20 Most Recent Midland GXT500 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio Questions & Answers

The short answer is yes. The long answer is: The problem sounds like the reference oscillator has drifted off frequency. You need to take the radio to someone who can do this for you. Look for a local HAM operator and ask him who could do it for you. A service centre probably can't these days, as they really only swap things out these days.

Unless you know what you are doing, you are likely to render the radio into a recyclable item.

I think you meant 70-0351c?
I believe this is a 60 watt transceiver. So if you remember ohms law P=IxE or power equals amps times volts so 5 amps times 12 volts equals 60 watts. Use a 5 amp fuse.

Yes. They call it silent operation.
To set SILENT OPERATION, press the MENU button until the display shows a "bP" icon. Select "on" or "oF" by pressing the s\t buttons and push the PTT key or MENU button.

Not on FRS. FRS has only one power level and it's set to low.
GMRS ERP output on the 1050 is approximately 0.4w low; 1.5w mid; and 3.07w High according to operator blogs.

There are only 2 wires for the speaker. It doesn't matter how they are connected to the radio. Switching the wires will not make any difference.

I would say no, it's not repeater capable for widespread use. After taking a look at a photo of this radio, I don't see any buttons to program a specific frequency that would allow listening to a nearby repeater. The GMRS frequencies for this radio, probably in the 462.000 range, are preprogrammed and locked in. If you're lucky, you might discover a repeater in your area on the UHF band in this range - just for listening. It would require a FCC license under Part 97 of the FCC rules to transmit. The GMRS radios can be licensed under Part 95, mainly for family members to communicate with each other. Hope this helps.
