Installation
Location
Location
Plan location of transceiver and microphone bracket before starting the installation. Select a location that is convenient for operation, yet does not interfere with the driver or passenger. The transceiver is usually mounted to the underside of the dash with the microphone bracket beside it.

Installation

Mounting and Connection
Note The transceiver is held in the universal mounting bracket by two thumbscrews which allow for adjustment at a convenient angle. The bracket includes two selftapping screws and star washers. The mounting must be mechanically strong, conveniently located.

Mounting and Connection
1

Hold the radio with the mounting bracket in the exact desired location. If there is no interference, remove the bracket and use it as a template to mark the location for the mounting screws.
3

Connect the antenna cable plug to the receptacle marked “ANT” on the back of the unit.

2

Drill the holes and secure the bracket. continued

For models with Weather Feature (WX). the outside mirror must be grounded to the chassis via a ground strap. Even though the Cobra 25 WX NW ST has an automatic noise limiter. or call 773. The unit requires very little current and therefore will not significantly discharge the vehicle’s battery. the antenna is critical in affecting transmission distance. Cobra loaded type antenna For optimum performance in models are highly recommended for most instalpassenger cars the ideal anten. a na location is on the center of Dual Band (Center Load/Base Load) antenna is the roof.

Note Because many newer trucks feature fiberglass door skins. The primary source of noise in automobiles is from the alternator and ignition system. when signal level is adequate. Many possibilities exist and variations between vehicles require different solutions. the background noise does not present a serious problem.25 WX NW ST Manual 3. Consult your COBRA dealer or a 2-way radio technician for help in locating the source of a severe noise.using a single antenna. (unless it has a steel hull). Also. Marine Installation The transceiver will not operate at maximum efficiency in a boat without a ground plate. Note 3-way Combination Antennas are also available which allow operation of all three bands (AM-FM & CB). in some installations ignition interference may be high enough to make good communications impossible. Before attempting installation . 1 A standard antenna connector is provided on the transceiver for easy connection.3 6/15/99 1:10 PM Page 6 Antennas CB Antenna CB Antenna Ignition Noise Interference Use of a mobile receiver at low signal levels is normally limited by the presence of electrical noise. Only a properly matched antenna system will allow maxiNote mum power output. Typically. this type of antenna usually results in less than normal transmit and receive range when compared to a standard-type “Single Band” CB antenna.

In the transmission mode.which increases the signal-to-noise ratio and dramatically improves signal clarity.“Cuts noise coming in” With a normal CB. the better the sound. On Transmission . it actually strengthens the signal.“Strengthens signals going out” A SoundTrackerTM CB strengthens the transmit signal by more effectively using the available RF power output of the CB. The higher the signal-to-noise ratio. cleaner reception to improve CB communications while on the air. How SoundTracker TM Works On Reception . the revolutionary new SoundTrackerTM System actually reduces noise while leaving the signal intact in the reception mode.3 6/15/99 1:10 PM Page 12 Operation The SoundTracker TM System While previous systems only “blanket out” or limit noise in higher sound frequencies. 12 13 .This also allows you to significantly reduce the squelch level.which greatly expands your listening range. The result is improved transmission signal clarity and an expanded transmission range. distant signals fall below the squelch level and are unintelligible.
