Question about Cobra 18 WX ST II 40-Channels Base CB Radio
Can tell someone's talking on the radio, because the needle moves, but all I hear is static. Occasionally, I hear someone really talking. Replaced the microphone twice and still can't talk to anyone. The kicker is, the radio worked fine in my last semi. HELP!!!
Agreed, it has to be antenna. If the new truck has shock-mounted mirrors there may be no bond to ground if that is where the antenna mounts. the coax needs to bond to metal at the mount or the SWR will be way out. SWR affects receive just as much as transmit.

You Need to check and set you SWR on the antenna system. You may also have a bad coax or the ant studs ( mounting hardward ) for the antennas may be bad. It definally sounds like an ant/coax problem Good Luck
