Check your Interference Eliminator Code.

    I have a similar problem: What does 'check your interference eliminator code' means?

    Your radio would have both a frequency and a code. The CODE is different than the frequency. It is another filter which allows the radio user to only communicate with other radios using the same code. In most Motorola TalkAbout radios this is referred to as Interference Eliminator Code. Other names are PL, private line, quiet call, or tone coded squelch. Basically if you have one radio set to a different Code number than the other unit, your radios will not communicate. If you supply the name/model of your radio, maybe we could post a line to the user guide, where this would be better explained.

Talkabout MH230R does not Receive or Transmit on channel, can just Transmit (only clicks when Recieve) when programmed 2 channels higher (i.e. all radios on 5-3, one is on 7-3)


Strange. Could it be any of the radios are from different countries? The channels are not worldwide. For instance, Canadian radios are on different frequencies than USA radios. They look identical.

Doesn't transmit


Check your battery. Transmitting takes more energy than receiving. Also, check your frequency and code settings. The radio you are using this one with might have a different code setting than yours. http://shop.giantintl.com/Manuals.asp

Motorola TLKR T3 one way not working but Monitor works...


Check your Private Line (aka interference eliminator code, tone code, PL, quiet call). It sounds like you have one radio set with a PL setting and the other one is open squelch (no private line). All settings for frequency and PL code need to be the same between the two radios.

We don't have a manual for the T3, but I am attaching one for the T5, which may be similar. http://www.motorola.com/web/Business/Products/Two-Way%20Radios%20-%20Unlicensed/_Documents/TLKR-T%20series/Static%20Files/T5%20Manual%20EU.pdf

Hi, i have 2 TLKR-T3 and i cant tune it ,so what can i do? and how can i reset it? thanks in advance


Try setting the radio back to a simple mode of operation. Shut off all special features such as the sub-code (interference eliminator code), VOX, room monitor, and call tones. Go to just one basic channel, such as channel one. Then check to see if the radios talk to one another. If not, check your battery packs, as it takes more energy to transmit than to receive. Swap battery packs and see if the problem moves to the other radio. And lastly, get a third radio involved to see if one of your radios is simply defective.

I cannot set QT filltering on..why?


Here are the instructions from the manual:

To transmit to a radio that has QT noise filtering turned on:

1. Select the same channel and Interference Eliminator Code as the other radio.

2. Press 'musical note' button to send a call tone. This allows your voice to pass through the QT

noise filter on the receiving radio.

3. Press the PTT and speak normally.

Note: If you skip step 2, the beginning of your message may not be heard on

the receiving radio.

For a 30-second period, starting after the last transmission, all transmissions
received on the selected channel and code will pass through the QT noise filter.

Also, your QT filtering will NOT work if you are in scan mode.

I can't get the radios to communicate with eachother, they have power and chirp when I press the talk button but nothing is being received.??? They look like the EM1000 model of Motorola radios. The FCC...


These are multi-channel FRS / GMRS radios. In order to receive transmitted signals from the other radio, they both must be set to the same Channel and the same Interference Eliminator Code. One without the other will keep audio from being heard on the receiving radio.

I suspect you need to refresh yourself with the radio's controls and settings. If you have lost the manual, you can get a copy free of charge from Motorola You'll need a free program called Adobe Reader to view it.

Once you have everything - look at the right hand side of page 1 for "Talking and Listening" followed by "Menu Options" to set the radios up correctly. Keep in mind that if VOX is selected, and there is sound near both radios, they both will transmit at the same time - since the radios receive OR transmit at any given time, no audio will be heard from either.

Please rate this reply if helpful & good luck!

Motorola Talkabout FV700 not transmitting nor receiving


To troubleshoot: Unlock your keypad lock, then reprogram your radios to the following settings. (Check function after each change)
1) Shut off the Interference Eliminator (set to zero).
2) Turn off the Qt filter.
3) Vox setting to off.

By shutting off all the "bells and whistles" of the radio, you will take it back to being just simply on a frequency. If your radios do not communicate with one another then, or with your friend's radios, you have radio which is failing to operate.

If the radios do work in this simple mode. One by one add the special features back until you discover the culprit.

Motorola T5420 Transmit Problem


Here are some troubleshooting thoughts:

1. Is your battery indicator showing at least 2-3 bars? (Battery Note: Your rechargeable batteries may fail due to setting without use for a long period of time. They need replaced every 12-14 months usually. A good tip is to charge them once a month to keep the chemical in the battery active.)

2. Check to see your Qt noise filter is shut off. Refer to page 22 of the owners manual. It is possible you have some radios set to Y and others to N. To assure good communications you should set all of them to N.

3. With your radios set to interference code zero, place your radios one at a time in scan mode, while you transmit/talk on one individual radio. See if any of the radios receive. Do this with each radio individually to see if you are transmitting at all. NOTE: This test will determine if you have any ability to transmit. If you do not receive any sound on the 3 radios setting in scan mode, the individual radio you are testing will not transmit.

Keewood Protalk 2 way radio xls receives , but doesn't transmit


Hello jf1111,

It could be a low battery. Does the screen go completely blank when you attempt to transmit? Two way radios draw a lot more power when transmitting then when receiving so a low battery might cause the radio to cut out when you press the Push-to-Talk and then the radios might appear to turn back on when you release the PTT. If this behavior persists even after charging the battery then the battery or charger (or both) might be defective.

If the battery isn't the issue then the radio could be programmed incorrectly. Does the problem occur on all channels or just one? The Kenwood ProTalk requires dealer programming with a software kit to set the frequencies for each channel. A channel that is programmed for an out of bounds frequencies would generate an error when the PTT is pressed. You might need to have the programming checked out by your local Kenwood Two-Way radio shop.

Best Regards,
Ken

FR60 intermittent transmission


Hello snorker,

It could be battery / power issue. Two-way radios draw much more power when transmitting then receiving. If the batteries are weak the radio might work perfectly fine on receive and then cut-out when you depress the Push-To-Talk.

Best Regards,
Ken
