If the radios are working fine otherwise, don't worry about the monitor feature not creating white noise (static). If you are still having a problem with the radios, try setting the interference eliminator code to off (zero). And turn off any other special features to see if you can regain communications. Then slowly add the features back in as you need them. All radios must be identical in freq., code, and features.
You would be surprised how little people actually talk on CB radios these days. I went through similar struggles a few years ago. Unless you are in a major trucker area, the CB radio is basically silence.
Check out the weather channels (anything on the WX setting) to make sure that your radio is receiving frequencies correctly. If that doesn't work, then it is your box, but I bet that will work.
Are you certain you are near a GMRS repeater in your area? If you have your radios set for the GMRS repeater channels the radios will not talk to one another unless you are in close proximity of a GMRS repeater. To talk radio-to-radio you would need to set your radio to one of the simplex frequencies available in the radio.
If you know you are close to a GMRS repeater, you might double check the Tx and Rx frequencies of the repeater to be certain they match the settings in your radio. Also, you will need to be certain your interference code is set to zero (the off position) to be used with the repeater. I didn't read up on the T7200, but if it has a Qt filter, set it to zero also.
What is happening is your T6500 is set to ignore radios which do not match the same code. The fact your Cobras can hear the T6500 indicates they are set with their interference eliminator turned off (aka no code).
A similar occurance will happen if the Qt filter is set to anything but zero. The Qt filter is unique to Motorola. These features are beneficial when you are in a high radio traffic area and you want to block out hearing other people. But in your situation, you are mixing radios, and the easiest way to make them match is to turn off the special features (aka set them to zero).
The head set is stuck in Transmit. try shutting off the radio and then plug in the headset then turn on the radio. some radios can since the presence of accessories but the accessories must be connected before powering on the radio.
