Very convenient handheld

By C Newton

Comments about Cobra 38 WX St Handheld CB Radio:

I bought this radio about a week ago, mainly for being out and about (camping, etc.) and as a convenient way to test my other transcievers. It is set up with the stock rubber antenna and equipped with standard alkaline batteries. As can be expected, the range is not "great" with this setup, but is better than I expected. The built in weather function is very nice and receives well, very handy to have around the house in case of an emergency. Very pleased with this product myself, but would definitely recommend an actual mobile transciever for use in a vehicle.

Good Basic Radio

By Gill

Comments about Cobra 38 WX St Handheld CB Radio:

I have owned this for years (maybe since 2003 timeframe?) I kept in in my car mostly, and in moving vans over several cross country moves. I have only had reason to use it twice. Once when being overtaken by a large truck at a high Appalachian pass in thick snow. I saw him coming from a couple miles back and coordinated passage. The other was during a New Mexico high country snowstorm when they were shutting the highway down and I radioed for some guidance.

I think I paid around $50. I never expected a 20 mile radio, for god sakes, it's a handheld radio - if you're a trucker, buy a real system, otherwise quit your griping! For a handheld it did it's job. Once was enough to pay off, twice is a bonus, now I keep it plugged in the center console of my Jeep just in case. And it has been (accidentally) slammed in car doors, launched about the cabin during hard stops, dropped in slush, rain, snow, mud, and on pavement. Durable little sucker.

I only thought to look it up online to get a manual (after a decade I just figured out how to use the DW button!)

This has worked pretty decently for me. Beats having to lug around a larger set, fits in a travel bag nicely. Decently priced also.

Falls Short Of What I Expect From Cobra

By smitty03281964

Comments about Cobra 38 WX St Handheld CB Radio:

I have owned this unit since 2003. Just recently tried using it. Really no reception at home with the supplied antenna. Went out on interstate with it and still really no reception. The weather feature works great. Maybe a better antenna is needed. I will get one and post the results. Also I don't think a owners manual came with the unit and I looked in the box

Poor reception

By John Robert

from West Lafayette, IN, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Cobra 38 WX St Handheld CB Radio:

I purchased this radio when traveling a year ago at a truck stop. The unit rarely picks up anything on any channel even when traveling in or near highly contested traffic. I would not recommend this product. Unfortunately ther was no option to return this product so we are out about $100.
