Here's your help:

Read out one of your radios by holding in the PTT while turning on the radio. It will announce the Frequency. Then press the Monitor Button and it will announce the code. Press the monitor button again, to leave the code set, and then shut off the radio.

On the second radio: Hold in the PTT button while turning on the radio. It will announce the frequency. Use the PTT to get to the number you need to match the first radio. To lock in the setting press the smaller button, known as the Monitor Button.

This will make the radio announce the private line code number. Using the PTT set this to the code number of your first radio, then press the Monitor Button to lock in your code.

Shut the radio off and turn it on again to begin use.

I bought a set of 2 way radios to keep touch with hiking partners. I've never used 2 way radios before and I'm clue,es as to how they function


If you tell us make and model, you may get a better answer. The instructions may have a better answer too.

Basically:
  1. Charge or put in batteries.
  2. Turn both radios on.
  3. Turn the volume up.
  4. Tune both radios to the same channel. Pick a channel that is quiet. Quiet means very little chatter and very little white noise. You can make a channel more quiet by increasing squelch but increasing squelch decreases range.
  5. Both radios are now listening.
  6. When you want to talk, press the talk button and say what you want to say.
  7. Remember you are just talking to anyone listening on that channel, so be nice.

My Motorola mr350 2 way radios are brand new but just stopped communicating. I cannot hear or talk using any of them. Don't know how to fix it


Try reprogramming your radios back to a very basic mode with all the special features turned off (or set to zero), including the interference eliminator code, Qt filter (if any), and call alerts, etc. Make certain your frequency matches on both radios. The radios should communicate easily in this configuration. If not, since they are new radios, contact Motorola using the number your user guide and talk to them about warranty replacement.
Best regards.

I want to know talk range of Talkabout T5720


Handheld radios generally will talk "radio-to-radio", "line-of-sight" up to 2 miles. Once you start putting obstacles in between the radios you will shorten your range.

Advertising literature will sometimes give numbers such as "5 mile range". While this is possible in ideal conditions, it is not common in real-world situations. HEIGHT and PLACEMENT of the antenna determines the range of the radio. Example: Talking from a mountaintop you could talk far into a valley below, much further than the expected 2 miles. However, if you were to be in an congested city, you may only be able to talk a single city block due to obstacles.

To get the best range, use a well charged battery pack, wear your radio high on your body, and always hold the antenna perpendicular to the ground when using the radio.

My problem is i dont know how to work it?!


Here is a link to the user guide http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf

First, we suggest checking to see the radios are on the same frequency, interference eliminator code and the Qt filter is set to off or zero. Once you have determined the radios are set alike, you should be able to use the radios by pressing the push-to-talk button when you want to talk, and releasing it when you want to listen to the other radio(s) talking back to you.

The working frequency range for talkabout T6210


Handheld radios generally will talk "radio-to-radio", "line-of-sight" up to 2 miles. Once you start putting obstacles in between the radios you will shorten your range. Even the body fluid of the person wearing the radio on their hip will absorb some of the range. Talking from inside of a building to outside you might expect 1/4 to 1/2 mile. Good rule of thumb: Height and placementof your antenna determines range. The higher the antenna, the further you can talk. If you are talking from on a mountain top to a valley below you can talk as far as you can see.

Increasing Range: Hold your radio perpendicular to the ground, not slanted like you would hold a phone. This problem alone could decrease your range 2/3s. Don't shout CB-style, shouting reduces talk-range. Lastly, use good batteries. This will ensure your transmit capability.

To change channel & code press talk and monitor while turning radio on. Radio will speak current channel. Release both talk and monitor. Press talk to change to next channel or press monitor to keep current channel. Press monitor when desired channel is selected, radio will speak current code. Press talk to change to next code or press monitor to keep current code. Press talk to change code as desired then press monitor when done. Will speak channel and code selected. Set all units in same manner to communicate.
