    Ron, the Motorola FR50 is an FRS radio. The Talkabout MR350R is an FRS/GMRS radio. The channel assignments may be different between the two models, but they use the same FRS frequencies, so yes, they should be compatible. What you need to do is to check the Owner's Manual for each model and match the assigned frequency for each channel on the FR50 with the corresponding assigned frequency for each FRS channel on the MR350R, set each radio to the channel with the same frequency, and the radios should be able to talk.

    Are the new Motorola Talkabouts like the MR350R compatible with the older FR50's?

    Hello there,
    We have plentty of Motorola radios HT 1250 vhf portable, we are using these radios in talkaround, and would like to introduce a repeater to swicth to duplex mode. The repeater that we have available for this operaction is a Kenwood vhf fm tkr 750, the frequency range is the same as portable radios. However, I´m wandering with we could possibly face a compatibility combining the two models.
