    How many watts can this thing really put out and how do you increase them? I was told that the new version i had was the same wattage across upper and lower side band and also am bands. What i was looking for when I bought it was the largest wattage unit on the market for a single box. Am a company driver and my company does not allow external additional amps or linears? Was there a better choice? Just does not get out like i expected. Swrs are fine and i know there are modulation modifications possible but am not a radio tech and quite frankly and a little hesitant to take it anywhere anymore after all of the money i have spent on it with very little gains in performance. Any ideas, thoughts

Well I'm sorry to say with todays new trucks, I found in a Volvo660 only 20 maybe 30mi with 100w. No metal on trucks any more. I drove a 1982 359 pete for my first truck 100w. I could talk to anybody i could hear. went from that truck to an 89 fld120 lost radio performance. then to the 660 which seem def. I could hear people but it was hard to be heard. even with an amp.

How can you tune and peak a Maxon MCB-10


I wouldn't advise it because if you do increase the power output then the finals will blow out. It is not heat sinked for any more power then it puts out now

How to convert a galaxy dx98vhp


if you modify a export radio YOU MAY NOT TRANSMIT on it. It is ok to listen. just remove the board or 8volts to the final rf transistors to keep it legal. then just change the pll logic to open to the other bands.

I also have another cobra 29 ltd classic and it works fine but i cant talk or hear what other factory cb's can hear, it is supposed to be tuned and peaked and i have a wilson 2,000 antenna, and i cant talk...


nearly all problems are caused by poorly tuned or untuned antennas. a good antenna system with a cheap stock radio will out perform a great tuned radio with a bad antenna system any day of the week. if you dont believe me, check the firestik antenna website's tech notes. or wilson's tech notes.
