wrong mike is plugged to radio , many radios have the option to change the channels via two buttons on mike , unfortunately the mike connectors are pretty standard so they all hook right in easy , but that doesn't mean it's making the right connections inside , a good radio shop (there are still a few around if you look 4 them) will be able to rewire your mike to work on that radio if that's what u want to run
go to you tube and type in your radio make and model and watch the review on that radio there is a freq adjustment pod for ssb adjustment. they might tell you if not take it to a radio tech and he should be able to alighn it. there is more than one pod for ssb transmitt and receive.
I doubt there is a tune up for the the handhelds if you can't find it i couldn't find it some radios you just can't tune iam sure there is a power pod for it but i don't think its going to make much diffrence for example iam running a cobra 19 dx 4 i did find the mods for it but no pod adjustments there were but
i was told not to adjust them because it just not worth the time not much diffrence. so they only adjustment was mod and spread some of the transmitt coils and i did get 2 watts out of the radio with a 15 watt swing . hand helds are for short range. If you have a external antenna hook up you could get more range that way hook it up to a mobile antenna check swrs though. hope this helped you.
Wire your radio directly to battery!
Run about 12 guage stranded wire to your battery with a Blade fuse standard size with a 25 amp fuse sice your using a CB Amplifier inbetween put a 30 amp auto relay.going through the switching contacts.
Now wire a grond to 1 side of relay coil the other use a12v source from fuse box so when key is turned on the radio will come on! If you want cb to come on anytime then I suggest skip relay and rub wires to
the floor with insulated banna connectors but put that fuse in line also the fuses on your cb and amplifier to.
Your problem is your trying to gather DC for your radio off a vecical power source them wires are to thin and you may be getting a Bad ground saight t the battery only best way! If your radio gets weak check your battery if you hve a cb amplifier on turn off durring transmissions without car running! goood luck
The RK56 was a good mike until Telex bought out Turner many years ago. Now the audio output is lower than it used to be & it's not a compatibility issue as Galaxy radios have microphone amplifier circuits similar to most other CB & 10-Meter radios. You'd have been better off buying an Astatic 636L or even a generic noise-cancelling mike instead. The only thing I can recommend is to hold the mike on your cheek, close to but not directly in front of your mouth, with the grille facing it & speak in a louder than usual voice.
Hello...the best way without making internal adjustments...is to use an amplifier microphone...maybe a turner style mike hand or base...there is just a connector soldeing job and is usally an instruction for what pins to connect for your radio...it is often no adjustment internally in your radio that is good becauie it can give the result of splatter and over modulation...good luck Ron
