Question about BellSouth 1080 wp (15 Channels) 2-Way Radio
Its hard to tell exactly whats wrong without some more detail. I am assuming that these are 15 channel FRS walkie talkies? If they are than what you have is 2 FM 2 way radios that operate in the 450 mhz region. FM is usually really clear at both close and far distances. With AM radios its possible for the transimission to be distorted at close distances. First you want to check if this is a transmit problem (tx) or a recieve problem (rx). The easiest way to do this is to listen to other peoples transmissions and see if you can undertand them and if they are clear. Push the monitor button or whatever function there is on that particular radio to turn the squelch off. What you want is to hear static so you will be able to hear other people talking on other handhelds that are using different tones than you or might be too far to break squelch. You want to hear everything. Check how other people transmissions sound..... if they are hard to understand like a transmission from you other handheld does. If the other radios you pic up sound clearer....try using yours again.... but give it some distance... The speakers in these thing are not the best to begin with. Try that out and let me know your results... try to desribe what your hearing in detail.... like "garbled" "distorted" "low audio" stuff like that so I get an idea of what your hearing. Try it out
