If it isn't transmitting on CB; the final transistor may have failed and will need replacement. This is usually caused if/when the antenna's SWR was not adjusted properly when installed. Newbee radio operators usually have this problem quite often. First radio?
I think they were saying that the radio "Transmits on CB, and that it also receives the WX just fine, but that it is not receiving when it is in the AM CB mode".
If this is the case, then that sounds like a pretty funky problem. If the radio is new I would just return it.
It's not my radio it's a friends, I have some knowledge of cbs, although not to the degree most of you, (mostly learned by reading and some good people on here who have helped me),..
I did not realize the final could cause the receive issue since i had key up and tx, on the other hand the owner is a 'cover driver' and uses different trucks, he may have had one with a high swr and taken the final out,.. i'll look into that.
Thank you for your replies....
This might help narrow down the problem.
If I had to guess though, I would say first look internally at the WX/CB switch to see if there are any unsoldered connections.
If the connections on the switch look fine then I would agree with RatsoW8.
