    Tried power mics and stock mic ... No amp draw when keying mic... COBRA IS WELL AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM and their stand is OH WELL...(I'm seeking legal help) If anyone is thinking about buying a COBRA product, I would give it some serious thought first. I was hoping that somebody found a way to fix this problem but it's really hard to find somebody to work on COBRA 200's. I am now looking for a RCI 2970 or at least a 2950 knowing these radios WILL LAST.

The sulution to the problem is simple, you call cobra and tell them you need part# 010-133 Description TRD-16HHF-CA TRANS RD16HHF1. This part costs only $10.00 not including shipping, It's the transistor for the output stage of the amplifier and is a known problem with the radio... It's simple to replace and only takes a very few minutes.. This will fix the problem and get your radio up and running again.

Are you in the USA? Cobra isn't going to care because if it has multiple "bands" of Channels (as described), it is not FCC type accepted for CB use in the USA Therefore, you are running an illegal radio, and griping about "warranty coverage" stands a snowball's chance in hell...

How come my icom 756 pro did not transmitting on 8000 frequency


You have to modify this radio to operate outside of the HAM bands. You will likely find the modification at www.mods.dk. This is a pretty common and easy modification for HAM radios. Your performance may not be as good as in the HAM bands.

You do this MOD at your own risk. If you are not licensed for operation on ANY frequency or band, you are not legally allowed to transmit. Heavy fines may be levied against you.

I am getting a "Err" message when trying to transmit


Almost always a programming issue. Somehow, the transmit frequency is not enabled or programmed correctly. Always include all the zeros when programming these. The decimal point is critical also.

I have a tk -250 and I can hear everyone talking but when I try to respond to them all it does is beep


Are you sure the people you hear talking are in the band limits of the radio. Generally, when they beep on transmit it's because you're trying to transmit out of band. If the stations you're hearing are near the band edge it's possible you have the "offset" wrong and when you hit the PTT, the shift (offset) in the wrong direction is taking the radio out of band.

I have a tk-250 I can receive calls but cant transmit when I go to talk and all it does it beeps what do I do


You may have the "tx offset" turned on and may be trying to transmit on a frequency that is considered "out of band" for the radio. Or the frequency you're attempting to transmit on is simply out of band for that radio. It depends on where in the world you're using the radio. If it was a Euro or Japan radio and you're in the US or South America, the bands are different.

Baofeng UV5RA WILL NOT TRANSMIT


First, it's illegal to use that radio in the FRS bands. Also many of the Baofeng radios have very "dirty" output (spurs, frequency drift, bad modulation, etc). Your best bet is probably to buy another radio. With these radios about 3 of 10 I've tested have been bad.

Baofeng UV5 RA WILL NOT TRANSMIT IN 146 MHZ or 440 mhz bands


It's not programmed right. You can probably find more intelligible programming instructions on Google. Their manuals are not great.

Display says OFF


You are on a portion of the 2 meter band that the radio does not allow you to transmit on. You need to get within the legal band portion and transmit there. The IC-V8000 only transmits between 144.000mHz and 148.000mHz. You likely have the radio outside of that range.

Will not receive and transmit on 15mtrs and 17mtrs


Hi Seamus,

Is this only on those bands, not an issue with other bands?

If so, then your radio may not be fitted with the correct frequencies to transmit on those bands, they are after all allocated in part to the Amateur operators, which requires licensing to operate.

The fact you can't Tx/Rx, indicates this to be the issue.

I can't help you if you are not a licensed HAM Operator, sorry...

Enjoy the other bands available for your radio.

Cheers,
Peter

How can i modify the midland 75-822 for more channels?


Modding your CB for more channels puts the radio into Ham bands which you need a license to transmit on, also modding a CB violates FCC part 95 rules and is therefor illegal to transmit with and the hams report most illegal transmitting on there band

How do i get expanded freqs on my ft1802 yaesu tranceiver


The FT-1802 is a 50 watt 2 meter FM transceiver. It can transmit anywhere between 144 - 148 Mhz (the FM portion) of the 2 meter ham band. It can receive anywhere between 136 - 174 Mhz without any modifications. There is a modification to enable transmit "out of band" below:

http://www.ham.dmz.ro/yaesu/ft-1802-extended-transmit-modification.php

There are few details about the results of this mod - typically these provide for transmitting on frequencies outside (above, below or both) of the 2 meter ham band. Transmitting outside of the ham band without a proper license for the frequencies in the U.S. is a violation of FCC rules.
