I need a schematic for the Cobra 18 wx st. I see them for the st 2 but not the plain version. I have no receive on CB position. I have resoldered all the vertical connections and tried a different mic. ...


start unsoldering you final , check it for proper voltage. then do the same for the driver. Check the voltage regulator. make sure you have the proper out put voltage in the vco section before doing anything. Also make sure you are on frequency.you more then likely have a short somewhere in the receive section and you are just going to have to break it down area by area , transistor to ICs .Its going to be painstaking but you will find it.

My cobra 18 wx st comes on and goes tru all channels but has no noise at all coming thru it. none of the signal strength lights come on or anything. its brand new.


Sounds like a antenna issue. Make sure coax is in good order.and antenna is connected properly. You might have to get a "swr" meter to put in line between radio and antenna to make sure antenna is "tuned" to were the radio is operating. Radio shack sells a ok low budget swr/power meter.

Where can i get tuneup specs for Cobra 18 wx st extra low modulation


The cobra 18 wx st is the worst radio Cobra ever made. I don't know why they still make it. It's not gonna do much no matter how much you tune it up. Its a bad radio.

Get a cobra 29, and turn VR4 all the way counter clockwise.
(this will not work on the 18)

VR2 is modulation in the 18 wx st. adjust it while checking on a watt meter to see when its all the way up.

Cobra 18 wx st receives-wont transmit


Take the cover off, flip it over solder side up, check all solder joints for cracks, cold solder joints, check the safety diode where it comes in the radio, before I go further, can you pick up the weather channel?...Does the PA work?...need to check the pre-driver and finals,audio chip, hook up the power meter using a coax three foot jumper from the output from radio to the input of the watt meter, then the antenna, first check the SWR, on the scale on the meter to cal/swr mode,adjust it to spec, then while still keyed down turn the dial to SWR,if it is the safe range your ok,then turn the Dial to 10 or 20 watt scale and key the mic. Does it have any wattage? If not suspect the finals, they are located on the back rail, if it does have RF then its the audio chip, its located on the right side rail facing you,closest to you.remove it and replace it with same ....hope this helps....

Cobra 18 wx st for mobile use, ned to switch reg mic for cherokee power mic. need mic diagram for the four pin


You probably don't want to hear this, but the cobra 18 wx st is just about the worst, and most hated radio ever made. Its a very poor radio.

to be very honest with you, you should get rid of that radio, or return it. Then buy a cobra 29 instead,

for proper mic wiring, please reference this page.

Cobra 18 wx st cb problem


Sounds to me like your finals in the rig have blown stopping you using the CB mode, Either that or you have a loose connection on the power output inside the radio.
