1 Answer

I would guess that you have a bad audio chip or a bad component in the audio circuit ( most likely the chip ). I am assuming, from your discription that the sound is muffled? If you are infact getting bleedover from other channels, you may have a bad crystal or a bad PLL Chip. I hope this has helped.

Low pwr on xmit,weak rec,swr alert lite on xmit swr 1:4-1 on ch 20

you have no power because your radio is not tuned to your antenna.You get a new radio and put junky coax and a decent antenna and you expect it to work right. Get 75 ft of rg-213 and you will see a change.

My galaxy Dx 44v does not rec. or transmit when cold. I put my heater on it and in about ten minutes starts to sound like I'm off channel. Another ten minutes and I receive and transmit just fine.????

you should take it to a tech to check it out . there is a symptom called thermal intermittent.when the radio gets hot it stops transmitting.the oposite is also true and to find the problem a soldering iron would work but if you are not careful you could zap the radio..You would need a commercial thermal spot tester to accomplish thischeck the obvious first until you find the actual problem.

Get feedback during transmit over the audio. Rec. is OK. Tried it with the other unit several miles away and still has the squeal overriding the audio so bad that it is unintelligible.

Good Morning, New out of the box will not Tx or Rec. Powers up, no or very low squelch or volume. SWR meter has no movement

Sounds like the radio has never been setup or calibrated and this needs down by a radio shop before it will work. The channel freq. need to be set . I may be wrong but all Mine needed this done first .

Cobra 29 when you key the mike the channel lights, tran/rec light

I had a similar problem with another brand radio. My power supply I was running it on was not rated high enough in the amp category. Are you running on a power supply or battery?

Cobra 29 LTD classic LCD channel display replace

Hello, the channel display is kind of touchy, as far as getting to it and of course it is soldered to a small circuit board and there is a certain way it goes back in. There is about 9 legs on top and 9 on the bottom that need to be unsoldered and resoldered( carefully). You can buy them in red,green, and bue. The meter light is pretty straight forward. You have a hot and ground wire. I used to use colored LED lights in the meters, way cool. They are not hot, and they last almost forever. The LED's are fairly easy because if you hook it up backwards, it just won't do anything. Let me know if you feel comfortable doing the solder work, and take a look inside the bottom cover at the channel selector because it has to come out with the channel readout. I used to charge $25.00 just for that because it would take me an hour just for the ch. selector, and about 15 min. for the meter light. Let me know one way or the other,,, Mechanic

142 GTL Good AM Carrier Weak Modulation????

you may have to scope the finals circuit on the modulation to see if all the "inline" caps are installed correctly... be sure your pc board is grounded in all areas as required by specs in your manual. Make sure there is no bleedover and you are sheilding your crystals from the modulation platform. al
