20 Most Recent Cobra MicroTalk PR 1100 WX (15 Channels) 2-Way Radio Questions & Answers


Hello horndog78,

Your radio may be locked. You can confirm this by looking for a icon of a padlock on the screen.

To toggle the lock on and off hold down the LOCK/MODE button for a full two seconds until you hear a double beep.

Best Regards,
Ken

one of the units may have a bad mic element. Can you hear the speaker unmute when the radio is keyed?

its most likely the switch, now sure how handy you are, but open it up & replace
in all honesty I'd throw it way & buy a new one they're cheap enough

Your description of "Glass encase 4mm reddish orange, black end." leads me to deduct that this is a diode. The black end denotes the cathode. For more help, post back.

Check to see if you have "tone squelch" or CTCSS enabled. It will only receive transmissions from stations that are transmitting the tone your radio has selected.

Just in case these radios have been modified, or have lost there settings, please perform the following:
All radios must be tuned to the same channel and privacy code to communicate. To successfully communicate using a privacy code, both the sending and receiving radios must be tuned to the same channel and to the same privacy code system (CTCSS or DCS) and privacy code number. Each channel will remember the last privacy code system and number you select.
The privacy code 00 is not a privacy code, but allows all signals to be heard on a channel that is set to 00 on both the CTCSS and DCS systems.

Channels 1 through 7 are shared with FRS/GMRS. Channels 8 through 14 are FRS only.
Channels 15 through 22 are GMRS only.

To select a CTCSS privacy code:
1. After selecting a channel, press the Mode/Power button until the CTCSS icon appears and the small numbers next to the channel number flash on the display. If DCS is turned on at the channel selected, the display will flash the CTCSS icon and "OFF." To switch from DCS to CTCSS, press the Channel Up or Channel Down button while the display is flashing "OFF." The display will then show the small numbers flashing and you will then be able to proceed to step 2.
2. Press using the Channel Up or Channel Down button to select a privacy code. You can hold the Up or Down button for fast advance.
3. When your desired CTCSS privacy code is displayed, choose one of the following:
a. Press the Mode/Power button to enter the new setting and proceed to other functions.
b. Press the Lock button to enter the new setting and return to Standby mode.
c. Do not press any buttons for 15 seconds to enter the new setting and return to Standby mode.

To select a DCS privacy code:
1. After selecting a channel, press the Mode/Power button until the DCS icon appears and the
small numbers flash on the display (01 through 83).
2. Press using the Channel Up or Channel Down button to select a DCS privacy code. You can hold the Up or Down button for fast advance.
3. When your desired DCS privacy code is displayed, choose one of the following:
a. Press the Mode/Power button to enter the new setting and proceed to other functions.
b. Press the Lock button to enter the new setting and return to Standby mode.
c. Do not press any buttons for 15 seconds to enter the new setting and return to Standby mode.
