Ringo AR10

Has any here ever built a AR10/11 from the ground up without the kit? I have a buddy with what would be an AR11 copy and figured it can't be all that difficult. As luck would have it I have the mast and most of the stuff aside from the gamma match bits from a recent score.Ever tried to pull an anten...

A few words on the K30 antenna system

In a word Junk. I bought this guy because it was a wham bam install and to say the least I was going to be as lazy as possible about it because I wanted to get on the air, not spend a whole day drilling holes and planning stuff. And it was CHEAP. I know of people who have had them work just fine. I ...

Don't even say drivers it has the 2SC2314 driver installed. And I have 2.7 at the gate. It jumps after key and modulation. Starts about 1. Thinking the 2030 mods is a huge pile.

Ok re checked SWR again = Replaced and re trimed the K30 whip. Now 1:1 on 19 and 1:2 on 1 and 40. Now it swings 5.5-6.5 max at any point. Staring to feel like the 2030 mod is a scam meant to suck this sucker in.

Anyone get one done for real on a newer chassis?

I do not believe the final in that radio will tolerate even CW at the duty cycle you will need.

Re: Cobra 29 LTD FM mods.

It is easy to add FM to most radios using a 455 KHz IF. You just need a 455 Mod-demod module which can be obtained from Spectrum Communications www.spectrumcomms.co.uk/cbkits.htm#FM455 If you have any trouble, obtaining one from Spectrum, let me know as I think I still have one in stock. Thanks for...

Cobra 29 LTD FM mods?? Stumper of the century?

1. Any ideas on how to get the radio into an FM mode that might be switchable? I know that you can pull the line from the mic and it goes somewhere around the crystal circuit to make it go FM.

2. Anyone know the secret of the PLL chip and the extra channels?
