Question about Raytheon VHF 53 CB Radio

1 Answer

Two way radios


I want two way radios to use on our properties. I bought a Midland pair and in the fine print they require an FCC license, which is $85 additional dollars on top of what I paid for the radios!

I'm looking for an easy, private, solution with maximum range.

All help appreciated,
Andrea

Well, As long as you are not using them all over the place, and are just using them privately, you should be fine, unless they are operating on HAM bands.

If you are just talking about 2 professional walkie talkies, then you should be ok.

The chances of the FCC bothering you are slim to none considering there are only 16 field offices in the usa.

those licenses are really for big companies etc.

If you are using them privately and not for business, you have nothing to worry about.

only other thing you can use is GMRS, ones you buy at walmart or a sporting goods place, but other people with the same radio can listen in.

I need the frequencies for this radio


Here's a list: Frequency Chart

Keep in mind - only those frequencies in "D" can be transmitted on in the US. These are the Citizen's Band (or C.B.) Radio frequencies. The others are above and below the FCC allotted range for CB. Transmitting on these other frequencies requires an FCC issued license.

You can face fines, imprisonment or both if caught transmitting without the proper license.

Purchased a midland 75 785 from u s will it work on u k channels


  • For 11 meter (CB) the standard 40 channels will be the exactly same as the "EU" set of frequencies (channels). However the "UK" 11 meter (40 channels) and the U.S.A. 40 11 meter (40channels CB) will not work together at all. This includes any actual Citizen Band radio, excluding Export 10 an 12 meter radios often labeled as "CB'S" which they are not.

  • Hope this helps.

How can i modify the midland 75-822 for more channels?


Modding your CB for more channels puts the radio into Ham bands which you need a license to transmit on, also modding a CB violates FCC part 95 rules and is therefor illegal to transmit with and the hams report most illegal transmitting on there band

How do I get back to regular CB channels on the 75-822? All I can get is 27.xx and 26.xx. Where are the 1-40 channels.


I'm guessing that you bought the CB from a person not a company the CB band is between 26Mhz and 27Mhz unfortunately your CB was Modded to talk on Ham radio frequency's what i would suggest is one of two things if you are good at electrical soldering get a schematic and take out the mod or look on-line for a ham radio store like ham radio outlet near you and see if they can un modd it.

if you bought it from a store return it or talk to midland to see if they can fix/reset it at http://www.midlandradio.com/Contact-Us

one other thing until the radio is fixed it is not FCC part 95 or 97 compliant and is therefor illegal to transmit with it

Midland model no. 77-092, bought it used. did not


yeap when the magic smoke is let loose. does it work now? or did leave it alone? there will be a burnt diode, possible burt circuit traces. cb shop temple, tx on yahoo search.. and if lucky thats all and it should work fine. if the traces didn't burn they the audio transistor can get damaged. but most times it will burn the traces..
