Question about Radio Communications
If you are referring to FRS or GMRS type radios, 2 miles is just about the maximum distance you will get out of them on normal terrain. Many of these types of radios will advertise claims of 10-15 or more miles of coverage. This type of "theoretical" mileage rarely if ever occurs in typical conditions. Many factors such as trees, buildings, hills and other "line of sight" obstructions will greatly reduce the effective range.

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.

Sounds like the radio was subjected to electrostatic discharge. If you have your manual, and it describes a way to do a "master reset" on the radio, follow the instructions. This usually involves pushing down on one key while turning the radio on. Otherwise you have to find a licensed dealer for factory service, as there is no way to repair the radio yourself. The use of surface mount technology still confuses many Techs unless they have been to a company's two or three week seminars.

I couldn't locate your specific model, but all of the Microtalk series radios seem to be basically the same as far as operations. Follow the link below to a manual that you can download/print -- it should work fine with your radios:
