I have one of these, case was never opened up, and I get 11 meters by just pressing the 'man' button- It shows the expanded CB channels, and works great. Don't know if it was ordered that way, I got it second- hand. Good luck!

The RCI 2950 / 2970 family of radios are a wonderful group. They use pretty much the same circuits in the 2995 bases. The part in the heat sink is the mod chip. In the newer 2950 / 2970 radios, it plugs into a 3 pin plug that resembles a plastic power transistor socket at the end of a hanging wire behind the front display. I'm not sure where it would be in the base but look for one of these tied to a wiring harness inside the radio. My 2970DX would also go all the way to 12 meters with the adition of a two pin jumper plugged into another plug inside the radio. I don't know if this applies to the base units or not but look around inside if you're interested. The only hitch is when you activate this option, you wipe out everything in the radio's memory like channel presets and such. When I set mine up, I connected the plug to a magnetic reed switch in the back of the radio. When I wanted to listen to it, I would place a strong magnet behind the radio, turn it off and on and I was set. This way, I didn't have to drill any switch holes.
ONE LAST CAUTION!!! If there's a lightening storm within 3 states of your location, UNPLUG your antenna. I had a bolt hit a tree 30 feet from my antenna and blew the processor out of the radio. You can tell when this happens when it is locked on transmit on 28.000 MHz Bye Bye $200.00.
Good luck,

Can a turner ssb+2 micraphone be wired to a ranger 2995dx cb radio?

If I remember right those mics were for relay switching radios and not transistor switching radios like todays models. Also I would bet you would be very disappointed with the results as the ranger radios have an excellent modulation circuit that does not need any help from a power mic. A trustworthy radio shop tech can tune up a Ranger and make it sound excellent without a power mic. I haven't installed one in years. They are a waste of money and time in most cases except for the D104 which can be used with some base stations.

Just fitted new power supply after repair but power supply working but it wont power up .....please help

Check the fuse. Blowing a power supply does not happen. Blowing a fuse often does. If the power supply truly went out, it is too small in amperage. More information on the power supply may help.

Midland 75 785 purchase from us will it work on uk channels

  • For 11 meter (CB) the standard 40 channels will be the exactly same as the "EU" set of frequencies (channels). However the "UK" 11 meter (40 channels) and the U.S.A. 40 11 meter (40channels CB) will not work together at all. This includes any actual Citizen Band radio, excluding Export 10 an 12 meter radios often labeled as "CB'S" which they are not.

  • Hope this helps.

In most cases I have been able to replace a capacitor associated with the power supply, it fails when the voltage is pulled down during transmit. You're more than welcome to ship it in here.

My ranger 2950 will receive but will not transmit, also where can i get a 6 pin mike for this same radio ?

check tr 51 (Q 51) the sb754 on the back side mounting of the radio.. the center pin (collector) of this modulator ic should not be 13 volts. my bet is that it is.. this test is done in am mode.. not sideband.
depending on you carrier setiing it should be between 3 -8 volts any higher in am mode and my bet is that its bad... much more common than the finals in this radio. good luck Rick

Will not stay on 11 meter turn it off comes back on 10&12 meter will not transmit am or ssb recieve ok. rci 2995dx.

Hello janetsue, If this radio has the blue or green screen LCD face then this is a default that is built into the radio. It depends on how the radio was "converted" when it was bought new.
It will not key up on 10 or 12 because of the default. A little more info supplied would be real helpful,,,, Let me know, Mechanic
