This info was sent to me by Jay:

Cobra HH45WX FM Mode!

I was playing around with my 45WX, and found that if you jump the two pads below the Extra Channel pads, the radio works in FM.
The cap has to be shorted to activate this.
There are two other sets of pads (all need to have the green protectant scraped off) that don't seem to do anything when jumped.
One note: You can have FM and extra channels enabled, but, you are limited to channels 1-80, and some channels are AM, most are FM, strange.
