I bought Cobra model before. Range is 1KM. Saying can go up to 5km or 10km is bullshit. Cost me RM200

I bought another pair is Kenwood TK-3107. Range up to 5KM(straight line). Tested up to 2KM in taman, expected because a lot of building blocking. Cost me RM250. rclxms.gif

Anyway, what is your purpose use for?

How far from the base to the beach? Is the base inside the jungle?
If jungle, it is hard to receive, got lots of tree blocking the frequency.

You can always try lelong. But we discuss the matter before and we suspected it is imitation. But IMO, performance is not bad. I am the one who is using it

I tell. If you want cheap 1, get it from lelong. Get it from online. If shop, they will charge you DOUBLE of the price.

Example, the small motorola. You can get a pair for RM200 online, but shop they selling RM200 per unit. smile.gif

If you want KL, then go to lowyat. Or arrange with the seller to COD at kl.

OT: Anyway, what camp is it? Where where? tongue.gif

But Motorola has limit frequency. I do not know much about walkie talkie. A friend of mine who work at motorola, I ask him Kenwood & Motorola which is better. He said Motorola is very strong. You can throw from 3rd floor and it wont break at all. Kenwood you can set more wide frequency where Motorola has only limit frequency

its depend on the frequency range... if for public use, it have the range... for military use, it have another range...

all the frequency can be done thru the programming, my company selling and maintaining motorola walkie talkie for customer... they can program any frequency into motorola and able to access into any frequency easily, but it may involved illegal issues and license issues...

Various brands are good ones...icom, kenwood, yaesu, motorola. But they don't come cheap. Programmable frequency types (UHF,VHF) minimum 500+ per unit. As long as you get from authorised dealers, warranty one year. Please do note that the usage of these freq are governed by MCMC and you need a license to use them. Get a high powered one, example 5W or more. Better TX/RX. If you need spashproof or mil specs, be prepared to fork out 900+ to 1K+ per unit.

FRS types like those motorola talkabout do not require you to get a license. These are normally sold as pairs. Most communication shops sell them.

Again, get a license if you're using VHF/UHF...else please stay off the airwave.

No need license if u use CB band (477MHz).
477MHz is a legal frequency. Other than 477MHz, it is consider illegal frequency without applying license from MCMC.

I have a question to ask. If I buy motorola walkie talkie, not in pairs, different models, am I able to tune in to the channel where both motorola can communicate? And how about tuning into walkie talkie of different brands such as motorola and kenwood?

I assume you mentioning about those powerful 1 like VHF and UHF. Can both brand are set into same frequency.

While those smaller 1, I have tested on my cobra with motorola, can connect as we both set into same channel and same privacy code.

I tried on my 2.5watt cobra to connect into my 4watt kenwood, can't. sad.gif

Ahaha.. My dad used to have one motorola walkie talkie. I think it's the smaller wattage models. It only has a channel dial 1 to 9.

Aww... for your case of cobra and kenwood, is there no way to link them together? Lol..

1st of all, I am not really expert in walkie-talkie. Just did a survey here and there and know a little bit only.

I am not sure. As I said, my Kenwood is UHF(Ultra-high frequency) and is set at 477MHz, maybe it is because of UHF and 477MHz, that is why my cobra can't connect. When my cobra send signla, Kenwood got response but I can't listen anything. LoL.

Yes. It is worth buying. Coz I ask before, the price is around RM400-RM450.

Anyway, just to tell you that this motorola is better to use in wide/open area. Not jungle like what you mentioned as you said your based at pangkor.

Used this motorola at Sunway Lagoon before. Not bad I would say

1 watt means its transmitting power. 1 watt is not very high, but higher than most cheap walkie talkie that you can get for RM100 a pair. Those cheap ones have 0.5W only.

The answer is simple as: you get what you paid for. Aztech walkie talkie are much cheaper than other renowned brands such as Kenwood. Last few years, I managed to get a pair of Aztech walkie talkie for clubs for only RM105. Of course, the performance is just so so despite their large range specifications.

How to solve: Buy a better walkie talkie. Or avoid using it in areas with lots of interference (which not very possible). Btw, the above mentioned RM240 walkie talkie look quite good.

