When I press the talk button (PTT) my radio’s display will shut off and restart. Why does this happen? The radio will shut down to protect itself. This will happen when the radio is unable to get sufficient “energy” from the power source. 1. Make sure your battery is fully charged. 2. Most batteries even when well cared for may still need to be replaced after a few years. 3. If you have a voltmeter, you can check your battery for DC voltage. If you read 6 volts or below, the battery may have to be replaced. The closer to 0 volts, the worse the condition of your battery. Can I leave my radio on the charger constantly? We recommend only leaving the radio in the charger for the amount of time it takes to fully charge the battery. Leaving the radio on charge for a few extra hours will not have an impact. However, leaving the battery to charge for more than a few days at a time can contribute to premature wear on your battery. How do I store my radio to help protect my battery life? If you will be storing your radio for extended periods of time, it is recommended to remove the battery from the radio (some models). Leaving the battery attached to the radio will allow the radio to drain the battery slowly over time. Over a long enough period of time this can cause the battery to reach a state of discharge that it cannot recover from. How much range can I expect from my radio? Transmit range can vary widely with the same radio. Using the stock antenna at ground level you may only get a mile or two of transmit range. The same radio (more specifically the antenna) up at elevation can transmit much further as the signal is not obstructed or reflected by buildings, trees, hills, etc.
