Question about Motorola Talkabout FR60 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

FR60 intermittent transmission

The 2 pair will receive a Audiovox transmission, so they are receiving. If I turn them on they will transmit for a half second then stop. This brief transmission is received on any radio on the same frequency but cuts out. These radios belong to my cycling club so the manual has been lost, no surprise, so I can't set anything on Menu asides fron Channel, Sideband and Call Tones. Any ideas?

    I tested the batteries originally and they were OK but not "new". When I put in new batteries (after reading your advice) the radios worked great. Lesson learned? Remove batteries when not in use and put new ones in before use!

    Thank you, Ken!

Hello snorker,

It could be battery / power issue. Two-way radios draw much more power when transmitting then receiving. If the batteries are weak the radio might work perfectly fine on receive and then cut-out when you depress the Push-To-Talk.

Best Regards,
Ken

How do you transmit from a cb radio to a talkabout fr60 and vice versa


CB radios and TalkAbout FR60 radios will not communicate together. CBs are 26-27.5 MHz and TalkAbout radios operate on FRS and GMRS frequencies between 462-467 MHz.

Best regards.

Can transmit to other frs radios but cannot


Check the "code" (interference eliminator code) on the FR60 and set it to off or zero. It appears from your description the Cobras do not have "code" turned on. Refer to your user guide to find the instructions for turning off the code. (As of this date we have not found an FR60 manual posted online.)

Best regards.

One will not transmit


Need more information.
Do you know if either one:
1) turns on
2) receives (anything)
3) transmits
The site won't send a clarification request so I had to send it as a solution.

Motorola Talkabout T5700 and Audiovox GMRS 1582CH don't talk


Hi,

Most radios of this series would have Interference Eliminator Codes. The codes eliminate other incoming transmission not with the same code (number). There could be similar radios working on the same channel/frequency, but if they do not have the same code then neither one would hear each other. This does not make a channel "private", rather it limits what one can hear on that channel to another radio with an identical setting of the code. In some Motorola models, pressing the Menu button until the small numbers/code flashes would enable them to be changed. To change, press the + or - keys. Pressing the MON key or setting the code to Zero would enable the radio to receive and sound off all incoming signals with or without the code.

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.

Won't transmit


First I would check the interference code on both radios to see if it is set the same. It is possible you have one set to zero and the other set to another number. This would cause the problem you describe. The interference eliminator is designed to block out transmissions from radios whose settings do not match it.

If all your settings are identical, and you have only 2 radios, it is not possible to tell which one has the problem. You either have one with no transmit or one with no receive. The only way to tell which you have is to get a 3rd radio involved, set to the same settings.

Audiovox FR530


follow instructions on page 13 of your manual "using monitor button" place receiving radio in monitor and key up other radio. It is better if you have someone help. have another person take the radio to another room away from you to complete test. sometimes if the radios are two close too each other they will cancel each other out.

Fixing my radio


Hi,

It is possible that your Motorola FR60 though on the same channel/frequency have different CTCSS settings. CTSS is also known as Interference Eliminator Code or Coded squelch, Private-Line, PL, Quiet Call, Channel, Guard, etc. What needs to be done is to set both to the same code setting on the settings/menu. Turning the code/CTCSS OFF would also serve the same but allow other radios (without CTCSS) to be likewise received/heard.

If they are already on the same code setting and still no receive audio, it is possible a fault on the squelch, receive/audio circuitry or even the speaker itself which of course would require hands-on/in-shop service.

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

Good luck and kind regards.
