Getting out, but not recieving well...

I drive a truck for a living, Ive always had a good cb. Recently I just switched trucks that already had 2 antennas set up with all the coax run in it. I put in my cb and I am not recieving any thing farther than a half mile, however I can send for at least 2 or three miles or better. Not sure what to do short of ripping out the coax and putting on new antennas. Any suggestions?

Hi,

Initially pls check the grounding of both the antennas and/or their mounts. Thereafter, an SWR check/reading would also be good as it will not only tell you how efficient your antenna is in transmit but likewise in receive.

Additionally, a two (2) antenna set-up (twin tracker) is directional and therefore would have blind spots on either sides and being on a truck (especially with load/trailer) probably even at the back.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I bought my 10" dragon express les than one week i didnt use it til 3 days ago When it needed to b charged I took the cord out of the port. The port came with it.


they sell the product and the warranty that goes with it.
It is not fit for the purpose or use when you went to use it so it is a problem that radio shack does not need so they are obliged to replace it or have it fixed even to keep good customer relations
probably not worth the effort but seek legal advice as to where you stand and get the shop to do the right thing
Of course you could always go to the social media and state the facts about the service from radio shack

How to pair w/ipad?


On iPad, go to Settings (the cog wheel), Bluetooth. Make sure Bluetooth is on. Switch on your headphones. When iPad finds them, click Pair.

If you have any problems and Bluetooth is already on, turn it off and then back on.

Why are callers getting a busy and then "service is restricted" message when they call me?


Its not the phone you have a dead short in one of your phone jacks. Call you phone provider and have them run the short down. If you have VOIP or service from a cable modem plug the base straight into the Tel1 plug in the back of the modem.

Can not connect my 9xxBackbeat bluetooth headphone to my laptop. My OS (Win 7 x32) recognize this device but then it says it can download the driver to run this device


In order to use this headset, your built-in Bluetooth in your PC needs to support the hands free profile, audio and A2DP profile. If it does, all you need to do is hold in the power button on the headset until you see the light on the headset flashing red/blue, red/blue. If it doesn't you'll need to load it onto your computer. Once the headset is flashing red/blue your computer should find it.

My headphones will turn on or charge.


Try performing a system reset: While plugging in the AC charger, hold the power/pair button. The headphones will show a solid red or blue light when they have been successfully reset. If it's still giving you problems, contact your retailer for warranty replacement (1 year warranty) or call Plantronics at 800-544-4660 x5 x5538 for warranty service.

I have my backbeat 903 synced to my ps3 and phone how do i switch to my phone when i leave the house and back to the ps3 when i want to use it in gaming


Multipoint is a new development in Bluetooth technology that allows your headset to be connected to two Bluetooth devices at the same time. When a call comes in, the Bluetooth headset knows which handset is ringing and will connect to the phone automatically. Multipoint can benefit most Bluetooth Headset users.
