Introduction
Basic Radio Features
Welcome to the Motorola MTS 2000 FLASHport TM portable radio. MTS
2000 radios are sophisticated, state-of-the-art communication units, with 16- and
160-mode models available in VHF, UHF, 800 MHz, or 900 MHz frequency
ranges. Pioneering the latest technology in radio electronics, Motorola MTS 2000
radios provide features that were once only available in more expensive radios.
Intelligent and flexible software increases the radio’s capability, decreases the
radio's physical size, and permits many of the radio's features to be customized
just for you.
FLASHport
Your MTS 2000 portable radio utilizes Motorola’s revolutionary FLASHport
technology. This allows your radio’s capabilities to be flexible, because FLASHport
makes it possible to add software that drives these capabilities both at the time of
purchase and later on. Previously, changing a radio’s features and capabilities
meant significant modifications, or buying a new radio. But now, similar to how a
computer can be loaded with different software, your radio’s features and
capabilities can be upgraded with software.
FLASHport allows you to add software to your radio as your needs change
and as technology advances, making your radio investment go further.
FLASHport is the future of radio communications, and it’s yet another
example of Motorola’s commitment to your satisfaction.
Inspection and Unpacking
Inspect the shipping carton for any signs of
damage. Remove and check the contents to be
sure that all ordered items have been shipped.

Antennas
Radio/Antenna Identification
An information label is attached to the back of your radio (chassis), just under
the battery contacts. A radio model number is identified on this label. A typical
model number might be H01SDC9AA1AN. The fourth position of the model number
(in this case “S”) identifies the operating frequency band of the radio. The Radio
Operating-Frequency Char t lists all four th-position alpha characters and
corresponding frequency band.

Antennas are frequency sensitive and are color coded according to the
frequency range of the antenna. The color code indicator is the insulator in the
center of the base of the antenna. The following illustrations and chart will help
identify the antenna, antenna frequency range, and corresponding color code.
Refer to the Radio Operating-Frequency Chart and the Antenna Identification
Chart to ensure that the match between your radio and antenna is correct.

HOME
A unique feature of the MTS 2000 radio is its use
of the display to give you quick access to many of the
radio’s features without having to have a dedicated
mechanical key for each feature.
The names of the features (CALL, MUTE, etc.)
are shown on the display, three at a time, with key-like
outlines to make them look like keys.
Selection of features is controlled by the three
keys directly below the feature names: the left key
controls the left feature, the middle key controls the
middle feature, and the right key controls the right
feature.
Left and Right Arrow Keys
The left ( ) and right ( ) arrow keys are used to scroll the display forward or
backward through the radio’s features and lists. There is no end point to the list, so
if you continue to scroll in one direction, the display will “wrap around” back to the
beginning of the list. If you hold either key down, the display will scroll at a faster rate
until the key is released.
The left arrow key is also used for editing when you are entering information
manually from the keypad. Pressing the left arrow key will backspace, and erase the
display, one character at a time. If you have erased all the digits, an additional press
of the left arrow key will return the display to the preprogrammed list.
HOME Key
The HOME key will always return you to the home (default) display. In most
cases, this is the current zone/mode. In addition, if you are using a feature that
requires it, pressing the HOME key will also cause information to be saved in
memory before going to the home display. Some radio features will automatically go
to the home display when they are completed, without having to press the HOME
key, thus reducing the number of keypresses required.

Display
The MTS 2000 radio has a 14-character, one-line liquid-crystal display (LCD),
which displays either alphanumeric messages or feature information. Above the
character displays are eight status annunciators that indicate some of the radio’s
operating conditions
Display Light
If poor light conditions make the display difficult to read, turn on the radio’s
display backlight by pressing the light button (normally side button 1). This light will
remain on for a preprogrammed time period before it turns off automatically, or
you can turn it off immediately by pressing the light button again (the light can be
turned off only if the radio is not in a feature menu). If, while the light is on, any
key or button is pressed (except for side button 3 and the PTT switch), any knob
is turned, or any toggle switch is moved, the light will remain on for an additional
time period.
Status Annunciators
The status annunciators indicate the status of certain radio functions:
•
Battery Status (
•
Carrier Squelch (
) – Indicates when the active conventional mode is being
monitored in the carrier squelch mode; ON = BEING MONITORED/
OFF = NOT BEING MONITORED.
) – Flashes when the battery is low.
•
SECURENET Operation (
) – For SECURENET-equipped radios, appears
either when the transmit mode you have selected has been preprogrammed
for SECURENET operation, or when the mode you have selected has been
preprogrammed for selectable operation and the two-position concentric
switch is in the SECURENET (
) position; ON = SECURENET
TRANSMISSION/OFF = CLEAR TRANSMISSION.
•
Call Received (
•
Scan (
) – Indicates when the radio is scanning; ON = SCANNING/OFF =
NOT SCANNING.
•
Priority Scan (
) – The presence of a dot along with the scan annunciator
indicates the receiving of a priority mode; FLASHING DOT = PRIORITY
1/SOLID DOT = PRIORITY 2.
•
Programming Mode (
) – Indicates when the radio is in the programming
mode; ON = IN PROGRAMMING MODE/OFF = NOT IN PROGRAMMING
MODE.
•
Direct (
) – Indicates whether you are talking directly to another radio
(talkaround), or through a repeater; ON = DIRECT/OFF = REPEATER.
) – Flashes when a call or page is received.

Getting Started (cont.)
Alert Tone Indications
The MTS 2000 radio generates a number of audible tones to indicate radio
operating conditions:
•
Low Battery – A low-battery condition is indicated by a high-pitched, cricket-like
“chirp-chirp” when the PTT switch is released following a transmission.
•
Successful Power-Up – A short, medium-pitched tone when the radio is first
turned on indicates that the radio has passed its power-up self test and is
ready for use.
•
Unsuccessful Power-Up – A short, low-pitched tone when the radio is first
turned on indicates that the radio has failed its power-up self test and is not
ready for use. Contact your service representative for service.
•
Transmit on Receive-Only Mode – If you press the PTT switch while tuned to a
“receive-only” mode, you will hear a continuous, low-pitched alert tone,
indicating that no transmission is possible on this mode. This tone will continue
until the PTT switch is released.
•
Transmit Inhibit on Busy Mode – If you press the PTT switch while the mode is
busy, you will hear a continuous, low-pitched alert tone, indicating that no
transmission is possible on this mode. This tone will continue until the PTT
switch is released.
•
Invalid Mode – A continuous, low-pitched tone is heard when an invalid or
unprogrammed operation is attempted on the radio.
•
Valid (Good) Key Press – A short, medium-pitched tone when a keypad key is
pressed indicates that the key press was accepted.
•
Invalid (Bad) Key Press – A short, low-pitched tone when a keypad key is
pressed indicates that the key press was rejected.
•
Emergency Alarm Entry – A short, medium-pitched tone when the emergency
button is pressed indicates that the radio has entered the emergency mode.
•
Emergency Alarm/Call Exit – A continuous, medium-pitched tone when the
radio is in the emergency mode indicates that the radio has exited the
emergency mode.
•
Failsoft (Trunked Systems Only) – A faint “beeping” tone every ten seconds
indicates that the radio is operating in the failsoft mode.
•
Time-Out Timer Warning – Your radio’s time-out timer limits the length of your
transmission time. When you are pressing the PTT switch (transmitting), a
short, low-pitched warning tone will sound four seconds before the allotted
time will expire.
•
Time-Out Timer Timed-Out – If you hold down the PTT switch longer than the
time-out timer’s allotted time, a continuous, low-pitched tone will sound,
indicating that your transmission has been cut off. This tone will continue until
the PTT switch is released.
•
Phone Busy – A “bah-bah-bah-bah” tone when telephone interconnect is
accessed indicates that all available modes are busy and the radio is in queue
for the next available phone line.

