Check the unit is not on a VOX setting (voice operated microphone). If it is usually the display will have in small digits vox displayed, and you need to take it out of this mode for normal operation. If this is ok it may be a fault with the unit, and so you would have to take it back to place of purchase for repair or replacement.

When and How Should a Surge Protector Be Used on a Fixed Switch?


Common Causes of Lightning Strikes
  • Outdoor network cables or power cables are routed overhead.
  • A switch is deployed outdoors but is not properly grounded.

Damages of Lightning Strikes
  • If power cables of a switch are routed overhead in an outdoor environment, lightning strikes may burn the power supplies.
  • If network cables of a switch are routed overhead in an outdoor environment, lightning strikes may burn interfaces of the switch.
When a switch undergoes lightning strikes, overvoltage is induced by lightning on network cables and transmitted to interior of the chassis. The surge protection measures, such as lightning rod and chassis grounding cannot prevent the damage. Therefore, surge protectors or surge protection circuits are recommended.

Surge Protector Use Precautions Take the following precautions to protect a switch from lightning:
  • Ensure that the ground cable is connected to a ground bar or a ground point on the cabinet.
  • Avoid routing cables overhead in an outdoor environment. Bury cables underground or route them in steel tubes.
  • To protect network interfaces against lightning, use 8-line surge protectors (or Huawei certified 4-line surge protectors).
  • When installing a network interface surge protector, connect the IN end to terminals and the OUT end to network interfaces of the switch.
If a fixed switch is installed in a network box, follow these instructions:
  • Connect the ground cables of the switch and surge protectors to the ground bar in the network box.
  • The maximum length of a ground cable cannot exceed 40 cm, and a length of smaller than 15 cm is recommended.
  • If the network box is located outdoors and power cables are routed aerially over a long distance (more than 300 m) to the network box, it is recommended that you install a power supply surge protector in the network box. The decoupled power cable must be at least 3 m long

Why my uniden has no squech or sound but transmits


Hi



Although this question is an old one, I\'ll do my best to answer it in case someone else has the same issue. This is condition is nearly always caused by a cabling problem usually where the antenna connects to the radio. Carefully inspect the connector for obvious damage, clean the connection with silicone spray (safe for plastics) and reconnect the antenna several times. While you\'re at it, check and clean the power connections as well, both at the radio and the battery/power panel connections as the problem could be as simple as a poor ground.



This problem could also be the fault of a broken wire/poor solder joint in the PL-259 plug itself. If you\'re handy with a soldering iron, take the connector apart and make sure the centre pin connection is securely soldered as well as the ground braid soldered securely to the case of the PL-259. I\'ve included the link to Uniden\'s marine electronics owner\'s manuals and the support page. I\'ve had pretty good luck in the past when I\'ve had to contact Uniden.



Hope this helps.

-Steve

I just installed a new Sony XT-100HD HD Radio Tuner for my truck. I wanted it so i could pick up more stations and have them all sound clear. After I hooked everything up to see if it worked all I could...


It is always worth checking the aerial in any case of poor reception.

In the case of a standard mast-type aerial it is necessary for the mast to have very good continuity to the centre of the aerial plug, that the outer part of the aerial plug has good continuity to the aerial ground and thus to the vehicle bodywork and the two parts are electrically isolated from each other. A good independent radio ground connection also helps.

In the case of miniature aerials or those within a windscreen, a rear screen or rear quarter glass, the amount of signal available will be small and so an aerial preamplifier will be provided to boost the signal. The preamp might be part of the aerial or a separate unit fitted anywhere convenient. I once found one fixed to the front firewall behind the dashboard.
The preamp needs a good 12 volt supply and a ground as well as good connections to the aerial coaxial leads. The supply is usually obtained from the radio set so it is operative only when the radio is switched on. Sometimes a radio has a dedicated output but mostly the electric (automatic) aerial output must be used. If the preamp isn't working reception will typically be limited to a few powerful stations.

I hope this helps.

My Klh r3000 receiver is great for everything except picking up am or fm stations? I had an antenna attached, but the unit is in my basement, and I get no signals at all. What could I be doing wrong?


If the antenna is in a basement that is the problem - the fact that it is below ground means that no signals can get through.
Radio signals are blocked by buildings, large lumps of metal or other solid objects as well as strong magnetic fields (which can include electrical devices within the home).
To pick up good radio reception you will need an external antenna above the ground level - preferably as high as you can get it. Unless you get an omni-directional antenna like this one http://www.maplin.co.uk/vhf-fm-omnidirectional-aerial-874 you will need to point the antenna accurately at the transmitting station (+ or - about 5 degrees) for FM. At a pinch you might get by with an indoor aerial but it needs to be above ground level (inside a roof would be best)
Good external AM Radio aerials are harder to find these days.

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.

Something has changed in your system. Check all of your connections and grounds. Thats where I would start.

Power cuts in and out when transmitting or receiving


Here are some things that could be wrong and some solutions.

Check the fuse.

The power jack could be bad.

Where is it hooked to power? It could either have a bad ground, or in sufficient power from that source. Try connecting it direct to the battery.

I have a CXSGT08HP sony car stereo. It was installed by a friend at home. The memory does not work. Can you tell me which wire is the memory wire and were i need to hook it up to?

I’m attaching a wiring diagram which hopefully isreadable. I’ll also list the “where to”instructions for all of the other wires. It’simportant that several wiring steps be done in a particular order.

About the Memory Wire:

The memory wire is Yellow and should be connected to the +12 V power terminal (which isenergized at all times). First besure to connect the black ground (earth) lead to a metal surface of the car.

Important…
>>Before making connections, turn the stereo unit and carignition off to avoid short circuits.
>>Connect the yellow and red power input leads onlyafter all other leads have been connected.
>>The power antenna (aerial) control lead (blue)supplies +12 V DC when you turn on the tuner.


Hope this helps. Lemme know if you have more questions or would like me to email you acopy of the owner’s manual.

Thanks, and take care.

Gail :-)

Mic hum


Yes, the wiring is different. Reverse the wires on pins 1 & 2, then reverse the wires on pins 3 & 4.

The wiring for you radio's mike is:

1- Audio
2-Ground (Shield)
3-Receive
4-Transmit

Depending on the vintage of your mike, the colors Uniden uses for these functions are white or yellow for audio, red is transmit & black is receive.
