Open the component / speaker side cover on the radio, adjust VR3, this is the alignment control for the squelch. Set your squelch control knob on the front of the radio to about 10 o'clock and slowly adjust VR3 until the signal from the speaker is mute.

When you turn the squelch back to the 0 position, you should have signal with no squelch as in normal operation.

When do you know if you have a decent radio


The 29 has a built in SWR meter--check the match to make sure it is below 2 (lower the better).

The radio can be peaked for better than factory audio.

If the squelch is up too high you will not hear people below a certain signal level---in your case set it so you hear who you want to and not jokers.

RF gain lowers signal the radio sees for receive.

The stock mic will work but make your voice somewhat flat sounding---a power mic or having the mod limiter removed will make the radio and your voice louder.

Let me know if questions.

Cobra 29ltd CLassic, TX power and audio is ok, volume from spkr is good, squelch works but no cb recieve.


Try a new Mic. Make sure its a working mic. If you have a bad mic, the receive will not work.

Have Cobra 29 LTD Classic, no sound when hooked to antenna, no light or meter movement on the RF/SWR meter, DOES have power to radio and channel display, any tips to repair, or check for problem areas?


check the squelch by turning all the way both ways. check the external speaker socket. if it is the swicthing type it could be either bad conntact or dry joints. try an external speaker to see if that works. another thing is I believe it wont work if the microphone is not pluged in or connection fault there. Good luck.

Cobra classic 29 ltd


Had fixed the same problem yesterday. My cobra worked when it wanted to, when it didn't it looked like you explained. I found out that on my cobra the blue wire on the mike connector was broken. When it disconnects, no sound. after soldering, everything works fine.

Cobra 29 issues


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