Question about Cobra 29 WX NW ST 40-Channels Base CB Radio
Hi there, as the subject line says, I key in the mike and get 2 red lights. It will rec signals fine but will not transmit. I assume that since I don't have 18 ft of coax that this is the best place to start??
Your post of 2 lights; 1 is to indicate that you are transmitting when keying the mic is normal. The 2nd indicating an antenna warning (or SWR) should be corrected. You are right in starting with the coaxial cable which of course would include the PL259 connector. Verify that there are no breaks, over-bended loop, exposed ground/shield and that the solder of the center wire as well as the braided shield/ground is in order.
If it is a mobile setup, further verify that the antenna mount (except when magnetic) is properly grounded to the body of the vehicle and free from rust/corrosion. In some instances, it is the antenna itself that need checking or even possibly replacement.
Alternately, if the needle doesn't swing to the right side of the meter when the mic is keyed, it is possible that your finals (2SC1306) needs replacement.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
