Before I even ran all the power wires for the radio. Before I ran all the power and ground wires for the radio, I had a CB shop peak and tune the radio. After it was all said and done, the radio dead keyed right under 6 watts of power and peaked right under 30 watts. From what I've read this seems to be the average for a basic peak and tune. I got the SWR nice and low 1.1-1.2 across all channels.
So how does it perform? It performs amazing I think. So far everyone has told me how loud and clear it sounds to them. I usually talk on Ch 19 but as you know, Ch19 seems to be really dead these days where hours would go by without hearing a word. Tonight, While I was fueling up my truck, I talked with a guy who was a local and told me that him and a lot of other locals guys talk on Ch 28 and ch36 every night. He came in loud and clear and said that I was also coming in loud as if I was just a few miles away from him and asked me my location. When I gave it to him he couldnt believe I was able to hit him back so clearly because we were about about 20 miles apart (straight shot, not driving distance) I ended up talking with him and a few other guys who were all in the 15-20 mile range all running home base stations with towers and big power and they all complemented how well I sounded. I don't know much about CB's but I'm told that the Antenna is a big part of the performance you get. Either way, I'm very happy with this radio. At some point I'll likely add a linear amp to it but for now it works great and talks far.
I do have one complaint wit the radio. Every time I set the clock and turn it on to show up, the next time I turn the truck back on after it's been turned off, the clock go away and resets its self. It's as if it isn't saving it in the memory. I remembers what my last channel I was on and every other feature that I've custom set...Everythin BUT the clock. It's not a huge deal to me since I have a clock about 1 foot above the radio anyway but just thought it was worth noting.
Decades ago, Cobra gained a solid reputation because their circuit boards were made & supplied by Uniden. This is no longer the case. This particular model is a copy of the classic Cobra 29 model BUT with inferior components and what appears to be zero quality control!
After hearing what it sounded like I decided to do some further testing. The results were astonishing! Transmission on AM sounded like sideband but still off frequency. Not only is it off frequency, it is out of band! What typical 27 MHz should be is over 30 MHz! Furthermore as modulation increases so does the "off frequency" condition.
Regardless of who is at fault, it is the operator's responsibility to be in compliance with the law regarding transmissions. This unit is illegal to transmit on! Even if you wanted to, the signal is so garbled that it is basically useless.
With the low quality and underrated components, even if it were within spec, it can't last very long. They have sacrificed quality and reputation to save a few pennies per unit! Do NOT but this radio!
Testing was performed with a Hewlett Packard spectrum analyzer / frequency counter and Bird SWR/Watt meter.
So far, I have a transmit swr of 1.5 on all channels 1-40 (I adjusted the swr with new antenna with a swr meter prior to this VR^ adjustment). I still need to verify range and clarity with another cb user. The VR6 function was performed after eliminating possible coax and antenna issues. Current set-up: 2000 Jeep Wrangler spare tire mount. Wilson 305-830 18' Belden Coax PL-259/FME and Firestik 4' Firestik II FS 5/8. The real test will be on the trail. Note: The Cobra 29 series VR6 sensitivity may not have been correctly set at manufacturer AND it seems to move very easily which may contribute to sensitivity issues when getting knocked around on the road or trail thus the application of a small piece of tape on the VR6.
