Batteries. Even on the charger, a shorted battery will cause this. Chargers do not have enough power to allow a radio to transmit.

SOURCE: Motorola FV500 2 way radio can send/cant receive

I'm with Neto on this one. It coul be just a problem with "tones". I'm not familiar with that exact model but check for a "monitor" button. If you have one on the radio... press it down.... this should open up the squelch completely. You should hear static.... thats what you want... basically you will hear everything that transmitted on that channel (frequency) regardless of privacy codes (tones). You can also do the same thing by turning the squelch all the way down to 0 ( as Neto was suggesting). The monitor button is more convient but if you don't have that function do as Neto said and turn the squelch down all the way. Once the squech is turned down or monitor button is engaged you should be able to hear everything transmitted on that channel including static (rushing sound). With the squelch turned down or monitor button pushed, try transmitting on the problem radio... if you can hear the problem radio easily with monitor button pushed or squelch turned down then the privacy codes (tones) are set differently on each radio. You want the privacy codes to be the same on both radios otherwise you won't hear any rx audio or the transmitted audio.

SOURCE: FV500

Your FV500 radio has 11 GMRS/FRS 12.5k frequencies pre-programmed into the radio, which cannot be changed. Here is a link to the user guide http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/manuals/fv500.pdf

You will be limited to the 11 frequencies shown in the upper right of the guide. You could however, reprogram your PRO and EP radios to match the FV500. Note: These frequencies are limited to 1 watt or less.

My motorola fv500 reach only 1/4mile


You may have
1) A low or bad battery.
2) Be holding the radio at an angle and reducing your range. Hold the antenna straight up, perpendicular to the ground, to achieve the best range. Height and placement of the antenna determines range.
3) Or you may be trying to talk in-or-out of a building, which would significantly reduce your range. Obstacles between you and the other radio, as well as the body fluid of a person wearing their radio low on their hip can significantly reduce range.

Best regards.

Motorola FV500 - lots and lots of noise on line..


Hello hanshez,

It's also possible that the noise is being caused by local interence. You could try using a different channel. Disable your interference eliminator function and try listening to the various channels to find a quiet one. The interference codes don't actually eliminate interference they just keep you from hearing activity on the channel that can still interfere with your communications.

As long as there isn't other activity on the channel your radios should be able to communcate. Are the radios able to communicate with each other when you are in the same room? Does the problem occur when your son gets further away? Or when he is outside and you are inside? If so, the issue may be one of range.

These kinds of two-way radios are very good for communiations when the users are within line-of-sight of each other. However communications can become blocked by tall trees and buildings, if one user is inside a building or automobile, etc. The 8-mile range that Motorola lists is really only practical when one user has some altitude over the other and clear line-of-sight, such as being on top of a tall hill outdoors with no nearby buildings. For typical communications over relatively flat ground with no obstructions, I would expect a more typical range of less then one mile. Obstructions can lower this effective communications range even more.

Hope this helps.

Do you hear the Beeps on the speaker? Check for the QT and the code squelch are the same in both radios, try to set code squelch in "0". Make sure that the radio is not receiving or the other one is not transmiting, with two radios will see the same.
