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.
In order to get the most out of your new radio, read this reference guide completely before attempting to operate the radio.
Turning the Radio On and Adjusting the Volume

2) To change the volume level press the volume/monitor up or down key to increase or decrease the volume level.
3) Press and hold the key to turn the radio OFF.
Adjusting the Sound (Key Beeps)
Your radio emits a beep each time one of the keys (except for the PTT button and call key) is pressed. The sound of the Key Beep will increase or decrease depending on the volume level setting.
To turn OFF this beep:

Channel Scan Feature
Your GMR325-2 radio has a channel Scan feature that allows you to easily Scan all 22 channels. When an active channel is detected, the unit will pause on that channel until the channel is clear. Then after a 2 second delay, the unit will continue scanning.

Talking on Your Radio
To talk to others using the radio: 1) Press and hold the PTT button and speak in a clear, normal voice about 2-3 inches away from the microphone.
While you are transmitting the tx icon is displayed. To avoid cutting off the first part of your transmission, pause slightly after pressing the PTT button before you start talking.
2) When you are finished speaking, release the PTT button.You can now receive incoming calls. While receiving, the rx icon is displayed.
Transmitting a Call Alert Tone
Your GMR325-2 radio is equipped with a call tone that will be transmitted when the call key is pressed.
To transmit the call alert tone, press the call key.
The tone will automatically be transmitted for a fixed length of time.
Auto Squelch Feature
The GMR325-2 is equipped with an automatic squelch system which shuts off weak transmissions and unwanted noise due to terrain conditions or if you have reached your range limit.
Monitor Mode Feature
Your GMR325-2 radio allows you to listen for weak signals on the current channel at the press of a key.

Automatic Power Save Feature
Your GMR325-2 has a unique circuit designed to dramatically extend the life of the batteries. If there is neither transmission nor an incoming call within 2 seconds, your radio switches to the Power Save mode. The radio is still able to receive transmissions in this mode.
Press and hold the call key until the "L" appears. After 1 second, the LCD will return to the channel display. To exit Keylock on mode, press and hold call again.
Note: While in keylock on mode, it will still receive transmissions.
Roger Beep is a BEEP that is sent to notify the end of transmission. Roger Beep can be heard through the speaker when Key Beep is on. Roger Beep is transmitted even if key beep is turned off. However Roger Beep will not be heard from the speaker.
To turn OFF Roger Beep: Press and hold the channel/scan up Key while turning on the radio.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
