Well the CB you have should not cycle through channels like that for sure. It is not a progressive scan. Try messing with the channel 9/normal switch again. In rare occasions that switch will **** to the side just a tad. there is a PCB board inside that is responsible for the channels responding to the channel as the channel knob is turned. This board could be going haywire. If fooling with that switch does not take care of the issue then I would contact the person you got the Midland from immediately and have them get you one that works properly.
there is no transmission on FM because CB is at 26 to 27Mhz on the AM Band and as with your car radio FM starts around 88Mhz. the other reason is tha one one modulates amplatude(AM) slightly to cary the signal, FM modulates the frequincy slightly to carry the transmission.
if you want to talk on FM you might want to become a Amateur "Ham" Radio Operator.
You should be able to. It sounds like your radio is hooked up in a manner that disconnects it from ALL the power once the ignition is turned off. This causes the radio to return to channel 9 by default program when powered on again.
Try connecting the radio hotwire to the fusebox at the factory am/fm radio fuse junction (be sure the amps for the cb + the am/fm don't exceed the rating for the fuse). This should keep power supplied to the radio even with the engine off, and it should remain tuned to channel one every time you turn it on.
Hi larry, That is a normal ch 9 default on electronic channel changers. Small midlands/cobras also do that. Try taking the red/hot power wire loose and attaching it to a power source that is hot all the time. That way there will be power going to the radio with the key shut off and it should retain the last channel you were on. Hope this is what you were looking for, let us know,, Mechanic
