If one set has FRS and GMRS channels and the other doesn't, the FRS channels may not match. Try using the lower channels or going up or down one channel.

Can a Motorola talk about 250 talk to a cobra CXT 195. They can hear me from the Motorola I just cant hear them


Your code (PL code, interference eliminator, quiet call) is not programmed the same on both radios. The Cobra appears to be set to open squelch (no code). Set your Motorola code setting to zero (off). This should solve the problem.

Does the T/A 250 use standard CB fequencies?


No. The TalkAbout 250 has 14 FRS frequencies built in to it. These are FM UHF 2-way radio frequencies which differ from CB frequencies.

Hold in the PTT button while you turn on the radio. It will announce the frequency number. You can use the PTT button to change the number. Then press the Monitor (small possibly red) button to lock in your setting. The next number your radio announces will be the Code. Use the same method to change the code if needed. Then press the Monitor button to lock in your setting. Once you have set both your freq and code you can turn the radio off, then turn back on normally and use the radios.

Best regards.

I am trying to pair my motorola walkie talies


Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/SX700_userguide.pdf

You will need to program the frequency, code and Qt filter (if any) to match. For basic operation set the frequency and then set the code and Qt filter (if any) to off (zero).

Best regards.

Sub-Channels


Here is a link to a list of older TalkAbout user manuals. Use the pulldown menu to look at various models. In general, most of them program similarly by using the menu button to select the feature and the PTT button to lock in the change. http://www.giantintl.com/motorolafrsold.htm

Problem transmitting


Hello jayhawkrx,

Check the Continuous Tone Coded Squelch (CTCSS) settings on all the radios. (Note that some manufacturers refer to this feature as a Privacy Code or Quiet Code. The actual name of the feature may vary.) This feature encodes a low-frequency signal on your radio transmission. This signal is below the range of human hearing but can be detected by other radios. When the CTCSS feature is active your radio will ignore any signal that it receives that does not have the proper tone encoded on it.

In order for these radios to communicate, all of the radios need to be on the same channel and have the same CTCSS code programmed or the CTCSS feature must be disabled.

I suspect that CTCSS is activated on one of your radios but not on the other. This would result in the situation you describe.

Also take note that when using different brands / models of radios to communicate with one another that the CTCSS code numbering scheme may not necessarily be the same from radio to radio. For instance, CTCSS code 4 on the Motorola TalkAbout series actually corresponds to code A on the Motorola Sport models.

Best Regards,

Agent Ken

Motorola 250 manual


Hi,

I was made to understand that the 250 together with 270SLK, 280 & 289SLK all came out sometime last quarter of 1998. To my knowledge, all share the same basic features. The only difference is that the high end models feature built-in VOX, available colors, power/battery condition indicators, some other frills.

Like you, I couldn’t find any manual for a 250 but the user’s manual for a Motorola Talkabout T-289 is available here. Since most features are presumably the same, you can probably try winging it from the 289.

Here and here are nice articles about the 250.

Hope that this be of some help. Pls post back if this is of any use to you or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.
