Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio
For "receive" you would have no problems using it a you mentioned, 1/4 wave whip is nearly the same as a full wave FM.
27-28 mhz vs. 88-108 mhz = Better!
One disadvantage though..... wagging antenna will cause problems with weak stations in some locations.

OUCH! Cb antennas are cut to a specific frequency. FM antennas are also cut to a specific frequency. If you ground the antenna to a frame, you short out the antenna. BAD THING. If it is a 102" whip, you would have to cut off about 2/3's of the whip to work. If there is a cylinder at the base of the antenna You would only need about 7' of the whip sticking out for it to work right. Inside the cylinder there is a coil that would make up for the missing length of a 102" whip. I would suggest finding an old CB with FM built in like one of the old SEARS CB/FM receivers.
They had the electronics built in to compensate for the varience in the old sets.
