Hey, Citizen's Band radio didn't die just because everyone has a cell phone now. It's still the affordable technology of choice for truck drivers, campers, and anyone else who needs two-way broadcast capabilities.

Cobra has been making CBs for ages, so they know what you need in a unit, and they know how to do it right. With the full legal four watts of power, SWR calibration lets you more closely match your antenna. It has public address capabilities, variable brightness backlit displays, a nine foot microphone cord, and tactile controls you can FEEL so you don't need to take your eyes off the road.

But that's not all: you also get to receive seven NOAA weather channels, AND there's an emergency alert for bad weather that sounds even when the unit is turned off. This could very well be your next CB. Check it out and decide!

2 out of 5 eggsCobra 29-WX NW ST Classic

Pros: Dimmable Back Light
Mic output control
Weather channels
SWR/Cal features

Cons: Weather alert
Squelch operation
You can't keep the weather control on a weather station if the unit power goes off when the vehicle is turned off. When it comes on, it uses the loudest volume setting, no matter where it is set, for checking the weather alert system. REALLY ANNOYING. You have to turn it to 0 channel to stop the noise.
Reception -I can't get the squelch to operate correctly, or the way I expect it to work. It will cut off background noise and then half of what somebody is transmitting. To hear the whole transmission, the squelch needs to be turned down and then you get the background noise. I haven't found a happy medium. Set in between, the background noise fades in and out all the time. VERY ANNOTING. My old unit would be silent until somebody transmitted.
The Sound Tracker doesn't seem to do anything. It does quiet it down if you don't use noise limiter, but no more than the noise limiter does. It seems to be ineffective otherwise.

Other Thoughts: I bought this thinking it would be a lot better than my Radio Shack Realistic TRC 428 that I bought in 1982. They are almost identical I figured there would have been a vast improvement in the 30years since then, but I was mistaken. I am using a magnetic mount Weather capable antenna on my van that is supposed to be for this unit.
All in all, I am not pleased with my purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsThinking about buying as exact replacement

Pros: * Owned for several years - since 1999
* Tried and true performance in my small car
* Attached to a Wilson 'Lil Wil' antenna on my car with 4 foot antenna
* Noise blocker works real good
* Does not reset the channel when powered off, not like some cheaper models

Cons: * Size, but that is easily remedied in cars
* After about five years the "Night Watch" Illumination quit
* The meter light seems to be getting darker in time

Other Thoughts: Thinking about getting a new one and while the one I got, I will give to my dad for his truck.

5 out of 5 eggsCobra29-WXNWST

Pros: GREAT SOUND, EASY TO INSTALL AND USE, MANY FEATURES. THE WEATHER RADIO WITH THE BUILT IN S.A.M.E. HAS SAVED ME FROM GETTING WET MANY TIMES.

Cons: LITTLE BIG FOR MOST CAR INSTALLATIONS, BUT EASY TO FIGURE OUT WITH A LITTLE IMMAGINATION.

5 out of 5 eggsRecomended to everyone

Pros: Easy to use, very good visibility at night, excellent sound quality. Manufacturer's description of the product could not be more accurate.

Cons: don't forget about a high quality antenna, without it this unit is useless. Unit does not have a PFC filter installed so you might get some noise if your power source has a transformer somewhere in the power chain. but that can be easily fixed with a small upgrade.
