Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio
Hooked up old Cobra cb, model 29 ltd, can hear and transmit but swr meter not moving. Can't even try to cal. using cb manual. Meter just doesn't move much.
Radios get bumped and banged around sometime they can be quite durable but other times all it takes is a little jar to disturb the TX or RX alignment.
The meter not moving far on CAL could be a bad meter not likely or maybe your deadkey/carrier power is below 4 watts which may indicate it has been lowered on purpose to drive a linear amplifier this is often accomplished with a swingkit which is the addition of a resistor and capacitor. Some misguided radio shops do this to get the modulation up.

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.
