  5. 5. MOTOTRBO Release 2.4A June 2015 5 HOME CHANNEL REMINDER Operation No reminder Switched to the Home Channel before the timer expires Away from the “Home” channel due to: • Channel revert (e.g. Data, Telemetry) • Scan • Roaming While Transmitting and Receiving Program mode, Test and Service mode, Front Panel Programming mode While in Locked or Inhibit state Reminder sounded Use manually changes the radio channel and has not switched to Home Channel before the timer expires

Buttons • Set a button to: − Assign a new Home Channel* − Silence Home Channel Reminder 4. Voice Announcements • Set pre-recorded Announcement or Text to Speech for the Home Channel Reminder 3. Menu • Give users access to Assign a new Home Channel* via radio Menu * This Home Channel assignment is only for the Home Channel Reminder. It does NOT change Home Channel Revert assignment (which is only CPS programmable)
  7. 7. MOTOTRBO Release 2.4A June 2015 7 HOME CHANNEL REMINDER Radio Menu settings Programming * This Home Channel assignment is only for the Home Channel Reminder. It does NOT change Home Channel Revert assignment (which is only CPS programmable) Radio users can be given access to Assign a new Home Channel* via radio Menu 1. Menu > Utilities > Radio Settings 2.

  8. 8. MOTOTRBO Release 2.4A June 2015 3: Hardware Introductions and System Support Features 8 ROAMING RSSI PER SITE FOR IP SITE CONNECT AND LINKED CAPACITY PLUS Roaming RSSI per Site is supported by the following subscribers: Portables XPR 3500 XPR 3300 XPR 7550 XPR 7350 XPR 7550IS SL7000’s Mobiles XPR 2500 XPR 5350 XPR 5550
  9. 9. MOTOTRBO Release 2.4A June 2015 9 Roaming RSSI per site in IPSC & LCP • Helps reduce audio holes or missed calls due to frequent roaming between sites • If the current RSSI is higher than the CPS configured roaming RSSI threshold, the radio will not roam. • When roaming, the radio will use the relative RSSI value = current RSSI – CPS configured roaming RSSI value to decide which site to roam to. • Some test trials may be needed to find the optimum roaming RSSI values for each site Problem: In urban areas and hilly terrains - different antenna sites have different coverage. Using one Roaming RSSI level for an entire IPSC or LCP system, makes radios roam too early or stay on a site too long. Solution: Let Roaming RSSI levels be set individually for each site XPR 6300 XPR 4300 XPR 7550 IS XPR 3300 CP200d XPR 6100 XPR 3500 XPR 6500 XPR 7500 XPR 7300 XPR 6580 IS XPR 2500 XPR 4500 XPR 5300 XPR 5500 CM300d CM200d SL 7500 SL300

  23. 23. MOTOTRBO Release 2.4A June 2015 23 Trill Enhancement Radio industry standard AMBE2 vocoder algorithm does not reproduce well the Trill (rolling “r”) sound in Latin languages (e.g. Spanish, Italian) and transforms it into a flattened “r” which has been described by some as “drunk speech”. Trill Enhancement is now available for SL300: • Additional audio processing is applied in the transmitting radio to enhance the sharpness of the rolling “r” so speech is clearer and more intelligible • Languages which do not include the Alveolar Trill will receive minimal benefit from this feature • To enable: i. CPS: General Settings > Audio Profile ii. On/Off assigned to programmable button
