Are you certain you are near a GMRS repeater in your area? If you have your radios set for the GMRS repeater channels the radios will not talk to one another unless you are in close proximity of a GMRS repeater. To talk radio-to-radio you would need to set your radio to one of the simplex frequencies available in the radio.

If you know you are close to a GMRS repeater, you might double check the Tx and Rx frequencies of the repeater to be certain they match the settings in your radio. Also, you will need to be certain your interference code is set to zero (the off position) to be used with the repeater. I didn't read up on the T7200, but if it has a Qt filter, set it to zero also.

I bought walkie talkies with 56 km radius and yet we are lucky to reach each other after approx. 1 mile,any idea why we don't get the range


You do not mention the particular model of Motorola, so this answer will be generic in nature. Some Motorola TalkAbout radios have been factory programmed with a few GMRS repeater frequencies. These channels require the use of a repeater tower, which will 'repeat' what you say over a greater distance. It is possible you have this type of radio. Check your user guide, and then set your radio to the appropriate channel for the repeater in your area.

Radio-to-radio without the use of a repeater you can expect up to 2 miles line-of-sight out of most handheld radios. This distance is reduced by obstacles such as buildings, trees, etc. inbetween the radios. It can also be reduced if you do not hold the antenna of the radio perpendicular to the ground.

Best regards.

I want to use a Motorola sport 7 radio with a Motorola T6550. What channel and code do I use?


  • Hi, the first 7 channels on both radios are standard FRS and will work together. Make sure no codes are on or they won't work until adjusted the same.

  • Frequencies for not radios according to channel

  1. 462.5625
  2. 462.5875
  3. 462.6125
  4. 462.6375
  5. 462.6625
  6. 462.6875
  7. 462.7125

  • The A,B,C channels on your sport 7 are GMRS repeater frequencies

  • A 462.5750 = Channel #16 on T - 6550
  • B 462.6250 = Channel #18 on T - 6550
  • C 462.6750 = Channel 20 on T- 6550

Hope this helps.

Can you use 2 different talkabouts fr50 and t5420 with each other? I have just one of each unfortunately.


  • Yes they will both talk together on the same channels just fine. Most of the more recent Talk About Radios are FRS/GMRS with 22 channels. These radios are FRS only with out the GMRS. The FRS are the first 14 channels in most talk about's as are your radios.

Is there a way to change the frequency of a specific channel?


FRS & GMRS frequencies have been preset by the governing bodies where these radios are licensed for use. They consist of Ch 1 - 14 for FRS or Family Radios Service (the new "CB" radio) and Ch 15 - 22 for GMRS or General Mobile radio Service. GMRS frequencies may be repeated 5 Mhz higher - the repeater input of channel 22 (462.750 Mhz) may be heard if close to the transmitter on Ch 22, but if a repeater has been set up to repeat signals in range on Ch 22, they would also be heard on 467.750 Mhz. The repeater will likely have one or more of the following: a high vantage point such as a hill or mountain top, may increased output power of up to 50 watts, or have an antenna with gain properties. Any one or combination of any of these benefits, will result in a significantly increased area of coverage.

FRS Frequencies Channel Frequency in MHz 1 462.5625 2 462.5875 3 462.6125 4 462.6375 5 462.6625 6 462.6875 7 462.7125 8 467.5625 9 467.5875 10 467.6125 11 467.6375 12 467.6625 13 467.6875 14 467.7125 15 462.550 16 462.575 17 462.600 18 462.625 19 462.650 20* 462.675* 21 462.700 22 462.725

It is important to note that only Ch 1 - 14 may be used without a license. Transmitting on any of the GMRS frequencies (Ch 15 - 22) shown in red in the chart above, requires an FCC license if used in the U.S.A. Other countries may or may not have laws for licensing the use of any or all these frequencies, so check before transmitting. Modifying an FRS / GMRS radio is a violation of FCC rules and if caught; can result in fines, prison or both.

If you'd like to be able to tune actual frequencies - and not be limited to specific channels, you ought to look into amateur ("ham") radio. While not in the FRS or GMRS bands, there are literally hundreds of thousands of frequencies to use once licensed. The ARRL (American Radio Relay League) has a great deal of info about ham radio.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks!

Frequency range


The T5720 has
- 7 GMRS/FRS 1 watt Channels
- 7 FRS 1/2 watt Channels
- 8 GMRS 1 watt Channels
All of these frequencies are between 462-467 MHz. There is a list of the specific frequencies assigned to each channel on page 19 of the user guide. Here is a link http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf

How to get a Talkabout T5720 to communicate with a


The frequency range and operatngmode of the two radios are compatible. To get the Radius operating on a GMRS channel you'll need a Motorola programming cable and software, OR a trip to a Motorola dealer for frequency programming. Considering the cost involved, the 2-watt output of the Radius, and the 1-watt output of the Talkabout, you would be better off performance and cost wise buying a pair of 5-watt GMRS portables.

WHICH CHANNELS WILL GIVE THE USER THE MOST RANGE ON A MOTOROLA TALKABOUT


There is a good explanation at http://www.twowayradioforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=762

Your repeater channels, when activated will give you the most range. These 8 channels follow the basic 22 channels and have an R in front of the channel number. As the article at the link above says, you need a license and permission to use the repeater, if one is available in your area.

i do not have any experience with that model, however, i tried a cheap set a short while back, i noticed that if i tried to talk to the other portable while holding it, it would not work. i set the portable down and walked away from it, and it started to work.
maybe?

Hi,

Yes, but depends on the configuration/setup and programming/frequency assignation of the MTS2000.

To my knowledge, the UHF version of the Motorola MTS2000 are designed to operate either in the 403~470Mhz or the 450~512 or 520MHz band.

On the other hand, Motorola TalkAbout Radio are design limited to operate in the FRS band which is 462.5625~462.7250MHZ and/or the GMRS band which is 462.550~467.725.

So technically, both the MTS2000 and the FRS/GMRS share some frequencies. What needs to be done is to re-program the frequency allocation of the MTS2000 into its channels to match the TalkAbouts frequencies. The other way around is not possible. TalkAbouts frequency assignments can not be reprogrammed/changed. Below are typical TalkAbout Channels/Frequencies.de11c4e.jpg

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

Good luck and kind regards.
