You may have a sub-channel/privacy channel activated. Unless the person/s you are trying to talk to have the same channel and code set they will not be able to hear you. Check your manual for specific instructions on how to reset it to the default.

From the Oceanus owners manual (page 8, link below) it tells you how to choose a mounting location and complete your install.

I realize this question has been around for a long while, but with the price of a new radio being so low, I can't imagine why anyone would be bothered with trying to source the part (spendy...) and try to repair the unit.

Welcome to the age of disposable electronics.

The antenna is not listed as an accessory on the Uniden web site, so your best bet is to contact their Customer Service department. You can email them by following this link:

Typically there is an inline fuse in the power cord. It is not built into the back of the unit. If access to the back is restricted, they should have cut out the fuse and installed it near the power buss that the power cord is attached to. How was it flush mounted if you don't have access to the back of the unit? It's not possible to attach the flush mount brackets without access. It's possible that the radio is held in place using sealant. If you are sure there's no way to pull the panel, try gently prying the radio out of the hole working around the edge to break the seal.

Hi,

Initially, pls check/clean your antenna, mount, coaxial cable, RF connector, power leads, grounding straps.

Based on your post description, a couple of ideas:
1. Since you receive OK, chances are the antenna/cable is good. You verify though with an SWR meter;
2. Since TX light comes on, looks like the mic, PTT and coiled cord are all OK;
3. All else works but no one can hear you, you have no power output. Use an RF wattmeter with dummy load to verify that you are pushing at least 25 watts. In the absence of a power meter, the SWR would also do or even an indication of a significant current flow to the radio ( use an inline ammeter) would indicate power.
As you will note, some specialized instruments are needed. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified communications technician. TMore often it is the finals or power pack that fails resulting in no TX. In some cases, it is either the RF diode or the power regulator that causes no TX. It may also be worth your while to do a full check over of your antenna system.

Hope this be of some help. Pls post back how things turns up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

It all depends on the location. Being VHF and not using a repeater or external antenna, the range is likely less than 10 miles. Using a repeater you might get 50 miles or more. If you are thinking long range communications, you really need an HF transceiver. VHF is essentially for local communications.
