You would have to replace several components on the board(requires alot of soldering and the parts needed are a little hard to come by) in order to change the output frequency ranges. It is alot of work to do this and is probably not worth all the work, Best advice I can give you is to replace it with an AM one and sell it.

Hope this helps

How can I get my midland 9001z from AM to FM


Hi Trevor,

The Midland radio you have is NOT capable of FM transmit & receive. It is a Citizen's Band radio that operates on channels 1 thru 40 that are assigned to the 26.965-27.405 MHz frequency range. These are the standard 40 Ch CB frequencies in the U.S. (and may not be legal for use in other parts of the world without a license from your country's communications authorities). It also offers Weather Band reception - again these are US frequencies that may or may not even be used at all in the UK. Since the radio only displays a channel number, you don't actually know the frequency you're monitoring or transmitting on. Your friends on CH 5 may be in a completely different band.

Even if they are on the same frequency, the fact that they are operating in FM mode means that you would hear something - but it may not be intelligible - and the same would be for them listening to you transmit in AM mode. If you could have them switch their radio to AM, all would be fine. I suspect they use FM as there is much less static when compared to AM.

If they won't change to FM, you'll either have to stop trying to talk to them or buy a radio capable of FM (and make sure it has the same frequencies as theirs!).

Good luck!

Tip

Building your own Antennas


To build antennas for any frequency use formula L=234/Freq. Lets say 100 mhz. That would be L=2.34 feet or about 30 inches(close). Ok, Build a dipole antenna with a plastic insulator and 75 ohm Tv Coax. Take stiff alumnium rods or wire. Punch a hole into a plastic piece 4 inches apart. Insert Rods on both sides. Take shiny screws (Not Painted). attach Center Coax to Right side and Shield (ground) to Left side. Silicone these connections and use Black tape to wrap it good. Mount it on your Chimney or on a Tv pole 12-25 feet. Now, the coax coming into your house has to hook to your stereo by a 75 ohm match coil bought cheap at Electronic stores or Tv, radio supply stores. Attach coax by screwing it to coil and the two prongs screw to Back of your Fm Stereo. It will say ANT and GND. on back of Radio. You should pull in Fm stations better than indoor antennas and get farther away stations. It may have a 3 Db gain. Its the same for Cb radio --Just Use L=234/Freq. it comes to 8.5 feet(102 inches) Roughly. Its all Dipole Technology ..No Commercial antenna but will get decent results.

Midland 75 785 purchase from us will it work on uk channels


  • For 11 meter (CB) the standard 40 channels will be the exactly same as the "EU" set of frequencies (channels). However the "UK" 11 meter (40 channels) and the U.S.A. 40 11 meter (40channels CB) will not work together at all. This includes any actual Citizen Band radio, excluding Export 10 an 12 meter radios often labeled as "CB'S" which they are not.

  • Hope this helps.

Cobra 19 DX IV, I bought this unit in america, but i live in the U.K. and can't pick up any channels, does this unit Only work in america, can i get somthing for it to work in england??? Thanks...


  • The UK uses more FM frequencies than AM frequencies. So the CB will work over there just fine but you will need to find someone who uses them frequencies as well or it may no be much fun. Here is a frequency chart for what we in America call import radios shipped from over there. http://macuk.org.uk/cbchart.htm 27.555 FM is the main frequency used in the UK but the Cobra 19 is a strictly AM CB. Also on the link on the far right are the standard 40 channel frequencies from the UK version of CB's and not one is the same as the Cobra 19 as the UK uses FM for their 40 channel CB radios.
  • Here is the 40 channel CB frequency chart utilized in America http://www.csgnetwork.com/cbradiofreq.html
  • Hope this clarifies things for you.

In Thailand Cb radio users must use freq range 245.000 - 249.999 freqs. Do usa Cb's use this freq?


Thailand actually has three "CB" bands, the first is the same as the U.S. / CEPT (EU "European Community) band 26.965 - 27.405 MHz, the second is a 78MHz VHF mid CB band (I think its either 40 or 80 channels with FM mode) and then the 245.0000 - 245.9875 MHz VHF 80 channel band - apparently the law also stipulates that the 78MHz CBs must be yellow colored and the 245MHz CBs must be red colored.

But yeah, 245MHz Thailand VHF CBs are very illegal in the United States.

Sideband freq


That is wrong , I used to have a freq. counter that only read when you applied RF to it on my old Tempo rig and I ran lower 37 and upper 35 so I would key the radio on am and tune the vfo to that frequency and would be on frequency with everone else,I remember hearing that once long ago but it's not true.

if you are receiving stations on the higher frequencies then your radio is the problem and not your antenna or anything else

U mean on sideband? Frequency counter only useful on other than sideband operation. This does not mean the carrier insertion osc. is on frequency. If it needs adjustment, your voice will sound high/ low on transmit. Incoming signals will sound right after adjusting the osc.

Magnum S9 10/11 mtr radio


If you're receiving OK on AM & SSB, the likely adjustment would be the FM discriminator coil L5. You can adjust it for maximum noise with no signal applied.
