Switching the radio on

To switch the radio on, turn the On/Off-Volume control to about one third of its maximum setting. You may need to re-adjust the volume when you receive your first call

Check to see that the SVC (service) indicator appearssolid in the display within a few seconds. If it does not and it is blinking, you may be outside your network’s coverage area or have a fault.

Using the Microphone and PTT key

During a call, use the PTT key to switch the radio between receive and transmit modes. Press the PTT key to talk, release it to listen.

The TX indicator glows during transmission.



There are 4 ways to make
calls using your T2040

2. Enter a two-digit short dial preset number using the numeric keypad and then press the Hash ( ) key to send the call.

3. Use the Despatcher ( ) and Function ( ) keys which may each be preprogrammed to send a call directly

4. Use an alphanumeric label to select a call identity (see “Alphanumeric Entry mode”).

You may hear call setup tones followed by a ringing tone similar to that of a telephone, and the WAIT indicator may be displayed. When the called party answers, the WAIT indicator is replaced by the GO indicator and you may proceed with your conversation.


Receiving Calls

When you receive a call you will hear two tones This is a Direct Call. When the GO indicator lights, lift the microphone and respond to your caller.

If the call is a group call, you will hear a single ring and then the caller will broadcast a message to all members of your group. It is not always necessary to reply.

The source of an incoming call or the caller’s identity is shown in the display as follows:

Label VEHICLE7 The calling party is one of your preset numbers with a label preprogrammed into your radio.
Preset Number 8 The calling party is one of your network stored preset numbers without a label preprogrammed into your radio.
Call Number 23 The calling party is in the same fleet as your radio but is not preprogrammed.
System Message OFLT The calling party is not in the same fleet as your radio and is not preprogrammed.
System Message PHONE A call from the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network).
System Message PABX A call from the PABX (Private Automatic Branch Exchange).


Returning Calls

If you need to leave your T2040 unattended, you may have it save incoming calls as call-back messages for you to return later. Please note that your radio will be only be programmed with the option if requested it is not a standard option.

To set call queuing on and have all calls except “group, PABX and PSTN” calls queued:

• Press the Despatcher ( 32) key until the indicator beside it illuminates.

4 Make a new outgoing call as normal.

You may restore the radio to normal operation by pressing the Despatcher ( 36) key again until the indicator beside it extinguishes. The radio will now alert you normally when a call is received. If you still have calls saved in the queue, they are preserved and you may recover them at any time by turning call queuing back on.
