Check your Qt filter. Set it to the off position (the minus symbol) on both radios. Once you have your Frequency, Interference Code Eliminator and Qt Filter set identical, the radios should communicate. If not, you have a radio with a problem. Or a bad battery. (Bad batteries can also cause some user problems, such as no transmit or intermittent transmit.)

Here is a link to the user's guide, the Qt filter is on page 21: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T55xx.pdf

Another test of the radios would be to put both Codes to zero and see if you can communicate without the code turned on.

We purchased the midland two way radio, the problem is the channel we are on we only can hear every one in our group, but can not communicate if they are on their radio. How can we get on the same...


You should ask the others what channals they are on if you cant for whatever reason then scan for a frequincy that has others on it by hitting the scan butten and hitting the channal up or channal down butten, if you can tthen talk on each channal in order and wait 10 seconds for a reply then go to another channal and try agean, im not sure if you can hear others unless they have the same brand radio's but i could be wrong, i am also not sure if the scan butten will work so after it goes through all of the channals 2 times then try the other suggestion. you also want to make sure you have good batteries in when you try.

Hope this helps

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

Will a Motorola TalkAbout T5320 transmit to a Motorola TalkAbout T5530?


Hello Blindmaster,

Check the Continuous Tone Coded Squelch (CTCSS) settings on all the radios. (Note that some manufacturers refer to this feature as a “Privacy Code” or “Quiet Code.” The actual name of the feature may vary.) This feature encodes a low-frequency signal on your radio transmission. This signal is below the range of human hearing but can be detected by other radios. When the CTCSS feature is active your radio will ignore any signal that it receives that does not have the proper tone encoded on it.

In order for these radios to communicate, all of the radios need to be on the same channel and have the same CTCSS code programmed or the CTCSS feature must be disabled.

I suspect that CTCSS is activated on your T5530s but is not enabled on your T5320. This would result in the situation you describe.

Also take note that when using different brands / models of radios to communicate with one another that the CTCSS code numbering scheme may not necessarily be the same from radio to radio. For instance, CTCSS code “4” on the Motorola TalkAbout series actually corresponds to code “A” on the Motorola Sport models.

Best Regards,

Agent Ken
