Re: CB Not Recieving! << Help

Driving home from work last night I found that when I select the WX switch, I can hear the weather crystal clear. I can adjust the static to quiet by setting the SQL knob. But when I am in CB mode, I can't see the needle bounce to pick up anyone coming in at all. I'm confused because I can hear weat...

Re: CB Not Recieving! << Help

I will take my mic apart on my days off to see if they area all connected. I can lose the static with the settings, but it becomes perfect for a half of a second and then goes back to nothing when I first turn the key over. I've went to the road ranger to buy an ash tray power cord to see if it was ...

CB Not Recieving! << Help

My Cobra 29 wx st isn't receiving any signals. When I first start my truck I will hear clear signal from weather or someone talking, but then after a second it goes to just static. I can transmit, but I can't receive. I hate to get a new cb, does anyone know what the problem might be? :icon_rolleye...
