Cobra 19 DX IV CB Radio Gets no signal at all

I have tried channel 1 to 40 and Im not able to get a signal to transmit (CB always shows busy signal ) . Even with a signal booster Im unable to get a signal. I am able to hear people on some of the channels ... But there all the way down in the USA ... AKA im from Canada.

Any ideas how I can fix this problem ?

My only idea is the frequency that Canadians transmit/recieve on is different than us down south (in the USA). I know Europe and the UK use a different frequency range so my guess is that Canada uses a different radio frequency range than the U.S. making you unable to communicate with fellow radio users. You may be able to search the frequency range for Canada vs. the U.S. and see if there's a difference. Hope this helps...and again, it's just a thought.

Tip

Enhance your audio transmit


i advice to use a Desk Microphone whenever at your Home or Office, it enhance and make your audio clearer and most of all louder, even if your Signal is weak , having a Loud and Clear audio will perform better than a strong signal with a Stock Audio. Monitoring stations will hear and be amazed with a small signal but a loud audio.

suggested mics like Turner plus two, Turner sidekick, and the famous Astatic Microphones

it can be also connected to Echo Chamber to provide nice effects.

most of all, the antenna, ..no matter what radio, the one with a good antenna performs better, than a setup with booster having poor antenna installation. typical SWR is 1,1 to 1.3, if you can get 1.5 its good but 1.0 is best. Good grounding is also important.

for Omni , i suggest a Golden Penetrator antenna , it is a 5/8 wavelenght Vertical Antenna ,

a 2 element Quad or a 3 element Yagi Antenna for directional one.

and a good Regulated Power Supply too, must have at least 6A minimum,

higher is better.

Uh400sx shows on screen as every channel busy


Busy can indicate a incoming signal or your receiver sensitiviity to rf which could be a poorly shielded coaxial cable.
Check antenna and coax connections for moisture, or corrosion. This could be a poor ground issue at antenna mount or bad coax or antenna.
If this is a magnetic mount antenna i am not surprised they are a waste of time but if you must the Wilson Little Wil would be the choice.
Goodluck

Need a service manual need to modify a MR f55 radio to transmit on 161.600 mhz can you help?


Hello,
You want to be able to transmit to the Coast Station on this frequency I assume. The Coast Guard monitors channel 16 at all times. This would be the primary channel in the United States. Your radio is VHF Marine Radio and has a built in frequency range of 156.050 MHz to 163.275 MHz. There is no need for a modification. This is a duplex frequency. What that means is you will transmit on one frequency and receive on another, while on channel 20. You will not need to transmit on 161.600. Turn your radio to channel 20. When you transmit, you will transmit on 157.000. And when the Port responds to you your radio will automatically receive their signal on 161.600. So if you are trying to figure out how to communicate with the port authorities then for that frequency turn your radio to channel 20 and you will be able to communicate with them.

Regards, Tony

I jus was wondering, can the cb radio and the handheld radio transmit on the same channel? Im a security officer and im interested in purchase a cb radio so we can use it at work but i dont know if its...


CB radios and hand-held CB radios can operate on the same channel and be in contact with each other. Other hand-held radios do not operate on the same frequencies and even though they may have channel numbers the channels have different frequencies and will not operate to CB radios.

Conversation?


Hello Thesilent1,

The other guest, has hit a very good point have you tried checking your mic? If not try changing it out. If you still have a problem do this; get a power meter and connect it to your antenna jack of the CB and the other end of the meter to the antenna this will put the meter in series with the CB and the antenna. then try to key the mic and speak, if the meter indicates 4watts PEP then the transmit function is working and you are getting out. The second test is to set an RF generator to 27.185MHz at -123 dbm or 5.1x-16 watts and use a 1kHz tone to modulate the signal, couple the signal to the antenna with an insulated wire loop and this will allow you to test if you can receive signal. These two tests will show if you can transmit and receive. I believe the problem is with your mic, but I have provided two tests that will prove if you can transmit and receive, so you are ready to test. Let me know how it goes.

Thank you,

Shuttle83

U mean on sideband? Frequency counter only useful on other than sideband operation. This does not mean the carrier insertion osc. is on frequency. If it needs adjustment, your voice will sound high/ low on transmit. Incoming signals will sound right after adjusting the osc.

Meter Shows Signal, no noise


when you have no RX or TX at the same time, that most often means the pre-driver audio transistor is bad.
