Re: muting the sound

Transmitting a Talk Confirmation Tone
You can set your radio to transmit a unique tone when you finish transmitting. It is
like saying Roger or Over to let others know you are finished talking.
• To turn talk confirmation on, press and hold (+)while you turn the radio on. When
you release after transmitting, your confirmation tone transmits and displays.
• To turn talk confirmation off, turn your radio off and then back on while pressing
and holding (+).

Re: muting the sound


The sound produced by a Motorola radio when the mike is keyed refers to the "Transmitting Call Tone" which is another feature other than the "Interference Eliminator" or the "Roger Beep" feature.

On most Motorola GMRS/FRS TalkAbout radios, setting the "Call Tone" to 0 disables the feature. This is done with the radio ON by pressing on the "Menu" button 3 times which will result in the display showing the current Call Tone setting (flashing) and the letters CA; pressing on the <- or +> buttons will change selection (you will also hear the different Tones), select 0 (it may be up to 5 or 10 depending on the version). Press on the "Menu" or "PTT" button to set, save and exit.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Turn the radio off. Press the "+" button when you turn the radio on, it will disable/enable the confirmation beep.

Try this. To get rid of the Talk Confirmation Tone push your menu button until you see the .)))) icon appear in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Now to remove the sound push the minus button ( beside the menu button) "off "should now appear in the center of the screen. To turn the tone back on push the + button and "on" should appear on the center of the screen.

Very vague question. If you have the user manual, try looking up how to adjust the "mute" or "squelch" setting.

No sounds output heard,,,same as in mute status,,how to solve it?

Be sure the CTSS tones are either set to the same value as the transmitter, or you have it set for "carrier squelch".

Cobra microtalk Cxt135C one radio seems to be muted, there is no sound coming from it at all -

Check to see if you have "tone squelch" or CTCSS enabled. It will only receive transmissions from stations that are transmitting the tone your radio has selected.

Online manual for GE 35810GC3


Have you tried the GE website?

otherwise, it will be very difficult to obtain.

Though GE is a good brand name, this doesn't apply to these little radios, which are mass produced in China, and therefore the manual would be very hard to understand anyway.

Try GE website before googling user mamual for GE 35810GC3 radio.

Good luck and good hunting.

The beeping sound when you key the button is called the roger beep. To turn it off, with the radio off, press and hold the "up" button and turn on the radio. More information about all the settings is in the user manual, available HERE.

The 'mute' button is on the radio and I can't get it off. The model of the radio is Motorola XTR446. Thanks

Here is a link to the user guide:

The XTR446 does not have "mute". But what you might be experiencing is a problem with the radios matching one another completely, such as the "interference code" being set differently among the radios. Check your frequency and code to see that they match the other radios exactly. Also, check your radio's mic hole for dust, dirt or debris. This can mute/muffle transmissions.

If this does not solve the problem, you may have a radio in need of repair.

Best regards.

Roger beep

I'm pretty sure you can't mute it, but I think you can change it in the settings.
