Hey guys i got a cobra 29 classic pushing a grey 150 bi linear the radio has been tuned and peaked and was told it was set to push amp fine however when i key up i get a humming noise what needs adjusting...


I suspect it is a ground issue it is hard to say. But I have lots of question. Is gauge wire large enough? Power source? Wires and coax laying across or parallel? If it has been peeked turn mic gain down and see if it helps. If you are using it with a external speak, key it away from speaker. Good luck give your radio man as much info as possible a good one will not want discouraged customer.

How do i know if my palomar 250 is a high drive or low drive amp


If it is made by Palomar and it is a small amplifier, you can bet it is a low drive. Check those transistors. It could have the new Mosfet 655's in which case definitely low drive 3-6 watts input max.

Cobra 29 nhst d8 blown


Check with a ohm meter for a short to ground on that diode.

If it is the protect diode at the power plug the unit likely got hooked up backwards to power.

A dead short there with the diode removed indicates a short---start disconnection of parts before and after the power switch to locate it.

I NEED TO WHERE TO TURN UP THE RECEIVE IN MY 89XRL COBRA BASE STATION.


Hi Ralph, what do you mean "turn up the receive" ? You can not increase the wattage output without changing internal components. To increase RF gain and max performance you can upgrade your antenna and tune the SWR to 1:1 to 1. Other than that, a power microphone & bi-linear amplifier are the only ways to make it more powerful.
