Rather than use a small linier you decided to break your radio instead . It still sounds like a cold solder point to me .

I believe that your installation is faulty. Check for any shorts, solder bridges, and that instructions were followed correctly.

Will a mosfet 520 swing kit give me mor watage to my cobra 29 lx 29 lx

yes , but for the amount you get its hardly going to be worth it.this radio has all kinds of limiters in and it won't let you do one thing without doing this other thing first.A small 100 watt kicker will do a better job and nothing to do to the radio except turn the wattage down so its linier friendly.

I have a uniden grant and i have wired a galaxy power desk mic with rogger beep when ever i key it up it squeals was wondering is there a way to fix that

yeah your mic gain is way too high. You can either turn off talk back if you can, or turn the gain down. Depending on how loud the talk back is, your audio may suffer. If that is the case, you will not be able to run that mic. Get an RK-56 or a Skythumper mic. They are noise canceling. You will get no squeal with that mic, and it will sound awesome.

If you really want a roger beep, take it to a tech and them install one.
