Me too. Also, transmit seems to work fine but the battery level indicator drops a lot after a few short transmissions.

Sends but will not recieve

If the receiver makes noise with volume up and squelch down, then the receiver itself is probably damaged and typically not worth the expense of fixing. If you can't get noise, it may be the speaker. Some models have an external speaker port you could try.

Icom m36 will not receive. Speaker makes noise with squelch all the way up but just won't receive anything including weather.

You may have the CTCSS tone squelch enabled so unless a station you're listening to is encoding CTCSS tones, you won't hear the traffic you're expecting.

Atlantis 250 will receive but won't talk out, could this be a faulty push to talk button?

Are you sure it isn't transmitting? do you have a PL encoded on the radio you are using as a receiver? disable it so you can hear everything on it. the wrong digital squelch settings between the two radios will make it look like one of them is not transmitting.

You may have blown the speaker. First I would check the speaker, unpluging the speaker two wire jack the speaker should read 8 ohms with a meter sat to ohm. Good luck.

Yaesu FT-11R amateur radio squelch problem

It sounds like perhaps you have CTCSS turned on so it's blocking received signals that aren't using sub-audible tones. Make sure the "TSQ" indicator is not showing. Most Yaesu radios have the SQU or "T.SQ" option easily found in their menu structure..

My Oregon Scientific WR602 frequently loses it's settings and I have to reset it before it will pick up the NOAA again. Once I do that everything is fine for a while, then it loses it's settings again and...

It happens, and can be discouraging at times. Not sure what your locale is, but there are certain geographical areas that are more equipped with towers to create a more stronger and consistent signal, whereas there are also areas that have less towers that create a weaker signal. If you are noticing that your WR is frequently losing a signal, or are receiving consistent white noise/static, you might try moving your WR device into a different location. It may take some test time at each location.
Here are some other tips:

1) Make sure your WR is placed in a location away from the use of too many electrical devices. Sometimes, just plugging your device away from your computer, desktop telephone, answering machine, and other electrical devices will frequently solve the problem.

2) Try stationing your device to a higher location. If you have a 3 story home, consider placing it in the upstairs. Same applies with lower levels. If you have a one story home, try stationing your weather radio higher up and test your signal then.

3) Make sure that your WR is capable of receiving a signal. The best signals are typically reached when the receiver is placed near a window with no visible interference blocking the transmission.

4) Make sure your battery is charged or unit is placed in the charging base to receive a solid signal.

5) Make sure your location and channels are set correctly. If you set your location to AUTO, you should have no problem hearing weather reports for your area. If you would like to hear the weather report for your county only, call 1-888-697-7263. Follow the prompts through a simple voice menu.
(OR) go to Click the state for which information is needed.

Motorola FV500 2 way radio can send/cant receive

Do you hear the Beeps on the speaker? Check for the QT and the code squelch are the same in both radios, try to set code squelch in "0". Make sure that the radio is not receiving or the other one is not transmiting, with two radios will see the same.
