Hello,

I'm very new to CB radio (well, last used it about 36 years ago!). I'm doing a charity banger rally in a few weeks and brought this radio 2nd hand to communicate with the other drivers during the rally.
The radio switches on fine and is set to the UK setting. I can change the channels ok and when I transmit the TX light comes on and the power meter goes up.

However I never hear anyone on Channel 19 and when I speak I get no answer. Also the AM/FM, EMG, SCAN and memory buttons don't seem to do anything at all.

Have I brought a dud?

oh and I don't have a SWR meter but might be able to borrow one.

Any help much appreciated.