RM199 is for a pair right? Good ones can cost hundreds for just one piece.
4.5 KM is maximum range. That range is calculated assuming there is no interference in an open space. In reality, we have so many objects blocking the signal and interfering radio signals.

Your PMR5000 has CTCSS. You still have your manual? Better not lose it because Aztech has stopped producing walkie talkies and hence they do not provide relevant information officially.

Your that kenwood can't lar. You need to set frequency so that you can use your own private channel. But BEAR IN MIND, setting frequency you need to have license. Public Frequency is only 447/477(I forgotten liao) mhz.

I wanted to know also. That button is actually to make the signal or voice clearer. Example, you can hear the person voice properly, click that.

But heck, how do we know when signal is coming in? laugh.gif

instead of usign all this frs radios, with 0.5w and 1w radios

why dont go into amateur radio, handheld unit can go up to 7watt ...

now thats on a handheld, if u go for mobile unit, you can hit up to 75w

but this all will depend on the antennas that u have got ... with a good antenna, u can hit 30km no prob

me in cheras - pandan indah, with 10w with a 3.5db antenna i can hit shah alam clearly ...

so anyone interested in amateur radio or ham radio?

Am sure will need to take up some license before having all those.
Going through those exam is easy for like engineer? Not sure

I play walkie-talkie for the fun of it, and for my scouting activities, only for within the base only. If outdoor, no choice but to ask my state amateur radio team to help us already. Like Jota, 9M2HK

de noisy button... u press de noisy button n at de same time, twist de channel... u'll b able to hook any channel being used nearer u... u can hear them but u can call them...

if compare wit Kenwood TK-3107 n motorola GP328 n GP300. Motorola is much more better, althou TK-3107 n GP328 n GP300 can communicate wit each other.
but GP328 n GP300 can perform much more better than TK3107.

I work as part-time event security. i recommend GP328 but de price for 1 unit cost bout RM1K++ for new set. TK3107 is cheaper, bout RM3++ to RM4++.

A friend of my worked in Motorola, don't know what engineering post liao. He said, Kenwood functions is much better than Motorola, more wide as in frequency, etc. I can't explain as he explain to me I don't understand a SINGLE thing laugh.gif

But Motorola is very long lasting. After every production of each walkie talkie, they will go as high as 4th storey building and drop it. That is one of the QC test of that walkie talkie. So, Motorola is as hard as a brick? laugh.gif


Btw, TK3107 is so cheap? I ask from the distributor, they quote me RM700 per unit sweat.gif Original of course

A friend of my worked in Motorola, don't know what engineering post liao. He said, Kenwood functions is much better than Motorola, more wide as in frequency, etc. I can't explain as he explain to me I don't understand a SINGLE thing laugh.gif

But Motorola is very long lasting. After every production of each walkie talkie, they will go as high as 4th storey building and drop it. That is one of the QC test of that walkie talkie. So, Motorola is as hard as a brick? laugh.gif
Btw, TK3107 is so cheap? I ask from the distributor, they quote me RM700 per unit  sweat.gif  Original of course
But, for the cost of the equipment is sweat.gif
Couldn't afford for this heavy hobbies blush.gif
*
actually when u mention "more wide in frequency" thats doesnt make sense ... thats likk bandwidth spacing ... the higher the frequency the larger the bandwidth spacing ... its does not rely on the model nor brand to do that, it depends on the frequency band itself ... hf, vhf or uhf ... now all i can tell u is that motorola rocks, as its radio is of military standards ... but original ones from both comp are good, as they adhere to military standards ... very durable and tough ... tk3107, is not that tough ... compare that to a gp328 ... the gp328 can wack the shit out of it ...

and yeah the cost of starting up the amatur radio hobby is not cheap, u can start cheap too, thats by using china made units like those tk308, or tk508 for less than RM300 ... a handheld of course ... like some sets from thai too, like spender 141 .. for bout RM450

but this is in MY, i have tried getting sets from SG, eport units, a Yaesu VX170 is about 400 bucks only ...

Erm, about this, I serious don't know any shit about it. I am sorry if I used the wrong term blush.gif Thanks for clarify it.

