Cb radio transmitting problems

Check your microphone and the SWR on the antenna.
SWR checks or bench checks should be free at a RadioShop or CBshops, and normally they will only charge for parts needed.

I have a Cobra CB Radio and was wondering if I have it on SRF or SWR or CAL

S/RF/SWR/CAL SWITCH. When in the S/RF position, the meter swings
proportionally to the strength of the received signal. When transmitting,
the meter indicates relative RF output power.
When in the "CAL" position, the SWR meter can be calibrated by adjust-
ing the "SWR CAL" control to the "CAL" mark on the meter face.
When in the "SWR" position, the standing wave ratio is measured.

You will want to operate on S/RF position.

Well ive got a cobra 29 with a RF85X installed on it, it worked great for awhile then all of a sudden it stop transmitting took it to cb shop and repairman found the problem was a cap or diode which should...

Have you checked the SWR's.. also some caps help with the roll off of stray emissions . hopefully he took out the right one. also if you have low amperage going to the radio. it will cause problems. normal cobra 29 2-5amps and the factory pwr cord is adequate for that amperage now your pulling 80watts + make sure you have more amps to handle it. watts/13.8volts=AMPS needed. soo say if your radio is doing 100w/13volts you will need 7.7amps basically in theory.. amps- good grounds- good swr's that shop should of checked your antenna for free.. we do here in texas.

Need a shop

You may have ant. trouble if the SWR is hi
that feeds power back into the radio and
could damage it,lets hope not start with a
good ant.and maybe the radios are not hurt
to bad.
Good Luck

Low transmitting range on Cobra MRF55

Hi dstrand, sorry you are having a problem. I will need some more info if you can. Is this radio in a base situation or mobile? Have you had any work don recently? Have you changed anything on the system? (Microphone, antenna, coax, etc)

Haave you checked your swr recently/ If yes, did you use a seperate meter or did you use one built in the radio?

Hope to hear from you soon.

No transmit or recive but works on pa mode

does this radio have freq? if so you could have turned on causing
a miss alignment with antena.. check all the switches move into different positions and keep keying up, good antena connection?
