Question about Pyramid (Swr14) Swr&Power Field Strength Meter with Power Switch (10&100 Watts)

3 Answers

Need frequencies covered by pyramid SWR-14 meter

I don't know if this only works on CB band (27 Mhz) or if it will work also for the 2m band (145 Mhz). Cannot find who makes it.
I think I got this from Radio Shack but they no longer carry this item.

According to the "owners manual" (a single sheet) the frequency range is from 1.5MHz to 150MHz. So, you are okay for the 2-meter band. That is, of course, if you can believe the manual!

See for yourself...

I've got a new pyramid ps52kx, right out of the box. It shows 7.8 volts on the meter and the potentiometer will not adjust up or down, no control what so ever.. I did put an old used radio on it and no...

Have you set it up properly ? Consult instruction book. If you are certain it is defective, get a refund under the warranty (if it's new it should still be under guarantee)

Problems in CB Radio Receive and Modulation

Much of the time complaints about CB receive (RX) and modulation are caused by problems in the antenna system. Make sure there are no shorted or open connections in the coaxial cable or PL-259 (screw-on connectors for coaxial cable, located at the antenna and rear of CB radio) connectors. Use your radio's meter or better still, a Power/SWR meter to check the SWR (Standing Wave Ratio) of the antenna. Try to get that as close as possible to a 1:1 ratio on the meter. A shorted or open antenna can keep the receive audio on your radio at very low levels. Plus, this will harm your transmitter if you continue keying the mike.

Another problem can surface in the radio itself. This will be noticed if you can transmit, but have no "modulation". Modulation can be described as the voice heard above the "carrier" (your transmitted signal). Every CBer knows about the term, modulation. The Truckers will definitely inform you about your modulation This problem can be caused by a defective AMC (Automatic Modulation Control) stage in the receiver circuit. Also, there will be no modulation upon transmit.

One other thing could be causing this lack of receive audio. Defective wiring or switching in the microphone can result in no audio. Additionally, in many radios, a missing mike will not allow receive, because the microphone connection completes the RX (Receive) circuit.

1. Check the antenna system, and fix any problems.
2. Check mike, or substitute another one.
3. Using meter, and/or another radio for listening on same channel, check power and receive.
4. You can probably fix 1, 2 and 3 yourself, or with the aid of a friend.
5. AMC problem in radio (as described above) will require professional service from a CB (Citizens Band) repair facility.

The above suggestions and advice will assist in repairing the majority of the symptoms described.

What would be the best settings on a pyramid arctic 1000 watt amp for one JL audio w1 12

Your sub is a 4ohm woofer, running it in bridged mode + on right connection - on left connect as market on sub will give the best output. Your sub is rated at 75w to 300w and in this configuration will be getting just over 100w which about all the amp can provide with your sub/amp combo.
I don't know where they get the 1000w rating from either? the maximum the amp can possibly provide is 150w if running a 2ohm woofer in bridged mode.

What is the value of the resistor that burns up when to much RF power is input?

Hi wrightjc2,
Most common burned resistor are those with low resistance because it acts like a fuse to avoid further damaged to some parts if shorts,overload happened. But still best to have a schematic diagram to identify the burned one. If you haven't a schematic you may get the resistance of the resistor, measure it to the middle where the burned cut out, add the resistance from one half side to other half side. You may now have an Idea what may be the value of the burned resistor.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

How do i set radio stations on my car stereo j.v.c. kd s6060

Select radio from the source and select FM as the band. Now use an auto search or a manual search and as the signal locks you can hold on the preset button ( start from1) to be memorized on the set. you can repeat this for all the other stations. Punch in the frequency if you know it and memorize.

Your antenna is probably still to long. You need to do a few things to see if your antenna is too long or too short. Here is a link to something I found that is very informative, and a post on how to do what you need to do. there is also a thread on the site that has common problems for high swr.

here is common problems for SWR

Radio in my ford fiesta Reg 51, 2001 has stopped working.

it seem like a problem with the internal tuner. Somehow it detects diffrent frequency now, i am not familiar with frequency used in aircrafts, but I would gues they use higher frequency that FM bandwith. Capacitor lessen in value when they fail, so that would cause the local oscillator in your radio to detect higher frequency. As far as fixing them you would have to be an expert in radio comunication electronics. I for one a novice when it comes to how demodulation processes work and all that. Best solution is to put another radio, or you can take it to a CB shop. They maybe able to fix that. CB shops are usually around truck stops, because they service the CB radios that truckers use.
