Stupid CB !!!!

Just venting .

I finally installed my CB (Cobra 75 wx)....well after double checking everything and i mean everything.I cannot transmit at all but i could receive signals clearly.

So i googled and searched, it seems that maybe the transmitter is busted.So i called Cobra and the tech said that if the bar that shows when your transmitting is showing that the transmitter is OK.

So i go back and ran the SWR meter and so far its 1.5.So it should be good!!
But noooo... the friggin thing is not sending.Looks like I'll be going to the pros and see if they can figure it out.

I feel for you man! I know how it feels when you do everything right and the stuff just won't work, its way too frustrating.

Hang in there!

How do you know it's not transmitting?

x2, have you taken it (your Jeep and installed CB) to a CB shop to verify? Else a buddy with a CB (handheld or mounted) could easily validate.
