Open up the radio and look inside of it towards the front of the unit, there should be a small circuit board mounted either in the front center or to either side of the radio. This will be the board for the weather channels, check the all the wires coming from this board and make sure they are connected on both ends, if they are then look on this little circuit board and you should see some small components with tiny slots for a screwdriver to fit. these are the adjustments for the receive function of the weather channels, slowly turn the little slot with a small screwdriver little by little one by one and you should notice some kind of change in the receive on these weather channels if so keep slowly adjusting them until optimum receive level is obtained. If you feel this proceedure is beyond your skill level then I suggest that you carry it to a local CB radio repair shop. If you dont have a local repair shop just go to a truck stop along any interstate and ask the employees or even a trucker if they know where a cb repair shop is and I feel sure there will be one within a few miles of your location. Good luck with your problem.

With my cobra 29 wx nw st I can not pick up any weather channels. I have the k30 antenna. Do I need a dual band antenna?

Do you hear static when you turn on weather? If so there are just none in range of you. There are not weather radio stations everywhere. You would not use a dual band antenna on any CB. Only an antenna designed for the 11 meter band. Which is the 27mhz CB radio band.

You can go here and see if you have NOAA All hazards weather radio coverage in your area.

If the CB radio is working otherwise it is most likely that there is just not a NOAA transmitter near you.

Can not hear anything

Take the cover off, hook the antenna up and turn the unit on. Take a pencil with the eraser end and press around on the circuit board, look for cold solder joints....hope this helps..
