I have a cobra 142 base, and the receive is all most clear out. where should I start looking for the problem?

Check the RF gain knob. It should be all the way up. If the knob is bad, this could be the problem. You can un solder the wires from this knob, and hook them together to give you max gain, if your receive is back when you do that, the knob is bad.

You can replace the knob, (Call cobra for the part) or you can leave it soldered together, put some heat shrink on it so it doesn't short, and use it like that.

It doesn't really need RF gain.

Now on that radio, the RF gain is on a double knob with the SWR calibration. RF gain is only 2 wires, and the SWR CAL is 3. You would take the 2 wires next to each other and hook them together.

If there is still no receive, then the radio needs a tech. A part has failed in the receive section of the radio in the RFgain section. Probably a resistor lost its value.

Bought a used connex 4600T need info manual please help.bill

Bill what don't you understand about this radio? Its about a 190 watt radio depending on who convereted it. You should always run the mic gain and rf gain all the way up...all the way to the right...if your antenna system is good. The rf power is how much power you want it to hit. Like I said it shoud do up to 190 watts with the rf power all the way to the right. Channel band knob. D on most radios is your basic 40 channels..what most truckers run on it. Then if you go to the left C that will be 1st low B is double low A is triple low go to the right E you're going upstairs 1 and F is double high.E-Tone is your echo. I tell everone leave both around 10:00 depending on your voice TB is talkback this is if you want to hear yourself or use it to set up your echo.10k switch puts you between certain channels...leave this one off. nb/anl takes noise out of radio I would run this on at all times. And its a AM radio will not transmitt on FM don't use on FM and PA is if you put a PA speaker in the back. Hope this helps.

I baught a truck with the CB allready in it it is a general Lee. I am having problems adjusting it to transmitt or Receive

you run your **** gain and rf gain all the way to the right. make sure you're on D witch is you basic 40 channels. Run power on high unless you're running a linear then switch to low. echo leave both on about 11 oclock and leave 10k swith off. this will put you between certain channel.

Have cobra 29wxnwst radio. Truck sat for 3 months

Turn up the RF gain all the way and leave it.

RF gain is basically how open your receive is. There is really no reason ever to have it down unless you are trying to hear only close stations to you.

If you RF gain is up, your mic pins my be oxidized, or mic bad.
Try a different mic, and or clean the contacts in the connectors.

Rf gain has no effect on radio at all/galaxy 44 model

test resistance of the variable resistor ( rf gain) to make sure the pot is not dry use some electrical lube behind the pot to clean internal connections. pot resistance is stamped on the back.
other than that if your receive is week you have most likely a fault in one of the filters or pll
