Initially the only easy user action possible is to check/clean the battery contacts/terminals.

If still a no go, you need to check for any loose or open wiring from the battery compartment to the PCB. That would mean opening the unit and having a look & see inside. You need to be familiar with electronic components and circuitry, DVM and possibly a soldering iron. You need to look/check the power switch, voltage regulator, reverse protection diode, zener diode, fuse/fusiblelink-resistor, open foil/trace and any other components associated with the power supply/regulation.

If this does not solve the problem, your best bet would then be to seek the assistance of a qualified communications technician.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Ge cb radio

Possibly a bad volume/on/off volume potentiometer. Try using canned air around the volume/on/off knob to remove any debris down along the shaft. If this does not help, your unit may need repair. Do not use any chemicals, cleaners or solvents on the shaft, only use air.

Clean your internal battery contacts on the batteries and the radio with a pencil eraser to assure good connection. If you are using rechargeable batteries, try charging the batteries again.

If this does not help, your unit may need repair.

Best regards.

W do I turn off squelch control on a digitech DC-1065 marine radio hand held 5 Watt

Hi David,

Before I try to give advice, I need more info.

I possess a Digitech DC1065 UHF 80 Channel CB hand held, so there seems to be some confusion here.

I live near Perth, Western Australia.

Firstly, How many channels does your radio have?

If the answer is 80, then what you have is a UHF CB, not a marine band radio.

Marine band is VHF with 87 Channels, in Australia that is, and the default channel is always 16.

Digitech are an Australian radio manufacturer, so you'll get great backup service.

If your radio is not defaulting to Ch16, then I am right about it being a UHF CB.

Therefore, it is useless for VHF anything, let alone Marine band.

I'm almost 100% sure this is a UHF CB in your possession.

Try this to prove me right please.

Reply to me with your Country and nearest city, I'll then be able to find a solution for you real quick, though I believe I already have.

Looking forward to your response.

How to remove the letters RX near the battery so u can talk to another person It's a Uniden hand held receiver model-uh043sx-2

Hi Phillip,

The Rx symbol indicates that someone else is using the channel, which, (if your radio is working correctly) means you should be hearing them, if this is the case then there is nothing you can do to change that, because only one person at a time can use the channel at a time, however, as we\'re talking about CB radios, that is not always the case, dependant on the make and model of the radio in use.

In the case of your radio, not much can be done, as that is a factory default setting, so you can\'t override this without getting into the unit and risk stuffing it up period.

If you know someone in the 2-way radio game i.e,. a radio technician, or radio amateur, they could help, otherwise you can\'t do much about this.

If this is a real problem for you, then getting a bigger 5 watt radio could be an answer, as these are normally set by default to allow you to override the Rx when you Tx.

Note: Don\'t buy a Chinese made unit, as these are not reliable, nor stable units for Aussie use, I found this out when I purchased an Oricom CB... Absolute crap, cheap and nasty. Be aware of where radios are made, regardless of brand name.

I hope I have been of assistance.

I jus was wondering, can the cb radio and the handheld radio transmit on the same channel? Im a security officer and im interested in purchase a cb radio so we can use it at work but i dont know if its...

CB radios and hand-held CB radios can operate on the same channel and be in contact with each other. Other hand-held radios do not operate on the same frequencies and even though they may have channel numbers the channels have different frequencies and will not operate to CB radios.
