Question Motorola XTS-1500 Talk permit tone

At Mayfair Mall, we use the Motorola XTS-1500 radios. I was wondering if anyone could answer this. When I key up my radio, it will not give me the talk permit tone. However, if i quick press the button and let go right away, it sounds the triple beep. Anyone know why the radio is doing that? I thought that when you press & hold the ptt button your supposed to get the triple beep.

Hi Zack, are you guys on a trunking system or conventional??? If you guys are on the conventional system, you have to enable that on the CPS called ''SIDETONE'' but again, you have to enable the MDC/Emergency as well. Is this your personal radio?? Also, make sure that your not on Simplex, sometimes radio shops set the radio without sidetone/mdc enabled.

We are actually on the Milwaukee county 800mhz trunked radio systerm. The radio is owned by mayfair mall themselves as it would be illegal for me to program my own trunking radio on the county system.

Your radio is set up to not emit the Talk Permit Tone. The reason it does it when you key up and let go quickly is because the radio thinks you asked for a channel and gave up (which you did for a short amount of time). So the radio is telling you that you have a channel ready for you to talk on.
