Wireless routers operate on 2.4GHz frequency. It's very possible that your intercom is in the same frequency range causing inerference. Try and find the frequency your intercoms operate on. If you can't find it on the unit, search the internet for the name brand and maybe you will find the info. If this is that case, (as I suspect it is), the only alternative I can suggest is to change your intercoms. Be sure to check the frequency of the new intercoms before purchasing. Anything but 2.4GHZ should work fine.

Motorola Talkabout t5000 sold at Costco (several years ago) with a mini T4500. An insert was included so the mini could talk to the others. It says to hold the menu button down and then select 0 for the...


Your frequency and your code are two separate settings. When you walk your way through the menu the frequency choice will come before the code choices. Frequencies will count from 1-14 or 1-22. Codes (aka interference eliminator) will have may more choices and one of them will be Zero. It appears from looking at the T4500 manual that it does not offer "code". So on this one the code is already "zero" (off). On your T5000 you should be able to navigate to the CODE using the menu button, then use your plus or minus button to get you to "zero", then press the PTT button to save your choice.
Best regards.

Our first thought when reading your dilemma is to check the Menu Lock. Holding the Menu button in for 3 seconds will lock/unlock your buttons. You should have an icon depicting a lock displayed on the screen.

Mag One Radio - Static


If your BPR40 radios are all about the same age, it could be a sign of your batteries getting old and needing replaced. A bad or weak battery will cause the radio to exhibit static, and then eventually poor or no transmit. Check your battery date code first, it is a 3 digit number on the battery label, followed by a space and then usually a number 1. On the 3-digit code, the first number is the year, the next two the week of the year. 229 would be 2012 the 29th week. Replacement batteries should be available for around $35.

If you feel the battery is not the issue, you may have ONE radio which is causing the problem. Try using all your radios and testing by shutting off just one radio at a time. You may identify the culprit. Motorola offers a one year warranty on the BPR40, after the warranty is done, flat rate repair is typically available for $69.

Third possible cause is some type of interference in your area. If this is the case, your radios may need a PL code programmed into them, if you don't already have one. This will filter out unwanted noise or transmissions. Sidenote: If you've added any new computers or electronic office equipment recently, it may also interfere. Some foreign produced computers will lack the filters required in the USA to prevent interference with communications. Coiling excess cables can be helpful in stopping RF noise.

The second of static at the end of your transmission is called "white tail" and is common in all modern radios. There is a programming feature to eliminate most of the white tail noise, it is called reverse burst. Your radio dealer can reprogram your radios and add this to your radios, or future radios you buy. The trade-off with reverse burst is that you will loose the last of your spoken words if you do not hold your PTT an extra moment, as reverse burst actually transmits back or cuts off the end of a transmission to eliminate the noise. White tail is worse when mixing old model and new model radios together.

Best regards.

We just purchased these radios for our Dental office and they seem to have alot of interference, they have alot of static, We have them on channel 1, Frequency 8, I believe, seems to be kinda complicated...


We agree, it does take some patience to program this model of radio. However, it is do-able. You need to program both the Frequency and the Code. If you set your code (the smaller number), it should eliminate interference from other users. If not, switch to a different set of numbers until you find a clear frequency in your area. Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T5XXX_User_Manual_E.pdf

On the issue of static. Static is usally caused by using a bad, defective or poorly charged battery. This model of radio has not been offered for several years. It is likely you have batteries which need replaced. Your local Motorola dealer should be able to get the batteries for you. Or purchase from an online Motorola vendor.

Best regards.

ICOM IC-A6 Feedback type interference


The problem is caused by the microphone preamp in the headset demodulating the AM transmission. Sordin MSA headsets also have the same problem. What you require is a headset with no electronics in it and a dynamic microphone.

You need to check your programming of both frequency and interference eliminator. You may not have your radios set to match one another.