Getting Started (cont.)
Alert Tone Indications (cont.)
•
Call Alert™ (Page) Received – A group of four medium-pitched tones every five
seconds indicates that your radio has received a Call Alert page.
•
Call Aler t™ (Page) Sent – A single medium-pitched tone (central
acknowledge), followed by a group of four medium-pitched tones indicates that
a Call Alert page sent by your radio has been received by the target radio.
•
Private Conversation™ Call Received – A group of two medium-pitched tones
(800MHz radios only) indicates that your radio has received a Private
Conversation call. For all other frequency radios and for enhanced Private
Conversation, this sequence will be repeated ever y five seconds for
approximately 20 seconds
•
Trunked System Busy (Trunked Systems Only) – A “bah-bah-bah-bah” tone
when a trunked system is accessed indicates that all available modes are busy
and the radio is in queue for the next available mode.
•
Call Back (Trunked Systems Only} – A group of three medium-pitched tones
(di-di-dit) indicates that a talkgroup is now available for your previously
requested transmission.
•
Keyfail (SECURENET-Equipped Radios Only) – Indicates when there is a
problem with transmitting in encrypted (SECURENET) operation, due to loss
of the encryption key. If programmed and the key is lost or erased, a group of
six beeps sounds immediately. In addition, if the two-position concentric
switch is in the SECURENET (
) position: (a) if programmed, and the PTT
switch is not being pressed, the radio will sound six beeps every 5 to 10
seconds, or (b) if the PTT switch is being pressed , the radio will sound
continuous beeps until the PTT switch is r eleased, after which (if
programmed) it will sound six beeps every 5 to 10 seconds. This will continue
until the two-position concentric switch is moved to the clear (
) position, a
clear-only mode is selected, or the key is reloaded.
•
•
Consecutive medium-pitched tones during a secure transmission
indicate that there is a problem with encrypted (SECURENET)
operation due to loss of the encryption key.
•
Six medium-pitched tones every 5 to 10 seconds while the radio is
not transmitting also serve as a reminder that there is a problem
with encrypted (SECURENET) operation. The keyfail reminder will
sound when the radio is in clear-only operation, which can be
selected either by switching to a preprogrammed clear-only mode
or by moving the two-position concentric switch to the clear (
)
position on a secure-/clear-selectable mode.
•
Six medium-pitched tones when the radio is first turned on also
indicate that there is a problem with encrypted (SECURENET)
operation.
•
Keyfail tones will not sound once the key has been reloaded.
Clear Operation (SECURENET-Equipped Radios Only) – If the radio is so
programmed, one beep immediately after the PTT switch is pressed will
indicate that your transmission is clear (non-encrypted).

Time-Out Timer
The time-out timer feature limits the amount of time that you can continuously
transmit on a mode. If you hold down the PTT switch longer than the allotted time:
•
A pre-aler t warning tone will be generated four seconds before
termination of your transmission to warn you that your conversation is
about to be cut off.
•
Four seconds later your transmission is terminated and an alert tone is
emitted until the PTT is released.
Conventional or Trunked Radio Operation
Your MTS 2000 radio is capable of both conventional and trunked operation:
•
Conventional Operation – During conventional operation, your MTS 2000
radio performs like a conventional two-way radio. That is, you must monitor the
selected mode before transmitting (by checking the LED for mode busy [blinks

Basic Radio Operation
Radio On/Off; Power-Up
1.
Turn the radio on by rotating the volume control
clockwise. The radio goes through a power-up self
check and, if it passes the check, the display
momentarily shows “SELF TEST.” A good-powerup, high-pitched tone sounds to indicate that the
radio has passed the self check.
If the radio fails the self check, the display shows
“ E R R O R X X / X X” ( w h e r e X X / X X i s a n
alphanumeric error code), accompanied by a badpower-up, low-pitched tone. Turn the radio off,
check the battery, and turn the radio back on. If
the radio still does not pass the self check, a
problem exists in the radio. Contact your nearest
Motorola Service Shop.
Note: The power-up self check verifies that the
radio’s microprocessor -based systems are
working, but it does not check all of the rf
components, nor does it check the operation of
all customer-specific features. Motorola
recommends that the functionality of the radio be
periodically checked by an authorized Motorola
service shop.
2.
(SECURENET-equipped radios only) - If the
encryption key has failed, the display will
momentarily show “KEYFAIL,” accompanied by a
six-beep keyfail tone. For SECURENET operation to
function, reload the encryption key from a key
variable loader (KVL).
3.
Turn the radio off by rotating the volume control
fully counterclockwise until you hear a click.
Monitoring (Conventional Modes Only)
Turn the radio on, momentarily press the monitor
button (typically side button 3), and listen for activity.
To put the radio in permanent monitor operation
(Private-Line® (PL) defeat), press and hold the monitor
button for five seconds (programmable time). The
radio emits a short, high-pitched tone as it enters the
permanent monitor mode. To return the radio to its
original squelch state, tap the monitor button again or
press the PTT switch.
Note (Monitor Operation): SECURENET
transmissions from a radio that has the same
key as the monitoring radio will be heard clearly,
unless the monitoring radio has had its key
erased or is using a different key; then, the
transmission will be heard as noise that is nearly
indistinguishable from channel noise.

4.
Do not interrupt another user. If the mode on
which you are transmitting is programmed to
receive PL ( or the proper code if SECURENETequipped), ensure that the mode is not in use by
momentarily depressing the monitor button to
listen for activity. If the mode-busy feature is
enabled, a blinking red LED on receive (PTT
released) will indicate that the mode is currently
busy and you should not transmit.
Note: The mode-busy feature is suggested for
SECURENET-equipped radios, since monitoring of
SECURENET activity with a different key will sound
like noise that is nearly indistinguishable from
channel noise.
5.
When the mode is clear, press and hold the PTT
switch on the side of the radio and speak slowly
and clearly into the microphone area. The red LED
will be lit continuously while the radio is
transmitting. When you have finished talking
(transmitting), release the PTT to listen (receive).
Notes:
•
If a mode is programmed for receive only, any
attempt to transmit on that mode will cause
an invalid-mode tone to sound until the PTT

