Installation
Location
Location
Plan location of transceiver and microphone
bracket before starting the installation.
Select a location that is convenient for operation,
yet does not interfere with the driver or passenger.
The transceiver is usually mounted to the
underside of the dash with the microphone
bracket beside it.

Connection
Mounting and Connection
1
Note
The transceiver is held in
the universal mounting bracket
by two thumbscrews which
allow for adjustment at a
convenient angle.
Hold the radio with the mounting bracket in
the exact desired location. If there is no
interference, remove the bracket and use it as
a template to mark the location for the
mounting screws.
3
Connect the antenna cable plug to the
receptacle marked “ANT” on the back of
the unit.
The bracket includes two
self-tapping screws and star
washers. The mounting must be
mechanically strong,
conveniently located.
2
Drill the holes and secure the bracket.

Installation
Note
Connecting to an accessory fuse
prevents the unit from being left
on accidentally, and also
permits operating the unit
without running the engine.
6
Plug power cable into back of unit marked
“Power”. Be sure to observe polarity markings.
7
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.
8
Attach the 4-pin microphone cable to
receptacle, on the front of unit and install unit
on bracket securely.
Note
In positive ground vehicles the
red wire goes to the chassis and
the black wire is connected to
the ignition switch.
Note
Before installing the CB radio,
visually check the vehicle’s
battery connection to
determine which terminal,
positive or negative, is
grounded (positive is the larger
of the two) to the engine block
(or chassis). A negatively
grounded vehicle has its
negative lead grounded to the
chassis.
4
4
In a negative grounded vehicle, connect the
red lead of the DC power cord to an accessory
12 volt fuse.
5
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.

Marine Installation
Ignition Noise Interference
Antennas
CB Antenna
Since the maximum allowable power output of the
transmitter is limited by the FCC and IC, 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. Consult
your Cobra dealer for further details.
CB Antenna
Note
For optimum performance in
passenger cars the ideal
antenna location is on the
center of the roof. Second
choice is on the
center of the trunk.
Marine Installation
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 grounding system and prevention of
electrolysis between fittings in the hull and water.
Iginition Noise Interference
1
Note
Because many newer trucks
feature fiberglass door skins,
the outside mirror must be
grounded to the chassis via a
ground strap when antenna is
mounted on the mirror bracket.
A standard antenna connector is provided
on the transceiver for easy connection.
*Under Industry Canada regulations, this radio
transmiter may only operate using an antenna of a
type and maximum (or lesser) gain approved for the
transmitter by Industry Canada. To reduce potential
radio interference to other users, the antenna type
and its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent
isotropically radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than
that necessary for successful communication.
Safety notice: The device complies with the MPE
requirements by providing a safe separation distance
of 14.2 in (36 cm) between the antenna, including any
radiating structure, and any persons when normally
operated . This is based on a typical installation and
an antenna with 3 dBi of gain. This device is approved
with emissions having a source-based time-averaging
duty factor not exceeding 50%.
Note
3-way Combination
Antennas are also available
which allow operation of all
three bands (AM-FM & CB),
using a single antenna.
However, this type of antenna
usually results in less than
normal transmit and receive
range when compared to a
standard-type “Single Band” CB
antenna. Contact your local
dealer for further information.
6
The transceiver will not operate at maximuUse 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 background
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 LTD Classic 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.

Operation
Calibrate for SWR (Standing Wave Ratio)
SWR calibration is done to properly adjust the
length of the antenna and to monitor the quality
of the coaxial cable and all RF connections.
This calibration is critical in order to achieve
optimum performance.
Note
Calibration must be made in an
open area (never in a garage).
Vehicle doors must be closed.
No one should be standing near
the antenna. (See your antenna
directions for more complete
information).

Cobra Electronics
Corporation

Chicago, Illinois 60707 USA
www.cobra.com
For Products Purchased in Canada
Your new Cobra CB radio is covered by a two year replacement
warranty. If any manufacturing defect becomes apparent in this
product within two years from the original date of purchase, it will be
replaced. Please return the CB radio to your dealer with original or copy
of dated proof of purchase. This warranty does not cover damages due
to careless handling, negligence, accident, abuse or failure to follow
operating instructions. Alteration of this product or defacing of the
serial number cancels all obligations of this warranty. This warranty
gives you specified legal rights. Additional warranty rights may be
provided by law in some areas.
For Products Purchased in the U.S.A.
Cobra Electronics Corporation warrants that its Cobra CB radios, and
the component parts thereof, will be free of defects in workmanship
and materials for a period of two years from the date of first consumer
purchase. This warranty may be enforced by the first consumer
purchaser, provided that the product is utilized within the U.S.A.
Cobra will, without charge, repair or replace, at its option, defective CB
radios, products or component parts upon delivery to the Cobra Factory
Service department, accompanied by proof of the date of first consumer
purchase, such as a duplicated copy of a sales receipt.
You must pay any initial shipping charges required to ship the
product for warranty service, but the return charges will be at Cobra’s
expense, if the product is repaired or replaced under warranty.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have
other rights which may vary from state to state.
Exclusions: This limited warranty does not apply: 1) To any product
damaged by accident; 2) In the event of misuse or abuse of the
product or as a result of unauthorized alterations or repairs; 3) If the
serial number has been altered, defaced or removed; 4) If the owner
of the product resides outside the U.S.A. All implied warranties,
including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular
purpose are limited in duration to the length of this warranty. Cobra
shall not be liable for any incidental, consequential or other
damages; including, without limitation, damages resulting from loss
of use or cost of installation.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied
warranty lasts and/or do not allow the exclusion or limitation of
incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may
not apply to you.
For Products Purchased Outside the U.S.A.
Please contact your local dealer for warranty information.

The CB Story
The Citizens Band lies between the shortwave broadcast

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.)

you by answering the most frequently asked questions about Cobra products.
(Technical assistance is also available on-line in the Frequently Asked Questions
(FAQ) section at www.cobra.com or by e-mail to productinfo@cobra.com
Industry Canada Notice: This device complies with
Industry Canada licence-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation
is subject to the following two conditions: 1) this device
may not cause interference, and 2) this device must accept
any interference, including interference that may cause
undesired operation of the device.
«IC» before the equipment certification number signifies
that the Industry Canada technical specifications were met.
It does not guarantee that the certified product will
operate to the user’s satisfaction.
FCC Regulations
FCC regulations permit only “transmission” (one-party to
another) rather than “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 FCCissued 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.
