To use a freq counter on SSB, use a 1Khz oscillator in front of the mic. Your freq will now show AM chan freq + 1Khz USB or AM freq - 1Khz LSB (eg, 27.185+1Khz=27.186 USB, 27.184 LSB). Always worked for me :)

Re: connex 3300 hp
U mean on sideband? Frequency counter only useful on other than sideband operation. This does not mean the carrier insertion osc. is on frequency. If it needs adjustment, your voice will sound high/ low on transmit. Incoming signals will sound right after adjusting the osc.

This site does not allow a big enough spot to upload a diagram that would be beneficial for this purpose so I had to upload it off site. Since this radio is often converted to run on 11 meter (CB frequencies) the diagram I uploaded corresponds with the frequencies after conversion.
On the Connex radio's the band "HI/LOW" switch determine the band you are on in relation to the knob. If you want the original, stock, frequency chart let me know and I can put that up as well.
If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
you will need a frequency counter, to show the channels. 1-40 and the others are allocated as frequencies. there are lists available showing ch1 band A is ??? so forth. there shouldn't be uppers or lower on it its just a AM/FM only radio NO SSB.
and these ARE NOT AMATEUR / HAM radios!!!!!!! these are EXPORTS...
Have you herd it off freq? Do you have a freq counter? How do you know that the person that told you it sounds off freq don't have their receive off freq?
if its on a freq counter, and shows not off freq, then the radio is not off freq. There is some other problem.. Or no problem because if it is just some one else saying it, maybe they are just too picky.
Things that could cause your audio to change. If its in your mobile, diving around will make your audio sound different to people. Antenna or feed line problems. If there is a problem with your antenna or feed line, it could make your audio sound bad or off to some one else.
Also, if this unit has been modded, has the clarifier been unlocked? if so that will change your TX freq.
If the unit is new and nothing has been done to it, there should be no reason why it is off freq unless some one has done something to it.
I am guessing that you are talking about getting it to talk on the FCC Citizens band. I am not too firmiliar with connex, but this will work with any radio with expaned channels.
Usually you use a frequency counter to see what frequency you are on when you are playing with the bands.If you do not have a frequency counter you can find the CB this way.
If its in a mobile, or you are not really far from a highway where big rigs travel, you can flip to channel 19 on the channel sellector then flip through the bands checking each time to see if you are on the CB 19. When you start to hear truckers or you get a radio check from a trucker your on CB 19. You can always ask the person, "this is 19 right"?
