Uniden 980ssb

I bought a non working Uniden 980ssb radio and I think the reverse polarity diode is blown because it blows the fuse every time it is powered up. Probably a long shot and no schematic is available for these that I know of. Thanks....

Re: cobra 146 GTL mod ?

All I know is I put a galaxy a kit in a 146 that I had. It yielded 40 low channels and 40 upper channels. The instructions came with it and was fairly simple.. I did not try ssb, but on the am side worked perfectly..

Re: cobra 146 GTL mod ?

If you can find one, a galaxy A kit will work in them. Also a expo 100 "N" kit will work in it. But the problem is finding them.

Fluttering w/squelch Cobra 29 ltd 2007 year

I have a fairly new Cobra 29ltd chrome. When you turn up the squelch just enough for the noise to go away there is a fluttering sound in the receive. You can turn it on up more and it goes away, but a weaker signal will get cut out. I have had other newer 29's that did this as well. :?

Palomar lizard 250hd

I have a palomar lizard 250hd with the automatic sideband. On am when in use and you unkey there is maybe a 1 second delay before the receive comes back. Is there any one that may know a way to disable this function?

Cobra 138xlr squelch

I recently acquired a Cobra 138xlr and for whatever reason someone removed all the wires from the squelch control. Just wanting to know if anyone knows the precise location to re-solder 3 wires back to the pcb so I can have the squelch function back intact. I have saw the schematic, but I am not an ...

Sorry I meant to say L37, not L8. Anyway it wasn't that either because went out again and I pushed gently on the pc board and it is what I am fairly sure is a cold solder joint. So without knowing which joint it actually was I started reheating. Slow process but so far it is still working. I guess t...

I just messed with it again I started touching components with a small plastic tip tuning stick. I touched L8 and moved it a bit and it started working. Does this sound crazy? I don't know?

Pin 8 of IC4 shows 8.36 volts in TX mode. Driver voltage on collector in TX mode on am is 3.83 volts and on LSB is 13.2 volts. Final voltage on collector in TX mode is 3.93 volts on am and 13.32 on LSB. Radio was keyed maybe 5 seconds when I noticed my error.

Base of driver is 1.22v, base of final is .79v. I am not positive which is IC4, but with component side up with front of radio facing me there are 2 ic's on the right which maybe one of these is ic4. Cannot find a marking. Assuming pin 1 is toward the front of the radio pin 8 of the one toward the b...
