You have a bad detector in the radio. Needs serviced. Change the bad detector diode and it should work. Good Luck

How can I get my midland 9001z from AM to FM

Hi Trevor,

The Midland radio you have is NOT capable of FM transmit & receive. It is a Citizen's Band radio that operates on channels 1 thru 40 that are assigned to the 26.965-27.405 MHz frequency range. These are the standard 40 Ch CB frequencies in the U.S. (and may not be legal for use in other parts of the world without a license from your country's communications authorities). It also offers Weather Band reception - again these are US frequencies that may or may not even be used at all in the UK. Since the radio only displays a channel number, you don't actually know the frequency you're monitoring or transmitting on. Your friends on CH 5 may be in a completely different band.

Even if they are on the same frequency, the fact that they are operating in FM mode means that you would hear something - but it may not be intelligible - and the same would be for them listening to you transmit in AM mode. If you could have them switch their radio to AM, all would be fine. I suspect they use FM as there is much less static when compared to AM.

If they won't change to FM, you'll either have to stop trying to talk to them or buy a radio capable of FM (and make sure it has the same frequencies as theirs!).

Good luck!

Midland 75 785 purchase from us will it work on uk channels

  • For 11 meter (CB) the standard 40 channels will be the exactly same as the "EU" set of frequencies (channels). However the "UK" 11 meter (40 channels) and the U.S.A. 40 11 meter (40channels CB) will not work together at all. This includes any actual Citizen Band radio, excluding Export 10 an 12 meter radios often labeled as "CB'S" which they are not.

  • Hope this helps.

Midland 75-822 no transmission in FM? why?

there is no transmission on FM because CB is at 26 to 27Mhz on the AM Band and as with your car radio FM starts around 88Mhz. the other reason is tha one one modulates amplatude(AM) slightly to cary the signal, FM modulates the frequincy slightly to carry the transmission.

if you want to talk on FM you might want to become a Amateur "Ham" Radio Operator.

How do I get back to regular CB channels on the 75-822? All I can get is 27.xx and 26.xx. Where are the 1-40 channels.

I'm guessing that you bought the CB from a person not a company the CB band is between 26Mhz and 27Mhz unfortunately your CB was Modded to talk on Ham radio frequency's what i would suggest is one of two things if you are good at electrical soldering get a schematic and take out the mod or look on-line for a ham radio store like ham radio outlet near you and see if they can un modd it.

if you bought it from a store return it or talk to midland to see if they can fix/reset it at

one other thing until the radio is fixed it is not FCC part 95 or 97 compliant and is therefor illegal to transmit with it

Will the midland 4001 still work in the uk?

While it will "work" if used to talk with another US CB model, it is not legal. Also, UK CBs use FM modulation while the US versions use AM. Even if they are on the same frequency, they cannot communicate with each other.

For a good discussion of this, look at the following link:

Please explain a 10 meter am/fm radio


You do set this up like a regular CB. The meters refers to how long the waves are. CB is 11 meters. So its very close. The antenna woud be tuneds slightly shorter. Use the SWR meter in the radio to calibrate just like you would a normal cb.

Now for the ABCDEF knob. each letter is 40 channels in the band. So A would be 1 - 40 channels, then B would be the next 1 - 40 channel frequencies. You use the frequency counter in the radio(providing that model has one) to tell what channel you are on.

Here is some info one the frequencies in the band.

Now for AM and FM. this is the type of modulation you are using for transmit and receive.

CB transmits on AM or SSB. Amplitude modulation or Single side band. Most CB radios only have AM. But some also have SSB. None will have FM.

FM is frequency modulation.

10 meter radios can have AM FM SSB and DSB depending on the model and options it comes with.

So your radio has 6 ranges for freqency. each is 40 or 50 channesl. Not sure what model you have. If it has 40 then you have 240 channel freqencies.

with AM and FM, you double that, because you can talk on AM or FM on all the channels. If you are on AM and some one transmits on FM unless they are really close, you will not hear them at all, but if you do with will just be garbbled noise.

Also Am and FM both work a little different with range etc.

Now, you may be able to talk on the CB channels as well. Cb starts at 26.965 MHz and ends at 27.405 MHz. The channels are all .010 MHz appart.

Hope this helps

Audio playback through speakers

This happens because of the close proximity of the CB transmitting antenna to the car stereo antenna. I don't know for sure what country you live in, but if your country's CB system uses AM as a transmission mode it is well known for breakthrough on audio systems etc. In the UK, we have FM on CB frequencies which is less-prone to giving interference.
You could try ferrite rings/clamps on the car stereo antenna coax cable, power cable and also on your loudspeaker cables too. Apart from that - that is all you can do using it mobile!
