Midland Radio Communications - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues

I think you meant 70-0351c?
I believe this is a 60 watt transceiver. So if you remember ohms law P=IxE or power equals amps times volts so 5 amps times 12 volts equals 60 watts. Use a 5 amp fuse.

Yes. They call it silent operation.
To set SILENT OPERATION, press the MENU button until the display shows a "bP" icon. Select "on" or "oF" by pressing the s\t buttons and push the PTT key or MENU button.

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.

There are only 2 wires for the speaker. It doesn't matter how they are connected to the radio. Switching the wires will not make any difference.

It is likely a fuse inside the radio that is open, or possibly some poor solder connections. I would call whoever you purchased them from and have them take a look.

It sounds like a damaged or dirty volume control. I have seen controls where the element inside the control snaps and this sounds like what has happened to your radio. You did not say if the squelch control was set open or closed. If what you are hearing is loud static, I would adjust the squelch control on the radio to see if it stops.

I would say no, it's not repeater capable for widespread use. After taking a look at a photo of this radio, I don't see any buttons to program a specific frequency that would allow listening to a nearby repeater. The GMRS frequencies for this radio, probably in the 462.000 range, are preprogrammed and locked in. If you're lucky, you might discover a repeater in your area on the UHF band in this range - just for listening. It would require a FCC license under Part 97 of the FCC rules to transmit. The GMRS radios can be licensed under Part 95, mainly for family members to communicate with each other. Hope this helps.

There can be a number of problems causing this. The most likely cause is something is wrong in one or both of the antenna lines.

Another problem could be that one of the radios has a broken connection at the antenna jack on the rear. I am sure that you will find the problem with one of them, not both, if you have the SWR and output power checked on both radios.

You did not say if you have tried contacting others from both radios. The one that can't talk to others has the problem.

Your volume control is damaged, or the ground connection has lifted. It should not be an expensive repair if you need to take it to a tech.

The short answer is yes. The long answer is: The problem sounds like the reference oscillator has drifted off frequency. You need to take the radio to someone who can do this for you. Look for a local HAM operator and ask him who could do it for you. A service centre probably can't these days, as they really only swap things out these days.

Unless you know what you are doing, you are likely to render the radio into a recyclable item.

It sounds to me that you have a defective battery. This can happen if a radio is left on charge or left uncharged for an extended period of time. I could be wrong but this is the most likely cause, especially if the battery is not a lithium one. They have this problem as well from time to time.

Failing batteries. Old batteries tend to recharge only partially and discharge rapidly.

Try Googling (midland)(gxt1050p)(manual) without parens.

Use the owners manual & check your set up. Problem still present, replace battery. May the force be with you.
