TETRA-Handheld Radio BHR 21 PS
1 General
The BHR 21 PS Hand-held radio set you acquired is a high-quality tool for radio communication in
professional digital TETRA radio communications networks
These operating instructions describe the functions and user interface of the radio set. They will be
updated according to the latest software version and can be obtained from the manufacturer as
required.
In some topics of these operating instructions you will find references to various operational variants
that depend on "preprogramming" or "personalization" of the radio set. This refers e.g. to the setting
of the radio communications network parameters, functional variants and user-specific parameters
(Phonebook, group list etc.).
Note
)
Caution
Please read the commissioning and operating instructions
supplied with each BHR 21 PS radio set before using it.
These instructions provide all the relevant and mandatory safety
instructions, information on operating conditions and service
information.
Within the scope of the European directive 99/5/EC, the
operator must ensure that the health protection and safety of the
user of the terminal equipment and of other persons is
guaranteed.1
Caution
With respect to the exposure of people to electromagnetic fields
(110 MHz to 40 GHz), product standard EN 50385 must be
applied.

TETRA-Handheld Radio BHR 21 PS
1.1 Initial operation
Charge the Li Ion battery before the initial operation of the hand-held radio. You may charge the
battery itself in a single or multiple charger as well as in combination with the radio.
At first you will have to apply the battery to the device by clicking it into the battery retainer. Now you
can switch on the hand-held radio.
Operation of portable radio types BHR 21 PS need to be prepared and programmed before usage.
Network and all other specific parameters for trunked mode operation (TMO) and/or direct mode
operation (DMO) need a specific configuration for each radio which is related to actual regulations of
the relevant network operator and all relevant regulations within the country of use including
frequency regulations. Though firmware and software are included the radio has to be programmed
for specific use by the means of the delivered personalisation tool originally manufactured and
delivered from PMRS GmbH while setting all network relevant data, numbers, group assignments and
other features. Personalisation must be conducted by authorized personnel or service partners who
have been trained by PMRS GmbH and are able to show a valid authorisation certificate originally
issued from PMRS GmbH. Loading of Firmware must be conducted while the battery is already fully
charged.
Besides the battery the enclosed antenna is an essential part for accurate use of the radio. Operation
of the radio must be executed while the antenna is fixed to the radio in the designated position to the
antenna connector of the radio. Wetness, humidity and impurification of both the antenna connector of
the radio and the antenna itself may cause severe damage or usage problems of the radio. It has to
be assured that both connectors are dry and clean before fixing them to each other.
There is a leather carrying bag available fort he BHR 21 PS. This bag has been especially developed
for use in EX-zones and is part of the device’s ATEX-certificate. The BHR 21 PS may be used as well
as with or without this carrying bag in such areas. Only certificated carrying bags may be used for this
purpose.
1.2 Directions for maintenance
The device is free of maintenance.
Note the storage conditions of the battery. A battery that has been left uncharged for a long period will
permanently loose capacity. Therefore it should be recharged before a long period of storage. Before
reaching the storage limit a battery has to be fully dis- and then recharged, thus the it stays functional
and the storage limit has been reset.

3 Charging the Rechargeable Battery
Please ensure that your rechargeable battery is always charged to guarantee the reliability of your
radio set at all times and the operability whenever required.
Caution
Caveat emptor
The warranty does not include damage caused by charging the
rechargeable battery using charging devices of third-party manufacturers.
Æ Exclusively use the charging devices designed for the product.
The rechargeable battery can be charged via the power supply interface of the radio set when
inserted, or it can be charged separately. Since the rechargeable battery can be changed rapidly and
easily, a BHR 21 IS Hand-held radio set can also be kept in permanent operation.
When you remove the rechargeable battery from the radio set while it is switched on, the last settings
you made may be lost. For this reason, switch off the radio set before you remove the battery.
Push down the two locks (see figure to the right) to remove the
battery. The battery can then easily be folded out to the rear and
removed to the top. Analogously, for fitting the battery, first insert it
into the bottom part of the Hand-held radio set and then press at
the top until it engages.
Thereafter you can switch on the Hand-held radio set.

