Question

How far of a range can I legitimately expect with this product?

I will be using a 36inch Astatic Magnetic Mount antenna.

I want to reach around 10 miles with a stock radio. Is this possible?

I don't need "bells and whistles." I just want to receive and transmit. Any suggestions?

You must buy one and wire it up yourself.

answer 2
You have to buy one but this method of installation is NOT recommended if you want the best performance this radio has to offer. Wire it direct to your battery to cut out alternator wine and mount your antenna as high as possible on your vehicle and have it matched. Do not loop extra antenna coax in loops less than 12" in diameter as this can create and RF choke and limit Tx performance. Best bet would be to take this to a professional installer or ask a Ham to install it for you.

The Cobra CB radio comes with an in line fuse already. Check to see if you have 2 lines touching each other that is making it short out.

No, its a two way citizen band (CB) radio. With scanners you can only listen in and can not talk. The FCC set aside these channels for us to use and will not let you go on any other channels without a license.
