I cannot hear other people


check that the rf gain is set at maximum, also, I would check antenna and coax for damage/misinstallation. if these seem fine, you may have a receiver failure and need to service the rig

Handheld Radio Shack CB radio TRC-230 I can hear people but no one can hear me


First, lets make sure that the unit does transmit. Get a power meter and see how much power it transmits. If no power is being radiated, you need to have a technician check out the unit.
If you have power then pick a less crowded time to test out if anyone can hear you. Other people with more powerful equipments can only be a problem when you are transmitting on the same channel and both of you happen to transmit at the same time all the time. Chances are remote that this is your problem. Good luck. es

Hi Walter,

When you're out riding with your mates, how close to the person you are trying to talk to is from you on the road?

If you are within 2 metres of the person you are trying to contact, neither they nor you will hear each other, keep at least 5 or more metres from each other and you should be able to chat with each other, remember that radio waves need room to move in before they are receiveable.

These units are low powered, that is to say no more than 1 watt rf output power, so the most distance that these radios can transmit to is about 5 kilometres line of sight only.

I hope this helps

Regards,
Peter

I have a Cobra 19 here in Northeast Brazil. I have it in my car. I can only hear an awful lot of 'skip' and voices in the distance, nothing that seems close to home. Is that because there is no-one close...


Skip is an interesting phenomenon. When it kicks in full force, it pretty much kills any chance of local talking. Especially if you are on what are called "super bowl channels" these are channels where the big boys run. From 10k watts and up. Here in the USA these channels are 6, 11, and some times 26. If you are on any of those channels, you will hear nothing but them while skip is in effect.

There could be people in your area, but when skip is going you would never know it. And even if you did hear them, how could you know with all the noise going on.

Your radio is most likely setup correctly. If you are hearing the skip, then it is working. Give it a day or two for the skip to let up and give it a try.

I'm not sure how the channels in Brazil, as in the trucker channel. Over hear all of the truckers use 19, so if you are near a major truck route, you can always hear some one on 19.

So when it gets quiet again, go on the channel that truckers in your country/area use, and see if you can hear them/talk to them.

there may be a very low noise level. If the noise level is low you will hear almost nothing. You need to go on ch 19 and drive near a major interstate.

Key up and say, "Break one nine for a radio check" and a trucker will come back and tell you its working. If you hear him okay, then your radio is working fine.

Some days, background noise is heavier and lighter then others.

How do you properly set the settings for normal use on the Connex 3300


I am guessing that you are talking about getting it to talk on the FCC Citizens band. I am not too firmiliar with connex, but this will work with any radio with expaned channels.

Usually you use a frequency counter to see what frequency you are on when you are playing with the bands.If you do not have a frequency counter you can find the CB this way.

If its in a mobile, or you are not really far from a highway where big rigs travel, you can flip to channel 19 on the channel sellector then flip through the bands checking each time to see if you are on the CB 19. When you start to hear truckers or you get a radio check from a trucker your on CB 19. You can always ask the person, "this is 19 right"?

I recomend geting a frequency counter.

New Cobra 29 ltd


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me". If I may clear up your concern:
  • you have two CB radios, one is a Cobra 29LTD and the other?
  • both have received and both do not transmit;
  • you have two trucks, one with a Firecracker 1000 antenna, and the other?
In any case and initially, TX (transmit problems) could be caused by:
  • defective PTT/mic;
  • defective finals/drivers;
  • defective PL-259 connector/RG58 Cable;
  • antenna grounding/SWR;
  • other electronics internally
Please check the above. You may need an SWR meter, a watt meter and a DVM/VOM to perform the tests.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

A number of things....faulty speaker (you can scratch test this with a torch 1.5 volt cell....cell pos goes to 1 speaker terminal
and cel neg goes to other speaker terminal..you can conect it any way around with flying leads from the cell...just keep touching the terminal with one flying lead...you will hear a scratching sound in the speaker) have your mike checked...test the tx/rx relay on the circuit board for tx/rx switching, or, a failed
driver transister in the output stage....the list is many

Codra 29 nw ltd classic


For the money,the Cobra 29 nw/st is just as good if not better than a Galaxy. Cobra is more durable by far. I have had 3 of these cobra's in the last 30 years. Only had to replace the last one because the tractor got hit by lightning.
Sure would not pay big money for a name.
