Without throwing it on the bench it is hard to say, the fact that you can hear static is important, (most people leave this out) this can mean that it is not on the correct frequency or the receiver is damaged. It may just be worth purchasing a new pair giving you a spare battery pack, charger and what ever accessories it came with as well as a third complete radio, unless it is still under warranty, in which you should make use of that.

I have a set of Motorola T5720 walkie Talkies. I cannot determine if one of them is not receiving or the other is not transmitting.


One radio works properly, the other can receive. I assume there are more than two by the question. Check and then rotate you batteries, mark on the working unit battery that it is GOOD. Transmit takes a great deal more power than receiving. Batteries, even un-used only last 18-24 months typically. If no joy, then check your programming but I think that is unlikely. It really sounds like a power/battery issue.

IS there a way to check if my walkie talkie antenna is borken


The antennas break, most often internally at the solder joint on the main board. There really is not test other than it works poorly. You could wiggle it when transmitting and if you hear static, popping or other noise, stop transmitting at once! Transmitting without a working antenna can damage a radio. The repair is to take it apart and resolder.

Use a audiovox walkie talkie


What is your question about using the walkie talkie? These are standard FRS low power walkie talkies. You need to set both to the same channel. Turn both on. Push the transmit button and speak into the microphone which is on the face of the radio. You should hear the voice in the other walkie talkie.

Note; all of these FRS talkies have substantially less range than advertised. They should provide reliable service within about 1/4 mile line of sight, no more. In an urban environment with lots of buildings you will get less.

Constant static on my walkie talkie


Check the squelch level, either the knob or on the menu. When the squelch is 'open', there will be constant noise. If someone is transmitting nearby, do you hear them clearly? If not there may be a problem with the receiver in the radio.

What does Mon mean on a walkie talkie?


"Mon" is short for "Monitor" and is usually a feature that allows you to momentarily break the squelch (signal filter) and hear anything being transmitted on that frequency. That includes static if there's no transmissions. It allows you to listen for a weak signal that can't break the squelch threshold you have set. Some radios allow you to lock it open by pressing and holding the MON button for a few seconds. Turn the feature off my doing the same thing.

My motorola xtr446 has an icon stuck on it and no one else can hear me when i speak out? how do i get rid of the icon? the icon is a mini walkie talkie


The mini walkie talkie emblem has a variety of meanings. If the emblem has parenthese around it your PTT (push to talk) button is depressed, stuck or partially depressed. If the emblem does not have parenthese your radio is in receive mode, awaiting a call.

It is possible you do not have your radio programmed identical to the other radio(s). Your frequency and interference code eliminator must be identical to those used in the other radios. Here is a link to the manual where you can check this http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Business/Products/Two-Way%20Radios%20-%20Unlicensed/_Documents/XTR446/Static%20Files/XTR%20Manual%20EU.pdf?localeId=103 Look around page 7 for instructions.

Also, if you find your radios are programmed identically, the other problem might be bad or low batteries, as it takes more energy to transmit than to receive.

Best regards.
