+ POWER –
Before installing the CB radio
to the battery or fuse block,
visually check the vehicle’s
battery connection to determine which terminal, positive
or negative, is earthed (positive is the larger of the two) to
the engine block (or chassis).
A negatively earthed vehicle
has its negative lead grounded to the chassis.

Plug power cable into back of unit marked
“Power”. Be sure to observe polarity markings.

Mount the microphone
bracket on either side
of the unit (driver’s left)
using two screws supplied. Bracket should be
placed under the dash
so microphone is readily
accessible.

Connect the black lead to the negative side
of the vehicle. This is usually the chassis. Any
convenient location with a good electrical
contact (remove paint) may be used.
If microphone is not
connected, audio will not

Antennas
Ignition Noise Interference
CB Antenna
CB Antenna
Since the maximum allowable power output of
the transmitter is limited, the antenna is critical in
affecting transmission distance. Only a properly
matched antenna system will allow maximum
power output. Cobra loaded type antenna models
are highly recommended for most installations.

The transceiver will not operate at maximum
efficiency in a boat without a ground plate,
(unless it has a steel hull). Before attempting
installation , consult your dealer for information
regarding an adequate earthing system and prevention of electrolysis between fittings in the hull
and water.

29LXEU_MANL_ENG_vD.indd 6-7
Use of a mobile receiver at low signal levels is
normally limited by the presence of electrical
noise. The primary source of noise in automobiles is from the alternator and ignition system.
Typically, when signal level is adequate, the backearth noise does not present a serious problem.
Also, when extremely low level signals are being
received, the transceiver may be operated with
the vehicle’s engine turned off. The unit requires
very little current and therefore will not significantly discharge the vehicle’s battery.
Even though the Cobra 29 LX EU has an automatic noise limiter, in some installations ignition
interference may be high enough to make good
communications impossible. Many possibilities
exist and variations between vehicles require
different solutions. Consult your Cobra dealer or
a 2-way radio technician for help in locating the
source of a severe noise.
