Are you looking to stay in contact with your workers or friends? Now is the time to buy you a Handheld CB Radio. I am the owner of a small factory and after reading numerous reviews bought my company a few of these Cobra HH 38 WX ST 4-Mile 40-Channel CB Radio stay in contact with my personnel working out in the factory and since pleased that I have. As now when I am looking for the workshop personnel or a supervisor, I only use the handheld and there is no need to go looking for them saving me time and money in the process.
What I received with the Cobra HH 38 WX ST
When I received this Cobra HH 38 WX ST handheld and taking, a look at them for the first time I was impressed with the sleek design of this CB. Comfortable to hold in your hand with no heavy, bulky feeling to it found in many older models. The package included the handheld, antenna, a removable belt clip, wrist strap, 12V cigarette lighter plug to use while traveling, and the operation manual.
Comes with many functional buttons
The first thing, we as a team had to do, was learn the basics of the Cobra 38WXST and working together as a team, we found working with the handheld fairly simple once we knew all the buttons available as it offers you with different functions and found them easy to use.
Some of these great, easy to use buttons included the on/off volume control, the Push to Talk, another great function the SloundTracker® key that works great when in the factory, CB/WX Weather key, are only some to name available on this handheld CB radio.
Great to use in a noisy factory
One of the main reasons that I bought the Cobra HH38WXST handheld is that it comes with SoundTracker® that works great in my business and for the team. As with this function, it cuts the noise coming in while strengthening the signal when going out and has helped improve our communication when one person is in the factory where there are many noises. It does not cut the noise completely, but helps.
What the system does is reconfigured the transmission signal that allows it to transfer more efficiently through cluttered airwaves. Simultaneously, it significantly reduces the static on all incoming signals and provides a clear sound for reception.

Before buying the Cobra HH38WXST handheld, I read multiple customer feedbacks provided by Amazon. The majority of customers who have used the CB radio are pleased with the functionality when it comes to the small design, great reception and transmission, and it while traveling by motorcycle and even on hunting and fishing trips.
One client had the following to say regarding the handheld, “He thinks that the handheld is great for what it is and bought it because he wanted one that he could use in more than one truck and found the 10 NOAA weather channels great as he travels by road most of the time. He also advised that this is a good buy.”

- The Cobra 38WXST is easy to use
- It is lightweight
- Provides you with great reception
- The handheld is rugged built
- The warranty is great
- The CB radio provides you with a good range and great when used while camping and for emergencies
The only thing I found is that the battery does not last long when used
Another thing that I thought is worthwhile mentioning is the fact that you need to buy the A/C charging adapter separately as it does not come with the package and the provided power cord to use in the vehicle does not charge the handhelds’ battery.
I must say that as you do find complaints with the majority of CB radios available on the market from some users the Cobra HH 38 WX ST 4-Mile 40-Channel CB Radio works great for me in the factory business when it comes to transmitting and receiving. I do not have the need of looking for my employees when not able to contact them by landline and much cheaper than contacting them by mobile services.
