Q. When I am in a vehicle my range seems to decrease, why?
A. If the Radio is being used inside of a vehicle the metal bodywork of the vehicle will shield a lot of the transmission to and from the radio. To improve transmission and reception it is best to operate the radio outside and away from vehicles.
Q. When I not receiving any transmissions, why?
A. Firstly check, your volume control, then if you still cannot hear the transmission, check to see if you have a CTCSS or DCS code set on that channel, if you do you will only be able to hear transmissions from other radios that have that same code set. If you turn off any CTCSS or DCS codes you will be able to hear all transmissions on that channel.
Q. When I am transmitting the person I am transmitting to cannot hear me, why?
A. Check that you are both on the same channel and both have the same CTCSS or DCS codes set. Also check that if you have duplex mode enabled that the other party has duplex enabled also.
Q. The batteries are not charging, why?
A. Storing batteries for a long period of time, without charging, will eventually make the battery unserviceable. This is because the battery eventually self discharges below the terminal voltage which will generally prevent the battery from being able to be charged again. Sometimes they may recover if left on charge for a few days, but not always. If NiMH batteries are to be stored for an extended period they should be stored fully charged and recharged once a month to overcome self discharge.
Q. Where are the repeater stations located?
A. There is a list of repeater stations across Australia on this web site. This list and the operational status of the repeaters can change so please check with the ACMA for the latest information on repeaters.
