Rf out ok no modulation but mike ok


Hook up a speaker to the PA jack on the back of the radio. Put the CB into PA mode and see if any audio is coming out of PA jack. This will tell you if the AUDIO AMP IC TA7222 is good.

The problem is in the audio output chip usually bolted to the inner chassis. Sometimes the chip developes a hairline crack, replacement recommended.

No modulation in AAM only mode. Needing a schematic.


if the transmitter produces power output with modulation on SSB but NOT ON AM then the AM Pass Regulator is defective, more times than not.

Cobra 148fgtl low power on am/ssb no swing all finals ok


try adjusting the L36,L38 to the highest reading on the external meter and then adjust VR10 TO 4 watts. If this doesn't cure the problem, you have a weak final transistor. Good Luck

142 GTL Good AM Carrier Weak Modulation????


you may have to scope the finals circuit on the modulation to see if all the "inline" caps are installed correctly... be sure your pc board is grounded in all areas as required by specs in your manual. Make sure there is no bleedover and you are sheilding your crystals from the modulation platform. al
