1 Introduction
Welcome to eXtreme Radio Service (eXRS). TriSquare has
revolutionized 2-way radio communications with the eXRS
radios. What is eXRS? It uses a stealth military technology
redesigned by TriSquare for general use and operates using
Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology in
the 900MHz ISM frequency band. eXRS radios provide
private and secure communications without interference,
and provide the longest range possible, compared to other
UHF radios*. With advanced digital technology, you get
unmatched clarity and years of trouble-free service. eXRS
radios do NOT require an FCC license and can be used by
people of all ages for any personal or business purpose.
*The usable range of eXRS is equivalent to or greater than that of other portable
UHF two-way radios (including FRS/GMRS). Usable range of UHF radios
varies significantly with the conditions of use. For example with large or many
obstructions between users, range could be less than a mile, and with clear (lineof-sight) between users, range could extend to more than one hundred miles.
2 Getting Started
Thank you for purchasing the TriSquare TSX300 eXRS twoway radio. Your TriSquare eXRS radio is a unique two-way
radio and a powerful communications tool that will give you
years of trouble-free service if cared for properly. Read the
owners manual carefully before operating the radio.
2.1 Installing Batteries or Rechargeable Battery Pack
To use your new TriSquare eXRS radios, you will need to
install 3 ‘AA’ alkaline batteries, or the optional TriSquare
model TSX-BP NiMH rechargeable battery pack. To install
batteries, first remove the belt clip or swivel the belt clip to the
side. To open the battery compartment door, while holding
the radio face down, use your thumbnail to lift upwards
(towards the top of the radio) on the battery compartment
tab, and continue to lift the battery compartment door up
and remove. If you are using 3 ‘AA’ batteries, insert the
3 ‘AA’ with the correct polarity as indicated by the battery
diagram on the inside of the battery compartment, matching
the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals of the batteries to
4
TriSquare Electronics Corporation
Model TSX100
the battery diagram. If you are using the optional TriSquare
NiMH rechargeable battery pack TSX-BP, insert the battery
Owner’s Manual
pack into the battery compartment
with the label side up, and
the up arrow pointing towards the top of the radio. Replace
the battery compartment door by sliding the top tabs in first
at an angle until it is all the way up, and then pressing down
at the bottom until the battery compartment door locking tab
clicks into place securing the door closed. Replace belt clip
if desired.
2.2 Initial Radio Setup
To turn your radio on (after installing batteries per above),
press and hold the POWER On/Off button for 2 seconds. The
radio will go through an initialization cycle showing eXRS on
the display, and the power on confirmation tone will sound.
Once powered up, the radio will be in a stand-by mode,
ready to transmit or receive a transmission on the default
channel “0” or ready for you to modify or change features
via the MENU button (Softkey #2). All radio settings and stored
contact information are maintained when radio is off and
batteries are removed.

