SOURCE: Does the Motorola Talkabout T5720 communicate with a other Two-way Radio that is not Motorola or is a different model? And does this Two-way Radio have the scan option? Thanks

yes, it does scan. but motorola 2 ways may have a different freq. than the other 2 way radio you have. search through both radios and find the channels that match.

can they talk to each other?
check the tx and rx frequency.
Check the subtones, are they TPL or DPL?

SOURCE: RPL & TPL tones used in T-5720

The T5720 user manual does not list the TPL codes possible in the radio. However, they are the standard list, with zero being "open squelch" (no code). Here is a link to a Motorola manual which has a list of the PL codes in order on page 43. http://www.thekidshuttle.com/ABC%20Docs/CP100_Manual.pdf

On the T5720, another item to what for is the Qt noise filter. Be certain to set it to zero unless using the T5720 with others of the same model. It can also block transmissions. Here is a link to a user manual for the T5720 http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/starbattery/T56XXusersguide.pdf

I had a pair of t5720's but lost one of them on a trail somewhere in Arkansas. Where can I order a replacement?


You could try eBay, or Motorola's online store http://www.store.motorola.com/mot/en/US/adirect/motorola?cmd=catDisplayStyle&catKey=601700
or you should be able to get a similar unit at your local Walmart. The T5720 has not been produced for a while, but other TalkAbout radios will communicate with your existing radio.

Best regards.

How to get a Talkabout T5720 to communicate with a


The frequency range and operatngmode of the two radios are compatible. To get the Radius operating on a GMRS channel you'll need a Motorola programming cable and software, OR a trip to a Motorola dealer for frequency programming. Considering the cost involved, the 2-watt output of the Radius, and the 1-watt output of the Talkabout, you would be better off performance and cost wise buying a pair of 5-watt GMRS portables.

Set your interference eliminator code on the T5720 and the Qt filter both to zero. You have one or both turned on. By setting them to zero you will turn them off. Then your radios should work together.

No, they have no frequencies in common. The TLKR-T3 uses the PMR446 frequencies common in Europe. The T5720 uses FRS freqeuncies common in the USA.

Motorola Talkabout T5720


Hello kenyond,

The range that you can expect to see when using two-way radios is very dependent on local conditions. These radios are very line-of-sight dependent. Obstructions like mountains, hills, tall buildings, thick vegetation, and using the radio in a shielded environment such as inside of an automobile can block your line of sight and limit your effective communications range.

That “maximum 5 mile” advertised range is probably only practical in a situation where the user of one of the radios has some significant elevation (such as being on top of a tall hill) and therefore has increased line of sight. When communicating over relatively level ground that is clear of obstructions, you can probably expect a reliable communications range of about a mile.

Hox do i get the t5720 to talk to another make of radio? i have son has a set of ucom twintalker4710 ,and i cant find a channel that they both work on. any idears?


Hello oldskolhippy,

The two radios do not appear to be compatible with one another. The Motorola is a Family Radio hybrid manufactured for the USA market and the Twintalker is a PMR446 radio made for consumers in the European Union. The two radios serve roughly the same purpose (short distance, unlicensed communications) but they do not share any channels in common.

I am not sure where you are located, but it is technically a violation of FCC rules to operate the PMR446 radio in the United States. Likewise the FRS radio cannot legally be used within the EU. I'd recommend replacing one of the radios with a more appropriate one.

Best Regards,
Ken

Communication problem with my brend new T5720.


I have seen some problems with new out of box radios, one of them is out of frequency and recieve with noise and works with low range coverage. I can not clarify what you mean with feed back, check if you set in low volume if the radio works fine. That will tell you that the speaker or the Synth circuitry has a problem. Neto.
