Question about Midland 1001Z 40-Channels Base CB Radio
I had the same (squealing) problem on transmit with the Midland 1001Z
when I used it indoors as a base unit. The problem was my power
supply: it broke into oscillation when drawing more than 150 mA at
13.8V. The 1001Z draws about 150 mA on Receive, and much more (but
only about 900 mA) on Transmit. If using the 1001Z as a base unit, I
suggest you power it with a fully-charged car battery indoors, or test
your power supply to check if it can't supply the required 1 Amp,
approx., on Transmit. It's a GREAT radio, just give it a good power
supply. My power supply was defective out of the box, but now I have a
good one and get great reports on signal strength and audio quality.
Remarkable, for the low price and 3 year warranty. Good luck!

No, the RF gain control is a receive function on your end. It likely a problem with your mic.
