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,
Jeff

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.

Squeals when keyed up. Detecting talk back.


ITS JUST NOT THE TURNER MIC IT HAPPENS WITH ALL BASE MICS HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 2995DX WITH A ASTATIC D-104 & 1104-C AND ALSO ANY TURNER I HAVE USED BUT I CAN RUN A ASTATIC MOBILE D-104M6B OR RED DEVIL AND NO SQUEAL HAVE YOU TRIED GROUNDING THE CASE OF THE RADIO IT IS RF FEED BACK SQUEAL SO MY SUGGESTION TO YOU IS TO RUN A 48 COPPER GROUND ROD INTO THE GROUND AND RUN A NICE GROUND WIRE TO THE BACK OR THE CHASIS OF THE RADIO AND IF YOU ARE USING ANY EXTERNAL AMPLIFIERS ALSO GROUND THEM AND YOUR SQUEAL WILL BE ILLMINATED

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
