Question about Uniden Bearcat Pro PC78LTW 40-Channels Base CB Radio

1 Answer

I had the same problem with both red lights going on..............

When I key the mic and get an incoming transmission it makes a long schrill beep. But it works OK when there is a truck right next to me standing still in the yard (about 50 feet next to me.) My truck is brand new. I called Uniden and they said, a bad antenna connection? Or a defective radio?

I bought the radio brand new two days ago at a truck stop a hundred miles from my home. Please Help. Thanks.

RED SWR ALERT LIGHT COMES ON WHEN I KEY UP


In most cases if the mic works the common cause is the transmitter in the mother board is shorting out or not soldered to the board properly. another cause could be that your antenna is too close to the CB and will disrupt the signal.

HOW DO I INSTALL ROGER BEEP ON A GALAXY 33 CB RADIO


Does the roger beep come with instructions? It can vary between beep boards.

Typically it gets installed inline with the mic jack.

There is a wire or pin on the board where the tx wire, and the rx wires go.These wires get disconnected from the mic jack, then a wire goes to the tx pin. Then there is an audio wire that gets connected to the audio wire of the mic jack. Then the black wire to ground, and the red wire to switched 12v right off the power switch.

Here is a schematic of the board connected to the mic jack so you know what pin is what.

Again, I would need to know what roger beep board you would like to install.

After keying antena lite stays on have to turn radio off to clear


Make sure your antenna is tuned properly. The light comes on when the SWR is too high. This damages the final transmission transistor. You can blow the transmit in the radio.

If you need to tune your antenna and do not know now, go here and follow the instructions...

tune SWR

there could already be some damage to the final transistor already, it may be why the light stays on. Tune the antenna according to the article and then if the light stays on again, there may be something wrong with the radio, or the warning light is not adjusted correctly.

If your swr is okay, then turn vr6 all the way down so the light does not come on.

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.

Matching Antenna, or ??????


If the antenna is tunable, you definitely need to start out by having the swr set properly on the antenna. Also, make sure the plastic ferrel, (the small round white piece) is between the top of the antenna bracked and the antenna itself. It is there to make sure the antenna does not ground out to the vehicle. If the antenna is grounding out, it will be like no antenna at all. I have also had a few customers that have had broken coaxes straight out of the factory package on cheaper antenna setups.
