Question about Cobra 29 WX NW ST 40-Channels Base CB Radio
Hi, I want to play around at home with my old CB. It is a Cobra 29 night watch sound tracker. My main concern is how to get the peak performance from my power source. Would a cigarette lighter adapter work? Can I use an electric outlet? What are my options?
FIRST THINGS FIRST, YOU NEED AN ANTENNA THE BETTER THE ANTENNA THE BETTER PERFORMANCE YOU GET, TRY A IMAX 2000,THAN PUT IT AT LEAST 10-20 FEET INTO THE AIR, THAN GET A GOOD COAX TO RUN FROM ANTENNA TO RADIO, NOW GO GET A NICE POWER SUPPLY AT LEAST A 8-12 AMP 13.8 VOLT POWER SUPPLY, THAN CONNECT RADIO TO POWER SUPPLY, CONNECT COAX TO CB REMEMBER TO GET A SWR / POWER METER SO YOU CAN MAKE SURE THE SWR IS AT LEAST 1.1 :1 THIS IS BEST, BUT ANYTHING UNDER A 2 IS OK, YOU WILL NEED A COAX JUMPER FOR THE METER, AFTER YOU CHECK EVRYTHING OUT GOTO CHANNEL 19 THAT IS MOST OF THE TRUCK DRIVERS IN YOUR AREA AND TRY AND TALK TO THEM, IF YOU ASK FOR A RADIO CHECK THEY MAY HERE YOU BUT ARE NOT UNDER ANY OBLIGATION TO ANSWERE YOU, SO LISTEN, ALWAYS ASSUME THEY DO HEAR YOU, IF YOU WANT MORE FUN OR BANG FOR THE BUCK GET A SIDEBAND RADIO
TALKS FURTHER, YOU LISTEN TO CHANNEL LSB 38 , MOST PEOPLE TALK HERE ARE IN THE U.S.A. EAST COAST TO WEST COAST NORTH TO SOUTH, HAVE FUN IT IS A HOBBY...HOPE YOU LIKE IT IF YOU CHOOSE IT....
