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

My uniden solara dsc has poor reception, how can i find the service manual. am a radio technician.


Hi!

We have a Uniden Oceanus DSC, which we bought as an upgrade for our MC-620. It has been my experience (20 years as a broadcast engineer) that reception issues are almost ALWAYS caused by the antenna. Antenna location is the easiest to fix, VHF being line-of-sight, HIGHER is better. We have our antenna on top of the mast (40' above the surface of the water). It has been my experience as well that Uniden products are very nearly bulletproof and RARELY need servicing. I'd concentrate mainly on checking your antenna installation.

Uniden will sell you a service manual, but they are indeed SPENDY. (Over $100US) Which is JUST about what your radio costs new.

Sorry I couldn't have been the bearer of better news.

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.

It sounds like your speaker has failed. I would recommend replacing the speaker. You can take the radio to a marine electronics repair shop for the repair and it should be about $75 - $100. If you have any other problems please email me: kevin@sun-me.net. You can always send it to me and we can repair it at my shop.

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.

I had a uniden oceanus installed and when I click the talk button it changes the channel on my stereo. Help!


Try moving your antennas further apart. If they are already a couple feet apart, mount the Uniden in another location away from the stereo if possible. You might check with a radio shop about a filter. Your Uniden operates in the 150MHz range and the stereo receives in the 88-107MHz range. Good Luck.

Uniden MC 610 Marine Radio


While your MC610 was a great radio for it's time. the Oceanus is an excellent choice to replace your MC610. Unforunately you would be looking at about a $100.00 repair bill to repair your MC610. for just a little more you get a new radio and the new radio will have a warranty.
