Now this is a question that is more suited for a radio person than a mechanic. The first question I'm going to ask is how far away is the person that is trying to talk to you? If they're riding right beside you or within a few yards, you're hearing what is known as "front end overload" in your radio. In other words, too much power too little distance.

Now,if the person is a good distance away, you may have a problem in the radio and you need to take it to a radio repair shop.

Good Luck
Steve

Cb puts out good sound but when someone try to talk to me it all you hear is static


same thing sometimes happens to me. Usually it is because the person who is talking to you might have a weaker antenna. Sometimes people put a very strong transmitter with them and talk to people but you cant talk back.
So really they can't hear you good either. Just because you are too far away.

Sounds like you need your radio "ALIGNED" by a tech. Not much you can do. Does everyone sound off frequency? If so....theres your problem!

Ref. Cobra 29 Radio: Can talk out and be heard but when someone is talking to me, sometimes I cannot hear them or it has a lot of static. Have tried everything. Please make suggestion.


HI, my name is John. Try putting the RF GAIN to MAX,also the squelch, check the antenna connections, have someone check your SWR, they can do it at Radio Shack for free, or a CB shack. If that does not help, let me know and we will go further with it....hope this was helpful...oh, and turn on the NB or the NBL switch..

Hi i recently bought a cobra 29 ltd chrome cb radio for my car,i also installed a new antenna ,i have a strong signal,but i am unable to hear conversations because the sound is distorted.It sounds like...


You can't tune the radio. You are supposed to tune the antenna.

I have a page for tuning your antenna. This can cause some distortion, but it shouldn't be that bad. Go here for how to tune your antenna.

also the internal speakers aren't that great. Try an external. I can't just use an internal because an external is so much better.

Something else to consider. There is a lot of skip right now. Skip is when the ionosphere becomes charge by solar flairs, and causes radio signals to skip across it, making them travel hundreds and even thousands of miles. There are some cb operators out there who run a lot of power. 10k watts and up, who just talk skip all day. A lot of those guys sound extremely distorted and over modulated. You may be hearing these guys out there. Its their radio's not your receive.

Also. People who are close to you, may over load the front of the radio in the receive section, which will make it sound distorted.

You Need to check and set you SWR on the antenna system. You may also have a bad coax or the ant studs ( mounting hardward ) for the antennas may be bad. It definally sounds like an ant/coax problem Good Luck
