care, as jarring and hot temperatures could internally damage the unit.
2.2.1.3 Keyboard
A user instructs the computer what to do by typing commands on the keyboard. The display shows the
commands as they are typed. Most keyboards have letter keys, numeric keys, and a number of special keys that
perform special functions. The “NAVIGATING THROUGH THE RSS MENU” section describes some of these
special keys and how they perform with the RSS.
2.3 UNDERSTANDING COMPUTER STORAGE SYSTEMS
The computer can store amazing amounts of data (software programs, code, data, files) in several places. Some
of these places are:
•
•
•
•
the random-access memory (RAM),
the read-only memory (ROM),
the hard-disk drives, and
the diskettes
The RAM, ROM, hard disks and diskettes all vary in function and all have certain size limits (memory). They all
store data in terms of bytes, a byte equalling approximately one character as typed on the keyboard. 1,024 bytes
equals one kilobyte, or 1K. For comparison purposes, one page of double-spaced, typed text equals
approximately 2K.
68P81074C50
2-5
GETTING STARTED
MTSX RSS
2.3.1 Random Access Memory (RAM)
Random Access Memory (RAM) is a storage place in the system unit used to run programs and operating
systems. The amount of RAM varies from computer to computer, and it directly affects which programs will run on
your computer. With more RAM you can run larger programs. Most programs indicate how much RAM is required
to run the RSS. You must have at least 200k of free RAM to execute this RSS.
2.3.2 Read Only Memory (ROM)
Read Only Memory (ROM) is a storage place in the system unit that is used by the computer for start-up, booting
and Power-On Self-Test (POST) purposes. The ROM is “read-only,” which means a user cannot write or save
data to it, over it, delete it, or in any other way destroy it by using the keyboard keys. The program in the ROM is
hard-coded into the ROM chip, and as such is protected from user errors.
2.3.3 Hard-Disk Drive
The hard-disk drive stores a user’s programs and files (data). The data can originate from data the user
generates at the keyboard, or from data that is copied from a diskette in a diskette drive, explained below. The
memory capacity of hard-disk drives varies from computer to computer and can be increased with the purchase
and installation of a memory upgrade. Many hard-disk drives can store 20 megabytes (20MB = 20 million bytes),
30MB, or more than 40MB of data. Most hard disks are labeled as the “C” drive.
2.3.4 Diskettes
Diskettes also store users’ programs and files but are different from hard disks because of their transportable,
small size and packaging. A diskette must be “formatted” before storing your files and programs on it. After a
diskette is inserted into a diskette drive, data on the magnetic diskette can be retrieved, stored, manipulated or
erased.
Diskettes come in 3-1/2 inch and 5-1/4 inch sizes, and their memory capacity varies from 360K (low density) to
1.44MB (high density). The RSS is distributed to you on a 3-1/2” low density diskette and two 5-1/4” low density
diskettes so that it may be easily loaded onto any appropriate computer, regardless of the type of diskette drive
that is available. Handle the diskettes carefully - avoid contact with the shiny, brown, magnetic disk surface under
the protective plastic cover on the 5-1/4” diskette and the magnetic disk surface under the sliding metal plate on
the 3-1/2” diskette. Such contact could damage the data or make it unreadable by the drive.
2-6
68P81074C50
MTSX RSS
GETTING STARTED
Diskette drives come in two sizes; one to accommodate the 5-1/4” diskettes. With the 5-1/4” diskette drives, after
a diskette is inserted as far as it will gently go, you must close or push down the “drive door” located on the
outside of the drive or else the computer will not read the data on the diskette. This drive door generally swings
down and locks into place when firmly pressed, and it releases when gently pressed back the other direction
when you want to remove your diskette.
Most diskette drives are labeled “A” or “B,” “A” generally being the topmost (or highest) one. The drives are
labeled by the computer dealer before delivery to the customer.
Instructions, steps, tables and procedures that apply to computers with only diskette drives (no hard disk drive)
will be displayed in a shaded box.

2.4 UNDERSTANDING THE DISK OPERATING SYSTEM (DOS)
•
A computer user operates, communicates with and commands the computer using the computer’s Disk
Operating System (DOS). The DOS commands have special meanings to the computer.
•
Before you can use DOS commands, they must be installed on your hard disk.
•
MS-DOS version 5.0 or later is required to run the RSS.
•
DOS commands can be entered either in upper case or lower case letters. This manual shows shows all
DOS commands in upper case letters.
•
Next is a table of DOS commands that you may use now or in the future for RSS work. Words in italics
mean you should substitute that word for the word that is appropriate for your specific situation.

Table 2-3. Some DOS Commands
DOS Command
What it means...
A:
Go to drive “A.”
B:
Go to drive “B.”
C:
Go to drive “C.”
CD\
Return to the Root Directory. CHDIR is the same as CD.
CD DIRNAME
Change directory to the directory named “dirname.” Maximum directory length is 8 characters.
cd used alone will display the current working path name.
COPY B:*.* A:
Makes an identical copy of all files. The *.* means all files within the directory specified. You
can also copy files in the same directory giving the file a different name as the second argument
to copy command, and you can combine several files into one file or append files. In all cases,
the first argument is the source file (the one to copy from) and the last argument is the target file
(the one to copy to).
DEL Filename
Deletes the filename in the current directory
DEL *.*
CAUTION: Files cannot be recovered after executing this command. Delete all files in
current directory
DIR
Lists the files in the current working directory. You can list files in other directories also by
specifying a path name following the command. If you have more files than will fit on the
display, you can type DIR/P, which will make DOS pause when the display is full. Pressing any
key resumes the listing. DIR/W specifies a wide display (5 columns) of file names.
DISKCOPY B: A:
Copies the contents of the disk in drive B to the disk in drive A. Drives must be of the same size
and density. If your drives are not the same size and density, use the same drive name twice,
such as DISKCOPY A: A:.
FORMAT A:
Format an unused, new or old diskette in drive A of the computer so it will accept MS-DOS files.
MD DIRNAME
Makes a new subdirectory called “dirname” of 8 characters or less. You substitute your
directory name for the italicized word dirname. MKDIR is the same as MD.
PROMPT $P $G
Change the display's prompt to include the current working directory's drive and path name,
followed by the “>” sign. This sign is typically seen in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
PATH
Set a command search path (such as PATH=C:\MRSS\MTSX\ARCHIVE). This tells the
computer to search this directory after the working directory when a command is entered. This
sign is typically seen in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
RD DIRNAME
Remove a subdirectory called “dirname”. Removal of the subdirectory requires that it be empty.
Files can be deleted by the DEL command. RMDIR is the same as RD.
VER
Prints MS-DOS version installed on the computer, such as MS-DOS Version 5.0.
XCOPY
Copies files and directories, including all subdirectories. This command uses disk space more
efficiently and can speed up file access time.
For further information on these and other commands, consult your MS-DOS User’s Manual.

GETTING STARTED
You may have noticed some special characters in the preceding table (*). Certain keyboard characters mean
special things to DOS. Some of these are:
Table 2-4. Special DOS Command Characters
Special DOS Character
What it means...
*
Wildcard character. You can substitute this character for any type or
quantity of characters/digits that follow (not precede) it.
\
Backslash. A special character to separate directories
when specifying path names. By itself, it also represents the root
directory.
?
Wildcard character meaning you can substitute/match it for any
single-digit or character.
/
Front slash. Used for setting options of commands.
There are a couple limitations you may want to know about DOS, RSS files, and directories.
1)
First, DOS only allows file names to be 8 characters long. However, file names can have an optional
1, 2 or 3-character extension after the file name. The extension must be separated from the file name
by a period (sometimes called a dot).
2)
Second, DOS allows only 111 files under the root directory (topmost) on any diskette or hard disk. We
highly recommend that you further subdivide your files into more directories before you accumulate
this many files in any directory, not just the root directory. It’s very confusing and time-consuming to
work with or view this many files at once.
3)
Last, the maximum number of files allowed by the RSS in any non-root directory, whether diskette or
hard disk, is approximately 400. This is an RSS limitation, not a DOS or computer limitation. If you
have more than 400 files, create another directory.
The RSS is not a Microsoft Windows program. The RSS can be executed only from the DOS prompt on
computers which are not running Microsoft Windows.

DISK #2
A file can be a program (a set of commands to tell the computer what to do), or a collection of data or information.
As mentioned in the DOS section, DOS files generally have two parts - a file name followed by a file extension,
which is optional. The extension provides an easy way to, at a glance, identify or tag files for easy grouping or
categorizing. In the computer world, some file extension naming conventions have evolved, and Motorola uses
these conventions in the RSS, as you may have noticed.
Now you know what’s on the RSS diskettes we supply. Next you’ll learn how to organize your own disk and
diskettes that you’ll use to store your radio archive files. We suggest that frequent RSS users and computer pros
skip the “ORGANIZING YOUR HARD DISK AND DISKETTES” section and join us back in the “STARTING THE
RSS” section. New users should read all sections.

68P81074C50
MTSX RSS
GETTING STARTED
2.6 ORGANIZING YOUR HARD DISK AND DISKETTES
When you first start using computers you typically do not have a lot of files to organize. But after a while it gets
increasingly difficult to distinguish between file types, to pick out a specific file in a long list, to keep track of
what’s in which file, or to remember which files are similar in content. Therefore, it’s important to spend some time
now deciding which types or groups of files should be located together in a common place, called a directory.
You can make directories using the DOS MD or MKDIR commands (or inside the RSS via the FILE
MAINTENANCE MENU).
You may want to organize your directories first by customer area, then by customer name, and finally by radio
model type, or perhaps in the reverse order. Consider the different ways in which you operate your business - do
you separate radio files by customer location, by sales revenue, by fiscal year, or perhaps by date of purchase?
When deciding how to organize your files and directories, we suggest a few things:
•
First, we advise you to put as few directories as possible near the top, or root, of your directory tree,
considering your future growth too. (For example, if you have 100 customers within 4 geographical
areas, we suggest your first level of sub directories be the areas that encompass the customer. The next
level of directories would be the customer names within each of those areas.) The idea is to make the
root system spread out wider the deeper you grow, similar to a pyramid shape.
•
Keep the RSS diskette contents in one directory and your archive files in a different directory.
•
Keep archive files in separate directories according to radio model type (MT, MTX, MTS, etc). It is not
possible to know a file’s model type by looking at the file name. Have a separate directory name for each
radio model, then store the archive files for that specific model within the appropriate model directory.
This way archive files for multiple model types are not located in the same directory.
•
The last point we recommend is to dedicate and create a separate diskette for your backup files; always
make backup copies of your files. If you routinely store archive files on your hard disk, make backup
copies of your files on a diskette.

2.6.1 Organizing Your Hard Disk
Below is a sample directory tree for storing your radio archive files on your computer’s hard disk. Though your
hard disk directory tree may be a little different based upon your way of doing business, this setup may be a
starting point for you. The install program will automatically create the MRSS and MTSX directories for you if they
do not exist.
We suggest that you execute the following command before starting. If you place it in your autoexec.bat file, it will
be executed every time the computer is started. PROMPT $P$G. The prompt will the show your current location
in the directory tree. Note how the prompt changes when the following commands are typed to change
directories. The prompt is shown in bold face.

2.6.2 Organizing Your Archive File Diskettes
Below is a sample diskette directory tree for storing your radio archive files on a diskette.
Organizing a diskette is easier due to smaller space on a diskette. Though your tree may be different based upon
your way of doing business, this set-up may be a starting point for you. Be sure to label your diskettes accurately,
such as “1993 MTSX Archive Files”. Depending on the size of your business, you may even have a separate
diskette for FIRE, one for SECURITY, etc.
To create the directory tree shown in Figure 2-3 on your diskette, follow the steps on table 2-6. After each
command, press Return or Enter. This exercise assumes you are using drive A and the diskette contains only
MTSX archive files (not RSS files and not backup files).

