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.

Why not just get a differant radio capable for beacons. 406mhz is what they've changed to.
.
You used a part that was not compatable with your radio. The VX-150 has a differant size plug than the VXA-150
You'll need to take the radio to repair or bend the jack back to the size for the appropiate headphones.

SOURCE: I just purchased two Baofeng BF 888s radios and had them programmed to our frequency here. They will both receive and transmit with each other but not transmit to the radios we already had. Any ideas?

Your radios could be programmed with subaudible tones (CTCSS) or digital code squelch (DCS) which the new radios do not have. They can be programmed for it, you need to find out what tone/code you are using.
It could also be that your existing radios are programmed for a "duplex" repeater channel, with different transmit and receive frequencies. The new radios might be on the "repeater output" frequency so they would not activate the repeater.
Both could be the case, missing tone and duplex frequencies.
I would check the programming of the new and old radios, especially for tone/code squelch.

SOURCE: My baofeng uv-5r will not transmit any solutions?

Don't know what software you used but try looking up a program called Chirp on the internet and use it to progran the radio. The program gets updated a lot. It has worked well for a large group of us. Is the battery fully charged?

SOURCE: My new baofeng uv5rv2+ won't transmit. How do I fix this? My other radio light up like they are get a singnal but you don't hear anyone talking

Download a free program called "Chirp" and with a program cable you can connect and program and also check the programs in the HT and by default these radios are not programed. You will need to know the frequencies and PL tones to enter into the programing software, These are a true pain in the neck and almost impossible to program from the keypad. buy the program cable from the dealer or off of Ebay and use CHIRP to do this.

Check your settings for the RX frequency. Then check to see if the RX Tone is turn on and is set to the correct frequency. Just turning the rx tone off should allow you to hear any station coming in.

Baofeng uv-5r will not transmit


Sounds like you have the transmit lockout set. this radio is a bit of a pain to program, but is well worth the effort. your best bet is save your settings (backup) and do a full factory reset, and start over, making sure you did not lock out the transmit on any channel or VFO...
