Question about Cobra 148 GTL 120-Channels Base CB Radio
Brand new in the box, at less than 1.2 to 1 this radio on side band is 6 minutes past centre. poor signal and poor reception. I would not advise anyone to buy this radio. Maked a decent doorstop. Brad Greenaway, canada
Did you put it on a frequency counter? they can be set back on freq. if you know how to set it. how old is it? I would send it back to where I got it and have them fix the problem.

my only idea is the frequency that Canadians transmit/recieve on is different than us down south (in the USA). I know Europe and the UK use a different frequency range so my guess is that Canada uses a different radio frequency range than the U.S. making you unable to communicate with fellow radio users. You may be able to search the frequency range for Canada vs. the U.S. and see if there's a difference. Hope this helps...and again, it's just a thought.

make sure that your [swr] hadn't changed or went higher than a 1.5, anything higher will interfere with your tranmitting an recieving. other than that with out being there to see an hear your radio this would be the first place to start.

SOURCE: Radio will
If the radio is not transmitting, then there is something wrong with either the final transmit transistor, or antenna system.
Have you ever checked the SWR on the antenna? If it was high, over 2, or you never have, you may have burned out the final.
In that case the radio will need a tech.
Its possible there is something wrong either with the antenna or feed line. But then you would still get some RF, and you would see the ant light on, which is an indicator of a BAD swr, and potential danger to the radio's final.