If I start without license, will I get caught? tongue.gif

I tried asking in Singapore, some of them gave me a look and just said only for export, etc. Somemore have to demand for my passport, and the price seems like not cheaper than here. BUT, most of the distributor are from there right?

I own 2 sets of motorla.. T4920 model (range 5km,) and 1 se of T5XXX (8km) model (can't remember), the very common ones available in the shop. easy to set. There are 8x 20 channels to set, even my children also know who to set it.

As what they claim to be, however, in SG, there are so many building around, and many blockages.. However, my friend did tried >1km across a resevoir, loud and clear. Within building itself, seems ok as I had tested, not sure any blind spot. My colleague bought 1 8KM set inclusive of charger and head phone for SG$100.

Right in open space, don't see any problem..

yes.. n u can use it only if u r an amatuer radio operator. there are nationwide amatuer radio repeater n it is link to each other. this will enable u to talk to other amatuer station from north to south. even now amatuer class B also can operate the hf 10meter bands. this would make u to contact other amateur station in the other side of the world.

The answer is simple as: you get what you paid for. Aztech walkie talkie are much cheaper than other renowned brands such as Kenwood. Last few years, I managed to get a pair of Aztech walkie talkie for clubs for only RM105. Of course, the performance is just so so despite their large range specifications.

How to solve: Buy a better walkie talkie. Or avoid using it in areas with lots of interference (which not very possible). Btw, the above mentioned RM240 walkie talkie look quite good.

Planing to get a Motorola T5720 that cost around RM 200 - 220 a pair in LYP. Wish to seek opinion here, had any user here tried b4 using this Walkie Talkie to communicate between 2 traveling cars on the highway. Is the reception acceptable or totally not usable.

yes, it can be accepted, loud n clear, i always use talkies to talk on highways, my n my frens like to explore around KL area, so its really important to have talkies, even tho we`re doing 140 km/h its still doing good, as long as stay close with reach other, but not few km away...

Looking for walkie talkie: Need Help

Use : Convoy, Outdoor activity

Budget : Under Rm500

Please suggest, I did a search and the more i read the more i'm confused by all the UHF VHF Frequency Watt. As there is America standard, Europe standard...now i just don't know what to get. My friend told me those black colour brick can receive anything..but he is no expert. What i need is a good piece of tool for convoy and outdoor activity and of course as a gadget lover...we always want the best, the smallest, the strongest...hahaha. I saw this Motorola EM1000 at Motorola website, It support up to 20 miles range but i'm not sure if it is compatible here in Malaysia. It's no point if only myself can receive the signal and also not sure if it's available in Malaysia. All i need is a good range, clear audio, compatible channel, please suggest one. Thank You very much.

guys,

do note that the distance-strength on most frs/gmrs walkie talkies are very deceiving. you can apply a general 15-20% rule on its advertised range as effective range.

i read that the weakness is also contributed by the fixed antenna which is usually weak.. unfortunately, under regulation, modification of the fixed antenna is prohibited.. but some illegal antenna mod have shown to extend some 20-30% additional range.

for those who plan to use these walkie talkies on jungle trekking.. do note that vegetation absorbs the uhf/vhf frequency and will impact the performance of the walkie talkies.. so if you're driving across some thick forest/plantation estate.. severe signal loss will be anticipated.

don't read too much into the "## miles" range.. just try to get a higher wattage unit.. avoid those less than 1-watt unit, at most, it's classified as "toys"..

i've got a 5-watt unit that runs on regular aa batteries.. it's a midland unit(gxt900) and it's advertised range is a ridiculous.. 30-miles. haven't tested it on our local terrain though.

am glad that the unit(s) weren't stuck at kastam when i got it shipped in from the states.. maybe they think it's like most of our local available sub 1-watt units.

in my opinion.. there're few good brands to take note as far as consumer grade walkie talkies.. midland, cobra and uniden (not particularly a fan of motorola though) and they prices are way way cheaper than what you can get them here..

my 5-watt unit(pair) is less than rm200(inclusive shipping).. and it's new!

like i've mentioned before.. apply the 20% rule.
i've not tested this unit but somebody did.. and the results are mind boggling!! between urban, suburban and line-of-sight-hilltop-to-hilltop..

