Question about Radio Shack TRC-447 CB Radio
I have a Wuiden(madison) corp base station. When i first hooked it up to my Halcon 22ft base anntena it worked greast. I could hear a frien from far away at the same db with no prob. Then one ay i tunred it on and couldnt hear ne one. I got my friend to talk on radio he was very very very faint usually even with the notice i could hear him it was like he tuned his power down but he didnt. I also notcied that i used to be able to be heard from far a way. For example it is 10 blocked from my house to my friend. We both a abase station. From that distane i dont care what the noise level is we should have no prob. But i try to talk he says i cant pull u in sounds like ur far far away when im only 10 blocks. Nothing has been changed setting wise on my radio. I also noticed that if i listen very very closly to my speaker i get feed back i know that could be n e thing like bad coax short in anntena which should not happened because its new but that dont matter i know.if its not anntena, it could be my mic if not that what could it be.
Most technicians will tell you that 90% of CB problems are either in the microphone or antenna system*.
Of course, make sure you are tuned to the correct frequency and mode of operation, and that your RF Gain control is turned fully clockwise before trying to troubleshoot further.
* coax, connectors, antenna

I WOULD CHECK THE COAX CONNECTION @ THE ANT HAVE SOMEONE MOVE THE WIRE AT THE ANT CONNECTION WHILE YOU LISTEN INSIDE IF THERE A LOOSE GROUND YOU WILL HEAR IT ON THE RECEIVER SIDE.. ALSO CHECK YOUR MATCH WITH AN SWR METER.. DON'T TRUST THE ONE ON THE RADIO IF YOU HAVE ONE GOOD LUCK
