How to wire a audio mixer deck to a radio tranceiver

I'm not sure if you want it wired to the input or output. You can connect the output of the transceiver(if it accepts an earphone plug) to the the input of the mixer using plugs you can buy form Radio Shack or MCM electronics on line.

What band position do i need to talk on cb channels

Here's a handy, printable frequency chart for this radio. Band "E" contains the Citizen's Band Frequencies. "Band E" in "AM mode" is the only legal settings to transmit this radio in the USA.

Important: Several other "settings" may also give the FCC to inquire about your operation if caught. Additionally, this radio is an "Export" model - meaning not intended for sale in the USA. The extra frequencies, FM mode and some other features along with the 8 watt transmit power ability; all contribute to a radio that is not permitted to be sold or used on these frequencies in the USA.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

Bought a connex 330 hp that has has been modified to operate on citizen band but does not stay on frequ.

This is a channelized Amateur Radio Service transceiver designed for use in the 28Mhz / 10 meter band. Someone "hacked" it to transmit in the 27 Mhz / 11 meter Citizens Band. This modification has voided the Connex warranty (if it was still covered). There is little the end user can do to "fix" this radio. The components on the circuit board are very small, and manipulation requires special tools, anti-static precautions and specialized test equipment to adjust and verify correct operation.

I believe that there is an issue with the PLL circuit used for tuning. The only way to get this radio working properly is to bring it to a licensed radio repair shop - as they have the tools and skills to do the work correctly.

If you do not already know, modification of any radio to work in CB frequencies and any other it was not designed to work in before; is illegal in the US (and other places too most likely). Assuming you're in the US; all radios are "Type Accepted" by the FCC before they can be sold. Police radios in Public Safety Services can not be used on Ham frequencies in Amateur Radio Services, and vice-versa. This applies to all radios in all the different radio services, unless the radio carries "Type Acceptance" for more than one service. Furthermore, this radio puts out 2.5 times the legal limit (even before "peaking") for transmitters in the Citizen's Band Service. The rules are clear, and they come with stiff fines and / or prison if caught. A radio operating out of its intended service can cause problems far beyond what the operator is aware of - and any party adversely affected would likely call authorities for relief. Of course, if you paid to have this modification done, you were probably told all of this ahead of time - but there's also a chance that you were not.

I would not operate this radio until it is checked out. Obtaining an Amateur Radio Operator's (or "ham") license is easier than ever now. You do not need to learn morse code. For more information about becoming a ham, visit the ARRL licensing pages.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Ihave an old icom icm- 55 marine radio what ariel do i need and do i need to swr the ariel will a cb ariel work basically what do i need to do to get it working

All marine VHF radios must be licensed. A marine radio station must also have a call-sign allocated to the vessel it is installed in. Shore based stations can also be licensed but only where they are involved in marine based activities e.g Yacht Clubs, Marinas, Harbour Masters, Rescue Services etc.
In the UK ships radio licences can be obtained from Ofcom. They are free for non-commercial users.
The user must also have a Marine VHF Radio operators certificate. This requires taking an exam. In the UK contact the Royal Yachting Association for a copy of the syllabus and local examiners.
More information about the licensing rules, courses and exams can be found here.
The ICOM ICM55 is a good radio set and can still be used in an existing (marine) installation but it does not meet the standards for new installations as it does not have DSC (digital selective calling) capabilities - which all new fixed sets must now have. It is therefore very unlikely that you will be able to get a licence to install one.
To get it working you will need a proper marine band VHF aerial which operates in the frequency range 156-MHz. They usually come with cable attached but if a longer cable is needed, or the aerial is not cabled in the first place, use flexible 75 ohm co-axial cable with a copper core and braid/foil screen. Use proper aerial connectors (type F or BC are most commonly used and can be obtained from most good electronic component suppliers more cheaply than from a boat chandlers. Do not use push-fit TV aerial plugs)
Citizens Band radio works on the much lower frequency MHz band and therefore a CB aerial will not work with a marine VHF radio set. Please see this Wikipedia article for more information

What frequency do these run?? am or fm??

CB or citizen's band is in the 27 MHZ band. Its 40 channels long, AM typically, and on some models side band, or SSB.

It is only legal in the US to have a radio that operates in the 27 MHZ band on the designated 40 channels using AM or single side band only.

The MCB-30 is an AM only radio.