2.7 STARTING THE RSS
You have accomplished a lot so far - you have identified and assembled the hardware, you acquired knowledge
of basic computer and DOS concepts, and how to organize disks. You are now ready to start the RSS on your
computer. This section, approximately 30 minutes long, will explain when to install, reinstall, or discard the RSS
diskettes. It will guide you through installation process of the RSS on a hard disk, and finally, it lists how to start
the RSS with the appropriate executable command.
2.7.1 Making a Backup Copy of RSS Diskette(s)
As with any program, it is important to make a backup copy of the RSS diskette before you begin to use it.
Whenever you receive a new version of the RSS, you should make a backup copy.
We recommend a backup copy of your RSS, even if you have a hard disk. To make a backup copy, follow the
steps below. These steps assume you have one diskette drive named A or you have two diskette drives that are
not the same size and density, and that DOS is loaded.
Note
DISKCOPY will not copy from one drive to another if the drives are not the exact same size and density.
Table 2-7. Steps to Backup the RSS Diskette(s)
Instruction
1.
Insert RSS diskette
2.
Make the backup copy
3.
Keep originals safe
68P81074C50
What to Type
Explanation
Put supplied RSS diskette into
drive A; close the door
DISKCOPY A: A:
This copies the data on the source
diskette in drive A (supplied RSS diskette) to the
target diskette (the newly formatted diskette).
Caution: accidentally reversing the insertion
order of the diskettes will erase the contents of
the RSS diskette. DOS will tell you when to insert
the source diskette (RSS one) and when to insert the
target diskette (the newly formatted one). When the
diskcopy is complete, use the target diskette as the
new working copy.
Store the original RSS diskettes in
a safe place away from magnets, moisture, heat and
possible damage.

2.7.2 What To Do with Previous Versions of RSS Diskettes
After you have created a backup copy of the new RSS diskettes, you may wonder what to do with the previous RSS
versions you may have accumulated. We recommend discarding the older versions so that you do not accidently
program the radio with outdated data.
2.7.3 Starting the RSS From the Hard Disk
A hard-disk drive installation program is on the RSS diskettes. After installing the RSS on your hard disk, follow the
startup procedure.
2.7.4 Installing the RSS on Your Hard Disk
Install the latest RSS version as soon as you receive it. Using the install program on the diskettes you received with
this manual assures that you have the latest and greatest version of the RSS. It also keeps important files in a
consistent place for cross-referencing and future use. The software installation takes approximately three minutes.
The install program will:
•
Create the MRSS, MTSX and ARCHIVE directories, if they are not already there.
•
Write over the old version’s program files with the same name, if present.
The install program will not:
•
Write over your archive files.
Before doing the installation steps that follow, be sure you have made a backup copy of the RSS, explained in the
“Making a Backup Copy of RSS Diskette(s)” section and Table 2-7 “Steps to Backup the RSS Diskette(s).”
The steps below install the RSS on your computer. After each “What to Type” step below, press Return or Enter.
Table 2-8. RSS Hard Disk Installation Procedure
Instruction
What to Type
Explanation
Insert the RSS Diskette into Drive A (close the

door), later you will be instructed to insert the
other one.
2. Go to drive A.
A:
This tells the computer to work from drive A.
3. Start the installation.
INSTALL
This transfers the RSS to your hard disk. Follow
directions and answer questions on the display
when they appear. You will be instructed to
switch diskettes in the diskette drive (for
example, “INSERT DISK CONTAINING FILE
...”).
When the prompt returns, you may start the
RSS (see next section).
4. Store diskettes in safe place
Keep the RSS diskettes in a safe place and
start RSS from the hard disk from now on.

GETTING STARTED
After installing the RSS on a hard disk, you may notice a .BAT extension and a .ODB extension. These types of
files are explained briefly below. Do not delete or move these files from the C:\MRSS\MTSX directory.
.BAT A batch file. The INSTALL command file creates a file called MTSX.BAT in the top level directory of the
hard drive.
.CFG Created and modified by the RSS, the configuration file (.CFG) contains the PC port choice, the default
pathnames, and the display-type data.
.ODB Used by the RUNTIME.EXE file to properly configure your radio.
2.7.5 Installing the RSS on Multiple Computers or Networks
You may install the RSS on several personal computers and laptop computers at a single site, according to your
license. If you have additional sites (a second shop, etc.) then you should purchase additional subscriptions.
Now that you have a backup and working copy of the RSS, you will start the RSS in the next section.
2.7.6 Hard Disk RSS Startup Procedure
To start the RSS from your hard disk, follow the steps in the table below. After each “What to type” step, press
Return or Enter.
Table 2-9. Hard Disk Startup Procedures
Instruction
1. Move to C drive.
2. Start the RSS
What to Type
C:
MTSX
How to do it/What it Means
Work from hard disk, the C drive. If you have a
hard disk and you bring up your computer with
no diskettes in the diskette drives, you will
already be at the C drive.
This command starts the RSS. If it does not start
correctly, you may hear a tone or see an error
message or error code printed on the display.
After you start the RSS from the hard disk, you will see the BANNER screen.

section.
2.8 NAVIGATING THROUGH THE RSS MENUS
You have successfully started the RSS and are ready to learn just what it is you see on the display, how to move
around, how the RSS is organized, how to change the feature choices, and finally, how to exit.
Now that the RSS MAIN MENU is on your display, to proceed any further you may want to know about the
keyboard keys and what they do. Below is a picture of a typical computer keyboard.

a menu or screen pathname for the current menu or screen shown on the display. Each menu and
screen name will be separated by a colon (:). For some examples of this pathname, glance ahead in
this manual to see the menus and screens that are deeper into the RSS tree (past the MAIN MENU,
the highest root level, which is the assumed, default starting point). If a radio is connected, the
current radio model being read will also be displayed in this area.
B
Instruction Area. This area tells you the allowable actions for the current menu or screen. It is
divided into 4 lines; the first two lines are reserved for messages to the user, and the last two lines
are status lines.
C
Working Area. This area of a menu (not a screen) displays a list of functions (menu choices) you
can execute from the current menu. Each menu-item is preceded by an F-number key (function key).
Pressing an F-number key advances you to another menu or screen (see Figure 2-10).
D
F-Key (Function Key) ID Area. This area displays the F-number keys and function names for the
current menu or screen.
NOTE
All functions (supported and unsupported) will be displayed in the menu’s working area. The unsupported
functions (based on the radio’s model or options) will NOT be displayed in the F-key ID area.

Figure 2-8. An RSS Screen
The working area of a screen contains a list of programmable features called “fields” that can be selected or
changed using the arrow, tab or return keys described earlier. On some screens are features that can be selected
for each individual channel (hereafter we will refer to a channel as a “mode”); these features are selected on a
“per-mode” basis. On other screens are features that can be selected for all modes of the radio (“radio-wide”
features).

MTSX RSS
And still other screens list those features that perform a certain RSS function, such as servicing the radio or
printing the personality data.
2.8.4 A Complete Menu Mapping at a Glance
The screens are organized in a tree-root fashion (Figure 2-9). Though this tree-root system is shown sideways in
the following picture, it shows how the whole system starts with a main root (MAIN MENU) at the left side and
branches outward from the main root. This branching grows deeper as you get closer to the precise screen which
contains the feature you want to program into the radio.
Traveling from one RSS menu or screen to another is similar to the way a car must use the road system to drive
to the other side of a lake, instead of flying directly as a plane would. To move forward from one screen to
another, use one of the F-keys until you’ve reached the menu that contains the other screen you want. To back
up, use the F10 key. Each time you press F10 you retreat to the previous screen or menu, moving closer to the
MAIN MENU.

Information fields - non-editable fields which cannot be altered or changed.
Scrollable fields - to edit or change a choice, press the arrow key(s).
Direct-entry fields - to edit or change a choice, type in an acceptable value.
Changing a field’s value is typically done by either scrolling through a list of options (in scrollable fields) or by
typing in a correct value (in direct-entry fields). Scrolling is done with the arrow keys.
Press Tab or Enter to
move to field, then type

2.10 SETTING (CONFIGURING) THE RSS COMPUTER DEFAULTS
Now that you are aware of how fields, screens and menus relate to one another, this section introduces the
concept of saving certain default computer information. Setting the computer defaults eliminates the need to
specify them every time you enter the RSS or program a radio.
Read this section if you want to:
1.
Set a default file path name so you won’t have to specify it every time you save a radio archive file,
2.
Set or change the default port used to interface with the radio and RIB,
3.
Set the default colors you see on your RSS screen.
If you’ve been with us from the start, you should be at the MAIN MENU. If you’ve just joined us or got lost inside
the RSS screens, press Esc to get to the MAIN MENU. From the MAIN MENU, press F9 to get to the SERVICE
SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION MENU.
From the SERVICE SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION MENU you can either read the on-line help, set some
default computer values, or exit. Pressing F3 on the SERVICE SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION MENU will
display the CONFIGURE COMPUTER screen, where you can specify the default drive and path names for future
archive files. Pressing F7 on the SERVICE SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION MENU displays CONFIGURE
SCREEN where you can specify the colors for your screen’s text, lines, background and highlighted fields.

2.11 EXITING THE RSS
If you want to program a radio, don’t exit yet. Whenever exiting the RSS, always ask yourself these questions:
1. Did you apply the changes to the radio (save to the radio)?
2. Did you apply the changes to a computer file (save archive file)?
If you do want to exit, exiting is very easy - you use the Esc key to return to the MAIN MENU, then press F10/F2
to exit to the DOS prompt.

The MAIN MENU is the top level of the program from which all function selections start. All selections are made
via the function keys, labeled F1 through F10 on the keyboard. All other menus contain an ESC key, and by
pressing it the operator may at any time return to the MAIN MENU. After making a selection, the user will be
directed to similar menus and/or data entry screens for RF alignment or codeplug data. The user must initially
load data from a radio (or disk) via the GET/SAVE function before being permitted to CHANGE/VIEW any
codeplug data. For any problems not covered by the Radio Service Software Users manual or the service
manual, contact the local MOTOROLA field technical representative.
FUNCTION KEY DESCRIPTIONS:
F1 - HELP when pressed provides additional information on this screen. Generic help is available within any
help screen via the MORE HELP function.
F2 - SERVICE is a multi-level menu that permits access to all radio service alignments via the service screens. A
radio must be connected to the computer via the RIB before access will be permitted to the service screens.
All service screens access the codeplug directly, therefore, it is NOT necessary to read the codeplug data
before using the service screens.
F3 - GET/SAVE is used to read codeplug data from a radio and/or retrieve archived codeplug data from a
diskette or hard disk for editing via the CHANGE/VIEW function. GET/SAVE is also used to program edited
codeplug data back into the radio or to create an archive file on a diskette or hard disk.

