Setting and Transmitting Call Tones
Your radio can transmit different call tones to other radios in your group so you can alert them that you want to talk.
To set a call tone:
1. With the radio on, press MENU 3 times. The current call tone setting flashes and displays.
2. Press + or - to change and hear the call tone.
3. Press MENU or PTT to set the new call tone or turn feature off.

Cobra microtalk Cxt135C one radio seems to be muted, there is no sound coming from it at all -


Check to see if you have "tone squelch" or CTCSS enabled. It will only receive transmissions from stations that are transmitting the tone your radio has selected.

It thinks the channel is "busy" when you hit the button. Set the squelch control until it doesn't hear a signal if there's no intelligible signal present, or set the CTCSS tones to a valid value for your system. The EPH is a very good radio, but generally takes an experienced technician to program it properly.

Reset to Factory Defaults (Pg. 34)

you hear a high tone chirp.

DOES IT HAVE A CALL BUTTON?


It has a PTT (push-to-talk) button. But if you are talking about a button to make a call tone (ringing sound) come out the other radios, the answer is no.

Best regards.

VX210 GIVES 3 TONES WHEN PTT PRESSED. WHAT


Check to ensure you don't have the "WIRES" setting enabled. A common issue with Yaesu radios. You can turn it off with a combination of a "F" key press and the button that has a little symbol that looks like an atom with electrons orbiting it.

What are some of the possible problems with transmitting a call tone?


As far as the functionality of the radio, there would be no problem with transmitting a call tone. Two things to consider would be the hesitation you would need to have before talking, when you press the PTT and await the call tone to happen on the other unit(s). And the sound factor on the other end. Some environments are not conducive to having a radio ring or beep before each message.

Muting the sound


Hi,

The sound produced by a Motorola radio when the mike is keyed refers to the "Transmitting Call Tone" which is another feature other than the "Interference Eliminator" or the "Roger Beep" feature.

On most Motorola GMRS/FRS TalkAbout radios, setting the "Call Tone" to 0 disables the feature. This is done with the radio ON by pressing on the "Menu" button 3 times which will result in the display showing the current Call Tone setting (flashing) and the letters CA; pressing on the <- or +> buttons will change selection (you will also hear the different Tones), select 0 (it may be up to 5 or 10 depending on the version). Press on the "Menu" or "PTT" button to set, save and exit.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
