Question about BellSouth 2231TE (22 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Neither Radio Transmits or Recieves

I'm about to move and wanted to use the rados for the long trip because of bad cell phone reception on the highway, however neither radio will transmit or recieve anything. The radios still make noise when the buttons are pressed but I'm having no luck getting them to transmit out or recieve. I'll press the PTT but the other radio won't recieve. It's the same with the other radio too. Also - on one radio there is a little red light that comes on (I'm assuming to let me know the microphone is active) but it only applies to one radio and not the other. Are these radios worthless? Or am I overlooking something entirely obvious?

Have you checked that both radios are in the same Channel and the same Squelch Code? are the batteries ok? any rust in the battery contacts? Some FRS radios gets a Malfuntion, and the syntom is like that, check this first

Radio transmits and recieves but is like squelch is turned way up and needle doesnt move at all


Check your antenna. Make sure it is getting a proper ground. If mag mount; make sure base of antenna and where you put it are both super clean. Check where whip goes into coil or base. Make sure all allen screws are tight and whip is not either all the way down to the base or up to the top. If antenna is mounted; make sure that it has a good ground. You might have to remove some paint around the base to get a good connection. DO NOT TRANSMIT WITH A HIGH SWR. YOU CAN BURN OUT THE EXPENSIVE POWER OUTPUT TRANSISTOR. Hope it helps.

SSB radio


If you are using the radio on a boat, then no, the grounding does not matter that much. However, an SSB transceiver would be hassle to install on a boat because of the amount of power they use to transmit. If the transmission is bad, try using the radio's internal tuner instead of the separate tuner. This may help improve the quality of transmit, however, some radios have a tough time clarifying incoming and outgoing signals and create a garbled sound when it receives a signal or when it transmits. If that doesn't work, then you can try grounding. But if you want a radio that doesn't require all this nonsense tning, you might want to think about investing in a Yaesu. They are pricey, but are one of the best HAM radios.

Go to a radio shark or to a phone store and tell them u want the Reception Booster that goes inside ur battery pack and this should improve ur Signal. :)

No sound


It must be a bad internal speaker, but also check the external speaker jack for broken solder. Good Luck
