Changing Channels on the new Motorola Mobile Radios

To find one of the “typical” channels we use in SAR (e.g. TAC 4, CALCORD, CLEMARS) follow these steps:

  1. Press the small rectangular button multiple times under the word “ZONE” to scroll to ZONE 10 (see the small letters above the channel identifier).
  2. Turn the larger channel knob on the right side of the display to change the channel (e.g. TAC 4).

Easy as that! The communications crew will be laminating a full ZONE LIST and placing it in all the SAR vehicles on the visor on the passenger side for reference for other channels if needed.

IMPORTANT - The orange button on the right, behind the channel knob is the “Officer Down” button.  Do NOT push this button unless it is a life or death emergency.
