GMRS/FRS static, call button not working, which channel?

We want to use our 2 Bell South walkie talkies on a cruise we are taking. 1. One if the walkie talkie gives off constant static. 2. When using the call button, the other does not show which channel. 3. How does one know which channel the other is using? 3. Tell me how to successfully use this to communicate on a large cruise ship. I have read the directions. They are not working according to the directions.

What does Mon mean on a walkie talkie?


"Mon" is short for "Monitor" and is usually a feature that allows you to momentarily break the squelch (signal filter) and hear anything being transmitted on that frequency. That includes static if there's no transmissions. It allows you to listen for a weak signal that can't break the squelch threshold you have set. Some radios allow you to lock it open by pressing and holding the MON button for a few seconds. Turn the feature off my doing the same thing.

I got a Cobra cxt275 for Christmas and i can't get the maximum range i can't get 4 miles with it is there a way to change it that i can get 20 miles like it says in the owners manual


Yes you can. If youre using it on certain channels (using the FRS frequencies) you will only get about 4 miles. FRS stands for "Family Radio Service". If you use the GMRS frequencies it will broadcast at higher watts (verses lower watts on FRS). GMRS stands for "General Mobile Radio Service" which you need a license to broadcast over. frequencies for both can be found here: http://gmrsfrequencies.com/gmrs-frequencies-chart.html

However to go on the channels that use GMRS you need a FCC call sign or ID license. you must call out your ID number every 15 minutes to be allowed to broadcast any sort of transmission or you can be fined or jailed (so they say). People sometimes dont obey those rules and the FCC will sometimes geo locate your transmissions and pin point your exact location. A 1st offense can be light to severe depending on what you're doing (pirating radio, blabbing, misusing the channels, using it without a license, using too many call tones, abuse, etc.)
Im guessing you might not understand this in the first place. when you buy radio walkie talkies, they all say inside the manual that you need a FCC license to operate it on GMRS mode, IF its GMRS compatible which today most walkie talkies are. a set of channels is designated for GMRS use and regular use of a walkie talkie has a set of channels it uses for your goofing around or just experimenting.
hope this helps.

What channel should i set my motorolla walkie talkie to get the best distance? It seem not to wok beyond 1/4 mile on channel 3.


You didn't mention a model number, so I don't know if your radio is an FRS or FRS/GMRS model. GMRS channels have more power output than FRS does, but GMRS also requires a license for operation. Other than that, the frequencies are so close together that there is no distance advantage gained by changing channels. The manufacturer's distance claims on these radios are pure advertising gimmicks - the radios are line-of-sight only, so if there's anything between the transmitter and receiver, the signal will not get through.

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.
