Question about Motorola T5710 (22 Channels) 2-Way Radio

2 Answers

Way off on Frequency

Have a pair of these T-5710 HTs and one of them is WAY off frequency and one is right on. Transmit on the correct channel 2 and the bad one receives a nice clean/clear transmission on channel 18 !! The same goes with other channels. I looked up the manual and there is nothing about doing a reset. Any input would be helpful as they are such cute little radios.

Thank You

Thank You, any help is appreciated. I am just wondering if they got mixed up at the factory, 1 American and 1 Export? We checked the bad one with a counter and it's in the ball park, some of the frequencies are actual FRS/GMARS and some are not. Coming from the hamfest I wonder if someone got in the bad one with the golden screwdriver? They were only $2 for the pair with charger, motorola batteries, extra faces and remote mics but I would love to get them channeled together. I don't dare open them or turn anything inside until I hear from someone who knows about them as I would hate to ruin one.

Jack,

There is not a reset on this model. What you are experiencing comes by one of two ways:

1) The radio has a component going bad which affects the MHz you are transmitting on. (If so, you will need to live with it as long as it continues to work in some combination.)

2) If these radios have never talked to one another correctly, you may have one radio which is a "foreign" model. Some of these same radios are made for other countries with different channel configurations.

Unfortunately, with either cause there is nothing you can do to change the situation. If it works with one on 2 and the other on 18, you'll just have to go with it.

Sorry I could not bring better news.

    There is nothing inside this model of radio which is adjustable by a technician or an end-user. The frequencies are held in the microprocessor and cannot be changed. In your original post you indicated they worked if you set one to Ch 2 and the other to Ch 18. If this is true, then I would use those channels. If you are unable to both Tx and Rx using this method, then you need to check your Qt filter and your Interference Eliminator Code, and set both to 0 (zero). This will put you in open squelch mode, and if they are set to the same frequency (MHz) they will then communicate.



    If this doesn't work, at least you are only out the $2.

I need to tune my baofeng gt-3 mk2 to the same frequency as my baofeng bf-888s I can hear the bf-888s with my gt-3 but cannot talk I've tried every website why cant i talk over it????


1. Make sure both radios are transmitting and receiving on the same frequency (no repeater offset).
2. Either turn off CTCSS tone or make sure both radios are set to the same tone on both Tx and Rx.

Hello i have a yaesu ft-2900 it receives just fine but when i transmit it shows error. this radio is brandnew


Hi Gerald,

When you say you used the software to download frequencies, do you mean as in from the internet, or did you have to input frequencies via the software on your PC?

There is a difference, that's the reason I ask.

If, by using the software you manually input the frequencies, then did you input both the output and input frequencies or just output for each channel?

If the latter is true, and you are trying to access another user via a repeater, then that is the error.

Repeaters generally, require both the input frequency = the frequency you transmit on, and the output = the frequency you receive on.

Without both frequency pair, you won't be getting out, and no won can hear you, as you are basically transmitting as a simplex station on a repeater allocatted channel, hence the error message on your display.

The radio you have is used by many amateurs & CB operators, and both group utilise repeaters within their allocated spectrum, excluding 27 meg CB, which is simplex only, but with SSB included.

I hope this answers your query.

Best regards,
Peter

Need a service manual need to modify a MR f55 radio to transmit on 161.600 mhz can you help?


Hello,
You want to be able to transmit to the Coast Station on this frequency I assume. The Coast Guard monitors channel 16 at all times. This would be the primary channel in the United States. Your radio is VHF Marine Radio and has a built in frequency range of 156.050 MHz to 163.275 MHz. There is no need for a modification. This is a duplex frequency. What that means is you will transmit on one frequency and receive on another, while on channel 20. You will not need to transmit on 161.600. Turn your radio to channel 20. When you transmit, you will transmit on 157.000. And when the Port responds to you your radio will automatically receive their signal on 161.600. So if you are trying to figure out how to communicate with the port authorities then for that frequency turn your radio to channel 20 and you will be able to communicate with them.

Regards, Tony

If i want to use a repeater station what channel do both us need to be on eg if i am on 1 does the other person has to be on 31


Your radio needs to be programmed for one channel to duplex. Duplexing is when a channel has a different frequency for transmit than for receive. (Not all radios are capable of doing this.)

A repeater listens on one frequency and then retransmits what it hears on another frequency. See your local radio dealer for more info, and to see if your radio is repeater capable.

Cobra 148 won't stay on frequency, same frequency on all channels


If you have a frequency counter, and a set of TV repair tools,( a set of special screwdrivers) You can tune the transmit on it. I would not do this unless you are skilled in such things.

The easy thing to do is take it to a cb shop. Usually you can find them at truck stops. They usually charge $30 for an alignment.

If you think you can handle it, I can try to talk you through it.

T5420 unable to transmit or receive. Please help!


Here is a link to the user manual: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T5320_T5410_T5420_User_Manual_E.pdf

This unit does not have a reset button. While troubleshooting you might check the batteries. Be certain they are in correctly and the contacts are free of corrosion. You can use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts.

Walk through all the programming instructions in the manual, double checking both the frequency and interference eliminator codes. A quick setting back to zero on the code would alleviate any problem with that section of the radio.

As far as your "paging" this operates on the same frequency and code as the rest of the radio. If the radios are not working correctly in this relm, the paging will not work either.

You need to check your programming of both frequency and interference eliminator. You may not have your radios set to match one another.

Utilizing two microphones


No, when you buy multiple wireless mics you have to select different channels per unit if you want to use them on the same stage.

Lost channels in a galaxy 66v cb radio


as far as the transmit frequency changing while you have the mic keyed this is normal, the transmit frequency is a little different than the receive, as far as the lost channels go you need to check the galaxy website and check to see if thier is any fixes listed. if none is listed then you can send the tech's a e-mail and tell them your problem and they will advise you on what to do.
