Do you have receive?

99% of exports problem... the board may have loose connection on the voltage regulator.. if not may have blown the protection diode. IF you need help let me know.

Where does the noise filter go? if it goes inline with the antenna, don't use it!!! It's bad for a cb radio.

The problem is that the V73 has a very sensitive receive. It is picking up noise in the car. Most likely the smog pump, or fuel pump.

Here are a few things you can try.

First, lets make sure where the noise is getting into the radio. It will either be getting in via the power wire, or the antenna.

To find out, here is what you do.

  1. Turn the car on, and the radio on.
  2. unscrew the antenna from the back of the radio. Make sure you do not key the radio without the antenna hooked up. It will hurt the transmit section.
If when you take the antenna wire off the back of the radio, the noise goes away, then the noise is getting in via the antenna system. Solutions for this could be any of the following.
  • Bad coax or connectors. Replace the coax with new coax.
  • Antenna not ground, or poorly grounded. If its a mag mount antenna, make sure the membrane on the bottom is in tact and there is nothing in between it and the metal of the car. this is how the antenna is grounded. If its a rigid mount to the body of the car, make sure it is free of rust or paint where it is mounted.
To find out if the noise is getting in from the coax, or antenna.
  1. Hook the coax back up to the radio. The noise will be back.
  2. Disconnect the coax from the antenna if you can.
If the noise goes away, it is the antenna. Try a new antenna. If the noise doesn't go away, its most likely bad coax.

Now if when you disconnect the antenna wire, the noise is still there, then the noise is getting in through the power wire.

Here are some things you can do to get rid of the noise.

  • Connect power wire direct to the battery.
  • Twist the power wire.
  • Put a not in the power wire right at the plug.
  • Use power line noise filter. It is a ground loop filter.
Some vehicles are noisy. You can't get away from it. Even with all of the solutions you may still have some noise. It's like that in my f150 pickup. I can't completely get rid of the noise, but most of it. In my blazer, I can hear the ignition noise if I do not use the ANL. In my friends dodge, he has no noise at all. Even without the ANL on. It's amazing.

To add 10Khz to your transmit frequency:

FIXED/OFF/+10KHz SWITCH:
The left position puts the radio on
one of the three fixed channels that is selected by the channel switch
(6,19, or 21). This over-rides the channel selected by the 40 channel
knob. The right position adds 10KHz to whatever frequency you are ON.
In the middle, both features are OFF.

Otherwise, a radio tech would be able to retune the frequency inside the radio.

After adding 10KHz to your frequency, use the SWR control to check the SWR of your antenna.
Here's how:
SWR CAL CONTROL: Normally this switch is set to “PO”. Then,
during transmission, the meter indicates output power. To read SWR,
rotate this knob during transmission until the needle moves to the “SET”
point on the SWR scale. Then, while still transmitting, set the R.B./SWR
switch to SWR.

Ideal SWR is 1 but you'll want to be as near one as possible. An SWR of 1.6 or greater will make ineffective use of your antenna.
If in doubt, a radio tech has the required meters and tools to adjust the SWR/Tuning of your antenna.

Tip

GET YOUR BLOWN UP RADIO BACK ONLINE.


When you cant get your radio turned on. All it does is blow the fuse imeadiatlly hooking it to power. Most likely it is the (reverse polarity diode). The quick fix is to locate your diode? This diode usually is back behind a coil wound transformer on your board inside the radio and in the general area of where the possitive ans negative plug wires solder to the board! Usually it is black with a silver band around one end. If you clip it on one end or remove it this will restore your radios power. CAUTION:: When doing this ALWAYS use a dual fuse power cord . This will prevent this from happening again by blowing the fuse first. Doing this procedure will remove your thermal protection to the radio thus making it wide open to being fried for good if it ever gets hooked up backwards again. This is my reasoning for the dual fused power cord. Good luck!

The fashion for nostalgia radio with a modern sound has brought about a clutch of models from only a few manufacturers.

I have only encountered one such that was basically an in-house cabinet with bought in internals, the quality of which was probably reflected in the price and as this was from the lower price bracket the internals were from different sources and badly matched.

I know of no reason to assume other models would be substantially different because although popular they haven't sold in the high numbers that would justify purpose built internals and so the chances are an experienced audio engineer would probably recognise the circuit board as being from a popular hi-fi and be able to provide you with details.

There are two versions. A free version and a paid version. Make sure you choose the free one and you will not be charged anything. You may need to uninstall the one you have downloaded and reinstall. Do not choose PREMIUM vesion.

The short answer is no -- the difference between AM and FM is too great though some CB radios were made dual mode, like the President Veep I used to own.
Some CBs that found the way into Britain were powerful sidebanders that offered similar capabilities to unlicensed CB-ers to that official radio hams had to sit exams to enjoy. Some radio hams found it cheaper to have those top-line CBs modified for use on the 11 metre amateur band.

It would be no help to you to obtain a standard FM CB as when the UK was forced to legalise CB radio under the Treaty of Rome, they legalised it at a different frequency as the American frequency was already allocated to radio control, bleepers and other things. Special CB sets were manufactured for the UK market.

HI.... yes ....it is possible to program them in DMO, this is done in the RSS,.... so I am advised directly from inside Motorola .... but a copy of the RSS is just not available.... ... if fact Motorola seems to officially deny the D700 ever existed ... good luck in finding a solution.

Hello there! Assuming your talking about "XtremeMan SOMA BT" I'm not a fan of assumptions but... if this is the device your are referring to then here you go below. If this is not the device you are making reference to, then please respond with the model number and make/brand of the device. Thanks for your visit and good luck.
1. With the unit on or off, plug the included cable
from the USB jack on your computer to the micro
USB jack v on this unit. While charging, the
battery level will be shown by the LED indicators
with the current level LED blinking. When all
the LED indicators light solid, then the unit
is fully charged.
2. If the power level is less than 10%, the left-most
LED indicator will start blinking, which means
that the Soma BT needs to be charged.
Using the Soma BT with a Bluetooth Device
1. Turn on the unit as shown above.
2. Press and hold the Bluetooth button U for
approximately three seconds until a beep
sounds and the right-most LED starts blinking.
3. Within five minutes, select Soma BT from the
Bluetooth List on the external device. See
external device's owner's manual for details.
When paired successfully, the Soma BT will beep
twice and the right-most LED will light

The meter is out of range! Move the meter closer to the main box.
