Could be a number of things. Assuming the mike gain is turned up, the mike or transmit audio circuit may be defective.

give it a flick with your finger to see what happens.It may work or it may not but whatever it is a diode that controls the meter and that diode needs to be changed.there are 4 diodes in the front of the radio,change all 4.

Why the swr meter do not set it goes all the way in the righthand corner this is for the astatic 600

there are knobs on the front.from the left is the set knob for SWR then next to it is the adjust knob. Turn the adjust knob to the left until the needle points to set. then take the first knob and turn it to the key the mic again The needle should move to a more respectable number.

I don't know how to use this.

you hook a jumper wire from your radio to radio input of the meter . Then hook your antenna to the other side of the meter., Turn the radio on to channel 40 make sure your meter is set for for,now key the mic.make the adjustment to cal on meter. Now put the meter on ref , key the mic and write down that number. Now go to channel 1 and do the same. If your numbers are under a 2.1 you are ok. you should also check it again on channel 20 or 19.

First the light in the meter is out. Next People can hear me but when they come back they break up. It seems to happen more when the truck is moving. When I key the mic up the green light turns red and the...

Check your antenna, have someone tap on it with a non-conductive stick (while standing several feet away) while you listen and watch the transmit for an intermittent problem coinciding with the tapping. If that checks good then check your coax and connectors.

Your panel meter may need a new lamp, an LED would last longer than an incandescent. Be sure to add a limiting resistor in series with an LED for 12vdc.

Cobra 29 nw when you key the radio the swr meter doesnt move and if you move the swicth to cal you can adjust it with out keying the mike but has good recive any help would be good thanks dwayne

To check the SWR, you put the swicth on CAL and key the mike with mike gain turned down all the way,then calabrate it to the meter on the CAL scale,then swicth it to SWR before you unkey the mike, then what ever the needle falls back to, that is your SWR reading.

I have a cobra 200 gtl dx and some one make modification on it to get more power and more modulation but i see in my books the modification to raise up on the board in front of my cb tell me to raise up...

you do not do it by resistance. To turn up the radio it is a variable resistor. What you do is connect a watt meter that can read PEAK or PEP watts AND AVERAGE or dead key watts.

First you check it on avg watts. Hook the radio up in line with the watt meter and set it on avg watts. key the radio. Stock is 4 watts. A lot of times when you peak a radio, you lower the dead key.(thats keying with no audio.) This allows you to get more modulation wattage, or swing wattage. If that has been done it will probably do 2 or 3 watts. If it has had the AM power raised in it, it could be more, this is no good. You want your dead key a bit lower.

Now check it on peak. Flip the meter to peak and make an AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH noise into the radio. It should swing to anywhere between 15 and 20 watts.

You adjust the AMC while giving it audio and watching the meter on peak to adjust the modulation. 4 watts is legal modulation.

Cobra 29 ltd classic needle doesn't work correctly

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.
