How To Use Your
The CB Story
The Citizens Band lies between the shortwave broadcast and 10-meter Amateur
radio bands, and was established by law in 1949. The Class D two-way communications service was opened in 1959. (CB also includes a Class A citizens band
and Class C remote control frequencies.)
FCC regulations permit only “transmissions” (one party to another) rather than
“broadcasts” (to a wide audience). Thus, advertising is not allowed on CB
Channels because that is “broadcasting.”

“Cuts Static coming in, adds Punch going out!”
Cobra proudly introduces the first Patent Pending technology that dramatically
improves the transmission and reception of CB radio signals.
This revolutionary system reconfigures the transmission signal which allows it to
be transferred more effectively through cluttered airwaves. It literally “punches”
your message through the hundreds of thousands of signals that are in the air. At
the same time, SoundTracker system dynamically adjusts the relationship between
the signal and static commonly referred to as noise. This allows Cobra’s
SoundTracker system to significantly reduce the amount of static on all incoming
CB signals. The system can be further optimized when two SoundTracker CB’s are
used to talk to each other.
The end result is a clearer, cleaner sounding reception of signals and more
powerful transmissions which dramatically improve CB Communications
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 operators license.

Installation
Location
Plan the location of the transceiver and microphone bracket before starting the
installation. Select a location that is convenient for operation and does not interfere with the driver or passengers in the vehicle. In automobiles, the transceiver
is usually mounted to the underneath of the dash panel, with the microphone
bracket beside it.
Installation (Cont.)
3.
Connect the antenna cable plug to the standard receptacle on the unit. Most
CB antennas are terminated with a type PL-259 plug which mates with the
receptacle marked "ANT."
4.
Connect the red lead of DC power cord to +13.8 VDC. In automobile installations, +13.8 VDC is usually obtained from the accessory contact in the fuse
box. This prevents the set being left on accidentally and also permits operating the unit without the vehicle's engine running.
Mounting and Connection
Before installing the CB radio, visually check the vehicle battery connections to determine which battery terminal, positive or negative (positive is
the larger of the two) is grounded to the engine block (or chassis).
The transceiver is held in the universal mounting bracket by two thumbscrews,
permitting adjustment at the most convenient angle.
Auniversal mounting bracket is supplied along with self tapping screws and star
washers. The mounting must be mechanically strong and also provide a good
electrical connection to the chassis of the vehicle. To mount the transceiver:
1.
2.
Determine the most convenient location in your vehicle, hold the COBRA
radio with mounting bracket in the exact location desired. If nothing
will interfere with mounting it in the desired position, remove the
mounting bracket and use it as a template to mark the location for the
mounting screws.
5.
Connect the black lead to the negative side of the automobile. This is usually
the chassis of the car. Any convenient location with good electrical contact
(remove paint) may be used. Plug power cable into jack on back of transceiver.
In positive ground automobiles the red wire goes to the chassis and the
black wire is connected to the ignition switch.
6.
Mount microphone bracket on right side of the transceiver, or near it using
two screws supplied. When mounting in an automobile, place the bracket
under the dash so the microphone is readily accessible.
Drill necessary holes and secure mounting bracket in location.

