Question about Cobra 29 LTD CHR CB Radio Chrome Special Edition
When your needle is all the way in the RED, your swr IS really high. That's what the meter is telling you. You need to clean all of the antenna connection points and adjust the length of the antenna to reduce the SWR (standing wave ratio) which is basically resistance to transmitting signals.

SOURCE: high SWR
the problem is in the antenna cable. the lenth of a antenna cable must be divisable by 3. try replaceing cable with a 18 foot cable that should fix the problem.

Don't worry about the meter in the radio. They are only close to actual reading any way. Just get an external meter. you are better off in the long run, and you don't have to mess with anything inside the radio if you don't know what your doing.
If you must have the meter working correctly, then take it to a truck stop CB shop, or any other cb shop and have it aligned. It should cost about $30. There is equipment needed to align a radio properly and the cost for it far exceeds what an external meter, or having a cb shop align the radio.

Rule of thumb is go by what the manual tells you. providing it is the manual that is for the radio.. that is why they make manuals for that particular radio a 1-1 to a 1-2 swr rating is really good providing you have no saturation on the internal filter. over saturation due to swr being set too high will eventually burn out the finals of a radio
i have delt with radio's for about 17 years now so i really suggest consult the users manual and always use only a authorized dealer for that particular radio just like my cobra 2000 i am not going to send it to a shop that just does radios i want a authorized cobra dealer ok i hope that this really helps ok please dont forget to give this solution a rate for me it helps me out so i can continue to help out others like yourself.
