First, it's illegal to use that radio in the FRS bands. Also many of the Baofeng radios have very "dirty" output (spurs, frequency drift, bad modulation, etc). Your best bet is probably to buy another radio. With these radios about 3 of 10 I've tested have been bad.

SOURCE: Columbia FRS-S14 two way radios

Are you just looking for a way to program them to the same freqs? But if they are FRS family radio then they should have the same channels in them.

SOURCE: can transmit to other frs radios but cannot

Check the "code" (interference eliminator code) on the FR60 and set it to off or zero. It appears from your description the Cobras do not have "code" turned on. Refer to your user guide to find the instructions for turning off the code. (As of this date we have not found an FR60 manual posted online.)

Best regards.

SOURCE: I just purchased two Baofeng BF 888s radios and had them programmed to our frequency here. They will both receive and transmit with each other but not transmit to the radios we already had. Any ideas?

Your radios could be programmed with subaudible tones (CTCSS) or digital code squelch (DCS) which the new radios do not have. They can be programmed for it, you need to find out what tone/code you are using.
It could also be that your existing radios are programmed for a "duplex" repeater channel, with different transmit and receive frequencies. The new radios might be on the "repeater output" frequency so they would not activate the repeater.
Both could be the case, missing tone and duplex frequencies.
I would check the programming of the new and old radios, especially for tone/code squelch.

Can a pair of Kenwood TK 3160 work with Baofeng BF888s I have a Baofend and another coworker has the second Baofeng.Our shipping office bosses have Kenwood TK_3160 can they share channel 7


Here goes. Yes, your Baofeng Ham radios could be programmed onto a business band channel. Yes, it could transmit. BUT, ham radios do not meet the stringent requirements that Business Band radios do. This refers to channel spacing, interference and a long list that Business radios are required to have to make operation legal. Therefore, your Baofeng makes a great scanner. Business band frequencies are to be used by radios meeting these stringent requirements in order to prevent interference. Failure to follow the FCC Rules could result in a hefty fine. Didn't you wonder about the price difference?

Check the input output settings.
the baofeng is notorious for being somewhat difficult to program manually.
Try the software setup if possible.

Will not transmit to a repeater


1) are you within range,?
2) is there an obstruction between you and the repeater?
3) do you have the proper PL tome programmed for the repeater?

Baofeng uv-5r will not transmit


Sounds like you have the transmit lockout set. this radio is a bit of a pain to program, but is well worth the effort. your best bet is save your settings (backup) and do a full factory reset, and start over, making sure you did not lock out the transmit on any channel or VFO...

It's not programmed right. You can probably find more intelligible programming instructions on Google. Their manuals are not great.

Unable to transmit


The CTCSS codes are probably not set correctly. Baofeng manuals are notoriously hard to read. Look online (Google) alternative programming instructions.
