Re: cb transmitting problem

If you have a power mic the gain might be to high or the mic gain on the radio. Also ground the raido case.

Re: cb transmitting problem

Hello kaelea,


Check your ground wire and by your post I gather that you are user some form of headphone device, I say this because normally the speaker is off when the microphone is keyed. I would also check the controls on the headset if you are using one.


I hope this helps,


Thank you,

I jus was wondering, can the cb radio and the handheld radio transmit on the same channel? Im a security officer and im interested in purchase a cb radio so we can use it at work but i dont know if its...

CB radios and hand-held CB radios can operate on the same channel and be in contact with each other. Other hand-held radios do not operate on the same frequencies and even though they may have channel numbers the channels have different frequencies and will not operate to CB radios.

I have a new cobra 148 with ssb, about 6 months old, while i was away there was a storm, now the radio doesnt work , recieve or transmit, i also have a cobra 29 ltd that wont transmit but it will recieve....

make sure the mic is good. If for some reason the mic went bad, it will not receive or transmit.

As for the one with no receive, it most likely needs a new final.

If lightning hit your antron, it would be in pieces.

Gtl dx will not transmit below 26.955

First off, the 200 GTL DX is a 10 meter radio. Running it on 11 meters (CB) is illegal, as it is not FCC type accepted. If you go below 26.965 mhz, you are outside of the 11 meter band, and operating illegally.12 meters does not start until 24.930, so ultimately, the freq's between 24.930 and 26.965 mhz are restricted even to a licensed amateur radio operator.

Cobra 19 DX IV CB Radio Gets no signal at all

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.
