Question about Cobra 29 WX NW ST 40-Channels Base CB Radio

1 Answer

Power options at home for Cobra 29.

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....

Cobra 29 cb not receiving station 1 thru 22


Cannot even begin to answer . It is complicated and tedious process but it all has to do with your processor and that its not obtaining the correct frequencies via the oscellator. In other words its in your vco section of the radio so get a schematic and a block diagram and go for it.

Is it possible to convert the cobra 29 wx nw st sound tracker cb to 10 meter amateur band?


No it cannot. If you want that buy a Ranger or a Galaxy.

The 29 can be altered to increase modulation and turned down in power to match it to amp for increased output of power.

Set to dead key a watt or so with a 100 watt amp it would dead key low and swing to 80 to 100 watts pep.(peak envelope power)

How do turn a stock one up? cobra 29ltd and a night watch 25


We all know one is not "supposed" to up the power on a standard CB to more than 4 puny watts...lol. Get your favorite local technician to do a good combination of power/modulation final tuning. Excellent modulation is what really makes the difference, along with a strong power mike. Cobras are known for good quality modulation! Thanks, Bill

Cobra 29 ltd sound tracker cb


you start by replacing every electr cap as most cb radios live in a hostile enviorment, They ALL suffer from dried up electolite. if the set is old ,that will be you first step,if you are up to speed with desoldering with out lifting copper tracks/etc, no reason why you can't have a go...do not shift trim pots or tuning can slugs
with out marking their factory positions as this can end up in a
mess
