I would google cb shops for your area. Have a good shop take a look at the radio. It maybe your antenna. It maybe the fact that your radio and antenna are not matched good. It maybe the radio. But those older Cobra's are hard to kill. So unless you have tweeked it. I doubt the radio is bad.

But if you have been using it with a bad match the filters in the radio maybe fried.
