To Amazon's credit they sent me a replacement unit 2nd day air. Amazon has been great to deal with, as always.
This second radio seems to transmit fine so far. However, the speaker of this radio emits a constant, low volume, high pitched whine when receiving. The first radio did not have this "feature".
The good news is all of the controls and features seem to work correctly and the noise blanker and automatic noise limiter do a terrific job stopping car ignition noises. I figure I will keep this radio and live with the whine and hope no other problems crop up. If they do I will change my rating.
It cost me additional $100.00 at the CB /Radio Shop to even get it to work a the Tech said he did his best to tune it, but figures the tuning wont hold up and will break down again. He said that there were tons of this model sold at discounted rates , because of the poor quality of the Chinese manufacturer. The CB tech told me that they have had over 200 of these units come in for repair, brand new right out of the box and all of them were not with in factory specs and the electronics are dodgy at best. He said don't expect it to last. When you really need it, it more then likely
will not be there, it will fail. He said buy a another radio because this one out of the box, is a piece of junk! He did not try to sell me a new unit, he did say do my research before I purchased a replacement. The Name Cobra is now Chinese Owned and its junk.
The microphone gain is poor and the clarifier is very sensitive and twitchy. I sent the unit for repair locally and it has cost me aprox $100 all up freight included to get the brand new unit repaired and retuned back to me. Cobra warranty in Australia is useless.
You are on your own. JUBEES Enterprises did not want anything to do with me once I reported the unit faulty on arrival. There are better radios out there.
Purchase something else. Cobra is not what it used to be.
Pros: SWR Meter, RF Gain, Dyna-Mic, SSB (120 total channels)
Cons: The only con is the size...just a bit bulky.
This radio will remain a classic for years to come!