7 Volume Control
7.1 Direct Volume Control
The volume can be controlled directly via rotary switch FS2. In this case, the
volume of voice and tone signals are changed proportionally. While the volume is
being controlled, the current value is displayed.
7.2 Volume Menu
When using the rotary switch FS2 or when pressing function button FT4 on
the right-hand side of the radio set, the volume control menu is directly
displayed. The value displayed can be changed either via rotary switch FS2
or via the softkeys FT5 and FT9 below the display.
The volume control menu can also be accessed via the general menu
system as follows: Menu → Settings → Volume.
7.3 Signal Tone Volume Control
Signal tones are output to support operation, as a response to operator actions, when the device
status changes, when messages arrive and for call processes. They are used as a confirmation,
rejection or as a note/alarm.
The most frequent signals:
• Signal for registering in the TETRA network (TMO) or for network scan
• Availability (release) of the voice channel and device ready to send (confirmation of the
channel assignment with the PTT button pressed)
• Call signals for individual voice calls in simplex and duplex mode, end of a connection,
call rejection
• Status call or text message transmitted or received
• Fault signal, low battery warning.
The volume of the signal tones can be set separately:
In the volume menu (Menu: "Volume LSP“) you can use the scroll keys FT7
and FT8 below the display to switch to another menu for changing the
signal tone volume relative to the overall volume.
The value can be changed either via the softkeys or rotary switch FS2. The
display will automatically return to the standard operating display (ready for
operation) when no further are made (timeout).

9 Individual Voice Calls
As opposed to group calls that reach a group of subscribers with a single call, individual voice calls
are established by dialling the number of a single subscriber.
9.1 Simplex and Duplex Transmissions
In simplex mode, voice data are always transmitted in only one of two possible directions. The desire
to send voice data (i.e. to talk) is transmitted to the network infrastructure via the PTT button, which
then grants the radio set the permission to send. In this context, the network controller may treat the
radio communications subscribers with different priorities when granting the permission to send.
Dispatcher terminals, for example, are often processed with a higher priority.
In a duplex mode connection, both the radio sets can transmit and receive permanently. If a call is
established to the PSTN through a specific prefix, the call is automatically established in duplex
mode.
9.2 Call Setup Variants
•
•
It is possible to set defaults for the radio set that provide for the setup of a direct call when a
call is initiated via the PTT button. In the case of a direct call, the receiver need not actively
accept the call. The called radio set will automatically switch to the receive status.
If the same radio set is used to initiate the call via the M/OK key (FT6), the receiver must
accept the call after the ring tone just as in the case of a standard telephone (hook mode).
Alternatively the radio set can be programmed with default values that cause every individual
voice call initiated with the PTT button to be set up in simplex mode and each call initiated with
the M/OK key (FT6) to be set up in duplex mode (refer to 8.2 Call parameters).

TETRA-Handheld Radio BHR 21 PS
9.3 Entering the Call Destination via the Keypad
In standard operating status (ready for operation), an individual voice call is made by entering the
subscriber number via the keypad and then pressing either the PTT button or the M/OK key (refer to
8.2 Call parameters).
When the first digit is entered, ISSI is displayed in the top line to indicate
that an individual subscriber number is entered. Faulty inputs can be
deleted by pressing the Escape/Clear key briefly, or, if complete inputs are
to be deleted, by pressing it for an extended period of time.
When all the entered or preset digits have been deleted, "dial" will be
displayed in the top line as a prompt to enter a subscriber number. For radio
communication fleets with long subscriber numbers that differ only in the
last digit, the identical leading digits can be pre-programmed in the radio for
ease of operation. When entering digits via the keypad, the preprogrammed leading digits will then automatically be prepended. If a
completely different subscriber number is to be called, these automatically
prepended digits must first be deleted.
A connection to the PSTN is always set up in duplex mode. In the radio set,
a specific prefix made up of one, two or three digits, e.g. "00" is pre-programmed as a feature. When this prefix is entered, the following digits
are interpreted as a subscriber number.
When entering this prefix, the display switches from "ISSI“ to "PSTN“ (public
switched telephone network) and the subscriber number entered is
displayed in the bottom line without the prefix previously entered (input in
our example: 00 12345).
The display returns to the standard operating display if no other input or confirmation is made within 5
seconds.

