This could be several things, first I'd look at your antenna system,make sure its matched to your truck. When I say this you need a good ground good coax at least 18 foot,the mount and it installed right and the right kind of antenna, they make many different one because not all work on what you're installing it on. Then I'd check your mic if it has a broke wire it can also cause the problem you're having, most midland mics are wired different so don't just find another one.

I have lots of motor noise. when i unplug antenna it stops


The motor noise comes through power wires and antenna pickup. Get an old ferrite bar out of an old junk AM radio. That black bar with wire wound on it inside AM/FM radios. Tape it to your Antenna coax or try to add 2 of them. Just tape them to the coax at about 6" inches from your radio. Try to add a power wire filter to the RED(+) 12 volt wire and Black wire(-) to your radio. A power filter is just a Ferrite bead or small bar with about 10 wounds of wire and a 470uf capacitor from (+) to ground(black -). Make sure polarity on capacitor is wired (+)(-) that way too. Radio Shack has a "Power" line noise filter kit, that hooks up under your dash. Ask Radio Shack personnel about this they will help you locate a "noise filter" for noisy alternators.Its simple, also, your radio is doing a fine job if it picks up that sensitive through the antenna. That just shows you your antenna is doing a good job. I had a problem like that --I only talked on my CB with the ignition turned off though, it made since to park and talk.

check the speaker it may be dry rotted and not working.use an external speaker. depending on the time of day you probably couldn't reach any one any way Get a friend to talk on another radio while you listen and then let him listen for you.

Whinning noise when talking


The antenna could be at fault causing feedback into the radio. check with a good SWR meter to confirm this. Also check the power lead to the radio, try to connect directly to the battery.....

My magnum when i key up it blows the fuse,what could it be?


check your aerial for open/short circuit/power wiring to cb in truck/upgrade the fuse by 1 amp/mike wiring (tx/rx) if the cb shop could'nt find anything wrong then the faults in the truck/aerial/power? or the cb shops not up to much! you could have a faulty output transistor in the cb if all else fails?

Rushing sound (noise) galaxy 88 HL


RUSHING SOUND ?
1. Get the noise then disconnect the coax and see if noise goes away on receive, if noise goes away then address the ground on your antenna,
if noise still there then address the ground wire from power source
