Sounds like a problem with your coax cable. You may not have the ends on the cable properly or the cable may have a kink or short in it somewhere. That is a sign of a very high SWR and usually means a short somewhere. If it is a mobile antenna make sure the little plastic washer on the antenna mount is installed properly. It is meant to insulate the antenna center conductor from the metal it is mounted to. It goes on top of the bracket and has a little raised collar on one side which should sit in the hole on the bracket.

How do I wire a tuner plus 3 mic to a vintage realistic trc 458 cb radio ?


Hi Carl, I found 2 different hook-ups so I will list them both. You can check them out according to the wire colors you have in the mic cord. First one and this may be for a turner mobile mic. ;
Turner
1- Shield & Red
2- N/C
3- Blue
4- White
5- Black
Yellow NC

This one is out of the Turner book but they did not list your radio exactly. This is the most popular hook-up for Realistic's.
Code E;
1-S
2- N/C
3- Bk
4- Wh
5- Red
Hope this helps, Mike

How do i repair finals in cobra 29 lx


first of all are you sure its a bad antenna. I can key the mic with no antenna hooked up and nothing will happen the the finals but you may key it down with a brand new antenna and burn them also.Lokk and see how they are connected in the radio before you take it out and replace it the same way.You may want to replace your driver also.

When i turn on my connex 4800 dxl all that lights up is the power meter no chanel display or freq display no sound either


The voltage regulator on the right side of the radio (with the parts side up ) is located in between the 2 side screw holes is ether bad or the legs are broke loose . it is a A1869 transistor.can be replaced with a A473 Transistor . Basically it's the same as a Galaxy Radio ,Ranger makes the boards for (RCI ,Galaxy , Connex , North Star ,Super Star, General Lee .) Hope this Helps.

Cobra 18 wx st receives-wont transmit


Take the cover off, flip it over solder side up, check all solder joints for cracks, cold solder joints, check the safety diode where it comes in the radio, before I go further, can you pick up the weather channel?...Does the PA work?...need to check the pre-driver and finals,audio chip, hook up the power meter using a coax three foot jumper from the output from radio to the input of the watt meter, then the antenna, first check the SWR, on the scale on the meter to cal/swr mode,adjust it to spec, then while still keyed down turn the dial to SWR,if it is the safe range your ok,then turn the Dial to 10 or 20 watt scale and key the mic. Does it have any wattage? If not suspect the finals, they are located on the back rail, if it does have RF then its the audio chip, its located on the right side rail facing you,closest to you.remove it and replace it with same ....hope this helps....

With radio turned on

1. Switch the first switch (S/RF SWR CAL) to CAL setting
2. Key mic up &
3. Turn SWR CAL knob while still keying mic until the needle is on the red CAL arrow at the far end of the meter scale. Unkey mic.
4. Switch the first switch back to SWR setting.
5. Key mic up again and record SWR reading and adjust as needed.
6. When done adjusting put switch back in the S/RF setting for normal operation.

Do not flip the switch with the mic keyed up.

The ant light and the other light light up red when i key the kic


the tx/rx liight is green when your radio is recieving signals and turns red when you are sending signals. the ANT light is red when your SWR is too high (over 3)

1. turn the knob labeled swr cal all the way counter clockwise
2. set the rf swr cal switch to the CAL position
3 key up the mic and hold it while you rotate the swr cal knob until the needle reaches the swr cal postition
4. set the swr cal rf switch to the swr position
5. key up the mic while on chanel one (record the the number)
6. switch to chanel 40 key up the mic (record the number)
if the number on chanel one is lower than the number on chanel 40 then your antenna is too long.

2 cb's 1 antena ???


you cannot use one antenna on 2 units, the output power will hurt the other radio - not to mention greatly affect your standing wave radiation, greatly decreasing your range. You will have to run 2 antennas, but make sure to keep them as high as possible and at least 6 feet apart.
