How do I increase the modulation on a midland 1001 z cb radio

There are microphones with built-in amplifiers that can be purchased to increase modulation on rigs that do not have internal adjustments for microphone amplitude. Another approach is to try and find the service manual for your radio and see if it has procedures for setting the modulation.

When I key my mic the people that I am trying to talk to only hear a sound that sounds like an air horn. Why is this?

Either the microphone is faulty, or there is a fault with the modulator. Try a new microphone or check the connections, failing that take it to a rig doctor.

The old Regency radios used a 'stereo' 1/4 plug (3 circuit). Back ring was ground, center ring was switch to PTT to ground and tip was audio line. Is your plug a 'stereo' 1/4 plug?
