Question about Cobra 19 DX IV CB Radio
I took my Cobra 19 DX IV to a CB shop to have it aligned and tuned. Now all my friends that I chat with on CH33 say I am coming in somewhere between CH32 and CH33.
I am taking it back to the shop to be checked (unless someone here can tell me how to fix it).
The original poster said he was turning his Channel Knob while holding his MIC Button. What does that do?
Also, he said he was adjusting his RF Gain and Squelch to help his transmit audio. But those adjustment are for RECEIVE.. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I would definitely take it back for a re check. If the radio took a good bump perhaps it can cause it to drift off frequency. Turning the channel while holding his mic keyed does nothing but just throws a dead carrier. No value what soever. RF Gain is just to improve his reception by either lowering or raising the sensitivity of the receiver of the radio. Squelch is to silence the hissing sound you hear when no one is talking. Care must be taken to not to adjust too much or you wont hear anybody. It wont help his transmit audio at all. Recommend you get another Radio Check from someone else. He could be pulling your leg saying you don't sound good. Best regards and hope this helps some......................John.
