They shut off when keys are micd k7gem1000
Yes they bear the Motorola brand, but look for where they were made and you'll find CHINA.
These are made en-mass under license for a fixed price and of DUDIOUS standard, firstly like any radio made in China, they eat batteries if they are hand held, Oricom is another terible brand both HH and base versions.
Support is availabe if you speak the language, manuals are available in CHINGLISH, and problems with Chinese made radios continue to fill sites like this, looking for help.
I too got stung with chinese made monsters, I was stupid enough to buy three different brands and within 3 months of working them, they began to fail, and the warranty is useless outside of China.
Sorry, Brian but you like myself have a lemon.
Best advice, do as I did, spend a few extra dollars on ebay and buy well known brands made anywher but China.
