Question about Motorola Talkabout T6500 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio

2 Answers

We tried using a headset with it. Now, without the headset it goes back and forth between iVox and regular mode everytime you push the PTT button. Is there a way to stop it from going into Vox mode?

Here is a link to the user guide, reference page 22 for instructions on turning iVOX and VOX on or off: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T65xx.pdf (Double check you do not have the lock symbol showing while trying to change programming.)

Also, another phenomenon which can occur is when you unplug a headset or audio device while the radio is still turned on. This can leave the radio partially in VOX mode. You might try plugging in the device with the radio turned off. Then turn the radio on, use the device in VOX mode. Then shut the radio off and remove the device. See if it clears the radio's sense of having a headset plugged in.

A damaged jack can also cause the same problem.

Best regards.

Turn the Vox off completely and try it again. If it still happens, then it's a problkem on the board.

Active headset


Your headset is operating in VOX mode. This sometimes will happen if the headset is plugged into the radio when the radio is still turned on. Try unplugging the headset, turn on the radio, then talk using the PTT on the radio. Shut the radio back off. Then insert your headset plug, being certain it is seated (click) into place. Then turn the radio back on and see if it works without VOX. If you are still having problems, press the PTT on the radio one more time and see if it shuts it off.

The three things which come to mind are:
1) Is the headset the VOX headset intended for the radio model? Sometimes the rings on the plug do not match the internal points of contact if it is not the intended headset. Not all headsets are VOX capable.
2) Is the headset plugged in all the way. (You mentioned plugging in and then turning on. This is good. You must always have the radio turned off when plugging or unplugging an audio device.)
3) Try pressing the PTT on the headset cord one time before switching the dip switch to VOX. (Assuming you have a headset with the small box in the line.)

Lastly, if you continue to have difficulties, contact Motorola at the 800# provided in the user guide. They should be able to assist you.

Best regards.

Check your VOX/ iVOX settings. You will need VOX for using an audio device.

How do you disable the VOX setting on a Talkabout MR350 2 way radios. I wan to use it with a headset, but do not want VOX on.


Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/MR350-351%20User%20Guide%2012-16-08%20KEM-PK14190-90.pdf You will find the instructions for VOX and iVOX on the bottom of page one, and at the beginning of page 2.

Be certain when plugging in your audio accessory that the radio is turned off. If the radio is left on inadvertently, you would have no control over the VOX settings, it would immediately be in a confused VOX mode.

Also, with most Motorola radios, if VOX begins to occur, turn off the radio, and then re-insert the audio device plug. And in some instances, pressing the PTT on the radio when you are having a VOX occurrence will put the radio back to push-to-talk status.

Best regards.

ICOM IC-A6 Feedback type interference


The problem is caused by the microphone preamp in the headset demodulating the AM transmission. Sordin MSA headsets also have the same problem. What you require is a headset with no electronics in it and a dynamic microphone.
