A. To identify the problem, note which headsets and radios are operating without an issue:
1. Bind the radio in concern with another good radio by following the binding procedure.
2. Test each headset with each radio in combination to confirm. As you perform this, make note of where the problem persists. It is a headset issue if the problem carries over to each device, and a radio issue if the problem is consistently on one device. For headsets, the most probable cause is damage, and the headset will need to be replaced.
For radios, identify which part of the radio is having issue:
1. Make sure the units are still bound and test the radio in concern to see if it can hear the good radio. If it cannot, then it's a speaker related issue, otherwise, go to step 2.
2. Test the good radio to see if it can hear the radio in concern. If not, then it's a mic related issue.
*For Yapalong-4000, if the radios work at a short distance but not after 50 meters, it could be an antenna related issue. This issue can be fixed by replacing the antenna.

A. You have two options; use a Push-To-Talk headset or mute the radio. PTT headsets provide a quicker means to stop input than the mute function (it takes about 1 second for the radio to mute after the button is pressed). However, muting is quieter for the rest of your group than PTT; PTT keeps you actively connected and the more users connected means more noise generated (happens with any radio, The best option for you depends on your situation. PTT is better in situations where you need to act fast, while mute is better when you can act on your own time.
