Question about Cobra 29 WX NW ST 40-Channels Base CB Radio
Better antenna located higher up.Make sure its 50 feet from the house or other objects & power lines. I just used an Antron A99 17'4 ft antenna at $59 with 50 ft RG213u or RG59 coax on a 30 feet tv pole and got ranges of 20 to 50 miles easy using a small car radio Uniden 76xl in my bedroom on a Radio Shack 12 volt DC 3 amp power supply..In a car a magnet mount in center of roof will do a good job. www.copperelectronics.com has antennas,coax,microphones,radios,power,mics. etc.

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.
