Question about Uniden PC68XL (40 Channels) 2-Way Radio

2 Answers

I am new to the world of cb radio and was very excited when I bought a uniden pc68xl for thirty bucks. I installed I have the ground and the positive post on my battery I've got a ten foot coaxial cable nd an 1 foot antenna on the bed of my pickup I've been told my whip is to small. But its odd because I'm not even getting static. I've adjust rf gains back and forth and still have had no luck. Power kicks on. All knobs and dislay features work. When ever I key up the mic I get one click and that's it. Any ideas or know what's wrong with it please let me know I'm kinda pissed about my new shiny $30 brick I just bought.

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

How do you calibrate a uniden pc68xl which has a built in swr meter but no calibration button?


That is not a built in SWR meter. The meter on that unit only measures S which is signal strength and relative transmit power.

Non grnd steel antena


I assume your coax is not hooked up properly or you have some kink of a short in your antenna connection ( thats if your cb is working properly ) Radio Shacks Information that suggested that the 102" whip is the perfect antenna is their opion only as I prefer to recommend a full wave antenna system to my customers, but I do assure you, the 102" whip does work well if it's properly installed. I have found the main problem in the 102" whip installation is when the center hole is cut to install the antenna, it's not cut big enough, which grounds the antenna. It's not suppose to be grounded in any fashion to the automible chassis. The ground of this antenna comes from the 3 screws mounted around the outside of the antenna mount. Check that for sure. If you can't correct the problem. write me back at this web sight of direct at wyoed1@aol.com. Good Luck
