My T5950 won't stop beeping when I push the PTT button. I tried holding the PTT in when I turn the unit on and that didn't stop it.


Very likely it is the battery. Beeping means not enough power especially when transmitting. Try charging the battery again, try transmitting again and plan on new batteries. They "wear out" even when not in use.

When I turn my CLS1110 radio on it displays a capital F and the number 8. It will not enter program mode when I follow directions. What do I need to do?


F8 indicates you are on frequency number 8. Sometimes to enter programming mode, it seems you need 3 hands. Be certain to gently, yet firmly, hold in the PTT and Monitor button while turning on the radio. Do not release the buttons until the Beeping stops. If after repeated attempts your radio does not go into programming mode using this method, you may have a worn or sticky PTT, Monitor, or bad on/off. Sometimes the on/off (volume potentiometer) will get a "dead" spot. You might try different volume settings also, when doing the initial turn on.

If none of these work, you can also use a multi-unit charger to clone another radio into your radio. The instructions are on page 32 of the guide.

Or you can return to factory default settings by holding in the PTT and Menu button for 3 sec while turning the radio on.

Walkie talkies model gmr325-2 ic;513C-UT914 HOW DO I GET THESE TO TRANSMIT, MY HUSBAND HAS CANCER AND WE NEED THEM IN OUR BEDROOMS AND WHEN I AM OUTSIDE, TK U, TK U


In order to get the most out of your new radio, read this reference guide completely before attempting to operate the radio.

Turning the Radio On and Adjusting the Volume

1) Press and hold the key to turn the radio ON.

2) To change the volume level press the volume/monitor up or down key to increase or decrease the volume level.

3) Press and hold the key to turn the radio OFF.

Adjusting the Sound (Key Beeps)

Your radio emits a beep each time one of the keys (except for the PTT button and call key) is pressed.
The sound of the Key Beep will increase or decrease depending on the volume level setting.

To turn OFF this beep:

Press and hold the call key while turning ON the radio.

To turn ON this beep:

Turn the radio OFF and ON again.

Choosing a Channel

Your GMR325-2 radio has 22 channels you can use to talk to others. In order to speak to someone,
each of you must be set to the same channel.

To choose a channel:

Press the channel/scan up or down key to increase or decrease the channel number displayed.

Channel Scan Feature

Your GMR325-2 radio has a channel Scan feature that allows you to easily Scan all 22 channels. When an active channel is detected, the unit will pause on that channel until the channel is clear. Then after a 2 second delay, the unit will continue scanning.

Pressing PTT button while the Scan is paused on a channel will allow you to transmit on that channel.

To turn ON channel scanning:

Press and hold either the channel/scan up or down key. The channel number on the display
will rapidly cycle through the channels.

To turn OFF channel scanning:

Press either the channel/scan up or down key.

Talking on Your Radio

To talk to others using the radio:
1) Press and hold the PTT button and speak in a clear, normal voice about 2-3 inches away from the microphone.

While you are transmitting the tx icon is displayed. To avoid cutting off the first part of your transmission, pause slightly after pressing the PTT button before you start talking.

2) When you are finished speaking, release the PTT button.You can now receive incoming calls. While receiving, the rx icon is displayed.

To transmit the call alert tone, press the call key.

The tone will automatically be transmitted for a fixed length of time.

Auto Squelch Feature

The GMR325-2 is equipped with an automatic squelch system which shuts off weak transmissions
and unwanted noise due to terrain conditions or if you have reached your range limit.

Monitor Mode Feature

Your GMR325-2 radio allows you to listen for weak signals on the current channel at the press of a key.

To turn ON monitor mode:

Press and hold the volume/monitor up or down key. The rx icon will blink.

To turn OFF monitor mode:

Press the volume/monitor up or down key. The rx icon will stop blinking.

Automatic Power Save Feature

Your GMR325-2 has a unique circuit designed to dramatically extend the life of the batteries. If there is neither transmission nor an incoming call within 2 seconds, your radio switches to the Power Save mode. The radio is still able to receive transmissions in this mode.

KEYLOCK ON/OFF

Press and hold the call key until the "L" appears. After 1 second, the LCD will return to the channel display.
To exit Keylock on mode, press and hold call again.

Note: While in keylock on mode, it will still receive transmissions.

Roger Beep can be heard through the speaker when Key Beep is on.
Roger Beep is transmitted even if key beep is turned off. However Roger Beep will not be heard from the speaker.

To turn OFF Roger Beep: Press and hold the channel/scan up Key while turning on the radio.

To turn the tlk confirmation tone off... it does not work holding the - sign and turning it on now what?


