Comments: It's a base model cheap cobra cb. It's very small so I mounted it to the drivers side dashboard. With a good antenna you'll get perfect reception. It fits well in the Cherokee.

Pros: 70's era CB Base station I found at my great-grandpa's house, extremely long range and great look.
Cons: it is a GIGANTIC brick on top of my dashboard lol, but it still looks cool.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a 70's era CB Radio Base station I found at my great grandpa's house. It has a plug to hook up via 12V DC, but I'm cheap and i just put an adapter on my cigarette lighter to use the regular AC cord. It has amazing range, but I would figure its partly because i have a Wilson magnetic whip on top of my car, it was about $50 and i would highly recommend it. CB's are fun and useful on the freeway and if you have buddies. My friend has a Midland CB on his F-150 with the same antenna, we can literally hear each other almost 4 miles away.

Pros: The Cobra "29 LX LE 50th Anniversary CB Radio" is a one of a kind limited edition radio.
Cons: It does not have the night watch switches.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I really like this radio for two reasons. First, Cobra finally brought their products to the 21st century with an updated design and new features. Secondly, Cobra didn't mess with a good thing when it came to making changes to the transmit and receive portions of the radio. Some people might complain that Cobra didn't make the Cobra 29 any better, they just added some bling to the radio and they might be right except for the fact that the new interface and features do improve the users experience with the radio. It's easier to see the channel display, you can adjust the color, you can scan the channels, and you can store and scan memory channels.

Now even though I found myself drawn to the new display I'd be failing my readers if I didn't point out a couple of things that drive me nuts with this radio.

The dual control knobs on this radio are awful. The volume knob is difficult to grab with your fingers and once you have a hold of it the knob is hard to turn. Same thing with the talkback knob. Now there are only two dual controls on this radio so it's not the end of the world, but the volume on/off knob was the one that really annoyed me. Maybe I just have big hands but I found it difficult to turn the radio on and off compared to previous models.

My only other real complaint is probably the bigger issue. Lack of NightWatch lighting on the control knobs make this radio hard to use in a vehicle in the dark.

The knobs are black and have no reflectivity making them hard to locate in night conditions. On older Cobra's without NightWatch because the knobs were chromed they at least would reflect some light inside the vehicle so you could make a guess at which one to turn. If they had been able to do backlit knobs of some sort on this model or added the Nightwatch type feature it would have really made the radio a slam dunk.

Overall I'm impressed and the new radio definitely has it's selling points. The more modern styling is much more suited to the newer vehicles of today and the display and features will garner more attention from those operators who like to tinker with their options. No need to add blue LED's to your Cobra 29 anymore to make it look cool, you can change colors with the touch of a button.

I'm not sure how well the menu knob will hold up over time and I'm pretty sure the display will be the first thing to go wrong if the radio is going to develop problems but only time will tell on the quality.

Big props to Cobra for taking the risk on the new technology, now if they can just make a SSB version I think they might be on to something.

Pros: 10 and 11 meter operation, ssb am and fm, plus cleaning filters and noise cancellation. Six presets
Cons: price, size
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have the Magnum 257 ham radio, running on 11-meter CB AM. This radio has done an outstanding job getting TX out and picking up rogue or unclean signals. It sounds clear, loud, and precise. The controls and interface are awesome, and it's very user friendly. The only issue is the huge heatsink on the back makes it a bit larger than most expect, so plan a good mounting spot before clicking check out.
