SWR OK? Is it throwing a dead-key carrier? No carrier? Midlands many times will show what looks like a processed modulation signal but is not going out your finals on the radio, and out the antenna. Suggest an external in-line meter to see if there really is a transmitted signal. If there is a signal, look for a broken/bad wire at the mics plug-in end. If no signal on the add-on meter, suspect an audio chip or final that's defective. All three are fixable at a GOOD CB Shop.

Im having problems with my midland 77-095 im reciving lound and clear but my output is terrible people cant hear me but i can hear them>???? thanks


it is possible you are hearing peoplein skipland. skip is an atmospheric phenomenon that causes radio waves to travel hundreds even thousands of miles. there a lot of cb operators that run high power amplifiers which would make their signal go even further. this would mean you would hear them well, but your radio doesn't have enough power to reach that person. right now we are in a solar cycle which has been causing skip daily. if you know that the peson you are trying to talk to is local and within. a few.miles then there may be an issue wit either your radio or antenna. the antenna must be tunedto the radio or you signal will not radiate off the antenna completely. over time it can destroy the radios transmit circuit. so if you have never.tuned the antenna you may be causing the radio not to work well and you may have hurt the transmit transistor.

Hi i have a midland 98 plus,i have been told that when i talk it have very low volume and people have to turn their set up to full volume to hear me. but the same mic on a different set works fine


Look at Radio Mods or Defcom mods. To clip modulation diode inside radio. Take to Cb shop to Peak&Tune. It may be wound to high in carrier but not audio. Buy you a "Power Mic" at Radio Shack or WWW.COPPERELECTRONICS.COM.

check the SWR. the antenna may not be tuned. Also, you may be hearing skip. If so, they are thousands of miles away, and you don't have enough power to talk to them.

Find some one close to test it.

Hey my radio wont recieve when I try to talk to my friends. They can hear what I transmit but I don't get any responses back from them. Any ideas on what the problem is and how I might fix it?


Here are some things to check.

  • Try a different mic. With out a properly functioning mic, the radio will not go into receive mode.
  • Make sure the RF gain is up all the way.
  • Make sure the squelch is not too high.
  • Make sure the radio is not in PA mode and is on CB mode.
If none of the listed fixes your issue, there may be a more serious problem with the radio. It will need a tech.

When I key my mic the people that I am trying to talk to only hear a sound that sounds like an air horn. Why is this?


Either the microphone is faulty, or there is a fault with the modulator. Try a new microphone or check the connections, failing that take it to a rig doctor.
