    Cobra 29 ltd modulation light mod

    The video does, but the one in the old Cobra 29 shouldn't, it has an RF sniffer with a 5pf cap sampling RF output on TX, to "turn on" TR23 that turns on the Mod lamp. Modulation positive peaks increase the voltage feeding the mod lamp, thereby brightening it. No RF, no light.

    Texas star dx 350 hdv staying keyed up after transmission.

    When you change the jumper length, that changes the phase between the Final and the amp. This sometimes causes the amp (and Final) to go into self oscillation. Sometimes simple things like jumper length can make or break a system.
