I keyed the mike with the gauge set on 10 watts by mistake. Now the gauge seems to be reading low. It also seems to be reading high on the swr .

My 25LTD CB has been tuned and peaked. I just replaced the meter and it spikes hard when keyed. How can I adjust it without degrading the tune?


It could be the variable resistor that sets the meter movement or it could be the person that tuuned and peaked it didn't know what they were doing and set a high dead key. The radio should key low and then swing high. You must first track down which one is the problem. You will need a good watt meter for that. If it isn't a problem with too high a dead key then go to CBtricks and look up your model of radio and find the "VR" variable resistor that sets the meter. Open up the radio and turn the resistor to match the meter scale with what the watt meter reads.

I have inherited a west bend slow cooker model 84624 and dont have a manuel for it. I am concerned with the 300 watt is this normal? Or is that very low? I dont know how long to cook in this or amounts...


  • 1 Use setting 1 (warm #1) only to warm rolls and muffins. At 140 degrees Fahrenheit, this setting should not be used for cooking.
  • 2 Use setting 2 (warm #2) to keep cooked foods warm until they're ready to be served.
  • 3 Use settings 3, 4 and 5 (low, medium high) for cooking. The setting you choose determines the length of time the food will cook. A typical meal with meat and vegetables needs 7 to 10 hours to cook at the low or #3 setting, 4 to 6 hours at the medium or #4 setting, and 2 to 3 hours at the high or #5 setting.

  • All West Bend slow cooker models eventually simmer at the boiling point, or 212 degrees. The setting simply determines how quickly the cooker will reach that temperature.


    300 watt is not a huge consumption of electricity, depending of course on, how often, how long and how high temperature.

    Need to know where to set low power set up for amp thanks


    There is no specific dead key setting for an ampifier. Each amplifier requires different dead key to operate at it peak effeciency AND to sound the best it can. If I knew what type of amp it was I could give you a better idea. Just for a reference point I will give you these numbers. For your basic amplifier ( 2 pill - 4 pill non high-drive) you could safely set the carrier at 1 - 3 watts. This is why the majic number for most people is a 2 watt dead key. For a High-Drive amplifier you really have a broad range of settings for deadkey. Generally anywhere between 2 - 8 watts. Some can even handle 10 watts. This DOES NOT mean that they need a HIGH dead key to operate properly. Just FYI, what you run into with improper dead key is either a really choppy, splattery, overmodulated sound with a deadkey that is to low, OR, a really pinched up, tight sound with a dead key that is to high. Also, a HIGH dead key can cause an amplifier to over heat, causing the transistors (pills) to fail prematurely.
    To set your dead key "properly" you really should have a technician "match up" the radio with the amplifier. This means, he will hook up the radio and amp that you plan to use with one another in line and tune (set dead key) the radio to "match" the amp. This will give you the optimal audio and performance without overdriving the amp.
    Hope this helped. Lost Jeep, Athens GA, 10-7 !!

    Need a good setting on dead key for connex 4300hp for both low and high setting....its putting out almost 130 watts, thanks


    put it @ 1-5 on low and max of 10-15w on high so it doesn't kill the transistors 130 is too high.

    Does anyone know the pod too turn for lowering the watts on my connex it is too high and i would like to turn it back also the modulation thanks


    You have to adjust the high key first so make sure you're rf power is on high, hope you have a meter set it on the 20 watt scale, key up and turn vr 13
    located in back of radio infront of where you're coax connector is until it keys around 12 watts, thats where most connex 33hp should be set,now go to low power and key adjust vr 16 right net to the otherone down to about 3 watts, now you can drive a liners. Mod is Vr 2 right below them two. whistle in mic and turn to get the mod you want.

    The blue gauge is the low side. It should read between 30 to 60 PSI depending on temprature. The red is the high side, and should read roughly 3 times the outside temp. Good Luck

    Tunring up a cobra 150 gtl/dx


    Um... What?? This is hooked to a switch? CB radio by FCC regulations is only supposed to have a max of 4 watts total output. If you can flip it to 7 watts dead key, you are doing really good. It won't do much more then that. It sounds like its set up to run on a linear amplifier, which cannot have more then 3 watts dead key transmitting into it.

    Dead key, and modulation are different. You may have a meter that only reads dead key, and won't see the modulation. This radio is probably swinging close to 15-20 watts. you need a meter that can read PEP, Peak envelope power. Cheap meters only read AVG, or average power, witch will only show your dead key.

    7 watts dead key is really good for that radio.especially since stock only has 4 watts. you cannot get any higher then that without changing finals.

    at 3 watt dead key, or 7 watt dead key, your modulation wattage is still swinging much higher.

    Also, you will get more swing with a lower dead key any way, which is better if you want it to be loud.

    Leave it alone. its probably set just right.
