Here is a link to the Phantom CB's seb site, you can click on the brand of radio you want to peak, in you case, Cobra. Then follow through the chart to the Cobra 29 LTD Classic under the Cobra power mods, which tells you what to adjust and changes that can be made. Only one suggestion I have before you start, where it says to cut D11, don't, only turn up VR-4 for your modulation. That is the only thing I don't like with their instuctions is telling people to cut the modulation limiter. You can get full modulation by turning up the potentiometer, and if you cut the limiter, sometimes it will over modulate.

You need an inline power meter to peak the radio out. This is the quick and dirty way to peak and tune a radio. To properly align a radio, you really need an oscilloscope and other related test equipment.


If you have more questions, don't hesitate to post here or email me at rollincbmods@yahoo.com. I can't promise I will have an answer to all questions, but I will do the best I can to help.

You can get amplifiers, RF amplifiers, Power boosters and all kinds of stuff from Ebay. Just look up CB radio amplifiers.

I have a Cobra 29 Ltd Chrome CB Radio that I would like to know how to turn the power up, and the modulation, peak and tune


vr4 turn it to the left all the way and ask for a radio check.If no one can hear you then turn it all the way to the right and have someone give you a check. You may want to check the SWR to the antenna while your at it. Thats all you can legally do.

How do I adust the watts on my cobra 29 ltd CB


Replace the 2314 driver withe a 2SC2166 driver and the final transistor with a 2SC1969 final transistor. Re-tune coils L10,L9,L8 for maximum power. Don't cut d11 like some may say to. It will turn your radio into a crappy sounding radio. Simply adjust VR4. Never cut a limiter. This will get you some solid sounding power.

Not enough audio and i dont want a power mic i


Take off the cover, you will need a watt meter or mod meter to do this. On the circuit board, part side up, look for D11, and cut one end of it, hook up meter, key the mike and with a peaking or tuning tool, while saying aaahhhhhhh in a long and steady voice, tune L12,L13,L14 for highest peak, you can get the tool there also..put cover back on and enjoy.....hope this helps...

Just want know how to peak the power back up on my 29 ltd classic. its only putting out 2 watts on ch. 20 I suspect someone had a linnear on it prior.


Just tune L10,L9,L8 for maximum.

How electronically able are you?
I can tell you how to do what most call the super modulation mod, it isn't too hard and isn't very expensive. (Unless you take it to a CB shop!)

How do you tune and peak a cobra 29 ltd classic and how many watts will it put out after it is tunned and peaked


i would highly suggest you take it to a cb shop to get a cb tuned and peaked. before you do that though, make sure you have a good antenna system. a good antenna will have a much greater effect on your cb than tuning and peaking. as far as output, who knows? it all depends on the skill of the person doing the tuning. be warned that any output over 4 watts is illegal and you could recieve hefty fines if caught with an illegal radio.

Cobra 29 ltd classic side mic


First off I dont believe anyone to peek and tune but anyways. Make sure your mike is for the radio wiring. Next the guy that rigged it up might have gave you all the channels do all your knobs work??? usually you can tall as you get someone to talk with you a few blocks away and start, start turning and flipping switches till you can hear him most likely the guy that did the work on it messed it up. for a filter use a farite choke from radioshack on the mike wire.
