ALL. This allows the users to either clone all contacts from one radio to another or to clone to all contacts. In the DTR410 cloning also allows all radios to maintain a contact list so that User Name is shown rather than User ID when receiving voice and data calls.
Cloning Mode: Cloning Using the Cloning Cable Cloning Using the Cloning Cable 1. From the Clone menu, scroll to select Duplicate Radio and press under Select. The fol- lowing screen is displayed indicating the target radio must now be connected to the source radio to be cloned using the cloning cable.
Cloning Mode: Adding/Deleting a Contact Adding/Deleting a Contact These menus are used to add or remove a contact from a Private contact or PrivateGroup contact over the air. This feature is used primarily for fleet maintenance. When adding/deleting a contact to a PrivateGroup contact, the radio attempts to contact all radios within that PrivateGroup and notifies any radios that did not receive the update.
If cloning was successful, both the source and targets radios indicated “Programming Successful”. If over-the-cloning to a PrivateGroup fails, the radio displays the failed clone list. The user can attempt cloning again to any members of this list. For more information on DTR products, visit the following website at: <http://www.motorola.com/ DTR/>. November 2008...
