Question about Radio Communications
Just want to know how far of range the other person can hear me from?
Line-of-sight you can talk as far as the radio can 'see'. In the real world, with obstacles and curvature of the Earth, this will vary according to your location. General rule of thumb, outdoors with few obstacles, you can talk line-of-sight up to 2 miles. Talking in and out of a building might reduce your range to 1/4-1/2 mile. There will be circumstances when you could achieve great range such as talking from a mountaintop into a valley, you could potentially talk 25 miles.
Height and placement of the antenna determines range. Holding the antenna perpendicular to the ground will give you the most range. Tilting the radio can reduce your range by as much as 2/3s.

Here's a solution finally!! Turn on the radio and press the + button, then while holding it down turn off the radio and then turn it back on after a second, then release the + button. A little icon that looks similar to o))) will no longer be there, which means that the roger feature has been disabled. To re-enable it, turn off the radio, THEN press +, then turn the radio on. Hopefully this helps. It works for other motorola models too, I got this from the manual for the T5500.

You will find the manual here. The radio is part of the 280 series radios, so there is a general manual on all in that series.

1. Short press MENU until the "Z" appears. The current setting

3. Press the PTT to confirm or MENU to continue set up.

This one should be a very close match. The T4508 is a foreign version of the T4500.

Unfortunately the T5728 is not compatible with the US FRS (family radio service) frequencies. The T5728 operates between 409-410MHz. The FRS radios operate between 460-470 MHz. FRS frequencies are license-free frequencies for use in the US, as regulated by the FCC. Other countries have differing rules and thus their frequencies assigned to family usage differ.
