Re: midland 70-1495b

Not worth it.
Too many mods required starting with the VCO. One wrong/bad part and it becomes un-fixable, unless youy have an entire development lab at your disposal.
There is no "kit"
I am an expert on this radio and I would not try it.
Swap for an A version, or buy another radio.

Re: 70-3400BD Repeater narrowband questions

Re: 70-1340B mod pot ?

Mod control is done only via programmer.
Low/high power, frequency netting (on freq) done via programmer too.
Only the CTCSS is adjusted manually by removing the microprocessor cover and adjusting the pot o nthe tone board.

programmer can be PC based or the 70-1080 handheld.

Re: Midland 70-1340B

Install jumper on rear 9 pin connector between pins 5 and 6.
For external speaker, connect speaker to pins 4 and 6.

DO NOT ground any side of speaker; audio amp is balanced and damage will result, or speaker audio will cut in/out and be too low/distorted.

Re: 70-1340b user manual


Advise what buttons the radio has. This affects its' operation.
Programming also affects a lot too. If you are a user with no access to programming sw then there is not much that can be done if you are not happy regarding its' operation.
