    The kenwood tk-3101 is operating on a channelized frequency,we cannot unlock the unit ,it is a fixed frequency,otherwise you can change the frequency by sending it to kenwood service centre near your location.

I can program my distance radios by holding button then turning on.but that dose not work on the 10x


Correct. The 10X by Motorola uses Dip Switches for both frequency and tone codes. Both are under the battery tray. As you look at it, the left switch which has 4 dip switches is the frequency. On the right is the tone board with 8 switches. You can match the Motorola Distance radios if you have the settings. The 10X has a lot fewer frequencies and tones to choose from. Try this link:

Frequency for Motorola MU24CVS UHF (4 Channels) 2-Way Radio


This radio has several available frequencies built into the unit:
1 - 464.5000
2 - 464.5500
3 - 467.7625 *
4 - 467.8125 *
5 - 467.8500
6 - 467.8750
7 - 467.9000
8 - 467.9250

You would need to read out each channel to determine what each of the 4 channels is programmed to. Reading out is easy on this unit. With the radio turned off, select the channel with the channel knob, then hold in the PTT button while turning the radio on, immediately it will tell you the frequency number, (if you want to change the freq you can use the PTT button to walk your way up through the numbers to the number you'd like), then if you press the monitor button it will lock in your chosen frequency and it will tell you the private line code (if zero it is turned off), then press the monitor button again to lock everything in. Do this on each channel and you will know how your 4 channel radio is programmed.

Note: This radio is a wideband radio and only a few were produced with narrowband capability. After Jan. 2013 you are required to use narrowband only in the USA. If your MU24 radio has two RED dots above the word Spirit it is narrowband on only frequencies 3 and 4. If your radio has no red dots on the label your radio is wideband only.

Best regards.

All the channels are locked out so I can not scan


Hi Loris,

First, you turn on the radio, then press Mon/Hold key, then press No. [1] key. if your scanner is programmed, you should see the frequency displayed on the screen, example: 162.9875MHz, also on the screen you will see L/O icon, press L/O key and it will no longer show, then press Mon/Hold key and you'll go to channel [2], follow the above steps until you've unlocked all channels that are programmed in your radio scanner, when complete, press scan and your scanner will stop on any transmission it receives.

If, however, you have not programmed any frequencies into your scanner, all you'll get as a frequency reading: 000.0000MHz, meaning you won't hear anything.

Programming frequencies is easy, but you need to have a hard copy of your favorite frequencies for your location, these can be obtained from: www.radioreference.com where every USA state is covered, just copy and paste into any word processor and print out.

You need to do the following to program.

Press the [Prog] key, then select the channel to program to, then enter the frequency (key by key) leaving nothing out, that is as it's printed on the frequency list including the [.] decimal point, then press [Delay] key, then press [L/O] key (if icon is shown on display), then press [Prog] key again to go to the next channel, continue to follow the above steps until you have enough frequencies programmed to listen to.

Only select frequencies for your location, as some will not be available even if in your state.

I hope I have been of help to you.

Cheers,
Peter

What does mon mean on your walkie talkie


Monitor. This is usually a button which will temporarily put your radio in monitor mode. This turns off any private line (PL code) you may have filtering your frequency. This allows you to hear all users on your frequency, which are in range of your radio.

Best regards.

I have a pro 95 dual trunk scanner & it says all


  • Hi, I can help.

  • You probably have all frequencies in that bank locked out and all other banks locket out as well so you are seeing "All Ranges Locked Out."

  • You should be able to just push the number of the bank you want to have active again and activate it. If you have locked out some frequencies just press "MAN" for manual and scroll up and down through all the frequencies and hit "L/O" and the L/O will change to l/o (lower case letters) indicating the frequency is no longer locked. This has to be done manually for every frequency as there is no "master unlock" function on this scanner.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Hi Dude

Presetting channels for radio stations is generally all the same on most systems. Select the frequency you want and then HOLD IN the preset button you want until it locks to the frequency into the new preset. Good luck, and happy presetting :)
