Re: frustrated


For some reason, your posted DX40V is not listed among the Galaxy CB Products.

You can visit their website and check the product listing. You can also try viewing their Product Line page to compare the front panel features. You can also mail in your concern/request to

Additionally, you can post back with what features you want information on by naming them such as NB/ANL, RF Gain, RF Power, SWR Alert, etc.

Hope this be of initial help/idea to you. Pls post back as requested.

Good luck and kind regards.

My cb has no incoming sound when key is on but whe started lots of engine noise?

It's not grounded good. Also, make sure your battery to the vehicle is grounded good to the frame. Check that your CB is hooked into an accessory power switch, in other words one that provides power when the key is on but vehicle hasn't been started yet.

My name is kyle my cobra 200gtl face"nightwatch"plate went out.. yes i had it tested.. the cb shop say he dosn't have any in stock.. where can i get one?

You can check out e-bay. I have seen them on there. You can Google Cobra200 GTL Night Watch faceplate this though. I have done this before. Google CB shop. Don't matter where they are and see if they have a 200 GTL Night Watch face plates (both pieces) in a parts radio laying around. You may be surprised. Let me ask this, what went out on the faceplate? The cord or the leds? You can buy leds that change just like that on the net and simply replace them. Good luck to you. They are pretty radios and who can go wrong with Cobra?

Cant hear anyone unless they are close, no one responses to me, dont think they can hear me. I am using ngp firestick, 45 ft rv, antenna is on top of it. the cables are tight, not sure why, but its...

have the swr's checked on the antenna. It should be free at any cb shop if not dont trust them. that should be a service to the public for you they provide... make sure the antenna is clear from any metal objects near it.

Sounds like you could have a bad soilder joint in the radio. If you hit the top or bottom of the radio does it help? If so its soilder. You match your antenna to your truck not the radio. You might want to recheck it.

Have cobra classic 29 nightwatch. have good antenna, good coax, sri's under 1 but I can't hear allot of answers back over the road without someone closer telling me what what said

Try making sure the RF gain is up all the way. Make sure all connections are good and tight, use the best antenna you can get. I love the 102 inch steele whip myself, just depends on what vehicle it would be on. conditions here the last few months have been pretty good for 10 meter ham and other ham bands, pretty bad for cb because so much skip/

I cant ajust my cb for talking

Turn it to channel 20, flip the switch to CAL, key it up and tune it by the SWR knob to the set position, which it a small red triangle. With the mic still keyed, flip the switch to SWR and see where it reads. If its over like 2 on the meter its your antenna tuning. You can complete the rest of the test by doing the same on 1 and 40. But if your that far off you can do the calibrate test all day long and never get it right. Ask one of the other drivers to take a look in between loads or something like that. Its more than likely either improper antenna tuning or a ground plane issue. Not a big deal just frustrating.

Cobra 29 NW LTD does nothing

Why do you have to fix it? If the local CB shop looked at it last then take it back to them its their problem.
