Midland GXT550VP4 communication problems

I received a set of 2-way radios and upon charging them and using them, I got a lot of static from one of the units when I tried to talk into it. i also received the same problem when someone tried to talk to the radio. when i grabbed another radio (different type completely) i had, i was able to communicate fine with one of the 550's radios but the other gave static still. I'm thinking that there might be something wrong with the speakers in one of the units.

Did you use the sub-codes? Where they tested indoors or out?

I have 2 Midland GTX1000 radios and both of them won't transmit. You hit the Transmit button, the TX will appear and then drop a second later.


Use the owners manual & check your set up. Problem still present, replace battery. May the force be with you.

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.

Sometimes a lot of static can be an indication of a bad or poorly charged battery. To check for this trade batteries with your known good radio and see if it solves the problem.

Midland LXT410; one of the units makes a continuous noise when receiving if the volume is turned up louder than 3. It doesn't matter how close or far apart the two units are. We hadn't noticed...


It sounds like a damaged or dirty volume control. I have seen controls where the element inside the control snaps and this sounds like what has happened to your radio. You did not say if the squelch control was set open or closed. If what you are hearing is loud static, I would adjust the squelch control on the radio to see if it stops.

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.

I purchased a Midland 2 way radio for use in a small library. The series is LXT 110. The problem we are having is with a lot of static and other voices coming in. We have change the channels several times...


This model radio does not have Privacy codes to filter your communications,you should change them for a model with this feature. A radio with this feature you have to choose the channel first then the privacy code in both radios or in all radios that want to communicate with, if any radio that is in the same channel but with a diferent privacy code, will not be heard

GALAXY 88 HIGHT STATIC IN THE RECEIVE ..


Hi,

If the antenna for the other properly operating radio is used with the radio with the noise and you are getting the static then we can assume it is the radio. If you hear signals with the static, that is, it does receive communications at the same time, there may be a problem with the noise reduction circuitry, or a defective component(s) in the receiver. Without knowing your experience I would suggest taking to a radio shop.

Keewood Protalk 2 way radio xls receives , but doesn't transmit


Hello jf1111,

It could be a low battery. Does the screen go completely blank when you attempt to transmit? Two way radios draw a lot more power when transmitting then when receiving so a low battery might cause the radio to cut out when you press the Push-to-Talk and then the radios might appear to turn back on when you release the PTT. If this behavior persists even after charging the battery then the battery or charger (or both) might be defective.

If the battery isn't the issue then the radio could be programmed incorrectly. Does the problem occur on all channels or just one? The Kenwood ProTalk requires dealer programming with a software kit to set the frequencies for each channel. A channel that is programmed for an out of bounds frequencies would generate an error when the PTT is pressed. You might need to have the programming checked out by your local Kenwood Two-Way radio shop.

Best Regards,
Ken

Motorola T5725 won't work


I have T5720s - both have the same settings (channel 1), both are charged, but they won't communicate. They beep when you push the "talk" button, but you don't hear anything on the second radio.

Any ideas?
Thanks!
