Open Question

Does not Auto Squelch, Cobra PR 4700 Wx

Turn the unit on and continous static in all channels. Not affected by the light button (below the PTT) which can turn auto squelch off/on for hard to hear transmissions. I am wondering if i have a bum radio on my hands. thanks to everybody

    I too am searching for a reset as one of my two radios does not auto
    squelch. I have taken the batteries out and let set overnight, turned
    maximum range on and then tried to turn it off with the Light/Max Range
    button and changing the channel. Seems like the max range is stuck.
    Is there an internal baseline squelch adjustment? This is for the PR4700WX radio.

Cobra microtalk Cxt135C one radio seems to be muted, there is no sound coming from it at all -


Check to see if you have "tone squelch" or CTCSS enabled. It will only receive transmissions from stations that are transmitting the tone your radio has selected.

What is the DW button/switch for on the Cobra 18 WX ST II?


It is dual watch. you can set it to have two channels monitored. like ch 1 and ch 13 it will flip between those two channels. but if you use say 6, 19, 26 along with another ch it will stay on the channel with the most noise. and you would have to turn up the squelch to compensate.

All static when not sending


There is a "squelch" control (may be a ring around the volume knob) that controls whether the radio thinks there is a signal to listen to. Adjust this until you don't hear the static (it should cut off all at once, that is where you want the control set).

Cobra pr250 2 way radios


Hi,

Pls verify that both radios are:
1. within range of each other;
2. channel selection is identical;
3. CTCSS Privacy Code is identical;
4. Call Tone is identical;
5. Receive icon appears when the other radio's PTT is pressed;
6. Auto Squelch/Max Range is set to receive even weak signals.
Please correct settings if needed.

In some cases, it is the internal speakers that goes bad.

Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Bad static


The Cobra 20 NW ST Wx is ( in my opion ) a very poor receiving radio. The ST is a bummer in all Cobra radios. The Static is apparent for the atmospheric conditioons and definally power lines and any high voltage will be picked up. When I get a customer with similiar complaints ( and there are a bunch ) I normally recommend that we turn the receive senativity down a bit. Sorry for this advise.

Long range mode


Hi,

For the Cobra PR4700WX:
The user's manual is available here
To turn on/off the long range mode - (If you are referring to low & high power); Press and hold the Hi•Low/Enter button for two seconds.
Alternately, if you are referring to the Light/Max Range (receive sensitivity), 3 options:
1. To briefly turn off auto squelch - Press the Light/Max Range button for less than five seconds. If you hear two beeps, you have turned the maximum range extender on.
2. To turn maximum range extender on - Press and hold the Light/Max Range button for at least five seconds until you hear
two beeps which indicates the maximum range extender is on.
3. To turn maximum range extender off - Press and release the Light/Max Range button or change channels.
Probable reason that "fishing was all right but for hunting there is to much static" is becasue these radios operate on line of sight principle. Anything that obstructs the linear view would reduce signal strength/range. There is not that much obstruction when fishing compared to that when hunting in the woods or rough uneven terrain.
Please note that when using Channels 1 through 7 and 15 through 22 on high power, the Hi icon will be visible on the display. When using those channels on low power and on Channels 8 through 14, the Low icon will be visible on the display.

For the Cobra PR3500DX:
The user's manual is available here.
The transmission message icon off when not in use - this icon will only display if the radio is receiving something or if your are pressing the PTT button.
The other three the transmission signal is on at all times - indicates that either you are transmitting (unlikely) or the radio is in constant receive mode (most likely). I would venture a guess that the Auto Squelch is switched "OFF" or Maximum Range is switched "ON"

Both the 4700 & 3500 has Power Saver and it is a built-in feature. Your radios have this unique circuit designed that extend battery life. If there are no transmissions for 10 seconds, the radio will automatically switch to Battery Save mode and the Power Saver icon will flash in the display. This will not affect the radio’s ability to receive incoming transmissions.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
