Question about Radio Communications

2 Answers

I have had this handheld CB radio for years and it stopped working. When i turn it on it beeps and the screen lights up but no sound.

When I push the transmit button to talk tx does not show and I am unable to communicate. Is it possible to reset to factory settings as we have played with that many buttons to try and get it to work?

Hi Corinne!
I concur with Brett's theory on this.
Batteries do have a finite lifespan.
IF you could tell me the make and model of your handheld, I'll give it a shot on where you can obtain new batteries for it.
(EDIT)
Armed with this new information, (assuming you're in Australia) I would suggest these batts as a replacement. They're 2000 mAh and REAL close to your OEM batteries of 1900 mAh. http://www.panasonic.com/au/consumer/solar-lighting-batteries/household-batteries/eneloop-rechargeable/bk-3mcce4ba.html

Hope this Helps and good luck!

No sound when turned on


The manual may be viewed here.

Have a look at the video below for a quick rundown of features and use.
If you're in the US, this is NOT a "CB" radio. It is a UHF radio operating between 476.425 Mhz and 477.400 Mhz that seems to be popular in Australia. Transmitting on this radio in the US and quite possibly a number of other countries, too) will result in violation of FCC rules & other laws; as the frequencies it works on are not available for the general public. You will likely be interfering with other users / agencies that have paid large sums of money for licenses to use these frequencies.

Check with your country's communications laws before attempting to transmit - even if in Australia - as there may be laws governing their use there, too.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I am to trasmitt and receive while ignition key is off but when i turn key on i still am able to transmitt but i receive a lot of stastic. I have replaced the antenna and co ax and redone the ground.


Hi, my name is John. That noise you hear is probably coming from switch,such as ,seat belt warning,door,light, key switch , exc. Try running your CB wire strait to the battery, and see if it stops. If not, Radio Shack sells a noise limiter that goes in line with your connection, don't know how much. Do you have your noise limiter or noise blanker switch on the radio?...hope this was very helpful....

Kenwood TK370N UHF FM HANDHELD RADIO


By keeping the PTT button pushed, if you get a rapid beep and the red led is blinking, sounds like a bad battery. Batt voltage is a nominal 7.5v. anything lower than 6.25v and the low battery beep starts. A rapid beep, and no red led blinking, an error in the transmit freq.
