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

My cb when I go to transmit says cb antenna issue and idk what to do

Asked by: Boydo13
It indicates your CB antenna needs to be calibrated. I would recommend checking the SWR of the antenna using the built in SWR meter on your radio. See instructions at the link below.

What is the maximum wattage which the 29 LX PA output jack can supply? Is it OK to wire a large speaker to it, which can draw more wattage than the 29 LX might be able to supply?  I would like to use the 29LX as a PA amplifier - max. size of speaker?

Asked by: trevycas
The PA output power of a CB radio is 4Watts. Please note, you may connect a larger(watts) speaker, however it will not make it louder because the radio output is 4W, regardless of the PA speaker capacity. Unless it is an amplified PA speaker, the higher wattage, the louder.

I have the Cobra HG A1500 and I can't get it under 3 swr what so ever. I have it on a Chevy extended cab 1500. I mic up and cannel 1 is 3.2 swr and 40 is just a hair under 3 swr is the whip to short? Antenna warning just will not go away.

Asked by: Midwestsnowplow
To check the SWR of your antenna, please make sure your vehicle is parked in an open area away from tall trees, buildings and power lines. If necessary, I would recommend moving the antenna as close to the center of the roof as possible. Try to make sure the coax cable is extended as much as possible. If you need to coil any part of it, try to keep the loops at least 12" wide or run the cable back and forth. The idea is to avoid coiling it in small loops. If you continue having trouble, you may cut off the bottom of the antenna whip, 1/4" at a time (once or twice), not more than three times, you should definitely see an improvement on the SWR.
