This problem is typically caused by small component behind the PTT button being cracked or broken. The RDX series radios respond best if the user presses the PTT button in the center versus the top or bottom sections of the button. Once the button becomes hard to press it is best to get the radio repaired. Commonly if the radio remains in use the PTT issue will get worse as the internal PTT component is pressed harder, pushing it further away from the outside button and eventually loosening it from the component board.
Your radio is either stuck in VOX mode, or has a bad PTT button. Sometimes when using an audio device a radio will stick in Tx if the device is plugged in while the radio is turned on. When using any remote mic, earpiece, headset, or audio device be certain the radio is turned off when plugging or unplugging the device.
If no audio device is being used, the next possibility is a sticky or bad PTT button. This can sometimes be just the external button sticking, or it can be the internal button has simply worn out from repeated use.
One final thought, if your radio has programmable VOX, check to see if your programming is correct. VOX features when turned on make the radio Tx when it hears any sound, a voice or ambient noise can cause the radio to transmit.
You can download the manual for a Motorola T6500 here http://www.mediafire.com/?exz5py8jp1izit7 and when you get there click on "Click here to start download from MediaFire.." and the manual will download onto your PC.
As for how to use it you have a round knob on top that turns it on and provided the radio are on the same channel they should work.
The push button on the side is the PTT or Push To Talk.
You will get about two good miles out of them.
There is a place on the side towards the top for a special ear phone / mic to plug into.
Those are the basics of your hand held radios. If you have any other questions or comments you can feel free to leave them here and I will respond. The manual covers it all to.
A couple of thoughts:
1) Check the mic hole and see if it is covered or clogged with debris.
2) Does your PTT button seem hard or the opposite, mushy? You could have an internal PTT issue. The PTT is a common failure part on 2-way radios. Feel around for the 'sweet' spot and see if you can make a simple or partial transmission, or if it will even momentarily open up the receiver on the other unit. If so, your radio is in need of repair. It would likely need a new internal PTT. (At most repair centers where the BPR40 is repaired the flat rate repair currently are around $69 for the BPR40)
3) Has any reprogramming been recently done on the radio? If so, double check the programming to be sure your PL/DPL code is set the same as your other radio.\
4) Check your battery. Trade batteries with the other unit and see if the problem changes. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive.
Your PTT button is possibly at fault. It may be partially depressed, leaving your receiver open. Behind your PTT button there is an internal PTT button on the componet board. It may be stuck or defective.
Cloning Procedure: (The content of radio A is to be duplicated into radio B)
1. Turn off radio A and turn on radio B.
2. Connect the cloning cable (NKN6376A) to the Universal Connector of both radio A and radio B.
3. Place the PL switch on radio A to the carrier squelch position for full cloning, or the PL position for partial cloning. Full cloning will duplicate the content of radio A to radio B, except for the deviation and squelch settings. Partial cloning is recommended due to deviation variations from radio to radio. (Later version MT1000's (B model for 6, 16, and 99 channel portables; A model for 8 channel) have partial cloning.)
4. Simultaneously depress the PTT and Monitor button on radio A and hold.
5. Turn on radio A. The green LED turns off. Release the PTT and the Monitor button on radio A (HT600's and older MT1000's (A model for 16 and 99 channel portables) beep when cloning is complete). Turn radios "off and on" to reset.
6. Cloning is complete once the green LED turns off. Release both the PTT and Monitor button on radio A. Turn radio A off and on to reset.
For MDC front covers (NTN5456, NTN5457, NTN5458, NTN5459, and NTN6009B), make sure that radio B is turned on before it is connected to the cloning cable.
All VHF wideband radios (146-174MHz) are "C" model radios. A "C" model radio can be cloned only to/from another "C" model radio. An attempt to clone a "C" model radio to an "A" or "B" model radio will result in an unsuccessful cloning attempt.
Any unsuccessful cloning attempt (depending on operating condition of the radio) will result in one of the following alerts:
1. in receive (rotary radio) - 1600Hz continuous alert tone
2. in receive (display radios) - 88 displayed on LCD
3. in transmit - 1600Hz beeping alert tone
You do not mention what type of radio you are using. However, it is possible
1) you are plugging in the audio device with the radio turned on. If so, the result will be as you describe. Simply turn off the radio and replug the device with the radio turned off. In most cases this will solve the problem. Or a simple press of the PTT while it is locked in transmit, will return the radio to Push-to-Talk mode.
2) You are using an audio device which is not designed for the radio. OR
3) Your radio is stuck in Transmit.
If all else fails, shut off the VOX capability of the radio.
