Connex HP Radio Review : Long Range Amateur Radio for Truckers

Last Updated on by Wayne

The Connex HP is a meter radio which is can be peaked, tuned and can also be aligned at a maximum of 40 Watts PEP. The radio has a blue LED display which has 40 channels AM/FM. We all know that the radios by connex are the most preferred and most used radios in the world. The two important factors which keep them one of the best on roads are quality and reliability.

The meter scale of the radio is small for signal strength and to get a more power output. What you will love about this radio is its power output. It gives you a maximum Power output AM of 10 Watts. Moreover, it has got a talkback facility which is very helpful for truck drivers. This high performing radio works best in vehicles that have a negative ground system.

Remember, you will have to take this radio to your nearby CB shop to convert it to a CB radio. But if that&#;s done, what is waiting for you is an amazing performance from this lad.

Here is the review of Connex HP. This is one of the best performing radio from Connex brand.

Connex CB Radio Review

In my experience, Connex is known for producing the most durable and long lasting radio. With the right man setting it for you, there is none no better. They cover a great distance and have good clarity.

Performance

They are inbuilt with dual MOSFET finals which is one of the best ways to increase the output. It is equipped with noise blankers and noise limiters which clips an audio signal to reduce the amplitude of impulse noise. Also, the talkback aids us in communicating. For best transmitter performance and a reduced receiver noise can be obtained by maintaining a good DC connection. In the case of weak signals, one might experience interference by background noise.

The temperature of this CB radio ranges from °C to 50°C. The input voltage should be given a V DC. The performance of the radio will decrease substantially with a poor connection. The radio has NB and ANL circuits which help to reduce the noises that may arise from the background such as from the ignition systems etc.

The installation of the radio should be chosen in such a way that it does not interfere with driver or passenger. The HP CB by Connex is pretty loud and has a good audio quality. You can turn off the roger beep. The very first switch is for a noise blocker and Roger beep, either put it all the way up or down, in the middle it turns the roger beep on. It has a Small meter with scales for signal strength and power output.

Many people have doubts about this radio working on a day to day operation in a dump truck. But it holds up very well to the beating a rock truck environment can dish out. You can use your CB radio all day long and not have a problem with it.

The Antenna

To talk about the antenna, they have a jack in the rear for a standard PL antenna plug. If you are looking for the most range for your transmission, use a vertically polarised, quarter wavelength antennas. For better results, you have to adjust the antenna so that it matches with the radio. After you tune and peak the radio and with small linear, and a Wilson , 18ft of coax, one can skip pretty far. You can have conversations with people who are around – kilometers. In order to use the PA function, we have to first connect the external speaker to the jack named PA SP on the rear side of the radio. Try to keep the speaker away from the microphone to avoid acoustic feedback. The squelch control know eliminates the disturbing background noise.

Gain and Modes

You can use the RF Gain control switcher to control the RF gain of the amplifier. They have provided the facility so that the user can use it in both AM and FM. There is a MODE switch which allows us to select any one from these operational modes. Front panel meter allows the user to monitor signal strength and RF output power. Channel display shows the currently selected channel.

The user should select a low impedance dynamic microphone of the transistorized microphone so as to get the best possible results. These transistorized type microphones have a low output impedance characteristics which will yield a better result. After the completion of the microphone plug wiring, connect and secure the microphone plug in the transceiver. The audio power output we get will be in a range of W with a 10% distortion.

Pros and Cons

Main advantages are:-

  • Great audio quality
  • High AM peak power
  • Loud
  • Works in AM and FM
  • Durable

Some disadvantages are:-

  • You&#;ve to convert it to use as CB Radio
  • Slightly affected by weather conditions

Conclusion

To conclude, the HP from Connex is one of the best radios and they are more durable and long-lasting than many others. As a truck driver, you will love enjoying the talkback facility the radio has. It will be one of the best things you will enjoy using while driving. The radio has two power output levels. If you’ve found yourself a right man to set it for you, you probably need nothing more.

After properly tuning and peaking, you will get amazing performance from this radio. You will have to take it to your nearby shops to use it as an excellent CB radio. The CB radio has noise limiters which increase the output gain. It has around a 10% distortion but provides a power output of W. I recommend buying it for your truck.

  2. They always have been illegal here. Within the last 2 years the FCC has started going after the folks who sell them (Pilot was fined $, TA and Petro paid fines that have not been disclosed) and those who own them.

    The best way to tell if a radio is legal is to look on the back. A leagal radio will have a sticker or plate with the FCC ID Number.

    The really laughable part about these radios is that they are sold as Amateur Radios. Amatuer Radio is far more advanced then these radios are.

