Question about Chatterbox HJC-FRS Stereo Communicator (2 mi. Range) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

HJC-90 Specs? Hello, I have a Chatterbox HJC-90 that I bought secondhand. I'm trying to determine a few things. 1) I have some walkie-talkies that have the following frequencies. Should they be compatible? 1-7 FRS/GMRS 8-14 FRS 15-22 GMRS 2) All I can get it to pick up is static - any idea why? Even this is itermittent and seems to have to do with exactly how I hold it. Is it an antenna problem or something?

Use a audiovox walkie talkie


What is your question about using the walkie talkie? These are standard FRS low power walkie talkies. You need to set both to the same channel. Turn both on. Push the transmit button and speak into the microphone which is on the face of the radio. You should hear the voice in the other walkie talkie.

Note; all of these FRS talkies have substantially less range than advertised. They should provide reliable service within about 1/4 mile line of sight, no more. In an urban environment with lots of buildings you will get less.

My walkie talkie motorola em1000 have buzzing sound when another walkie is talking. and have buzzing sound when pressing the button.


Just a few thoughts: It is possible you have a bad (blown) speaker on the buzzing radio or the radio has another problem.

A few things you might try include: 1) Cleaning your battery contacts, 2) trade batteries with the known good unit and see if the problem is solved, if so replace the battery, 3) check the mic and speaker holes on both units to be certain they are free of debris and/or stickers covering the holes. 4) if none of these solve the problem, then your radio likely needs retired/replaced.

Best regards.

Not all Motorola FRS radio models use the same designations for a give frequency or tone. You may have trouble talking with models different from your own...

Hello Ty,

Tis a problem you have there, however I would advise you take one of your radios to radioshack or similar store, and the folk there should be able to assist in finding the apropriate chargers for you.

I hope this helps you in your quest.

I bought walkie talkies with 56 km radius and yet we are lucky to reach each other after approx. 1 mile,any idea why we don't get the range


You do not mention the particular model of Motorola, so this answer will be generic in nature. Some Motorola TalkAbout radios have been factory programmed with a few GMRS repeater frequencies. These channels require the use of a repeater tower, which will 'repeat' what you say over a greater distance. It is possible you have this type of radio. Check your user guide, and then set your radio to the appropriate channel for the repeater in your area.

Radio-to-radio without the use of a repeater you can expect up to 2 miles line-of-sight out of most handheld radios. This distance is reduced by obstacles such as buildings, trees, etc. inbetween the radios. It can also be reduced if you do not hold the antenna of the radio perpendicular to the ground.

Best regards.

Can the gmrsx1 talk to the hjc-frs


Yes, the Chatterbox is a GMRS / FRS Radio transmitter. If both radio transmitters are tuned to the same channel/subchannel, they should have no problems interacting.

Channels


All gmrs radios also have frs frequencies in them. The frequencies are staggered.....1 frs....1 gmrs....1 frs....gmrs etc etc.
The only difference between frs and gmrs is power.... you are allowed to use more power on gmrs freq. So thats why they have more range. But the frequencies are right beside each other.

I would be surprised if your friends radio did not have frs channels in it also.
They should be able to communicate... most likly not on every channel but there should be some that the 2 of you share.
