29 LX is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a "work" radio. I purchased this radio and installed in my work truck. I sent it back for warranty repair once already and now am having the same problem (display won't show any characters, only backlight). I have talked to a CB radio shop and they said too much vibration is likely the cause. When I sent it back the 1st time I bought a 29 classic as a temporary replacement and it has worked fine in the truck. It costs $30.00 to ship back to the factory so this is going to cost me $60.00 to repair a $99.00 ($129.00 with $30.00 rebate) radio. Not happy with this at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great radio I just had my cobra 29 lx lcd professionally installed on my FORD CROWN VICTORIA POLICE INTERCEPTOR on my glove box on the outside. The radio is too big to be installed under my dash,unless of course, tearing away my vital electronics on my panther. You have to understand when a police interceptor is retired from the fleet, all electronics are removed,IE, lightbar, radio and siren but the wiring is still alive and tempering with the live wiring might cause serious damage to the electrical system. The radio is reachable and I am able to

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sorry guys Sorry guys just got cobra 29 LX I have two problems with it. First the mic I push button in and most of the time it keeps receiving at less then full power.

I just installed a Cobra 20 LX and I have a few questions. Does the radio read swr when in s/rx mode or do I have to be on swr to read the swr? If it doesn't, what do the upper and lower bars read when in s/rx mode? 

Asked by: Dk201503
For detailed instructions on how to check the SWR, please refer to the Installation section at the following link: https://www.cobra.com/support/faqs/cb-radio-faqs Should you have additional questions, please contact our Customer Care Group at 773 889 3087. Thank you for choosing Cobra!

I bought a 29LX a couple of years ago and last year it started to give the antenna warning. I have checked the SWR and it is 2.1 on channels 1 and 40. When I do the RF power output test it fails, yet I can transmit and receive. What could be wrong?

Asked by: Rick64
Typically when the RF output fails, it means the transmitter in the radio is bad. However, since your radio is transmitting, most likely it just needs an internal (tuning) alignment. There is also an easy-to-follow antenna warning (internal adjustment) procedure we can send you by mail or email, please contact us at the number below and provide an e/mail address. You may also contact one of our International Dealers at the link below or send it to Cobra's Chicago address on the box for service.https://www.cobra.com/about-us/international-distributors Cobra Technical Documents: http://downloads.cobra.com/ To see other frequently asked questions click here; https://www.cobra.com/support/faqs Should you have additional questions, please contact our Customer Care Group at 773 889 3087.

I just bought the Cobra 29 LX.  Have antenna tuned with SWR at .5 on 1, 20, and 40.  When I do the radio check mode it say RF Power Output Fail.  What is the problem and what do I need to do? 

Asked by: Rough Rider
Sounds like an internal problem with that radio. You may exchange it at the place of purchase, send it to a Cobra Warranty center, or send it to Cobra directly for warranty service to the Chicago address on the box. Cobra Electronics Corp.

Could I use a cb with an auxiliary cable and plug in the other end to the aux input of a car radio and be able to hear it with the car speakers?

Asked by: brantastic
Please note, Cobra CB radios have a 1/8" (mono) audio jack on the back where you may plug in external speaker(s). If your car stereo supports the feature you described, I don't see a problem with it. Otherwise, you may have to plug the car speakers directly into the back of CB.

Are cb's in general able to be mounted on motorcycles and use it with a headset

Asked by: brantastic
Yes. All standard Cobra CB's have an 1/8" (mono) audio jack to connect an external speaker or headset, however, in order to transmit out the user must talk into the standard CB microphone included with the radio. An alternate option with similar power output is the Cobra Handheld model HH 38WXST available here: https://www.cobra.com/products/portable/hh-38-wx-st It allows both receive and transmit using this headset: https://www.cobra.com/products/cb-radio/pmr-ebm Some users incorporate it into the existing "Autocom" system on the motorcycle.

What is the range of the cobra 29 lx with a good antenna?

Asked by: Tommyboy
Thank you for your interest in our products, we appreciate it. Please note, the range of a CB depends on the length and tuning of the antenna connected to it, the longer the better. All Cobra CB radios have the maximum legal (4W) power output. With a properly tuned 4 foot antenna, you should get a range of approximately 3 to 7 miles depending on the amount of physical obstructions and terrain around you.
