Default Re: Post your questions here

Welcome to the forums!

The Cobra HH425LI is a combo GMRS/VHF Marine radio. In order for it to communicate with the Midland GXT1000, be sure it is in GMRS mode.

Also, this radio has 121 privacy codes with a possible 1815 privacy combinations. The GXT1000 has 142 privacy codes. Since these are used radios, the chances are high that one or more of them are set to specific privacy codes.

When purchasing a used radio, it is always a best practice to go through them and ensure they are at default settings. There is no one specific "reset" button on these radios. You will need to go through the manual for each of these radios learn how to set up, change and clear the privacy codes.

Of course, there are always risks when purchasing used products. However, from your description it is likely caused by one of the two issues above and both are relatively simple to resolve.

For an in-depth discussion on privacy codes, The Two Way Radio Show Episode 8 - Talking Publicly About Privacy Codes is a good source of information.
