I have a midland 2 way radio trying to transmit and receive without static


If a handheld radios check your battery and/or antenna. Trade with a known good unit to see if the problem is solved with either. A poor battery can often cause static.

If a mobile radio, check your antenna connections and your antenna and coil. This could be a sign of a poor antenna or antenna set-up.

Best regards.

Does a midland cb 40 ch have a range for distance?


  • Hi, I can help.

  • In general a CB goes roughly 1 mile per watt of power. A Midland CB out of the box will get you about 5 miles. After a Peak and Tune, a Midland CB can get out around 25 miles. If you put an SWR/Watt meter inline you can tell how much your rig is putting out.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

regards, Tony

I have spotty reception on a handheld CB and was wondering if there is a testing procedure I can use to check the antenna and radio. I have a multimeter. It's a radio shack handheld with weather bands...


The antenna is your problem not much gain. Height is everything tx and rx. Although it would not compare to a conventional cb size negates performance. Seeing is believing in this case hearing get adapter to connect to standard coax of antenna. (PL259) to BNC Coax Adapter Radio Shack sells them. And dont ask or buy any radios there. They are hardly the radioshack of choice anymore.

  • If you put 4 watts into a four-foot antenna, you will get the same power out of that antenna as if you were putting 2 watts into a 102-inch whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 3-foot antenna you will get the same power out as if you were putting about 1.5 watts into a 102-inch whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 7.5 inch antenna on a hand held CB, it would put out as much power as a third of a watt into a 102-whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna, it is the same output as if you put 11 watts into a 3-foot whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna,, it is the same as if you put 14 watts into a 28-inch antenna.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna, it is the same as if you put 54 watts into a 7.5 antenna.

Plug portable whip antenna into radio, power on with car lighter, no reception...how do I tell if radio itself is not working properly


To check your radio you will need a ANTENNA RADIO TESTER Shakespeare make a cheap tester STYLE: ART-3 works good. Good luck.

Is it my CB antenna or something else


First off, Midland makes a fine radio. Make sure your squelch is turned all the way down to receive distant signals (down meaning counter clockwise). The through the glass antennas are not the best thing in the world. I personally use a 102" whip and a 6" spring on a modified mirror mount. It is installed on the tailgate side of the tool box. The TX and RX is amazing. Wilson and K40 make great antennas also.

I recently purchaced 2 Midland CB radios and headsets to go on two motorcycles. When I use them I get excessive feedback. It appears that the metal motorcycle handlebars interfere with the rubber antenna....


The problem is with the headsets, not the motorcycle. If the headsets are generic they may not have the proper mic connections. How do the radios work without the headsets?
