The 5 mile range is line of sight only. Buildings, rainy days, windy days trees, people, and anything else causes an interferance between your transmission.

Hi, how do I change frequencies so I can make the T5000 and our new CLS1410 work together

Sorry, the T5000 and CLS1410 have no frequencies in common. Here are links to the user guides for each model: See pgs 40-41 See page 20.

The T5000 is limited to FRS frequencies, and the CLS model is set up for consumer and business frequencies. Both are UHF, but that is the end of their similarities.

Best regards.

Hi i have the motorola talkabout t500 and they dont work once we get more than 2 blocks away from each other it said that they were good for 5 miles they are both on the same channel

The 5 mile range claimed by the manufacturer might be possible if you were transmitting between two hilltops, with nothing between them except a body of water. The FRS/GMRS frequencies are "line-of-sight," which means that anything directly between the transmitter and the receiver (buildings, trees, cars, even people) can block the signal. Even the so-called 30-mile GMRS sets have an actual effective range of only about 1/2 mile.

Looking for operational manual for talk about T500

We are unable to locate the specific manual for the T5000, however, here are links to the T4800 and T5100. One or both of these should be very similar to the T5000.

I hunt in a remote area. Will the t5000

If your farm radios are FM UHF radios, it is possible they could communicate if programmed to match one another. You would need to limit your wattage on the farm radios to 1/2 watt on the FRS (family radio service) channels, which are in the T5000.

Your T5000 will NOT match CB (citizen band radios).

What distance/range does the t5412 have

The 5 miles claimed by the manufacturer is possible only in a dream. GMRS radios operate in the UHF band, so signals are strictly line-of sight. In other words, if there's a building, a hill, or other solid obstruction between the transmit and receive locations, the signal will bounce off it and communication will not be possible. Trees, vehicles, etc. will also deflect signals and reduce the effective range of the radios, and even weather can effect the range. Unless you're standing at two edges of a lake, with nothing between you but water, I wouldn't expect more than a mile from them under any conditions on the GMRS frequencies. On FRS, or using low power on GMRS, probably 1/2 mile maximum.

Rx not working

You need to check the programming of your Frequency, interference Code eliminator and Qt filter, if any. All must match one another for the radios to communicate. You have posted under the T5000 heading, here is a link to the nearest numbered user guide.

T5000 has a range of up to 5 miles but....

5 miles is the range that can be expected in perfect conditions, basically if you were standing in a wide open field. Obstructions like geology, houses and trees will greatly reduce your range.

T 5000 (Talkabout Hand held Radios)

Hi Mark,

I understand your concern with the actual range of the Motorola T5000. Being UHF radios, they are severely limited by any obstruction in between, be it trees, buildings, hills, foliage, terrain and any others that would block "line of sight". Additionally due to the inherent design restrictions imposed on these radios, the FRS channels are limited to pushing out 0.5 watts making the GMRS channels better choice since the radio will be transmitting at 1 watt. To my knowledge, channels 8 - 14 are FRS only.

Possible things you can try to improve transmit distance are:
1. use AA Alkaline batteries instead of the rechargeable ones;
2. disable or minimize settings of interference eliminators, Quiet Talk, noise filters, coded squelch or CTCSS;
3. replace the stub antenna with a Larsen Quarter wave. You may need to install a BNC mount to accommodate the Larsen. Incidentally, this will also improve the receive range and not only the transmit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
