THE battery MUST be charged with the correct charger. Assuming that is the case new batteries need to be cycled a few times before they come good...Also you MUST use the exact same spec battery in mAH. if you are using ni-cads they need to be fully discharged to a safe low level before recharging as they suffer from memory type the need to be charge cycled a few times before they come good. There are problems with all types of rechargable batteries...Makers have still not reached perfection..never leave a radio always connected
to the ac line , this will stagnate the battery/cells causing problems you must use your device on battery power in order to cycle the same. This is the main reason why laptop batteries have a short life.

Midland 75 785 purchase from us will it work on uk 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.

I have a Midland 75-822 that I run off adapter power all the time. How do I turn off the battery save function? With it pulsing the power on and off I miss the firt syllable when someone transmits.

  • Their is no power save mode on this CB in the terms I think your thinking of. There is a high and low power that deals with how much power the CB puts out when transmitting that will make your battery last longer but this would have no bearing on the issue you are having.

  • If you are using a power cord all the time then remove the batteries from the CB until you need them. There are two thumb clips you pull down on and pop the compartments off (one is for rechargeable and one is for regular Alkaline batteries).

  • If the CB is actually powering on and off you have a power feed issue such as a bad connection, a failing power feed socket, a weak inline fuse on the power cord about to blow or something internal is malfunctioning.

  • Hope this helps.

CB radio will not put out any distance

Sounds like its not getting its full power to operate, check that each one of the nine batteries have the full volts it takes to get the four watts out-put, also check the antenna where it connects to radio,sometimes this gets corroded and needs to be cleaned
