Question about Motorola Talkabout 2-Way Radios

1 Answer

Motorola Talkabout I'm trying to figure out how to set the channel and frequency for a much older Talkabout from 1999. It resembles the Talkabout 200 from 2000 but it doesn't have a screen at all and it is blue. Just says Talkabout on it. It has an on button, push to talk button, monitor button and the volume control. It's like brand new but just can't find my directions for it.

    Have the same radios. I figured out how to change channels for the main channels #'s 1-15, but not the sub-channels, and I have 1 on 10-32 and another on 10-33, they will not communicate to each other but give an occasional burst of noise when keying the mike.



    To change the channel, hold the red on-off button depressed when starting for a few seconds and then press the "Talk" button, it will cycle from channels 1-15, but when you press the monitor button it will also announce the sub-channel but I havent figured out how to adjust

Hello trailrunner,

Back when Family Radios first came out a number of manufacturers came out with both standard 14 channel radios and scaled-down single channel radios designed as entry level offerings. My guess is the radio you have is probably a single channel unit based on what you describe. It probably operates on FRS channel 1 (462.5625 MHz).

If you post the model number and FCC ID number (which should be located on a sticker on the back of the radio) I might be able to give you some more information.

Best Regards,
Ken

How do I use my T4500 Motorola Talkabout?


Here is a link to the user guide for the T4500 radio: http://www.giantintl.com/radiopdfs/manuals/US/T4500.pdf

A few tips: Set your frequencies to be the same on both radios. Put your code and any special features on Zero or Off, until you feel comfortable with the use of the radio and are ready to turn them on.

Best regards.

Are motorola talkabout t6210 and talkabout 200 compatable. I have the eavesdrop reducer turned off on the t6210 but the transmissions are garbled when recieved by the talkabout 200.


Yes, they should be compatible. You are correct in shutting off your eaves drop reducer. You might also check to see you have your interference eliminator code set to zero (off). We have been unable to find a good online source for a user guide for the T200, but if memory serves, they do not have "code". Here is a link to the very similar T280 guide: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T280_User_Manual.pdf

And here is a link to the T6210 user guide http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T6200_User_Manual_E.pdf

Between the two radios there should be 14 frequencies in common. If you continue to have difficulties you might check to see if your batteries are good and/or fully charged. This also can interfere with good communications.

Best regards.

Can Motorola TA200/T5622 work with newer T5000?


A 22 channel transceiver is an American system call FRS/GMRS radios which are actually illegal in the UK and rest of europe. They use different frequencies completely and will not work together on you other PMR radios.

What will i do to connect Motorola T5720 and T5728


Set both the frequency and the interference eliminator code to match one another. (The big number and the small number) Here is a link to the owners manual: http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T56XX_57XX_User%20_Manual_E.pdf

Basic instructions:
Press the Menu Button
The freq number will flash
Use the + or - button to select the frequency.
Press the PTT button to save the channel setting.

To set the code:
Press the menu button until the code starts to flash (the small number)
Press the + or - to select the code.
Press the PTT to save the code setting.

Once you have both radios matching on frequency and code, they should communicate together.
