Question about Motorola Walkie Talkie 2-Way Radio

Motorola Talkabout Basic

Hey! I Think I have the same radios as you (Motorola Talkabout Basic). I figured out how to change the sub-channels: Press & Hold the monitor button, then wait for It to give you the frequency. Without releasing the monitor button, press the Push To Talk Button. It'll change the sub-channels. Now I have another problem: Everytime I press the Push To Talk Button, It'll change the channels. Anybody has a solution for this problem? Thanks!!! H2O.

I believe you do not need to hold the monitor button when changing channels
Push the talk button till you have the channel you want then push monitor button to accept
Hope this works

Have Talkabout 250 and want to turn off the beeping. any ideas


The following instructions are for the T289, which is very similar to the T250. It is possible they will work to turn off your beeps.


Alert Tones

The Alert Tones (beeps) on the Talkabout radios are set at a fixed volume

level and cannot be lowered. However, Alert Tones can be disabled. When

Alert Tones are disabled, the radio will receive messages at the volume

setting you've selected, but you will not hear beeps when you press control

buttons.

Disabling Alert Tones:

1. Hold down the Monitor button while you turn radio on.

2. To re-activate Alert Tones, turn the radio off, then on again while holding
the Monitor button down.

One radio will receive messages but will not send a message


It is possible you have your PL code set differently between the two radios.

Instructions: Hold the PTT in while turning the radio on, listen for the code to be announced, use the PTT if needed to change the setting, then press the monitor button to lock in the setting. It will then announce whether it is 12.5 or 25k channel spacing. Use the PTT to change the setting if needed. Then press the monitor again to lock it in.

Sub-Channels


Here is a link to a list of older TalkAbout user manuals. Use the pulldown menu to look at various models. In general, most of them program similarly by using the menu button to select the feature and the PTT button to lock in the change. http://www.giantintl.com/motorolafrsold.htm

What will i do to connect Motorola T5720 and T5728


Set both the frequency and the interference eliminator code to match one another. (The big number and the small number) Here is a link to the owners manual: http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T56XX_57XX_User%20_Manual_E.pdf

Basic instructions:
Press the Menu Button
The freq number will flash
Use the + or - button to select the frequency.
Press the PTT button to save the channel setting.

To set the code:
Press the menu button until the code starts to flash (the small number)
Press the + or - to select the code.
Press the PTT to save the code setting.

Once you have both radios matching on frequency and code, they should communicate together.

Motorola Talkabout


Hello trailrunner,

Back when Family Radios first came out a number of manufacturers came out with both standard 14 channel radios and scaled-down single channel radios designed as entry level offerings. My guess is the radio you have is probably a single channel unit based on what you describe. It probably operates on FRS channel 1 (462.5625 MHz).

If you post the model number and FCC ID number (which should be located on a sticker on the back of the radio) I might be able to give you some more information.

Best Regards,
Ken
