The first answer is the best answer. If your not sure what you are doing, don't do it. It could be a very expensive excercise for you!

Man, honestly if you don't know this stuff then you probably shouldnt have this radio yet because you're liable to screw it up. The power these put out, if your antenna is off match you will destroy this radio. Get to a good cb shop and have them check your setup out. And keep your RF power control around 11 o clock to get the most audio out of your radio, if you keep the rf power all the way up, you will have too high a dead key and you will have horrible modulation.

B, has this connex been "converted" yet? The FM mode is used quite a bit over in Europe, not so much in the US. We use the AM side and SSB here. If it's been converted, then the correct band for the regular 40 ch. would be D band. If you bought this radio "stock" in the box, then no you won't receive the CB channels. Hope this helps you,, let us know,, Mechanic

How can I get my midland 9001z from AM to FM


Hi Trevor,

The Midland radio you have is NOT capable of FM transmit & receive. It is a Citizen's Band radio that operates on channels 1 thru 40 that are assigned to the 26.965-27.405 MHz frequency range. These are the standard 40 Ch CB frequencies in the U.S. (and may not be legal for use in other parts of the world without a license from your country's communications authorities). It also offers Weather Band reception - again these are US frequencies that may or may not even be used at all in the UK. Since the radio only displays a channel number, you don't actually know the frequency you're monitoring or transmitting on. Your friends on CH 5 may be in a completely different band.

Even if they are on the same frequency, the fact that they are operating in FM mode means that you would hear something - but it may not be intelligible - and the same would be for them listening to you transmit in AM mode. If you could have them switch their radio to AM, all would be fine. I suspect they use FM as there is much less static when compared to AM.

If they won't change to FM, you'll either have to stop trying to talk to them or buy a radio capable of FM (and make sure it has the same frequencies as theirs!).

Good luck!

After you convert the connex 3400hp from ham to amature, what do you do to tune it in where you can reciever and talk? and also how do you tell what channels are regular,uppers,and lowers?


you will need a frequency counter, to show the channels. 1-40 and the others are allocated as frequencies. there are lists available showing ch1 band A is ??? so forth. there shouldn't be uppers or lower on it its just a AM/FM only radio NO SSB.

and these ARE NOT AMATEUR / HAM radios!!!!!!! these are EXPORTS...

In Thailand Cb radio users must use freq range 245.000 - 249.999 freqs. Do usa Cb's use this freq?


Thailand actually has three "CB" bands, the first is the same as the U.S. / CEPT (EU "European Community) band 26.965 - 27.405 MHz, the second is a 78MHz VHF mid CB band (I think its either 40 or 80 channels with FM mode) and then the 245.0000 - 245.9875 MHz VHF 80 channel band - apparently the law also stipulates that the 78MHz CBs must be yellow colored and the 245MHz CBs must be red colored.

But yeah, 245MHz Thailand VHF CBs are very illegal in the United States.

Please explain a 10 meter am/fm radio


Okay.

You do set this up like a regular CB. The meters refers to how long the waves are. CB is 11 meters. So its very close. The antenna woud be tuneds slightly shorter. Use the SWR meter in the radio to calibrate just like you would a normal cb.

Now for the ABCDEF knob. each letter is 40 channels in the band. So A would be 1 - 40 channels, then B would be the next 1 - 40 channel frequencies. You use the frequency counter in the radio(providing that model has one) to tell what channel you are on.

Here is some info one the frequencies in the band.

Now for AM and FM. this is the type of modulation you are using for transmit and receive.

CB transmits on AM or SSB. Amplitude modulation or Single side band. Most CB radios only have AM. But some also have SSB. None will have FM.

FM is frequency modulation.

10 meter radios can have AM FM SSB and DSB depending on the model and options it comes with.

So your radio has 6 ranges for freqency. each is 40 or 50 channesl. Not sure what model you have. If it has 40 then you have 240 channel freqencies.

with AM and FM, you double that, because you can talk on AM or FM on all the channels. If you are on AM and some one transmits on FM unless they are really close, you will not hear them at all, but if you do with will just be garbbled noise.

Also Am and FM both work a little different with range etc.

Now, you may be able to talk on the CB channels as well. Cb starts at 26.965 MHz and ends at 27.405 MHz. The channels are all .010 MHz appart.

Hope this helps

It is lkikely that you burn the output transistors. You can easily check these transistors even if it is soldered but be aware of low resistance paths like coil , toroid, and lo ohm resistor which might affect the reading in the multitester. To be sure desolder at least 2 pins before testing. I do not think that the driver is damaged.
