Question about Midland 1001Z 40-Channels Base CB Radio

1 Answer

Transmitting problem Hello, I too have a 13-895 that I purchased off of Ebay. My dad had one of these and I always loved it. The one that I purchased seems to work fine EXCEPT when I try to transmit. I get no DX signal at all. I even tried a new power mike to no avail. It's like I'm not even keying the mic at all. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    The 13-895 has a light on the RF meter that changes to Red when transmitting. The light does not change nor does the receiver cut out the incoming audio when I key the mic.

    either blown power RF circuit or poorly-matched SWR (standing wave ratio should be 1.0) to antenna. look on antenna tip for adjusting screw...turn it in or out until change observed.

My palomar 225amp online it arrived w/ a 250 black faceplate.Amp lks new & pills and board look new. Running a galaxy959 it wrks grt. SWR 1.1 on wilson1000. Lights work, preamp wrks. No transmit?

there is your problem . You bought it on ebay ,paid twice as much as it is actually worth and you got screwed . Now you have to get it fixed because you bought a broken piece of equipment. If you have another radio hook it up to the amp and see if it works . Maybe the amp don't like your radio? If it doesn't work then we know its the amp so now treat it like another radio and look inside to see if anything is out of place or maybe burnt , from ebay . You might need a multi meter to do this . check all your voltages and make sure the amp has continuity going from pl to pl set your meter to ohms and insert the probes into the hole on each pl . that will tell you if there is contact . Now you should get a schematic to check out all the voltages of the components inside . It just might be that the amp is drawing to much or not enough amps to run it . I am confident you will find the problem and get it fixed .

How to turn beep off when transmitting

all the beep is for is so people can tell when you are done transmitting. There should be a push knob or button or just a plain old knob that has R.B. printed next to it . Turn it off.

Rf meter not moving when keying up

if the radio is transmitting fine, then the meter is shot. It happens. You can get them cheap on ebay. Its 2 wires and 2 screws. You need to un solder the old one and solder in the new one.

Always use an external meter to set SWR. If the ant. warning light comes on it indicates a problem with the SWR. Check it with external meter.

Just want to know where to set all the bottoms on this Galaxy DX44 V to be ableto talk to people on channel 19

With out a frequency counter to tell you what freq you are transmitting on there is another way.

Turn to channel 19. mess with the switches untill you hear truckers on the highway. then you have got it.

Otherwise pick up a frequency counter on ebay.

Transmitting problem on motorcycle

  • Make sure you run the CB directly to the battery. What you are hearing is the alternator whining. Even then sometimes a low pass filter may be necessary. Make sure the chassis of your CB is grounded with a copper braid strap too.

  • Hope this helps.

Cant hear

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.

Good luck,

- Jim
