It could be the battery, the antenna, as in not screwed in far enough, or the radio is defective, or the radio transmitting is not working correctly. If you have two radios, test it in the other direction, does the other radio receave further than 20 yards?

Giving you an exact answer is not possible.

I have a Cobra Marine Mr F75 that is stuck on channel 4 and will not change channels on the radio or by using the handheld reciever??


Try resetting the radio per the user manual by doing a setup procedure as described on page 28. This may clear up the problem. User manual here: https://www.cobra.com/sites/default/files/manuals/MRF75D%20-%20ENGLISH_0.pdf

Can you turn the rf gain pod up for better receiving


Yes you can turn up VR pot inside to recieve max level but will cause noise to be max too. I don't rightfully remember which one does it but I'll refer you to Defcom cb radio mods for a spec sheet
or Snakedoctors cb radio mods google site. Go to these radio mods sites on Google search and type in radio model. It will tell you what Vr inside to turn up RX of RF gain. Turn up modulation and written instruction if you are handy with solder gun how to change a resistor or cap to make it more sensitive recieve. How to replace final stage and resistors to 1/2 watt size for 6 more watts output and spread coils 1/8 inch apart like a comb for 100% microphone loudness or swing output. say 3 watts to 40 watts output. More windshield wiper swing in meter makes loud voice and extends range with Power final boost. Most people prefer to keep a mobile at around 11 watts swing to 45 watts.(but on generic radio meter will show 2 to 5 watts-its not accurate just a cheap indicator you are forward swing). Even though factory says 4 watts FCC hogwash. They come tuned from Cobra with 11 watts to 14-22 watts.Cobra really peaks them babies so competition doesn't beat them out like new louder radios made by Galaxy 55. Even though law says blah blah (corporations bend it)sales pitch Galaxy very heated with Cobra on the game(rich can do what they want)Galaxy is 20 watts factory with big promise to 40 watts dual finals. So Cobra updated and said "screw it we will break the law too" Now Cobra is loud as ever and offering their own super mod versions and dual final radios with 45 to 65 watts output with ranges on SSB & USB of 1500 miles on a strong good outdoor antenna.

Wont trasmit..tryed new mic..worked for 2 weeks now dont work again


If you have never tuned the antenna for best SWR, then you have probably destroyed the radio.

The antenna needs to be tuned for the radio. If this is not done then RF energy that should be transmitted from the antenna does not leave the antenna will be reflected back into the radio and it destroys the final output section of the radio.

It is reparable. You must either send it back to cobra, or take it to a tech. The Final output transistor needs replacing. Possibly more.

After you get the radio fixed, or purchase a new one, read the section in the manual about SWR. It will explain the entire SWR procedure.

If you would like I can post you the procedure as well.

Why does my cobra 148 GTL CB give out a squeeking noise when i trasmit as heard by others receiving me ??


is this a new radio? if so then the voltage change on the vco/pll will cause a squeak. kindda like a cobra 19dx does. also like the old golden eagle squeal .. all due to the voltage being unstable.. now is it that prob or do you have talkback and its loud/bad grounds causing a squeal. that could be the case too. if you have talk back let me know there's a cure for that. contact us..we can put the talkback just lil outtaphase to stop 99% of the squeals in cobra/uniden chassis radios.