Just read your message a second time. Is the sound following the release of the PTT button? If so, it is indeed the Roger Beep (aka talk confirmation tone). If holding in the minus button while turning the radio on does not turn it off, there might be something wrong with the radio, such as a one of the other buttons being slighty stuck. Or you have your keypad locked. To unlock the keypad hold the menu button in for 3 seconds until the lock icon disappears.

Another thing which will make a noise during or after transmitting is the low battery beep. You might check your batteries. Old, bad, poorly charged or defective batteries can cause this.

fyi: Some users might think the Call Tones are the Roger Beep.

Lastly, there is a PTT Timeout beep which will occur if you hold the PTT in for more than 60 sec while talking.

Hope one of these items is of help to you.

How do I use a cloning cable to program a hand held MT1000


Cloning Procedure:
(The content of radio A is to be duplicated into radio B)
1. Turn off radio A and turn on radio B.
2. Connect the cloning cable (NKN6376A) to the Universal Connector of both radio A and radio B.
3. Place the PL switch on radio A to the carrier squelch position for full cloning, or the PL position for partial cloning. Full cloning will duplicate the content of radio A to radio B, except for the deviation and squelch settings. Partial cloning is recommended due to deviation variations from radio to radio. (Later version MT1000's (B model for 6, 16, and 99 channel portables; A model for 8 channel) have partial cloning.)
4. Simultaneously depress the PTT and Monitor button on radio A and hold.
5. Turn on radio A. The green LED turns off. Release the PTT and the Monitor button on radio A (HT600's and older MT1000's (A model for 16 and 99 channel portables) beep when cloning is complete). Turn radios "off and on" to reset.
6. Cloning is complete once the green LED turns off. Release both the PTT and Monitor button on radio A. Turn radio A off and on to reset.

NOTE:
For MDC front covers (NTN5456, NTN5457, NTN5458, NTN5459, and NTN6009B), make sure that radio B is turned on before it is connected to the cloning cable.

NOTE:
All VHF wideband radios (146-174MHz) are "C" model radios. A "C" model radio can be cloned only to/from another "C" model radio. An attempt to clone a "C" model radio to an "A" or "B" model radio will result in an unsuccessful cloning attempt.
Any unsuccessful cloning attempt (depending on operating condition of the radio) will result in one of the following alerts:
1. in receive (rotary radio) - 1600Hz continuous alert tone
2. in receive (display radios) - 88 displayed on LCD
3. in transmit - 1600Hz beeping alert tone

How do you go to silent mode?


There are two different kinds of beeps you can control, the "roger" beep and the "button" beeps. Below is an excerpt from the owners manual explaining the simple procedure.

“Roger” Beeps/Talk Confirmation Tone
When you turn this feature On, your two-way radio transmits a unique tone when
you finish transmitting. It’s like saying “Roger” or “Over” and lets others know
you have finished talking. If the person you are talking to does not hear the talk
confirmation tone, you can enable it by pressing and holding + (plus) as you turn On
your radio. Now, whenever you release the PTT, you let your friends know you have
finished talking by transmitting a “Roger” Beep tone. “Roger” Beeps will be
disabled as the Default Setting.
Note: To toggle the Talk Confirmation Tone feature, turn your radio Off and then
back On while pressing and holding + (plus) .

Button Beeps
Every time you press a button on the front of your radio, it beeps unless you turn
Button Beeps Off. To turn Button Beeps Off, turn your radio On while you press - (minus) and
hold . To turn Button Beeps back On, turn the radio Off and then back On again
while you press and hold the - (minus) . On is the Default setting.

Motorola walkie


With the radio turned off, hold in the PTT and the Monitor button at the same time. Continue to hold these in while turning the radio on. Wait for the radio to finish making sounds before releasing the PTT and monitor button. Then simply press the menu button to walk through programming each of the features. When you have reached the end of the user programmable features you will notice the radio has a different chirp to signal you are done. Then simply turn off the radio to leave programming mode.

Muting the sound


Hi,

The sound produced by a Motorola radio when the mike is keyed refers to the "Transmitting Call Tone" which is another feature other than the "Interference Eliminator" or the "Roger Beep" feature.

On most Motorola GMRS/FRS TalkAbout radios, setting the "Call Tone" to 0 disables the feature. This is done with the radio ON by pressing on the "Menu" button 3 times which will result in the display showing the current Call Tone setting (flashing) and the letters CA; pressing on the <- or +> buttons will change selection (you will also hear the different Tones), select 0 (it may be up to 5 or 10 depending on the version). Press on the "Menu" or "PTT" button to set, save and exit.

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.
