Default channel mods


Anyone find any mods for this yet?

I found this off youtube. I was not able to get any extra freq with this. Mabe there more to it like a wire that has to be clipped first then it will work or possible different combanations of buttons have to be pushed

1) press the AM/USB/LSB & menu button together and turn radio on

2) Press menu button 4 times until you see v*.** (mine says v1.03) you can display something else by pressing talkback button (possibly a checksum - not sure)

3 )Press the weather button until reset appears on lcd.

4) to enter the reset press menu button radio will restart on ch19

Default 980 SSB

A good point Jon, No FM basically means the radio in this configuration was not designated for the European market so why incorporate the FM. The inclusion of FM would make it not type acceptable for the US CB market. Maybe Uniden decided there was a place in the market for a street legal 40ch CB and went after it. And in the process shut the door on modifying it.
Everybody needs at least one legal CB on the bench when the FCC come calling.....Well for you guys living in a police state that is!!

Hi Guys, I'm new here and definitely a greenhorn on CB and I do have a 980SSB, it's actually pretty nice. I sent it out to Snake Radios to maximize it's potential and I wasn't sure what SRC can do about this new radio. But here's the video of my 980SSB by Snake Radios.

The video blacks out from 2:16 to 4:00, just fast forward and enjoy the vid.

Thanks and it's on its way to me now

Hi,
How pricey is the work at Snake Radios?

The last time I needed radio work done was 10 years ago on a HR 2510 and Lincoln radio. I used Doc in Buffalo,NY. I was very happy with the work and the prices were very fair. Doc also didn't try to nickel and dime me with modifications that were not necessary. Sold the 2510 later. Still have the Lincoln, its a keeper Not sure if Doc is still servicing radios?
Although after seeing this on Ebay one has to wonder if Doc has moved to Florida?

I think the price is fair for the kind of work that he did for my radio (align, tune and mod) I paid $40 not including shipping. He also doesn't sell you mods that you don't need or mods that are not good for your radio.

He seemed a little confused as to what mods he could do to the radio. I think I would just do power and modulation adjustments for now, then wait for further info to become available.
