If there is static noise, then it's probably not the weather board. We have had something like this happen in our area....

The closest weather station to here up and quit transmitting. The transmitter died after years of use. So all of a sudden there was not weather station. It was out for months.

If there is no noise at all, then there is probably something wrong with the weather board. I don't mess too much with weather boards my self. You could look at the weather channel selection knob and look and make sure all the wires are connected, also the switch to turn on weather.

Testimonial: "thanks for the response ill open it up and take a peak at the wires, but i think its something in the board"

    i am getting nothing, but the switch works because the LED switches to orange which it always did even when the weather worked, plus we have another weather radio the works just fine when tuned to the same channel mine is

With my cobra 29 wx nw st I can not pick up any weather channels. I have the k30 antenna. Do I need a dual band antenna?


Do you hear static when you turn on weather? If so there are just none in range of you. There are not weather radio stations everywhere. You would not use a dual band antenna on any CB. Only an antenna designed for the 11 meter band. Which is the 27mhz CB radio band.

You can go here and see if you have NOAA All hazards weather radio coverage in your area.

If the CB radio is working otherwise it is most likely that there is just not a NOAA transmitter near you.

My uniden bearcat 50 channel 800mhz stop the police,fire ect.. and only gives me weather.. why? can you help ?


  • You can try pressing "Manual" and then "Scan" or "Band" buttons from the weather setting to get you back to scanning the police, fire,etc.
  • Make sure you don't have a WX (Weather) frequency programmed into on of the regular 50 channels or the scanner will continue to stop every time around as it will pick up the WX frequency.
  • Make sure you have your scanner programmed as well.

The weather/alert light stays on when got it the switch on cb, is the light supose to stay on? The light blinks when given out a weather alert, but no alarm goes off.


Normally the lights are on when close to a weather beacon and theres a warning of some kind. but i think there a light thats stays on just to let u know its on the wx band. What radio is it? cobras and galaxytypes lights are green showing that you are rx-ing a signal. some radios lights turn orange color when on the wx band.

I have the GXT850VP4 The problem is I lost the owners manual and now the one radio shows a flashing picture of something like a storm cloud.I have no idea what it is or how to remove it Thanx

If you click on the above it takes you through to the manual for your radio.

If you go to p6 NOAA weather (wx) band icon is what you are asking about.If this is showing it indicates the weather band mode.

Hope it helps!

My cb transmits with a very weak signal and won't recieve anything. The weather band recieves with no problems. I couldn't even pick up a signal on my SWR meter but a friend of mine tested it on his home...


There are a few things that could be wrong. If there is something wrong with the mic, you may not hear anything on the radio. but weather will work.

Other then that, the receive section of the radio could be blown.

Try a new mic, and if it doesn't work, then there is something blown in the radio. It needs a tech.

Wx stations disappeared


They did not put all the plugs back in from the weather board. Part of what has to be fiddled with is underneath the weather board.

Open the bottom cover where the speaker is, on the right side you will see a board separate from the main board. Look for any plugs unplugged. Its probably one that got over looked.

If there are no plugs out, who ever you took it too may have turned something they should not have. most likely its a plug. Its probably the plug that runs the audio into the radio from the weather board. its working, the audio just isn't getting to the rest of the radio.

there are about 3 or 4 plugs from the weather board to the main board of the radio.

Cobra 18 wx st cb problem


Sounds to me like your finals in the rig have blown stopping you using the CB mode, Either that or you have a loose connection on the power output inside the radio.
