    Hi,

    Pls, what specific model is your Technika 2-way radio?
    It would also be of help if you can post where (what location) were they bought from and/or where they are being used.

    Looking forward to your reply/post.

Basic Instructions for Technika Model TA-13

On this model there are 7 buttons:
Left to Right these are:

PTT, Push to talk on lh side as screen faces you.
Power/Menu
Scan
Call
Down
Up
Torch Light (on rh side)

Assuming you have used the power button to turn on the radio, the default channel after installing the batteries is 1 or else the last channel to be used.

Press the power/menu button once-briefly, (the current channel will flash for about 10 seconds.) Then use the Up and Down arrows to change channel. Wait for the remaining few seconds and the radio will return to normal operation.

Press the menu button twice, the letter H or L will appear and can be altered by the Up and Down keys to change the power level of the radio. I think this is transmit power which may help you avoid infuriating local taxi companies. Switch back to High power when you're about to go out for the night and need a ride.

Press the menu button three times. This will turn off Squelch control and make a terrible din. Not terribly useful unless you want to pick up a really weak signal (or find out where the taxi driver has taken your neighbour.)

An easy way of finding a channel is to press and hold the Scan button and then the device will rotate through the available channels looking for a signal. When someone transmits, the scan will pause and you can capture it by pressing the PTT button for a second or two. I have found this helpful in pairing my radios with other sets, or picking out channels that work with friend's radios.

Finally, Volume control is really simple, just up and down when not in any other mode.

I had the instructions, which I think included a mention of all available channels I'll scan and post them if ever I find them. hope this part helps though.

Hi again,

If my understanding is right, the Technika TA-13 is an European PMR446 system. It is the European version of the USA's Family Radio Service (FRS). It is basically designed:
1. for unregulated use of anybody;
2. 8 channels, 500mWatts power, 446MHz operating frequency;
3. Ch8 is normally the general calling channel;
4. Pressing the up/down would change the channel;
5. the display on both radios must be identical (including the small figures) for them to pair up;
6. the "S" normally means Scan channels, the "C" would be clear or cancel, PTT (press to transmit) is on the left side, some versions have the power switch together with the volume control, others have a soft switch at the front.

Sorry about the instruction manual, no luck getting a downloadable copy.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Copy your post changing channels -
    Select channel of your choice,
    press PTT
    should stay there till you change.
    if you power off, it will go back to 8 soon as you power up again,
    if "Scan" is enabled, it will move among the different channels looking for a busy channel (which would be the 1 in your area).
    to disable "Scan", press the "S" button till an icon in the display disappear.

    Cheers

    Sorry....in your version, that should read as -
    "if you power off, it will go back to 1 soon as you power up again,"

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:

One radio clicks when the other is mic


Scanning is interrupted when you key the other unit's mike. For example, if the non-scanning unit is set to channel 13 and keyed scanning will stop at channel 13 on the other unit to establish communication between the two.

To change the channel on the Hello Kitty KT2022 Walkie-Talkie:
-Tap the power button. The channel will blink.
-Use up/down arrows.
-Tap the power button again to save the channel selection.

TECHNIKA TA717 I need user manual I lost my user manual and I forgot how my walkie talkie operate (channel and sub-channel change, volume set, calling tone set)


Tesco does not offer replacement manuals via their web site, so I suggest that you contact them directly by following this link:

http://direct.tesco.com/help/contactus.aspx

They should be able to provide a copy of the needed manual.

Can't change channel of a Motorola Visar Handie-Talkie FM Radio Model: H05RDD9AA4DN It seems that this radio operates in only one channel and I need to be able to chanmge channels. However everything else...


The Visar has a channel lock feature. If you hold down the two channel buttons at the same time, it will do one of two things depending on the settings. Either the channel will lock, or the channel numbers in the LCD will flip.
If you press the channel button and the "popples" "pop" (for lack of a better word) then the channel selection buttons re most likely OK. To fix it you just press both channel buttons at the same time for about 5 seconds. It will beep and you should be able to change the channels. If not, then it needs to be repaired.
