    APX Motorola APX6000/SRX2200 Volume Knob Damage

    Hello all. This is my first post after lurking for a long while. I currently use an SRX2200 AN Model 1.5 radio and recently it was dropped from a fair height directly onto the volume knob. The result was the knob and the connector to the knob (including the spanner) was disconnected from the...

    I can hear fine, but when I try to transmit, no power makes it to my antenna

    So I recently bought a cb radio, it's an old hy-gain 1 681 (the forty channel model), and a mag mount mic, I don't yet have an swr meter, so I don't know if it's tuned or not. I can hear just fine, but when I try to transmit, nobody hears me. I started troubleshooting the problem, and found...

    Is there supposed to be a gap between the end of the copper part of the coax, and the base of the antenna

    This probably sounds dumb, but I thought I should play it safe and ask anyway. I'm relatively new to the use of a cb radio, and I was getting an swr of 9 on all channels, as well as barely hearing any static with squelch turned all the way down so I took the base of the antenna apart (a...

    Motorola XPR 7550e speaker ticking noise on RX.

    Hello all: I was very happy with my first XPR 7550, so I ordered the XPR 7550e. When I began receiving a radio call, I noticed a ticking noise coming from the XPR 7550e. Since I had both, older and current 7550 models, I was able to hear the differences. They both had a ticking noise, when the...

    I am repairing a PSR-500 where I need to remove the RF shield near the BNC antenna connector. I have all the desoldering tools, so that is no problem. However, they've now added some sort of brown "glue" on top of several of the solder joints. Has anyone run into this before? What is the...
