Finding lost charge cords, connectors, & adapters for 1$


Thrift Stores usually have bins full of all kinds of cords; chargers, connectors, adapters-you name it-and only a dollar each! I've found everything from expensive, top-of- the-line USB to USB cords to the oddball power cord to my old waffle iron. No matter how old or how new, common or uncommon, digging through the bins at your local thrift store saves not only money, but time and effort as well.

How many watts do midland walkie talkie xt20 have?


These are FRS/GMRS (Family Radio Service/ General Mobile Radio Service) radios. The legal power limit for FRS is 500 milliwatts - or 1/2 watt. GMRS on the other hand is limited to a much higher 50 watt level. The wattage you transmit determines if you need to have a GMRS license. Most GMRS radios are in the .5- 5 watt range however.

The likelihood of your XT20 being a 1/2 watt out on both FRS & GMRS is very good. For Midland (or anyone else for that matter) to produce a radio with a 1 watt output that can run on just 3 "AAA" batteries would be quite the feat! If Midland did do this, the radio's battery life would extremely short. To balance the needs of light weight and battery life, output power needs to be reduced.

Claims of 20 miles is crazy. If you had these radios on mountain tops 20 miles apart - with a clear line of sight between them - MAYBE - you could hear one on the other. This would need to be done under only the most ideal conditions. The actual distance you can expect to get out of a pair of any brand FRS radios in "real world" conditions (line of sight blocked by trees and buildings) is about a mile.

An FRS/GMRS radio limited to 1/2 watt output when used on a GMRS frequency that is close enough to access a GMRS repeater system could easily cover 20+ miles. The key here is having a license and access to the repeater. Repeater owners take a dim view of unlicensed users access their repeater.

Channels 1 thru 7 are FRS and GMRS. That is, if transmitting .5 watts, you can use it as FRS. If transmitting more than .5 watts, you will need a valid GMRS license.

Channels 8 - 14 are expressly for FRS. Only .5 watts transmit power is permitted.

Channels 15 - 22 are expressly for GMRS at any transmit power up to 50 watts. Even if transmitting .5 watts, you MUST have a valid GMRS license on these frequencies.

I know - more infor than you wanted and no vclear cut number for wattage - but there's no info on these radios on Midland's site or anywhere else that I could find. Good luck!

How do I program a Midland GXT760VP4


After installing and charging the battery pack (or installing alkaline batteries), turn on the radio by turning . Then press Menu once to set your Channel. Press Menu additional times to set other features. To set the channel to listen to Weather Radio, continue pressing Menu to the Weather Channel sub-menu (Channel 1 is 162.400 MHz). If you press and hold Menu for more than 5 seconds with the radio in GMRS mode, the radio will scan all 10 weather radio channels.

Midland has the manuals to many of their products here: http://www.midlandradio.com/Two-Way-Owner-Manual . The direct link to the manual is http://www.midlandradio.com/Resource_/OwnerManual/201/GXT760%20Owner%27s%20Manual%20.pdf .

Please let me know if there is a specific item you want to set up on the GXT760VP4.

Motorola SX700 battery drainage w/tactical mike


It is likely the mic set you are using is not made for the SX700 radio, and is drawing too much power from the radio. Some audio accessories draw more power than others. It is possible your mic set is intended for a professional model radio which would supply more power to the device. You should check with Motorola to see if they have a mic set similar to go with your SX700 radio. Here is a link to their online store: http://www.store.motorola.com/mot/en/US/adirect/motorola;jsessionid=130652F39955D9E9CA94908C45C73822.mot3?cmd=catDisplayStyle&entryPoint=adirect&catKey=601560&messageType=catDisplayStyle

I JUST PURCHASED THIS MONITOR THE HP PAVILLION F1703 FROM A THRIFT STORE FOR 10.00 IT TURNS ON ,YOU CAN SEE MY ICONS THEN IT TURNS OFF RIGHT AWAY. I DONT KNOW WHAT THIS CAN BE ? WHEN IT FIRST TURNS ON IT...


Hi,
This is a commom problem on this monitor and the fix is easy. Remove the back cover and look for the inverter board (This is the board that the 4 backlights connect to) On this board you will see 4 coils. Re-solder these coils to the board (Its usually just one of them that causes the problem but to be safe I re-solder all of them) Re assemble and the monitor should then work fine.