F4 - CHANGE/VIEW is a multi-level menu that is used to change, view, or modify codeplug features and option
configurations. All radio codeplug parameters are classified as either RADIO-WIDE, CONVENTIONAL,
TRUNKED, or PERSONALITY related. CHANGE/VIEW permits access to each of these categories. Unlike
the SERVICE function, a codeplug must be loaded into the computers memory, via GET/SAVE functions,
before CHANGE/VIEW functions can be accessed. An archive file can be accessed without a radio being
connected.
F5 - PRINT MENU will print selected codeplug data.
F6 - FILE MAINTENANCE is available to allow some file manipulation capability without exiting the RSS. New
directories can be created and files can be deleted from this screen.
F8- FLASHPORT UPGRADE is a multi-level menu that is used to view the radio’s configuration, to view the
FLASHkey’s contents, to upgrade the codeplug, and to FLASH the radio.
F9 - SETUP is used to configure the the Radio Service Software to the users particular application. Archive path
names, communication ports, and even screen colors may be customized to the customer’s specific needs.
F10 - EXIT is used to quit the program and return to DOS. Ensure that all desired codeplug changes have been
programmed back to the radio and that an archive copy has been made. If this is not done, all changes will
be lost as returning to DOS erases this data from the computer’s memory.

TUTORIAL
SECTION 3. BASIC RADIO PROGRAMMING TUTORIAL
3.1 INTRODUCTION TO SECTION
Now that the hardware and software installation is complete, the RSS is up and running, and you're familiar with
the keyboard and the RSS user-interface, you are ready to personalize a radio. The tutorials that follow will walk
you through the programming of radios with specific features.
The first tutorial walks a new user through the steps to program an MT2000 basic 16-channel conventional radio
and saving the personality to the codeplug and archive files.
The second portion of the tutorial walks you through the process of programming an MTX8000 trunked radio.
The third tutorial involves cloning (copying) the personality data from an archive file of one already programmed
radio to other radios. Cloning is used when there is a need for multiple radios equipped with the same radio
features and functions.
These tutorials list the desired features for the particular application, then give an overview in a list format of the
major steps involved in programming the radio, then finally walks you through the specific steps to program the
features into the radio.
All of the tutorials assume that the RSS is up and the MAIN MENU is displayed. If the MAIN MENU is not
displayed, follow the brief steps below. In all the tutorials, remember F1 displays help information corresponding
to the current highlighted field or current screen. F10 backs you out of the RSS one menu level at a time. Esc
goes directly to the MAIN MENU.
Table 3-1. Quick Steps to Bring Up MAIN MENU
1. Assemble, connect and power up the hardware and computer.
2. After the computer has successfully booted, the prompt will be C:.
3. If you have not yet installed this latest RSS version, make a backup RSS copy (see Section 2.7.1) and install it on
your hard disk. (see Section 2.7.4)
4. Type MTSX
5. Press Return
6. Press any key at the BANNER screen (see Figure 2-4, Section 2.7.7).
7. The MAIN MENU appears.

MTSX RSS
PROGRAMMING A BASIC 16-CHANNEL MT2000 CONVENTIONAL RADIO
In this tutorial, we list the desired features, address the major decisions involved, and give step-by-step
instructions for programming the 16-channel conventional portable radio.
3.2.1
Desired Features
Let's assume the following features are desired:
•
•
•
•
16 Transmit/Receive Frequencies
Private Line/Digital Private Line (TPL/DPL) Codes
Assign Scan to the concentric switch and create two scan lists.
Enable Telephone Operation (for full keypad models only)
We will assume that factory defaults are suitable for most parameter values.
3.2.2
Major Decisions Involved
To program the desired features above, the approach with the RSS will be:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Determine desired number of personalities (channels) desired.
Determine desired feature systems to use (basic, scan, signalling).
Determine desired features to program radio-wide (all channels).
Determine desired features to program per-personalities (individual channels only).
3.2.3
High Level Programming Flow
The overview of the flow of programming in this example is as follows:
1. Read the radio.
2. Assign button/switch functions that differ from factory defaults.
3. Create a second scan list (list members not filled in at this time).
4. Set up the phone number list.
5. Create/configure Conventional personalities.
6. Assign personalities to switch positions on Zone/Channel screen.
7. Fill in scan lists with the desired zone/channel entries.
8. Program the radio.
This programming flow was chosen because it minimizes navigation between screens.
3.2.4
Step-by-Step Specific Programming Instructions
We have designed a sample chart (Page 3-3) for a conventional radio for recording the features you wish to
program into your radio. See Appendix E for a blank form you can use for future conventional radios.

3.
4.
Determine desired number of systems and subfleets desired and their configuration.
Determine desired feature systems to use (basic, scan, etc.).
Determine desired features to program radio-wide (all systems).
Determine desired features to program per-system per-personality, etc.

CLONING MORE RADIOS
To clone (copy) radios, they must be of the same model type and version. Cloning applies predominately to
conventional-only radios. To clone trunked radios, you are required to have a system key for each of the trunked
systems programmed into the source radio on file. Most organizations that program trunked radios will not have
access to these keys. The process for cloning conventional and trunked radios, however, is the same.

Desired Features
The desired features are the exact same ones listed in the first tutorial, section 3.2.1

Major Decisions Involved
The major steps for cloning in this tutorial are reduced from six steps in the first tutorial to two steps here.

Clone Current Radio From Archive File
Radio codeplugs consist of both personality and tuning data. Cloning allows you to "merge" two codeplugs
together. The archive file or radio with the desired personality will be referred to as the source file or source
radio. The other will be referred to as the target radio. The result will be an image that can be programmed into
a radio and/or saved to an archive file. This image will have the source codeplug's personality yet the tuning data
of the target codeplug will remain unchanged. In this tutorial, the source personality is the file saved in the first
tutorial, and the target radios are the remaining radios not yet programmed.
NOTE
The IDs for MDC-1200, DTMF, etc. must be changed manually if you want to
have unique IDs! You may do this by going to CHANGE/VIEW immediately after
cloning each radio.

Refer to your radio service manual for the balanced attenuator alignment (compensation) procedure. This
procedure should only be attempted by qualified service personnel.
Compensation alignment is critical to the operation of signalling schemes that have very low frequency
components (that is, DPL) and could result in distorted waveforms if improperly adjusted.
Balanced attenuator alignment balances the modulation sensitivity of the VCO and reference modulation
(synthesizer low-frequency port) lines. It is a way of correcting for deviation sensitivity versus RF frequency
variations in the VCO. The transmit and receive bands are divided into frequency zones with a calibration point
(value) in each zone. Balanced attenuator alignment is required after replacing (or servicing) the controller board
or the RF board. Using the up/down arrow keys, adjust compensations per your radio service manual.
Performing this procedure automatically calculates compensation alignment.
The programming procedure, function key descriptions, and field definition are on the following page.

F1 - HELP provides useful information about the currently displayed menu, screen, or field.
F2 - READ RADIO function reads the information (data) stored in the radio codeplug (EEPROM) and transfers it
to the computer’s memory. The time required to READ a codeplug will depend directly on your computer
type and the size of the codeplug you are reading. The status of the READ operation is displayed at the
bottom of the screen. After completion of the read operation, data validation occurs. During this step, data
merges, formats, and screen interdependencies are checked.
F3 - GET ARCHIVE function is used to retrieve an archive file from a diskette or hard disk to the computer. Once
retrieved, the file may be modified via the CHANGE/VIEW functions or programmed into a radio just as
codeplug information read from the radio via the F2 READ function.
F4 - MERGE TCMS is used to update the codeplug information with trunking information from the TCMS
(Trunking Code Management System). The required changes must first be entered into the TCMS
database through a TCMS terminal, then downloaded using a modem and the TCMS On-Line Field
Programming (OFP) software package.
F5 - CLONE RADIO is used to copy codeplug information from one radio to another radio. Only radios with the
same model number may be cloned. The screen summarizes the individual ID information for both MDC
and Trunking so that it can be changed from one convenient screen. Trunked radios may not be cloned
unless System Keys have been loaded for each trunking system ID.
F7 - SAVE ARCHIVE function is used to create (or update) an archive copy of the codeplug information onto a
diskette or hard disk. An archive copy of every radio installed or serviced is STRONGLY recommended in
order to be able to quickly restore customer information is case of a codeplug failure.
F8 - PROGRAM RADIO function is used to transfer codeplug information from the computer to the radio
codeplug. A radio and RIB must be properly connected to the computer and power turned on before you
attempt the program function. After pressing the F8 function key, the programming of the codeplug
commences, and data validation occurs. During this step, data ranges, formats, and screen
interdependencies are checked.
The time required to PROGRAM a codeplug will depend directly on your computer type and the size of the
codeplug you are programming. The status of the PROGRAM operation is displayed at the bottom of the
screen.
F9 - VIEW HISTORY gives all the information about the last time the radio was programmed. This includes where
and when the radio was programmed and if the programming was authorized.
CAUTION
If software versions of the radio and the current data are not compatible, then Read the radio
codeplug and enter the data again. Conventional data can be entered from the RSS screens or
cloned from another radio. Trunked data must be down loaded from the trunking code
management system (TCMS) via a TCMS codeplug update.
F10 - EXIT moves the display backward in the RSS tree, one screen or menu at a time.

Full Cloning procedures.
1. Use the GET/SAVE functions to read (F3/F2) the radio codeplug to be cloned. That is the “source”
codeplug. An archive file may also be used as the “source” codeplug.
2. Enter the serial number of the radio to be cloned on the TRUNKED CLONING screen, or press F2 to read the
serial number from the connected radio. System keys are required to change the serial number.
3. Change the trunking individual IDs to those required by the new radio on this screen. If MDC IDs are used
also, they can be changed on the MDC ID screen by pressing F3.
4. Connect the “target” radio to the computer, and press the F8 function key to program the “source” codeplug
into the “target” radio.

Limited Cloning
A limited clone may be used when all the system keys required to perform a full clone are not available. When a
limited clone is performed, all trunking information, which existed in the “source” radio , will be deleted or changed
to default data. Re-entry of trunking information will be required. The steps below will guide you in performing a
limited clone.
1. Use the GET/SAVE functions to read (F3/F2) the radio codeplug to be cloned. That is the “source” codeplug.
An archive file may also be used as the “source” codeplug.
2. Press the Limited Clone function key (F4) on the TRUNKED CLONING screen. At this point all the trunking
data in the “source” codeplug will be deleted or defaulted. This includes all trunking system and trunking
personality data. Zone/Channel, Conventional, Phone List, Call list and Scan List data will be preserved.
Warning
Do NOT program this image into the original radio unless you want all the trunking data to be
deleted.
3. Enter the serial number of the radio to be cloned or press F2 to read the serial number from the connected
radio. The F2 function will not be allowed prior to step 2 unless system keys are present. At this point in time
you will have a codeplug image for the “target” radio which contains the conventional data and radio wide
data from the “source” radio and no trunking data. You may operate on the codeplug image in the same
fashion as any other codeplug image. It may be archived, edited or programmed into the “target” radio.
Normally you will proceed to step 4.
4. Go to the TCMS merge screen (F3/F4). Merge the new “target” codeplug with the file downloaded from
TCMS for the “target” radio. You now have a “target” codeplug image which contains the conventional and
radio wide data from the “source” radio, and the trunking data from the TCMS merge.
5. Program the target radio by pressing F8 from the normal programming screen (F3/F8) or the cloning screen
(F3/F5).
6. Archive the “target” codeplug image.
NOTE
A radio and RIB must be properly connected to the computer and power turned on before you
attempt the READ function.
The time required to READ a codeplug will depend directly on your computer type and the size of
the codeplug you are reading. The status of the READ operation is displayed at the bottom of the
screen.

