I had this problem and after 7 days I've heard nothing back from LaCrosse. Problem appears to be a non-functioning magnetic reed switch inside the circuitry housing. It's easy to remove the cover with a tiny phillips screwdriver (mind the small and delicate gasket/o-ring). Then the circuit board is held in with two more tiny philips screws at the bottom of the housing. Removing and replacing the switch will require a low-wattage soldering pencil. I used a Standex-Meder part number ORD228VL-1015 from Digi-Key. Only a couple $, cheap, fast shipping. It appears to be an EXACT replacement.

Battery's are in correctly, still no transmit rain

It is possible that there is a thin film of dirt, oil, wax, on the contacts of the unit and also the batteries. I have seen this happen in the past. Try taking a Q-TIP and dipping it into some alcohol and wiping the batteries at each end along with the unit contact points. Let all contacts dry, and replace them into the unit without touching the ends. What do you have to lose? Good Luck Friend.

How to measure rain fall when your rain gauge overflows

Most rain gauges that you will make at home will only measure up to one inch of rain fall. The problem with this is that if you live in a place where you will get more than one inch of rain your measurement if taken incorrectly will be very skewed. If your rain gauge has been constructed correctly you should have a fail safe in place.

When you construct a rain gauge you should have a measuring tube inside of an over flow tube. The meausuring tube will hold about one inch of rain fall, but when more rain falls the inside tube will overflow into the outer tube. To measure the excess rain fall you will follow a few simple steps.

Start by reading the inner tube of the rain gauge and then carefully empty the tube. Make sure that you don't pour out the water that has overflowed into the outer tube.

Once all the water for the measuring tube has been emptied carefully pour the excess rain water into the measuring tube. To get the most accurate reading try your best to not spill any water out, you can pour the water over a bucket to make sure that if you do spill any out you will catch it and be able to measure accurately.

If there is a lot of overflow you might want to measure a little bit of overflow at a time to get an accurate read. As you measure, write down the measurements and when you finish add up the values to get the reading.

The readings are done in inches so you have a reading that is 1.00 and has an overflow that measures up to .50 then the total read out will 1.50 inches.

Every time I press the talk button the radios show low battery icon and I'm not able to transmit on either radio. How can I rectify this problem?


Are you SURE that your batteries are up to snuff? I.E. when they have a light current load on them they are ok but as soon as you try to increase that current load they die off quickly. With two-way radios, the actual current drain depends on whether you are transmitting or in standby (receive) mode. Transmitting requires significantly more current than standby mode. So, I would look at what kind of batteries you are using. If they are a good name brand alkaline, check to see if they measure close to 1.5 volts with a voltmeter or check them with a battery tester to ensure they are good. If they are ni-cad or ni-mh rechargeable batteries, make sure they are rated at least 1200 mah (milliamp hour). I use Sanyo eneloop rechargeable batteries. They last a long time for me. One other thing, make sure your battery compartment is clean and there is no corrosion on the contacts the batteries are placed into.

Hope this helps,

How many watts is a tristar 120?

A Tristar CB radio cannot legally exceed 4 watts of transmitting power.
You can add anetnnas in order to increas the "gain" to have the equivalent of much more transmit power.

Microphones aren't measured in watts.
The "impedence" (amount of resistance) is the important measure.

Hi there i have a strange icon in one of my radios

The icon you are describing is the "roger beep" icon. It would not be the reason your radio is not transmitting. Most likely your programming has been changed. Here is a link to the manual where you can read how to program the radio's frequency and interference eliminator code.

Roger Beep/Talk Confirmation Tone
When you turn on this feature, your two-way radio transmits a unique tone when you
finish transmitting. It’s like saying “Roger” or “Over” and lets others know you’re
finished talking.
• To enable Roger Beep/Talk Confirmation Tone, press and hold + (plus button) as you turn
your radio On. Now, when you release the PTT button, your set tone lets your
friends know you’re finished talking and will appear on the display.
• To disable the Talk Confirmation Tone feature, turn your radio Off and then back
On while pressing and holding the + (plus) button.
