Question about BellSouth 2290 Walkie Talkie FRS/GMRS Communicator

1 Answer

I cannot get my bellsouth walkie talkie model 2290 to unlock from a channel

I have two BellSouth model 2290 Walkie Talkies and they are both on different channels: One on channel two; the other on channel three. It will not let me change the channels because it is locked, and has a key icon on the screen. Can you help?

The manual says to press and hold the MODE button for 5 seconds turn on or to turn off the LOCK mode. When locked, it prevents you from accidentally changing channels.

SOURCE: I can't find the manual,

The range of the BellSouth 2252 will depend on the frequency and the surrounding environment. If you get the FCC license and operate in the GMRS range, then the radios will have a maximum of a 2 mile range. The surroundings will matter: hills, buildings, etc. will shorten the range.

If you are using the FRS frequencies, your range will be significantly shorter (again depending on the surroundings). I'd guess no more than 1/2 mile line of sight.

I hope this helps.

(who uses another brands of two-way radios and the ones with a 5 mile GMRS range work over 1/2-3/4 of a mile depending on hills. The ones with a shorter range can't communicate with someone at the far end of the property. It's about 3/4 mile from the road to the back fence.)

Is Bell South walkie talkie compatiable with other


Some number their channels differently, but all FRS/GMRS radios operate in the same mode and will have at least some frequencies in common. Check the channel/frequency lists for both radios and you'll be able to talk to each other.

Bellsouth Communicator Model 2276


Hey!

My name is Tony DeMil. I have some other 2276s that work well if you're interested!

Make me an offer. Or, do you have a manual? I also have other models. I came across a bunch in a lost and found sale.
