SOURCE: Constant RX mode on Cobra Microtalk Walke Talke

Hello CleanRightCo,

Many two-way radios have a Monitor function that disables the squelch control. The squelch is what keeps the radios quiet when they are not receiving an incoming signal. However the squelch feature can also cause weak signals to cut out and not be understood, so the Monitor function provides a way to disable the squelch in those circumstances. It sounds like you have the Monitor enabled / squelch disabled on the units that you hear constant static.

For the Cobra MicroTalk 4100 it appears that you enable the monitor by holding down the Light/Max Range button for 5 seconds until the radio beeps twice. You may have activated this function inadvertently. To disable the monitor and re-enable squelch simply press the Light/Max Range button again or change channels.

If this doesn't fix the problem there may be a problem with the auto squelch function on the radios. Or the channel you are operating on may have a noise level that is above the radio's squelch level. You can try changing channels. Or another possible solution would be to activate the CTCSS (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System) on all the radios. This function will mute the radio's receiver unless a signal is received from another unit using he same CTCSS code. This should keep the units quiet regardless of the noise level on the channel. However all the radios MUST be set to the same CTCSS code or they will not be able to communicate with each other.

Best Regard

SOURCE: Constant RX mode on cobra microtalk PR3850WX

Sounds like the radio was subjected to electrostatic discharge. If you have your manual, and it describes a way to do a "master reset" on the radio, follow the instructions. This usually involves pushing down on one key while turning the radio on. Otherwise you have to find a licensed dealer for factory service, as there is no way to repair the radio yourself. The use of surface mount technology still confuses many Techs unless they have been to a company's two or three week seminars.

No, the radios should be silent (squelched) when not receiving a transmission. Appliances (computers, televisions, even refrigerators) can generate enough "hash" to break the squelch and give you that "rushing" noise. Make sure that the radios are at least 4 or 5 feet apart, and try moving them to different locations to clear up the problem.

SOURCE: one of my walkie talkie has an RX on the display

depending on what radio you have, they are programmed in different ways, rx means recieve signal

and tx means transmit signal, if you have a mode button, you will have to scroll through it until you

get to the menu that allows you to change the radio transmission. it looks like that radio is only

programmed to receive signals and not transmit. good luck!

My Uniden walkie talkie keeps saying L very time I push a button


You've set the keylock feature on your walkie talkie. From the Uniden manual...

KEYLOCK

ON/OFF Press and hold the call/lock key until the "L" appears. After 1 second, the LCD will return to the channel display. To exit Keylock on mode, press and hold call/lock again. Note: While in keylock on mode, it will still receive transmissions.

My uniden walkie talkie has the RX button stuck on the screen i can talk to the other person but it always makes a screeching noise


Hi Laura,

When you see the Rx sign on the screen, it indicates that someone else is transmitting (Tx) on the channel, this is also caused by "BOOF HEADS" who like doing nothing more than dropping carriers by holding down their PTT button during a conversation, something that happens a lot on CB and without a doubt on FRS radios.

There is no problem in your radio, it's Just someone else probably dropping a carrier as per above.

Not much can be done about this problem, No License, No Joy.

The fact you can hear the other person over the screach indicates to me that I am right, and your radio is fine.

I hope this clears up your query.

Warm Regards,
Peter

I HAVE UNIDEN TWO WAYS HOW DO WE TAKE THE RX OFF


  • You need to get your radio out of monitor mode. To do this just pres the "mon" button for two seconds. Monitor allows you to just listen on that frequency and also receives weaker than normal transmissions while in "monitor" mode as well.
