Model GXT1000//1030/1050 Series No Transmit WI [SOLVED]

If you have a Midland GXT 1000/1030/1050 two way radio and one of the radios is not transmitting, check that WI (Whisper Mode) is not ON.

Specifically, if you see a “WI” indicator at the top of the LCD screen, I recommend turning it OFF and give that a try. 🙂

This fixed our radios so my kiddos could successfully use them 🙂

NOTE: if you do not see the “WI” indicator on either radio, then this tip will not be applicable to your situation. Sorry!
