Question about Radio Communications
Baofeng UV5 RA RECIEVES JUST FINE BUT WILL NOT TRANSMIT..Have programmed it according to manual ..When I Transmit in the Frs bands thr voice comes out garbled lsounding like a space alien but int the 440 mh and 146 mh bands nothing....
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.

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.)

Testimonial: "I set interferance code to zero and it works Thank you Ken"
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.
