Zone/Channel Assignment using Customer Programming Software (CPS 2.0)

MOTOTRBO CPS 2.0 - Motorola XiR P6620i

Figure 1.1 - Blog.Teknisi 1 (Channel Name)

Zone Set
The Zone set is used for the assignment of a voice announcement file, personality sets, and additional zone related properties.

#Procedure:
1). In the Action Bar, click the Open button to open the source codeplug archive. The user can also read the data from a Radio. Read More: Reading Data from a Radio using Customer Programming Software (CPS 2.0).
2). From the Set Categories, select Zone/Channel AssignmentZoneZone 1.
Figure 1.2 - Zone 1

#The following fields are supported:
Zone Name - This field allows the user to enter a unique alias for the zone.
Voice Announcement File - This field allows the user to associate a voice announcement file to this zone.
Zone Items - To Edit, Add (Add Set, Add Multiple Sets, Add Copies), Delete, and Move Up/ Down the Set Type Assignment.
Figure 1.3 - Right Click (Edit)

(a). General (Zone 1)
Figure 1.4 - General (Zone 1)
Channel Type - This field allows the user to choose the type of personality block (Analog/ Digital).
Channel Name - This displays the name of the channel (default: Channel1-Channel15).
Channel Bandwidth (kHz) - Sets the channel bandwidth for the Transmit and Receive frequencies to either 12.5, 12.5/15, 20, 25/30 or 25.
Scan/Roam List - Associates a Scan/Roam List to this channel (default: None).
Auto Scan - Allows the radio to automatically begin scanning when the user selects the current conventional channel (default: No).
Squelch - Filters incoming signals that are not strong enough to produce a clear transmission, thereby eliminating unwanted noise (Normal/ Tight).
Voice Emphasis - Enhances audio clarity for higher frequencies by applying an audio shaping filter to reduce noise in the radio signal (De & Pre/ De Only/ None/ Pre Only).
ARTS - The Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS) feature is used to inform users when a radio gets out of range from contact with another ARTS-equipped radio (default: Disabled).
Lone Worker - This feature enables Lone Worker on the radio (default: No).
Allow Talkaround - Ensures that the Receive parameters are used in place of the Transmit parameters when transmitting (default: No).
Audio Enhancement - Provides additional audio processing to reduce undesirable audio artifacts and improve audio quality (default: No).
Scrambling Enable - Allows the user to enable or disable the Scrambling feature.
RX Only - Configures the channel to receive only without any transmission capability.

(b). RX/TX (Zone 1)
Figure 1.5 - RX/TX
Frequency (MHz) - Sets a frequency (in MHz) on which the signal is received for the current channel. This is a channel-wide feature. Please look at the Frequency Range (MHz) through Set Categories - Device Information.
Figure 1.6 - Device Information
NOTE: Refer to Figure 1.6 above, the frequency range is between 136.0-174.0 MHz. It means, the user only allows set the frequency as its range. If we set the frequency below 136.0 MHz or above 174.0 MHz, it will automatically reset to its default range, and triggering a Warning Message: Value is out of range.
Figure 1.7 - Warning Message

Squelch Type - Sets the type of decoding needed for the radio to receive/transmit a call on the channel (CSQ/ DPL/ TPL).
DPL Code (Octal) - This is the designated digital code received/transmitted when a Digital Private Line (DPL) coded transmission is received on the channel.
DPL Invert - Causes the radio to invert the Digital Private Line (DPL) code upon receiving/before transmitting the signal. Inverted codes allow for compatibility with the equipment that requires it.
TPL Frequency (Hz) - This is the designated frequency received when a Tone Private Line (TPL) encoded transmission is received/transmitted on this channel.
TPL Code - This is a code representing a specific tone.
Signaling System - Associates any available MDC signaling system and Quick Call II signaling system to be used during reception (None/ MDCSystems/ QuickCallIISystems).
Ref Frequency (MHz) - Selects the Reference Frequency used when receiving/transmitting on the current channel (Alternate/ Default/ Nominal).
Signaling Squelch - Sets the rule determining when the radio unmutes to receive Signaling System data. This is a channel-wide feature.
Unmute Rule - Sets the rule that determines when the radio unmutes its speaker to receive audio or data. This is a channel-wide feature.
Emergency Alarm Indication - Determines if audio and visual indication is given by the radio when an emergency alarm is received.
Emergency Alarm Ack - Determines if the radio is allowed to acknowledge an emergency alarm. This is a channel-wide feature.
Emergency Call Indication - Determines if a visual indication is given by the radio when an emergency call is received. This is a channel-wide feature.
Emergency Call Decode Tone - This field allows the user to enable or disable the Emergency Call Decode Tone.
PL for Data - This feature enables or disables the usage of Private Line (PL) code before signaling data can be received on the channel. This is a channel-wide feature.
DPL Turn-Off Code - When a radio is programmed to transmit a Digital Private Line (DPL) code, it sends the digital code when the Push-to-talk(PTT) is keyed.
VOX - This feature enables the VOX (Voice Operated Transmit) feature on a selected channel. 
TPL Reverse Burst - When the radio is programmed to transmit a Tone Private Line (TPL) code, it sends the tone code when Push-to-Talk (PTT) button is pressed.
Power Level - Sets the radio’s transmission power level for this channel (High/ Low).
TOT (sec) - The Time-Out Timer (TOT) is the duration that the radio can continuously transmit before a transmission is automatically terminated.
TOT Rekey Delay (sec) - Sets the amount of time that the radio waits on a channel after the Time-Out Timer (TOT) expires (which stops the radio transmission) before allowing the user to transmit again.
Admit Criteria - Determines when voice or data is allowed to be transmitted on the channel (Always, Carrier Gone Timer Expired, Channel Free/ Channel Free or TPL/DPL but Past TPL/TDL, Color Code Free, Correct PL, No TPL/TDL or Past TPL/TDL, Past TPL/TDL Lockout, TPL/TDL Not Detected).
RSSI Threshold (dBm) - This field allows the user to set the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) Threshold.
Repeater Access ID - Specifies the Repeater Access ID telegram when the PTT Key-up Mode is set to Smart PTT.
ARTS Interval (sec) - Specifies the ARTS time interval for polling transmission in seconds (secs).
