Question about Motorola FV500 2-Way Radio
My Motorola FV500 can send transmissions without incident. BUT it has stopped receiving incoming messages. Any suggestions?
I'm with Neto on this one. It coul be just a problem with "tones". I'm not familiar with that exact model but check for a "monitor" button. If you have one on the radio... press it down.... this should open up the squelch completely. You should hear static.... thats what you want... basically you will hear everything that transmitted on that channel (frequency) regardless of privacy codes (tones). You can also do the same thing by turning the squelch all the way down to 0 ( as Neto was suggesting). The monitor button is more convient but if you don't have that function do as Neto said and turn the squelch down all the way. Once the squech is turned down or monitor button is engaged you should be able to hear everything transmitted on that channel including static (rushing sound). With the squelch turned down or monitor button pushed, try transmitting on the problem radio... if you can hear the problem radio easily with monitor button pushed or squelch turned down then the privacy codes (tones) are set differently on each radio. You want the privacy codes to be the same on both radios otherwise you won't hear any rx audio or the transmitted audio.
