    If I had a user manual maybe I could solve some of the problems. Anyone know where I can get a user manual for a Motorola Talkabout FR60?

How can I get my sigma 400 bike computer to display speed and distance?


Need to know if it worked before, and what you have tried so far - new battery, repositioning magnet, making sure unit is seated well in mounting? If you take a magnet and move it back and forth right next to the wheel sensor and get no response then either the signal is not getting to the computer or the computer is broken and needs to be replaced.

My remote start and keyless entry remote only works up to 5 feet away how do i extend the distance. i bought new remotes and had them programmed but still no distance


On my cars this has always been a remote battery replacement issue, weak battery equals weak signal causes short range. However you say you bought new remotes and they must have had new batteries in them. Did someone put some metal foil shielding around the receiver?I think this would have to be some type of bad receiver issue.

There's a good chance that your problem is due to corrosion buildup on the radio's battery contacts. Even if you can't see and buildup, wipe the contacts firmly with dry cloth, the reinsert the batteries and try the set again. If you can see a heavy buildup on the contacts, you may need to clean them with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. Be sure to remove any residue from the cleaning before you install the batteries.

I just purchased two radios. How far will they transmit and receive with good clarity in the city? I need to transmit and receive from about six to eight miles away clearly. Thanks.


bobengelman,

Typically and unmodified handheld CB will have a decent talk distance of 1-2 miles with both being a handheld. Further distances can be had if one of the radios was a mobile or base station with distances of more than five miles with weak signals. In some cases the antenna can be changed to a better longer antenna. Extention type antennas typically transmit about a mile per watt. Conditions such as terrain will have an impact on signal specifically mountains or buildings. Better results may also be had by purchasing a mobile magnet mount with a PL-259 to BNC to fit the radio. A magnet mount placed on a air conditioning unit or large cookiesheet as high as possible will make decent gains for distance if the radios are intended to be stationary.

Baby monoitor reciever piking up no sound or delayed sound - link light flashing


A delay may be caused by interference from other radio sources. I heard of one case where a woman's cell phone call overpowered the transmit power of her baby monitor.

Other things that can cause interference or other receiver problems:
1. monitor in contact or close proximity to running appliances or their cords. (induced electromagnetic field)
2. neighbor with baby monitor on same channel ('cross-talk')
3. distance between transmitter and receiver too far (the strength of a radio signal fall dramatically over larger distances. think of how often you lose cell phone coverage)
4. reduced power: low battery strength or cooked power supply
5. transmitter or receiver insulated from signal (if your monitor was transmitting/receiving through any metal obstruction)

FR60 intermittent transmission


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,

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.
