    Are you using the radio mobile or base?



    The wilson looks like a high power mount only and does not include a whip section. What is the whip you are using and how long?



    The 757 is a HF radio with 20 years pedigree!

    It should do anything your mates midland would do and more!

The radio goes from 10 -160 meters. You should get good results with the wilson 5000,even the 1000!

Wilson is a pretty good all purpose antenna.You can probably get the cb freqs if not an experienced tech can open it up for you.

Adjusted mag mount antenna w/a swr meter. When checked it w/the meter on the '06 uniden pc78 elite, ch 40 was a lot higher. Which is correct ?


The coax jumpers between the meter and the radio can change the SWR a little bit. It is very unlikely the the antenna can be that low on 1 and 40. Set it for the lowest on 20 via the radio and as long as you are under a 2 on 1 and 40 then it should be OK.

CB warning antenna on a cobra 29 lx camo


You may have blown out the output transistor in the CB. Can you still calibrate the swr meter? The K 30 isn't really a very good antenna. The Lil Will isn't either. I'd try a K-40 or a better model Wilson antenna.

Purchased a midland 75 785 from u s will it work on u k 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.

Please explain a 10 meter am/fm radio


Okay.

You do set this up like a regular CB. The meters refers to how long the waves are. CB is 11 meters. So its very close. The antenna woud be tuneds slightly shorter. Use the SWR meter in the radio to calibrate just like you would a normal cb.

Now for the ABCDEF knob. each letter is 40 channels in the band. So A would be 1 - 40 channels, then B would be the next 1 - 40 channel frequencies. You use the frequency counter in the radio(providing that model has one) to tell what channel you are on.

Here is some info one the frequencies in the band.

Now for AM and FM. this is the type of modulation you are using for transmit and receive.

CB transmits on AM or SSB. Amplitude modulation or Single side band. Most CB radios only have AM. But some also have SSB. None will have FM.

FM is frequency modulation.

10 meter radios can have AM FM SSB and DSB depending on the model and options it comes with.

So your radio has 6 ranges for freqency. each is 40 or 50 channesl. Not sure what model you have. If it has 40 then you have 240 channel freqencies.

with AM and FM, you double that, because you can talk on AM or FM on all the channels. If you are on AM and some one transmits on FM unless they are really close, you will not hear them at all, but if you do with will just be garbbled noise.

Also Am and FM both work a little different with range etc.

Now, you may be able to talk on the CB channels as well. Cb starts at 26.965 MHz and ends at 27.405 MHz. The channels are all .010 MHz appart.

Hope this helps

Information on how to use DX 45MP radio


The DX 45mp is a 10 meter radio meaning you need a license to use any other band other than the normal 1- 40 cb channels, its capable of going beyond the normal cb range.Ask if it has been converted to 11 meter. Channel E should be the normal if it has been converted from 10 meter to 11 meter. Im sure its been converted if its been used for a mobile cb application. Normal cb band is called 11 meter 26.965 mhz to 27.405 thats 1- 40 . Your not supposed to talk on the other bands unless you have an amature radio license but everyone does anyway . I have several galaxys and by far in my opinion are the best on the market. Go to www.cbtricks.com on the home page go to Radio Informaion click it go to G and follow it to Galaxy DX radios youll find all the info for this radio you can even print out the channel chart to see where everything is. Good luck and if you have any more questions just ask. Thank you Chia

Cobra 29ltd cb radio


Hi,

A couple of suggestions:
1. verify that the RF Gain is maximum clockwise;
2. verify that the ANL or noise limiter is OFF;
3. pls add a ground strap from the body of the Cobra 29LTD to the chassis/GND of the vehicle or to your house GND connection;
4. Verify that your Wilson 5000 has a sufficient ground plane such as roof or metal objects.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
