Hi Laura,

When you see the Rx sign on the screen, it indicates that someone else is transmitting (Tx) on the channel, this is also caused by "BOOF HEADS" who like doing nothing more than dropping carriers by holding down their PTT button during a conversation, something that happens a lot on CB and without a doubt on FRS radios.

There is no problem in your radio, it's Just someone else probably dropping a carrier as per above.

Not much can be done about this problem, No License, No Joy.

The fact you can hear the other person over the screach indicates to me that I am right, and your radio is fine.

I hope this clears up your query.

Warm Regards,
Peter

SOURCE: walkie talkie problem

That would depend on what is wrong with the radio(s) Most GMR radios are through away's. The average bench time for a repair on a single radio is anywhere from $70 - $100 dollars and thats not including parts. Some manufactuers have a flate rate charge to repair thier product. you might try that avenue.

SOURCE: We have an older model Uniden NOAA walkie talkie &

They are most likely GMRS or FRS, should be 14 or 22 ch's.
Makes no difference they all operate on the same frequencies.
Any of them will work providing you pay close attention to the operating miles. some are 3 some are 26. but that is only Line of Sight. many people don't understand that. And same goes if they are for water use (Mairne radios) they all operate on the same freqs.
No need to worry. need any more help contact me at.

SOURCE: hello i have a Uniden GMR-325 (7 Channels) Two Way Radio that....

Hi Zachary
I predict that you have trouble with only one unit.
Try to find some one with either the same units ( on same Frequency of course) or a receiver that also covers same Frequency and transmit on one GMR then the other to esablish which unit is faulty!
The faulty unit should then become apparent, the buzzing could be caused by transmisson of the faulty unit, check all Antenna connections, even change antennas over on testing as prescribed above,
good luck John.

Adjust your SQUELCH control or setting so that the noise disappears. The RX indicator will go out.

We have three Uniden walkie talkies - two of them have a symbol of a walkie talkie above the channel - these two will not talk to each other - but they talk to the one without the symbol - how do I ge


Sounds like the PL tone is set on the two, with different tones. Go to the menu, find the tone screen, and turn off the tone (or set them all to the same tone). That should fix the problem!

Uniden walkie talkie says L every time I push a button


You've set the keylock feature on your walkie talkie. From the Uniden manual...

KEYLOCK

ON/OFF Press and hold the call/lock key until the "L" appears. After 1 second, the LCD will return to the channel display. To exit Keylock on mode, press and hold call/lock again. Note: While in keylock on mode, it will still receive transmissions.

Static noise rx


Check your batteries. Static can be a sign of a bad or low battery. Swap batteries between the units to see if the problem moves to another radio.
Also, check your antenna and antenna connection.
Best regards.

Do the Uniden walkie talkie (UHO36SX) on listening mode (RX) normally give out a loud rushing noise? It would be impossible to have it on in a quiet place waiting for someone to talk.


No, the radios should be silent (squelched) when not receiving a transmission. Appliances (computers, televisions, even refrigerators) can generate enough "hash" to break the squelch and give you that "rushing" noise. Make sure that the radios are at least 4 or 5 feet apart, and try moving them to different locations to clear up the problem.

But thats how a walkie talkie works, it stays in Receive Rx mode UNTIL you press the PTT button,, then it Transmits Tx, and when released it goes back to Rx, receive?

Hang up


Button on side is not for answering calls.
PTT or Push To Talk allows you to use your mobile like a walkie talkie. It is dependant on your network operator running the service.

Quote from Pocket lint:
To use the function you must first create a group or individual in your phone menu and send an SMS invitation to those you wish to join. Once your contacts are set up, your phone shows which members have their handsets switched on with push-to-talk enabled, in the same way that instant messaging works online. By pushing a single button on the handset, you are connected with one person or with your group. There is no need to dial numbers, nor do the recipients need to answer calls. You simply push a button and talk. As with a walkie-talkie, anyone in the group hears you almost instantaneously. The talking is one way with only one person able to speak at a time. Unlike walkie-talkies, which are infuriatingly dependent on distance, push-to-talk has no such limitations.

You should be able to disable PTT in the Nokia menu, which is best if your network doesn't support it. Plus you won't keep cutting off calls.
