Question about Connex 3300 240-Channels Base CB Radio

1 Answer

Loose hot wire

The ground pin on my radio was pushed almost all the way in. When I attempted to push it out the hot came out of the circuit board. I can't tell wich hole it goes back in so I can solder it. Can anyone give me a number on the board?

    Thanx, I did that but ended up taking to the cb shop because it wouldn't get out like it was supposed to and then stopped receiving. Ended up buying a Northstar pushing about 48 watts for 100.00 bucks. CB tech still has my connex.What do you think of the new cobra blue tooth? Thanx, Rick.

I do not have a Connex with me on the road, but if you would email me this question, I will look at one when I get home in a couple days and I will email you back as well as post it here, unless someone else can help you before I make it back to Texas.

    I have opened up a connex 3300hp. The power wire is inserted in an unnumbered hole. It is between D91 and D93. On newer radios, the hole has a white shaded circle around it. It looks like the whole that the ground goes in, just it is not marked. I took 2 pics, but they are kinda blurry. My camera doesn't take up close pics that well. The pics files are too big to insert here. If I resize them, You probably would not be able to see them. If you send me an email, I can send them to you.

    I tried to insert the pics here, but that option is not working. I uploaded them to my photobucket, and here are the links to both of them.

    Thats cool. Those Northstar radios are pretty good. That is a good buy for $100. They don't produce Northstar anymore.

    As for the Bluetooth Cobra, I have not messed with on in person, but the do sound like they are going to be pretty cool.

I need a schematic for a LT2 echo board to install in my president grant PC-409AB

break audio line. J2 input goes to mic pin J1output to radio.
(leave the shielded ground wires disconnected. on audio)
Power use a 1k ohm resistor from 12v dc on pwr switch.
Ground run the ground wire to board ground
test and set echo level.
this will work for any radio. if the echo needs 12v instead of 8v remove the 1k resistor and just use a 1n4001 diode on the power wires . some models require 12v some are 5-8volts.

How do you retrofit a 4 pin D104 to a 2 pin model?

A two pin does not use a Push To Talk circuit so one wire you want is the Audio wire and the other is the ground wire.

I have a tti cb radio but the wires have come away from the mic but i dont know what colours go to what number can you help

one should be a ground. look at the board were the wire is.. and its obvious that its a ground pin 1. then should have 3 remaining. one will be tx.. touch the others to ground to see which one makes it tx.. theres your pin 3 tx.. on a galaxy pin 4 is not used. thats rx pin4 cobra radios would have a increase in rx audio when this is connected to grnd. the last would be audio. once you find grnd and tx. reconnect mic and put to pin 2 audio. the last 2 wires that gives it audio..

Does the roger beep come with instructions? It can vary between beep boards.

Typically it gets installed inline with the mic jack.

There is a wire or pin on the board where the tx wire, and the rx wires go.These wires get disconnected from the mic jack, then a wire goes to the tx pin. Then there is an audio wire that gets connected to the audio wire of the mic jack. Then the black wire to ground, and the red wire to switched 12v right off the power switch.

Here is a schematic of the board connected to the mic jack so you know what pin is what.

Again, I would need to know what roger beep board you would like to install.

I need a wiring diagram for the courier Centurion cb mic, it has a phono jack pin tip .

The center of the mic pin is your hot, and the outside is the ground. On the mic, the white wire is your hot Audio, and the shield is the ground.

Hope this helps,

How do you wire atrb-x2 echo board in a cobra 29 cb i was told the white wire inside the radio is the audio wire mine does not have awhite wire on the mic con. on the inside

don't worry about wire colors. pin 1 is ground. some mic's need two wires for ground depending on the PTT switch used. pin 2 audio. pin 3 TX pin 4 RX.. thats all there is too it. once you know the pins all radios are easy. galaxy/connex/genlee same pin outs except pin4 isnt' needed for RX but can be used for 9v dc to power micropohnes.

Wiring is broke on 4 pin mike plug

O.K. Jeff
The shield which is on #1 should be wrapped around another wire the wire it's wrapped around is your audio wire that will go on #2 pin then you take the remaining two wires and put one on #3 and one on #4 and plug the mic in if the radio keys up without pushing the button then you need to switch #3 and #4 if it does'nt and it keys up when you push the button all is good again.Good luck......Dan

check SWR's check to make sure ALL coax connectors are tight. and if still doing it. may be loose connection in board. but the export style radios go crazy like that when coax is loose or have bad grounds. due to there floating ground circuit design. there not the same as a cobra were its case is ground.
