Check the settings of both your interference code eliminator and your Qt filter (if your model has one). These codes need to match the other radios exactly. If the other radios have a Qt filter and your unit does not, then the Qt filter would need to be shut off on the other units.

rx means its in receive mode, what happens when you push the PTT (push to talk ) ?

Stuck on rx mode

Rx is an abbreviation for receive. (Tx is transmit) There are a variety of reasons a radio will be "stuck" in Rx:
1) Another radio in the group is stuck in transmit and you cannot reply if your radio is receiving the other radios transmission.
2) Your radio is programmed for Rx only.
3) Your radio has a Tx problem such as a bad mic, or something covering the mic opening.
4) Your battery is low or bad. It takes more energy to Tx than to Rx.

Best regards.

I can talk through one device and hear fine on the other, but cant hear anything when i talk into the other device

verify, either the operating frequency is not pair/same with the other radio, check the default frequency, tx/rx on the simplex mode should be the same frequency

How do you get the RX icon to turn off? The unit just has a contant fuzzy buzz.

RX represents "receive" This indication will be present whenever the speaker is producing audio. The "buzz" you're talking about is probably static, and is technically audio from the speaker. To silence the "buzz" adjust the squelch just until the speaker falls silent. The RX indication should be off at this point.

It is important to note that the squelch is designed to keep the speaker silent until a signal is detected. You adjust the squelch based on the level of static at a particular time and at a particular location. The static level may change depending on those variables. If you adjust the squelch well beyond the point that the speaker is silenced, you may not be able to hear transmissions or calls to you unless the caller's transmitter is physically close to you. This is why the squelch should be adjusted only until the static is stopped and the speaker is silenced.

I hope this helps and good luck!

How to remove the letters RX near the battery so u can talk to another person It's a Uniden hand held receiver model-uh043sx-2

Hi Phillip,

The Rx symbol indicates that someone else is using the channel, which, (if your radio is working correctly) means you should be hearing them, if this is the case then there is nothing you can do to change that, because only one person at a time can use the channel at a time, however, as we\'re talking about CB radios, that is not always the case, dependant on the make and model of the radio in use.

In the case of your radio, not much can be done, as that is a factory default setting, so you can\'t override this without getting into the unit and risk stuffing it up period.

If you know someone in the 2-way radio game i.e,. a radio technician, or radio amateur, they could help, otherwise you can\'t do much about this.

If this is a real problem for you, then getting a bigger 5 watt radio could be an answer, as these are normally set by default to allow you to override the Rx when you Tx.

Note: Don\'t buy a Chinese made unit, as these are not reliable, nor stable units for Aussie use, I found this out when I purchased an Oricom CB... Absolute crap, cheap and nasty. Be aware of where radios are made, regardless of brand name.

I hope I have been of assistance.

My UH043SX-2 seems to be stuck on RX, I can talk on it but not hear an answer.

We have 6 of them all with the same problem. Uniden says to turn off holding down the mon and scn buttons. Then hold down the mon and scn buttons together for 20 secs. Then turn on holding down the mon and scn buttons at the same time. Then turn off and turn on again. This should clear the problem. It didn't for me so I threw them away and bought some more. I think that would have been easier than all the other stuff!

One of my walkie talkie has an RX on the display and you can send but you cannot hear the other person. How can I remove the RX as that seems to be the only difference in them. Thank you

depending on what radio you have, they are programmed in different ways, rx means recieve signal

and tx means transmit signal, if you have a mode button, you will have to scroll through it until you

get to the menu that allows you to change the radio transmission. it looks like that radio is only

programmed to receive signals and not transmit. good luck!

Radio transmission


Based on your post/description, you can hear others (RX-receive) OK but "...they cannot hear...very well..." then the problem is with the TX or transmit.

If the problem only is when the others are far from you, then it is possible that you have a defective final or at least a defective antenna/connector/solder joint. If on the other hand, the problem is present whether near or far, then perhaps your problem could be the modulation circuitry (which includes the mic). In some instances, it may be due to the Interference Elimination that you and/or your friends are using. At other times, it may be because of the battery no longer charging completely.

In any event, you would probably need the services of a qualified communications technician since this would involve opening the unit, familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM & a soldering iron or hot air blower.

You have to consider the cost or repair and the downtime. In most instances the cost of repair would just be a little lower compared to buying a new unit.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Poor transmission

Its hard to tell exactly whats wrong without some more detail. I am assuming that these are 15 channel FRS walkie talkies? If they are than what you have is 2 FM 2 way radios that operate in the 450 mhz region. FM is usually really clear at both close and far distances. With AM radios its possible for the transimission to be distorted at close distances. First you want to check if this is a transmit problem (tx) or a recieve problem (rx). The easiest way to do this is to listen to other peoples transmissions and see if you can undertand them and if they are clear. Push the monitor button or whatever function there is on that particular radio to turn the squelch off. What you want is to hear static so you will be able to hear other people talking on other handhelds that are using different tones than you or might be too far to break squelch. You want to hear everything. Check how other people transmissions sound..... if they are hard to understand like a transmission from you other handheld does. If the other radios you pic up sound clearer....try using yours again.... but give it some distance... The speakers in these thing are not the best to begin with. Try that out and let me know your results... try to desribe what your hearing in detail.... like "garbled" "distorted" "low audio" stuff like that so I get an idea of what your hearing. Try it out