2miles(3.22km) to 77miles(125km).. all stock parts and without any modifications..
but shall keep you guys posted once i get this pair on the field.. malaysian condition/terrain

For a 5watt handy .. on LOS, you could actually get around 30km .. but I don't believe it is legal here.. anyway, 5watt on regulat battery .. don't think it will last more than an hour on normal usage smile.gif

yeah.. 30km is about where the curvature of the earth will bend and loose line of sight(los).. but given a hilltop to hilltop.. the curvature may extend further.. the best test is to do it in vacuum, and in space *lol*

alot of things are not legal here if you asked me.. if you want to nitpick about legality and stuff, most of those motorola talkabout sold in blisterpacks locally don't even have a sirim sticker!

yeah, 5watt is the max for gmrs.. and some business handhelds only transmit at max 2.5watt. of course, am aware that gmrs is not under local regulatory. thus, everything is illegal.. even my frs is illegal here (462 & 467mhz band)

one thing for sure.. your understanding about regular batteries are a bit poor.. there're alot of rated usage by several users in practical conditions and they registered more than a day.. of usage.

an hour?!? are you still living in a cave? (carbon-manganese batteries, perhaps?). don't tell me that the batteries that i'm using is also illegal here.. *lol*

roger that.. 10-4


Added on July 6, 2009, 11:41 amhi,

don't know if this helps.. my "on-going" test thus far:

1. having one radio turned onto frs channel 13 and let it run.. listening to some on-and-off security sentry guards chat. started since saturday(4/06) morning, running it non-stop (night time, left it on and tucked under a pillow).. today, it's just 2 bar(out of 3, power wise) left.. and still going. i occasionally triggered the ptt button and transmit, without uttering anything over the mic.
update 1.. unit is still active.. as per pic below
update 2.. battery low indicator goes off at tuesday morning. perhaps 72-hours operational time before shutdown
[attachmentid=1062374]


2. another radio left to continuously scan all channel(42 total) non stop, using mid power(~2watt). started on saturday afternoon.. today, same thing.. only 1 bar(power) dropped.
update 1.. battery indicator on low(belum shutdown lagi) after 48-hours continuous non-stop scanning
update 2.. unit shutdown before midnight on monday.. results? 48-hours continuous non-stop scanning

note - i'm using gp 1600mah rechargeable on these right now. i have yet to try them on my 2700mah.

that's all.. for the midland gxt900.
so, for wiraone.. why la ketuk others when you yourself have no idea? 1 hour konon.. doh.gif

occasionally .. muhaa..haa.. I believe that wouldn't consider as testing .. bring it out for a convoy and tell me how long it will last ..


Added on July 8, 2009, 9:09 pmAh .. forgotten .. nice 10-code you use there .. but .. I wonder who use it here wink.gif the law enforcement officers here don't use 10-code methink .. ah .. probably you picked it up from those CBers .. I wonder if there is active CBers here in Malaysia ..

perhaps you're just plain sore.. having a less-than-an-hour-runtime locally available frs walkie talkies that're both overly priced, expensive and lower powered & lower featured.. and don't have anywhere to vent that pissful frustration until you read about this gmrs unit.. and better units from midland/cobra.

.. this is sad, kilo sad i'd say (why don't you try therapy instead of convoy..? i gathered that you failed to read the reviews of this unit which are available in the web?).. matang s'kit la bachaa.

