Maxon wire fuses


If a inline fuse in a holder the old one will aside from length have the amperage printed on it---very few mobile radios use larger than a 3 amp fuse-----look on metal ends of old fuse if have it for markings like 3ag 3 250---3AG is size, 3 is 3 amp, 250 is max working voltage (120 is fine).

I have my cobra hooked up to a 5 foot fiberglass antenna an when my friend goes down the road I can only hear him for a mile but when he is sitting next to me he is picking up from 40 miles away with him...


Use a 8.5 feet(102 inches) That would be the size of this whip. One thing to do put it up high in the air in 15,30,45 feet lengths. Have heavy grounding like 4 metal rods drove into earth 6 ft. use a tower and also ground it to a big metal filing cabinet or water pipes. I found that your Electric meter box is grounded real well. Use big low loss coaxial 50 ohm in the lengths 9,18,27,36. Your hearing is through sometimes ground planes. Lets say you use a tower or Tv pole 30 feet. Mount your 102" in. whip on top- seperate it from 4 ground prongs by rigging PVC pipe in between. Make 4 Ground planes about 5 feet go out North,East,South,West. Run 30 feet of coax to your house. It should pick up better an transmit better. Check SWR (1.5 or so) SWR Varies 1.1-2.1 ratios. I never had no problems talking on mine 5 to 30 miles away. Turn up receive inside radio. Its near front ; may be white variable or chrome with screwdriver slot. Take speaker side off and look near left handside front when radio is upside down.

Sounds like you could have a bad soilder joint in the radio. If you hit the top or bottom of the radio does it help? If so its soilder. You match your antenna to your truck not the radio. You might want to recheck it.

My radio i can key up the light changes but


First off you can by any radio parts that you need and any good CB shop knows that.But if its only a little over a year old then you can send it back to factory and it'll be fixed free. There is a serial number on the back of the radio the first to digits is the year and the second two the month it was made so is a year or a little over a year old if so call 1-814-898-1046.

It powers up but has no static on the sqec. or anything


It's funny you bring this up I just repaired my 25 that I've had since 93 last night over the same thing.Mine turned out to be the speaker inside the radio the coil went bad.Also I just noticed you say you have a mic problem if you don't have a mic plugged in you won't get any sound unless you ground out I think it's pin 3.Anyway I'm sure that it's nothing serious those are very tough radios I've done alot of experimenting with mine and it's still one of the loudest radios out there,I use mine mostly for hash and trash I have alot of other radios but thats just my little kick *** workhorse.Feel free to email me with anymore questins on that radio at dand1009@hotmail.com.Good Luck
