    "radio lights up even shows when i key up and shows swing"Need to know if the meter swings when you transmit and modulate,or does it just shoe a deadkey with no foward swing? If this is so, I would suspect a loose leg on the audio chip on the pcb.No recieve or no recieve audio? This a new radio? Any work done?

IF YOU CAN RECIEVE THAT IS A VERY GOOD SIGN THAT YOUR SWR MATCH IS OFF....I DONT KNOW IF YOU MATCHED UP YOUR RADIO WITH YOUR ANT.IF NOT YOU CAN BUY A CHEAP SWR METER @ RADIO SHACK...CHECK THAT YOUR COAX CABLE IS OK TRY TO REPLACE THE COAX......GOOD LUCK

Cb transmit noise


Its just RF feed back, that's normal, try to re-route the coax, or just turn the FM down, o try turning your modulation down....hope this was helpful....

Cobra 18 wx st for mobile use, ned to switch reg mic for cherokee power mic. need mic diagram for the four pin


You probably don't want to hear this, but the cobra 18 wx st is just about the worst, and most hated radio ever made. Its a very poor radio.

to be very honest with you, you should get rid of that radio, or return it. Then buy a cobra 29 instead,

for proper mic wiring, please reference this page.

Cb is Keying Down instead of keying up when trying to talk


if you are transmitting fine Don't worry about the meter. Get an external SWR meter, they are better anyway.

Also, make sure the the switch next to the meter is all the way up on s/rf setting. thats for signal power and receive strength.

I can hear others but when i talk noone hears me


Try switching a different mic, sometimes the transmitting wire comes loose inside the connector. If you are handy enough, you can even unscrew those two tiny screws on the end of the mic cord and see if a wire is loose and if so, solder it back into place.

Transmits but doesnt receive


If the meter shows that it's receiving something, the microphone may be the problem. Another possibility is the speaker & plugging an external speaker in would confirm this. Aslo make sure the squelch control is turned all the way to the left (counter-clockwise) & the RF gain is turned to the right (clockwise).

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.
