Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio
I would like to know the most cost efficient way to get a little more distance out of my cb. I have a Cobra 29LTD Classic side mic, older model that I recently purchased, I'm not sure whats been done to it but I do know that it's had talkback installed.
Well, it probably already has been peaked out. With out knowing what has been done by some one else, I cannot recommend any modifications to the radio. there are some mods that conflict with other mods.
Older side mic radios can possibly be really loud radio's. It needs to be modded by some one who knows what they are doing. Little work to the transition line, and a bit to the audio section of the radio.
CB radio's work by line of site. More range comes from less obstructions. Hight is might. If its a base station, the higher the antenna, the farther you will get out.
If its on a vehicle, just use a good antenna tune to the best SWR. Other then that, the only other thing you can do is use a linear amplifier, which can be expensive, and the radio needs to have a low dead key so it will not blow the amp.
more power will get out better, but if you are behind a hill, or mountain, or in a valley or something, it won't matter how much power you have, because your signal is line of site.
