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.

I have a cobra 29 Ltd chrome what is the dynamite and the rfgain and the delta tune and the talk back used for. What do you set it on


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

Poor reception


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.

There is no static on the gain knob and no light on ant. i can barely p/u any reception and lose reception quickly.


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

I have a basic 40-channel cobra cb radio and 2 four foot firestik whips mounted in the stake holes of my truck. I have dual 18 ft. coax connecting the two which is ran through 2 small holes near my door,...


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.

Reception is very poor. Grounding issues? Please


Reception has little to do with grounding. The ground plan is for transmitting. As long as the coax is connected and is in good standing, it should receive fine regardless of grounding.

There are a few reasons you may have bad reception.
  1. Turn the RF GAIN all the way up. This is your receive sensitivity.
  2. Squelch is too high. It should only be turned up enough to cut out the background noise.
  3. Poor antenna. If the antenna is cheap, and not made well, this could be the problem.
  4. Not enough of the antenna above the vehicle. It needs to be at least 60% of the antenna above the vehicle.
Hope this helps!

BMW 528i AM Radio Reception Problem


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.