TETRA-Handheld Radio BHR 21 PS
9.4 Call Setup
During call setup up to the automatic or manual call acceptance, the
handset icon (in duplex mode) or the radio set icon (in simplex mode) in the
header will flash.
Once the connection has been established, the respective icon will be
displayed permanently and the message "CALL ESTABLISHED" will be
displayed.
If the called subscriber answers when accepting the call, i.e. if he transmits,
the icon R for "Receipt" is displayed in the header and the illuminated ring
on top of the device is also lit in green.
9.5 Using the Phonebook
If the "PhoneB“ softkey is pressed when the radio set is ready for operation,
a telephone directory, i.e. a list of pre-programmed call destinations with the
associated names and subscriber numbers is displayed. The names are
displayed in the list. The desired destination can be selected via the scroll
keys or the rotary switch FS1 and the call can be transmitted by pressing
the PTT button or the M/OK key.
Press the "OK“ softkey to open the selected entry for editing.
When "OK“ is pressed again, the name and subscriber number of the
phonebook entry are displayed.

TETRA-Handheld Radio BHR 21 PS
9.6 Redialling
When the M/OK key (FT6) is pressed in standard operating mode (ready for
operation) of the radio set, a menu for redialling is displayed. The
subscriber number dialled last (138 in our example) is displayed. If several
subscriber numbers have already been dialled and/or calls have already
come in, the menu footer offers direct access to the Called list ("OUT)
and/or to the Calling list ("IN") via the softkeys. In the lists, you can use
either a number you dialled earlier on or the number of a calling party for
redialling.
9.7 Using the Calling List and Called List
If the desired subscriber number has already been dialled after the radio set has been switched on, or
if this subscriber number has called your radio set, a corresponding call can be set up in the Called
list and Calling list submenus. The desired subscriber number can be selected using the scroll keys
(FT7 and FT8) or the rotary switch FS1. Then the call is transmitted via the PPT button or the "OK“ /
M/OK key (FT6). (also refer to Chapter 9.2)
If a subscriber listed in the Calling list is
called, the associated subscriber number /
name is deleted from the Calling list and
saved in the Called list instead.
The entries in the two lists can be deleted
via the Escape/Clear key (FT10).
While group calls are not saved in the
Calling list, the Called list also saves the
called groups.

9.8 Accepting Incoming Voice Calls
An incoming individual voice call is indicated through a call signal (ring
tone).
In addition, an incoming call is displayed as follows:
• Flashing radio set icon for a simplex call, or
• Flashing handset icon for a duplex call or telephone call, and
• The number of the calling party is displayed.
If the number is saved in the phonebook together with a name (Alias), the
corresponding name will be displayed instead of the subscriber number.
Individual calls can be accepted either with the PTT button or with the M/OK
key. If you accepted a call with the PTT button, you can talk at once as long
as you keep pushing the PTT button.
9.9 Connection Status
In an existing simplex connection, the desire to
talk must be signaled to the network infrastructure
by pressing the PTT button. If the call partner is
not transmitting, the permission to transmit is
granted almost immediately, which is signalled
acoustically through a short "blip".
The PTT button must be pressed for as long as
you want to transmit. The voice channel is
released when you stop pressing the PTT button.
While transmitting, a T (Transmit) on a red
background is displayed in the header of the
display, and while receiving, an R (Receive) with
a green background is displayed.
At the same time, the illuminated ring on the top
of the radio set lights up in the corresponding
colour.

10 Group Calls
10.1 General
10.1.1 Group Calls, Selected Group
The term group refers to a selected circle of radio communications subscribers, who are
characterized by an especially close, direct and frequently recurring, task-related communication
relationship. A group call is a voice call that reaches all the radio communications subscribers that
belong to the called group. In a group call, only one radio communications subscriber at a time may
transmit, while all the others receive. A group call can also be established when one or multiple
members of this group cannot be reached because they have another active connection or because
their radio set is switched off.
To facilitate the communication with the group, with the larger part of the
communication takes place, you have the possibility of selecting this group
as your own group in a pre-programmed list (Selected group). When the
radio set is ready for operation, this group is displayed in the bottom line of
the display. The selected group can be dialled simply by pressing the PTT
button.
10.1.2 Scan Lists, Multigroups
In addition to the selected group, each subscriber of a group may also belong to other groups, the
radio communication of which is also heard. The relationship to other groups, however, may be
handled with a different priority. For this purpose, a list of these groups has been pre-programmed in
the radio set. If a radio set is to be used for various applications, it must be possible to toggle
between different lists, i.e. between different multigroups.
In the TETRA radio communications network, the group list with the desired scan properties of each
group are aligned with the infrastructure upon switching on and logging in to the network. In this case,
it may be possible that the user is denied the membership of specific groups or that the radio
communications subscriber is assigned additional groups (dynamic groups). The assignment of
dynamic groups can also occur at any other point of time.
The current status of the scan list or of the groups with their properties in the selected multigroup can
be displayed in the menu system via the path Menu → 4 Groups and changed, if required. Each
change is aligned with the infrastructure.

