Question about Motorola Talkabout FR50 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio
I have a set of fr50's, and one T5600. The 5600 will communicate with ONE of the fr50's, but the fr50 cannot transmit back for some reason. The two fr50's cannot communicate with each other, and I cannot even get the channel to change on one of them. One of the fr50's will transmit a signal to the other, but will not carry a verbal message. The other won't even transmit a signal to the first one. Can someone help me to at least get 2 of my talkabouts to communicate with each other?
What you have described is typical of the radios not being on the same frequency and/or code. If you know how to put your radios in programming mode, set all the frequencies and codes to the same number, then they will work together. If you still have the owners manual it will describe this process. Usually with a TalkAbout radio it consists of holding in the PTT while turning the radio on.
As you are probably aware, the radio will have approx. 14 frequencies installed. You can usually select these easily from the front panel. The second number you see in the corner of the screen when you turn on the radio is the "code". This is an interference eliminator. All of your radios need to be set to the same code to work correctly together. If you find one or more of your radios does not have "code", simply set those that have "code" to zero.
