How do I set a channel to scan

I have a MTS2000 used on a trunked system. When the unit is in scan mode 4 of the 16 channels scan. I need to add another channel to the scan mode. Can you help?

P.S. On the front of the radio below the display there are six (6) buttons. The top 3 buttons have a black dot on them. The bottom 3 have a left arrow on the left button, the middle button is "Home" and the right button has a right arrow.

Thanks, Jim

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.

To turn OFF Roger Beep: Press and hold the channel/scan up Key while turning on the radio.

MTS non trunking made into a trunking system


Trunking radios are controlled by logging on to a central control - for use unless you have a trunking network with repeaters set up (costs a lot of money) stick to the non trunking versions - they can be reprogrammed to your frequencies and are very useable. without connection to a trunking network the Trunk versions would be better used as a door stop as they are very limited for re-use

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.

About mts2000 i


The MTS2000 is a dealer programmable radio, there is no way to know what is in channel 4. You would need to have the radio read-out by a dealer, the print-out from the original programming or know who the dealer was and call them.

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.

Hi,

Yes, but depends on the configuration/setup and programming/frequency assignation of the MTS2000.

To my knowledge, the UHF version of the Motorola MTS2000 are designed to operate either in the 403~470Mhz or the 450~512 or 520MHz band.

On the other hand, Motorola TalkAbout Radio are design limited to operate in the FRS band which is 462.5625~462.7250MHZ and/or the GMRS band which is 462.550~467.725.

So technically, both the MTS2000 and the FRS/GMRS share some frequencies. What needs to be done is to re-program the frequency allocation of the MTS2000 into its channels to match the TalkAbouts frequencies. The other way around is not possible. TalkAbouts frequency assignments can not be reprogrammed/changed. Below are typical TalkAbout Channels/Frequencies.de11c4e.jpg

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