10.1.3 Selecting a Group, Scan Properties
Turn the Select group switch FS1, press function button FT3 or use the
menu path: Menu → 4 Groups to open the list of groups that belong to the
currently selected multigroup (in this case: "GAS Admin“). In this submenu,
the header displays the pre-programmed designation for the selected
multigroup and below it all the groups with the registered scan priority. Nonpre-programmed, dynamically assigned groups may also be listed here.
A group may be assigned the following properties or scan priorities:
1 (S) Selected (scanned and selected group)
2 (L) Low priority (scanned with low priority)
3 (N) Normal priority (scanned with normal priority)
4 (H) High priority (scanned with high priority)
5 (-) Not scanned
6 (D) Detached (detached by User)
Press softkey FT5 (Edit) to open a Scan Priority submenu for the group
previously selected through scrolling and to select one of the properties
listed above.
Properties that may be displayed but that cannot be edited by the user:
(P)
(BL)
(BS)
(D1)
(D2)
(R)
(?)
Detach permanent (permanent disconnect by basic station)
SwMI locked (locked by basic station)
Always scanned (scanning cannot be disabled)
Detach temporary 1
Detach temporary 2
Detach Rejected
Not (yet) confirmed by infrastructure
If only "Group 12“ (selected in the above example ) is to be scanned and if "Group 11“ is to be
selected in the further process, this is possible directly by scrolling to group 11 in the list of groups
and then confirming your selection with the M/OK key.
Via the path Menu → 5 Multigroups you access the menu for replacing a
multigroup or scan list with another multigroup or scan list. Selection "1 No
group“ detaches all the groups. This means, there will be no participation in
group calls any longer, unless new groups are assigned dynamically by the
infrastructure.

10.2 Establishing a Group Call
Press the PTT button when the radio set is ready for operation to
immediately establish a group call to the group displayed in the bottom line
(in this case, "Group 12").
If a group call is to be established to a group other than the selected group,
this group must be selected in the Groups list. You can access this list via
the Select group rotary switch FS1 or by pressing function button FT3.
In the present example, we want to establish a call to the group "Dispo".
Once the group has been selected using the scroll keys or rotary switch
FS1, press the PTT button to initiate the group call. Note: in this case,
pressing the M/OK key would not result in call setup but would define the
group "Dispo" as the selected group.
10.3 Connection Status
During an active group connection, the name or
number of the called group will be displayed in the
top line of the display.
In the bottom line, first the initiator of the group
call is displayed and then the transmitting radio
communications subscriber with the associated
subscriber number or pre-programmed name.
Example: 132 has called the group "Dispo“
and is transmitting; 138 can see that 132 is
The desire to transmit must be signalled to the network infrastructure by pressing the PTT button. If
no other subscriber is transmitting at this time, a permission to transmit will be sent, indicated
acoustically by a short "blip". Keep pressing the PTT button for as long as you wish to transmit.
During the transmission, the T-icon (Transmit) on a red background is displayed. The illuminated ring
on the top of the radio set will also light up in red during the transmission.
The voice channel is released as soon as the PTT button is not pressed any longer. A "Roger beep"
is to be heard on the connected unit and the green R-icon (Receive) in the display of the receiving
side will go out. Then, another group call subscriber can transmit.

TETRA-Handheld Radio BHR 21 PS
While a group connection is active, the infrastructure broadcasts information on the active group call
in short intervals. This gives every radio communications subscriber scanning this group and who
missed the beginning of the group call, the possibility of joining the group connection later on (Late
entry). This may be the case after leaving a radio shadow or after switching on the device.
If a radio communications subscriber wants to leave an active group connection, e.g. to establish
another call, he simply needs to press the Escape/Clear key (C-key). A group connection is
terminated either through inactivity (timeout) of all the connection subscribers or when the radio
communications subscriber, who initiated the group call, presses the C-key. These functions depend
on the settings in the radio communications network and may have been implemented differently
depending on the manufacturer of the infrastructure.
The end of a group call is displayed in the same way as that of an individual voice call.

