I have a new cobra 148 with ssb, about 6 months old, while i was away there was a storm, now the radio doesnt work , recieve or transmit, i also have a cobra 29 ltd that wont transmit but it will recieve....


make sure the mic is good. If for some reason the mic went bad, it will not receive or transmit.

As for the one with no receive, it most likely needs a new final.

If lightning hit your antron, it would be in pieces.

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 a new cobra 148 gtl took out of box no transmit or recieve


make sure that your [swr] hadn't changed or went higher than a 1.5, anything higher will interfere with your tranmitting an recieving. other than that with out being there to see an hear your radio this would be the first place to start.
