    Mobile radios known as the “bricks” to operate together with a single O7 Control Head. The APX Dual-Radio only supports APX7500, APX6500, and APX6500Li transceivers, and it allows users to mix and match models across tiers and power levels. For example, an APX7500 High- Power radio can operate with an APX6500 Mid-Power radio.

  • Page 14: Apx Dual-radio Software

    APX Dual-Radios are considered to be “In-Band” when at least one frequency band of one radio overlaps with any one band of the other radio (single or dual band). APX Dual-Radios are considered to be “Cross-Band” when entirely different frequency bands exist for the two radios (single or dual band).

  • Page 17: Chapter 2 Apx Mobile Dual-radio Operation

    The Unselected Radio is normally in the receive, scan, or emergency state. Customers connect the two APX Mobile radios to each other via a short CAN cable, and connect an O7 Control Head to one of the radios.

  • Page 18: O7 Control-head Operation

    User's Guide (68012006034) for detailed information regarding the use and operation of the APX Mobile Radio with the O7 Control Head. All radio features which are normally accessible with a O7 Control Head, are supported in a APX Dual-Radio System unless otherwise noted in this manual. 2.3.1 Display The display shows the status of the currently selected mobile radio.

  • Page 19: Backlight

    The split screen is used to indicate the status of both radios in system. The APX Dual-Radio icon represents the selected radio, and shows the different states of the receiving radio. The receiving icon on the vertical banner indicates that the unselected radio is receiving, and user needs to do Radio Swap to talk.

  • Page 20: Ptt Operation

    NOTE: a) Simulcast operation, where both radios transmit simultaneously, is not supported. b) If the APX Dual-Radio is on “In-Band” combination, and the selected radio is transmitting, the unselected radio’s speaker is muted.

  • Page 21: Gun Lock

    2.4.6 Advanced Unmute Rule For APX Dual Radio In-Band combinations, when one radio is transmitting voice, the other radio will automatically mute but can still play tones and Voice Announcement. For APX Dual Radio Cross-band combinations, customers are given the option of having the other radio mute or remain unmuted.

  • Page 22: Radio Profile

    2.4.11 Model Display While powering up, the O7 Control Head displays the model of the radio, for example APX7500, APX6500 or APX6500 Li. For APX Dual-Radio, it only displays the model of the Primary radio. 2.4.12 Data Terminal Data terminals can connect either to the transceiver or to the control head. If connected to the control head, the data terminal sets up a connection with the Primary Radio only.

  • Page 23: Button Configuration

    For CPS programming, a Primary Radio or a Secondary Radio can be powered independently in a standalone configuration, or can be connected in an APX Dual-Radio System. When connected in an APX Dual-Radio System, the radios cannot be programmed simultaneously. When one radio enters program mode, the other radio will not be allowed to enter program mode until the Dual-Radio System resets.

    Codeplug Configuration: Overview 3.1.2 Configuring APX Dual-Radio Emergency Operation User selects which radio in a Dual-Radio configuration will handle the Emergency Mode Operation. It could be either the currently selected radio or the pre-determined Primary or Secondary Radio. This feature applies on a radio-wide basis.

    Codeplug Configuration: Overview Figure 3-2. APX Dual-Radio Emergency Mode Operation Configuration There are three selections for the Emergency Radio as follows: 1. Selected Radio - When Emergency Mode is activated, the emergency transmission is sent on the currently user selected radio.

  • Page 28: Enabling Secondary Radio Transmission

    Enabling Secondary Radio Transmission The APX Dual-Radio CPS provides the capability to enable and disable the Secondary Radio transmission. It allows the Secondary Radio in APX Dual-Radio to transmit on the current channel, and this feature works on a Radio Wide basis.

  • Page 29: Configuring Cross Band Mute Operation

    3.1.5 Configuring Cross Band Mute Operation The Cross Band Mute Operation causes the speaker of the unselected radio in an APX Dual-Radio configuration to remain muted to receive audio, when the currently selected radio is transmitting voice and both radios are operating in a “cross-band” combination (operating in completely different frequency bands).

  • Page 30: Enabling Fixed Swap Menu

    Codeplug Configuration: Overview 3.1.6 Enabling Fixed Swap Menu Enables a “Radio Swap” menu selection to always appear in the left-most menu position of the control head in a Dual-Radio configuration, even when the radio user scrolls through the soft-menu buttons. Figure 3-6.

  • Page 31: Chapter 4 Troubleshooting

    If the error cannot be recovered, the radio keeps resetting before it enters the maintenance mode. See Chapter 3, "Codeplug Configuration" details on codeplug configuration. The improper APX Dual-Radio setup can have any of the following radio combination: • two Primary Radios •...

  • Page 32: Control Head Id Error

    Control Head ID Error The APX Dual-Radio only allows the O7 Control Head ID to be set to #1. If the ID is not set as required, “CH ID# ERR” shall be displayed and the radio is not able to function. User can use the control head Front Panel Programming feature to change the control head ID.

  • Page 33: Error Display

    Note: 01, 02, or 09 denotes a failure on the Primary Radio. 21, 22, or 29 denotes a failure on the Secondary Radio. See the ASTRO APX Mobile Radios and Control Heads Basic Service Manual (P/N 6875964M01) for all other error codes.

    Secondary Radio (female connector, labeled “Control Unit”). Securely tighten these two screws as well. The quick-disconnect end of the APX Dual-Radio Cable will attach to the O7 Control Head, and is mounted in the operator’s compartment. This end of the cable also contains the connections for the speakers, the emergency foot switch, and the ignition sense.

  • Page 39: Ignition Cable

    All cables should be pushed out of the way as much as possible to prevent damage. 5.2.2.3 Ignition Cable The APX Dual-Radio Cable (HKN6250_) has an ignition sense cable that must be used with every mobile installation. The ignition sense cable allows the radio to be turned on and off with the vehicle ignition switch, and allows the radio to remember the state of the radio on/off switch, even if it is changed while the vehicle is off.

  • Page 40: Dual-radio Accessory Cable

    Refer to Figure 5-5, the APX Dual-Radio Cable (P/N HKN6250_) cable connects the O7 Control Head kit (P/N PMN1035_), to the dual remote radios via the quick-disconnect. NOTE: Follow standard installation practices when routing and connecting all system cables. Use labels to identify both ends of each cable and make sure that all connections are electrically sound.
