Easy Pairing This feature allows a group of radio users to program all their radios to the same Channel and Sub-Code settings quickly and simultaneously. Any one radio within the group can be designated as the “Leader’s radio” and have it’s Channel and Sub-Code settings transmitted to and copied by all the other radios in the group (Members’ radios). Note:

  • When the leader radio has no sub-code feature, such as this radio (T42), all radios in the group will have their sub-code set to 0 (Disable). When the sub-code is set to 0, all transmissions on the selected channel will be heard, regardless of the transmitting radio sub-code setting.
  1. Pick any one of the radios as the “Leader’s radio”. On this radio, program the Channel and Sub-Code to the desired settings. See “Selecting the Channel” and “Selecting the Sub-Code” sections in this user manual. The sub-code for T42 radio is fixed at zero and cannot be programmed.
  2. To copy the channel and Sub-Code combination to all the other “Members’ radios”, press and hold the MOTOROLA Talkabout Owner's Manual - Manuals+ (28)button on the Members’ radios until you hear a beep. Release the button after the beep, and wait for the transmission from the Leader’s radio. Note: You will see the MOTOROLA Talkabout Owner's Manual - Manuals+ (29)icon blinking on the display. This confirms that the radio is in Easy Pairing mode waiting to receive the Channel and Sub-Code settings from the Leader’s radio. All Members’ radios will remain in this mode for 3 minutes. A group with many radios should have all users take this step at the same time, so all radios can be programmed in one go.
  3. On the Leader’s radio, press and hold down theMOTOROLA Talkabout Owner's Manual - Manuals+ (30) button until you hear a double beep.

Note:

  • At the double beep, this radio’s Channel and Sub-Code settings will be transmitted, which will be received and copied by all the other (Members’) radios.
  • The Leader’s radio must make this transmission when all the Members’ radios are still in the Easy Pairing mode, otherwise the transmission will not be picked up.
  • On the Leader’s radio, user must remember not to release the button on the first (single) beep, otherwise this radio will become another Member’s radio. If that happens, you can press PTT to escape, and retry the steps described in #3 again.
  • If the Leader’s radio is set to a channel between 9 and 16, please ensure that all Members’ radios have channels 9 to 16 activated.
  • When a Member’s radio with only eight Channels is being Easy-Paired by a Leader’s radio on Channel 9 or above, Easy-Pairing will fail, indicated by three short beeps, and “rr” is displayed briefly.
  • When the Leader’s radio does not have sub-code feature, all members’ radios will have their sub-code set to zero (Disable). When a radio subcode is set to zero, all transmissions received on the channel will be sent to the speaker, regardless of the sub-code embedded in the transmission.
  • This radio (T42) does not have sub-code feature and is not compatible with radios with sub-code enabled. Please ensure all radios in the group have their sub-code disabled (Sub-code is set to Zero). With Easy pairing, either use T42 as the leader, or ask the Leader to set sub-code to zero before performing easy pairing.
