Triggering a Broadcast Message

Standard Simple Voice
Hold the  PTT (Push-to-Talk), record message, then release. The message is sent via the audio out, while triggering the DRY CONTACT CLOSURE 1.
 
 
 Touch-Tone   
 Hold the PTT (Push-to-Talk), along with the OPTION Key, or enter the designated touch tone code using the keypad.  Create the message and release the OPTION key to send the message via audio out.
 Communication radio requires an Option Key or Keypad for this activation type.
 
 
 “3 Clicks”   
 Press and release PTT three times, on the fourth press, hold. Continue holding while recording the message, then release to send message via audio out.
 
 
 Push-to-Talk Touch Tone ANI*   
 Hold PTT to send tones to the WT-PA Announcer, record message and release to send message via audio out.
 Requires that the portable device can be programmed with a DTMF-ANI Touch Tone String. The WT-PA announcer is programmed to decode the coded string to activate the Recorder.   
 
 
 * Notes:   
 This Activation is used when Radio System is using a Radio Repeater to cover a large area. During normal radio communications the WT-PA announcer would be in standby. By using a Walkie-Talkie with Option Key or Keypad Programmed the WT-PA Announcer would be activated when the Programmed Option key is pressed.
 
 
 This is also used if a PA Sound System requires POTS (Plain Old Telephone System) Activation. The WT-PA Announcer can be programmed for the POTS Code along with the Touch Tone DTMF ANI String.
