I recall problems grounding the antenna on those kw's. May want to try a no ground antenna. Also the stock coax that comes with the truck sometimes gets broken or pinched. Go to a good shop, replace the cheap coax and grount the antennas.

Problem no squelch noise or speaker like its muted, but can hear weather ok shows receiving and ant ok


Since the radio cannot transmit on Weather bands, there is no need for the radio to detect if it is transmitting when receiving weather.
In CB mode (on CB channels) the radio will mute when transmitting. So... a guess is that it is muting, or transmitting all the time in CB mode. Check for a mic problem by removing the Mic from the radio ... if it receives CB with no mic connected, then there is an issue with the mic. Otherwise, unless the unit is in PA mode (public address mode) it is likely something internal and beyond the scope of this service.

Can't transmit signal. Only get a 2 second beep when I push the transmit button


You have a poorly charged or bad battery. It takes more power to transmit than to receive. Usually the first thing you lose with a low, bad or poorly charged battery is transmit.

Try a known good battery in the radio. This should solve the problem. If not, check your battery contacts, as you may have one which is bad or not making good contact.

Clean your contacts with a pencil eraser to assure good connection with the charger.

Best regards.

Will not transmitt


Are you programming the radio or did you buy it used? In the programming, a radio can be set for receive only. The other possibility is a bad battery. A battery has a huge draw on transmit and may not actually send a signal. Think of it like trying to start a car. I encounter this issue weekly. (poor battery) Post more information if you want me to help you. Such as: do you have the software, is it a fresh battery. How old is the radio. Let me know.

Receives fine transmission is very poor


Transmit issues can be related to a bad or poorly charged battery. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive. Try swapping batteries with a known good radio to see if it solves the problem. Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser and if needed replace the battery pack.

Best regards.

My hr2600 shows error 3 when it is keyed up and does not transmit


0 = Transmitter Timeout timer has timed-out
1 = Transmit Frequency is lower than TX Lockout Lower Limit
2 = Transmit Frequency is greater than TX Lockout Higher Limit
3 = Phase-locked-loop (PLL) won't lock at this transmit frequency
4 = PLL is intermittently coming out of lock during transmit
*If your radio displays error 3 or 4, don't keep trying to transmit on this frequency. The cause of the problem could be low power supply voltage to the radio or the radio's VCO loop needs adjustment. Refer to a qualified technician for service. Contact the installer of the chip first. If, however, you installed the chip yourself, contact a qualified technician for service.

Handheld Radio Shack CB radio TRC-230 I can hear people but no one can hear me


First, lets make sure that the unit does transmit. Get a power meter and see how much power it transmits. If no power is being radiated, you need to have a technician check out the unit.
If you have power then pick a less crowded time to test out if anyone can hear you. Other people with more powerful equipments can only be a problem when you are transmitting on the same channel and both of you happen to transmit at the same time all the time. Chances are remote that this is your problem. Good luck. es
