Hi ya'll, I'm new here and new to CB radios. I bought a cobra 19 ultra III about a week ago( 40 dollar CB figured it'd be a good starter CB ) i got it all hooked up that day and it was receiving with no problems, listened to the CB chatter all that week, i didn't use the mic till two days ago cause i was waiting on my swr meter i ordered to get here, it got here about 3 days ago i tested the swr in a wide open parking lot and was getting 1.2 - 1.3 on channel 1, 1.2 on channel 40 and 1.1 on channel 20, i read that as long as it was below a 1.5 it'd be fine to use the mic or transmit so two days ago i was trying to get someone to respond just to see how it worked and i went to go talk into the mic or key the mic and the CB just went dead so i checked the 2amp inline fuse and it was blown, i figured id just go put another 2amp fuse in and it'd be fine but once i put the new fuse in and turned the power back on the CB it lighted up for a second and then then blew the fuse again and it just keeps blowing fuses every time. I'm hoping someone on here can tell me whats going on. I looked at the mother board and nothing looks burnt, i checked the wiring its hooked up right pos+ to pos+ and neg- to neg-. any help is greatly greatly appreciated!!! as I'm leaving for Florida in a couple weeks and would like to have my cb back up and working.
