You have to adjust the high key first so make sure you're rf power is on high, hope you have a meter set it on the 20 watt scale, key up and turn vr 13
located in back of radio infront of where you're coax connector is until it keys around 12 watts, thats where most connex 33hp should be set,now go to low power and key adjust vr 16 right net to the otherone down to about 3 watts, now you can drive a liners. Mod is Vr 2 right below them two. whistle in mic and turn to get the mod you want.

I recently bought a Connex CX366CE. I plan to install a SLMM-1 SUPER MOD AND SWING POWER MODULATION kit. I plan to hook it to a Viper 25,000 watt antenna. Is this going to work? Do I need an antenna tuner...


you should be fine, check your swr's before and after.a swing kit only throws the carrier and adds more modulation. the connex is a good radio to start with,you should be fine, with the mod kit and radio you will never reach 25k on that antenna with this setup. just make sure the antenna is tuned rite for optimum operation(low swr).

Have a new connex 3300hp i can hear everybody else but nobody can hear me when i key up and talk the needle dont even move


look up the tune specs VR13 (L PWR) L32 L33 high power maybe your watts are turned down if it is brand new send it back to the place you bought it from.If the watts are turned all the way down you won't get any carrier your needle is not moving when tranmitting there is no rf power check to see if your tx light is on when depressing the mic button. you should have a rf adjustment turn it clockwise to turn the power up on the front of your radio.or the mods i gave you in the radio.

I bought a used connex 4300hp. i had it "so


IT could??? peak power, 14-15volts yeah.. the 4300 should put out 80w by itself.. as long as you have a low deadkey ie 1-5watts it should be fine. just don't put high wattage into an amp like that.. it will get hot QUICKLY.!!.. make sure your swr's are low low low.. 1.7:1 or lower... so your not getting reflected power... i would put a wattmeter with swrmeter like a mfj. or vectronic cross needle meter inline just to monitor it.... they go for $75 @ most places. Good investment... call email if need more help

Tunring up a cobra 150 gtl/dx


Um... What?? This is hooked to a switch? CB radio by FCC regulations is only supposed to have a max of 4 watts total output. If you can flip it to 7 watts dead key, you are doing really good. It won't do much more then that. It sounds like its set up to run on a linear amplifier, which cannot have more then 3 watts dead key transmitting into it.

Dead key, and modulation are different. You may have a meter that only reads dead key, and won't see the modulation. This radio is probably swinging close to 15-20 watts. you need a meter that can read PEP, Peak envelope power. Cheap meters only read AVG, or average power, witch will only show your dead key.

7 watts dead key is really good for that radio.especially since stock only has 4 watts. you cannot get any higher then that without changing finals.

at 3 watt dead key, or 7 watt dead key, your modulation wattage is still swinging much higher.

Also, you will get more swing with a lower dead key any way, which is better if you want it to be loud.

Leave it alone. its probably set just right.

Modulation with my linear


the radio you are trying to fry your amp with is driving the amp to hard. that radio has a toshiba 80 watt final inside the radio you are killing your radio with the dead key at 2 watts it causes the final to overheat and shut down because it is not built to be turned down that much. its best to turn the radio back up and use the radio.
