You have an antenna problem. Get a good antenna, such as a Wilson 1000 & use the SWR function in the radio to tune it. Wilson antenna come with tuning instructions.

I need to get my Uniden mdh125 radio antenna fixed.


To be honest with the current cost of the radio it would be cheaper to buy a replacement or go to Uniden's web site and check a factory outlet store like the one here Uniden 2 Way Radios Two Way Walkie Talkie Radios Marine Radios CB Radios... and purchase one rather than pay to have it fixed.

I have 29ltd love the radio i'm over the road truck. I reasonnly replace my old steel whip center load antenna put 4' k40 top load one.ran new coax 18' grey. I get the red ( ant) light comes on...


Check SWR with a meter, if its 1.1 to 1.5 then its fine no matter what the light says. The light can be adjusted inside to not light up until its very high(Its adjustable with a Variable knob inside) Get a Cb shop to check it out. I'd go for LIL Wilson 500 or 1000 antennas, I hear they are superb.

Need an replacement antenna for my radio shack pro-508 scanner. Radio shack does not carry them anymore


Hi.

Check on eBay. You need a standard BNC connector antenna for this scanner. Radio Shack scanners are made by Uniden so a Uniden BNC antenna will fit your unit.

Here's a link for an antenna on eBay:

Uniden pc78elite antenna light


What kind of antenna is it? Have you checked your standing wave? To do this process you will need a field strenth or a SWR meter to do it,would be cheaper to have it checked at Radio Shack or you can buy one,and do it yourself. Some radio antenna light come on when transmitting,....hope this helps....

Matching Antenna, or ??????


If the antenna is tunable, you definitely need to start out by having the swr set properly on the antenna. Also, make sure the plastic ferrel, (the small round white piece) is between the top of the antenna bracked and the antenna itself. It is there to make sure the antenna does not ground out to the vehicle. If the antenna is grounding out, it will be like no antenna at all. I have also had a few customers that have had broken coaxes straight out of the factory package on cheaper antenna setups.
