Sorry to hear of your difficulty. There are a few things which come to mind. First, if you have only two radios, check the good radio to see if anything is plugging or covering the mic hole. Then if the good radio is not the problem, check the bad radio for debris or something covering the speaker holes. If this does not reveal a problem, the next issues are possible, but not resolveable: You either have a bad volume potentiometer (internal volume device) or your speaker is bad.

Press and hold the + (plus) button while turning the radio on. This will turn the Roger Beep on or off.

Instruction manual


Here is a link to the 5200 series user manual: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T5XxX_User_Manual_E.pdf

Check your Frequency, interfernence Code eliminator and Qt filter (if any). These all should match each other on all your radios.

Another issue which will cause a radio to receive but not transmit is a low or bad battery. It takes more energy to transmit, than to receive.

Best regards.

How do i stop my radio from making that bloop bloop noise after i key it


You are either describing a CALL TONE ( The Call Tone obtains others’ attention before you start talking) or the ROGER BEEP (When you turn on this feature, your two-way radio transmits a unique tone when you
finish transmitting. It’s like saying “Roger” or “Over” and lets others know you’re
finished talking.)

To shut off the roger beep, hold in the plus + button while turning the radio on.

The CALL TONE may or may not be a feature of your T5210 radio. I am unable to open the online manual for it to tell for certain. If it does have a CALL TONE feature you would access it by pressing the MENU button until you see a "CA" on the screen along with a number. Using the plus or minus button change the setting to zero, followed by pressing the menu button or the PTT button. The zero setting is equivalent to OFF.

Will a Motorola TalkAbout T5320 transmit to a Motorola TalkAbout T5530?


Hello Blindmaster,

Check the Continuous Tone Coded Squelch (CTCSS) settings on all the radios. (Note that some manufacturers refer to this feature as a “Privacy Code” or “Quiet Code.” The actual name of the feature may vary.) This feature encodes a low-frequency signal on your radio transmission. This signal is below the range of human hearing but can be detected by other radios. When the CTCSS feature is active your radio will ignore any signal that it receives that does not have the proper tone encoded on it.

In order for these radios to communicate, all of the radios need to be on the same channel and have the same CTCSS code programmed or the CTCSS feature must be disabled.

I suspect that CTCSS is activated on your T5530s but is not enabled on your T5320. This would result in the situation you describe.

Also take note that when using different brands / models of radios to communicate with one another that the CTCSS code numbering scheme may not necessarily be the same from radio to radio. For instance, CTCSS code “4” on the Motorola TalkAbout series actually corresponds to code “A” on the Motorola Sport models.

Best Regards,

Agent Ken
