So I was all set for my last wheeling trip. Met with the people I was going with and we agreed on channel 5 for communications. switched to the channel and proceeded to test... and nothing. I called up another rig on my phone and they said that they could hear me clear as day. I was trying to tune my CB all day but since I'm a complete newbie with CBs I had no idea what I was doing.
Anyone have any ideas of why I couldn't receive anything?
Did you look at the meter when the others were using their CB's ? You should see the needle on the S meter bounce back and forth when someone is transmitting.
The most common reason for a CB to receive transmitted signals but not have any sound output is a defective microphone or a mic wiring problem. If the mic in not connected, it is broken, or you have a broken/disconnected mic wire, the internal speaker will not function.

Not trying to hijack, but I am having the same problem with my Jeep/radio. Good output but doesnt receive. Needle does move though when others key up. Recently had the radio peaked and tuned and the mic wiring re-done. Tried a different antenna (magnet base that was originally with the radio on a different vehicle) but nothing still. So I took the radio and plugged it into my truck in place of that CB. Everything works great. Back in the Jeep and can't get it to receive. I've pulled the coax out and will replace it next week. Did notice some worn areas on the outer coating. I'll be replacing it at the radio shop so as to learn from the experts.
I'll post up again once I make a trip to the radio shop. Hopefully things will be all squared away by then.