11 Status Calls and Text Messages
In TETRA radio communications networks, you have the possibility of transmitting short messages in
the form of data telegrams without occupying a voice channel. In this case, status calls and text
messages or short data (SDS – Short data service) are distinguished. Status calls are transmitted as
a number. This requires that all the radio communications subscribers use the same information
content for the same status number. Generally, this information is pre-programmed in the radio sets.
Text messages (SDS) are free texts that are entered as an alphanumeric character string, i.e. in the
form of text, via the keypad and transmitted as such to the recipient. Status calls and text messages
may be sent to individual radio communications subscribers as well as to groups.
11.1 Receiving Status Calls and SDS
When receiving a status call or SDS, the
messages "State received“ or "SDS received“
as well as the number of the status call or - if
pre-programmed - the corresponding clear
message text (in this example: "Job is finished")
will be displayed.
The envelope icon will flash in the header.
When an SDS has been received, only the beginning of the text will generally be visible since the
complete text message cannot be displayed all at once.
Press the "Text“ softkey to open a new "Text" menu display. In this window the received status
messages or SDS can be read completely, including information on the subscriber number of the
transmitter and the date and time the message was received. Only when this open text window has
been acknowledged with the OK softkey will the flashing SDS icon (letter icon) be switched off in the
standard operating display of the radio set. The message is assumed read. The flashing SDS icon will
be reactivated as soon as a new message arrives.

11.2 Reviewing Status Calls and SDS via the Menu System
The navigation path "Menu → 1 (SDS) → 1 Received“ opens a list of
received status calls and SDS. After selecting the messages of
interest using the scroll keys and confirming your selection with the
"Text" softkey, the complete message text will be displayed. Our
example shows a long SDS.
The scroll bar on the right-hand side of the display means that the ▼
rest of the text, the time and the subscriber number of the text
message transmitter will become visible when scrolling. The
subscriber number of the text message transmitter is identified with
an exclamation mark.
When none of the messages in the list are of interest any longer, the
complete list can be deleted with the C-key.

11.3 Transmitting a Status Call
To transmit a status call, you first have to select the status call to be sent via the navigation path
SDS → Status.
11.3.1 Transmitting a Pre-programmed Status Call
If a status predefined in the selection list is confirmed with OK, a
submenu offers this status for transmission including its complete
text. Press the "back“ softkey to return to the selection menu for
status calls without transmitting the status call.
After confirming the status message with the "Send“ softkey, the
main menu is displayed again and you are prompted to enter the
destination. You can either enter the destination via the keyboard
or you can select a destination in the phonebook.
If the M/OK key is now pressed without having entered a
destination number, the status is transmitted to the subscriber
number you dialled last (enabling of the redialling function).
If the "Send“ softkey is pressed again without having entered a
call destination, the status is sent to your own group (the
"selected group").

If you select "Input“ in the selection menu for status calls, an input menu for a freely selectable status
number (without programmed text context) is displayed. The status number to be sent is entered via
the numeric keypad. Upon confirmation with the "OK“ softkey, the main menu is displayed and a
prompt asks you to enter the call destination for the status message.
When entering the status number, take into consideration that only the
numbers in the range of from 32768 to 61439 are available for free use.

window is opened via the navigation path Menu "SDS“ and the "Edit SDS“. In this window, you can
enter the message via the keyboard.
The text is entered via the keypad. After pressing one of the
alphanumeric keys, an information line will appear in the lower
part of the display showing the character set available for the key
you just pressed. Use the *-key to toggle between upper-case
and lower-case letters as well as other special characters of the
character set..
For upper-case letters, the background of the information line is
yellow-orange, for lower-case letters green, and for special
characters red.
The input is confirmed with the "OK“ key. The menu will then
switch to the main display with the prompt to enter the destination
for the text message.
Once the call destination has been entered, the text message will be
sent as soon as you have confirmed your input with the "Send“
softkey.
