Question about Motorola Talkabout T5320 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio
Posted by Anonymous on
Could be a sign of a bad battery. Static is a good indicator of a rechargeable battery nearing end of life.

Check the Continuous Tone Coded Squelch (CTCSS) settings on all the radios. (Note that some manufacturers refer to this feature as a “Privacy Code” or “Quiet Code.” The actual name of the feature may vary.) This feature encodes a low-frequency signal on your radio transmission. This signal is below the range of human hearing but can be detected by other radios. When the CTCSS feature is active your radio will ignore any signal that it receives that does not have the proper tone encoded on it.
In order for these radios to communicate, all of the radios need to be on the same channel and have the same CTCSS code programmed or the CTCSS feature must be disabled.
I suspect that CTCSS is activated on your T5530s but is not enabled on your T5320. This would result in the situation you describe.
Also take note that when using different brands / models of radios to communicate with one another that the CTCSS code numbering scheme may not necessarily be the same from radio to radio. For instance, CTCSS code “4” on the Motorola TalkAbout series actually corresponds to code “A” on the Motorola Sport models.
Go Ahead. Use Us.
