Hello Ruaal,

The frequencies in the TalkAbout T5720 are not adjustable. The radio operates on the designated Family Radio Service channels located at 462 and 467 MHz. There is no way to change these channels to be at 463 and 464 MHz.

Best regards,
Ken

Why is not possible to communicate from T5720 talkabout to T5422 talkabout?


The two radios share no frequencies in common. The T5720 has the US frequencies classified as FRS and GMRS, between 462-467 MHz. The T5422 has the UK frequencies classified as PMR and dPMR which are in the 446 MHz range.

A list of UK frequencies can be found in this forum: http://www.transmission1.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=23400

In the USA the TalkAbout radios operate on FRS (family radio service) frequencies which do not require a license. Not certain of the laws in other countries.

Can motorola talkabout T5720 FRS/GMRS talk with Motorola GP338 UHF?


Your GP338 would need to be reprogrammed to one or more of the frequencies available in the T5720. If you are using the interference code eliminator, it would also need to be programmed into the GP338. Take your GP338 to your local Motorola dealer for reprogramming.

Here is a link to the user guide for the T5720, where you will find a list of frequencies: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf See page 19.

I have a new T5728 talkabout. My friends have T5720. When I bought my T5728, I thought that it would connect to any motorola talkabouts, assuming that we are on the same channel.. However, I was...


Unfortunately the T5728 is not compatible with the US FRS (family radio service) frequencies. The T5728 operates between 409-410MHz. The FRS radios operate between 460-470 MHz. FRS frequencies are license-free frequencies for use in the US, as regulated by the FCC. Other countries have differing rules and thus their frequencies assigned to family usage differ. Best regards, and sorry we could not help.

The T5720 has
- 7 GMRS/FRS 1 watt Channels
- 7 FRS 1/2 watt Channels
- 8 GMRS 1 watt Channels
All of these frequencies are between 462-467 MHz. There is a list of the specific frequencies assigned to each channel on page 19 of the user guide. Here is a link http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf

How to get a Talkabout T5720 to communicate with a


The frequency range and operatngmode of the two radios are compatible. To get the Radius operating on a GMRS channel you'll need a Motorola programming cable and software, OR a trip to a Motorola dealer for frequency programming. Considering the cost involved, the 2-watt output of the Radius, and the 1-watt output of the Talkabout, you would be better off performance and cost wise buying a pair of 5-watt GMRS portables.

Wanting to know how far this radio will communicate


In reality, handheld radios will talk line-of-sight up to 2 miles. When talking in and around buildings, the range can be reduced to as low as 1/4 to 1/2 mile. For optimal range, be certain to hold your radio with the antenna pointing straight up (perpendicular) to the ground. Height and placement of antenna determines range.

All that being said, many radio manufactures make claims of 5, 10, 18, 25 miles. These claims would be true if one radio can see another, such as talking from a mountain top to a valley. In the real world, we deal with curvature of the earth, hills, buildings, etc.

TalkAbout radios and the other FRS radios operate on 1/2 watt FRS, and 1-2 watt GMRS frequencies. Business radios on the other hand operate on up to 4 to 5 watts of power. The power does not always equate into extra range, it does however, provide much greater clarity in the fringe areas.

Hope this answers your question.
