Hook radio to antenna. Key radio. Pester nearest trucker for radio check on ch 19. Can trucker hear you OK? Can you hear trucker OK? then meter is bad or connection to meter bad.

Can you hear truckers, but they can't hear you? Final Output transistor is bad...

For the money,the Cobra 29 nw/st is just as good if not better than a Galaxy. Cobra is more durable by far. I have had 3 of these cobra's in the last 30 years. Only had to replace the last one because the tractor got hit by lightning.
Sure would not pay big money for a name.

if a mod has been done to the cobra 29 (all 29,s)the light will come on just find vr6 audio the radio as it comes on adjust vr6 untill it goes away,,,,always trust your watt meter(s.w.r scale)over the flashing light its really easy to do it beats paying a shop $10-$15

Cobra 29 ltd Classic no sound, no rx, all lights work rx,tx, lite up. The SWR meter moves when mic is keyed up.


Check speaker and plug external one in if you have it.

swap mic could be a broke wire or bad switch in handset.

check antenna and coax connections.

i know checks sound basic but they could save you a lot of headaches later

Red RX/TX and red ANT light on my CB


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...

Check D23 and D28. They are polarity protection diodes. It could also be the power knob.
