Re: midland 95 plus
Again another radio with illegal mods to go out of freq bands and FM is not authorized here by the FCC in the USA. I won't provide solutions to anyone with these radipo types. You want more bands, freq.s, power? Go Ham..
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

there is what is known as the Quick and Dirty way, to add talkback to almost any CB radio. You will need a 130 Ohm 1/4 watt resistor. Open the radio and find the two mounting points for the external speaker jack and PA audio jack, you will want to solder the resistor across from the Positive connection of the PA jack to the Ground connection for the External speaker jack. This will give you talkback, and eliminate any feedback when the microphone is held at a normal operating distance away, Just remember, (This could potentially damage your radio if done improperly, I will not be held liable for anything that you do to your radio.) However, when done correctly this is a perfectly safe modification, and will allow you to monitor your output audio, as it is being transmitted. You can adjust the size of the resistor to your liking, however, I do not recommend anything lower than 100 Ohm, as there will be more potetial for squealing/feedback.
great radio but I own one and never again will I get one . To add talk back you must take off the top cover,solder a 33 ohm resistor across the pa and the external speaker outputs. If it doesn't work then try another resistor but this is the way to do it . If you want it on a variable then you attach two wires from each side of the resistor to a switch and you have it. I'm trying to get rid of mine but nobody wants to buy it.cheap.
The Midland radio you have is NOT capable of FM transmit & receive. It is a Citizen's Band radio that operates on channels 1 thru 40 that are assigned to the 26.965-27.405 MHz frequency range. These are the standard 40 Ch CB frequencies in the U.S. (and may not be legal for use in other parts of the world without a license from your country's communications authorities). It also offers Weather Band reception - again these are US frequencies that may or may not even be used at all in the UK. Since the radio only displays a channel number, you don't actually know the frequency you're monitoring or transmitting on. Your friends on CH 5 may be in a completely different band.
Even if they are on the same frequency, the fact that they are operating in FM mode means that you would hear something - but it may not be intelligible - and the same would be for them listening to you transmit in AM mode. If you could have them switch their radio to AM, all would be fine. I suspect they use FM as there is much less static when compared to AM.
If they won't change to FM, you'll either have to stop trying to talk to them or buy a radio capable of FM (and make sure it has the same frequencies as theirs!).
For 11 meter (CB) the standard 40 channels will be the exactly same as the "EU" set of frequencies (channels). However the "UK" 11 meter (40 channels) and the U.S.A. 40 11 meter (40channels CB) will not work together at all. This includes any actual Citizen Band radio, excluding Export 10 an 12 meter radios often labeled as "CB'S" which they are not.
Modding your CB for more channels puts the radio into Ham bands which you need a license to transmit on, also modding a CB violates FCC part 95 rules and is therefor illegal to transmit with and the hams report most illegal transmitting on there band
there is no transmission on FM because CB is at 26 to 27Mhz on the AM Band and as with your car radio FM starts around 88Mhz. the other reason is tha one one modulates amplatude(AM) slightly to cary the signal, FM modulates the frequincy slightly to carry the transmission.
if you want to talk on FM you might want to become a Amateur "Ham" Radio Operator.
I'm guessing that you bought the CB from a person not a company the CB band is between 26Mhz and 27Mhz unfortunately your CB was Modded to talk on Ham radio frequency's what i would suggest is one of two things if you are good at electricalsoldering get a schematic and take out the mod or look on-line for a ham radio store like ham radio outlet near you and see if they can un modd it.
if you bought it from a store return it or talk to midland to see if they can fix/reset it at http://www.midlandradio.com/Contact-Us
one other thing until the radio is fixed it is not FCC part 95 or 97 compliant and is therefor illegal to transmit with it
