Re: Not able to communicate

First of all check if the channel on both the radios are the same. If its a year, then also check the batteries on the sets and then the antenneas. If still no result, I suggest you get it done thru a service center.

We recently purchased the MS350 radios and are trying to use them handfree with the headsets. We plugged in the headsets, turned on the radios, but are unable to communicated back and forth using the VOX...

The three things which come to mind are:
1) Is the headset the VOX headset intended for the radio model? Sometimes the rings on the plug do not match the internal points of contact if it is not the intended headset. Not all headsets are VOX capable.
2) Is the headset plugged in all the way. (You mentioned plugging in and then turning on. This is good. You must always have the radio turned off when plugging or unplugging an audio device.)
3) Try pressing the PTT on the headset cord one time before switching the dip switch to VOX. (Assuming you have a headset with the small box in the line.)

Check your VOX/ iVOX settings. You will need VOX for using an audio device.

Lastly, if you continue to have difficulties, contact Motorola at the 800# provided in the user guide. They should be able to assist you.

Best regards.

I cannot set QT filltering on..why?

Here are the instructions from the manual:

To transmit to a radio that has QT noise filtering turned on:

1. Select the same channel and Interference Eliminator Code as the other radio.

2. Press 'musical note' button to send a call tone. This allows your voice to pass through the QT

noise filter on the receiving radio.

3. Press the PTT and speak normally.

Note: If you skip step 2, the beginning of your message may not be heard on

the receiving radio.

For a 30-second period, starting after the last transmission, all transmissions
received on the selected channel and code will pass through the QT noise filter.

Also, your QT filtering will NOT work if you are in scan mode.

Best regards.

We have a set of 6 XTR446 about 2.5 years old. 3 of the handsets are (for no apparent reason) displaying the little handset icon permanently and not operating (either to receive or transmit). One of the...

In order to reset the radio, power on while pressing both volume buttons (+ and -) together with the PTT (speak) button, until you year a high-pitched tone.

But I have found that the "stuck on receive" problem is related to the battery voltage: non-rechargable AAA or incorrectly charged batteries can give 0.2-1.0V above the nominal voltage. Try to leave the radio on for a few hours or replace some of the four AAA batteries with slightly exhausted ones and see if that helps.

Seem to be working fine but no communication between the handsets. Bought used with no manual

The manual should be available on There are two settings on each radio that must match. One is the channel and the other is the ctcss or "tone". These settings allow multiple people on the same radio channel without having to listen to all of them. The numbers do not matter as long as the match each other. They are set via a menu or settings button on the radio.

My pair of t4508 handsets do not 'talk' to each other.

Check the programming of the frequency and interference code eliminator. Be certain they match one another exactly. Here is a link to the user's guide

Also, check the battery contacts on both the radio and the battery for corrosion or film. Clean with a pencil eraser if needed.

Interference using maxon pm100 2 way radio

Hello susannebrown. There is a problem with the base station or repeater station. If your mobiles can communicate ok, you have problem with the base, check the antenna & coax connections. #2 Swap out a mobile with the base & test operation. If you can do this & found the culprate care it to the repair shop(less cost). #3 Swap has no effect or you can't, you have a repeater problem. Sorry, call a repair shop.
