Refer to the SABER SERVICE AIDS list in Appendix- 7 for all the service aids, service tools, and recommended test equipment that you may require to program, align, and test SABER radios.

  • Page 27: Service/alignment Menu

    Sections VI-B, VI-C, and VI-D explain in detail the function and procedure for aligning the radio, channels, and scan controls. MOTOROLA Radio Service Software SABER Model: Ver.

  • Page 28: Align Radio Parameters

    Note that on certain alignment procedures, the last step states "Reprogram radio." This means that after all alignment is completely finished, you must reprogram the radio. You do not have to reprogram the radio after each parameter is aligned. MOTOROLA Radio Service Software SABER Model Ver.

  • Page 29: Oscillator Warp

    Each parameter can be adjusted one of three ways: The UP arrow key will increase the parameter value. The DOWN arrow key will decrease the parameter value. The PGUP key will increase the parameter with a rate increase of 10% present value. The PGDN key will decrease the rate of decrease by 10 % present value.

  • Page 30: Power Level

    2. Power Level Four different power levels can be adjusted in the SABER radio - the low, medium, high, and special power levels. (Each channel in the radio can have unique power level assignments made on the Radio Channel Information screen described in Section VIII-C. ) Note that the standard low and high power settings for UHF are 2.0W to 5.0W respectively, and for VHF the power settings are 2.5W to 6.0W respectively.

  • Page 31: Low Battery Threshold

    Low Battery Threshold Low Battery Threshold determines at what voltage level the LED will blink to indicate that the battery voltage has fallen below the preprogrammed value in transmit mode. On the display of your radio, you will see a battery flashing symbol. When aligning Low Battery Threshold, you will not be able to test the voltage level until you reprogram the radio first.

  • Page 32: Audio Processing

    Other values for the Battery Save Squelch level may be selected with the RSS. The squelch values can range from $00 to $0F where $00 is the minimum squelch setting. (d) To ensure the radio is in the battery save Mode, wait until the radio unmutes at carrier and wait the proper dwell time before injecting a signal at the specific level for testing.

  • Page 33: Dtmf Dial Delay

    DTMF Dial Delay This parameter controls the DTMF pretime. Its value ranges from $00 to $FF in steps of 1. To see the effect of the change, the radio must first be reprogrammed. (a) Follow the setup procedure in Section VI-A, Fig. 8. (b) Determine the dial delay desired and use the UP/DOWN or PGUP/PGDN arrow keys to increase/decrease this delay.

  • Page 34

    (b) Before proceeding, you must have previously aligned the VCO and Reference Modulation. If you have not done this yet, press ESC to return to the SERVICE menu, then follow the instructions in the section "Align Channel." Upon returning to the SERVICE menu, reselect "Align Radio"...

  • Page 35: Microphone Gain

    11. MICROPHONE GAIN This parameter is used when sending out the voice signal. There are 4 different values from which you can choose : -3 dB, 0 dB (default), +3 dB, and +6 dB. The radio has to be reprogrammed to see the effect of the change. This will only work on radios with the H852, 6D master option enabled or the H549, 8D master option enabled.

The lower portion of the screen contains some additional information that will be helpful in the alignment process.

  • Page 38: Vco And Reference Modulation Alignment

    2. VCO and Reference Modulation Alignment When adjusting deviation, two separate adjustments are required - one for VCO modulation and the other for REFERENCE modulation. When aligning VCO and Reference Modulation, you can measure the deviation during the alignment process or in "real time." You do not have to reprogram the radio to measure the change.

  • Page 39: Battery Save Enable

    "Reprogram radio," this means AFTER all aligning is completely finished you must reprogram the radio. You do not have to reprogram the radio after each parameter is aligned. MOTOROLA Radio Service Software SABER Model Ver.

  • Page 40: Scan Monitor Hold Time

    The only function key here that needs to be explained is PRINT SCREEN (F5) which will print out a hard copy of the screen shown. Each parameter can be adjusted one of three ways: The UP arrow key will increase the parameter value. The DOWN arrow key will decrease the parameter value.

  • Page 41: Scan Receive Response Time

    Scan Receive Response Time After a message is received while scanning, a programmable time interval (0 to 60 seconds in 1 second steps) will be in effect called the Receive Response Time. Within this time, the radio will not resume scan but will continue to monitor the mode of the last received message due to the likelihood of receiving (or wanting to transmit) a response.

  • Page 42: Scan Priority Squelch

    4. Scan Priority Squelch This value corresponds roughly to the squelch values which are 'aligned' using the align channel window of the Radio Service Software. The priority squelch level is used when checking priority channels while the radio is unmuted on an active channel. Sensitivity to priority channels in the unmuted state is affected by this value.

  • Page 43: Get/save/program Codeplug Data From/to Disk/codeplug

    DOS Mute Timer DOS (Data Operated Squelch) is the radio's ability to mute the audio while examining the MDC data packet that precedes many transmissions. This eliminates the miscellaneous noise at the beginning of an incoming transmission that would otherwise be heard. When selecting this option, you will be prompted for a timer value between 100 and 1500 milliseconds, in 5 millisecond steps.
