Question about Midland 1001Z 40-Channels Base CB Radio
Several things can cause poor reception. I have a few questions for you.
1. Have you tried measuring your SWR (standing wave ratio)? This helps give you an idea how well your transmission line and antenna are working.
2. Is this radio being used as a base or mobile? Do you have proper grounding on the antenna?
3. Pressing the mic button and seeing the radio indicate "transmit" does not always mean you are transmitting at full rated power. Have you tried transmitting through a wattmetter into a dummy load?
4. If the transmission line is good and the antenna is good, then I would suspect that something may be wrond with the receiver's front-end (sensitivity).
Receiver sensitivity can be checked by using a RF signal generator. Unfortunately you'll have to take the unit to a repair shop to have that checked. Try the other things I mentioned above. Let me know what you find and we'll go from there.
