How To Use Your

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.) 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. Cuts Static coming in, adds Punch going out! Cobra proudly introduces the first Patent Pending technology that dramatically improves the transmission and reception of CB radio signals. This revolutionary system reconfigures the transmission signal which allows it to be transferred more effectively through cluttered airwaves. It literally punches your message through the hundreds of thousands of signals that are in the air. At the same time, SoundTracker system dynamically adjusts the relationship between the signal and static commonly referred to as noise. This allows Cobras SoundTracker system to significantly reduce the amount of static on all incoming CB signals. The system can be further optimized when two SoundTracker CBs are used to talk to each other. The end result is a clearer, cleaner sounding reception of signals and more powerful transmissions which dramatically improve CB Communications
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. Citizens Band (CB) Radio operators are no longer required to obtain an FCC license to operate their CB equipment or provide station identification. Nevertheless, an operator of a CB radio station is still required to comply with the communications act and with the rules of CB Radio Operation.

What Is Weather Radio?

NOAA WEATHER RADIO (NWR) is a service of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), of the U.S. Department of Commerce. It provides continuous, around-the-clock broadcasts of the latest weather information directly from National Weather Service Offices. The broadcasts are tailored to the weather-information needs of people within the receiving area. For example, coastal and Great Lakes stations provide specialized weather information for area boaters, fishermen and others engaged in marine activities, as well as general weather information for the public-at-large. Three hundred eighty (380) NWR stations are in operation by the U.S. Government in addition to several NWR stations that are maintained by private interest groups. Under the January 1975 White House policy statement, NOAA Weather Radio was designated as the sole Government operated radio system to provide direct warnings into private homes for both natural disasters and nuclear attack. The capability is to supplement warnings by sirens and by commercial radio and television. NWR Frequencies and Transmission Characters NWR broadcasts have been allocated seven frequencies within the VHF radio spectrum reserved for Government use. Assigned frequencies are: 162.400 MHz 162.475 MHz 162.525 MHz 162.425 MHz 162.500 MHz 162.550 MHz 162.450 MHz 1

Power Output External Speaker for PA (Not Supplied)


Location Plan the location of the transceiver and microphone bracket before starting the installation. Select a location that is convenient for operation and does not interfere with the driver or passengers in the vehicle. In automobiles, the transceiver is usually mounted to the underneath of the dash panel, with the microphone bracket beside it.

Installation (Cont.)

Connect the antenna cable plug to the standard receptacle on the unit. Most CB antennas are terminated with a type PL-259 plug which mates with the receptacle marked "ANT." Connect the red lead of DC power cord to +13.8 VDC. In automobile installations, +13.8 VDC is usually obtained from the accessory contact in the fuse box. This prevents the set being left on accidentally and also permits operating the unit without the vehicle's engine running. Before installing the CB radio, visually check the vehicle battery connections to determine which battery terminal, positive or negative (positive is the larger of the two) is grounded to the engine block (or chassis).
Mounting and Connection The transceiver is held in the universal mounting bracket by two thumbscrews, permitting adjustment at the most convenient angle. A universal mounting bracket is supplied along with self tapping screws and star washers. The mounting must be mechanically strong and also provide a good electrical connection to the chassis of the vehicle. To mount the transceiver:
Determine the most convenient location in your vehicle, hold the COBRA radio with mounting bracket in the exact location desired. If nothing will interfere with mounting it in the desired position, remove the mounting bracket and use it as a template to mark the location for the mounting screws. Drill necessary holes and secure mounting bracket in location.
Connect he black lead to the negative side of the automobile. This is usually the chassis of the car. Any convenient location with good electrical contact (remove paint) may be used. Plug power cable into jack on back of transceiver. In positive ground automobiles the red wire goes to the chassis and the black wire is connected to the ignition switch.
When 13.8 volts DC is initially applied to radio, the radio will turn on (when power switch is in OFF position) for 1 second. This is the emergency weather alert normal initialization procedure. Mount microphone bracket on right side of the transceiver, or near it using two screws supplied. When mounting in an automobile, place the bracket under the dash so the microphone is readily accessible.
CB Antenna Since the maximum allowable power output of the transmitter is limited by the FCC, the antenna is one important factor affecting transmission distance. Only a properly matched antenna system will allow maximum power transfer from the 50 ohm transmission line to the radiating element. In mobile installations (cars, trucks, boats, etc.), an antenna system that is non-directional should be used. A vertically polarized, quarter-wavelength whip antenna provides the most reliable operation and greatest range. Shorter, loaded-type whip antennas are more attractive, compact and adequate for applications where the maximum possible distance is not required. Also, the loaded whips do not present the problems of height imposed by a full quarter-wavelength whip. Mobile whip antennas utilize the metal body of the vehicle as a ground plane. When mounted at a corner of the vehicle they are slightly directional, in the direction of the body of the vehicle. For all practical purposes, however, the radiation pattern is nondirectional. The slight directional characteristic will be observed only at extreme distances. A standard antenna connector (type SO-239) is provided on the transceiver for easy connection to a standard PL 259 cable termination. Cobra loaded type antenna models are highly recommended for most installations. Consult your Cobra dealer for further details, or call 773-8893087 and speak to a Cobra customer representative. WX Antenna For best reception of weather channels, we recommend dual band antennas which provide optimum CB and WX reception. If you want more information about models and prices, call our consumer hotline 773-889-3087. When installed in a boat, the transceiver will not operate at maximum efficiency without a ground plate, unless the vessel has a steel hull. Before installing the transceiver in a boat, consult your dealer for information regarding an adequate grounding system and prevention of electrolysis between fittings in the hull and water. 3-Way Combination Antennas are available which allow operation of all three bands (AM-FM & CB), using a single antenna. However, use of this type of antenna usually results in less than normal transmit and receive range when compared to a standard-type "Single Band" antenna designed for CB only. The quality of reception of radio signals is highly dependent on the antenna system. Typical CB antennas may not be very efficient when used for WX reception. Call 773-889-3087 for further information.

