CB Repair

Mods, feel free to move this to a better location.


I have a RadioShack t446 CB unit thats about twenty years old and it won't transmit or receive. I have no comms expertise and was wondering if anyone knew of any repair services either online or in the New England area. This radio is kind of a family hand-down from my grandfather who had it in all his vehicles and my dad, etc etc...and now I'm going to put it in my Ranger and soon a VW TDI jetta. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys. (and gals).

Just google cb radio repair for your area.

But to be honest with you. You may just want to keep that radio as a family thing. Then purchase a new radio. Being the parts that are needed to repair it may not be available.

But usually if the radio is not transmitting you may just need a new mic for it.

Look for a local Amateur Radio Club. The FCC frowns on hams fixing CBs, but the Amateur Radio club would know who/where you could get it fixed.

An old CB that is totally dead probably has a fuse hidden inside or a bad on/off switch. If it was half dead (no TX, or no RX) it would be harder to fix.

Sounds like it turns on, just doesn't work.
