SOURCE: Cobra 1000 GTL by Dynascan

This is a complicated modification. I have never done it to a 1000 GTL, but its done basically the same in all radio's.

I don't recommend doing it, especially since I am not 100% sure on how exactly to do it. I have never been in a 1000 gtl. If I had one in front of me I could tell you for sure how to do it.

If the reason for Variable power is a linear, just a swing kit in for the dead key you need, most likely 2 watts, and leave it.

Here is how to do a variable power mod. this is assuming the swing mod is done the same to this as a cobra 25/29 or uniden 68/76 etc.

If you would like to try it, here it is.

You get a TIP31 transistor, Radioshack has them.

Where you put the swing mod in the radio, which is a cap and a resistor, you put the TIP31 and cap. A 47uf cap works fine.

With the resistor facing you, and the tab in the back away, solder the cap to the transistor. the leg with the black stripe goes on the right most leg. then the other goes to the center leg of the transistor.

Solder a wire on the left most leg, long enough to reach the front of the radio. Now solder the 2 legs that don't have the wire on it, in the place where you would put the swing kit, with the black stripe on the cap facing the back of the radio usually.

Remove the wires from the RF gain and solder them together.

Now solder the wire from the transistor to the center tab.

Remove VR6 and solder a wire from the top tag of the RF gain to the top connection of VR6 that you removed.

Then connect a wire from the bottom tag to a ground point. The side of a tuning can works fine.

Take a piece of shrink tube and put it over the TIP31 so it does not ground against the heat sink, that would be bad.

This is done basically the same in all cb radio's.

SOURCE: tunring up a cobra 150 gtl/dx

Um... What?? This is hooked to a switch? CB radio by FCC regulations is only supposed to have a max of 4 watts total output. If you can flip it to 7 watts dead key, you are doing really good. It won't do much more then that. It sounds like its set up to run on a linear amplifier, which cannot have more then 3 watts dead key transmitting into it.

Dead key, and modulation are different. You may have a meter that only reads dead key, and won't see the modulation. This radio is probably swinging close to 15-20 watts. you need a meter that can read PEP, Peak envelope power. Cheap meters only read AVG, or average power, witch will only show your dead key.

7 watts dead key is really good for that radio.especially since stock only has 4 watts. you cannot get any higher then that without changing finals.

at 3 watt dead key, or 7 watt dead key, your modulation wattage is still swinging much higher.

Also, you will get more swing with a lower dead key any way, which is better if you want it to be loud.

Leave it alone. its probably set just right.

Check bias and check your SWR. Also make sure your coax is not excessively leaky, and also check the loading coil inside the antenna to make sure the coil connections have not become all corroded and that their connections are sound.

My name is kyle my cobra 200gtl face"nightwatch"plate went out.. yes i had it tested.. the cb shop say he dosn't have any in stock.. where can i get one?


You can check out e-bay. I have seen them on there. You can Google Cobra200 GTL Night Watch faceplate this though. I have done this before. Google CB shop. Don't matter where they are and see if they have a 200 GTL Night Watch face plates (both pieces) in a parts radio laying around. You may be surprised. Let me ask this, what went out on the faceplate? The cord or the leds? You can buy leds that change just like that on the net and simply replace them. Good luck to you. They are pretty radios and who can go wrong with Cobra?

Cobra 150 gtl dx nightwatch


You can send it into a factory authorized repair center, one is in TN that is highly recommended. This is an excellent radio if it has been adjusted properly and the factory mods have been done. Take a look at cbtricks.com for full info on the problems with these radios. Do not take to a regular repair shop; this is a SMT design(surface mount technology) and requires thousands of dollars of equipment and expertise to work on. Trust me I tried to adjust mine and messed it up and had to wait to have them reset it. This radio is very difficult to work on and should be sent into a factory rep. Contact cobra for repair station.

Cobra 200 gtl dx


Could the battery be dead? Other than that, it may be a bad solder joint inside the mic.
