The HT1000 that I am
You are transmitting with the correct tone on the correct frequency. Either the tone, frequency or both are incorrect on receive. Try pressing the squelch button while they are transmitting. If you can hear them, your tone is incorrect. Either way, you likely need to take it to a two way radio dealer who can program that radio. Call first, it is an older radio, not every shop can program it.

It might have to be a really old computer, such as an IBM AT/XT with -- the kind with a monochrome display and 5.25" floppy drives running MS-DOS -- or possibly a newer PC might work. Alternatively, you'll need about $20 and someone to do the job for you. Just look for an online auction that offers programming services. Most importantly, make sure your FCC license permits you to use the frequencies that you program into your radio.
MTS2000 strange tone? and question about top display.
This radio was programmed to work on a networked radio system. They are called many things, but "no sys" means it does not detect the radio system it was programmed for.

The PTT or talk button tone is telling you the radio cannot "connect" to the system.

More specifically, all existing Part 90 radio systems operating in the 150-174 MHz and 421-512 MHz bands have until January 1, 2013 to convert those systems either to a maximum bandwidth of 12.5 kHz or to a technology that provides at least one voice path per 12.5 kHz of bandwidth or equivalent efficiency."

Describe your problem exactly. Is the radio set up for any particular frequency and does it turn on? What is the model of the radio that you have?

You would need a programming cable as well. This is more likely than not beyond your current level of skill. This software is licensed by Moto, complex and not easy to get over the web.
