Check that all the settings for both radios are the same. The one that's not receiving may have a quiet code (tone squelch, or "interference eliminator" code as Motorola calls it) set, and it won't let you hear any transmissions unless they have that same setting.

The radio may be receiving, but have problems with its audio output. When the other radio is transmitting, does the channel activity indicator come on in the display window? You can test that the audio stage is working by pressing and holding the "MON" button (below and right of the display). If you hear static, the radio's audio amplifier and speaker are good.

Another possibility is that the one not receiving is actually okay, but the other one isn't transmitting. Try testing both radios with another one. All FRS/GMRS radios use the same frequencies, so you can use any brand or model for testing as long as they are set on the same channel.

If your testing shows that the radio not receiving is faulty, you'll need to have it serviced by a radio shop or send it back to Motorola for repair. There's nothing you can do to work on these without specialized tools and test equipment. Or just replace the radio if it's past its warranty; it's likely to cost more to repair these than to replace them.

Doesn't transmit


Check your battery. Transmitting takes more energy than receiving. Also, check your frequency and code settings. The radio you are using this one with might have a different code setting than yours. http://shop.giantintl.com/Manuals.asp

Why is not possible to communicate from T5720 talkabout to T5422 talkabout?


The two radios share no frequencies in common. The T5720 has the US frequencies classified as FRS and GMRS, between 462-467 MHz. The T5422 has the UK frequencies classified as PMR and dPMR which are in the 446 MHz range.

A list of UK frequencies can be found in this forum: http://www.transmission1.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=23400

I have a new T5728 talkabout. My friends have T5720. When I bought my T5728, I thought that it would connect to any motorola talkabouts, assuming that we are on the same channel.. However, I was...


Unfortunately the T5728 is not compatible with the US FRS (family radio service) frequencies. The T5728 operates between 409-410MHz. The FRS radios operate between 460-470 MHz. FRS frequencies are license-free frequencies for use in the US, as regulated by the FCC. Other countries have differing rules and thus their frequencies assigned to family usage differ. Best regards, and sorry we could not help.

Frequency range


The T5720 has
- 7 GMRS/FRS 1 watt Channels
- 7 FRS 1/2 watt Channels
- 8 GMRS 1 watt Channels
All of these frequencies are between 462-467 MHz. There is a list of the specific frequencies assigned to each channel on page 19 of the user guide. Here is a link http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf

Not receiving


It is likely the radio sare not set identically. Check your frequency, code and Qt filter settings; followed by checking your batteries.

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.

You need to check your programming of both frequency and interference eliminator. You may not have your radios set to match one another.

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,
Ken
