Trunking System Controls
Using the Failsoft System
The failsoft system ensures continuous radio communications
during a trunked system failure. If a trunking system fails
completely, the radio goes into failsoft operation and
automatically switches to its failsoft channel.
1During failsoft operation, your radio transmits and receives
in conventional operation on a predetermined frequency.
2A medium-pitched tone sounds every 10 seconds and the
display shows FAILSOFT.
When the trunking system returns to normal operation, your
radio automatically leaves failsoft operation and returns to
Going Out of Range
When your radio goes out of the range of the system, it can no
longer lock onto a control channel.
1A low-pitched tone sounds.
The display shows the currently selected zone/channel
combination and OUT RNG.
2Your radio remains in this out-of-range condition until:
It locks onto a control channel.
It locks onto a failsoft channel.
It is turned off.
