Question about Midland 1001Z 40-Channels Base CB Radio
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.
