Uniden gmr2638_2ck is always stuck on receive. Rd is always showing and static coming from the speaker

Adjust your SQUELCH control or setting so that the noise disappears. The RX indicator will go out.

One of three Uniden GMR3740-3CK constantly recieves static that goes on and off. tried swapping batteries and did not work. rx display goes on. Very annoying. Other 2 radios are fine. Is there a setti

Well, it IS the squelch level. Most radios do not have an adjustment for this. Take the bad one back, you've done all the tests you can. Good job.

Have a Kenwood TK-2200 that transmits just fine but does not receive. When powered up the white noise/static is constant. Any fix for this?

Many times static/white noise is a sign of a bad or low battery. You might try trading the battery with a known good unit to see if the problem goes away. Also, you may want to check your antenna, trade it with a known good antenna and see if it is the issue. Beyond this your radio would need to be looked at by a repair tech.

Best regards.

My uniden UH3O5sx is always stuck on receive (rx is always showing) can receive but not transmit

Set up your privacy tones or adjust the squelch level to stop the static and bring the handy out of receive mode. Some models have a busy channel lock out, that if it beleives it hears something it will not let you transmit over the other station.

Can get headset to work right

check your radios settings, this should be available in a menu on the radio... the user manual does not show a setting for non vox operation of the head set, (as this maybe a version difference it may be available in the menu) so if it is not available in the menu with the rest of the settings it is not an option.

Motorola talkabout MR350 headset only sends audio and can not recieve

Likely not compatible. One thing to try is to make certain the transmitting unit is turned OFF when you initially plug in the headset. Sometimes if a headset is plugged into a radio when it is already ON, the headset will appear to be in VOX (voice activated) mode and will not allow the user to receive. Also, if this headset has an inline PTT, it may not be compatible with the radio and you would need to use the PTT on the radio.

If this doesn't work, you would need to use the TalkAbout headset designed for the MR350.

Best regards.

Cant reset my motorola talkabout t5000

Constant static can be a sign of a bad or low battery. If the battery is known to be good, try the radios outside the factory setting to see if the problem persists. If you have no problem when you are away from the machinery, you may need to set your interference eliminator code to a number other than zero. This will turn your eliminator ON, which will block out the radio frequency interference caused by the machines.

If the problem persists outside of the factory, then you should try replacing the batteries. OR possibly just cleaning the battery contacts with a pencil eraser.

The method you are using for resetting the radio will take the radio back to the factory default settings. It will not solve the problems listed above. It will only reset the frequency and code back to the original settings.

Voice activation

The Motorola T-5000R does not have VOX capabilties. Page 23 in the manual explains this.

TK-3202LU16P Radio

Hello ppaseka,

The Kenwood TK3202 onky supports VOX use with three specific models of Kenwood headsets: the KHS-1, KHS-21, and KHS-22. You will want to ensure that you are using one of these three headsets and that the Push-to-Talk is set to the VOX position.

Additionally the VOX function must be enabled in the radio. This can only be done by the dealer programming the radios. If the Voice Operated Transmit function was enabled by dealer who sold the radios to you then you may still need to set the VOX sensitivity level to ensure that function is sentitive enough to register the user's voice. The steps to setting the VOX sensitivity level are located on pages 20-21 of the radio's users manual which is available for download here.

Best Regards
