MOTOTRBO is a Motorola digital radio product marketed primarily to business/industrial users. The format uses Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA). A single 12.5 kHz channel is able to carry two conversations. This makes the format equivalent to digital radios that use Frequency Division Multiple Access (FDMA) to achieve 6.25 kHz channel spacing.

No scanner can monitor this digital format.

Emission designators for MOTOTRBO: 7K60FXE (voice), 7K60FXD (data).

MOTOTRBO is based on the following ETSI standards.

  • ETSI TS 102 361-1 Air interface
  • ETSI TS 102 361-2 Voice and generic services and facilities
  • ETSI TS 102 361-3 Data protocol

The standard includes provisions for trunking - a feature not yet offered by Motorola's MOTOTRBO.
