I have a midland 2 way radio trying to transmit and receive without static


If a handheld radios check your battery and/or antenna. Trade with a known good unit to see if the problem is solved with either. A poor battery can often cause static.

If a mobile radio, check your antenna connections and your antenna and coil. This could be a sign of a poor antenna or antenna set-up.

Best regards.

One walkie talkie will send but not receive


Check your programming, specifically the private line (PL code) settings. This is one problem which can cause the problem you are describing.

Trying to get our Motorola (yellow/ black) to communicate with Midland two way radios. They Midland will receive messages from Motorola, but they can not send to it Motorola.


Most likely your CTCSS tone codes are not turned on on the Midland radios. The CTCSS codes are also known as "Privacy Codes" or similar.
They will be from 1 to 38. Your Midland manual will tell how to set the codes on the radios. The Motorolas usually show the selected tone code below the channel number.
Alternately, you may be able to turn off the tone code on the Motorola radio(s) by setting it to "0" or "off". Then you will not need codes turned on on any of your radios and they should all communicate fine.

Receivers complain about squeeling noise from my midland 1001z when I transmit. Is this an RF Gain setting problem?


I had the same (squealing) problem on transmit with the Midland 1001Z when I used it indoors as a base unit. The problem was my power supply: it broke into oscillation when drawing more than 150 mA at 13.8V. The 1001Z draws about 150 mA on Receive, and much more (but only about 900 mA) on Transmit. If using the 1001Z as a base unit, I suggest you power it with a fully-charged car battery indoors, or test your power supply to check if it can't supply the required 1 Amp, approx., on Transmit. It's a GREAT radio, just give it a good power supply. My power supply was defective out of the box, but now I have a good one and get great reports on signal strength and audio quality. Remarkable, for the low price and 3 year warranty. Good luck!

Receveing problem


Check to see you have the interference eliminator (aka tone code, PL, private line, CTCSS) programmed correctly to match the other units you are talking with.

Need to make sure programmed


Program the Midland 74-109 Weather Radio
a) Turn unit on. Extend the antenna. Adjust volume up slowly; Do you hear anything? If not, try replacing the 9 volt battery with a fresh one, in the accessible battery compartment underneath the unit. Repeat above steps.
b) If no sound is heard, turn unit over and look for "WEATHER" slide switch on bottom. With unit on & volume adjusted to comfortable hearing level, slowly slide switch down (or up) through various frequencies [1)162.550, 2) 162.400, 3) 162.475, 4) 162.425, 5) 162.450, 6) 162.500, 7) 162.525] until voice transmissions are heard. This should be the closest National Weather Service (NWS) broadcast for your area. Check the NWS website at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrbro.htm for your state, click on the state name, and look for the site name or site location nearest you. The frequency for that site should be the strongest, and appropriate for your area.
c) You can set the alert tone, for special weather alert broadcasts, on the bottom of the unit on the slide switch marked "ALERT". Set the switch to the desired type of alert: 1) LED [LED on top of unit (marked ALERT) lights up when alert is broadcast-no siren tone/alarm is heard] 2) LED & ALARM [LED lights up and alarm/ siren tone is heard] 3) VOICE [LED on top of unit lights up and voice broadcast is heard, only; no siren tone/alarm is heard].
d) Be sure to press the "ALERT" button on top of the unit and leave the volume at a comfortable listening level to hear weather alerts for your area (Alert LED on top of unit lights up to show Alert function is active). You can test the present volume level by pressing the "TEST" button. Be sure to press the "ALERT" button again after listening to the volume level to re-set the Alert function. You can listen to weather broadcasts anytime, by pressing the "WEATHER" button. After listening, be sure to re-press the "ALERT" button to reset the Alert function.
e) 9 volt battery life should last about 6 to 7 months, depending on how much unit is used an number of alerts received. Replace battery every 6 months, or when you replace your smoke alarm battery, or at beginning and end of daylight savings time. A 12 volt AC adapter to replace the battery, can be used. One should have been supplied with unit. If not, a replacement can be found at Radio Shack.
f) This should complete your Midland Weather Alert Radio Model 74-109 programming.

Uniden hr2510 10 meter lights up, won't transmit or receive


Have you tried a different michrophone. If you have then the radio will have either a cold solder joint on the main board or a transister has gone bad. The unit will require service at a local radio shop or send to Uniden Service center.
