It depends upon how you plan to use them. They have limited range and will not interface with other nautical radios. If close in and talking to another boat, they will work fine.

My Solara Dsc radio, which has worked well for several years, suddenly began blowingthe 2 amp fuse on the red power line whenever the transmit button was pushed on the mic. Why?


No worries here.
According to Uniden, the 6 amp fast blow fuse is the correct one.
Not entirely sure why there'd be a 2 amp with your old radio, but I suspect the radio is good.

My Uniden Atlantis fell off of my boat dash and now it will not work. Can it be fixed, if so where, and about how much?


Unfortunately, you would be able to pretty much buy a new radio for what it would cost to bench test the old one. (I'd keep the old radio for parts though.

Hope this helps you out.

Here's a good one for an expert. Our newish coastguard boat fitted with 3 VHF radios - all working correctly, recently had a wireless headset system installed. We get huge amounts of electrical nosie over...


From your info the GND & shield (could be the same) are crossed. or one is open. A shield as in the antenna coax or an isolated ground as in an internal type coax in the interconnect cable of the wireless headset assembly. I suggest doing a 'BOARD WALK' routine, Move the wireless assy from one VHF unit to another, the problem follows-bad head set assy. If not, return to original VHF, problem returns bad internal connection in VHF unit. Please let me know the outcome.

With engine running on boat, radio transmitts with


This is almost always caused by a poor ground. I would suggest you run your ground wire (larger the better) back right to the negative terminal of the battery.

Hope this is helpful.

Which antennae to use with a Uniden Oceanus radio?


Marine two way radios operate on 156 MGZ. You have to use an antenna desinated for that purpose. Type marine vhf antenna on google search and it will pop-up lots of web sites.good luck

I just purchased a uniden solara dsc.I HOOKED IT UP AND THE NOAA WORKS BUT I TRIED TALKING AND NOTHING HAPPENED.(I have a tractor with a radio and neither of us could hear each other).


The Uniden Solara is a MARINE RADIO not a CB. Marine (boat) radios operate in the VHF-Hi range and CB is in the VHF-Lo range. You also need a license to operate a marine radio, or you can identify yourself with the name of your boat but you MUST be in the water.

No chann. 70 on Uniden 525 marine radio


You can't "select" channel 70, nor can you talk on channel 70. Channel 70 is reserved for the exchange of digital data between radios.

And it is not possible to address an "emergency" (do you mean distress? or urgency?) message to an individual recipient.

Your radio is not allowing you to do any of these things because it has been (correctly) programmed to discourage you from doing things that would be illegal.

If you set up a routine call with your friend (or anyone else), you should find that once the two radios have completed their (almost instantaneous) exchange on Channel 70, they will both switch to whichever working channel you had selected, and he will get a beeping sound to tell him that there is an incoming call.

Sounds to me like both radios are doing exactly what they are supposed to.

Cobra 29 LTD cb radio


Strange problem indeed, this is why I don't like Cobra radios, they're no good. But try adjusting the receive gain on the radio, if that doesn't work, you might need to check the antenna, check if it is connected properly, or if the antenna actually works. Honestly though, if you want a solid performance radio, go Galaxy or Uniden, no Cobra. I worked with radios for years, and Cobra has failed to meet my expectations for a good radio, they may have a lot of features, but they have no reliability.

Sorry :(
Anyway, I hope this helps somewhat.
