Question about BellSouth 2250BK (22 Channels) 2-Way Radio

3 Answers

Bell South 2250 one seems to be voice activated and other not voice activated.

I have a set of BellSouth 2250 walkie-talkies or two way radios. One seems to be voice activated and the other is not. I do not want them to be voice activated because then I have to hear everything and I only want to hear when someone wants to talk with me. Please can you tell me how to turn off the voice activated feature. The one with voice activated feature has VOX between the battery life symbol and the volume setting. The other has nothing between those two symbols.

    I lost my manual for my BellSouth 2260. How do you get it to scan? I hold down the scan button and it just beeps. I was wondering what the 2 digits along thh channel from 00 to 38 were for? I forget because I havn't used it for about 3 years. Does anyone know what the range is on this 1 or 2 mile?

To turn off sound activation press the menu button 3 times to enter VOX mode. The VOX icon should be flashing, then press the down button till the number of bars dissappear. Press the menu button to confirm the VOX off mode. You also can adjust the sensitivity of the VOX mode by how many bars are displayed, less bars equal less sensitivity. No bars and voice command is deactivated. Hope this helps.

I have 2 bellsouth 2250 walkie talkies and have set them both to the same channel and subchannel, but cannot get them to communicate. What am I doing wrong?

Nothing. You have already said channel, which is frequency and sub channel, which is called a lot of things. You are 99% ahead! My best guess: turn them Off and On. Then check the channel and subchannel again. One of the radios did not save the information or lock it into the memory. The On/Off cycle may save it and they will work! Let's cross our fingers. But do not hesitate to reprogram them as many as 3-5 times and look for a SAVE feature in the manual. Best of luck!

Try Google. Those radios were made for BellSouth by another company and the manuals should be available if you can find out what the company was.

Is Bell South walkie talkie compatiable with other

Some number their channels differently, but all FRS/GMRS radios operate in the same mode and will have at least some frequencies in common. Check the channel/frequency lists for both radios and you'll be able to talk to each other.
