I have a Bellsouth 2-way radio model #2290 and can't get them to communicate with each other. Can you help?

In addition to the Channel, we also call the Frequency, there are sub tones on each channel. You must have the channel and sub tone match in order to "hear" each other. I found a manual:

How do I find frequency?

This unit transmits on FRS/GMRS channels. Please see page 19 of the user manual available from here:

I have bellsouth 2231 communicators, the accessory package mentions model A174 ear bud Microphone accessory, is this product specific or would any ear/mic product work?

Most of these type devices use similar accessories. Your local RadioShack, BestBuy, or perhaps even WalMart may have an accessory that will work with the device.

Motorola mj270r no range

Handheld radios talking line-of-sight with no obstacles will communicate approx. 2 miles. When talking from inside a building to outside, you can expect 1/4 to 1/2 miles range. Holding the antenna perpendicular to the ground gives you the best range. Height and placement of the antenna determines range. If you were on a mountain you could talk many miles into the valley below. However, in real world applications, range is limited. It can even be limited by the body fluid of the person wearing the radio on their hip, or blocked somewhat by the metal of the automobile one is riding in.

Channels 18-22 are listed as GMRS channels and may have more power than 1-17. The FRS channels are limited to 1/2 watt. But don't be fooled wattage doesn't equal distance. Higher wattage may give you a little more distance, but mostly it will give you clarity in the fringe areas.

Here is a link to the user guide:

A link to Motorola's page about the radio:

And I see where they are quoting 27 miles*, and go on to say:
*How far can I expect my radios to communicate? The communication range quoted is calculated under optimum conditions, with an unobstructed line of sight. Actual range will vary depending on terrain and conditions, and is often less than the maximum possible. Your actual range will be limited by several factors including, but not limited to, terrain, weather conditions, electromagnetic interference and obstructions.

Unfortunately, we are seldom in idea conditions. Radio-to-radio is going to get you 1/4 mile to 2 miles in real conditions.

Best regards.

I can't find the manual, and I was wondering how far away you can talk on the BellSouth Walkie Talkies Model 2252?

The range of the BellSouth 2252 will depend on the frequency and the surrounding environment. If you get the FCC license and operate in the GMRS range, then the radios will have a maximum of a 2 mile range. The surroundings will matter: hills, buildings, etc. will shorten the range.

If you are using the FRS frequencies, your range will be significantly shorter (again depending on the surroundings). I'd guess no more than 1/2 mile line of sight.

I hope this helps.

(who uses another brands of two-way radios and the ones with a 5 mile GMRS range work over 1/2-3/4 of a mile depending on hills. The ones with a shorter range can't communicate with someone at the far end of the property. It's about 3/4 mile from the road to the back fence.)

Don't know range of unit

The manufacturer claims a 2-mile range for these radios, but that is just a pipe dream. These are low power line-of sight radios that are described by many as "toys." Effective range under most conditions is not much more than 100 yards.
