General Radio Operation
Receive / Transmit
Radio users who switch from analog to digital radios often assume
that the lack of static on a digital channel is an indication that the radio
is not working properly. This is not the case. Digital technology quiets
the transmission by removing the “noise” from the signal and allowing
only the clear voice or data information to be heard.
This section emphasizes the importance of knowing how to monitor a
channel for traffic before keying up to send a transmission.
Without Using Volume Set and Monitor Buttons
1
Turn the radio on and select
the desired zone and
channel.
2
Listen for a transmission.
3
Adjust the Volume Control
knob if necessary.
4
Press and hold the PTT
button to transmit. The LED
lights RED while
transmitting.
5

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

Dynamic Regrouping (Trunking Only)
The dynamic regrouping feature lets the dispatcher temporarily
reassign selected radios to a single special channel so they can
communicate with each other. This feature is typically used during
special operations and is enabled by a qualified radio technician. You
will not notice whether your radio has this feature enabled until a
dynamic regrouping command is sent by the dispatcher.
Note: If you try to access a zone or channel that has been reserved
by the dispatcher as a dynamically regrouped mode for other

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

Helpful Tips
Battery
Battery Life
Battery life is determined by several factors. Among the more critical
are the regular overcharge of batteries and the average depth of
discharge with each cycle. Typically, the greater the overcharge and
the deeper the average discharge, the fewer cycles a battery will last.
For example, a battery which is overcharged and discharged 100%
several times a day, will last fewer cycles than a battery that receives
less of an overcharge and is discharged to 50% per day. Further, a
battery which receives minimal overcharging and averages only 25%
discharge, will last even longer.
Charging the Battery
Motorola batteries are designed specifically to be used with a
Motorola charger and vice-versa. Charging in non-Motorola
equipment may lead to battery damage and void the battery warranty.
Motorola-authorized battery chargers may not charge batteries other
than the ones listed on page 49.
The battery should be at about 77°F (25°C) (room temperature),
whenever possible. Charging a cold battery (below 50° F [10°C]) may
result in leakage of electrolyte and ultimately in failure of the battery.
Charging a hot battery (above 95°F [35°C]) results in reduced
discharge capacity, affecting the performance of the radio. Motorola
rapid-rate battery chargers contain a temperature-sensing circuit to
ensure that batteries are charged within the temperature limits stated
above.
Battery Charge Status
Your radio can indicate your battery’s charge status through LED and
sounds.
When your battery is low:
•
you see the LED flash red when the PTT button is pressed
•
you hear a low-battery “chirp” (short, high-pitched tone)

Battery Recycling and Disposal
Nickel-cadmium (NiCd) rechargeable batteries can be recycled.
However, recycling facilities may not be available in all areas. Under
various U.S. state laws and the laws of several other countries, NiCd
batteries must be recycled and cannot be disposed of in landfills or
incinerators. Contact your local waste management agency for
specific requirements and information in your area.
Motorola fully endorses and encourages the recycling of NiCd
batteries. In the U.S. and Canada, Motorola participates in the
nationwide Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC)
program for NiCd battery collection and recycling. Many retailers and
dealers participate in this program.
For the location of the drop-off facility closest to you, access RBRC's
Internet web site at www.rbrc.com or call 1-800-8-BATTERY. This
internet site and telephone number also provide other useful
information concerning recycling options for consumers, businesses,
and governmental agencies.

Glossary
This glossary is a list of specialized terms used in this manual.
ACK
Acknowledgment of communication.
Active Channel
A channel that has traffic on it.
Analog Signal
An RF signal that has a continuous nature
rather than a pulsed or discrete nature.
ASTRO 25 Trunking
Motorola standard for wireless digital
trunked communications.
ASTRO
Conventional
Motorola standard for wireless analog or
digital conventional communications.
Autoscan
A feature that allows the radio to
automatically scan the members of a scan
list.
Call Alert
Privately page an individual by sending an
audible tone.
Carrier Squelch
Feature that responds to the presence of an
RF carrier by opening or unmuting (turning
on) a receiver’s audio circuit. A squelch
circuit silences the radio when no signal is
being received so that the user does not
have to listen to “noise.”
Central Controller
A software-controlled, computer-driven
device that receives and generates data for
the trunked radios assigned to it. It monitors
and directs the operations of the trunked
repeaters.
Channel
A group of characteristics such as transmit/
receive frequency pairs, radio parameters,
and encryption encoding.
Control Channel
In a trunking system, one of the channels
that is used to provide a continuous, twoway/data communications path between the
central controller and all radios on the
system.

Glossary
Conventional
Typically refers to radio-to-radio
communications, sometimes through a
repeater (see Trunking).
Conventional Scan
List
A scan list that includes only conventional
channels.
Digital Private Line
(DPL)
A type of coded squelch using data bursts.
Similar to PL except a digital code is used
instead of a tone.
Digital Signal
An RF signal that has a pulsed, or discrete,
nature, rather than a continuous nature.
Dispatcher
An individual who has radio system
management duties.
Dynamic Regrouping A feature that allows the dispatcher to
temporarily reassign selected radios to a
single special channel so they can
communicate with each other.
Failsoft
A feature that allows communications to
take place even though the central controller
has failed. Each trunked repeater in the
system will transmit a data word informing
every radio that the system has gone into
failsoft.
FCC
Federal Communications Commission.
Hang Up
Disconnect.
KVL
Key-variable loader: A device for loading
encryption keys into the radio.
LED
Light-emitting diode.
Monitor
Check channel activity by pressing the
Monitor button. If the channel is clear, you
will hear static. If the channel is in use, you
will hear conversation. It also serves as a
way to check the volume level of the radio,
since the radio will “open the squelch” when
pressing the monitor button.

conversation with another radio user in the
group.
Private Line (PL)
A sub-audible tone that is transmitted such
that only receivers decoding the tone will
receive it.
Programmable
Refers to a radio control that can have a
radio feature assigned to it.
PTT
Push-To-Talk — the PTT button engages
the transmitter and puts the radio in transmit
(send) operation when pressed.
Radio Frequency
(RF)
The part of the general frequency spectrum
between the audio and infrared light regions
(about 10 kHz to 10,000,000 MHz).
Repeater
A conventional radio feature, where you talk
through a receive/transmit facility that retransmits received signals, in order to
improve communications range and
coverage.

individual, intended to provide privacy and
to eliminate the annoyance of having to
listen to conversations of no interest to you.
Selective Switch
Any digital P25 traffic having the correct
Network Access Code and the correct
talkgroup.
Squelch
Special electronic circuitry, added to the
receiver of a radio, that reduces, or cuts off,
unwanted signals before they are heard in
