Question about Motorola Talkabout T5720 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio
These radios have proven to be very unreliable. I have a set of three and two of them often will not transmit a signal. They blink off then right back on when you ptt. Is this a common issue and does anyone have a solution. If i can't fix the problem and need new radios, do you have a recomendation? I primarily use them for backcountry skiing and snowmobiling so I need reliable long range capabilty. Thanks
It takes more energy to transmit than to receive. It is possible you have an old or defective battery pack, a bad connection to the battery, or your PTT button is not working properly. On this unit, the internal PTT button can begin to be bent further in from repeated use, or pressing too firmly.
As far as a more durable/reliable radio, you might want to look at radios in the business division such as the Motorola CP110, BPR40 or the CP150. These business level radios are built to work a 40+ hour work week, and are much more reliable than the consumer division products, which are intended for occasional usage.
