At that point if you've checked everything else the mic, and the coax, and the antenna and the mount, and still nothing? You may possibly have a radio that needs to go to a repair shop. Actually I take back my last sentence....with a radio like the General Lee, its worth quite a bit of money, and if all obvious things are checked and still nothing I'd recommend having a local radio shop open the hood and take a look. I've had many people tell me that there are no radio shops to bring thier rigs to. So if your in the same boat I'll tell you what I told you local police department or sherrifs office and ask them who does the work on their radio system....(just don't call them on the 911 line) I'm just wondering what your SWR readings were when you were using the radIo? Did you use an in line meter, or the one on the radio....cause I'm guessing your levels were high and you didn't recalibrate it and burned the primaries....sorry I don't have an easy fix answer for you....keep me posting on your progress I'm kind of curious

Number are the pod to set turn

I know what you are asking now. Open the radio and look for the modulation transformer towards the back of the radio. see the variable resistor closest to it,turn it all the way to the left while talking to someone and if they loose you then turn it all the way to the right. Put the lid back on and you're done.

Have a general lee transmittes.canhear myself talking but cant hear any response,changed mic,antan,coaix,still no change,need help

See if you can connect an external speaker and see if you get received audio. You might also see if you can connect directly to the audio output on the main board directly to see if there is detected audio.

Got a genaral lee radio that will not talk the recieve is awsome! when i key the mic the meter will begin to move but falls back. its like it wants to but it wont key, you can hear yourself on the talk...

May need some test equipment to find the fault on that one.
You could send it in to us and we can fix it.
*Just keep in mind that a new radio like that General Lee or Connex 3300 are only $199.99 MAX !!!+tax of course.. soo it depends on how much you have invested as if it is worth it to you to spend anything on it.
We do not charge to look at any radio -no bench fees-..
Let me know Ill get you any info that you need.

Cb puts out good sound but when someone try to talk to me it all you hear is static

same thing sometimes happens to me. Usually it is because the person who is talking to you might have a weaker antenna. Sometimes people put a very strong transmitter with them and talk to people but you cant talk back.
So really they can't hear you good either. Just because you are too far away.

When i talk people they can hear me but i cant hear them talk back to me

Turn up your RF gain. If that isn't the issue, then the mic may be damaged. Try a new mic.

No rx

so the swr is fine antenna has not been hit by lightning i assume as the swr would be all wacke out check to see if the rf gain is turned all the way down maybe if you have little ones they play with everything as i know all so well. or mabe the squelch was turned allt the way up if either turn squelch down all the way and turn the rf gain all the way up if not the audio chip on the rt side of the board could be shoted out if the radio has pa put switch to pa with external speaker attached key mic and talk if you here yourself talking the chip is good. by the way has the radio been tweaked any time recently it may be also alignment problem??