MTSX RSS
FIELD DEFINITIONS:
Ignore Sec/Clr Switch When Strapped
If this parameter is set to Yes and the active radio mode is strapped to Secure or Clear, the radio ignores the
setting of the Secure/Clear Switch and allows user-initiated voice transmissions based upon the mode's
strapping. In this configuration the Secure/Clear Switch has no effect. If this parameter is set to No and the active
radio mode is strapped to Secure or Clear, the radio checks the position of the Secure/Clear Switch
against the active mode's strapping. If the strapped value does not match the setting of the switch, the radio will
not transmit
The factory default is No.
XL IC Present
This field should be set to Yes if the radio is equipped with an XL chip.
Tx Clear Alert Tones
When this field is set to Enabled, an alert tone will be generated every time the user keys up the radio in the clear
mode. The factory default is Enabled.
Periodic Keyfail Alert Tone
When this field is set to Enabled, a periodic alert tone will be generated whenever the radio has lost key and one
of the following conditions are met:
1.
2.
Secure/Clear Strapping is set to Secure or
Secure/Clear Strapping is set to Select and the two position concentric switch is in the secure position.
Factory default is Enabled.
Non-XL Scan Unsquelch Duration
When scanning for coded transmissions, this field determines the period of time that the radio will wait for a NonXL (Cipher Feedback) encrypted signal to be detected following a carrier detect. When the Scan Select field in
the Personality screen is set to Non-XL, the selected value for this field is used when scanning.
The range is -60-6375 in 25 ms. increments. The factory default is 275 ms.
XL Scan Unsquelch Duration
When scanning for coded transmissions, this field determines the period of time the radio will wait for a Non-XL
(Cipher Feedback) or XL encrypted signal to be detected following a carrier detect. When the Scan Select field in
the Personality screen is set to Non-XL&XL, the selected value for this field is used when scanning.
The factory default is 875 ms. The range is -60-6375 in 25 ms. increments.
Secure Punch Thru
Use UP/DOWN arrow keys to scroll or directly enter the desired value. The RSS shall allow the user to set the
Secure Punch Thru feature to one of the following settings: Disabled, Always On, or to a Variable Volume
Position (i.e. the feature will become active when the volume knob is set to a level greater than this programmed
volume position). The valid range of the Variable Volume Position is from 1 to 254 which corresponds to the
absolute position of the radio volume knob.
Secure Punch Thru is a feature intended to reduce high volume distortion in the secure receive mode by
removing much of the distortion producing low frequency content (i.e. from amplifier clipping and speaker/housing
overload), and improve intelligibility in high background noise environments (i.e. the radio is at high volume), by
boosting the high frequency content that tends to get washed out in such conditions.
The Secure Punch Thru feature is activated when the radio is receiving in the secure mode and the volume knob
is beyond an RSS programmable position. The feature turns off the de-emphasis filter in the receive secure audio
path, leaving the audio pre-emphasized from the transmitter (i.e. the lower frequencies are reduced and the
higher frequencies are increased). The factory default is Disabled.
Note
This feature requires the transmitting radios to use pre-emphasis, which is normally the
case. Also, the Secure Punch Thru feature activation point can be anywhere from the
volume knob's lowest position (i.e. turned on all the time when receiving secure) to its
highest position (i.e. turned off all the time when receiving secure).

conjunction with the Long Press Emergency feature users should be trained to
LONG PRESS the emergency press button for an extended duration to ensure
that the emergency will be sent.
Unmute Option
This feature is an optional ADDITION to the Emergency Silent Alarm feature Enabling this feature will cause the
radio to UNMUTE on the emergency talkgroup (for trunking) or frequency (for conventional) for voice traffic when
the radio is in SILENT ALARM EMERGENCY mode. The Unmute Option will allow the dispatcher to provide
feedback to the person initiating the emergency state via code words, without drawing undesirable attention.
The factory default is Disabled.
Warning
Channel Delay (sec)
The radio must be on a channel for this delay time before it can transmit an emergency signal. For emergency
operation, sometimes this delay time is desired to prevent the radio from sending an emergency signal on an
undesired channel,which might occur while the user is changing channels and pressing the emergency button.
Valid selections are 0 to 7 seconds. Factory default is 2 seconds.
Man Down Pre-Alert (sec)
This delay is the period between closure of the Man Down switch and the initiation of the Man Down Alert tone.
The radio must have an external Man Down switch for this feature to work. The Man Down switch is an optional
switch that can be attached to the radio to detect when the radio position is not vertical. Valid delays are 1 to 120
seconds. Factory default is 10 seconds.
Man Down Post-Alert (sec)
This delay is the period between the Man Down alert tone and the actual transmission of the Emergency Alarm
sequence. The radio must have an external Man Down switch for this feature to work. The Man Down switch is
an optional switch that can be attached to the radio to detect when the radio position is not vertical. Valid delays
are 1 to 120 seconds. Factory default is 10 seconds.

This screen allows you to edit the radio-wide menu list. Radio models with front display utilize a Menu to simplify
the operation of the radio. This screen is used to customize the radio for the required feature set.
The radio will automatically use either the Conventional or Trunking menu functions as required. If a personality
does not use a specific feature, the radio will not display that menu item for that personality.
The menu items are displayed in the order in which they are placed in the list. Therefore, the first three items will
always be shown when the menu is entered (assuming that personality uses those items).
Use F2 to add and F4 to delete conventional items.
Use F7 to add and F9 to delete trunking items.
WARNING
Do NOT duplicate a function on multiple controls, i.e. a button and a switch, or a button and a
menu, or a switch and a menu. This may cause the radio to malfunction, and can cause operator
confusion.

FIELD DEFINITIONS:
Nuisance Mode Delete
This option allows you to temporarily delete non-priority channels from the scan list that are constantly busy
which may cause the radio to be constantly locked onto a channel. A channel deleted using this option will remain
deleted until scan is stopped. When scan is started again, all channels which were previously deleted will be
replaced. Factory default is Enabled.
Priority Scan Alert
If this option is enabled, the radio will audibly alert the user when it unmutes on a priority channel while scanning.
One beep is generated for the priority talkgroup in a trunked scan list, or for the first priority channel in a
conventional scan list. Two beeps are generated for the second priority channel in a conventional scan list.
Factory default is Disabled.
Rx Hold Time (sec)
This is the amount of time the radio remains on a channel after a message has been received before scanning
resumes. Valid entries are 0 to 255 seconds in 1 second increments. Factory default is 3 seconds.
HUB Suspends Scan
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to Enable/Disable the HUB Suspends Scan feature. HUB Suspends Scan will
determine if the scan operation will be suspended while the microphone is removed from the hang up box. If HUB
Suspends Scan is enabled, scan operation will be suspended while the microphone is removed from the hang up
box. This will allow the user to complete a conversation while scan is suspended. For portables this option is
applicable when a Vehicular Adapter is used.
The factory default is Disabled.
Carrier Detect Required
When this option is enabled, the priority channels will stop on carrier squelch detect but only unmute on the
standard signaling conditions programmed for that channel. Factory default is Disabled.
Priority Chan Marking
When this option is enabled and the radio is in Priority Scan Mode, the radio checks the channel for activity and
proper PL. If the channel has carrier but the wrong PL or no PL, the channel is marked so the radio will not
recheck for the proper PL. The radio will not unmute on this channel until the carrier is dropped.
This is done to prevent the PL decode time from being added to the audio hole time when the radio is unmuted
on a non-priority channel and is sampling the priority channel. Care should be exercised in using this feature - it
is possible for messages to be missed, especially if long repeater hangtimes are used. Factory default is
Disabled.
Monitor Hold Time (sec)
Scan monitor hold time is the time the radio remains on a conventional channel during scan after the monitor
button has been released. Valid entries are 0 to 255 seconds in 1 second increments. Factory default is 6
seconds.
Voting Scan
Conventional Voting Scan is used to select the best repeater to use in a multi-frequency simulcast conventional
system. Enabling this field will cause all conventional personalities using a conventional scan list with
Auto Scan enabled (Main->F4->F6->F3->F9) to perform conventional voting scan. Before using Conventional
Voting Scan, you must first create a conventional scan list which contains all repeaters in the Conventional
Voting Scan wide area network. Each conventional personality in this list must have Auto Scan enabled. The
factory default is Disabled
Warning
Having more than 7 list members in a conventional scan list used for
Conventional Voting Scan may degrade performance, resulting in missed
transmissions.

Failsoft Hold Time (sec)
This timer value determines how long the radio will stay unmuted on a failsoft channel (1 to 255 with 1 second
increments or Disabled) if failsoft is found while in talkgroup scan. Factory default is 6 seconds.
System Search Time (sec)
This timer value determines how long the radio will stay on a control channel (0 to 255 seconds with 1 second
increments) searching for talkgroups which are in the scan list before scanning the next system. The system
search timer will only apply in systems which do not employ the scan marker feature. Factory default is 10

FIELD DEFINITIONS:
Telephone Interconnect This option allows the radio to initiate and receive land-to-portable telephone calls and
specifies the type of interconnect.
Half duplex means that communication can take place in one direction at a time only. Full duplex allows
communication in both directions at the same time. Portable products supported by this RSS support half-duplex
phone communication ONLY.

Important Note
Do not modify this field unless you are a FTR. Changing the ISW Window Adjust field
may degrade the trunking systems performance.
Auto Dial Holdoff (ms)
This field defines the amount of time the radio will wait after gaining access to phone channel before a prequeued phone number will be dialed. It ensures that the fixed end is ready for dialing to commence. Normally
the user waits for a dial tone, but in this case, the radio is dialing and cannot detect a dial tone.
RF Modem
If RF Modem is Enabled, the radio will only be able to function as an RF Modem (i.e, to be used with system
watch). When RF Modem is Disabled, the radio operates normally.

FIELD DEFINITIONS:
Failsoft Inactivity (sec)
This field pertains to failsoft operation. If a radio remains inactive while operating in failsoft for this specified time
(in seconds), the radio will momentarily leave failsoft and attempt to find a control channel. A value of zero here
indicates that the radio will not leave failsoft. The valid range is 0 to 255 in 1 second increments.
Factory default is 120.
Busy Override Delay (sec)
This field specifies the time interval (in seconds) during which the user must depress the PTT button in order for
the radio to issue a busy override signal. The valid range is 2 to 6 in 1 second increments.
Factory default is 4.
Aff. (affiliating) Hold Off (sec)
This field is the time (in seconds) that the radio should delay before affiliating at a new site when leaving a site
which just incurred a failure. The valid values are 1, 3, 7, 15, 31, 63, 127, and 255 in 1 seconds.
Factory default is 63.
Busy Override Chirp Ack
Setting this bit causes the radio to produce a chirping sound after a busy override has been issued.
Factory default is On.
Display Site Trunking
Setting this bit causes the radio to display the "Site Trunking" message when the user is locked onto a site that is
in site-trunking mode.
Factory default is On.
Full Spectrum CC Scan
Setting this bit causes the radio to perform a full spectrum Control Channel scan when the radio goes out of
range of all its programmed Control Channel information. Full spectrum scan searches the entire frequency band
(800 MHz, 900 MHz, band 1 UHF band, or VHF) for a control channel for the radio to lock onto. This is used
when the radio cannot find a control channel on any of the frequencies programmed on the RSS.
Factory default is OFF.
Full Spectrum CC Scan Timer (sec)
This is the amount of time (in seconds) the radio has to perform full spectrum CC scan before returning to the
normal CC scan. The valid range is 5 to 31 seconds.
Factory default is 10.
RSSI Acceptable Threshold
Use the UP/DOWN arrows to make your selection or enter a value directly. In the RSSI sampling scheme, RSSI
values are separated into four levels -- poor, acceptable, good and excellent – as shown (i.e.: all values below the
acceptable constant fall into the POOR level, values between the acceptable and good constants fall into the
ACCEPTABLE level, etc.). The value in this field specifies the POOR/ACCEPTABLE boundary. Domain {L: 00 <=
L <= FF}.
The default is 61

The default is 66.
RSSI Excellent Threshold
Use the UP/DOWN arrows to make your selection or enter a value directly. In the RSSI
sampling scheme, RSSI values are separated into four levels: poor, acceptable, good and
excellent. This value specifies the good/excellent boundary. Domain {L: 00 <= L <= FF}.
The default is 69.
VC RSSI Accpt Threshold (Voice Channel RSSI Acceptable Threshold)
While in a voice call, RSSI samples will be compared against the Voice Channel RSSI
Acceptable Threshold. If samples fall below this threshold, the radio will initiate an attempt at
site switching, causing an interruption in the voice call. Valid RSSI values range from 1 to FF.
Selecting Disabled will set the threshold to 0, disabling voice channel RSSI site switching.
The factory default is Disabled.
Special Note On RSSI Threshold Constant Settings
The default values for the RSSI (received signal strength indication)
threshold constants programmed in your radio may not be optimal
for your system. These values are critical for proper site switching.
Please review the following information to set the RSSI threshold
constants for your SmartZone system configuration and desired site
switching performance.

