Hi, normally plugging in the earplug should cutoff the handset's speaker. If it does not cutoff it may be that the internal cutoff switch inside the radio is defective or slightly mis-aligned. This is a mechanical switch and could be adjusted by any competent technician. This might void your warranty (if still covered). Hope this works for you. Regards

Active headset


Your headset is operating in VOX mode. This sometimes will happen if the headset is plugged into the radio when the radio is still turned on. Try unplugging the headset, turn on the radio, then talk using the PTT on the radio. Shut the radio back off. Then insert your headset plug, being certain it is seated (click) into place. Then turn the radio back on and see if it works without VOX. If you are still having problems, press the PTT on the radio one more time and see if it shuts it off.

What is H and L push to talk?


You do not mention the type of Motorola radio so these comments will be generic in nature:

You need to have your radio turned off when plugging in a headset or audio device. Then press the PTT once after turning on the radio. This should aclimate the headset to the radio. If you were to plug in the headset with the radio turned on, it will appear to be in VOX. But will be stuck with the Transmit side open.

Your H and L PTTs are likely a high power 1-2 watts and a low power one half watt setting. Without the radio model and user guide, we cannot research this further.

Best regards.

How does it work? do you just select a channel for both radios and talk? Panasonic KTR320 2-Way Radio?


Hi Four,

Basically, yes.

Both devices must be on the same channel.

To talk, press the PTT (Push To Talk) button.

Test communication close up first.

If you get no response, double check the channel. I find they are easy switched by mistake on digital models like yours.

Best regards
Mike

Cant hear talking with ear peice but I can hear the beep from the radio and the PTT works on the earpeice but thats it.


Check to be sure the earpiece is recommended for your type of radio. Be certain to have the radio turned off when plugging in the audio device. Then check you have the device plugged in all the way. You should feel a slight click when it is seated properly. Use the in-line-PTT only, not the PTT on the radio if this is the method you are want to consistently use.

How do I set my sx700 radio to work with hands-free headsets? Any assistance would be appreciated.


Hands-Free Use With Accessories (VOX)
You can transmit hands-free with the use of optional accessories. Once
VOX is turned on, the radio detects your voice and transmits when you
speak.
1. Turn the radio off and plug the VOX accessory into the accessory
port.
2. Turn the radio on. VOX shows on the display.
3. Adjust the volume appropriately by rotating the volume knob . Lower the volume
before placing the accessory on your head or in your ear.
4. To turn off, simply remove accessory.
Note: There is a short delay between the time you start talking and
when the radio transmits. There is a short delay before the
transmission is completed.

Owners Manual: http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/SX700_userguide.pdf

You must be using a VOX capable accessory. Generally this is an accessory without an in-line PTT.

Hands free


You do not mention what type of radio you are using. However, it is possible
1) you are plugging in the audio device with the radio turned on. If so, the result will be as you describe. Simply turn off the radio and replug the device with the radio turned off. In most cases this will solve the problem. Or a simple press of the PTT while it is locked in transmit, will return the radio to Push-to-Talk mode.
2) You are using an audio device which is not designed for the radio. OR
3) Your radio is stuck in Transmit.

If all else fails, shut off the VOX capability of the radio.

Simple HOW-TO


If your radios are set identical to one another, you simple need to press the push-to-talk button (PTT) and hold it in while talking. Let go when you are not talking, in order for the other person to be able to press their PTT and talk back to you. The monitor button is only for checking to see if other users are talking on your same frequency, and if so, you are to be polite and not talk over the top of them. (So the rules say.)

They used to talk to one another but now they don't


Here's your help:

Read out one of your radios by holding in the PTT while turning on the radio. It will announce the Frequency. Then press the Monitor Button and it will announce the code. Press the monitor button again, to leave the code set, and then shut off the radio.

On the second radio: Hold in the PTT button while turning on the radio. It will announce the frequency. Use the PTT to get to the number you need to match the first radio. To lock in the setting press the smaller button, known as the Monitor Button.

This will make the radio announce the private line code number. Using the PTT set this to the code number of your first radio, then press the Monitor Button to lock in your code.

Shut the radio off and turn it on again to begin use.
