Question about Cobra Mr F75b Marine Vhf Radio Fixed Mount 25watt
I have an icom m304marine fixed mount vhf with a shakespeare 5' antenna. seems the unit receives very few transmissions. weather channel comes in strong on portable vhf but is staticy on fixed mount. the other day, i monitored an emergency call from a boat less than a mile away and was very scratchy. marine police were conversing with that boat, they were also about a mile away and i never heard their transmissions. another boater told me he heard the entire conversation between those parties. he too was less than a mile from me but for some reason my radio didnt pick it up. i was expecting better performance from the unit. i routinely use a vhf on land for work and am familiar with their limitations. all connections were done as per instructions...any thoughts??
Sound like you have an antenna issue. Try a different antenna with coax. If the problem is still there, than you have a problem with the radio. Icom makes really good marine radios but you could have a defective one.
