Question about Cobra 148 GTL 120-Channels Base CB Radio
I just received a Cobra 2000 GTL from Ebay. When the radio is on there is a steady tone, similar to the sound of morse code is the speaker. The volume control has no effect on the tone. You can still hear other stations through the speaker, but the tone overwhelms it. I bought this radio used. It looks like someone tried to jump the PLL with the speaker switch, but they didn't change the PLL, it still has the MB8734. I removed the jumpers to the PLL.I plugged the speaker into all outlets, SP1, SP2, AUX, and even the headphone jack. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

It is a fairly common practice to make use of the CB/PA and/or speaker switch to modify this radio to add a few more channels (hot wiring the PLL pins). Perhaps your best option would be to rewire the unit back to factory specs. A schematic diagram would help you get them properly connected. This page is dedicated to Cobra 2000 GTL and have links to the schematics and other documents. This is of course assuming that you have a more than just familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron (knowing the MB8734 is PLL) .
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
