Cannot transmit, getting a constant tone while holding talk button and transmit light not coming on, any help?


Check the headset jack. There may be something inside causing a short. also, the CLS has an audio tone out button. Be certain you are not pressing it as you push the PTT button. The PTT is odd on this radio, it is the top BIG rubber button on top FRONT. Many customers get this confused with the tone transmit button.

When my wife and I travel in different cars we like to use the CB. She uses the handheld, I have a CB in my truck. When transmitting I know she is talking but it is all garbled. She hears me fine.


who is transmitting if it is someone else and you are hearing garbled it could be because they are using single side band on their A.M. CB radio .which your radio cannot detect.

Handheld Radio Shack CB radio TRC-230 I can hear people but no one can hear me


First, lets make sure that the unit does transmit. Get a power meter and see how much power it transmits. If no power is being radiated, you need to have a technician check out the unit.
If you have power then pick a less crowded time to test out if anyone can hear you. Other people with more powerful equipments can only be a problem when you are transmitting on the same channel and both of you happen to transmit at the same time all the time. Chances are remote that this is your problem. Good luck. es

I can only hear the others. When I talk they can't hear and my red anntenna keeps coming on when I push button to talk.


Assuming the antenna is mounted and grounded correctly,when you try to transmit/talk does your meter needle move to the right with your voice,if it doesn't make sure meter knob is set to receive/transmit or mod[modulate] does it move to right now,if not make sure the mic gain knob is turned up or if it is a power mic,is it turned up&have a fresh battery.The antenna light could mean high swr readings which you will have to adjust by tuning the antenna with the radio meter or external meter,you can search swr adjustment on your computer if unfamiliar..some antenna warning lights are factory set too sensitive but most times are telling you there is a problem.If all is set&tuned properly and you still can't get a local signal to respond, your radios transmit finals could be blown,which you'll need a qualified radio tech to determine..Good luck& 73's

My cb will turn on but i cannot talk to anyone, im getting nothing. Why?


Does it Transmit?? Does meter show transmit?? Can you hear?? If its hearing an transmit gone..it could be Microphone, or speaker, or other more serious problems inside circuit. Change mics and hook up Ext Spkr. If that does not do it, then radio is gone. Buy new radio instead of repairs.

I have a cobra 25 ltd classic that I bought from a CB shop it was fixed to have 50 W .you can see all the changes made on it .I have it hooked up with two wips 4 ft 1000 w fire sticks and a power mike it...


either he over tuned it and burned the radio out this can happen just cause a radio transmits 50 watts dosent mean the circuity can handle it and it will burn the radio because of overload. another factor is if you are running high swrs with that kinda out put you will fry it sounds like its getting hot and radios dont work well when they get hot take it to a tech tell him what was done to the radio and what it is doing. you can test the radio by buying a watt modulation meter it will tell you excacley what the radio is putting out I doubt its transmitting 50 watts that is a single final radio unless he modified the final.good luck.

check the SWR. the antenna may not be tuned. Also, you may be hearing skip. If so, they are thousands of miles away, and you don't have enough power to talk to them.

Find some one close to test it.

Rushing sound (noise) galaxy 88 HL


RUSHING SOUND ?
1. Get the noise then disconnect the coax and see if noise goes away on receive, if noise goes away then address the ground on your antenna,
if noise still there then address the ground wire from power source
