motorola em1000 not transmitting/receiving

so i just took the radios out of the package and charged them. one of them will pick up a weather channel, the other not so much. but when i try to use the two to communicate with one another, even on the same channel/code the call tone doesnt go through, nor voice when trying to talk.

any suggestions?

Did you get the radios from us? If so please give us a call 1-800-584-1445 or send an email!
