Hi,I think the problem is with your tone coded squelch (CTCSS). Your radio channel is like a telephone party line. If your CTCSS is not on, everytime you turn your radio on you will hear anyone on that channel that is close enough to hear.
If you are trying to use these radios for serious communications, that will drive you nuts to hear everybody else talking but not about what you need to hear. To try to mitigate this problem, CTCSS was created. There are 38 different codes. If you for example set your unit to operate on code 11 and your other unit is set to operate on code 12, you could not hear each other.
Now let's add a third unit set to not use CTCSS at all. Neither one of you will be able to hear this third unit but he can hear both of you. Now you set the second unit to code 11 like the first unit. Now you will be able to hear each other. The third unit will still be able to hear both of you but since he is not transmitting code 11, you still can't hear him.
If you are hearing some traffic, it is because they have their CTCSS set to the same code that you are set to. Look in you operators manual for CTCSS Privacy Codes. Set your radios accordingly and your problem is solved.
if you still insist on resetting your device,you can get e full description on how to do this in your users manual,if you don't have one you can get it for free at;www.manualsonline.com

In short channels 1-7 and channels 15-22 are GMRS channels are not supposed to be operated by anyone that does not have a GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) license issued by the FCC. They automatically run on high power. Channels 8-14 are FRS (Family radio Service) and can be used by anyone and are set to run on Low Power. The power is not adjustable with this radio. So now for the manual. Uniden made this radio for Radio Shack. So this manual is for the same radio only with the actual Uniden name. Same exact physical radio same exact manual. http://www.uniden.com/pdf/GMR1038-2om.pdf
