    Cobra 29 No Transmit

    Hi everyone,

    I recently bought a used Cobra 29, I cleaned it up and went to test it. First thing I noticed is that the built in SWR meter wasnít working. Not a big deal, Iíll test SWR with an external meter. I hooked it up to my antenna and checked SWR, it was at a good level so I went ahead using the radio. I had my buddy help me out and I could receive transmissions from his radio and others, but the Cobra wonít transmit at all, and when I try to transmit the antenna light goes on. Any suggestions on how I should troubleshoot this?

    Thanks,
    Will

    Try a different microphone or check to see if the mic wires are all connected at the connector.

    Thanks for the response. I’ll try a mic that I know works and see if that fixes it.

    Will
