You dont list the model but generally speaking no. The circuit is PLL and is difficult to change

In most cases just turning up VR4 is more then enough. Replacing the final, tr14 with another transistor requires changing many more parts to get it to work.

With a new 29, there is no need to change the final. Just turn vr4 all the way up and you will see around 20 - 25 watts. L13 won't gain you a single watt. L12 will raise the dead key, and usually you want a lower dead key for good swing. L14 will gain you a few watts, but don't adjust this unless you have a watt meter. You turn it out to increase wattage, but too much will over bias the final and shorten its life.

You hook it to a watt meter with a dummy load. Then say a steady AHHHH into the mic while keyed. Turn the slug out until the needle stops going up, then back it down to where it stopped.

The easy thing to do, and you will be pleased is just to turn VR4 up. Now, Up is counter clockwise. Its a variable resistor, so the less resistance, the more modulation. So you want to turn the VR down.

that will be more then enough.

I'm looking at a price range somewhere in the area of 40 - 120 $$ to buy them new. If YOU can fix them without getting a tech involved then go for it but you will need a frequency counter that covers the range and they don't give them away cheap and the repair cost wouldn't be cheap either. I would buy another pair.

In Thailand Cb radio users must use freq range 245.000 - 249.999 freqs. Do usa Cb's use this freq?


Thailand actually has three "CB" bands, the first is the same as the U.S. / CEPT (EU "European Community) band 26.965 - 27.405 MHz, the second is a 78MHz VHF mid CB band (I think its either 40 or 80 channels with FM mode) and then the 245.0000 - 245.9875 MHz VHF 80 channel band - apparently the law also stipulates that the 78MHz CBs must be yellow colored and the 245MHz CBs must be red colored.

But yeah, 245MHz Thailand VHF CBs are very illegal in the United States.

Just want to know where to set all the bottoms on this Galaxy DX44 V to be ableto talk to people on channel 19


With out a frequency counter to tell you what freq you are transmitting on there is another way.

Turn to channel 19. mess with the switches untill you hear truckers on the highway. then you have got it.

Otherwise pick up a frequency counter on ebay.

Cobra 19 DX IV CB Radio Gets no signal at all


my only idea is the frequency that Canadians transmit/recieve on is different than us down south (in the USA). I know Europe and the UK use a different frequency range so my guess is that Canada uses a different radio frequency range than the U.S. making you unable to communicate with fellow radio users. You may be able to search the frequency range for Canada vs. the U.S. and see if there's a difference. Hope this helps...and again, it's just a thought.
