Yes. Both should utilize the same 14 or so FRS and GMRS frequencies. The only exception would be if one of them were a model produced for another country. While this is rare, it is worthy of asking.

Best regards.

I hunt in a remote area. Will the t5000


If your farm radios are FM UHF radios, it is possible they could communicate if programmed to match one another. You would need to limit your wattage on the farm radios to 1/2 watt on the FRS (family radio service) channels, which are in the T5000.

Your T5000 will NOT match CB (citizen band radios).

Best regards.

Rx not working


You need to check the programming of your Frequency, interference Code eliminator and Qt filter, if any. All must match one another for the radios to communicate. You have posted under the T5000 heading, here is a link to the nearest numbered user guide. http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T5XxX_User_Manual_E.pdf

T5420 unable to transmit or receive. Please help!


Here is a link to the user manual: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T5320_T5410_T5420_User_Manual_E.pdf

This unit does not have a reset button. While troubleshooting you might check the batteries. Be certain they are in correctly and the contacts are free of corrosion. You can use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts.

Walk through all the programming instructions in the manual, double checking both the frequency and interference eliminator codes. A quick setting back to zero on the code would alleviate any problem with that section of the radio.

As far as your "paging" this operates on the same frequency and code as the rest of the radio. If the radios are not working correctly in this relm, the paging will not work either.

Can't make the T5420 operate without the beeps!


I have not looked up the T5420 user guide, however, on most Motorola TalkAbouts you hold in the minus (-) button while turning the radio on. Post back if this doesn't work, and we'll find the manual for you.

T5420 unable to transmit or receive. Please help!


Here is a link to the T5000-T5500 user manual. 'http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T50-T55_UserGuide.pdf'

From what you have stated, I can discern the radios will power up. You might try setting your interference eliminators to zero (off) to see if you are able to transmit at all.

You do not mention if you are using AA batteries or rechargeables. Either way a fresh set of charged batteries would be best for a test. It is clear you were getting power. However, it does take more energy to transmit than to receive. If your batteries are low or bad, pressing the PTT could us all the energy the radio has, and yet not transmit to the other units.

You might also check you VOX settings if any and be certain they are turned off.

It is not likely 4 radios would fail all at the same time. So it is probably a programming problem. Hope the user manual helps you find the solution.

Motorola T5000 Rx problem


Hi SirDrag,

Your concern could be the internal speaker of the T5000. This could be verified by attaching an external speaker or a headset compatible with the unit through its accessory jack. Should this be the case, it of course would require replacement. Though Motorola speaker for this model is proprietary in design, those made for Alinco, Icom, Kenwood and/or Yaesu should also work. The only concern would be getting one that will fit the physical mounting limitations of the front cover.

In some instances, it could be the volume control developing blind spots along its carbon pad. A spray from an electronic contact cleaner should do the job (albeit temporary).

It is also possible that the Interference Eliminator Code setting is different with that of the TX radio.

Worst case possibility is a defective electronic component (such as the op amp) which would then require the professional services of a qualified communications technician.

Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
