RF gain is not used to control volume. It's used to adjust the sensitivity of the radio. If you have a station nearby that's very strong that you wish to listen to, turning down the RF gain will help reduce distortion and/or interference. The control for Volume is "AF Gain" (Audio Frequency Gain). You want to use it to set the volume level.

Why don't I have sound on uniden pc78ltw?


the knob that turns the radio on and off is the volume potentiaometer.turn it 1/2 wayopen.the next knob is the squelch maqke sure it is all the to the left.the next knob is the mic gain and the RF gain.Set the mic gain at 1/2 and the RF gain all the to the right.the next knob is the delta tune,set it 1/2 way the next knob is the calibration knob leave it alone.Now above those knobs are little switches .the third switch from the left is for CB/PA make sure its on CB. check the WX switch and make sure it not on a weather station. and finally the last switch to the right is called a dynamic squelch switch.Make sure it is down. with all said your radio should be on and you should be able to hear sound. If not ,take an external speaker and hook it to the external speaker plug in the back of the radio.If you hear something then you internal speaker is junk.replace it .

I have a cobra 29 Ltd chrome what is the dynamite and the rfgain and the delta tune and the talk back used for. What do you set it on


The mic gain is your output audio volume or modulation. RF Gain is you reception sensitivity. Delta tune is a gimmick it is supposed to slide the frequency a few kHz up or down for you reception of a radio that might have drifted off channel. Talkback is a tool to give you an idea of what you sound like ie quality of mic or volume or adjusting echo if you have added such a board to your radio. As far as adjustments RF gain is preferance. Mic all the way up on stock radio. Delta tune 12 o'clock. Talkback user preference. Take care......hope this was of help

My Ranger2950 has no sound??


Have a look here for info about the Ranger 2950. This is an Amateur 10 & 12 meter transceiver that enjoy some popularity due to its ability to be modified to work on the 27Mhz Citizens Band.

Make sure the Mode is set to something other than PA. A few of the first things that come to mind is the Volume, Squelch & RF Gain settings. The Volume is straight forward - choose a setting in the middle to begin. Next, set the squelch. Most radios have the squelch open when set fully counter-clockwise. As you move the squelch to this position, sound should be heard from the speaker if a signal is present. As long as there is an antenna connected, the radio should "hear" noise. If you do not hear anything, leave the Squelch fully CCW and try varying the RF Gain fully in one direction. If you still hear nothing, set the Squelch to the fully clock-wise position. Adjust the RF Gain to the opposite direction. At this point, you should have heard something - even if just static hash. If not, the volume control may be dirty. Disconnect power and rotate the volume control back and forth several times to dislodge any dirt on the volume wiper inside the radio, and try again.

Make sure that the Ext Spk jack does not have a plug inserted as it will defeat the internal speaker. Likewise, if using an external speaker, make sure it works.

Good luck!

Need to turn rf gain down inside uniden pc66xl c.b.


The radio should have a RF gain control on the front of it that should drop reception to almost nothing unless sitting side by side in very close quarters.

You could have the receiver detuned but that really makes no sense.

I dont know were the adjustment nobs should be i just got this radio and dont know that much about the galaxy 959


There are little red dots on the edge of each knob. As a starting point, try these knob positions (starting from the knob on the left)..
Adjust volume as desired.
Adjust squelch all the way counterclockwise (no squelch).
Adjust mic gain so the red dot is at the 12 o'clock position.
Adjust mic gain so the red dot is at the 12 o'clock position.
Adjust light dimmer as desired.
Adjust RF Power with the red dot at the 12 o'clock position.
Ignore talkback and clarifier for now.
Now for the 5 little slide switches...
Set all of them to the middle position.
Now you should be able to operate transmit and receive.

This is a very good radio, but there are so many adjustment knobs that you can reduce its performance if you just blindly turn knobs.
After you learn how the radio sounds and works with these average settings, play with each knob, adjusting a little and see what it does for your particular antenna setup. Do some "radio checks" with other CBers and find out what your best settings are. Also read the owners manual for guidance on what each knob does...especially mic gain (too low and you won't be heard, too high and you'll be garbled) and RF Power (to little and you won't reach out very far, too much and you'll overload local listeners). This is definitely not a beginners radio. But it is a lot of fun and will enable you to learn a lot.

Volume control inoperable


spray some tuner cleaner in the volume and rf gain pots and work them back and forth. Have you tried an external speaker to see if stock speaker is blown? Also improperly installed talk back can cause this

Subwoofer Trouble


Turn the bass gain all the way down., Turn up your your volume on bass test song. Crank up the little box next to the steering wheel wide open . Now go gradually turn up the bass gain on the RF amp until you get distortion. Turn the gain down slightly. Now you can enjoy playing the bass from one end of the little boxes setting to the other without ovrloading your amp and subs. Open a can of whoopass on anyone who tries to crank up on your gain.
