Re: Fm radio/speakers

Check that there are speakers! stupid as it sounds, sometimes there are just covers with holes behind...

If there are speakers trace the wiring through to the source make sure it has been conected both ends...

Or check the balance & fader on the set.

I have a sony wx gt90bt car stereo and I can only get the local station on am, the fm works just find.

I am not sure what type of car you have, but if it is reasonably modern, you will have what is called and "Active Antenna". This needs power and is usually powered from the car radio. I am sure that when the new radio was installed, this connection was missed. FM will work fine around town, but get a few miles outside, and you won't have anything. AM will be very noise or non-existant, as you have found out.

I had the same broublem with a used car that I had purchased. Once I connected the power to the antenna up, I had AM stations coming in from 200 miles away, and FM for 75 miles or so.

You think you might have a reception problem? Check your antenna, you are using one, right?

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!

Will a cobra power mic cure the low mod on my cobra 19 dx iv eu or will it blow the front of the rig

that is simply bs, Ham radio shops rarely like CB people (I am a long time cber and also a ham.

On that radio there are two things you can do, look for the mod limiter and remove it or another more simple thing:
This radio comes with a 1000 ohm element in the mic--like speakers---Get a older or new 500 ohm microphone and wire it or have it wired for the 19 dx, it will make a big difference in how it sounds.

I not only worked on those radios but sold them in a shop I owned.

You might find a used mic that's 500 ohm, it is usually stamped into the back case of a mic.

The volume wont go higher than 12 on my Jensen Mcd5110 Marine Radio/am/fm/Cd receiver W/Detachable face, how can I fix it to go all the way up to 26 plus?

take off the bottom cover ,find the volume switch on the outside then find it on the inside.Now get some WD-40 and spray the control on the inside with a very,very light squirt of WD - 40. Let it set for a while then try it.It should work.

The FM has no forward modulation. You're radio will key up but you can't transmit on it. All cb radio are like that after conversion.

Cb radio

You may be generating a harmonic from the cb that is picked up by the radio. Check if different channels and if AM/FM act the same. Also if a cd unit, does playing a cd produce the same effect. If all stations and the cd player do the same thing, interference is most likely coming in on the radio power or ground leads. You can get an inline noise filter from radio shack:
or you can make your own if you have an old computer power supply by using the toroids if you can get to the power supply lead. Make sure the radio housing is electrically connected to ground. The interference may also be coming in on the radio antenna. Try moving the cb antenna away from it if possible, or test by rotating the cb antenna to a horizontal position temporarily.