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 automobile installations is from the alternator and ignition system in the vehicle. Under most operating conditions, 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 vehicle engine turned off. The unit requires very little current and therefore will not significantly discharge the vehicle battery. Even though the COBRA 29 WX ST has an automatic noise limiter, in some installations ignition interference may be high enough to make good communications impossible. The electrical noise may come from several sources. Many possibilities exist and variations between vehicles require different solutions to reduce the noise. Consult your COBRA dealer or a 2-way radio technician for help in locating and correcting the source of severe noise.
Base Station Operation (Operation from 120VAC, House Current) To operate your transceiver from your home or office, using the regular house current as the power source, you will require a 12 VDC power pack that has been specially designed for the purpose. It is available as optional equipment from your COBRA dealer. It consists of a 120-volt, 60 Hz AC to 12-volt DC power converter that delivers the required power for the operation of the transceiver. Simply connect the red (+) and black ( - ) leads of the transceiver to the corresponding terminals of the power packs. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPERATE THIS TRANSCEIVER BY CONNECTING DIRECTLY TO 120 VAC.
Temporary Mobile Operation To operate your COBRA transceiver from a car on a temporary basis, you may want to purchase an optional cigar lighter adapter from your COBRA dealer. This adapter and a magnetic mount antenna allow you to quickly "install" your transceiver for temporary use.


Controls and Indicators Refer to controls, indicators and connectors as illustrated below:

Operation (Cont.)

DELTA-TUNE. For normal operation, set this control to the center position. This feature has several uses and can greatly enhance receiver operation. If a received signal is slightly off frequency, the Delta-Tune control can be used to fine-tune your receiver. Fine tuning is accomplished by listening for a more readable signal at the speaker or by noting the Smeter reading when the Delta-Tune control is operated. Another use of this control is eliminating adjacent interference. If an exceptionally high level signal from an adjacent channel is creating interference on the channel being used, the Delta-Tune can be used to minimize or eliminate the interference. Rotate the control until you obtain minimum adjacent channel interference. NOTE: Delta-Tune is operable only in the receive mode. WEATHER CHANNEL SELECTOR. This switch selects any one of the seven U.S. NOAA Weatherband broadcast stations (see p. 1). Always keep set to local NOAA Frequency. See enclosed brochure and card for NOAA travel information. NOTE: The Weather Alert Tone can be turned off by positioning this selector in the off location. SWR CAL. Used to calibrate the meter for SWR (standing wave ratio) measurements. Simply switch to "CAL," press the PTT switch on the microphone and calibrate the meter. CHANNEL SELECTOR SWITCH. This switch selects any one of forty Citizens Band channels desired. The selected channel is indicated by the LED readout (17), directly above the channel selector knob. S/RF/SWR/CAL SWITCH. When in the S/RF position, the meter swings proportionally to the strength of the received signal. When transmitting, the meter indicates relative RF output power. When in the "CAL" position, the SWR meter can be calibrated by adjusting the "SWR CAL" control to the "CAL" mark on the meter face. When in the "SWR" position, the standing wave ratio is measured. NB-ANL/ANL/ OFF SWITCH: When this switch is in the ANL position, only the automatic noise limiter in the audio circuits is activated. When it is in the NB/ANL position, the RF noise blanker also is activated. The RF noise blanker is very effective for repetitive impulse noise, such as ignition interference. PA/CB SWITCH:.Selects the mode of operation. In the CB position, the PA function is disabled and the unit will transmit and receive on the selected frequency. The PA function should not be used unless a PA speaker is connected. In the PA mode, incoming CB transmissions will be heard through the PA speaker. This allows you to monitor messages when you are not inside your vehicle. CB/WX SWITCH. Used for selection between receiving Weatherband broadcasts or normal CB operation. The radio will not transmit in the Weatherband mode.

