Motorola Talkabout T5700 and Audiovox GMRS 1582CH don't talk

I have two Motorola Talkabout T5700's and two Audiovox GMRS 1582CH's.
If I transmit from the T5700 it is received on the 1582, but if I transmit on the 1582 it is not received on the T5700.
Both claim to be GMRS. Is it that I am on the wrong channel range? Or is there some items in the menu's that I can fix to get them to communicate?

    Thanks for replying. But as far as setting the codes, I have all radios on channel 7 and privacy code 2, and yet they have a hit or miss likelihood of transmitting or receiving to the radios of different makes.
    Nothing in the menus seems to offer a solution to the compatibility issue.

Hi,

Most radios of this series would have Interference Eliminator Codes. The codes eliminate other incoming transmission not with the same code (number). There could be similar radios working on the same channel/frequency, but if they do not have the same code then neither one would hear each other. This does not make a channel "private", rather it limits what one can hear on that channel to another radio with an identical setting of the code. In some Motorola models, pressing the Menu button until the small numbers/code flashes would enable them to be changed. To change, press the + or - keys. Pressing the MON key or setting the code to Zero would enable the radio to receive and sound off all incoming signals with or without the code.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do you transmit from a cb radio to a talkabout fr60 and vice versa


CB radios and TalkAbout FR60 radios will not communicate together. CBs are 26-27.5 MHz and TalkAbout radios operate on FRS and GMRS frequencies between 462-467 MHz.

Best regards.

The battery may be dead. If it was indicating it was charging for 48 hours and still did not work, you can be pretty sure it will not charge again.

How do I find a replacement back panel for my Motorola 5700 talk about. Need 2.


Parts for the small size TalkAbout line of radios were never offered to dealers, other than batteries, chargers and accessories. Your best option is to purchase a used radio from ebay to scalp for parts, or possibly by contacting a vendor such as www.wirelesspro.com, who deals in lots of the smaller TalkAbout radios. They may have some which have been scrapped for parts.

The larger TalkAbout line of radios, such as the TalkAbout Distance and Distance DPS are repairable radios, and many parts for them are still available.

Best regards.

I lost one of the hand sets - is it pssible to


The TalkAbout line of radios operate on the same 14 FRS/GMRS frequencies. If you purchase another model TalkAbout they can talk with one another. Here is a link to the Motorola TalkAbout Store http://www.store.motorola.com/mot/en/US/adirect/motorola?cmd=catDisplayStyle&catKey=601700

Repeater channels


Are you certain you are near a GMRS repeater in your area? If you have your radios set for the GMRS repeater channels the radios will not talk to one another unless you are in close proximity of a GMRS repeater. To talk radio-to-radio you would need to set your radio to one of the simplex frequencies available in the radio.

If you know you are close to a GMRS repeater, you might double check the Tx and Rx frequencies of the repeater to be certain they match the settings in your radio. Also, you will need to be certain your interference code is set to zero (the off position) to be used with the repeater. I didn't read up on the T7200, but if it has a Qt filter, set it to zero also.

Motorola Talkabout T5700 and Audiovox GMRS 1582CH headphones


Hi,

Unfortunately yes. More often than not the pin/wiring arrangements are different, if not the physical sizes and dimensions, not to mention electrical characteristics such as impedance, common ground, ptt and VOX feature. If it is just an earpiece or headphones that is required, then any such accessory would do and it would be a matter of replacing the plug and/or rewiring the connection points.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
