Getting radios on same frequency

Estrella Vista is a brand new school and 3 radios walkies/radios were purchased. As our school has grown, we needed more radios so we got 5 more from another school that closed. The make of those radios are Vertex. How can we get them to work with our Kenwood radios?

You will need to have a radio dealer determine if the radios are compatible, and then if they are compatible, you can have one set programmed to match the others.

One Walkie can hear and talk second Walkie can talk thru but not hear from other.


Most likely, something is programmed wrong. Brand and model would help more. If over the counter radios, the frequencies are likely the same. The "tones" which have many names are incorrect and both frequency and tone must match. One radio may be in "monitor" mode, so it will hear everything on that channel. Grab the book, slowly program each radio writing down each setting. Get the frequency and tone first. Add features later.

What is the condition of the batteries? Try it with new ones and if you still have this issue, you need special equipment to test the output and sensitivity of the transcievers.

I just purchased two Baofeng BF 888s radios and had them programmed to our frequency here. They will both receive and transmit with each other but not transmit to the radios we already had. Any ideas?


Your radios could be programmed with subaudible tones (CTCSS) or digital code squelch (DCS) which the new radios do not have. They can be programmed for it, you need to find out what tone/code you are using.
It could also be that your existing radios are programmed for a "duplex" repeater channel, with different transmit and receive frequencies. The new radios might be on the "repeater output" frequency so they would not activate the repeater.
Both could be the case, missing tone and duplex frequencies.
I would check the programming of the new and old radios, especially for tone/code squelch.

Hello,I have four walkie talkie brand new from Kenwood, UBZ LF 14, and they work in the PMR band. Now I'm living in Italy and the PMR band is not allowed for family use by the Government The family...


Elio:
Your local Kenwood rep is correct for a couple of reasons:

1. The cost to modify your current radios to operate on the Italian band would be higher than the price of new radios.

2. Operating modified radios would be a violation of Italian laws.

I can't get my walkie talkie to go it's full 20 miles its only reaches maybe 3 miles or so it dont make any scence to me. also how can i comunicate with cb's in semi's


The distance claims made by FRS/GMRS radio manufacturers are fairy tales. The frequencies that these radios operate on are line-of-sight only, meaning that ANYTHING between the radios (buildings, hills, trees, etc.) will block the signals. Unless you're transmitting from one hilltop to another, with nothing between the two, 2 to 3 miles is the maximum effective distance for any of these radios.

On your other question, FRS/GMRS radios and CB radios operate on different frequencies bands, so you cannot communicate between the two types of radios. In order to communicate with CB radio operators, you will need a CB radio.

Is Bell South walkie talkie compatiable with other


Some number their channels differently, but all FRS/GMRS radios operate in the same mode and will have at least some frequencies in common. Check the channel/frequency lists for both radios and you'll be able to talk to each other.

Is kenwood walkie talkie and motorola walkie talkie on the same frequence


If you are talking about FRS radios, the answer would be yes. If you are talking about business radios, it depends on how they were programmed. Business radios have many frequencies available.

Pick up other walkie talkies


Should do. The available channels are defined by the regulator rather than by the manufacturer. Only thing to watch out for is similar looking devices designed to be sold into different markets (for instance, radios made to the European PMR446 standard work at a slightly lower frequency than those intended for sale in the US).
