Check your aerial for open/short circuit/power wiring to cb in truck/upgrade the fuse by 1 amp/mike wiring (tx/rx) if the cb shop could'nt find anything wrong then the faults in the truck/aerial/power? or the cb shops not up to much! you could have a faulty output transistor in the cb if all else fails?

Where can I take my radio for repair in Wisconsin

I did a google search and the only CB shop I found was this one. Unfortunately there are not a lot of CB shops around any more. You may have to send it out to one for repair. Most do business over the internet now, and rely on shipping the radios. there are a bunch out there.

You can google any of these, or just CB repair.

Bells cb
Sparkys cb shack
radio active radios

There are a lot on the net that will do repairs via shipping.

No transmit audio on my magnum deltaforce

Do you have receive? Make sure the radio is on CB and not PA. It happens. Try a different mike and make sure that is not the issue. Make sure your SWR is 1-1:5 and no higher than 2. You can loose a lot of your signal from a high SWR but SWR will not make it so you have no audio. You may have to replace the final transistor. Try this too. Take an external speaker and hook it into the PA port in the back of your CB and switch your CB to PA. If you key down your mic and hear your voice out of the external speaker your voice chip is good. Let me know if any of this helps. If I had a CB in my shop, this is how I would start the checking. Good luck.

No power to radio in trk have 13.5 volts to radio 257 magnum

Ensure that the wiring is correct. Also make sure that the CB's AC is still functioning correctly. Charge your truck's batteries and test the CB on a fixed electrical output (indoor outlet). Also check to see if the power cord is the correct wattage output for the radio.

Hope this helps!

Galaxy 2527 all works except no dead key wattage.

if you are talking on SSB then their is never a dead key wattage.
SSB uses all modulation, no dead key.
