I have a handheld cb radio cobra model: HH-35 that doesn't work
It powers on and off, goes through all 40 channels, it has worked before, but now it doesn't receive anything and i don't know if it sends anything either. I don't even hear any usual loud static, just the hum that its on. could it be the antenna i live near Houston.

I have two Cobra HH-35 WX units available. They are reconditioned, still in the box, and tested but never used. Will sell for both for $30.00 plus 8.98 Priority Mail Shipping. You will have in 2-3 days.

There is no way to make that radio VHF capable, CB radio's operate in the AM band, and most, if not all VHF radio's operate in the FM band. CB radio's are not capable of VHF frequencies either, VHF is considered around 40MHz and above, CB radio's operate between 26.965 MHz and 27.405MHz that is considered 11 meter band HF. CB radio's are not broadbanded enough to cover anything that far away, expecially the newer radio's, as most of them are controlled via a microcontroller and PLL tuning circuit. the 19DXIV is a great little radio, but will never be able to operate in or even around VHF. sorry.
You would be surprised how little people actually talk on CB radios these days. I went through similar struggles a few years ago. Unless you are in a major trucker area, the CB radio is basically silence.
Check out the weather channels (anything on the WX setting) to make sure that your radio is receiving frequencies correctly. If that doesn't work, then it is your box, but I bet that will work.
G'day, I think your problem with the Cobra cb is in the microphone, you should have a plug on the Mic cord end ,try disconnecting this from the CB unit and see if it clears it self. If this does the trick your problem is in the Mic it self, or the cord has a fault in it. However if you still have a problem it may be that the transmitt/ receive relay located in the Cb is stuck on transmitt, sometimes this can be cleared by tapping the case with the handle of a screw driver, place towel on the case first to stop any damage to the case( this doe's not always work) you may in this case need to have it serviced all the best hope I have been of help, John
