Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
goodluck!

### Add channels to a to make it 40 channels or a web page thanks happy happy knew year and healty

I\'m assuming you\'re talking about converting an old 23-channel CB to a 40-channel radio.

You didn\'t specify what kind of CB you have so it\'s impossible to say for sure, but it\'s highly unlikely that this can be done cost effectively.

Most 23-channel radios used a set of 14 (6 base + 4 transmit + 4 receive) crystals whose frequencies were added together to result in the specific CB channel you were wishing to use.

Adding additional channels would require multiple sets of crystals and a replacement of the front-panel switch assembly that selected them.

This is a lot of work and expense, and you would be left with a radio that would either be missing channels - due to the peculiarities of CB channel assignments - or would include frequencies that you\'re not allowed to use. In either case such a heavily-modified radio would likely be illegal to operate.

Most - if not all - 40 channel radios use a newer digital synthesis technique to generate the frequencies needed, so their circuitry is much simpler and less expensive to manufacture. If you\'re wanting 40 channels, it\'s time to put the old 23-er out to pasture and buy a new one. Amazon has basic models starting at under \$40.

### What is the dead key adjustment # on a midland 5001z cb ?

amps like the smaller wattage so they can push out more power but some amps like the 3 watt figure so they can push out more power. go to www.cbtricks.com and look up your radio. the schematic is there but I don't remember if there is a service manual for it.

### I have spotty reception on a handheld CB and was wondering if there is a testing procedure I can use to check the antenna and radio. I have a multimeter. It's a radio shack handheld with weather bands...

The antenna is your problem not much gain. Height is everything tx and rx. Although it would not compare to a conventional cb size negates performance. Seeing is believing in this case hearing get adapter to connect to standard coax of antenna. (PL259) to BNC Coax Adapter Radio Shack sells them. And dont ask or buy any radios there. They are hardly the radioshack of choice anymore.

• If you put 4 watts into a four-foot antenna, you will get the same power out of that antenna as if you were putting 2 watts into a 102-inch whip.
• If you put 4 watts into a 3-foot antenna you will get the same power out as if you were putting about 1.5 watts into a 102-inch whip.
• If you put 4 watts into a 7.5 inch antenna on a hand held CB, it would put out as much power as a third of a watt into a 102-whip.
• If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna, it is the same output as if you put 11 watts into a 3-foot whip.
• If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna,, it is the same as if you put 14 watts into a 28-inch antenna.
• If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna, it is the same as if you put 54 watts into a 7.5 antenna.
