Ok! well i deffinitally know what the problem is. You need to play with the clarifier, i think all the way to the left is a "course and fine tune" knob. This is generally for use when talking on SSB. but may affect AM if its way off.

The clarifier lets you slide on the freq. some radios will go a full channel some will only go a little or above the center of the channel. You need to play with the clarifier, you probably need to turn the course a lot, untill the audio is almost clear on the channel you want to talk on, than use the fine to tune it in so it sounds like they are sitting right next to you.

what you should do is buy a Frequency counter, you got a nice radio, so the freq. counter wouldent hurt. lets say you want to be on channel 19. you would turn the clarifiers untill i read 27.1850 That would put you right on the money

Repeats selection and won't chage seletion. superstar 3600


Obviously your channel display must be working. I would assume the radio has sustain some harsh trauma to the channel selector itself possibly a drop.
Remove the speaker side cover looking down on the channel selector and its pcb board check connection and between the mechanical switch and pcb.
This may be as simple as a cold solder joint the problem is finding it.
http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/superstar/3900/graphics/ss3900_sch.gif the schematic is for the 3900 which i believe are similar units.

Need a service manual need to modify a MR f55 radio to transmit on 161.600 mhz can you help?


Hello,
You want to be able to transmit to the Coast Station on this frequency I assume. The Coast Guard monitors channel 16 at all times. This would be the primary channel in the United States. Your radio is VHF Marine Radio and has a built in frequency range of 156.050 MHz to 163.275 MHz. There is no need for a modification. This is a duplex frequency. What that means is you will transmit on one frequency and receive on another, while on channel 20. You will not need to transmit on 161.600. Turn your radio to channel 20. When you transmit, you will transmit on 157.000. And when the Port responds to you your radio will automatically receive their signal on 161.600. So if you are trying to figure out how to communicate with the port authorities then for that frequency turn your radio to channel 20 and you will be able to communicate with them.

Regards, Tony

Mic hum


Yes, the wiring is different. Reverse the wires on pins 1 & 2, then reverse the wires on pins 3 & 4.

The wiring for you radio's mike is:

1- Audio
2-Ground (Shield)
3-Receive
4-Transmit

Depending on the vintage of your mike, the colors Uniden uses for these functions are white or yellow for audio, red is transmit & black is receive.
