Hello oldskolhippy,

The two radios do not appear to be compatible with one another. The Motorola is a Family Radio hybrid manufactured for the USA market and the Twintalker is a PMR446 radio made for consumers in the European Union. The two radios serve roughly the same purpose (short distance, unlicensed communications) but they do not share any channels in common.

I am not sure where you are located, but it is technically a violation of FCC rules to operate the PMR446 radio in the United States. Likewise the FRS radio cannot legally be used within the EU. I'd recommend replacing one of the radios with a more appropriate one.

Best Regards,
Ken

One of our two radios (Motorola T5720) recieves but when you go to talk to someone else they cant here you. I have made sure that we were on the same channel.


Check your Code (interference eliminator code) and your Qt filter (if any) to see if they match the other units.

Best regards.

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a link to the user guide for the T5720, where you will find a list of frequencies: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf See page 19.

Its the T5500 model. I don't know how to get it working and talk through to the other Talkie. They are both on the same channels but still won't work.


Check the programming of your Frequency, interference eliminator Code, and Qt filter. If you are still having difficulties set the Code and Qt to zero or off.

My problem is i dont know how to work it?!


Here is a link to the user guide http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf

First, we suggest checking to see the radios are on the same frequency, interference eliminator code and the Qt filter is set to off or zero. Once you have determined the radios are set alike, you should be able to use the radios by pressing the push-to-talk button when you want to talk, and releasing it when you want to listen to the other radio(s) talking back to you.

I want to communicate from t5720 talkabout to midland lxt303. When I set them to the same channel the talkabot gets out but will not receive unless I press the MON button on the face of the radio


Set your interference eliminator code on the T5720 and the Qt filter both to zero. You have one or both turned on. By setting them to zero you will turn them off. Then your radios should work together.

The talkabout t5500 and the t5725


Hello bella-9,

The T5500 is a 2 channel radio and the T5725 is a 14 channel radio. However, the radios should be compatible with each other on FRS channels 1-14 as long as both radios are using the same Quiet Talk code. If the Quiet Talk settings are different the radios will not be able to communicate with one another.

Assuming all settings are the same (as you say) and the units are within range of each other (typically less then a mile over clear, level terrain) they should work just fine.

Best Regards,
Ken

How do I get my motorola T5725 radios to talk to eack other


Hell ssalah,

Most of the time when one radio cannot talk to the other radio it means that the Privacy Codes are not configured properly. In order for the two radios to talk to one another they both have to be set to the same channel and Privacy Code or the Privacy Code function needs to be turned off on both radios.

The Privacy Codes can be used to keep the radios silent unless they receive a signal from another radio using the same code. This enables the radios to be used on busy channels with a minimum of interference. If Privacy Codes are turned off on one radio and turned on for the other radio, the situation you describe will occur.

Consult the user's manual for information on the Privacy Code function and either disable the function on both radios or set both radios to the same code.
Best Regards,
Ken

If you are using vox (voice activated transmit) go into the menu and make sure you don't have the VOX setting too high. You should be able to put the headset on... hit the "push to talk" button on the radio and transmit you audio. Turn the other radio on and make sure the radio is "keying" (tx with no auio) then make sure there is audio. If you don't have audio but the radio is transmitting.. you might have the wrong type of plug on your headset for the audio..... there are 2 plugs... 1 for transmit audio....1 for recieve audio. It could be the wrong type of plug for the jack in the radio. Regardless.. the way the headset works is either you push the "push to talk button" onj the radio OR you use the VOX function... with the vox function you just have to talk into the mic to transmit. This is what your headset is designed for. You will have to go into the menu and set up the radio for VOX. If you still have problems follow my directions at the top of this page ( check mic jack and stuff) I think you just have to set the radio up for VOX operation and set the VOX setting. You should be able to push the push to talk button and talk through the mic on the headset. If you don't get any audio that way there is a problem and you should check the jack and plug on the headset.
