Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio
I have my CB all installed and ready to go as a base station here at my house. But all I get is electrical noise when powered on and I have to turn the squelch way up high just to get it to go away. I've done radio checks and I can't pick the radio up from my car. I even tried my handheld CB and sat right next to it and received a very weak signal. I have even moved the base station a few times to see if that would work. This is a brand new radio which replaced a broken one (actually broken for sometime) but I never had this issue in the past. Now I have it connected via DC-AC adapter, could this possibly be the cause?
I dont know what AC DC adator your using. you should look into a 12V power supply. or plugging that into a RF canceling power strip, like a monster power strip. TV's that are on or other appliances may cause high noise levels on the CB, make sure your coax is good, your antennas good, and all jumpers are good. its hard to tell with out looking at it, but do a quick once over of the system.... you are using a base antenna right? if not you need to create radials for a mobile you plan on using for a base.
Make sure the connectors on the coax are all on right, this causes problems a lot of the time. sometimes even brand new coax have bad connectors installed.
