Question about Ranger RCI-2995DX Base Scanner

1 Answer

Squeals when keyed up. Detecting talk back.

I have a 2995DX and use a Turner Plus 2 microphone. Just recently, I've noticed it wants to squeal, or even hum, like the mic gain is up to high. I tried the stock microphone on it and I try to get the modulation up with the gain, and I detect some talk back through the external and internal speaker. No special mods have been done with this radio to have talk back. I really like this radio and want to keep it for a while. I thought it might be the Turner acting up and tried to trouble shoot that, but, like I said, the stock mic is acting the same, but not as dramatic.
Please help me...

Cobra highgear hg75m mic squeals


get it away from the ext . speaker. They are cheap enough ,buy another one and see if it still squeals. If it does then you may have to jump the mic with resistors ,turn down your mic gain, check for talk back on rear where your pa. and external speaker hooks to inside the radio. If you see a resister connecting them then you have talk back . Mainly its a Keep the mic away from the speaker deal that makes them squeal. Try other cobra mics with the same pin out and see if it still happens . easy fix just have to be patient .

I have a Cobra 148 mounted on the hump in a pickup truck and it works fine. Then I plugged in a old Turner +3 desk microphone and I get bad feedback when it is keyed up and I can also hear my voice thru...


You're most likely getting lots of RF feedback from the metal cab of your truck,combined with the real sensitive nature of the amplified Turner mike.I would put an old original Cobra (coffin mike) handheld mike or a Astatic Roadking 56 (RK56) on it.They are really hard to beat,especially when you have lots of feedback & squealing. I also have a 148GTL (malaysia made) that has a Turner +3 deskmike & it squeals in my truck but not in the house. The 148GTL has given me better service than ANY other radio I've owned.It has 120 channels (freeband) & upper & lower sideband. I think mine is a 5pin Cobra-type plug-in. Try a simpler mike & good luck. Squirrly

Radio squeals when mic is keyed up and truck is not running. Why might this be


Check the SWR's and also Check that you have at least 10 amps or more on the power wires that you are connected to. if possible run + - wire from battery to radio and see if it squeals , 10 ga wire should work, if just a plain 40ch radio. if an export with more than 60watts you would need more amps. ...

when the vehicle is running it may be getting enough amps, but when it is off. there may be a loose connection or small wires and not enough amps.

Squeal problems
low amp draw - small wire.
High swr's
loud talk back
shorted mic cable wires/broken wires
loose grounds

Rear brakes (driver-side) squeal after replacing rotors and pads


you need to grease the metal clips at the top and bottom of the pads (dont get grease on the rotor or pad though) and also spray some "disc brake quiet" on the back of the pads. it comes in a red can and the spray that comes out is like sticky red paint. do those 2 things and the squeals will be gone.
