You can find a copy of the user manual at http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T280_User_Manual.pdf
Which has the instructions on how to program the Talkabout TA280 and TA289. From your FCC ID number it appears you have the Talkabout 280SLK.

Have several Motorola Talkabouts mod. T4800, T5920. Can these radios meet the 2013 narrow band requirement?


  • The question is are they tunable to 12.5 kHz from their current state of 25kHz and the answer is yes. The FCC wants to be able to squeeze more out of the band. Most all VHF/UHF Talk Around radios made after 1997 have both capabilities, including the two models you listed. You have to take them to a tech to have them switched over/tuned. If you use these for a business radio make sure to check with the FCC to see if you need to change your business license to a 12.5 kHz business license.

Issues with Motorola TalkAbout T5900 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio. Do they need FCC programing & licensing to operate? Because I can not get the to communicate with each other!


Yes they do.The thing about the talkabout is that they work according to the network area they are connected to and the number of the talkabout they are also connected to.So all you need do now is to take the talkabout to motorola shop so that they can confrigure it for you.

We are an event management company... Please tell me the price of Motorola Talkabout T6500 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio, and how can i buy it. need 10 sets (5 pairs). does it needs any license??


The TalkAbout radios are license-free and operate on FRS/GMRS frequencies intended for family use. It is possible using them in a business situation may be outside of the license-free perimeters. You would need to check further on this through a licensing company or the FCC (www.fcc.gov)

Here's a link to the user guide for the T6500. http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T65xx.pdf

Here's a link to the Motorola TalkAbout Store: http://www.store.motorola.com/2-Way-Radios-Mobile-Devices-Products/b/2265993011?ie=UTF8&title=2%20Way%20Radios The T6500 is not a current model, but the models shown would talk with it, and work similarly.

Here's a link to another vendor we have had success with http://www.wirelesspro.com/ They show the T6500 on their website for sale.

Best regards.

Having problem with old talkabout 2 way radio


I believe what you are describing is the TalkAbout 101. This unit is non-repairable. Schematics and parts were never released for this model. They are somewhat like a disposable lighter. You use them up and replace them when they don't work any more. (Sorry for the bad news.)

Hello trailrunner,

Back when Family Radios first came out a number of manufacturers came out with both standard 14 channel radios and scaled-down single channel radios designed as entry level offerings. My guess is the radio you have is probably a single channel unit based on what you describe. It probably operates on FRS channel 1 (462.5625 MHz).

If you post the model number and FCC ID number (which should be located on a sticker on the back of the radio) I might be able to give you some more information.

Best Regards,
Ken
