FCC Regulations
FCC regulations
permit only “transmission” (one-party to another) rather than
Warning
“broadcast” (to a wide audience). Thus, advertising is not allowed on CB channels
because that is “broadcasting”.
FCC Warnings
All transmitter adjustments other than those supplied by the manufacturer as front
panel operating controls, must be made by, or under the supervision of, the holder
of an FCC-issued general Radio-Telephone Operator’s License.
Replacement or substitution of transistors, regular diodes or other parts of a unique
nature, with parts other than those recommended by Cobra, may cause violation of
the technical regulations of Part 95 of the FCC Rules, or violation of Type Acceptance
requirements of Part 2 of the Rules.
You should read and understand Part 95 (included with this unit) of the FCC Rules
and Regulations, before operating your Cobra radio, even though the FCC no longer
requires you to obtain an operator’s license.

details (or see order info on page 16).
Three-way combination antennas are available which
allow operation of all three bands (AM-FM and CB),
using a single antenna. However, use
of this type of antenna usually results in less
than normal transmit and receive range when
compared to a standard-type “Single Band” antenna
designed for CB only.
