Re: B- kit

I think it would be better to buy an expo kit already built for your radio. There is other components on the board with the crystals and their values are very critical for tuning it exactly on frequency. Good luck with it,, Mechanic

I need to wire a silver salute mic to a cobra 142 gtl 5 pin what color wire goes towhat mic pin

dont go by colors.. go by what wires are on the switch and mic element.. mics can be rewired and no one told you the colors could have changed FYI..

Pin #1 ~ Audio
Pin #2 ~ Shield
Pin #3 ~ Receive
Pin #4 ~ Switch Wire
Pin #5 ~ Transmit

always go by connections not color of the wire. that way you learn and you can do any mic. to any radio.

Hi, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. Make sure that you are getting power to your unit by running the wire to the battery, hot (+) and ground (-), let me know if you still have no power and I will post solution here. Thanks for choosing FixYa....John

Question about my cobra 200

no need to increase power output. you can take a radio with 100 watts and a radio with 10 watts that had had a modulation kit installed and the 10 watt radio will out talk the 100 watt radio ALL day long. the best thing to do would to put a mod kit in it and have the dead key cut back to 1/2 watt then put as little amp behind it. with those mods it will be loud and clear. hope that helps
