Hi,

Yes, but depends on the configuration/setup and programming/frequency assignation of the MTS2000.

To my knowledge, the UHF version of the Motorola MTS2000 are designed to operate either in the 403~470Mhz or the 450~512 or 520MHz band.

On the other hand, Motorola TalkAbout Radio are design limited to operate in the FRS band which is 462.5625~462.7250MHZ and/or the GMRS band which is 462.550~467.725.

So technically, both the MTS2000 and the FRS/GMRS share some frequencies. What needs to be done is to re-program the frequency allocation of the MTS2000 into its channels to match the TalkAbouts frequencies. The other way around is not possible. TalkAbouts frequency assignments can not be reprogrammed/changed. Below are typical TalkAbout Channels/Frequencies.communications - de11c4e.jpg

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

Good luck and kind regards.

How do you transmit from a cb radio to a talkabout fr60 and vice versa


CB radios and TalkAbout FR60 radios will not communicate together. CBs are 26-27.5 MHz and TalkAbout radios operate on FRS and GMRS frequencies between 462-467 MHz.

Best regards.

Will talkabout 250 communicate with cb


No. Your Talkabout T250 operates on FM UHF frequencies between 460-470 MHz. The CB operates on 40 frequencies between 26-27 MHz.

Issues with Motorola TalkAbout T5900 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio. Do they need FCC programing & licensing to operate? Because I can not get the to communicate with each other!


Yes they do.The thing about the talkabout is that they work according to the network area they are connected to and the number of the talkabout they are also connected to.So all you need do now is to take the talkabout to motorola shop so that they can confrigure it for you.

How to get a Talkabout T5720 to communicate with a


The frequency range and operatngmode of the two radios are compatible. To get the Radius operating on a GMRS channel you'll need a Motorola programming cable and software, OR a trip to a Motorola dealer for frequency programming. Considering the cost involved, the 2-watt output of the Radius, and the 1-watt output of the Talkabout, you would be better off performance and cost wise buying a pair of 5-watt GMRS portables.

I recieved a talkabout 250 and i have no clue how to use it please help


You would need two or more radios to be able to communicate with others. Then you simply press the push-to-talk (PTT) button when you want to talk (transmit) and release it so others can reply (receive). The radios must be set to the same settings to be able to communicate.

Talkabouts not communicating


What you have described is typical of the radios not being on the same frequency and/or code. If you know how to put your radios in programming mode, set all the frequencies and codes to the same number, then they will work together. If you still have the owners manual it will describe this process. Usually with a TalkAbout radio it consists of holding in the PTT while turning the radio on.
As you are probably aware, the radio will have approx. 14 frequencies installed. You can usually select these easily from the front panel. The second number you see in the corner of the screen when you turn on the radio is the "code". This is an interference eliminator. All of your radios need to be set to the same code to work correctly together. If you find one or more of your radios does not have "code", simply set those that have "code" to zero.

Motorola Talkabout T5720


Hello kenyond,

The range that you can expect to see when using two-way radios is very dependent on local conditions. These radios are very line-of-sight dependent. Obstructions like mountains, hills, tall buildings, thick vegetation, and using the radio in a shielded environment such as inside of an automobile can block your line of sight and limit your effective communications range.

That “maximum 5 mile” advertised range is probably only practical in a situation where the user of one of the radios has some significant elevation (such as being on top of a tall hill) and therefore has increased line of sight. When communicating over relatively level ground that is clear of obstructions, you can probably expect a reliable communications range of about a mile.

Best Regards,

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
