echo mic works just as good and if you should ever sell the radio it won't have echo installed because a lot of people don't like it.

buy a small amp maybe 75 to 100 watts .hook them up and you will be smokin.

first you need a watt meter, then a service manual. people think that the more power you have the better the radio. yeah it sounds great but not over the space of 40 channels , and you can go up itno the amature band and wipe them out also and the lower 40 will also be splashed. Thats why if you want it done good take it to someone that knows what they are doing.

There are microphones with built-in amplifiers that can be purchased to increase modulation on rigs that do not have internal adjustments for microphone amplitude. Another approach is to try and find the service manual for your radio and see if it has procedures for setting the modulation.

get another that has the same specs and change them around. see what happens?

Midland... | Answered on Nov 22, 2014

power level will not matter. Some headsets need to be inserted when the radio is on. Others when it is off. Also, check the radio programming to be certain VOX is enabled.

What model Midland do you have? Someone may be familiar with your model.

Midland Radio... | Answered on Oct 15, 2014

Yikes- Sounds like it's time for factory servicing! Hopefully, they still support that model. If not you'll probably have to buy a new one.

open it up and look at your wiring then connect you power wire as you see it.Oh ,see the little black diode near where those wires come in,thats your reverse polarity diode. If your going to burn anything that it.

there is definatly a problem here. Could be a crack in the PCB ,a cold solder joint , a loose wire , antenna SWR to high to much voltage going into the radio from the power amp. Take it to a tech to find out whats wrong,he can fix it faster then I can tell you how to concidering I don't have the set in front of me.

Midland... | Answered on Sep 26, 2014

you cannot do it unless you have the proper equipment.

Midland 1001Z... | Answered on Sep 26, 2014

could be a cold solder joint in the mic or the radio itself.

Midland 77-099... | Answered on Sep 26, 2014

one wire is ground,one wire is tx one wire is rx,so now all you have to do is find which wire goes where. do you have a multi meter? put one end into the antenna plug on the radio now put you meter on sound for an ohms reading and touch the pins .If the pin makes a loud clear sound thats your ground now the rest is trial and error. When you finally get it connected write down the wiring so you can have it at a future date.

amps like the smaller wattage so they can push out more power but some amps like the 3 watt figure so they can push out more power. go to www.cbtricks.com and look up your radio. the schematic is there but I don't remember if there is a service manual for it.
