Question about Uniden Oceanus DSC Wham ready Fixed Mount VHF 2-Way Radio

Uniden VHF Marine DSC Series 25 Watt Radio

My VHF radio is installed "thru the wall" above the helm. I have an access to the wiring but i am not able to get to the back of the radio. I think i need to replace the fuse, since it does not power up. My am fm radio had the same problem and the fuse was the answer.

So, before I cut the radio out of it's location, i just want to make sure the fuse is "in line" near the back side of the unit.

Thanks!

Typically there is an inline fuse in the power cord. It is not built into the back of the unit. If access to the back is restricted, they should have cut out the fuse and installed it near the power buss that the power cord is attached to. How was it flush mounted if you don't have access to the back of the unit? It's not possible to attach the flush mount brackets without access. It's possible that the radio is held in place using sealant. If you are sure there's no way to pull the panel, try gently prying the radio out of the hole working around the edge to break the seal.

My uniden solara dsc has poor reception, how can i find the service manual. am a radio technician.


Hi!

We have a Uniden Oceanus DSC, which we bought as an upgrade for our MC-620. It has been my experience (20 years as a broadcast engineer) that reception issues are almost ALWAYS caused by the antenna. Antenna location is the easiest to fix, VHF being line-of-sight, HIGHER is better. We have our antenna on top of the mast (40' above the surface of the water). It has been my experience as well that Uniden products are very nearly bulletproof and RARELY need servicing. I'd concentrate mainly on checking your antenna installation.

Uniden will sell you a service manual, but they are indeed SPENDY. (Over $100US) Which is JUST about what your radio costs new.

Sorry I couldn't have been the bearer of better news.

My uniden ltd 715 receives from my handheld but when I transmit to handheld it just buzzes.


Just to clarify something, you say that your hand-held VHF can receive a clear transmission from the Uniden, now which of the radios are buzzing, the Uniden or the HH?. If it's the hand-held buzzing try transmitting on the low watt on the Uniden, get some distance from the radio, because if the hand-held are to close to the on the Uniden on high watt you will get a buzzing, the signal are overpowering the receiver of the hand-held, try getting the minimum of 30 feet away. Good luck.

I just purchased a uniden solara dsc.I HOOKED IT UP AND THE NOAA WORKS BUT I TRIED TALKING AND NOTHING HAPPENED.(I have a tractor with a radio and neither of us could hear each other).


The Uniden Solara is a MARINE RADIO not a CB. Marine (boat) radios operate in the VHF-Hi range and CB is in the VHF-Lo range. You also need a license to operate a marine radio, or you can identify yourself with the name of your boat but you MUST be in the water.
