Introduction

Mounting and Connections 

Select a location for the transceiver and microphone bracket that is con ve nient for 
operation. In automobiles, the transceiver is usually mounted to the underneath of the 
dash panel, with the microphone bracket beside it.

 A universal mounting bracket is supplied along with self tap-
ping screws and star washers. The transceiver is held in the 
universal mounting bracket by two thumb screws, permitting 
adjustment at the most con ve nient angle.

To mount and connect your transceiver:
1.

  Hold the radio with mounting bracket in the exact 

location desired. Remove the mounting bracket  
and use it as a template to mark the location for  
the mounting screws.

2.

  Drill necessary holes and secure mounting  

bracket in lo ca tion. 

3.

  Connect the antenna cable plug to the re cep ta cle 

marked “ANT” on the back of the unit.

4.

  Connect to power system in vehicle. 

5.

  Mount the microphone bracket on right side  

of the transceiver or near it using two screws supplied. 
When mount ing in an automobile,  
place the bracket under the dash so the  
microphone is readily accessible.

6.

  Attach the four pin microphone cable to receptacle  

on front of unit and install unit in bracket securely.

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.

Operation 

Squelch

This control is used to cut 

off

 or elim i nate 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.

Squelch

 is the “control gate” for incoming signals.

To squelch your radio:
1.

  Full clockwise rotation closes the gate,  

allowing only very strong signals to enter.

2.

  Full counterclockwise rotation opens  

the “gate,” allowing all signals in.

3.

  To achieve the Desired Squelch Setting (DSS),  

turn the 

Squelch

 control counterclockwise until  

you hear noise. Now turn the control clockwise  
just until the noise stops. This is the DSS setting.

RF Gain

This control is used to adjust receiver sensitivity. Maximum sensitivity allows  
weak signals to be received. However, very strong signals (such as from a nearby 
transmitter) can cause distortion at that setting. Adjust until the distortion disappears.
Reducing the receiver’s 

RF Gain

 eliminates distortion from very strong incoming signals.

To set RF Gain:
1. 

 Full counterclockwise rotation minimizes  
gain for maximum distortion control.

2.

  To achieve the desired level of distortion control, turn 

the 

RF Gain

 knob counterclockwise until  

the distortion is eliminated.

3.

  After moving away from the strong signal,  

turn the 

RF Gain

 knob fully clockwise to  

receive all possible signals.

Operation 

Operating Procedure to Receive

Be sure that power cord, antenna and microphone  
are connected to the proper connectors before proceeding 
further. Program the radio to the frequency band allowed in 
the country in which the radio is to  
be used.

To receive:
1.

  Turn the radio 

on

 by rotating the  

On-Off/Volume 

knob clockwise.

  

2.

  Rotate the 

Squelch/RF Gain

 knob  

counterclockwise until incoming  
signal is heard.

  

3.

  Select the desired channel.

  

4.

  Set the 

On-Off/Volume

 knob and the  

Squelch/RF Gain

 knob to a comfortable  

listening level.

Operating Procedure to Transmit

 Be sure the antenna is properly connected to the radio before transmitting. Prolonged 
transmitting without an antenna, or with a poorly matched  
antenna, could cause damage to the transmitter.

  

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.

Operation 

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 authorized Cobra dealer or a two-way radio technician  
for help in locating and correcting the source of severe noise.

Maintenance/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 13.2 VDC required  
to operate your radio.

2.

  Check the fuses in the DC power cord.  

The main power lead (red) has a two amp  
2AG 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 product service on page A1 for  
the correct procedure for warranty and post-warranty service from Cobra.
