Question about Motorola Walkie Talkies 2-Way Radio

3 Answers

Does not receive FM signals anymore, just noise.

I receive the weather channel clearly. But the FM signal is just noise.
I have the 2 walkie talkies for about 6 years. The first one went out about 3 years ago. And the second one went out about 2 months ago.
Just clicked off! The model is the Motorola T6310 and many features such an alarm, clock, presets, stopwatch and more. All work well. It's
been discontinued however and going through customer service, emails,
800 #'s - I just get bounced about by non-technical people. What's new!
Please help! I even tried Radio Shack.

    How can these radios be disposable! At the time they were available they priced at around $80! This is not a programming or a battery problem. I don't use the radios to transmit voice, just for the FM radio that's it. Read, I just get noise from the station. However I do get the weather channel when I tune to it.

I have the model Motorola T6310 and currently no FM stations play. Everything else works fine but it was convenient to have FM reception. FM radio used to work fine 14 or 15 years ago when it was new. This leads me to believe it's a manufacturing defect or done intentionally to stop working after a few years.

The T6310 is a disposable radio. Assuming the programming is correct, and matching on each of your radios, and you are using good batteries, there is nothing which can be done to correct the problem. We would however, suggest you double check your programming, and also the age of your batteries.

Sidenote: Rechargeable batteries only last 18-24 months before they begin to fail. Signs of failure can include, but are not limited to, poor transmit, intermittent transmit, white noise, squelching sounds. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so your transmit would be the first to go.

    My apologies for misunderstanding your question. Since the radio is an FM walkie-talkie also, we had wrongly assumed you speaking of the 2-way-radio function. In regards to the FM-stereo radio function: Have you tried reprogramming the radio to find the FM stations in your area? It may have lost what you had saved to the radio.



    Here is a link to the owners manual. The pages around 22-23 look like they would be helpful to you. It explains how to tune the radio back onto an FM station.



    We were a little hurt by you rating us as "inappropriate", when a simple "thanks for trying" would have been in order. We truely were trying to help you, we just misunderstood your question. Please accept our apologies.

Sounds like the 'squelch' is not high enough. Check the manual how to raise the squelch level. Then the receiver will be silenced until you receive a strong enough signal.

I have the cobra micro talk with rechargeable batteries my workers plug them up every night and get them in the morning but some arestill saying low battery, does the walkie talkie need to be turned off...


they charge better if they are turned off. since they do not have a paid dedicated channel, signals can

still be received by any walkie talkie using the same channel, and can deplete the charging process

to the radio. good luck!

What channel should i set my motorolla walkie talkie to get the best distance? It seem not to wok beyond 1/4 mile on channel 3.


You didn't mention a model number, so I don't know if your radio is an FRS or FRS/GMRS model. GMRS channels have more power output than FRS does, but GMRS also requires a license for operation. Other than that, the frequencies are so close together that there is no distance advantage gained by changing channels. The manufacturer's distance claims on these radios are pure advertising gimmicks - the radios are line-of-sight only, so if there's anything between the transmitter and receiver, the signal will not get through.

I can't get my walkie talkie to go it's full 20 miles its only reaches maybe 3 miles or so it dont make any scence to me. also how can i comunicate with cb's in semi's


The distance claims made by FRS/GMRS radio manufacturers are fairy tales. The frequencies that these radios operate on are line-of-sight only, meaning that ANYTHING between the radios (buildings, hills, trees, etc.) will block the signals. Unless you're transmitting from one hilltop to another, with nothing between the two, 2 to 3 miles is the maximum effective distance for any of these radios.

On your other question, FRS/GMRS radios and CB radios operate on different frequencies bands, so you cannot communicate between the two types of radios. In order to communicate with CB radio operators, you will need a CB radio.

HOW DO YOU GET THE WEATHER CHANNEL ON WALKIE TALKIE?


Your radio must have VHF capability, as weather channels are VHF. Then your radio must be programmable to the weather channel for your desired area. If you repost a question including your Motorola radio name/model, we could be more specific.

My Binatone Marina 300 Walkie talkies give hiss & noise. Pressing menue and up or menu alone makes no difference. How can I have a quiet radio except when called?


Hello andy300,

Does the "RX" indicator show on the LCD screen constantly?

This radio does have a monitor function which disables the squelch control, allowing the user to listen to weak signals on the channel. Enabling this function in absence of any signals will cause the user to hear any background static or noise on the channel. You enable this function by pressing Menu + Up at the same time and disable the function by pressing Menu.

I assume that you are familiar with this function from the fact that you mention these keystrokes have no affect on the radio's behavior.

It is possible that the area you are using the radios in / channel you are using them on has a very high noise level. If the noise level is higher then the radio's automatic squelch threshold, then you would hear constant static, hiss, or white noise and the receive ("RX") indicator would show a constant signal. A local noise level can be caused by atmospheric conditions or very busy nearby adjacent-channel radio signals.

Try operating the radios on a different channel and see if that helps. If it is practical, you might try operating the radios in a different local area just to see if that has any effect at all. This would help you determine if the problem was a local one specific to the area you are operating in.

If it is local area related you might consider switching to a different model of radio that includes a Continuous Coded Squelch System (CTCSS) function (called "privacy codes" or "quiet tones" by come manufacturers. This function does not appear to be included in the model you are using and can help keep your radios silent unless you receive a call from another radio using the exact same privacy code.

If the problem persists regardless of channel or area, then you might have a problem with the radio that would require factory service.

Hope this helps. Best regards!
Ken
