You can't "turn it up". You may be able to carefully compress or spread the coil windings near the Final Output Transistor (Q 14 a 2SC 2078) to get a bit more out of it but it isn't a real "Big Time" CB like the Cobra 29's. Sorry.

SOURCE: How far can that midland

Running most any regular cb, including this one barefoot (with no kicker), having a good antenna, set up with a good ground plane or a no-goundplane antenna, good coax; basically everything in good working order, you can usually bank on about 4 to 5 miles crisp and clear, and at least 6 to 10 miles fairly clear. Of course the further out you get it will start to fade out.

Some radios do better than others, but those are the general numbers I have seen in my years of experience.

SOURCE: receivers complain about squeeling noise from my

I had the same (squealing) problem on transmit with the Midland 1001Z when I used it indoors as a base unit. The problem was my power supply: it broke into oscillation when drawing more than 150 mA at 13.8V. The 1001Z draws about 150 mA on Receive, and much more (but only about 900 mA) on Transmit. If using the 1001Z as a base unit, I suggest you power it with a fully-charged car battery indoors, or test your power supply to check if it can't supply the required 1 Amp, approx., on Transmit. It's a GREAT radio, just give it a good power supply. My power supply was defective out of the box, but now I have a good one and get great reports on signal strength and audio quality. Remarkable, for the low price and 3 year warranty. Good luck!

How do you turn up the power on a midland 1001z


have you ever listened to a radio that 4 channels away and you have to go to that channel to hear what they are saying and they sound great? Well actually they don\'t because if they did they wouldn\'t be splashing you 4 channels away.A cb radio is supposed to put out no more than 4.5 - 5 watts max. thats because you will be the one doing the splashing if you turn it up to much.For one thing not only do you have to turn up the modulation and the power but also the voltage it takes to operate the radio at the higher voltage and this is the killer ,you will still sound better at the lower voltage but you will have no voltage to run the power so now its not activated so you turned it up for nothing.

How do you turn the power up on midland 1001z


first you need a watt meter, then a service manual. people think that the more power you have the better the radio. yeah it sounds great but not over the space of 40 channels , and you can go up itno the amature band and wipe them out also and the lower 40 will also be splashed. Thats why if you want it done good take it to someone that knows what they are doing.

My midland 1001z has power to it but all it does is give a humming sound!The mic. will key up and the tx light comes on but when I release the mic. the humming sound gets louder,is the unit screwed? thks...


If you are using a power supply. Get you a better power supply(full filtered) RADIO SHACK has many 12 volt 3 amp models. Run power wires away from radio about 10 feet away to eliminate hum. AM does hum when its near power lines, household appliances. Keep it away from TV's etc. Turn off TV then listen to it. Make sure you have good outdoor antenna like Antron A99 18ft. Fiberglass on Tv pole or Tower. If its inside car --its the engine. you need a Radio Shack Power filter. A coil of wire wrapped around a core and big capacitor on the (+) side shunted to ground by a 470uf Capacitor. Turn off engine then listen.

A Midland 1001z with a 103 whip ant. They are both NEW. When I turned on the radio all I heard was like the power sound but no volume! I even tried a exturnal speaker! Nothing! Any IDEA's????


Is the mic good? If there is a problem with the mic, it will not put the radio into receive mode and you will hear nothing.

Also make sure the radio is not on PA mode, or make sure the squelch isn't too high.

there are also times when it is really quiet on the radio and you won't hear any static. keep this in mind.
