Question about Motorola Radio Communications
I have a couple of T3 radios. suddenly one Radio doesn't receive (or the other doesn' transmit). If I switch the 'monitor mode' on I can hear the voice! In normal mode I cannot get the 'call tone' or any signal at all. The opposite way works perfect. Can you suggest?
Check your Private Line (aka interference eliminator code, tone code, PL, quiet call). It sounds like you have one radio set with a PL setting and the other one is open squelch (no private line). All settings for frequency and PL code need to be the same between the two radios.
We don't have a manual for the T3, but I am attaching one for the T5, which may be similar. http://www.motorola.com/web/Business/Products/Two-Way%20Radios%20-%20Unlicensed/_Documents/TLKR-T%20series/Static%20Files/T5%20Manual%20EU.pdf

Your PL or DPL is not set correctly.
Check your owners manual, you can set this with the user buttons on the radio.
Press and hold the PTT button while turning the radio on. this will put the radio in the programing mode.
Be careful, if you do not know how to set the PL DPL or frequency you could make the problem worse.

You have your interference code eliminator set differently on the two radios. Here is a link to the T5 user guide (sorry I didn't have a link to the T3, but they should be very similar): http://www.gouldelectronics.co.uk/product-downloads/T5-20Manual-20EU.PDF

Check your programming. The frequency and code must be identical on the two radios. Here is a link to the user guide http://www.gouldelectronics.co.uk/product-downloads/T5-20Manual-20EU.PDF
The description you give is indiciative of the code being set differently between the two radios. For basic operation set the code to off (zero).
