Changing Squelch Modes
Squelch acts as a kind of filtering system which helps
to control the amount of signals the radio receives.
Configuring the radio to receive only the desired sig-
nals minimizes interference from other users of the
same channel.
This radio supports
Carrier Squelch (CSQ), Coded
Squelch - Tone Private-Line (PL)
,
Digital Private-Line
(DPL)
and
Signalling Squelch - Voice Selective Call
(SelCall)
operations on a per channel basis.
Carrier Squelch
transmission allows all radios tuned to
the selected receive channel (frequency) to hear the
conversation.
Coded Squelch
transmission only allows
radio(s) having the same
PL / DPL
code on the
selected receive channel (frequency) to hear the con-
versation. S
ignalling Squelch
transmission can only be
decoded by radios equipped with optional DTMF
Decode boards with valid
Voice Selective Call (Sel-
Call)
identification code (see
“Voice Selective Call
(Optional)”
on page 44).

the default squelch mode for the channel. Each
time you turn the radio off and on again, or when
you switch to another channel and back again, the
radio reverts back to its default squelch mode.
Setting Squelch Level
An open (low) squelch level sets the threshold for the
receiving signal strength to be low. This means that
the radio would receive a great variety of signals, both
weak and strong. A tighter (higher) squelch level
raises the threshold, thus filtering weak signals and
only accepting the stronger ones. To set the squelch
level:
Press .
Rotate the Selector Knob (2) to select the desired
squelch level.
Press the Toggle Light / Enter and Parameter
Transfer Button (4) (or any other button) momen-
tarily to adopt the selected squelch level and return
to normal operating mode.

The radio automatically adopts the new squelch
level and returns to normal operation after 5 sec-
onds of inactivity.

2-Year Warranty
Scan Operations
Scan operation tells the radio to monitor a number of
frequencies or channels. When there are some activi-
ties at a particular frequency or channel, the radio
stops scanning and changes to that frequency or
channel.
Scan modes supported by the radio are:
(i) Programmable Band scan (MHz mode)
(ii) Memory Channel scan (Memory mode)
NOTE
Each frequency or channel is given the same prior-
ity i.e.
non-priority
scan.
IMPORTANT
The radio will not recall the scan state if it is pow-
ered off while scanning.
Programmable Band Scan
In the MHz mode, the radio scans over a prepro-
grammed range of frequencies usually specified in
memory channels 19 and 20.
NOTE
User can specify the frequency range for scanning
by programming the frequency limit into memory
channel 19 (usually the lower limit) and memory
channel 20 (usually the upper limit) (see
“Pro-
gramming A Memory Channel”
on page 32).
Scanning A Frequency Range
In MHz mode:
Scan Operations
35
2-Year Warranty
Press to begin scanning the preprogrammed
frequency range.
NOTE
The frequency range is scanned according to the
frequencies specified in channels 19 and 20, and the
selected frequency step size. If the operating fre-
quency before scanning starts is within the scan
range, the radio starts scanning from that fre-
quency, otherwise, it starts from the frequency
specified by memory channel 19 (or the lowest fre-
quency in the band if channel 19 is blank).
NOTE
When the ‘SCAN’ indicator flashes, scanning is in
progress and the currently scanned frequency is dis-
played.
To change the scan direction:
Rotate the Selector Knob (2) anti-clockwise.
NOTE
If activity is detected, the radio stops scanning and
stays on the active frequency. The ‘SCAN’ indicator
remains on, and you will hear the conversation, pro-
vided the PL/DPL code (if required) is correct.
IMPORTANT
Radio resumes scanning after approximate
5 seconds (even if activity is still received). If
received activity ceases, the radio resumes scan-
ning after another 7 seconds, unless receive activ-
ity resumes.

IMPORTANT
If both memory channels are left blank (unpro-
grammed), the radio scans the entire frequency
band. If channel 19 is programmed but channel 20
is blank, the upper frequency limit becomes the
highest frequency in the band. If channel 20 is pro-
grammed but channel 19 is blank, the lower fre-
quency limit becomes the lowest frequency in the
band. If the frequency stored in channel 19 is lower
than that stored in channel 20, then scan proceeds
in an incrementing order otherwise, scan proceeds
in a decrementing order.

