I have connex 3300hp and i am haveing problems with receiveing up close but i can hear people way out in the distance

The answer is simple, when ever you get 2 cb or any 2-way radios working the same frequency close, that is within a couple of metres,
and you're not using a repeater, you won't hear anything, however with a repeater you will hear the nearby station, as long as it's not so close as to cause feedback (ouch! my ears).

Hey guys i have a galaxy 44v, i had two radio checks, on guy said it sounded like i had a pin on my nose and one said i was a little distorted, so what is going on the radio, is dead keying 0.5 watt and...

That radio is clipped and producing as much audio it can and in the process it is also a big splatter box. If you produce 4 watt of carrier and swing 6-7 it will be kinder one everyone ears around you.In other words make sure tr 32 is intact, r49 is not clipped and the amc is not turned wide open.should be marked am mod.I am a Ham Radio Operator that has 15 years of motorola experience. Hope this helps.

I have a uniden 68xl with no audio. The audio chip is good. It has key and swing just no ears. What else could it be?

make sure the RF gain is on max.

If the meter is moving when receiving, but you don't hear it, it could be the mic. Try a different mic and see if it works. It could also be a broken wire to the mic jack.

If the meter doesn't swing when some one is transmitting to you and you don't hear them, there could be either something wrong in the receive section of the radio, a bad resistor in conjunction with the RF gain control, or it could just be a bad knob.

You can hot wire it to full to check it like this:

Look for the wires on the RF gain knob. Its 2 wires. Disconnect them form the knob and twist or solder them together. If you have receive after that its a bad knob.

You can replace it, or just solder the wires permenantly together and put some shrink tube on it and use it like that. You don't need RF gain any way.

Most of the time its on full any way. no need to turn it down.

Rolling Frequency Counter

I'm giving this info from the Master Edition of C.B. Tune-up manual Volume 1 year -1995. The original price of this info was $39.95 But I have had people help me with radio info. so here it is---- on page 60 it says [ Model ] : Galaxy Saturn ( and export models using the same Freq. counter module ) The most common problem with the { Galaxy Saturn } is after it has been on for awhile the read-out becomes unstable. And sometimes it will quit all together. This problem has been traced to a Zener Diode inside the freq, counter module. The square silver box located right behind the speaker. The Zener Diode inside marked D-603. This is a 2.4 volt , 1/4 watt diode next to IC-609 the ( LM-7808 ) regulator. REMEDY: change D-603 to a ( 2.4 volt , 1/2 watt diode) This should restore normal operation. {{{{ 357 - MAVERICK }}}

Wandering off frequency

man i love the galaxy radio! but when talking on ssb sometimes this becomes real annoying. Galaxy radios drift. They are my fav. brand of radio but i will admit they drift. and some times its real BAD other times its not too bad. i dont know how to solve it but SOME techs some real good ones who know galaxy inside and out can minimize the drift. im sorry i can not tell you how. look up protech cb shop try getting intouch with them, tell them your problem, and they should be able to fix it.
