Can they talk to each other?
check the tx and rx frequency.
Check the subtones, are they TPL or DPL?

Need to connect radios


Here is a link to the user guide for the T6500
http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T6500_usermanual.pdf

You will need to set the frequency and interference eliminator code to match one another on both radios. It would be adviseable to keep any special features such as call alert and Qt filter turned off (zero) until you are confident in adding them into the mix.

Instructions can be found on pages 15-18.

Best regards.

I just bought it and tested on a channel and eliminator code and it worked fine. But after a while I cannot hear static when holding "mon" and cannot hear the other radio if I talk into one. This happens...


If the radios are working fine otherwise, don't worry about the monitor feature not creating white noise (static). If you are still having a problem with the radios, try setting the interference eliminator code to off (zero). And turn off any other special features to see if you can regain communications. Then slowly add the features back in as you need them. All radios must be identical in freq., code, and features.

Best regards.

Radios don't communicate between them


Check the programming of your frequency, interference eliminator code and Qt filter (if any). Be certain the radios match identically. If you are still having problems turn your Qt filter (if any) off, and set your code to zero. If the problem still persists, you have a radio problem.

Motorola Talkabout FV700 not transmitting nor receiving


To troubleshoot: Unlock your keypad lock, then reprogram your radios to the following settings. (Check function after each change)
1) Shut off the Interference Eliminator (set to zero).
2) Turn off the Qt filter.
3) Vox setting to off.

By shutting off all the "bells and whistles" of the radio, you will take it back to being just simply on a frequency. If your radios do not communicate with one another then, or with your friend's radios, you have radio which is failing to operate.

If the radios do work in this simple mode. One by one add the special features back until you discover the culprit.

You need to set your interference eliminator code to zero, and your Qt filter to zero also. Here is a link to the owners manual: http://direct.motorola.com/ENS/T6500%20Series%20User%20Manual.pdf

What is happening is your T6500 is set to ignore radios which do not match the same code. The fact your Cobras can hear the T6500 indicates they are set with their interference eliminator turned off (aka no code).

A similar occurance will happen if the Qt filter is set to anything but zero. The Qt filter is unique to Motorola. These features are beneficial when you are in a high radio traffic area and you want to block out hearing other people. But in your situation, you are mixing radios, and the easiest way to make them match is to turn off the special features (aka set them to zero).

Motorola T6510 Talkabout powers up, but won't send or receive


On this model there is no shortcut to restore the factory defaults. However, if you walk through all the steps of the programming menu and make the radios identical, pay particular attention to the Qt filter. This is different than the interference code eliminator. Set your Qt filter to zero for the best results.

Motorola FV500 - lots and lots of noise on line..


Hello hanshez,

It's also possible that the noise is being caused by local interence. You could try using a different channel. Disable your interference eliminator function and try listening to the various channels to find a quiet one. The interference codes don't actually eliminate interference they just keep you from hearing activity on the channel that can still interfere with your communications.

As long as there isn't other activity on the channel your radios should be able to communcate. Are the radios able to communicate with each other when you are in the same room? Does the problem occur when your son gets further away? Or when he is outside and you are inside? If so, the issue may be one of range.

These kinds of two-way radios are very good for communiations when the users are within line-of-sight of each other. However communications can become blocked by tall trees and buildings, if one user is inside a building or automobile, etc. The 8-mile range that Motorola lists is really only practical when one user has some altitude over the other and clear line-of-sight, such as being on top of a tall hill outdoors with no nearby buildings. For typical communications over relatively flat ground with no obstructions, I would expect a more typical range of less then one mile. Obstructions can lower this effective communications range even more.

Hope this helps.
Ken
