I think my CB radio unit is now faulty. It is a Intek M-120 Plus.

Basically the last time I used it was roughly November last year. I have been using it in my car as a communication device within my Classic Mini Club. I Have been using it with a Mag mount and Orbiter Antenna. Over the winder I have bought a new roof rack mount and PL259 lead. I come to use it today with my new equipment (Roof Rack mount and Lead) and now the radio doesn't seem to transmit or receive message from other users. I reverted back to my original setup that worked before and that isn't working either. I have tried changing frequencies and different channels but nothing.

Thanks

Hi, Thanks for the reply and hope I haven't wasted your time but my unit is fully working. I went out to one of my club members house who also has a CB radio and did a bit of testing and my CB is absolutely fine! This is a relief lol. I think is was just a fact that no one locally was using their CBs when I was, so I got a bit worried. But thank you so much for the reply.

Thanks
