Superstar 360 /Cobra 148 mk2 rf gain/power control

Post by cqradio » Thursday 14th Mar 2013, 8:38

Radio Make and Model: Superstar 360 mk2
PCB Number:
PLL Number:
Test gear available: lcd multimeter - freq counter - hammer!
Symptoms: Hi radio type folks!

I have acquired a Superstar 360 (mk2) and at some time the RF gain control has been converted into a variable "Power" control for some reason. The previous owner said he bought it like this and tried to reverse it but couldn't. I want to restore this radio to its former glory but could do with some pointers? Is this a known mod etc?

Many thanks mates!

What is working: RF gain is on full all the time!

What has been tried:

Did it suddenly happen ?:
Anything else that may be of help?:

This should help you out with the wires and switches.
