Question about Radio Communications
Make sure the RF gain is on max.
If the meter is moving when receiving, but you don't hear it, it could be the mic. Try a different mic and see if it works. It could also be a broken wire to the mic jack.
If the meter doesn't swing when some one is transmitting to you and you don't hear them, there could be either something wrong in the receive section of the radio, a bad resistor in conjunction with the RF gain control, or it could just be a bad knob.
You can hot wire it to full to check it like this:
Look for the wires on the RF gain knob. Its 2 wires. Disconnect them form the knob and twist or solder them together. If you have receive after that its a bad knob.
You can replace it, or just solder the wires permenantly together and put some shrink tube on it and use it like that. You don't need RF gain any way.
Most of the time its on full any way. no need to turn it down.
