Question about Midland Radio Communications
Not on FRS. FRS has only one power level and it's set to low.
GMRS ERP output on the 1050 is approximately 0.4w low; 1.5w mid; and 3.07w High according to operator blogs.

This radios has a Reference Xtal, dropping the radio, could cause that the xtal goes out of frequency, this means tha the radios has a frequency error and the range of opearatin seems to be reduced or even null. With out knowlegement and equipmente, there is nothing that you can do.

There could be three (3) reasons why the display shows the battery icon at the top left side of the LCD display:
1. weak/undercharge/discharge batteries;
2. dirty/corroded/loose battery contacts/terminals; and/or
3. internal fault with the electronic sensing for battery level/state.
Corrective measures would require:
a. replace/recharge batteries. The rechargeable batteries need at least 12 hours of charging time;
b. clean, scrape, tighten (need to bend a little more towards the battery terminals) the spring/contacts of the battery holder;
c. (on the internal fault) your best bet might be to seek the services of a professional electronic technician since this would need familiarity with electronic components, their circuitry and diagnosis, perhaps a bit of soldering and the use of a DVM.
On the other hand, if the "low" is the "L" icon at the bottom right side of the display, this would indicate that the radio's transmit power setting (H/L - high/low). Transmit power level can only be changed in Channels 1-7 & 15-22. The radio will also auto change to lo power when batteries are weak.To switch to high power, press on the Menu button thrice or till "Pr" icon shows, press on the up/down to select H or L. To save & exit, momentary press the PTT.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

Usually the output power is adjustable from 10% to 100% in 10% steps relative to the full output power rating.

Check the "code" (interference eliminator code) on the FR60 and set it to off or zero. It appears from your description the Cobras do not have "code" turned on. Refer to your user guide to find the instructions for turning off the code. (As of this date we have not found an FR60 manual posted online.)