3 Basic Radio Functions
3.1 Transmit and Receive
The unit is normally in standby / receive mode. To transmit,
hold the radio approximately 2 to 3 inches in front of your
face and press and hold the PTT button for the duration of
your transmission. Speak clearly in a normal voice tone. The
radio will transmit on the channel currently shown on the
display. Only radios set to the same Group Channel can
receive the transmission. When the PTT button is released,
the unit will return to stand-by / receive mode. “TRANSMIT
TO” and the Channel will be visible on the LCD during the
transmission. “RECEIVE” will be visible on the LCD when
a valid signal is being received, as well as the Caller ID if
applicable.
NOTE: eXRS radios are high technology frequency hopping spread spectrum
radios. During communications they automatically hop from frequency to
frequency in sync with each other. This prevents scanners and other surveillance
equipment from eavesdropping on communications.In the unlikely event that
your radios are on the same channel and you cannot communicate, your radios
may not be properly synced for frequency hopping. A simple way to ensure
6
TriSquare Electronics Corporation
proper synchronization is to re-select or re-enter the contact/channel on the
affected radios.
3.2 Menu System and Softkeys
The keys on the top right and top left of the radio keypad
are Softkeys (Softkey #1 and Softkey #2), and their function
corresponds with what is on the bottom corners of the LCD
display. Thus, the function of these two buttons change,
depending on what menu or function you are working in, and
what the LCD display shows for the key function at any given
time. When standing by on the main screen, the functions of
these two softkeys are “CONTACTS” and “MENU”. From here,
these buttons are used to retrieve the Contacts list and access
the radio’s Menu System.
3.3 Volume Control / Up/Down Scrolling Button
While on the Main screen, Press the UP (p) and DOWN (q)
button to control the volume in 15 steps. The display will
indicate “Volume” and the current volume level for 2 seconds.
An audio chime will also indicate current volume level. All
key beeps will be at the set volume level. While in the
Contacts and Menu functions, this button is used to scroll Up
or Down through the Contact list or Menu options.
3.4 Low Battery Alert
The TSX300 has a 4-level battery meter (shown below) on the
LCD that will graphically emulate the remaining batter power.
At the lowest level, the Battery Low Icon will flash and an
audible beep will sound every two minutes.
Battery
Battery
Battery
Battery
Full
Strong
Low
Weak
When the low battery meter is at the lowest level, batteries
should be replaced, or recharged if using the TriSquare TSXBP NiMH rechargeable battery pack.
3.5 Call / Back (t) Button Functions
When on the Main screen, this button acts as the Call button
to signal other users, and while in any Menus or Texting, it
7
acts as a (t)
Back button.
o 3.5.1 CALL Function - Press the Call button to send a call alert
to other users on the same Channel. The radio will transmit a call
on the Channel that is currently showing on the display. A radio
that receives the call will play a preselected ring tone. It is not
necessary to send a call before transmitting your voice to another
user on the same Channel.
o 3.5.2 BACK Function - When navigating the Menu Systems or
Contacts, the (t) Back button usually moves back to a previous
menu. When entering characters for Contacts or text messaging,
the (t) Back button moves the cursor back one space.
3.6 Keypad Lock / Next (u) Button Functions
When on the Main screen, this button acts as the Keypad
Lock button, and while in the Contacts menu or while text
messaging, this button acts as a (u) Next button.
o 3.6.1 LOCK Function - Pressing and holding the Lock
button for 3 seconds will lock the radio keys, with the exception
of the PTT, Power On/Off, Call button and Volume Up/Down
button. The Lock icon ( ) will be displayed on the LCD display
and an audible tone will sound when keypad is locked. Pressing
and holding the Lock button again for 3 seconds will unlock the
keypad and the Lock icon will disappear and another audible tone
will be heard.
o 3.6.2 NEXT Function - While entering characters for Contacts
or text messaging, use of the (u) Next button will move the cursor
to the right one space.
4 Other Radio Functions and Features
4.1 CHANNEL Selection
All of the TriSquare eXRS radios are set from the factory to
channel “0”. The TSX300 has the capability of 10 Billion
channels. You can input any 10-digit channel number
between 0 and 9999999999, for 10 Billion unique
channels. All eXRS radios will communicate with other eXRS
radio provided that they are set to the same Channel. It is
suggested that you enter a new channel unique to you into
the MY RADIO part of memory (detailed below), and for
simplicity where appropriate, the user may use their area
code and phone number, or some part of it. You can enter a
Group channel from the main screen, or may select one from
the Contacts List.

From the main Screen in Figure 1, simply enter the desired
channel directly on the numeric keypad. For example, if you
want to enter channel “1234”, the screen would appear as in
Figure 2. Once entered, press the Softkey #1 that corresponds
to the selection “OK”. The radio will then be on that channel,
and the display will appear as in Figure 3. You can then

4.2 CONTACTS
The Contacts List is where Channels may be stored so they
can be recalled later. The TSX300 can store up to 100
entries. The first contact in the list will be the radio’s ID (MY
RADIO). All other contacts are stored in alphabetical order.
My Radio contains the radio’s “Private Channel” number (10000
or higher) and the Caller ID name for the radio. The last item in
the contacts list is the menu selection to “ADD NEW” contacts.
The TSX300 can store a name associated with each stored
number. The name can be up to 8 characters long. The stored
information in Contacts will be retained with power off and/
or batteries removed.
CONTACTS - To enter the CONTACTS menu, Press the Softkey
#1 that corresponds with CONTACTS (per Figure 4) on the
display to enter the Contacts menu. The screen in Figure 5
will appear.