If you hear a busy signal (a low-frequency “bahbah-bah-bah”), release the PTT switch and wait
for a call-back tone (sounds like “di-di-dit”). When
you hear the call-back tone you will have three
seconds to press the PTT switch, allowing you to
make your call without getting another busy
signal.
•
If a continuous talk-prohibit tone is heard when
the PTT switch is pressed, transmission is not
possible. The radio may be out of range; or
(SECURENET-equipped only) the two-position
concentric switch may be in the incorrect
position for that mode; for instance, the
particular mode might be slaved encrypted voice
and the switch set to the unencrypted voice
position.
•
Avoid blocking the noise-cancelling port during
transmitting so as to take full advantage of the
noise-cancelling feature.
•
Transmissions on modes (talkgroups) that are
programmed as neither secure-only nor clearonly can be changed from clear to SECURENET
by turning the two-position concentric switch and
pressing the PTT switch. However, you cannot
change from SECURENET to clear during a
transmission; you must wait until the
transmission is ended before changing to clear
operation.
•
You will be able to change from clear operation
to SECURENET operation, but not from
SECURENET to clear during a call.
•
If no secure voice channels are currently
available for a SECURENET transmission that you
wish to make, the display will show “NO

General Radio Features Operation
Low-Battery Alert
The radio will emit an alert tone to indicate a lowbattery condition if the battery voltage falls below the
low-voltage level. The tone will be emitted when the PTT
is released in the transmit mode, and when the lowbattery condition is detected in the receive mode.
Coded Squelch Operation
Tone Private-Line® (PL), Digital Private-Line™
(DPL), and carrier squelch operation are all available in
the same radio, on a per-mode basis. When in carrier
squelch operation, all traffic on the mode is heard.
When in PL or DPL operation, your radio responds to
only those messages intended for you. When this
feature is mode-slaved, PL, DPL, or carrier squelch is
programmed to each mode, and you need not move any
switches for activation. Alternatively, this feature can be
programmed to the ABC switch: carrier squelch
operation in one switch position, and PL or DPL
operation in another switch position.
Whenever the radio is operating in carrier squelch,
the display will show the carrier-squelch annunciator.
SECURENET Operation
This information applies to both conventional and
trunked systems.
1.
A SECURENET module must be installed in the
radio.
2.
An encryption key must be loaded from a keyvariable loader (KVL), using the correct loader for
the radio’s encr yption type, into the radio’s
memory. To load the key, connect the keyloader
cable to the universal connector on the side of the
radio; refer to the KVL’s instruction manual for
l o a di n g pr o c edu r e. W h il e t h e k e y l o a d e r is
attached, the display shows “KEYLOADING.” When
the key has been loaded successfully, the radio will
sound one long beep.
Notes:
•
Normal radio transmit and receive will be
disabled while the cable is connected to the
radio.
•
The radio will abort a secure transmission
when there is not a valid encryption key. When
this happens, the display shows “KEYFAIL,”
and a continuous keyfail tone (consecutive
medium-pitched beeps) sounds until the PTT
switch is released.

Note: Do not press the orange top button first.
This button may have been programmed for
emergency operation.
If the battery is removed for more than
approximately 30 seconds from a radio that is
turned off, the key may be lost. The key may also
be lost from a radio that is turned on if the battery
is removed for any length of time, or if the battery’s
charge is allowed to drop to too low a level. If the
key is lost, it will have to be reloaded using the
KVL. Battery removal is not a guaranteed method
of key erasure.
4.
On SECURENET-equipped radios, the two-position
concentric switch selects whether the radio will be
transmitting clear or secure audio, if a mode is
programmed for neither secure- nor clear-only
operation. The two-position concentric switch will
set the transmit operation of the radio before PTT.
The switch cannot change the transmit operation
while the PTT is pressed.
If a mode is programmed for SECURENET-only
operation, and the two-position concentric switch is
in the clear ( ) position, when the PTT switch is
pressed, the display will show “SECURE ONLY,” an
invalid-mode tone will sound, and the radio will not
transmit until the two-position concentric switch is
set to the SECURENET ( ) position.
If a mode is programmed for clear-only operation,
and the two-position concentric switch is in the
SECURENET (
) position, when the PTT switch is
pressed, the display will show “CLEAR ONLY,” an
invalid-mode tone will sound, and the radio will not
transmit until the two-position concentric switch is
set to the clear ( ) position.

Variable RF Power Level (VHF and UHF Radios Only)
VHF and UHF radios can have more than one power level. High power can be
programmed on those modes where the frequency is licensed for high power, and
low power can be programmed on all other modes. The high-/low-power feature
can also be programmed to the ABC switch, with one switch position being lowpower operation, and another switch position being high-power operation.
Emergency Operation
Pressing the orange top emergency button (for radios with emergency
operation) will send out an emergency signal, which takes precedence over any
other signalling activity in progress. This emergency signal can take two forms:
emergency alarm and emergency call. The MTS 2000 radio can have either or
both signal types enabled.
•
The emergency alarm feature sends a data transmission on the trunked
control mode to alert the dispatcher to an emergency condition and identify
the unit sending the emergency signal.
•
The emergency call (radios with trunked emergency operation only) is a type
of dispatch operation which gives your radio priority access to modes.
Emergency call is programmable via the radio service software (RSS) for
either tactical or non-tactical operation. Tactical emergency operation places
the call to the currently selected mode; non-tactical operation places the call
to a predetermined emergency mode.
•
Clear or SECURENET emergency call operation will be determined by the
preprogramming of the selected mode (talkgroup) or default emergency
mode, if set up. Otherwise, transmit operation will be controlled by the
position of the two-position concentric switch. You will not be able to change
from SECURENET operation to clear operation, or from clear operation to
SECURENET operation, during a call.
“Emergency” signals a critical situation. It should never be used for any
other reason.

Sending an Emergency Alarm
1.
Press and hold the emergency button (the length of
button press is RSS programmable) until the LED
lights solid red and the display alternates between
showing “EMERGENCY” and the current zone and
mode. A short, medium-pitched emergency tone
sounds.
2.
When the trunked emergency alarm is
acknowledged by the central controller, the radio
sounds four beeps and the alarm ends. The radio
returns to normal operation or, if enabled in your
radio (trunked emergency call systems only), enters
at step 3 of “Sending an Emergency Call.” While in
emergency call operation, subsequent presses of
the emergency button will reinitiate the emergency
silence sequence.
Unmute Option - With this option enabled, the
radio will unmute to all voice activity on the
emergency channel. If disabled, the radio will
operate as normal, muting all voice activity on the
emergency channel until the emergency alarm is
cancelled. This option is RSS programmable.
Sending a Silent Emergency Alarm
In radios with the silent emergency alarm option
enabled, pressing the emergency button sends an
emergency signal to the dispatcher. During the
emergency alarm procedure: the LED will not light,
tones will not be heard, and the display will not change.
The audio will be muted (turned off), and will
remain so until you exit the emergency state.
Cancelling an Emergency Alarm
Press the emergency button for more than 1 1/2
seconds (programmable); a medium-pitched emergencyexit tone sounds until the button is released and the
radio returns to normal operation.
The alarm will also be cancelled (without
emergency-exit tone) by:
•
•
•
pressing the PTT switch (see the note below),
turning the radio off, or
receiving an acknowledge from the dispatcher.
Note: Pressing the PTT switch while the radio is in
emergency alarm operation will place the radio in
emergency call operation if emergency call is
enabled. (see step 3 of “Sending an Emergency

