Sounds like the dead key might be set to high on the high side and you're not gettin any swing.

Tip

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!!!

Low transmit audio cobra 29 ltd nw


Are you talking about this radio or what others are hearing from your radio?

My friend, no one but the holder of a 1st class FCC radio license is permitted to adjust the input power to the final amp. Further, one needs some pretty technical equipment to accomplish this fine tune adjustment. Failure to properly set this envelope will result in degraded operation and possible failure of your radio.

If you can't live with the present circumstance, get your radio profesionally repaired.

Thank you for your quesiton at FixYa.com-

Are you able to please give me the reset instructions for a symbol scanner? model: LS4278


Hi, I would be happy to assist you in resetting your LS4278, but it would be helpful to know how you are connected. The Set Defaults barcode will reset all of the scanner settings, but it will also cause you to lose the "pair" (communications) between the scanner and cradle. If you try scanning a barcode at this point you will receive a single beep followed by four error beeps. This just means the scanner is not talking to the cradle. Scan the barcode on top of the cradle. The scanner should give a high low high low series of beeps followed by a short low short high. The short low short high indicates the scanner is talking to the cradle again and you are ready to scan.

If you are connected through the USB port and scan a barcode and get one beep, but do not see data on your host try unplugging the black power supply cable from the cradle. Try scanning your barcode again and it should show up on the host.

Cobra 132 recieves good poor send


Poor send? Is your modulation ok?
The biggest hurdle for good coms is the antenna, placement and proper tuning will make or break your CB.
Check your SWR, if you can't check it then another way to get an idea is to use your power meter.
It will show more power when the SWR is high, check you high and low channels for increased deflection. High on channel 40 and low on channel one would mean antenna needs to be shorter and the opposite for channel one. A balanced reading or slightly lower reading in the midband channels would indicate antenna working near optimum.

No sound


Turn on power to both units. Set the sound level to high on the "good" unit. Press the talk button on the 'bad' unit and speak. Can you hear your voice reproduced in the 'good' unit ?

If so the power system is fine, and the problem will be in the receiver setup of the 'bad unit". You are the third problem I've addressed with this model radio. Perhaps a return is in order. You can take the money and get a different model or brand ...and save yourself a lot of troubleshooting that doesn't make good time sense given the low cost of this device.

No output


If you antenna SWR are way out ( too high ) you may have burrned the final or driver up when you hooked it up to do the antenna adjustment. Also be sure to turn the high power switch on to adjust the antenna SWR or the SWR meter won't read correctly, if the RF power is too low. Good Luck
