Just bought a connex coyote hunter.the antenna i have is for cb i know that for 10 meter radios you have to have a antenna thats tuned.on cb band shouldn't i be able to hear On cb band? With cb ant?


The antennae has to be tuned for the radio not for the band you are listening to. If is a 10 metre band, so you need a 10 metre antennae which enables you to listen to both bands, but looking at the jpg of the radio it gives bands A, B, C, and D, nothing about CB radio itself, but the option of AM and FM radio.. Using the wrong antennae could damage it.

My s9 when i go to block A/ B/C/D/ it only works on e block and sideband on the other blocks it wont stay on frequency it keeps fluctuating and the channel changer dont work on those faulty bands and...


There could be many things wrong for this issue. For some reason your radio is oscillating. You need to take it to a licensed tech and have them put it on a scope. It could be a crystal inside the radio as well as the PLL chip or a slew of other things. I would strongly recommend letting a tech handle this. Good luck.

Will the 257 work on 11 meters/cb40 channels?


The Magnum 257 is a 10-meter Amateur radio, but it can be easily modified to operate on the 11-meter CB radio band. The modification and use of this radio on the CB frequencies is, of course, illegal. To modify one of the newer blue-faced models (this will not work on the original yellow-face models), remove the speaker side cover and look for the CPU board in the front of the radio close to the mic connector. This board has four sets of pins and a jumper that fits on the pins. To convert/expand the radio, move the connector to the CON3 position. This will give you frequency coverage from 25.165 to 29.699 MHZ, and the CB frequencies will be on Band E of the radio. Again, this modification, and use of the radio on the CB frequencies, is illegal. This modification information is provided for shop/calibration and experimental use only.

In Thailand Cb radio users must use freq range 245.000 - 249.999 freqs. Do usa Cb's use this freq?


Thailand actually has three "CB" bands, the first is the same as the U.S. / CEPT (EU "European Community) band 26.965 - 27.405 MHz, the second is a 78MHz VHF mid CB band (I think its either 40 or 80 channels with FM mode) and then the 245.0000 - 245.9875 MHz VHF 80 channel band - apparently the law also stipulates that the 78MHz CBs must be yellow colored and the 245MHz CBs must be red colored.

But yeah, 245MHz Thailand VHF CBs are very illegal in the United States.

Information on how to use DX 45MP radio


The DX 45mp is a 10 meter radio meaning you need a license to use any other band other than the normal 1- 40 cb channels, its capable of going beyond the normal cb range.Ask if it has been converted to 11 meter. Channel E should be the normal if it has been converted from 10 meter to 11 meter. Im sure its been converted if its been used for a mobile cb application. Normal cb band is called 11 meter 26.965 mhz to 27.405 thats 1- 40 . Your not supposed to talk on the other bands unless you have an amature radio license but everyone does anyway . I have several galaxys and by far in my opinion are the best on the market. Go to www.cbtricks.com on the home page go to Radio Informaion click it go to G and follow it to Galaxy DX radios youll find all the info for this radio you can even print out the channel chart to see where everything is. Good luck and if you have any more questions just ask. Thank you Chia

10 meter portable


There is no factory made 10 meter CB Radio made for US use. CB Radios use 11 meters, and the FCC doesn't allow the combination of 10 and 11 meter radios combines. Although, many people modify 10 meter radios to work on the 11 meter ( CB ) band, it's not legal. Good Luck
