Re: GE 3-5814a cb

Sounds like a voltage regulator to me. the speaker would not have anything to do with the transmit, the receive yes but, with no transmit or receive try the voltage regulator number on it will be ta7217 it will have roughly 10 legs on it and it will be attached to a heat sink or the chassis of the radio. also you might look at where the antenna wire connector screws on to the radio, on the inside of the radio on the back of the connector there should be a wire coming from the back of the plug and connecting to the circuit board , it could have came loose. Good luck.

First of all i would check the speaker, can you get feedback or even a 2Kilohertz tone? Is there any popping or cracking coming from the speaker?

Hello i have a yaesu ft-2900 it receives just fine but when i transmit it shows error. this radio is brandnew

Hi Gerald,

When you say you used the software to download frequencies, do you mean as in from the internet, or did you have to input frequencies via the software on your PC?

There is a difference, that's the reason I ask.

If, by using the software you manually input the frequencies, then did you input both the output and input frequencies or just output for each channel?

If the latter is true, and you are trying to access another user via a repeater, then that is the error.

Repeaters generally, require both the input frequency = the frequency you transmit on, and the output = the frequency you receive on.

Without both frequency pair, you won't be getting out, and no won can hear you, as you are basically transmitting as a simplex station on a repeater allocatted channel, hence the error message on your display.

The radio you have is used by many amateurs & CB operators, and both group utilise repeaters within their allocated spectrum, excluding 27 meg CB, which is simplex only, but with SSB included.

I hope this answers your query.

Best regards,

I have two motorola aux4100 radios. I can not get them receive. When I key it up to transmit, the red LED of the transmitting unit comes on and the green LED on the receiving unit comes on but does not...

I would guess you have a PL set on the receive side, and not on the Transmit side. So the audio is being blocked by the PL (as it is supposed to be!) Check your programming, make sure you have the same PL on tx and rx.

Voice recognition on motorola t5500

That means that it will Transmit, like pressing the "Talk" button, BUT ONLY when it hears the "Voice" it was "Trained" on. So this is so No-one else could use this unit. With this method. You "Identify" yourself, and after that every-time you speak, the Transmitter is keyed, and the channel is opened and the voice sent, when you stop talking,it goes back to receive, again. Some are less sophisticated, in that they are really a "Sound Switch" and when the unit "Hears" a "Voice" it, switches OFF receive, and ON the transmitter, and Transmits the audio out.

Poor mic

whats the problem with your radio?
No Transmitted audio = mic cord faulty
Poor Rx / Tx power = poor SWR on the aerial
Dead radio = fuse or power supply faulty or protection diode faulty

Staying keyed up after button release

I have never seen this problem before, check if the VOX is activated, this could cause to transmit the radio, but the voice must be transmited. check if the Accesory connector is not dirty, clogged or damaged
