Question about Uniden GMR1588-2CK (2 Pack) (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio

2 Answers

They are not working

I am trying to communicate with someone who is only 3 miles away but neither of us are receiving any calls. We are both on the same channel, same privacy code, and we are not on scramble. What could be the problem?

A lot of things affect the usable range. The way most manufactures test their products is the best possible conditions. That would be completely clear “line of sight” nothing in between the radios and fresh batteries.

According to the manual best bet would be on channels 15 through 22 and with power boost button you COULD get up to 15 miles, but I would think you should be able to get 3 miles on all channels (assuming that you are not inside buildings).

I would try it without using security codes at all.

Do the radios communicate at closer range?

Can these discovery Expedition two way radios work when you are just three minutes away


They have a maximum range of 3 miles (and this will vary depending on surrounding terrain. They will communicate with each other even if they are side by side, so there is no MINIMUM range to worry about. In a city, I would suggest the maximum range would be more like 1 mile consistently, and 3 miles, possible more, on prairie.

5 tips to communicating from home


5 tips to communicate better from homeEven when you've got the right tools and ways to meet, communicating with co-workers from home is still different from working in the office. Use these five tips to improve how you communicate with co-workers from home.
1. Make appointments You set aside time to meet with someone in person, so why not make appointments for important telephone calls? By booking a specific time, you can be assured that your co-worker will be prepared and more focused on the conversation. Like you, they may have done some prep work beforehand to make the call more productive.
2. Stay focused in phone conferencesIt's easy to stray when meetings get long, but keep multitasking to a minimum during phone conferences. The other party can almost certainly hear that keyboard clicking while you respond to someone else's e-mail.
3. Attend weekly staff meetingsIf you work at home full-time, try to attend at least one weekly meeting to keep in touch with others.
4. Stay online as much as possibleIf you're not there, it's likely that people may think you're not working—even if you're working more than 40 hours a week. Responding quickly to e-mail will help remind people that you're still there and being productive.
5. Be assertive Don't always wait for people to contact you. Ask for information if you don't feel like you've received it.

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.)

One way communication is usually a routing issue. Make sure that you have two-way routing to and from the subnets that are trying to contact you... could also be the reason why you have the question mark on the buttons too.
