20 Most Recent Motorola Talkabout T6500 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio Questions & Answers


Take the radios back to a very basic setting with all special features turned off. If the radios have a Qt filter check to see it is turned off, and set your Code to zero (off) on both units. Also, check to see your battery is good in both units.

You will need to set the frequency and interference eliminator code to match one another on both radios. It would be adviseable to keep any special features such as call alert and Qt filter turned off (zero) until you are confident in adding them into the mix.

Instructions can be found on pages 15-18.

No, the TalkAbout family radio service/GMRS radios and the CP100 business radio have no frequencies in common. Sorry.

It is possible if you have a radio programmed to police or emergency frequencies, or better yet, a scanner. Your local electonrics store should be able to help you with this.

Here is a link to the user guide http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T65xx.pdf This radio does the basic FRS and some GMRS UHF frequencies. If your other radio is capable of these types of frequencies, you should be able to match the two.

Best regards.

It can talk with any radio that operates on the same frequency as it. These are what are commonly reffered to as FRS (family radio service) radios. The name brand does not matter, but the frequency does.

Motorola... | Answered on Jan 25, 2011


The TalkAbout radios are license-free and operate on FRS/GMRS frequencies intended for family use. It is possible using them in a business situation may be outside of the license-free perimeters. You would need to check further on this through a licensing company or the FCC (www.fcc.gov)

Here's a link to the Motorola TalkAbout Store: http://www.store.motorola.com/2-Way-Radios-Mobile-Devices-Products/b/2265993011?ie=UTF8&title=2%20Way%20Radios The T6500 is not a current model, but the models shown would talk with it, and work similarly.

Here's a link to another vendor we have had success with http://www.wirelesspro.com/ They show the T6500 on their website for sale.

Yes, other TalkAbout radios are compatible with the T6500. Most of this series of radios have the 14 FRS frequencies installed.

You will need to read about locking the keypad, page 20; also read about call tones and talk confirmation (roger beep) on page 25.

Here is a link to the user guide, reference page 22 for instructions on turning iVOX and VOX on or off: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T65xx.pdf (Double check you do not have the lock symbol showing while trying to change programming.)

Also, another phenomenon which can occur is when you unplug a headset or audio device while the radio is still turned on. This can leave the radio partially in VOX mode. You might try plugging in the device with the radio turned off. Then turn the radio on, use the device in VOX mode. Then shut the radio off and remove the device. See if it clears the radio's sense of having a headset plugged in.

A damaged jack can also cause the same problem.

Best regards.

Just read your message a second time. Is the sound following the release of the PTT button? If so, it is indeed the Roger Beep (aka talk confirmation tone). If holding in the minus button while turning the radio on does not turn it off, there might be something wrong with the radio, such as a one of the other buttons being slighty stuck. Or you have your keypad locked. To unlock the keypad hold the menu button in for 3 seconds until the lock icon disappears.

Another thing which will make a noise during or after transmitting is the low battery beep. You might check your batteries. Old, bad, poorly charged or defective batteries can cause this.

fyi: Some users might think the Call Tones are the Roger Beep.

Lastly, there is a PTT Timeout beep which will occur if you hold the PTT in for more than 60 sec while talking.

Hope one of these items is of help to you.

The T6500 is slightly different than many of the other TalkAbout radios where the + (plus) button turns the Roger Beep (aka talk confirmation tone) on or off.

T6500 will turn ON the Roger Beep when turning the radio on with the +, but to shut it OFF you must hold in the - (minus) button while turning the radio on.

Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T65xx.pdf You will find the instructions in detail on page 25.

Best regards.