FIELD DEFINITIONS:
Voice On Control Capable
When a radio is VOC Capable, it is able to handle the transition of a site going into and out of Voice On Control
Mode without entering the Out-of-Range state.
Factory default is Disabled.
RSSI Acceptable Threshold
This field defines the minimum signal strength (RSSI value) for a radio to determine that it is in range of a valid
voice or control channel. If a site enters Voice on Control, the radio will remain locked onto that site. One of the
possible conditions that would cause the radio to roam to another site (or possibly enter the Out-of-Range state)
is when the radio determines there is about 5 seconds of low signal strength (RSSI below this threshold) on the
last active CC. The range of values for this field is 0 to 255.
Factory default is 74.
Voice On Control Site Lock Time
This field defines the maximum time (in seconds) a radio will remain locked onto a Voice on Control or Control
Site before it will attempt to lock onto another site (and possibly enter the Out-of-Range state). The range of
values for this field is 15 to 255 in 1 sec. intervals.
Factory default is 60.
Voice On Control Pended Emer Time
This field defines the necessary data fields for operation on a Voice on Control capable site. When a site enters
VOC Mode, its Control Channel is surrendered for a Voice Call. All radios that are not Voice On Control Capable
will go out of range at that time. The range of values for this field is 500 to 6000 msec in 25 msec intervals..
Factory default is 500.
Voice On Control Activation Time
This field determines the maximum time (in 25 mS increments) that the radio will delay before sending in ISW
requests upon receiving a system Status OSW indicating the site is exiting Voice On Control Mode.
he range of values for this field is 500 to 6000 ms in 25 msec intervals.

Use the up/down arrow keys to scroll from system #1 to the number of systems in the radio.
System Key
A system key or FTR key is required to access this field. Otherwise, the TCMS download procedure must be
used (F3/F4)
System Type
If the Trunking System is Type I, the range of the ID changes for different size codes. The ID is a three digit
hexadecimal number. If you have more than one fleet on a system, you may want to use a Universal ID, so
people calling you can use one ID.
If the Trunking System is type II or IIi, the individual ID is a four digit hexadecimal number. For Type II trunking,
your radio will have a single Individual ID per system, independent of the number of talkgroups, user groups, or
personalities it is affiliated with on that system.
TYPE I or TYPE II/IIi indicates the trunked signalling protocol used on this system.
Type I is the original MOTOROLA trunked signaling protocol.
Type II/IIi is an enhanced version of the original protocol that provides additional fleet management flexibility for a
given system via an expanded signalling format. Each radio has a single individual ID per system, independent of
the number of talkgroups, user groups, or personalities it is affiliated with on that system. The screen for a II/IIi
system contains some information different than that for a Type I.

System ID
This field contains the 4-digit hexadecimal number which identifies the trunked system. A system key or FTR
key is required to access this field. Otherwise, the TCMS download procedure must be used. (F3/F4). This
number must match the ID of the Trunking Repeater System.
Alias
Up/down arrow keys will Enable/Disable the System Alias feature. When enabled, the upper 8 bits of the System
ID are ignored. Factory default is Disabled.
Connect Tone
The Connect Tone is a sub-audible tone required on the voice channel to access the trunked repeater. The
function is similar to the conventional repeater access tone. This field is not applicable to SmartZone systems.
0 - 105.88 Hz
1 - 76.60 Hz
2 - 83.72 Hz
3 - 90.00 Hz
4 - 97.3 Hz.
5 - 116.13 Hz
6 - 128.57 Hz
7 - 138.46 Hz
Coverage Type
A system key or FTR key is required to access this field. Otherwise, the TCMS download procedure must be
used. (F3/F4). The choices for this field are:
WAC AMSS - Wide Area Coverage Automatic Multiple Site Select.
Local AMSS - Local Automatic Multiple Site Select.
Smart Zone - New Motorola system for wide area roaming.
Disabled - Disable wide area coverage.
In an AMSS system, multiple sites are linked together to form a larger trunked system. Radios programmed for
Wide Area AMSS can use the site that they are within range of, and when they move between sites, the radio can
switch sites without interruption of communications that are in progress. Up to eight control channels can be
used for Wide Area Systems.
If WAC AMSS is selected and WAC AMSS Failsoft is selected on the Trunking Personality screen (F4/F4/F4), the
F6 function key on the personality screen will be used for entering the failsoft channels. Radios programmed for
Local AMSS are only allowed to use one site. This site is entered as the Site ID below the Coverage Type field.
Remote Monitor
Use the up/down arrow keys to enable/disable Radio Trace (remote monitor) for this system.
RM Base Time
Use the up/down arrow keys to select the base time in seconds. The radio will transmit during a Radio Trace for
this system (15, 30, 45, or 60 secs).
Affiliation Type (Type II/IIi) Automatic/On PTT
Use the up/down arrow keys to select the Affiliation type:
Automatic - The radio will immediately affiliate with the central controller as soon as it is turned on, and will
automatically re-affiliate each time the talkgroup is changed.
On PTT - Affiliates only when the PTT is pressed. Factory default is On PTT.

Dynamic Regrouping
The up/down arrow keys will enable/disable Dynamic Regrouping for this radio. A system key or FTR key is
required to access this field. Otherwise, the TCMS download procedure must be used. (F3/F4). A Dynamic
Regrouping Talkgroup position (DYN) must be assigned on the zone/summary (F4/F8) screen. Enabling
Dynamic Regrouping will automatically add DYN to the list of talkgroups on that screen. Only one DYN position
may be assigned per system. Dynamic Regrouping allows the dispatcher to temporarily reassign selected radios
operating in separate fleets and/or talkgroups into a single group. Factory default is Disabled.
Zone
This is the zone position used when a radio is dynamically regrouped. This is used in conjunction with the
channel position to determine which zone/channel Talkgroup will be used during Dynamic Regrouping.
Chan
This is the channel position used when a radio is dynamically regrouped. This is used in conjunction with the
zone position to determine which zone/channel talkgroup will be used during Dynamic Regrouping.
Universal ID (Type I Only)
When trunking type I is selected, a Universal ID is used, all individual calls (Phone, Private Call, and Call Alert)
will be received if they are addressed to the Universal ID, even though the operator might have another
personality in that system selected. This simplifies individual communications with the radio. Also, the radio will
initiate all Private and Phone Calls with the Universal ID. Therefore, only one ID per radio must be enabled at the
Central Site Controller. The radio will also respond to Dynamic Regrouping commands to the Universal ID,
making it easier for a regrouping console to regroup a radio. Factory default is Disabled.
Individual ID
Enter the three digit ID for this system (Type I Only). Examples are: 001, 02A, 1FF, 200. An actual ID must be
entered, not a personality number. Use the up/down arrow keys to override the Universal ID for Individual calls.
When this option is enabled, the radio will use the PFI (Personal Fleet ID) to initiate individual calls instead of the
Universal ID. Factory default is Disabled.
Size Code
Use the up/down arrow keys to choose the SIZE CODE for this fleet.
Valid SIZE CODES are: A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,M,O,Q.
The SIZE CODE determines the maximum number of fleets, subfleets, and individual IDs allowed. The SIZE
CODE and fleet ID chosen must match the programming of the Central Controller.

Fleet ID
The Fleet ID is a three digit hexadecimal number where the first digit is the prefix and the second two digits are
the Fleet. For any size code the subfleets for Fleetwide and Dynamic Regrouping are always available.
The valid range for the Fleet I depends on the size code chosen. Examples of Fleet IDs are 300, 402, 001, and
703.
Individual ID
Enter the Trunking Individual ID in hex. The Individual ID is a number that uniquely identifies your radio on a
particular system (or Personality for Type I). A system key or FTR key is required to access this field. Otherwise,
the TCMS download procedure must be used (F3/F4).
Type II/IIi Only
Valid IDs will be between 1 and FFFF. The decimal equivalent of the Individual ID is used for your radio's Private
Conversation Call ID (7+ID#), interconnect land-to-portable unit calls (7+ID#), and interconnect land-to-portable
talkgroup calls (7+ID#).
Type II systems have a single Individual ID per radio, independent of the number of talkgroups, user groups, or
personalities that radio has on that system.
Type I systems have a unique ID for each personality.
Access Type
Use the up/down arrow keys to select the Trunking Access type:
Slow - The original trunking signaling protocol with acknowledgments (high speed) for all channel grants.
(Rx = Slow, Tx = Slow).
Fast - An enhancement to the original protocol that eliminated the channel grant acknowledgments, thus
improving the channel access time. (Rx = Fast, Tx = Fast).
This information must be coordinated with your system manager to insure proper operation of the system.
Conversation Type
Use the up/down arrow keys to select the Trunking Conversation type, either Message or Transmission.
Message Trunked Systems:
After the initiator dekeys the radio, the voice channel stays active (hangtime) so other members of the talkgroup
can respond on the same channel. If a radio in the talkgroup transmits during another user's transmission, they
will talk over the other transmission.
Transmission Trunked Systems:
No hang time and no talk over. When a radio is dekeyed, the channel is immediately de-allocated and
reassigned. If the user tries to talk over an active channel, the radio will not respond until the channel is clear.
Tx Defeat
When this option is enabled, the radio will use the PFI to initiate individual calls instead of the Universal ID.
Factory default is Disabled.
This Call ID
This is the Type I call ID, which is calculated from the Size Code, Fleet ID, and Individual ID.

