Default Motorola P25 Trunking Affiliate Signs

Does anybody know on ways or sounds the radio will make if its trying to affiliate? If you are using the radio to non affiliate scan. Ive programmed my xts to not affiliate and it works great Iíve just been courious on what would be a sign of affiliation since Iíve never had any problems.

The blinking red TX light is a dead giveaway.

That and if a phone is near it or it's near any speakers you'll hear the interference clicking when it tries to affiliate also.

If you need to ask, you should not be using that radio.

If you turn your radio on one day and it appears to be dead.

You donít have to accidentally hit the PTT to affiliate. You can have a trunking personality set up with TG/AG disabled and still affiliate to a system even though the screen indicates itís a RX only personality.
