Cobra 29GTL Won't Transmit

I've got an old Cobra 29GTL set up at home as a base unit that receives fine but does not seem to transmit. The red "ANT" light comes on when I key the mike even though it's hooked up to a good antenna. I also calibrated the mike to the meter. Any suggestions?

If the red ant light comes on this means that you have antenna trouble either in the antenna itself or the coax but this should not have anything to do with the radio not transmitting. it sounds to me that you have a bad audio chip or a bad power output transistor. in either case you should really take it to a cb shop and let the professionals solve your problem, good luck!!

No good receive on cobra 142 gtl base

What is the swr? This can impact the receiver. However, the tuning coils for receive and transmit are close to each other and someone most likely turned the receive coil instead of the transmit coil. The coils that are adjustable that affect receive are 13, 15 and 3. 3 is the coil that is close to the transmit section. You may want to have it realigned.

Radio will not send

It is possible your Code for transmit is different than your Code for receive. Cobra makes so many models, you are not giving enough information. Also, Transmit takes a LOT of power, so even if everything is setup, if your batts are weak or old, the radio will receive, but not transmit. Also check your antenna, make sure it is tight and NEVER transmit without an antenna. Yes, all lights will work even with old batteries.

On my Cobra 25 LTD CLassic, New my meter drops when transmitting

is this a new out of the box radio?if so you might need a tech to look at it because it could be an internal problem.It would have to be put on an analyzer and a scope to actually be seen doing what you say.don't worry because it can be fixed.the cost of fixing it is the problem.You have to decide whether you want to pay more for the repair than you paid for the radio. Either way,new or used the answer is the same.

Cobra 148 gtl-st wont transmit but receives great

Check first your microphone

• check if TX is engaging when PTT is pushed.


• check for continuity ( mic and cable )



If you have not done these steps,

try it first, or borrow other compatible mic for Cobra 148GTL

from your friends on air.

Cx80, what does the code "rx" mean on the display


  • TX = Transmit. RX = Receive. Does your needle move when you key the mic? Does it modulate when you talk in the mic? Do you have an inline watt/SWR meter inline? What kind of a set up do you have? Mobile? Base? Get back to me if you want further help.

X107 Mini helicopter does not seem to be taking a charge from USB port on computer. ran coptor for about 2 weeks following recharging instructions... rest, recharge of heli in "off"...

Hi, My X107 MINI HELICOPTER does not receive transmit anymore. It was working fine before. It only flys if I hold the remote control right next to the sensor. If I move it away it loses transmit. Both units have full power. How do I solve this problem.

I have a new cobra 148 with ssb, about 6 months old, while i was away there was a storm, now the radio doesnt work , recieve or transmit, i also have a cobra 29 ltd that wont transmit but it will recieve....

make sure the mic is good. If for some reason the mic went bad, it will not receive or transmit.

As for the one with no receive, it most likely needs a new final.

If lightning hit your antron, it would be in pieces.
