Bellsouth 2231 Walkie Talkies and No Manual

I bought 2 Walkie Talkies for nothing on Ebay to help myself and my wife to communicate since I'm disabled and when I'm in another room if I fall or need her we would both keep our radios on for this reason... The problem is I didn't get any type of manual with the set we have pretty much figured out some of the buttons etc. But we both agree there are things we could still learn from a manual. if you have access to a manual and could send it as a PDF it would be greatly appreciated Thanks, Michael

Both phones are displaying out of range please advise

Walkie talkies talk to each other. Try transmitting (talk to each other) so they receive a signal first. Do it in the same room. The try for range. It is not much. Even for a GMRS radio, these are low power and short range. Under 2 miles, must be able to "see" each other.

Both walkie talkies are on the same channel, but will not transmit voice messages

Check your Code setting. Both the frequency and the code must be identical for the units to communicate. Shut off any special features and keep the radios at a simple setting until you get communications back.

Hello Ty,

Tis a problem you have there, however I would advise you take one of your radios to radioshack or similar store, and the folk there should be able to assist in finding the apropriate chargers for you.

I hope this helps you in your quest.

I bought walkie talkies with 56 km radius and yet we are lucky to reach each other after approx. 1 mile,any idea why we don't get the range

You do not mention the particular model of Motorola, so this answer will be generic in nature. Some Motorola TalkAbout radios have been factory programmed with a few GMRS repeater frequencies. These channels require the use of a repeater tower, which will 'repeat' what you say over a greater distance. It is possible you have this type of radio. Check your user guide, and then set your radio to the appropriate channel for the repeater in your area.

Radio-to-radio without the use of a repeater you can expect up to 2 miles line-of-sight out of most handheld radios. This distance is reduced by obstacles such as buildings, trees, etc. inbetween the radios. It can also be reduced if you do not hold the antenna of the radio perpendicular to the ground.

Best regards.

I can't get my walkie talkie to go it's full 20 miles its only reaches maybe 3 miles or so it dont make any scence to me. also how can i comunicate with cb's in semi's

The distance claims made by FRS/GMRS radio manufacturers are fairy tales. The frequencies that these radios operate on are line-of-sight only, meaning that ANYTHING between the radios (buildings, hills, trees, etc.) will block the signals. Unless you're transmitting from one hilltop to another, with nothing between the two, 2 to 3 miles is the maximum effective distance for any of these radios.

On your other question, FRS/GMRS radios and CB radios operate on different frequencies bands, so you cannot communicate between the two types of radios. In order to communicate with CB radio operators, you will need a CB radio.
