How is your antenna? Do you have another 2 M radio? Try feeding a dummy load and listening on another radio nearby. Look at the display when you transmit. Does it show the right frequency? If you have the offset wrong and it is taking you outside the band, it will likely not transmit. Do you have a power meter? Does the rig's current drain go up when you try to transmit? (Does the power supply keep the voltage up when you try to transmit?) Supply voltage dropping will cause the rig to NOT actually transmit.

I have a Kenwood TM-D710A transceiver. It receives great, but when I go to transmit, it keeps resetting itself. I did a complete reset and reprogrammed, and it still resets itself when pushing the tra


Usually that is a sign of voltage drop when the radio draws current, make sure your power supply is large enough + about 50% more than the fuse ratings on the radio. Also check every power connection and make sure they are tight.

Tm 281a cannot accept programed data to memory


Are you getting any errors when you turn it on?

Usually if you are having an issue like that you will get an error. I have a old Radio Shack HTX 404 that the battery that keeps the memory "alive" is shot, so if I turn it off for more than an hour it loses everything. But when I power it on....it throws an error at me before I do the reset.

I have a tk -250 and I can hear everyone talking but when I try to respond to them all it does is beep


Are you sure the people you hear talking are in the band limits of the radio. Generally, when they beep on transmit it's because you're trying to transmit out of band. If the stations you're hearing are near the band edge it's possible you have the "offset" wrong and when you hit the PTT, the shift (offset) in the wrong direction is taking the radio out of band.

Kenwood TM-281 channel


Hello Jason,

I take it you do not have the user manual for this radio, if this is so try this: join yahoo group specific to your radio Make/Model, there's a wealth of info and advice available plus, you can download manuals, diagrams and more for your radio, and it's all completely free.

I hope I have helped you here.

Cheers,
Peter

Motorla Xtn446 - Kenwood Protalk Dosent Transmit


One or both of your radios have PL ( aka private line, tone code, interference eliminators) activated. Here is a link to a link which contains the XTN446 manual(s). Click on the "support" tab to see the list: http://www.motorola.com/Business/XU-EN/Business+Product+and+Services/Unlicensed+Two+Way+Business+Radios/XTR446_XU-EN

First I would try setting the radio's CODE to off (usually zero) and see if that solves the problem. Otherwise, you'll either need to experiment, or find a user guide for the Kenwood. (You could try posting in the Kenwood forum.)

Best regards.