MICROPHONE CONNECTOR. Front panel microphone connector. OFF/ON/VOLUME. Turn clockwise to turn power on and set the desired listening volume. SQUELCH. This control is used to cut off or eliminate receiver background noise in the absence of an incoming signal. For maximum receiver sensitivity it is desired that the control be adjusted only to the point where the receiver background noise or ambient background noise is eliminated. Adjust until the receiver noise disappears. This will require the incoming signal to be slightly stronger than the average receiver noise. Further clockwise rotation will increase the threshold level which a signal must overcome in order to be heard. Only strong signals will be heard at a maximum clockwise setting. DYNAMIKE. Adjusts the microphone gain in the transmit and PA modes. This controls the gain to the extent that full talk power is available several inches away from the microphone. In the Public Address (PA) mode, the control functions as the volume control. RF GAIN. Adjust as required to optimize signal. This control is used primarily to optimize reception in strong signal areas. Gain is reduced by counterclockwise rotation of the control.
CH.19/CH.9/NORMAL SWITCH. Used for instant selection of emergency Channel 9 (CH. 9 position) or information Channel 19. In NORMAL position, all 40 CB channels are selected by the CHANNEL SELECTOR switch (9). S-METER. Swings proportionally to the strength of the incoming signal during receiving. The S/RF-SWR-CAL switch must be in the S/RF position. RF-METER.Swings proportionally to the RF output power while transmitting. The S/RF-SWR-CAL switch must be in the S/RF position. SWR METER. Measures standing wave ratio of the antenna system. Used to properly adjust the length of the antenna and to monitor the quality of the coaxial cable and all RF electrical connections. If there is any degradation whatsoever in any of the foregoing, due to humidity, salt spray, vibration or corrosion, the SWR meter reading will rise, thereby indicating that a problem exists. To calibrate, switch to the "CAL" position, transmit by pressing the mike switch, and adjust the SWR control to the "CAL" mark on the meter; then switch to "SWR" position for the SWR measurement. RX/TX/WX LED INDICATOR. When your radio is in the CB receive mode, the LED will be green. When in transmit mode, the LED will be red and in Weatherband mode, the LED will be orange. LED CHANNEL DISPLAY. The selected channel will be displayed. Display will be off when radio is in Weatherband mode. SOUNDTRACKER SWITCH. Depressing this button turns on the SoundTracker system in your CB. SOUNDTRACKER INDICATOR. A red LED will illuminate when the SoundTracker system is engaged on your CB.

C. Rear Panel 1. PUBLIC ADDRESS: An external 8-ohm 4.0 watt PA speaker may be connected to the PA Speaker Jack when this unit is used as a public address system. The speaker should be directed away from the microphone to prevent acoustic feed-back. Physical separation or isolation of the microphone and speaker must be employed when operating the PA at high output levels. 2. EXTERNAL SPEAKER: The External Speaker Jack is used for remote receiver monitoring. The external speaker should have 8-ohm impedance and be rated to handle at least 4.0 watts. When the external speaker is plugged in, the internal speaker is automatically disconnected. 3. ANTENNA CONNECTOR: This SO-239 connector permits connection of the transmission line cable PL-259 connector to the transceiver. 4. POWER. This jack permits connection of the DC power to the transceiver. A power cord with polarized plug is supplied with the radio. The polarized plug ensures that the power will always be connected properly. Operating Procedure to Receive CB Broadcasts are connected to the proper connectors before proceeding further. The PA/CB should be in the CB position. 2. Turn the radio ON by rotating the VOLUME CONTROL clockwise. 3. Set the RF GAIN CONTROL fully clockwise. 4. Rotate SQUELCH CONTROL counterclockwise until incoming signal is heard. 5. Set the Channel Selector Switch to the desired channel. 6. Set VOLUME CONTROL to a comfortable listening level. 7. Engage the SoundTracker system by depressing the buttons labeled ST. SoundTracker system allows you to reduce unwanted background noise (static) and increase the signal for better reception. Listen to the background noise from the speaker. Turn the SQUELCH CONTROL slowly clockwise until the noise JUST disappears (no signal should be present). Leave the control at this setting. The squelch is now properly adjusted. The receiver will remain quiet until a signal is actually received. Do not advance the control too far, or some of the weaker signals will not be heard.
1. Be sure that the power cord, antenna and microphone
B. PRESS-TO-TALK MICROPHONE. Both the receiver and transmitter are controlled by the Press-to-Talk switch on the microphone. Press the switch and the transmitter is activated; release the switch to receive. When transmitting, hold the microphone two inches from the mouth and speak clearly in a normal voice. The microphone provided with your radio is a detachable lowimpedance dynamic type. The radio will not transmit in the Weatherband mode even though pressing the microphone switch will cause the red TX LED to illuminate.

