Trying to get an MTS 2000 FLASHPORT to ride a primary channel and scan another channel


Program the scan list in the codeplug. This is a feature that must be programmed into the radio via the dealer programming software. By using the software the dealer will program scanning capabilities and then assign a button on the control head to turn scanning on and off. Every radio can have different features and functions programmed into the radio. If by pressing buttons on the face a "Z" like symbol apears, you've found your scan on/off button.

How do i unlock my two way so i can scan and pick channels


The scan function on an XTN is not to be a scanner, but to scan between channels you have programmed into the radio. The scan feature is only available on the 2600 series. You can manually go to each channel and look for or listen for channel activity. Start with channel 1, when someone else is talking, there is a "busy" indication on the LCD on the radio. You can listen in by pressing the Monitor button. If you are using the factory defaults, you may hear someone without pressing the Monitor button.

CP 200 LED shows it is in scan mode, but does not ...


On the CP200 radio the scan feature must be programmed into one of the side buttons of the radio, plus the channels must be select to be in the scan list. Your radio would need to be reprogrammed to scan the channels you want to scan.

Programming requires a RIB (radio interface box), cable, and Motorola proprietary software. Your local Motorola dealer should have a subscription to this software and be able to program the radio to scan.

Best regards.

How to set channels to scan on motorola ht 1000


On the HT1000, there is an A, B, C toggle switch just under the On/OFF/Volume control knob.

When set to A, the radio is IN the scan mode.

When set to B it is NOT in the scan mode.

When switched to C, it is in the scan program mode. There is a green button on the left side above the PTT switch. When you set it to C, you switch the CHANNEL SELECT knob to the desired freq you want to add to the scan list. When there, you push the green button. ONE push gives you a red indicator light on the top of the radio. A 2nd push gives you a GREEN light displayed. A 3rd push gives you NOTHING lit up.

The 1st push (RED light) means you have selected THIS freq as your PRIORITY channel of your scan list when scanning.

The 2nd push (GREEN light) means it is just IN the list, not as a priority channel.

NO light means it is NOT entered into the scan list.

Once you have your list set up, simply flip the A,B,C switch back up to A and you're scanning what you selected.

HOWEVER All of the above is dependent on whether or not the ORIGINAL setup programming from the factory set the radio up for these features to work. If it WASN'T set up that way, you'll have to have it reprogrammed to activate the buttons and the toggle switch for those features to work.

HT 1000 Set Scan mode


First, your radio must have one of the side buttons programmed to be scan on/off. You will need to experiment while one or more of the channels is active and press the side button to see if it puts you in scan mode.

If it is, most likely a short press turns on scan, and a long press would be nuisance channel delete. This feature will temporarily eliminate a channel out of your scan list for the time your have your radio turned on. Once you shut the unit off and turn it back on, it would return to the original setting.

The only way to have a button programmed for scan/nuisance channel delete, is to us Motorola propritary software available to dealers and certain businesses and governement agencies. If you are needing to turn on scan or change a scan list, you would need to have the radio reprogrammed. This typically will cost between $25 and $40 at more dealerships.

How do I set a channel to scan


Take your radio to your local Motorola dealer for reprogramming. Usually the capacity of a scan zone is 16 channels. I am not certain on this radio without doing some research. Your local dealer will be able to help.
