Question about Cobra MicroTalk PR 1100 WX (15 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Cobra Microtalk PR 240-2 Radios. One of the radios transmits on a frequency that is one less than the displayed channel, that is, when channel 9 is displayed, the radio transmits on a frequency of 467.5625 MHz, which is actually channel 8. This is true for all channels. The frequency is always off by one channel. This was confirmed by using a frequency scanner. Can this be easily corrected?

Hello lstimpson,

You may have the CTCSS privacy code function enabled on one radio and not on the other. This function keeps your radio's received muted unless it receives a signal from another radio using the same privacy code. If you have Privacy Codes set for radio A but not for radio B you will still be able to transmit from A to B but when you transmit on radio B your signal will not be heard on radio A.

Make sure that both radios are set to the same privacy code or that the function is turned off on both radios.

Best Regards,
Ken

Just in case these radios have been modified, or have lost there settings, please perform the following:
All radios must be tuned to the same channel and privacy code to communicate. To successfully communicate using a privacy code, both the sending and receiving radios must be tuned to the same channel and to the same privacy code system (CTCSS or DCS) and privacy code number. Each channel will remember the last privacy code system and number you select.
The privacy code 00 is not a privacy code, but allows all signals to be heard on a channel that is set to 00 on both the CTCSS and DCS systems.

Channels 1 through 7 are shared with FRS/GMRS. Channels 8 through 14 are FRS only.
Channels 15 through 22 are GMRS only.

To select a CTCSS privacy code:
1. After selecting a channel, press the Mode/Power button until the CTCSS icon appears and the small numbers next to the channel number flash on the display. If DCS is turned on at the channel selected, the display will flash the CTCSS icon and "OFF." To switch from DCS to CTCSS, press the Channel Up or Channel Down button while the display is flashing "OFF." The display will then show the small numbers flashing and you will then be able to proceed to step 2.
2. Press using the Channel Up or Channel Down button to select a privacy code. You can hold the Up or Down button for fast advance.
3. When your desired CTCSS privacy code is displayed, choose one of the following:
a. Press the Mode/Power button to enter the new setting and proceed to other functions.
b. Press the Lock button to enter the new setting and return to Standby mode.
c. Do not press any buttons for 15 seconds to enter the new setting and return to Standby mode.

To select a DCS privacy code:
1. After selecting a channel, press the Mode/Power button until the DCS icon appears and the
small numbers flash on the display (01 through 83).
2. Press using the Channel Up or Channel Down button to select a DCS privacy code. You can hold the Up or Down button for fast advance.
3. When your desired DCS privacy code is displayed, choose one of the following:
a. Press the Mode/Power button to enter the new setting and proceed to other functions.
b. Press the Lock button to enter the new setting and return to Standby mode.
c. Do not press any buttons for 15 seconds to enter the new setting and return to Standby mode.

I'm looking at a price range somewhere in the area of 40 - 120 $$ to buy them new. If YOU can fix them without getting a tech involved then go for it but you will need a frequency counter that covers the range and they don't give them away cheap and the repair cost wouldn't be cheap either. I would buy another pair.

Transmitting


Hello lstimpson,

You may have the CTCSS privacy code function enabled on one radio and not on the other. This function keeps your radio's received muted unless it receives a signal from another radio using the same privacy code. If you have Privacy Codes set for radio A but not for radio B you will still be able to transmit from A to B but when you transmit on radio B your signal will not be heard on radio A.

Make sure that both radios are set to the same privacy code or that the function is turned off on both radios.

Brand New Cobra microtalk won't work!


Double check against all the instructions - in particular, make sure the batteries are charged according to "before first use" spec, that the volume is turned up, and that the squelch (if fitted and not automatic) is adjusted properly. If it still doesn't work, take it back to Wal-Mart. If the product doesn't work, there's no need for the packaging to be in good condition - it's not as if they'll be needing it to resell the goods to anybody else. A.
