Very true. VOX is NOT a whisper mode. It takes a full voice directed into the microphone. On the other hand, too noisy an environment will trip the mic, making the radios unusable.

If you are following the instructions and still it seems not to work, perhaps you are not talking loudly enough above the threshold trigger level and you need to speak up or speak closer to the mike.. If that doesn't work. Have the sets looked at.

We recently purchased the MS350 radios and are trying to use them handfree with the headsets. We plugged in the headsets, turned on the radios, but are unable to communicated back and forth using the VOX...


The three things which come to mind are:
1) Is the headset the VOX headset intended for the radio model? Sometimes the rings on the plug do not match the internal points of contact if it is not the intended headset. Not all headsets are VOX capable.
2) Is the headset plugged in all the way. (You mentioned plugging in and then turning on. This is good. You must always have the radio turned off when plugging or unplugging an audio device.)
3) Try pressing the PTT on the headset cord one time before switching the dip switch to VOX. (Assuming you have a headset with the small box in the line.)

Check your VOX/ iVOX settings. You will need VOX for using an audio device.

Lastly, if you continue to have difficulties, contact Motorola at the 800# provided in the user guide. They should be able to assist you.

Best regards.

Uniden turn off vox


Hi Jon,
The problem is easy to solve, so here goes:
vox indicates that your unit is set to work via the microphone(if you have one), and is activated when you start to speak, (hence vox=voice activated microphone), if you don't have the microphone that came with the unit, you will need to buy/borrow one and connect it to the unit, before you can turn off vox, so that the unit can work with or without the microphone(vox will no longer show), once you have done this.
I hope this helps.

Cheers,
Peter

Yaesu VC-27


Hi Jon,

If this is the earpiece that came with the radio & it states that vox is available for the radio, then Yes would be the answer to your query.

But if you are trying to use a yaesu VC-27 vox earpiece with another Make of radio, say - Icom, then no would be the answer, as each manufacturer, programs each radio/earpiece with vox to work only with their radios.

I hope that clears up your query.

Cheers,
Peter

Hi. the mobicam keeps turning on and off and the light is flashing?


What does the VOX switch do?
When the VOX function is active, both the LCD screen & Audio turn off and will automatically reactivate when there is
noise in the room being monitored (e.g. baby crying). This feature is useful at night so the light coming from the screen
doesn't bother you and also when running the MobiCam Ultra receiver on batteries since it will extend the life of the
batteries. Note: The VOX function will not work when batteries are low and you cannot change channels on the receiver in
the VOX mode

I am having trouble programing VOX to work on motorola rdu 2020 2-way radios


Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.twowayradiosfor.com/pdf/RDX-Non-Display-manual.pdf
Instructions for setting the VOX sensitivity are on page 33.

According to the manual you program the VOX using the CPS (software). Three things which usually cause end-user problems are:
1) Failing to set the sensitivity to a number 1, 2, or 3.
2) Failing to have the radio shut off when plugging in the audio device (headset or earpiece)
3) Failing to use a VOX capable audio device. (Not all headsets and earpieces are VOX capable. Many with inline PTTs are not.)

If these items or instructions do not help, stop by your local Motorola dealer to discuss the problem.

Best regards.

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
Ken

VOX


On the right-hand side of the unit, there are two buttons with on/off positions. Both the Speaker and VOX options should be in the off position. When VOX is turned on, it only records when it monitors a level of noise. I do not have it turned on ever.

Motorola T5622 VOX Not Activating with Autocom Sys I have an Autocom (Kit 300) motorbike coms system. I bought the accessory cord that interfaces to the Motorola T5622, for VOX I have followed the Motorola...


Hi Folks, two seperate checks to do - to check vox on autocom and transmit on motorola. With the T5622 unconnected to anything, does the push transmit button work - e.g. does it make the beep noise at the end of transmission?

Does your autocom work with any other sound sources - i.e. mp3 player so you can hear music. Does this mute when you speak ? (it should if vox is working). Note that in this setup vox is provided by autocom - NOT BY THE T5622. The instructions you mention are for the motorola vox kit.

Wire the two together and you should get the motorola beeping through your autocom at the end of transmit - that's what my kit 200 does with my T5622.

Headset problem with Uniden 1558


Determine if this is a VOX problem or a headset problem.

Turn off the VOX. Does the headset work for normal transmit and receive?

Remove the headsets. Do the radios work normally on speaker?

Plug one headset in And test with the (other) radio in speaker mode. Does it work? Now turn on VOX in this mode (yes it will work this way). Does vox work (put you mouth right on the mic)
If so swap headsets and try the other.

If one Hset works but not the other its the headset. If neither works its likely the radio ..but before you decide try the same headset experiment on the other radio. Find out which of the 4 devices the problem follows.

Happy New year
