  • Compact, Inexpensive, Reliable
    OVERVIEW
    I had this radio in my Dodge truck. It tucked nice under the dash and was a great performer. Power was good as well as reception. Great Buy!
    POWER
    Any CB you purchase is limited to 4 watts output power so dont let size fool you. ALL CB'S are limited to 4 watts due to FCC regulations, look it up!
    PRICE
    The price on this site is high retail to say the least. I purchased this unit from Wal-Mart for 35 dollars.
    SIZE
    This will not take up a bunch of in-cab space that you dont have to spare due to manual tranmissions and transfer case levers. It tucks away nice and doesnt get in the way....more info
  • Small radio with lots of annoyances.
    I bought the Cobra 19 DX IV for my wife's car since we needed a small radio without bells and whistles.

    This radio appeared to be a perfect fit for my needs. But, after using it, I am disappointed with this radio. Here's why:

    1. Unit resets to channel 01 when it loses power. So either wire it directly to the battery (and remember to turn it off!) or wire it to accessory power and work channel 01 every time you start the car.

    2. "Poppy" squelch. When a weak signal breaks the squelch then fades, the squelch makes an annoying popping sound as it squelches the audio.

    3. S/RF meter shows nothing (drops to zero) when squelch activates. If the squelch is set fairly high, the meter shows no signal until someone manages to break the squelch. I personally think the meter should show all RF activity whether the squelch is on or off.

    Hope this helps someone....more info

  • Good basic unit for the money
    The 19 DX IV is a great little CB for the money. Yes, like a previous reviewer said, it does reset to channel 1 each time the power is cut, but....there's an instant channel 9/19 button. So with two little taps, your on 19, no big deal. This is a great unit for someone who just wants a basic unit to monitor highway conditions while travelling. It's also good for someone who wants to have a CB for emergencies but wants a step up from one of those useless emergency CBs like you used to see marketed a while back. Finally, yes, it's great for off-roaders who want a basic CB that can fit in the tight interior of a jeep or smaller truck. As with any CB, the antenna makes the big difference. Pair this with a Wilson Little Wil magnet mount antenna and you have a solid performing combo for routine CB use. ...more info

  • Great Little CB
    bought one of these because i had a good experience with the older model (III). this is a good little radio, doesnt have some of the bells and whistles of more expensive models but works fine as a CB. if it had a channel scanning or built in SWR functions i would have given it 5 stars....more info
  • Good radio, but there is better for less
    It's a decent unit, and cobra is a great company, but there is much better. The midland 1001z is much better built and has much better sound quality and features.

    That being said, here's why this radio gets three stars. My main issue is the new digital setup on this radio. It pops as signals come in and out of the squelch range. This gets very annoying when you want to just cut out the white noise and hear as much as you can. If someone is right on the border of your signal range, they will pop as they cut in and out, where as other radios will feather in and out, or hold the signal until they quit transmitting. The previous generation of this radio (with the separate LED lights for the meter) was MUCH better in this regard. If you must have a cobra, look for that version, or go to another model. Cobra just went too cheap on this one, but you still pay a premium for the name. All the components feel needlessly light compared to the competition, and also compared to older cobra's themselves. The one missing feature that others have is the RF gain. Very handy and doesn't seem like it'd be much trouble for them to add it, but they reserve that for their expensive radios.

    Again, on it's own, this is a good radio, but when you look at it side by side with it's cheaper priced competition, the choice is easy....more info

  • Cobra 19
    The Cobra 19 CB radio is perfect for those who have limited space but still want a great radio. Off-road groups that would like to be able to talk to their friends will like the ease of use and it fits most anywhere. Mount it, hook up the power, add an antenna, and your on your way....more info
