    I see by the category you chose you are referencing the T5800 model. I do not believe this model was around in 1998. So it is possible you have a different model. Please confirm, and it will assist us in helping you.

    Are both of your TalkAbout radios the same model? If so, it is possible we could locate an owners manual online to walk you through programming. If the radio has a simple name other than TalkAbout on the exterior of the unit, provide it also.

I believe from your brief description you have the TalkAbout 250, 289 or Plus model. Here is a brief description of programming the frequency (channel):

1 With the radio ON, press the MENU button once. CHAN appears and the current channel (large number) will flash.
2. Use the SCROLL buttons to select a new channel.
3. Press the PTT button to set your new channel selection.

To set the interference eliminator CODE:
1 With the radio ON, press the MENU button twice. Current CODE will appear in the upper corner (small number) and will flash.
2. Use the SCROLL buttons to select a new CODE.
3. Press the PTT button to set your new channel selection.

Your CHAN and CODE must match one another for your radios to communicate.

On motormu2080d, I finally got frequency changed. It still is not receiving or sending. What do I need to do?


This one is new for me, so if you posted elsewhere, bear with me. You changed the frequency, I assume to match another radio. Now you must also change the Tone, called PL, DPL,or CODE, etc. Both frequency and tone must be EXACT. Such as Frequency 2, code 1. which is default channel 1 on UHF radios. Also be certain you are not trying to match to an RMV radio, and RMV and RMU cannot talk to each other.

How do I change and select channels and frequencies w my motorola axv5100 two-way radio? Can it communicate with a motorola talk about?


Hello,
This radio comes with programmed channels and tone codes programmed into it. Should it still be stock the the diagram below is what you will use. The tones programed into are there to prevent someone on the same frequency from interfering with your conversation. It's a way of isolating the frequency. These are adjusted by the A,B,C,D You will know what frequency it is by the channel indicated. As for weather or not it will communicate with a Motorola talk about the answer is no. This radio is a VHF frequency and the talk about is MURS.
Regards, Tony

Channel - Pre-Loaded VHF Frequency (MHz) - Code (Hz)

Will the MU21CV radio's work with the talk about radios?


Short answer, maybe. It depends on whether you have a 14 channel or a 30 channel Talk-About. The Motorola Talk-Abouts operate on the FRS frequencies (14 channel) or FRS & GMRS frequencies (30 channel). The MU21CV does cover a few of the GMRS frequencies. (see bold numbers)

GMRS Frequencies
462.500, 462.575, 462.600, 462.625, 462.650, 462.675, 462.700, 462.725, 467.550, 467.575, 467.600, 467.625, 467.650, 467.675, 467.700 & 467.725

FRS Frequencies
462.5625, 462.5875, 462.6125, 462.6375, 462.6625, 462.6875, 462.7125, 467.5625, 467.5875, 467.6125, 467.6375, 467.6625, 467.6875, 467.7125

Modify a motorola T5500 to work in different frequency


Sorry. The MHz of your radio cannot be changed. And there are no "private" frequencies available for use. However, your radio is equipped with this in mind.

There are 22 frequencies built into the T5500, along with 38 Interference Eliminator Codes. The two combined offer you over 836 choices to avoid other people. And if this is not sufficient, they also have the capability Qt filtering.

Choosing the right frequencies for Uniden GMR1058-2CKB


Hello huko,

I see from your profile that you are in Bulgaria. Assuming that you are using the European PMR446 version of the Uniden radio in question, the channels / frequencies should be;

1 - 446.00625 MHz
2 - 446.01875 MHz
3 - 446.03125 MHz
4 - 446.04375 MHz
5 - 446.05625 MHz
6 - 446.06875 MHz
7 - 446.08125 MHz
8 - 446.09375 MHz
So, to operate on 446.09375 MHz you would chose channel 8.

If your radio has more then 8 channels, then you may have the U.S. version of the radio which operates on a different set of frequencies and does not have a channel that corresponds to 446.09375 MHz.

Best Regards,
Ken
