    So someone gave me a cobra 19, set it up but the mic wasn't transmitting according to guy I who was helping me test it.

    Not trying to throw a bunch of money at a guessing game

    Borrow another mic and see what happens. If the same issue arises, then it’s not the mic. If your trying to save a buck, then find a truck from someone else that has a radio that is working, then take your radio and mic and hook it up to there set up. If it works, then your issues lies in your coax and antenna set up.

    Install the radio in a truck with known good microphone and antenna.
