And that this will be a First and final warning. And if further outbreaks/rudness or attitude happen you will be banned. Well thats what I w...

Rick already said to use pin 1 instead of pin 3. Pin 1 runs a constant 8volts, so the answer to your question is YES. Use pin 1.

Rick, are you able to redraw full radio schmatics??? If yes, I`d love for you to do some for me. Your redraws comes up so nice and clear and easy to read. I was just asking cos I have seen a few 148`s come through with them wired to pin 3 and a lot of them to pin 1. Just wasn`t sure what the differe...

Thanks for that guys, I was looking at the DX99V. Will look into it a little more. I was thinking of the 959 just cos its on the cheap side and the fact that it would look nice with all blue or green leds.

I would have to say "on, off, on"
switch up 10kc up
center off (normal freq)
switch down 10kc down.

but wait for a few replies as I could be wrong as I have not done 1 of these yet. But it sounds pretty right to me.

I have seen this else where before. I wouldn`t recomend them to anyone, but I will end up getting one for myself to have a fiddle with. Maybe we could make some improvements to the unit and make them worth having.

Well with the newer ones I know that the mod board I`d like to put in it wont work as it is the rci and not MB8719. Even if I wher...

they give about 5 watts extra...if you shine them, you get 6 watts zodiac.
From what I hear, if you mount the top cover upside down you`ll gain approx 12watts :D

just my opinion, your better off and waiting till you can find a good older style Cobra 148GTL. From what I hear the newer ones aren`t all that good.

But like I said, thats what I hear and also just my opinion.
