    A few questions...

    Has anybody ever tried to do an in dash Galaxy 979 install? The dimensions are a little bigger than a cobra 25.

    Cobra 29LX problem

    Hey guys, my cobra 29 LX has a loose volume/squelch knob. I took the covers off and didn't see any screws or anything to tighten. Is there an easy fix? Also, is this just an annoyance or is the knob going to break or be inoperable? Thanks

    How much?

    Hey guys, How much would YOU pay for a Taiwan Cobra 148 gtl. Decent conditon, recap and alignment? I have heard a lot of good things about these radios... But some prices on the internet are way to high in my book. Maybe I'm just way off the mark... :) Thanks

    29 LX variable power

    Hey guys, I'm attempting to do a swing mod for my 29. 2 questions; for variable power they say you need 2 wires to run to the rf gain knob. What type/gauge wire should I use? Also, would a 30watt solding iron be sufficient? Thanks

    Amp question

    Hey guys, Just a quick question... Can't find a clear answer on the internet. Can you run a radio doing 5w dead key swinging to 20w into a X-force TNT 2 pill? If not that amp, which one could possibly? I know its better to have a lower dead key, but I cant do the mod right now. Thanks

    Your guys favorite fiberglass antenna choices

    I have fiberglass Wilson silver load. All of a sudden I couldn't get my swrs down. Must have been from the antenna getting knocked off/ around to much. I like to run something a little less eye catching than my 10-k. What fiberglass antennas have you guys liked using?
