To my knowledge on a Cobra 29 board, replacing TR14 (2SC2029) with a 2SC1969 is supposed to improve/increase the TX power output. Additionally however, L12, 13 & 14 must also be adjusted while the 29 is hooked up to a dummy load/watt meter. Should you wish to try for experimental purposes only:
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Depending on the type of power supply, radio frequency (RF) energy from the transmitter may be 'fooling" it into thinking that you're overloading it. Check to see if there's any discernible dimming of the meter lamp when this problem occurs, if so, the supply is the culprit.
Otherwise, its probable that the final amplifier transistors are overheating, either they are 'leaky' or not properly attached to the heat sink.

Just because the chip is warm doesn't mean it's bad, especially if it seems to work fine otherwise. Do however make sure that the device is properly heatsinked, and inspect the work done in the process of any modifications. If for some reason the device is self-oscillating it could do so at a frequency above hearing thereby going unnoticed. That will cause the device to overheat, and also make modulation weak and the RF to splatter out of band. You'll have lots of power on the RF wattmeter, but people can barely hear you if that's the case.
