Question about Midland Amateur&Consumer Radio Replacement Batteries: 70B-75.....1400 mAh 7.2V NiCD

1 Answer

My son has a firetruck powered by one of your 12 volt batteries and we have looked for a new one at Toys R Us and Walmart for a replacement and neither carry them. I just looked on your several websites that carry your products but none that have replacement batteries to purchase. Can you ship us one or tell me where I can find one? Thank You. Mrs. Dee Cote

    Thanks Pat, but I thought you were a company with Safety 1st, whom thats who they told me the email was for me to contact them. Sorry. There is no battery number that I can see on this one, except for mfg date, saying its a 12volt, and the company that made it which is safety 1st. Thanks for trying anyway.

Mr. Cote this website does not supply batteries or other equipment to my knowledge. I am guessing that the battery you have is a small 12v gel cell or lead acid battery. if this is the case please give me the battery number ansd I will do my best to locate a battery for you.

    I don't know if this will help you, but try this web site for your battery http://www.powerstream.com/12v-index.htm. If this site does not help you then please give me the diminsions of the battery and the amp hour rating of the battery. I'll do my best to find it for you.

I have the yaesu ft990, the problem is when turning the power switch one, the radio goes dim, all lights flash, and gives of a load buzz, but if i keep turning on and off, it will power up properly.


odd issue. It sounds like the power supply is not working correctly. The noise must be the power supply either powering on or issuing a noise through the speaker. Dim lights add to my suspicion. Take the housing off and check all connections are tight. Unplug it from the wall first. Is using a battery backup, unplug that too. The easiest test is to take another power supply and wire it in the place of the internal one. Make certain you have one large enough (enough amps) or use a 12 volt battery. If it powers up fine from either the new power supply or battery it IS your power supply.

How do I hardwire this unit for an in home use installation?


You would need to have a stable 12 volt DC power supply that plugs into a 120 VAC outlet. You can google these, and they come in quite a few varieties. The most expensive are the variable voltage "lab grade" ones, then the bench grade fixed voltage variety, and then the cheap consumer grade 12 volt 1 or 2 amp device designed for CB's and small 12 volt devices. But this will not work, because you are transmitting and could be putting out 40 or 50 watts with that thing. So you will need a good 10 amp to 20 amp dedicated transceiver power supply, unless you just plan on receiving in which case you only need a couple of amps and the cheapie will do. It's always better to have more amperage in a power supply. You then need to think about issues like back-up power with a gel cell 12 volt battery, which also would allow you to use the cheapie supply, because you would have plenty of current to XMIT from the battery. Schematic shows a very basic 12v - 30 amp supply. Good luck!

That is about the nominal full-charge voltage on that battery pack. If the radio works, use it, let the battery run mostly down and recharge it. The FT-60 is a great radio, and mine shows between 7.4 and 7.8V with a fully charged battery, so yours is probably OK.

I bought a new battery (FNB-RG-67LI) that arrived with 7.5 volts. I installed to the radio and conected to the ac outlet. After 12 hours charging is in 7.6 volts.


That may be a decent nominal voltage for the first charge. Use the radio until the battery is low and then recharge for another 12-hour cycle. That battery pack is notorious for not taking a full charge first time it's charged up.

Xtl head shows "maintenance mode" "remote device" is it not programmed? Also is control head wiring red 12 volt and yellow ign.?


Hello,

The red wire on the remote head should go to the battery (with a fuse inline) the yellow wire should go to a switched 12 volt source (with a fuse).
The XTL radio is in need of correct programing, With out looking at the codeplug I would say that the option for remote head was not checked.

Hope this helps, Bill

Charger should be able to power the radio at 'EL' level, if NOTHNG happens, I'd say charger is on the blink.

2-way radio causing voltage to spike


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your described problem indicates that the RF from the Motorola is being received by the electronic regulator of the alternator and is erroneously factored in as sensor/triggers. Simply stated, the RF causes the regulator transistor to conduct more allowing higher voltage output. There could possibly be two ways of addressing the issue: regulator/alternator side and/or the Motorola side. Things that you could try:
  • shunt a reverse protection diode across the output of the alternator to the ground;
  • install filter condensers on all the wires leading to and from the alternator;
  • wire a ground strap (not a ground wire) from the firetruck's - terminal of the battery to the alternator housing;
  • check/improve (lower down) the SWR of the antenna;
  • if you are using a magnetically mounted antenna, replace with a gutter mount or similar mounting brackets;
  • wire a ground strap (not a ground wire) from the antenna mount to the radio to the body of the firetruck to the alternator to the - terminal of the battery.
A ground strap is a flattened braided electrical wire unlike the common stranded auto electrical wire.

Pls post back results. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Batteries won't charge on new cobra 2VP 270 radios


If radios are brand new then I would take them back to the store for warranty exchange. The other opton is to vist a local radio service center and ask the tech to jump the battery. if the battery falls below a certain voltage it might need a quick jump sart from a power supply with a higher voltage normally 12 volts works well...

Cobra Model HH35 radio dummy batteries


Normal AA batteries are 1.5 Volts each. The battery compartment on the HH35 holds 10 Batteries. If regular batteries are used they must be configured to a 12 Volt output. Thus the Dummy (Blank) is used to Make 8 X 1.5V=12 Volts.

If you use NiMH or Nicd which are rated at 1.2 Volts 10 X 1.2 =12 Volts.
