Question about Cobra 148 GTL 120-Channels Base CB Radio

2 Answers

Static When my radio is on I get a surge in static that swings my gauge to 3. This happens consistently every 20 seconds or so. I can be talking to someone and if they dont swing past 3 the static drowns them out. If I am talking to someone that swings anything past 3 it doesnt interfere. Any help would be appreciated Corn_Squeeze2000

Sounds to me like the static burst is coming from the electronic fuel pump that pumps up fuel pressure every so often. Try connecting the hot wire of the radio to another source. Make sure the NB/ANL switch is flipped/turned on. To make sure that is the noise, have CB turned on and flip the ignition switch to the on position right before starting. The fuel pump will pump up right away and you should hear it.

Most radio static is down to poor grounding of the aerial or the set itself. Poor quality HT leads can also do it.

I get static after someone else talks


One of the main causes of static can be a bad battery. If you are using rechargeable batteries you need to replace them every 14-18 months. If you are using alkaline batteries, they have been known not to fully power the radio once your cross the 10 hour mark. Your radio would then be operating in somewhat of a brown out. This would lead to static.

Another cause of static is simply being nearly out of range of the other radio(s).

The burst of white noise at the end of Rx on some radios can be rather annoying. On the basic talkabout radios there is nothing which can be done to solve the problem, other than replacing the radio.

Your phone must be away from other appliances (i.e. microwaves, radios) and computer equipment (i.e. wireless routers, monitors). The phone runs on 2.4GHz which often conflicts with them.
