How to reach out farther.

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.

Connecting a Cobra 29LTD to a Pyramid PS-3KX 13.8VDC Power Supply


The wires should just attach to the red and black terminals on the radio, strip some wire unscrew the terminals a little wrap behind, and tighten again. Good luck! Or buy some banana plugs and they will plug right in the front

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" again.

The initial posting would still hold true, best would be:
  • remove TR18;
  • replace 2SC2069 with 2SC1969; and
  • adjust L12, 13 & 14.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
