I was looking to buy a cobra 150 GTL however he states that the radio does not function on side band. What would most likely need to be repaired/replaced? Thank You. Ron.

    The radio does not opperate on Single Side Band. What happened was that I read the forsale article too quickly. In it the fellow states that the radio he has for sale has no SSB.Silly me having a quick glance at the photograph of the radio then I assume that the radio has SSB! In fact it was a band selection Knob! I am sorry for the trouble. I will read more carefully next time. Cheers Ron Pickett. BTW I know it's Illegal to opperate a export radio in The United States.Well I have spent 9 bucks more foolishly. Cheers! RonP

  • Well, it's not a Sideband radio. It's a Cobra 10,11,12 meter import. Nothing needs to be repaired or replaced. It's built different than a Cobra 148. Sideband cuts the wave in half and puts the entire signal in the upper band or lower band and has no carrier thus going farther with the same watts as an AM frequency will. If you want to use an import with Sideband then a Galaxy DX99V or similar would be the radio you want. Just FYI, in the United states, use of an import without a license is illegal and can get you a $10,000 fine and/or some jail time.

Regards, Tony

How do I increase power output for a cobra 148 gtl the latest Chinese version

best way is to leave the radio in piece and obtain a linear amplifier to do the job a 10 meter ham radio amplifier will do nicely but you must re-tune it for the 27 mhz band 10 meter band is 28 mhz.
RF amps work best using side-band mode.

Want to disconnect the bleep altogether on my cobra 148 gtldx

If this is a stock cobra 148 gtl 40 channel am plus side band, they don't to my knowledge come with a built in r beep. Some roger beeps are instaleed through the transmit circuit on the mic, so if not in the know Don't try to fix it.Some microphones have a beep built in. I used to install beeps on these radios using the pa/cb switch to turn them on. also try the nb switch or the swr/rf switch.
