Sounds like a heat sensitive problem to me. See the above listed problem and solution. Also the heat could be coming from over heating even from a high SWR as suggested.

Kenwood tm-281a transmitting but no one can hear me.


How is your antenna? Do you have another 2 M radio? Try feeding a dummy load and listening on another radio nearby. Look at the display when you transmit. Does it show the right frequency? If you have the offset wrong and it is taking you outside the band, it will likely not transmit. Do you have a power meter? Does the rig's current drain go up when you try to transmit? (Does the power supply keep the voltage up when you try to transmit?) Supply voltage dropping will cause the rig to NOT actually transmit.

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.

On my Cobra 25 LTD CLassic, New my meter drops when transmitting


is this a new out of the box radio?if so you might need a tech to look at it because it could be an internal problem.It would have to be put on an analyzer and a scope to actually be seen doing what you say.don't worry because it can be fixed.the cost of fixing it is the problem.You have to decide whether you want to pay more for the repair than you paid for the radio. Either way,new or used the answer is the same.

No transmit on 148gtl


First is check to see if SSB transmits or not==if it does the AM regulator on side wall of radio is bad.

Second with a meter and no power on--test the driver and final for shorts or open.

If one is bad replace both.

let me know what you find.

Got an A. P. Hill that will transmit and recieve but, no sound from the speaker or the external speaker jack. I connected my SWR/POWER meter and i get power out but, nothing thru the speaker even with the...


Here is a quick way to test to see if it is the speaker. Use a multimeter and set it to Ohms. Unsolder the two wires off of the speaker and touch the pos terminal on the speaker with the pos terminal on the multimeter on the multimeter. Touch the neg terminal on the speaker with the neg terminal on the multi meter. The meter should spike a bit and might crackle a bit as well. This says speaker is good. So then you know the problem is most likely the Audio Output Transistor (IC) In your radio you will look for IC8 on the board. It will be marked. Looking towards the back of the radio on the right side it will be a fairly long chip. The good news is that you can purchase one and install it if you are handy with a soldier gun.

Power meter on my dx-979 barely moves off of 0 when transmitting the swr meter also hovers around 1.0 no matter what channel...not used to seeing such low swr readings and almost nothing on the power...


I would check the radio with an external meter to see if it is the transmitter or the Meter in the radio. If it is the meter in the radio it could have a bad detection Diode or just oout of adjustment or even a bad calibration pot. other wise start looking to fix your transmitter like finals or other similar problem.

sure, the red lead goes to the battery pos and the black lead goes to the battery neg as some cb radios have a reverse polarity idiot diode fitted, go with caution. With a multi meter you can find the neg terminal using the continuity or the low ohms
select on the meter...1 meter lead goes to the metal body of the set and the other lead goes to one of the power leads WITH THE SET TURNED OFF when the meter responds to a contact and shows low ohm reading you have found the neg lead..this lead is directly connected to the fram/case of the set. With a few sets
you need to have the mike connected in order to power up.

VHF transmit power


Hi, It is not typical but neither is there a problem with the radio. Transmit Power output is loosely dependent on the: 1. Frequency or channel you are transmitting. Normally, Marine Band VHF are calibrated for max (25 in your radio) at Ch16 or 156.800Mhz; 2. If the SWR of the antenna is not a flat 1.0, power tends to go down; 3. After some time, the TX side of the radio needs to be re-calibrated; 4. Power Supply - some radios will push max output only when powered with 13.8 and tends to go down when used with 12 volts. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