    Here ya&#; go. These are just 2 of hundreds of letters to companies as well as drivers:
    See a pattern here? I don&#;t get anywhere near the Canadian borders so I must plead a bit of ignorance about that process. However, any dummy who leaves an illegal item up on his dash while going through customs deserves a fine for being stupid! Of course they will take issue of it when it is shoved in their face! Although these examples could be authentic, I question the authenticity of any letters posted on the internet. We&#;ve all heard the wild stories over the CB from drivers. What makes anyone think this medium will be any different when many of the same people access it?

    I guess the safe bet would be to purchase a standard CB radio and not worry about how loud you are to someone 5 miles away! Now, to find a good, standard CB radio

    Any suggestions?

    These are from fcc.gov. They are made available on the web. Go to fcc.gov and search for Enforcement letters. Also search for the Banned Radios list.

    You&#;ll see hundreds of warning letters and NAL (Notice of Aparent Liability). The NAL just tells you what the fine is.

    You&#;ll also see that US Customs is only 1 tool they are using. Sometimes they pop up at the truckstop (or Yard) and request to inspect your equipment. Refuse and you&#;ll earn an emmidiate NAL. Comply and you may lose your illigal equipment but you&#;ll only earn an Enforcement letter and not the fine.

    Also they are training the DOT and State Patrols. Some believe the cops have better things to do. I think they will enforce the regs because they want the revenue. You decide.

    You see how much the fine is in the letters I posted.

    Another method is this:

    Your talking on your illegal radio and either splattering onto a licensed services frequency or actually on the licensed services frequency and if it is Ham Radio frequency 3 or 4 Hams will get together and triangulate on you to find out where you are. One may even talk to you to keep you talking, until they find you. While they are doing this they record you, and once they find you they will write down your company info, license plate and truck number. They will send it all in to the FCC and you&#;ll get an Enforcement letter with a request to call in 20 days. You call and tell them the radio equipment is gone and you&#;ll never do it again and you avoid the NAL. Ignore the call, or as some drivers do, call them and tell them they cant have your radio and how important you are, and how it is your right to do as you like and you&#;ll recieve a NAL and pay the fine or as Jack Gerritson form LA recently discovered go to prison for 3 years.

    I support the FCC&#;s efforts. WHy?
    I earned the priveledge to transmitt on Ham radio frequencies as did , hams in this country. The other licensed services payed millions of dollars to use the very limited frequencies that they do.

    Ham radio is all about Emergency communications. That is why we are allowed the huge RF Bandwidth. If you should ever interfere with Emergency communications (Even accidentaly) your looking at 10 years. Even emergency communications on the CB.

    You earned no priveledges in any part of the RF Spectrum. You bought a radio and probably allowed some retard in a CB shop tune it up (screw it up). YEAH BUDDY! I GOT SWING!

    I test ever CB shop I come accross. It is a simple test. I aske questions about basic electronics. In 20 years (off and on) of driving I have seen 2 CB Shops who passed the test. The CB/Ham shop in Ontario, CA and Walcott CB in Walcott, IA. Both sell illegal radios though and both use Hams as techs.

    I have built my own radios and build all of my own antennas. I know how to use an O&#;scope and know that no watt meter (however expensive) is accurate. I know what happens to a signal when a mod limiter is removed or clipped out of circuit.

    Most drivers believe it is thier right to run as much power as they like and run whatever frequency they like. If asked most of the radio mindless will tell you that channel 19 is for truckers only. It is not.

    There are many CBers who run legal, clean systems and know that their antenna is the most important part of their system. Then there are those (most drivers) who have no clue and have no idea of the damage they do.

    Then we have the idiots with power. They think they are the "Channel Master" and say stupid stuff like, "Don&#;t make me throw this switch". What they have no idea of is the fact that unless you take precautions, RF power will take your sight, your testes, and cause cancer. That is because they are uneducated and worry about what their cell phone is doing to them but don&#;t consider for a moment what their CB might be doing.

    What I am saying is it is just a CB and ownership of one does not give anybody the right to act like an ignorrant buffoon and be irresponsable. Somebody always has a fsater truck, is tougher and meaner and has a bigger radio.

    I am not a spectrum cop but if you tresspass onto my frequencies I will collect evidence and turn you in. I earned the priveledge to talk here. If you want to talk here go learn radio and take the test.

    I will also happily help you make your radio work better. I can teach you to make a legal radio talk and sound like one of the so called big radios. All it takes is education.

    Nobody really cares what you do on CB&#;s 40 channels. Just stay on the 40 channels your allowed and keep your spurrious emmisions there as well.
    You do know what spurious emmisions are don&#;t you?

