Question about Cobra 150 GTL DX Base CB Radio
I,ve had this 150 in the shop for this problam each time they say its working fine .
put it in the truck run down the road and it breaks up when i talk
the mike is new
the antenna system is new also swrs are below 1.5
radio ground is hooked to the cab
power is straight off the battery
Normally when the power drops the driver transistor needs to be heated with the proper soldering iron (poor soldering at the factory). The 150 also needs a factory mod (a 1 microfared 50 v cap installed) which prevents the receive from getting into the transmit causing flutter. Don't take your unit into a CB shop unless they are highly qualified. Best to return to the warranty station (no charge except for one way shipping). No other problems that we are aware of. Great value for the buck.

I had the same problem when I had the radio set down to 2 watts. When I turned it up to 5 watts on low the problem went away never to return.

Sounds like the finals are tore up, maybe 1 of the dual finals is working and the high power side is out. You said it puts out just 2 watts and that is what it would put out on low side. Do you especially break-up after it warms up a little. If it works better cold and when it warms up then your finals might be shot.
