Question about Motorola HT1000, MTS2000, MTX8000/9000 Compatible 2 Way Radio Battery Eliminator

1 Answer

HT1000 repair What are the possible solutions to repair an HT1000 that sounds like it's being held up to the wind when transmitting?  Battery, shoulder mic & antenna test ok.  Receives ok.  Repair monitor says its transmitting up to specs.  Repair tech can't determine the issue.  Radio is at least 10yrs old & I'm told by other HT1000 user that this sound is common with older units.  Also aware of Motorola Repair Kit REX4465A - is it applicable to what I mention?

    No noticeable corrosion/rust. Contacts seem okay. I've got 4 HT1000s with the same problem, so I'd kinda doubt they would all have bad contacts.

How to change the squelch on mtx8000

You can always have a radio receive. To transmit require an FCC License, and you need authorization to "Talk" to Public Safety. There are large fines and possible jail time to talk on channels you are not authorized for, especially Public Safety. Sadly, your radio is programmed to monitor only when the button is held down. The frequencies in your area working are a lucky coincidence. Take it to an Authorized Motorola Dealer and pay to have it reprogrammed. Radio is not field programmable. Hold onto your wallet, they are expensive to have programmed. You should have bought a high end digital scanner.

New hand held Midland CB Model #75-785 that will not transmit

Try asking any onrt CB'ers if they can hear you at all.

Could be 2 things -

#1 - you are really too close.

#2 - you've blown the output stage of your rig by keying the mic without an aerial fitted.
- This is very common, and most repair centres are used to dealing with this.
If you are up to electronic repair, it's possible to DIY repair.
Could also be an antenna mismatch or fault.

I need to get a manual for Ht1000 and ex500.

Unable to locate a PDF file for the EX500 or HT1000 online, however, here are the part numbers you can order by HKLN4118A for EX500 and 6881079C50 for HT1000.

Best regards.

Bad transmission

Troubleshooting ideas:
1) Try the radio without the remote speaker mic (RSM) attached. Do you still have the same issue?
2) Check the RSM's mic area for dirt/debris or something covering the hole. It is usually in the lower corner of the grill area of the mic.
3) Try someone else's RSM on your radio and see if the problem is still there.
4) Check your battery. An old or defective battery will cause transmit issues. Try a known-good battery from another radio to see.
5) If all of the above are addressed and you still have an issue, you may be experiencing low transmit power, and your radio would need to be serviced.

It sounds like the radio may be in service or programming mode. Try turning it off, remove the battery, and reconnect the battery. Let me know if that solves the problem or not.