Pressing the UP (p) and DOWN (q) button will scroll through
the list of up to 100 previously stored Contact names.
Scrolling will wrap from the end to the beginning of the list
and vice versa.
o 4.2.1 MY RADIO / CALLER ID – Your MY RADIO information
has 3 useful purposes.
1. It allows you to personalize your radio by entering your
desired name and Personal/Private channel into the MY
RADIO memory.
2. Second, this information also acts as your Caller ID. When
you transmit to other TSX300 users, the Caller ID information
is sent. When the TSX300 receives a transmission from other
TSX300s, it will display the ID from that radio (provided that
user has entered an ID into MY RADIO). If the reception is from
a TSX100, or from a radio with no ID entered, your display
will show “RECEIVE”, with no Caller ID information. The Caller
ID will continue to be shown on the display while receiving
from that person, and for 5 seconds after unless a different
Caller ID is received.
3. It allows other users to contact you on your Private Channel,
regardless of what channel you are on at that moment. When
you provide your MY RADIO information to other users, they
can contact you directly via your Private Channel. The radio
receiver always monitors your MY RADIO channel, regardless
of what channel you are on (except while actually transmitting
or receiving on the other channel). Because of this feature,
your radio has “CALL WAITING” when called on your Private
Channel, and will be described below under the Private Channel description.
The ID may be up to 8 alpha/numeric characters in length, and
your Private Channel may be any number between 10000 and
9999999999.
To set your MY RADIO’s information, from the Main Screen,
press CONTACTS, Softkey #1 (Figure 4) to get into the CONTACTS menu. With “MY RADIO” highlighted, press Softkey
#1 labeled as “SETUP” (per Figure 6 , provided you have not
already entered information here previously) to enter your personalized information that is in your MY RADIO (the screen in Figure
7 will appear).
NOTE: If you have already stored information here for MY
RADIO, you would press VIEW, CHANGE per FIGURES 11 and
12 to change.
Using the keypad, first enter your name, or the ID name you
wish to have for your radio. The name can be up to 8 characters
long. Since the letters and numbers share the same key on the
radio keypad (like a phone), you will need to press certain buttons
10
TriSquare Electronics Corporation
repeatedly to get the letters you want. For example, to enter the
name “JOHN”, you will need to press the keys in this sequence, 5
once, 6 three times, 4 twice, and 6 twice. After each letter entry,
the cursor will move one character right by one of three ways: 1)
Not pressing a button for 2 seconds, 2) press a different alphanumeric key, or 3) you can use the (u) key to move the cursor.
When you have completed the name entry (as in Figure 8),
press DONE button (Softkey #2) to move to the channel entry
screen as in Figure 9.

NOTE: MY RADIO channel is always a PRIVATE CHANNEL, as
opposed to a GROUP CHANNEL. The functions and use of Private
Channels and Group Channels are detailed later in this manual.
Operational Scenario: If you have multiple radios
all with the same MY RADIO channel (with different
Caller ID Names), this will effectively act as a private
group channel.
o 4.2.2 GROUP CHANNEL – A Group Channel may be used
to communicate between 2 or more people, and is not associated
with your MY RADIO entry, or another radio’s MY RADIO entry.
A Group Channel may be any channel from 0 to 9999999999.
All channels entered through the Contacts Menu are entered as
Group Channels. All eXRS radios on the same Group Channel
can communicate with other eXRS radios on the same channel.
To add a new Group Channel entry into your contact list, press
CONTACTS on the Main Screen (Softkey #1) to enter the CONTACTS menu, and scroll UP (p) or DOWN (q) to highlight
the [ADD NEW] function (as in figure 13) and press SELECT
(Softkey #1). The screen in figure 14 will appear. NOTE: If you
have many entries within your Contacts list, you may scroll up to
get to the ADD NEW function quicker which is at the bottom of the
list.
Enter the name of the new GROUP contact.
-
Press DONE (Softkey #2 in Figure 15), and the screen in

o 4.2.3 PRIVATE CHANNEL – A Private Channel is any Channel
associated with another radio’s MY RADIO channel. A Private
Channel is used to contact specific radios regardless of what channel the radios you are trying to contact are on. Private Channels
are entered into the Contacts list through the Settings Menu, which
is detailed later in this manual under SETTINGS.
o 4.2.3.1 PRIVATE CALL – When you receive a call on your
Private Channel, your display will indicate a PRIVATE CALL is
being received (Figure 25a). (Exception, if you are on the Private
Channel of the call coming into your Private Channel, it would
then appear as a standard signal reception).
o 4.2.3.2 CALL WAITING – If it has been within 20 seconds
since your last TX or RX on a channel (not your own Private
Channel) and someone attempts to contact you on your Private
Channel, you will get a Call Waiting screen (Figure 25b). You can
either ACCEPT (Softkey #1) the call to start a new conversation,
or EXIT (Softkey #2) and continue with the existing conversation
on the channel you are on. NOTE: Pressing the PTT button will
transmit on the existing channel that you are on. Therefore you
may continue with your previous conversation (TX or RX) and will
have up to fifteen seconds to accept the call waiting.

8.3 Safety Information for eXRS Radios
Your wireless handheld portable transceiver contains a low
35
power transmitter. When the PTT button is pushed, it sends
out radio frequency (RF) signals. The device is authorized
to operate at a duty factor not to exceed 50%. In August
1996, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC)
adopted RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for
handheld wireless devices.
Important:
To maintain compliance with the FCC’s RF guidelines, hold
the transmitter at least 2 inches (5 centimeters) from your face
and speak in a normal voice, with the antenna pointed up
and away. If you wear the handset on your body while using
the headset accessory, use only the TriSquare supplied belt
clip for this product and ensure that the antenna is at least
1 inch (2.5 centimeters) from your body while transmitting.
If the distance between the antenna and the body is LESS
THAN 1.0” (2.5 cm), do not use this device in the body worn
configuration. Use only the supplied antenna. Unauthorized
antennas, modifications, or attachments will void any
warranty, and could damage the transmitter and may violate
FCC regulations.
Normal Position:
Hold the transmitter approximately 2” from your face and
speak in a normal voice, with the antenna pointed up and
away.
