Dynamike Gain Control varies the microphone sensitivity. When set fully clockwise, it is very sensitive - and will be able to "hear" background noises easily. This position also can cause your voice to be distorted or garbled when approaching maximum under the right conditions as well as causing "bleed over" to adjacent channels. When set to minimum, you will need to speak clearly and directly into the microphone to be heard. Most people find a setting somewhere in the middle works best.

You should adjust the level to suit those that are listening to you by asking them if it sounds OK. This prevents them from having to turn their volume down whenever you speak. In a "one-to-one" conversation it is not as noticeable. The trouble comes when 3 or more are conversing. The third person's audio may be low or normal - and the listeners set their radio's volume so that they can hear that person easily. Then you transmit with booming mic audio and everyone scrambles to turn down the volume to save their ears / speakers. This can be very frustrating for the others having to constantly adjust the radio volume whenever you speak.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks.

I believe that your installation is faulty. Check for any shorts, solder bridges, and that instructions were followed correctly.

What is rf gain cotrol on a cobra cb radio

Rf gain on a cobra 29 is the same as on any other radio. When you turn the knob all the way to the right the RF increases to draw in signals that are far away nut if you turn it to the left only the nearest stations will be picked up.

Check that your mic gain or dynamike knob is turn clockwise if it is full counter clockwise you will have no modulation with your tx power.

Be aware that not all 4 pin mikes are wired the same.

I have the same radio as well. If you are running a "stock factory mic" this:
VOLUME: set to your comfort
SQUELCH:all the way to the left (if you don't mind hearing everything other wise adjust to the right to illiminate noise)
DYNAMIKE:If you have a factory mic or "noise canceling mic", turn all the way to the right (unless it squeals and then turn the mic gain down slowly until the squealing stops)
RF GAIN:that is your "receive" and I always turn it all the way to the right to maximize reception! In my opinion, this is the dumbest knob ever made since why not hear as good as you can??? thats what the SQUELCH is for!
Now as for the "SWITCHES"
The top left switch is the SWR and as I stated, do NOT trust it and leave it on "S/RF (TOP)
SWITCH TWO: If you have it on OFF, you may get allot of engine spark plug firing noise so I run mine in the "middle" (ANL)
FOURTH SWITCH: Brightness is to your liking!
There ya go! You can always set the switches to your liking and comfort.

Cant find 7 volt battery for dynamike plus cobra

At a pinch you can use 5 x LR44 button cells, yes that does add up to 7.5 volts but that's near enough, the 5 cells on top of each other are exactly the same size height and width as the 7 volt battery. I am using them in a "Telex" mike
