Question about Midland 75-822 40-Channels Handheld CB Radio

Midland 75-822 Son't Transmit

I can hear some radio chatter (receive) but cannot reply (transmit). It's like the PTT (push to talk) button isn't working or something. Same problem with rubber on-radio antenna as with it attached to my vehicle antenna. Any ideas?

    Is that something I can repair myself? If so where would I get the part? Thanks. I am already looking into returning the radio since it is defective. But the return policy is so convoluted with so much fine print, I'm pretty sure the retailer will find a way to screw me out of a return or will not repair or replace it for me, as they should.

Cobra 148 gtl-st wont transmit but receives great


Check first your microphone

• check if TX is engaging when PTT is pushed.


• check for continuity ( mic and cable )



If you have not done these steps,

try it first, or borrow other compatible mic for Cobra 148GTL

from your friends on air.

I can only hear the others. When I talk they can't hear and my red anntenna keeps coming on when I push button to talk.


Assuming the antenna is mounted and grounded correctly,when you try to transmit/talk does your meter needle move to the right with your voice,if it doesn't make sure meter knob is set to receive/transmit or mod[modulate] does it move to right now,if not make sure the mic gain knob is turned up or if it is a power mic,is it turned up&have a fresh battery.The antenna light could mean high swr readings which you will have to adjust by tuning the antenna with the radio meter or external meter,you can search swr adjustment on your computer if unfamiliar..some antenna warning lights are factory set too sensitive but most times are telling you there is a problem.If all is set&tuned properly and you still can't get a local signal to respond, your radios transmit finals could be blown,which you'll need a qualified radio tech to determine..Good luck& 73's

Receivers complain about squeeling noise from my midland 1001z when I transmit. Is this an RF Gain setting problem?


I had the same (squealing) problem on transmit with the Midland 1001Z when I used it indoors as a base unit. The problem was my power supply: it broke into oscillation when drawing more than 150 mA at 13.8V. The 1001Z draws about 150 mA on Receive, and much more (but only about 900 mA) on Transmit. If using the 1001Z as a base unit, I suggest you power it with a fully-charged car battery indoors, or test your power supply to check if it can't supply the required 1 Amp, approx., on Transmit. It's a GREAT radio, just give it a good power supply. My power supply was defective out of the box, but now I have a good one and get great reports on signal strength and audio quality. Remarkable, for the low price and 3 year warranty. Good luck!
