Re: Roger Beep

Hi Helen,

On most Motorola radios, to remove the roger beep, while powered on, you need to press the menu button until the Roger Beep indicator in the display starts to flash. Press on the + or - to change status. Press on the PTT to save and exit.

Hope this be of some help. Pls post back if it worked or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

We have MotorolaModel SX700 series. When any of them are turned on they just continually beep. What does this mean and how do I turn the beeping off?

This can be a sign of a bad or poorly charged battery. Or you might try reprogramming the radios to shut off any special features, putting the radio back into a very basic mode.
If you need help with programming here is a link to the user guide page, where you can select your model from the pulldown.
Best regards.

1 of my sx700 is not responding

I would suggest taking the radios back to a very basic programming with the interference eliminator set to zero or off, and any special features shut off. This would enclude Qt filter, call tones, iVox/Vox, vibra call, keypad tones, roger beep, enhanced scan, weather, etc. Set both radios to the same frequency and see if they work. If not, try switching the rechargeable battery from one radio to the other. Does the problem move to the other radio? If so, you need a battery. If neither of these helps, you likely need to replace the radio.

What does vox and rog. Stand for on the cobra microtalk

VOX is the abbreviation for Voice activated transmission, and ROG is likely the abbreviation for Roger Beep, which is a small beep or series of beeps at the end of a transmission that alerts the other person you are talking too that your transmission has ended. this is mostly used when signals are noisy, as the beeps are a sure sign that you have finished your transmission.

In order to get the most out of your new radio, read this reference guide completely before attempting to operate the radio.

Turning the Radio On and Adjusting the Volume

1) Press and hold the key to turn the radio ON.

2) To change the volume level press the volume/monitor up or down key to increase or decrease the volume level.

3) Press and hold the key to turn the radio OFF.

Adjusting the Sound (Key Beeps)

Your radio emits a beep each time one of the keys (except for the PTT button and call key) is pressed.
The sound of the Key Beep will increase or decrease depending on the volume level setting.

To turn OFF this beep:

Press and hold the call key while turning ON the radio.

To turn ON this beep:

Turn the radio OFF and ON again.

Choosing a Channel

Your GMR325-2 radio has 22 channels you can use to talk to others. In order to speak to someone,
each of you must be set to the same channel.

To choose a channel:

Press the channel/scan up or down key to increase or decrease the channel number displayed.

Channel Scan Feature

Your GMR325-2 radio has a channel Scan feature that allows you to easily Scan all 22 channels. When an active channel is detected, the unit will pause on that channel until the channel is clear. Then after a 2 second delay, the unit will continue scanning.

Pressing PTT button while the Scan is paused on a channel will allow you to transmit on that channel.

To turn ON channel scanning:

Press and hold either the channel/scan up or down key. The channel number on the display
will rapidly cycle through the channels.

To turn OFF channel scanning:

Press either the channel/scan up or down key.

Talking on Your Radio

To talk to others using the radio:
1) Press and hold the PTT button and speak in a clear, normal voice about 2-3 inches away from the microphone.

While you are transmitting the tx icon is displayed. To avoid cutting off the first part of your transmission, pause slightly after pressing the PTT button before you start talking.

2) When you are finished speaking, release the PTT button.You can now receive incoming calls. While receiving, the rx icon is displayed.

Transmitting a Call Alert Tone

Your GMR325-2 radio is equipped with a call tone that will be transmitted when the call key is pressed.

To transmit the call alert tone, press the call key.

The tone will automatically be transmitted for a fixed length of time.

Auto Squelch Feature

The GMR325-2 is equipped with an automatic squelch system which shuts off weak transmissions
and unwanted noise due to terrain conditions or if you have reached your range limit.

Monitor Mode Feature

Your GMR325-2 radio allows you to listen for weak signals on the current channel at the press of a key.

To turn ON monitor mode:

Press and hold the volume/monitor up or down key. The rx icon will blink.

To turn OFF monitor mode:

Press the volume/monitor up or down key. The rx icon will stop blinking.

Automatic Power Save Feature

Your GMR325-2 has a unique circuit designed to dramatically extend the life of the batteries. If there is neither transmission nor an incoming call within 2 seconds, your radio switches to the Power Save mode. The radio is still able to receive transmissions in this mode.


Press and hold the call key until the "L" appears. After 1 second, the LCD will return to the channel display.
To exit Keylock on mode, press and hold call again.

Note: While in keylock on mode, it will still receive transmissions.


Roger Beep is a BEEP that is sent to notify the end of transmission.
Roger Beep can be heard through the speaker when Key Beep is on.
Roger Beep is transmitted even if key beep is turned off. However Roger Beep will not be heard from the speaker.

To turn OFF Roger Beep: Press and hold the channel/scan up Key while turning on the radio.

My biggest issue is the "roger" beep. Want to use it for a hunt, but the beep is constant after hitting the PTT button. I have read that on some models, hold the + or volume button while...

Here is a link to the SX700 manual (very close match to the SX800, which we could not find a user guide for)

Look on page 2. Check both the Keypad Tones and the Talk Confirmation Tone (Roger Beep) instructions, on the lower left. This should help you.

When I release my call button it beeps...I would like the beep to stop. Is there a way to stop the beep?

The feature that you describe is known as the "Roger Beep," and most Motorola radios allow it to be switched on and off. The process varies by model number though, and you did not provide that information. Please check your operating instructions - or let us know the model number of your radios.

How do I silence the beeps on this radio

There are two features which cause the radio to make a tone or beep, before or following a transmission: Talk Confirmation Tones (aka Roger Beep) and Call Tones.

On the T6510 radio you would hold in the + (plus) button while turning the radio on, to turn ON the roger beep. To turn it OFF you would hold in the - (minus) button while turning the radio on.

Call Tones are a little more detailed explanation. You can find directions for both in the user guide on page 25:

Best regards.

Strange sound coming from walkie talkie, strange beeping

Most Motorola radios give a beep-beep when the batteries are low and need changing. Make sure to use a good brand of battery. One other thing to check for is leaking batteries, the crud with cut down on performance.
