Re: midland 75-785

Given the fact that when you key up the mic you should not hear any thing because the receiver section is "turned off" (no antenna and the speaker is muted). This would seem to indicate that the switch the headset controls which allow the change over from RX to Tx is bad or that the circuit in the CB unit which the head set plugs into is having a problem. Do you hear the same flutter without the headset? Try to get another headset or test one out just to see if the problem is eliminated by using a known good headset.

When i turn on the midland 100m cb, I don't hear anything. The antenna is connected. Even when I key the mike, the needle doesn't move.

What about the Microphone you are using---Is it the right one for this model? If its not a Mic problem then its a burnt transistor in your board. Keep trying something with the Mic. May have to get it serviced at a repair shop. Sorry,can't help much.

I have a Midland CB Car with no mike or a car power pluge, the model # is 70 - 336B and the serial # is 760408

Your midland CB will use a standard 4 pin wired CB plug which is most common for most mics sold today. Your power cord will be a standard 3 pin CB power cord which again is most common with CB's today. You need not purchase a "radio specific" cord or mic. Cobra, Uniden, Midland all the same mic pin out and power cords. Good luck.

When I key my mic the people that I am trying to talk to only hear a sound that sounds like an air horn. Why is this?

Either the microphone is faulty, or there is a fault with the modulator. Try a new microphone or check the connections, failing that take it to a rig doctor.

New hand held Midland CB Model #75-785 that will not transmit

Try asking any onrt CB'ers if they can hear you at all.

Could be 2 things -

#1 - you are really too close.

#2 - you've blown the output stage of your rig by keying the mic without an aerial fitted.
- This is very common, and most repair centres are used to dealing with this.
If you are up to electronic repair, it's possible to DIY repair.
Could also be an antenna mismatch or fault.

Help me!!!

SWR OK? Is it throwing a dead-key carrier? No carrier? Midlands many times will show what looks like a processed modulation signal but is not going out your finals on the radio, and out the antenna. Suggest an external in-line meter to see if there really is a transmitted signal. If there is a signal, look for a broken/bad wire at the mics plug-in end. If no signal on the add-on meter, suspect an audio chip or final that's defective. All three are fixable at a GOOD CB Shop.

Converting a different brand of mic for a midland CB

This should be a typical Midland pinout. If you are using a generic 4 pin mic that is wired to cobra/Uniden, all you have to do is switch pin 1 & 2, then 3 & 4.

Not all mics are color coded the same with their wires.

I recently purchaced 2 Midland CB radios and headsets to go on two motorcycles. When I use them I get excessive feedback. It appears that the metal motorcycle handlebars interfere with the rubber antenna....

The problem is with the headsets, not the motorcycle. If the headsets are generic they may not have the proper mic connections. How do the radios work without the headsets?