2.
Press the PTT switch to request a priority mode
assignment in the trunked system.
3.
While the radio is in emergency call operation it
operates in the usual dispatch manner.
Note:
4.
•
The trunked mode you will talk to in an
emergency is controlled by whether your radio
is programmed for tactical or non-tactical
operation. If tactical, you will be talking to the
mode you selected before entering emergency
call; if non-tactical, you will talk to a
preprogrammed emergency mode.
•
If you change trunked modes while in
emergency call operation, the emergency call
will be moved to, and continued on, the new
mode.
It is important that you exit the emergency call
mode when you have finished your emergency call.
To do this, press the emergency button for more
than 1 1/2 seconds (programmable). You will hear
a medium-pitched emergency-exit tone until the
emergency button is released, and the radio will
return to normal operation.
Emergency with Voice to Follow
With this feature (aka "Hot Microphone"), the radio
is placed in the transmit mode for a preprogrammed
period of time (programmable by RSS) after the
emergency alarm is activated. During this time period,
the "hands-free" mode is activated, and voice
transmisions can be made without pressing the PTT.
After the transmit time has expired, the unit will dekey
and go into a receive mode as it normally does after
dekeying. At this point, normal operation resumes; the
user will be required to press PTT for any further
transmissions on that emergency channel.

Failsoft Operation (Trunked Systems Only)
The “failsoft” system ensures that you will continue
to have radio communications capability in the event of
trunked system failure. During trunked operation, the
radio will automatically go into failsoft operation if the
central trunking controller fails for any reason. While in
failsoft, your radio will transmit and receive on a
predetermined frequency on a conventional, as opposed
to trunked, mode. When the trunked system returns to
normal operation, the radio will automatically leave the
failsoft operation and return to trunked operation.
Clear or SECURENET operation will be determined
by the preprogramming of the selected mode
(talkgroup), if so programmed. Otherwise, transmit
operation will be controlled by the position of the twoposition concentric switch. You will be able to change
from SECURENET operation to clear operation, or from
clear to SECURENET, during a call.
When the radio is in failsoft operation, you will hear
a faint “beeping” sound every ten seconds, and the
radio will become unsquelched. At the same time, the
display will alternate between showing “FAILSOFT” and
the current active trunked zone.

Transmitter Disable Operation (Non-SECURENET-Equipped Radios Only)
If your radio is NOT SECURENET-equipped, the Transmitter Disable feature,
when enabled in your radio (via radio service software [RSS] programming, allows
you to put the radio in a condition where it will not transmit. This will prevent the
radio from accidentally transmitting in a hazardous environment. All
transmissions, including automatic data transmissions, will be inhibited.
To disable the radio transmitter, put the two-position concentric switch in
the“
” position. When your radio's transmitter has been disabled, pressing the
PTT switch will cause a low-pitched alert tone to sound, indicating that a
transmission is not taking place.
Note: While the transmission is disabled, if you attempt to transmit, the
display will react as in normal operation. However, the red LED transmit indicator
will not turn on.
To enable the transmitter for normal operation, put the two-position
concentric switch in the “

Scan Operation
The scan feature allows you to monitor activity on
different conventional or trunked modes by scanning a
“scan list” of modes. Each scan list can contain as many
as 16 different modes; each radio can have up to 20
different scan lists. The modes to be scanned in a scan
list can be programmed with the radio service software
(RSS).
Three types of scan lists are available (Refer to the
RSS manual for additional information):
•
Trunking Priority Monitor—Comprises modes that
are all from the same trunked system.
•
Conventional—Comprises conventional-only modes.
•
Talkgroup Scan—Comprises conventional modes
and trunked modes from more than one trunking
system. Priority operation is not available in this
type of list.
The radio supports both priority and non-priority
scanning. With priority scanning enabled, a scan list
can have one mode assigned as the first priority mode,
and a second as the second priority mode.
All MTS 2000 radios support automatic scanning
(autoscan), which is programmed into the radio through
the RSS. With this feature, the radio begins scanning
whenever you select a mode to which a scan list is
assigned (strapped). The radio will continue
autoscanning until you select a mode that does not have
autoscan enabled.
In radios that are not SECURENET-equipped, scan
can can be selected by the scan select switch (twoposition concentric switch) or the menu.
Turning Scan On/Off Using the Scan Select Switch
1.
To turn scanning on, place the scan select switch
(programmable via the RSS) in the “scan on”

Note: Priority modes cannot be deleted.
2.
The radio continues scanning the remaining modes in the list. To resume
scanning the deleted mode, you must leave and reenter scan operation.
Dynamic Priority Change (Conventional Operation Only)
While the radio is scanning, the dynamic priority change feature lets you
temporarily change any mode in a scan list (except the priority 1 mode) to the
priority 2 mode. The present priority 2 mode becomes a non-priority mode. This
change remains in effect until scan is turned off, then scanning reverts back to
the preprogrammed state.

Conventional Telephone Operation
The conventional telephone feature allows you to
use your conventional radio similar to a standard
telephone. To make a call through the telephone
system, your radio must send access and hangup
codes to the system. Unless otherwise indicated, the
conventional telephone sections in this manual assume
that the access and hangup codes have been
programmed into the radio by the RSS. These codes will
then be automatically transmitted.
When you are dialing from the keypad (MTS 2000
III model only), your radio may be programmed with
either buffered dial (you enter all digits and press the
PTT before the digits are sent out) or live dial (each digit
is sent out as it is pressed).

Conventional Radio Features Operation
Stat-AlertTM (MDC-1200TM) Signalling Features
Stat-Alert—Emergency
If this feature is enabled in your radio, pressing the emergency button (the
orange top button) will send out an emergency alarm signal. This signal takes
precedence over any other signalling activity in progress.
“Emergency” signals a critical situation. It should never be used for any
other reason.
Sending an Emergency Alarm
1.
Press and hold the emergency button (the length of the button press is RSS
programmable) until the LED lights solid red and the display alternates
between showing “EMERGENCY” and the current zone and mode. A short,
medium-pitched emergency tone sounds.
2.
When the alarm is acknowledged by the base, the radio sounds four beeps
and the alarm ends. The radio returns to normal operation.
Sending a Silent Emergency Alarm
In radios with the silent emergency alarm option enabled, pressing the
emergency button sends an emergency signal to the dispatcher. During the
emergency alarm procedure: the LED will not light, tones will not be heard, and
the display will not change.
The receive audio will be muted (turned off), and will remain so until you exit
the emergency state. As an option, the receive audio can be enabled to allow you
to hear messages.
Cancelling an Emergency Alarm
Press the emergency button for more than 1 1/2 seconds (programmable).
A medium-pitched, emergency-exit tone sounds until the button is released and
the radio returns to normal operation.
The alarm will also be cancelled (without emergency-exit tone) by:
•
pressing the PTT switch,
•
turning the radio off, or
•
receiving an acknowledge from the dispatcher.
Stat-Alert - Emergency Hot Microphone
This feature will automatically send an emergency alarm and start the radio
transmitting using either the internal microphone or the optional remote speaker
microphone.
Both emergency alarm and call must be enabled. Initiate the emergency. The
radio will send an alarm and begin transmitting on the specified emergency group
through the internal microphone or remote speaker microphone for a preprogrammed transmit time. The radio will remain in normal emergency call after
the transmit time has expired. To re-initiate the hot-microphone emergency, you
must exit and re-start the emergency.

