Question about Magnum 257 CB Radio
Magnum 257 radio it transmits on am and fm but it will not transmit on lsb or usb transmit bars do not show up on the display on the radio. please help me.
With SSB you have to put audio on the carrier you cant just key the microphone and expect it to output a signal unless you talk into the microphone at the same time this is how SSB works.
So if you talk and the meter starts to move then its ok, if you talk or whistle and nothing moves then the circuit on the SSB side of the unit is faulty.

Been a long time since my first post, but it's been moving all over the place.
First to the French Magnum certified repairman, confirmed the instability issue, not able to fix it. Then I had to send it to Holland to Avera, which is the European rep. for Magnum. Unable to repair too, so they're proposed me an exchange... a long way to get a working set.
Now new worry, audio peps not always there, depending upon temp. (radio's in the car), the mic either works correctly, or it 's difficult to get some power out of it ...thinking about trying another mike, will update the post once done,
