Intercom/baby moniter - buzz/hum

Recent purchase - replaced, same problem - loud buzz or hum on transmit
Could never use as baby monitor - buzz all day would drive you nuts.
Bad product? - need filter? - problem with my house wireing?
sounds like an old tube type amp. with a bad ground. No problem with any other electronics in the house

    Baby monitor hum is intolerable, you can turn the volume down but it kind of defeats the purpose of the baby monitor. No pwerlines or transformers in the area, I'm wondering if another home electronic is interfering, my wireless router for example.

Ok do you live within 1km of a sub station. As these produce a high emf output and can affect radio equipment in a similar way???

How to linked the Uniden baby monitor BW3101 to skype?

Why not just plug microphone into the computer's mic jack, and use it to listen to the baby?

Or, put the microphone near the baby monitor's speaker & listen that way.

Not being familiar with this particular monitor, I hesitate to provide direct-connect solution.

How do i make the walkietalkie transmit continuously

Most two-way radios will not transmit continuously. They have built-in time-out-timers to protect the reference oscillator/power amplifier. Most timeout timers will kick in after 60-120 seconds.
A few FRS radios were designed with a baby monitor feature. This would be the exception to the above statement.

Best regards.

This unit says it is voice activated. When it is not in use, is it actually off, or is it still using battery power? I am hoping to be able to use this to monitor an invalid in another part of the house....

The units are still drawing power for their receiver sections and voice-activated relay. They will work as a monitor, but your battery life will be considerably less that it would be with a baby monitor or an intercom that's designed for the monitoring function.

Motorola t5720 one buzzes and you can't hear transmission. It transmits to its partner just fine. It just won't receive transmission form its partner, just a loud buzz

Try trading the batteries between the units and see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, replace the battery pack. If the problem persists, you have a defect radio, which needs replaced.

Best regards.

Interference in our wireless intercom

Wireless routers operate on 2.4GHz frequency. It's very possible that your intercom is in the same frequency range causing inerference. Try and find the frequency your intercoms operate on. If you can't find it on the unit, search the internet for the name brand and maybe you will find the info. If this is that case, (as I suspect it is), the only alternative I can suggest is to change your intercoms. Be sure to check the frequency of the new intercoms before purchasing. Anything but 2.4GHZ should work fine.

Motorola Talkabout 5700, 60 second timeout?

The 60 second timeout is a feature which is necessary to keep from burning up the final amplifier in the unit. It keeps the user from ruining their radio. Most radios, including business radios have this feature. Continually holding down the PTT will also run the battery down very quickly.

It would be best to try getting a regular baby monitor.