Radio Operation with Features (cont.)
Stat-Alert—PTT-ID
Stat-Alert PTT-ID is a per-mode feature describing an identification code
transmission that is tied to the PTT switch. The ID code is automatically sent
every time a voice transmission occurs (that is, the PTT switch is pressed). When
PTT-ID comes before the voice transmission, you will hear a tone until the ID
transmission is completed; this helps you avoid talking while the ID code is being
transmitted. This tone can be disabled on a per-radio basis. Also, the ID code
transmission can be programmed to follow the voice transmission.
Stat-Alert—Call Alert™ (Page) (Decode)
Stat-Alert Call Alert is a per-radio feature that provides a convenient way for
the dispatcher to page you through your radio. This is especially useful in noisy
environments, or when you may need to be away from your radio equipment.
When a Call Alert (page) is received, the radio emits a continuous series of four
beeps and the LED flashes green. On the display, the call-received status
annunciator (
) flashes. The green flashing LED, alert tone, and flashing
annunciator will continue until the Call Alert is acknowledged (you press the PTT,
or press and release the monitor button).
Stat-Alert Call Alert (Page) (Encode)
This feature allows a radio to page another radio or group of radios with
its ID.
Sending the Call Alert
To make a Call Alert, either press the “page” button or select PAGE from the
menu. The last transmitted or received ID is displayed. You can select the ID
you wish to page by scrolling forward with the mode selector to select an ID
from the page list. You may also scroll backward with the arrow keys to show
the last group ID paged, your own radio ID and your own radio group ID. If
unlimited page is allowed, you may enter an ID from the keypad.
Note: Keypad entry only applies to Model III.
To transmit a page to the selected ID, either press the PTT or the select
b u t t o n . T h e r a d i o w i l l d i s p l a y “A C K N O W L E D G E ” i f r e c e i v e d o r
“NO ACKNOWLEDGE” if the paged radio is not reached.
Receiving a Call Alert
The radio receiving the page will display “PAGE RECEIVED” and generate
page received alert tones until the page is cancelled by any button press
other than DIM. The ID of the paging radio may be viewed by entering PAGE
via button or menu (Model II only).
Wildcard ID Entry
In both Selective Call and Call Alert, a * will match any number in the ID
position. For example, paging ID 000* will page all IDs from 0000-0009.
Paging **** will page all radios on the system.

Radio Operation with Features (cont.)
Stat-Alert—Voice Selective-Call (Decode)
This feature provides a convenient way for a dispatcher to voice page an
individual or group. Voice selective-call decode also eliminates the need for you to
listen to traffic that is of no concern to you. This is a per-radio feature, enabled on
a per-mode basis, and available as individual call or group call.
1.
When a call is received, the green LED flashes, and a one-time, two-beep
alert tone is emitted; on the display, the call-received status annunciator ( )
flashes. A voice message will follow. The green LED will continue to flash for
the entire length of the message.
2.
Return the radio back to voice selective-call operation by pressing the monitor
button or, if so programmed, the radio will automatically reset.
Two automatic-reset features are available for voice selective-call:
•
Automatic Reset Without Carrier Override — The automatic-reset
timer will start after the voice selective-call code is lost or after the radio
is dekeyed (you release the PTT switch).
•
Automatic Reset With Carrier Override — When a carrier is detected,
the automatic reset timer will stop; when the carrier is lost, the
automatic-reset timer will start over.
Note: Voice selective-call automatic reset is cancelled when the monitor
button is pressed or when the mode is changed. The automatic-reset timer is
started over if it was running when either a voice selective-call was decoded
or a successful transmission was initiated.
Stat-Alert—Radio Check
This feature allows the dispatcher to determine if a radio unit is on the air
without disturbing the radio operator. This is a useful tool for the radio dispatcher
to use for routine maintenance checks, or if there is reason to doubt the
availability of a radio unit. When the dispatcher "checks" for the radio, the radio
will receive the command and automatically acknowledge it. The transmit (red)
LED will light when the radio sends the acknowledgement.

Conventional Radio Features
Operation (cont.)
Stat-Alert Selective Call
Selective Call is another method of unmuting a radio with other than PL
codes. Radios with Selective Call may be programmed to unmute one of two ways:
1.
(OR muting option) upon receiving proper PL code or a Selective Call, or
2.
(AND muting option) upon receiving both proper PL code and Selective
Call
Making a Selective Call
Either press the “call” button or select PRIVATE CALL from the menu. The
last transmitted or received ID is displayed. You can select the ID you wish to
call by scrolling forward with the arrow keys to select an ID from the call list.
You may also scroll backward with the arrow keys to show the last group ID
called, your own radio ID and your own radio group ID. If unlimited calling is
allowed, you may enter an ID from the keypad.
Note: Keypad entry only applies to Model III.
To transmit a call to the selected ID, press the PTT. If automatic Selective Call
is enabled, your radio will remain in Selective Call until you exit. If automatic
Selective Call is disabled in your radio, the radio will immediately exit Selective
Call when you release the PTT.
Receiving a Selective Call
When receiving a selective call, your radio will generate the call received tone
and display “CALL RECEIVED” momentarily. The Selective Call voice will then
be heard.
If OR muting is programmed into your radio, your radio will unmute whenever
it receives proper PL or a Selective Call.
If AND muting is programmed into your radio, your radio must receive proper
PL and a Selective Call to unmute. For a pre-programmed time after receiving
a Selective Call, your radio will unmute on proper PL. After this preprogrammed time, another Selective Call with proper PL will be required to
unmute the radio.

Conventional Radio Features
Operation (cont.)
Repeat/Direct
The repeat/direct feature allows you to bypass the repeater and talk directly
to another portable radio. This is known as DIRECT operation. The transmit
frequency is the same as the receive frequency.
•
In REPEAT operation, you talk through the repeater, which increases the
radio's operating range. The transmit frequency is not the same as the
receive frequency.
•
If the repeat/direct feature is slaved to a mode, that mode is programmed
to either one or the other type of operation (direct or repeat).
•
If the repeat/direct feature is programmed, through the RSS, to the threeposition toggle switch, one position on the switch will select repeat operation,
and another position will select direct operation.
•
If the repeat/direct feature is programmed, by the RSS, to the keypad,
change the repeat/direct setting by doing the following:
1.
Press the right arrow (
) key until “DIR” appears on the display.
2.
Press the key below “DIR.” The current talkaround state (“REPEATER
MODE” or “DIRECT MODE”) appears on the display for a few seconds.
Then, the display shows “RPTR” and “DIR.”
3.
Press the key below the desired talkaround state (RPTR or DIR). The
radio automatically returns to the home display.

