Try installing a notch filter inline on your antenna. ScannerMaster sells one that will filter out all transmissions below 30 MHz. Since CBs are on 27-28 MHz and most scanners do not receive below 30 MHz, you should be fine.

All electronic devices are required to receive unwanted interference but not cause enterference them thats the best answer I can give you. Your neighbor might be operating with greater than 4 watts allowed by the FCC for citizen band transceivers.

Hi chris here im using a gx300 with a 100w linear amp on the 27mhz band i can hear people but still cant seem to get out im using a staion master antenna please help tried everything


Yikes, using a linear on CB is illegal! You could get into real trouble doing that. The radio \'barefoot\' with that antenna should work very well, and will be legal. If you hear stations, but cannot contact them, there is a good possibility that the linear is not working. Or, the radio may not be putting out power. Do you have access to a watt meter or SWR meter? Find someone who has these instruments, and they can help you out. Best of luck to you!

Modulation adjustment


adjust vr503 or cut cr102 and cr103 cutting these opens up for over modulation, vr503 adjust for 100% mod. once you cut it I don't think vr503 works not sure though.

HOW DO I PROGRAM MY SCANNER FOR CB FREQUENICES


Sorry, but you cannot monitor CB communications with your PRO-82. The CB frequency band is at 28 MHz, and the coverage of your scanner begins at 29MHz.

Need the manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:

Cb radios are usally detuned to meet fcc regulations. The other radios usually are peaked out all the way.

Hand held cb


installed ones, are you refering to base stations? these rigs are more powerful because of the higher wattage outputs and stable installed aerials. :) your handheld can put out as much as 5 watts of power.

Hi, Is you CB gear grounded to an "earth" ground? Also try moving the scanner around, away from the CB coax, as your probably getting stray RF from there. I've run 100watt with my scanner 5ft. away from it and no problems for the last 6 years,,
You are using good quality coax, aren't you? Cheap coax leaks like a soaker hose. Hope this helps you,, Mechanic
** and preaching about ham radio does not solve this persons problem!**
