Hi Nick,

Your two way is giving you a roger beep, when you release the PTT, is that correct?

If so, your manual if you have one, and if you can decipher CHINGLISH, will tell you how to stop the ROGER BEEP.

Because these nasty little units are mass produced in China, their English translation of the user manual is harder to work with than the nasty little radios they are printed for.

Unless you have a mate who can translate Chinese to PROPER english for you, then you are in the same boat as the many other silly sausages that bought these crappy things.

They are cheap & nasty radios, like anything else made in China, that's not to say the Chinese people a bad, just the companies that produce this rubbish in great quantities for gullable folks to buy & cry.

Sorry, but I too got sucked in buying Chinese radios, Never again.

I hope you find someone to translate that Chinglish manual for you.

Sincere Best wishes,

Many computer programming applications supplied to ease populating the memory locations of radios with frequencies, tones, offsets, and alpha-numeric tags are very finicky with timings on serial or COM ports. Use of USB --> COM converters generally do not work well. You should connect the radio to a computer that has a real COM port - but failing that you *may* be able to coax the radio to accept the data by turning the speed WAY down. By way down, we're talking 1200 or 2400 BAUD. 19.2K speeds make timing variables to great for the radio to accept without errors.

Try with a slower speed and you may be able to do it - otherwise, an older PC or notebook with a genuine COM port and a 16550 UART should be available for very short money on craiglist or eBay. Then, you'll be able to run 115K transfers.

I hope this helps & good luck!

If it is your sim that is locked, then what you need is your PUK code (Personal Unblocking Key).
It is found inside the sim cards pack. It is the 8 digit code that is on top of the sim card carrier. In some cases it used to be more than 8 digits or lesser.

When you purchased the sim it came in a pack consisting of the user manual, the sim card carrier, then the casing.

On the sim card carrier where you broke out the sim card from, you will see your number, the sim pin, then you will see a 8 digit code that is the puk code.

Enter it and it will prompt you for a new pin, enter the new pin and confirm it, then your phone will be unblocked.

Hope this Helps.
Take care and good luck

If you want the radio to broadcast your call automatically, I don't think I can help you or that the radio can do that.
However, if you want your name or callsign to show up on the screen, I can give you a solution... sort of.
You could program an alternate channel (A/B) that you never use, with your name or what ever.
In channel mode push menu and push up/down arrows or rotate knob until you find menue 26. In that menue you can program one letter at a time and put in whatever you want.
Or you can program a name in that nobody can change or tamper with unless they use computer software by using a chirp cable. Be careful to get a good cable some of the really cheap ones don't work and a few can even break the radio. There is a special box in the computer software where you can type in the welcom message that comes up when you turn the raio on.https://youtu.be/pUv92tJk_8s?t=717 this video shows the screen. Where it says the radio name under "power on message" you just delete the text and type whatever you want.

You are doing something wrong :>)

Tip & How-To about Miscellaneous
Pairing Bluetooth Devices
Posters often ask "How do I pair my Bluetooth ???" Insert whatever device you have at the question marks.

Generally, you need to read the instructions for the camera, headset, speakers or whatever the Bluetooth device is.

Roughly speaking though.

Settings - Bluetooth - Search, on the Android, iPhone, Windows phone whatever.

With camera, speaker, headphones or whatever the Bluetooth device is, you have to press a button on that device to send out the signal. On my Bowers and Wilkins T6 Speakers, there is a button on the top with the Bluetooth symbol on it. This is the part people usually don't do and ask for advice, thinking it will do this automatically.

When the Android device recognises it, click Pair, and if it asks for a code, the Default is '0000', (four zeros, no quotes).
