View Full Version : Connex

I was cleaning out my shop the other day and came across an old Connex 3600 hp radio. I tried hooking it up in my Jeep Wrangler and as soon as I push the push to talk button I get a loud squeal. Maybe this is the reason I wasn't using it. I hooked it up in my basement using an inverter and a short antenna and I talked to a guy 5 miles away. Anybody have any ideas what to do here?

check your mic button for sticking or need cleaning. Spray your contacts where your mic plugs into the radio with contact cleaner. Stuff setting around develops corrosion. I think I remember that happening to me once. You made a contact so it is probably something small.

Turn off the talkback...or turn down the Mic Gain...

You know what worked, I unpluged the external speaker and the squeal was gone. I will turn the talkback down and play with the mic gain. Thanks for the advise Guys