Exposure To Radio Frequency Energy
In August 1996 the Federal Communications Commis-
sion (FCC) adopted updated RF energy exposure
guidelines for wireless products regulated by the FCC.
Those guidelines are consistent with the safety stan-
dards* previously set by both U.S. and international
standards bodies. The design of your Motorola two-
way radio complies with the FCC guidelines and these
standards.
*American National Standards Institute (C95.1 - 1992);
*National Council on Radiation Protection and Measure-
ments (NCRP-1986);
*International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Pro-
tection (ICNRP- 1986)
To assure optimal radio performance and to insure that
exposure to RF energy is within the guidelines in the
above standards, the following operating procedures
should be observed:
For Portable Two-way Radios:
For hand held operation, the radio should be held
in a vertical position with the microphone one to
two inches (2.5 to 5 cm) away from the mouth,
and the antenna should be kept one to two
inches (2.5 to 5 cm) from the head or body when
transmitting.
For body worn operation, the antenna should be
kept at least one inch (2.5 cm) from the body
when transmitting.
Information For Safe, Efficient Operation
63
2-Year Warranty
Electromagnetic Interference/compatibility
Nearly every electronic device is susceptible to elec-
tromagnetic interference (EMI) if inadequately
shielded, designed or otherwise configured for electro-
magnetic compatibility.
Turn your radio OFF in any facilities where
posted notices instruct you to do so. Hospitals or
health care facilities may be using equipment that
could be sensitive to external RF energy.
Turn your radio off when on board aircraft when
instructed to do so. Any use of the radio must be
in accordance with Federal Aviation Administra-
tion (FAA) and FCC regulations or crew instruc-
tions.
CAUTION
Do not use the radio with a damaged antenna. If
a damaged antenna comes into contact with the
skin, a minor burn may result.
All batteries can cause property damage, injury
or burns if a conductive material such as jewelry,
keys or beaded chains touches exposed termi-
nals. The material may complete an electrical cir-
cuit (short circuit) and become quite hot.
Exercise care in handling any charged battery,
particularly when placing it inside a pocket, purse
or other container with metal objects.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Areas with potentially explosive atmospheres are
often, but not always, clearly marked. They include
fuelling areas such as below deck on boats, fuel or
chemical transfer or storage facilities; areas where the
air contains chemicals or particles, such as grain,
dust, or metal powders; and any other area where you
Information For Safe, Efficient Operation
64
2-Year Warranty
would normally be advised to turn off your vehicle
engine.
WARNING
Turn your radio OFF when in any area with a
potentially explosive atmosphere, unless it is a
type especially qualified for such use (for exam-
ple, FMRC Approved). Sparks in such areas
could cause an explosion or fire resulting in
bodily injury or even death.
Do not replace or charge batteries in a hazard-
ous atmosphere. Contact sparking may occur
while installing or removing batteries and cause
an explosion.
Blasting Caps And Areas
WARNING
To avoid possible interference with blasting opera-
tions, turn your radio OFF near electrical blasting
caps or in a “blasting area” or in areas posted: “Turn
off two-way radio”. Obey all signs and instructions.
For Vehicles With An Air Bag
WARNING
An air bag inflates with great force. Do not place
objects, including portable or mobile two-way
radios, in the area over the air bag or in the air bag
deployment area. If improperly installed or placed
wireless equipment is in the air bag deployment
area and the air bag inflates, serious injury could
result.
Recycling / Disposal of NiCd Batteries

Recycling / Disposal of NiCd Batteries
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) clas-
sifies used NiCd batteries as hazardous waste, unless
certain exemptions apply.
At the end of your battery’s useful life, it can be recy-
cled. However, recycling facilities may not be available
in all areas. Under various state or local laws, such
batteries must be recycled or disposed of properly,
and cannot be dumped in landfills or incinerators.

