    Thanks. Perhaps that would have been more appropriate than picking up from the cigarette lighter, but that was closer in both distance and time. Appreciate your help

Take power off the fuse for the Radio. Use the cold side. EG: the side with no power when the fuse is removed. You can use the hot side if your DB has a fuse in line. Or you can slpice into the radio power line.

CB radios are incredibly simple, any decent CB shop should be able to set you up with a power cable and show you how to use the radio.

hi first of all buying a radio for $30 rings alarm bells ! your 1ft antenna will definitely not work on cb band maybe vhf but not cb band ,secondly the solution to your problem is this Match the antenna to your rig you can purchase a fairly cheap or expencive antenna that is entirely up to you but i recommend the Wilson 1000 for mobile use you will also need to purchase a swr /power metre if you are unsure of these items get a friend or someone that knows how to install them properly .My opinion is that you have bought a faulty rig but you can try it with someone whom has a proper matching antenna this will rule out radio problem if not then you may have to get it repaired by a quilified tech.. hope you get it sorted all the best EI5GLB 73

No, T5700 radios operate on UHF FM frequencies in the 450-470 MHz range. CBs will not communicate with them.

How to install echo board in uniden pc66 cb radio


Hi,

You have to cut the microphone line and put the echo board in between. The INput of the echo board should go to the end that goes to the microphone connector, the OUTput would go to the wire that leads to the CB board.Connect also the B+ and ground. The B+ should go to the switched B+ of the radio while the negative can go to any grounded area.

Good luck and kind regards.
