Question about Cobra 19 DX IV CB Radio
Skip is an interesting phenomenon. When it kicks in full force, it pretty much kills any chance of local talking. Especially if you are on what are called "super bowl channels" these are channels where the big boys run. From 10k watts and up. Here in the USA these channels are 6, 11, and some times 26. If you are on any of those channels, you will hear nothing but them while skip is in effect.
There could be people in your area, but when skip is going you would never know it. And even if you did hear them, how could you know with all the noise going on.
Your radio is most likely setup correctly. If you are hearing the skip, then it is working. Give it a day or two for the skip to let up and give it a try.
I'm not sure how the channels in Brazil, as in the trucker channel. Over hear all of the truckers use 19, so if you are near a major truck route, you can always hear some one on 19.
So when it gets quiet again, go on the channel that truckers in your country/area use, and see if you can hear them/talk to them.
