Running most any regular cb, including this one barefoot (with no kicker), having a good antenna, set up with a good ground plane or a no-goundplane antenna, good coax; basically everything in good working order, you can usually bank on about 4 to 5 miles crisp and clear, and at least 6 to 10 miles fairly clear. Of course the further out you get it will start to fade out.

Some radios do better than others, but those are the general numbers I have seen in my years of experience.

High pitched squeal when trying to transmit


What mic are you using for this. It won't take just any mic. It has to be wired midland.

I have a midland 1001z cb radio with a magnetic mount attenna by cobra. When I transmit receivers are getting a lot of squealing. Before I bought the midland i had a radio shack cb which worked find.


is this same antenna as before. you should always check the SWR's to see if set correctly.. other than that. bad grounds, bad microphone can make any radio squeal..

Receivers complain about squeeling noise from my midland 1001z when I transmit. Is this an RF Gain setting problem?


I had the same (squealing) problem on transmit with the Midland 1001Z when I used it indoors as a base unit. The problem was my power supply: it broke into oscillation when drawing more than 150 mA at 13.8V. The 1001Z draws about 150 mA on Receive, and much more (but only about 900 mA) on Transmit. If using the 1001Z as a base unit, I suggest you power it with a fully-charged car battery indoors, or test your power supply to check if it can't supply the required 1 Amp, approx., on Transmit. It's a GREAT radio, just give it a good power supply. My power supply was defective out of the box, but now I have a good one and get great reports on signal strength and audio quality. Remarkable, for the low price and 3 year warranty. Good luck!

Need to tune and peak my midland 1000 cb


sounds like a problem to me . I have one that was in fair shape that had the same symptoms , I pounded the crop out of it with a hammer and now it doesn't recieve anything . You can't find a service manual for it ,unless midland will sell you one but don't hold your breath . Remember a 26 oz. hammer works good but not the radio.

MIdland no sound s/rf dancing


may be u burned yr final transistors...check if yr antenna is well grounded and try just after this to transmit, if the indicator is not stable on the green area when you are in "am" modulation stop to try and bring to the assistance

Midland squealing when talking


soundwas keying up at the same time.s like it could be one of two problems. a loose wire in the mic or some one near you keyed up the same time as you. if the wire in the mic is loose sodder it. If some one keyed up near you you might have blown the reciever chip.
