Weather Radio won't work on 29 Nightwatch

Cb is on a 2007 Freightliner which has commercial radio running off the CB antennaes. Commercial radio has weather band and it works. Have put on other antnnaes and ran them straight to CB and weather channel works, but won't work if ran through the truck radio system, has something to do with the trucks pre wired antennae's.

Need to know what I have to do to get the CB's weather channel to work,

Hello papapyr07,

It looks like you are trying to run the CB and the commercial radio off of the same antenna at the same time? This I gather is failing. This may be due to the pre-wired antenna having a filter on it to prevent exactly what you are trying to do. If this is the case you may have no choice but to run a separate antenna for your CB (this is the most logical choice), now you can try to find the filter if it is an external filter and remove it and use an antenna matching network to connect the CB to the existing antenna system (next logical, but may void the antenna system warranty). In any event you will either have to run another antenna for the CB or find and remove the present antenna filter.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

With my cobra 29 wx nw st I can not pick up any weather channels. I have the k30 antenna. Do I need a dual band antenna?


Do you hear static when you turn on weather? If so there are just none in range of you. There are not weather radio stations everywhere. You would not use a dual band antenna on any CB. Only an antenna designed for the 11 meter band. Which is the 27mhz CB radio band.

You can go here and see if you have NOAA All hazards weather radio coverage in your area.

If the CB radio is working otherwise it is most likely that there is just not a NOAA transmitter near you.

I have had a Cobra 29 BT installed and my reception is nothing but loud static only when moving. It is a 2010 Freightliner and SWR is consistently high at about 3.0. Is this a coax or antenna problem?


Hi,my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. It could be both. Try running your unit direct from or to the battery, bi-passing all ignition noise. Make sure your antenna is getting a good ground, have your SWR checked at a near-by CB shack, or Radio Shack all for free. Thanks for choosing FixYa....John

Have cobra classic 29 nightwatch. have good antenna, good coax, sri's under 1 but I can't hear allot of answers back over the road without someone closer telling me what what said


Try making sure the RF gain is up all the way. Make sure all connections are good and tight, use the best antenna you can get. I love the 102 inch steele whip myself, just depends on what vehicle it would be on. conditions here the last few months have been pretty good for 10 meter ham and other ham bands, pretty bad for cb because so much skip/
