SOURCE: Knob setting of front of radio (Connex 3300)

The best way to set it is to get you a radio check, go to channel 19 and ask someone about three to five miles away to give you a radio check, start with your modulation all the way open and go from there.....hope this was helpful...

SOURCE: cobra 29, no rx, no tx, pa dose not work, good

Not sure which model you have as there are at least 13 cobra 29's. I am using the LTD as an example. You say good mic? Is it made for this model? If it is good then I would have to say the final audio stage is not working. The TA72222AP is the IC that is the final audio amplifier. Check pin 1 of the TA72222AP ic for 12 volts. If 12 volts is present then replace the audio IC TA72222AP. If 12 volts is not present then you have power supply problems that are internal. The conclusion I have made is based on no rx audio, ( could have been the jack at the pa and ext spkr) but you say they don't work either, also no meter movement during modulation check (that does not need a spkr to make the meter move) so yes I'm 99.99% sure its the final audio stage is a bad. If your model is not the LTD then the IC could be different but still the same audio final is bad. Replace the part which should be fairly inexpensive. If it uses a metal heat sink be sure to apply heat sink grease when installing new part.

How can i disconnect the talk back on a connex 3300 plus? pleasa be specific on directions. thanks


in older connex 3300's you cannot disable the talk back. Its part of the audio chain. If you disable the talk back you will loose your audio. There are 2 things you can do.

Hook a relay to the speaker so that when the radio key's id disconnects the speaker. (Big pain, not worth the trouble.)

The other will not disable the talk back but it will stop any squealing.

Use a noise canceling mic. An RK-56 will work great. You will get no squealing with that mic.

Hi, my name is John. Try a external speaker, plug it in the back of radio, turn the RF GAIN to MAX. Turn the SQUELCH all the way to left, make sure the select knob is on CB, and on AM...try all this and if that's does not do it, let me know, I will post other steps here,.... hope this was very helpful....

When I transmit it feeds through my stereo


if you are using a kicker (amplifier) alot of times they will cause it make sure your wires dont cross any of your radio wires under the dash
you can buy noise filters for stereos they are generally used for car amps but i have heard of people using them because of cbs too
