Question about Cobra Radio Communications
when the unit is power up
the unit is set to receive stations transmitting at the same frequency,
if you cant hear anything watch the meter it shows the relative signal strength of the transmitting stations. you cannot hear anything if there is no antenna connected to the radio.
if you can hear and you can transmit then it would just be the light you are missing.
hope this helps, thanks for using Fixya!

FM reception is weak
What to do
• Extend the power cord as much as possible. The FM antenna is in the power cord.
• Move the power cord to adjust the FM antenna
• If you still have problems with FM reception, you may need an external antenna.
* Call Bose®Customer Service to request one.
The external antenna on your radio is a coax (round) design It needs an adaptor and an antenna which are cheap.
Easy to make, radio shack "F" connector 90 degrees or straight, to 300 ohm wire connections. Attatch a 300 ohm flat ribbon antenna cable to those two screws and plug into radio and see how your reception is. You will need to position the antenna wires to get best reception. I have hid them in back of paintings and so on.
Cheapest solution next to putting an extension cord on radio power cord.
