Model? Brand? Anything else? It "sounds" like you are trying to transmit on an unprogrammed channel. Hard to say without more information.

I bought a baofeng uv5r and want to link it to my work radio which is a vertex standard vx160u..I can transmit from the work radio to the baofeng but cant figure out how to transmit back to the vertex


First of all, technically, you can't use this radio to talk to anyone other than ham radio- that being said, if you want to proceed at your own risk. Ok, is your work radio an analog radio? Is it narrowband FM? Is it digital MOTOTRBO? Last two will make if difficult. Digital is impossible. Next, find out the exact transmit and receive frequencies for your radio. They may not be both the same if you have a radio 'repeater' your input frequency could be 5MHz higher than your receive frequency. And last- you need to know if your system has a "PL" tone (CTCSS, or DCS) subaudible tone that will break the squelch. So there are several variables that you will need your plant supervisor to relay to you. Good luck. You can probably get much of this info on line from radio reference.

Binatone Action 1000 Two-way radios. We can't transmit to others. Only our selves.


These radios are probably working on a different call guard tone than the other users you are trying to reach. If you have a manual, look up instructions on how to program a different tone. Hope this helps!

How do i stop my radio from making that bloop bloop noise after i key it


You are either describing a CALL TONE ( The Call Tone obtains others’ attention before you start talking) or the ROGER BEEP (When you turn on this feature, your two-way radio transmits a unique tone when you
finish transmitting. It’s like saying “Roger” or “Over” and lets others know you’re
finished talking.)

To shut off the roger beep, hold in the plus + button while turning the radio on.

The CALL TONE may or may not be a feature of your T5210 radio. I am unable to open the online manual for it to tell for certain. If it does have a CALL TONE feature you would access it by pressing the MENU button until you see a "CA" on the screen along with a number. Using the plus or minus button change the setting to zero, followed by pressing the menu button or the PTT button. The zero setting is equivalent to OFF.

Hi there i have a strange icon in one of my radios


The icon you are describing is the "roger beep" icon. It would not be the reason your radio is not transmitting. Most likely your programming has been changed. Here is a link to the manual where you can read how to program the radio's frequency and interference eliminator code. http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T5320_T5410_T5420_User_Manual_E.pdf

Roger Beep/Talk Confirmation Tone
When you turn on this feature, your two-way radio transmits a unique tone when you
finish transmitting. It’s like saying “Roger” or “Over” and lets others know you’re
finished talking.
• To enable Roger Beep/Talk Confirmation Tone, press and hold + (plus button) as you turn
your radio On. Now, when you release the PTT button, your set tone lets your
friends know you’re finished talking and will appear on the display.
• To disable the Talk Confirmation Tone feature, turn your radio Off and then back
On while pressing and holding the + (plus) button.

One radio makes loud tone when other radio transmits


You may have a defective radio that has a bad push to talk switch which doesn't mute the receiver and feeds back audio to itself or this could be a bad solder connection or a broken wire inside.
Not much you can do except replace it or have a tech look at it.

Ring tone thingy


Setting and Transmitting Call Tones
Your radio can transmit different call tones to other radios in your group so you can alert them that you want to talk.
To set a call tone:
1. With the radio on, press MENU 3 times. The current call tone setting flashes and displays.
2. Press + or - to change and hear the call tone.
3. Press MENU or PTT to set the new call tone or turn feature off.

Muting the sound


Hi,

The sound produced by a Motorola radio when the mike is keyed refers to the "Transmitting Call Tone" which is another feature other than the "Interference Eliminator" or the "Roger Beep" feature.

On most Motorola GMRS/FRS TalkAbout radios, setting the "Call Tone" to 0 disables the feature. This is done with the radio ON by pressing on the "Menu" button 3 times which will result in the display showing the current Call Tone setting (flashing) and the letters CA; pressing on the <- or +> buttons will change selection (you will also hear the different Tones), select 0 (it may be up to 5 or 10 depending on the version). Press on the "Menu" or "PTT" button to set, save and exit.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Radio Mic


Check the squelch on your radio thats not recieving. If there is a monitor button ( when pushed you will hear static) try pushing it.. then get someone to call you so you can check if you can hear them. On these radios you have 2 types of squelch....1 is called carrier squelch.... it basically opens when there is a strong enough signal. This lets you only hear strong signals and "squelch out" the distant ones and background static. The2nd. is "tone squelch" ... with your radio they are often called privacy tones. If you have 2 radios set with the same privacy tones you will only be able to hear each other... only radios that are transmitting with that privacy tone will be heard on your radio. Its a high frequency tone that can't be hear by the human ear that gets "embeded" with the transmitting signal. The recieving radio hears it and opens the squelch. So... if the radio thats rxing (recieving)your signal has its squelch set for just carrier squelch it will hear any signal thats strong enough to break the squech open.... basicaly any radio within a certain range. But if your radio (one with problem) has its squelch set for privacy tones you will not hear any other radios except the ones set with the same privacy tone.... the squelch will not open until it gets a tx signal with the right tone.... so if the txing (transmitting) radio is not using tone squelch but is using carrier squelch.... and the rxing radio is set for tone squelch... the rxing radio will not hear it. With tone (privacy tones/codes) squelch you need a tone to open the squelch and then the audio can be heard... with carrier squelch the squelch will open if ANY radio is within a certain range. Check the squelch setting on the problem radio... it could have a privacy tone set. Try pushing in the monitor button so you can hear static ( you want to hear everything including static) on both radios... tx on one radio at a time and listen if it can be heard on the other with the monitor button pushed. If you can't hear any audio when the broken one is transmitting then it COULD be the mic.... if you can hear both radios with the monitor button activated than the radios are txing and have tx audio and are working... if thats the case its the privacy tones that are the problem. Take care
