It doesn't appear to cover the ham bands, only maritime. This radio is also not type approved for operation on ham bands either.

You can find the freq. range in the manual at the link below:

How come my icom 756 pro did not transmitting on 8000 frequency


You have to modify this radio to operate outside of the HAM bands. You will likely find the modification at www.mods.dk. This is a pretty common and easy modification for HAM radios. Your performance may not be as good as in the HAM bands.

You do this MOD at your own risk. If you are not licensed for operation on ANY frequency or band, you are not legally allowed to transmit. Heavy fines may be levied against you.

I cant talk on any frequency over 148.000 anyone know why?!


This is an Amateur (Ham) Radio 2-meter Transceiver. It will only transmit on the 2-meter Amateur band (144-148 MHz) but has expanded receiver coverage from 136-174 MHz which includes Public Service and Commercial 2-Way Radio bands. Please note that an Amateur License is required to operate on the 2-meter Amateur Band.

How to hack into a motorola mr350r radio and change the frequencies


Hi, Jeremy,

Not Advisable, apart from being illegal, you can cause irripairable damage to your radio.

These radios were designed to operate on specific frequencies only.

My advice....Don't Do It!!!

Hope that answers your query.

Fix my connex 3400 hb sideband button


Hi there, if you are talking about the Connex CX 3400 HP there is no sideband or SSB on this radio. It is only AM and FM 10 meter Ham radio. Many people do modify these radios to include the 11 meter frequencies which is the CB band. Maybe knowing the actual bands and their frequencies will help some too this radio does have 6 different bands ranging from (Band A. 28.015 thru 28.455) (Band B. 28.145 thru 28.585) (Band C. 28.115 thru 28.555) (Band D. 28.085 thru 28.525) (Band E. 28.055 thru 28.495) (Band F. 28.025 thru 28.465.) I hope this will help you. Bob

Will not receive and transmit on 15mtrs and 17mtrs


Hi Seamus,

Is this only on those bands, not an issue with other bands?

If so, then your radio may not be fitted with the correct frequencies to transmit on those bands, they are after all allocated in part to the Amateur operators, which requires licensing to operate.

The fact you can't Tx/Rx, indicates this to be the issue.

I can't help you if you are not a licensed HAM Operator, sorry...

Enjoy the other bands available for your radio.

Cheers,
Peter

Ihave a gargeled recive sound


Check the position of the mode selector switch. You may be receiving a SSB (single side band) transmission that is not on the exact same frequency as you or, your radio is in AM or FM mode. You will need to select either USB or LSB (upper or lower side band) and vary the clarifier knob until the sound becomes intelligible. If the sound does not become clear, try the other side band and repeat varying the clarifier knob.

Conversely, if you are in USB or LSB mode and there is a transmission on AM or FM, it will have the same garbled sound. Try changing the mode to AM and the FM. If it does not become clear, it is likely a SSB transmission and you are not on the exact same frequency of the transmission you are hearing. Vary the clarifier knob until it becomes clear - or change to the other side band if needed and try the clairfier again.

The short story is that you must be in the same mode and on the same exact frequency. When in AM or FM, this is less of a problem as these are much more wide banded signals than SSB signals.

The 2990 is really a 50 watt 10 meter amateur radio - but is geared to CBer's as it is easily modified to work in the CB frequency range and the so called "free band" between USA's CB (11 meters) and worldwide amateur 10 meter bands. Be careful transmitting this radio on CB frequencies as it violates FCC rules for power output there - and transmitting in the 28MHz - 29.7MHz requires a valid amateur radio license. Fifty watts on ham frequencies is tiny compared to the 1500 watts permitted. Why not get your ham license (here's how) and leave the "Chicken Band" (and all it entails) behind. You won't miss it!

I hope this helps and good luck!

LOST MY MANUAL TO MY UNIDEN BEARCAT BC142XL CAN I GET A FREE REPLACEMENT


The manual isn't online to my knowledge however I did find a guide on how to program it.
"Turn it on. Push the "MANUAL" button to stop it from scanning.

Push number 1, then push "MANUAL" again. This should leave you on
channel one.

Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push
"E." Press "REVIEW" at anytime to see what frequency is programmed
there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the LED readout
display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the list
of acceptable frequencies in the Frequency Range Bands below.

Push "MANUAL" to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push
"E." Push "MANUAL" to step to channel three. Repeat this process until
all the (10) channels are full, or you've run out of frequencies to
enter.

Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The
radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two
seconds after the conversation has stopped.

Frequency Range Bands:

20 to 29.7 MHz (10 Meter "Ham" Band)
29.7 to 50 MHz (VHF Low Band)
50 to 54 MHz (6 Meter Amateur Band)
136 to 144 MHz (Military Land Mobile)
144 to 148 MHz (2 Meter "Ham" Band)
406 to 420 MHz (Federal Government Land Mobile)
420 to 450 MHz (70cm "Ham" Band)
450 to 470 MHz (UHF Standard Band)
470 to 512 MHz (UHF "T" Band)"

How can I tx on 81.575mhz. I have a bespoke external antenna for this frequency


What brand and model radio? Most ham radios cannot transmit on this frequency, as it is far outside the amateur bands. Even modified radios would rarely be capable of transmitting on the frequency referenced.

Wally,

No it does not have an internal antenna tuner. I presently own one and purchased it used. It covers all the marine bands. For more info on marine bands, do a search on the internet.
