| | Cobra 29 LTD Classic Problems : Weak Receive, No Transmit
I'm pretty not new to CB
radios, but I am
new to fixing them.
I got a Cobra 29 LTD Classic off of a friend of mine. It powered up okay, the display only works on bright, but I didn't think it was a huge problem.
I tested it a spare antenna and with my existing car rig (Cobra 19 + Wilson Antenna). The Cobra 29 receives very poorly. Sound is very weak and full of static when I key. Even with squelch all the way off, and gain all the way up, I still can't get the speaker to produce any regular static.
Transmit is another story. When I key, I hear the pop of the key activating and my Cobra 19 goes silent like someone is transmitting, but it won't transmit any of my voice.