FIELD DEFINITIONS:
System
Use the up/down arrow keys to scroll from system number 1 to the number of systems in the radio.
Tx Power Select
The transmit power may be reduced 1 watt for 800 and 900 MHz models, and 2 watts for VHF and UHF models.
Factory default is High. This feature is not available for all models.
DEPENDENCIES:
The power levels selected will depend on the alignment values, which can be adjusted under the alignment
section in the Service portion of this RSS package.
Trunk Repeater Offset
The value must be set to the frequency separation between the transmitter and receiver frequencies used at the
central repeater site. Factory default is 45MHz for 800 band and 39 MHz for 900 band.
Channel Assign Type
Sets the channel assignment type to Domestic or International. Domestic - 25 KHz channel spacing used in the
USA. International - 12.5 KHz channel spacing used outside the USA.
Splinter Channel (800 MHz Only)
The control channels will be shifted down 12.5 KHz and the radio will interpret the channel numbers received
over the air as splinter channels as well. Channels in the 821 band will not be affected. Factory default is
Disabled.
Rx Modulation
This field should be based off of the expected receive data format for the personality. This field allows the user
to configure the radio's personality for strictly binary (2-level) receive operation, strictly multi-level (4-level)
receive operation, or both binary and multi-level receive operation (Auto Receive). When operating in Auto
Receive mode, the radio will automatically detect the received signal type and process the data accordingly. As
a side note, however, 2-level sensitivity is reduced when operating in the Auto Receive mode and thus should
not be used on channels or systems that are strictly binary (2-level). This field applies only to Secure radios.
Channel Bandwidth
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select the Channel BandWidth. This value must be set to the Channel
BandWidth of the system the radio is to operate on.
NOTE
Strapping fields for Announcement Group, Fleet ID, Talkgroup, etc.will be forced

FIELD DEFINITIONS:
Personality
Up/down arrow keys will scroll through the available personalities. Alternately the F3/F4 function keys can be
used to navigate through the available personalities. Personalities can be added by pressing F2 or deleted by
pressing F5 function keys. You will be prompted before the delete occurs.
Protocol Type
The Protocol Type refers to the type of trunking system, Type I, II, or II/IIi.
Type I is the original MOTOROLA trunked signalling protocol.
Type II is an enhanced version of the original protocol that provides additional fleet management flexibility for a
given system via an expanded signalling format.
Type IIi is a hybrid of type I and II that permits a radio to operate as a type II unit on a type I system.
System/ID
The up/down arrow keys will select the Trunking System this personality is to use. (The system ID is shown by
the system number) The trunking system (F4/F4/F3) should be set up before the personality information is
entered since some of these fields depend on the system information.

Type
If the Trunking System is Type I, the range of the ID changes for different size codes. The ID is a three digit
hexadecimal number. If you have more than one fleet on a system, you may want to use a Universal ID, so that
people calling you can use one ID. Press F8 to go to the Universal ID screen where you can enter the
information required to use a universal ID.
If the Trunking System is type II or IIi, the individual ID is a four digit hexadecimal number. For Type II trunking,
your radio will have a single Individual ID per system, independent of the number of talkgroups, user groups, or
personalities it is affiliated with on that system.
TYPE I or TYPE II/IIi indicates the trunked signalling protocol used on this system.
Type I is the original MOTOROLA trunked signalling protocol.
Type II/IIi is an enhanced version of the original protocol that provides additional fleet management flexibility for a
given system via an expanded signalling format. Each radio has a single individual ID per system, independent of
the number of talkgroups, user groups, or personalities it is affiliated with on that system.
Announcement Group
Enter the Announcement Talk Group in this field. This field contains the user TalkGroup for Announcements for
the current personality. The Announcement TalkGroup is a 3 digit hexadecimal number.
Strapping
This field configures the transmit mode of Announcement Group or Fleet ID. If set to Clear or Secure, the
Announcement Group or Fleet ID is forced to that particular transmit mode. When set to Select, the user is
allowed to select the secure transmit modes via the radio's two position concentric switch.
Individual ID
Contains the Individual ID, number that uniquely identifies your radio on a particular system.
Valid IDs will be between 1 and FFFF. The decimal equivalent of the Individual ID is used for your radio’s Private
Conversation Call ID (7 + ID#), interconnect land-to-portable unit calls (7 + ID #), and interconnect land-toportable talkgroup calls (7 + ID #).
For Type II trunking, your radio will have a single Individual ID per system, independent of the number of
talkgroups, user groups, or personalities it is affiliated with on that system.
Failsoft Type
When the Central Site Controller fails in a Trunked system, the system goes into Failsoft operation.
Depending on the type of system, there will be different choices for Failsoft operation:
Disabled
No failsoft used.
Personality/Fleet
Uses the Announcement Group Failsoft Frequency for all talkgroups within the
personality.
Talkgroup/Subfleet
The frequency is determined by the Subfleet selected. These are set in
the Subfleet screen.
WAC AMSS
The Failsoft frequency used depends on which AMSS site the radio is using at
the time. The frequencies are entered via the F6 function key.

FIELD DEFINITIONS:
Protocol Type
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select the Trunking Protocol Type for this personality.
Type II - An enhanced version of the original protocol that provides additional fleet
management flexibility for a given system via an expanded signaling format.
Type IIi - A hybrid of Type I and II that permits a radio to operate as a type II unit on a type I system.
Access Type
This determines how the radio will access a Type II/IIi system. Either Tx Fast/Rx Slow or Tx Fast/Rx Fast.
Select Tx Fast/Rx Fast for use with fast access systems and Tx Fast/Rx Slow for slow access protocol
emergency subfleets. New type I radios operating on fast access systems should be set for fast access. Type IIi
radios which have to communicate on systems with slow radios should be set to slow access.
Emergency Call
Emergency Call gives the operator priority to enable the Emergency Call option.
The Emergency Call condition is entered by pressing a button configured to initiate emergency. All subsequent
PTT transmissions while in the CALL state will be made with high priority access to a voice channel. Emergency
Alarm and Emergency Call may both be enabled, in which case the Call state is entered when PTT is pressed.
Factory default is Disabled.
Emergency Alarm
Emergency Alarm allows the operator to press the Emergency button to send an alarm to the dispatcher.
Emergency Alarm is a coded transmission made on the control channel in response to pressing a button
configured to initiate an emergency. These alarm transmissions will be sent until the control channel
acknowledges the alarm, the console dispatcher acknowledges the alarm (if console ack is enabled), or the alarm
retry counter is exhausted.
If normal alarm operation is selected, the display will flash emergency and valid key chirp will be heard when the
alarm condition is entered. Four good beeps will be heard when the alarm condition has been acknowledged.
If silent alarm is selected, there will be no display or audible indication when the alarm condition is entered, nor
will there be any indication of alarm acknowledgement. Also, the radio will mute the receiver audio so that no
radio traffic is heard. Factory default is Disabled.
Console Acknowledgement Required
If a Console Acknowledge is Required then an Emergency Alarm is not considered successful unless a
Dispatcher Acknowledge is received. When an Emergency Alarm is not successful the full four beep
Acknowledge Tone is not sounded and the Alarm is automatically sent again until the number of retries specified
is exhausted. Factory default is Disabled.
Retry Counter
If an unlimited number of retries is desired then select Infinite, otherwise enter a value from 1 to 255.
Normally if the radio is unsuccessful in sending a transmission it will retry for one ISW sequence before quitting.
For Emergency Alarms, however, the radio will retry for the number of ISW sequences specified by the Retry
Counter. NOTE: Emergency alarm must be enabled for this field to be valid.

Revert Announcement Group (or Revert Fleet ID)
Enter the Emergency Default Announcement TalkGroup in this field. This field contains the Emergency User
TalkGroup for Announcements during an emergency for the current personality. The Emergency Default
Announcement TalkGroup is a 3 digit hexadecimal number.
While in the emergency call state with tactical emergency disabled, your radio will monitor this talk group for
fleetwide announcement calls.
Revert Announcement Group (or Revert Fleet ID) Strapping
This field configures the transmit mode of Emergency Announcement Group or Emergency Fleet ID. If set to
Clear or Secure, the Emergency Announcement Group or Fleet ID is forced to that particular transmit mode.
When set to Select, the user is allowed to select the secure or clear transmit modes via the radio's two position
concentric switch.
Revert TalkGroup (or Revert Subfleet)
This field contains the Emergency User TalkGroup for use during an emergency for the current personality. The
Emergency Default Talk Group is a 3 digit hexadecimal number.
Database controlled parameter. Emergency Type II only parameter.
If the tactical emergency feature is disabled, then all emergency transmissions will be made on this default
talkgroup.
If tactical is enabled, then all emergency transmission are made on the currently selected talkgroup. The only
exception would be when the radio has been dynamically regrouped and the dynamic regrouping mode is
selected, in which case the emergency transmission would be made on the dynamic regrouping talkgroup.
Revert Talkgroup (or Revert Subfleet) Strapping
This field configures the transmit mode of Emergency TalkGroup or Emergency Subfleet. If set to Clear or
Secure, the Emergency Talkgroup or the Emergency Subfleet is forced to that particular transmit mode. When
set to select, the user is allowed to select the secure or clear transmit modes via the radio's two position
concentric switch.
Emergency Hot Mic
This feature when enabled, will activate the Emergency Hot Mic operation (also known as Trunking Emergency
with voice to follow). When an Emergency Alarm is generated, and the emergency alarm acknowledge is
received, the radio will automatically drop into emergency call mode and begin transmitting for the time specified
by the Tx Period with the mic unmuted.
IMPORTANT
This feature is mutually exclusive with normal emergency operation. That is, if this feature is
enabled emergency operation will always operate in this manner.
Tx Period (sec)
When the Emergency Hot Mic feature is enabled, the Tx Period determines the time period the radio will be
transmitting with the mic unmuted, without user intervention. The Tx Period ranges from 10-120 seconds in
increments of 10 seconds. Default Tx Period is 10 seconds.

Field Definitions
Personality
Use the up/down arrow keys to scroll through the available personalities. Alternately the F3/F4 function keys can
be used to navigate through the available personalities.
Conversation Type
Use the up/down arrow keys to select the Trunking "Conversation" type, choices are: Message, Transmission or
PTT ID.
Message Trunked:
After the initiator dekeys the radio, the voice channel stays active (hang time) so other members of the
talkgroup can respond on the same channel. If a radio in the talkgroup transmits during another user's
transmission, they will talk over the other transmission.
Transmission Trunked:
No hang time and no talk over. When a radio is dekeyed, the channel is immediately deallocated and
reassigned. If a user tries to talk over an active channel, the radio will not key until the channel is clear.
PTT ID:
PTT ID systems are similar to message conversation type systems with hang time and talk over, but they
send an ID code to the controller when PTT is pressed. After the ID transmission, the radio goes back to the
voice channel to talk to the other users.
Auto Scan
Use the up/down arrow keys to enable the Auto Scan option for this personality.
When enabled, the radio will automatically scan when on this personality. To use a scan on/off switch or button,
this option must be disabled.
Factory default is Disabled.
Proper Code Detect
When this parameter is set to Enabled, the speaker will unmute on secure data only if it is encrypted with the
correct key.
Access Type
Use the up/down arrow keys to select the Trunking Access type:
Slow - Refers to Rx Slow utilizing the high speed acknowledgments for all channel grants
(Rx=Fast, Tx=Fast).
Fast - Refers to the elimination of the high speed acknowledgment which improves channel access time
(Rx=Fast, Tx=Fast.
This information must be coordinated with your system manager to insure proper operation on the system.
Talk Permit Tone
Use the up/down arrow keys to select the Talk Permit Tones.
When enabled, a Talk Permit Tone beep will be made every time a transmission is made. The tone indicates that
the user may begin the talking.
The factory default is Enabled.

