Re: How do you unlock the channel?

I think by "unlock the channels" you mean bypassing the transmit power restriction on FRS channels. Basically, the GMRS channels are the only ones that allow full power transmissions. I'm not familiar with that particular model; however, I have used many other FRS/GMRS radios (including those manufactured by Midland). My guess is that the restriction is programmed into the hardware itself. The microcontroller would have to be reprogrammed. I would highly doubt this is even possible since many devices that are mass produced, have there programming hard-coded onto some sort of rom. It would be easier to build your own radio, then you could transmit at any power on any frequency. One more thing, those restrictions are in place for a reason, it's against the law to transmit on FRS channels at a power level of greater than 1/2 watt. The FRS channels are there for a reason, you don't need an FCC license to use them. Anyway, I hope this clears up any confusion.

What does TOT mean on display?

TOT Penalty means: If the radio transmits more than a set time, it will beep an T-O-T error tone and the radio will only receive a signal for the penalty time. (TX inhibited for this time).

Under the above mode, press Up/Down buttons to select On or Off and then press Mode button or PTT button to set Busy Channel Lock Out. The radio will then save selection and exit to receiving stand-by
To DISABLE... navigate the menu to "PENALTY" in the display... press mode button... then use UP or DOWN buttons to select mode... to disable select "OF" (which means off).

Good Luck.

Oops, misplaced my manual for my Midland LXT walkie talkie radios. How do I get a specific channel to use. When I push the scan button it goes thru channels 1 thru 22 but how do I stop it on a specific...


Channels are selected by tapping the center button once then using the arrows. The next tap of the center takes you to the CTCSS, DCS, and other functions follow. When scanning simply tap the transmit button and it should stop on the selected channel. Channels 8-14 are FRS channels at 500mw. These are the preferred channels to use for most people. 1-7and 15-22 are considered GMRS and requires a FCC License. Many people have been known to use these channels without having the license. This form of pirating is not recommended. I have included these links which could be of help to you.
