Question about BellSouth 1080 wp (15 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Poor transmission Ever since I purchased the 2 units the transmission is hard to understand. I purchased these some time ago and I just put them on the shelf and forgot about them. Now that I have a need I tried them again Doesn't work any better than the first time - even with new batteries - no matter which channel I use. Any suggestions? Or would it be more cost effective to trash them and purchase new ones? It seems to cost more to fix things now days that to purchase new. Please advise. Thank you. Milan

Its hard to tell exactly whats wrong without some more detail. I am assuming that these are 15 channel FRS walkie talkies? If they are than what you have is 2 FM 2 way radios that operate in the 450 mhz region. FM is usually really clear at both close and far distances. With AM radios its possible for the transimission to be distorted at close distances. First you want to check if this is a transmit problem (tx) or a recieve problem (rx). The easiest way to do this is to listen to other peoples transmissions and see if you can undertand them and if they are clear. Push the monitor button or whatever function there is on that particular radio to turn the squelch off. What you want is to hear static so you will be able to hear other people talking on other handhelds that are using different tones than you or might be too far to break squelch. You want to hear everything. Check how other people transmissions sound..... if they are hard to understand like a transmission from you other handheld does. If the other radios you pic up sound clearer....try using yours again.... but give it some distance... The speakers in these thing are not the best to begin with. Try that out and let me know your results... try to desribe what your hearing in detail.... like "garbled" "distorted" "low audio" stuff like that so I get an idea of what your hearing. Try it out

These Volvo 850 vehicles from the nineties have a poor reliability record and the automatic transmissions are prone to expensive problems.

I am afraid this vehicle, with over 200000 miles up, is well past its serviceable life and should be replaced soon. At this mileage you will experience many mechanical problems which will be costly to fix.

From what you have described the auto transmission is close to total failure and if you kept the car it would need to be replaced with a rebuilt transmission unit. This is very expensive and given the low market value of the vehicle, I am afraid it would cost more than the car is worth even if the car was in an operating condition.

Your only cost effective solution is to replace the car. Do not purchase a high mileage vehicle as you will be potentially buying a repair bill.

Preferably purchase a quality Japanese built used vehicle in good condition with low mileage and only after you have had a full mechanical check done before you pass any money to the vendor. You need to be satisfied with the overall condition of the car and be aware of any faults before purchase.
Finally, avoid European built used cars as they tend to become unreliable after only about 60000 miles and are typically quite expensive to repair and maintain.

Transmission problem


Sounds like an issue when fluid gets hot, I'd start with a filter/fluid change.

I personally shy away from tranny additives, use only as a last resort to get a vehicle drivable to trade in (on a cash for clunkers program. (((SMILE))). )

Your problem is more common than you think. Especially being a potential battery issue. Can you say a bad case from factory. Go to EBAY and order 2 more batteries. You are lucky they plug in.
