How do i know if my palomar 250 is a high drive or low drive amp


If it is made by Palomar and it is a small amplifier, you can bet it is a low drive. Check those transistors. It could have the new Mosfet 655's in which case definitely low drive 3-6 watts input max.

Need to know how to hook a palomar 450 HD to a connex 3300hp


If its in a car or truck use heavy gauge wire to power it. I use a 3ft jumper between the radio and amp. Should use a grounded antenna system. Not a "MAG MOUNT" type. Those can "feed back" rf to your radio and cause problems. If using in the house, a large power supply will be needed.I own a palomar elite 400 hd.It uses every bit of my 30amp power supply. Your hd amp should like the hp radio.

How do i fix a weak cb radio transmission


Before having a fix on your rig, borrow from a buddy

a SWR meter, measure the power rating of your radio.

It should be having at least a power of 4W with a good SWR of 1.1 to 1.5.


That power would be a match for amp like these:

I just purchased a cobra 29 LTD Classic mobile CB radio.Pro tuned high performance Mosfet Final I have a palomar 450 LD mosfet linear.will i have any problems?


Not if the power output from radio to amp is set correct and the jumper for coax is correct length and there is absolute perfect match between them and the antenna used. Afterthought: also the amp better be connected to something big enough to power it.

TRC520 CB wont power up


Hello, First of all you only have the Power wire Red, and the ground wire Black to connect for 12v DC to power the unit. If you memory power it is usually connected to a constant power source such as the cigarette lighter or continuous 12V dc powersupply off of the battery. These are the only connections that should be connected to provide power. Since the unit will not turn on I suspect that the CB's power supply and regulator have been blown. Another possible choice is that the radio was working and someone removed the antenna cable and the the RF power amplifier malfunctioned taking the power supply and regulator with it. To solve this problem, check the voltages on the wires before connecting them to the radio (these should be the 12 volt power off of the radio circuit, and the 12 volt power off of the continuous 12V connector (or the cigarette lighter). These voltages should read 12V. Connect the CB with it turned off and measure the voltages (should be 12V) Turn the radio on and check the voltages (should be a little less than 12V) If the radio does not come on then the internal power supply of the radio might be defective (In this case I would advise taking the CB to a qualified radio repair shop) I hope this helps Thank you, Shuttle83 http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com
