Question about Standard Horizon GX1255S 2-Way Radio

Open Question

VHF radio When I switch on the weather station or listen in on any chanel every thing is ok. However when I do a radio check I get no reply. The unit is a standard horizion GX1255S. The buttons on the mic work great and when the transmit button is pressed it apears to send the signal. Is it possible that the microphone inside the hand held is broke. If so where do I get a new one?

SOURCE: I am having trouble finding a replacement battery for my hand held VHF. It is a standard horizon model # HX350s


  • The pack itself consists or 8 AA NiCad rechargeable batteries. The ones used to make battery packs have metal tabs on the positive and negative side rather than how the AA normally come. This is because soldiering to standard batteries is a pain if not dangerous and flat batteries make a much cleaner pack as well. So you can take that old pack apart and soldier 8 rechargeable NiCads in the exact same way as the one your radio uses. If you don't have soldiering skills the the $40 pack would be advised.


  • Hope this helps.

Icom m36 will not receive. Speaker makes noise with squelch all the way up but just won't receive anything including weather.


You may have the CTCSS tone squelch enabled so unless a station you're listening to is encoding CTCSS tones, you won't hear the traffic you're expecting.

Cannot receive weather channel information


Antenna connected? Station off air due to bad weather? Is the 'squelch' set to you hear static, then turn it back just to where it stops hissing? Try that and let me know.

My UNIDEN UM525 receive only near and strongly stations


First, check your antenna, could have been struck by lightning or corrosion could be setting in, if it's corrosion you would not be able to see it. Before going into your radio, try the radio with a different antenna. You never mentioned weather the radio are transmitting or not, knowing this the technition would have a better idea where to check for the problem. Good luck.

Hi my pro 96 scanner recieves nearby stations poorly


If you're talking about a digital trunked system with multiple towers or a simulcast system, then 'welcome to the club'. I have the same problem, but that only applies to digital trunked multisite P25 9600 baud systems. Everything else should be clear. What band are you trying to listen to: VHF Lo, VHF Hi, UHF, 800MHz, analog or digital? RS's more expensive antenna will give you better reception on VHF over the 'stock' rubber antenna that they give you. Let me know what you're trying to hear, and I can help more on this issue. Okay?

I have the same problem and not just with the FM tuner. I have spoken to Aluratek about the sluggishness of this radio. Their reply was to not push the buttons ore than once. The radio will eventually work.

HOW DO YOU GET THE WEATHER CHANNEL ON WALKIE TALKIE?


Your radio must have VHF capability, as weather channels are VHF. Then your radio must be programmable to the weather channel for your desired area. If you repost a question including your Motorola radio name/model, we could be more specific.

Need to make sure programmed


Program the Midland 74-109 Weather Radio
a) Turn unit on. Extend the antenna. Adjust volume up slowly; Do you hear anything? If not, try replacing the 9 volt battery with a fresh one, in the accessible battery compartment underneath the unit. Repeat above steps.
b) If no sound is heard, turn unit over and look for "WEATHER" slide switch on bottom. With unit on & volume adjusted to comfortable hearing level, slowly slide switch down (or up) through various frequencies [1)162.550, 2) 162.400, 3) 162.475, 4) 162.425, 5) 162.450, 6) 162.500, 7) 162.525] until voice transmissions are heard. This should be the closest National Weather Service (NWS) broadcast for your area. Check the NWS website at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrbro.htm for your state, click on the state name, and look for the site name or site location nearest you. The frequency for that site should be the strongest, and appropriate for your area.
c) You can set the alert tone, for special weather alert broadcasts, on the bottom of the unit on the slide switch marked "ALERT". Set the switch to the desired type of alert: 1) LED [LED on top of unit (marked ALERT) lights up when alert is broadcast-no siren tone/alarm is heard] 2) LED & ALARM [LED lights up and alarm/ siren tone is heard] 3) VOICE [LED on top of unit lights up and voice broadcast is heard, only; no siren tone/alarm is heard].
d) Be sure to press the "ALERT" button on top of the unit and leave the volume at a comfortable listening level to hear weather alerts for your area (Alert LED on top of unit lights up to show Alert function is active). You can test the present volume level by pressing the "TEST" button. Be sure to press the "ALERT" button again after listening to the volume level to re-set the Alert function. You can listen to weather broadcasts anytime, by pressing the "WEATHER" button. After listening, be sure to re-press the "ALERT" button to reset the Alert function.
e) 9 volt battery life should last about 6 to 7 months, depending on how much unit is used an number of alerts received. Replace battery every 6 months, or when you replace your smoke alarm battery, or at beginning and end of daylight savings time. A 12 volt AC adapter to replace the battery, can be used. One should have been supplied with unit. If not, a replacement can be found at Radio Shack.
f) This should complete your Midland Weather Alert Radio Model 74-109 programming.

I have a motorolla jt100 with no sound


Since you are receiving the weather (Wx) channel, the radio appears to be receiving fine. It might be that your fire frequencies are not programmed into the radio. Check your programming, as well as checking your scan list. The Wx channel should not be included in the scan list, as there is constant radio traffic on this frequency, and your radio would get stuck there during the scan process.
