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 own a 3 year old Husqvarna 2348 riding mower. Mid way in mowing I turned off the mower and refilled the gas tank. When I tried to start the mower, there was a hight pitched "whirling" sound...

At first glance it sounds like starter is not engaging just spinning they usually don not give us a warning they just go at the wrong place and time. Take it off and bench test it to make sure or take it to your local repair shop or maybe even auto zone they will test it for you. Good Luck...

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)
