don't they come with coax and antennas already installed? If you can run the coax out the window to the mirror bracket then up and over the visorsthat would be good.the only thing is if it has a fiberglass door,no ground plane. you will have to then ground the antennas to the chassis and maybe even use a grounding strap.

It means either the knob or something in the squelch circuit has gone bad. Doesn't mean that you cannot use the radio, you will just hear static all the time when no one is talking. If the static bothers you, you can always back the RF gain down a bit. That will quiet the noise, but lower you receive range. meaning you won't hear as far away.

That's a confusing question. Device id is the FCC device ID number and means it has been approved to transmit in the USA. It has nothing to do with model. So, in terms of a radio device, it means nothing to a tech or a way to get parts or even a battery. The device ID is typically located on the back of a radio or under the battery. Could you ask what you are looking for?

Hi Anonymous, as you say, your batteries have little or almost no charge capacity
That's why the charger lights remain on
Simply replace the batteries.
I hope you can solve the problem
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Anonimo, por lo que comentas, tus baterias tienen poca o casi nula, capacidad de carga
Espor eso las luces del cargador permanecen prendidas
Simplemente, reemplaza las pilas
Espero puedas resolver el problema
Saludos Franco Dosil

the issue is that this radio has an audio boost control function, Dynamike. That is likely the issue, the two are working against each other. You can see if the power mic you have will work if you dial the Dynamike all the way down, but you might have to live with the stock mike.

Check you user manual and see if it has a procedure to do a factory reset as typically this is the only way to get things like this working again.

What is the swr? This can impact the receiver. However, the tuning coils for receive and transmit are close to each other and someone most likely turned the receive coil instead of the transmit coil. The coils that are adjustable that affect receive are 13, 15 and 3. 3 is the coil that is close to the transmit section. You may want to have it realigned.

If it "keys up" without a mic plugged in, try plugging the mic into the radio and see if it stops. Some radios require the mic to be plugged into it to operate properly. If it is keyed up with the mic plugged into it, try unplugging the mic and see if it stops. If it does stop when you unplug the mic, either the switch in the mic is stuck/went bad or there is a wire shorted in the mic cord to radio plug. Make sure pins 3 and 4 on the mic plug are not shorted. A continuity meter will tell you. If the mic is keyed, pins 3 and 4 will show a short, if the mic is not keyed, pins 3 and 4 should not show a short. If the mic is functioning normally but the radio is still keyed up then there is something in the radio that is shorted.

pull the batteries out, slam them ******* a solid surface. put 'em in, let 'em charge. if that doesn't bring 'em back buy new bats.also, use a voltmeter to make sure the charger was getting voltage.
Good luck!
