You can fix some problems with your CB radio. ( Images)

Galaxy Saturn Base CB radio stations make it possible to communicate over a total of 40 individual short wave channels. Most CB (Citizens' Band) radio channels allow only one transmission to be transmitted at a time per channel. Problems such as electrical interference, high or low SWR levels and loss of frequency may occur. In order to troubleshoot problems with the unit, you must follow step-by-step directions to identify the main problem.

  1. 1

    Check all physical parts of the unit such as the inputs and outputs located on the front and back of the machine. Wipe input and output ports with a soft cloth and make sure no dust is near the air-vents of the unit on the side.

  2. 2

    Power the radio on, if it will turn on. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the radio for 10 seconds and then reconnect, if the radio didn't power on. Connect the "Red" (positive) and "Black" (negative) wires to the external battery source. There may be a burnt fuse if the unit still does not power on.

  3. 3

    Disconnect all cables that are connected to the battery if you're experiencing electrical noise or interference. Reconnect the power lead (red and black) cables to the battery. Do a direct connection to the battery for best results.

  4. 4

    Check the antenna and ensure that the unit is grounded to a surface if the SWR meter is too high or low. Move the antenna while you turn the tuner on the front of the unit. Remove the antenna from the unit and reconnect it if the channel still isn't coming in clear.
