Go to CB Tricks and look up the chassis in a Lafayette either SSB140 base or the SSB120 mobile, all have the same chassis and they are great talkers, I had one of those 6247's and am not happy that I ever sold it, guys on the radio would tell me how good it sounded, I had no idea it had such a good chassis in it

trucker, i think you are thinking of a different radio. the one you mentioned had the PLL02A chip in it.

his has the upd861 chip.

donemad,

the AMC is D7. if you clip it and the audio is distorted, try adding a 3.3K resistor in series with the anode (unbanded end) of D7.

the coils to tune for max modulated output are T13, T14, and T15.

its an ok radio, i wouldnt expect much out of it.

Hi Loosecanon, I don't know about what ship was in the PLL but I do know I used my Sams for the SSB140 to align and tune it, the pic of the board in the Sams has the pots in the exact place and the 6247 was a great talker just like the SSB120 and 140 that I had at the time. I still use the Lafayette SSB140 for a base in my garage after I sell all the toys that I was playing with out there LOL. Actually on Ebay right now there is a 6247 for sale brand new in a box, I'm going to bid a little and see where it goes. Happy Hurrican weekend if your on the east coast

I agree. I don't know what the fascination is with these old Cybernet hunkers from the 70's. You can't get any good swing out of most of them and too many of the modern radios, especially with mosfet finals, are far superior.

Some folks just like talking on antiques....it's fine if that's what you like.

i believe you, but you are talking about the 6247, and he has a 6237.
