SOURCE: 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,

Initially, pls check that the displays of both radios are identical. This is important to establish that the channel/frequency, Interference eliminator settings and all others are the same that both are paired. In some instances, the radio settings may not be changed if it is locked. Top unlock, press on the MENU button for about 3 seconds. For all other settings, pls refer to the user's manual.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Assuming you have checked all the channels for functionality, it appears your radios need reprogrammed. This is something which would require you taking the radios to your local Motorola dealer.

SOURCE: the radios are on the same exact channel but will

Recheck your Frequency, Interference Code Eliminator and the Qt Filter. If all 3 are set identical. If this doesn't clear up the issue. Next set your Qt Filters and your Code to zero (off). Lastly, on the radio which has problems transmitting, check your battery. A bad battery will cause intermittent transmit issues. Trade the battery with a known good battery and see if the problem clears up. Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser.

Need hep programming a new uniden bcd396xt scanner

Unfortunately, you didn't specify if you needed assistance with programming digital or conventional radio systems.. but here is the info for conventional systems. Since a conventional system is really a collection of frequencies, the first thing you need to know is the frequency for each channel you want to program.

  1. Go to the Program System menu and choose New System .
  2. The scanner will prompt you for the System Type. Select Conventional .
  3. When the scanner prompts you confirm, tap YES .
  4. The scanner creates the system with a default name. Select Edit Name if you want to change it.
  5. If you need to change any of the system properties, you can do that now. Unless a property is Required , you can operate the system without changing the default settings.

Create at least 1 channel group Each conventional system can contain up to 20 channel groups, and all systems must contain at least 1 channel group.

  1. On the Program System menu, select the system you just created.
  2. Go to the Edit Group menu and select New Group .
  3. If you need to change any of the channel group properties, you can do that now. Unless a property is Required , you can operate the system without changing the default settings.

Create at least 1 channel in each group Each conventional system can contain up to 1000 channels in each group, and all groups must contain at least 1 channel.

  1. On the Edit Group menu, select the channel group you just created.
  2. Go to the Edit Channel menu and select New Channel .
  3. Input the frequency for this channel in MHz.
  4. If you need to change any of the channel properties, you can do that now. Unless a property is Required , you can operate the system without changing the default settings.

We purchased the midland two way radio, the problem is the channel we are on we only can hear every one in our group, but can not communicate if they are on their radio. How can we get on the same...

You should ask the others what channals they are on if you cant for whatever reason then scan for a frequincy that has others on it by hitting the scan butten and hitting the channal up or channal down butten, if you can tthen talk on each channal in order and wait 10 seconds for a reply then go to another channal and try agean, im not sure if you can hear others unless they have the same brand radio's but i could be wrong, i am also not sure if the scan butten will work so after it goes through all of the channals 2 times then try the other suggestion. you also want to make sure you have good batteries in when you try.

Hope this helps

My motorola has an emergency alert button on top, when pressed and held it sounds an alarm on all other radios near it. we pushed it to test and it works well and is a cool feature. however, the call tone...

Your radio may be functioning normally for the emergency alert. Here is an excerpt from the user guide:

Emergency Alert Mode

The Emergency Alert feature can be used to signal members in your

group of your need for urgent help. MR series radios will operate in an

automatic "hands-free" emergency control mode for a total of 30

seconds after activating the Emergency Alert. MR series radios in your

group will automatically advance the speaker volume to the maximum

setting and sound a warbling alert tone for 8 seconds. The alert tone is

emitted from your own radio speaker and the receiving radios in your

group. After the 8 second alert, any spoken words or incidental sounds at

your end will be transmitted to the group for 22 seconds. For the 30

second duration of Emergency Alert mode, MR series radio controls and

buttons will be locked to maximize reception of the emergency message.

1. Press and hold the Emergency Alert button for 3 seconds.

2. Release the button after the LED Indicator glows red and the alert tone

begins to sound. There is no need to continue to hold the Emergency

Alert button or use PTT for your message to be transmitted.

3. After the alert tone ends you may speak into the microphone. Your

voice or incidental sounds will be transmitted. The LED indicator will

continue to glow for the duration of the 22 second period.

4. After 30 seconds your radio speaker will emit a Talk Confirmation

Tone and the LED Indicator will extinguish. Operation then returns to
normal two-way mode.

Note: All Motorola Talkabout EM, MJ, and MR series radios are fully

compatible with the Emergency Alert feature. Radios other than EM, MJ,

MR series can receive the emergency alert signal, but will not respond

with adjusted volume settings, locked controls, or a warbling alert tone.

Users of other radio models set to the same channel and Interference

Eliminator Code will hear a steady tone for 8 seconds followed by the

voice transmission for 22 seconds.

Warning: The Emergency Alert feature should only be used in the event

of an actual emergency. Motorola is not responsible if there is no
response to the emergency alert from the receiving group.

Best regards.

Need instructions to reset my Midland weather alert radio. Time and channel for Amarilli, TX.

On the Midland Weather Radio WR-100 web page of this website, scroll down until you get to the "Manual" heading. There is a link there (WR-100 Weather/RDS Radio Manual); click it and your instructions manual will come up in a .pdf format. To get the frequency channel for Amarillo, go to this website- I do not know what county you live, so you will have to look at every county listing that has your city name in its group. When you find the information you need, insert it into your radio.

Is the midland gxt 650 compatable with the g12

All type-accepted GMRS radios operate on the same frequencies and use the same type of transmissions. Channel numbers are the same on most models, but check the channel/frequency chart in the radio's operating manual to be sure.
