    I have done all thathe usual stuff. After servicing the the antenna the output went from 1 to 5 watts, so that seems to be fine. the model is a General Electric 40 Channel PLL System model 3-5813B.

    Did you check all of the usual stuff?

    Faulty / grounded / corroded antenna system.

    Squelch is all the way counter-clockwise.

    RF Gain is all the way clockwise.

    If you post the model, I'm sure one of us can find a schematic for you.

Cobra 19 DX IV CB Radio Gets no signal at all


my only idea is the frequency that Canadians transmit/recieve on is different than us down south (in the USA). I know Europe and the UK use a different frequency range so my guess is that Canada uses a different radio frequency range than the U.S. making you unable to communicate with fellow radio users. You may be able to search the frequency range for Canada vs. the U.S. and see if there's a difference. Hope this helps...and again, it's just a thought.
