OPERATIONAL HINTS
Like most activities, CB radio has its
customs and courtesies. The following
tips will help you get the most enjoyment
from your CB.
COMMON USES
FOR A CB
Personal Uses
• Keep in touch with home while driving to work, to the store, or to a
social activity. Let your family know
you are tied up in traffic or that you
will stop by the store on the way
home.
• Truck drivers and delivery personnel
can learn road and traffic conditions
and get assistance in locating destinations. A CB radio is also good
company on those “long hauls.”
• On construction crews, a CB radio
quickly pays for itself when you are
calling for additional materials or
coordinating the activities of different work crews.
TRANSMISSION
COURTESY
Please follow these guidelines of radio
courtesy when using your CB.
• If you are a two-car (or more) family,
CB radios are great for communicating with family members while they
are in their cars.
• Wait for a pause in someone else’s
transmission before you ask for a
break.
• Contact friends or neighbors —find
out “what’s happening” or plan a
get-together.
• If you do not receive an answer to
your call after a second attempt,
sign off and wait several minutes
before trying again.
• Ever have car trouble or run out of
gas on the highway? What an assurance it is to be able to radio for
assistance!
• Do not hold down PUSH TO TALK
when you are not talking. (This is
called dead keying.)
• Camping, fishing, and other sports
are more fun with a CB radio. Locate
a buddy or find out “what’s cooking”
back at camp.
Business Uses
• For security officers, a CB is more
than a convenience — it is a must
for both safety and efficiency.
12
• Assist callers with directions, information about road conditions, and
any other reasonable requests.

MAXIMUM RANGE
The maximum range and quality of CB
radio transmissions vary depending on
the following conditions:
• the type and quality of antenna used
• the height of the antenna’s mounting
location — the higher the antenna,
the better the signal’s range
• the surrounding terrain — mountains and tall buildings limit the
range
• weather conditions
• the number of nearby radios operating on the same channel
• standing wave ratio (SWR) between
the antenna and the CB
Note: Your CB radio’s transmission
range is generally line-of-sight.

15
21-1703.fm Page 16 Wednesday, June 2, 1999 4:35 PM
REDUCING NOISE
Because your CB is exceptionally quiet,
any noise you hear is probably from an
external source in your vehicle such as
the alternator, another radio or spark
plugs.
The transceiver uses an ANL (Automatic
Noise Limiter) circuit to reduce noise.
However, if possible, try to eliminate the
noise by finding its source.
You can determine the noise’s source
by turning off the engine and operating
the CB with your vehicle’s ignition set to
ACC. If the noise is reduced, the problem is in your vehicle’s ignition or electrical system.
Here are a few hints to help you reduce
or eliminate such noise.
• Make all CB power and antenna
wires as short as possible.
• Route the power wires away from
the antenna wires.
• Be sure that the chassis ground
connection is secure.
• Replace old ignition wires with new,
high-voltage, noise suppression
wires.
• Install noise suppressors on your
spark plugs, or install new spark
plugs that have built-in noise suppressors.
16
• If problems persist, check your alternator/generator
and
regulator
gauges. You can reduce the noise
from these sources by using bypass
capacitors at the various output voltage points.
Your local RadioShack store has a wide
selection of noise suppression accessories.
21-1703.fm Page 17 Wednesday, June 2, 1999 4:35 PM
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack TRC-503 40 Channel Mobile CB Radio with Channel 9/19 Priority
Switch is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for your CB so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the CB dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids can contain minerals that can corrode electronic circuits.
Handle the CB gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit
boards and cases and can cause the CB to work improperly.
Use and store the CB in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices and distort or
melt plastic parts.
Keep the CB away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear
of parts.
Wipe the CB with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do
not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to
clean the CB.
Modifying or tampering with the CB’s internal components can cause a malfunction
and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your
CB is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
17
21-1703.fm Page 18 Wednesday, June 2, 1999 4:35 PM
REPLACING THE FUSE
The TRC-503’s 2-amp in-line fuse helps
protect your CB from power surges and
short circuits. When replacement is required, use a 2-amp, slow-blow glass
fuse, such as Cat. No. 270-1023.
Caution: Do not use a fuse with ratings
other than those specified here. Doing
so might damage your CB.
Follow these steps to replace the fuse.
1. Make sure the power source and CB
are both off.
2. Hold the fuse holder by both ends,
push the ends together, twist one
end counterclockwise, then pull
them apart.
3. Remove the old fuse and inspect its
condition. If it is blown, insert a new
one of the same type and rating. If it
is not blown, reinsert it.
4. Push the fuse holder ends together
and twist one end clockwise.
