Cannot receive weather channel information


Antenna connected? Station off air due to bad weather? Is the 'squelch' set to you hear static, then turn it back just to where it stops hissing? Try that and let me know.

Is the PTP 400 Full 5.4 GHz effected by fog and other weather conditions? Have link that goes down in performance in foggy weather.


How far away is your other antenna?

2.4 GHz signals may be attenuated by up to 0.05 dB/km (0.08 dB/mile) by torrential rain (4 inches/hr). Thick fog produces up to 0.02 dB/km (0.03 dB/mile) attenuation. At 5.8 GHz, torrential rain may produce up to 0.5 dB/km (0.8 dB/mile) attenuation, and thick fog up to 0.07 dB/km (0.11 dB/mile). Even though rain itself does not cause major propagation problems, rain will collect on the leaves of trees and will produce attenuation until it evaporates.

Static on am radio (comes and goes). fm is fine. 99 Subaru Legacy Wagon.


A static on AM is just interference. Similar to operating a mixer when you are watching TV. You would remember the grains in the TV but no audio disturbance because, video is AM transmitted and audio FM transmitted. A static on AM radio could be due to many factors in the car. The ac system, the music system itself or the engine rpm. The solution does not lie in finding out which is creating the noise, it lies in insulation. Check the antenna and change it if needed. That should fix it.

I have a Cobra 21 cb. I just put in a 12v to 19v power supply for a laptop W/GPS. It causes major static continually. What kind of supressor should I use?


with the GPS on, disconnect the antenna from the Cobra 21. if the noise from the GPS is attenuated or disappears then the best you can hope for is to locate the antenna as far away from the GPS as possible and don't use the GPS when you want to listen to the reveiver in the Cobra 21.

AM radio has constant static -- FM is perfect, as is the sound system. The AM radio has no static when engine is not running. Please help


the cause of this is a defective is due to one of the following:
1. Antenna is defective or Antenna coax lead to radio shield ground
2. Antenna ground is dirty or corroded
3. Poor radio chassis ground.

1992 Honda Civic Radio has only static


if the tape player works fine and no static u most likely have a problem with your ground,check to see if your radio is getting good ground and also check the antenna unscrew the two bolts on top of the car and carefully pull the antenna upwards and check the wire connected to a piece of metal where the screw goes (if good) add another ground to your radio.

Cobra 75 wx st


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls a couple of ideas you may want to consider/explore or try/check:
  • PA/CB switch must be to CB;
  • RF Gain max clockwise;
  • Squelch counter clockwise;
  • Volume to your desired level;
  • Mute (off);
  • external speaker/speaker connection;
  • audio amp, verify if there is TX modulation;
  • antenna, antenna cable. SWR should be low.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate this at all. Cheers.

Okay, I have the new Nuvi 880 with the built in FM transmitter. To use it of course I try and find the best unused station available which for me is FM 88.1. The problem is I still get some static coming...


The problem is that these units put out a very low level signal on FM. This is mainly due to restrictions and rules established by the FCC. The levels are such, so that they don't interfere with other nearby equipment or radios.

When you go to touch the unit, your arm is acting like an antenna, making the signal from your Nuvi propagate better to your car's radio.

If you are using a window mount, you are somewhat limited in what you can do. The closer you move the Nuvi to the car's antenna or radio, the better. Just for fun, try positioning the unit on the dash (while sitting still). Can you find a spot where it sits right over the radio that sounds the best with minimal noise? If so, you might want to get a friction mount and put your Nuvi on the dash, right over the radio.

Another thing you can try is getting a plug that fits in the headphone jack, like at Radio Shack, and soldering a couple feet of wire to ground lead of the plug. Plug the plug with the wire into the headphone jack. This is what manufacturers of consumer FM transmitters provide as a means to make an external antenna.

Hi, My first guess with the limited info is, either you have the attenuator turned(which is like an RFgain), or you have a defect in the antenna or coax(if it's mobile.) For the attenuator see pg.66 of your manual.
I assume it's picking up your ham radio when you key it, but at close range it'll pick it up without an antenna.
I hope this helps you sort it out,, Mechanic
