Question about Connex 3300 240-Channels Base CB Radio

2 Answers

Static restricting RF signal while rolling down the road but stops when i apply the brake or when i slow down to stop or when I am sitting still. I drive a truck for a living which is an international, i have tried running a ground wire from frame to antenna, running power strait to batteries still no luck. This static pegs the needle on the meter half way across. I also installed an 1500w antenna oil cooled coils.

Are you using the factory coax. A lot of Internationals have a terrible setup from the factory, they run the coax into a junction box and run your cb coax and your fm radio out of it. You could be getting bad rf feedback through from the FM radio. I would next try a regular antenna mounting bracket setup with a good stranded center coax with at least a 95% braided shielding. You have been on the right track, most problems like this is a process of elimination. If this doesn't fix the problem, or you already have this setup, please reply on here or email me at:

I would be more than happy to assist you with your problem.

You're getting RFI coming from the Trucks main control module or one of the auxiliary system's control modules coming into the radio THROUGH through the antenna. This one is going to be tough.

How do i stop the intermittent static?!


Static can be caused by a poorly charged or bad battery. Try cleaning your battery contacts with a pencil eraser, on the battery, radio, and charger. Then recharge the batteries and see if the problem still exists. If so, try a battery from a known good unit and see if it stops the static.

If the battery is not the issue, you could simply have environmental noise. RF (radio frequency wave) in the environment is a common problem in urban areas. If you are using the radios in or around computers and other electronic devices, coil the cords to these devices and make them tidy. RF noise can be emitted through the cord like it is an antenna of sorts. Coiling will reduce this effect.

If your radios have PL capability, aka private line code, interference eliminator, turn it on, or change the setting. This should block out unwanted noise and interference.

Best regards.

When i try to stop in the snow or rain my brakes kick back and make a funny noise and i can't stop at all. only when i use booth feet


Those are your anti-lock brakes. Either there is a malfunction, or you are applying to much brake for the road conditions, which is causing the anti-lock brakes to activate. If the road conditions are slick and hazardous, slow down and start stopping sooner.

Windows wont roll up and down and hazard continues to click even when not on.


These are two separate issues.The most common cause of the clicking is the hazard switch located above the radio.Replacing this generally takes care of that issue occassionally it is a malfunction in the turn signal switch but most likely the hazard switch. If all windows are affected would check fuses first.If the windows roll down from the corresponding switches example rf allows rf to roll down. If not suspect an electrical issue such as fuse or relay.If they do roll down from the switches on the doors but not the drivers door possible a master switch issue.Drivers door contains a master switch that controls all windows.Do the windows work at all?

URC-9910 remote: The RF part for this remote stopped working.


I have the same remote as yours and occasionally the RF remote is not working due the interference signal from outside or next door at certain hours.
My suggestions:
(1) To relocate the receiver and reposition the anntena for better reception of the RF signal from the remote unit.
(2) Replaced the battery.

Hope these help!
