    Good day -

    Ranger RCI-2970DX and problem, there is no Roger Beep sound on the end of transmission... what would be the problem ?
    Any hint would be very apreciated.

    Also - it is working on USB and LSB .... the AM is affected the most, ... no beep sound at all....

    Thank you.

    It could be something as simple as a dirty button contact. Or a component failure.
    If you are comfortable with using a multimeter, you can download the schematic from
    CBTricks and follow the circuit for the roger beep.
    Also, if the radio has been modded in any way, someone might have used the button for the roger beep for something else.
    Personally, I'm not a fan of roger beeps. So, I wouldn't worry about it if that is all that is wrong.
    Good luck and hope you get ti fixed.

    The general consensus seems to indicate roger beeps are not well liked. What about a little bit of reverb?

    If you bought a new car you would want the horn to work now wouldn't you?

    I would give this guy the answer about his issue if I knew what was wrong but telling him he shouldn't use a function of the radio that came as a factory function is not right.

    It's his call to use it.

    He is going to find a bunch of people including myself ignore roger beep people. Roger beeps are popular in Mexico....what more needs to be said.

    What needs to be said! he did not come here for opinions or judgement, he came for help.

    I at least try talking to the mexican skip to see if I can get them to stop using their beepers but get no replies in English but I don't let my prejudices get in my way of bettering the communications experience.(y)

    Yes If the radio was mine and under warrenty I would want it to work also.But would not use the beep. Every now and then all the guys on the chanel have a roger beep and echo war just for fun.

    He didn't mention that the radio was under warranty.
    I have a Mr Jiggs TB-1 tweety bird that I will play relentlessly on roger beepers and reverbers. That is the ultimate annoying noise toy and I never shoot unless I am being shot at!
