My cb radio is saying its transmitting and receiving but when I put out for radio check I'm getting no reply and don't think anybody can pick me up

Can you hear anyone on the CB? Does anyone actually use CB these days.

Check the connections to the antenna. Did you tune the antenna with a SWR meter?

Can I wire a Kenwood MC-60 mic to a Galaxy 2517

You can. You'll need to figure out the function of the MC 60 wiring and also that of the stock 2517 mic to rewire the MC 60 to it. if you need help with that, I'll see what I can find for you

Is a Cobra HH 38 WX ST C compatible with VHS marine radios?? Can it be used from mobile unit in a vehicle to the stationary unit in the boat ??

  • Hi, I can help.
  • The Cobra HH 38WX ST is a hand held CB restricted to the normal 40 CB channels.
  • A VHS marine radio uses different frequencies and different antennas.
  • I would absolutely not hook one to the others antenna set up or you will fry that radio as the SWR would go through the roof immediately.
  • You can use that CB in the mobile and on a boat but they would need their own antenna setup.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

I Cant Pick Up Any Signals On my Cobra 25 LTD 40-Channels Base CB Radio all i hear is nothing. no truckers saying stuff. i just get white noise i do have an antenna. it is a tv antenna w/ bunny ears :) i...

Your problem is probably the rabbit ears. They are for tv in the 54+
Mhz and CB is 27 Mhz. For simplicity, go to Radio Shack and get a back of the radio indoor antenna. They run under $20. If you want to get more; try a roof antenna or a 1/2 wave cb marine antenna outside.
Hope it helps.3

I just purchased a uniden solara dsc.I HOOKED IT UP AND THE NOAA WORKS BUT I TRIED TALKING AND NOTHING HAPPENED.(I have a tractor with a radio and neither of us could hear each other).

The Uniden Solara is a MARINE RADIO not a CB. Marine (boat) radios operate in the VHF-Hi range and CB is in the VHF-Lo range. You also need a license to operate a marine radio, or you can identify yourself with the name of your boat but you MUST be in the water.
