Take to a CB shop. It is possibly just a bad mike cord.

    Another quick check is just plug in a mike from another Cobra CB that you know works. If still doesn't work with a good mike, problem is in the CB.

Why does the channel change when I key the mike?

wrong mike is plugged to radio , many radios have the option to change the channels via two buttons on mike , unfortunately the mike connectors are pretty standard so they all hook right in easy , but that doesn't mean it's making the right connections inside , a good radio shop (there are still a few around if you look 4 them) will be able to rewire your mike to work on that radio if that's what u want to run

Its a cobra 25ltd when i key the mike sometimes it hangs keyed up and does it with defferent mikes so the mike is not my problem.

take some electrical spray cleaner and lightly spray the inside of the radio where the mic plugs in. could also be a keying diode.

Have a sequel when keyed up

If this is a powered mike the modulation is set to high. If you have a standard mike check your settings on the radio, if that does not help sub another mike.

Cobra 29 nw when you key the radio the swr meter doesnt move and if you move the swicth to cal you can adjust it with out keying the mike but has good recive any help would be good thanks dwayne

To check the SWR, you put the swicth on CAL and key the mike with mike gain turned down all the way,then calabrate it to the meter on the CAL scale,then swicth it to SWR before you unkey the mike, then what ever the needle falls back to, that is your SWR reading.

Uniden 520xl makes humming noise when mike is keyed

if you have a power mic , you might have it turned up to high. next make sure you have a good ground on your antenna. if that is ok and you still have the same problem have the swr checked. this should fix the fm radio noise.