    Please pardon my spelling errors.

    Please pardon my spelling errors.
    Maybe you mistook my post or I simply came off as an ##*. I am not arguing with you here. In fact, I completely agree with everything you said!

    BTW, I do know what "spurious emissions" means. You won&#;t find me doing any such thing and you won&#;t find an illegal radio in my possession as I don&#;t own one!
  8. Now I would like to pick your brain, if you don&#;t mind, about which CB radio you would recommend. Please keep in mind that the company I work for does not provide a mounting bracket on the dash, I am not allowed to drill holes in the dash and the hole in this Freightliner above the dash is just big enough for a radio with Cobra 29 dimensions.

    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Pick my brain? No problem. That is why I asked for this part of the forum to be added.

    I&#;d recommend any Uniden (I always recommend Uniden because they are well built) or Cobra that fits the space you have. If you&#;ll use SSB then pick one with SSB otherwise any of the AM models will work for you. All of these radios have the same power capability. Cobras built since around have some quality problems that are easily corrected. Before that they were built by Uniden and were rock solid.
    For an antenna, save your money and leave the big coily jobs on the rack. By a 5/8ths wave antenna. It will have gain over the 1/4 wave antenna and will out perform almost everything available. Firesticks and the Wilson Silver Load are 5/8ths wave antenna and are inexpensive.

    I recently took a 5/8ths wave Skip Shooter and lengthened it almost 3 feet and made it a 1/2 wave antenna. This gives a gain of around 12db. It is now too long for the truck and will have to live on my Bronco. :(

    BTW, 3db gain is the same as adding 10 times the power to your radio. Every 3db doubles your signal.


    The hard part:

    Every manufacturer expects you to run to the CB Shop for a tune up. Therefore, your new radio will not be set to it&#;s legal limits. Now you&#;ve got to find a good CB shop aqnd tell them you want a 4 Watt dead key and % Modulation. This should be done on an oscilloscope and not a meter. A good shop will have a scope and will know how to use it. Tell them you do not want the Modulation Limiter clipped. And watch them. They should not get near your radio with wire clippers of a soldering iron (except to unsolder the speaker to facilitate case removal).

    Buy the best coax you can afford and keep it short. Any excess, Coil it up near the antenna or the radio. They tell you not to and say it creates a choke. What it does do is create a crude Balun (matching device) and will not allow RF to travel on the shield back ito you cab.

    Now I&#;ve got to go play in the snow in Utah. I&#;ll check back here tomorrow sometime.

    1. So I was recently gifted a Stryker SRHP. I already own a Connex HP. Due to the limited space in my service truck, I keep a small Cherokee CM in there. So, as is, I really don&#;t need two full-sized radios.
      I don&#;t really know anything about the Stryker radios, so could somebody provide some insight, perhaps compare and contrast the two? I&#;m thinking of selling one, but I&#;m not sure which one is more of a keeper.

    3. Stryker hpc and the connex hp have the same basic features, echo, talkback, 10k switch, stryker has 8 bands of channels, connex has 6 bands. Stryker has 2 roger beep settings, if your into that, connex has none.

      Stryker hpc has 4-irf mosfet finals for + watts pep
      Connex hp has 2-irf mosfet finals for 50+ watts pep

      Stryker is microprocessor controled and uses some smt parts, makeing it more difficult to diagnose and work on. Some techs won&#;t touch smt parts.
      Connex is pll controled, like most cb/export radios, uses basic components. Easy to diagnose and work on.

      Stryker has a noisy reciever while mobile. Noise blanker really doesn&#;t do much. But the radio still has a decent recieve range.
      Connex&#;s recieve is much quieter. It seems to have more filtering and better adjacent channel rejection, and still has great recieve range. Great ears on the connex.

      Stryker has some of the loudest, cleanest audio I&#;ve ever heard on an export. Great sounding digital echo board, and probably the clearest talkback you&#;ll ever hear.
      Connex are loud and clear, great sounding echo, but the talkback is usually muffled.

      I&#;ve never had a hpc, but I&#;ve been running a hpc off and on for the psst couple years. I would assume, other than the output difference, they would perform the same. Its held up well so far with no problems, still works as well as the day I put it in. Ive also ran a connex hp for a short time, it was also a great reliable radio, no problems. They&#;re both great radios. Imo the stryker wins hands down on audio performance, while the connex has the edge on the recieve side. The stryker will most likely fetch more cash, but everybody is running a connex or galaxy. Plus, the styker has all those twinkeling little lights! Lol. I wouldn&#;t trade my stryker for a connex, but that&#;s just me.
    4. Awesome post! Thanks a lot!
      I bought the Connex in 03, and I s&#;pose I might be a little bit attached to it. Had Stomper down in Duncan (SC) set it up for me if they&#;re easier to work on, that would certainly appeal to me, since the only CB shop I know of in this area is across from the TA on Quebec St. (I stay in town and work seven days a week, so making the trip up to Johnson&#;s Corner really isn&#;t feasible for me). Perhaps I&#;ll try the Stryker out for a bit, and see how I like it. Or maybe I&#;ll end up with a CB for every day of the week. Who knows?

