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.

Just hooked up my cobra cb radio with attena and cant hear anyone on any channel? is my cb working properly? is there a channel that is always hot to test if it works?


CB channel 19 is one of the most frequently used; it is unofficially designated as a "highway information" channel. It is not always hot, however. It is possible you may have your squelch control set too high. If you cannot even hear static, this may be the case. If you can, the channel may just be empty. Try scanning up and down the band until you find something.

Cobra 19 DX IV out of frequency


I would definitely take it back for a re check. If the radio took a good bump perhaps it can cause it to drift off frequency. Turning the channel while holding his mic keyed does nothing but just throws a dead carrier. No value what soever. RF Gain is just to improve his reception by either lowering or raising the sensitivity of the receiver of the radio. Squelch is to silence the hissing sound you hear when no one is talking. Care must be taken to not to adjust too much or you wont hear anybody. It wont help his transmit audio at all. Recommend you get another Radio Check from someone else. He could be pulling your leg saying you don't sound good. Best regards and hope this helps some......................John.
