You need to adjust your RF gain down a bit, and calibrate the SWR's. The RF gain is for receiving and what's happening is that you have your RF gain too high, so the closer you are the more he's going to blast through, making it hard to understand him. You shouldn't have to take them down very far in order to correct it. If you find that you're not receiving at a further distance, then simply bring it back up a bit. You can usually get it set where you receive pretty good at any distance, however, if you can't get it to set right, then you may need to adjust it slightly as you ride.

Hi I have a 2002 goldwing GL1800 I put a headset in my helmet and everything works but the cb when I pull the triger to talk the music cuts out and I cant here my mate and he cant here me


check the switch that is operated when you pull the trigger for the cb
it may be possible that the switch is cutting of the radio but not connecting to the cb power wire
just a thought

Galaxy dx959 will not receive. Speaker is working. S meter is showing incoming signal.


the over power doides may be blown. you should start there .they should be marked D-1 and D-2. you may want to replace them with diodes of a higher rating.

Why dont these reach very far??? i got an Pyramid 20cb antenna Any good??


CB radios are limited to 4 watts input to the 'final'. CB is suppose to be 'line of sight' or about 20 miles. Variables include where you are using the radio ... in the city or in the country ... signal is blocked by buildings and other environmental conditions. A full wave is 36 feet ... is your antenna some number that will multiply to 36 feet? 1/2 wave antenna = 18 feet ... max allowed in the US ... max hight is 20 feet above the mount. If you have an 'old' CB, they were limited to 5 watts to the final. On a good night, one might talk 100 miles away ... but is of course not legal.

How far can I get this thing to reach,and how ?


With a good antenna, and the antenna tuned for best SWR, about 8 miles from mobile to mobile, and about 12 miles from mobile to base radio.

You can modify the radio and turn up the power, it will get you more range, and make the radio sound louder, but you will still be limited, because radio is line of sight. Hills and structures block RF signals. you go down a hill, you will loose distance.

With a cobra 29 that has been tuned up sitting on a hill about 1400 feet above sea level, I was able to talk to some one on a base radio about 50 miles away with out my amp on. I also have a very very good antenna. not something you normally see either.

With a clear on blocked line from antenna to antenna, you can talk really far on a stock radio. There is a saying for CB antenna's. "Height is might."

There are a lot of things that effect the distance a CB can reach.

If there is Skip active, you can possibly talk thousands of miles with a stock radio. Skip is when the ionosphere becomes charged by solar energy form a solar flair and causes the radio waves to bounce off them, making it seem like you have a straight line of sight to places that would normally be blocked by the natural curvature of the earth.

Then there are Linear amplifiers. They increase the power of the signal of the radio. They will increase the output range, but then you may be talking to people that don't have an amp, and that you will not be able to hear them because they do not have enough power to reach you.

So, get a really good antenna. Make sure it is tuned for the lowest possible SWR. Refer to the manual that came with your radio on how to find out your SWR, and how to lower it. There will also be instructions on how to tune the antenna that came with the antenna. Then bring the radio to a CB shop or a CB tech and have them tune it up. It will cost about $30.

With my radio barefoot, and can normally talk around 30 miles or more without worrying about hills and obstructions. (Barefoot means, without the amp on)

I Cant Pick Up Any Signals On my Cobra 25 LTD 40-Channels Base CB Radio all i hear is nothing. no truckers saying stuff. i just get white noise i do have an antenna. it is a tv antenna w/ bunny ears :) i...


Your problem is probably the rabbit ears. They are for tv in the 54+
Mhz and CB is 27 Mhz. For simplicity, go to Radio Shack and get a back of the radio indoor antenna. They run under $20. If you want to get more; try a roof antenna or a 1/2 wave cb marine antenna outside.
Hope it helps.3
