Question about Midland Two Way Radio

Midland GXT 950 two way. TX problem

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.

Hi Robin

looks like you may have taken out the audio amp in the radio it it usually not hard to replace if you have some soldering skills. I bet you don't have any TX audio either. These little radios do a double duty with the audio ic. They are used to rx and tx audio so it does both duties when the radio is on. These are great radios to use and work on if you are willing to try and crack the hood.

Is the midland gxt 650 compatable with the g12


All type-accepted GMRS radios operate on the same frequencies and use the same type of transmissions. Channel numbers are the same on most models, but check the channel/frequency chart in the radio's operating manual to be sure.

If you click on the above it takes you through to the manual for your radio.

If you go to p6 NOAA weather (wx) band icon is what you are asking about.If this is showing it indicates the weather band mode.

Hope it helps!
