Question about Motorola XV2100 (1 Channel) 2-Way Radio
To Whom it May Concern: I work on the National Ski Patrol (NSP) at my local ski area. We have a radio system which operates on frequency 154.5700 Mhz (VHF) We have several Kenwood TK-260 radios. We recently purchased a new Motorola XTN xv2100. Both radios are operating at 154.5700 Mhz. However, the new Motorola radio when transmitting can only be received by other Motorola Radios (several other types and models but all other Motorola models pick it up). The Kenwoods do not receive the transmissions from the xv2100. However, the transmission from the Kenwood tk-260 is received by the xv2100 just fine. Why can't the Kenwood tk-260 receive the Motorola xv2100 radio transmissions? Thanks for any help you might have in solving this issue! Todd
Hello!! First of all, any radio in the right frequency will work with any other, to work just need the following features: -Frequency, 154.700 which is correct as you said. - the Squelch code, this could be PL or DPL. The XV2100 has a table of codes that you can try, as you dont know this code form the Kenwood, you will need to check one by one. If you have the chance to send the Kenwood to some to "Read" the radio parameters( freq.,Code, ETc) you can look those parameters on the XV. Hope this can help, any comments firstname.lastname@example.org Good Luck

Advertising for various radios differs, and can offer some incredible ranges. The following is a good rule of thumb in the real world:
Handheld radios generally will talk "radio-to-radio", "line-of-sight" up to 2 miles. Once you start putting obstacles in between the radios you will shorten your range.
Mobile radios, such as those mounted in vehicles, will generally talk "radio-to-radio" 8-10 miles depending upon the obstacles and the terrain.
Repeater Towers and/or Trunking: If your radio is programmed to match a local repeater or trunking system, your range will be determined by the footprint of that particular system. See your local dealer for details.
Consider your radio can talk as far as it can "see". If you are on a mountain top, your radio will talk far into the valley, and seem to have incredible range. So conversely, if you in a city with many obstacles, you may have a very short range.
