My T5000 radios have a lot of static in them when talking to the other radio. They seem to work fine but you can't understand what the other person is saying because of all the static. The batteries are fully charged and these radios seemed to work fine last year during hunting season but for some reason are not this year. The other day we were using 1 of my T5000 and my buddies Midlands, once in a while the T5000 would work with a clear signal then the next time it wouldn't get anything. Is there anything I can do. I really like these radios, they are only a couple years old and I really don't want to have to buy new ones already!

Re: T5000 have a lot of static!
I think if you can´t undestand what the other person is sayin, and you think is working fine, the problem could be at the speaker, check if the speaker is clear of dirty or sand or any thing that has not to be there.
If you find any dirty or sand on you speaker, try to clean with a brush and giving some little knocks with a piece of steel

Turn the squelch down, and the RF gain all the way up.
You need to realize that some times, there is not a lot of noise out there. Right now lately there has been due to skip. But it does die down. When you hear a lot of noise for a while, then it goes away, it messes with your head. You don't hear anything, but that's because its quite out. I would test it by talking to some one on the radio. If you can hear them just fine even though you don't hear a lot of static, then its just quiet out.
Check your interference eliminator code (aka PL, private line, or code). It is likely set to zero (off) on the T5000s and set to a different number on the T4500s. They must match to work together. Otherwise the one with code turned on will not recognize the other one.
It sounds like the antenna wire may have come loose from the radio or the antenna - would be worth checking. Just remember, if you can't get in behind the radio, and you have to pull it, don't disconnect the wiring harness, or you'll need an unlock code to make the radio work again.
Constant static can be a sign of a bad or low battery. If the battery is known to be good, try the radios outside the factory setting to see if the problem persists. If you have no problem when you are away from the machinery, you may need to set your interference eliminator code to a number other than zero. This will turn your eliminator ON, which will block out the radio frequency interference caused by the machines.
If the problem persists outside of the factory, then you should try replacing the batteries. OR possibly just cleaning the battery contacts with a pencil eraser.
The method you are using for resetting the radio will take the radio back to the factory default settings. It will not solve the problems listed above. It will only reset the frequency and code back to the original settings.
A 22 channel transceiver is an American system call FRS/GMRS radios which are actually illegal in the UK and rest of europe. They use different frequencies completely and will not work together on you other PMR radios.
Mostly of this radios works in 12.5Khz channel spacing so the modulation will be 2.5khz, if the other radios are not for the same application, they could be a 5.0 Khz modulation,this could be the reason that you are heared quite.
Other reason is that you Microfone is clogged, or dirty, chech this.
