This is a typical indication of the finals being blown. Probably have to take it to a shop, but it would be expensive compared to the value of the radio

Take the cover off, hook the antenna up and turn the unit on. Take a pencil with the eraser end and press around on the circuit board, look for cold solder joints....hope this helps..

CB channel 19 is one of the most frequently used; it is unofficially designated as a "highway information" channel. It is not always hot, however. It is possible you may have your squelch control set too high. If you cannot even hear static, this may be the case. If you can, the channel may just be empty. Try scanning up and down the band until you find something.

SOURCE: With my cobra 29 wx nw st I can not pick up any

Do you hear static when you turn on weather? If so there are just none in range of you. There are not weather radio stations everywhere. You would not use a dual band antenna on any CB. Only an antenna designed for the 11 meter band. Which is the 27mhz CB radio band.

You can go here and see if you have NOAA All hazards weather radio coverage in your area.

If the CB radio is working otherwise it is most likely that there is just not a NOAA transmitter near you.

I have a cobra 29 with echo, tweeked and tune. I can transmit strong and I hear those who speak to me but I dont have any static like you do with a new radio. Is this something I need to worry about as Im...


Make sure the squelch is turned all the way to the left, the RF GAIN is turned all the way to the right. The cobra 29 has a very good noise blanker, Turn the ANL/NB switch to off, You will probably hear a Lot of static, As long as you have a good ground on the radio and antenna, and your SWR is 1.5 or lower, you need not worry about static.

Can not get static out of radio i have a cobra 29 with weather channel the squ knob seem 2 b not working sometimes can u help me


Turn the squelch down, and the RF gain all the way up.

You need to realize that some times, there is not a lot of noise out there. Right now lately there has been due to skip. But it does die down. When you hear a lot of noise for a while, then it goes away, it messes with your head. You don't hear anything, but that's because its quite out. I would test it by talking to some one on the radio. If you can hear them just fine even though you don't hear a lot of static, then its just quiet out.

Hello ilatapy,
Welcome to FixYa.
My name is John, and I will be helping you with your issue.
Make sure that your antenna is grounded good to the body of the vehicle.
Check the connection in the back where the antenna plugs in.
Put your channel selector on channel 19 and make sure the Weather button
is not pressed in. Turn the RF GAIN to MAX, MIC GAIN to MAX .
If you still have issues, let me know! We are here to help you!
Comments and Testimony,s are always welcome here.
Thanks for choosing FixYa today and in the future.

Bad static


The Cobra 20 NW ST Wx is ( in my opion ) a very poor receiving radio. The ST is a bummer in all Cobra radios. The Static is apparent for the atmospheric conditioons and definally power lines and any high voltage will be picked up. When I get a customer with similiar complaints ( and there are a bunch ) I normally recommend that we turn the receive senativity down a bit. Sorry for this advise.
