Do you leav the cobra micro talk walkie talkies on when charging


Also, never transmit with them in the charging cradle. I know, lots do but you risk ruining the radio beyond repair.

My cobra walkie talkie doesn't work after 2 miles


You didn't include the model number of the radios, but I suspect you're referring to Family Radio Service (FRS) / General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) two way hand held radios. The FRS /GMRS types are limited to just 1/2 watt. Base GMRS type radios are limited to 5 watts. FRS is limited to Ch 1 - 14. Ch 15 - 22 are GMRS only, and require an FCC license to transmit. You can read more about FRS on Wikipedia.

Many FRS / GMRS two way radios claim incredible distances on the packaging. I've seen some that claim 15+ miles. Given the low power (.5 watt) that they are limited to transmitting, claims such as those would be under the most optimal of conditions. I can assure you that you or I would never encounter those conditions unless we were in some sort of radio laboratory / testing space designed to obtain these crazy distances. In other words, even in optimum "real world" conditions; these radio should only be expected to work when separated up to only several "unobstructed line of sight" miles (such as across open water of a lake, along a beach, etc. The range of these same radios will be reduced significantly when operated indoors, outside between buildings, where blocked by rocks, trees, metal, etc. The only reason you may have reduced range could be due to a power level selector switch that has been set to reduce the output power of the radio. Other than that, I think you'll find a couple of miles is about all you're gong to get.

Good luck!

I got a Cobra cxt275 for Christmas and i can't get the maximum range i can't get 4 miles with it is there a way to change it that i can get 20 miles like it says in the owners manual


Yes you can. If youre using it on certain channels (using the FRS frequencies) you will only get about 4 miles. FRS stands for "Family Radio Service". If you use the GMRS frequencies it will broadcast at higher watts (verses lower watts on FRS). GMRS stands for "General Mobile Radio Service" which you need a license to broadcast over. frequencies for both can be found here: http://gmrsfrequencies.com/gmrs-frequencies-chart.html

However to go on the channels that use GMRS you need a FCC call sign or ID license. you must call out your ID number every 15 minutes to be allowed to broadcast any sort of transmission or you can be fined or jailed (so they say). People sometimes dont obey those rules and the FCC will sometimes geo locate your transmissions and pin point your exact location. A 1st offense can be light to severe depending on what you're doing (pirating radio, blabbing, misusing the channels, using it without a license, using too many call tones, abuse, etc.)
Im guessing you might not understand this in the first place. when you buy radio walkie talkies, they all say inside the manual that you need a FCC license to operate it on GMRS mode, IF its GMRS compatible which today most walkie talkies are. a set of channels is designated for GMRS use and regular use of a walkie talkie has a set of channels it uses for your goofing around or just experimenting.
hope this helps.

I have the cobra micro talk with rechargeable batteries my workers plug them up every night and get them in the morning but some arestill saying low battery, does the walkie talkie need to be turned off...


they charge better if they are turned off. since they do not have a paid dedicated channel, signals can

still be received by any walkie talkie using the same channel, and can deplete the charging process

to the radio. good luck!

I can't get my walkie talkie to go it's full 20 miles its only reaches maybe 3 miles or so it dont make any scence to me. also how can i comunicate with cb's in semi's


The distance claims made by FRS/GMRS radio manufacturers are fairy tales. The frequencies that these radios operate on are line-of-sight only, meaning that ANYTHING between the radios (buildings, hills, trees, etc.) will block the signals. Unless you're transmitting from one hilltop to another, with nothing between the two, 2 to 3 miles is the maximum effective distance for any of these radios.

On your other question, FRS/GMRS radios and CB radios operate on different frequencies bands, so you cannot communicate between the two types of radios. In order to communicate with CB radio operators, you will need a CB radio.

We have lost manual for cobra microtalk walkie talkie & don't know how to turn on or use.


I couldn't locate your specific model, but all of the Microtalk series radios seem to be basically the same as far as operations. Follow the link below to a manual that you can download/print -- it should work fine with your radios:

How do you turn them on? Batteries are charged.


I couldn't locate information specific to your model, but on most of the Microtalk radios you push and hold the MODE/POWER button (may or may not be labeled MODE) to turn the sets ON and OFF. This is normally the top button to the right of the display.
