I dont really have a problem

I just need to know the frequency of LSB and USB on a tone, of lets say 27.205.. My mind keeps saying LSB 27203.7 and USB 27207.3 Have been having to play follow the leader with some folks...R.B.

Is it off on both upper and lower sideband? how about AM? Did someone mod it so that the clarifier works on transmit too? Hope not.
If it is off on LSB adjust CT2 next to C104 and for upper side band CT1 next to C105. You will be tweeking on a capacitor in series with a crystal. caution as it could stop it from transmitting (oscillating) if it isn't set right. best if you use a frequency counter to see if the stage is working right on frequency. Here is a diagram hope you know how to read one. If you dont and you attempt to tweek on this and that, you have a great chance that you could foul it up to the point it wont work at all or sound really bad. The main thing is to narrow it down where the problem is: Is it just LSB or USB or both? If both do not tweek on C1 or C2. I would say it is the 11Mhz crystal area. meaning the problem could be a bad varactor diode, even a resistor or capacitor failure in that portion couldmake it off frequency as the varactor is voltage controlled. By varying the voltage to it, the capacitance changes and therefore changing frequency.
If both uper and lower sideband are off then I suppose AM is off too. the reason you are not being heard as well. Adjust CT3 to bring it back on frequency. You got it CT3 if upper and lower and AM is off or if only lower is off CT1, if only upper is off CT2.
Good luck. I am not responsible for your actions. I am only giving my opinion and logic on this. here is the diagram, dont hurt yourself.....

Galaxy 959 Testing TP3 for AM, LSB, USB with FC-347 or what other freq. counter can be used for this?

An external freq counter will always do a better test then the one on the unit . Do you have an oscilloscope? A function generator will also have a freq counter . Now the ultimate is a spectrum analyzer. you don't need all these but the function generator will work fine.

Ihave a gargeled recive sound

Check the position of the mode selector switch. You may be receiving a SSB (single side band) transmission that is not on the exact same frequency as you or, your radio is in AM or FM mode. You will need to select either USB or LSB (upper or lower side band) and vary the clarifier knob until the sound becomes intelligible. If the sound does not become clear, try the other side band and repeat varying the clarifier knob.

Conversely, if you are in USB or LSB mode and there is a transmission on AM or FM, it will have the same garbled sound. Try changing the mode to AM and the FM. If it does not become clear, it is likely a SSB transmission and you are not on the exact same frequency of the transmission you are hearing. Vary the clarifier knob until it becomes clear - or change to the other side band if needed and try the clairfier again.

The short story is that you must be in the same mode and on the same exact frequency. When in AM or FM, this is less of a problem as these are much more wide banded signals than SSB signals.

The 2990 is really a 50 watt 10 meter amateur radio - but is geared to CBer's as it is easily modified to work in the CB frequency range and the so called "free band" between USA's CB (11 meters) and worldwide amateur 10 meter bands. Be careful transmitting this radio on CB frequencies as it violates FCC rules for power output there - and transmitting in the 28MHz - 29.7MHz requires a valid amateur radio license. Fifty watts on ham frequencies is tiny compared to the 1500 watts permitted. Why not get your ham license (here's how) and leave the "Chicken Band" (and all it entails) behind. You won't miss it!

I hope this helps and good luck!

How to use ssb usb am cb radio

  • Well, AM is Amplitude Modulation and Sideband suppresses the carrier and uses only the top half (upper sideband) or lower half (lower sideband) of the wave.

  • Whether using AM, USB or LSB you are on the same frequency although if someone is on USB and you are on LSB you will not be able to understand what the other person is saying because you are using different parts of the wave. So 27.185 (channel 19) on AM, USB or LSB is still 27.185.

  • If you have further questions please let me know.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.

Cannot select USB or SSB.Displays LSB or LISB? Very poor reception

On the Satellit 750 you have a button marked SSB. If you have selected a shortwave band then you can press the SSB button. Pressing the button repeatedly will toggle between LSB and USB.

You will need to know the exact frequency and the broadcast time, and the side band. Turn the radio on. Select a frequency which you know carries SSB signal and wait. Those that broadcast on SSB are not radio stations, maybe ham radio operators.

You can also select a short wave band, press the SSB button once or twice to select the side band and launch the automatic tuning system. It will scan the meter band and stop for a few second when it receives a strong enough signal. If you are able to perceive a clear signal on LSB or USB then you found a broadcaster. Some radios just have SSB and you cannot choose the side.
Personally, when I buy a radio I always insist on SSB but I have never been lucky tuning in an SSB signal. I keep trying once in while.

Not keying up after chanel34 when if it is on high tone and neddel is not going to 30db on usb or lsb it is cobra 148gtl dx

It sounds like the radio may need to be fully aligned. Sounds like its not adjusted to transmit properly in the correct frequency range.

has any one attempted to broadband this radio? if so it could have been done wrong.

I could tell you the alignment procedure but you would need a watt meter, oscilloscope, and a volt meter.

As well its an in depth procedure. So some electronic experience is necessary.

Please let me know if you have the equipment to do the alignment and I will get you the info. If not you best bet is to take it to a radio shop, or send it to a repair shop. If you are going to send it I recommend

How do u adjust the frequency readout on a dx55v?

This radio has three modes, USB, LSB and AM. Each one has a voltage adjustment to center the frequency and they look like metal cans. You do need a analyzer to make this adjustment or at the very least a known frequency standard. Temperature can affect this display.

U mean on sideband? Frequency counter only useful on other than sideband operation. This does not mean the carrier insertion osc. is on frequency. If it needs adjustment, your voice will sound high/ low on transmit. Incoming signals will sound right after adjusting the osc.

You'll need to connect Frequency Counter to C252 & adjust:

USB Frequency: 10.6975Mhz adjust L126 in receive mode
LSB Frequency: 10.6925Mhz adjust L127 in receive mode
