Schematics and alignment procedures are widely available for this radio on the internet. a little research goes a long way.

p.s. if you don't know what you are doing leave it for a skilled tech. you could cause some major issues if you "allign" the wrong thing.

No transmit signal


Does the unit work when it is not hooked up to the linear? The obvious choice is that you have blown finals in the RF output section of the radio.

I have a 29 ltd classic I calibrated it, I can receive but cant transmit. when I key up the Mic. it swings all the way to the right. My ground and ant. are both good any help is appreciated.


i`m not certain how you calibrated your unit but being that i have extensive knowledge regarding radios my guess is that you do not have the necessary test gear to execute this procedure, also there is for the most part no reason to re-calibrate the RF circuit once they have been calibrated from the factory unless service has bin performed to the RF circuits ,possibly you might have tried to unlock additional channels capable bye your type unit and modified it incorrectly and your receiver frequency is not the same as the transmitted frequency, restore any modifications that you executed but and if you adjusted any coils pots,trimmers you must have some way to measure your adjustments
a calibrated signal source, a calibrated signal analyzer and RF measuring device such as a
RF what meter and field strength meter maby a oscilloscope depending what was done to the unit is necessary to perform calibrations

If you have thees or most of thees items let me know the model of your device and i will try to help you further

good luck from unit 99, power master base, Vancouver B.C 19 70s to 1978. VE7-ICV now.. Falco

Galaxy 44 converted to cb. the question is when i get near the power/signal meter it will move is this normal.


This is not normal. Either you are magnetic, or you have some kind of RF reflecting off you. Or something like that. This is strange to me.

Hi,

If by calibration, you are referring to the check if your antenna is tuned, below information may be of help.
S/RF/SWR/CAL SWITCH. When in the S/RF position, the meter swings
proportionally to the strength of the received signal. When transmitting,
the meter indicates relative RF output power.
When in the "CAL" position, the SWR meter can be calibrated by adjusting
the "SWR CAL" control to the "CAL" mark on the meter face.
When in the "SWR" position, the standing wave ratio is measured.

SWR METER. Measures standing wave ratio of the antenna system.
Used to properly adjust the length of the antenna and to monitor the
quality of the coaxial cable and all RF electrical connections. If there is any
degradation whatsoever in any of the foregoing, due to humidity, salt
spray, vibration or corrosion, the SWR meter reading will rise, thereby
indicating that a problem exists.
To calibrate, switch to the "CAL" position, transmit by pressing the mike
switch, and adjust the SWR control to the "CAL" mark on the meter; then
switch to "SWR" position for the SWR measurement.

If however you are referring to the internal calibration or tuning of the transmit and receive sections, you would need several instruments/equipment such as RF generator (0-30Mhz with 1Khx modulation), Spectrum Analyzer, Modulation Scope, Dummy Loaded Wattmeter, Frequency Meter and some others. These of course are not readily available to the average user.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
