Hi all,

I have recently purchased a number of handheld UHF radios of e-bay,

While most of them work quite well there are 2 of the radios that are locked to a specific channel which cannot be changed.

Can anyone shed some light on how I can unlock these radios.

One is a Motorola Talkabout T 5539 which is locked on channel 4 and the other is a Digitor T-584 which is locked on channel 15.

I can communicate to each of these radios from the car mounted unit on their respective channels.

We are taking some of the boys from my son's footy team away camping and we wanted to be able to have some sort of communication between cars.

cheers

Think I'd be checking back with who ever it was you purchased them from. I did a search for Motorola Talkabout T 5539 and came up with ZERO. Sounds like you might have some 'duds'.

Digitor is a Dick Smith brand. Call their Customer Support on 1300 660 054.

Give them the model number. See if there is a Catalogue number on the back somewhere, maybe under the batteries, a single letter D followed by 4 numbers (not T-584, but that may help them).

They may also have some clues on the Motorola as that brand of handheld UHF is sold thru DSE stores too.

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

Hi all, the radios are imports that are not supported by Motorolla Australia.
It is going to be to much hassle to unlock them so we have sorted them out and the channel that the majority are on is the one we will use.

My understanding is that channel 15 would be an acceptable channel to use.

cheers
