Hello bluzfan, Do you remember the old 40 channel CBs? they used basic A3A transmission (dual sideband single carrier)remember how you got crosstalk sometimes, if your power was too high? Then they went to 80 channel CBs (using a single side band as Lower Side Band (lsb) and the other as the upper side band (usb))? more crosstalk but they invented anl (automatic noise limiter)circuitry to compensate. Now you have the 120 channel CB which uses a form of side band multiplexing (20QAM) to generate 3 times more channel density 40 X 3 = 120. Here is my problem; Cobra should not have done this because you will have massive crosstalk and unaudible sounds because of the increase in channels but not an increase in initial (physical)bandwidth. I hate to tell you this but the only cure for the is to use it in 40 channel or 80 channel mode forget the 120 channel mode, or get a radio with better channel separation.

Open the radio up and find the L22 Can/Pot. It's the one with the wire soldered on top. With both fine and coarse Claifier/Voice Locks in the 12 O'Clock positions, confirm, then listen for someone that is on the correct frequency and turn this pot (small ferrite core inside) with a small plastic preferred screwdriver, until they sound clear. Do this for USB as well except, the Can/Pot is L59. Don't adjust the VR5 (transmit) unless you need to.

This procedure is not as simple as just cutting a wire. Note that you can possibly mess your radio up if any maintenace is not done properly. I do suggest taking your radio to a proffesional to have the talkback removed, but, if you really want to do it yourself, go to ghe following link and basically reverse what has been done.

http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/cobra/150gtl_dx/tsb/cobra_200gtl_dx_tsb_10041.pdf

This is the service bulletin for the addition of talkback to the Cobra 150GTL DX and the Cobra 200GTL DX.

As long as the talkback was added correctly, this can be put back origional.

If this does or does not help, please reply on here or email me at rollincbmods@yahoo.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi,

Assuming no hardware faults, start with the basics, on powering on the radio:
1. RG Gain max clockwise;
2. Ch 9/NOR to Normal;
3. Delta Tune to mid position;
4. CB/PA to CB;
5. Squelch to minimum counter clockwise;
6. Channel selector to desired channel.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" again.

The initial posting would still hold true, best would be:

  • remove TR18;
  • replace 2SC2069 with 2SC1969; and
  • adjust L12, 13 & 14.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Connected marine radio to humminbird gps antenna but the radio will not show gps


Hi Ken
A little wiring 101 is in order here I think.
NMEA out (+ and -) from your GPS goes to NMEA in (+ and -) of your VHF.

Hope this helps you out

What size supply fuse


I = P/E Current = power/voltage
Therefore 25 watts of power divided by 12 volts if that is the battery voltage, equals about 2 amps. You should try a 3 or 4 amp fuse..

Cobra mr f55-d engine noise


Most of the problems associated to "whine" sound on radios can be eliminated by installing a noise filter(capacitor) in the feed line. This product is readily available at electronic supply stores and I not very expensive. It usually comes with installation instructions. Make sure it can handle the amperage.
Hope this helps.

Need a service manual need to modify a MR f55 radio to transmit on 161.600 mhz can you help?


Hello,
You want to be able to transmit to the Coast Station on this frequency I assume. The Coast Guard monitors channel 16 at all times. This would be the primary channel in the United States. Your radio is VHF Marine Radio and has a built in frequency range of 156.050 MHz to 163.275 MHz. There is no need for a modification. This is a duplex frequency. What that means is you will transmit on one frequency and receive on another, while on channel 20. You will not need to transmit on 161.600. Turn your radio to channel 20. When you transmit, you will transmit on 157.000. And when the Port responds to you your radio will automatically receive their signal on 161.600. So if you are trying to figure out how to communicate with the port authorities then for that frequency turn your radio to channel 20 and you will be able to communicate with them.

Regards, Tony

You would have to send it to Garmin unless you found a Marine Electronics dealer that had an old display in their shop. They could then replace your display. Good luck!
