    Uhf issues

    Hi all. Have a uniden din size uhf. Having issues that when receiving incoming transmissions i get continuous static coming through. I can only stop the static by tapping my handset button. Any ideas?

    Does have a squelch button which I've played with. No luck. Only seems to happen when close to the person traveling.

    It wont be the differance betwen the 40 / 80 channel rigs as long as they are on the same channel. (and between channels 1 - 40)

    40 - channel reciveing a transmission from an 80 channel - the recived audio is lower

    80 - channel reciveing a transmission from an 40 channel - the recived audio is higher, worst case you could get some audio blocking (bit of no audio). But most of the cbs are desiggned to prevent this.

    How i it transmiting? do you have good range - can others hear you a km away? - as you might have a staffed antenna / cable / connector (most often a connector fault).

    When you tap the button and stop the static, do you then hear ok?

    Or are you activating the tranmitter?

    Do you have the unit connected to the cigarette live wire? If so, hook it up to your deep cycle battery directly. I use to have it this way and found that the accelerator / idling from motor was inteferring with the unit when listening. Just a thought.

    actully there is a differance the older 40 channel radio's are wide band and the 80's are narrow band if the recive or transmit is not intune it can cause this also sometimes if you are to close to each other it can cause this i have had it happen a few time at work....
