Re: cobra 29 delta tune
For normal operation, set this control to the center position.
This feature has several uses and can help receiver operation.
If a received signal is slightly off frequency, the Delta-Tune control can be used to òfine-tuneó your receiver. Fine tuning is accomplished by listening for a more readable signal at the speaker or by noting the Smeter reading when the Delta-Tune control is operated. Another use of this control is eliminating adjacent interference (bleed over from other channels). If an exceptionally high level signal from an adjacent channel is creating interference on the channel being used, the Delta-Tune can be used to minimize or eliminate the interference. Rotate the control until you obtain minimum adjacent channel interference. NOTE: Delta-Tune is operable only in the receive mode.
It doesn't actually help receive any better, just can help kinda like a clairifier.

The mic gain is your output audio volume or modulation. RF Gain is you reception sensitivity. Delta tune is a gimmick it is supposed to slide the frequency a few kHz up or down for you reception of a radio that might have drifted off channel. Talkback is a tool to give you an idea of what you sound like ie quality of mic or volume or adjusting echo if you have added such a board to your radio. As far as adjustments RF gain is preferance. Mic all the way up on stock radio. Delta tune 12 o'clock. Talkback user preference. Take care......hope this was of help
There are many causes for poor reception on a cb radio one cause may be poor or poorly assembled antenna, a good antenna should be of highest gain and put up as high as possible ,An omnidirectional antenna or Ground plane will hear moderately well
in all directions but a directional antenna or Yagi will hear great only in the direction it is turned you will certainly have to decide what you or your homeowners association will allow.
Also and finally The sun is a major factor in communications Propagation sometimes no mater what your setup the reception is terrible.
hello firstly it would be wise to connect your power lead directly to your battery
secondly have you checked the vswr on the antenna make sure it is tuned to your radio i presume you have an swr metre and lastly check all coax connection make sure none are shortening out check pl259 at rear of radio and also check lead goin into antenna you can ajust the antenna by raising or lowering the whip .when you acheive 1.5 or better tighten up it should work ok for then
First try getting a good antenna. I don't know what you have BUT STAY AWAY FROM "RUBBER DUCKY" ANTENNA'S!!! Check your SWR's! Make sure the RF Gain is maxed Make sure the SQUELCH is all the way to the left "WILDCAT" IN LAURELVILLE OHIO 35 YEARS OF CB FUN!!!
You should check the coax cables for damage . ALso, did you attach the PL-259 connectors yourself to the coax cables? They can be tricky. You need to check for loose or bad connections between coax cable and connector.
Of course it could be the radio itself went bad on you. Check this with a friend; when you connect his radio to your antenna system, does everything work then? Hope this helps.
Hi, my name is John. As long as your SWR is not over a two, and the antenna are the same length and grounded good, it should be the same end result, no difference.........hope this was very helpful.Rate this solution on the four thumbs-up.......John
An external antenna will make an improvement over the embedded one. The longer, the better.
You can re-use the original speakers & wiring for an after market setup. You should obtain a Haynes service manual for your car, as it has the wiring diagram for the factory radio, including color codes of the wiring. You will need this info to re-use the factory speakers & wiring.
