Constant tone on an HT1000

I recently purchased a "C" model HT1000 from government surplus. Being that I have not had the chance to get it programmed yet, I cannot tell if this is a programming issue or a radio issue. When I tune the radio to any channel BUT 1 or 11, a constant tone is heard. Button presses or switch position does not affect it. Any ideas?

You will get a constant tone on any channel that isn't programmed. it sounds like the previous user ha a freq programmed on channel 1. Channel 11 is strange, but possible. Usually guys program these radios in order.... they don't put 2 freqs in soo far apart from each other..... I would expect channel 1 AND 2 to have freq programmed in them.... but channel 1 an channel 11 is strange... but possible. Anytime you don't fill up all the channels on these radios (commercial radios in general) you will get a constant tone on the channels that don't have anything programmed in them. Program the radio and your good to go. If you don't program freqs into al the available channels, expect to hear that "constant tone" on any unprogrammed channels. The channels that you hear a tone on do not have a freq programmed into it. Its normal. Good luck

I have a HT1000 with a remote shoulder mic and a attached 3.5 listen only ear piece. How do I adjust down the volume of the identifier alert tone when I key up the mic. The volume control works for general...

In the programming software their is a field that allows you to either turn off the alert tones or make them lower then your volume level. Most of the time if any of my customers are using a ear bud or headset I turn off all of of the "beeps". Michael

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 turns on but keeps beeping

The constant beep means that the channel you are on is not programmed. Try moving the channel knob to other channels. If it stops beeping, you are on a channel that is programmed. It is possible that none of the channels are programmed though.

Take it to a motorola dealer and they can program it for you.

CAN THE HT1000 PORTABLE 16 CH. BE PROGRAMED VHF NARROW BAND,IFSO WERE CAN I GET IT DONE

The HT1000 change to narrowband depends on the generation of HT1000 you have. If a model made since the year 2000 (or so) it should be able to be either programmed or converted. If it is a pre-2000 (or so) model, it will not be capable.

Programmable narrowband can be done by any authorized Motorola dealer. Conversion to narrowband requires components in the radio to be changed by a qualified electronics technician using approved methods, not necessarily available at every dealer.

Check with your local Motorola dealer to see if they can help you with programming or conversion. If not, repost your model number in a question here on FixYa and we will let you know which scenerio you are facing and give you some suggestions on where you can have it done.

Best regards.

Constant noise, no squelch, not receiving signal

What you are describing is sometimes called motorboating, and typically indicates the radio needs repair. Without hearing the sound we cannot be certain of your radio's issue. There is also a slight chance you have a battery problem (as in a bad or defective battery). Try a known-good battery on the radio and see if the problem goes away. You might consider contacting the seller to see if they will assist you.

Best regards.

Motorola mtx 8000 radio

Yes. That is a strong possiblity. Many models of Motorola will emit a tone when not programmed, or by placing the channel selector on an unprogrammed channel.

HT1000

Hi bonkuman,

To my knowledge the Motorola HT1000 is not a trunk system radio, it is as a "conventional" 16 channels two-way radio. Motorola classifies this radio as intended for Government & Enterprise. In my country, we call them "Commercial" radios as oppose to "Amateur" radios. In a way, yes they may be termed "professional" as their claimed performance and durability exceeds those of other radios. Incidentally, the Motorola HT1000 has been discontinued and was replaced with the PR1500.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
