Question about Cobra 25 LTD 40-Channels Base CB Radio
Your problem is probably the rabbit ears. They are for tv in the 54+
Mhz and CB is 27 Mhz. For simplicity, go to Radio Shack and get a back of the radio indoor antenna. They run under $20. If you want to get more; try a roof antenna or a 1/2 wave cb marine antenna outside.
Hope it helps.3

The older base station was probably peaked and tuned by a CB shop, basically giving it a lot more power. Stock radios very rarely have a full 4watts of power, to tell you the truth. Mine now does 5 1/2 watts and swings to around 20 when I talk. Might be a good investment. Oh, the antenna can't be too big for any wattage. Might want to recheck the antenna's tuning, though...
The truckers wont pop the fuse at all, but I might recommend backing your RF gain down some when they are that close so they dont burn up your receive.

SOURCE: transmitting and receiving
RF gain should be all the way up. Turn the squelch all the way down. Turn the ANL/NB to just ANL.
Turn the dynamic up at least 3/4.
Once you have confirm you can receive and transmit, then you can turn up the squelch up until white noise just stops.
Make sure you are on 19 by the highway. Key up and say break break one nine, can some one give me a radio check please.
you should get a response.
Your RF gain is how much you receive. the higher it is the more you receive. In normal operation there is no need for it ever to be less the all the way on.
Squelch is just to knock out fuzz, and if you only want to hear people close not far. A little less then half way is a basic setting.
the ANL switch is the automatic noise limiter. if you have interference from your vehicle, like engine noise, turning this on will quiet that. If it is extreme engine noise then switch it to NB, noise blanker. It is just a more intense setting.
your dynamic is how loud your audio is. if its low or all the way down, you will not transmit audio loud enough for people to hear. If its a stock radio and has not been tuned, if you turn it all the way up, that is fine.

Its just RF feed back, that's normal, try to re-route the coax, or just turn the FM down, o try turning your modulation down....hope this was helpful....
