Your radio needs to be programmed to match the radios at work. Currently your channel 3 frequency is the same as work, but your code on channel 3 is not. Here is a step by step explanation:

1) Turn on the WORK radio, watch the upper right corner of the screen. It will flash the frequency number, followed by the code number. Note these numbers.

2) Put your radio in programming mode by turning on the radio while holding down the PTT and MON buttons. Continue to hold these buttons until the 'noise' stops.

3) Press the MENU button once. Now, using the + or - buttons choose the frequency number.

4) Press the MENU button to lock in your frequency. This will take you to your CODE. Press the + or - button to choose your CODE.

5) Press your MENU button to lock in your CODE.

6) At this point you can walk through the rest of programming features or simply shut the radio off and begin using it. Note: You will know when you are at the end of the programmable features because it will chirp a different beep than you have been hearing when you've pressed the MENU button to lock in your new setting.

If you need more assistance, give eradiostore a call.

What motorola radios are compatible with mu21cv, mu22cv and mu24cv


Any Uhf Motorola business radio can be programmed to match. None of the toy radios will ever work. (GMRS/FRS)
Easiest to self program will be the the XTN, also called CP100, and RD (RDU) and even older Spirit and SP10 are possible, but harder. RD's are really hard without the programming cable, available from a dealer.

Can the freq 156,600 be put in this radio if so how do i do it


No, 156.600 MHz is not one of the 27 VHF frequencies available in the CP100 VHF radio. (If by chance you have a typo and you meant to ask about the common frequency of 154.600 MHz, aka green dot, it is available in the CP100 VHF.)

Here is a link to a website with the user guide:
http://www.essnashville.com/CP100-operationsmanual-021407.pdf The frequency chart is on page 34. Programming instructions begin on page 20.

Best regards.

I work where we need two way radios i purchased used ones from ebay and took them to work and set them to the codes that the directions said. both the motorola xtn series and the cp100..older models. they...


On the XTN and CP100 series radios you have 4-6 items which would need to be programmed: Frequency, Code, Scramble, Wideband/Narrowband, Mic Gain, and VOX. You can tell when you've reached the end of programming through the steps because the "chirp" will sound different.

Just a few thoughts which might help you:
1) Check to see these items match identically: frequency, code, scramble and wide/narrowband. (note: the numbering system on frequencies differs between the two models.)
2) If you are using an audio device and/or VOX, be sure you have the radio turned OFF when plugging in the device.
3) Check your mic hole to make certain you do not have debris or something covering the hole.

Educated guess you might have the code set differently between the radios. If these suggestions do not solve the problem, google our company name and give us a call, we can walk you through checking the programming over the phone. Have both a known good CP100 and XTN radio handy.

Best regards.

Will it work with a cb radio


No. CB's operate at the 27 MHz on 22 predetermined frequencies allowed for Citizen Band radios; and your Motorola XV1100 radio is a VHF 150-170 MHz radio with a set amount of built in frequencies to choose from, designed for business use.

No user manual for the RDV2080d


Here is a link to the programming software http://www.radioserviceincorporated.com/files/1935423/uploaded/RDX_Series_CPS_R01-00.zip

And here is a link to the user guide http://www.astracomm.com/media/pdf/RDX_Display.pdf

The RDV2080 VHF with display would be compatible with the XTN series radios which have a model name starting with XV, as in VHF. Typically the RDV2080 ships on the default frequencies found in the XV2600. So if you have not changed your XTN frequencies/PL code they may match out of the box.

On a sidenote: The Motorola CP110 VHF is also compatible. It is an industrial version of the RDX radio. It has a few more channel capability and a replaceable antenna. It looks just like the RDX models, and it is the replacement radio for the CP100 and/or XTN.

All of the above mentioned models are repairable.

Need a cheap radio


Most any programmable VHF FM 2-way radio should be capable of 154.570 (blue dot) frequency. In the Motorola line the least expensive new unit would be one of the following CP100, CP110, or the consumer division product RDX. These typically start at around $169 new. However, used are in an abundant supply on eBay.

How do I Reset my T5000 2 way radio to factory default


The T5000 Talkabout radio default settings are not the same as the CP100 and CLS. The CLS and the CP100 UHF are capable of being programmed to match one another on several frequencies, however, the TalkAbout T5000 is not capable of any of them.

The Talkabout radios, as a general rule, are limited to FRS and GMRS frequencies. The CP100 and CLS are from the business and light consumer divisions. They will do most of the common 56 UHF business frequencies.

If you would like to look at the frequency charts yourself, here are some links.

Here are the frequencies possible on the T5000 http://www.fixya.com/support/p514922-motorola_talkabout_t5000_2_way_radio/manual-362/page-17

What's the channel frequencies for a common 22 channel motorola 2 way vhf radio?


Not sure what you want.....VHF band ius approximatly 130mhz to 175 mhz..... in that VHF band there is a commercial VHF band aprox. 155 mhz to 175...... the amateur radio vhf band is aprox. 135 to 150mhz.

 

With amateur radio, any freq in that range can be used...... with commercial radio the FCC cangive a company any freq. in that range also.

 

If you are looking for FRS/GMRS frequencies they are UHF freqs not VHF.

So I'm not sure exactly what you want......sounds like you might want to program in FRS freqs into an Icom amateur radio. If thats  the case you will need an Icom that will do UHF freqs.