Possible Problem (1): Batteries may be dead (alkaline)
or not properly charged (NiCd).
Solution :If the display does not light, or the
‘BATT’ indicator flashes on and off, you
should replace the alkaline batteries, or
if you are using NiCd batteries, recharge
them.
Possible Problem (2): Batteries may not be positioned
correctly in the radio.
Solution :See “Installing and Removing Batteries”
on page 8 for the appropriate battery
installation instructions.
NiCd battery does not charge or last long enough.
Possible Problem (1): Battery may be incorrectly
charged.
Solution :If you use a desktop charger, make sure
the battery is positioned properly in the
charger base. If you are using a wall
charger, make sure that the LED on the
charger glows red, indicating correct
charging status. See “Charging with Wall
Charger” on page 11 and “Charging with
Desktop Charger” on page 12.
Possible Problem (2): Battery may not be fully
charged.
Solution :Turn radio off while charging battery.
Charging time will be doubled if the
radio is turned on while charging.

Possible Problem (3): The battery life is based on a
duty cycle where the radio is transmitting
5%, receiving 5%, and in standby mode
90% of the time. Usage that differs from this
will change the typical battery life expect-
ancy accordingly.
Solution :If you use your radio for a longer period
of time than the standard duty cycle, you
may need to recharge your battery again.
Possible Problem (4): Battery or charger contacts may
be dirty.
Solution :Clean battery and charger contacts
often.
Alkaline Battery does not last long enough (<10
minutes).
Possible Problem (1): Operating the radio at high
power with alkaline batteries.
Solution :When used with alkaline batteries, the
radio should operate at low power
unless absolutely necessary.
NOTE
It is recommended to operate your radio in Low
Power when using alkaline batteries. Using alkaline
batteries in High Power might result a
Low Battery
Alert
(3 low pitched tones) shortly after transmitting.
This is NOT a malfunction. The alert sounds
because alkaline batteries cannot maintain the
power needed to transmit at High Power for a long
interval. However, APC is immediately activated
when this alert sounds. It automatically adjusts the
radio’s power requirements to maintain the radio’s
operation. Without APC, the radio would instead
reset itself and refuse to transmit.

Radio will not talk to other radios in system.
Possible Problem (1): Radios may be on different fre-
quencies, or having different Coded
Squelch Codes.
Solution :Verify that frequencies and Coded
Squelch Codes are the same for all
radios in your talk group.
Hearing other conversations or noise on your radio.
Possible Problem (1): Users do not have exclusive use
of frequencies. Frequencies must be shared
using proper radio etiquette.
Solution :Use proper radio etiquette.
NOTE
Coded squelch screens out other users’ conversa-
tions on your radio, but other users who share your
frequency may still hear your conversations.
Limited talk range.
Possible Problem (1): Using your radio in basements,
steel structures, concrete buildings, auto-
mobiles, or heavy foliage decreases its
range.
Solution :These are standard characteristics of
transmitters. External magnetic mount
antennas are recommended for best
range when communicating in an auto-
mobile. If the radio supports the High/
Low Power Output option, check that the
radio is not in Low Power Transmit
Mode; the “LOW” indicator on the LCD
lights in this mode.
Troubleshooting

Possible Problem (2): Operating the radio while it is
close to your body (i.e. in a pocket or on a
belt) and while you are using audio acces-
sories decreases its range because of the
shielding effect of your body.
Solution :The higher the radio is held, the better
the talk range. Use of audio accessories
is only recommended in close range sit-
uations for best results.
Possible Problem (3): The Carrier Squelch Level may
be set too high.
Solution :Set the Carrier Squelch Level to a lower
value (see “Setting Squelch Level” on
page 20).
You hear constant static from speaker.
Possible Problem (1): The alkaline batteries may be
weak (or the NiCd battery may be dis-
charged).
Solution :Press and hold the PTT while looking at
the LCD. If the ‘BATT’ indicator flashes
continuously while still holding the PTT,
the batteries should be replaced or
recharged.
Possible Problem (2): When using your radio around
computers or electronic equipment, you
may hear static or interference from these
devices.
Solution :Enable Coded Squelch. Coded squelch
screens out this type of interference (see
“Changing Squelch Modes” on page 18).

toms, without success.
Possible Problem (1): The radio may need to be
repaired.
Solution :If the unit is still under warranty, return it
to the place of purchase for repairs, or
contact your nearest Motorola dealer
listed in your local yellow pages.
