Most likely it is stopping at a channel which has RF (radio frequency) activity. The activity doesn't have to be another radio with someone talking. It could simply be something transmitting on the same MHz. The only way to know for sure is to try the radios in a different location (as in moving away from the problem). If you want to avoid this "noise" you can turn on your interference eliminator, and it should block out anyone transmitting on the frequency (unless they set their interference eliminator to the same code as yours.)

If the noise continues when you try the radios in a different location (more than 5-10 miles away), then you will have to investigate a problem with the radios themselves.

Voice recognition on motorola t5500


That means that it will Transmit, like pressing the "Talk" button, BUT ONLY when it hears the "Voice" it was "Trained" on. So this is so No-one else could use this unit. With this method. You "Identify" yourself, and after that every-time you speak, the Transmitter is keyed, and the channel is opened and the voice sent, when you stop talking,it goes back to receive, again. Some are less sophisticated, in that they are really a "Sound Switch" and when the unit "Hears" a "Voice" it, switches OFF receive, and ON the transmitter, and Transmits the audio out.

I have a problem


Hi,

Normally in a Motorola T5700, to set a specific channel to monitor (and reply to) called your working channel, you press the Menu (center) button and the current channel shown in the display will flash. Press either the + or - buttons to change to your desired channel number which should be identical to both radios. Press the PTT button to save.

Likewise, both radios must have identical Interference Eliminator Code. To set code, press Menu till the code display blinks. Press + or - to select code. Press the PTT to save. To disable the code, select 0.

Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
