Hi Peter,

First of all, when your radio is not receiving, check first other radio it might be, not of the same channel/frequency/CTCSS/DPL/PL, and must be operating in a simplex mode,

If still not working, you can bring it to the nearest Radio shop in your place, to verify the receiving circuit,

Thanks have a great day,

Regards,
Jack,

Your Kenwood radio has programmable squelch. It is accessible through the software. However, if the squelch knob (pot) has been broken, it must be fixed or replaced. Move the control knobs back and forth, do either move more than say 1/16 of an inch? If so, they likely broke inside. You could open the radio, resolder the switch, which I called a pot and see if that works. If not, take it to a dealer or sadly, buy another radio.

try this: The only known way to get VFO mode to work again is to connect the radio to a PC with a kenwood-compatible programming lead and use the puxing 6in1 software to turn off the lock option.

I did a lot of digging around. Your FT-301 is a nice radio. However the service manual does not have the mic "pin out. " The Ham Forums do not have the mic wiring either. I did find that almost all mics are not wired the same as the Yaesu. Could you just buy a Yaesu mic? Sorry I cannot find this.

Even saying ICOM would help people to help you. That radio requires software and a programming cable adapter. It is new enough to do Narrow band. Best bet is to find an ICOM dealer to program it for you. That way, it will be on legal frequencies. Your unit is VHF, so it cannot talk to GMRS over the counter radios. It is a decent radio, we sold them and the battery life was good. Ask more if you want to know more.

Your scanner was also marketed as the GRE PSR-244, and it's nearly identical to the Radio Shack PRO-62. I couldn't locate a manual for the Commtel or GRE, but you download/print instructions for the PRO-62 here:

Make certain the AM/FM radio is off. You cannot squelch when it is on. Try adjusting again. If it does not stop the squelch noise, the switch is dirty or broken. To go further means taking it apart. You will try to "clean" the switch. Do you want to take it apart?

You should know better than to ask this in a public forum. It is ******* to increase the power on a CB radio. Try searching Google for that.

There may be a button on the headset that will un-mute it, try holding the button down while wearing it, it may announce un-muted.

Many police have gone to encrypted radio, so you may not be able to get that on most cheap scanners. even much more expensive scanners won't do it without a modification, but that is not legal to do that.

Try using the manual if you can't see any button that say time, or menu on it. That radio is subject to a lot of complaints, that is what you get when you shop for cheap electronics. Some buttons have to be held down for a few seconds to get into a hidden feature, like setting the time.

You might have to reset it, that is if it paired before with the same device. Know that Blue Tooth has different versions and some don't work with other versions of bluetooth. But your post sounds like it worked before you reset it, so it may just be that easy.

Radio frequencies are different from country to country. NZ will use different frequencies than Canada. Canada and the USA have agreements in place because they border each other on what freq. is used for what. NZ likely has its own list. Your radio is not programmable to NZ frequencies. Sorry!

Connect the headset to the charger as if you were charging it, but keep one side in your ear. Once connected to the charger, hold down the power button. It'll beep a few times and then stop. Disconnect from the charger. You can then turn the headset back on. This "procedure" clears the headset's memory,
