Motorola 2 Way Radios 3 weeks 3 days ago #3071

Talkabout T2xx Series

I have set the radios up so that there are no annoying button or call tones, this drove my cat insane. The beeps would also drive people nuts over a period of hours.
All 3 come with chargers and NiMH rechargeable batteries and can be run on 3 x AA alkaline in case of emergency. May be a good idea to have a blister pack of AA's in the box just in case.
The kit comes with 2 chargers, and each one has 2 USB mini pigtails - they will also charge a phone if your phone is USB mini.
Since they are NiMH batteries, a maintenance charge every three months is recommended. They should probably go home with someone like the car batteries do to be kept at 100%.

Frequency Data for Wireless launching system compatibility (I know WLCS uses encoded RF but just to ensure no possible interference...)

22 Channels available.
1-7 and 15-22 are 2W at 462.56 - 462.75Mhz
8-14 are 0.5W at 467.56 - 467.71Mhz.
Obviously the 0.5w channels will increase battery life.

39 Interference Reduction codes available - recommend using 21-39. The original 1-20 are analog and used by all old GMRS/FRS radios. 21-39 are new digital codes and should be less common.

Radios work great, next step is testing the PA system with 2 way radio dock. I'll dig up a speaker from my electronics stash and give it a try.
