My Solara Dsc radio, which has worked well for several years, suddenly began blowingthe 2 amp fuse on the red power line whenever the transmit button was pushed on the mic. Why?


No worries here.
According to Uniden, the 6 amp fast blow fuse is the correct one.
Not entirely sure why there'd be a 2 amp with your old radio, but I suspect the radio is good.

My uniden ltd 715 receives from my handheld but when I transmit to handheld it just buzzes.


Just to clarify something, you say that your hand-held VHF can receive a clear transmission from the Uniden, now which of the radios are buzzing, the Uniden or the HH?. If it's the hand-held buzzing try transmitting on the low watt on the Uniden, get some distance from the radio, because if the hand-held are to close to the on the Uniden on high watt you will get a buzzing, the signal are overpowering the receiver of the hand-held, try getting the minimum of 30 feet away. Good luck.

This is almost always caused by a poor ground. I would suggest you run your ground wire (larger the better) back right to the negative terminal of the battery.

Hope this is helpful.

I just purchased two radios. How far will they transmit and receive with good clarity in the city? I need to transmit and receive from about six to eight miles away clearly. Thanks.


bobengelman,

Typically and unmodified handheld CB will have a decent talk distance of 1-2 miles with both being a handheld. Further distances can be had if one of the radios was a mobile or base station with distances of more than five miles with weak signals. In some cases the antenna can be changed to a better longer antenna. Extention type antennas typically transmit about a mile per watt. Conditions such as terrain will have an impact on signal specifically mountains or buildings. Better results may also be had by purchasing a mobile magnet mount with a PL-259 to BNC to fit the radio. A magnet mount placed on a air conditioning unit or large cookiesheet as high as possible will make decent gains for distance if the radios are intended to be stationary.

Navman VHF 7100 Radio neither receiving nor transmitting


I would suggest checking your antenna/coax connector. I am not sure what kind of antenna or ,mount you are using but I would suspect it being something in the antenna. Most radios are designed to not transmit if the antenna is broke or not connected at all. When you say bent do you mean metal bent or bent at the base? So that would be where I start. Can you try a different antenna? Hope you track it down. N5ARK
