Commonly this can be a sign of a low or bad battery. It takes more power to transmit than to receive, so when you press the PTT button on a radio with a poorly charged or bad battery it will often fail. The same radio will run in standby mode (receive only) for long periods of time.

So before looking for a more complex problem, you might try swapping your battery with another radio's known good battery to see if it solves the problem.

Best regards.

SOURCE: They just don't seem to work!

I had the same problem, I solved it my holding down the PTT button on one and the scan option on the other. It seems that the channel indications are faulty and and Channel 1 on one matches with Channel 15 on the other and so on. But once this was sorted the units work fine.

follow instructions on page 13 of your manual "using monitor button" place receiving radio in monitor and key up other radio. It is better if you have someone help. have another person take the radio to another room away from you to complete test. sometimes if the radios are two close too each other they will cancel each other out.

SOURCE: TK 380 not transmiting

Its most likely was programmed with a rx but no tx. Meaning it can recieve but not transmit, you can fix this with the programing software.

PTT button on RDV 2020 is hard to push


This problem is typically caused by small component behind the PTT button being cracked or broken. The RDX series radios respond best if the user presses the PTT button in the center versus the top or bottom sections of the button. Once the button becomes hard to press it is best to get the radio repaired. Commonly if the radio remains in use the PTT issue will get worse as the internal PTT component is pressed harder, pushing it further away from the outside button and eventually loosening it from the component board.

Best regards.

Simple HOW-TO


If your radios are set identical to one another, you simple need to press the push-to-talk button (PTT) and hold it in while talking. Let go when you are not talking, in order for the other person to be able to press their PTT and talk back to you. The monitor button is only for checking to see if other users are talking on your same frequency, and if so, you are to be polite and not talk over the top of them. (So the rules say.)