Operating Procedure to Transmit

How SoundTracker Works

While previous systems only blanked out or limited noise in higher sound frequencies, the revolutionary new SoundTracker System actually reduces noise while leaving the signal intact in the reception mode. In the transmission mode, it actually strengthens the signal, providing you with a significant reduction in noise on reception and transmission.

1. 2. 3. 4.

Be sure the operator has read and understands part 95, F.C.C. Rules and Regulations prior to operating the transmitter. Select the desired channel. Set the DYNAMIKE control fully clockwise. The receiver and transmitter are controlled by the press-to-talk switch on the microphone. Press the switch and the transmitter is activated; release switch to receive. When transmitting (on a clear channel), hold the microphone two inches from the mouth and speak clearly in a normal voice.
Sound clarity is measured by the ratio of the signal level to the noise level. The higher the signal-to-noise ratio, the better the sound. HOW SOUNDTRACKER WORKS
Be sure the antenna is properly connected to the radio before transmitting. Prolonged transmitting without an antenna, or a poorly matched antenna, could cause damage to the transmitter. Operating Procedure for Public Address
On ReceptionCuts Noise Coming In
With a normal CB, distant signals fall below the squelch level and are unintelligible. With a SoundTracker CB, the noise level is cut by up to 90%, which increases the signal-to-noise ratio and dramatically improves signal clarity. This also allows you to significantly reduce the squelch level, which greatly expands your listening range.
Connect a PA speaker to the PA jack provided on the rear panel. Place PA/CB/ANL switch into the PA position. Depress push-to-talk switch on micspeak in normal voice. Adjust PA speaker volume with front panel DYNAMIKE control. When the Volume control is rotated clockwise, activity on the CB channel will be heard through the PA speaker. Operating Procedure to Receive Weather Band
Place CB/WX Switch in the WX position Turn the Weather Channel Selector (1-7) until you find the Weather Channel with the clearest reception. Sometimes more than one channel can be received depending on your location in the broadcast area; however, the closest broadcast to you will be the one with the clearest signal (the least static or background noise). If threatening weather is nearby, the National Weather Service may broadcast a 10 second alert tone. This tone will be heard through the CB, even if the CB/WX Switch is in the CB mode or the unit is turned off if desired (see NOTE below). This enables you to monitor CB frequencies and still be warned by the National Weather Service Emergency Alert. When you hear the alert, place the CB/WX switch in the WX position. You will then be able to hear the Weather Warning Broadcast. NOTE: If you are using the CB mode, remember to change the CB/WX Switch from CB to WX every so often to make sure you are continually tuned to the clearest/closest weather band channel in case an alert is broadcast. You can completely disable the Emergency Weather Alert feature by turning the Weather Channel Selector to the OFF position.

On TransmissionStrengthens Signals Going Out
A SoundTracker CB strengthens the transmit signal by more effectively using the available RF power output of the CB. The result is improved transmission signal clarity and an expanded transmission range.
Maintenance and Adjustment
The COBRA CB transceiver is specifically designed for the environment encountered in mobile installations. The use of all solid state circuitry and its light weight result in high reliability. Should a failure occur, however, review the following, then if necessary, replace parts only with identical parts. Do not substitute. Refer to the schematic diagram and parts. 1. 2. Check connections to the source of power and make sure it is the 13.8 VDC required to operate your radio. Check the fuse in the DC power cord. The main power lead (red wire) has a 2 Amp 3AG type fuse in its holder. Use only the above specified type and size fuse for maximum protection. Failure to do so, will void the warranty. Make certain the microphone is properly plugged in. Make certain the antenna is properly connected and tuned for minimum SWR. NOTE: COBRA antennas include full instructions as to how to tune your antenna. If you're still in doubt about the procedure, contact the COBRA dealer from whom you purchased your radio and antenna, for advice. If you hired an installer to install your radio and antenna, contact the installer.
