Question about Cobra 18 WX ST 40-Channels Base CB Radio

Cobra 20 Plus CB radio

I have an older cobra 20 plus that I installed in my pickup this past weekend and when I turn it on it just scrolls through the channels at will and wont stop. I can press the volume button and it goes to ch 9 (and stops) but starts scrolling again when I press the volume button again. Saturday when I hooked it up it seemed to work ok. Sunday when I went to try a radio check it starts to scroll uncontrollably. What gives?

Facts about Cb radio.


a Cb(Citizens Band) radio usually only broadcast on frequencies 26.965 to 27.405 megahertz. It is for mostly short range use 3 to 20 miles range. It comes with legal power of 4 watts. Ranges average about 5 miles. Don't expect big results off this little low-power Am transmitter. A basic 40 channel radio, Microphone, and "Magnet Mount" antenna plus 12 volt Dc 5A power supply will suffice. Place the Magnet mount on a metal file cabinet inside your house. hook up the Radio Shack 12 volt 3-5 Amp power supply to your 40 channel radio, Say Uniden pro510xl or Cobra 19 plus mini compact about $39 for these types. A $20 Radio Shack magnet mount. Turn on radio an talk. If you live in the city near lots of friends who have one too. You can talk on a private channel like Ch#40 and talk all night. The waves get quieter at night and extend farther into the Ionesphere;conditions are favorable 8pm to 12am. You should talk loudly within 5-7 miles easy. I like friends nearby; who live within 3 miles of me. Don't expect Long Distance with these radios. Unless you buy a big 1000 Watt Rf Linear an Tower 100 ft. with big Antennas costing $10,000. But remember the FCC will knock on your door and may give you 5 years $10,000 fines for anything of Linear amps 1000Watts. Just stick with basic tune and adjust,power mics(Cobra sells best). Talk with friends about fishing,hunting,gardens,tools,cars,women etc. Have Fun!!!

The wiring came off and don't know howe they go by color it'got5 places to salder wires are r/b/or/b


If your asking about a Cobra radio then these links will have the pin-outs plus wiring color code for different mic's.
I had to guess what you was asking for as your question was kinda vague. And a Cobra 29 is a 4 pin mike, not 5 pin.
The 148 - 142 were 5 pin. I'll include it also.

Want to disconnect the bleep altogether on my cobra 148 gtldx


If this is a stock cobra 148 gtl 40 channel am plus side band, they don't to my knowledge come with a built in r beep. Some roger beeps are instaleed through the transmit circuit on the mic, so if not in the know Don't try to fix it.Some microphones have a beep built in. I used to install beeps on these radios using the pa/cb switch to turn them on. also try the nb switch or the swr/rf switch.

Check the mike plug to make sure that none of the wires have broke off.I would also check the mike cable with an ohm meter.
