    My CB (25NW/WX) will transmit just fine, but I can't hear people around me. I got my squelch turned all the way down (or up) and the power need will not move at all. I cant hear static either. Once I key my microphone, the needle will jump up and others can hear me. My weatherband also works just fine.

    I've already tried swapping out microphones and antennas. I also tried to tighten all the connections in the back. Any suggestions? You think it could be the coax? Or is there something that went bad on the actual radio unit?

    Squelch should be turned all the way to the left...On Cobra Radios the Mic has to be plugged in to hear anything...It could be you have a bad Mic, or a wire in the Mic plug has pulled loose...

    Try a different Mic...
