Hello John. A good earth ground for your antenna is more important than for the radio. Using the closest possible point to the antenna pole, preferably within a couple of feet, you need to ground the antenna pole to the earth. Go to a hardware store and buy a copper grounding rod which will be eight foot long and buy, as little as you can possibly get away with, some of 10 gauge wire and some kind of clamps that will attach the wire to the antenna pole and to the grounding rod. Google "antenna earth grounding" may help also.

Gtl dx will not transmit below 26.955


First off, the 200 GTL DX is a 10 meter radio. Running it on 11 meters (CB) is illegal, as it is not FCC type accepted. If you go below 26.965 mhz, you are outside of the 11 meter band, and operating illegally.12 meters does not start until 24.930, so ultimately, the freq's between 24.930 and 26.965 mhz are restricted even to a licensed amateur radio operator.

Hello Jim. These radios do not work well with any power mic including the power echo mics because they have good modulation boards in them. But if you still want to try then check http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/cobra/200gtl_dx/index.htm

Talkback on a cobra 200 gtl dx


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.

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