Pretty much stock (no mods I'm aware of apart from the resistor diode for the mic) Malaysia made 148, shows some wear but not terrible. Meter works, has white LED, no segments out. K40 speech processor mic. $175 shipped priority mail.
Tx is good, signal appears to be good, the audio out of the speaker is low. Rf gain all the way up, volume all the way up, it's just not very loud. All modes, tried different speakers, both in the mobile and in the house. Any ideas?
As soon as you push the scan button it instantly goes to 26.000 and stays there, can't change frequency with the buttons or channel knob, it won't scan up or down, you have to push the manual button to go back to normal operation.
I'm going to have to send it off then, I just don't have the equipment to get that far into it. If I did have the equipment I would be that much farther down the road before I realize I have no idea what I'm doing.
Just got this radio, and everybody said I was off frequency on lsb, with my primitive equipment it looks like on channel 40 (for example) AM and USB tune easily, but lsb is 27.4032 with L28 screwed all the way in. Any ideas what to look for?
Alot of people find the 2 tone beep on a Sadelta echo mic very annoying. Friend of mine has a vr9000 with a bump bump, it's pretty cool to play with, but it was installed on the squelch knob for some reason.
I've always had a thing for oddball stuff, and you don't see these all that often. Had bunches of galaxy radios so have an idea what it will and won't do. Somewhere I got the idea most of the Superstar radios were sold overseas, but I know there were probably dozens of variations and rebadged...
I always wanted one because I think they look cool, finally found one. I assume it has a 6900 board in it, but surprisingly little info on the web that I can find. This one works perfectly, looks pretty good. What's the good, bad and ugly about these?
Just acquired a decent shape cp400, I know people collect these but I don't have any first hand knowledge, whats the story on them, and value? Doest have the original mic, has an old Cobra ca50 power mic and the power cord.
It had been working really well, was thinking about selling it, and when I turned it on it had a buzzing (sort of) on keyup with the mic gain turned up, had to turn it back to about 50٪ to get rid of the noise. I thought the echo might be the issue.
I have a 2970dx, it had echo and talkback. Pulled the echo out, removed the talkback, now when you turn the raxio on its in tx mode, and none of the buttons do anything. Can't change frequency either. Does this with or without the mic connected. Does this in am mode.
Recently aquired a George, but it didn't come with the original mic, from my reading it appears the stock mic had a built in amp like a 257/deltaforce and is wired the same, can I use one if I can locate one?
