SOURCE: antenna light still on
The antenna warning light on the Cobra 29 LTD has a pot ( varabile resistor ) that sets the senativity of the light coming on. If you open the radio, you'le see the pot at the back of the radio. It's the last pot in the rear of the chassis Simply turn it more torward the center of the setting ( anyplace is ok as it means nothing to the preformance of the radio ). The light won't come on unless the SWR's are high. Good Luck and if I can help more, you can email me at this address or at my email address firstname.lastname@example.org.

You need to shorten the antenna,adjust the whip all the way down and see what you have and then cut off 1/4" at a time remember this low on 1 high on 40 it needs to be lengthened high on 1 low on 40 it needs to be shortened . I hope this helps and good luck.

SOURCE: swr meter not moving.
If the radio is working don't worry about the meter unless you absolutely want it. These little meters are not very accurate or reliable. Get an external SWR meter to check the antenna.

Well,first hand ,some cobra radio,s have red some have green RX/TX lights, but are you modulating? Some green lights turn red. What is your standing Wave on the antenna,s? You need to check it and the output of the radio. To do this you need a watt or field strenth meter. Can get one at Radio Shack. Your standing Wave is ok as long as it is below a 2. That has to be done on the antenna. ..hope this helps...
