You might check your antenna locations, connections, coax and cables. Feedback is sometimes cause by two or more transmitters being too close together (or bad coax/connectors). In the case of mobile radios, this would depend on the location of the external antennas. One radio may be more sensitive than the other, or a PL (private line) code is blocking the interference on the radio which appears to not have a problem. Feedback is caused by RF (radio frequency waves) in the environment. We suggest looking for the leak, and/or repositioning the antennas to be futher apart.

Best regards.

Not talking far

Check your antenna set up and connections. Make certain all connections are tight. Have you changed anything about the antenna recently, such as location, or stinger length?

Too much feedback

Can you explain your terminology? Feedback or Standing Waves? Typically, Feedback is audio feedback through the speaker and back into the microphone of the CB or out of the external speaker into the mic. It can also be RF Feedback that is caused when the system. If it is audio feedback, it could be that someone has installed a T
"talk back" option and that's why you are getting feedback, if it's audio feedback.

External speaker no function


You have the correct external speaker connected, or a generic?

Some radios require certain external speakers to work properly, and generic speakers aren't always the solution.

Motorola 2-way radios of the model you have, may well come under this bracket.

Other than that, all I can suggest is: join yahoo group specific to your radio Make/Model, and the team there will advise you what's best for your radio, plus you can download manuals, schematics and other goodies for your radio and it's all free.

I hope That this has been of use to you.

Best regards,

My passport 250 goes into protect mode on occasion. The other night at a gig it would clip into protect as soon as I sent a signal from the mic or guitar. It works fine at home. Is the unit sensitive to...

These seem to be tempermental. I would look for radio frequency interference from nearby transmitter leaking into your guitar cable or mic cable that puts this on the ragged edge of feedback. DO NOT boost highs with the EQ... You can get supersonic feedback that you can't hear, but puts the amp into limiting. Any audio input can start the feedback. These amps are VERY hard to work on due to the packaging. A lot of people have smoked their units and then require repairing.

Motorola maratrac mobile radio A7 control head problems

Hello scooter 34 1,

Are you able to get a new mic for your radio? Because I really think the problem is in the mic. Here is a test buy a cheap replacement mic that can be used with your unit and swap it out with your current mic. 9 time out of 10 this will solve the problem. If not the problem may be with the sensor switch inside of the unit itself, the sensor switch detects when the mic is activated, it avoids the galvanic response of the metallic switch in the mic. The switch could have malfunctioned. However I repeat, that I believe the mic has malfunctioned.

I hope this helps,

Your radio is equivalent to the US version named the CDM1250 or CDM1550. The instruction manual for these radios is available on CD from most Motorola dealers.
