Question about Midland Two Way Radio
Hi I am not sure if it is something that I am doing wrong but I cannot use my two way radios as when I push (and hold) the PTT button the TX only appears on the screen for a second before cutting out. The most you can hear is half a word. The problem exists for both sets. Are they faulty or do I have a setting incorrect?
I am sure the OP isn't likely monitoring this, but just in case anyone else needs it... It's a power problem. Try charging the batteries, even though they look like they're fully charged -- or replace with 4@AA batteries.
This only seems to happen on the GMRS channels -- not the FRS ones. The radios come default to transmit at high power (the full 5 watts) on the GMRS channels, but only 0.5 watts on FRS. If you go to settings and change the power on that particular channel you're trying to medium or low, you'd likely find it works with the charge you had problems with.
Recharging or changing to 4@AA batts should get you back up to continuous TX on those high-powered channels.
