Hi treva,

These little radios are are real problem when it comes to batteries.

Not only do they eat batteries, but due to requires numerous recharging, you soon burn the poor batteries out.

Motorola is a great brand, unfortunately these little radios are made in great mass under license in good old China for a cheap price, and in there lies the problem....

You only get what you pay for...

Cheap & nasty.

I have answered numerous queries regarding this very problem with these battery munchers.

Sorry that I can't give you a real solution, but if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

Best advice is to buy a good 5 watt CB radio on ebay with charger, they're reasonably priced and if something goes amiss, there are definate fixes for them.

Sorry I could not give any other solution.

Cheers,
Peter

Are you sure the batteries are ok?, try to change the batery, check the radio battery contacts, verify if when you press the ptt, appear an icon on the display that correspond to TX function. Try to use an audio accesory to TX, if all this fail, you should replace it. Good luck

Here is a link to the user guide http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T65xx.pdf This radio does the basic FRS and some GMRS UHF frequencies. If your other radio is capable of these types of frequencies, you should be able to match the two.

Best regards.

We are an event management company... Please tell me the price of Motorola Talkabout T6500 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio, and how can i buy it. need 10 sets (5 pairs). does it needs any license??


The TalkAbout radios are license-free and operate on FRS/GMRS frequencies intended for family use. It is possible using them in a business situation may be outside of the license-free perimeters. You would need to check further on this through a licensing company or the FCC (www.fcc.gov)

Here's a link to the user guide for the T6500. http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T65xx.pdf

Here's a link to the Motorola TalkAbout Store: http://www.store.motorola.com/2-Way-Radios-Mobile-Devices-Products/b/2265993011?ie=UTF8&title=2%20Way%20Radios The T6500 is not a current model, but the models shown would talk with it, and work similarly.

Here's a link to another vendor we have had success with http://www.wirelesspro.com/ They show the T6500 on their website for sale.
