Need code for Custer co


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this post. It would be more helpful if you could name the state you live in. There are 6 Custer Counties in the United States. But since I don't know which specific state you live in, I will give you the links to each of the five of the six states that contain Custer County (Idaho has no NWR coverage).

1. Colorado (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/coverage/ccov.php?State=CO)
2. Montana (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/coverage/ccov.php?State=MT)
3. Nebraska (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/coverage/ccov.php?State=NE)
4. Oklahoma (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/coverage/ccov.php?State=OK)
5. South Dakota (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/coverage/ccov.php?State=SD)
Hope these help.

Radius? manual? akkumulator


  • Channels 1-7 transmit these are GMRS and transmit on a slightly higher power. On these channels, in optimal conditions about 15miles. Optimal is out in the open with no obstructions. In a suburban setting with many building you may get 2 miles out of them.
  • On channels 8-11 these are FRS and transmit with slightly less power. In optimal conditions 15 miles and in a suburban setting you may get 1 1/2 mile.

I want to know talk range of Talkabout T5720


Handheld radios generally will talk "radio-to-radio", "line-of-sight" up to 2 miles. Once you start putting obstacles in between the radios you will shorten your range.

Advertising literature will sometimes give numbers such as "5 mile range". While this is possible in ideal conditions, it is not common in real-world situations. HEIGHT and PLACEMENT of the antenna determines the range of the radio. Example: Talking from a mountaintop you could talk far into a valley below, much further than the expected 2 miles. However, if you were to be in an congested city, you may only be able to talk a single city block due to obstacles.

To get the best range, use a well charged battery pack, wear your radio high on your body, and always hold the antenna perpendicular to the ground when using the radio.

Tranmitting distance


Generally speaking a 2-way radio will talk as far as it can see. Height and placement of antenna determines range. So if you were talking from a Mountain to a valley you could talk a great distance. However, in the real world there are obstacles, such as trees, houses, varied terrain. You generally would expect a radio to talk line-of-sight up to two miles. Or 1/4 to 1/2 mile if talking from inside a building to outside. The quote of 5 miles in literature is referencing ideal conditions. (Much like when the new car you are looking at quotes the MPG.)

Motorola Talkabout T5720


Hello kenyond,

The range that you can expect to see when using two-way radios is very dependent on local conditions. These radios are very line-of-sight dependent. Obstructions like mountains, hills, tall buildings, thick vegetation, and using the radio in a shielded environment such as inside of an automobile can block your line of sight and limit your effective communications range.

That “maximum 5 mile” advertised range is probably only practical in a situation where the user of one of the radios has some significant elevation (such as being on top of a tall hill) and therefore has increased line of sight. When communicating over relatively level ground that is clear of obstructions, you can probably expect a reliable communications range of about a mile.

Talkabout T5720 Frequencies


Hello Ruaal,

The frequencies in the TalkAbout T5720 are not adjustable. The radio operates on the designated Family Radio Service channels located at 462 and 467 MHz. There is no way to change these channels to be at 463 and 464 MHz.

Best regards,

Unsilence


Hello gc0273,

Make sure that both radios are using the same Interference Eliminator Code. The situation you describe sounds like one radio has a Interfernce Eliminator Code activated and the other radio does not.

To access the Interfence Eliminator Code setting on this radio press and hold the MENU button until the code starts to flash, then use the + or - keys to adjust the setting and press the PTT to save it.

Best Regards

Communication problem with my brend new T5720.


I have seen some problems with new out of box radios, one of them is out of frequency and recieve with noise and works with low range coverage. I can not clarify what you mean with feed back, check if you set in low volume if the radio works fine. That will tell you that the speaker or the Synth circuitry has a problem. Neto.
