Question about Cobra 19 DX IV CB Radio
I just bought the CB and the antenna recommended by Cobra for it, and I installed it. However I can only get static and every so often hear someone, no matter what channel I'm on. I have it wired to the fuse panel as the book suggested and the antenna is magnetic and I have it mounted on the trunk. Any way of fixing this problem?
Even though cobra recomended this enteana for this radio does'nt excuse the fact that you definetlly need to check and adjust the (swr) standing wave ratio. I would also suggest you placing the enteana at the highest point in the center of the roof. Check the (swr) with an external meter not the one in the radio, and adjust the enteana accordinglly. SWR readings higher than 3.0 can damage your finals and have adverse effects on your receive capabilites.

Make sure people are talking on the channel it may be no one is talking . the static tells you it is receiving something. the cobra 19 and sister radio magnum sold at wallyworld are notorious for having bad solder joints on their boards.
