The buttons you are referring to are programmable buttons, and it would depend on how they are programmed. In most cases depressing the buttons will not change the radio in such a way you could not communicate. When changes are made, they are changed back to normal by shutting the radio off and turning it back on. See page four of the owners manual.

You might want to read the section on the light on the radio on page 3. It may help.

Here is a copy of the owners manual: http://www.motorola.com/governmentandenterprise/contentdir/en_GB/Files/ProductInformation/6864110B13A_GP340_BUG_Multilingual.pdf

Other questions which come to mind: Have you changed antennas recently? Have you tried the radios together on all channels? Have you tried the radios in a different area? Have the radios been reprogrammed recently? Do you use a repeater? If so, the repeater may be not working or malfunctioning, or you are out of range, check with your service provider.

My digitech dc-1005 will sinc ok ,but one will talk and recieve one way but not the other way, has anyone ant ideas on what could be wrong with them,im thinking the rx or tx on one of them may be ********.


There are 2 oscillator circuits in each unit- one for transmit and one for recieve. It is likely the recieving section of the one that does not recieve the other is slightly out of tune.

I have a midland lxt326 im its supposed to work for 20 miles


The number of miles stated on the package pertain to the approximate distance you can contact somebody IF you were in an open field.

Keep in mind these radio signals travel by air, and if we have trees, houses, and tall buildings around us, the signals will meet interference and bounce around before reaching their destination.

In an urban area, the most you'll get is about 1 mile. I have the exact same radios as you, the LXT 326 model with black and blue on it, and I can use it to talk to family with a radius of about three blocks in every direction from my house. After that, the messages have a lot of static and are no longer understandable.

Cobra 25+ been stored dry in house for 4-5 years worked great then now will recieve but not recieve, swr show good with 60 inch fire stick and 18 foot rg8x coax, also swaped mics with known good one?


hELLO THERE
I would have the radio bench tested tested first.
you may have dirt inside of the unit that is shorting it out
or you may have finals that are out and in need of replacement or mayby the radio just needs to be tunede up by a authorized dealer

Dm 452 microphone


this radio is made by PEIRCE SIMPSON and is wired like a cobra.
pin 1 shiels or ground
pin 2 is audio
pin 3 is transmit
pin 4 is recieve

shield is a bare wire wraped around the audio wire.i dont know the colors of the wires in the echo mic.the transmit wire will have contiuity with the shield wire when the mic is keyed that wiregoes to pin 3 . there should be 2 wires left. check these wires one at a time with the shield wire one will have contiunity . this wire will go to pin 4 recieve.the other wire will go with the shield wire on pin 1
this is the way you find how it wires. it will take an ohm meter to find whice wire goes where.

Hi kb

That is an odd encounter, and most probably one of the R.F.I. kind. Radio Frequency Inference can be caused by many things. Sometimes it can be a nearby piece of equipment creating that much interference, that the mics could not operate. It may have been a spurious mobile radio transmitter as used with two way radio for the cops, ambo's, firies,or even a nearby Cab!! Some times faulty light dimmers can also spray RF.
To what ever end, the fact that 4 mics went down together is indicative of an external problem, and being radio mics, it would have been radio interference.
The only other thing to check is that they are UHF. there are many VHF mic systems still about, but these frequencies are now being used as part of the soon to be introduced digital TV transmission. Best check that they are UHF, The VHF type have actually been illegal for a number of years Hope this info has helped you understand your problem. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Cheers

Making the recieve work better


Hello lugnut, the lack of receiver sensitivity may denote a problem with the RF input amplifier or the IF stages. before attempting to boost the incoming signal I would first want you to check the RF and IF receiver functions first. If there is a problem it would be more advantagous to fix it first. You will need the following equipment 1)schematic (To locate components and test points) 2)digital multimeter (to measure voltages and test points) 3)Radio Frequency (RF) Generator (to provide test and reference signals) 4)IF demodulator probe (to test for proper IF signal amplification along the IF stages) 5)Oscilloscope (To see if audio is being properly reproduced at the audio detector stage) 6) SWR meter(to test the standing wave ratio between (along the coaxial cable path) the antenna and the CB unit. 7)Antenna Dummy load (to emulate the antenna, under FCC law you can not transmitt into the air while testing and repair any transmitter or transceiver). I hope this provides insight into what you will need to work on this problem. These pieces of equipment are needed to properly troubleshoot a CB radio
