Question about Maxon MCB-30 40-Channels Base CB Radio

Open Question

Maxon MCB 30

I bought this already converted to work with a Honda Goldwing 1500's intercom system. The problem is it cancels the ear phones when the push to talk button is pressed. I would like it not to cancel the headset. Is this possible?

    Most two way radios are setup to cut off the speaker (internal or external) when the radio is transmitting.  Are you looking to continue to receive intercom traffic from the passenger while transmitting on the CB?

Hello lummox30,

Check you mic first to see if it is indeed working. Then if it is the below advice is applicable.
It sounds as if your TX audio amplifiers might be malfunctioning or the TCXO might be bad. If you have a background in Electronics I would suggest that you open up the unit and using a dummy load on the antenna check the two TX audio amps to see if when you key the mic and speak into it the amplifiers are amplifying your voice and sending it to the modulator. If the problem is not amps or the filters in between the amps, the modulator and the VCO buffer are suspect. If the TCXO is being modulated I would check the PPL IC and the Drive amp to see if the modulated signal is getting through. The last two checks I would perform are on the final amp and the TX switch prior to the antenna jack.

If you do not have a background in electronics, still check your mic, but the rest of the above advice can be done by a qualified Radio Technician.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

Maxon wire fuses


If a inline fuse in a holder the old one will aside from length have the amperage printed on it---very few mobile radios use larger than a 3 amp fuse-----look on metal ends of old fuse if have it for markings like 3ag 3 250---3AG is size, 3 is 3 amp, 250 is max working voltage (120 is fine).

What fuse does my maxon mcb-30 cb take


12 volt 2 amp kinds or any 0.5 amps even. You want it to blow fast to save radio from damage. So, any type 0.1 amp to 1 amp or 2 even. It doesn't matter; but a fast blowing one will save radio from damage later on.

Meter Shows Signal, no noise


when you have no RX or TX at the same time, that most often means the pre-driver audio transistor is bad.
