Re: My motorola GP900 has problems
Check for a bad antenna, wrong antenna, or no antenna. Switch antennas with a known good unit and see if the problem persists. If this does not solve the problem, you most likely have low transmit power, and the radio needs to be serviced.

hello yes you can use these as baby monitors .set one with vox on turn its volume down completly set the channel you require ,secondly the receiver radio set to same channel and that is it though i should state that these radios transmit on pmr band 446 mhz which is widely in use by many people nationwide so they can also listen in to whats been transmitted from your home not very private im afraid !! I would suggest you purchase a wired system hence more privacy and peace of mind hope this helps you
OK.. First thing you need to make sure that the soldier joints at teh base of the antenna are OK. ive programmed quite a few of these and found all but 1 not to be broken. So get in there and take a look. If in doubt touch the joints up with a iron just to be sure. Then tart with a weakish signal ( used a hand held with a dummy load on it in another room with a tv on as sound) and tune core L1 to get maximum clear sound. Then do the same for L2. Then reduce power on hand help thats being your signal source and repeat L1 and L2 Tuning. Some times these radios have teh wrong antenas on them. as in a VHF and not a UHF. but ive yet to come across this my self.
Hope this has been of help..
One last thing. the pins from the prog plug also break off teh main PCB so while ur touching up the antenna stuff do these at the same time.
The MTS2000 shares software with the MCS, software package # RVN4176N includes DOS software RVN4097 for the MT2000. (It may be on the same CD, not sure.) You will need to use a "slower" computer, era 1999-2003 to program, due to speed issues.
Disclaimer: Motorola software is proprietary and only offered by Motorola to authorized dealers and entities.
Unprogrammed channels will have a constant tone. It is possible your radio is unprogrammed. A dead battery tone is only for a moment, and is usually a medium tone then a low tone, sounding somewhat like beeedeeep.
Sorry to let you down, but the cable will only function with the appropriate Motorola software (and possibly a radio interface box (RIB) if the cable type you have requires one.) Software is only available to dealers. If you are needing reprogramming, it is generally available for between $25-$40 US.
Your radios might need reprogramming. This is done by a Motorola dealer using the appropriate cable and software. The software is not available for end-users. Cost generally is $35-$40 US.
From the information you provided, it is unclear if the radios previously worked together; or if the radios are the same model number. These are facts the dealer would be able to inquire about, and it would help them determine if your radios can talk to one another.
