Cobra 29 LTD Classic not transmitting or receiving

I just bought and installed a Cobra 29 LTD Classic with a Firestik 2 (4') antenna on a 99 Dodge 2500. I mounted the antenna on my alunimum toolbox on the passenger side. I did ground the toolbox to the pickup. The radio turns on fine and everything apperas to be fine but the ANT light does not light up. I used good coax cable and it is not grounded out anywhere. I cant transmit or receive, I can hear nothing at all. Is this a antenna mounting problem? Thanks for any information.

    have you checked the mic? If thereis a wire broke in the mic it will cause this issue.

As I understand from a tech friend of mine, most truck beds are not grounded well enough. Perhaps you could borrow/purchase a magnet mount antenna and locate it on the roof, for testing. Then you would have it narrowed down to the location.

Cobra 29 ltd classic year 2004. rf gain problems.


Put SWR meter between your antenna and output, test wave length receive/transmit, might need a ground plane or center loaded stick.
Could be transceiver relay, try clicking mic fast, it should click out as fast as you key the mic.

When it's dry, I can't transmit, but when my antennas get wet,transmission doubles, WHY????


Hi John:
Try checking where the antenna is connected to the cable.
It may be corroded and you're not getting continuity unless it is wet.

I see two possible problems. First, with a magnetic antenna it is difficult to get the proper ground for the antenna. Make sure the magnetic base is clean as well as where you place it. Second, try running your power lead DIRECTLY to the battery and not using the cigarette lighter. Hope it helps.

I have a new cobra 148 with ssb, about 6 months old, while i was away there was a storm, now the radio doesnt work , recieve or transmit, i also have a cobra 29 ltd that wont transmit but it will recieve....


make sure the mic is good. If for some reason the mic went bad, it will not receive or transmit.

As for the one with no receive, it most likely needs a new final.

If lightning hit your antron, it would be in pieces.
