They may also have a better setup than you have. Get another CB'r to set closer to you and try to talk to them first. Chances are you just aren't getting out as far as you'd like. To remedy this you need a better system, ie radio, booster, antenna. And make sure everything is thorougly grounded especially the antenna.

Make sure your mic is plugged in and working... And that a mute button is not depressed.

When my wife and I travel in different cars we like to use the CB. She uses the handheld, I have a CB in my truck. When transmitting I know she is talking but it is all garbled. She hears me fine.

who is transmitting if it is someone else and you are hearing garbled it could be because they are using single side band on their A.M. CB radio .which your radio cannot detect.

Get or have someone Set the SWR's on your antenna.That is the first thing you should always do before even talking on the radio.. Check the antenna.
You will need an SWR meter to check your antenna. FIRST.
I would find help at a local cb shop.. They SHOULDN"T CHARGE to help you SET the swr. only if you need a part or something ..
I don't charge to SET SWR"s .. only if the cust needs a insulating washer or another antenna, or new coax, so-239 etc... I would be glad to help you.. let me know if we can -- CB Shop Temple, TX

Cb puts out good sound but when someone try to talk to me it all you hear is static

same thing sometimes happens to me. Usually it is because the person who is talking to you might have a weaker antenna. Sometimes people put a very strong transmitter with them and talk to people but you cant talk back.
So really they can't hear you good either. Just because you are too far away.

Ref. Cobra 29 Radio: Can talk out and be heard but when someone is talking to me, sometimes I cannot hear them or it has a lot of static. Have tried everything. Please make suggestion.

HI, my name is John. Try putting the RF GAIN to MAX,also the squelch, check the antenna connections, have someone check your SWR, they can do it at Radio Shack for free, or a CB shack. If that does not help, let me know and we will go further with it....hope this was helpful...oh, and turn on the NB or the NBL switch..

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
