MOTOTRBO Test Modes

Non–Display Model Test Mode

3.4.1 Entering Non–Display Radio Test Mode
1. Turn the radio on.
2. Within 10 seconds after “Self Test” is complete, press Side Button 2 five times in succession.
3. The radio beeps.
3.4.2 RF Test Mode
When the radio is operating in its normal environment, the radio’s microcontroller controls the RF
channel selection, transmitter key-up, and receiver muting, according to the customer codeplug
configuration. However, when the unit is on the bench for testing, alignment, or repair, it must be
removed from its normal environment via a special routine, called TEST MODE or “air test”.
1. Each short press of Side Button 2 changes the test environment (CSQ->TPL->DIG->USQ
->CSQ). The radio beeps once when radio toggles to CSQ, beeps twice for TPL, beeps three
times for DIG and beeps four times for USQ.
NOTE: DIG is digital mode and other test environments are analog mode as described in Table 3-3.
2. Each short press of Side Button 1 toggles the channel spacing between 25 KHz, 12.5 KHz
and 20 KHz as. The radio beeps once when radio toggles to 20KHz, beeps twice for 25KHz
and beeps three times for 12.5KHz.
3. Turning of the Channel Knob changes the test channel from 1 to 14 as described in
Table 3-4. The radio beeps in each position.
3.4.3 LED Test Mode
1. Press and hold Side Button 1 in RF Test Mode. The radio beeps once.
2. Upon any button/key press, the radio lights up the red LED.
3. Consequently, upon any button/key press, the red LED is turned off and the radio turns on the
green LED.
4. Consequently, upon any button/key press, the green LED is turned off the radio shall turn on
both LEDs.
3.4.4 Speaker Tone Test Mode
1. Press and hold Side Button 1 after LED Test Mode. The radio beeps once.
2. The radio generates a 1 KHz tone with the internal speaker.

Restricted Access to System (RAS)

From January 2013 MOTOTRBO® System Release Notes:

 

Restricted Access to System (RAS): prevents an unauthorized subscriber from using the repeaters in the radio system and listening to repeater outbound voice/data/CSBK transmission, through the use of RAS Key authentication and Radio ID Range Check. This feature is supported on all MOTOTRBO subscriber platforms, as well as on XPR8300, XPR8400, XPR8380 and MTR3000 repeaters.

 

There are a number of ways that this feature can be configured but essentialy, a 6-24 character key (RAS Key) is provisioned in all radios. In order to gain access to a system, the key in the radio must match that in the repeater. If there is a mismatch, transmissions from the radio unit will be ignored and the radio unit will disregard transmissions from the repeater/system. This feature can also be deployed in a phased approach where the repeater will support a mixed fleet of radio which, do and do not, support RAS.

DMRDecode Info

For the people that use a small java DMR decoder, so of the info displayed is hard to understand. Some things to keep in mind…

 

CACH = Common Announcement CHannel
TACT = TDMA Access Channel Type
EMB = EMBedded Signalling Field
PDU = Protocol Data Unit

Capacity Plus vs. Connect Plus TRBO

Capacity Plus– For small scale TRBO Trunking.

With a software upgrade you have the ability for those slots to be dynamically assigned. Each repeater needs its own frequency pair. 2 repeaters would get you 4 slots to trunk etc… You connect the repeaters together through a network switch and the software does all the work of assigning an available slot for a transmission.

***In the recent firmware update you now have the capability of
linked capacity plus trunking.***

Capacity Plus Facts

  • Delivers 2 times the capacity of a MOTOTRBO digital conventional systems.
  • Trunks” up to 12 digital voice talk paths.
  • Allows up to 24 additional dedicated data paths
  • Accommodates up to 1,200 radios.

Connect Plus– Large scale trunking application.

Multi-site digital trunking system. Queue calls during busy times until an open channel is available, assign important users priority status when the system is in high demand.

***The connect plus system requires expensive controller and fewers sites in an overall network.***

Connect Plus Facts

  • Dedicated control slot
  • Fast access
  • Dynamic site roaming (No need to change channels)
  • High security
  • 15 repeaters per trunking site (29 voice/data talk paths)
  • 35 trunking sites in a flexible system topology.
  • ESN system access verification.

Motorola Software Region Codes

I’ve managed to find out what the regions letters mean :

LA = Latin America
FD = Federal
MD = EMEA MDC (Europe, Middle East, Africa & More Developed Countries)
AA = North America
AZ = Asia
