Question about Magnum 257 CB Radio

1 Answer

257 Talkback I have been trying for months to find a way to add talkback to my 257. I've tried grounding the ext sp jack to ground. I've tried pin 2 of the mic plug to the negative side of the speaker. Any ideas on how to add talkback?

I have the ROADPRO RPPS-550 4 Noise Cancelling CB Extension Speaker with Talkback, why is there 2 male plugs and where do they get plugged in at. One obviously to the CB radio. The other ???


Both should go to the CB radio. One would be for "audio out" from the radio, the other should be for "audio in" to the radio to handle the "Talkback" feature. I doubt that most CB radios will support this. Your best bet is to determine which plug provides output to the speaker (so you have better audio output from your CB - if that's actually possible) and disregard the 2nd plug if your radio doesn't support it. Hope this helps.

Want to get talkback in a cobra 29


When you key up the mic ungrounds the speaker so you don't hear anything through it, so to get talkback you're putting a 100 ohm 1, or 2 watt resistor between the switched side of the speaker and ground, now when unkeyed the mic grounds the speaker as usual, but when you key the resistor allows a bit of audio from the audio amplifier, not decoded RF, to still get through. I think the pa/ext spkr. jacks are a convenient place to connect it. You may decide to control talkback by running the circut thru a switch like brite / dim switch . Want less talkback, use more resistance, 150 ohm . Too much talkback can become feedback . I hope this helps, J

Hi, I have a connex 4600 turbo and I have a problem with the talkback on/off switch wiring. Can you tell me were the white wire attaches to from the switch? Thanks


The white wire coming from the Talkback switch goes to The middle of TR30. This location is towrd the back of the radio on the right hand side by the transformer with the radio facing at you!!

I want talkback on my cobra 29ltd classic radio how do i do this myself


Open the case on your radio. Solder a 100 ohm resistor between the pa jack and ext speaker jack. You can add a switch if you like to turn it on and off. The lower the resistance, the louder the talkback.

ADD TALKBACK TO A UNIDEN 510 WITHOUT A PA JACK


In theory you could locate the AUDIO pin from the back of the mic jack, and add a resistor from there to the center pin of the ext speaker jack in the same manner as you would a PA jack.  But look into more before you do as I have never done it that way and Unidens sometimes have a funky way of wiring their boards.  If I had one laying around I would try it out but I don't.  best of luck!

WANT TO ADD TALKBACK IN A RADIO


A 200 ohm 1-watt resistor across pins 1 & 4 of the mic jack will make some talkback. More or less resistance will make less or more talkback. Note the association of less and more.

Galaxy dx-66 squeals on talkback


timspur, hi. First off, using the talkback with a tuned Galaxy will give you problems, so you need to use a good noise cancelling mic like a RK 56, or Astatic 636. If your running an amp, that will only amplify the problem. Here is a mod if your comfortable working on your radio, to tone down the TB volume.
******
Talkback can become distorted if these radios have been "peaked," and there is no cure because the talkback just amplifies what goes to the RF section. Try adding a 470k ohm resistor from junction of C155/R207 to the junction of C187/R235 on the solder side of the board. This will also give you clean talkback on SSB and FM. Try different values of resistance to get the amount of volume you want. The less the resistance the louder the talkback will be.**
Hope this was what your looking for,, I know for a fact that the Astatic mics do help tone it down.
Let us know,,, Mechanic
