The buttons you are referring to are programmable buttons, and it would depend on how they are programmed. In most cases depressing the buttons will not change the radio in such a way you could not communicate. When changes are made, they are changed back to normal by shutting the radio off and turning it back on. See page four of the owners manual.

You might want to read the section on the light on the radio on page 3. It may help.

Here is a copy of the owners manual: http://www.motorola.com/governmentandenterprise/contentdir/en_GB/Files/ProductInformation/6864110B13A_GP340_BUG_Multilingual.pdf

Other questions which come to mind: Have you changed antennas recently? Have you tried the radios together on all channels? Have you tried the radios in a different area? Have the radios been reprogrammed recently? Do you use a repeater? If so, the repeater may be not working or malfunctioning, or you are out of range, check with your service provider.

I have a Digitech DC-1065 5watt 80 chanel radio. I can send but I'm not able to receive and have lost the manual.....what have I done need help to correct it


If you press the monitor (may be marked SQ) button while someone else is transmitiing and you hear them it probably means RX CTCSS is on. Use the menu button and then go up and down to find the RX CTCSS (TONE) and turn it off for rx.(recieve).

How to change the squelch on mtx8000


You can always have a radio receive. To transmit require an FCC License, and you need authorization to "Talk" to Public Safety. There are large fines and possible jail time to talk on channels you are not authorized for, especially Public Safety. Sadly, your radio is programmed to monitor only when the button is held down. The frequencies in your area working are a lucky coincidence. Take it to an Authorized Motorola Dealer and pay to have it reprogrammed. Radio is not field programmable. Hold onto your wallet, they are expensive to have programmed. You should have bought a high end digital scanner.

Hi,

These radios don't use repeaters as far as I'm aware, but they put out a hefty 25 watts of RF power, but like all radios, this is based on LINE OF SIGHT, in other words as long as you don't have obstructions, buildings, hills, trees and the like between you and the recieving station, all should work well, on the other hand, if there is terrain and/or other obsticles, then this greatly impacts on the radio signal being transmitted.

Best solution is to get to a high vantage point, i.e,. on top of a tall building or hill and Tx away.

I hope this has been of help to you.

Regards,
Peter

I have a midland lxt326 im its supposed to work for 20 miles


The number of miles stated on the package pertain to the approximate distance you can contact somebody IF you were in an open field.

Keep in mind these radio signals travel by air, and if we have trees, houses, and tall buildings around us, the signals will meet interference and bounce around before reaching their destination.

In an urban area, the most you'll get is about 1 mile. I have the exact same radios as you, the LXT 326 model with black and blue on it, and I can use it to talk to family with a radius of about three blocks in every direction from my house. After that, the messages have a lot of static and are no longer understandable.

One radio not recieving


You need to check your interference eliminator code. It sounds like they are not set to the same code. Also, if your radio has a Qt filter, set it to zero.
