This button is the transmit call tone button. It is intended to ring the other radios in your group, much like a phone rings. It alerts others you are preparing to talk. Here is a link to the page with the user guides. See the SX700R for the most similar to your unit.

Hello mtnrvr,

The Motorola TalkAbout radios, especially the FR50 and FR60, are notorious for making a variety of beeps when you push buttons and activate various functions of the radio.

The beeps can be helpful when you are trying to operate the radio in low-light situations. But they can also be mildly irritating.

Sadly most models of TalkAbout do not provide any way to disable the beeps. I'd suggest not using this particular radio for covert surveillance missions.

Best Regards,

Agent Ken

The T4500 is a stripped down version of the TalkAbout radios, it does not offer an option to turn the Roger Beep on or off. Sorry.

SOURCE: I have the motorola talkabout

I had a similar problem - my Talkabouts would not transmit - after checking the interference codes, qt, etc, it turns out the rechargeable batteries weren't able to handle the 1-watt mode. I switched to another FRS channel that only transmitted at .5 watts, and that seems to have cured the problem, but the range is probably reduced. With another set, I chucked (recycled) the rechargeables and placed 3 new AAA's in and it worked like a champ for a long time. Hope this helps

None of the buttons will solve this issue.

A repeating low tone is heard when you press the PTT if your battery level is low. You may have a bad or poorly charged battery. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so the first place this shows up is when pressing the PTT. A quick way to check this is to swap batteries with a known good radio and see if the problem switches to the other radio.

Battery tips: Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser to remove the film caused by hand oil. Always charge your battery with the radio turned off. And be certain your charger is plugged into an outlet that is not connected to a light switch shutting off power. Batteries last approx. 2 years. Check your battery's date code to see its age. (3 or 4 digit number, first one-two numbers are the year, second two are the week of the year. example: 1132 would be 2011 the 32nd week)

If the above does not solve your problem, you should see your local Motorola dealer, or a nationwide repair center for more assistance. Current flat rate repair on this style unit is typically around $69.

FYI: Your buttons are likely top button = monitor/sticky monitor and the bottom button could be hi/low power, scan or one of several other features. Each button has a short and a long press option.

Best regards.

Can you stop motorola radio from beeping each time talk button is pushed


Nope...That beep lets you know that you can commence talking. If you start talking before you hear the beep, whoever you're talking to will not hear everything you say.

Motorola may be able to tell you if you call them, but they may refuse.

If your radio has a front display, you can put it into test mode to see what firmware it has. If it is 5.44 or higher, then it is FlashPort.

You access the service menu by pushing the button with two dots (on the side above the PTT) 5 times quickly after the power-up beep. If you have no front display this is useless.

The milk frother is making the milk spit out of the jug and not producing any froth it used to be fantastic.


Check the end of the frother,ensure the center is protruding.
If not remove the lower end of the frother and push the center towards the end and click it into place.
This is a very common problem.

Muting the sound


Hi,

The sound produced by a Motorola radio when the mike is keyed refers to the "Transmitting Call Tone" which is another feature other than the "Interference Eliminator" or the "Roger Beep" feature.

On most Motorola GMRS/FRS TalkAbout radios, setting the "Call Tone" to 0 disables the feature. This is done with the radio ON by pressing on the "Menu" button 3 times which will result in the display showing the current Call Tone setting (flashing) and the letters CA; pressing on the <- or +> buttons will change selection (you will also hear the different Tones), select 0 (it may be up to 5 or 10 depending on the version). Press on the "Menu" or "PTT" button to set, save and exit.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Roger Beep


Hi Helen,

On most Motorola radios, to remove the roger beep, while powered on, you need to press the menu button until the Roger Beep indicator in the display starts to flash. Press on the + or - to change status. Press on the PTT to save and exit.

Hope this be of some help. Pls post back if it worked or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