Added on July 6, 2009, 11:41 amhi,

don't know if this helps.. my "on-going" test thus far:

1. having one radio turned onto frs channel 13 and let it run.. listening to some on-and-off security sentry guards chat. started since saturday(4/06) morning, running it non-stop (night time, left it on and tucked under a pillow).. today, it's just 2 bar(out of 3, power wise) left.. and still going. i occasionally triggered the ptt button and transmit, without uttering anything over the mic.
update 1.. unit is still active.. as per pic below
update 2.. battery low indicator goes off at tuesday morning. perhaps 72-hours operational time before shutdown
[attachmentid=1062374]
2. another radio left to continuously scan all channel(42 total) non stop, using mid power(~2watt). started on saturday afternoon.. today, same thing.. only 1 bar(power) dropped.
update 1.. battery indicator on low(belum shutdown lagi) after 48-hours continuous non-stop scanning
update 2.. unit shutdown before midnight on monday.. results? 48-hours continuous non-stop scanning

note - i'm using gp 1600mah rechargeable on these right now. i have yet to try them on my 2700mah. 

that's all.. for the midland gxt900.
so, for wiraone.. why la ketuk others when you yourself have no idea? 1 hour konon..  doh.gif
*
err lwb no hard feelings but;

y dun u use a multimeter,
hook it to the antenna connector that is if the antenna is detachable thn scan, see how much power is used on ur low, mid n high. take note of that

whn u scan, the VFO does not change in power taken from the supply(battery) when rx simply cuz, there's no point in doing tat! rx does not depend on ur 'power' but more on the rxing capability of the antenna

then

get a fresh set of batteries then nw repeate the antenna routine thn tis time instead of scanning, press the ptt and see hw much power is used on low, mid n high then take note of that.

now

find an empty channel thn tx on 5w presumably shud be ur high? thn dun let go for a while, i might be wrong but the first thing u'd notice is the change of temperature, n fluctuations in power shown in the multimeter thn u tell us how long did the bar last..

in case there's no access to a multimeter, then dun bother, just test the time, the answers will be clear to all of us

tis is a forum noneed to go all bombing other ppl, we're sharing wat we knw as hams n nonhams in the technical fields together we all learn ok icon_rolleyes.gif

my 2 sens anyway but do tell us i'd like to knw hw it turns out

sorry, i don't have a multimeter and all that.. for validity, you can check with the fcc site on this unit (fcc id: mmagxt950).
yesterday, i did the following:

1. fully charged 4x1600mah aa batteries
2. turned on scramble mode
3. tunned into channel 15(a grms channel)
4. set trx strength to high(5 watt)
5. enabled vox
6. place the unit on a modified running fan (the sound triggered the vox and kept the radio on continuous transmitting.. trx symbols lights up all the time)

..results? after 3 hours... the unit no longer able to transmit properly and battery-low indicator alarm goes off. but the unit is not totally kaput
.. even in normal convoy/operation situations.. nobody would continuously transmit like that, it's like holding onto the ptt button non-stop (vox mode was helpful in this manner)

i believe a higher capacity batteries will do a little bit better.. but 1 hour?!?! (i still find it the lamest comment from such experienced by ignorant dude).

however, there're plenty of info about such units from midland (if you only search around you'd know)..

if you're a licensed radio operator.. you should very well know that consumer frs grade radio do not have removable antenna (this is different from business radios).. i find it shocking that you are not aware of this.

errrr did u juz wana shoot me or did u miss the bolded phrase?
and really the point of it is u see, itz a test situation correct? so u juz said u tx strength to high correct, but that means ure spending power on txing mah, thn how abt speaker power used for rxing leh? come on la itz juz a coment rite? ure making a big fuss over something which ppl comment if so i dun think u shud post anything tat requires feedback lo my 2sens anyway

it's quite clear that you're not a licensed radio operator and that you don't have the slightest clue about regulations that goes into the manufacturing of consumer radios..

otherwise, you wouldn't even have to say ".. if.."
if you can find a stock factory manufactured frs radio with a removable antenna.. i'll show you a stock factory manufactured car without a front seatbelts..