Conventional Radio Features
Operation (cont.)
Smart PTT
Smart PTT is a per-mode feature which gives the system manager better
control of radio operators. When smart PTT is enabled in your radio, you will not
be able to transmit on an active mode. Also, the monitor function will be disabled
on modes programmed with smart PTT. Three radio-wide variations of smart PTT
are available:
•
Transmit Inhibit on Busy Mode—With this feature enabled, you will be
inhibited from transmitting if any activity is detected on the mode.
•
Transmit Inhibit on Busy Mode with Wrong Squelch Code—With this
feature enabled, you will be inhibited from transmitting on an active mode
with a squelch code or (if SECURENET-equipped) encryption key other than
your own. If the PL or encr yption code is the same as yours, the
transmission will not be inhibited.
•
Quick-Key Override—This feature can work in conjunction with either of the
two above variations. With this feature enabled, you will be able to override
the transmit-inhibit state by quick-keying (two PTT presses within one second
of each other) the radio.
Smart PTT radio operation is exactly the same as standard radio operation,
except that, if you try to transmit (press the PTT) on a smart PTT mode, a
continuous alert tone is generated until the PTT is released; the transmission will
be inhibited.
The red LED will blink when the radio is receiving to indicate that the mode is
busy.

Trunked Enhanced Private Conversation™ Call
Operation
The Enhanced Private Conversation feature not only
allows you to carry on a conversation that is heard only
by the two parties involved, but also enables you to
determine whether the radio that you are calling is in
service. The radio being called can also view the calling
radio's ID number before answering. You can then
choose whether or not to leave your radio’s ID number
(via a Call Alert page) with the radio you are calling so
that you may be called back. Enhanced Private
Conversation operation is similar to telephone
operation.
Note: When you are making a call, transmit
operation will be controlled by the position of the twoposition concentric switch. You will be able to change
from SECURENET operation to clear operation, but
not from clear to SECURENET, during the call.

Call Alert™ Page Operation
The Call Alert page feature lets your radio function
like a pager (beeper). Depending upon how it is
programmed by the RSS, the radio can receive and
respond to pages from other radios, and send pages to
them.
Answering a Call Alert Page
1.
When a Call Alert page is being received, you will
hear a recurring four-beep tone until you answer
the call or reset the radio. The display will alternate
between showing the current talkgroup and “PAGE
RECEIVED.” The green LED and the call received
status annunciator will flash.
Note: Any button press, keypad press, or mode
change will turn the Call Alert audible and visual
indicators off.
2.
To answer the page, press the PTT switch. The
display will show the current talkgroup constantly;
the audible alert and the LED and call received
annunciator will turn off. The ID number of the
radio that paged you is stored as “the last ID
number received.”
3.
Carry on with your conversation in the normal
manner; all members of your talkgroup will hear
your response. Press the PTT switch to talk;
release the switch to listen.

Automatic Multiple Site Selection (AMSS)
The automatic multiple site selection (AMSS)
feature extends communications beyond the reach of a
single trunked site (antenna location). In a system where
wide-area coverage is required, multiple trunking sites
are used.
AMSS automatically switches the radio to a
different site when the current-site signal becomes too
weak. Typically, this happens when the radio is moved
out of the range of one site and into the range of
another. Under normal conditions, this switching is
invisible to the user.

Dynamic Regrouping
The dynamic regrouping feature allows the dispatcher to temporarily reassign
selected radios, operating in the same or different trunked modes, to a single
special mode so that they can communicate with each other. This feature, enabled
in each radio via the RSS, is typically used during special operations. When your
radio has been dynamically regrouped, you will hear a distinct “gurgle” tone.
Mechanical Mode Selection
You will not notice whether your radio has this feature enabled until a dynamic
regrouping is sent by the dispatcher. If you turn your radio's mode selector knob to
the dynamic regrouping position without being dynamically regrouped, an invalidmode tone will be heard.
1.
When your radio has been dynamically regrouped, you will hear a “gurgle” tone.
Your radio will be automatically switched to the dynamic regrouping mode; the
display will show the name assigned to the dynamic regrouping mode.
Note: SECURENET-equipped radios are assigned (by the dispatcher for the
dynamic-regrouping mode) to be secure-only, clear only, or secure/clear
selectable by the two-position concentric switch.
2.
Turn the mode selector knob to the dynamic regrouping position to transmit on
the dynamic regrouping mode.
Note: Until you select the correct position, you will hear a gurgle tone each
time you press the PTT switch, reminding you that you are transmitting on the
dynamic regrouping mode, not the mode indicated by the position of the mode
selector knob.
3.
4.
Talk and listen as usual.
When the dynamic regrouping is cancelled by the dispatcher:
a.
If the mode selector knob is in the dynamic regrouping position, an invalidmode tone will be heard until a normal mode is selected.
b.
If the mode selector knob is in any other mode position, the radio will
transmit in the selected mode.
Electronic (Menu) Mode Selection
You will not notice whether your radio has this feature enabled until a dynamic
regrouping command is sent by the dispatcher. If you select the dynamic regrouping
mode via the menu without being dynamically regrouped, an invalid-mode tone will
be heard.
1.
When your radio has been dynamically regrouped, you will hear a “gurgle” tone.
Your radio will be automatically switched to the dynamic regrouping mode.

Dynamic Regrouping (cont.)
Select Enable and Disable
The dispatcher may classify regrouped radios into either of two categories:
“select enabled,” and “select disabled.”
•
Select-enabled radios are free to make mode changes to any available mode,
including the dynamic regrouping mode.
•
Select-disabled radios cannot change modes, since the dispatcher has
specifically chosen to force the radio to remain in the dynamic mode.
Note: Scan, Phone, and Private Conversation cannot be selected while the
radio is select disabled.
Caller ID Display
The Caller-ID feature will momentarily display the 6-digit ID or alias name of
the radio that initiated a talkgroup call, call alert, or a private call. Two options are
available: Caller ID and Aliased Caller ID.
1.
Caller ID will display the 6-digit ID of the radio which initiates a group or
individual call.
2.
Aliased caller ID will display the 6-digit ID of the radio which initiates a
group or individual call. If the ID of the radio which initiates the call is in
the pre-programmed call list of your radio, your radio will display the
alias name instead of the 6-digit ID.
Caller ID When an Emergency Call is Received
If the emergency receive indication is enabled in your radio and an emergency
call is received, your radio will alternate the display between the ID (or alias
name) of the radio that initiated the emergency call, the emergency received
display, and the talkgroup (Zone/Chan assignment).
“ID: 700001”
“EMER RECEIVED”
“POLICE NORTH”
Notes:
•
Only the ID of the radio that initiates the conversation will be displayed on
your radio. If other radio users continue the conversation without
allowing the channel to drop, their IDs will not be displayed on your radio.
•
This feature is not available on Type I Trunked Systems.
Programmable Home Mode Button
The HOME key may be programmed via the RSS as a mode preset button.
The Programmable Home Mode Button allows you, the radio operator, to
preset a commonly used mode for quick access.
1.
Select the desired mode using the channel selector or the zone and
channel menu keys.
2.
Press and hold the HOME key until a good-key tone is heard.
3.
Your HOME key is now programmed to the currently selected mode.
4.
When operating on any mode in your radio, a short press of the HOME
key will cause the radio to immediately change to the preset mode.

