YOu need to make your your swr's ( antenna match ) are correct. This radio is subject to that problem if your swr's are wrong.
I Hope this helped

My general lee cb radio won't transmit... i can receive can any one help


How old is the radio? Try another Mic. If that does not work then your radio need a service tech.

Galaxy DX 55HP stopped transmitting, but will receive. When the mic is keyed the power meter goes past max and wont transmit. Tried different mics and no difference


connect to a meter. if there is rf power on a watt meter at full wattage. then the am regulator transistor is bad. less than $5 part.

Got a connex 3300HP has a ranger board and chipset won't modulate recieves fine keys up relay clicks needle doesn't move no voice either cant find schematics


You may have a dead meter.
Modulation is audio's affect on swing wattage or pep. Notice that needle moving more with your voice.
Dead key or carrier wattage is without your voice enhancing the power only with mic keyed.
I can only assume that the chipset you are referring to is an ic chip audio or pll which must be working if you are receiving audio.
Check your mic cord................ transmit and modulation and even your receive volume can be affected by the cord/mic plug solder joints or broken wires here.

When I depress the transmit button the cb puts a squel out to other radios on the same channel yet I have no problem hearing transmissions from the other radios


It sounds like the mic either has a problem, or its wired incorrectly for that radio.

Try a new mic, and make sure it's wired for that radio.

Also, if you have talk back then it's too loud, or your mic gain is too high.

The type of radio would help me know weather or not it could be the mic wiring.

CB Squeal When Transmitting


I believe the coiled coax may indeed be the problem. To check, try a temporary rerouting of the cable which eliminates the coils. Dave g.

CB Squeal When Transmitting


Grounding the antenna bracket is extremely important, if it's bolted into the metal frame or fender it should be OK. The coiled coax cable could be the culprit but that's only a remote possibility.Try running a separate groung wire from the radio mounting bracket (or one of the radio's cover screws if not using a bracket) to the CLOSEST vehicle ground...keep this a short as possible. Your problem is definitely caused by insufficient ground at either end of the coax, with the antenna side being more suspect.

First off check to see if your mic gain is turned all the way down. Second; if you have a power mic is the battery dead ir the volume of the mic turned down. If these check ok, look for a loose or broken audio wire in your microphone, and the connector (both ends can break). I have seen the wires break as far back as 4 inches from the mic head and the connector depending on how the user held the microphone, or pulled against the wire. if the problem is not found to be any of the above I suggest you take the radio to a qualified technician for repair.
