I believe this is identical to what you are looking for.
Atleast the xrs-797 was notated as the 9930.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: cobra 29 ltd classic antenna calibration ??

Wow. That's not at all a solution to what this guy is asking. And why all the caps??

The one point jm77437 has that is correct is that you do not set the radio, you set the antenna. The rest is blah blah.

Here is how you tune your antenna for you radio. First off it depends on what kind of antenna you have. most fiberglass antennas have a tunable tip to adjust the height of the antenna. Metal whips either have a collar at the base that the whip will either slide up or down in to adjust the height. The other type of metal whip's you have to physically clip to shorten the antenna, you must be careful with this type because once its clipped, that's it. You cannot add what you cut off.

I am going to give this example using a metal whip with an adjustable collar.

First after your radio is hooked up in the vehicle, drive to an open lot. Buildings and other structures can cause extra reflection. turn to channel 1. Flip the meter to CAL. Key the mic without talking. Now turn the CAL knob up until the needle reaches the little upside down triangle all the way to the right marked CAL. Now you have just celebrated your radio for your setup to measure you SWR. Now while still holding the key, flip the meter switch to SWR. The needle will move, and where it stops is your SWR reading. The lower the better. Anything under 1.5 is considered really good. But still, the lower the better.

Make note of what your SWR was on ch 1.

Now flip to channel 40. Repeat the SWR process. You must recalabrate each time you take a reading.

Now like jm77437 said. If your SWR reading is higher on 40 then 1, then your antenna is too long, and you must make it shorter. Loosen the collar and lower the antenna in the collar 1/4 inch at a time. check the swr each time you adjust the antenna.

If your SWR reading is higher on channel 1, then your antenna is too short. You must make your antenna longer. Do this by loossening the collar and pulling the antenna upward in the collar 1/4 inch at a time, again checking the swr each time you adjust the antenna.

What you want to achieve is having the same SWR reading on channel 1 and 40. then you have the best match you are going to get with that antenna.

If your swr is under 1.5 on all channels, you don't need to fuss unless you are a perfectionist. then by all means go ahead.

If your reading is higher then 3, or your ant light comes on, something is really wrong. Make sure your antenna is connected all the way, and the coax is not damaged.

Its important to have an appropriate SWR because if you do not, you are reflecting too much signal back into the radio, and eventually you will burn out your final transistor, and your radio will be toast.

Some tips: make sure you check the swr with the doors and windows shut. Make sure you are in an open lot. Remember to calabrate ecah time you take a reading. If you have had your radio peaked by a radio shop, and they have lowered your dead key, or have done a swing modification, then the meter in your radio will not work when taking an SWR reading and you will have to use an external meter.

You should not calibrate the antenna before you install it on the car!! the antenna needs to be calibrated on the vehicle that it is going to be on. Type of vehicle, different mounts, and many other variables can change the amount of reflection you will get.

j0hn9999 did a much better job but left some info out.

Take your SWR readings on channel 1, then on channel 40.... NOW, if your SWR is higher on ch 40 then ch 1, then your antenna is too long and it needs to be shortened. Refer to the antenna instructions on how to shorten the antenna.

If your SWR is higher on ch 1 then on ch 40 then your antenna is too short. You must lengthen the antenna. Again refer to your antenna instructions on how to lengthen your antenna.

You must calibrate each time you take a reading.

Make sure your doors and windows are shut when taking a reading

Make sure you are in an open lot when taking a reading as buildings, trees and other structures can cause reflection and give you an inaccurate reading.

If you adjust the length of your antenna on another vehicle and then put it on yours, the SWR will be off. It will need to be tuned again.

An external meter is better then the one in the radio, but will need to be hooked up in the vehicle you have the antenna on.

If you are not running any kind of power, or do not have a swing kit installed, and the radio is stock, the meter in the radio is more then enough to get a correct SWR reading.

SOURCE: Cobra 1000 GTL by Dynascan

This is a complicated modification. I have never done it to a 1000 GTL, but its done basically the same in all radio's.

I don't recommend doing it, especially since I am not 100% sure on how exactly to do it. I have never been in a 1000 gtl. If I had one in front of me I could tell you for sure how to do it.

If the reason for Variable power is a linear, just a swing kit in for the dead key you need, most likely 2 watts, and leave it.

Here is how to do a variable power mod. this is assuming the swing mod is done the same to this as a cobra 25/29 or uniden 68/76 etc.

If you would like to try it, here it is.

You get a TIP31 transistor, Radioshack has them.

Where you put the swing mod in the radio, which is a cap and a resistor, you put the TIP31 and cap. A 47uf cap works fine.

With the resistor facing you, and the tab in the back away, solder the cap to the transistor. the leg with the black stripe goes on the right most leg. then the other goes to the center leg of the transistor.

Solder a wire on the left most leg, long enough to reach the front of the radio. Now solder the 2 legs that don't have the wire on it, in the place where you would put the swing kit, with the black stripe on the cap facing the back of the radio usually.

Remove the wires from the RF gain and solder them together.

Now solder the wire from the transistor to the center tab.

Remove VR6 and solder a wire from the top tag of the RF gain to the top connection of VR6 that you removed.

Then connect a wire from the bottom tag to a ground point. The side of a tuning can works fine.

Take a piece of shrink tube and put it over the TIP31 so it does not ground against the heat sink, that would be bad.

This is done basically the same in all cb radio's.

Its probably wired different than Cobra like Microphones are. If you tamper with wires you may try combinations and it may work. Otherwise, best to buy Cobra replacement.
