Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio
I have a 29ltd classic with a super tune and the stock mic. at close range of a 1/4 mile or less I can pick up just fine and I can send even better. But further than that I can pick up to about 1.5-2 miles but I can just barley send. When I key the mic. up swr goes to 6 on the meter and the ant lite comes on every time I key up. I have checked all the connections in the case and even took it to a cb shop who sed it all looked good just to replace the antina with a better one was using 2 freightliner antinas. I have a 9 foot coax cabel that is new ran through a wilson T-connector. When I had it tuned about a year ago it worked greate but after leting it set a whyle It doesent want to work thanks for any advise you can give me. Also what do you think about the antinas that they clame are rated at 200,000 wats are they worth the money or not? Thanks agen.
Try a different antenna. In my opinion, Moonraker antennas are the best. However they are the biggest of all CB antennas. They're smallest antenna measures close to about 40ft long. They're made for long range communication. They are pricey but well worth it. I recently got a Moonraker for my Galaxy DX2517 base station, it has a 50ft metal whip with power supply box which increases the output power. I can talk all the way to canada just using the pure power of my radio, and I live in Virginia. I'm telling you, if you get a Moonraker, you're set for life. And about your radio problem, umm, it might be your antenna, sometimes when you have a dual antenna input, it messes with the modulator and the frequency amplitude. It's best to just have one antenna.
Hope this helps!
