What is the video single output VHF FM UHF 12db

That sounds like the description of a broadband amplifier. It likely has "F" type (cable-coax) connectors and a power cord.
Commonly used to increase the signal level of TV cable to compensate for inserting a signal splitter, or in some cases to increase the signal level from an antenna, typically outdoor TV or FM radio antenna, so it is connected between the signal source (antenna, or cable) and receiver with antenna as input and receiver connected to the output of this little box. The gain (amplification) it provides is 12 dB, so the output is more than 3 times the input.

Carlos, I have a similar problem, & find out, if I move the coax, the reception comes in better. I would check out the coax itself &/or the connector.

We have two motorola CDM1250 two-way radio installed in the same room .Seem to be getting feedback in one unit when the other unit mic is pressed. it does not happen when the other unit mic is pressed....

You might check your antenna locations, connections, coax and cables. Feedback is sometimes cause by two or more transmitters being too close together (or bad coax/connectors). In the case of mobile radios, this would depend on the location of the external antennas. One radio may be more sensitive than the other, or a PL (private line) code is blocking the interference on the radio which appears to not have a problem. Feedback is caused by RF (radio frequency waves) in the environment. We suggest looking for the leak, and/or repositioning the antennas to be futher apart.

Best regards.

I want to use an external antenna. Is the antenna

There is a kit available which contains the antenna, mag mount, coax, and connector. OR if you already have your antenna, mag mount and coax, the connector alone is available. You should be able to get these from your local Motorola dealer.

best regards.

Antennas Uniden Bearcat BC148XLT

Height and placement of the antenna determines range. Also, check to see you have the antenna perpendicular to the ground (straight up), and place the antenna where it has 19" clear around it. (not up against a wall or other obstruction)

Placing the existing antenna higher, or replacing it with an external antenna would give you more range. A simple test before purchasing a new connector, coax and antenna for the scanner, would be to place the scanner where you think you would place an antenna and see if it gives you the range you desire.

External antennas are available from most any radio shop. (They would need to know what type of connector you need to connect the coax to the back of the unit.)

How to install echo board in uniden pc66 cb radio


You have to cut the microphone line and put the echo board in between. The INput of the echo board should go to the end that goes to the microphone connector, the OUTput would go to the wire that leads to the CB board.Connect also the B+ and ground. The B+ should go to the switched B+ of the radio while the negative can go to any grounded area.

Good luck and kind regards.