MTSX RSS
CHANGE/VIEW
FIELD DEFINITIONS:
Monitor Type
This option determines how the radio unmutes when the monitor button is pressed. Silent Monitor, also called PL
Defeat, allows the user to monitor the channel before transmitting. Factory default is Open Squelch.
Open Squelch - When this option is enabled, the radio will always unmute, even on noise, when the monitor
button is pressed.
Silent - Radio will be carrier squelched in Monitor mode.
Latch Enable Tone
The monitor button may be momentarily pressed, or may be latched by pressing the monitor button for a short
period of time (Latch Enable Time). This option causes the radio to give a short beep each time the permanent
monitor function has been enabled. Permanent monitor is cancelled by pressing the monitor button again.
Factory default is Disabled.
Latch Enable Time (sec)
Values between 0.0 and 6.0 seconds may be selected in 0.5 second increments. Select Disable (0) to turn off
this option.
Smart PTT Retry Timer (ms)
Values between 0 and 5000 ms may be selected in 25 ms increments. When Smart PTT is enabled, this field
adjusts the period at which the radio will sample for a clear channel. Factory default is 275 ms.
Smart PTT Quick Key Timer (ms)
Values between 100 and 5000 ms may be selected in 100 ms increments. When smart PTT is enabled, a quick
key (double press) of the PTT button can override the feature and cause the radio to transmit although the
channel is busy. The timer determines the maximum amount of time between PTT presses, i.e., how fast the
user must press the PTT button to override. Factory default is 500 ms.
Hub Defeats PL
When HUB Defeats PL is enabled, PL/DPL will be disabled when the microphone is removed from the hang up
box. This allows for monitoring of a conventional channel to prevent transmitting during another conversation.
Factory default is Disabled.
Note
This feature is only applicable to portable radios when a Vehicular Adapter is used.
Direct Frequency Enabled
If the Direct Frequency flag is Enabled, the user can enter if the direct frequency in the conventional Personality
Screen (F4/F6/F3) and change it. Direct Frequency flag is Disabled and the direct frequency will be copied from
the conventional Rx frequency.
Last Number Redial
When this feature is Enabled, the last number that was dialed will appear on the display and transmit when PTT
is pressed.
When this feature is Disabled, the last number that was dialed will be cleared.
This feature is only available on MT2000 radios with R02.00 firmware or later. R02.00 was initially shipped in
October 1994. The factory default is Enabled.

Use the up/down arrow keys to enable Receive-only operation on this personality. If enabled, all transmissions
including signalling, are inhibited. The factory default for this field is Enabled.
Direct/Talkaround
Use the up/down arrow keys to enable Talkaround operation on this personality. In talkaround (or direct) mode,
the radio will transmit on the receive frequency. This is useful when a repeater is not in operation or is out of
range.
Talkaround may be used in a manual or automatic mode. In the manual mode, a talkaround switch must be
defined on the Radio Wide Button Switch menu (F4/F3/F3). The switch may be either on the top or side of the

Each personality may choose one of four different TOT values. The four values for the radio can be changed on
the Radio Wide Options screen (F4/F3/F2/F9).
The TOT determines the amount of time the radio can continuously transmit before the radio must be dekeyed.
When the time is about up the radio beeps and then stops transmitting.
The factory default is 60 sec.
Scan List
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select the Scan List to be used for this personality.
To change or view the scan list, select the Scan List screen (F4/F3/F5). Conventional personalities may use

FIELD DEFINITIONS:
MDC System
This is the number of the MDC system. Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to change the MDC system or directly
enter the system number.
Primary ID
Enter the primary unit ID in this field. It is a four digit number.
Enter a value or use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select Primary Identification Code from 1 to DEEE. The ID is
in a hexadecimal number. The digit F is not allowed in the ID.
The primary identification code (PID) indicates which unit on the network sent the message. All inbound
messages will be sent with this identification code.
Secondary ID
Enter a value or use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select Secondary Identification Code from 0 to 0EEE EEEE for
the terminal. This ID is a hexadecimal number. The digit F is not allowed in the ID.
This is the secondary ID assigned to the radio unit by the host. The secondary ID is related to the position of the
unit.
Variable ID
The Variable Unit ID is used to group radios so that several radios will decode the same selective call or call alert.
The variable unit ID is a three digit number from 0 to EEE. This ID is a hexadecimal number. The digit F is not
allowed in the ID.
On a system which uses fleets and groups the first digit of the variable ID represents the fleet, and the last two
digits of the ID represent the group. ie.
VID = FGG
I I
I -----------Group
--------Fleet
Leading PTT ID
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to enable or disable the UNIT IDENTIFICATION data packet transmission at the
BEGINNING of each transmission (BOT).
If the leading PTT ID feature is enabled, each time you press the microphone PTT, the radio automatically will
send the radio’s unit identification code to the dispatcher

CHANGE/VIEW
MTSX RSS
PTT ID Sidetone
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to enable or disable the PTT ID Sidetones. During the transmission of data
packets, the microphone and all voice transmission is automatically disabled. PTT ID Sidetones are used to
indicate when the data transmission is complete and you may begin talking.
If PTT ID Sidetones are enabled, a continuous alert tone will sound as soon as you press PTT and will continue
until the data packet(s) has been sent. You must wait until the tone stops before you begin talking
Trailing PTT ID
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to enable or disable the MDC UNIT IDENTIFICATION data packet transmission
at the END of each transmission (EOT).
If the trailing PTT ID feature is enabled, each time you release the microphone PTT, the radio automatically will
send the radio’s unit identification code to the dispatcher.
The PTT ID Sidetone will NOT sound for trailing PTT IDs.
Radio Check
Enabling this option allows the dispatcher to check the state of the radio (turned on or off), as long as the radio is
within the range of the system. (clear mode)
Radio Inhibit
This field indicates whether or not the Radio Inhibit feature is enabled.
Enabling this field allows the radio to respond to a remote inhibit command. Upon receipt of this command the
radio transmits an acknowledgement to the dispatch equipment; it then goes into a dormant state in which the
receiver audio is muted, the transmit audio path is blocked, all operator controls are rendered inoperative,
channel scan is stopped on the Radio Operating mode which received the command, and all LEDs are turned off.
The radio can be un-inhibited via sending a radio enable command or by reading and writing the codeplug with
the RSS.
Status
This field indicates whether or not the Status feature is enabled. The Status feature, when enabled, allows the
user to select and transmit a specific status from a list pre-programmed into the radio. A complete activation of
the Status feature therefore includes first enabling the feature and then programming the desired status list to be
made available to the user. Status list programming is performed by means of the Status Alias screen (MAIN
MENU-F4/F6/F9). The factory default is Disabled.
Status Request
This field indicates whether or not the Status Request feature is enabled. If Status Request is enabled, the radio
responds to a remote status interrogation with the last attempted status. Disabling the feature prohibits the radio
from responding to a remote status interrogation. The factory default is Disabled.
Message
This field indicates whether or not the Message feature is enabled. Message, when enabled, allows the user to
select and transmit a specific message, from a list pre-programmed into the radio. A complete activation of the
Message feature therefore includes first enabling the feature and then programming the desired list of messages
to be made available to the user. Message list programming is performed by means of the Message Alias screen

Emergency Type
Alarm Only- An emergency message is repeatedly sent to the base station until it is cancelled when all the
allowed retries (both polite and impolite) have been sent, or reception of an acknowledgement from
the base station, or the first PTT press, or a long press of the emergency button occurs.
Alarm and Call-An emergency message is repeatedly sent to the base station until either all the allowed retries
(both polite and impolite) have been sent or the radio receives an acknowledgement from the base
station. Once an acknowledgement is received from the base station, the user can talk to the base
station. An emergency PTT ID will be sent with the voice on each PTT press. The emergency call
is canceled by a long press of the emergency button.
Both types of emergency support reverting (transmitting emergency on a predetermined channel).
Acknowledge Alert Tone
Enable this option if you want an emergency acknowledge beep to be sounded when the radio receives
acknowledgement of its emergency call.
Revert Table
This is the Emergency Revert Channel table, which contains the channels pointed to in the conventional
personalities, where the radio reverts to when entering Emergency call mode. Enter the zone numbers and the
channel numbers in the table. Each MDC personality will select one of these channels or it may choose itself.
First create personalities, then go to the Zone/Channel Assignment screen and enter channel information and
you will be able to set the MDC emergency channels.
WARNING
The emergency revert channels MUST be conventional channels
which do not have Quik-Call II enabled, nor can they be receive-only.

FIELD DEFINITIONS:
MDC System
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to change the MDC system or directly enter the system number. Valid entries are
0 to 630ms in increments of 50ms.
System Pretime
This is the amount of pretime used before the first MDC packet is transmitted.
Preamble During Pretime
This is to enable preamble sequence transmission before voice transmissions.
Inter-Packet Time
The Inter-sequence pretime is the period of time between consecutive MDC messages. Valid entries are in the
range 0 to 6350 ms in steps of 50 ms increments. Due to the rounding that occurs when preamble during pretime
is enabled, the value shown may change by 50 ms when a codeplug is read from a radio or file. This is just in the
Radio Service Software, not the radio.
Limited Patience Time
This is the amount of time that transmission of a polite MDC signal will wait before sending out an impolite signal.
The range of values are 1-255 sec. and Infinite. The factory default is 60 seconds.
DOS (Data Squelch)
This enables the Data Operated Squelch feature. This keeps the radio from unmuting when data is being
received.
Operation
When this field is disabled, only the 1800 Hz criteria for Data Operated Squelch is needed. When enabled, then
both 1200 Hz and 1800 Hz signals are required for DOS. The factory default is 1200/1800 Hz.
Coast Time
This is the delay for which the audio will remain muted after the received MDC message is finished. Valid entries
are from 0 to 1134.75 in 4.45 ms increments.
Sel Call Reset
This determines how the Select Call mode is reset after receiving a Select Call and the radio has unmuted. The
radio will return from carrier squelch mode to select call packet required mode according to this field.
Auto resets the radio after the Sel Call Auto Reset timer has expired.
Auto w/carrier override resets the radio waits until the voice stops.
Both modes can be reset manually by pressing the monitor button.
Auto Reset Time
This is the time the radio will remain in carrier squelch mode after the radio has received a select call directed
to it. Once the auto reset time has expired, the radio will reset to the Select Call squelch mode. The valid range
of values are 1 to 255seconds. The factory default is 60 seconds.
Emergency Limited Patience Time
When the radio is in Emergency Call Mode, this is the amount of time (in seconds) the radio will wait before
impolitely sending voice if voice transmission is inhibited by the Emergency Priority Inhibit feature. The valid
range of values are 1 to 255seconds. The factory default is 5 seconds.

RAC (Repeater Access Code) :
Pretime (ms)
This is the amount of pretime used before the first MDC Repeater Access Code (RAC) packet is transmitted.
Valid entries are 0 to 6350 ms in steps of 50 ms.
The factory default is 200 ms.
Ack Alert Tone
If this field is enabled, when a Repeater Access Code (RAC) packet is transmitted, the repeater will indicate
acceptance of the packet by causing the radio to sound 4 beeps.
The factory default is Disabled.
Preambles
This is a view only field displaying the number of preambles before RAC packet is transmitted.
Sidetone
If this field is enabled, the radio will generate a sidetone upon Automatic Repeater Access Code transmission
to warn the user not to talk until the transmission is complete.
The factory default is Enabled.

CHANGE/VIEW
FIELD DEFINITIONS:
MDC System
This is the number of the MDC system. Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to change the system,
or directly enter the number of the system.
Remote Mon/Radio Trace
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to enable/disable the MDC Remote Monitor/Radio Trace
feature. When the MDC Remote Monitor/Radio Trace feature is enabled, the radio will be able
to decode an MDC Remote Monitor or Radio Trace command sent from the dispatch console.
After decoding this command, the radio will key-up its transmitter for a time period calculated
using the 'Tx Base Time' and another value embedded within the Remote Monitor/Radio Trace
command. The factory default is Disabled.
Remote Radio Mode
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select the MDC Decode Operation. The MDC Decode
Operation allows the radio to operate in one of two possible states when it decodes an MDC
Remote Monitor/Radio Trace command:
Radio Trace
- The radio will automatically key-up sending unmodulated carrier.
Remote Monitor - The radio will automatically key-up and unmute the microphone sending
voice on the channel.
Tx Base Time (sec)
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select the desired MDC Tx Base Time. The value may also
be entered directly. The MDC Tx Base Time is a value used to calculate the period that a radio
will key-up after receiving an MDC Remote Monitor/Radio Trace command. This Tx Base
Time is multiplied by a second value that is sent from the dispatch console and transmitted to
the radio via an MDC Remote Monitor/Radio Trace command. The range is from 10 to 120
seconds in 10 second increments.
Rx Base Time (sec)
Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select the desired MDC Tx Base Time. The value may also
be entered directly. The MDC Rx Base Time is a value used to calculate the period that a
radio will 'listen' after keying-up while it is in the Remote Monitor mode. This Rx Base Time is
multiplied by a second value that is sent from the dispatch console and transmitted to the
radio via a Remote Monitor/Radio Trace command. The range is from 10 to 120 seconds in 10
second increments.

