Offhand, pls try:

  • If the high pitch sound (feedback) occurs during the receive, then you need to check the switch inside the microphone and verify that the audio line is not directly connected mic element wire; it should pass through the switch. Alternately, it may be the switch that is shorted. If you are using a power mic, you may have to lower the settings a bit or decrease the gain;
  • If the feedback occurs during transmit, you need to check the TX/RX regulator and switching circuitry. In some cases this would also be true if you are using a linear amp and the grounding is not adequate and/or the SWR relatively high.
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 can transmit & receive all channels but when i try to transmit on 40 i get a loud pitch on speaker

Sounds like the VCO is out of range on the high end of the frequency range which causes the synthesizer to go out of lock on channel 40. If you tweak the VCO coil slightly it might lock again. Make sure it still works on channel 1 after you have tweaked the VCO coil.

I need to know what knobs turn which way and what buttons need to be on

Volume/Squelch control: As desired
ETone: Sets the sound of the echo as desired
MicGain/RF Gain control: Normally, leave fully clockwise
Band Switch: for CB, turn all way to left (a/e)
Mode Switch: Selects how you modulate the radio. Normally, you will operate on AM, USB or LSB.
Fine/Coarse control: Changes the frequency you operate on. Normally, set so the frequency counter reading ends in 5. (center slot of the channel).
RB: Roger beep. Turn on or off as desired.
NB/ANL: Noise limiters. Leave on.
Frequency Counter: Turns counter lights on and off.
+10 KHZ: Allows you to get the channels missed by the Channel knob. Normally, leave off.
Power: Selects either high or low transmitter power setting.
Band: Selects band of operation. Low (A-D) or High (E-F)

1991 Ford 350 truck, in dash cassette player high pitch noise

Hi rayc

sounds like the motor that pulls the tape mechanism is probably about to give problems and is getting electronically noisy. The cb may need to hooked up some where else to power so you get away from dirty power as well as maybe move the cb farther away from the tape player. hope this helps.

Cb radio does not transmite

You might be having a dead key problem. Do you run a power mic? if so check the battery in it if you dont run a power mic then your have RF gain problems. Take it to a local cb/truck stop and get them to look at it.

You didnt open it up and mess with it did you?
