Unhappy Reliant Electronics - TR-416 2-way UHF Radios

Hello all,

I'm a newbie to all this but I just purchased a set of used Racing Electronics radios. The radios themselves are the brand RELIANT ELECTRONICS, model TR 416.

Problem:
They will not receive a transmission.

What I've tried so far:
They seem to transmit fine, as the red light comes on during transmission.
I had a radio shop verify the frequencies are set the same. They are.
I called Racing Electronics and they were absolutely no help at all.

There is no programming software that I can find. They take a Kenwood style 2-pin plug.

It's like Reliant Electronics never existed, or just fell off the face of the planet.
Anyone have any idea where I should go from here?

Much appreciated,
Jerod.

There is "programming software" available which you can find with a simple Google search. Whether you are comfortable downloading from a Russian website though is another question entirely. The Kenwood/BaoFeng programming cables reportedly will work with the TR-416.

Thanks. I saw that link the other day. It didn't look legit so I didn't download it.I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and try it.

Is there anything else that could be keeping them from receiving?

Maybe the radios were programmed for use on a repeater. That would prevent them from hearing each other.

Thanks for the help. I'll see what I can do with the programming software (if it's even legit) and go from there.

Did you have any luck with the issue you were having with the Reliant radio. I'm having the same problem with mine. And like you said Racing Electronics was no help and I even purchased them from RE.

Have you tried contacting Racing Electronics to see if THEY have/sell the software? It seems they were the only company that sold that radio.
