    Hi, Many thanks for your help, This is a photo I found on the web.

    Here is the address of the place I found the diagram. www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Port/1158

    The CB is an 820, the 822 just means it has an in-car cradle with it.

  • Raymondo Apr 26, 2008

    Thank you very much, I shall give it a try.

    Midland keep saying everywhere that the cd can only be used in US, outside us they say you can only use it for recreational use.
    However on many cbs have a set of jumpers that define frequency dode (not necesarily).
    I couldn't find any schematics for it, I do not think Midland even distributes them outside US.
    If you send me the link you found with the instuction on how to wire jumpers to extend frequencies, that may be helpful, I can see what I can get from there

    Check this forum CB Radio Forum • View topic - Midland 75-822 AM Transceiver
    They say there is no way to use it outside US.
    Apparently such a nice handheld here is just more than a toy over here.
    Here is the diagram
    In UK you should be able to use only the frequencies
    26.965 - 27.405
    FM
    And not the channels
    27.6 - 27.99
    FM

    here are frequencies in UK, same in Ireland
    the 75-822 reaches up to band D, which is 26.965 - 27.405
    FM, and can be used in UK and Ireland.
    Your CB should be already working on band D, if you are sure that it is not , check if it on fre quencies A B C, as in diagram , there should bi 4 jumpers, the last one is D.

    I forgot to mention, the alan-42 in diagram is really an export 75-822 that's branded with the Alan name, the board should be the same, with jumpers in same position.

  • Ginko
    Ginko Apr 23, 2008

    Check that the plate you posted is for same model
    If it is you have to connect jumper 4 for 40 channels band D, or jumper 3 and 4 for band C and D..
    Y
    You can use band D in UK and IR, but cb need to be CEPT approved, or its use won't be legal (read this for more info:Rec.radio.cb Frequently Asked Questions) .
    What you cannot use is the band E (27.6-27.9) , available to any uk-made handset.
    It will be helpful if you can post thehttp://www...... from which you get the picture

    There is no 75-822 , only 810 and 820, board in pic is from 820. Is roughly the same thing, jumper d always get the first channels of UK band, jumpers may be in different position.

  • Ginko
    Ginko Apr 25, 2008

    If the board is the same, then you get frequency on band d by connecting jumper 4 for band D uk frequencies.
    Jumpers frequencies are as following:




    J1=A
    25.615-26055MHz

    J2=b
    26.065-26.505MHz

    J3=C
    26.515-26.955MHz

    J4= d
    26.965-27.405MHz
    Do no forget the legality issue if you decide to use the CB in UK and Europe.

How can I get my midland 9001z from AM to FM


Hi Trevor,

The Midland radio you have is NOT capable of FM transmit & receive. It is a Citizen's Band radio that operates on channels 1 thru 40 that are assigned to the 26.965-27.405 MHz frequency range. These are the standard 40 Ch CB frequencies in the U.S. (and may not be legal for use in other parts of the world without a license from your country's communications authorities). It also offers Weather Band reception - again these are US frequencies that may or may not even be used at all in the UK. Since the radio only displays a channel number, you don't actually know the frequency you're monitoring or transmitting on. Your friends on CH 5 may be in a completely different band.

Even if they are on the same frequency, the fact that they are operating in FM mode means that you would hear something - but it may not be intelligible - and the same would be for them listening to you transmit in AM mode. If you could have them switch their radio to AM, all would be fine. I suspect they use FM as there is much less static when compared to AM.

If they won't change to FM, you'll either have to stop trying to talk to them or buy a radio capable of FM (and make sure it has the same frequencies as theirs!).

Good luck!

Purchased a midland 75 785 from u s will it work on u k channels


  • For 11 meter (CB) the standard 40 channels will be the exactly same as the "EU" set of frequencies (channels). However the "UK" 11 meter (40 channels) and the U.S.A. 40 11 meter (40channels CB) will not work together at all. This includes any actual Citizen Band radio, excluding Export 10 an 12 meter radios often labeled as "CB'S" which they are not.

  • Hope this helps.

Cobra 19 DX IV, I bought this unit in america, but i live in the U.K. and can't pick up any channels, does this unit Only work in america, can i get somthing for it to work in england??? Thanks...


  • The UK uses more FM frequencies than AM frequencies. So the CB will work over there just fine but you will need to find someone who uses them frequencies as well or it may no be much fun. Here is a frequency chart for what we in America call import radios shipped from over there. http://macuk.org.uk/cbchart.htm 27.555 FM is the main frequency used in the UK but the Cobra 19 is a strictly AM CB. Also on the link on the far right are the standard 40 channel frequencies from the UK version of CB's and not one is the same as the Cobra 19 as the UK uses FM for their 40 channel CB radios.
  • Here is the 40 channel CB frequency chart utilized in America http://www.csgnetwork.com/cbradiofreq.html
  • Hope this clarifies things for you.

What services use radio frequencies from 46mhz to 46.390 mhz


You have not told us which country you are in. You are probably in the UK since that is where a radio covering 46-46.39MHz is most likely to be found. The frequencies are generally not used in the UK. Be aware that radio transceivers with this coverage are still illegal to possess, use or offer for sale in the UK.

You have a bad detector in the radio. Needs serviced. Change the bad detector diode and it should work. Good Luck
