|This is one of the best radios i have had the pleasure of owning. I always have had a radio installed on my vehicles since I was first able to drive. I like the dimmer capabitity for night time driving but the reception is horrible!!|
|MikeShapiro||6:50pm on Tuesday, July 20th, 2010|
|Took just a few minutes to hook it up and get it running. Only need a quick fine-tuning and set the SWR. Perfect for my job as a profestional truck driver. Clear Signal, Easy To Use, Good Audio, Lightweight, Perfect For My Long Hauls, Rugged|

Plan location of transceiver and microphone bracket before starting the installation. Select a location that is convenient for operation, yet does not interfere with the driver or passenger. The transceiver is usually mounted to the underside of the dash with the microphone bracket beside it.
Mounting and Connection
Note The transceiver is held in the universal mounting bracket by two thumbscrews which allow for adjustment at a convenient angle. The bracket includes two selftapping screws and star washers. The mounting must be mechanically strong, conveniently located.
Hold the radio with the mounting bracket in the exact desired location. If there is no interference, remove the bracket and use it as a template to mark the location for the mounting screws.
Drill the holes and secure the bracket.

Note Before installing the CB radio, visually check the vehicles battery connection to determine which terminal, positive or negative, is grounded (positive is the larger of the two) to the engine block (or chassis). A negatively grounded vehicle has its negative lead grounded to the chassis.
Connect the antenna cable plug to the receptacle marked ANT on the back of the unit.
Note In positive ground vehicles the red wire goes to the chassis and the black wire is connected to the ignition switch.
Note Connecting to an accessory fuse prevents the unit from being left on accidentally, and also permits operating the unit without running the engine. Note In positive ground vehicles the red wire goes to the chassis and the black wire is connected to the ignition switch.
In a negative grounded vehicle, connect the red lead of the DC power cord to an accessory 12 volt fuse. Connect the black lead to the negative side of the vehicle. This is usually the chassis. Any convenient location with a good electrical contact (remove paint) may be used.

Since the maximum allowable power output of the transmitter is limited by the FCC, the antenna is critical in affecting transmission distance. Only a properly matched antenna system will allow Note maximum power output.

center of the trunk. Note Because many newer trucks feature fiberglass door skins, the outside mirror must be grounded to the chassis. Note 3-way Combination Antennas are also available which allow operation of all three bands (AM-FM & CB), using a single antenna. However, this type of antenna usually results in less than normal transmit and receive range when compared to a standard-type Single Band CB antenna. Call 773889-3087 for further information.
A standard antenna connector is provided on the transceiver for easy connection.
The transceiver will not operate at maximum efficiency in a boat without a ground plate, (unless it has a steel hull). Before attempting installation , consult your dealer for information regarding an adequate grounding system and prevention of electrolysis between fittings in the hull and water.
Ignition Noise Interference
Use of a mobile receiver at low signal levels is normally limited by the presence of electrical noise. The primary source of noise in automobiles is from the alternator and ignition system. Typically, when signal level is adequate, the background noise does not present a serious problem. Also, when extremely low level signals are being received, the transceiver may be operated with the vehicles engine turned off. The unit requires very little current and therefore will not significantly discharge the vehicles battery. Even though the Cobra 29 LTD Classic has an automatic noise limiter, in some installations ignition interference may be high enough to make good communications impossible. Many possibilities exist and variations between vehicles require different solutions. Consult your COBRA dealer or a 2-way radio technician for help in locating the source of a severe noise.
Make sure the power cord, antenna and microphone are connected to their proper connectors before starting.

Note The reading will be slightly higher on Channels 1 and 40 compared to Channel 20. Note When switched to SWR position the meter needle should ideally be as far to the left as possible. Anything over 3 is not acceptable. A slight antenna height adjustment (higher or lower) may be required. Repeat relcalibration steps.
While still holding down the mic button, set the S/RF SWR CAL switch to the SWR position, to read the SWR reading. Repeat the same steps two through five on Channel 1 and 40. This will check SWR for all channels.

When switched to ANL the Automatic Noise Limiter is activated. This helps reduce noise created by the vehicles electronics. When switched to NB/ANL position the RF Noise Blanker is also activated, providing increased noise filtration. When switched to OFF position all noise filtration will be turned off.
The RF noise blanker is very effective in reducing repetitive noises such as ignition interference.
Switch to BRT or DIM to control brightness of the channel indicator and multi-function meter for day or nighttime driving.

Ingenious Products for Easier Communication.
The CB Story
The Citizens Band lies between the shortwave broadcast and 10-meter Amateur radio bands, and was established by law in 1949. The Class D two-way communications service was opened in 1959. (CB also includes a Class A citizens band and Class C remote control frequencies.) 1
FCC regulations permit only transmissions (one party to another) rather than broadcasts (to a wide audience). Thus, advertising is not allowed on CB Channels because that is broadcasting.
All transmitter adjustments other than those supplied by the manufacturer as front panel operating controls, must be made by, or under the supervision of, the holder of an FCC-issued general Radio-Telephone Operators License.
Replacement or substitution of transistors, regular diodes or other parts of a unique nature, with parts other than those recommended by Cobra, may cause violation of the technical regulations of Part 95 of the FCC Rules, or violation of Type Acceptance requirements of Part 2 of the Rules. You should read and understand Part 95 (included with this unit) of the FCC Rules and Regulations, before operating your Cobra radio, even though the FCC no longer requires you to obtain an operators license.

NOTE: Diodes IS2075 can be replaced with 1N4148. Stuck in TX, Check C117, change it to a 16 volt type. No RX/TX, Check for 5 volts at PLL (C112, R86 and R94). No RX and no channel display, Check R103 for cold solder joint. No TX audio and PA not working, Check TR17 is turn on, you may find it is missing Base volts (R70). AWI LED always on, Check TR24 known to go short.
