Re: frequency counter keeps going off frequency

You might have a cold solder joint ( soldered connection broken from pc board ). Also another problem I have encountered is the variable capacitor that makes the frequency adjustment on the frequencie board may be bad. I hope this has helped. Good Luck

I have a cobra 148 GTL and I would like to know if you can install an external frequency counter on it and if so how?

It can be done and is like a 70-80 parts cost---Google the item or look at the several places that sell radios like the 148 who also sell a freq counter for it.

Not transmitting good at all on ssb the power come back

Did you have your radio "peaked?" If you turn a Cobra Sideband radio up to much it may be great for the AM side but can crush the Sideband side. Make sure it is on frequency too. Use a frequency counter to check. Make sure your SWR is 1-1:5 and no higher than two. You may have to take it to a tech and have them but it on a scope.

Cobra 148 won't stay on frequency, same frequency on all channels

If you have a frequency counter, and a set of TV repair tools,( a set of special screwdrivers) You can tune the transmit on it. I would not do this unless you are skilled in such things.

The easy thing to do is take it to a cb shop. Usually you can find them at truck stops. They usually charge $30 for an alignment.

If you think you can handle it, I can try to talk you through it.
