14 ASTRO ® Digital Spectra ® /Spectra Plus Model W4 Scan Phon Dir Srch Del Lock Sts Msg Rcl Rpgm Page Site Call Zone Zn Up Zn Dn SelEmer Time-out Timer 1.All ASTRO Digital Spectra models provide a time-out timer function that prevents locking up a repeater or channel by prolonged keying of the transmitter. You cannot transmit longer than the preset timer setting. If you attempt to do so, the radio automatically stops your transmission, and you hear a prohibit tone. Notes: You will hear a brief, low-pitched, warning tone four seconds before the transmission times out. The timer is set for 60 seconds. 7 A DISP

It does NOT work on conventional channels (FDTA - talk-around). 2.Press the PTT button and announce your emergency. Note: Other radios in the same mode will see the message “EMER RCV’ indicating that another user has activated his/her Emergency button. To end an emergency call: 1.Press and hold the Emergency (Red Dot) button until a tone sounds. Emergncy is no longer displayed, and the radio returns to normal operation. Emergncy

A continuous low-pitched tone sounds until a valid emergency mode is selected or until the emergency is cancelled. 4.When an emergency is active, changing to another mode where emergency is enabled causes an emergency to become active in the new mode. No Ack

17 ASTRO ® Digital Spectra ® /Spectra Plus Model W4 Scan Phon Dir Srch Del Lock Sts Msg Rcl Rpgm Page Site Call Zone Zn Up Zn Dn SelEmer Announcement Call (Trunked) 1 of 2 The announcement capability allows a user to make announcements to the entire announcement group. All Announcement calls use ruthless preemption. 1.When an announcement call is initiated, the requesting radio begins transmitting immediately. 2.All associated talk-group calls taking place on other channels are immediately halted, and the radios are steered to the announcement call. Notes: When the announce group function is initiated, radios continue to transmit until the PTT button is released. At that time, these radios also become capable of receiving announcement calls. Individual calls (Private Conversation and telephone interconnect) are not affected.

25 ASTRO ® Digital Spectra ® /Spectra Plus Model W4 Smart PTT (Conventional Only) Smart PTT is a per-channel, programmable feature used in conventional radio systems to keep radio users from talking over other radio conversations. When Smart PTT is enabled on your radio, you are not able to transmit on an active channel. If you try to transmit on an active Smart PTT channel, you hear an alert tone, and the transmission is inhibited. OperationSmart PTT Variation You can override the transmit-inhibit state by quick-keying the radio—two PTT button presses within the preprogrammed time limit Quick-key override You cannot transmit if any traffic is detected on the channel. Transmit inhibit on busy channel with carrier Two radio-wide variations of smart PTT are used:

26 ASTRO ® Digital Spectra ® /Spectra Plus Model W4 Scan Phon Dir Srch Del Lock Sts Msg Rcl Rpgm Page Site Call Zone Zn Up Zn Dn SelEmer Direct/Talk-Around (Radio-to-Radio) To talk directly to another unit without going through the repeater system: 1.Press the Dir button. The DIR indicator illuminates, indicating that the radio is now transmitting directly to another unit. 2.To return to repeater operation, press the Dir button again. The DIR indicator is no longer displayed. Note: This feature is only available for conventional channels that support repeater operation. FDTA does not support repeater operation. 13G ICALL DIR

27 ASTRO ® Digital Spectra ® /Spectra Plus Model W4 Scan Phon Dir Srch Del Lock Sts Msg Rcl Rpgm Page Site Call Zone Zn Up Zn Dn SelEmer List View (Scan) To view a scan list: 1.Press and hold the Scan button until the scan indicator blinks and a valid-key tone is heard. The radio suspends scanning while a scan list is being reviewed. 2.Turn the Mode knob to scroll up or down through the programmed modes and use the arrow buttons to move through the zones. 3.Press the Home or Scan button momentarily to exit the scan list and resume scanning. 7 A DISP

28 ASTRO ® Digital Spectra ® /Spectra Plus Model W4 Scan Phon Dir Srch Del Lock Sts Msg Rcl Rpgm Page Site Call Zone Zn Up Zn Dn SelEmer Scan On To turn scan on: 1.Press the Scan button. The scan indicator lights and a list of modes is scanned for activity. When a scanned mode becomes active, the display changes to show the active mode name, the ‘N Pri’ indicator lights, and the radio volume returns to normal. 7 A DISP

29 ASTRO ® Digital Spectra ® /Spectra Plus Model W4 Scan Phon Dir Srch Del Lock Sts Msg Rcl Rpgm Page Site Call Zone Zn Up Zn Dn SelEmer Scan – Transmit While Scan Is On To transmit while scan is on: 1.Press the microphone PTT button at any time to transmit on the selected mode.

30 ASTRO ® Digital Spectra ® /Spectra Plus Model W4 Scan Phon Dir Srch Del Lock Sts Msg Rcl Rpgm Page Site Call Zone Zn Up Zn Dn SelEmer Out-of-Range Indication If your radio is out of range of the system and can no longer lock onto a control channel, - OR - If your radio is in Failsoft and cannot lock onto the Failsoft channel: If either of the previous events occur, the end-user can expect: an alternating display of the currently selected zone/mode and Out Rng, and/or a low-pitched tone sounds every six seconds. Out Rng

31 ASTRO ® Digital Spectra ® /Spectra Plus Model W4 Scan Phon Dir Srch Del Lock Sts Msg Rcl Rpgm Page Site Call Zone Zn Up Zn Dn SelEmer Site Trunking In a SmartZone system such as ours, if the zone controller fails, the site enters into a site-trunking operational mode. All radios will alternately display Ste Trnk with the current mode of display when site trunking becomes active. Additionally, the radio also sounds a valid-key tone when it first detects site trunking. 1.In this mode of operation, all console functionality is lost at ECC. This includes PTT IDs, Emergency Alarm annunciation, talk-group patching, and phone patching. 2.When site-trunking is active, ECC communicates with field users on backup mobile radios mounted in the ECC consoles. 3.The system will continue to trunk the channel so all talk-groups will still be available. Ste Trnk

32 ASTRO ® Digital Spectra ® /Spectra Plus Model W4 Scan Phon Dir Srch Del Lock Sts Msg Rcl Rpgm Page Site Call Zone Zn Up Zn Dn SelEmer Failsoft 1 of 2 If a trunking system experiences a control system failure, the radio will revert to Failsoft operation. In this mode, the radio automatically switches to the assigned Failsoft channel for the talk-group on which the radio is operating. Your display will alternately flash FAILSOFT and the talk-group to which your radio is set. NOTE: During this event, your radio will emit a medium-pitched tone every 10 seconds. Failsoft

33 ASTRO ® Digital Spectra ® /Spectra Plus Model W4 Scan Phon Dir Srch Del Lock Sts Msg Rcl Rpgm Page Site Call Zone Zn Up Zn Dn SelEmer Failsoft 2 of 2 To continue communicating with other talk-groups, one must: 1.change the mode to a different repeater frequency, and 2.press the PTT button to talk; release the button to listen.