109 Trunked Radio Features Operation
(cont.)
SmartZoneTM Operation
Radios that operate in a SmartZone system will enjoy the benefits that
SmartZone brings over AMSS operation. Like AMSS, SmartZone is a wide-area
coverage system that will allow up to 50 sites to be operational in the system.
SmartZone brings several enhancements over AMSS operation such as:
•
Dynamic Site Assignment - Allows the zone controller to dynamically assign
channels at sites where required, as opposed to bringing up channels at all
of the sites as AMSS systems do.
•
Variable Density Sites - SmartZone allows sites to have varying numbers of
channel resources to accommodate low-density areas as well as high-density
areas.
•
Automatic Site Registration/De-registration - SmartZone radios automatically
send in their unit IDs and current mode selections upon power up, power
down, site switches, mode changes, and when they exit emergency
operation. This allows the zone controller to know where the radio is at all
times, and also what mode the radio has selected.
•
Critical Site Assignment - One or more sites can be designated as critical
sites. This will instruct the zone controller to ensure that, before a channel
grant is given to a radio that has been identified as a critical site user, every
site that is designated as a critical site must have available channel
resources, otherwise a busy will be sent to the unit.
•
Busy Override - This feature allows a SmartZone radio to send a busy
override request if a busy is issued. The zone controller will send a grant
even though not all of the sites may have available channel resources.
•
Enhanced Automatic Site Switching - SmartZone radios will use RSSI
(received signal strength indication) to determine if the radio should switch to
another site; this will be transparent to the user. In addition, the zone
controller continuously transmits up to seen adjacent site IDs (along with
their active control modes) to the radios, so that the radio, at any time, will
be able to quickly switch to the next site that has the highest RSSI rating,
since the control mode and site ID is known in advance. This is an
enhancement over AMSS systems.
•
Preferred Site - SmartZone radios can program certain sites to be always
preferred, most preferred, or least preferred. This gives the user the
flexibility to keep a radio on a particular site, regardless of the presence of a
stronger signal from an adjacent site. This also forces the radio to always
look for its preferred site and use it whenever possible.
•
Site Trunking - If the zone controller loses communication with any site, that
site will revert to what is known as “site trunking.” While in this condition,
radios will still be able to operate in the trunking mode, but trunking
operations will be limited to the site only.
•
Enhanced Failsoft Operation - If a site experiences a complete failure, it will
revert to failsoft operation like today's SMARTNET system. A SmartZone
radio, however, can be programmed to automatically migrate to the lowest
failsoft frequency programmed in its list of 32 control modes. The radio will
periodically scan the control mode to check for the presence of a valid
control mode (in case the radio roamed into a site which is trunking).
110
110 Trunked Radio Features Operation
(cont.)
SmartZoneTM Operation (cont.)
Site Switching in SmartZone
Site Switching in SmartZone mainly uses signal strength to determine
whether or not to switch sites. Other factors used to determine whether the radio
should switch sites is the radio's preferred site selection (which is programmable
via the RSS), and whether the radio is site locked or not. Because the radio at all
times knows the site ID, active control mode, and the signal strengths of its
adjacent sites, the radio is capable of quickly switching sites, which under normal
conditions is invisible to the user.
Viewing the Current Site and Forcing a Site Change
1.
Momentarily press the search button (programmed via the RSS).
a.
If the radio is presently locked onto a site, the display will show either the
name of the current site or the site number (determined by RSS
programming).
b.
If the radio is scanning for a new site, the display will show “SCANNING
SITES” (MTS 2000 III radios only) until it locks onto a new site. This is a
timed display which will disappear after a few seconds.
c.
If the radio has not yet received a site ID outbound signalling word
(OSW), the radio will display “SITE XX” until either the display times out
or the radio receives the site ID OSW.
2.
Press and hold down the search button to manually force the change to a
new site. You will hear a tone and the display will show “SCANNING SITE“
(MTS 2000 III radios only) while the radio scans for a new site.
3.
When a new site is found, the new site's name will be momentarily displayed
if it is known, otherwise “SITE XX” will be displayed.
Locking and Unlocking a Site
As in an AMSS radio, you can force the radio to stay locked onto a site,
regardless of whether the signal level of an adjacent site is higher or not. Of
course, locking a radio onto a particular site will defeat the automatic site
switching mechanisms of the radio. Note that you can still force the radio to scan
to another site while site locked. The radio will automatically become site locked to
the next site it finds. Refer to the section on AMSS operation for a description of
how to enter the radio into and out of the locked state.

(cont.)
SmartZone Operation (cont.)
Preferred Site Selection
SmartZone radios can have up to eight sites that are individually set as either
“always preferred,” “most preferred,” or “least preferred.” The default value is no
preference. This feature is programmed via the RSS.
•
Always-Preferred Site – A SmartZone radio will always attempt to stay on this
site whenever possible unless the receive signal strength indication (RSSI)
level falls below the unacceptable level. The radio will periodically check the
RSSI levels of its preferred site(s) to ensure that it will always operate on the
best preferred site (more than one preferred site can be enabled).
•
Most-Preferred Site – A site marked in this fashion is one level of preference
below “always preferred.” The radio will attempt to remain on this site unless
an always-preferred site has been determined to have either the same or a
higher RSSI level. The radio will always determine the best most-preferred
site and switch to it whenever possible.
•
Non-Preferred Site – A radio operating in this site will switch sites if an
always preferred or most-preferred adjacent site with the same or higher
RSSI level is discovered. The radio will always determine the best nonpreferred site and switch to it whenever possible.
•
Least-Preferred Site – A radio operating in this site will switch sites if any of
the above site rankings for any adjacent sites are discovered and their RSSI
levels are at least at the acceptable range. The unit will always determine the
best least-preferred site and switch to it whenever possible.
Busy Override
With the introduction of dynamic site assignment, critical site, and critical
user concepts in SmartZone, the busy processing rules were changed in order to
allow users to establish communication with some of the trunked mode members
instead of waiting for all trunked mode members in all sites to be available. A busy
override request can be made to request for the grant, even though one or more
non-critical states are busied. Busy override is not a radio codeplug option but it is
enabled or disabled via the SmartZone manager.
1.
Assume that you have requested a mode by pressing the PTT, and have
received a busy indication. Release the PTT and press it again. A busy
indication will be received if modes are still busy.
2.
Keep the PTT switch pressed for the amount of time specified in the
codeplug for “busy override delay time” (typically about three seconds, but
can range from two to six seconds). After the timer times out, if the PTT is
still pressed, the busy override request will be sent.
3.
A programmable busy override chirp acknowledgement will be sounded when
the busy override request is sent.
4.
If a grant is received, you should be aware that not all of the members of the
mode may be engaged in the call. You will not be able to determine this.
More sites may join the call, however, if modes become available at these
sites and the original call is still active.

