Question about Kenwood ProTalk UBZ-AM14 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Hearing Aid Compatability

I just started working for a store that use Kendwood FRS radios and earclip headsets with push to talk buttons to communicate between Sales Associates on the store floor. This is also part of their security system.
I wear two Behind The Ear hearing aids (Phonak) that do not have “T” switches.
I have contacted my Phonak dealer also looking for suggestion.
I can be contacted at:

Thanks

Under ADA it is the employer's responsibility to make adaptations to your condition. Their radio provider should be able to provide you with hearing aid compatible headsets.

SOURCE: FreeTalk 3131 compatible with proTalk radios?


Hello Christian,

Some of the Kenwood ProTalk series radios may be programmable by the dealer to operate in the 462-468 MHz range used by GMRS and FRS radios. However the radios are not FCC approved for those channels and do not comply with requirements for FRS and GMRS radio equipment.

You are going to be better served by picking up a FreeTalk 3131XLS like your friends have. In terms of style and features this radios is very similar to the ProTalk but is type approved for use on GMRS.

Best Regards,
Ken

Can get headset to work right


check your radios settings, this should be available in a menu on the radio... the user manual does not show a setting for non vox operation of the head set, (as this maybe a version difference it may be available in the menu) so if it is not available in the menu with the rest of the settings it is not an option.

Can you use 2 different talkabouts fr50 and t5420 with each other? I have just one of each unfortunately.


  • Yes they will both talk together on the same channels just fine. Most of the more recent Talk About Radios are FRS/GMRS with 22 channels. These radios are FRS only with out the GMRS. The FRS are the first 14 channels in most talk about's as are your radios.

Short answer, maybe. It depends on whether you have a 14 channel or a 30 channel Talk-About. The Motorola Talk-Abouts operate on the FRS frequencies (14 channel) or FRS & GMRS frequencies (30 channel). The MU21CV does cover a few of the GMRS frequencies. (see bold numbers)

GMRS Frequencies
462.500, 462.575, 462.600, 462.625, 462.650, 462.675, 462.700, 462.725, 467.550, 467.575, 467.600, 467.625, 467.650, 467.675, 467.700 & 467.725

FRS Frequencies

DOES IT HAVE A CALL BUTTON?


It has a PTT (push-to-talk) button. But if you are talking about a button to make a call tone (ringing sound) come out the other radios, the answer is no.

Best regards.

Sqeal when talk button is pushed


Two known causes of squealing when the radio is put under a load (such as when the PTT is pressed) are a low or bad battery, or being too close to another radio.

I recieved a talkabout 250 and i have no clue how to use it please help


You would need two or more radios to be able to communicate with others. Then you simply press the push-to-talk (PTT) button when you want to talk (transmit) and release it so others can reply (receive). The radios must be set to the same settings to be able to communicate.

How to talk from one talkie to another


the radios may be on the same channel but are they also set to the same privacy code. if the speakers are working on the radios and if the recieve portion of the radio is good then this would be the cause of your problem. Most FRS radios will have the channel number as the big number on the display and the privacy code as a smaller number on the right hand side of the display. make sure that the privacy code nubers are the same.

Motorola talkabout 250 beeps when the talk button is pushed


The radio has possibly been damp or wet. Take the battery pack out of the radio and allow the radio to dry, or to speed the process try using a blow dryer on a low setting.

Check your programming and be certain your large and small numbers match one another when you get ready to try the radio again.

Here is a manual which most closely matches your radio type: http://www.usersmanualguide.com/motorola/2-way_radio/t280

If you are using vox (voice activated transmit) go into the menu and make sure you don't have the VOX setting too high. You should be able to put the headset on... hit the "push to talk" button on the radio and transmit you audio. Turn the other radio on and make sure the radio is "keying" (tx with no auio) then make sure there is audio. If you don't have audio but the radio is transmitting.. you might have the wrong type of plug on your headset for the audio..... there are 2 plugs... 1 for transmit audio....1 for recieve audio. It could be the wrong type of plug for the jack in the radio. Regardless.. the way the headset works is either you push the "push to talk button" onj the radio OR you use the VOX function... with the vox function you just have to talk into the mic to transmit. This is what your headset is designed for. You will have to go into the menu and set up the radio for VOX. If you still have problems follow my directions at the top of this page ( check mic jack and stuff) I think you just have to set the radio up for VOX operation and set the VOX setting. You should be able to push the push to talk button and talk through the mic on the headset. If you don't get any audio that way there is a problem and you should check the jack and plug on the headset.
