You could peak and tweek it to a legal limit. A local CB Shop should be able to help if they do repairs. Good Luck

The problem may be in the audio output chip mounted on the chassis, also! there is also a small capacitor located next to the audio chip that has known to be a problem, finally sub the speaker for another, often a source of trouble.

On my uniden pro 510e I can transmit but I cant receive all I get back is static got any clues?


Which radio are you referring to, the Pro 510e or the Pro 510xl?

In any event, to transmit and receive clearly depends on your antenna, it's location and it's surroundings and HEIGHT.

Radio waves on these radios depend mainly on line of sight and propagation factors, If you have an indoor antenna, that could be the problem, if it's an outdoor fixture, it needs to be in such a position so that the coax cable isn't being interfered with by another electrical fixture, the Height of the antenna, is most important, the higher, the better, taking in all these factors and a bit of try this and see approach should find a solution to your reception/transmition issues. That's part of the fun of setting up a base radio, experimentation, configuration and the results you want will be worth the effort.

I hope this has been helpful for you.

Cheers, Peter

Cx80, what does the code "rx" mean on the display

  • TX = Transmit. RX = Receive. Does your needle move when you key the mic? Does it modulate when you talk in the mic? Do you have an inline watt/SWR meter inline? What kind of a set up do you have? Mobile? Base? Get back to me if you want further help.

There is no output when transmitting the radio says rf power output fail on the radio check

You can try to replace the final transistor and see if that helps. Do you have receive? Plug an external speaker into the PA and switch the CB to PA and key down. If you hear yourself that eliminates the voice chip. Always make sure you check your SWR and maintain below 1:1.5 no higher than 2. Any further questions of comments let me know.

Static noise in my cb radio

A lot of times the "static" Is actually a loos connection in the microphone or a dirty micke gain control. Radio shack sells a cheap tuner cleaner if you know how to take the covers of and find the mic gain control, spray it in the little slot in the control( be generous) move the knob back anf forth several times. Also if you have another mike wired for cobra, try it and see if it helps. Those two solutions fix 98 percent of the problems. If it doesn't, please let me know. I am very good with cobra radioes and am sure we can solve this problem.
Good Luck. If this so;ution helps, please rate me.

I have no reciving in a cobra 29 ltd chrome

Bad switch. It's that simple. The factory switches are crimp together junk. You may be able to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to softly squeeze the case of the switch together to correct the poor contact in side of the switch, but, if it gets a lot of use you may need to replace it altogether. Or try adjusting