112 Trunked Radio Features Operation
(cont.)
SmartZone Operation (cont.)
Site Trunking
Site trunking occurs when a site is not longer able to participate in wide-area
calls controlled by the zone controller. Radios operating in site trunking can only
communicate with other radios at that site. All trunking features are still available.
The radio will of course always be looking for a wide-area trunking site to lock onto
if it roams into range of one. Also, busied call requests will automatically be
queued at the new site if a site switch is done.
1.
When a site goes into site trunking, the radio will receive this indication and
will display “SITE TRUNKING” (MTS 2000 III radios) or “SITE TRK” (MTS
2000 II radios).
2.
The display will alternate between the current trunked mode and the site
trunking display for as long as the radio remains in site trunking. A radio-wide
codeplug option will specify whether a site trunking indication will be displayed
or not.
3.
The radio will not be considered in site trunking if:
a.
The zone controller determines that the site should no longer be in site
trunking and the radio receives this indication, or
b.
the radio is out of range, or
c.
the radio enters failsoft operation.
Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) Text Display
RSSI is used by the radio in Smartzone site switching. It gives an indication of
how strong a signal is being received by the radio. RSSI values are shown below.
When pressing the SRCH button, the radio will display the current site followed by
the RSSI text display.

113 Batteries and Accessories
Battery Information
The MTS 2000 radio receives its power (7.5Vdc)
from a rechargeable nickel-cadmium battery as listed in
the accessories section. These batteries are a safe,
dependable power source for your radio. Proper care of
the battery will ensure its effectiveness and allow for
peak radio performance.
Recharging Nickel-Cadmium Batteries
Recharge the batter y before use to ensure
optimum capacity and performance. The battery was
designed specifically to be used with a Motorola MTS
2000 charger. Charging in non-Motorola equipment
may lead to battery damage and void the battery
warranty.
Note: When charging a battery that is attached to
the radio, turn the radio off to ensure a full charge.
WARNING: Do not attempt to change or charge
the battery in a hazardous atmosphere.
Charging Temperature
The batter y should be at about 77°F (room
temperature) whenever possible. Charging a cold
battery (below 50° F) may result in leakage of
electrolyte and, ultimately, in failure of the battery.
Charging a hot battery (above 95°F) results in reduced
discharge capacity, affecting the performance of the
radio. MTS 2000 rapid-rate battery chargers contain a
temperature-sensing circuit to ensure that the battery
is charged within these temperature limits.
Short Circuit
Care should be taken to avoid external short
circuiting of the battery.
WARNING: A sustained high-rate discharge (for
example, a paper clip placed accidentally across
the battery contacts) may permanently damage
the battery, void the battery warranty, and
create a burn or fire hazard.
113

114 Batteries and Accessories (cont.)
Memory Effect (Reduced Charge Capacity)
Memory effect was a phenomenon which caused a temporary loss in battery
capacity or voltage due to repetitive shallow discharging or long-term overcharging.
This memory effect has been virtually eliminated from Motorola batteries through
the use of new cell technology.
Nickel-Cadmium Battery Disposal
For disposal, nickel-cadmium sealed rechargeable batteries should be delivered
to an authorized metals reclamation dealer, or returned to Motorola.
WARNING: Do not dispose of any batteries in a fire, as they may explode!

Radio Care
Cleaning
Clean external surfaces of the radio with a mild detergent and a stiff, nonmetallic, short-bristled brush. A suitable detergent solution may be mixed by
adding one teaspoon of mild dishwashing detergent to one gallon of water (0.5%
solution). Apply the detergent solution sparingly with the brush, being careful not
to allow excess detergent to remain entrapped near connectors and controls or in
cracks and crevices. Do not submerse the radio in the detergent solution. Dry the
radio thoroughly with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Clean all battery contacts with a lint-free cloth to remove dirt, grease, or
other foreign material that may prevent good electrical connections.
Handling
•
Avoid physical abuse; do not pound, drop, or throw the radio
unnecessarily. Do not carry the radio by the antenna.
•
Avoid subjecting the radio to an excess of liquids. Never allow the radio
to become submersed.
•
Avoid subjecting the radio to corrosives, solvents, or spirits.
CAUTION
Clean the radio with the recommended solution only. Cleaning the radio
with solvents or spirits may be harmful and permanently damage the
radio housing.
Do not disassemble the radio in any way. Keep the connector cover in place
until ready to use the accessory connector. Replace the cover immediately after
the accessory has been disconnected.

FCC Safety Standards
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC),
with its action in General Docket 79-144, March 13,
1985, has adopted a safety standard for human
exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic energy
emitted by FCC regulated equipment. Motorola
subscribes to the same safety standard for the use of
its products. Proper operation of this radio will result in
user exposure substantially below FCC recommended
limits:
•
Do not hold the radio with the antenna very
close to, or touching, exposed parts of the
body, especially the face, ears, or eyes, while
transmitting. Hold the radio in a ver tical
position with the microphone two to three
inches away from the lips.
•
Do not hold the transmit switch (PTT) on when
not actually desiring to transmit.
•
Do not allow children to play with any radio
equipment containing a transmitter.
•
Do not operate radio transmitters near
explosive blasting caps.The transmitted radio
energy may trigger a blasting cap and cause
an explosion.
•
Do not operate radio transmitters in an
explosive atmosphere unless it is a type
especially qualified for such use. An explosion
may result.
•
Do not replace or charge batteries in a
hazardous atmosphere. Contact sparking may
occur while installing or removing batteries
and cause an explosion.
•
Turn radio off when removing or installing a
battery.
Anyone intending to use a radio in a hazardous area
is advised to become familiar with the subject of
intrinsic safety and with Section 70 of the National Fire
Code, which is commonly referred to as Article 500 of
the National Electric Code. Use of anything but factory
supplied components may affect the approval and safety
of the radio. Likewise, it is advised that servicing should
be performed only by qualified personnel who adhere to
the following Factory Mutual Research Corporation
(FMRC) required warning:
WARNING: Modification of (FMRC) approved
intrinsically safe radios will negate Factory
Mutual Research Corporation (FMRC) approval.
119
119 General Information (cont.)
Factory Mutual Research Corporation (FMRC) Information
Certain MTS 2000 radios and batteries have been declared intrinsically safe
by Factory Mutual Research Corporation (FMRC) of Norwood, Massachusetts, for
use in hazardous atmospheres. FMRC-approved radios are identified by attached
certification labels and by matching green dots found on the bottoms of the radios
and batteries. The intrinsically-safe rating by Factory Mutual Research Corporation
states that electrical equipment is incapable of releasing sufficient electrical or
thermal energy, under normal or abnormal operating conditions, to cause ignition
of a specific hazardous atmosphere. This means that the MTS 2000 radio has
been thoroughly tested by FMRC and carries its certification for operation in the
hazardous atmospheres designated on the radio label. Radios must ship from
the Motorola factory with the hazardous atmosphere capability and cannot be
modified in the field. Failure to use the radio with the approved battery will negate
the approval. MTS 2000 radios that are approved by FMRC can be used in those
applications requiring reliable, two-way, hand-held radios in the listed specific
hazardous atmospheres. Motorola-approved equipment and accessories, along with
competitive equipment approvals, are listed in the yearly approval guide published by
Factory Mutual Research Corporation. This guide can be ordered from the following
