Question about Connex 3300 240-Channels Base CB Radio

1 Answer

I have a Connex3300hp. Radio has NO mods done to it. Worked well until a week ago when it started to squeal on key up. This radio is being used as a base. The SWR reading is 1.5 across the board. iam using an Astatic 636 NC mic. Any help would be appreciated.

First of all check that the battery is good. Sometimes when a battery in the mic starts going bad the radio squeals. Another thing could be the connection imn the mic plug could be going bad. Perhaps a frayed wire making contacting with another pin. Check that as well. Also if the mic gain on the radio is set to high it can cause this symptom as well. Please let me know. If this helped.............

Connex 3300hp big betty transmits fine on low power setting but when switched to high power hardly any modulation


well fellow truck driver here goes. When you take any radio back to a repair shop they are required by law to set it back to its original settings. I could fix it for you if you ever got to Massachusetts but you need it now so I would tell you this.Take it to a very good cb shop , tell them what went on and that you would like that big radio sound back. thats it.

About 3 weeks ago a friend had to disconnect the battery to change the head light bulb. After reconnecting the battery, I know longer had use of the radio. If I try to turn on the radio power it states...


the radio is an anti-theft type and needs a code to reset after losing power. The code is usually in the paper-work obtained when the car was purchased. the code is 5-6 digits long and is on a plastic card with the radio serial number.

the oil life message will continue to show until it is reset. With key off, hold the trip odometer reset button down. now, while still holding it down turn the key to on but don't start. Count to 20. The oil life message should be out and reset.

tires rubbing. could be a plastic trim piece in the fender well area has come loose from when the headlight bulb was replaced. Look under there and see if you can spot where the tire is rubbing. Turn the wheel one way all the way and check, then the other way and check.

I also have another cobra 29 ltd classic and it works fine but i cant talk or hear what other factory cb's can hear, it is supposed to be tuned and peaked and i have a wilson 2,000 antenna, and i cant talk...


nearly all problems are caused by poorly tuned or untuned antennas. a good antenna system with a cheap stock radio will out perform a great tuned radio with a bad antenna system any day of the week. if you dont believe me, check the firestik antenna website's tech notes. or wilson's tech notes.

Squeals when keyed up. Detecting talk back.


ITS JUST NOT THE TURNER MIC IT HAPPENS WITH ALL BASE MICS HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 2995DX WITH A ASTATIC D-104 & 1104-C AND ALSO ANY TURNER I HAVE USED BUT I CAN RUN A ASTATIC MOBILE D-104M6B OR RED DEVIL AND NO SQUEAL HAVE YOU TRIED GROUNDING THE CASE OF THE RADIO IT IS RF FEED BACK SQUEAL SO MY SUGGESTION TO YOU IS TO RUN A 48 COPPER GROUND ROD INTO THE GROUND AND RUN A NICE GROUND WIRE TO THE BACK OR THE CHASIS OF THE RADIO AND IF YOU ARE USING ANY EXTERNAL AMPLIFIERS ALSO GROUND THEM AND YOUR SQUEAL WILL BE ILLMINATED

RCI 2970 squeels until you unplug the external speaker and plug i


Strange! I used to run almost the same kinda setup but with a super scanner omnibeam, i modded mine myself. At 1 time i had a squeal problem it was in the mic if i remember correctlly i ran a external wire from the screw on the spring inside the mic where the cord comes out to the radio chassis and it stopped it give it a try. I used a simple speaker wire, also you might want to try grounding the radio to the power supply. Sounds like a ground problem! I have a awsome mod for that radio that would enable you to run a regular amp with it and also would enable you to talk local without engaging the amp in the radio using only 4 watts! Let me know how it works out for you with the squeal? if intrested in that mod contact via email at (noteethontop@yahoo.com). put 2970 in the subject line. Take care.
