    Hi Ken
    One problem is that the radios I have were used by a previous bicycle club and they did not come with owners manuals. So I am not sure of the procedure to switch the Privacy Code/CTCSS feature. Is there any place I can get or download the manual. I have searched the internet and not found any.

Hello dgbuhl,

Check the Continuous Tone Coded Squelch (CTCSS) settings on all the radios. (Note that some manufacturers refer to this feature as a Privacy Code or Quiet Code. The actual name of the feature may vary.)

In order for your radios to communicate with eachother all of the radios need to be on the same channel and have the same CTCSS / Privacy Code programmed (or the CTCSS feature must be disabled on all the radios). If CTCSS is enabled on one of the radios, but not the other, the situation you describe would occur.
Check your user's manual for more information on the Privacy Tones and how to set them.

Best Regards,
Ken

    Hi again dgbuhl,



    The Cherokee line of radios was made by a company called Wireless Marketing in Schaumburg, IL. I do not believe that this company is still in business. I was able to locate their old website, address and phone number with a quick websearch. However none of this data appears to be current.



    Sadly that may mean that finding a manual or getting further support on the product could be a tall order.



    For your reference,the old contact information is:



    Wireless Marketing Corporation

    1212 Remington Rd.
    Schaumburg, IL 60008

    1-800-259-0959
    http://www.wirelessmarketing.com



    Sorry I couldn't provide any additional assistance.



    Best regards,

    Ken

Transmits and receives no modulation out


I am not an expert but I think there can be little or no modulation of the carrier wave unless there is an audio input to the modulator. Like any audio amplifier a transmitter modulator (amplitude modulation) is quiescent without an input.

If the modulation amplifier and audio pre-amp are working and modulating the carrier wave and the antenna is ok then audio modulated radio frequency must be being transmitted.

It would be an extremely good quality CB that had a modulation meter. Mostly all they have is a meter giving an indication of the rf power being sent to the antenna and that rf (radio frequency) power would be the same whether modulated or unmodulated.
The modulation envelope, incidentally, is traditionally viewed or measured with an oscilloscope.

The indicated rf power could be verified using a field strength meter but the only practical way to discover if a standard CB is transmitting modulated rf is to listen to the transmission on a suitable receiver. If the squelch is turned down it will be obvious if the rf carrier wave is being received as the hiss would be silenced. If no audio is received it can be assumed none is being transmitted.

I suggest you try another microphone and lead and if that doesn't work it is clearly a job for a repair shop.

Problem no squelch noise or speaker like its muted, but can hear weather ok shows receiving and ant ok


Since the radio cannot transmit on Weather bands, there is no need for the radio to detect if it is transmitting when receiving weather.
In CB mode (on CB channels) the radio will mute when transmitting. So... a guess is that it is muting, or transmitting all the time in CB mode. Check for a mic problem by removing the Mic from the radio ... if it receives CB with no mic connected, then there is an issue with the mic. Otherwise, unless the unit is in PA mode (public address mode) it is likely something internal and beyond the scope of this service.

How do I link uniden pmr845-2ck together


There is no "linking" of these radios. they simply have the ability to have silent receivers until a digital or subaudible tone is received that turns the audio on allowing you to hear the transmitted signal, this allows you to set the radio to only hear the correct transmitted signal...

Flashing red light on radio where it thinks its recieving. Transmits fine but does not recieve.


Three things come to mind:
1) The radio is receiving, hence the light, but you may have a different PL code than the other radio and it is muting the transmission. Check your programming to be certain both radios are programmed alike. The red light indicates activity on your frequency.
2) Your radio may have a problem with the receive side of the radio or a bad speaker.
3) The transmitting radio may have a problem with transmit. This can be a sign of a bad battery. Swap batteries and see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, replace the battery. (It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so loss of transmit is common with a bad battery.)
Best regards.

29 nw LTD no audio on receive out the speaker in the radio or through the ext speaker and on transmit no audio.Radio shows a 4 watt dead key


If you take your external speaker and plug it into your PA jack in the back and key up your mic do you hear anything. If so then its not your IC chip if not its your IC chip and it will need to be replaced.

Unexpected problem


I think you can have problems with the speaker, if you see the signal display working when you reiceve the VCO is working. If you could check (I dont remeber if this radio has audio connectors) external speaker. If this radio has an audio conector, this conector switches the internal and external speaker and could be dirt and is not switching to the internal spk.
