LOCATION

Mount your Cobra 75WXST Connector Box in a 

convenient location, away from moisture and direct 

sunlight, in a location that will not interfere with driving. 

Cobra suggests mounting it either under the front seat or 

on the fire wall.

SPEAKERS/NOISE INTERFERENCE

INSTALLATION

CB ANTENNA

1. Mount external speaker in desired location as shown

2. Plug into the back of the Connector Box

*The external speaker should have 4-8 ohms impedance and be able to 

handle at least 4 watts. 

IGNITION NOISE INTERFERENCE

The alternator and ignition system in your vehicle may limit your ability 

to receive low signal levels. 

Other noise interference can be the result of several different installation 

variables. Consult your Cobra dealer or a 2-way radio technician to help 

locate and correct the source of severe noise interference.

SOUNDTRACKER

®

 SYSTEM

While previous systems only “blanked out” or limited noise in higher 

sound frequencies, the revolutionary new SoundTracker

®

 System actually 

reduces noise while leaving the signal intact in the reception mode. In the 

transmission mode, it actually strengthens the signal, providing you with a 

significant reduction in noise.

For the most reliable operation and 

maximum range, Cobra recommends using 

a vertically polarized, quarter–length whip 

antenna (illustration 1). 

Shorter, loaded-type whips are adequate 

when maximum range is not required 

(illustration 2).

NOTE: Mobile installations (cars, trucks, 

boats, etc) should be made only with a 

non-directional antenna system. 

• A standard antenna connector (Type 

SO-239) is provided on the Connector Box 

for easy connection to a standard PL-259 

cable termination. 

• Cobra antenna models are 

recommended; see your local CB dealer or 

order directly from Cobra. See order form 

on page ??.

• For maximum efficiency in boat 

installations, a ground plate is required, 

unless the vessel has a steel hull. Consult 

your CB dealer for information regarding 

an adequate grounding system.

SETTING THE SQUELCH

To achieve the Desired Squelch 

Setting (DSS): 

1. Turn SoundTracker on

2. Turn the Squelch Control 

(SQL) counterclockwise until 

you hear nothing but static.

3. Slowly turn the Squelch 

Control back clockwise, just 

until the static stops. This is the 

optimum receiving level, (DSS) 

allowing only strong signals to 

come through.

SETTING THE SQUELCH

Think of your Squelch Control as a gate for incoming signals. If you turn 

the Squelch Control fully clockwise, you effectively close the “gate” 

and no signals will pass through. If you turn the Squelch control fully 

counterclockwise, you open the gate and all signals come through. 

SELECTING A CHANNEL

1. Change channels by pressing either the 

channel 

up or channel 

down key .

2.  To quick-advance channels, press and 

hold either key.

WEATHER CHANNEL MESSAGES

You can receive up to the minute local area weather reports provided by 

NOAA (National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration) 24 hours a day, 

7 days a week. An agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, NOAA 

warns of dangerous weather, charts our seas and skies, guides our use 

and protection of ocean and coastal resources and conducts research to 

improve our understanding and stewardship of the environment.
The National Weather Service operates about 380 stations. Approximately 

90 percent of the Nation’s population is within listening range of a NOAA 

Weather Radio broadcast.
A similar network of about 15 stations using the same frequencies 

broadcast continuous weather information across much of southern 

Canada.
If you have a question concerning NOAA Weather Radio or wish to 

receive a listing of NOAA Weather Radio receiver locations, please 

contact your nearest National Weather Service Office, or write to 

National Weather Service (Attn: W/OM11), National Oceanic and 

Atmospheric Administration, Silver Spring, MD. 20910.

Note:  Some areas may not have a broadcast tower  

within the transmission range of your 75WX.

A FEW RULES YOU SHOULD KNOW 

1.  You are not allowed to carry on a conversation with another station for 

more than five minutes at a time without taking a one-minute break to 

give others a chance to use the channel.

2.  You are not allowed to blast others off the air by overpowering them 

with illegally amplified transmitter power or illegally high an ten nas.

3. You can’t use the CB to promote illegal activities.

4. You are not allowed to use profanity.

5. You may not play music in your CB.

6. You may not use your CB to sell merchandise or professional service.

Operating Procedure for Emergency Communications
1.  
For  EMER GEN CY com mu ni ca tions,  set radio to Ch. 9. For non-

emergency com mu ni ca tions, select desired Channel by rotating the 

CHAN NEL UP/DOWN tuning knob until reach ing the desired Chan nel.
Be sure the antenna is properly connected to the radio before trans-

mit ting. Prolonged transmitting without an antenna, or use of a poorly 

matched an ten na, could cause damage to the transmitter.

2.  When asking for aid on Channel 9 it is suggested that you request a 

REACT base to respond by saying “Break Channel 9 for a REACT base” 

and provide the CB DISTRESS DATA (called “CLIP):
C
ALL SIGN-Identify yourself and vehicle.
LOCATION-Be exact.
INJURIES-Number. Type. Trapped?
PROBLEM- Give details and help required. Air CLIP repeatedly so any 

monitor can aid you.

If you don’t receive a response on Ch. 9; try Ch.14 or 19.

USE CHANNEL 9 FOR EMERGENCY ONLY

FCC gives the following examples of permitted and prohibited types of 

com mu ni ca tions for use on Channel 9. These are guidelines and are not 

intended to be all-inclusive.

Yes

“There is a four-car collision at Exit 10 on the Beltway,
