Question about Midland 1001Z 40-Channels Base CB Radio

"squeak" when transmitting

Everytime I transmit with my Midland, there's like a squeak over my voice, like "squueeeeeee" everytime I try to talk. My friend just got the same radio and has the same problem but worse. Sometimes I can't hear a word he says because of this noise. A trucker said to adjust the gain, but there is no gain on this radio. For some reason, I think it has to do with the mic because it only occurs when trasmitting, but then again it could have to do with some kind of interference in my car. I got my Midland-1001z from Amazon with an Antenna from there too: http://www.amazon.com/Cobra-HG-A1000-High-Antenna/dp/B00005N5X1/ref=pd_bxgy_e_text_b/104-3645925-0878335?ie=UTF8&qid=1182517020&sr=8-1 . Got the one that everyone says they don't want, the A1000. It could be this antenna, considering we both have the same equipment, (CB kit and Antenna). If anyone has any insight into this problem, please help! Thanks!

First off, are you using the stock Midland mic, or are you using a new mic. Midland mics are wired different than Cobra and Uniden Mics. You can check this by reading between the pins on the 4 pin connector with a meter. Check for continuity between pins 1 & 3 for Cobra and Pinss 2 & 4 for Midland while pressing the mic switch. To change between the two configurations, swap pins 1 & 2, and 3 & 4.

By the way, the only relation between the length of coax and swr is just what the reading you see on an inline swr meter. You can only adjust the actual swr by adjusting the antenna itself. If you need instructions for setting your swr, lmk and I will post them.

Make sure you have a good ground for the radio and antenna. How long is the antenna coax if a little to long and you have extra what did you do with it coil it if so uncoil it and lay it out try it. If no luck I would shorten the coax and recheck your SWR.

When my wife and I travel in different cars we like to use the CB. She uses the handheld, I have a CB in my truck. When transmitting I know she is talking but it is all garbled. She hears me fine.

who is transmitting if it is someone else and you are hearing garbled it could be because they are using single side band on their A.M. CB radio .which your radio cannot detect.

My Midland walkie talkie quits transmitting about 3 seconds after I start transmitting

It is more likely a power issue. PTT switches do not normally cause a short circuit. Check the batteries, swap the batteries and see if that helps. Radios take a great deal more power to transmit than turn on or receive. If not the battery, try a low voltage battery, such as a cordless phone battery. If it still occurs, check your warrany and send it back to the factory.

How can i modify the midland 75-822 for more channels?

Modding your CB for more channels puts the radio into Ham bands which you need a license to transmit on, also modding a CB violates FCC part 95 rules and is therefor illegal to transmit with and the hams report most illegal transmitting on there band
