Default Ht750

Hi all new here to the forums. I picked up four HT750 units used. Guy said they were used for about two years and boxed up since 08. I just got them for my kids to play around with going fishing etc. I just got around to plugging them up they all appear to charge fine.

Turn them on I get two beeps green light flashes. None of the four radios will communicate. They are all the 4 channel units original date writting inside is 2006. When the ptt button is pushed the red light lights up. I do not hear any feed back on any of the channels. Channel 4 on all of the radios gives off a loud beep.

Is there any reason why none of thee radios will communicate with each other?

Thanks iin advance for any help.

They were either not programmed the same or are programmed for repeater channels and without the repeater, they won't talk to each other. That is, unless one of the buttons is programmed for talk-around. Either way, they'll need to be reprogrammed to properly licensed frequencies if you want to be legit.

Are they VHF or UHF? They could technically be programmed to MURS if VHF (license free but with certain restrictions) or GMRS (license needed though) if UHF.

From what I can tell they are UHF 450-512. How much is the programming and how much for the license? Sorry for the newbie questions. I am trying to navigate my way thru all of the forums here. A lot to read and catch up on.

Thanks for the help.

No problem. They could be used on GMRS and the license costs $85, is good for 5 years and will cover your immediate family. Programming charges differ from shop to shop so I can't really say. I'm not even sure what the Motorola shop I work at would charge, sorry (isn't that sad!!)!

You might be able to find a local ham who could program for you for much less. Not sure where you live but where I am, plenty of hams are Moto enthusiasts and are capable of programming.

For GMRS, you can do the whole application online including payment.

General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) | FCC.gov
