Re: motorola gm300


If you are referring to the receive audio, possibly the reason it is soft/weak are:
1. defective internal speaker - try using an external speaker;
2. volume control - try rotating back & forth till you get satisfactory level. In some cases, you may need to clean the inside of the volume control with an electronic contact cleaner. At worst is that it has to be replaced;
3. defective amplifier - between the volume control and the speaker is the audio amplifier. This is a single op-amp IC U501 (TDA1519A); and/or
4. muting - which is a bit complicated. This is triggered either by the squelch or by the CTCSS tone decoder. You may have partial/false muting. You need to check Q501 (MMBT3904) and its associated circuitry.

Other than #1, most fix would require opening the unit and familiarity with electronic circuitry & components, use of a DVM and soldering iron. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified communication technician.

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.

Programming software for motorola GM300

Software from Motorola costs money. Yes, it is DOS based because this is an old radio. You buy the software, a RIB (radio interface box) and then a cable to plug into the radio. You must have a computer that has a serial port. Older, slow computers work best. Or you can call around for a radio shop that has this capabilty, avoiding all the costs and assuring you are programmed onto legal frequencies in your area. This avoids possible fines from the FCC.

2 way radios

Your radio with model number M33GMC09C2AA is a GM300 made for Central Asia, Eastern Europe and Turkey. It is VHF 25 watt with 12.5 channel spacing. It will do frequencies between 146-174 MHz. It should be able to be "read out" by a Motorola dealer. If it has been in a boat, it most likely is programmed with Marine frequencies. If you have another marine radio you may be able to determine the frequency by process of elimination.

The wiring kit for power is readily available for around $18 ea. If your boat has a marine VHF antenna onboard, you will be able to attach the antenna to this radio. It takes a mini-PL connector.

Motorola GM300 Question

Check your antenna connections and coax for loose connections or damage. Also check your hand mic. See if the problem disappears if you turn on the radio without the mic attached. The two most common problems with a mobile radio are antenna and mic problems.

If you feel these are in order, it would be wise to have a tech look at the radio.
