They blow for all kinds of reason. Just replace them an check resistors around them. Caps should be checked as well. Just replacing mosfet is not usually enough. They have a way of taking other components out to.

What causes the rf MOSFET to go on a cobra 200gtl

mosfets are seemingly very unstable the culprit probably is too high of dead key on the radio back it down a little and no there is no upgrade also on that radio if someone is real close to you and keys up it can give you what is called front end overload and it will have no receive and will require a trip to the cb shop to correct this problem also if you use the extra channels in it they are hard to understand just what channel you are actually on .........I had one of these radios and I did NOT like it or the cobra 150 . they seem to be very fragile radios............good luck !!!!!

you may have burnt the diode that a variable controls or you messed with it and burnt it out.

I have a cobra 200. The receive is some distortied, Most signals appears to be overmodilating with normal volume.

When the signals you are receiving are too strong "over-modulated" turn back your RF which will turn down the sensitivity of your receiver. If they are still over-modulated it may well be the other person has their modulation turned up too high from changing the setting inside their radio, turning up their mic gain or having their power mic turned up too high.

Looking for motorola cb finals...Where can i find some. Please disregard if there is a charge. No new email too me other than this quiestion, please. thanks.

I believe you mean Mitsubishi 2SC1969. The eleflow 2sc1969 is a cheaper and equal if not better performer. There are a lot of fake 1969s out there.
I perfer irf520 mosfet more durable with high swr antenna system and cheaper Mouser.... have not used them but heard good things, RF Parts..expensive and Digikey.... expensive this place is cheap but very slow shipping 3 weeks for my stuff but good quality.

Yes, I found out what it was. the driver was bad. I guess these radios are very sensitive to static electricity like carpet shock. It will take the driver out. You can get it from RF Unlimited.