This screen is used to edit Conventional MDC Call ID's and their associated names or aliases. The ID entries in
this table are stored in the radio and made available to the radio user in Selective Call or Call Alert operation. For
radio models capable of supporting multiple MDC Systems, the Call list defined here is made available to all
MDC Systems.
An MDC Call ID is either an Individual Call ID or a Group Call ID. The RSS interprets each entry which begins
with the hexadecimal digit `E' as a Group ID. Call IDs beginning with a digit other than `E' are treat
as Individual IDs.
NOTES
*A Call ID preceded by the hexadecimal digit 'E' is interpreted by the RSS as a Group
ID. IDs of the form 'Exxx' (where x implies any hex digit) should therefore be avoided
for Individual/Primary ID specification.
*Note also that the digit 'F' serves as a wildcard, so it can be strategically placed in a
Call ID to make it match other Call IDs, thus creating the effect of a group ID. 'FFFF' for
instance, would specify all radios in system.

FLASHPORT UPGRADE
SECTION 9. FLASHPORT UPGRADE
9.1 INTRODUCTION TO FLASHport
FLASHport is a revolutionary new method of upgrading the software in a subscriber radio. This involves
enabling new features downloading or FLASHing new software into the radio.
This section is a brief preview of FLASHport capabilities. A detailed procedure is obtained through the
FLASHport Users Manual (68P81077C65) that accompanies the software upgrade kit.
9.2 FLASHING PROCEDURE
“Flashing” or upgrading your radio requires the standard radio service software (RSS), which is used during
normal radio programming and servicing procedures. Refer to the “Getting Started” section for your radio’s
specific RSS part number. The following is a brief description of the FLASHport Upgrade Menu.
NOTE
The following RSS screens are shown as an example; your screens may vary slightly. The FLASHport path and key
titles (HELP, EXIT, FLASH RADIO, etc.) may be the same for portable and mobile radios, but the function keys may
be different.

FLASHport Upgrade is a multi-level menu that is used to view the radio’s configuration, to view the
FLASHkey’s contents, to upgrade the codeplug, and to FLASH the radio.
The HELP screen (F1) will guide you through the upgrade process, as well as the users manual that
accompanies the FLASHport Upgrade package.
FUNCTION KEY DESCRIPTIONS:
F1 - HELP provides useful information about the currently displayed menu, screen, or field.
F2 - VIEW RADIO CONFIGURATION displays the radio’s current system and enhancements prior to the
FLASHport upgrade. The displayed information is necessary at the time of ordering a FLASHport Upgrade
package by the subscriber. Because the FLASHport upgrade involves downloading new software to the
radio, the memory size of the radio’s controller board is also displayed in order to reveal possible memory
limitations for FLASHing the radio.
F3 - VIEW FLASHkey CONFIGURATION displays the contents of the FLASHkey you will receive after
purchasing a FLASHport Upgrade package. The FLASHkey CONFIGURATION screen displays such
information as the required FLASH software, number of purchased and remaining upgrades, and a side by
side comparison of the features currently enabled in the radio and the features which will be enabled in the
radio after FLASHing the radio.
F8 - UPGRADE RADIO will take you to the SELECT FLASH SOFTWARE screen which reads and displays the
name of the files that exist in the default directory for the FLASH Software. The user is asked to select the
FLASH Software file and press F8 in order to start the upgrade process.
F10 - EXIT moves the display backward in the RSS tree, one screen or menu at a time.

system management and billing purposes. ANI numbers may only be programmed by the
RSS and may not be changed in the field.
Announcement
Group
Grouping structure used in a Type II or Type IIi trunking system. An Announcement Group is
a large group of radio users that under normal circumstances coordinate actions among
themselves.
Archive file
A file containing the personality of a radio - the contents of the radio’s codeplug.
Archive File
Cloning
The procedure of merging the data from two codeplugs to pass on customer personalities
quickly from one radio to another. In the case of archive file cloning, the source of the
factory data is an archive file, and the source of the tuning data is the target radio.
Arrow keys
The cursor movement keys located on the numeric keypad. The up and down arrow keys
are used to increment and decrement values.
Asynchronous
Communication
A data communications method in which information is transmitted one
character at a time. A start bit precedes each character and a stop bit follows each
character.
Auto Affilliation
The ability of radios in a Type II or Type IIi system to automatically transmit their talkgroup
and unit ID information to the Central Controller. Affilliation occurs after the radio has locked
on to the control channel frequency. It does not require the radio user to press the PTT.
Automatic Retry
The ability of the portable radio to send up to 16 inbound signalling words in a four second
period, if the outbound signalling word is not received from the central controller after the
radio has made a request to transmit.
Backup File
A duplicate file of the archive file that is used in event that the original archive file becomes
damaged or erased.
Base Station
Identifier
(BSI) An identifier which is programmed into the central controller and sent out in Morse
code ID on the lowest frequency trunked repeater.
Blank Frequency
A channel that is not assigned a transmit frequency.
Blank PL Code
A channel that is not assigned a receive or transmit PL code.
Boot
To load the computer’s operating system.
Busy Channel
Lockout (BCL)
A feature on conventional modes that gives "listening privacy". The radio will not key
when there is a carrier on channel unless it is your PL/DPL group. Instead, you will hear a
busy tone while PTT is held. Also, you will not be allowed to monitor the channel. If all
users that share the channel have BCL enabled, then the users have a privacy similar to
what a trunked radio system provides.

user receives no indication of the poll, except perhaps a brief lighting of the transmit or busy
light.Radio Service Software purchased by Motorola product resellers through a license
agreement that is delivered on a 5 1/4" and 3 1/2" diskettes and used to program two-way
radios with a unique set of features, called personalities.
Read
The transfer of information from the radio codeplug to the computer's temporary memory
(RAM) via the RIB communication link.
Receive
Frequency
The center of the receive channel in MHz.
Recent User
Priority
The ability of the Motorola Central Controller to ensure uninterrupted communications to a
recent user of the trunked system. Recent User Priority ensures that a group engaged in a
conversation will get priority access even if there is a significant delay between
transmissions.
Repeater
An electric device with transmit and receive capabilities. A repeater will retransmit
information at 125, 70, or 35 Watts of power. A trunked repeater used in 800 MHz trunking
systems will typically have the transmit and receive frequencies separated 45 MHz
depending upon the original communications system configuration.
RIB
Radio Interface Box.- used to connect a computer system to a radio for the purpose of
communication between the radio and the computer. The RIB consist of level-shifting
circuits that convert from the standard RSS-232 voltage levels of the computer asynchronous
serial interface to the single-ended voltage levels present on the Serial Bus contacts of the
radio's feature connector. In conjunction with the RIB, an appropriate RIB-to-cable and RIBto-computer cable must be used.
Radio Interface
Cable
A cable that allows the radio to be connected (interfaced) with a computer for programming
or tuning.
RAM
Random Access Memory. The PC’s RAM is used to store the radio's codeplug data while it
is being viewed or modified. These changes will not become permanent in the radio’s
codeplug until the radio is programmed.
Read
The operation by which a radio’s codeplug information is transferred from the radio’s
EEPROM to the workspace via the RIB.
RSS
Radio Service Software
RSS-232
An asynchronous serial data transmission standard that defines the required sequencing,
and hardware interface.
Rx
Receiver
Save
The means by which a radio’s codeplug information is transferred from the workspace to a
personality file.
Screen
A list of functions that are accessed by pressing a function key.
Sub-directory
A subdivision of a directory that contains a group of related files. Sub-directories are used to
organize your disks.

GLOSSARY
Software
A list of instructions that tell the computer what to do.
Squelch
A radio circuit that eliminates noise from the speaker when a transmitted signal is not
present.
Sub-directories
A group of related files that are located on a hard disk or diskette. Sub-directories are used
to organize your disks.
SMARTNET
A type of trunking system primarily used in support of Public Safety and Industrial
communication systems. This type of system has emergency and dynamic regrouping
capabilities.
System Central
Controller
Referred to as Central Controller, is the heart of Motorola's trunking system. The Central
Controller is a software controlled, computer driven device that receives and generates data
for the trunked radios assigned to it. The Central Controller is responsible for monitoring and
directing the operations of the trunked repeaters.
System ID
A number assigned to a trunked system distinguishing it from other systems. The system ID
is sent out every 3 seconds on the Control Channel.
Talkaround
Frequency
A frequency used for simplex conversations or radio-to-radio communications without the
use of a repeater.
Talkback
Indicates that a call can be answered by pressing PTT and responding.
TalkGroup
A group of users in a Type II or Type IIi system.
Talk Permit Tone
A programmable brief series of beeps that provides the radio operator with an indication that
a voice channel is available and assigned to them.
Talk Prohibit
Tone
An audible tone (honk) heard from the radio's speaker when the PTT is depressed. The tone
will be heard when either the radio is out of range of the system, or the radio is programmed
with the incorrect system information.
Timeout timer
Time out timer limits the transmission period to a pre-defined time. The radio will
automatically stop transmitting when the time period expires and the radio will generate an
alert tone to notify the user that no transmission is taking place.TPL Tone Private Line
coded squelch. A channel that has TPL on the receive frequency will require both the
presence of carrier as well as the correct TPL code before it will unmute. Also, if you have
TPL on the transmit frequency, all transmissions on that channel will be modulated at a subaudible level with the TPL code. Modulation is continuous.
TOT
Time Out Timer
Transmission
Trunking
Upon releasing the PTT the radio will return to monitor the Control Channel If the user
desires to initiate another call.
Trunk
A communications path
Trunking
The automatic sharing of communications paths between a large number of users.
Type I
A type of trunking that is composed of Fleets and Subfleets, and limited by the size of codes
of those groups. A type I system handshaking includes sending of the Acknowledge tone
and High Speed Handshake.

Type II
A type of trunking system that is composed of Announcement Groups and Talkgroups. A
Type II system is limited on talkgroups and individual ID combinations to 48,000 IDs and
4,000 talkgroups per system. The Type II system handshaking does not include sending
Acknowledge tone and High Speed Handshake.
Type IIi
A type of trunking system composed of Fleets, Subfleets, and Talkgroups. This trunking type
supports both Type I and Type II handshaking. This trunking type allows Type I radios to
communicate with Type II radios on the same voice channel.
Transmit
Deviation
Alignment
An electronic method of adjusting the modulation of the transmitter to a constant value
across the operating frequency range.
Tree
Tx
A way to describe the organization of the RSS. The Main menu is considered the trunk and
the the functions listed on the screen are considered the branches.
Transmit.
Unit ID
The electronic tuning/alignment information of a particular radio.
Universal ID
A particular personality in a radio unit which is chosen as the one whose trunking identity will
always be used to address this unit. In this manner, a unit would respond to an individual
call (Private Call, Call Alert, Phone Interconnect, etc.) regardless of the current personality
chosen.
User-Scan
Scan type which is programmable through the front panel buttons on the radio.
Voice Channel
A trunked repeater that is used to transmit and receive data and voice from the radios on the
system.
Wide Area Call
A call in a wide area coverage system which utilizes a voice channel in all sites of the
system.
