Receivers complain about squeeling noise from my midland 1001z when I transmit. Is this an RF Gain setting problem?

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.

Would like to know the proceedure for mod limiter clip and mod peak, seems to have plenty of receive with the RF Gain.


that is one of midlands big secrets. they want to do the work on their product so they will only release certain manuals for certain radios. unfortunately the 1000 z isn't one of them. Hey I mean I have a 9001z and midland told me they don't have service manuals for it.

I can't transmit, but I can receive signals


Hi,my name is John. Start with checking your Squelch and RF GAIN wide open. Check that your antenna is grounded good and no metal objects are blocking it. Turn the MIC GAIN to MAX. Key the Mic, the needle should move or a light should come on. Try another MIC. if it doesnt. Let me know how it does, could be something internal that I can help you with.....hope this was very helpful...

I have a midland 1001z cb radio with a magnetic mount attenna by cobra. When I transmit receivers are getting a lot of squealing. Before I bought the midland i had a radio shack cb which worked find.


is this same antenna as before. you should always check the SWR's to see if set correctly.. other than that. bad grounds, bad microphone can make any radio squeal..

"squeak" when transmitting


Make sure you have a good ground for the radio and antenna. How long is the antenna coax if a little to long and you have extra what did you do with it coil it if so uncoil it and lay it out try it. If no luck I would shorten the coax and recheck your SWR.
