In radio communications, "voice activation" or "VOX" has been used for decades where convenience or the need for hands-free operation rule out push to talk. The idea is simple: monitor the microphone input and transmit only when the user is actually talking.

How do I program a HT1000 to have VOX capability?

We recently purchased the Motorola MS350 radios with headsets. We plugged the headsets in and turned the power on, but are unable to communicate back and forth in handsfree mode. We can switch to PTT and...


The three things which come to mind are:
1) Is the headset the VOX headset intended for the radio model? Sometimes the rings on the plug do not match the internal points of contact if it is not the intended headset. Not all headsets are VOX capable.
2) Is the headset plugged in all the way. (You mentioned plugging in and then turning on. This is good. You must always have the radio turned off when plugging or unplugging an audio device.)
3) Try pressing the PTT on the headset cord one time before switching the dip switch to VOX. (Assuming you have a headset with the small box in the line.)

Lastly, if you continue to have difficulties, contact Motorola at the 800# provided in the user guide. They should be able to assist you.

Best regards.

Check your VOX/ iVOX settings. You will need VOX for using an audio device.

Uniden turn off vox


Hi Jon,
The problem is easy to solve, so here goes:
vox indicates that your unit is set to work via the microphone(if you have one), and is activated when you start to speak, (hence vox=voice activated microphone), if you don't have the microphone that came with the unit, you will need to buy/borrow one and connect it to the unit, before you can turn off vox, so that the unit can work with or without the microphone(vox will no longer show), once you have done this.
I hope this helps.

Cheers,
Peter

Have no info booklet need to get rid of feed back


To select the VOX level:
1) Enter the Menu. Advance through the Menu until
the vox icon appears on the display. The current
level (OFF, 1-3) will be indicated. Level oF (OFF)
disables VOX, while levels - set the
sensitivity of the VOX circuit.
2) Press either the up arrow or down arrow key to the desired VOX
sensitivity level. Use level 1 for increased
sensitivity to voice in normally quiet
environments, and use a higher level to reduce
undesired activation in very noisy environments.
3) Exit the Menu.

How do I set my sx700 radio to work with hands-free headsets? Any assistance would be appreciated.


Hands-Free Use With Accessories (VOX)
You can transmit hands-free with the use of optional accessories. Once
VOX is turned on, the radio detects your voice and transmits when you
speak.
1. Turn the radio off and plug the VOX accessory into the accessory
port.
2. Turn the radio on. VOX shows on the display.
3. Adjust the volume appropriately by rotating the volume knob . Lower the volume
before placing the accessory on your head or in your ear.
4. To turn off, simply remove accessory.
Note: There is a short delay between the time you start talking and
when the radio transmits. There is a short delay before the
transmission is completed.

Owners Manual: http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/SX700_userguide.pdf

You must be using a VOX capable accessory. Generally this is an accessory without an in-line PTT.

Headset problem with Uniden 1558


Determine if this is a VOX problem or a headset problem.

Turn off the VOX. Does the headset work for normal transmit and receive?

Remove the headsets. Do the radios work normally on speaker?

Plug one headset in And test with the (other) radio in speaker mode. Does it work? Now turn on VOX in this mode (yes it will work this way). Does vox work (put you mouth right on the mic)
If so swap headsets and try the other.

If one Hset works but not the other its the headset. If neither works its likely the radio ..but before you decide try the same headset experiment on the other radio. Find out which of the 4 devices the problem follows.

Happy New year

Bell South 2250 one seems to be voice activated and other not voice activated.


To turn off sound activation press the menu button 3 times to enter VOX mode. The VOX icon should be flashing, then press the down button till the number of bars dissappear. Press the menu button to confirm the VOX off mode. You also can adjust the sensitivity of the VOX mode by how many bars are displayed, less bars equal less sensitivity. No bars and voice command is deactivated. Hope this helps.
