    It's all dependent on the programming of the radio, and how it was setup.

    Contact your local radio shop.

    Uh, and what about programming it with the channels you want to listen to and what each button and switch should do? You realize you can't just buy a random radio and expect it to magically start doing what you want?

    Probably that they are old and outdated. Unless the department operates on UHF you might as well use it for a door stop.

    They make better moorings than doorstops.

    Yea I don't think you know what you're talking about because that makes no sense at all. The HT1000 is a very capable, robust, programmable radio and they're available on a lot more than UHF. They were only discontinued in 2007 and remain of the best modern portable radios Motorola ever made. They are anything but doorstops and moorings.

    The OP needs to answer the questions that Res343cue and I asked if he wants accurate help.

    We have the HT1000's in the 8000MHz range as our portables on the rigs. The officers and the two new rigs have the XTS 1500's.

    The Massachusetts Firefighting Academy uses them in the fireground operations for live fire training. They take a beating in the literal and figurative sense, with constatnt exposure to fire, heat, smoke at water.

    During one of the phase 4 recruit burn days, the HT1000 I was carrying fell out of my radio pocket as I was leaning forward and talking to one of the instrcutors from the thirdfloor of the building building, it fell a good 30 feet before hitting concrete. The battery casing cracked, but the radio still transmitted and recieved.

    To the OP.. as others have stated.. the radio has to be programmed for the frequencies. It is a matter of hooking it to a technician's computer and setting it up.You can probably get the owner's manual from Motorola by going to their website.

    go the company website and look for the manual. Or call them. Someone in India will get a manual out to you.

    You might be able to find one from Motorola or try this site.

    They are still good working radios even if a lot of departments have gone to the 800 trunking system, they still will work in areas and departments that haven't.

    An instruction manual will be of no use. The only thing it will teach is how to screw the antenna on and turn up the volume. ALL functions of all controls are programmed using computer software and a programming interface. The instruction manual can not tell you anything about what the buttons and switches do because it is up to the end user to decide and have it programmed as such.

    There is absolutely nothing the OP can do with this radio without someone qualified and equiped hooking it up to a computer to see what it is and make the appropriate changes.