      Bout Z and tucker Thank this.
    5. I Bought a SR from Dubs in Marshall IL , July , been using it since , there is just one radio I&#;d be just as proud to run and it&#;s the Connex hp. I love the way it sounds. However I would not trade my for anything , Terry at Dubs in Marshall doesn&#;t sell it anymore but told me he&#;ll always service the ones he&#;s sold. He installed a swing kit in it when I bought it , and promised me the best CB experience I&#;ve ever had. It indeed is , however the swing kit went bad about 4 months ago , ran it back to him and have again gotten praise from everybody I talk to , he also talked me into the Monkey made when I bought it , and proved recently to me that it sounds 30 to 40% better with the road king vs the Actasic.
      I&#;ve talked to a neighbor of mine here in Garrison Ky from Buckeye AZ but could not hear him , he told me a couple weeks later when I got home he heard me calling him. I&#;ve had conversations with Diesel Dr Effingham from Miami , Co. and TX. I&#;ve held 15 to 20 minutes of Conversation with Base stations several times in running down an interstate , 15 to 20 miles. Was talking one night to Gator my neighbor in Ky from Lucasville OH , this is the foot hills area to the Appalachians , 26 miles ofrolling hills between us , and once had a 10 min conversation with Bluegrass a base in Ky HTS KY , from Tucumcari NM . No kicker no boosters , barefoot and getting every bit of the spent just for the radio. I&#;ve spoken on 26 , 28 , 11 , and 6 to guys from 2 to 8 states away. Not always , because of the atmospheric conditions , but when they&#;re right I&#;m skipping . The Connex would be my #2 radio and if I had both there&#;s no way I depart with either. There ya go
    6. Look at your serial number the first two numbers are the year it was manufactured. Mines an 06
      Thanks for this. I&#;d completely forgotten about this thread, and to follow through with customer service. The sticker on the back of mine says "S", so it appears my Stryker is an 06, as well.

    Key Features of The Connex HP

    High Quality Meter and Dual MOSFET Finals

    Perhaps the most important function on this radio is the small meter with scales, to make it ideal for strength and power output. The small meter is unlike most you have come across on most radios today. It takes up a small space on the surface of the radio and is convenient to use as well.

    On top of that, the radio also comes with a dual MOSFET, which involves the use of convenient lights for your needs. The Dual MOSFET is a contemporary type of circuit system, which ensures the CB radio delivers efficient performance. These include the blue meter light, and blue channel LED for your convenience.

    Noise Control Features

    To make things better, this radio even comes with convenient noise-control features to ensure you send and receive quality communications. Noise can occur due to various factors such as distance, poor weather, poor signal quality, channel congestion and more. Since these are inevitable factors you may experience when communicating, it is imperative to get a CB radio that can handle the same issue. 

    The noise control aspects are available on both the speaker and the microphone. The speaker comes with a noise blanker, which does well to stop any interference that may compromise your communication. Even more, the microphone on this unit has an automatic noise limiter, which makes it convenient when communicating with a recipient.

    3-Level Dimmer and Echo Board

    Being able to customize the visibility of the screen is also essential, especially when you have to move through different terrains such as the sea at night. The radio lets you dim the lights to make it easy to view the metrics on the screen. You can customize the brightness level of the LCD to suit your specific lighting conditions. This is because the 3-level dimmer lets you adjust the screen to dark or daylight conditions.

    The best part is that the dimmer control button is well indicated and ergonomic, thus making it simple to use. As far as sound control goes, the makers of this unit have also done well to include a convenient echo board. The echo board works to reduce any echoes that can compromise the communication process.

    40W AM Peak Power and Two Output Levels

    Factors such as the peak power and output levels are crucial when you want to buy a good CB radio for your needs. Why is that? Well, these are features which play a significant role in the quality of sound you can expect from the radio. 

    Thanks to the exceptional 40W AM peak power level, you can instantly gain access to a host of channels conveniently. Not many CB radios can accommodate such a high peak power level. With this radio, you are safe that you can gain access to the emergency channels with ease. More so, the radio has two output levels, which ensures you get audible sound results to suit your needs. Even when using the radio in crowded places, you will still be able to get the sound clear and loud.
