    I can hear others really good, but I can't tell if i'm getting out. No one will reply when I ask for a check.

Don't worry, I know my cb gets out and still people do not want to give radio check much at all. If you have a buddy with a cb set up, swing by his place and do a distance check between you two. The only other way to tell if you are getting out, without a radio check, is to have a meter inline to see if you are transmitting.

I can no longer send or receive anything but people can hear me key up but that is all and my ant light is on


Check you swr's .. sounds like you have High swr's if its not txmiting.. Have the SWR's checked.. should be free at any good radio shop.. when that ant light comes on do not talk on it.. it will damage the radio over time..

My cobra 29 ltd is in a ford truck with a over head camper. i put a magnet mounted wilson 1000 watt ant (4ft.) on top of the cab. I cannot get any squelch to work I did a radio check i believe i was heard...


Assuming you don't have the manual,basic controls for receive are to make sure the switch next to the meter is set to s/rf,switch for cb/pa is set cb,knob for rf gain is at max, squelch knob is fully counterclockwise..squelch can be adjusted if ya don't want to hear static but will start cutting out weaker signals.If none of the above works,try plugging in an external speaker to the jack on the back of the radio,if ya still don't hear anything,check that antenna coax is screwed in tightly in back of the radio.Next step after all that would be the microphone,is the stock mic,power mic..if it is the original stock mic that has not been rewired in any,then I would suggest taking radio to qualified cb repair shop,bring mic with you to shop so they can check it too,in fact I would bring the truck also so they can check antenna and adjust it if needed...Good luck

Cb radio


As for me ,the Wilson 1000 or Wilson 2000 are the best mobile antenna for a mobile. I have out talked a lot of base antennas with them, just put it on the top of car in the center or trunk, or middle of cab of truck, with a good SWR and you are talking and receiving. great antenna. ...hope this helps..

Can't talk about 2 miles ,swr is good


If your talking at least 2 then it sounds like it is the antenna. Any antenna should talk 10-12 miles on a good day, no matter what radio you're using. So I'd get a second look at that system.

I also have another cobra 29 ltd classic and it works fine but i cant talk or hear what other factory cb's can hear, it is supposed to be tuned and peaked and i have a wilson 2,000 antenna, and i cant talk...


nearly all problems are caused by poorly tuned or untuned antennas. a good antenna system with a cheap stock radio will out perform a great tuned radio with a bad antenna system any day of the week. if you dont believe me, check the firestik antenna website's tech notes. or wilson's tech notes.

Galaxy DX959 CB radio reception and broadcast


You Need to check and set you SWR on the antenna system. You may also have a bad coax or the ant studs ( mounting hardward ) for the antennas may be bad. It definally sounds like an ant/coax problem Good Luck

Poor reception


Sounds as though You have a bad antenna system ( may be bad coax ). Unless there is infact something wrong with the radio ( this is unlikey) you need to have the SWR's ( Standing Wave Ratio ) checked and trouble shoot the antenna problem. Although the ST seems to be ( In my opion ) the worst recieve radio Cobra could develope, they normally work to a good standard. As for the meter not working, this may also be lack of a good signal from the ant problem. If infact the antenna and coax is good, then take a close look at the output ( final ) transistor. If it's shorted, it doesn't receive well nor does it transmit well.
Good Luck
