Question about Superstar Radio Communications

I have an HR 2510 that shows no dead key watts on AM ????

Modulates fine on AM just not showing any deadkey watts and sideband works good showing watts with a deadkey and when modulating all other functions working fine.

    How's it going, thanks for your reply. I don't see a modulation kit installed, and knobs are correct. I was wondering if someone might have turned something down. I'm getting around 12 W on AM when modulating, and nothing with a dead key. And sideband working fine with about 25 close to 30 w. Thanks again as this is a fairy new hobby for me and learning on my own.

This sounds exactly backwards, you should have a carrier on AM with some forward swing, on SSB (sideband) there should be no carrier & all modulation (forward swing). Could you have the settings mixed up or has somebody put a modulation kit in your radio & messed something up or maybe one of the knobs has been removed & not replaced correctly ? Just a couple of things you might look into.

    Hello,

    If you are getting good radio reports I would not change a thing, it sounds like your radio has been set up to drive the heck out of a tube amp. I used to set radio's up just like this to drive a linear, but I don't have a schematic for this radio & could not walk you thru it, if you are sounding bad try turning the mic gain down & or the volume on your power mic (if it is equipped with one). You have a great radio there that is capable of outstanding performance. Here's a link http://incolor.inebraska.com/jshorney/25... If this doesn't help looks like she's gonna have to go to the shop.

What is Dead Key on a CB Radio?


Deadkey is slang it is CW or Carrier wave which is RF power produced before modulation/audio is mixed in which stimulates PEP wattage slang being SWING WATTS. A Watt Meter is used to measure it which is often a combination device Wattage/SWR/Modulation meter.

Need to know where to set low power set up for amp thanks


There is no specific dead key setting for an ampifier. Each amplifier requires different dead key to operate at it peak effeciency AND to sound the best it can. If I knew what type of amp it was I could give you a better idea. Just for a reference point I will give you these numbers. For your basic amplifier ( 2 pill - 4 pill non high-drive) you could safely set the carrier at 1 - 3 watts. This is why the majic number for most people is a 2 watt dead key. For a High-Drive amplifier you really have a broad range of settings for deadkey. Generally anywhere between 2 - 8 watts. Some can even handle 10 watts. This DOES NOT mean that they need a HIGH dead key to operate properly. Just FYI, what you run into with improper dead key is either a really choppy, splattery, overmodulated sound with a deadkey that is to low, OR, a really pinched up, tight sound with a dead key that is to high. Also, a HIGH dead key can cause an amplifier to over heat, causing the transistors (pills) to fail prematurely.
To set your dead key "properly" you really should have a technician "match up" the radio with the amplifier. This means, he will hook up the radio and amp that you plan to use with one another in line and tune (set dead key) the radio to "match" the amp. This will give you the optimal audio and performance without overdriving the amp.
Hope this helped. Lost Jeep, Athens GA, 10-7 !!

Can a 19 ultra power be turned down to 1 watt? If so where?


Yes it can, but it requires the addition of some components. It isn't really a straight forward install. It needs some reworking. In my opinion, not worth the trouble.

Sounds like you want to run a linear amplifier. If you really want to run an amp, get a better radio to do it. There really is no other reason to lower the dead key that low. Also, 1 watt might be too low. May not drive the amp well.

If you just want to make the radio swing, 1 watt is way way too low. You will have barely any carrier and the radio will sound like ****. That radio stock dead keys 2.5 watts. That's perfect for swing. Now you just need to have more modulation. Find DM1 and unsolder 1 leg and pull it out of the board. Now you will have full modulation. You will deadkey 2.5 and swing to about 15 watts.

If you want to run an amp, get a good radio. If you like cobra, get a cobra 29. They are fairly cheap, and sound amazing. As well it is real easy to lower the dead key in that radio.

You just have to lower your RF power so that the radio is putting out about a 2 watt dead key. Any higher and you will over drive the finals and burn out the final