..you paham ka bacha? what is regulation? (ini bukan main tembak rambang la.. your 2sens suddenly jatuh nilai to 0.8sens kalo main lawak bodoh je)

LOL tis is really funny, i duno abt u but im feeling that ure attacking me rather personally juz cuz i ask for tests, to which ur response cud be well even more mature which is either "no i dun have the time to show this cuz itz all over the web (which i cant find on batt life they all said itz well tat wud be really good as a buying point)" or "alrite will update *so n so days*" but no, u chose to criticise a ham member which merely has made a remark on how long ur battery cud last,

THAT IS ALL!

oh well we're diverting off course here cuz if u wana talk abt regulation u shudnt even have shown us ur set in the first place la, and a lil deja vu but a similar discussion which turn into a lil hot happened google it bound to find it, where 1 guy talks abt regulations and turns out to be the 1 person tat is being ridiculous but oh well tatz there.


and if u really wana talk abt regulation mind i ask and ermm tis is really a genuine question, what are consumer radios? if ure talking abt those that are allowed to tx in commercial band or 477mhz thn, u go google la i'd not need to show u or tell u wan, itz rather common wan but if ure talking abt those motorola talkabt kinda thing, thn really dun hav la though their freq is usually 462.xxx

really frs or gmrs and cb are rather interesting topics in radio-ism but itz nt allowed here a lil wasted la but thn again, a lot of ppl has found ways to bring in those units tat can tx and rx on those 'illegal freqs.

and bro tis is getting really off hand le i'd nt reply u further in accordance of our own lowyat's rules and REGULATIONS and i hope u do the same. im juz gona say tis is juz a forum wat for la u go all bodoh sini bodoh sana?

and yalor im nt a licensed radio operator la im nt la ya happy? LOL oh well my 2sens drop to 0sen, still my sen rite?

cheers! icon_rolleyes.gif

i have a reason to believe that you've a handicap at reading/listening..

please read post#107 and you wouldn't have to parrot(repeating) about legalities.. already stated it clearly there.

it's interesting that you brought up 'googling'.. should you actually know how to google, you wouldn't have asked those questions in the first place. (i noticed a lot of guys here are just too lazy to even do this)

this wiraone.. his remarks was nothing but retarded! he could've taken it abit more tactfully.. but i guess he can't tell the difference between an educated guess and an insult.

so please.. do yourself a favor, nobody is trying to attack you.. perhaps your lack of self-confidence is evidently displayed along with your user_id?

bodoh = stupid.. am i correct? (you should be proud that i'm addressing you smile.gif )

there aren't many choices around locally for handheld units.. the alternatives are brand such as, yeasu or icom (they're available locally as well)

i believe you're referring to those business walkie talkies..(bigger in size, bland-mostly-in-black design, rugged & more robust) than the consumer type (like the talkabout series from motorola).

unfortunately, for the sake of bulkiness(the sheer size and its weight), a lot of folks that i surveyed dislike the idea of carrying one ("makes one looks like an illegal dvd peddlers", said one).

when it comes to ordinary folks totting around something compact, lightweight.. perhaps cobra radios is fantastic. look at this.. (pictures courtesy of jonas of tech nudge live)

at most, they look like the old ericsson handphone but such size command more favorable to those that i asked/survey around.. they said that carrying such device don't look so bad in a mall or public places. unfortunately, cobra is not readily available locally.

i suppose, their job demands it as well? u see mall guard ah, ermm guards mah need to run la, under the rain la, noisy la n stuff like tat, n motorola like wat i said a few pages back, motorola is known for their ruggedness and loudness, daya ketahanan yang kuat so to speak, the only drawback is the price but when those management company buy, they buy in bulk suppose they get special offer? some ive seen even has the multi charger the 1 like u see the police station use wan, but if u dun need the xtra ruggedness mayb opt for something cheaper? but i strongly object the aztech wan, hmm duno la like.. kinda bad quality, bad tx distance, and bad battery life, but perhaps was the 1 i tried mayb others not so bad, but i think aztech stopped producing those d? not sure though blink.gif

you sure got a curious sets of observation there.. checking out police's walkie talkie chargers..
yeah, your objection on the aztech unit is well noted.. so far this is the only brand that goes all the way with certifications (sirim, etc).. i can't even get a 100% confirmation that some motorola talkabout sold in malaysia is 100% legal.

i guess that's the frustration some of us here will have to bear.. either pay for expensive business radios or end up with really sub-standard toys like the aztech's..

those used by guards/construction workers/etc are quite heavy.. i'm not sure if it's an isolated case, i can hardly hear the voice from the speakers on those motorola.. it's not the statics, it's like the voice cracked up (not sure if it is also due to the microphone from the transmitting unit)
