Re: cobra 38wxst was droped in water

The inner screws also need to be removed after you get the back panel off. Also, the antenna is connected with a nut to the case, and the antenna has a wire soldered to the board. They are kid of a trick to get into, but not impossible. Good Luck.

I left the batteries in it, and one of the batteries corroded. how can i take it apart to clean it

One old trick was to use some baking soda on terminals. It will turn terminal black, but you can still use it if terminal is not broken off. If you have soldered in batteries clean an scrape terminal an resolder.

Are there any modification to increase reception and Modulation for cobra 38wxst?

the person is talking about a cobra 38wxst and you guys give him information on a cobra 25,but the information is solid as to what is said Check your SWR ,Make sure your squelch is open,check for dust on the knobs , and then take it to a tech and let him fix it because a receive alignment is more sensitive then a tx alignment.

When docking the headset cobra road trip and activate the ptt who hear me get a ring

  • Hi, I can help. When the microphone/earphone set is inserted in the radio itself the control is automatically turned over to the headset. There are no radio adjustment that need to be done. Just plug it in and use the PTT on the cord of the headset or unplug and use the controls on the radio itself.

  • Many don't know that the Cobra Road Trip and the Cobra HH 38WXST are identical radios. The only difference is the antenna sold with the two radios. The one you have come with a rubber duck style antenna and the HH38 WXST comes with a magnetic car mount antenna. So while the manualfor the Road Trip is hard to find the 38 WXST is not. Here is a copy of the manual

  • Read through the manual a couple times and feel free to get back to me with any questions you have.

  • Hope this helps.

Finals for a Cobra 85 Home Base CB and hom many?

Not familiar with the 35......If it is a ssb radio it will have a pre driver and a pair of finals. they are located on the right side towards the back or along the rear of the chassis to the right. You may have the type of circuit that has a protector diode piggy backed ..they could cause that tyoe of failure also, but in the years I have serviced radios they do not fail too often. I WOULD SUSPECT THE FINALS.
