Thread: Connex general lee ... amps and is getting cookin' hot when key'd for as little as 30 seconds, lol, truckstop hack job comes to mind lol.
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.

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.
