Note
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).
7Mount the 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.

CB Antenna
Note
Cobra loaded-type antenna
models HGA 1000, HGA 1500,
and HGA 2000 are highly recommended for most installations. Consult your Cobra dealer for further details (or see
order form at the back of
this book).
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.
CB Antenna
Only a properly matched antenna system will
allow maximum power output.
In mobile installations (cars, trucks, boats, etc.),
an antenna system that is non-directional should
be used.
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.

Squelch
This control is used to cut off or eliminate receiver
background noise in the absence of an incoming
signal. Adjust until the receiver noise disappears.
This will require the incoming signal to be slightly
stronger than average receiver noise. Further clockwise rotation will increase the threshold level
which a signal must overcome in order to be heard.
Only strong signals will be heard at a maximum
clockwise setting.

Operation
Soundtracker
System
The SoundTracker System reduces noise while
leaving the signal intact in the reception mode.
In the transmission mode, it strengthens the signal, providing you with a significant reduction in
noise on reception and transmission.
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.
USPat. No. 6,038,429
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.

Temporary
Mobile
Operation
Note
Red and Orange wires are connected to positive side of socket
center tip. Black wire is connected to negative side contacts.
Ignition Noise Interference
Use of a mobile receiver at low signal levels is normally limited by the presence of electrical noise.
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.
Even though this radio has an automatic noise limiter, in some installations ignition interference may
be high enough to make good communications
impossible. Consult your COBRA dealer or a 2-way
radio technician for help in locating and correcting
the source of severe noise.
Temporary Mobile Operation
For temporary mobile operation, you may want to
purchase an additional cigarette lighter adapter
from your COBRA dealer.This adapter and a magnetic mount antenna allow you to quickly "install"
your transceiver for temporary use.

Operation
Operating Procedure to Receive
1. Be sure that power cord, antenna and microphone are connected to the
proper connectors before proceeding further. The weather switch should
be in the "CB" position.
2. Turn the radio ON by rotating the VOLUME CONTROL clockwise.
3. Rotate SQUELCH CONTROL counterclockwise until incoming signal is
heard.
4. Select the desired channel.
5. Set VOLUME CONTROL to a comfortable listening level.
6. Engage the SoundTracker system by depressing the button labeled ST.
Listen to the background noise from the speaker. Turn the SQUELCH CONTROL slowly clockwise until the noise JUST disappears (no signal should be
present). Leave the control at this setting. The squelch is now properly
adjusted. The receiver will remain quiet until a signal is actually received. Do
not advance the control too far, or some of the weaker signals will not be
heard. The revolutionary SoundTracker system allows you to reduce
unwanted background noise (static) and increase the signal for better
reception.
Operating Procedure to Transmit
1. Select the desired channel.
2. The receiver and transmitter are controlled by the press-to-talk switch on
the microphone. Press the switch and the transmitter is activated; release
switch to receive. When transmitting (on a clear channel), hold the microphone two inches from the mouth and speak clearly in a normal voice.
Be sure the antenna is properly connected to the radio before transmitting. Prolonged transmitting without an antenna, or a poorly matched
antenna, could cause damage to the transmitter.

Maintenance
Maintenance and Adjustment
Your 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.
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 fuses in the DC power cord. The
main power lead (red & orange 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. Make certain the microphone is properly
plugged in.
4. Make certain the antenna is properly assembled and connected.
If you are unable to correct the problem, refer to
the SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS at the end of this
manual for the correct procedure for warranty
and post-warranty service from COBRA.

Acceptance requirements of Part 2 of said rules.
When making 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.
A Few Rules That Should Be Obeyed

The Citizens Band Story
OFF
1
2
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
FCC regulations permit only "transmissions" (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 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.

Our Thanks to You
Thank you for purchasing the Cobra 18 WX ST II
CB Radio Transceiver. Properly used, this Cobra
product will give you many years of reliable service.
“Cuts Static coming in, adds Punch going out!”
Technology that dramatically improves the
transmission and reception of CB radio signals.
The revolutionary SoundTrackerTM System reconfigures the transmission signal which allows it to
be transferred more effectively through cluttered
airwaves.
At the same time, it significantly reduces the
amount of static on all incoming CB signals.
The end result is a clearer, cleaner sounding
reception of signals and a more powerful
transmission which dramatically improve
CB communications.