CB Antenna
Ignition Noise Interference
Since the maximum allowable power output of the transmitter is limited by the
FCC, the antenna is one important factor affecting transmission distance. Only a
properly matched antenna system will allow maximum power transfer from the
50 ohm transmission line to the radiating element. In mobile installations (cars,
trucks, boats, etc.), an antenna system that is non-directional should be used.
Use of a mobile receiver at low signal levels is normally limited by the presence
of electrical noise. The primary source of noise in automobile installations is from
the alternator and ignition system in the vehicle. Under most operating conditions,
when signal level is adequate, the background noise does not present a serious
problem. Also, when extremely low level signals are being received, the transceiver
may be operated with vehicle engine turned off. The unit requires very little
current and therefore will not significantly discharge the vehicle battery.
A vertically polarized, quarter-wavelength whip antenna provides the most reliable operation and greatest range. Shorter, loaded-type whip antennas are more
attractive, compact and adequate for applications where the maximum possible
distance is not required. Also, the loaded whips do not present the problems of
height imposed by a full quarter-wavelength whip.
Mobile whip antennas utilize the metal body of the vehicle as a ground plane.
When mounted at a corner of the vehicle they are slightly directional, in the direction of the body of the vehicle. For all practical purposes, however, the radiation
pattern is nondirectional. The slight directional characteristic will be observed
only at extreme distances. A standard antenna connector (type SO-239) is provided
on the transceiver for easy connection to a standard PL 259 cable termination.
Cobra loaded type antenna models are highly recommended for most installations. Consult your Cobra dealer for further details, or call 773-889-3087 and
speak to a Cobra customer representative.
When installed in a boat, the transceiver will not operate at maximum efficiency
without a ground plate, unless the vessel has a steel hull. Before installing the transceiver in a boat, consult your dealer for information regarding an adequate grounding system and prevention of electrolysis between fittings in the hull and water.
3-Way Combination Antennas are available which allow operation of all three
bands (AM-FM & 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. The
quality of reception of radio signals is highly dependent on the antenna system. Call 773-889-3087 for further information.
Even though the COBRA21 LTD ST has an automatic noise limiter, in some installations ignition interference may be high enough to make good communications
impossible. The electrical noise may come from several sources. Many possibilities exist and variations between vehicles require different solutions to reduce the
noise. Consult your COBRAdealer or a 2-way radio technician for help in locating and correcting the source of severe noise.
Base Station Operation (Operation from 120VAC, House Current)
To operate your transceiver from your home or office, using the regular house
current as the power source, you will require a 12 VDC power pack that has been
specially designed for the purpose. It is available as optional equipment from
your COBRAdealer. It consists of a 120-volt, 60 Hz AC to 12-volt DC power converter that delivers the required power for the operation of the transceiver. Simply
connect the red (+) and black ( - ) leads of the transceiver to the corresponding
terminals of the power packs.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPERATE THIS TRANSCEIVER BY
CONNECTING DIRECTLY TO 120 VAC.
Temporary Mobile Operation
To operate your COBRA transceiver from a car on a temporary basis, you may
want to purchase an optional cigar lighter adapter from your COBRAdealer. This
adapter and a magnetic mount antenna allow you to quickly "install" your transceiver for temporary use.

How SoundTracker Works
SOUNDTRACKER SYSTEM
While previous systems only “blanked out” or limited noise in higher sound
frequencies, the revolutionary new SoundTracker System actually reduces noise
while leaving the signal intact in the reception mode. In the transmission mode,
it actually strengthens the signal, providing you with a significant reduction in
noise on reception and transmission.
Sound clarity is measured by the ratio of the signal level to the noise
level. The higher the signal-to-noise ratio, the better the sound.
HOW SOUNDTRACKER WORKS
On Reception– “Cuts Noise Coming In”
With a normal CB, distant signals fall below the squelch level and are unintelligible. With a SoundTracker CB, the noise level is cut by up to 90%, which
increases the signal-to-noise ratio and dramatically improves signal clarity. This
also allows you to significantly reduce the squelch level, which greatly expands
your listening range.
On Transmission–“Strengthens Signals Going Out”
A SoundTracker CB strengthens the transmit signal by more effectively using
the available RF power output of the CB. The result is improved transmission
signal clarity and an expanded transmission range.

Maintenance and Adjustment
Appendix
The COBRA CB transceiver is specifically designed for the environment encountered in mobile installations. The use of all solid state circuitry and its light weight
result in high reliability. Should a failure occur, however, review the following,
then if necessary, replace parts only with identical parts. Do not substitute. Refer
to the schematic diagram and parts.
Citizens Band radio operators have largely adopted the “10-code” for standard
questions and answers. Its use permits faster communications and better understanding in noisy areas. The following table lists some of the more common codes
and their meanings:
1.
Check connections to the source of power and make sure it is the 13.8 VDC
required to operate your radio.
2.
Check the fuse in the DC power cord. The main power lead (red wire) has a
2 Amp 3AG type fuse in its holder. Use only the above specified type and
size fuse for maximum protection. Failure to do so, will void the warranty.
3.
4.
Make certain the microphone is properly plugged in.
Make certain the antenna is properly connected and tuned for minimum
SWR. NOTE: COBRA antennas include full instructions as to how to tune
your antenna. If you're still in doubt about the procedure, contact the
COBRA dealer from whom you purchased your radio and antenna, for
advice. If you hired an installer to install your radio and antenna, contact the
installer.
If you are unable to correct the problem, refer the WARRANTY SERVICE
INSTRUCTIONS at the end of this manual for the correct procedure for warranty
and post-warranty service from COBRA.
Adjustment Warning
Replacement or substitution of certain parts with replacements other than those
recommended by COBRA, may be a violation of the technical regulations of Part
95 of the FCC Rules, or of Type Acceptance requirements of Part 2 of said rules.
When making adjustments other than transmitter adjustments, be sure to re-read
applicable portions of this instruction manual to make certain you are following
correct procedure and that the radio was properly installed, etc.
