    If you buy a headset that has a PTT button on the cord you cannot get the Vox to work on the radio. A work around is to depress the PTT button (tape) on the headset then turn on the radio. You will see the Vox icon in the screen now.

    love your radios BUTT ! You need to make a approx. $50-$75 set like the ones you have BUTT do NOT have the vox feature....while hunting with my partners this gets turned on by one of us unknowingly and no one can communicate..it is a pain the the Butt!...sell a model that is quality butt WITHOUT VOX option..... just a simple press to talk is all we need...make it and we will buy it...

    Very helpful. Explains a lot more than the manual.

    Hi, my organization has about a dozen MS350R radios and they purchased throat mic headsets. I believe they are XTM880RD units. However the never activate VOX on the radio. PTT works find but can't get VOX to work at all.
    Did we buy the wrong headset? Best I can tell they are VOX units but the radios don't seem to recognize them as such.
    Any info would be appreciated.

    Hi Buddy, there are a number of factors that determine range. Here are some resources that can help.

    Great video what I need is to find out how to get the greatest range out of my two sets. Is there anything you can send me.
    Thank You

    Thank you very much.
    The bit about reverting to PTT by pressing the PTT button while in VOX mode - is not even explained in the Motorola Talkabout Users Guide.
    I was completely baffled as to what was happening for a couple hours - until I found this.
